A couple of hours? Once civilization has ended, billions of people will be dead. Explain how you can reverse that after you have your fun?

It's not like the civilized industrial society after colonizing whole planet for its use is not already on path of killing billions of people, ending itself, and also already doing mass exctinction of species and killing quintillions of individual animals while also making whole ecosystems and ways of life vanish from the world. And I am not even "primmie", just not living in complete denial.

That and this criticism also assumes there is some kind of magical civilization off switch that anprims are going to flick. Most anprims are probably aware civilization is here to stay unless there is some human extinction event ( which could happen and would ultimately be caused by civilization ).

Really you could only apply the "billions dead" critique to some sort of Anprim Accelerationist. Which I really really hope isn't a thing.

idk fam, sounds like primmie propaganda to me

those billions of deaths are for the betterment of our progressive society after all.

progress requires sacrifice dontchyaknow.

sure the global south is on fire and child slavery is bigger than ever, but Alexa just ordered me a new blender so

how are we going to achieve fully automated luxury space post-scarcity if we don't climb the bones of a billion laborers to reach our technological utopia?

YOU WANT TO STEAL OUR HAMBURGERS!

Are we not even allowed cars then?

We're heading in the right direction, at least. Things are getting better. We no longer have scarcity of labourer bones.

You're posting a meme that promotes the destruction of civilization so I'll ask again... are you a primmie?

Come to think of it, these memes are pretty prim since I made them 3 years ago. Reruns sure are comforting tho.

I've felt a bit uneasy about Sonic. On one hand, awesome plot line in Sonic 2 of going from the jungle to the chemical plant, freeing all the captured animals — too many MegaDrive games are exclusively about shooting Russians or ducks, and Sonic (along with Ecco) are great exceptions to this. On the other hand, Sonic plastic figures were part of the Happy Meals back then, and he's a mascot for a military tech company (SErvice GAmes). I'm glad he's being reappropriated having his purpose clarified.

In the 2020 film, Jim Carrey-Robotnik rambles about wanting to spread anarchism. Seemed odd, but of course he's ancap. I think I get it now.

I'd say playing S1K.BIN in Mednafen on discarded laptops does feel slightly primitivist, as compared with hardware required by modern AAA games.

I don't understand why you aren't satisfied with the queer answers given to you.

What, queer answers aren't good enough or something?
