@spacepenguin: I'm aware of the status of the languages and it's a grand thing to be displacing a silly misconception, but I don't see the merit in simply replacing it with another one. Saying that Mac/Mc is not Irish is just as blatantly incorrect as saying only one is Irish and one is Scottish. It's not even a good rule of thumb.

@spacepenguin: Mac is the Irish for 'son', so you can indeed find it in many native Irish names, along with it's abbreviated variant.

In short: Both Mac and Mc can be either Irish or Scottish. Ó will always be Irish.

It'd be nice if all the software I used was available on Linux. Until then...

I have lots of Steam games I will probably never play.

Bacteria spends all night breeding in your mouth. Swallowing it before you take a toothbrush to your mouth seems counterproductive to the very idea of brushing at all.

Took me a while to figure out just what the fuck Mount and Blade was. Shortly thereafter, it was affecting my health.

@jerseyscum: I can attest to the fact that this is an accurate portrayal of the North in the 1990s, right down to the 4 sole inhabitants and their quasi-Irish/Jamaican accents. I'm not sure why you'd have a problem with it.

When I play Risk with friends, we set the Wilhelm scream to play every time a unit dies.

It Never. Gets. Old.

@blu3v3nom07: Personally, I live in America and xbox one could launch with all that functionality in one territory. As long it's mine, I'm fine. Yeah, if it was something that actually affected me in some way, it would be worth getting worked up about. People who take the time on the Internet to mock a company or product because of decisions that have zero impact on them are a waste of space.

And what does that make you, considering you've just taken the time on the internet to bitch about something that has zero impact on you?
