Welcome back to another Friday Open Thread, where the discussion is the host is maddening and the replies aren’t half crazy either.

This week has seen the world once again go topsy-turvey, with it being finished with the revelation that Palmer Luckey, the creator behind the Oculus Rift VR headset, is secretly funding a pro-Trump group, along with Milo Yiannopolous, designed to drag online discourse on the election further into the mud, likely in an attempt to stop people noticing how fucked his preferred candidate is. By what I’m sure is just a happy coincidence South Park returned last week and so far the first two episodes have all focused on the spectre of online harassment and that people just get off on doing it without caring about how others are effected.

So what are you guys up to this week then? I’m not planning much but getting back into Uni business which could be interesting depending on what happens in the new modules.
