having finished portal 2 yesterday I can't help but think that there is some sort of correlation between this and a lack of innovation

Eric seems like a hard guy to talk to.
Vicious - 2011-04-24
When I meet Eric, I'm just going to carry him around on my back like Yoda.

When, not if.

Tom Collins - 2011-04-24
I fond him normal.

Sorry, Erik.

PS: mail me some jerky; I'm starving.

freedoom - 2011-04-24
all i can think about now is "om nom nom nom" coming from Gabe Newell.

Is there any substance more inert and useless than caffeine free diet coke? Why not just bust out some fruit juice at that point?
Lurchi - 2011-04-24
fruit juice has a lot of sugar

drink nothing but water, iced tea, or black coffee


FABIO - 2011-04-24
Fruit juice can also mean orange or grapefruit.

Keep sucking on your corn syrup, fatty.

What are you even talking about?

Caminante Nocturno - 2011-04-24
Why don't you two just start making out and get it over with?

FABIO - 2011-04-24
Who want to make out with a fatty?

An average person drinking caffeine free diet coke isn't that strange.

A 600 pound man having a stockpile of soda placebo on hand is kind of tragic.

If Lurch can't recognize the spectacle in that and starts talking about drink nazis instead, I don't even want to imagine how many jelly rolls he's sporting.

spikestoyiu - 2011-04-24
Am I seriously reading someone advocating the consumption of caffeine-free Diet Coke over fruit juice?

Samisyosam - 2011-04-24
Fruit juice isn't that good for you. Eating actual fruit is good for you. You want more plant matter in your body slowing the absorption of fructose; 'extra pulp' OJ doesn't count. If you drank as much grape juice as some people drink soda on a daily basis, you'd end up just as fat and diabetic as the people you see exiting Wendy's on a mobility scooter.

Mother_Puncher - 2011-04-24
I drink Coke Zero but I'm not a fan of the caffeine. And it depends on the fruit juice. I try to avoid sugary stuff especially high fructose corn syrup. I'm also not big on the snacks listed. I feel like if I just sat around all day eating sugary, fatty foods, I'd feel like shit all the time.

I'm not sure what's going on in this thread, but I'm 5 staring it.

spikestoyiu - 2011-04-25
Which magical "fruit juice" are we talking about here? Because there are many. It helps to be specific.

spikestoyiu - 2011-04-25
Did you know SANDWICHES are bad for you?

Anaxagoras - 2011-04-25
No, it really doesn't matter that much which fruit juice we're talking about. Samisyosam is correct; pretty much all fruit juices aren't that good for you, given today's average diet. They're all high in sugar but low in fiber.

Did you know that Spikes doesn't know much about nutrition?

spikestoyiu - 2011-04-25
Is that because I suggested that not all fruit juices are created equal? Or because I was confused that someone would recommend Diet Coke over the ambiguous "fruit juice"? Or is it because you're jealous of my eight pack?

Obviously eating fruit is an infinitely better idea than attempting to drink it, and I'm not sure what kind of numbnuts would suggest otherwise. But nobody said that.

I can't believe it's not butter?

CornOnTheCabre - 2013-04-24
stop drinking iced tea you dumb piece of shit


baleen - 2011-04-24
I worked for a digital interactive agency and for a while it had this kind of snack room as well. Fat people eating fat fucking food all day in their fat faces. It was gross.
Vicious - 2011-04-24
We've all seen your Christmas video, George Wendt.

balistic - 2011-04-25
I gained about 30 pounds in my 3 years at Blur.

50-60 hours weeks plus free snacks/beer plus no self control.


Menudo con queso - 2011-04-24
And this snack room never, ever runs outta sausage -- wokka wokka wokka!
oswaldtheluckyrabbit - 2011-04-24
yeah dude fuck their snacks
Caminante Nocturno - 2011-04-24
Valve should try selling Half-Life Snacks. You know, little fruit snacks shaped like crowbars, headcrabs, and combine heads. They could even add Companion Cube-shaped ones in that pale pink color that was considered a delicacy by fruit snack standards.
spikestoyiu - 2011-04-24
That was the most embarrassing thing I've ever read.

Caminante Nocturno - 2011-04-24
Is this the first post of mine you've ever read on this site?

I interview Eric for Portal 2... he really is weirdly neurotic like that all the time, which is awesome when you're writing Portal 2.
poorwill - 2011-04-24
It's Erik with a k.

I have nothing to say about this snack bar video.

Erik Wolpaw. Erik Johnson. || Eric Hope. Eric Kerchmer.
Samisyosam - 2011-04-24
Considering that their minds need to be fed sugar regularly and a slim physique is such a low priority for job performance, this is actually an ingenious solution to dealing with programmers.
deadpan - 2011-04-24
At least we know where Erik got the inspiration for GlaDOS. Damn you, passive-aggressive snack lady!
Tom Collins - 2011-04-24
I always thought that was the ghost of Codehappy.

Vhere is my sandvich?
pastorofmuppets - 2011-04-25
Erik made a scatter plot called "others' proximity to my desk vs. average # of stress-relieving trips to the snack room."

He then tried to show the snack lady that there was a positive correlation, but she wouldn't look at it.
Rape Van Winkle - 2011-04-25
Erik would have written "their proximity."

Rape Van Winkle - 2011-04-25
Without identifying them.

chumbucket - 2011-04-25
Their quarterly reports need to keep tabs on the status of the snack room as it appears to be directly connected to revenue and profit margins.
