BlameBlair: You should!

Nightvalien28: DO IT
CosmicDuctTape: you could, too!
PhoenixMelior: you SHOULD
ReynardWrecca: That's...tempting.
NimrodXIV: hat what subs are for. :D
PMAvers: Man, pay Cam money to read things.
WearingCats_CwC: Doesn't Graham offer exactly that?
Nightvalien28: we do these things every november
AgentMagicMaster: uh
ajthesatyr: lmao
AgentMagicMaster: !adult ?
EvilBadman: go hogwild
SK__Ren: Hahaha
Izandai: Anyone got $50?
Baldrash: The talking part, or the tonguing our ass part?
t3h_f1gm3nt: hayter loves MGS memes and just loves doing the snake voice. he was a fan of MGS Awesome by Egorapter back in the day, as well as the infamous "Crab Battle" animation
Rockario: Sure, LRR folks have time to be recording lines for everyone who asks lrrBEEJ
CastleOtranto: Now THAT was a punchline.
Laurence72: I would buy a Cam narrated audiobook
tenthtechpriest: we DO pay LRR money to read things. it's called sub messages.
BlameBlair: I think it's called Dessert buss or something.
Tempest2097: Well played
ajthesatyr: WOO!

ReynardWrecca: Mono-take Masters.
Kytactical: Did you all do that in one take??
PhoenixMelior: the music was loud over the outro
AmoriLinguae: I couldn't really hear the coming up
margieargie: Music on that last bit was a little loud compared to the voice, I think.
ArgentGriever: ONE TAKE BABY
RayFK: Yo I was expecting the line "and for $50 he won't just talk about it"
Mastertoenail: SAY PENCIL!
GapFiller: evening Jordan
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: I usually just pay you to read things during DB, didn't know we could do that all year round

coolbond: Dear DR Beej have you heard of Tondemo Skill de Isekai Hourou Meshi?
OneEpeeThrust: Guys, Beej is OK tonguing your ass!
CosmicDuctTape: you could totally get on Cameo
Mysticman89: I was expecting it to be "and for 50 dollars, he'll actually do it" or something real spicy like that
Sektor88: I don't need to hear beej talk about tongue punching the fartbox, but I'm sure someone would.
PhoenixMelior: what even is Cameo
PharaohBender27: Will Beej ever get listed in the credits?

EikoandMog: GIlbert Gottfried is on there for $150.
margieargie: Perfect!
PhoenixMelior: good enough
r10pez10: A+
dougma: Kathleen, you could bring back kathleen subscriber commercials!!! For just $1K per.
Foxmar320: Pokemon Go players will also be able to catch shiny Rattata and Pidgy soon
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: thank you Blanche
AshBurnem: Grind 'em into candy.
BlameBlair: Les go Mystic!
couldntpickausername: new commercials? *perks up*
HavenJunde: #teamMystic for life
rogerivany: Mystic, ugh, at least your not valor I guess. ;)
heartlandmedia: Geez.....compared to what he was paid to be the AFLAC duck? $150 is cheap.
ArgentGriever: I'd like to see the oracle of theros again
mtvcdm: Bring back 80% of a subscriber commercial. It just cuts off right before the end.
PhoenixMelior: I've been Instinct this whole time, he's much friendlier about it
Akaiatana: The yellow team leader is so kind about the pokemon
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: some day that pidgey will find the trainer who loves them anyway
Izandai: Where does the candy come from then?
Alness49: "The same deviled exeggecute"
Rockario: The candy is an exchange program to encourage catch-and-release. It's a remarkably successful program
Mysticman89: I have nenver actually played pokemon go, but I have to support team mystic for name coincidence reasons
Sektor88: I'm valor
Sektor88: :P
richard_ermen: Pidgy....apparently from the Flintstones.
BlameBlair: No changing Kathleen! Don't leave us!
hey_strawberry: pokemon is like the scientology of geocashing games
PhoenixMelior: he just says "needs improvement" and "kinda basic"
notarealartist: i've never played pokemon go
EvilBadman: We can get the GREAT KHALI for $30 on Cameo. Woooooo
Agu_Sakku: yay Instinct!
notarealartist: should i play it?
Foxmar320: Im Mystic and everything is Valor here
Alness49: Who are you and what have you done with Kathleen?!?
rogerivany: Yes, Instinct is best
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: Kathleen, you know how they say every Pokemon is someone's favorite somewhere? I met a guy at the last Community Day with a Weezing tattoo.
jimbo99999: pokketFOOD
CosmicDuctTape: oh wow Stormy Daniels is on Cameo for $250
Rhynerd: Yay, instinct friends!
Orgmastron: Eff yeah Team Instinct! *dabs*
ThePerrBearr: that's what a second account is for
PhoenixMelior: I saw Kathleen's tweet about it, even
FlyingUltraCar: I should get back into pokemon go, I went hard into it a few months ago but my phone's battery can't handle the cold weather
r10pez10: paul! paul! paul!
Rockario: Weezing at least played a major role in the anime
rogerivany: St. John's is a mystic city too.
the_canuck_mystic: THAT SOUNDS AWESOME!
Baldrash: @ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews Can confirm, I'm all about dat Venonat.
TheArchitectX: D&D, the hobby with homework.
BlameBlair: Wait, people actually play for team instinct? fifiBlank
Lucaan: I'm stoked for Dice Friends later. Bylaw and Order has been such an incredible campaign to watch.
KV1NN4: I like yellow so, Instinct
Tempest2097: I am glad it is helping you
CosmicDuctTape: positive effects are good!
the_canuck_mystic: RIP Crapshoot ?
FlyingUltraCar: I'd rather you guys be able to do stuff than have a crapshoot
t3h_f1gm3nt: i really need to get around to watching all of Bylaw and Order. the clips i've seen from it are hilarious
PhoenixMelior: the_canuck_mystic yes, that's why there's been no more crapshoot
CrazymattCaptain: with the crapshoot gone will there be more loading time footage of shooting crapshots?
SajuukSjet: the_canuck_mystic: rather, RIP 'The Crapshot', the live production/writing portion
PharaohBender27: @the_canuck_mystic Yeah, Graham made a video about it
the_canuck_mystic: No more, I thought it was weekly?
Earthenone: !crapshoot
LRRbot: Please see for information on the future of Crapshots and, more relevantly, the Crapshoot stream.
the_canuck_mystic: Graham did a video where I think he said it's weekly now?
Earthenone: we have a command for that :)
TheMerricat: @the_canuck_mystic LRRBot just linked it above you.
ThePerrBearr: yay staff meetngs!
FurthestChunk55: he said that the shots themselves are once a week
the_canuck_mystic: @LoadingReadyRun thank you Paul, that's what I misunderstood.
r10pez10: real good
FurthestChunk55: the crapshoot stream is no more
wicker_knight: frankly, that seems better. Now the team can focus on writing without feeling the need to also interact with chat
the_canuck_mystic: Thanks folks!

