Re: Election 2020 - Here we go again

News outlets have called it for Warnock; latest info I'm seeing is that they haven't called the other race yet but Ossoff is up and I wouldn't expect too many people to vote split-ticket under the circumstances (though it's possible Perdue gets enough of an incumbent advantage to make the differenc...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is one of the most brilliantly designed games I've ever played, and a 100% perfect example of what I'm talking about when I say art is the use of a medium to tell a theme or story in a way that wouldn't work in any other medium. When you have a bunch of kids getting in power ...

Re: Inspirational tales of Glorious Unfettered Capitalism

read the second paragraph again i guess i'm a little tired of hearing "there is no possibility of ameloriative reform within capitalism; the only solution is to overthrow it" from people who held a gun once and it was when their dad took them to the shooting range when they were 13 and the...

Re: Inspirational tales of Glorious Unfettered Capitalism

It's less about that (it's about 20 years old and the author leaves it as an implied endgame) than it is about explaining the legal status of water in the US and the ways in which various players operate within that framework. It's still relevant despite its age because the laws haven't changed. Rea...

Re: Inspirational tales of Glorious Unfettered Capitalism

Maybe conceptually, but given how the private sector has handled the distribution and safety of food, shelter, medicine, waste management, education, rehabilitation, and internet access, I don't exactly... have confidence in the idea. But that's how we do it now anyway. Water isn't held in public t...

Re: Inspirational tales of Glorious Unfettered Capitalism

Unless capitalism is going to be overthrown tomorrow it is extremely, extremely good for water to be assigned financial value and traded the same as any other commodity. The most committed conservation advocates you've never heard of have been calling for it for decades. you know how wasteful agricu...

Re: Noise We Enjoys

Add Frank Sinatra to the list of artists I developed a huge new appreciation for when high on edibles. Has there ever been anyone with as good a sense of pitch as this asshole? Every single note is correct within a Mhz. A perfectly tuned french horn of a voice. It's a good thing he was a jazz singer...

Re: Election 2020 - Here we go again

Yeah, that's right, but honestly I really liked Biden's student debt plan - I thought he had the best, most well-thought-out one in the field, contra the Sanders/Warren plans that were one-time jubilees combined with a free undergrad plan that would have just seen grad school get more expensive, mak...

Re: Election 2020 - Here we go again

yeah, I hope I did not come across as saying we shouldn't do it nah, I didn't read it that way back then. It's the same as when they made epic Mounts cheaper when TBC came out. I had just finished grinding 8 hours a day in AV for months to hit rank 11 and get my cat, and then the announcement comes...

This is the only place in my life I feel safe pointing out that Nibelheim being the total boonies is canon, per Zack and Cloud's introductory conversation outside Modeoheim in Crisis Core.

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

I tried reading white fragility and I am now interested in hearing the experiences of others who grew up in hardline Catholic communities because it was actually triggering and not in the way the author intended
