Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.

To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:

Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?

Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.

And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!

On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.”

I about pissed myself laughing at this.

Being seconds from finally falling asleep and realizing your bowels are about to empty like you’ve been chugging laxatives all day.

How weird is it that
only in the last few years
suddenly, its commonplace
that faces in a mirror
held at queer angles
from a mechanical eye
remind
that the past is never gone
and the future is always passing
but what never leaves
is self
call it something cutsie
hastag it
Make sure each other
selfie goes unnoticed
beyond your own
swaggin like hipster
dragging our dirty ironic tees
through the streets
some of their names preceed “.Ave” “.Rd”
But i,
if i can ask why
do we need to feel anothers arms
even if theyre a fucking gif
why do these shitty stupid pixels
drag chemicals from my brain
like experience ought
why do i sit content
that i work in a few hundred minutes
and i havent gone to bed
knowing that
whenever it happens,
and im good and dead
at least these words were sober
as sober as sober claims to be
when its over
and im stoned on the internet
just before the flash
that incinerates humanity
consumes conceivably everything
compounded contestants
by chaos and chance
in a silly game
instilled in generations
of still little children
scared of what they dont know
i know nothing
but if existence is so
fragile
how can empty concepts and screens
Be so fucking tactile

Depending on where you’re born, cooking dinner, having sex and going to the bathroom are either three of life’s many pleasures - or three of the riskiest things you can do.

Science.

I can’t tell what my favorite part is, but it’s either
scientists wasting budget and time to see if ants count their steps
the idea to put ants on stilts
there had to be a guy who made ant stilts and put them on the ants
confused ants

You ever look at people and think

"Wow you seem so happy with such a simple life"

I can’t help but feel like if I made the right decisions in life I’d still be straight edge, I’d be in college, I’d drive a decent vehicle, I’d be in a different state or at least a different town.

But at the same time who I’d be in my personality, my life views, my actions, could have been astronomically different. And not by any means better. In fact, I feel like I am more appreciative of who I am now and how much I’ve grown to learn, far more than I would otherwise.

I feel like I’m not depressed or anxious because I’ve made a series of bad decisions.

Life is odd
