I will never understand how EA went from the game company everyone knew and quoted with that "Its in the game!" slogan to a laughing stock and poster child of shitty studios.

Bro if that shit failed to perform then it's on them for failing to manufacture enough. The demand was there. And it out performed the Xbox whateverthefucknow.

Well, yeah. You'd have to be an absolute fucking idiot to say otherwise. The dude tried an insurrection. He routinely violated American democracy. It's almost like if you elect a wanna be dictator he's gonna, you know, become a dictator

There is no fine on earth that could be levied that would discourage others from doing this. If they have profits higher then who cares.

I'm in favor of forceful dissolution.

If you prove you cannot run a company safely, repeatedly violate safety violations and continue to do so for DECADES then you shouldn't be allowed to sell any product, ever again, to the public. The company should be scrapped and all assets sold off or let the government take it and start making cars but drop the cost massively and only sell to its citizens ala pharmaceuticals.

People get their drivers license taken away for far less than this. For pretty small things overall. Toyota laughed at customer safety for 30 years and has only admitted it when caught. Why the fuck is this company allowed to continue existing?

Good. Suffer, you utter shitgibbon. I want you to be as terrified as everyone else who you had to 'involve' yourself with was.

Bet you're sweating now, fuck face.

Bad dragon sells adult sex toys of a wide variety, most common being dildos. Dildos that are modeled off of dragons or other fantasy-esque creatures.

I kinda want one.

Who am I kidding. Not even kinda. I absolutely want one. A specific model and everything. I just cannot remotely afford it and likely never will...

He was part of a team that created devices allowing people to play what they wanted on switch, 3DS and some other consoles. He was convicted of fraud and imprisoned for two years before being released. He still has to pay off a fine of 10 million dollars so Nintendo is garnishing his wages for the rest of his life. ~~Which pisses me off because he's on Disability in Canada which is barely enough to live on (trust me...) and also taxpayer funds.~~ Not to mention that there is no way in fucking hell that his part in all of this adds up to $10 million dollars in lost revenue for Nintendo which is exactly why that fine was applied.

Edit: Apparently disability can't be garnished. Was a slight fuck up on my end. I had misremembered something and misread something which led to that. Nonetheless, situation still massively fucked for applying a $10 million (well, 14.5 million but 10 million of that is for Nintendo) fine for a dude who made $320,000 off of the hacks. However if he did make any money outside of Disability, they would immediately be entitled to 30% of it. Fucking insane.

Well, for those curious this is from Jim Carrey's wikipedia but it's also not nearly as bad as it looks. Only one of those things a real problem.

Wrongful death lawsuits

Two lawsuits but over the same death that had zero proof that Carrey was in anyway involved. He started dating a woman named Cathriona White in 2012. She got married in 2013 but they continued their relationship in an on-again-off-again style until her suicide in 2015. The first suit claimed that Carreys wealth and personal influence to get the medication that she killed herself with. There was no evidence that this had happened in any way whatsoever. There was evidence that she had issues with prescription medication before she met Carrey though. The second wrongful death lawsuit was over the same death but this time from the mother of the deceased and for something completely different. This time it was claims that Carrey was riddled with STDs and had lied about it and hid the results from White. Both lawsuits were completely dismissed with no legal proceedings ever going further than those suits. No settlements were made. Carrey was a pallbearer at Whites funeral.

Vaccine skepticism

This is the one as bad as it looks. He wrote an article in 2009 that were doubting Vaccines and in 2015 he said the California governor was a "corporate fascist" who was "poisoning" children by enacting the vaccination requirements. He didn't say anything about the COVID vaccines that I can find elsewhere. Dude was an idiot but it's been 10 years and with him not talking too much about it I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. In 2009 he was dating Jenna McCarthy, a known anti-vax lunatic. Brainwashing doesn't take forever to get rid of. If he's still anti-vax then yeah, fuck him, but after 10 years without a peep during the biggest vaccine blitz known to man? I'm willing to hesitantly give him the benefit of the doubt. Am surprised no one pressed him on it though.

