    Yes exactly, I'm glad someone else gets it!

    No I'm just not keen on abuses of power by an unelected leader of a country to bypass normal parliamentary procedure - leave or remain put entirely to one side. It reminds me of a time when a chancellor got extra powers, and made some sweet Autobahns, and then I forget the rest.

    Fortunately it looks like Benn's bill will pass as even Conservative MPs weren't happy to let such a gross abuse to stand - putting their political careers at risk to avoid us crashing out on terms that an elected parliament have no say in. The Leave campaign under Boris assured the UK that a deal would be possible because we were too big of a player for Europe to not allow it, I'd say very few people were voting for the massive recession that no deal would bring.

    As surprising as it may seem, I don't have an axe to grind about the vote itself. I also do greatly enjoy explaining that I'm not just a butthurt lefty whiner just because I'm not a fan of the dictatorial-leaning hard-right fuckheads that seem to be in charge of so many of the world's governments right now, obviously.

    Centrist politics man, where are they these days? Good morning.

    Leberkäse (noun, German, literally "liver cheese") - a traditional Bavarian meatloaf that contains neither liver nor cheese.

    Good morning.

    Leberkäse.

    Käseleberkäse = leberkäse with pieces of cheese.

    Good morning.

    Well, I'm a butthurt lefty whiner and I greatly enjoy explaining that I shouldn't have to be.

    As for centrism...

    I just found out that the word "veterinarian" is spelled "veterinarian". Like, there's been an extra syllable hiding in there this whole time.

    Good moroning.

    I had never heard the story about Diogenes and the chicken before.

    I've been in a state of elation all day.

    BEHOLD! A MAN!

    Good evening.

    Picked up Greedfall because the woke journalism that is Kotaku US complained about colonialism. Thoroughly enjoyed my purchase. Check it out on PC and consoles.

    Read the article because Zanza mocked it. I'd say it was a fairly nuanced review drawing interesting comparisons to Tyranny, New Vegas and Dragon Age 2. The game itself also seemed rather interesting.

    Attempting to use 'woke' in a derogative manner only makes you look tired.

    Good morning.

    I read Ruda's post because Zanza mocked it. I'd say it was a balanced assessment of the review, but attempting to imply that "woke" has any genuine merit only makes it look like you're showing your privilege.

    Good morning.

    While 'woke' may very well have been appropriated by insecure white people (read: me) who are trying to demonstrate awareness, I'd argue that disregarding any and all critical analysis of historical baggage, and being generally scornful of political consciousness, is far more harmful.

    Mostly I was going for the insomnia joke, suggesting that Zanza was in need of a good night's rest.

    Good morning.

    Don't try to mansplain us with your Grönköpian ways, Ruda.

    Good evening.
