Is this loss?: 88% 9:31 AM rainnecassidy If you're old enough to remember it, you just lost The Game. raggedyanndy proncus I have no idea what's going on here witchaj Back in the early aughts, when many mil- lenials were in high school, before Facebook and Youtube, The Game began. No one knows who started it, but the moment we learned we were playing it, we began to lose. The goal of The Game is to forget you are playing The Game for as long as possible. The rules The Game are as follows: Everyone is ays playing The Game all the time; at school, during breakfast, at night when you are asleep, etc. The Game never ends. The moment you remember that you are playing The Game, you lose and must immediately announce to those around you, "I just lost The Game!" thus making them remember they are also playing The Game and causing them to lose as well. Upon losing, you begin The Game again. Sometimes players could go weeks or months without losing, sometimes only minutes. At the height of The Game's popularity, it became common to see people at events such as Comic Con or midnight movie premieres, wearing t-shirts proclaiming You just lost The Game!" Once they were noticed, groans and shouts of "Fuck you!" could be heard for miles. These people rived on the chaos, taking great pleasure in the cries of their victims. Most people eventually grew bored of The Game, and many began to claim they won by choosing not to care about it anymore. Some rely on a particular XKCD comic strip or Tumblr post to lend a sense of legitimacy to their feeli of victory. They are fools. It is impossible to win The Game. There is only losing. Only a few diehards remain loyal to the rules. The drop in popularity has allowed many to keep m losing The Game for years at a time. The growth of social media has caused a minor resurgence, although without the satisfaction of real time auditory feedback when caus others to lose, The Game will likely fade back into obscurity once again. Someday whern we are old and gray, our grandchildren will innocently ask us to play a game of checkers, and we will shriek and shout until the whole nursing home joins us in defeat. Death is the only release from The Game Source: rainnecassidy #101 #goshi remember this #but also Is this loss?

keplercryptids: Image description: a series of tweets by @.JDstarblaster (me!) that say: We’ve gotten over 1,000 signatures in 3 days, which goes to show how much @.MaxFunHQ fans care about accessibility. What I hope to do now is highlight some of the comments on the petition, which are meaningful and speak power to the importance of accessibility. I want to make it clear, to @.JesseThorn and the folks at @.MaxFunHQ that this petition was never meant as an attack. The signatures have come almost entirely from FANS, often ones who donate, and frequently ones who are disabled. So many folks from all over the world are engaging on this topic, and I hope that’s meaningful to @.MaxFunHQ. I want to amplify the voices of the community, especially the disabled members of the community, to show how important this issue really is. (the rest of the tweets are tweeted at Maxfun and Jesse, and are in quotes.) “I have audio processing issues and transcripts of podcasts are really valuable to me! I would probably listen to more shows on MaxFun or consider becoming a member if the content was more accessible to people like me. Thank you for your consideration.” “While I am not hearing impaired, neurodivergent, etc., I AM a monthly donor to the MaxFun network, and I would consider making these shows more accesible a worthwhile use of my donations.” “I’m hard of hearing, and I rely on transcripts of my favorite podcasts to help me make sure I don’t miss anything. Accessibility shouldn’t have to be solely in the hands of disabled people.” “I have auditory processing problems and reading the transcript while listening to the podcast will avoid me missing any information.” “I was thinking of maybe becoming a monthly donor of Max Fun this year, but now I’m certainly not. Not being fully aware of an accessibility issue is one thing, having it brought to your attention and deciding you’d rather actively deny disabled people access to your content is a whole ‘nother. I’m very lucky that despite having hearing issues, they generally don’t inhibit me from being able to enjoy podcasts and like media, but there are plenty of people who just don’t have the option of enjoying podcasts in the conventional way. I want to be able to support my favourite content creators, but I can’t do that if they don’t support me and my friends in this extremely basic way.” i’m still adding to the thread! check it out on twitter if you want : JDstarblaster We've gotten over 1,000 signatures in 3 days, which goes to show how much @MaxFunHQ fans care about accessibility.