CodeGorilla: Deece Adam impression, Kathleen.
Tempest2097: Reggie is good people.
wicker_knight: Bowser has Ascended
TLBlitz: Side note: Very proud of Shanghai finally winning a match
Izandai: And maybe they go to say it but then they feel weird about it and hesitate and now this nonsense is negatively impacting the team's performance.
TheMerricat: I don't know about Overwatch but CS:GO tournaments don't air team coms
EvilBadman: Reggie was responsible for the Bigfoot and Big New Yorker Pizzas
Alness49: Reggie's passion was palpable. He was the man Nintendo needed
CosmicDuctTape: E3 2004
korvys: What's your degree in, Beej?
KartoffelKaiser: Godspeed, Reggie. May your body be ready for a well deserved retirement.
Mysticman89: I've been rewatching all the checkpoints right from PA days, and actually watched the checkpoint about whatever console having voice chat
Dared00: Have you seen Doug Bowser's doggo:
PharaohBender27: That's legit impressive
Iciilix: A face
TheMerricat: They were both suits Paul.
MaladyDark: japan has pulled back a bunch of the regional bosses and replaced them with people from head office. it's an interesting choice
Alness49: I think like Iwata, he put his name and face on the product. And we knew it was genuine.
EvilBadman: History will never look fondly on the Nester run Nintendo
wicker_knight: Commodore Hustle Reggie
Zhedor: some sort of segara sanshiro?
Izandai: To the surprise of no one, an American man has a better idea of how to market to Americans than a Japanese man would.
CosmicDuctTape: And I think that helped allow Iwata and Miyamoto to become more "characters"
APODionysus: Oh god nester
MaladyDark: Nintendo AU really seemed to need someone better
Invitare: I believe he actually had over a hundred hours in Animal Crossing: New Leaf
APODionysus: I remember the nester comics in Nintendo Power
t3h_f1gm3nt: reggie was a hell of a hype man
Rockario: The general vibe/reputation that Nintendo has probably helped make his strategy work
Rhynerd: Was Reggie the reaosn behind the Pizza Hut Demo Disks?
PandasAndPancakes: His commitment to his own mythology was unparalleled.
Alness49: He was often spotted "in the wild" with his consoles on the go. That is all the endorsement he needs
PhoenixMelior: PandasAndPancakes it truly was
PhoenixMelior: His body was always ready.
CosmicDuctTape: I love Kotaku's recent article about the history of asking Reggie about Mother 3
coolbond: the only memorable people in the gaming dev world is/was satoru, miyamoto, reggie, suda and Kojima any other is honestly a drop in the bucket
GDwarf: coolbond Yoko Taro
FurthestChunk55: cilffy b
coolbond: who?
Invitare: Hideki Kamiya
FurthestChunk55: *cliffy
hoktauri: I can't think of any terrible things he's done so that's a high bar for others.
CaptainSpam: Will Wright.
GDwarf: Who wears an Emil mask all the time now, and before that communicated via puppets
FurthestChunk55: Yoko Taro is the Nier guy
Sektor88: @GDwarf Yoko taro is batshit crazy and I love him for it
GDwarf: coolbond Drakengard and NieR
r10pez10: can't follow that act
wicker_knight: @coolbond Peter Molyneux Kappa
MindWarrr: Maybe next ceo will be Peach
FurthestChunk55: there's more than five people in the industry
coolbond: ah right kamiya right i forgot platinum
togashinaruta: Pizza, Beer, Rock Music- sounds like the video game lifestyle to me
PhoenixMelior: coolbond also Iwata
Sektor88: Also I miss Tak Fuji from his 99 nights 2 Days. lol.
PhoenixMelior: oh wait sorry
PhoenixMelior: I missed Satoru
coolbond: as i said satoru iwata
kingshadow2442: lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW
wicker_knight: because it IS funny :P
korvys: Bowsette wasn't around in 2015 :P
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: Reggie's retiring to spend more time playing Switch with his family :D
wicker_knight: He could have been milkshake-ducked
CosmicDuctTape: and the Switch is doing well
EvilBadman: Reggie needs more time for Animal Crossing
PhoenixMelior: he just wants to play Mario with his kids
CosmicDuctTape: so he's going out on top
wicker_knight: really glad he wasn't milkshake-ducked
GDwarf: coolbond: Definitely search for images of Yoko Taro
Dared00: IMO, Fils-Aime -> Bowser will be like Tretton -> Layden at Sony - he'll be less cool and more "proffesional", but eventually still liked
Alness49: Also the E3 shows he put on with Robot Chicken and the Jim Henson company are just a whimsical delight
FurthestChunk55: Remember the Regginator?
FurthestChunk55: where Mega64 replaced him with a robot copy?
Nightvalien28: he is going out as a not horrible monster that fires people, like blizzard or activision, to be fair the bar is low
MindWarrr: Kathleen! Next tournament ?
FurthestChunk55: sorry, the Reggie Fils-A-Mech
togashinaruta: Reggie is someone that you believe actually wants to spend time with his family
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: Fallout 76's roadmap seriously sounds like an outline for Destiny 2 at launch so...ambitious but could be cool?
coolbond: but honestly there aint a lot of current guys in game dev or publishing that are actually identifiable without being associated with shit like overhyping(peter molenux or whatever his name is) or a has been that has not done anything but beeing a name to put on things(will wright)
Tempest2097: The technical aspects of a game do not a game make
kait2345: hi
Earthenone: yeah, they like selling tech tests these days
TheMerricat: The age of rock star developers is over.
DoodlestheGreat: I like what Jim Sterling had to say about games announcing "roadmaps." "ROADMAPS? I'm already at the gas station and there's no coffee!"
coolbond: how hard is it to hire people with character to deal with the public!
Izandai: Obligatory mention of No Man's Sky.
TheOtherTrevor: New crossing the streams Sea of Theves?
r10pez10: it's almost like early access isn't a great idea
PhoenixMelior: I like when Atlus - DAMMIT KATHLEEN
Zhedor: Hard? not at all. But risky
Tempest2097: Put. It. Out. When. It's DONE.
SK__Ren: Yeah, you tell them
Lazarus_18: @coolbond Don't forget about Fork Parker!
wicker_knight: @coolbond I mean...Kevin Levine? But I think it's basically a result of the size of games especially with no auter movement. I don't particularly miss it tbh
FurthestChunk55: especially in today's climate
SK__Ren: Put i tback in teh oven
Foxmar320: Anthem is having the same problem :(
FurthestChunk55: where people will get eaten fuckin' alive on social media
t3h_f1gm3nt: "When its done!" - Adam and James, in the early days of cH
GDwarf: Cue everyone with that Miyamoto quote about good games and bad games
wicker_knight: I'd much rather have good managers than good hype people running games, and then they can hire good hype people
wicker_knight: Granted, modern video gaming tends to have neither
PhoenixMelior: anyway, yes, I don't buy too many games that aren't Japanese these days. At least I know the new Fire Emblem game or KH3 is feature complete
PhoenixMelior: (well, I hope.)
FurthestChunk55: look at how the internet fuckin' went at hello games for those percieved slights
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: "when it's done" has become such a meme with games like Half-Life 3 and Star Citizen but...there is a strong argument to be made for releasing the game when people can have a good game experience rather than ragging on it, leaving, and maybe coming back later when you actually add the fun parts.
TheMerricat: But the thing is Beej, places like Activision and EA are nowhere near being 'strapped for cash' they just do this because they want more share value.
GDwarf: coolbond I mean, being a public face isn't really...necessary to making good games? Most film directors, editors, writers, etc. also aren't public faces
DoodlestheGreat: Gee, Respawn released a feature-complete, relatively error-free game the week before and Bioware can't do it after six years of screwing around?
Amentur: Tbf Anthem is very much done as a "Game as a service" , @LoadingReadyRun . So they took a page from the MMO guidelines and are releasing their stuff over a longer time period
coolbond: i know but that also means they are not memorable at all
FurthestChunk55: yeah, rock star directors aren't really a thing now either
FurthestChunk55: the people who made a thing do not need to be memorable
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: Anthem's appearance has yet to grab me TBH. It looks pretty much how I thought a Destiny aesthetic would look once passed through the EA homogenizing mediocrity marketing machine
wicker_knight: @ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews it's real scary for shareholder-owned outfits though, since it means unpredictable revenue streams. A good producer system could handle that risk, but the industry doesn't seem to have those
FurthestChunk55: "being memorable" is not a useful skill for actually making a video game
TheMerricat: @FurthestChunk55 I would argue that the internet went after Hello Games for intentionally lying.
