The President of the US references CoD Plane. I think its news.
Oh man, it's even worse doing it as tech support for your buddies. I feel your pain.
I've heard potential urban myths of some folk just ignoring the notches in the DIMM slots and just forcing the RAM in the wrong way, I'm hoping that's not true...
Agreed. It's clearly not controversial at all. Those that ARE Nazis will of course not see anything controversial about it because they think they are the correct view. The rest of us (thankfully a majority) disagree.
I never thought we'd back here battling Nazis as a real non-trivial entity again 72 years later, but here we are. I suppose 72 years is long enough for the events that transpired in WWII to be far enough in the past where no one has a real attachment to how truly vile that time was.
Because Brendan is a smart guy and he should know that if a guy who's playing a character based on a sort of lame stereotypical 80s movies star, and he talks about round house kicking you, you should know instantly he's having a laugh. Especially when he randomly adds "lightning" at the end to make it absolutely clear. The whole reaction was childish.
It's very sad it instantly devolved to "someone did a violence on me once" wah wah etc.
I think that's up to Brendan, not us. I don't really care how much somebody is joking, if they're some dude on the internet (i.e. not a personal friend) with thousands upon thousands of fans/followers (many, many, many of whom take him 100% seriously), I certainly wouldn't want them making 'jokes' about beating me up, and I've never had a traumatic experience with it.
I don't think it's up to the target of a joke to 'get it', it's up to the guy making it to be funny.
I don't really see why playing a character is an excuse to be an asshole?
