Sounds like a hoot! Looking forward to your upcoming trip to Hogtown!

That's on the bounce again.  I have to go there, but my schedule is in flux.  I now have to go to Portland again in December, Germany again in January, and Houston for half of February.  Then I have Hamilton AND Toronto (Pickering, to be exact), and Boston that will be jammed in there somewhere.

Holy shit, Pickering? I'm living in Toronto right now. I should see about paying you a visit when you're in town, if you don't mind. When do you have it planned?

Not sure yet.  I have business there sometime after the new year, and I'm related to damn near everyone in the province, so I expect I'll burn some vacation time.

Ok. Well, keep me filled in. It'd be fun to hang out with a Holy Man™.

Why did we want them back in the Union again?

Um.

Somewhere there's a whole thread about this sort of thing. Stereotyping "those people", etc.
yea, in retrospect, that was a bit over the line, wasnt it? :sad:
Though, on a quick tangent, i am rather curious what would happen if alaska or texas really did secede? how would america be different without a bible belt?

Not sure.  Wouldn't miss them, though.

I just wish there was a means by which to evict Texas.

I wish we could give the whole SW region back to Mexico, just because that would be fucking FUNNY.

I wager after a bit of sputtering they'd just start hating everyone north of the border.

Corrective rape is a thing. My father's family is fond of it as a threat, though I've only heard of two cousins it was 'hypothetically' applied to.

Gross.

True. And one thing I will say is that it largely seems to be for visible differentiation, rather than blatant sexualization. It isn't exactly plausible that women would consistently wear armour shaped so that it channels blows inward and effectively forms a blade pointed directly at their hearts, but at the same time I think if the armour were truly practical, players would complain that their customization choices were being invalidated or something. Hell, I feel that way myself when I spend hours designing a character's face, only for it to be obscured by their helmet or hood for the rest of the game. Besides, people don't complain about the flat cuirasses on male armour, but that's pretty unrealistic too.

To be honest, the whole "post-apocalyptic" thing is pretty much a libertarian masturbatory fantasy anyway.  Government completely collapses tomorrow, a fresh slate upon which the new order can be built.  An interim where men are men, women are women and we all live in bunkers with our automatic weaponry, relying on our wits, selfishness and huge gold reserves to survive.

Because that's totally likely to happen.  It's not like governments around the world have continuity plans which stretch right down to the individual town level, and that should something happen to cause central government to lose control, that local government, law enforcement, local military deployments and similar will step into the breach.  And those plans are pretty damn detailed, and have quite extensive chains of command.

Eh, I could see the whole post-apocalyptic scenario happening in a very localized sense. I mean, small towns fall apart all the time even with a functioning federal infrastructure, for simple economic reasons. And then you have places like Detroit and Camden, New Jersey. But yeah, even then guns and bunkers would be incredibly unhelpful, and any inhabitants would likely die off at an alarming rate. About the closest I think we could get to the libertarian fantasy is a quasi-feudal state ruled by warlords and fundamentalists in the vein of Somalia. And unless they're willing to go out, organize(not likely) and raid farmers for their crops, these gun fetishists are ending up at the bottom of the shitheap. That's not even getting into the practical issue of whether there'd be enough unprotected farmland to survive on with banditry for a year, or how long it'd take law enforcement and military to start cleaning them up with overwhelming superiority in firepower, discipline, morale, numbers, and supplies.

It appears we have an infestation of kittens. Damn things are everywhere.

OH MY GOD

SO CUTE!

Yeah, and he's not my kitty.  :cry:

A friend of mine's taking care of a litter of kittens from a shelter, and that's one of them. Soon she'll be giving them all away. The one on my arm in that pic already has a home.

Well, I guess we're not as much better than America as I'd thought. Not even a week after the fact and my grandfather(normally noted for his moderate political views) is calling for a dictatorship. In the States, it took 3,000 deaths and two months for people to brush uncomfortably close to that conclusion, but I guess for some Canadians a single death and a couple of days are good enough.

Humans are stupid.  It doesn't matter where they're from.

Humans are also geniuses.  It doesn't matter where they're from.

Yeah. I guess Canada has a stronger exceptionalist streak than America ever did, and I bought into it as hard as anyone else. I know better now.

It's easy to feel superior living next to the United States.

At least until you start reading the Canadian history they didn't bother teaching anyone in high school.

They covered residential schools. Can you give me some other examples? I think I should look into this.

I dunno, that ebony boobplate looks pretty impractical to me. Though at least it does cover the whole body.
