It's probably working out for the people getting paid to meme. It's hard to tell the signal from the noise over here, but to me it appears as if Buttigieg has been picked as the moderate option.

I've been meaning to read something by the Strugatsky brothers after the people behind Disco Elysium named them as one of their inspirations, but didn't know where to start. Should have known Hubski had the answer!

Back in the original Xbox days he went by lantus and ported the first SNES and N64 emulators to it.

I love MVG! If you haven't you should check out his podcast MVP, especially the episode where he talks to his friend from the Xbox warez scene.

Yes, $3k is insane, but as someone who has had to give their mother an adrenaline shot twice, and seen her get airlifted by helicopter off an island in the middle of nowhere once, you've given your daughter one of the most under-rated gifts for life. Even when dining out without mom, I still feel anxious for the first five minutes after food arrives. Fuck capitalism, but the world is what it is, and your daughter's heart is made of gold and gives me hope for the future.

Idealist answer: socially available free time.
