The amount of "do this or get out" in those comments are unreal.

This paragraph, in particular, just illustrates how uncaring people can be:

"I hear you when you say you are unhappy with the way things are going in America. But the answer to what’s wrong in America is America — the aspirations passed down generation after generation and sung in unison week by week."

Which bred this tweet, which sums it up:

Game sins - Everything wrong with Life is Strange

If you don't care about the spoilers you can do the whole thing, but the sin at the 35:00 mark is what I'm sending you there for

No hugging technique is ever premeditated. What is up with that?

The thirst was real for him. The lean-in and crotch pressing is what kills me about it...and the eye close and sigh. If you go to 8:10, you see why that sin is so sinly

Oh, typical for people to try to set the rules of engagement for two consenting huggers.

He was definitely going for the "I want to practice making babies with you" hug and she is just not that into him. But neither of them are fully picking up the signals the other is dropping. That's where it gets so damned awkward

Yup. That's life, one big game of trial and error.

>Acts of Gord< is a collection of stories from the owner of a Video game shop from the early 2000s, including tales of all the dumb customers they had to deal with. For some reason, I find myself re-reading the archives once a year, and thought I would share here.

I'm not being facetious or mocking with this, and not really making a commentary about it, I really am not. I just am spellbound by this rant. It's remarkable, really...and then, when it's over, he very affably and excitedly goes into pimping his app. Amazing

That guy is what Stephen Colbert meant when he coined the term "truthiness".

Back in the day, it was fun to laugh at Alex Jones but in this day and age, him and his cronies and beginning to be taken more and more seriously which is frightening (and presumably why Media Matters keeps files on him). That's the thing about these people, they want attention by being insincere and inflammatory to promote their brand. It's better to avoid giving them the oxygen. I hope for his sake that he's not that level of crazy but just knowingly a con man because the shit he peddled after Sandy Hook was really crossing a line, those were kids that died man and to lie about them like that is sick. As entertaining as he might appear to be on the surface, there's a real ugliness behind it all.

Yeah, I walked into that not really knowing who he is so I divorced the rhetoric and just watched the form of the rant. Like, I thought he was going to go full-Sideshow Bob changing colors and then he just deflated and went on about his shilling. It blew me away, in the form of it

Yeah, he's a crazy person. I'm kind of amazed you found that much to read into it.
