That is indeed random and fun! I know Final Fantasy doesn't have the best track record for non-interactive spinoffs, but maybe lightning will strike this time.

Though I'm sad to say I never played more than the first few minutes of FF9. Loved what I saw of it, though.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone’s fault. If it was Us, what did that make Me? After all, I’m one of Us. I must be. I’ve certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We’re always one of Us. It’s Them that do bad things. - Jingo, Terry Pratchett

Well, ABBA is releasing a new album on November.

Yes, ABBA. The actual group. As in, Agnetha, Björn, Benny, Anni-Frid. The real deal. New album. November. There are two new songs already released, and, well, if the whole album is as good as that, this will have made 2021 worth it already.

Did I ever say that they're the first band I ever remember loving when I was a kid? Yeah.

Heard their released songs on the radio! I just came into the house and was like: "Is that ABBA? I don't recognise this song..." and then found out.

The guy actually used in-game features from the vanilla version to create something pretty wicked.

And the people on the PC Gamer Facebook page are going, "oh, he's using game commands so he's using mods, that's lame."

Why do human beings exist??

Forgive me if this isn't the right venue for this type of discussion, but it is random and fun so I thought I'd try it. I saw this tweet today and it got me thinking: https://twitter.com/SimpsonsQOTD/status ... 8988712963

How does Springfield's government actually work? Even though there was a "councilman" mentioned in this throwaway gag, I'm not sure there's any evidence that Springfield actually has a city council. Someone else on Twitter suggested that Springfield is run like a New England Town Hall, where the mayor throws an idea open to the crowd and decides what to do based on their sentiments. It would explain why some much graft gravitates toward Mayor Quimby, since he has an awful lot of decisionmaking power.

See the types of things you think about where you cover governmental entities for a living??
