It wasn't my point, it's kinda cute you thought it was, then re-negged on it by calling me smart (for which I thank you, I don't often receive many ego-points that I don't provide myself). My point is that it would be better spent on those two than another over hyped disappointment factory, or even a video game in general. Please spare me your pariah's cries of how it's your money and you're free to do whatever you want with it, I'm obviously aware of that. My problem is that people
are more interested in getting a shiny twenty minute distraction for the one time small payment of, what is it now? 35 million USD?, than investing into programs that will benefit us all as a species.
I would love to be proven wrong on this one, but as my erstwhile college Cyofee pointed out, the stereotype exists for a reason and that just makes me sad. It makes me wonder just how easy it would be to do something like this and just cut and run. Hell I wouldn't even need to do that, I could just deliver a terrible product and watch people fight over how it's still amazing and that other people don't understand (I wonder what franchise I could be talking about there, answers on the back of a postcard kids!)
I guess I forgot the fundamental truth, being interested in science (or insert whatever term you want here) doesn't nessicarily make you intelligent (which is a term I dislike using as I don't like the current definition and use of it). Now that's not meant to be a personal attack on any of you, more a reflection on how all this nonsense has become a lot more culturally acceptable and widespread since my youth, well not so much, more so how people have realised that there's a lovely demographic of gullible people who think being marketed towards makes them unique and special to exploit.
A lovely example of which is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ehhqcx8V4K0
, or rather what this satire is based upon. Or the whole "gaming fuel" bullshit from Mountain Dew, or a thousand other things. They're harbouring the idea that liking certain things makes you somehow special so they can sell you pieces of plastic and reformed corn. This fu
cking world we've allowed to be created for us, honestly..
Also Uri, if you gave me enough time and hyperbole, I could prove that your dick is responsible for the ecological event that resulted in the destruction of Egypt's Old Kingdom as well as most, if not all, of the near east civilisations of the time.
