Rants Service Pack #1

XML is shit.. but when everyone eats shit, then I guess that shit starts tasting good, and most (?) people now just looove it !
Oh, but it's human-readable ! Yes, a string of hex values is also human readable..

C++ is pretty much shit as well.. but there was no alternative and I had to move on from 'C' ..sigh..
But if could be fixed.. all you need is a time machine and an hacked-up Terminator handy.

Unity/Unreal Engine/OMG-I-Just-Want-to-Make-a-Game Tool... are just a way to be somebody's bitch. One either is a developer or is a user.. if you use Unity/WhateverEngine, then you're a devuser.
OK, it's not all so black or white.. that's true, in fact Unity is just brown 8) (..conceptually, because I wouldn't know the first thing about those canned engines).
The engine companies don't want you to make games.. they just want people to waste money and depend on them (aka "being a bitch of").
So, man-up and write your code !! And don't start crying about how hard it is, or how long it takes on how you don't want to "reinvent the wheel" (the lamest meme of all).. it's all about you learning how to get things done.

Men wearing hats indoor, because they just want to look cooler.. are another category of "people that ought to be strangled in front of their children" (cit.)
Useless fedora hats or those condom-looking condom-hats that are so popular in Japan.. they just look lame.. especially if I'm sitting behind you and trying to look ahead !

Men should really not wear shorts.. and sandals, and baggy t-shirts. Just dress properly, nobody wants to see your legs !
Also I don't really care about your t-shirt.. if you want to send a message, leave a suicide note and jump off a building. I'll be reading the news 8)

I've developed a full-on hate for TV now. Before it was the commercials, so loud and in your face. Now it's 99% of what's on. Serial TV which you have to learn to like. Guns guns guns and more guns. Or lots of knives and gang yakuza beatings if you're in Japan.
The sad thing is that the American serial TV are rather realistic.. people just like to shoot at each other, they like crime, murder and so they think that it's cool to actually do it (death is exciting !)
Inability to separate human instincts and curiosity from reality is a very dangerous thing.. and not all cultures are at the same abstraction level on that.
So, TV is shittier than ever and luckily we don't need it anymore. Dear TV, please die soon !

Politics is... ahhhh... what can I say. I'm constantly amazed on how people can reason on one side and the act completely dumb on the other.
Politics is a reflection of people's inability or unwillingness to be consistently coherent and logical.

People that want to become game designers because they are good at games and know all about them.. are simply doomed to fail.
You don't wake up one morning and become a movie director and not everyone in the movie industry can be a damned director ! Some will become directors.. just not you ;)

And, that's it for now.. (^_^)
