I post at here at night (while at work, though I did squeeze one off tonight while gettibg ready to work) or my days off... On my normal post work mornings I have about an hour to an hour and a half to game... and that's what I want to do. Game. Not troubleshoot my PC cause I wanted to get five more FPS.

What does you jacking off before work have to do with anything?

When I was in college, I was friends/classmates with this one woman who had 3 other female roommates. They each had a word that they hated the sound of; hers was moist. What makes this stick out to me, is that the four words of these ladies made a phrase of sorts: moist, supple, c*nt, flesh. Could come up with appropriate reasons to use three of the words (supple leather, moist cake, flesh tones) but none of us guys said jack about the fourth.

Apropos of nothing.


Feckless c*nt?

I'll see myself out.

Does anyone else find the word "moist" unsettling?  There is just something gross about it but I can put my finger on it.

I've seen or heard this comment/discussion about "moist" around a dozen times in my life.  It started in college.  I think it's something people hear someone else say, latch onto, and then parrot it without realizing it.  It's prevalent in women.  It makes them think of vaginas.  I really don't understand the fascination with the discourse other than people who rant about that word seem to think it's an original discussion, even though they picked up on it from somewhere else. 

 

But I learned a long time ago that there were two words that women really don't like.  They don't like "moist" and they don't like when people (frequently) use "extremely" in conversation.   Because that one sounds nerdy.  Also bc of the creepy faces and intonation people have when using these two words.

A character in Dead Like Me disliking "moist" was an occasional plot point.  I'm not sure if that was the genesis of this or was reacting to an already-existing thing, but that was fifteen years ago.

What has been will be again,
    what has been done will be done again;
    there is nothing new under the sun.
Is there anything of which one can say,
    “Look! This is something new”?
It was here already, long ago;
    it was here before our time.

Obviously from somewhere, and even if not that's long after it featured in Dead Like Me.  I wonder if there's any sort of documentation of aversion to "moist" from the 90s or earlier.  I doubt Dead Like Me started this, but I'm going to guess it was incorporating what was a relatively new phenomenon at the time.  (And a phenomenon that existed at a relatively low level until suddenly being much more discussed in the last year or so.)

 

I suspect, much like "mullet" and "sweet summer child" this is newer than most would expect.

Every frame matters.

 

Especially true if you are at 60fps and do have some drops, every now and then. Best to not have those drops, if you don't have G-Sync - b/c you'll likely still notice drops; even if you get slapped to say 50fps. You will likely still feel & see the hit, slow-down, see the game stutter for a moment, or something.

 

G-Sync and high refresh rates are a game-changer. Nice to have no graphical tearing too. Nothing like running a game at 120 frames with 120hz monitor, taking what (otherwise) would be a nasty hit b/c you lost 30fps or so, winding up at 90fps from the hit, feels like no hit occurred b/c everything's so smooth w/ these crazy framerates over 60fps, and the game bounces back to 120fps like nothing occurred. Smooth.

 

 

I never notice frame rate drops unless I'm hitting sub-30 slide shows in which case I have bigger problems going on.  Hell, I barely notice frame rates above 30-40 and mainly use my FPS counter as an indicator of general "How well is this running the game?" and not "Oh my God, need three more frames".  I don't think I've never noticed screen tearing, which I understand is a thing but not a thing that I'm afflicted with or notice if I am.  I just watched a couple videos so I understand what it is but I never notice it affecting me.

 

I'm not denying that anyone else notices these things but apparently I have old man eyes or something and they go right past me.  Which is nice since I can play on my comfortably sized 27" screen without lamenting not having dropped $500 on a comparably sized G-Sync monitor.

I'm done complaining about framerate after playing Dead By Daylight at 10-15 FPS on lowest settings for a few days (intel HD graphics cuz my gpu fried). It was literally a slideshow at times and sometimes dipped below 10 FPS. I might have developed motion sickness after forcing myself to deal with that shit! After dealing with that, 30 FPS and above will probably never bother me again

I had the "lol moist" conversation with a friend in the mid 90s.  I remember because he was staying at my house while traveling soon after college.  We also mocked the band Moist because they deserved it.  I think that was actually reversed where mocking Moist was the catalyst which turned into "What a stupid word... moist... moist... moooooooyyyyst".  Don't ask me why I remember the conversation but I do.  I spent three years learning French and can't conjugate être today but I remember the "moist" conversation I had for twenty minutes.

 

Although, if the word does evoke some legitimately visceral reaction in people then it stands to reason that it will get spontaneously brought up sometimes even if you weren't indoctrinated by some other prior conversation.

the craziest example of this for me is the high five, it wasn't a thing until the late 70s I think, but once you know that you definitely notice its absence in older media

The conversation I described earlier took place in the Summer of 1998. We were working as nerd camp counselors for high school students interested in Aerospace Engineering. I graduated in '99. Cant provide any documents though to the conversation.

I remember Barnabas telling Zacharias and Josiah how he felt the word "moist" was disturbing as it reminded him of carnal knowledge of women back in Deuteronomy 16.  Those were the times.

And was it new then, or was it echos of an earlier start?  It's not quite as easy as trying to pin down the genesis of a word or phrase.

I have no idea if it was "new" or not. I'm, frankly, un-interested in the genesis. You asked about it talked about in the 90's or earlier. I gave an example from the 90's. C'est tout!

The Spiral Scouts launched today at a 10% discount ($8.99):

 

https://store.steamp..._Spiral_Scouts/

 

This is the new game made by the creator of Huniepop as well as a friend of his (hence why they released it as a new company called Cantaloupe Kids instead of Huniepot).  I've only played a few hours of it so far, but it's a fun little puzzle adventure game with plenty of raunchy humor.  And the soundtrack is done by the original Huniepop composer Jonathan Wandag.

The history of word usage is neat.  You might not find it interesting, but thanks for an example placing it back into at least the 90s.

But I change cases like people change clothes but this is the lastest (and hopefully last) and greatest case. Oh yeah red is my favorite color. Just added some new case feet (thanks SSP on the chrome color choice) and power button.

If Anthem doesn't sell incredibly well then EA is just going to shutter the studio anyways.  That's what EA does.  They acquire studios and then shutter them when they can't perform well under publisher pressure and shareholder interests. 

 

Anthem is their one last hope.  It's their dying breath after the disaster that was ME: Andromeda.  Regardless though, the Bioware that exists today is not the same company you know and love from the past.  It's just a shell of its former self.  All the (D&D, rpg creation) talent has left and moved on. 

 

Weird how acquisitions don't work simply because you buy expensive things.

I saw a comment somewhere that the Steam API changed something that breaks IM's ability to connect.

 

Hopefully the issue resolves itself or someone doing one of the IM forks can fix it. Otherwise, RIP rapid cycling glitch.
