A week or two back though, Darryn started a twitter conversation that spilled over into all of the other social channels I’m in. It also eroded what little respect I had for him – and for much of humanity in general. I discovered on that day, that many people eat their cereal with hot milk. What? WHY?
It’s Friday the 13th! For many, it’s an ill omen, a sign of impending misfortune – for other like me, it’s a meaningless day. It’s a Friday, and Friday the 13th is better than Monday the anything. Triskaidekaphobia is a very real thing, and one of the more prevalent superstitions. While I don’t consider myself a superstitious person at all, I’ll still pause when I have to say, walk under a ladder, or open an umbrella indoors. Then I’ll do it anyway as reason overrides the bits of my brain that have these long-ingrained superstitions in them.
There’s an adage around social media platforms and their associated apps and service: If you’re not paying for it, then you’re the product. It’s entirely reductive, of course – but it’s the belief that if a website or service is pending its time and resources to give you content without asking for anything in return, then they are probably selling information about you to others to make money, to sell ads or worse – some other nefarious purpose.
The new God of War has been five years in the making. It’s a big change for Kratos; not only has he switched over to a new Pantheon of gods to kill, but he’s also got a son in tow. In a world with new gods and monsters, Kratos must teach his son Atreus not only to survive, but also prevent him from making the same mistakes. It’s got everything you’d expect from God of War and more – with a strong narrative, a dark world and unflinching, brutal combat. AND NOW YUOU CAN WIN IT!
