26VIDEO: If there were a Dunning-Kruger Prize, Ted Cruz would win it for his inflated opinion of himself as a global warming denier "who actually looks at the real data"; for comparing "accepted scientific wisdom" to beliefs in a flat earth; and for thinking that his denialism makes him akin to Galileo. (Starts at about 16:30)
upneutraldown

35Tim Schafer makes fun of Gamergate at GDC (it is literally an industry punchline). AlphaOmegaSin's reaction: he's racist and is commuting career suicide because he pissed off all gamers, because apparently Gamergate is made up of most people who play video games.
upneutraldown

5Pax Dickinson was fired for gross, sustained offensiveness on the company dime. This has made it difficult for him to get venture capital.
