makes me wonder if a marvel movie where thor fucks banner would be well received or shrugged off as blatantly made purely for the female gaze
either way it would be well worth it for the massive temper tantrum being thrown by the nerds who complained about a black guy being in star wars etc

IIRC it was used with a travelling floppy, so you'd put in the special floppy and it would sync, then you get home and the files get semi-automatically transferred.
i grew up with navigator on our lovely little pentium machine and never knew about this

i mostly just used it to get to 3d dinosaur adventure

japanese doesnt share any roots with other languages and it's not really clear where it came from at all :shrug:

Notorious b.s.d. posted:

the thing to consider is that japanese itself is the root of a family of languages. many "dialects" of japanese are not mutually intelligible

the difference between a dialect and a language is an army and a flag

e.g. the "chinese language" which is actually a family of languages as rich in complexity and difference as, for example, all the romance languages
okay but japanese dialects are a lot more mutually intelligible than, say, mandarin and cantonese, as i understand it

also, koreans are generally not taught hanja in school anymore as it is seen as a remnant of japanese imperialism. this is actually a bit of a shame as it makes learning japanese/chinese a lot easier

I'd installed Civilization II on the hard-disk drive so I didn't need the CD-ROM in the drive while playing, but if there was one in there with music tracks on it, it would play them without any checking for which disc it was.

So I once accidentally played Civ II with background music from Interstate 76. It wasn't a bad experience.

L Computers, the vaporware desktop computer company that promised then-insane technology like a "puram" ssd and probably never shipped consumers a single unit. they did ship a computer to maximum pc that had a rat's nest wiring job and basically none of the things promised in the ads. they still raised millions from dumbass investors

i dont get how they went out of business. i think their main competitors were tigerdirect and newegg (which was good back then.) but monarch was better than both of them.

i bought a physical copy of this in a store once, lol. it was amazing.

afaik bleem is the only emulator that was out at the same time as a major console and provided better performance and graphics on PC. it was written entirely in assembly and was just way fuckin better than anything else out there. with bleem i just had no reason to want a playstation, i could play twisted metal 4 all day for 40 bucks at higher res and with a better framerate.
