Someone should make a video game that's about baseball score-keeping.
The player doesn't control the players, they just play a character sitting in the cheap seats scribbling in a little book.
Maybe it's an iPad game.
@jackdaw_ruiz Then we must find the strangest-tasting gourd of them all, determine what spices would be needed to make it edible, and instead use those spices to flavor our coffee.
(This would also bolster Baseball's tradition of having weird rules that only make sense compared to whatever crazy rule preceded them.)
The ultimate goal isn't to get peak performance out of the athletes, it's to create an interesting and entertaining game.
@mal At least the idea that she should be traded as a commodity was socialized into her. She certainly wasn't born thinking she should belong to an important politician.
I thought the idea that her personality shifted to match the man she was with and then crystallized when she reached a certain age was supposed to be biological. (Hence her parting shot about Shakespeare. )
@tparadox I'd forgotten that. It's been a long time since I read the book.

Has Talk Like A Pirate Day circled back around to being cool again?
@Tel Hasbro has been doing some really mean spirited sarcastic Monopoly games to own the libs. Is this one of them?
@Tel A pregnant human is a 3d printer.
All the major voice assistants have minimum wage people reviewing and correcting the voice-recognition.
Real humans listen to miss-understood inputs.
... so, could we use this as a channel to reach those minimum wage digital sweat-shop workers?
Perhaps we should all play Alexa looped tapes of pro-union propaganda?
@Red They should use faces from those neural network face generators.
@mal That's actually how they celebrate Halloween on DS9.
11foot8.com is the world's greatest reality show.
@aparrish Does the protagonist have some kind of weird thing strapped to their left arm?
Video game protagonists need a thing on their left arm.
I don't understand the point of slippers.
Except the ones that look like funny animals. I guess I understand those.
