@jmcpatino this is a specious argument. if we can afford a 2b luxury jet for vips or 100m pork barrel per congressman, we can afford more science

@visakanv have you shared your wallpaper list anywhere?
It’s like our government leaders have never played Civilization
Quoted docligot’s tweet:
Just for reference. Ranking of Countries by R&D spending. If you sort by % of GDP, PH is 5th from the bottom. Vietnam spends double what we do in terms of % and $. Don’t know what we’re proud of. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_research_and_development_spending
Re:Blizzard/HS/China. I fully understand that a lot of people wouldn’t want their esports to be inundated with politics, especially if it’s not even their own country. Nevertheless, the penalty was too heavy-handed, and we must remember that neutrality favors the oppressor
Also: Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our time!
Me: “Ma, may ruler ka?” Ma: “Kailangan ruler? Pwede tape measure?” Me: “Hindi, ruler” Ma: “Sige, meron ako hanapin ko” (Maya maya) Ma: “Kelangan mo pa din ruler?” Me: “Oo” Ma: “Hindi pwede eto?” (shows tape measure) Me: “Hindi” Ma: “Bakit?” Me: “Hindi yan ruler e”
This hurts. But until Blizzard reverses their decision on @blitzchungHS I am giving up playing Classic WoW, which I helped make and helped convince Blizzard to relaunch. There will be no Mark of Kern guild after all.
Let me explain why I am #BoycottBlizzard
I’ve had a blog post draft for a few months now on my thoughts about the congestion and traffic issues in Metro Manila and potential solutions, it just keeps getting longer and longer lol
TIL that “a11y” is short for “accessibility” (the same way i18n means internationalization), and it’s not some weird l33tization of ally

Aside from Joker, I also watched Stuber today, mainly because the ads for this kept showing while I was in the US and it reminded me of Deadpool and Dopinder. Not a very deep movie, but a fun watch. I have no choice but to rate it 5 stars!
JOKER spoiler-free review:
- very dark movie, not like any previous superhero movies at all; don’t bring your kids
it is violent and potentially disturbing, but strangely not as much as the hype made it out to be
Joaquin Phoenix definitely gives a pretty good performance, but IDK about the supposed “Oscar-worthy” hype
some of the shots feels like the director definitely had a lot of fun bringing this story to life
I would have liked less connection to the Batman mythos so that this movie is more stand-alone. I mean, it is pretty much stand-alone, but it does remind you where it’s set and direct connections to the Mythos exist
I think a lot of the story and plot elements are handled well, any concerns I have would largely be nitpicking
No post credits scene
i didnt watch in imax and don’t think it would be relevant
magugustuhan ba ni mama: sure NO
Ultimately, I still prefer that Joker’s origin story remain undetermined, as it makes him more akin to a natural force of chaos, but I accept this movie as a version that even canon Joker could have told and that might have been believable
it’s definitely a better movie overall than Suicide Squad, Man of Steel or Dawn of Justice or Justice League, but it’s also a different completely type of movie, so the comparison is difficult
I still like Ledger’s Joker the best, the character is best opposite Batman

Having The Last of Us Remastered free on PS+ is great for first-time players, but I’m not sure I’d like to relive that story. IMO Ellie and Joel’s story is best on the first time through
Obligatory “tweetdeck is down” tweet
I just saw a post by someone denouncing socialism, someone who I happen to know benefited from free/govt subsidized high school and college education. Idk I feel like that’s kind of ironic
@gangbadoy I think mahirap magka tell all books dito, hindi masyado uso yung ganung laglagan among our politicos
Your alcohol-centered event is not inclusive.
End of story. No exceptions. Ratio doesn’t matter.
Alcohol. Is. Not. Inclusive.
I don’t need to justify that to you. This is a blanket fact.
@Westraid I guess it depends on whether brad pitt is available to play me lol
@gangbadoy do we have such books about the previous admins?

Survey: What are you looking forward to?
@Westraid yeah, they have some special cards this time with that fancy art and frame, their art guys have been knocking it out of the park
@Westraid Did you mean this one specifically
@DLo_MD “kahapon” is an indicator of specificity, not tense, i.e. it identifies when specifically in the past you were bored :p
Taglish not being a formal language means it doesn’t really have any rules, but I’m still annoyed whenever someone uses “double past tense” such as “Na-bored ako kahapon”

@Westraid too many backlogs to list out lol. a lot of them are rpgs too so they take a long time (still have a couple to finish on vita/3ds even!)
@Westraid this game and fire emblem are the ones tempting me to get a switch. but of course i still have so many backlogs!
