Re: Is it time to make Porn illegal

Also no one should be forced to work anyway, unemployment benefits shouldn't require taking a job.

Re: Is it time to make Porn illegal

I'll ignore some of the silliness in Octavious using a made up story from the British Press that never happened and never was going to happen, and address the broader point about the sex industry being different. I'm willing to admit that yes, the sex industry is "different" in some nebulous liberal...

Re: Is it time to make Porn illegal

Look, I like freedom, but is there a single good thing the porn industry has ever done ever? The joke during the old feminist sex wars was that in Porn you can see women lawyers, doctors, and CEOs, and they even get to end the movie with a happy ending. That's something. I'm literally not trolling ...

What if I win the diplomacy game?

And by win I don't mean exhaust all the other players to the point of a cesseation of the game.

I mean coming back from a 1910 position with two units to retaking all my home centers and then taking the fight into Russian cities until Russia is defeated.

Re: Should I boycott Wizards of the Coast product line

Yeah, same system. I can understand the appeal, even though I didn't find much value in it and ended up running the game much more traditionally instead. Powered by Apoclaypse games just hit an uncanny valley for me where it has too many rules to actually be system free and unobtrusive, but way too ...

Re: Should I boycott Wizards of the Coast product line

The whole layout of all the core books gives the impression they loaded all the chapters into a blunderbuss and fired them into the air, then bound them together in the order they landed. That's just accepted practice in Tabletop games, to be fair. I haven't checked out the warhammer book, but I ca...

Play world of darkness instead- embrace the nineties


Revenant: The Ravishing was my favourite.

I use so many house rules, I just use the Zombie: The Putrescence name instead because that edition was more popular where I am

Re: Should I boycott Wizards of the Coast product line

WotC in third edition decided to make DND the even more biggest name in town by deciding to legalize other writers to make gamebooks that use DND 3rd edition mechanics without paying WotC for the right to use those mechanics. They brought that back for fifth edition (I at least don't think 4th editi...

Re: Are female superhero movies unpopular because…

It is absolutely nuts how anyone non-white playing the villain role is being seen an racist at the moment. There was recently outrage over the Netflix series Wednesday because two of the mean kids were black...and that must have been driven by racism: https://nypost.com/2022/11/30/tim-burtons-wedne...

Re: should you help the homeless if they want to stay homeless

As dramatic some situations regarding housing might be, specially during economic crisis, most functional people are able to find solutions in their "support networks" even if they mean a huge downgrade compared to their previous conditions. Most long-term homeless people became so after years of a...

Re: Video Games

Everyone has nice things to say about Witcher 3- I'll have to give it a shot sometime.

I really liked the first game but I thought making a sequel was a little much- though I've heard both witcher 2 and 3 are better then the first.

Let's chat about something a little more fun- what video games have y'all been enjoying? I've been going through Bayonetta 3, now that my mail order finally got in. It's been fun, if not as good as the first game. Also had some fun with an emulated copy of Valkyrie Profile. It's shockingly beautiful...

Now, if we want to just say "I feel like things are bad for me" then sure, cool, that sucks for you.

I will say though, in a ver...

Re: Why does god always whisper?

Most religions (at least Jews/Christians/Muslims/Mormons) believe in a holy book where people can get their communications from God. No priestly class needed to read those books. I know we're all picking on this, but also How many people outside the priestly class could read books period? Literacy ...
