why is there a theme in fantasy games of NPC's and yourself questioning if there is a god or a "realm beyond" when you're fighting demons, arch-angels, and corrupt mages who were cast out of heaven, giving evidence everywhere of the answer

why does piping/rocketing yourself as you hit a jump pad boost you more than you'd expect a jpad + pipe distance would get you combined?

is jpad synergy with explosions intentional

Toast lands butter side down and cats always land on their feet.. so what happens if you tape a slice of toast to a cats back and throw it up in the air?

The butter never touches the ground and the cat will land on its feet and run away. Also, don't tape toast to cats and throw them, that is a very cruel thing to do.

are prepaid gift cards, and by the same token steam wallet mini-scams?

if you get someone a gift card to a store and they underspend (they buy a $19 item with their $20 gift card) the store keeps the $1 unclaimed difference since you're not gonna be using your card again for just a dollar, and if you do, you spent more money than the card had so the store gains as well.

with steam wallet, from what I understand, you can only buy in increments of $5 or $10 so if you don't spend an exact multiple of $5 on a game there's always going to be an unclaimed difference for when you finally stop playing video games

do I have a point or no

why are gift cards to certain stores even so ubiquitous now having them for each store when you can get a prepaid credit card that would work anywhere

maybe it's just because it's easier for a company to make gift cards than customers are informed. i don't think they make out

Does turning a flashlight on during a pickup help in any way?

Yes. It's one of the best marketing decisions ever.

It's even smarter from steam wallet. Someone buys a TF2 hat, and then sells it to someone else for cheaper on the market.

BUT VALVE STILL TAKES A CUT FROM EVERY TRANSACTION!

You pay them twice for the same piece of digital hat/fabric.

Fucking brilliant, a lot of economics is an iterated shell scam to begin with, but hats off (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?) to Valve for figuring out a way to make money more than once off the same thing.
