Neither Am I
Oh man, I completely missed this!
Turns out I'm a total gonk too!
Fellow gonk, how do you do?
WHAT THE FUCK.
Don't beat yourself up. I learned last year that Narwhals were real.....I'm 38.
To be fair they seem like they shouldn’t exist. It’s a whale with a big ass swirly tooth
This fuckin game!! I remember figuring out why they called them "Eddies" and thought I was a genius. Thanks for the humbling 😅🤣
....why are they called Eddie’s lol
I’m not a shmart man either...this is why smart guns are the way
A-22B Chao: let your gun do the thinking for you.
Wow I never made the connection
It was also because you were in a corporate rat race
Also, this is a very literal translation of a common name for people working in corporations in Polish (korposzczur). The rat part comes from the rat race.
I love it when puns work in more than one language.
Upvoting because of your honesty.
Lots of praise for the world building in this thread, and it's all going to ''this game''. Most of it is thanks to Mike Pondsmith. Happy to see praise for CDPR's efforts but don't forget the person that brought most of the lore to life!
Not just Pondsmith, but the whole of Talsorian, too!
The tabletops are so damn good
lol uh, me too! Thanks for sharing choom!
That makes sense lol.
Wowww yeah I’m not very bright either apparently lol
Son of a Bitch. I'm a gonk T.T.
Fun fact! Jonny Silverhand's name is a reference to his cyber arm, which is silver.
Just messing with you, homie lol!
Along with the DMvs character Morgan Blackhand, who also has a synthetic arm
Man, I missed that too!! I thought it was in reference to the "Corporate Rat Race"
It's that, too.
You are not alone....
Honestly, I think that's the same for most...
Really just depends on how long.
Because corporate sounds like corp-writ...so you don't even think about it unless they are adjacent. Corporat just sounds good on its own.
Same with Corpo Shit I see around the game.
I was about 29 when I realized that they aren't called "Space Heaters" because of anything to do with outer space.
They're just heaters which heat a space.
Ok that's actually really funny. I never even thought about it like it's some high tech astronaut tech that maybe Space could be part of its origin of something.
Great now I’m never going to pronounce corporate the same way again
Word's now cooler than it already was
I completely missed this !
I just realized that as well! LOL
Ummmm WHAT? Same!
I Am fuckin stupid confirm
..I found out just now
Thanks for opening my eyes as to how much of a fucking idiot I am.
Well... fuck. I guess I’m not either.
Oh wow, you just blew my mind with this!
Oh.... I learned something new today
I did not get this before either
Guys cyberpunk is a play on words, both cyber and punk are words. If you play around and put them together, boom, punkcyber
Don't worry chooms is "chums" pronouncing the long "u"
wow... am I retarded? i just thought it was a completely made up word
You're giving r/skyrim a run for their money.
FUUUUUCK me how did i not notice
lol i didn’t know either
Well we are all not smart together.
... well shit, i shouldve noticed this
Well, you're smarter than me!
You blew my mind!
Holy shit hahaha
I learned more in this thread today than I did in real life.
I must be stupid because thanks to this post I've only just realised that corpo rat is a play on words for corporate
It took me a solid month to figure out the “Eddies” are eurodollars
I feel ya. It took me forever to realize that ganic was slang for organic
This made me re-download the game
You're not alone choom, put me on that list too
Don't know if it's intentional or not but Choom is "Chum" with the long U.
Welcome to the revolution, brother.
Bruh, fuckin woah.
Well... It's nice that you're honest about how long it took you. Don't feel too slow, some people take forever to notice wordplay, some people (like me) walk past a potted plant every day for two years and only notice its existence when they're moving out.
We're all dumb in different ways.
Also the word Posh comes from
That makes two of us mate...
damn me too. i guess we're all not smart then.
BRB. Gotta pick up my jaw from the floor
Not alotnof people realized this including me !
I was this seconds when I learned this. You are smart man.
I actually only realized it during the last few hours of my first playthrough. I saw an NPC with a “Burn Corpo Shit” shirt but I could not see the “Shit” word. So, I was just guessing what it was. I thought it was “Burn Corpo Rat” and then it hit me. Corpo Rat...corporate!
What makes this even more embarrassing is that I chose the Corpo life path and I would’ve never guessed it if not for that instance.
It's like that and the play on words for "Lab Rat"
I only caught on because it reminded me of right wingers calling democrats - “demonrats” lol
Same energy as discovering the pun 'rat' in "Ratatouille".
These threads make me feel a whole lot better about myself, thank you.
I the ok not. :|
