People call me fat all the time. It's true. And I take no offense in it.

I occasionally stick BBC news on the TV, but not super regularly. More often I'll see it via the BBC news website or android app. Anything else I see is generally something pointed out by Twitter or Reddit or even on the Giant Bomb forums. I might pick up a newspaper if I'm in the pub and there is one on the bar, but I'd never buy a newspaper.

EDIT: Oh, and I'm 24 and Male.

@mb: Wait, why would you get a top hat from a haberdashery? A haberdasher sells sewing equipment like needles, thread and buttons.

In American English a "haberdasher" is a custom or clothing outfitter for men:

Speak Proper English Communist Panda!

You damn Americans even get a simple word like Haberdasher right. How do you expect us to take you seriously when you don't even know what a haberdasher is?

Wasn't that game called Sid Meiyers Alpha Centauri about 10 years ago?

Yeah, this is essentially Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri 2. I believe EA own the rights to the Alpha Centauri franchise, though, so they couldn't use that name because Firaxis is a 2K house now.

I'm going to change my lastpass password and that's about it. I have most important things set up with two-tier authentication, so no one can access stuff like my email and paypal even if they have access to my passwords. Most other things aren't that important. As long as my emails and payment information is safe, I'm happy.

Do those rules change if drinks are involved?

All rules change when drinks are involved.

I have a very dark sense of humour and I can find extremely offensive jokes funny. But you have to know your audience. You tell the jokes to people who aren't going to take offense. Telling a joke with potential racist connotations on twitter was never a smart move. With added context, and on a late-night satire show, the joke would have blended in seamlessly and there would have been no issues. On twitter, with little context and the potential to be viewed by a much wider audience, it was a terrible idea to post it.
