An American prospectus on Ukraine (7 comments)

Ok so here's what America can to do about the situation in the Ukraine. First and foremost we need to call up Finland, WW2's greatest defenders and people who have an axe to grind against Russia for the land ceded as a result of the invasion. GET THESE GUYS on our team. Maybe tell the youn

A Solution for Quake (44 comments)

ESR is the main problem with Quake. It's ancient, it never receives major updates or changes, most of its users are European, it is insular and isolated, its community is poor at business, it increasingly becomes totalitarian, it suffers from delusions of perfection, and its administrators ban

El Chapo, Hero of Mexico (6 comments)

Notorious gangster 'El Chapo' was recently arrested in Mexico. He ran the largest of the drug-cartels. But the real story here is not about how he's such a villain and government is such a hero. After decades of massive failure, do people still not understand how the 'war on d

There are a number of cost-effective solutions to the problem of carbon-emissions. Here are two, which could be done in a short time-frame: 1. Switch to electric vehicles. With the battery-switching system developed by Tesla Motors, infrastructure could be quickly and inexpensively built to en

Using a 15 year-old game is like using a 15 year-old computer. The kind of shit we used back then was Windows 98, Pentium 450's, and Geforce 2's. Can you imagine that computer trying to compete with today's computers? Well that's what we're doing with QL. It's like hpb&

The Evolution of Criminals (7 comments)

As evolution is the process of adapting living organisms to their environments, what changes could be realistically expected as the result of a prison environment? Shouldn't the purpose of prison be to change criminals into suitable members of society? If so, then prison is doing the exact oppo

In the United States, there are neighborhoods which are basically third-world countries. In those neighborhoods, the people receive what is essentially a third-world education. In viewing the U.S. as a microcosm of the entire world, it would be perfectly doable to provide the poor with a higher qual

A Guide to Killing Religion (22 comments)

Everyone hates religion, but most people do not know how to destroy it. I've come up with a simple guide anyone can use to starve the beast. Step 1: Never talk about religion. Any publicity is good publicity, and therefore, anything said about religion - good or bad - is good for religio

Aside from QL being essentially a 15 year-old game, there are other issues with Quake itself. Most of these issues are the result of the 'reality-tv' revolution of the late 90's and early 00's. To Quake players, strafe-jumping is a skill element and it makes the game faster. T

In this year of 2014, the Quake community is still wasting its free time sitting in queues. It's no wonder people don't play the game... they can't - they're sitting in a fucking queue. Maybe it's a reality shock to some of you, but most people don't have the free ti

Everyone knows that Q3 is 15 years old. Most of the people who play moba's were probably not even born when Q3 was released. Maybe those people enjoy slow games that require no skill whatsoever, or maybe they just don't want to play a game that's older than themselves... whatever the

One could objectively say that game A is better than game B, and that might be accurate. The problem is, it doesn't matter, because things need to be designed not just to be good or legitimate, but rather, to match the level of douchebaggyness in the current world. Anyone would say that ches