Political and Spiritual views

He believes in that 'The Secret' type nonsense "The Law of Attraction". Said he visualized having a $10 million cheque and putting it in his pocket and then 7 years later he got a $10 million cheque for Dumb and Dumber. Not really problematic so much as bizarre/unrealistic. He's also an outspoken socialist. The big part of that section is him talking about sparking an "international incident" because he was making political cartoons of Orange Hitler and then Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. He made some cartoon that criticized fascism by depicting Mussolinis death. This pissed off Mussolinis granddaughter on twitter and she threw a hissyfit.

Artwork and NFTs

He's a painter and has been for a while. The section mostly focuses on that. There is a single line about NFTs, it being: "In April 2022, Carrey announced that he had minted his first art NFT via the NFT platform SuperRare. The NFT is based on a painting entitled Sunshower, and is accompanied by original voiceover." Apparently he also released a couple NFTs under a different name before releasing that public one. That is the entirety of his involvement within the NFT community. Also something stupid he did but given it isn't an ongoing thing he didn't push relentlessly it doesn't seem like that big a deal either.

HOWEVER

The title is totally fucking true. Live your life like a good person, don't be a fuckwit, listen to experts, and don't jump on trends immediately without doing research. Might be a tiny problem or a big problem but you will have problems if you go down an alternate path. Problems you will then have openly deserved.

Forget the fact they were hostages. They had already openly surrendered and were waving a white flag. They were non-combatants in every sense of the word. They murdered them.

Israel claims that 61% of deaths are civilian which is already beyond fucking abhorrent but with this news, is that number remotely reliable?

Israel has been dying to take every square inch of Palestine for decades. They took their opportunity and they are openly slaughtering the population. 61% by their own admission. Over half of all deaths have been civilian but still they keep pushing on. They kill their own people and still they push on.

I no longer see a difference between Israels government under Bibi/his party and the Nazis in WW2. Openly exterminating a group of people they do not like under the argument that they have some holy/divine/superior claim to land. That is literally the fucking Nazi playbook.

It is genuinely bonechilling and horrifying.

Edit: Can y'all please stop downvoting this person for being confused? Rule number one. Be kind. They're not being a dick here or being cruel or anything. Give them the benefit of the doubt please.


JK Rowling is the author of Harry Potter and was primarily known for this. Loved, even, for this. An enormous fanbase. Not to say that there weren't issues with her portrayal of POC characters or doses of antisemitic behavior (The Goblin Bank literally has a MASSIVE Star of David in the middle of their lobby) but people still loved her nonetheless.

Yet overtime she started adding random stupid things to canon. People asking about bathrooms and her randomly tweeting in response that wizards used to just shit themselves and then magic it all away. This happened more and more with all manner of subjects that started to really point out she was a piece of shit. When people started talking about her portrayal of various different characters, she sort of went off the deep end. She started getting really entrenched in her position and bitter towards everyone. One of these positions was that trans homies are not homies. The typical "mental illness/grooming/rapists" reasoning. Her position within the fandom fell into utter freefall and fractured an enormous amount of said fandom. This then bled into popular culture as a whole because she's such a popular and influential public figure. She just kept digging and digging and digging and now she's primarily known online as "That bigoted bitch who wrote the wizard books". The entire Harry Potter franchise has become slightly toxic to the touch. Hogwarts Legacy was released to immense backlash and almost none of it was the fact that the game was a raging, repetitive and extremely badly written pile of hot garbage that had no character development or story consequences. Even the actor who played Hermione (not sure about others) came out and said that they would have nothing to do with a Harry Potter continuation or reboot if JK Rowling was involved in any way whatsoever which is what led JK and WB to team up to remake the Harry Potter series. There has been a TV show that was announced with JK herself being heavily involved.

While still a massive franchise and a massive fandom, Harry Potter has aggressively slouched in those ratings and has been inextricably linked to the personal opinions of the author formerly known as JK Rowling. Honestly I just refer to her as "that transphobic bitch who wrote about the wizards" most of the time now.

Edit: Fix'd.

Bro. You almost gave me a heart attack for a second there, making me think I somehow posted something VERY different.