FurthestChunk55: it's good for PR, but not for the game director's actual job
Foxmar320: wow
Alness49: Remember, if you die in Pokemon Go you die in real life!
Sektor88: yikes
OneEpeeThrust: That's amazing
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: yikes
APODionysus: Waaaat
Tempest2097: Maybe don't punch the police?
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: I mean, I can sympathize, but also...yikes.
Tempest2097: If you don
Tempest2097: If you don't have to.
wicker_knight: eh, so it goes. moron probably will get what they deserve
Tempest2097: Just don't
BlueMechanic: They finally added Smeargle today
r10pez10: don't punch police officers
PhoenixMelior: I would love to play Pokemon Go more, if it wasn't -25 outside and has been for the past month.
TheMerricat: Maybe especially don't punch Japanese police....
MolaMolaphant: wait, how does smeargle work in pokemon go?
Sektor88: one of my friends' mothers has caught them all.
FurthestChunk55: @TheMerricat I would argue that you missed the point of what I was saying
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: that reminds me: Paul, Beej, Kathleen, did you see the excellent Polygon Anthem review that Anthem's mechs need truck nuts? Joking premise but actual good criticisms in there.
PharaohBender27: Oh wow
Izandai: Secondhand nostalgia?
r10pez10: i would never have guessed that
Alness49: Also, great bonding topic for Grandkids
Rhynerd: So, like my Mom?
Sektor88: @MolaMolaphant probably just copies the quick move of the enemy?
BlueMechanic: Smeargle occasionally photobombs pictures in the new camera mode
Foxmar320: Tomorrow is Pokemon Go community celebration day. New shinys
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: yeah the vast majority of people I meet at EX raids are my age or older. Those are the people who have cars who can drive to raids midday.
KV1NN4: Pokemon Go is my gym, i try to hatch ~8 or more eggs a week, i pay ~$20 a month for more incubaters
TheMerricat: @FurthestChunk55 there is being 'eaten alive' on social media for misstating things, and there is being a blatant liar to the point where you were on talk shows and saying bullshit.
BlueMechanic: then you can catch it and it has the moves of the pokemon it photobombed
kingshadow2442: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: CheckPoint+ (Graham, Kathleen & Paul bring you the latest video game news) at Mon 02:00 PM PST (45m ago).
wicker_knight: at a school
jakale: or your back lawn where people try to climb your fence
PhoenixMelior: or that one holocaust museum, if memory serves
FurthestChunk55: @TheMerricat that's not the point i'm making though
Foxmar320: There is a cemetery near here with 3 gyms in it.
Tempest2097: @PhoenixMelior And hospitals
Izandai: what
Earthenone: where else would you go to find ghost pokemon?
wicker_knight: in fairness, cemetaries are great places to jog
PharaohBender27: @ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews That scans. Retirees and teens are always the most reliable demographics for "Do a thing outside midday on a weekday"
Tempest2097: Yeah, Ghost type Pokemon in the Holocaust museum? VERY BAD.
FurthestChunk55: whether they lied or not isn't the point
wicker_knight: they're quiet, pretty, the paths are usually good...
PharaohBender27: @Tempest2097 Holy fucking shit
Izandai: People are selfish.
Alness49: People are People
PhoenixMelior: I think people are dumb.
r10pez10: unknowingly doing a bad
FurthestChunk55: the point is that having a visible game director can be a very big risk
wicker_knight: stupid//shitty is frankly distinction//difference?
jakale: people are fine until it's inconvenient to be
Earthenone: in the imortal words of kathleen, "people are chaotic dumb"
Izandai: People are self-centered.
PhoenixMelior: Like I imagine most people MEAN WELL but we're just really really DUMB
FurthestChunk55: hello games took that risk and hoo boy it didn't go well
BlueMechanic: It wasn't ghost pokemon at the holocaust museum that were bad so much as Koffing, the toxic gas pokemon, appearing there
Iciilix: People are smart, a person is dumb.
Fruan: Deep down, we are all Ellenor Shellstrop
The_Voices: dumb panicky animals!
FurthestChunk55: i don't even care if they lied
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: no better way to find the edge cases you never thought of in your automatic stop/gym creation algorithm than by releasing it to the public. It's like when Apple Maps came out and had all these hilarious mistakes that Google Maps had had but also had pointed out and fixed years ago.
TheMerricat: People are no shitty and people aren't stupid. People are oblivious. They have a hard time remembering to apply their brains to what they are doing all the time.
GapFiller: it feels this is plottable onna graph with stupidity on one axis and shittiness on the other
Foxmar320: Driving while playing Pokemon Go is already a bad idea
r10pez10: sample size
KartoffelKaiser: It only takes 1 careless person out of millions to make a news story
Izandai: That's a good point. And the reason that's a news story is because that doesn't happen often.
kingshadow2442: Kappa
GapFiller: a Dunning Krugerrand graph if yr will
Tempest2097: The ability of human brains to spend attention and time and thought is... not as great as advertised.
KartoffelKaiser: How about "don't punch anyone"
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: Yeah there was a message on one of the Raid Day announcements reminding people in large groups to be courteous to others using that space.
wicker_knight: maybe integrate with those public service apps like "STOP LOOKING AT YOUR PHONE WHILE DRIVING"
EvilBadman: i think don't punch a cop may be a slightly different result in the US
accountmadeforants: "Your activities here will be recorded and may be submitted as evidence. For the love of god, BEHAVE."
Tempest2097: I hope they finally figured out a "There are no Pokemon here out of respect" zone type solution
Earthenone: so you can punch cops once a year!
Rhynerd: Honestly, a pokemon raid system that could account for park closing times would be good.
TheMerricat: That's what's getting Google in trouble with NY Police Beej, because Waze lists police traffic stops.
CosmicDuctTape: g'night everybody!
PhoenixMelior: if only there was Team Rocket
kenkopin: False flag
PharaohBender27: Yeah, that wouldn't work in the US - well, unless you're rich and white
Alness49: You can take the boy out of Instinct...
CosmicDuctTape is not actually leaving
TehAmelie: once a year? isn't that The Purge?
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: there are no-spawn zones. Niantic does have the tools. I think it's more that Niantic is a few people trying to think of every possible problematic case ahead of time and naturally missing a large number.
PhoenixMelior: oh yeah, is that WotC stuff news?
wicker_knight: yeah, which is frankly the mistake. A good response system to complaints would be better than all but the most comprehensive of predictive systems. I'm guessing both are too expensive though, so they're just trying to do whatever they can
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: most of the "yiiiiikes" cases of bad stops/gyms got fixed pretty quickly after they were pointed out. I think cemeteries no longer spawn anything at all
MolaMolaphant: oh, did we hit Riot Games decrying when a team banned all support champs against the all-women pro team?
OKB_1: Good evening point checkers!
Tempest2097: That seems like a bad way to get feeder teams.
Mysticman89: ah right, I heard about that support debacle.
Izandai: @ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews That's unfortunate. If people weren't shitty, cemeteries could be hotspots for ghost-types.
MolaMolaphant: Another team got called out for prolonging a game to rack up more kills. It's...rough.
Izandai: Which would be AWESOME.
wicker_knight: sportsball
Earthenone: meat sports
wicker_knight: meatball?
NathanJay_GA: o/
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: it would be, but I think it's probably for the best. Even having a few random people wandering around just catching pokemon probably wouldn't be great for people who are there for deeply sad occasions
Mysticman89: the curveball is the all women team did consist of all support mains apparently.
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: someone got the meatball?
wicker_knight: cloudy with a chance of meatballs?
Izandai: @ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews Yeah, that's true.
mtvcdm: Most of the time the pro team straight up owns the farm team.
EvilBadman: ^Also this, in baseball
Rockario: This feels like bitcoin, we're inventing a sports league from scratch and learning all about why they work the way they do
Nocxia: Fun fact! the Maine mariners is the farm teem for the new York Rangers. Figure THAT out
wicker_knight: *cough cough* PLAYERS UNIONS *cough*
OKB_1: Or in the case of European football, where the fans and the sponsors own the team.

