I'm not all up on the drama of this Star Citizen bullshit, but when this was all getting started I said to myself, "Hey, isn't Chris Roberts the dude that failed at everything after Wing Commander?"

Then I didn't buy the hypothetical game. I'm a pretty smart guy is what I'm trying to say, I guess.

Derek dude c'mon it's getting close to the witching hour here and I don't know how long I can hold myself back.



I mean this looks like a pretty good deal for a spaceship, right? And I'm reading about this "gray market" thing where there are some better options if you've got more than 45 smackers on you. I can go without lunch for a few weeks if it means a better spaceship and this website looks legit so you better hurry.

I can't believe there's no blog post. Despite the vitriol and the bad reputation Dr. Derek Smart has garnered over the years I still...believed, somehow. I dunno. Call it faith. Call it belief in the innate goodness of man. For better or worse I trusted Derek with my vast galactic fortune.

Unfortunately reality doesn't seem to mesh with my naive hopes; Derek Smart has run off with all my spaceships. All my investments. This was my little girl's college fund, Derek. What will I tell her now?

Well consider my eyes open, Mr. "Desktop Commander." The blinders are off, hope is dead, and my salad days lay far behind me.

I've got carpet, wood, tile, etc. It's an assortment of floor over here.

I even have a few types of not-floor, usually referred to as "ground." Usually I plant stuff in that rather than putting stuff on it. It's a little complicated to explain, I guess.

I'm sorry that reality doesn't fall neatly into the personal narrative you've constructed where all people who choose to spend money on a forum of their choosing suffer from some mental disorder that you get to play the hero and save them from. The reality is that people see something in the forum that excites them, and they are willing to spend money because of that.

Most companies have to pay for their street team, they got people to pay them to do it, seems like a marketing win to me
like if a product was actually coming out this would be a marketing masterclass, they've already got a massive base of loyal customers and a good amount of name recognition

A lot of this is based on the retarded amount of goodwill and nostalgia people have for the old Wing Commander games. I know a few people irl that are incredibly intelligent and not dopes in any sense of the word but have dropped literally 1000s into this poo poo because of WC and Chris Roberts.

"Chris Roberts was a foundation of my youth," or something equally cringey has come out in justification for it numerous times.

Am I the only NC resident who doesn't give two shits about NC vinegar?

I just don't like vinegar. Even pork bbq vinegar and I don't like sweet sauces either. Give me something with a bit of kick that's not too sweet and not vinegar and I'm happy.

If only I could remember the name of the place we stopped at in Memphis.

There was this sauce called Backfire BBQ sauce that I bought in the Outer Banks. Had Ghost Peppers and some other poo poo in it, no vinegar, and it tasted loving awesome. Can't find it online though, but if you see it you should buy it.

Some wrongheaded people boil ribs to make them more tender despite this causing the meat to lose all of its natural juice and flavor.

As a dude that smokes meat all the time this makes me unreasonably upset.
