So uhh, I bought an RC Buggy kit that I built a few days ago. I intend to build this thing up to club-race-spec, win a bunch of races while I save up for a high-end buggy to compete in EU races.

they didnt add it to make it taste better, they did it to lower the cost iirc
This is the quintessential American business strategy. Push over the consumer just to save a few pennies.

Reminder that American chocolate has no restriction on the use of sour milk. It literally tastes like vomit, as the chocolate literally contains the same acid as vomit, butyric acid, extracted from the milk.

Dark chocolate is the epitome of Chad food

Requiescat In Pace.

I remember watching a ton of Mythbusters as a small kid. Thanks to that show, my English is as good as it is.

Yo controversial opinion;
Men and Women were not made to be 'equal'. They were made to be complementary.

What good have graphics ever done to make games good? Absolutely nothing.
Nowadays games take millions upon millions to make. Of which most of the budget is spent on 'game art', And the creation of this game art takes 100x as long as it took 10 years ago.

And are the games any better for it? Pfff, haha you wish.

Look at any new game. $60 price tag. For what? A bunch of cutscenes and some bad gameplay.
Sure it looks good, but if it plays like stuff it's worthless.
Saying a recent game is good is like saying "Yeah I've got a Ferrari in my garage. Is it fun to drive? I don't know, the engine doesn't work".
Why would I want graphics if I can play Quake 2. Or System Shock. Or even Half Life.

also rebels had 0 structure which is stoopid
This is my main problem with the rebels. They appear incredibly untrained. It's hard to suspend my disbelief when untrained, chaotic rebels win wars.

My sister and I occasionally still play BrikWars scenarios with our own cheesy ruleset lol. Lots of fun to do every now and then.
BrikWars? Is this like, LEGO Wargaming? I've been wanting to get into tabletop wargaming for a while, but I know nobody who's into it. Maybe it's worth checking out this proposal made to me once by this shop I go to every so often. They host tabletop events, maybe I'll find something interesting there.

Tbh I just like how calm and collected Darth Vader seems. Especially whenever something goes wrong. Compare that to Kylo Ren's childish temper tantrums and you'll be able to understand why I've always sympathised with Vader the most out of any character. That said, I've always leaned towards the Empire than any other faction. Mostly because they are incredibly disciplined, structured and efficient. Other factions have always seemed so chaotic and unstructured to me.

I've been cooking and reading literature relating to cooking a lot more recently. Mostly stuff like Apicius' de re Coquinaria. Aside from that, I've been working on 3D Printing a working RC Focke-Wulf Ta-152.

Other hobbies are Carpentry (Built my own desk from the ground up), Airsoft, Playing guitar/bass, Electronics (rPi/Arduino), Programming (68k assembly, C, C++, C#), Gamedesign and -development, Tinkering with my old Amiga 500 and hopefully soon I'll get around to building a forge and acquiring an anvil in the hopes of making some plate armor.

I really don't have enough time to do everything and it frequently annoys me.
