He gives Leon 48,000 Pesetas for the Salazar Family Crown, the most expensive treasure in the game. That's less than three hundred Euros

The RE4 merchant hasn't appeared in any subsequent games because he sold all that Spanish cultist treasure at a 10,000% markup and has comfortably retired

add bonus semicolons to the ends of your lines of code to indicate how anxious you are about them

I have been stuck watching Adobe training videos for an hour and I have concluded there is nothing marketers want more in their workplace than the ability to reach out and manipulate abstract holographic shapes floating around them like a cloud of midges

'Four limbs, one head, lungs work most of the time' is a 300mb dependency package that everybody complains about but nobody has gotten around to replacing

The whole 'humans share ninety-something percent of their genetic code with [insert animal here]' thing makes a lot more sense when you realise most projects probably share ninety-something percent of their code in Javascript libraries

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

rules for designing cave environments:
- learn to make the most of your half-dozen royalty-free rock meshes
- anything can be bioluminescent if you need it badly enough

Don't copy that floppy
Don't archive that hard drive
Don't make a dash with that flash
Don't scrape that paper tape
Don't let anyone see that DVD
Don't write an epistle about that holographic crystal
Don't retrain that artificial brain
Don't duplicate that quantum state
Don't retool that psychic mindspool
Don't clone that stone

98%: your JS framework designed to obsolete 'refreshing the page' quietly died, again

Consider: Salvatore from Wind Waker but as a DM

Adjust the gamma slider until you can barely see the looming figure in your peripheral vision

Alright look, if I have to manually edit like half a dozen configs to accommodate it, that's not a 'plugin' any more. You are insulting the usability of plugs. That's a wireup, or possibly a messilysolderon

MMO NPC who tells you excitedly about the latest game updates without really understanding why they happen or where they come from. Every time there's a patch, another square of fabric mysteriously appears on their long, shabby coat

J.C: Can I borrow those for a moment?
JENSEN: What? Oh the sunglasses? Yeah, they just unclip.
...
J.C, holding up the lenses: Hey. Hey. Guess what?
JENSEN: No.
J.C: My vision is--
JENSEN: Don't you dare.
J.C: My vision is pigmented.

mastodon tab didn't load quite right and I feel personally attacked

I have logged onto Gumtree and entered the realm of people using 'retro' to describe furniture that looks like it had paint spilled on it and subsequently half-removed with a barbecue scraper

*remembers Ferngully* hey why did everyone insist I was the bat?
