    Do the algorithms ever get you wrong?

    I've suddenly started getting ads on FB for earthworm jerky. I have no idea what it is in my profile that would have made someone (or some algorithm) say "this guy wants earthworm jerky"....but I'm also horribly intrigued.

    But still have to buy things for. "I don't understand why we had to come here." "It's date night." "But why are we at a restaurant?" "We're a couple. Couples go out to dinner together." "But you don't eat!" "I don't see what that has to do with anything." "Why did you order a dinner if you can't eat?" "Now you're just being mean." "You ordered STEAK and LOBSTER!"

    As I always say, "I don't like it" is not synonymous with "It's no good." Subjective taste and objective quality are both valid, but entirely different measures. I can appreciate a fictional entertainment for its production values, cinematography, intelligent script, skilled acting, etc., yet not enjoy it. OTOH I can recognize that something is poorly put together while still having fun watching it. For the record I put the Dark Knight trilogy in the former category. I admire what it accomplished but have no desire to watch any of those movies again. But I'm also no fan of the Batman character generally. (Now that may bring the haters down on my head.)

    Damage of the Mariana Trench

    When looking up the surface area of a human, I got 1.9 square meters. That translates to: 1.9 square meters = 2945.006 square inches That means at that depth, the victim is being subjected to 46,383,844.5 pounds of force or 21039.358 metric tons That's the equivalent of a 98 STR, so 19.5d6 every segment.

    On the one hand, Ancalagon fit within the Pits of Angband. On the other hand, the towers of Thangorodrim are described as taller than Everest, and Ancalagon's body destroyed three of them. We can resolve this discrepancy somewhat by assuming that Ancalagon fell from orbit, and that his breath weapon was powered by a warp core, which was breached upon impact.

    Certainly Obama wasn't going out of his way to save coal, but neither did he do anything to kill it. Renewables, fracking, natural gas, and the resulting economics have inflicted the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique on coal, and coal has taken about two steps out of the five it has left.

    This talk of "balance" has reminded me that all too many people in my nation confuse neutrality with objectivity. Neutrality -> "Side A says this. Side B says that. Both sides are equal./We leave it to you to decide who is correct." Objectivity -> "Side A says this. Side B says that. The facts show that what Side B says is true whereas Side A is either horribly misinformed on the matter or perhaps deliberately deceitful."

    Precog doesn't need to be addressed, it already is. Players who have poor reading comprehension and skewed expectations is not really something the rules can address... that's the GMs job. RE the Money Perk, it's addressed well enough. What isn't addressed is in any given Setting Book there's little or no space dedicated to translating that Perk into a meaningful number for the game at hand.
