    I really enjoy these noclip documentaries, the one on CD projeckt was excellent, and they are still interesting even if you don't care about the games being talked about.

    Near the start of the year I gave up fizzy juice and pretty much everything but water. It really sucked for about 2 days I had these awful headaches and it took nearly a week for the cravings to go away (sugar is a harsh mistress) but it does go away.

    My advice is just to go cold turkey, if you have a weekend to yourself that should make it easier and make sure to drink lots of water the entire time. Get a decent water bottle and just use it all the time, take it everywhere it's feasible to take it. The thing to remember is it's still okay to have it once in a while and it will just be the rare treat it's supposed to be, treat it like you would alcohol it's nice once in a while but you wouldn't pick up a beer on the way to work so ignore the coke the same way.

    It's quite expensive for what it is so I don't use it often, I'm still on the same tub that I bought at the start of the year but if you do have a taste for it oh it would be so easy to over use.

    I actually don't, what I do instead is mash one of the tins of beans and then chop up some mushrooms quite small and that seems to do the trick along with a bit of nutritional yeast to emulate the fat that would have come from the mince. It's basically a glorified super hot rice and beans.

    I tend to avoid most meat replacements as I don't find them to be nearly as good as the meat was or just more veg is. But then I'm a newbie to veganism maybe a couple of years down the line I'll have a real craving.

    Indeed, it just feels like an extra step, when you get jaded after years of doing it you sort of forget the very few who reform their ways and just assume everyone is going to be an arse.

    I've been preparing to make a pot of insane vegan chili all week. So my plan is to go home after work, have some... other plants I enjoy and cook for about 2 hours before stuffing my face and binging on either the weeks Dota I've missed or The Expanse series 3. End of the day couldn't come soon enough.

    Had my eye on Deep Sky Derelicts for a while, it looks similar to Darkest Dungeon and I absolutely adored that game.

    If this happens please make it optional, one thing I love about the site now is how simple and clean it is and lots of colour markers or text will look awful.

    Maybe color-coding each group could be something to try? Then you could quickly get a feeling for which groups you prefer more or less.

    In my experience on reddit if you give someone a temp ban there's a good chance that as soon as the ban has expired they will come back and wallpaper the comments sections of various posts with even more nonsense. They tend to double down on the behaviour that got them banned, it will be different here at the minute because invites are required.

    About once a month when I get a weekend to myself I love to make veggie chili. I make it ridiculously hot, usually using whatever the hottest chillies in the shop are but often I've been able to get hold of carolina reapers or something equally insane for a treat. I make a giant pot of it that keeps me going all weekend.

    I'm looking forward to tomorrow night, I've a big bag of really fruity scotch bonnets sitting in the kitchen that are going to be delightful in a batch. I'd post the recipe but I'm fairly sure my masochistic love of extreme heat would probably damage a normal human.

    I'm definitely in favour of a submission statement I posted a song in ~music and I looked at it for a second before feeling the need to write something otherwise what do people really say to it? That said what often happens on truereddit is that people just lazily post the first paragraph or the link summary rather than anything of value.

    So I would even go further and say that we shouldn't even have plain "link submission" here but I know that it's a rather extreme stance.

    Is it extreme? I don't think it should be mandatory per say but I'd definitely like the option to post a link and then have space under it to say either why I'm posting it or what could be interesting about it.

    Well I for one agree with you. Sorry couldn't resist.

    There's nothing wrong with using the phrase, it just reads like someone trying to pad out an essay for school.

    I think that's exactly where it comes from, I vaguely remember using it as a trick to make a sentence take up a paragraph to increase word count. Now I always have to reread my posts to make sure I'm not still doing it subconsciously.

    I'm in two minds about it, I like that it's much more open and not restricted by American prudishness but at the same time a totally hands off approach... I just can't see it leading anywhere apart from the sewer eventually. I don't even look for new games on Steam anymore since I agree it's just full of utter dross.

    We could maybe have a thread for each tournament rather than games? So we could have the Supermajor thread and maybe a TI quals then TI one too.

    I'm EU so most Chinese Lans pass me by until the finals on the weekend. I'm going to spend much of Friday night catching up on the best games so far. I did see the Mineski Vici game1 that was a tense back and forth.

    Any other games I should be looking for vods of?

    I see marriage as a civil legal union which has nothing to do with either organised religion or the government. If gay people want to get married they should have that right the same as straight people, absolutely no question. Any consenting person over the age of 16 and of sound mind should be able to marry whomever they wish because quite frankly it's none of my business anyway. It's legal in my country and even has some religious approval, our society has changed a great deal in the last 20 years.

    I think it would be best to format this type of threads more in a r/changemyview format. As in: "I believe this is true for this and that reason", so that arguments are discussed instead of general ideas and feelings.

    Completely agree, CMV just needed a bit more moderation and it would have been fantastic, it can still be a good place for discussion as you actually get to tease out more of the reasons why people feel the way they do rather than just simply state the feeling.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Veganism#Coining_the_term_vegan_(1944)

    I'm sure PBD will get a catchier name at some point, vegan was basically made to replace 'non dairy vegetarian' a similar mouthful.
