Yeah. It's not me.

Alright, guys. I'm a few hours away from dinner.

2018-05-24 19:12:05 UTC

I have 2 undocumented votes for searing

grill, cut up, put curry sauce/curry ketchup on it, serve with french fries

2018-05-24 19:14:46 UTC

Can't. Too many carbohydrates. I'm trying to keep this keto

2018-05-24 19:14:51 UTC

Well

2018-05-24 19:14:59 UTC

"Both in and out of character I think that all property is theft," we know Kotaku us shit but...wut

2018-05-24 22:00:29 UTC

What kind of D&D group switches DMs at the midpoint of a campaign?

2018-05-24 22:01:09 UTC

And how can an entire D&D group not establish the definition of theft?

2018-05-24 22:01:20 UTC

Lmao

2018-05-24 22:01:33 UTC

Right? Like, without property there IS no theft

2018-05-24 22:01:46 UTC

...Technically

2018-05-24 22:02:20 UTC

I mean, I think in context that really means private property

2018-05-24 22:02:26 UTC

I haven't seen a group play more than a few days without beating several dead horses into the ground on trivial matters, this could def been one of 'em.

2018-05-24 22:02:30 UTC

But I wonder if they would let me chill in their house uninvited

2018-05-24 22:03:41 UTC

Maybe you misunderstand property in relation to economy. No one *wants* to give up anything willingly.. they'd rather have it all. But sometimes you must.

2018-05-24 22:04:22 UTC

In order to get better things you'll like more, per say

2018-05-24 22:04:35 UTC

I think the dumbest moral decision my group's been presented with was the time I asked the party to vote on whether to unkill someone

2018-05-24 22:05:15 UTC

And the consequences therein.

2018-05-24 22:10:47 UTC

holy shit

that was painful to read

2018-05-24 22:14:38 UTC

especially when she wrote one of the characters was inspired by Zero-Two from DITF.

just... why? It's seems so out of place. poor/lazy character design is a huge peeve of mine
is it just a pink-haired girl? there's no giant robots in dnd so there's not much you can carry over from there

2018-05-24 22:16:51 UTC

Poor/ lazy writing is all sjws have. It's part of the reason their comics don't sell.

2018-05-24 22:17:06 UTC

2018-05-24 22:41:07 UTC

also i would probably only play with this group if i had cyanide on hand

2018-05-24 22:44:28 UTC

i dont think changing dms mid game is a bad thing, i mean it gives new experince to an upcoming dm which is always good. at worst its unorthidox. some things not to do though
play as assholes
be an sjw
play characters from another game in D&D
side with the villian, then try to kill the villian, then side with the ok people, then think about killing the ok people

2018-05-24 22:45:07 UTC

I dunno, looks like it would be pretty fun to mess with them and explain why nobles should be able to charge tolls for a bridge that they most likely funded/built and maintain

2018-05-24 22:46:06 UTC

of course, could just end in being kicked out of the game if the GM's a cuck

2018-05-24 23:02:58 UTC

actually, i think this is a perfect metaphor for how things would and do look under socialism and communism "You goup of people! these people are your evil oppressors, lets kill them! *kills people* Oh my god! these people are evil people too! *kills people* Perfect, now we have utopia!"

2018-05-24 23:09:52 UTC

well except the times it didint happin like that. more so ends that way with communism than socialism as well

funny how popular anime is with sjws, despite it almost always being completely antithetical to their beliefs.

2018-05-25 00:34:15 UTC

especially My Hero Academia, which is basically pro-capitalist propaganda

does this include groping groins to help figure out if they have raped someone recently?

Frankly in London they had so much cuts in police force that they dont have ppl to do those body searches

After 6 in the afternoon you will not meet patroling officier unless you call for him/her

2018-05-25 16:05:15 UTC

@zutt wouldn't be an issue if you didn't need 6-10 cops to subdue 1 guy with a knife.

2018-05-25 18:01:09 UTC

Hmm.

