If you do know me - either from one of the communities I requent or from meeting me offline - send me a message.
. . . and all due to a friend of mine who linked me to the community "Dear Mun".
At first, that was where I hung out most times, with a journal created specifically for having an X-Com soldier bitch at me about the mistakes I made whilst playing games from that series. (Yeah, it was - as they say - "for the lulz".)
But it's grown since then. The X-Com soldier is now part of a multidimensional resistance group, and there are a few other characters floating around the old cranium as well.
( You want the full list? Here they are.Collapse )
First things first.
One, a disclaimer: I don't work for 2K Games. I'm just a fan of the X-Com series who's been keeping an eye on this ever since he read a blurb about it in OXM a couple years back.

CHURCHILL: And if you were my wife, I'd drink it!
ERIC: Hey, now, there'll be no delusions of adequacy from you!You see? Much cleverer than the common-or-garden vulgar insults common today.
STUART: Sir, a solar-powered flashlight is more adequate than you!
First, it was underwear with X-ray blocking fig leaves on them.
Now we have shirts with the Fourth Amendment printed on them in metal-bearing ink.
Can't help wondering when the TSA will get the message.
Be silent tonight, be compliant tonightShort, I know, but it gets the point across.
And you will make your precious flight.
If you opt out, then we'll just grope your crotch.
You say you'll arrest us? Well, not on our watch!
Groping keeps the skies safe!
At least, that's what the TSA claims!
" . . . if a group of well-planned and well-funded terrorist plotters makes it to the airport, the chance is pretty low that those blue-shirted, crotch-groping, water-bottle-confiscating TSA agents are going to catch them."Well said, Mr. Schneier. Well said, indeed.
