    I've actively avoided engaging with so much of the media around George Floyd's death because I find it exhausting and cyclical in a way I can't handle.

    games were sooooo weird in medieval times. probably ‘cause they hadn’t invented fun yet. “hey man you give me a thing and i’ll give you the same thing in a year” that’s not a game. that’s just borrowing. games have a pac-man in them
