<bassgoon> Did you ever hear the tragedy of Half-Life the Third? I thought not. It's not a story Valve would tell you. It's a PC gaming legend. Half-Life was a first person shooter, so popular and so profitable it could use the engine to influence the modders to create new games... It had such a fanbase that it could even keep other titles they cared about from dying. The profitability was a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.

<hppavilion1> I just had an idea
<hppavilion1> Form a political party called "The Obstructionist Party", the only purpose of which is to stall government as much as possible; in places where the main issue with government is that one party has too much power, the Obstructionist Party aims to gain *just* enough seats so that nobody has a majority, thus forcing the major parties to cooperate to get anything done (obviously, here in 'murica, that doesn't help since Republicans can't get
<hppavilion1> anything done even when they have control of the House, Senate, and other House)
<hppavilion1> So it only works when your government is competent
