Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.

To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:

Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?

Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.

And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!

On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.”

I about pissed myself laughing at this.

Based on the fact that the value decreases by two and 255 is the highest possible value, it seems more likely that it would really be 254.

but it’s not about race right?


Woah

This is the master post of the new millennium showcasing racism and white supremacy at its finest.
Please stop telling us it’s not about race and to move on cause IT IS and WE WONT until justice is served and equality is established!

My grandmother made a comment that she would “hate to be a white cop” because “white cops don’t get away with anything, everything has to be about race with these people”.
This was in a conversation about Darren Wilson and Michael Brown.
I want to strangle my grandmother half the time I swear to god.

I certainly don’t condone strangling your grandmother. She is obviously wrong because white cops do get away with quite a lot. She is right that everything is made to be a race issue when it comes to crimes committed by white cops against black people. It is not always. I wont say it never is, or even that it is not in most cases. Racism is definitely an issue. But white cops are not the only issue. They are not bad simply because they are white and cops. Most cops are good people. These are the acts of individuals, not white people, and not cops. 

Okay well I’m pretty sure I know that most cops are good people. That doesn’t change the fact that the bad ones are getting away with murder. My point was not that “white cops are bad because white cops”, it was “murder is usually excused because white cop”.
Which is usually what anyone means when they’re talking about an oppressive group, at least to my understanding???
And I’m not actually going to strangle my grandmother, I’m just frustrated because she tells me I’m too liberal to have an opinion, she’s disappointed in me for being in favor of LGBT+ rights, she believes it’ always black people committing crimes, always Muslims committing acts of terrorism, and it’s always white people being punished for racism even though reverse racism is just as bad~“`!!111!1!

She was born in a time when all of those things were believed to be true. Even the term you used, reverse racism, is born from the idea that racism is only described as white people hating POC. Racism was so common back then (even among people who thought it was wrong) that it’s shaped the way people think today.

There’s still no excuse. If someone the same age as her, or older, raised in the same area in the same way, or someone raised by her can change, can be accepting and not as hateful as she is, she has no excuse for her shit.
My own grandmother tells me I’m too young and too liberal to have a political opinion while my coworker, older than her, tells me I’m like a granddaughter to her and is more supportive of me and the things I believe in. There is no excuse.
My mother and cousin were raised by these people, my entire family except for them and myself are like this and I wonder how that happened? Because I was raised to believe homosexuality was a sin, I was raised to believe that POC were violent and irrational. 
Oh wait. It’s because I don’t have a stick up my ass like she does.
There are only certain types of people who cannot change their minds and the way they think about others, and that’s people who don’t want to. And there is no excuse for that.

I wasn’t excusing it, simply providing a reason. When people grow old, they become set in their ways and have trouble seeing differently. They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Obviously you can, but it’s much more difficult.

Yeah.
But in the meantime, I can still be angry. I can still be hurt, and I can still be annoyed.
I am allowed to be as fed-up with her shit as I like.
Even though I know it’s hard for her to change, it doesn’t change the fact that it hurts that she can’t change for me, her granddaughter, when other people can.

You have every right to be upset with her. You don’t have to have her as a part of your life if she makes you feel this way all the time. Just because she’s family doesn’t mean you have to love her.

Okay well I’m pretty sure I know that most cops are good people. That doesn’t change the fact that the bad ones are getting away with murder. My point was not that “white cops are bad because white cops”, it was “murder is usually excused because white cop”.
Which is usually what anyone means when they’re talking about an oppressive group, at least to my understanding???
And I’m not actually going to strangle my grandmother, I’m just frustrated because she tells me I’m too liberal to have an opinion, she’s disappointed in me for being in favor of LGBT+ rights, she believes it’ always black people committing crimes, always Muslims committing acts of terrorism, and it’s always white people being punished for racism even though reverse racism is just as bad~“`!!111!1!

She was born in a time when all of those things were believed to be true. Even the term you used, reverse racism, is born from the idea that racism is only described as white people hating POC. Racism was so common back then (even among people who thought it was wrong) that it’s shaped the way people think today.

There’s still no excuse. If someone the same age as her, or older, raised in the same area in the same way, or someone raised by her can change, can be accepting and not as hateful as she is, she has no excuse for her shit.
My own grandmother tells me I’m too young and too liberal to have a political opinion while my coworker, older than her, tells me I’m like a granddaughter to her and is more supportive of me and the things I believe in. There is no excuse.
My mother and cousin were raised by these people, my entire family except for them and myself are like this and I wonder how that happened? Because I was raised to believe homosexuality was a sin, I was raised to believe that POC were violent and irrational. 
Oh wait. It’s because I don’t have a stick up my ass like she does.
There are only certain types of people who cannot change their minds and the way they think about others, and that’s people who don’t want to. And there is no excuse for that.

I wasn’t excusing it, simply providing a reason. When people grow old, they become set in their ways and have trouble seeing differently. They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. Obviously you can, but it’s much more difficult.

Yeah.
But in the meantime, I can still be angry. I can still be hurt, and I can still be annoyed.
I am allowed to be as fed-up with her shit as I like.
Even though I know it’s hard for her to change, it doesn’t change the fact that it hurts that she can’t change for me, her granddaughter, when other people can.

You have every right to be upset with her. You don’t have to have her as a part of your life if she makes you feel this way all the time. Just because she’s family doesn’t mean you have to love her.

but it’s not about race right?


Woah

This is the master post of the new millennium showcasing racism and white supremacy at its finest.
Please stop telling us it’s not about race and to move on cause IT IS and WE WONT until justice is served and equality is established!

My grandmother made a comment that she would “hate to be a white cop” because “white cops don’t get away with anything, everything has to be about race with these people”.
This was in a conversation about Darren Wilson and Michael Brown.
I want to strangle my grandmother half the time I swear to god.

I certainly don’t condone strangling your grandmother. She is obviously wrong because white cops do get away with quite a lot. She is right that everything is made to be a race issue when it comes to crimes committed by white cops against black people. It is not always. I wont say it never is, or even that it is not in most cases. Racism is definitely an issue. But white cops are not the only issue. They are not bad simply because they are white and cops. Most cops are good people. These are the acts of individuals, not white people, and not cops. 

Okay well I’m pretty sure I know that most cops are good people. That doesn’t change the fact that the bad ones are getting away with murder. My point was not that “white cops are bad because white cops”, it was “murder is usually excused because white cop”.
