I like video games, I like writing, so c-bloggin' at Destructoid seems like the recreational thing to do. I'm in sciences, so writing is almost NEVER on the menu. Even if writing were on the menu, it would likely not be about video games, so it would suck. This is better.
If I've written anything so far, I hope you enjoyed it. If you are reading this before I've had a chance to write, hang in there.
Disclaimer: I AM NOT RACIST. LIKE NOT EVEN A LITTLE BIT. AND I ALSO HAVE NO PROBLEMS WITH MY GAY FRIENDS, BUT THAT DOESN'T REALLY APPLY HERE (all caps were necessary).
Not to be a dick or anything, but if Africa was more or less totally OK at the end of 2012... dude, I'm not fuckin' landing there.
In the movie they were like "Cool! It never flooded! Let's roll, bitches!". Little do they know, the Africans are going to be waving their middle fingers at them from the shoreline. "Who needs humanitarian aid now, huh? You didn't listen when Bono had commercials about sponsoring kids, and now we can't see your big shiny metal boats because of the glare of our fresh water and newly forming ice from the increased elevation! What's that? You're hungry? HAHAHA! Get the fuck away from our continent!"
I mean, Africa was pretty fucked up BEFORE 2012, imagine now, after all the wispy clouds of corrupt government have fallen into cracks in the Earth's crust, how totally *bananas* that place would be; solar flares don't do shit to AK-47's and RPGs.
Just saying, odds are the good people of Africa wouldn't exactly welcome a bunch of multi-billionaires in big fancy metal boats with open arms. Even if they did, Africa ain't exactly the best place to dump a bunch of apocalypse survivors, because the apocalypse has been going on in Africa since like... right after the Egyptian Empire... donate now, I guess?
Well, the fact remains that if the magnetic poles went down, even for a couple hours, all the cosmic and solar radiation and highly energetic charged particles we were shielded from before would fry some of our DNA as well as our electronics well before the guy who played the emotionless assassin in Serenity could give an inspiring speech about compassion to all the other Arks.
Right, the next one will be about video games. Promise.
Oh, and here's something cool I whipped up a while ago:
