Put fascists and sociopaths on your ignore list.

Quote

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

That marble machine was neat, but a bit disappointed it wasn't actually music from Marble Madness...

The guy wasn't an engineer. Apparently it basically fell apart after making that youtube video.

He started a crowdsourcing thing and spent three years and a lot of his own money trying to create a grander version he could take on tour... But alas, as a non-engineer he was way in over his head , had to scrap and restart from the beginning multiple times and burnt out on it.

I've never really listened to Infected Mushroom as music before, I've only ever had it as background music in PnP playlists, but they're pretty damn good I think

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

I still think that nVidia should've made their RTX demo with a digital version of this. It would've fit perfectly

This guy made a pretty good music video for this song. Good old days of Youtube

Took me a bit to place the singer/voice.
Also, I still think we should move to Canada. Except ... the snow, the cold. nvm.

I still don't know what the heck to call it (my brain would probably explode if I really tried to work it out), but who cares? I've been binge watching Eivor a bit on youtube.
