I’ve been trying to map out the United Republic’s territory and Korra’s travel through the Earth kingdom when I realized something…

Zaofu is on a mountain range near Ba Sing Se and en route to the Si Wong Desert (judging by the screens from the next few episodes, the team is headed to the Desert next)

that means….

Zaofu was built on the place where Toph discovered metalbending.

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.

What if Lin and Suyin make up and decide to confront Toph about who their fathers are, and she’s just like “Lol idk” so they’re like “What how can you not know?”

And she’s all:

Team Fortress 2 (MVM update), 2012

There were an impressive amount of custom animations added for the robots in the MVM update. I had assumed they would mostly be using the same animations as normal players since it seems like the relevant models have the same bone structure, but in reality almost every animation is unique from their human counterparts across all nine classes. These two are particularly entertaining headshot animations.
