  1. My sentence seems to be little bit misleading: I am refering to Democracy as a system that makes minorities not wonder - like in a dictatorial regime - that being in the minority may lead to their lives being shortened or turned to be horrible (in cages). Something that you and I can be thankful for. Right now, that is stil the case in both our countries (I assume you are from the US), though the atmosphere also becomes more toxic here.
  2. You are not the only one! Very insightful, unbiased and looking at it from every perceivable angle - not this "black-white-this side is 100% right and you are all nogoodniks" that most of the media, "activist", pundits and politicians are spreading. Let's hate - in the name of whatever ... I long for times when problems are addressed in a civilized, fact-based manner again, when arguments are exchanged and listened to from both sides. Hell, even the 80s with the Cold War getting hotter were better than today in this regard - and then the USA and the USSR had literally a gun at each others' temple and whispering "Hey, bub! Want some?" I am so tired and fed up with screaming people on either side of the fence unwilling (and I fear - becoming unable) to even considering that the other side might have half a point here and there. Democracy is the rule of the majority while looking out that the minority still holds rights that defend them and make them NOT wonder if they are alive or in a cage tomorrow. Democracy is - for better or worse - working on compromise within a society.
  3. Everybody knows that cats just love to rip .. ehm .. rap!
  4. That could just sell me on the idea of taking a hike ...
  5. I believe the Bat 'er he kicks my face in again!
  6. "Do not have men in underwear in scenes with women, and no nude men at all." That takes the cake! 😁
  7. That's a product I am really looking forward to. I hope there will be at least a POD-option - I like PDFs, but having long-dead processed tree in my hands beats any PDF every time of the day and twice on High Nooon!
  8. Hi-ho, Silver! Way to go (to Dodge City)!
  9. Well, I just have hold my breath sitting in front of the monitor and could do it for two minutes on the first try. The last 30 seconds were not really comfortable and I was really looking forward to catch my breath again but I have felt that I could last maybe some 10 seconds more if I really had to. And no - I am not sporty or hero material. And of course, I wasn't exerting myself - just holding my breath and watching the clock hand turning. So, two minutes seems all right to me and in now way out of the way.
  10. Yes, in AFRICA! But lucky Him that there was a mongoose around - probably on a sightseeing tour from INDIA - that kinda volunteered to give him said blood transfusion. The Whizzer's backstory is so stupid and without any sense on so many levels it almost makes sense again: "Sooo - you say that you were bitten by a venomous snake in Africa, got a bloodtransfusion from an animals that is hunting and killing snakes that only liveds India but just happened to be there. Then the quac ... doctor who came up with the idea got killed by a heart attack and you developed this super-speed power and now you are fighting crime and dating that wealthy, flying superstrong loooker? Hmmm ... yeah, sounds totally legit to me. I believe you 100% because this tale is too stupid that someyone could invent it, tell it straight-faced and think that anyone would believe it!"
  11. Well, it is hard to keep an EXCELLENT cover down!
  12. Yeah, it's just us ugly folks playing HERO. *sigh* It's a shame ... 😉 But generally speaking: HERO has always been quite under the radar. As far as I remember (started with Champions back in the 80s) it was always the "odd system out" - you had a better chance to find someone playing GURPS (which BTW is also not as popular as it used to be). No publications from HERO Games sure is a bummer.
