Science Penguin [x]

i enjoy that every single human’s reaction to penguin is unrestrained delight

And penguins lack large terrestrial predators, so their reaction to humans tends to be, “HELLO STRANGE GIANT PENGUINS, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? DO YOU HAVE ANY FISH?”

SO HAPPY TO SEE SCIENCE PENGUIN ON MY DASH.

Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.


To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:
Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?
Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255. On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.
And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!

“On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.”I about pissed myself laughing at this.

Ahahahahahaha - the post came back to me. This is so fucking hilairious. I just think about how funny it is sometimes. Reblogging to keep this information of pure beauty circulating FOREVER.


I’ve only started playing Civ quite recently so I really enjoyed this.

"Coincidentally, my first lesson will be the same as all my other lessons. Now, repeat after me: Qui fugiebat rursus fugiet - or, in modern terms: He who fights and runs away, lives to flee another day.”

Wow, now I feel super-excited about the idea of a Discworld/Harry Potter crossover fanfic where Rincewind teaches the ill-fated DADA class. Heck, he’s so used to winding up in impossibly difficult situations and somehow surviving, he might actually become the first person to survive long enough to teach the class two years in a row (if it weren’t for the fact that he’d probably have fled Hogwarts long before then).

The other school staff might also have something to say about his insistence on referring to his new place of employment as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizzardry. (Possibly even Wizzzardry.)

it’s not rude to interrupt someone to point out a dog

It’s actually more polite because then they don’t miss out on a dog

On our hike this morning it occurred to me that Chalo has never experienced autumn before. I wonder if he thinks it smells different. But probably he just thinks, “AM DOG.”
