Whiskey Tango Foxtrot


The winner of this year's moronic programmers awards goes to Lucasarts for this error message.

I might be able to play the game because I only have half the RAM they reccomend, but I definitely won't be able to play it because my CPU is 0.7% too slow. However, I will definitely be able to hear the game because I have a video capture card installed.

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Over.



The winner of this week's Whiskey Tango Foxtrot award is Penny Arcade.

The Concidence Theorist's Guide to 9/11

Four more years of this shit

It's all very depressing. Just when you think that the majority of Americans are normal, rational, thinking people, they go and do something moronic like vote for George W. Bush.

After all, he's only bankrupted the country, destroyed the army, and vastly increased the exposure of the USA to terrorism by invading a country which had nothing to do with September 11. He's only presided over widespread violation of the Geneva Conventions, the handing over of 380,000 tons of high explosives to God-knows-who, the trampling of the US Constitution(see Guantanamo Bay) and alienated just about every ally that America has ever had.

He claims to be a born-again Christian, but he lives in some sort of Old Testament world with smiting and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Leviticans, I believe those sorts of hypocrites are called.

I fully expect to see the USA invade Iran before next summer. I expect to see the US army resorting to a draft of some sort by next year. Civil liberties will go further down the toilet and I'm more than half expecting to see the 22nd Amendment repealed, so that Georgie can be president for life.
