RPG Ghetto / Re: Roger and Prez Televisions's Plot Hole

Oh well. At least they like my foul-mouthed inquisitor of an NPC. Anyway, I work this week on the day of the session, so I guess I'm off the hook for another 7 days. I'd better get my shit together.

Before I get to the action adventure stuff, I would prefer to have comprehensive Life Extension first.  Repairing old tissue, reinforcing bones, regulating blood pressurepreventing/reversing dementia-- Stuff like that.  Once my extended survival is taken care of, then you can start adding the bells and whistles, like... bells and whistles.

I am now picturing LMNO, the one-machine cyberband.  :aaa:

Well, it turns out I'm pretty bad at this method. I can't do the steps in order, because if I just concentrate on one thing at a time I get major writer's block. This is the third week in a row after "starting" the campaign that I haven't had anything to present to the players; I was able to hold off the inevitable with a pure-RP "prologue" session, but I know it's going nowhere at this rate. I think I'm gonna have to devise my own way of doing things.

So, if you're choosing to make a movie about a secret society that's supposed to protect the world from itself... and you set your movie in the country that built a huge empire for white people on the backs of brown folks and is still struggling with the fallout from that imperial era, and some of the ongoing sources of global conflict are a direct result of being dicks to the brown people who lived in one of your colonies... and you cast Samuel L Jackson as your villain... maybe you might want to cast at least one black kid as someone training for that secret society? Maybe?

What movie is this?

    I'm experiencing some mahor cognitive dissonance, and since I know that it's happening, I'm having fun seeing my brain jump around and act all twitchy.

    Basically, the sports team I've given my tribal allegience to has been accused of cheating, and there appears to be evidence to back it up.  Because I give weight to the concept of fairness, my morals are in conflict with my tribe.  It's really fascinating to see what's my mind's been doing.

    • Deny that it even happened. "There's no way they could have had the opportunity."
    • Even if it did happen, it's not cheating because it wasn't utilized. "The game was won on the ground, and Brady had one of his worst passing games all season."
    • We didn't win by cheating, the other team lost by poor play. "Their defense sucked, and their offensive line was non-existent."

    And in a very clever turnaround, pretending to appeal to fairness itself. "Did the officials check the other team's equipment too, or just ours?"

    The thing is, I know how this works, and in all likelyhood even if they are found guilty of cheating, the emotional tribal affiliation will beat out the intellectual morality, and I'll go on being a fan.  Brains are weird.

At the end of the day, it's just a bunch of dudes in plastic armor running on a field.

This is where I fall on this issue too.

I JUST FEEL LIKE WHEN WE'RE ALL HURTLING TOWARD OBLVION BOTH INDIVIDUALLY AND, FURTHER ALONG, AS A SPECIES, WHY DO WE BOTHER DOING ANYTHING AT ALL
When you put it that way, why wouldn't we give a shit about football? If anything we care about is a distraction, distraction becomes the single most important thing there is.

*squints*

*hand you glasses*

It's some form of humanoid I think sir.

Its behavior is most illogical, Captain. It seems to be happy to be here.

What's cool is that even if a woman spag like that is one in a million, there are SEVEN THOUSAND of them out there.

newsfeed

It would need to be corrected to reflect the correct math, which would be fourteen thousand if we are expanding the search for EOC's lifemate to men.

I'm not sure how EOC feels about that, though.

I think it's more that the original figure should've been 3,500, but that doesn't roll off the tongue as well.

The latest "thing" on tumblr is godkin.

BRB, just drowning my sorrows with a litre of vodka...

No, that's fucking excellent. The world is not going to be a gentle place for these children.

This is why I don't try to argue with them.

There's really no reason to.

The way I tend to see it is that childhood, and its accompanying unrealistic/idealistic/fantasy phase, is currently extended in privileged societies to about the age of 25. The bad news is that the whole extended childhood thing is irritating and obnoxious. The good news is that apparently the prefrontal cortex continues to develop until they adopt their adult roles in life, so it's perfectly plausible that they may end up smarter and with better foresight than previous generations.

Either way, most of them, by 30, will be embarrassed about the way they thought and behaved at 20, much as most of us at 20 were embarrassed by our 15-year-old selves.

That's easy for you to say. These people aren't your peers.  :argh!:

 :lulz: That's gotta suck.

No shit, I dated a guy once who panicked and broke down into tears because he lost his phone and it had photos of food that he'd planned to upload on Instagram. No other reason. Just that.