wicker_knight: they're trying to bootstrap an incredibly complicated thing, it's gonna be rough
Alness49: Someone has made the same mistakes you have made. Rip off what works
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: yeah like the bitcoin people being like "we don't need the FDIC!" and then having bank runs and millions stolen
OKB_1: My guess is that e-sports needs to have some open source, public domain game everyone can play and no-one truly owns, like soccer.
coriolis_storm: @nocxia Maybe it's a 'surf & turf' strategy? The mariners cover the sea and the rangers cover the land? ;-)
Booster6: i think part of the problem is we more or less know baseball, basketball etc will still be here in 5 or 10 years. We dont know that is true for overwatch
EvilBadman: Seattle has an XFL team because sure, why not
TheMerricat: Again? is that the third time?
Baldrash: It's a legit sports league, supposedly. But we'll see.
EvilBadman: TheMerricat Second.
strangelee: ah yeah, the aliens are back
korvys: 2nd, but one time he also made a Bodybuilding league...
lostindagame: but e sports cant really work like actual sport cause I don't see people still playing overwatch in 2 years
PharaohBender27: Also, didn't the XFL change football rules to the point that it was actually boring to watch?
PMAvers: Well, it has one giant boob named Vince.
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: Did you guys see the Polygon video on the design of the mechs in Anthem? Framed like a joke, but makes some excellent points.
wicker_knight: @lostindagame People still play CS Go competitively
aWabbajack: man yells at cloud?
TheArchitectX: The only hope I have for the XFL is that he raids the NCAA rosters and pays those players.
TimbrePanic: Adam's Vince McMahon is the only one I accept
OKB_1: Oh oh oh. Can my Sims life in legally distinct Not Stranger Things Town?

