I wish I could just make an account.

They can't possibly attack Poland and risk a NATO response. This is posturing.

This is a terrible, repetitive article. It reads like a high school kid shooting for word count. On top of that, it's kinda vaguely fascist in overtones, flirtly slightly with "government reinforcing traditional gender roles". If that isn't the author's intent, hoo boy they need a good-ass editor.

I'm not sure where "global communism" and "fascist state headed by Vladimir Putin" intersect, but it sure ain't anywhere sane. Defederation from the Lemmygrad school of insanity seems like a grand old time.

Official Reddit announcement posts now follow a well-defined archetype. The latest accessibility announcement is just the latest example.

In the old days, official reddit announcement posts were a little different. Spuds, or another high-level admin would reply to a comment. Dozens of users would then reply with something like “When are you going to ban r/the_donald.” The threads were massive and quickly became unwieldy, but they seemed organic....

All of the good Google results point at Reddit. You know how hard it is to get anything done without Reddit comments?

Physical media also fades over time, unfortunately. The most realistic solution is unironically digital piracy; "keep circulating the tapes" can keep digital media alive indefinitely. It's not enough for the publisher to keep putting out copies, bootlegs are preservation, too.

It's legitimately important that people new to the TTRPG scene learn what a "magical realm" is just for fluency's sake. This comic is a cultural touchstone, which is hilarious because it's about piss wizards.

The real Christian values of "violent hatred for everyone around you", "infinite greed" and "insatiable appetite for incest", mostly.

You know, I don't know if I want him dead in prison or squealing like a stuck pig more. I'm inclined towards Team Sellout on an intellectual level, but his corpse slumped in a concrete box has a certain visceral appeal.

Kuwait to distribute 100,000 copies of Quran in Sweden after Muslim holy book desecrated at one-man protest (www.cbsnews.com)

Kuwait announced this week that it will print thousands of copies of the Quran in Swedish to be distributed in the Nordic country, calling it an effort to educate the Swedish people on Islamic “values of coexistence.” The plan was announced after the desecration of a Quran during a one-man anti-Islam protest that Swedish...

There shouldn't be freedom of religion. I'd interpret this as a hostile action by Kuwait to try and encourage the growth of a hate group.

I dunno dude if every single religion has a problem with, your words, committing atrocities, maybe we just shouldn't allow religion.

Most religions are mostly just about murdering everyone different from you with a loose set-dressing of basic moral rules common across all human cultures.

There's nothing there to like, and plenty to hate.

People have been beating each other to death with rocks over gods & demons since we used barter, my guy. It's a problem inherent to tribalism. "Big money" doesn't get people burning their daughters and sisters as witches.

Hello! Big names & faces are essential to community growth, so this is good to hear.

Shoot him into space with no suit. Let his corpse be blasted apart by micrometeorites and his name forgotten.

Elon Musk deserves to die, and anyone who supports him deserves to die too. Full stop.

We live in a world where that man has 200 billion dollars, which he uses to spread hateful rhetoric and beat off to how great he is. With just 10% of that he could solve world hunger, homelessness, etc.

You cannot have a billion dollars and deserve to live. It is a fundamentally evil action to hoard that wealth, and it one absolutely punishable by death.

Can't believe there are people on the fediverse that balk at killing billionaires. There's literally no crime that is immoral if it's done to someone who has a billion dollars.

What the fuck? He literally inherited millions from his father's emerald mine. He actively removes jobs by buying up companies and then firing half the staff. SpaceX, Tesla, now Twitter. He literally makes his money off stock profiteering and fucking over others.

He's essentially a 21st century version of the mad inbred prince. He hasn't "worked hard" a single fucking second of his life, and has, in fact, had absolutely everything he has ever wanted since he was born.

I'm gonna shoot Elon Musk in the face with a rocket launcher specifically to spite you, you absolute bootlicker. Holy shit you are a new kind of pathetic.

I went and looked at tildes as a result of this, and it seems aggressively dead. Like, the fediverse is pretty dead and tildes makes it look positively thriving in comparison. Yeesh.

No shit you think it's fine, you're a techy linux weirdo. Good luck discussing like, musicals or tabletop roleplaying games or homemade moonshine or anything in that general vicinity of "niche" on here.

It's small enough to literally have zero posts of a variety of topics, and that number isn't improving. Get outside of your own circle every once in a while.

40-something sysadmins love both bicycles and video games, so I'm really not surprised. All of those "read-only" bits aren't here and they aren't moving, and nobody's making them because the moderation tools are awful. Kbin doesn't even have an API.

When I want to watch a play or musical, I generally look for expert reviews.

I generally look for the opinions of like, actual human beings with no skin in the game. Reviewers gotta say what they need to say to pay their bills. Reddit was great for stuff like that, or the semi-official subreddits of specific obscure headphone companies, vinyl record swapping, local-town-community type subreddits... Stuff this place seems like it will literally never have. It's a shame.

You're an idiot. Also a techy linux weirdo, so I'm not surprised. Did you know other people have hobbies that do not involve Linux, and would like to be able to discuss them without someone like you bending themselves into a pretzel over how the Fediverse has no room for filthy casuals who don't know what FOSS stands for. Gatekeep harder! This will surely save the fediverse from normies.

I don't actually have the guy, but from what I've read of his kit, is Chongyue kinda eh at best? Like, ooh big area damage, but the spin-up time and block-1, though...

Is he the weakest Sui sibling? He seems worse than Mountain.

Staves in general. Playing a spellcaster before they're available feels like absolute shit, so making little baby staves for 1st-level characters where none otherwise exist is good. I also don't make them necessarily staves, either. Sometimes you want to cast out of a cool grimoire or a mystic orb instead. Any sufficiently-magical one handed object is good enough for me.

I'm also way more lassez-faire about the economy. RAW gold-and-stuff-per-level is very stringent at maintaining a very straightforward difficulty curve and power progression, which does not mesh with the kind of campaign where players will drop everything to go buy a teahouse. Plus, the sheer bookkeeping of double-checking every random bandit and cultist they loot doesn't have too many valuables on them is a hassle I cannot fathom ever bothering with. They can have their three extra gold pieces here and there, I don't have the energy to give a shit.

Finally, uhhh spell traits I guess. You know there are like seven good arcane-and-cold spells in the entire system? Fuck it, if it's got an elemental trait and can be reasonably reflavoured, go for it. Paizo isn't going to print cool ice spells so I'll make them myself I guess. Fucking Paizo, those guys are assholes.
