    The problem will take care of itself. When unemployment is the norm, the economy will domino effect to a fall.

    When people can't afford food, they absolutely will become murdering thieves. Morality and ethics eat shit when you're watching your family starve to death. I guarantee that. Anyone trying to stay moral is going to die, so really it's a matter of survival instinct.

    When food isn't being sold, farmers go bankrupt. Tractor industries go under.

    If no one commutes to work, no one buys fuel. Oil companies go under.

    If no one can afford to heat their homes, natural gas goes belly up.

    No oil/NG/coal == no industry of any kind, period. No medicine, no iPhones, no steel, no manufacturing, no food, no water, no infrastructure, no entertainment, no nothing.

    I don't think I need to mention what probably happens next as everyone's scrambling to stay alive.

    And no, we can't just hand out money to everyone. Because then you've essentially negated the value of money (since it's so easy to acquire), and it simply won't be recognized as an asset worth trading services/products for. People will just start trading in gold or food or whatever else that may have practical value. And then we're back to square one.

    Re-educate, Re-train, Re-deploy to an off-world colony.

    What's that? We don't have any...

    Well, that would be because we are still fighting among ourselves.
    Mostly over who's made up book of ghost stories is more believable.

    Only when we see ourselves as all equal citizens of Earth, rather than divided by country/colour & traditions, only then will we move forward.

    Apologies, that's more answer than you asked for. Feeling a bit dark at the mo'.

    Every robot used to be one human working in a small bookstore.

    We need to start thinking hard what we want to do about unemployment. Because this is how it is created. Unemployment will become the norm, there is no way around it.

    So what to do with all the unemployed people?

    I couldn't add reputation points, I have to spread them out more. But I definitely approved this message, and you just gotta realize there is no you & us , its just us bro

    Know that I'm still cool with you,gonna take waaaay more than what we've been through to reach that level. Everyone does something irritating at some times, the other night r00k straight up out of no where called me a ******, with no ha-ha involvement,then his phone died and I didn't get that 'let me know you're home safe' text message response I wanted, lol. Shit happens, getting through it matters.

    ps ; he was at the bar having a drink,I knew that much and he all of a sudden quit chatting,didn't even remember talking shit last night til he fired up his phone the next day and was like wtf?

    well I'm doing good with not being a troll and posting things unrelated to quake but I want to address this geek thing.

    @mindz - no offense was actually taken it's just incredibly inaccurate. There are also no jokes on anyone. I came here to learn how to build games and I stayed here cause I like all the people.

    @y'all are the geeks - well, I'm actually embarassed that I said that and I apologize to anyone that was offended. I don't have any excuses or explanations.

    Baker,

    I disagree on your assertion that the common man is a thieving lizard. You will find criminals in all tiers of society.

    Not sure what else to say about this.

    Sure you're a geek, you taking offense to it is the larger problem
    I don't know why you would be so harsh to (y)our community. The moment you started posting here, you joined the ranks of "slobbering over some 18 year old game." players....

    If you didn't join our community to be apart of it then you joined to basically point/laugh/own personal amusements, and the jokes been on us for some time now..

    But we all know thats bullshit, you're a welcome member to these forums,whether or not you're sincere about us as a community on your end of the viewing spectrum has left to be seen. I like to think our interactions have value,including any future ones.

    I wasn't out right calling you a geek you damn nerd.

    I was just stating the terminology used here reminds me of geek vs geek, championship of who can out word another.

    I know you are not a geek Michael, I have spoken with you on the phone.
    You sound more like a serial killer then a geek, but that's besides the point.

    All in all, I love you as if you were my long lost red headed step child who got beat for just waking up.

    And what game would you be refering to?

    Resident Evil? Super Mario64? Daggerfall? Tombraider?
    Diablo?

    You mean Diablo right? It was great, dark, evil world. People still play it to this very day.

    I might go play it now.