wicker_knight: Overwatch may not work, but something will. I do agree that turning it into a functioning league system is a bigger challenge than is commonly discussed
TheMerricat: When was the last Sim you played Paul? They were head deep in lore even in 2.
Lucaan: Putting people in a pool and deleting the ladder
strangelee: No Paul, that's still exactly what the Sims is
margieargie: They've had that the whole time, just nobody pays attention to it.
wicker_knight: wait, there are people in the Sim's? It's not a home-building architecture simulator?
HavenJunde: the sims is whatever you want it to be
EvilBadman: @PharaohBender27 No, it kinda eliminated some of the slower parts, but there's no audience for two football leagues
OKB_1: The Sims is many things to many people
Tempest2097: Oh boy Glitches
r10pez10: ghost towns
rf232: oh, so FO76 meets RDR2?
Alness49: This sounds like a creepypasta
Tempest2097: That's SO CREEPY AND AWESOME
Lazarus_18: Oh, so teir emulating 76 Kappa

kenkopin: @ajthesatyr Beat me to it :)
DoodlestheGreat: Oh! What about the guy who was banned from playing Fallout 76 after being there 900 hours?
Tempest2097: @TimbrePanic I WOULD SO PLAY THAT
strangelee: I missed it, was this a multiplayer bug?
Tuxbeej: Also, SB Nation did a great episode of The Worst about the only XFL championship.
EvilBadman: Y'all joke, but some the zones in RDR2 are spooky as shit
wicker_knight: @strangelee correct. Online mode on XBoxOne
ajthesatyr: That is great
EvilBadman: Namely, the Bayou
kamelion84: katesLol
GapFiller: Ghost Horse!
Foxmar320: ok thats not a glitch thats a feature
KartoffelKaiser: I want to look at your horse but I cannot
aWabbajack: mrweebSnekBuns mrweebSnekMid mrweebSnekHead
NathanJay_GA: lrrSPOOP
DirtCadaver: gundam style
TimbrePanic: Tempest2097 I'm surprised we haven;t had a western horror game yet
t3h_f1gm3nt: lrrSPOOP
aWabbajack: mrweebSnekBuns mrweebSnekMid lrrWOW
Tempest2097: @TimbrePanic Seriously
PMAvers: He pulls out a coconut.
NeckbeardedDrago: ghost ride the whip?
OKB_1: That's not a horse. That's way too fast!
strangelee: This could be a way to do some neat machinima
PMAvers: And Monty Python's around
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: I say fix the glitch for the horses and turn this into some kind of terrifying storyline where you've been bopped into the Upside-Down somehow.
brainbosh: Is this a new Fortnite dance?
BlueMechanic: I am always appreciative of Neneh Cherry references
PharaohBender27: It's an invisible pogo stick!
AmoriLinguae: those stirrups are super low
aWabbajack: mrweebHypeham mrweebShroom mrweebBadger
Alness49: But does the coat clip normally?
r10pez10: the coat does not clip normally iirc
EvilBadman: that horse's balls are invisibly retracting
ajthesatyr: That almost makes me want to play RDR2
korvys: The toggle just says "Horses: On/Off"
Camail: Null horse
wicker_knight: GhostHorse On/Off
KartoffelKaiser: "This is not a horse" but in french
PMAvers: The horse's balls retracted so far it went negative and pulled the rest of the horse into itself.
Wynterburne: == !horse
Tempest2097: Ghost Horse, Ghost Horse, He's Ghost!
darkecologist: my grandpappy got sold an invisible horse
TheMerricat: Minecraft skeleton horses!
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: you can ride skeleton horses in Minecraft too
DirtCadaver: riding though the desert with a horse with no body
strangelee: they were in Undead Nightmare so maybe some future DLC
EvilBadman: RDR1 had the 4 Horse of Apoc
MolaMolaphant: you can't register the skeletal horse, in BotW though :(
korvys: I don't have a horse, Beej
LordZarano: Cest ne pas une pard?
Tempest2097: I mean why not
Rhynerd: That’s for Undead Nightmare 2
wicker_knight: benginWat
NeckbeardedDrago: You can get married in FFXIV for free, actually
OKB_1: Cute
r10pez10: when i grow up i want to be a thousandaire
GDwarf: In-game marriages are quite cute
yomidian: confirmed, I would spend $30,000 to make yoship talk at my irl wedding
Tempest2097: Oh that's cute.
Camail: do you get the tandem mount
TimbrePanic: Can you be a cat boy irl?
strangelee: But can they make all my guests tiny goblin people?
Foxmar320: Thts really cool just expensive
r10pez10: okay that's pretty nice actually
yomidian: there is a replica of the chocobo, yes @Camail
Riandisa: Planning to run an anniversary event in 14 with my friend after the new races are added
wicker_knight: huh. I mean, if it's a good service I don't have a problem with this
MolaMolaphant: oh wow, this is not what I thought this story was talking about.
flyingdelorion: C'est ne pas une cheval
voslan: Hey Checkpoint Team, So what do y'all think of Chuckle Fish making it's money back for Wargroove in 3 days?
yomidian: it's Legit Adorable
ajthesatyr: Can you get Beej to officiate?
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: good lord, the layers of reference and inversion's a real-life version of a game version of a real-life wedding and now my brain is imploding
KartoffelKaiser: ok if I could get married as a cat boy that's an expense I would consider
Tempest2097: 30k wedding is CHEAP
Camail: time to get a weeb vegas wedding
wicker_knight: I was definitely expecting a ripoff based on the premise
EvilBadman: You get to eat Chocobo, like a true king
OKB_1: Woah dude… If you marry in Final Fantasy you marry in REAL LIFE!
TheMerricat: "Couples in Japan will soon be able to replicate Final Fantasy 14's in-game weddings, called Ceremonies of Eternal Bonding, in real life thanks to a new service launched by Square Enix and wedding planning company Bridal Hearts."
Alness49: "Will you take them to have and to hold, in Esuna, and in Break?"
EJGRgunner: 400/head is nice, but not obscene
miniwak: it translates to i think about £24,00 which isn't too expensive but still a tiny bit on the steep side
miniwak: *£24,000
Akaiatana: Beej and Kathleen are such a power couple! Kappa
Rivulatus_: IU have done a lot of catering at fancy weddings, 30k is what just we charged at times, for 100 people
yomidian: but can I cut the cake with a Bravura Zenith (read: huge-ass glowing axe)
TheMerricat: "The first mock wedding using the service was conducted on February 14 in Kobe, Japan. The bride and groom, selected from a lottery of 247 couples,"
gryfeathr: There's sometimes a "formal" wedding for family and then a "fun" wedding ceremony
Mazrae: hello hello
azlan121: the weddings I work on, the production bill is usually £50k plus at least
wicker_knight: it's more expensive, and having a planning company do it does seem nice
azlan121: let alone catering, venue etc...
Earthenone: also, you dont have to actualy DO things
azlan121: so that doesn't seem bad
GapFiller: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 58:58.
Riandisa: There are prop weapons you can carry
yomidian: FF14 is Popular, my friends
PharaohBender27: I remember when two friends of mine (whose wedding I attended) were talking about how having it at a barn let them choose their own caterers, which saved them $10k, I was like, "OK, I do NOT want to know how much the whole thing cost"
OKB_1: And planning a wedding yourself is super stressful from what I understand. So it's probably worth it.
KartoffelKaiser: FF14 turned out really good after they completely remade it.
r10pez10: the vows are quick because they're just "..."
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: if I got to carry a foam sword at a wedding it would make every wedding I've ever had to sit through about 1000% more interesting.
TimbrePanic: Haaaha
kenkopin: Wow, Plays don't run that long. You could have a cast of extras on call.

