but seriously if you picked the golden hairpin over a Moogle’s life than you’re an asshole.
More importantly you can only get one of Mog’s dances if you recruit him in WoB (unless you’re playing the GBA remake then I say go for the hairpin and recruit Mog later he’s not even that good and we know he’ll survive).
okay i am laughing because people really think shit only exists on the internet
You are aware that those are warnings related to the suitability (or lack thereof) of media for children, right?
Which implies that you think people susceptible to triggers are comparable to children. I’m gonna assume that it’s unintentional. Content warnings are meant to keep children from seeing things that may or may not have a negative effect on their impressionable child brains (veracity or lack thereof of such theories notwithstanding), not to prevent adults from getting upset.
Me:Wow, the election's already over and Alaska hasn't even been counted up yet.
Friend:Yeah, that's pretty cool.
Me:Well, Alaska's definitely going red, so, yeah, Mitt gets Alaska, you go Mitt.
Me:I can see it, Romney's on the plane, going home, and he sees the map update and smiles bitterly. "Fuck yeah, Mitt gets Alaska..." Ann walks up and says softly, "Yes, honey, Mitt gets Alaska." Then he just falls against Ann's chest and starts sobbing uncontrollably while his five robot sons watch emotionlessly. Just standing there. Staring.
I was tuning into the pundits to catch some election post mortem, and Chris Matthews of MSNBC’s Hardball comes on. First thing, he talks about last night. He’d been on the air for ten hours straight, went off at half past three. And not long before going, he said he was glad for Hurricane Sandy. That was fucked up. And you know what? He owned up to it. Not some half-assed apology, either, he didn’t make the easy excuse of being tired, no, he admitted that he’d gotten caught up in partisan politics and said something vile without thinking it through properly. He said that he shouldn’t have shot his mouth off like that, because it implies that ends justify means, which he doesn’t like one bit. He went on to recognize the amazing work done by everyone to recover from Sandy, coming together as people, and that that’s what he should have focused on. And you know how I could tell he was sincere? His first guest commended him on the apology, and his response was reiterating that he just shouldn’t have said it in the first place, underscoring his mistake. That is how pundits and politicians should act when they say stupid things without thinking. Four for you, Chris Matthews, you go Chris Matthews.
Okay, for those unable or unwilling to hit up HuffPo or any number of other news sites, the stock market dropped two percent today, which makes Obama’s reelection look pretty bad. However, it had been rising steadily all through election season despite Obama being the odds-on favorite to win, including a one percent jump yesterday morning, when his odds were at their highest.
According to all reliable sources and analysts, the dip came about when news broke that the ongoing recession in the EU was about to hit Germany, on top of continuing fears about Greece. So, there’s your counterpoint for all the idiots you see today spouting off about Obama fucking up the stock market.
Well… I’ve been campaigning for almost 12 hours now by posting a single Facebook status asking for write-ins, and it’s been a long struggle. A tough struggle. We fought for what we believed in and worked to be the best our nation has to offer. And despite receiving the overwhelming support of…
I… I have a confession for you, bro.
I didn’t vote for you. I’m sorry, man, I just don’t know if I can trust a guy who can be bribed with Nutella.
Looks like Romney’s about to speak. My guess he’s going to give his victory speech. The GOP has been lying, and standing behind those lies, all campaign. So, now they’re going to lie about who won, hoping that if they do it loudly enough and often enough, it will become true.
I’m excited that Obama won. I’m happy that the person I chose to support won.
Do not be a fucking dick to those that supported Romney. Do not get high and mighty and flip the bird to Romney Supporters. Have some tact and take the win gracefully. I know you’re relieved and happy, but don’t be a dick.
They wanted to deny people basic civil rights. They wanted to take control of women’s bodies. They cared more about the profits of the richest citizens than the basic needs of the poorest. And they lied to our faces every step of the way, even as those very lies were revealed for all to see. So, fuck that noise. I’ll be as much of a dick to Romney supporters as I feel like, because evil reaps what evil sows. Do not be mistaken, this was a race between good and evil. Perhaps not perfectly good or perfectly evil, but one side was most certainly more moral, and the fact that Obama did not have the support of every single American speaks to critical failings in the characters of those who thought Mittens was the right decision.
