Smallpox blankets, cast like a gladiatorial Rete Net

Dissamble robots, use them to augment yourself and live forever.

Or burn down the city while stomping on the fleeing citizenry.  One or the other.


Infamy is its own form of immortality.
Like when Herostratus shot John Lennon.

He sounds like an oppertunist, he sees nationalism in Scottland and NI as a way to promote more of the xenophobic aspects nationalism has become associated with. Ironically and what should have been obvious is that Scottland and NI leaving the UK results in them keeping the free trade and movement of Europe so he may be hitching his trailer onto the wrong truck.

Martin McGuinness died, he was the former second in command of the IRA, who turned politician and was one of the biggest campaigners to the peace process in NI, it's a real shame because he would have been a good hand to represent stability up there through what will be a painful Brexit process.

Oh my god that turned out to be a real game.

I remember seeing the really catchy song trailer:

Why the hell don't we address women as "mister"? It's derived from "master", and the etymology indicates nothing about gender. http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=master
Gender etymology varies depending on the region, Dutch, French, and so on have different ways of handling to it to English.
Measter still has the eastern european feminine form which adds an a, meastra. The french just use maître, but for a lot of words they only distinguish with Le/La. 
The post grad (at least any I've seen) uses master regardless of the gender but technically Mistress should also be applicable.

Doctor who had a fun play on this two years ago where a villain The Master regenerated as a woman

The Master:


The Mistress:

I'm glad you're okay. Please don't go to that place. How you're feeling right now isn't permanent; things will get better.

If you ever want to chat, vent, etc, swing by #discord.
I appreciate the offer. Does #discord mean the IRC or something? I'm not exactly hep to the techno slang. If it is IRC do you know of a decent client app for android?

Yeah during the 9-5 hours I'm in the IRC channel called #discord. The easiest way to find it is here: http://www.principiadiscordia.com/irc/

Android clients.... there's -
- androirc, but it's shit
- andchat, but it's outdated
If I can I'll try make the page more responsive on phones, but it might be hard as its loading that client as an external object

Makes sense, great that would result in problems here, unless it became it's own state, at least in the interim. What about Scotland then, I would have thought they would be more reluctant to see that go because of the military bases, Cameron certainly played the "Better together" song well to them a couple of years back, May doesn't seem as engaging, well, with anyone.

Yeah, the North is getting really worrying,Republicans are laying off violence, because they need a smily happy face on the prospect of reunification of a united Ireland, though aren't above it if things go sour.  I really feel bad for the unionists, they are digging their heels in, feel like they are under attack from the republicans and all the while letting slip comments like Arlene Forester cant get in contact with Teresa May or Westminster, they have been hung out to dry.

I don't see why England would do that though, what is there to gain by alienating the unionists, unless it really is nothing more then a money issue with them.

That would stand a chance at being viable, if only there was a chance at stopping arguing which sect of Christianity is the right one.

So no hope there then.
For the time being, we recently discovered a mass grave of 700 bodies in a nunnery, even before that less then 30% of people are religious, We'll see what happens in the next few years. That said Northern Ireland is a massive money pit, it would probably take the Republic and the Scotts just to cover its day to day expenses.

Not to revel but a lot of Irish people have been joking about setting up The union of Craic, where The republic, Northern Ireland and Scotland form a state.

Glad someone got the joke, even if it was 4 years later.

I was a backer for that project, The guys in my house already want me to print of replacement limbs for their warhammer stuff. If I like it, and actually put it to good use, I'm going to spring for something you can make larger templates from.

This was depressing, this project went bad on Kickstarter (like many do), but it went unbelievably bad with one partner asking the other where the money was gone to find out he had siphoned off 700k to build a house. I would have been ok with them finding out that the project was in-viable or something like that, parts cost more then expected etc, but outright theft was a very depressing way to end it.

If the universe was in fact a simulation, there would be some subtle tells, where the narrative breaks down, when the simulation ran into resource bottlenecks.
