Kiddo is getting a bone marrow biopsy Thursday.  Here's hoping it turns out normal.

Here's hoping.   :)

Also, Cain, how accurate do you find this to be?

You guys have probably exposed yourself to more Qanon stuff than I have. I've heard of them before, probably here, but this was the first of their propaganda I have listened to, and I have to say I found it pretty hilarious, but I think 13 minutes of listening to a guy do 4th grade math problems and turn them into sentences is probably just about my limit.

QAnon is crazytown, and crazytown is always the same.

The true (((secret))) meaning of "smocking" according to Qanon.

Sorry, couldn't stand to bear Trump be called "the maestro" unironically any more so I had to shut it off.


We seem to be having a bit of a revolution over here. Spirits are high, people are cavorting in the streets, policemen are having shit thrown at them, politicians are being told in no uncertain terms where they can stick it. The final straw was the "slave law", which allows employers to force workers to do overtime while also allowing them to pay for that overtime up to three years after it is actually worked. But the bastards also plan to pass another law on Wednesday which will kinda put an end to Hungary having anything remotely like an independent judiciary. The dance continues.

The other day I was in conversation with some fellow dissenters and I said:

There's this guy in America, he used to hate my guts, I think now he just thinks I'm an assburgered silly cunt, in fact, there's an entire bunch of people over there who think I'm an annoying, narcissistic, attention-whoring simpleton, but I've learnt a great deal from them. His most important teaching, and I'm afraid I may not be quoting verbatim, was something like "if we agree on 30 percent of important things, we may not be able to work together. If we agree on 60-70 percent of important things, we're made for each other, let's stand up to power together. If you think we agree on 100% of important things, go see a psychiatrist!".

So there goes (and I think it's quite funny): I am grateful to you, guys, and I am particularly and personally grateful to you, Roger. And there's very little you can do about it!

Thank you.

We'll see about that:rogpipe:

...yes.  I.. uh... yes, exactly so.  I have a co-worker, much the same thing.

Have a nice day.

See?  No vowels at all.  :lulz:

Purchased Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Looks like it could be what NWN was originally promised to be, before Bioware decided having a "plot" or "engaging characters" or "workable tools for controlling a party" was too much work and just decided to hawk the Aurora Toolset.  Well, with Pathfinder rules instead of 3rd ed., but we all know Pathfinder is D&D 3.75 Edition.  Also with kingdom management, for those Civilization fans out there.

Anyway, give me some OP Pathfinder builds.  By all accounts the game hews very closely to the PnP version, so I assume meta builds in PnP would work fine in the game, for the most part.

The pencil and paper version of that was fun, but too complicated.  It was more or less written for a computer.

It won't matter.  The reason the last few of us don't bother posting creative work here anymore, is that poptard-style trolling makes it tiresome.

If not here, then where?

Like we'd actually tell the trolls?

Curious.  The context of your post belies its content.  Your signature contains a link to your RPG-related blog, which is, generally speaking, the sort of thing I was asking about.

Yeah, well, I don't actually give a shit about trolls finding my blog. What are they going to do? Post mean things about how I have badwrongfun in D&D?

So what's your stake in all this?

He's Welsh.

Ah, the ever amusing, "If I'm going down, you're all coming with me" approach.

More to the point:

Kushner had made clear to other White House aides that he would support Christie being appointed to the job and that he appreciated the former governorís work on overhauling federal prison sentencing rules, a top priority for the president and his son-in-law.

A 7 year old girl died from dehydration in Border Patrol's custody.  She had been separated for her father, and kept with them for in excess of 8 hours before she was admitted for medical treatment.  She, along with several others who were picked up had not had food or water for several days.

DHS is refusing to say if she was given food or water while she was in their custody, which of course means they didnt.

She was symptomatic for 90 minutes before she was given any treatment at all.

One particularly telling bit is this:

CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan testified before Congress on Tuesday that the border stations were not built to handle children. In November, over 25,000 immigrants crossed as part of a family with children and over 5,200 children crossed without a guardian.

"Our infrastructure is incompatible with this reality. Our border patrol stations and ports of entry were built to mostly handle male single adults in custody. Not families or children," said McAleenan.

But what happened is this:  Some half-trained jackass didn't feel like dealing with a puking kid.  So the kid died.

So, Kelly is leaving, and Trump's 1st choice for a replacement backed out.  And his 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th.  :lulz:




Apparently, Trump is going to try to hire his son-in-law.

I was impressed.  Kevin is every bit as smart as Billy, he just has never had to use that intelligence until now.

Me:  "So we removed everything that could add zinc to the water, and the alkalinity is still falling.  And it IS a flocculation effect...There is no source of zinc, but there is still zinc."

Kevin:  "Where the hell is it coming from?"

Me:  "Nowhere.  This is clearly the result of black magic."

Kevin:  "If it was black magic, it would affect the tap water as well as the pools, and only the pools are affected."

Me:  "It's highly *specific* black magic."

Kevin:  (lightbulb visibly goes on) 

Me:  "What?"

Kevin:  "Isn't suntan lotion based on zinc oxide and titanium oxide?"

Me:  "..."

Kevin:  "What?"

Me:  "You just got a paid day off and $50 at Barnes and Noble."

Kevin:  "That's more...generous than you normally are."

Me:  "You don't normally think, though."

Kevin:  "WTF?"

Me:  "I feel that sort of thing should be encouraged.  Also, this is gonna burn Billy's biscuits."

Kevin:  "How come I just got a paid day off and $50 and I still feel insulted?"

Me:  "It's the glory of the free market, Billy."

Kevin:  "KEVIN."

Me:  "Whatever."

Now a person with a 20 year green card can be deported for a simple disorderly person's offense (This category is not even misdemeanor-level).
