Bob Chipman RT @Dinosaur_Diego: Ok guys using the power of Twitter, how far around the world can you get me? Please RT! #OlympicPostcardChallenge https…
Bob Chipman RT @da_wessel: This is terrifying. Donald Trump literally only wants to win. No interest in actually serving our country. Pathetic. https:/…
Bob Chipman RT @RowanKaiser: remember when certain semi-prominent game site editors decided to go full GG after playing The Witcher 3? Witcher 3 didn't…
Bob Chipman RT @outlawvern: If getting banned from a service or place for being an asshole is something that happens to you sometimes, go do some soul…
Bob Chipman @Ambient_Malice @Ironic_Seppuku ..and that means I don't have time to indulge the fantasy that philosophical minutiae trumps results.
Bob Chipman @Ambient_Malice @Ironic_Seppuku Now drop me from this meaningless rhetorical debate-class circle-jerk. I'm a grown-ass man, and that means..
Bob Chipman @Ambient_Malice @Ironic_Seppuku The "alt-right" is a cancer on modernity, and ANY move that cuts them out of the discourse is a good move.
Bob Chipman @Ambient_Malice @Ironic_Seppuku ...doxxing and semen-covered photographs. Stop wasting my time on this South Park-y "Boooth Siiiiides!" crap
Bob Chipman @Ambient_Malice @Ironic_Seppuku ENOUGH of this disingenuous shit. The "fuck you's" in this case come in the form of outright racism...
Bob Chipman the LITERAL sense (as opposed to the "I just don't like Mean Mommy Hillary" sense) today. It's how the game is played.
Bob Chipman Yes, today they'd both be Democrats "too liberal" for most Red States, but when has that stopped anyone? JFK would be a neocon warmonger...
Bob Chipman You want historic symbols to cling to? Fine: Try "The Party of Lincoln and Teddy *Fucking* Roosevelt." At least they accomplished things.
Bob Chipman ...your relevancy, and you later paid for it in Trumpism. Take this opportunity and let Reagan Worship die already.
Bob Chipman ...lies in shambles right next to the Sovietism it was reacting against. You made a weaksauce version of John Wayne president to revive...
Bob Chipman though Reagan wasn't the START of the slide that led to you being the party of trump. Reagan is dead. Reaganomics' reputation...
Bob Chipman Hey, Republicans? Free tip for rebuilding your brand post-Trump: Stop doing the "Party of Lincoln and Reagan" thing for your standard...
Bob Chipman @Ambient_Malice @Ironic_Seppuku ..they're own additional restrictions for users within their borders.
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Meanwhile, highest economic growth this century was during 60's postwar reconstruction. Puff the Magic Dragon was released in 63. EAT IT
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw And as many have reminded me, thank you, The Hobbit was published during the Great Depression (1937)
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Skyrim's a grey area but you certainly have to kill a lot of dragons in that. Also consider WoW Cataclysm, Dragon's Dogma and Guild Wars 2.
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Recession ended in 02. Eragon published in 03. Next recession starts in 08. Dragons mainly pricks ever since.
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw As in, during a recession they're all greedy hoarding assholes we have to kill but in a boom they're gentle noble protectors and shit
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw I'm working on a theory that the treatment of dragons in popular fantasy reflects on the state of the global economy at the time
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw A Zero Punctuation twelve months in the making (except not really)
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw My new year's resolution is to tweet more. Here's a column I wrote about reinventing the wheel:
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Oh damn, I've just thought of what I should have called Assassin's Creed 3: "The Founding Faffers".
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Another enjoyable chat with the #desertbus chaps. Keep tuning in and keep donating. It's for the kids.
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Assuming things don't cock up again I'm calling into @DesertBus in about 15, so be sure to tune in
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Saw the word "BYE" sky written over Brisbane. Before more was added I was afraid we were about to be hit by a really classy terrorist strike
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Came into one of my locals for a quiet drink of a Sunday eve and @feliciaday happens to be there. Supanova weekend in old Brisbane town
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Okay, better get back to work and stop making people's twitter feeds not work safe
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Actually after that last tweet the words 'Cockromney' and 'Baracktwat' sprung to mind. Should've thought of that a day or two ago
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Compound swearing techniques! Try combining a swear with a two-syllable word with the same vowel. As in "cockgobble" and "twatracket".
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Compound swearing is all about mouth feel. It's basically exactly the same as wine tasting
Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw Cheering to see some people hashtagging #spunkgargleweewee 'cos compound swearing really is the least appreciated art form
