Virgin review of GOT

This review is long. The guy butchers names and gets a lot of details wrong. Still, I have watched 3 of his reviews and find it very interesting to look at the show from the eyes of someone going in totally cold. It is very interesting how he is coming to very similar conclusions from just watching the show which in my eyes is just skimming the context. Clearly, the actors are doing their job of delivering the context beyond their lines.

Here You Go, You Milquetoasts!

It appears someone has made a game like Dwarf Fortress, but all nerfed out for pansies and the marginally trainable.

Did I say "pansies?" I meant "you pansies."

It's slightly on sale on Steam right now.

Hitler has dinosaurs


what put me in stitches was when the dinosaur runs up and throws a goat. I mean, okay I can buy that Hitler's genetic scientists in the 1940s could extra dinosaur DNA from fossils, and then apparently attach semi-robotic guns and slave them to the dino's small brain, but NO WAY can you teach a dinosaur to throw a goat.

Also, why? Was the dinosaur using the goat as a bullet sponge? Milk? Cheese? Maybe the goat ate some grenades and will explode 5 seconds after being thrown.

Further, maybe if the dinosaurs didn't spend so much time practicing their goat-throwing skills, they'd be more able to withstand some kung-fu moves. That dinosaur went down awful quick.

Definitely too much time spent studying goat strategy not enough time in the dino-dojo. I mean, the Japanese were Hitler's allies after all. This means there was plenty of opportunity to bring over top notch Aikido teachers.

I do like how even in this alternate universe they do cling to some immutable truths. If you watch, I don't think that Frenchman fights even once.
