Last night I reblogged a video made by NASA that had GLaDOS from Portal teach you the difference between Fusion and Fission and I watched it again today (because its awesome and you should really watch it) and noticed this. In portal she is “Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System”
If you include the line just above the acronym that translates to GLaDOS, you’d get NOTGLaDOS. A really cute (and clever) way to bypass the copyright issues around the name.
i actually had this conversation today
That’s it, WE CAN ALL GO HOME NOW. There won’t ever be a better graphic that summarizes sexist double standards in today’s geek culture.
THIS IS OUR CULTURE IN A NUTSHELL.
I’ve been on both sides of this conversation

LESBIAN TALK - Episode #54: LARP & Order
This week, your fancily-dressed hosts The Omega Geek and Diamanda Hagan are joined by fellow reviewer, seasoned top hat podium, and LARP veteran Derek The Bard. And that is very fortunate, as this episode is indeed all about the art and joy of dressing up in costumes, assuming a character of one’s own design and performing within confines set by incredibly expensive rulebooks.
Learn about the different philosophies of play, why not to play an asshole in the middle of depression, locations ranging from the classic parents’ basement over ballrooms over campuses over car parks to post-apocalyptic bits of the UK, and the time that Derek tore out Omega’s intestines to have a good look at them.
Another thing that they discuss together is the LARPiest of reviewer-created microbudget movies: Nerd Quest.
What worked about the movie? What didn’t ? How does it relate to actual LARPs and how do actual players feel about it? What narrative tricks were employed and what kind of super-exclusive information can be gained from the commentary track? And where is Hagan in the movie, anyway?
For this week’s music break, Marcus “Quicksilver” Reeves returns with an enthralling tune called “Behind the Mask”, which is amongst those works which can be bought at this link.
And and at this point it is worth pointing out that friend of the show Tony Goldmark has recently released his latest Album, Goldmark After Dark, which is definitely worth a purchase, as well.
Then, draculobster Giovanni Jones reveals a forgotten fact about the world’s most famous trashcan inhabitant which bears unfortunate implications in hellish and terrifying parts of the modern world.
And finally, in One Time At The Store shares two how-not-to tales about parenting and vomit.
All this,Harry Russo haunting your nightmares, and more on this week’s Lesbian Talk!
So recently lots of the female producers at TGWTG have been getting threatened by a shitwit what thinks threats of rape and murder are the height of wit. I’m sure if Oscar Wilde were alive today, he’d chuck all that wordplay and nimble speech for a quick tweet about violating someone’s pets.
