I’m getting pretty tired of celebrities standing up with big signs saying “we love you” and “don’t leave”.

If you want to convince any Scottish person to vote EITHER way, at least have the respect to talk about the reasoning behind it.

I’m sorry that you love us, Miscellaneous Celebrities, but I am somewhat more interested in being run by a proprtionally represented government.

I should really clarify, Scotland has the additional member system. It isn’t AV. Nor is it actual Proportional Representation. It is however much more proportional than the Westminster first past the post system, that’s what I meant.

I am horrified by the number of countries that will lock you up for four years if you burn that countries flag. Even if done in protest. Check it out, there’s a ton of them.

Kind of interestingly, in some countries like Denmark and Japan, it’s only illegal to deface the flags of foreign countries. I still don’t really agree with that, but it’s kind of a polite way to be, while at least allowing your own people to speak against their own country.

#Flags #I guess?

I think literally EVERY time I’ve heard the phrase, “you’re reading too much into it” - whether directed at me or otherwise - it’s been said by someone who hasn’t given it even a moments thought.

So clearly I guess the appropriate amount to read into things is zero.

» False Punishment

guilelessmonk:

When you do something bad in a game (either executing an action poorly or doing something the game doesn’t want you to do) it punishes you. It can take away money or items from the player, inconvenience them, or just force them to redo what they just did. Typically the punishment is proportional to how bad the player screwed up, they don’t dodge a fast moving attack and they lose a couple bars of health but if they get hit over and over again they have to start the level over.

Punishment is supposed to encourage the player to not do something. How well they learn that lesson depends on how clear the game is about why they are being punished and what they can do to not be punished in the future, but the point is to stop the player from doing a thing either because it is not how you progress or because allowing the action is unhealthy for the game. Now, there are also false punishments, things framed as a punishments that aren’t actually a punishment.image

Why would you want to do that though, frame what is ostensibly a reward as a punishment?

Well, the best false punishment ever is the cops in the GTA series. When you commit a crime in the game you get a wanted level and the cops chase you, this is framed as a bad thing, as a punishment. Yet, being chased by the cops is one of the most fun things in GTA. It leads to amazing, emergent and unplanned game play that steadily escalates. The game frames it as a punishment because that is how the mechanic fits into the world but the cops and the wanted level the player can accrue is in no way designed to get players to follow the laws in the GTA universe. When you commit a crime in GTA the game responds not by punishing you but by starting great big game of tag.
