Don’t make me the villian for your child

Image created by j4p4n

I’m not sure if quite a few parents nowadays are starting to feel entitled, far to stressed out or just do not really want to be a parent in the first place but I am noticing much more that parents are using other things to take the blame so they do not need to parent anymore and as much as the saying “it takes a village to raise a child”, it is bullshit to blame the village for not doing your job.

So my story starts in a small cafe I enjoyed going to at times which serves quite nice chicken meals where a mother comes in with two children and some shopping. I am not sure how long it takes to order or what they ordered but after I started to eat I heard the woman say to her child something along the following.  Continue reading

Fallout 76: My Review

TL;DR: It is a fun game as long as you do not expect it to be like your typical Fallout game and that you do not rush right to the end. Update: Everything I said here still applies however this game, at least to me, now only works well as a stand-alone one time play with no replayability or sight of future content. Buy on Amazon

Welcome to Appalachia

If there is one game series I have had a 180-degree turn on with my opinion is the Fallout series. series but before I get onto my review there are a few things I have to say about Fallout itself as this ultimately changes my review and these opinions about Fallout are how I see it – not always how others see it.

The first is Fallout is an RPG game which allows you to decide what your character does with each interaction. Secondly, the same RPG setting allows you to design your character in such a way that for one gameplay you could rely purely on speech, another you can be a person that uses brute force, another where you just sneak and so on. Thirdly what you do in the game has an overall effect on how NPCs and the world react towards you.  Continue reading

This is a review with a referral link. Should you sign up with the referral link I am given a few “points”. Sign up.

Any extra always helps.

For a short, while now I have been trying out a service called Gener8 that has a simple goal in mind – they will replace all the adverts you see on websites with their own and instead of the owner of the website being paid, you are.  Continue reading

Plans for 2018

I have no idea how long it has been from when I last updated Tweaked for your Pleasure but I figure it’s worth speaking a bit about the changes I will be making on this website which I am aiming to start doing this year.

The first thing is soon I will be updating the website with new rants weekly. These rants are ones I have had for quite a while but one of the main issues I have had right now is making a cover image for each one even if they are only made in MS Paint although I now have a solution ready for this. I will also be doing monthly short stories from ideas found on Reddit as I did for the last one I posted a very long while ago.

I am also going to be posting programming tutorials which you will find a new section soon on this website (likely to be called Developer’s Compendium based on an old idea for a website in the past). The section called “Is it nice” may be removed as I do not see updating these often but if I decide to keep it I will be moving it into another header on the site itself.

With all that in mind, I will be changing the email subscriptions so you only get the content you want to read and further information about that will be posted in due time.

Video wise I will be releasing Playing Games with Snat two times a week although they will now be cut down to about 15 minutes or less and more edited to remove the more boring parts of them. I am also hoping to be work on Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure again although there is no time frame for this yet.

And lastly, it is quite likely I will be redesigning the website once again!

Why the sugar tax will fail

Why the Sugar tax will fail

Why the Sugar tax will fail

I don’t think there are many people who honestly don’t believe there is an obesity issue going on in the world and an issue that will take a massive mindset to change with education being the major thing that will be able to help but one of the ideas that have been floating around is the idea of a sugar tax (or “soft drinks industry levy”) which for the last two weeks or so officially started in the United Kingdom.

The logic behind this is pretty simple in that if you increase the price of sugar products that one of two things will happen. The first being the price of the drinks, foods etc will go up and the products that have less sugar or none will be cheaper and people will go over to buying them. The second is companies start using less sugar in order to keep the price around the same. Continue reading
