Fox, you are officially retards. "New management" my arse.
(Emp, you have me saying 'arse' now. Curses! I invoke your name with 50% less capitalization as protest.)

There's a new burninator in town.
Title: With Apologies to Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri

We are all aware that the senses can be deceived, the eyes fooled.
But how can we be sure our senses are not being deceived at any
particular time, or even all the time? Might I just be a brain in
a tank somewhere, tricked all my life into believing in the events
of this world by some insane computer? And does my life gain or lose
meaning based on my reaction to such solipsism?

Title: I'm optimistic about the TT
Posted: June 26, 2009 (01:50 AM)
Can I defeat EmP in single combat? Probably not.
But can Sash and Zipp defeat DoI and DE, respectively? I'm much more confident in this prospect.
All in all, I think our eloquently verbose team of TT rookies is off to a good start. The dark horse of the tournament, perhaps? We shall see.
Title: It's wet.

By which I mean the weather here in Victoria. It's rainy and wet and cold, and summer has barely begun! Heck, we didn't even get a proper spring, between the snow and rain and...well, cold. It's been an unusually cold year here.
Aside, I think I've figured out how to approximate Celcius-Farrenheit conversions in my head. And the TT officially begins tomorrow, zomg.
Title: Friggin FF7

I swear the next time I see a 10/10 review for FF7 in the random box I'm going to go postal.
That, or write a long-overdue bash review.

Yeah. I played a game with Kerberos' lead developer.

Title: Time for a logic lesson
Posted: February 24, 2009 (02:22 AM)
Okay yeah, my two proofs are flawed. Duh. Like you can use logic to make theological statements at all.
But so far, all anybody's objected to is a premise. What the objections amount to is a discussion of semantics, but that's beside the point; if the only problem with the proof is with a premise, then the logic must be sound.
As I discussed earlier with Wolfqueen on AIM, I find it curious so far that nobody has correctly identified the logical flaw in these proofs. Again, I stress that rejecting a premise is not the same as pointing out a flaw in the logic. Perhaps there is some vague sense that something is wrong, but without the proper cognitive tools to work with the lay mind seizes the first apparently irrelevant statement it sees as a sort of one-of-these-things-is-not-like-the-others reflex; i.e. "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition".
So I issue a challenge. The first person (not counting WQ because I told her, or EmP because he's English) to correctly identify the logical flaw in the previous two proofs (it's the same flaw in each) will get...something...befitting their achievement. Bonus points if you find flaws I did not anticipate, though for either task you'll need to contend with my counter-arguments. :)
I'll let Pup take the first shot. Should be easy, since you spotted "quite a few" flaws in the second one.
Hint: The flaw has not to do with terms like "nobody". That's a question of vocabulary, not logic.
Title: A Further Logical Proof
Posted: February 20, 2009 (04:00 PM)
Taking the conclusion of my last proof as a premise of this one...
Premise 1: God is nobody
Premise 2: Nobody can do anything
God can do anything.
If God can do anything, God can exist.
Title: A Logical Proof
Posted: February 18, 2009 (09:52 PM)
Premise 1: God is all-knowing
Premise 2: If x knows of y, x must expect y
If God is all-knowing, God must know of the Spanish Inquisition
If God knows of the Spanish Inquisition, God must expect the Spanish Inquisition
God expects the Spanish Inquisition
Premise 3: Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition
God is Nobody.
God does not exist
Title: Silly EmP gave me an RPG to preview
Posted: February 10, 2009 (04:49 AM)
I'm the RTS guy, not the generic fantasy RPG guy, jeez!
And to make matters worse he hasn't even entered the game into the database yet, so I must wait until he wakes up, reads this message, adds the game data, and I wake up a few hours later. Then and only then can I rid myself of this project and get on to what he assures me is a highly-respected sci-fi strategy title.
So if you happen to see the Mad Englishman, tell him to hop to it. I suppose I could just send off an HGmail (or even *gasp a regular email), but a blog post has the added benefit of letting other people laugh at the fact that OMG WILL DID AN RPG.

I write my best work ever, and drella picks his RotW week to go batshit insane.
Hurrah. Hey, maybe if I expand this blog entry and make some random references to a game I can submit it as a review and win the next RotW! Worked for this hmd, anyway!
