i also like how no matter who you are if you are mad at someone n the internet you lump them in with gamergate tumblrina snowflakes as if that isn't some dumb strawman person

like those people don't exist really, there are some, but they are such a tiny part of the population that its hilarious how often they are invoked as some kind of boogeyman
It's like how Twitter is one of the most popular social networks but only 1/4 of people (in the U.S.) have one. And then only a tiny fraction actually use it. Or how 5 percent of forums posters contribute 90 percent of the posts.

Alternatively, a small number of Star Citizen users (i.e. addicts) are hardcore $$$ contributors. But that's the model. A small number of "whales" make up most of the revenue and profit. What other industries do this? Cigarettes, alcohol, casino gambling, scratch-off lotto tickets.

Greetings, Pseudo.

Thank you for your patience thus far. I am happy to confirm that I have actioned the refund for $255.00 USD via PayPal. This can take 5-10 working days for the funds to appear. Should you have any further questions or concerns let me know.

As this was a complete refund your account has been permanently de-activated. Should you wish to return in the future you can create a new account with the same details.

All the best,

Free at last! Lord I am free at last!

The greek meatball recipe from a few pages back is really cool and if I weren't such a lazy rear end I'd be making it this week.

Someday though, someday.

take a cup of greek yogurt and add like a tablespoon of minced garlic, a tablespoon of dill, a tablespoon of water, and half a teaspoon of sugar to make a p baller sauce

it is also good to dip cucumbers into

The man is definitely mentally ill and I'm going to assume that he is a trust fund baby. Throwing $20,000 away on something like that is completely insane unless you have no concept of money or how valuable it is. Even if he was playing the "I'm super rich, why are you poors complaining?" card, they still aren't going to dump $20,000 on some nebulous promise of possibly being able to fly spaceships years down the line.

Nah I'm gonna guess he's a lower middle class DINK that spends money on zilch because he has almost nothing in his life. Gonna guess he had pretty much nothing in his life and his wife got him the job he is currently not working at.

Yup. It's no accident it works out this way. Gamasutra wrote an article on the ethics of this kind of marketing a few years back.

8.2 M.P.G.


Top Cop

So I don't have any proof, but let me a bit.


I put in a refund for what I have left in Star Citizen towards the end of September. First I was responded to by Sandi, then another from an Amanda, and then nothing. Last response I had was the 28th of September from Amanda. I've been ignored since. My reason, I told them, for seeking a refund was the scope of the project and lack of progress, you know, that stuff. Since then though there has been the rumors that Sandi has a lackey running over this thread for dissenters and it ~just so happens~ that my RSI name is the same name I have on here. Considering how long of a stretch it's been since I've gotten a response vs. when I started the refund inquiry (going on a month now) it seems reasonable to me that Sandi is intentionally withholding a refund on my account because I have said things she prolly things is real mean. Again, I have no proof of this but all things considered it makes a little bit of sense taken into context of the whole fiasco.


Did you guys know that some banks will do chargebacks for old transactions, even from 2013?

i'll start

if you like cool punchmans stuff then you owe it to yourself to watch One Punch Man

the manga has been going for a while but the anime is two episodes in, its about a guy who trained so hard he can beat any enemy in one punch, but finds out how boring that actually is

its got some baller fight scenes



i also watched anti-magic academy

the main characters are basically inquisitors in training to catch witches / magical objects and destroy them

the first episode is straight up wish fulfillment harem anime complete with boob grab, but the 2nd episode really kicks in gear and has some baller fight scnes

Roasted Garlic Potatoes

Ingredients
3 pounds small red or white potatoes
1/4 cup good olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons minced garlic (6 cloves)
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Directions
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut the potatoes in half or quarters and place in a bowl with the olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic; toss until the potatoes are well coated. Transfer the potatoes to a sheet pan and spread out into 1 layer. Roast in the oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until browned and crisp. Flip twice with a spatula during cooking in order to ensure even browning.

Remove the potatoes from the oven, toss with parsley, season to taste, and serve hot.
