Nobody in history has ever not mixed up John Maynard Keynes and Maynard James Keenan

do say "apropos" too much?

sci-fi should have more Gun With An Engine type ships, in the vein of the A-10 Warthog being essentially built around its 30mm cannon. the FTL Stealth Type B is a good example.


odds the liberals see the GOP so blatantly flaunting the fact that they don't give a shit about democracy, and centrist Dems like Manchin so *clearly* helping them while pretending to be "Bipartisan," and start to realize that those in power will never allow their power to be voted away?

probably pretty low, unfortunately

@binchicken lol yeah, I sometimes catch myself trying to tab-cycle through the units in FTL lmao

I like to think I'm pretty good at FTL; that run required some micromanaging for sure. backup battery for cheap finnicky power, two zoltans, 7 crewmembers, cloak. I even micro the oxygen power to up dodge chance a bit when the backup battery is off. that's dedication.

I bought a drone system in sector 7 with a combat mk 1 just to be able to get one more shot off to go all the way through shields more often lol, most inefficient single-shot weapon of all time. 100% built around good defense and a halberd beam lol.

Show thread

honestly wasn't even that strong a run, only truly good weapon I found was a halberd beam. I was still running the starting dual laser when I killed the boss!! scrap recovery arm certainly helped tho, I had max shields and near-max engines (with a backup battery), and cloak level 2 cuz it lines up better with the boss than 3 imo.

finally beat FTL with Stealth A on normal lol, and got two of the achievements at the same time! boy, I do *not* like that ship

the Swedish government also just basically collapsed like a flan in a cupboard after the leftmost party pulled out of the governing coalition over disputes about rent control. so maybe that's related, lol.

lol the Swedish government basically just rejected Valve from hosting TI10 in Stockholm out of nowhere, for no reason lmao.
