You can only watch Rick and Morty and It's Always Sunny if you're smart!!

You can only watch Rick and Morty and It's Always Sunny if you're smart!!

Why is it always Rick and Morty with these type of posts? I still don't exactly understand what's so "smart" about it.

Don't you get it? He turned himself into a pickle! That's real smart comedy there

Every time I see something about how Rick and Morty is for smart people, I'm reminded of this magnificent comment on a thread.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewers head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase "Wubba Lubba Dub Dub," which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Dan Harmon's genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. 😂

And yes, by the way, i DO have a Rick & Morty tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid 😎

Stuff like this makes me embarrased to say I like Rick and Morty

Ubisoft hosted For Honor tournament ends in embarrassment with the final matches consisting entirely of players abusing exploits and an incredibly unbalanced ability.

Ubisoft hosted For Honor tournament ends in embarrassment with the final matches consisting entirely of players abusing exploits and an incredibly unbalanced ability.

Recently a For Honor tournament was held to celebrate the release of the two new heroes to the game. Unfortunately for the community and Ubisoft, they hosted a tournament in a time when the game's balance and technical stability is somewhat questionable.

For instance, one tactic on a particular hero (Raider) is so effective that there's essentially nothing one can do to counteract it (regardless of character.) Many matches resulted in gameplay such as this:

Ontop of Raider being overpowered, certain well voiced bugs in the game became apparent, which lead to the loss of a match. Here, a player is repelled from a grapple attempt and falls down, a bug which occurs on inclined terrain:

And finally, the winner of the tournament admitted to using an exploit called "Unlock tech", which is a technique that changes certain properties of the abilities and moves in the game if preformed at particular times (for instance, it can make certain attacks bypass one's block, or make attacks faster, etc.) The creative director's response to this when the winner received the award:

This is a downright embarrassment for the For Honor community. These issues are by no means recent issues, and have been of heavy contention the past few weeks leading up to this tournament in community discussion. For Honor is theoretically supposed to be a fighting game, but this tournament has potentially shown to thousands of people just how thin the game is in a setting where players are supposedly trying their absolute best to secure the prize money.

Thoughts? I'm curious to what non-For Honor players think of this. Ubisoft's incompetence when it has come to balancing For Honor is nothing new to the community, but I'm interested to hear what people exterior to the community are thinking. Is it confirming you preconceptions of the game?

Not trying to step on anyone's toes but is there even an audience for For Honor esports?

If it were even remotely balanced there probably would be. I personally love the core gameplay, think it feels smooth and intuitive as hell, and has plenty of room for genuine competitive depth... if only the developers had even the slightest idea of how their own game played at a competitive level. The game is so ridiculously defense-favored that the only way for players to actually be aggressive is to do extremely cheesy shit like Raider charging grab spam or to just straight up abuse exploits like flicker or unlock tech.

Sooo, nothing different from a couple months ago... Super defensive meta that favors quick zone attacks and grabs that can be countered infinitely.

Unlocking tech has been around for quite a while and is why I quit playing, destroys the basic cornerstone of the game and was honestly super buggy when first discovered with Shugoki, which led to potential double hits off one attack animation.

It is saying something when the divide between good and average players is relying on a bug to circumvent the cancerous defensive meta.

Pretty sure everyone who's played it understands that For Honor was a game with a great concept but horrendous execution. Ubisoft proved time after time that they had no idea how to balance the game at high skill levels. I'm pretty sure they convinced themselves that the gimmicky 4v4 with power ups was going to be the competitive game mode so they never bothered to have the classes be balanced.

Explanation: Only in the fleeting darkness of a total solar eclipse is the light of the solar corona easily visible. Normally overwhelmed by the bright solar disk, the expansive corona, the sun's outer atmosphere, is an alluring sight. But the subtle details and extreme ranges in the corona's brightness, although discernible to the eye, are notoriously difficult to photograph. Pictured here, however, using multiple images and digital processing, is a detailed image of the Sun's corona taken during the 2008 August total solar eclipse from Mongolia. Clearly visible are intricate layers and glowing caustics of an ever changing mixture of hot gas and magnetic fields. Bright looping prominences appear pink just above the Sun's limb. A similar solar corona might be visible through clear skies in a thin swath across the USA during a total solar eclipse that occurs just one week from tomorrow.

Fuck that's cool

I've only been waiting for this for over 10 years after seeing a NASA reference to it.

it seems to be about as high as 1/6th of the radius of the sun, so at least 100.000km

Oh wow...this would be my dream room. Snuggle up on one of those comfy sofas with a book, rain falling outside on those huge windows, a nice scotch by my side.....heaven!

I love it although I could never do white furniture (because I'm slob). Just put a sectional in there or something where I could put my feet and I'm in heaven!

Omaha has two seasons other than those.

After reading the article it seems like they are trying really hard to blame the oxygen vendor, when in reality the hospital didn't renew it's contract and owed them money. It seems like the vendor was just doing business, and the hospital administrators expected a free service outside of a contract. The blame lies entirely with them.

What $ the $ fuck $ were $ the $ hospital $ administrators $ thinking?

That.

This is such a tragedy and then when you read about the position that the doctors and other hospital staff found themselves in frantically trying to save as many children as possible- http://www.news18.com/news/india/gorakhpur-hospital-tragedy-when-doctor-kafeel-ahmad-emptied-his-...
