    Games that give the option of inverting the Y axis but not the X axis. Why would you not think somebody who wants one might not want the other? For those of use who find it useful, the basic idea is you're controlling the point-of-view the way you control a TV camera - you're moving a stick on the back of the device you're rotating (which, if you're using a gamepad, matches up very well). Having that only work in one axis is fucked.

    I think Anne Boleyn's ghost would disagree with you. Despite having had time to learn better.

    Rittenhouse's current lawyer claimed that the footage they showed on Tucker Carlson was compressed in black and white and the prosecution just showed the judge a clip of the show which clearly shows it was uncompressed and in colour

    Very Trumpian. The black-and-white story is now a MAGA fact, the clip with the colour version is now fake news.

    Some conspiracy theorists say Jones is an obvious government stooge, paid to put on a performance so outrageous and obviously stupid that it discredits all of them.

    Never seems to occur to them that his existence and popularity in their space should make them question the validity of their ideas. But this kind of self-defence of irrational beliefs pales compared to the Qanon nutters, so it's not even surprising any more.

    You mean they're doing a Trump and predicting the result they don't want as some kind of "evidence" that it's fixed?

    I don't think anyone would ever consider WW1 glorious.

    You what? A fair number of people thought it was at the time and even afterwards, as the reality of the slaughter became more widely understood today. Not hard to find people who still think it glorious.

    Scientology is a rather more modern example of the creation of a malignant cult.

    Took me a while!

    Really? I think 99% of the forum regulars would go straight there and might even have to work backwards to arrive at "Air Gun". Or is that what you meant?

    Who could ever forget him on Give Us A Clue, the opposing team captain Una Stubbs sitting open mouthed as he tried to pull off 12 angry men in under two minutes.
