Bigotry is abound, apprently, within these boards. There is a level of supposed tolerance I will have no part of. Obviously, it seems to be well-embraced here. I have finally found something more fucked up than what I'm used to. Congrats. - Ruby
Okay, so let me steer the topic a bit. How do you think Steampunk is going to influence society, if at all?
People like me, who have a genuine attraction to things made of brass and with little clicking mechanisms, will pick up on certain aspects of it very quickly. However, genuinely ass-slappin' awesome Steampunk things like that writing ball will quickly prove too expensive, and many people will resort to the cheap shit that will miraculously appear out of China. Then I personally will become disillusioned and resort to "Stonepunk," toting a flint spear and wrapped in animal hides.
