We are huge fans of perfectly timed photos that capture perfect (and usually funny or unexpected) moments that come and go with a blink of the eye.

That pretty much sums it up. God. Fucking. Dammit. I keep lying to myself thinking I’ve got it all figured out, but I couldn’t be any further away from an answer than I am now. So tired of this feeling. I fought to keep from feeling this for 5 fucking years, and then it all comes crashing down in an instant. I don’t even know how to comprehend what I’m feeling because it’s such a foreign concept to me. I’ve been so devoid of the most basic of human emotions for the past 5 years that I don’t even know what to do anymore.
So, here I am at 2 o’clock in the morning, 7 hours before I have to be at work, trying to keep these thoughts from racing through my head so I can get some sleep. Oh well.

I got bored at work.
Thank you. My life is complete
IT’S COMPLETELY IN SYNC
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.
