I have many bullets to spare. At the risk of sounding insensitive, that is my gamer’s impression of the Chinese military, care of Electronic Arts. Which I guess is why China’s Ministry of Culture recently banned Battlefield 4 –clueless westerners might think the game is actually real. But here’s the specific reason given by China:
“Battlefield 4 is an illegal video game, with content that endangers national security. It is an aggressive attack on our culture.”
Now, the idea that a video game could endanger national security is laughable. Clearly, this statement needs fleshing out.

It’s December and everyone’s doing lists, lists, lists of things they totals liked very much a lot this year. Yes it is that time. It’s a horrible time, and ruins Christmas for me every year. “This game was awesome.” “No this game was more awesome.” “I challenge you to a virginal neckbeard fight because our opinions differ!” “OK but be careful with my thin aristocratic wrists.” And so on and so forth.
By and quite large, I think all these dumb lists miss the point. In their rushes to personally quantify fun, mayhap they bogart the ties that bind us all in mutual admiration: The moments.