Fox News’ response is by far the best. They’re just pretending the election is still ongoing. I wonder if they’ll keep it up later this week. Maybe they’ll just give up on reality entirely and start reporting the news of a world in which Mitt Romney won the election. They’d finally be entertaining, at least.
Well shit. Looks like Barry won already. I was hoping for a weeks-long tantrum by the GOP while they demand recount after recount and give us months worth of entertainment. Ah, well, good game, all, it was an honor voting with you.
Obama’s still got a solid lead in Ohio and a narrow one in Florida, but Romney’s got a lead in Wisconsin, Virginia, and North Carolina, though Wisconsin could change any minute, as very few votes are in right now. Oh, and Romney’s won Arizona. Big surprise there.
Okay, so, a quick break from talking about the assholes on legs to comment on the ballot measures around the country. Looks like Maine and Maryland are ready to recognize same-sex marriage, while a ban on it in Minnesota looks poised to fail horribly. Good news all around. In other news, Massachusetts will not become a right-to-die state this year and everyone fuckin’ loves pot.
Remember how Linda McMahon, of Connecticut, was fucking with voters earlier today? She lost a couple hours ago to her Democratic opponent. The GOP is officially the Dick Dastardly of politics. They cheat their asses off and they still can’t win.
Looks like Mittens has a solid lead in Missouri. Makes sense, considering his religion says it will be one of the two places from which Christ will rule the world following the Second Coming. Yeah, because out of all possible locations, Jesus is going to want to hang out in fuckin’ Missouri. The ancient foe of the gamer community, Joe Lieberman, has finally been ousted, according to current results. For fans of HBO’s Veep, the new Independent senator from Maine is aiming for some filibuster reform. Looks like the GOP’s losing ground in the senate, but the analysts project them holding onto the house. Expect another two years of obstinate obstructionism if the prediction proves true. However, without reelection to worry about, Barry has more freedom to kick ass.
Oh, and Todd Akin’s just been announced as a huge fuckin’ loser. Fun fact: His victorious opponent ran ads in Akin’s favor during the primary ever since he made those moronic rape comments. I’m glad to see a couple Dems fighting back against the GOP’s shitty tactics with a few dirty tricks of their own.
I’m watching MSNBC’s election coverage, I think that officially counts as masturbation. I’d watch Fox News, but I don’t think my blood pressure could take it. CNN has failed to provide enough insipid, useless graphics and doo-dads to keep my attention between their pleas to friend them on Facebook, and Comedy Central’s coverage is interspersed with Tosh.0, which is a big bowl o’ NOPE.
That said, Comedy Central is where politics belong, these days…
Hey I’m gonna liveblog election coverage because why not. Everyone’s talking about Ohio and Florida and Barry’s got leads in both, that makes me smile. Here in AZ B-Rock’s got not chance, sadly, but it’s anyone’s game in the Carmona-Flake battle over John Kyl’s old spot. Kyl chose to pass on reelection, lest we rise up to slay him. He was about as popular as Sheriff Joe at a downtown Phoenix halfway house by the time he decided to quit while he was ahead (or rather, still had a head). The Barber/McSally race for Gabby Gifford’s old seat is tighter than the sphincter of a Mormon in Las Vegas, but I’m rooting for the bearded one. I scoped the pair of them on campus a couple weeks ago for a debate, pretty sure I saw McSally arrive on a broomstick. As for Barber, I half expected him to pull a platter of fresh-baked cookies from under his podium, he’s like Santa’s socially aware cousin. Shook his hand, looked him in the eye, and the man’s jib is completely satisfactory.
This halloween I taped a sign saying COMMUNISM in red on my chest and handed out one piece of candy for each kid and if they complain I say, “Well, look at that you just learned about Communism.” One dad already gave me a dirty look.
stop my mom made me take it off because one little girl demanded more candy and I said “whoa calm down, capitalism”
The parents would be the ones getting dirty looks I ever saw a little kid act so ungrateful as to “demand” anything on Halloween. Fucking entitled little shits. I took the candy I was given with a polite “thank you” and then moved on to the next house. I managed to fill a pillowcase and then some every year, regardless. This is almost as infuriating as kids that actually bitch about Christmas or birthday presents just because it’s not the one item they’ve been drooling over for months. Where the hell did everyone’s manners go?
