The hardest boss in Elden Ring? It must be the damn jumping puzzle to reach the Frenzied Flame. Died more times there than when fighting Malenia.

Dude, where’s my jetpack?

I’m living in the SF world of my younger years - unfortunately, it’s the world of John Shirley’s A Song Called Youth. European war waged between the Soviets and a fundamentalist Christian PMC who are planning a biological genocide. US population oppressed by “CIA Domestic”.

My first guess about who blew up the Nordstream pipelines in the Baltic would be Russian military hardliners who want to force Putin to go all in with a conflict with NATO.

However this Twitter thread seems to imply that Russia doesn’t really have this kind of sabotage capability in the Baltic:

Tankies on HN and Twitter are of course blaming the US for covertly destroying any hopes that Germany would reach an accord with Russia during a harsh winter (German elites are of course complicit). Naturally Russia being the real culprit works in this scenario too.

Update 2022-09-28: This is an interesting thread

Update 2022-09-29: and here’s another one

After 2 years, 6 months and 15 days since the first reported death to Covid in Sweden we have finally(?) got it.

It’s not too bad for me but my wife says it’s the worst she’s ever felt and she’s famously uncomplaining.

An account with the handle “@LoliWifeGroomer” helped spread false rumors about a coup in China:

Creating the Innocent Killer: Ender’s Game, Intention, and Morality

I’ve never read more than a few chapters of a Card novel and now I feel entirely justified.

Someday aliens are going to land their saucers in a field somewhere in New Jersey and everything is going to go just fine right up until we try to explain our calendar to them

Good Twitter thread about Admiral Thomas Cochrane, who inspired Patrick O’Brian’s Jack Aubrey.

Finished Elden Ring.

I feel a bit empty.

The police on Iceland (Lögreglan) reports they have arrested four people on suspicion of terrorism:

It’s been slowly filtering out in international media, but no mention of it on HN yet, which tells me it’s Nazis.

Hilary Mantel RIP

So sad to hear this.

I’m seriously having more trouble with the damn Kindred of Rot in the lower levels of Elphael than I did with Malenia.

Nerds be like “huh this software looks pretty meh… wait the developer got kicked out from another project for being a giant dick??? OMG this is my new fav soft!!!!”

Put away Placidusax, Mogh and Hoarah Loux. My, my Mimic, and the Blasphemous Blade make a great team.

Also I might be a teeny bit overleveled.

Two bosses to go.

Putin’s vision: 300,000 soldiers marching with gleaming bayonets to the front.

Reality: 300,000 plane tickets out of Russia.

Feeling bad about not taking photos anymore.

Missed the email from Steam telling me I could purchase the Steamdeck so it went to someone else. Lucky bastard.

Min förutspåelse för en kommande regering: M bildar tillsammans med KD. SD släpper igenom den tillsammans med Liberalerna. Dom får avsevärda krav tillgodosedda - minskad asylmottagning mm., men kommer inte sitta i ansvarig ställning när Sverige drabbas av lågkonjunktur. Nästa val går dom framåt ännu mer för att “politikerna kan inte genomföra något”. Win-win för dom bruna.
