EDIT: Nice speech, Mr. President, silly jokes about fish and all~. He talks about some very good things. He has some very nice plans. I approve of these plans. And works-in-progress, and changes already made. Like, replacing No Child Left Behind with something that DOESN'T SUCK. ...And it was kind of a nice moment when he mentioned how the health care reform is helping students and young adults by letting them get back on their parents' coverage. Because, I just did that. IT'S SO NICE. And it's really great seeing changes in policy that affect me personally in direct and obvious ways, even if it's only a small thing.
The theme of the day was WIN THE FUTURE. Which prompted this silly real-time conversation on Gchat with platoapproved while we both listened to Barack's comforting and inspiring word-noises:
platoapproved: the youtube streaming thing is way cool though
we are living in the future, Ange
zolac_no_miko: we have to WIN THE FUTURE
i hear the end guy is hard
platoapproved: Oh snap
Well we have some lives saved up I hope
zolac_no_miko: ...i have good health! :DD
not very many coins tho
platoapproved: SAME o/
Let's kill some people and pick their pockets
i'm really enjoying these sidequests. maybe a little too much.
...So, yeah, I'm glad I was able to do that. Thank you, o Google, wise and benevolent information overlords!
Okay guys, let's do this! Let's WIN THE FUTURE. Let's take this game to the next level! :DD
...Lol okay so aquidis just walked in the door and was like, "Win The Future? ...W T F...?" *facepalm*