SajuukSjet: hahahahahhaha
TimbrePanic: You don't get Peak Bus in Weddings
NathanJay_GA: Weddings are a freakin racket. Im in the wromg industry
Tempest2097: And also your planning skills
strangelee: Mandatory desert bus prior to all weddings
yomidian: @r10pez10 <nods silently> <bumps fist into other palm with a serious expression>
Taveena: Wedding Bus For Hope
AquariumPrime: Its beej!!! I never see the man
chi7891: LOL
MolaMolaphant: "easier than desert bus" is our new marker for this
Taveena: Oh, god, Wedding Zeta Shift
wicker_knight: Also a wedding where you don't have to stuff the children into suits and they get to be kitty-elves would be great :P
Alness49: You got 50 nerds into a room. Two families should be no problem
TheMerricat: Confirmed - Desert Bus is excellent training for wedding planning!
flyingdelorion: I loved planning my wedding and much less difficult than my normal work I agree Kathleen
Perchipy: This is actually absurdly cheaper than how much a wedding costs in China
AquariumPrime: Last time i caught a Beej stream, he was playing Shante
OKB_1: Ok. That's not fair Kathleen. Most people don't know the borden of DB.
r10pez10: grats fayili...!
chaostreader: I was about to say a wedding is easier than DB
OKB_1: burden*
chi7891: There needs to be a wedding during desert bus now
PharaohBender27: My Mom's the type who's like, "Why have a big wedding?" which is why she married her first husband at a courthouse with two friends as witnesses, and married my Dad in the house we grew up in with a total of seven guests
EJGRgunner: I'm also willing to bet you've got some low-maintenance family members. Wrangling aunts, uncles, step-relatives, etc. is a big part of the hassle. And the various showers and parties people expect to be a part of.
AquariumPrime: DB wedding XD
PhoenixMelior: my friend planned a wedding in a city she didn't live in. She got lucky though, the only issue was that the coordinator got snowed in and we had to put on her dress in a weird building holding up a shawl
OKB_1: Desert Wedding for Hope
AquariumPrime: We should have a beej drop Weeding.
Orgmastron: @chi7891 Kate & Jamie "renewed their vows" once
EvilBadman: We had a funeral for beej last year. Kappa
Akaiatana: Desert Bus: Free Bride
TimbrePanic: as long as there's no gangnam hell
Mazrae: wedding bus
GDwarf: Crash Weddings
PMAvers: Andrew accepts this as a challenge.
r10pez10: kate and jamie renewed their vows a couple times right
lunarecliptica: that would make a hell of an entrance admittedly
chi7891: @orgmastron Oh that’s cool
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: my very chill friends got legally married at a courthouse, planning a fancier ceremony for much later, and then their respective parents freaked the eff out and mde everything awful :P
banachspacebar: wedding crashing another wedding
Ilecto: after getting stuck at several friends weddings, we splurged on one thing for ours - someone we didn't know did the dishes
AquariumPrime: Crash course wedding.
Paranundrox: didn't Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer have a flash wedding?
Earthenone: you can probobly convince surge to feed the volunteers your weding cake if you really want to
GapFiller: didnt Dan end up marrying under a bridge?
PharaohBender27: @ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews So sorry to hear that
strangelee: The priest walks into the building and just starts spewing out ceremonies
Akaiatana: @Paul was it Confederation park that was closed?
AquariumPrime: XD
GapFiller: Called It!
NeuterCommuter: Just go to Bayshore in Ottawa, the park there would do fine for a flash wedding.
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: I went to a very chill small wedding in Providence on a restaurant patio. The major splurge was on super cool custom Mario-themed cupcakes. To this day it was the only time I've ever seen the groom in pants rather than shorts.
Alness49: You can have Gravy at the wedding if you wish!
MaladyDark: I want a wedding for <15 people
AquariumPrime: Beej!!! I am interested in what your playing if your playing any game
EvilBadman: We got courthouse married and then did the big dumb wedding one the 1 year anniversary. Less stress
Tempest2097: I was at a wedding once where the couple had a couple's first Dance Dance revolution
MolaMolaphant: the cake is gravy, the booze is gravy, the family is gravy, I'm gonna be sick...
GapFiller: theoretically getting married is just a matter of going to the registry office and signing
Fayili: The point of our day is to have a big party since we'll already have been married for two months :P
GapFiller: theoretically
r10pez10: getting paid twice
tenthtechpriest: you got to have your refund and eat it too
wicker_knight: so just go to that solicitor, get that contract, find the information about your taxes, move on with your life
GapFiller: nobody I know has ever done that
Tempest2097: It was probably the most fun wedding I've been to
MaladyDark: places here don't offer weddings that small in the info brochures
AquariumPrime: also Beej looks like he should be a Nintendo Executive.
mahpete_: instuctions unclear. married a gravy cake.
DirtCadaver: anakin... the character no one will want to play.
Mowdownjoe: They already have Darth vader!
PharaohBender27: Child Anakin or adult Anakin?
Tempest2097: But does he even show up on Tattooine?
EJGRgunner: I hate Battlefront. It's coarse and it gets everywhere.
A_Catastrophic_Success: We spent $6000 for our wedding at a bed & breakfast that had all the extras as one giant package. Photographer, cake, videographer, a dj, and a wedding planner. It was great.
MolaMolaphant: Does Anakin do bonus damage based on the age of the opposing players?
wicker_knight: @GapFiller That was my parent's "wedding" (they were grad students at the time)
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: Anakin's Revenge of the Sith outfit was easily the best of the three. Not saying much, but it definitely was.
Alness49: So what are the requirements to evolve to Darth Vader?
PharaohBender27: Of course
Camail: sigh, memes.
ritchards: Do you automatically win against Anakin if you have the high ground?
korvys: The burnt toast version?
SajuukSjet: YESSS
Tempest2097: YES
DirtCadaver: ha... slaughtering children seems appropriate now
r10pez10: why is it always snakes
GapFiller: wicker_knight there yr go then theres one instance of people doing that
AquariumPrime: @Alness49 you got to kill 20 children who are playing the game
strangelee: It's such a bad line for the scene it's in
TheMerricat: "Romantic"
AquariumPrime: PODME
KartoffelKaiser: "I hate sand. It's course and gets everywhere" is a line from one of the prequels.
wicker_knight: it was a very poor line read by Hayden Christensen
korvys: Unpopular opinion - I agree with him about sand. Sand sucks.
Alness49: @AquariumPrime So 20 players, gotcha
TimbrePanic: Podme racing
PharaohBender27: It was a major example of how crappily the prequels were written
EvilBadman: I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. Not like here.
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: Anakin delivered this super intense line about how much he hates sand and somehow this is supposed to be dramatic.
SovietPedobear: It's coarse and it gets everywhere
Znazl: its coarse
Foxmar320: Yeah it was just bad
AquariumPrime: Now this is Podme raceing
OKB_1: "I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere."
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: it's the symbol for how terribly-written those movies were.
pokeclone64: have you seen plinkett reviews
strangelee: Padme's all like, Sand is so nice and he just throws down that line
aWabbajack: good excuse not to go to beach I suppose
SajuukSjet: It's such a running joke now, in the fandom >D
immortallen: It's course abd gets everywhere
Taveena: Padme is talking about how she loved the beach. Anakin's response is "I HATE SAND. IT'S ROUGH AND COARSE AND IT GETS EVERYWHERE"
Tempest2097: Appropriate.
Alness49: When she invites you for netflix and chill and you talk about how you hate sand
MolaMolaphant: I would think tattooine sand would be very fine...
aWabbajack: First date off key comment: I HATE saaand
korvys: Unpopular opinion - I agree with him about sand. Sand sucks. It was a terrible line, and terrible acting, BUT HE'S RIGHT, DAMMIT
GapFiller: yr have to feel bad for Hayden Christiansen
GapFiller: dude can act
Tempest2097: @GapFiller I really don't
AquariumPrime: XD
t3h_f1gm3nt: OOF
r10pez10: uh
Lucaan: I hate when people say that the prequels are better than the sequels. Like, I get it, the sequels aren't great, but they are definitely far better than the prequels.
GapFiller: but yr watch him in the prequels and yr think to yrself
Tempest2097: I can feel bad for Jake Lloyd.
TehAmelie: Douglas Adams observed that sand was the key to the four most transformative inventions in human history. but yeah it's annoying
AquariumPrime: sand is a neuteral thing
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: no, it's just Anakin bitching. Right after Padme says she likes the beach, too.
wicker_knight: @GapFiller I mean, I hope he got well paid. A lot of very good actors turned in very bad performances in those movies.
strangelee: listen, there's all kinds of sand consistancy, but it's just bad writing
Akaiatana: Anakin liking sand is the gritty reboot
Camail: i like sand, its warm
AquariumPrime: Sand is the Serge of the planet
korvys: :P
gsumbreon: George Lucas was proud that the first draft of the script was used in filming. no revisions.
Skudd: He grew up as a slave on Tatooine, so it makes sense for his character to hate sand.
Tempest2097: @gsumbreon EGHHEGHGHEHGHEGHG
t3h_f1gm3nt: Hayden wasn't a bad actor. The script was just BAD
AquariumPrime: its super good at filtering stuff and makes pretty janky decks.
PhoenixMelior: yeah, yeah she is.
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: Hayden Christianson got handed some INCREDIBLY trash dialogue.
EJGRgunner: I think it's "Shattered Glass"
PharaohBender27: Maybe George Lucas isn't a good writer?
Lucaan: Not even the best actor in the universe can save the dumpster fire that is the prequels
TimbrePanic: Purple Light Saber, talk about Sam Jackson getting what he wanted
Fruan: Fun fact - glass is made out of sand
TehAmelie: Natalie Portman is very good but not in Star Wars
Metric_Furlong: Shattered Glass, and yeah he was quite good in it
strangelee: @PharaohBender27 you don't say?
Tempest2097: @PharaohBender27 I don't think there's a maybe about it anymore.

