commented on "Not Racist," Republican Style

commented on Hateful Homophobe Orson Scott Card to Write Books for Kids
I always thought of Ender's game as a kid's book, which is probably why I didn't like it when I read it at 21. It's easy to understand why a book about a young teenage boy saving the universe by playing video games is a lot more appealing to young teenage boys than to anyone else.
commented on Inside the Creation of the Creating Game
"I imagine the creation of most video games as a fairly straightforward procedure involving a lot of coding and testing and talking and other boring office-type procedures."
That's actually pretty much the exact opposite of the way it is.
commented on iPads vs. Monopods: Which Is More Obnoxious?
You know.. at a show with an audience that actually gave a fuck, the ipad wouldn't work. If it was anything with a tempo he'd be worried about accidentally getting jostled by dancers and dropping it. Or if it was an acoustic singer/songwriter like in the first pic , people would be swaying and putting their arms around their neighbors during the affecting parts.
WTF is wrong with you kids today? Get off my lawn.
commented on Feds Will Allow Legal Pot Industry in WA, CO
I'd still love to hear someone explain what the rational basis for point 3 is. Why do the states (and feds) want Idaho's weed to be supplied by cartels and criminals instead of our local regulated, background-checked businesses?
