I sincerely hope you’ll do the honourable thing to make an example of this gallbladder after its’ exile by branding it with the JimQ logo, dipping it it liquid silver to set, rebranding the outside with a more detailed logo, then laminate it and position it next to the stuffed corpse of DigiHom with a sign that reads ‘Wary upon all ye who bring scorn into thine abode. For thou suffering will be severe ‘n eternal!’

Chris

Easy. First, only release the first half of the video. Then announce that the rest is only available if we pre-order the Jimquisition Season Pass through the website or from Gamestop. But make sure you throw a few cosmetics in so people will say it’s worth it. Then, you make it so we can’t view the whole video without stopping every few minutes to take random junk we’ve got laying around and craft a new ‘play’ button as they break every few minutes (Laura will assure us that this isn’t a problem at all though).

To be fair I’ve “heard” “reports” that gall bladder illnesses, like back injuries, are exacerbated and even sometimes directly caused by use of heavy VR equipment and nausea inducing games – apparently repeatedly resisting the urge to puke while eyerolling at weak jumpscares leads to heamorroidal revengeances forming in the gall bladder and meningus of the spine, which can lead to phantom pains and bad working conditions.

Jim should do his health a big favor by finding a close friend, someone who’s always been there when he’s needed him, and giving his VR to that friend.

The problem is that Jim has been using his VR irresponsibly. Hopefully he has a friend, or maybe a podcast co-host, who we know would be better equipped to handle it properly and could keep poor Jim from ever hurting himself again.

It’s called hyperpalatable foods – highly processed foods (foods with various “preservatives” and artificial sweeteners) are chemically designed with lack of raw nutritional value and a bio-chemical trigger to make them stimulate dopamine production. Compared to fresh organic foods they have no real flavor or nutrition, but the dopamine trigger and lack of nutritional value combine to give its victims two reasons to want to consume more and more. The first lure is the sheer convenience of not having to prepare your own food, and it’s all downhill from there.

Just cause people like bottled sauce does not necessarily mean they have low standards, some people just simply cannot afford to make sauce from scratch, so they have to settle for the store bought stuff.

It’s not expensive, but it can be messy &, if you don;t know the recipes by heart, time consuming. Boiling tomato sauce bubbles manage to spit on every corner of the stove top once the lid is removed.

How expensive do you think making tomato sauce is?

Not just a matter of money, it’s a matter of time as well. Many poorer families don’t have time to make home-cooked meals, so they have to settle for eating out.

drownedsummer
Member
drownedsummer

Isn’t that somewhat contradictory? Making home-cooked meals would be far cheaper than eating out for every meal. As George points out time management is a factor here and it is potentially possible to devote time to making a batch of meals and then freezing then. It doesn’t have to be complicated or using anything expensive.

Have you ever worked a manual labor job in the summer heat only to come home to demanding kids? The people I know who do that can barely walk thanks to stress and exhaustion, much less cook a meal. Time management isn’t the issue, being worked very hard for little pay is.

George

That’s not true. It’s just poor time management. roasting the tomatoes first in the oven and then puree them with garlic and dried oregano is cheep and takes maybe 45 minutes. Sure the sauce won’t be “super tasty sit down meal party quality” but for day to day eating would be great.

The kind of family they are referencing can’t afford the tomatoes and may not even have ovens. Given a choice between $3/lb fresh veggies and $1/jar prepared sauce the choice is obvious. That’s three meals for the same price as one (two if you skimp on the amount of sauce). Same for “Value Menus”. A whole meal for $4 versus making your own hamburgers and fries (no drink) which cost upwards of $10 or more. The economics of being poor are probably more fucked than the economics of scale the stock brokers and CEOs are using. Being low income sucks… Read more »

That math doesn’t make sense though, it’s a trick of advertising. The canned sauce is not necessary in terms of survival since it has no nutritional value. So, by not buying it that’s a dollar saved. Then by never eating out those 4 dollars per person for a 4 person family is also saved since fast foods are not needed either. 17$ American can buy a lot of food. 5.5lbs of vegetables is a lot of food. Or rather a large bag of beans if you really want to save. And even with a difficult job and stressed out they… Read more »

I’ve responded to you already but I’ll respond here too. Actually your words are what;s wrong with how we talk about poverty and health as well.

It comes from a culture of entitlement. Not all choices have equal merit and many when measured in terms of objective measures like time and money spent are just bad or wrong. If a person is uneducated about time management or financial literacy they will make bad choices.

People do have to take responsibility for their bad choices it’s established therapeutic practice.

When you are poor, stressed, and desperate just to eat you don’t think long-term. You live day-to-day in most cases. Eating is enough by itself, eating healthy is a matter of luck that the things which are healthy are on sale for less than the mass-produced pseudo-food. You don’t look at costs over a month or even a week. You look at costs right then, and whether or not you can get by until your next paycheck and have the money for the checkout counter. You make bad financial decisions because the orchestrated consequences delay real consequences. It’s easy to… Read more »

The point I was making about “good decisions are a luxury” went over your head. It takes very little time to eat a microwaved meal. Most things we cook take about 5 minutes at the most, and we don’t buy “whole family” meals ever since our oven broke 2 years ago. We can boil water at the same time we heat sauce, and it takes about 12 minutes total from jar to plate on the days we decide to eat as a family unit.

Why it’s almost like poverty has far more to do with where you live and the situation you are born into a lot of the time and with structural problems with capitalism than with easy to diagnose problems with a particular person that makes them to blame for all the things wrong with their situation.

That can’t be true though, it must be that they are too lazy and stupid to write down a schedule and realize that will fix everything about their life.

El Chica Incognitus

I think they realistically add sugar because it’s a product and not really a food. It’s something that’s going to be sitting in a warehouse or store self for a looong fucking time unfrozen and unrefrigerated so it’s not made from fresh ingredients that would spoil but a variety of byproducts of ingredients and processed chemicals. The sweetness in a real sauce comes from the basil used to make it, and that just won’t last on a store shelf so sugar is the fastest, cheapest and dumbest way to substitute that.

I’ve been listening to Podcastle recently which I believe is the earliest podcast Jim has done almost a decade ago back when he was still in the UK. It is fascinating listening to it and hearing Jim making points he is still making now and realising how little things have really changed in ten years or at least certainly not changed for the better.

Fairly sure we’ve discussed it before. Although I hadn’t listened to much of it then. Yes, there is discussion of gaming news although obviously, it is no longer topical. The split however is fairly even in terms of gaming news and more cruder material. It definetly isn’t a pure gaming news podcast. It is also Jim way before any influence of having lived in America and long before he began moderating himself in terms of certain language. Episode 11 is interesting to listen to as the majority of the episode is Jim interviewing Jack Thompson after GTA IV was released.
