Sagacious Himself — brevity in circumlocution: never blague — suffering genius

best indie bundled game ever [since december 2013]

Filed under: bargain,games — Sagacious Himself @ 7:46 am

Skyward Collapse (Arcen Games) presents game elements I have extracted from RTS (or driving a track backwards in a racing game): pitting one AI against another  — after an unbalanced AI (or AI expecting me to have played dozens of hours daily most every day).

Fight AIs with the objective of allowing neither to annihilate the other, but encouraging carnage and destruction (and rebuilding).

For a more ethereal aspect rts elements are placed ‘floating’.

As there are many random elements saving frequently is not only strongly encouraged by the game itself but essential.

If you don’t enjoy resource management, turn based constraints, or creative use of RTS this might not be the game for you.  While I prefer desura skyward collapse is also available to fans of steam DRM resource waste.

With multiplayer, co-op, and single player $5 is well reasonable.

is morgan freeman’s thought process the result of “random chance” [sic] ?

Filed under: BULLSHIT — Sagacious Himself @ 4:02 pm

Through the WackyHole with morgan is a free way to elevate your blood pressure or test the limits of your patience or if you prefer tolerance.

morgan freeman through wackyhole grammar inadvertently

Well before trying to watch a dozen episodes a pattern emerges: fiction

Simply pour a powdered golf club- and ball into a golf bag and shake until the ball reassembles into the course hole or the wackyhole.  Is some hidden force guiding his life [other than lust or wrath]?

chaos != random

what if gene expression operates on chance?  And what if certitude is happenstance?  And what if this tv program was free from truth- or logic dearth?

It’s not difficult to predict that the channel will be changed before the entire program plays.

Hegelian quantum mechanics?  oh joy!

Is morgan freeman all in the mind?  Unfortunately not.

Will he cease to exist when his visage is no longer seen?  If only.  And if only for those irksome with physics afflictions.

for everything else there’s usenet

piracy is a moral crime.  removing license checks from duly licensed apps is not.

Never invest reading business column by Oliver Pursche: he can’t understand much or priciples of successful reasoning

Filed under: all these — Sagacious Himself @ 3:34 am

Advance to Aristotle 101 not collecting $200

Personally, if the choices are between crap and reading Oliver

A potential asset is not an asset.

As  a currency, Bitcoin has nothing that you want or need:  namely centralized governance, and the backing of an asset with value.

In this context BitCoin has the same backing as the US dollar: fiat.  Market regulation is ever so helpful to achieve control: removing liberty from the market not much unlike the fed puppet sucking value from the economy.

I have little interest in bitcoin because of the many nefarious types who mine — not that they mine but with whose resources they mine.

is the Fed pumping money into the economy



is the Fed pumping money into the economy to prop it up


or to help achieve policy goals?

no, unless sharing goals with a vampire

this is exactly the feature that enabled governments around the world to act in concert and stave off financial Armageddon in 2008 and 2009.

Sure if by stave off he means stoke up.

there are ideological issues associated with a central bank’s control over a currency

Merely little issues like individuality, liberty, self governance, accountability that surely were never discussed by the founders.
