This is too funny to NOT do.
No, we're not mercenaries. We just carry weapons and kill things for the joy of the experience.

Finished Shadows Linger (surprisingly..it got a lot better... )
and onto The White Rose, continuing the Black Company series by Glen Cool....I probably won't be getting very far into this any time soon, seeing as I'm moving and I've got shit to do....bah.
No offense, but I can tell that you're not an American. Scientists aren't worshipped here. They are liberal elitist/socialist pigs that live in an ivory tower and hate Baby Jebus. We worship mediocrity here instead. Intelligence is a liability.Suggestions, even cultural ones, that scientists are somehow more moral and more humane than most people seems to play into some sort of naive secularism which replaces the priesthood as a model of conduct with the scientific community, and perhaps encourages more faith in the decency of scientists (as a group) than they deserve.Can you give me an example of any time this has happened outside of really bad science fiction? I keep hearing stories about scientists acting like gods and wanting to be worshipped but I've never seen it happen in real life. Sure, I've seen several philosophers of science put forth moral systems but they are conscious of the Is-Ought Problem and don't tell people "Convert or die!" unlike some certain groups.
It's not the scientists that want to be worshipped, its the general populace that choose the scientists to worship. And if you have worshippers all it takes to cause trouble is one asshole priest/scientist. (that would be an interesting dualclass)
And of course deeming one person (whether it be priest, scientist, or plumber) with complete infalliability is a horrible idea. We can all agree on that one.
how about applying a vertically ridged bumpmap to the cloth? to make it sort of corduroy-looking?
Ok let me get this straight.
while we are trying to get people to think they do not have a complete collection the issue numbering policy is going to made so that people can track all the issues easier?
I like both ideas actually. Can they be combined?
color me bland, but I'd prefer the issues to be numbered sequentially. It will be much less confusing down the line, especially when we have over 10 issues. Is it really much of a mindfuck to confuse ourselves by having randomly numbered issues or a bunch of issue 5s? Keep it Simple!
Would it be amusing to skip an issue and yet pretend it actually existed? We could make fake letters to the editor complaining about how offensive the issue was, etc.
4 out of 5 here. I can't figure out what I haven't done already.
The only thing I haven't tried was drowning the kid.
edit: I tried drowning the kid, it didn't change the ending. Huh.
