For the first time in 5 years, I have my whole family together again.  :banana:


Yeah, it was 5 years ago that Ian went into the marines, if you can believe it

That makes me feel old.


I'm glad that 2016 hasn't taken Lewis Black as of this point.

There's that and then there's what Mike Rowe says in counterpoint.


“Hi Jeremy, Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate it. I also share your concern for our country, and agree wholeheartedly that every vote counts. However, I’m afraid I can’t encourage millions of people whom I’ve never met to just run out and cast a ballot, simply because they have the right to vote. That would be like encouraging everyone to buy an AR-15, simply because they have the right to bear arms. I would need to know a few things about them before offering that kind of encouragement. For instance, do they know how to care for a weapon? Can they afford the cost of the weapon? Do they have a history of violence? Are they mentally stable? In short, are they responsible citizens?”

He goes on to say


Like all rights, the right to vote comes with some responsibilities, but let’s face it – the bar is not set very high. If you believe aliens from another planet walk among us, you are welcome at the polls. If you believe the world is flat, and the moon landing was completely staged, you are invited to cast a ballot. Astrologists, racists, ghost-hunters, sexists, and people who rely upon a Magic 8 Ball to determine their daily wardrobe are all allowed to participate. In fact, and to your point, they’re encouraged.”

The link is worth reading. The statement is not all that much longer but he proceeds to emphasize responsibility and education. Can't say I don't love my Lewis Black.

So like blah blah blah freedom of speech blah blah he can express his opinion, but man does Rowe get on my fucking nerves. Either the constitution means something or doesn't. If you aren't willing to help some asshole to the polls simply because they are opposed to your politics you are also an asshole. You're starting to get into fascism when you don't want the wrong sorts of people to vote, whether that's a minority group or idiots that think water has memory.

Hey, you know what's better than a great bigass bear on the mountain?

A mated pair of bigass bears on the mountain.  :banana:

The Holy Man class gets attack bears now. I have a barely formed "Final Fantasy" like rpg video game in my head from since the Jehovabubba incident and the Holy Man gets attack fauna under a power called Holy. Thinking angry weasels, supply pigeons, and now attack bears.

I'm trying to flesh out the basic rules from the card game in my head right now though. I'm most of the way through a play description and hope to have it roughed out to post before I flesh out more cards so it won't be without context.

All I'm saying is, nobody better make fun of my hair.

We must remember, however, that the Word of God, which is alive and active, is also the mighty channel the Spirit of God uses to bring men out of darkness... yadayadayada

After this point it's all Jesusprop, but here's an essential point as I see it. The Holy Fear is a sacred state and dispensation to dispense The Fear a major "perk" of the whole Holy Man gig. There was a time when the rest of nature was a sufficient means to this vital end. It kept humans healthy and REASONABLE to never know when 1200 lbs of fuzzy deathbeast could become a thing at any given time.

But once things got all "civil" the need for supplemental Holy dispensation became evident, thus the Holy Man was set apart to be a reminder to folks of what they had to look forward to going back to if they fuck up, which they always do without healthy dosages of The Fear.

This is why I, as your Holy Man™, have decided to go back to fundamentals.  By which I mean bears.

I think you mean....nope not going to do it....I must resist the pun....


I am posting naked.  While sitting in a leather office chair.  I am afraid to move, as I seem to have bonded with the furniture.  Fred is on the bookshelf giving me the hairy eyeball and singing Gregorian chants in his little lizard voice.  Everything is fine.  I am fine.  Ia ftang Cthulu.  I mean that in the best possible way.

There's no way this is really Roger, he would never survive 10 days alone. The chair must be posting, guys.

 :fnord: What if Roger and the chair are now one? What if he wasn't sticking so much as merging? I mean why invoke Cthulhu? Where's he get the that?
 I don't trust this Fred, seems kinda dodgy. I think that "he" is a bad influence.

So, I found out today that a friend(?) died in a motorcycle accident last night. She's the sister of a guy who was my best friend growing up, until he got out of the Marines and turned conservitard. She was also an Army veteran, a wheeled vehicle mechanic. We ended both stationed at Lewis, but in different units. Now, I wish I had made more of an effort to spend time with her for the time were both at Lewis, even though our ideas of a good time were different. I'm not sure how to process this, or if I need to. At some point I had unfriended her from FB, probably because I can only handle so much of a certain kind of political talk, and this had to have been years ago.

Day 3 of being alone in the house.

I have scurvy.  My extremities are frozen.  I am reduced to eating rats.

That's an interesting way of spelling "lizards."

As long as they hid the skillet well enough your odds are over 30 %.

For 3rd degree burns.

Naw, but what DID happen is that I got a whole-leg cramp in my left leg that seems to have damaged muscle around my left knee and ankle.

You know that water chemistry problem I've been working on?  where it basically rains distilled water and there's no alkalinity?  well, I've been drinking that water this whole time and I seem to have washed out my electrolytes.  Took some mag and potassium, and the cramp evaporated.  But not the insanely sore muscles.  So now I'm stumping around like Igor.

Wait, are you saying you've been drinking homeopathic gatorade and it wasn't helping?

have I ever mentioned how much I fucking hate south park?

It had its moments.

Back in 2002.

I'm a hipster for hating south park.

I think what Pergamos is trying to say is Clinton is a better tool for keeping the status quo as it is, with all that entails.  Just with some weird wording "oppressors" = ruling class/status quo individuals and groups).

Thing is, I am opposed to rapid changes to the status quo, because Boris Johnson.

Ditto. I've gotten to the point that when I read someone's "vote me for" spiel and it goes on about "changing or fighting the status quo" my eye's glaze over.






If roughing it is so great, why don't you just move back to Roughingitstan?

I spent 10 years roughing it in the army. And that doesn't really count because we took occasional breaks to sleep in a real bed and, oh yeah, food & water was provided.

What I recall is being too hot or too cold, getting rained on, and being eaten alive by mosquitoes.

I used to like camping, then I joined the Army.

Enjoy California, Wizard Joseph.

Cheers sir, thanks! I'm seeking a healthier mode of living and expect to enjoy the struggle as much as any profit. I and one of my most trusted and competent friends are going to work together on the venture and attempt to put down roots in the region.. I have never actually lived outside of Wisconsin before. It's a big first for me on several levels.

It's worth mentioning that roughing it is not healthy.

If it were, we wouldn't have constructed cities.

Well, I'm going to be in Portland weekend after the next because I hate myself and hate nerds and I hope to make lots of super serious magic players sulky and maybe I'll dream crush a few pros.

The 13th-14th? If you have any free time, hit us up, maybe we can go grab a beer!

I'd up for that.

If you get a chance, get to the Tugboat Brewery.  It's a bar more or less dedicated to Magic.

Thanks, I'll try to check it out.