margieargie: I strongly disagree on their acting jobs in those movies, but apparently I like things I'm not allowed to like so...
OKB_1: Portman is so dulll in the prequels… everybody is dull.
wicker_knight: Yeah, I think it's telling that Portman's experience with the prequels was why she wanted out of the MCU
Ilecto: the main issue with the prequels is that nobody said "Stop George that's dumb"
r10pez10: that's a bad sign
korvys: Shattered glass, which is MADE OF SAND - HOW DEEP DOES THIS CONSPIRACY GO?
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: hell, we know you revise Crapshots.
AquariumPrime: storm count is at 37, time to cast shock
KartoffelKaiser: There does not exist a writer on the face of the planet whose work should be used un-edited. Editing is really imporant!
PharaohBender27: "You can type this shit, George, but you can't say it!" Actual thing Harrison Ford said to George Lucas during filming of the ORIGINAL trilogy
KartoffelKaiser: *important
EvilBadman: The walkie talkie in an earlier cH was actually a gun
OKB_1: <insert Plinked reviews here>
EJGRgunner: OTOH, Christensen also wasn't great in "Life as a House"
PhoenixMelior: what a whirlwind trip this Checkpoint has been
GapFiller: the prequels are exhibit a in repsonses to people skriking and mithering that Disney shdnt be doing Star Wars
t3h_f1gm3nt: PREACH IT, KATHLEEN
richard_ermen: If I remember correctly, Stanley Kubrick once said "A good director can make any actor great. You just have to get them mad." And he did. Gave Shirley Duvall a nervous breakdown during the filming in Shining.
PhoenixMelior: open the show with Fursonas, close with opinions on Star Wars
Lysander_Gustav: His wife was the editor of the original trilogy. He divorced his wife before the new trilogy
DirtCadaver: the movie would have been so much better if everyone spoke wookie and it was subtitled
MaladyDark: mmm lunch
NathanJay_GA: What I dont get are the "darth jar jar" hypotheses
Tempest2097: I honestly feel like Star Wars should be just... left alone now
ThorSokar: There's a behind-the-scenes shot where everyone in the ROOM knows they made a bad movie, and no one is brave enough to tell George, it's disconcerting
Tempest2097: No more please.
Lucaan: I'm ready to watch you DM PogChamp
AquariumPrime: benginLol
Mysticman89: maybe mix in a multivitamin too.
Wynterburne: where do you get cans of peanut butter?!
PhoenixMelior: my stomach is already turning at the sounds of that
korvys: And all the good Star Wars movies, which, by all accounts, only are as good as they are because people were able to tell Lucas to back odd
korvys: *off
wicker_knight: @richard_ermen Well, a bad director can make almost any actor "bad" to be sure.
Rockario: Nutella is hazlenut and cocoa
Invitare: in the UK you can get dark chocolate spread
Camail: peanut butter is just, such a great mouth feel
incredulouspasserby: I legit can't eat peanut butter without jelly. It's just so bloody sticky
AquariumPrime: Kathleen dosn't eat alot got it.
wicker_knight: @korvys or weren't directed by him at all (e.g. Empire)
MaladyDark: there's a fresh press nutbutter palce opened up in my city. it's nice
TheMerricat: Kathleen, we love you. Please eat better. :-P
KartoffelKaiser: I appreciate the honesty of just putting cocoa in a jar of penut butter and saying "We know you're just going to eat this. It's not a spread just put it in your damn mouth"
GapFiller: just remaindered that theres a jar of almond butter that needs taking care of
OKB_1: If CmdHussle told us anything Kathleen only needs protein bars.
r10pez10: just a spoonful of vegemite
NeuterCommuter: Somebody fetch Kathleen some tomato-fried chicken from Takayama!
AmoriLinguae: I'm not sure it's healthy
PhoenixMelior: eat protein and fats! Eat less carbs! It's filling and has more nutrients (usually)!
hoktauri: coffee and peanut butter, bold diet plan
richard_ermen: @wicker_knight I think It´s more that you need a good director to really unlock good actors, because otherwise even good actors just chew scenery ;)
TheMerricat: You do get satiated faster.
wicker_knight: Just remember, sugar is a drug
MaladyDark: i lost more wieght eating sausage and egg for breakfast that porrige.

ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: this is why Lost, despite everyone ragging on the last season, was an incredible & genre-defining show despite all of JJ Abrams' other shows being cool but forgettable. Abrams had Damon Lindelof & Carlton Cuse to tell him no and pick up the ball when Abrams ran off after the latest shiny thing.

GapFiller: keep meaning to give vegan keto a go
AquariumPrime: A spoonful of Marmite keeps that Medicine stright down.
TheMerricat: party100
GapFiller: seems like a tough row to hoe though
r10pez10: i like vegemite but it is totally not designed to be eaten by the spoonful
MolaMolaphant: hmm, do people often castor you as a villain?
Simonark: The problem with Keto is that.. for diabetics there are a lot of REALLY sleazy people trying to sell keto as a cure...
AmoriLinguae: Paul will need to find a nice emote to use for the line
Simonark: And they kinda make up their own facts to sell this.
AquariumPrime: Zalbaag benginDab

AquariumPrime: Feels bad cause everyone keeps gifting me subs and I am just like, "What do I do now"
PharaohBender27: @Nahmbra Maybe another Twitch hiccup after the "changes"?
Fayili: Sorry Beej :P
GapFiller: yeh my sub today is nothing of the sort

Wynterburne: i like it @ThatWhichNeverWas
wicker_knight: @ThatWhichNeverWas As someone whose name is based on a horror trope, it is :P
AquariumPrime: Because its a very Animous name
DirtCadaver: its sorta lends itself to drama
Skudd: That Which Never Was sounds like an Eldrazi name
Fayili: (My sub message said "I am now (legally) married and it's your fault.")

DirtCadaver: its very lovecraftian
Taveena: "Hey, can you go down to the store and get That Which Never Was"
AquariumPrime: OH MY
Plasterboard: That's _exactly_ what a creepily named twitch handle would say @ThatWhichNeverWas :P
PhoenixMelior: ah, I miss Derek and Edith.
r10pez10: it's an awesome name though
AquariumPrime: Its the next QWER line
ROU_FrankExchangeOfViews: When your Twitch handle could be a name for an elder god, you gotta expect some creepy intonations.

TehAmelie: did you know the climate shift might be caused by the solar system moving into a warmer region of space so to be on the safe side we should do nothing to clean up our air?
AmoriLinguae: o.O
TehAmelie: i heard it from a guy on twitter with eight numbers in his name so it's probably a real science thing.
AmoriLinguae: The lengths people will go to
AmoriLinguae: like when I was part of a community that wasn't too up on science, I was all "maybe we should change just in case"
