I'm unusually butthurt about the issue due to the family tradition of exporting plastic bags to the third world grandparents.
avatar
Ah, my family and I never buy plastic bags because we're so damn cheap, so I somehow equated the 5 cent bag thing with the plastic straw ban.
avatar
It's a tax in california too, I have no idea what he's on about. I get plastic bags all the time.
avatar
I still pay it most of the time rather than use a reusable bag, since they are so useful to have around the house
avatar
We don't have a bag ban in NY, but we have a 5 cent tax per bag
avatar
Eh, first Santa Barbara, then it'll spread to the rest of California. It wouldn't surprise me, after all, the plastic bag ban was first implemented in a county before it was implemented statewide
avatar
People were hyping it up as california and i got confused. It's just santa barbara like you said which makes me even more confused. That beach is fucking filthy and they never clean it. A genuine shithole of a shore and their solution is to blame straws.
avatar
It's because plastic straws are obliterating the environment. Every time you use one, a rare species goes extinct.
avatar
What
avatar
>six months jail time if a server gives a straw to someone who doesn't ask for it...
avatar
You can also get a $1000 fine for it
avatar
Huh, apparently, the Teen Titans Go movie teased the return of the original Teen Titans. That's one way to get ticket sales I suppose.
avatar
Minor correction, they only give six months jail time if a server gives a straw to someone who doesn't ask for it...
avatar
Bah, I was mad when California banned plastic bags, but at this rate, the whole state will probably ban straws. Santa Barbara recently did that.

Goddamit I keep forgetting to exclude the thread read icons

Oh boy, time to see what broke with this latest update
avatar
At least they didn't call it Phantasy Star 5, like some other company who revived a beloved franchise with mobileshit...
avatar
Moba versions are the only way to milk dead franchises though

Sega confirmed dead to me forever

Invisible doesn't seem to be the same thing

I've been using this chat for weeks.
avatar
apparently if you go into "invisible mode" before quitting steam, it'll keep the settings for next time
avatar
I just hate how you can't start offline now, wtf

seems fine to me

the new steam UI fucking sucks

avatar
It's delightful to see people tell her the original will always exist and she's a racist misogynist for leveling criticism at the remake.
avatar
Huh, apparently SJWs are mad over the Buffy the Vampire Slayer remake? I personally don't care about Buffy since I've never seen it, but it's nice to see people like Anita squirm.

The left generally supports pedophiles anyway, so Gunn can go fuck himself.
avatar
Yeah, I don't think he should've been fired or anything. Not without proof of any actual wrongdoing. The people who treat this as some kind of victory over the libs are only proving they can be just as authoritarian when given the chance. The staggering hypocrisy from those that would normally be leading these outrage mobs is still amusing, though.
avatar
Pretty much. I'm personally of the opinion that even if Gunn said was kind of creepy, it was said a shit long time ago.
avatar
Everyone knows this goblin and his ilk would mercilessly come after Gunn if they *didn't* happen to agree with his politics.
avatar
avatar
I can't help but stand in awe of that fucking "the alt-right have weaponized the left's morality!" bullet point by Patrick Klepek. Literally "getting someone fired over tweets is only okay when we do it!" and it got over *17,000* likes.
avatar
Technically speaking, it's not even a reference to Gamergate. August 28th is the day the "Gamers are dead" articles came out, not the date #Gamergate got coined. It's a reference to the day games journalism shot itself in the foot by insulting its audience.
avatar
Wait, so the thing that's associated with GamerGate is a tombstone of "game journalism", but GamerGate still isn't about ethics in game journalism? Do people even listen to themselves?
avatar
I remember one had a really good episode where they touched upon the clone troopers and their conflict of basically being made only to kill but wanting to be human. Basically a better Episode 7.
avatar
Wait, which one? The good one that Tartakovsky did or the shit 3D-animated one that's only good for the Ahsoka porn?
avatar
Damn, Disney must be desperate if they are resurrecting the old Clone Wars series.
avatar
Yup, then they deleted it, apologized, and called GG an "abusive movement"
avatar
Wait, this was it? How fucking embarassing. https://archive.fo/YxjGg
avatar
What did they say?
avatar
They also deleted it like cowards
avatar
Haha, GoG tweeted something that could be construed as being pro-GamerGate and game journalists are losing their shit.
avatar
>She-ra netflix cartoon I don't really care but damn we're getting to the bottom of the nostalgia barrel.
avatar
The only way it could've still built is if "AttachXenoToTeather" was also a function that they left in for some reason. Which wouldn't surprise me given how stupid they are.
avatar
Typo basically disabled the AI (90% of its functionality hinged on the broken line), Randy Pitchford will still pretend Gearbox did nothing wrong and the game was secretly a masterpiece.
avatar
Mod fixes Colonial Marines Xeno AI by spellchecking. The game's still shitty as fuck but the AI is better, now. Allegedly.
avatar
I don't know any specifics, but gay adoptation is legal in various parts of the US. Republicans basically made it so that adoption houses can reject a gay couple on the basis of being gay.
avatar
Have they ever been allowed to adopt? I'm pretty sure the dems were doing it too.
avatar
Good. Now they need to repeal Gay Marriage and ban it again.
avatar
Kek, faggots are mad that Republicans won't let them adopt.
avatar
Yeah, people need to calm down. Not a fan of the guy myself, but I just learn to ignore it.
avatar
His art sucks, but at least he is an unapologetic supporter of free expression
avatar
Funny enough I've only been interested in that "Ruby's Workout" series that Shad hosts, but is done by the JLullaby guy. Any ways people shitting themselves over his existence this time are all kinds of loonie. Emailing Disney cause of the Incredibles content, talking about getting some writer for Rick and Morty fired cause he follows Shadman on twitter, and DMing people they follow asking "why do you support and enable a pedophile like Shad?"
avatar
indifferent
avatar
I still don't get why people like Shadman. I don't really care for his art style.
avatar
It's that time of the year again where a bunch of people just discover Shadman and go on a Twitter hunt to get him arrested.
avatar
I'd honestly rather have a Jar Jar movie filled with racist alien stereotypes than whatever the fuck they're making now. At least I can laugh at it.
avatar
Oh, and apparently, if a woman does a kamikaze attack, it's out of love of her allies. if a man does it, it's out of hatred of the enemy.
avatar
One thing that was funny about her is that she freed the alave animals, but just left thw slave children in captivity.
avatar
Yeah, Rose is a new character. To sum up her character arc: she does absolutely nothing of note the entire movie until the last 15 minutes, where she actively fucks over the entire Resistance movement by preventing Finn's noble sacrifice, which would have been the one useful thing he did the entire movie and would actually have been a very fitting and poignant end to his arc.
avatar
That someone from the new movies? I haven't even bothered to watch any of that shit
avatar
Still better than Rose.
avatar
They'll make Jar Jar the star of the next movie
