  1. Finally getting back into gaming, running D&D 5e's The Sunless Citadel. The PCs have just encountered the kobold Meepo, who has agreed to take them to see his leader. There's a password he shouts every once and again. Meepo: "Meepo will say (word) sometimes. Is sa--password." Me OOC: "I almost said safeword. That's just not right." Jeff OOC: "That's a whole 'nother kind of dungeon."
  2. I have often been flamed for referring to the WW2 Holocaust has the second biggest attempted genocide in world history, as IIRC we slaughtered far more Native Americans as Germany did the Jewish. In an unrelated note, Al Franken is resigning. While I agree that what he did was terrible, I don't think he should have resigned while Trump, who publicly confessed to the far worse crime of child rape, is still in office. And I firmly agree with the above, that Germany and other European countries need to prepare themselves against potential American aggression. I don't think we're going to get out of this one ... it wasn't even a slippery slope into fascism, it was more like walking off a cliff but, in true Wile E. Coyote style, most people didn't realize it until we actually looked down. I'm earnestly ashamed to be American right now (and a white male, for that matter). The 'American Experiment' is over, and it failed.
  3. Dear Human Race, Do not say 'I want your honest opinion' when you really mean 'I only want your opinion if I share it'. If you decide to do so anyway, don't b*tch when you get it. Signed, Someone whose honest opinion was recently solicited-not-solicited.
  4. I'm not sure I'm grokking all the terms right, but understanding why something was how it was and 'forgiving' it are two different things to me. Yes, I understand why it was considered acceptable to portray minorities in those ways back in the 30s/40s/50s. Socially acceptable and right are not synonymous to me. It was still wrong, vile, disgusting, pathetic, and moronic. I don't think those things should be forgiven; I would have no problems with them being locked away, brought out only in the context of showing how backwards and pathetic we were, something to inspire shame and revulsion to ensure it never becomes acceptable again.
  5. "Bet that wasn't a conversation you expected to hear two fifty-year-olds have in front of you." --Me, to a Wal-Mart cashier, after my wife and I saw a display of Pokemon plushies nearby and talked about our favorite Eeveelultions (Eevee and five were there, three missing).
  6. The more I look at that pic, the less I think he's actually touching her. I freely admit my vision stinks, but it looks like his fingers are not in contact with her clothing. Still inappropriate as hell, even through body armor. To Old Man's point, Roger Ailes tweeted about the pic before it actually became public knowledge. With this, her Trumpty-Dumpty support, and being a friend of Hannity, is suspicious to enough of us that we suspect this is all some kind of setup. We have the damning pic, yes, but everything else, AFAIK, is on the tongue of someone who supports a guy publicly in favor of sexual assault who lies 5.5 times a day to the populace. The fact that Franken outright said 'bring on the investigation' makes me think he thinks so, too, as opposed to Moore's attempted cover-ups. At the very least, unlike Moore and Trump, Franken has shown genuine contrition as opposed to deception and pride, respectively; that should count for something. Heck, she even accepted his apology and said he shouldn't resign (which I actually find suspicious). And in case it wasn't obvious, I freely admit my bias: My loathing of Trump is such that I inherently distrust anybody who supports him. Loathing is too soft a word. Saying what I would like to do to him here would violate the code of conduct, terms of service, FCC regulations, common decency, X-Rated Movie restrictions, a half-dozen religious mores, and possibly the Geneva Conventions.
  7. ESPECIALLY for those who believe in separation of church and state. I'm honestly of the mind that anybody who says anything indicating they're going to put their religion above the Constitution shouldn't be allowed to hold public office. They're literally saying 'I have no intention of following my sworn Oath of Office'.
  8. Last I heard, he was down by eight to ten. Not that it means much.
  9. So, Roy Moore and his wife have evidently forged those letters of support they got from Alabama pastors. I think it's safe to say he knows he's busted.
