You know, if I was a parent, it would be at this point that I’d rip the game from his hands, stash it in my backpack, and force him to enjoy history goddamnit. This vacation cost a lot and the game is only for the hotel and travel time.
imagine trying to force someone to think that stonehenge is fun
"look kid we’re a ridiculous distance from a bunch of broken rocks how could you possibly be bored this is totally an appropriate vacation spot for someone this age."
The Kum and Go. Or as my mom called it, the ejaculate and evacuate.
Jizz and jet
shoot and scoot
blow your load and hit the road
bust ya nut and off ya strut
spill your seed and ride your steed
Skeet and retreat
No guys, I need to stop and talk about something in this movie and how fucking revolutionary it was; something that I haven’t seen in a movie before or since.
This is a movie about a kid who leaves her birth family.
Not a kid who find that they have a secret lineage or something that allows them to find their ‘true family’ - this is a movie about a kid whose true birth family is made up of bad people. So she gets out. And that is played as the right thing to do. She isn’t punished for it or made to feel bad about ‘abandoning her family’. There isn’t an underlying ‘but they’re your family and you have to love them’ or ‘they’re your family and they love you even if they don’t show it well or do hurtful things’ message of the kind that I see OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER in media. Matilda gets out and lives happily ever after because of it.
We need a million more movies like this to counter the metric shit ton of movies that directly counter this message.
I played StarCraft for the first time in a year. I grew up playing that game. When I was 8 my brother taught me all the cheat codes, and when I paused a game to go use the bathroom once, he turned off thr cheats so when I got back my things started dying.
When I was older I stayed inside all day playing Battle.net games. I would get trashed really hard when I didn’t play comp-stomps or team games.
But for the first time today, I installed the game on an old laptop I had laying around and then went straight to the custom games instead of the campaign. I did something I’ve never done: I used a worker to scout the opponent’s base and troll their workers away from the resources while I built my own stuff. I felt like one of those intense professional gamers in an arena in South Korea. I pumped out Zealots and built Pylons and cannons in the enemy’s base. I built a Shield Battery and moved my damaged units over to it. I started out from scratch and crushed the computer and it felt great.
straight boys think girls can’t take compliments, and that’s ridiculous cause i’ve seen so many girls compliment each other, i’ve seen conversations & friendships blossom from girls complimenting each other in line, on the street, at school waiting for the bus, pretty much anywhere.
the problem is straight boys think sexual harassment & assault are compliments.
Finnish language was originally a game where you take a word and then you try to add as much conjugations as possible. The game was born when the winter was too fucking cold to do anything and people sat around a fire trying to stay warm and not die. Since Finnish winter is 8 months long people eventually got bored, and came up with this game.
