Derek. Honest question.

When you walk into your lawyer's offices and say "I've been on the internet recently", do their mouths extend past their face in a shark like grin, or do they shake their head and ask you whose father they need to talk to.

It's kinda amazing in all these gifs that are getting posted the game somehow runs worst and buggier than stock crysis. How does that happen? I don't know a lot about coding do they have to rip out working systems to make it a space ship game?
You buy an icecream van to convert into a taco truck. It comes with a freezer to keep things cool, but you also need to heat things up so you install a microwave.

Chris Roberts decides he needs hotdogs, so now you also need a steamer. Then he decides your tacos need to be fresh so you also need a deep fryer, and you need a stove to do the mince as you can no longer do pre-prep at the beginning of the day.

Now it's very difficult to move around in your icecream taco hotdog truck and you forgot to install a fridge so all your ingredients have to be defrosted and taste like poo poo.

I was listening to the radio in my automobile device and they said processed meat can lead to cancer. They specifically listed hot dogs and bacon, but didn't talk about burgs/ground beef.

Does an intake of burgs lead to an increased risk of cancer?

Plausible theories:
a) imgur's deletion system has some sort of algorithm that compares reports to views and probably upvotes, so N delete votes won't kill every image.

b) It's not a 100% automated system.

c) It actually stopped a while ago once the news got to the top of r/starcitizen, and the last few deletions are still propagating through imgur's cache system. That would explain why some old stuff is still getting hit but new images on the last 10 pages seem safe.

If The Wuldge shows up later with "inside info" that it was all Derek Smart's doing, we'll know it was (c).
I think my favourite part is that reddit is convinced it's all a Derek Smart Joint simply because the OP has an image of him saying he's coming for their jpeg spaceships and they don't understand that "jpeg" is being used in this thread as a derogatory term for imaginary spaceships in the imaginary game Shart Citizen, rather than literally their uploaded images.

If they weren't legitimately handicapped then they wouldn't be Star Citizens in the first place now, would they?

Molyneux is a classic example.
His first game Entrepreneur was him putting his know-how as a failed software businessman into a game and that failing so hard that it only sold two copies.
After forming Bullfrog his big hit Populus was a happy accident.
Please tell the more correct and funnier version of that story, wherein he gave up on game design after his first game Entrepreneur failed so hard that it only sold two copies, then set up a company exporting baked beans to the Middle East - only returning after becoming a successful software businessman following Commodore mistaking his baked bean company for a software databasing one of vaguely similar name and asking him to code a database system for the Amiga.
