today i traded my labor for something that i actually wanted! by trimalchioin just_post

Fun fact: Bartering is basically a myth invented by economists. Bartering as a practice does exist but really only amongst people who are familiar with money but don't really have any right now or for some other reason are not using to for the current exchange.

The idea that people initially bartered and then invented money to make it easier is basically completely imaginary and no evidence for it has ever been found.

Before money people generally engage in various forms of gift economy without formal understandings of debt. After all if you have no exchange medium like money to abstract value out then how do you compare the value of turnips and a wolf pelt? Their use and thus value is completely unrelated to each other. How many turnips is a wolf pelt worth if you don't have money to act as a middleman? It's basically a nonsensical question but economists have no imagination and thus assumed the way it works now is how it always worked and invented their own creation myth in the form of the barter economy.

also it turns out the optimum strategy is to sit in an office where you can't get a proper GPS signal so your character runs back and forth constantly while it tries to figure out where you are

I like the convenience of a kindle but also crave the feeling of materialistic possession so every time I want a new books I buy a new kindle and put it on my bookshelf.

It took me three tries but I finally got into Bastion (the 2011 video game) and then just tore my way on through it and had a great time by toasthastein just_post

[–]oakreef 2 points3 points ago

Go play Transistor now it's also great. Also play through a new game+ of Bastion with all of the idols activated all the time (it's hard)

when "low rez" games have sub-pixel movement by oakreefin just_post

[–]oakreef[S] 4 points5 points ago

Mario and Sonic both had sub pixel coordinates to make movement smooth that's fine I'm only talking about drawing things so that the apparent pixels don't line up
