If your song doesn't make me want to punch someone in the face, lie on a soft rug, or make out in a parking lot, I am Not Interested In It

dear parents who justify using DNA genome sequencing services:

if you sequence your genome, you're also sequencing half of your kids' genomes.

if both parents sequence their genomes, then 100% of your kids genomes are also sequenced. why? because the data companies can create composite genomes which have a high likelihood of matching your kids.

so your kids will get to deal with the consequences of your indiscretion through higher health insurance costs and possible denials of care on genetic grounds.

in other words, you're contributing to making the world a worse place by having your genome sequenced by these for-profit companies.

beyond that the ancestry features don't even work: my mother is registered Choctaw with 1/4 blood quantum and yet the results said 97% white, 2% native american, 1% black.

this is because genetic testing for DNA markers and associating them racially is not real science, it's genetic homeopathy. anyone can carry any genes at any time.

anyway point is don't sell out your kids by using these for-profit services. they sell your data and the consequences are devastating.

found a legit incredible blog about obscure electronic games. beautifully observed write-ups of tons of games i've never encountered, such as this 1988 game by an afro-caribbean woman about subvertng and overthrowing a slave plantation:

Freedom: Rebels in the Darkness
obscuritory.com/strategy/freed

or a 2500+ level puzzle game that is almost literally impossible to complete:

Enigma

just great

if anyone knows a streamlined process for registering a hong kong domain name while having absolutely nothing to do with hong kong, please let me know, i have Plans

the one special thing about this piece of shit game is top fragging as sorlag and watching the entire enemy team switch to sorlag, presumably screaming "HOW MUCH OF MY PROBLEM WAS MY CHARACTER" in real life

saber interactive, why would you make a bot auto-join a free-for-all game and then give it under 10% MG accuracy

isn't this, like, the single thing bots are supposed to be good at

quake champions is a fuck

time to roll my own AP implementation where absolutely nothing works

seriously though please consider an alternate 1992 in which Creative did not (perhaps through corporate malfeasance) beat the Adlib Gold to market, and this beast ended up being the primary sound card that Doom's soundtrack targeted: youtube.com/watch?v=sGJ5zqjtgH

eschatos time attack is the smartest thing anyone has ever done, heard or thought of, and that's a goddamn fact
