Two students, James and John were given a grammar test by their teacher. The question was, “is it better to use “had” or “had had” in this example sentence?”
The teacher collected the tests, and looked over their answers.
James, while John had had “had”, had had “had had.” “Had had” had had a better effect on the teacher.

“For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can’t readily accept the God formula, the big answers don’t remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command nor faith a dictum. I am my own god. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.”— Charles Bukowski (via feellng)

quaddie has inspired me to start a YouTube black market at work where we exchange funny videos in exchange for pizza, since youtube is blocked. The funnier the video the better the toppings, but if it isn’t funny you get microwaved pizza! Then everyone will have to step their game up. I’m expecting to have a thriving underground economy by the end of the week
I miss the days where a new Final Fantasy announcement would fill my heart with a neverending stream of excitement, where for weeks after the announcement, or any new info, I would imagine myself adventuring through new and fantastic beautiful lands, getting attached to wonderful, complex…
Except that’s not a trailer. That’s a sneak peek. A preview. The game is still in development. We get little sense of how the game is going to be from that. It’s meant to showcase the Neato graphics and KH-style battle system, as well as the open world. Is it more steeped in our reality? No. Not really. Not more so than the other games. I think you’re making premature assumptions when we haven’t seen a whole lot yet.
I think a game whose slogan literally is “A fantasy based on reality” would be expected to, you know, deliver a higher level of realism?. Plus in the previous trailer there was the very real world-inspired city, and in this one they are driving a pretty regular looking car?
With this I’m not saying the game will be bad. What I’m saying is they have removed a lot of the wonder and awe of the fantasy worlds of old, so this has just become another game I’m just interested in, and nothing special.