2018-05-25 18:02:10 UTC

@.B Think about it.
Everybody in the show has a super power-- but not everyone is equal. Some powers are arguably better than others, but that doesn't stop anyone from making the most of what they have.

And the show does strongly emphasize competition. Most shounen anime is all about cooperating in a group; "power of friendship" and all that stuff, and bringing everybody up.

Hero Academia on the other hand is all about personal growth, and competing with your peers, be them friend or foe.

2018-05-25 18:37:26 UTC

@Aktriaz Every shounen has healthy competition. I don't think Boku no Hero stands out from the big 3 in format tbh

2018-05-25 18:37:48 UTC

I thought you were gonna comment on heros getting salaries

LOl

2018-05-27 18:54:47 UTC

context matters though.

2018-05-27 18:57:18 UTC

The context was crystal clear. A reporter said something to the effect of 'rich people want to suppress the media' and Elon replied that the rich people own the media, implying that they don't want to suppress what they own. One would have to be intentionally dishonest to construe Musk's comment as some sort of anti-Semitic dog-whistle.

2018-05-27 18:57:46 UTC

exactly

2018-05-27 18:57:51 UTC

I mean, the immediately preceding tweet in the chain referred explicitly to the rich.

2018-05-27 18:58:14 UTC

Well, more precisely "powerful people".

2018-05-27 18:59:26 UTC

It's absolutely insane that all Musk has to do is point out the fact that the mainstream media is doing a shitty job and that the average citizen knows it, and BOOM he's a crypto-nazi.

2018-05-27 19:00:32 UTC

I don't think we're going to be able to reason our way out of this mess. The most reasonable people we have are getting smeared as nazis just for speaking up.

2018-05-27 19:02:45 UTC

There's been a little give & take in the culture war over the past 2-3 years, the battle-lines have moved a little back and forth, but ultimately there has been no significant progress. The hard progressive left still has a complete stranglehold on the media. All forms.

2018-05-27 19:04:25 UTC

hey, he said something that could be interpreted as anti-semitic if you remove all context, of course he is a far right lunatic - enough smearing?

2018-05-27 19:05:14 UTC

No, even if you discard all context there is nothing about the words he typed which has any anti-Semitic message.

2018-05-27 19:05:53 UTC

Any anti-Semitic notions about what he said have to be inserted by the reader.

2018-05-27 19:06:25 UTC

the left wing idiots are currently doing a great job making the right wing idiots look good. there was a time when that happened before.

2018-05-27 19:06:40 UTC

They WANT Elon Musk to be a nazi so they can discard his legitimate criticism.

2018-05-27 19:07:40 UTC

A big part of this is that Universities only teach deconstructionist approaches to literature and analysis.

2018-05-27 19:08:13 UTC

a big part of it is that universities don't teach how to use your brain

2018-05-27 19:08:27 UTC

And from a deconstructionist approach you can make any text say anything you want so long as it is a) interesting and b) permits you to wield power.

2018-05-27 19:08:49 UTC

it's more a "shut off the brain and repeat what i say" approach

So, this is an interesting problem. How to balance the fact that a pregnant woman basically cannot work for more or less at least a year to be safe, with keeping birth rates sustainable. I mean, I guess a negative birth rate would fix stagnant wages because suddenly jobs will be plentiful and your need to compete for labor more.

2018-05-28 00:30:07 UTC

How to balance the issue of everyone should have a right to work with doubling the workforce pool without making it impossible to live on one wage as a family.

i believe colonialism is still legal

2018-05-28 11:38:03 UTC

And somehow trying to say Israel has slaves? πŸ€”

2018-05-28 11:39:35 UTC

nah i think its a denoucement of Israeli sovereignty

2018-05-28 11:45:01 UTC

welp i was wrong, it was about israel slavery

2018-05-28 11:46:23 UTC

I just find it weird that jews criticize white people for Apartheid, Slavery and colonialism when their country is doing all those things right now.

