  1. I played through Final Fantasy Tactics, I think I made the game much harder for myself because I neglected the thief class because it felt unclean. My main memory of it is characters returning from exciting-sounding side-adventures to the dull grind of the main quest and endless leveling at Sweggy Woods, always reporting on having a good feeling. =P
  2. Hey, I wanted to plug a few video games for either touching on philosophical concepts or being thought-provoking. Deus Ex: Human Revolutions, Focus on the side-quests, does a fairly good job of illustrating social issues raised by the rise of transhumanism. The more recent "Mankind Divided" falls a bit short in my opinion but I'd tend to say is worth it. In terms of gameplay, it is possible to complete Human Revolutions without killing anyone except a handful of boss characters. Mankind Divided can be completed without killing anyone at all. The Talos Principle, a puzzle game, lots of ponderables both on and off the main line of the game.
  3. Ideal solution: Cop goes in and arrests the N. Korean regime for human rights violations... Since they had a dictator, we replace them with listeners... We send a guy to each town and pay him to sit behind a desk and listen to the people all day. He will not have any task or authority other than to sit behind the desk and listen. Whenever he hears something that he can help with, he'll try to give good advice, making it clear it's only a suggestion, maybe it would be in the form of a business plan or maybe he would pass the requests on to outside relief agencies, or relaying messages to neighboring governments. However, I feel it is important that outside agendas are excluded from the process and that things are driven by the N.Korean people themselves as much as possible.
  4. I'm concerned that the apparent N.Korean provocations might be fabricated. I am concerned about the deep state in the USA and would like to hear what independent sources have to say about the subject. Are the alleged statements by N.Korea real? What hype adjustment should I apply when evaluating the state of affairs over there. I know that the N.Korean regime is inherently unstable and will collapse over the next few years, that can't not happen... The question being the appropriate policy response by the USA, and the problems within the US government, mainly the internal conflict between our elected leaders and the "deep state" that might hinder the administration's ability to implement those appropriate policy responses.
  5. Yep, I thought I was being really smart getting a computer science degree... I was even foolish enough to think it would give me a solid career that I could flip over into money for hobbies and business ventures... I've been unemployed for five years and have no prospects because I've been unemployed for five years... I went kinda crazy and spent my life savings upgrading my computer, which still retains the same ISA (instruction set architecture) of the first AMD64 processors released back in 2003, which is based on processor fundamentals which can be found in Babbage's designs from the 1840s, based on binary math from the 1640's based on mathematical concepts dating back to the beginnings of western civilization... Yet, after only five years I'm somehow obsolete and should be melted down and re-minted as a fresh new person who had damn well better keep his job or else become unemployable after six months. Every word ever published about the need for STEM graduates is a lie told to establish the groundwork for bringing in foreign workers. I don't even think there is a logical reason for this. The same companies that lobby for more onerous employment laws for American workers are the ones lobbying for more H1B visas. They have no concept of consequences and their forward-looking time horizon is the end of the next fiscal quarter. Either that or they're operating based on a malice deeper than I can contemplate.
  6. Here's my hello post, 39, unemployed 5 years, told my baccelor's degree is worthless by people who've never written a line of code in their lives because I've been unemployed 5 years... Also virgin, never been on a date. The main focus on my being here will be on trying to promote a dialogue on how society can welcome people such as myself back into the human race. I know it is a difficult problem and I don't have any solutions, but it is important that people face this problem and recognize that it exists and that many many people are having a really tough time at this and that first and foremost we must stop this BS about there not being any talent in the USA and that we must have more H1B assholes from India when they already, to the best of my knowledge, occupy more than 1/3rd of all IT jobs in the USA and have basically anihilated any chance that someone such as myself could secure even an entry level position.
