  1. Here's a challenge:

     

    Start a browser in private browsing, for a fresh history.

    Go to youtube without logging in.

    Repeatedly watch whatever video you want, then return to the front page, making note of the recommeneded videos.

    Your score is the number of videos required before Family Guy stops being recommended.

    Lower scores are better.

     

    Hard Mode: Get rid of late night talk shows, movie trailers, and sports shows too.

     

    Impossible Mode: Get rid of bullshit clickbait list videos.

      Just to be fair I tried this myself, with the impossible challenge.  It's technically possible because the browser I use with months of history doesn't get any of those videos.  But I gave up on a fresh history after 160 videos.

       

      The interesting thing about it is that it feels like youtube is actively taunting you.  You'll get an almost perfect slate of recommendations, with one offending video (often the family guy asian drycleaner video, or the brian forced mating one).  Then you watch another video, come back to the main page, and nearly every single recommendation is stuff you'd get on a fresh browser, with nothing whatsoever related to what you've been watching.

      Yeah my usual account will pass it all, but damn you have to go far before Youtube stops telling you Brain forced mating is something you want to see.

      On Edge, not logged in, with a search for "Ok Go I won't let you down" and watch of the first video, I went back to the home page and not a single Family Guy or Fortnite clip.

       

      However upon my next search (siivagunner, picked first clip) and returning to the home screen, Asian dry cleaner first in line. Unreal.

  2. When you're choosing a new show, find one that you like. You don't have to love it right away.

      I binged petscop a couple of months ago and really enjoyed it. Hope we get a new video on the 25th

  3. I'm starting to think that VoiceOverPete is actually a virtual youtuber.

      Somehow every time I think I have him figured out there are ten more videos from two weeks ago with more information.

       

      Would not be surprised if he is a robot and his "son" is his inventor.

  4. Finally save up enough to craft a second copy of a legendary.

    Find out it's been restricted to one per deck.

      Unfortunately there is no other card which fits as nicely into my doggie aggro deck.

      The cost went from 6 to 7, which means it can't be played the same turn as phantom howl, which costs 4.  The other alternatives also cost 7, except for Babd Catha, but I already run a full suite of that.

  5. The most useful ability that the internet has taught me is how to defocus my eyes at will.

      I did it when I was a kid but my mom said I'd wreck my eyes doing that, and I certainly didn't want that! Instead I just stare at screens for 16 hours a day.

  6. Researching the early history of virtual youtubing is like descending into a fever dream.

      Yeah the nightcore community is weird from what little shit I've seen of it. It's like someone smashed a group of ravers and a group of weebs together and decides fuck it, let's see what happens.

       

      That being said I'd be lying if I said I didn't like some nightcore. The quality goes from "total fucking shit" to "pretty good" and it mostly depends on the original song. EDM will always take it a lot better than fucking New Divide.

      because it does to me.

      Sonic R, Sonic Rush, Sonic Forces, Sonic 2006, Sonic Shuffle, Tails's Adventure.

       

      ALL SONIC THE HEDGEHOG MUSIC

       

      (Except Reach for the Stars)

       

      (Okay, and except Sonic Chronicles, but that music is so bad it's kind of charming)

  9. After weeks of listening to music from youtube mixes generated from various starting points and with varying browser history I have determined that all roads lead to Africa.

      Is this the new "6 degrees of Kevin Bacon?"

    2. Gyokuyoutama

      Sure.  Go to any song on youtube, click on recommended videos, and see how long it takes you to get back to Toto.

      you mean you won't be a key part of The Simpsons' animation team?

      Probably would hate kusoge as a distraction from pure philosophical activities.

       

      He'd like visual novels though.

      You've stumbled onto a major company conspiracy. I suggest you go off the grid for a while.

      I hate to end the speculation but it turned out that the culprit was that the company directory once again had inaccurate information.  The office number was correct, it was just in another building.

       

      I had a suspicion it was something like that, seeing as how my department as listed in the directory only contains one person who actually still works here.

      @FreshHalibut You must be thinking of someone else. I am not a farmer.

  18. I have to learn Polish so that I can stay up to date with the Heroes 3 modding community.

    1. Raison d'être

      At least the mods'll be quite polished.

    2. Kraszu

      And I thought that was russians that were still pushing HoMM 3.

      Whatever, post whatever you need and I will help you out as long as it actually is polish.

    3. Gyokuyoutama

      Gyokuyoutama

      That's what I thought too.  If I recall correctly Wake of Gods was made by Russians, and the actual Heroes V + were made by Russians, as were the new King's Bounty games.


      But recently on a whim I started looking around to see if mods had progressed and found that there were a whole hell of a lot of them, and that like 75% of the discussion is in Polish.  (10% is still in Russian, 10% in English and the remaining 5% is a mixture of other Eastern European languages).

  19. What's the minimum number of hours of sleep you need before you die?

  20. I think I'd do a good job as that guy at every video game company that lies and says that every feature imaginable will definitely be in the next release.

      In terms of overall success, Peter Molyneux seems to be the guy to model yourself after.  He may be a joke, but he doesn't seem to get the hatred that people like David Cage, Todd Howard or whoever the spokesman for No Man's Sky do.  This in spite of (or maybe because of) his claims being easily the most ludicrous.

    4. Expresate

      Expresate

      People say Todd Howard lies, but I haven't seen him do so. "It just works" was in reference to doors working after you place them in settlements. That is true. He didn't say "there will be no bugs in this game at all."

  21. Someday there will be enough distance in time for people to claim that Daikatana was actually a innovative classic that was ahead of its time.

     

    I mean, if they do it for Omikron it's going to happen eventually for Daikatana.

  22. Apparently I'm in the perfect demographic because the Nielsen corporation is constantly asking me to fill out surveys.


    This time they only sent three bucks though so I think I'll hold out for more.  Once they sent 30.