2018-05-28 11:47:20 UTC

Just for the record I don't think slavery is ever a good idea.

2018-05-28 11:47:29 UTC

everyone critizises white people for appartheir slavery and colonialism,

people also think American slavery was the first and only kind

2018-05-28 11:47:43 UTC

people are stupid :p

2018-05-28 11:48:03 UTC

and slavery is only good if you're building pyramids 😎 no Pyramids, no slavery

2018-05-28 11:50:15 UTC

I disagree with you there. The Egyptians could have built the pyramids with seasonal labour conscription like the the Inca did. They didn't need to bring in black slaves.

2018-05-28 11:50:35 UTC

i thought the jews were the slaves πŸ€”

2018-05-28 11:50:40 UTC

Wonder what they base their definition of slavery on. The US is just three spaces below Israel.

2018-05-28 11:51:02 UTC

I'm talking about most of the slaves who were black.

2018-05-28 11:51:14 UTC

And Australia ranks 153 which is pretty close to Israel too.

2018-05-28 11:51:36 UTC

well not gonna argue with the specific numbers of egyptian slaves,

But no, Pyramids just need that nice ol' slave labor touch i say πŸ˜‰

2018-05-28 11:52:22 UTC

I just think using cheap foreign labour is retarded.

2018-05-28 11:52:57 UTC

Israel has a border wall with Egypt now which reduced migrant crossings to like 12 per year.

2018-05-28 11:53:03 UTC

cheap? son, slavery is FREE πŸ˜„

2018-05-28 11:53:23 UTC

Are they counting cheap labor as slavery?

2018-05-28 11:53:40 UTC

you force them to work, and they feed themselves with whatever is left after THEY produce it and you took waht you want

2018-05-28 11:54:13 UTC

CreativeRealms slavery in Israel is more sex slavery than forced labour type slavery.

2018-05-28 11:55:06 UTC

but that happens in every country

2018-05-28 11:55:25 UTC

```According to researchers Andrew Guth, Robyn Anderson, Kasey Kinnard and Hang Tran, they find the Index's methods reveal weaknesses and they raise questions about its replicability and validity. They have stated that the publicity given to the Index is leading to the use of its data can lead to inaccurate policy formulation and methods used in the Index are inadequate.[7]

Some countries, for which no data were available, were given the same rate as countries that were judged to be similar. For example, prevalence rates for Britain were applied to Ireland and Iceland, and those for America to several western European nations, including Germany. This form of extrapolation has attracted some criticism.[8]

Scholar Anne Gallagher said the Global Slavery Index is based on flawed data. Gallagher writes "the basic unit of measurement of β€œmodern slavery” is flawed: the definition is self-created and, bizarrely, changes from one year to the next."[9]

Alexis A. Aronowitz called the Index to be "terribly flawed" and points out that:

"The index is based on mix of sources: population surveys in a few countries; fuzzy estimates by governmental agencies or NGOs; stories in the media; and local experts. For nations lacking any such source, the index creators engage in an "extrapolation" exercise -- they simply apply an estimate from on nation to "similar" nations lacking such estimates."[10]
```

2018-05-28 11:55:58 UTC

The thing is you eith treat them well enough so the slave population can reproduce themsleves or you don't so you have to get more slaves.

2018-05-28 11:56:51 UTC

can't have them get too numerous though, they might rise up and rebel, better just keep the majority on a tight leash

2018-05-28 11:57:53 UTC

According to the study from 2016 Australia ranks worse in slave ownership than Israel. πŸ€”

2018-05-28 11:58:44 UTC

US also ranks worse in 2016.

2018-05-28 12:02:16 UTC

think you're misreading that Creative, higher rank is better on that index

2018-05-28 12:02:50 UTC

Oh yeah.

2018-05-28 12:02:52 UTC

My bad.

2018-05-28 12:03:17 UTC

On Wiki it was the opposite.

2018-05-28 12:03:28 UTC

still, Israel is doing way better than much all muslim countries πŸ˜›
