like we were saying none will complain about the posting of pictures/ meme style pictures anywhere it is relevant unless you get into a serious discussion such that points and counterpoints are the style.

In point/counterpoint style discussions memes and basically any picture that is not showing something specific and relevant will likely be deleted with no other action being taken except for a post deleted comment.

ugh.

Memes arent germs; theyre social normatives used to convey an idea in such a manner as to be aesthetically pleasing and thematically out of context enough so as to apply to a wide variety of situations.

They are the pinnacle of propaganda.
The highest lowest denominator.
The zenith of mob mentality.

the issues with them is that people are copycats, and overuse of memes restricts one's mental acuity.  You lose the capacity to think freely, out of the box, and concisely.

Thanks. Thats a much better summation of memes than I could come up with off the top of my head.

Memes are fine, discussion is good, memes in discussion is cancer.

What exactly constitutes a meme? Is it okay to just put something that I found funny?


for simplicity sake a meme is anything meant to convey an idea. In this context, a picture worth its weight in words.

The idea is that in a discussion words are specific, and convey exactly what you are trying to get across in an intelligible manor, if you are any good at communicating.

Memes are vague, use few or no words and even then often bastardized so as to make them serve the purpose of the meme better than specifics. Which of coarse it to spread an idea as throughly as possible. Not a specific concept but a vague idea that can be different from person to person but maintain the overall whole of a shared idea among those aware of it.

Memes used in a serious discussion discredit the topic, playing it off as something to be poked fun of, and laughed about rather than being given critical thought. Simultaneously memes in a discussion create chaff in a straight conversation. Words can't chase down all the things wrong with a vague purpose picture as a counter argument.

TL;DR: Discussions are intricate ballets of argument and counterargument.
While Memes are ideas so vague they just blanket everything.
Both serve their own purpose but should not be used together.

memes are thought germs:

Well, my take on dodging that I'm unashamedly ripping from the GURPS handbook is that a zombie or other 'dumb' creature isn't intentionally moving out of the way of your shots as much as simply moving unpredictably.

The swaying, lurching gait of a zombie is bound to make you whiff shots, the same with a charging animal or any other beast. An unpredictably moving target is hard to hit, sometimes even if it's charging straight at you.

It should still amount to less than a creature ACTIVELY trying to dodge. So Mi-gos and other intelligent creatures would get a dodge bonus for agility and intelligence (in lore and theory if not practice) I think Kevin already said something along these lines are what he planned to do.

It seems so odd that Australia would be the one to get so PC about that kind of stuff. I mean everything else they do boils down to Fuck you world were Australia we can do what we want and your not changing us, but your welcome to visit. Just be prepared to die, because Outback. And the rest of our wonderfull country too. Basically everything just wants to kill you.

Isn't it GREAT!!!!?!!?!

How about we correlate a weapons volume with its maneuverablity and its minimum range before hip firing tied to sights (Ditto for bonuses at extended range.)

...

Oh yeah, I meant to include this, though I guess it would probably be a redundant suggestion. Can't be the first time this has been suggested.

The rest of it is inspired though. Love it. Not sure how adjacent de-penalty should balance out with penalty and decreased aim time for range. Should be interesting to see this come together.

PC: This, Kongregate stuff, Streets of rogue (thanks for that guys), need to order a controller so my Bro can play WITH me, oh the lovely chaos that will ensue.

Mobile: Cartoon Wars 3 (has that obnoxious power creep problem but otherwise a decent wast of time), Age of Strategy (OH upgrades I want to waste time getting to!)

Xbox 360: the newer Tomb Raiders. The first one felt like a breath of fresh air, but the second one felt.... like too much of the same? Can't place it but it was sort of disappointing.

Battlefield 4, miss the TG community...... maybe since I'm less busy I can get back in with them now... last I heard my squad was adamant I get my position back as Squad leader when I return....

Anyone here interested in being recruited? Its a solid community that spans multiple platforms, games, and continents
Tactical Gaming
recruiter: Tetchyhyperion5

Please feel free to PM me any questions, or if you want teammate sometime.

hmm. Not seen that yet.

Lost one of my more recent playthroughs in the transition from OSX to Linux mint.

XD Well, back to trying to get a random survivor to survive long enough to experience some mid-late game content. Note to self: stop making stupid mistakes.
