Or, don't, because they stand pretty well as individual poems.

Thanks! Some really are just more like structured fragments of thought than actual poems, but I consider several of them complete. Others I might yet expand on. Poems are something that I do, or perhaps poems happen to me, but I'm no poet.


Naw, that does make you a poet, especially if poems happen to you and feel you need to keep them.

This particular individual(though not necessarily representative of anyone else) openly stated her intention to stifle it. It's depressing as hell.

What you have there is tumblr, Sanders groupies, and my mom.
You bring up Tumblr, do you think that the medium in which these discussions happen matter? does this method just not work on the internet, since people feel less inhibited to be assholes there?

The fart blanket occurs at any time in which only one opinion can be expressed.  It is best described by tumblr, upon which only comments allowed by the blog owner see daylight.  Any time that occurs, IRL, internet, whatever, it becomes a downward spiral of extremism.

For non-SJW types doing this, go to a Sanders page on FB and express any sort of opinion that doesn't involve Sanders sweeping the nation in both the primary and the general election.

Wear a hard hat.

I'm going to have to disagree with your assertion that only comments allowed by the blog owner will see daylight. Tumblr isn't set up that. Once a post is made on Tumblr anyone who reblogs that post can make whatever comments they want, and can currently edit the text of the original and any other reblogged comments. It's a fart blanket because it's easy for anyone who doesn't make the original post to only see comments made by blogs they follow, or those comments that are being targeted for a call-out.

Tumblr is like Twitter but with no character limit.

I'm really nervous so I ate some oranges for breakfast.

Do I hear the impending onslaught of a MOTHERFUCKING

So, tonight, while bartending, a wine glass flew off its rack to the floor, untouched. I was six feet away, and nobody else was behind the bar. The four people sitting at the bar all saw the same thing I did, apparently.

Not suggesting anything other than that it was fucking weird.

Could have been internal stress within the glass releasing abruptly, breaking the glass and causing it to leap from the rack. Spontaneous fracture happens frequently in bar glassware, because it is typically soda-lime glass, not always annealed well, used frequently, and typically subjected to high temperatures during washing. This, along with daily taps and bangs, gradually introduces additional stress into the glass, along with stress that was present at manufacture due to poor annealing processes, and glasses can abruptly release that stress in the form of kinetic energy, jumping at fracture or even exploding. The thicker parts of the glass, such as stem or base, are both more likely to build stress and capable of releasing more energy at fracture; in the upper part of the glass you're more likely to see a spontaneous circular crack.

But what if...ALIENS?

MY SON IS COMING HOME ON FRIDAY NIGHT!

:banana:

I have him for 14 days, then I don't see him again for a year.

Yayyyyy! Except for the not seeing him again for a year part. But that's what you get when you make a grown-up.

Yes, the poor bastard will be stuck in Naples, Italy for a year.

All those Italians, everywhere. the horror :scared:

The idea of "leadership feats" kind of intrigues me. Not got anything particular in mind, but perhaps they could effect tolerance for abusive NPC uses.

No, there's a specific feat called Leadership, and it's broken as hell. It basically lets you play an additional party member, though at most it can be up to 2 levels lower than your own, and whether you or the GM actually controls it is a matter of houseruling. I'm guessing Roger prefers to treat them as semi-independent NPCs, though.

Considering pre-WotC D&D allowed you to gain henchmen as defacto lower level PCs plus however many hirelings you could afford plus what ever your class' name level followers, if any, were, the feat is less broken since you have choose it to gain followers and a cohort.

"So you fucking think fry cooks don't deserve a higher minimum wage?"
Yes. I do.
No one is entitled to anything.
"Rights" are the currency of implied threats.
They are not something that exists in nature.
I'm not saying this as some executive trying to justify why I'm much better than everyone else or deserve higher pay than a burger-flipper.
I'm saying this as a minimum wage-earning cashier at a gas station who takes advantage of welfare, well aware that it could disappear at any time and I could starve to death because I'm not entitled to anything everyone else insists they are entitled to.

:tldr:

All of that sounds great except for Carvin' Marvin.

Because it came outta my game, while I was working for Kenzer.  And it still makes me laugh.  I can post the write up here.

That's really cool. And terrifying.

Deckard: Youíre in a desert walking along in the sand when all of the sudden you look down, and you see a tortoise, itís crawling toward you. You reach down, you flip the tortoise over on it's back. The tortoise lays on it's back, it's belly baking in the hot sun, beating it's legs trying to turn it'self over, but it canít, not without your help. But youíre not helping. Why is that?


What the everloving shit?!

Who is this Deckard person?  A quick google of the name didn't lead me to anything I would immediately connect.
Rick Deckard, using the Kobayashi Maru to find out if Harry Potter is the Kwisatz Haderach.

Was he?

No, it turns out we all were, all along thanks to the Power of Friendship.
