  • Thor: why would you think any of this was a good idea?!
  • Loki: probably because I'm a dangerous sociopath with a long history of violence
  • Thor: oh
  • Loki: I dont understand how you keep forgetting that.

Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.


To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:
Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?
Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255. On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.
And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!

“On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.”I about pissed myself laughing at this.

    #THEY DON’T WRITE EM LIKE THIS ANYMORE

    [echoes of eleven blowing up cybermen to get information in the distance]

    People who don’t love Nine are the dumbest.

    People think that Nine is dark sullen and a killer. They’re wrong. Nine’s not dark. He’s light and happy and in love. He wears a leather jacket and is the closest Doctor to the Time War, but he is not dark. He is a light person who is fighting his dark past. He knows what he’s done and is fighting to right his wrongs. He just wants everyone to live.

    Eleven on the other hand is the exact opposite. People think he’s a puppy in a fez. They’re wrong. He is not happy and joyful. He’s careless. He is having adventures while ruining lives and killing people. He is the man who forgets. He has forgotten the pain he felt after what he did and now is so comfortable killing.

    He doesn’t remember Nine. Nine, the Doctor with depression. Nine, the Doctor who fell in love with an nineteen year old shop girl who didn’t need a magic back story to be special. Nine, the Doctor who went and saved his friends without killing. Nine, the Doctor who chose to lose instead of causing loss.

    Nine chooses to give up being a god. Eleven pretends he is a god. Nine would make a merciful god. Eleven acts like a vengeful god. Nine is a puppy in a leather jacket. Eleven is a a killer in a fez.

    Always reblog people who get it how it really is.  *RESPECT*

    really this was one of the greatest episodes of OUAT so far. And this was the best line.

    I still credit this as THE best line of the show. Jefferson’s writing and line delivery was far and away the best on the show. OUAT is generally a fluffy show that verges on cute more than poignant. Jefferson though…Jefferson was something special. While Killian’s ambiguity is played with more charm and suavity, Jefferson’s moral ambiguity was nothing but ambiguous. He was dangerous and crazy and played with more of an edge than any other character, yet you still liked him because he was a third party observer to so much of what was going on and often had the same reaction as a cynical audience member.

    No wonder the writers refused to recast him. Jefferson was unique and my one regret for the show is that he wasn’t a major character.
