How exactly did John Carmack become so BASED?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X68Mm_kYRjc
he was always based
>>7103531Yes but what was his secret? How did he attain such high-level BASED?
This is what young men used to do when they actually socialized in person.
>>7103541Destroying random shit with novelty fantasy weapons is a time-honored nerd gathering tradition. Breaking down an office door with a $5k battle-axe is a little extreme but also not too surprising. If you're going to pay that much for an axe you might as well swing it.
>>7103541unlike most manlets he didn't accept defeat, he equipped a battle axe
>>7103541He's intelligent and has always had interest in a variety of hobbies and subjects.
>>7103528I thought he broke the door because Romero was too busy deathmathching and Carmack told him to get back to work.
Carmack got in legal trouble for breaking into his high school to steal the computers in the lab.
>>7103662Nah, Romero locked himself in and didn't have the keys with him. John did stuff like put his desk in the hallway to watch everyone to make sure they were working and later had the walls knocked out so he could monitor everyone. This came later than this time though. Here's the full page from Masters of Doom OP comes from.
>>7103664That's because he's secretly an asshole. No one here would hold the opinion they do of Carmack if they actually had to work for any length of time under the little fuckhead.
>>7103671>Scott Miller wasn't the only one to go before id began working on Doom. Mitzi would suffer a similar fate. Carmack's cat had been a thorn in the side of the id employees, beginning with the days of her overflowing litter box back at the lake house. Since then she had grown more irascible, lashing out at passersby and relieving herself freely around his apartment. The final straw came when she peed all over a brand-new leather couch that Carmack had bought with the Wolfenstein cash. Carmack broke the news to the guys. "Mitzi was having a net negative impact on my life," he said. "I took her to the animal shelter. Mmm.">"What?" Romero asked. The cat had become such a sidekick of Carmack's that the guys had even listed her on the company directory as his significant other - and now she was just gone ? "You know what this means?" Romero said. "They're going to put her to sleep! No one's going to want to claim her. She's going down! Down to Chinatown!">Carmack shrugged it off and returned to work. The same rule applied to a cat, a computer program or, for that matter, a person. When something becomes a problem, let it go or, if necessary, have it surgically removed.
>>7103706Yeah, a bit of a dickhead on that account but he has acknowledged that he was a arrogant little shit who saw everyone else as annoying insects compared to his intelligence when he was younger and has mellowed out alot.
>>7103706man thats fucked
>>7103706>>7103725>>7104667>still eats beef and pork>NOOOO DONT KILL THE PET NOT MUH BABYFURWhy are petfags so irrational?
What the work force was like before women entered the field.
>>7103706>They're going to put her to sleep! No one's going to want to claim her. She's going down! Down to Chinatown!"Do americans really do this?
Post the comics
>>7104742It was the early 90s
>>7104742gotta keep chinese buffets cheap somehow
>>7104764>>7104742They still do it. If they can't find a home for them they are euthanized.
>>7103528Are any of the original team still I'm contact with one another? From a surface level it doesn't seem so but I haven't looked too hard into it
>>7103542NO NO NO WE HAVE TO KEEP THE LOCKDOWN GOINGI MAKE 100K A YEAR DOING MY HR JOB FROM HOME IN MY JAMMY JAMS, SO AMERICA MYST STAY CLOSED. EVERYONE MUST BE AN INTROVERT SHUTIN LIKE ME, VALIDATE MY LIFESTYLE!
>>7104742NO NO NO HE MADE AN OFF COLOR JOKECANCEL HIM FELLOW YUROKEKS
>>7103528who the fuck is this lesbian
>>7105480Fuck off mentally challenged schizo.
John "brain on legs" Carmack.
>>7105473John Romero and Tom Hall have still been close but Tom seems out of commission since he had his stroke.
>>7105763Dang that's unfortunate, about the stroke. Those things are awful. What about Carmack, he seems to be geeking out about VR or whatever. He talk to any of them?
>>7103565>had interest in a variety of hobbies and subjectsHow do you achieve this? The only thing that makes my neurons activate is porn and junk food.
>>7105883Not afaik. They all seem to ping each other on Twitter or whatever time to time.Sandy has like 8 grandkids.
>>7104717Calm down Mohamed/Chang
>>7106024I'm sorry, anon, but you just weren't meant for basedness.
>>7103541He's a nerd, extremely intelligent, confident and doesn't forget that he's a man. This industry didn't deserve him.>>7106024Break the chain and forget the fear of what people might think of you
>>7103528The only thing missing in Carmack is the urge to play some video games. He's based in anything else.
>>7105480Imagine being on 4chan as an extroverted normalfag.
>>7106080Appreciate the info my man, thank you
>>7103528>Carmack saves Romero's life>now they're mortal enemies
>>7103725More like his wife keeps his bullshit on a short leash and directs him to function like a normal goddamned human being
>>7103706to be fair once an adult cat decides it's going to start pissing wherever it wants it's basically impossible to train them not to do that anymorethat's when most indoors cats become outdoors cats
>>7106159anon I don't worry at all about others, I just can't find joy in anything besides basic pleasures and I'm dumb as fuck
>>7106024stop looking at porn, I'm not even asking you to stop masturbating, just stop porn
>>7107016>dude just stop doing things you are compelled to dofree will is a meme
>>7107019>compelledyou are not compelled, porn didn't exist for hundreds of millions of years... humans just enjoyed, you know, sex, you are just looking for excuses to keep consuming porn like cocainein fact, porn is worse, if you are not a retard cocaine probably could boost your performance on whatever thing you are doingacknowledge that you have a problem and stop looking porn, you will be surprised by all the time you will have to do other things
>>7103541>Yes but what was his secret?he still didn't learn
>>7107047>humans>hundreds of millions of yearswhat religion is this
>>7107090>millions of yearshappy?
>>7107096you need to drop another 0
>>7107103technically two 0s if you're talking about modern humans that left africa
>>7107103no, you are just talking about homo sapiens sapiens
>>7107090humans are mammals, anon, they surely had sex
