I remember some rumour that an early version was web/hypertext based, which would’ve been interesting to experience.

I still have very little evidence that anyone other than hypertext narrative writers and English Lit grad students actually read (traverse) hypertext narratives these days, though.

I kind of found the book sort of teaches you how to read it if you pay attention to the structure in the first few bits. But multiple bookmarks can help.

Remember: happiness has to be fought for.

I watched a few good playthroughs rather than playing myself, but do yourself a favour and go into it as blind as possible.

It’s been 16 hours since you’ve posted this. I can only hope you’re near the bottom of a looooong staircase at this point.

(Seriously, don’t sleep on this one - a lot of people get turned off by the experimental structure stuff but it’s 100% worth reading at least once)

As a former Maritimer, I feel robbed that I was exposed to Halifax donair and not this instead.

Donair sucks and donair pizza is an abomination, and I’ll fight anyone who says otherwise. This on the other hand sounds amazing.

Man, fuck society’s outdated edicts - as long as you’re able to feed yourself, you’re doing amazing in my book.

What now? A lot of options still on the table, but here’s something to think about: one element of the whole fatherhood thing is passing down the knowledge you’ve gathered from all of this for your child’s benefit/enrichment. But you aren’t going to have kids, which is fine. So - are there any other means to share your knowledge/experience with the next generation? Preferably in meatspace?

Best I can do are mushrooms that can give you a new lease on life, or at absolute worse psychosis.

Want some fire flower? I know a guy for that too.

I disagree that it’s without merit. Again, OP is not asking the question “Is God evil?” - they’ve come to that conclusion already and aren’t presenting it for debate. They’re asking if there is a term for this position. It’s a fair question, and probably an entry point for them to do additional reading and thinking on the idea (after which point it may or may not be revised). If there was a more even mix of theists, atheists, and folks in between who wonder about this stuff on Lemmy, I’d hope OP would come back to discuss the idea, but that’s not what’s happening rn.

If it helps, I’m coming at this as someone who believes in small g god - to borrow the Christian idea of the trinity, God the Father does not exist as an independent entity, God the Son is a more interesting discussion, but god the holy spirit does exist - rather than a pure atheist. Happy to yap about that more but it’s kind of off topic.

What I hate is that some folks I know who aren’t white have come to expect this kind of thing. Knew a great guy at work of Indian descent, got to meet him in person for the first time and I asked him where he was from. Normal question when you personally are an army brat and pinged around the country in your formative years.The response was “Well my grandparents are from India”.

I have never cringed so hard, and was quick to say “Shit, no, I meant did you grow up in Toronto, or did you used to live in some other place in Canada before?”. Made me think about how many people did that “No, where are you really from” shit with him before.

I’ve only heard the burnt toast thing in relation to a patient Dr. Wilder Penfield treated for recurrent seizures, where she would smell burnt toast before an episode. This led to developing the Montreal Procedure for epilepsy treatment.

To be honest, this type of library is the only way I see public libraries surviving long term.

Some of the best ones I’ve been to balance space for community activities and space for quiet reading/study. I’m hoping to have one of those bad boys here relatively soon (on one of the most historically interesting blights of land in my city, too).

So I have some family that lived in a gated community that used to be a resort for Golden Age Hollywood types. Their clubhouse/community building hadn’t been updated much since then, and it had one of these.

100% certain that a) group sex happened here, and b) at least one person broke their ankle in this thing. 90% sure there was at least one time both happened at once.

As progressive values become more mainstream being an edgy conservative becomes a form of counter culture.

This. There’s this idea that ‘the counterculture’ is inherently progressive. It ain’t.

To be fair, there’s still an element of what you can/can’t control as a people manager. Depending on the job, you can control the training your people get, the cadence of check ins, the deadlines/milestones they’re supposed to meet, etc.

You can’t directly control the people, and if someone doesn’t take any of what you provide re: support for them to do the thing despite your efforts, you can’t control that. But in turn, you can control performance improvement plans, 1-on-1s to figure out if there’s an underlying problem/cause that can be addressed, or failing all else, elements of the process that eventually show said person the door.

Doesn’t mean that all of this isn’t stressful as fuck, or that you’re not subject to downwards pressure too.

This is all an aside - I’m legit happy you’re doing better working for yourself!

Security guard - with the right post it can be any time, but night shift is your best bet.

Any business where locations exist simply to increase territory/coverage. Here in Canada, this includes certain cannabis retailers, vape shops, certain gas station locations, that kind of thing. Places where the job is clean stuff at a certain cadence, then wait for customers, where customer volume is kinda low. Obv don’t rely on these being forever jobs - the cannabis and vape store that fits this will eventually close - but you can get paid to basically study until then.

For a long time, I’d say accept that nothing was going to happen with this girl I fell for at the time, and focus on my writing (what I was in college for at the time, with an eye to getting into a great program at the uni down the road for slighty less total cost than just going there).

I’ve since learned it’s important not to focus on what you could’ve done differently in the past. It’s done, and it lead to wherever you are today. But boy, did that person - more accurately, the situation I found myself in re: that person - cause a series of events that included some pretty dark times.

But who’s to say life right now would be better for it?

Me, an early bird: If I could work 6-2 I’d be soooo happy.

Got to experience this several years back covering someone else’s shift. It was awesome.

One Christmas, my mother-in-law gave me an unopened bottle of whisky they had in their cabinet for a while. It was some of the best whisky I’ve ever had. About halfway through the bottle on Boxing Day, I took a moment to look up the cost (it’s since gone up in price, but you’ll get the idea)

I. Was. Horrified. I have exactly two ounces left, that I will probably consume with my wife on my deathbed.

Don’t downvote this guy, ‘bruhhhh’ is right.

The early GTA games are different, for sure, but they’re still fun games in their own right.

Only thing that really threw me off going back was no in-game map/radar.
