i never want to read about tech again

i like to ~laugh at the microcheating thing from a distance but also 4 real most concerns about partner fidelity come off as nearly as silly to me

i mean [audible begrudging] it's fine it's valid it's not for me

they all communicate the same thing but it's like every individual word needs its own individual cultural pushback (which ends up being proportional to popularity of usage i guess) before it becomes x-slur instead of xylophone

experimental take: all slurs against a given group are equally demeaning and "bad" unless they imply some specific thing. some are just more/less socially acceptable than others for some reason?

apogtheosis is when u become a god gamer

like um benzos are also "depressants" and have the exact same primary mechanism of action as alcohol (which is why they're used to mitigate alcohol withdrawal) and they're *specifically* prescribed for anxiety. maybe i do know enough to argue. maybe i will start doing that

what the games industry doesnt want you to know is that any game packaged as a game of the year edition is the same but can get you addicted to a certain kind of sadness

"i love this [thing] you did" or even "you're so good at [skill]" are fine good things to say but praising and putting down people for traits that are mostly thought of as intrinsic really bothers me. same vibe as people congratulating themselves on like, IQ test results and then doing jack shit (esp. for other people) with their supposed abilities

same vibe as so much divisive ingroup thinking. same vibe as so much empty ingratiation

shoutout to w3schools for the most absolutely fucked idea of how OOP works that i've ever seen

name = "John"
age = myAge

x = issubclass(myObj, myAge)
