->''Secondly, Keenan tried his upmost to explain, both on the phone and via Facebook Messenger, that he had no connection to ''Franchise/GrandTheftAuto'' itself, and that asking questions about a major video game corporation he had nothing to do with wouldn't be very productive. He suggested they contact Creator/RockstarGames, which, you know, makes sense for anyone doing a news report on Rockstar's games and [[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer their supposed variants]]. The response from Nine News Adelaide? "Who are rockstar games?" Who are Rockstar Games? One of the most famous game developers in the world, the fucking studio that made ''Grand Theft Auto'', and this "news" organisation [[PopCulturalOsmosisFailure somehow had never heard of them]]. For anyone covering video games to any serious degree, any professional context, [[EpicFail that ought to be a statistical impossibility]], but here we are! Channel 9 News Adelaide, doing the fucking unthinkable and talking about ''[=GTA=]'' as an alleged reporter without knowing what the fuck a Rockstar Games is! Makes you wonder how much research they actually did, if any at all. Did they simply stumble upon a local game developer's work, realise it looked a little bit like ''GTA'' with local architecture, and [[MaliciousSlander attempt a hitpiece based solely on that sliver of material]] without bothering to do any sort of research at all? In my opinion yeah. Yeah, pretty fucking much.''

->The occasional mistake is one thing. Consistent and complete lack of research is another. And for the love of God, authors, is it that difficult to hand your manuscript to a native speaker of the foreign tongue you're attempting to mangle and ask them 'Look, [[InMyLanguageThatSoundsLike would somebody actually say something like this in your language]], or did I just inadvertently reveal my hero's latent homosexual tendencies by having him address the heroine by the masculine form of 'my darling' throughout the book?'

->''One of the biggest and most central characters to any war story is the war itself. Real life historical wars often have numerous accounts written from many different perspectives. These varied records can make researching the setting easy, but they make even better drink coasters. It is far easier to skim a Wikipedia article before getting bored a third of the way through and instead watch Series/{{Mash}}. [[SarcasmMode Don't worry, I'm sure history nerds won't point out a story's historical inaccuracies]].''
