  1. This reminds me of the suggestion that Congresspersons be required to wear outfits like NASCAR drivers so that we can tell at a glance who's sponsoring them.

  3. Not my words, but poingiant, and I cannot find the original source at the moment, but something to the effect of "why have we ever accepted that if you don't just automatically do what a police officer tells you, when he tells you, how he tells you, for as long as he tells you, that he has the right to murder you? Why are we accepting that any police encounter can become an impromptu game of Simon Says and if you don't play perfectly, you get shot? Again, not my words, but I approve of them heartily.

    I had my second shot yesterday (Pfizer). I woke up this morning with chills, fatigue, and general aches and pains--not incapacitating, but I can barely focus enough to play with chemicals. At least that means my immune system is doing its job!

  11. I remember when "generic" was a thing. Low-priced canned corn that had a black and white label that simply read "Corn" with no colors, pictures, etc. That kind of thing. There was a fast food restaurant near where I grew up that took up the concept as well. I think it was called The Original Hamburger Stand. They had a limited menu with low prices (hamburgers for 20 cents, cheeseburgers for 25 cents) and black and white wrappers. I remember when McDonalds used to serve their sandwiches in polystyrene containers. My nerves still cringe when I think of the sound of two s

    Had my second shot(Pfizer) on Wednesday afternoon and didn't have any side effects until late that night. Then I got the chills and fever that usually come along with a cold. Was pretty wiped until Thursday night and it began to clear up. Fine this morning so I'm ready to face the world(with mask on).

    I still prefer Football Team. It’s ironic and hilarious. That team went from having the worst name to the best. I find most of the other suggestions in the list to be uninspired, though the Football Club ones are amusing. DC cries out for a team name like Revolutionaries or Privateers. I’d especially like them to be called the Conspirators, but that may be too accurate.

  24. And if the drain/aid/blast/entangle can only be used on combination with the kick/punch (not by themselves), you would actually put a Linked limitation on them, not a Trigger advantage. Doug Since you mentioned being worried about making it cost too much.

  27. Lily White Lily White is an African American woman who was radicalized into the Black Power movement. She also studied various forms of self defense to protect herself from "The Pigs" (the police, who of course are controlled by White Upper Class Society, bka "The Man"). She wanted to help out the men of the movement, but she was always told to stay back/stay at home. Fed up, one day she just left the movement and joined WITCH. If the men wouldn't let her fight, the women will. She became the martial artist of the group. Her martial arts styles are Capoeira, Dambe, Dir

  28. I'm reading G. K. Chesterton's "Father Brown" mystery stories. In one story, it is repeatedly said of a certain man that "He read his Bible." The wily priest comments on this that it is not enough to read your Bible: You must read other people's Bibles, too, because people who read the Bible tend to find what they already want to believe. And some of those Bibles are not very nice. Dean Shomshak

    Studies from the Starlord Research Institute (SRI) show that stupid people have remarkably strong immune systems. Our scientists theorize that 'stupid people' immune response has adapted to keep the stupid gene alive.

  34. As much as I dislike/mistrust the current composition of the Supreme Court and the ridiculous political shenanigans that lead thereto, I can't say I'm thrilled with this move. I think it has to potential to set a dangerous precedent. Democrats to introduce bill to expand Supreme Court from 9 to 13 justices I think this is probably just a statement; I don't think they've got the votes or the political capital to pull it off.

  35. I quite like RWBY, too. Though I'm not much into CRPGs/MMOs, I understand it's closer in feel to those than TTRPGs like Hero. For one thing it's very visual, a lot of the fun is the art, character design, and fight choreography. Aura is a bit like STN, though it doesn't recover as quickly. It's also a bit like D&D hit points in that it's a get out of damage free ablative shield and once it's down you take real damage rather than being KO'd, just, unlike hp, it has a consistent rationale. I think you could do a pretty good interpretation of RWBY using the last v

  37. Tucker struck a nerve when he started ranting about Canadian internment camps the other day. I realize Trudeau isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination, and that his government has it's problems, but to call sending travelers refusing to quarantine properly upon entering the country, to guarded hotels to complete said mandatory quarantine is somehow akin to Nazi deathcamps makes my blood boil. This is from a guy who supports the open air caging of illegal adults and children in terrible and unjust conditions!

  42. "White Lives Matter" is an attempt to start a movement with nothing to justify it but hurt feelings. This demographic don't experience any oppression remotely close to what others in American society have faced for generations. They're finally starting to be treated like everyone else instead of the normative, privileged group everyone is supposed to act like. When a privileged group loses those privileges, to them it feels like oppression. But when you ask them why they're upset, all they can give you is vague platitudes, or outright lies they've been fed by those who want to exploit them. Th

  43. We get into what is "a power" for this purpose. Some examples: - do you have "10d6 Blast", or "10d6 Energy Blast, Mystic Flames" - that is, can you decide to switch from fire to cold, lightning, acid, sonic, a rain of dead fish, a glowing green boxing glove or any special effect that occurs to you on the spot? - can you choose only an 8d6 Blast because you want to keep a bit of Flight active? - I suspect the 30 and 25 point Force Fields may be an oversight, but do I have to write down every possible combination of PD and ED, from 1 PD or 1 ED right on up to 30 PD, 30
