Annnnnnnnnnnnnnd Pathfinder 2.0 - which they SWORE would never happen - hits next month.  It is different enough that the two full size bookshelves of Pathfinder I have are not compatible.

In thst case screw them.

Agnosticism is intellectually lazy

Agnosticism makes sense because there are so many different religious systems. And a lot of them have really low standards. Throwing lightning bolts was one of the demonstrations back when I used to work at the science museum. Good old Nikola Tesla.

That's what I've been saying. It's all fearmongering and bullshit

It's not a troll because they really are that stupid

A woman who writes a far-right blog saying that trans people should kill themselves turns out, after needing some medical test for some reason for some reason or another, to be a biological male with androgen insensitivity syndrome. The disgnosing physician, who has seen the blog, also writes them a referral to Jack Kevorkian "as per your request" as a preface to giving them the news.

"Neitzsche say: 'When a desire to obtain tyrannical power has been awakened in the soul, even a very mediocre talent becomes an almost irresistible force.'"

"Neitzsche say: 'He who lives by fighting with an enemy has an interest in the preservation of the enemy's life.'"

"Neitzsche say: 'When a man roars with laughter he surpasses all the animals by his vulgarity.'"

"Neitzeche say: 'We sometimes remain faithful to a cause merely because its opponents never cease to be insipid.'"

"Neitzsche say: 'There are people who wish to make human life harder for no other reason than to be able afterwards to offer men their life-alleviating religiosity'"

"Neitzsche say: 'Whoever thinks much is unsuitable for a partisan; his thinking leads him too quickly beyond the party.'"

"Neitzsche say: 'The disciples of a martyr suffer more than the martyr.'"

Two ideas:

*The story of a mad scientist trying to reanimate the dead who is sensible and starts out reanimating tissue from steaks and chickens from the supermarket instead of jumping straight into whole stolen bodies from the cemetery

*A movie starts with the police interviewing a suspect's friends; none of their stories match up. The rest of the movie is in flashback showing why all the seemingly contradictory stories are actually true. (for example, they can;t even agree on what he was wearing that night, and over the course of the flashback he spills stuff on himself and has to change his shirt twice)

I always assumed the deep state was just the latest version of illuminati/freemasons/reptiles/aliens-run-the government

It always just sounded like "Checks + Balances = Fascism" to me.

I don;t think there's that much deliberately manipulative thought put into it. I think it's more a tinfoil hat thing.

Science fiction story where the creator of an anti-aging and youth restoring serum has his research stolen by a gang of assassins who plan to debelop it into a weapon that will allow them to exploit legal loopholes and kill people legally by reverting them to a fetal/embryonic state.

The story of a pacifistic vampire who subsists on used tampons and maxi pads.

On a related note:

Shortly after the invention of the birth control pill there are a wake of vampire attacks as the pill suppresses mensturation and vampires can no longer as easily get their fix from used maxi pads since so many people are now on the pill. The part of the prescription with the week of non-medicated pills to allow mensturation to take place eventually comes about as part of a secret peace treaty between the human authorities and the vampire underworld.

Alternate history original story idea: the Russian Revolution fails, only for proto-fascist Whites to come to power, slowly but steadily turning Imperial Russia into a Nazi Germany style state.

This one has great potential for affecting everything up to the present day in so many ways.  If you have the Spartacist uprising in Bavarian succeeding, you essentially have swapped Russia and Germany's places.  How does the Polish-Russian War of 1920-22 go down?  Since France played a large role in that war and was acting primarily against the USSR, it has no reason to get involved in this war.  In fact, the French may back the Whites against Poland.  Does the Entente Cordiale survive WWI?  How does Japan react to Russian militarism?  Etc etc

I think it would be cool to do the converse. The whites win instead of the reds but history plays out mostly the same with the intended moral being that 1.) any philosophy professed by a dictatorial state is generally just meaningless window dressing and 2.) Dictators are a fungible commodity

This one's not a story idea, it's an idea for a business (thought it could also work well as a location that the characters go to in a story or m0vie):

A restaurant with a horror movie theme. It's nearly pitch dark, save for some flickering green lights, except when the waitstaff bring something out from the kitchen, at which point strobe lights flash behind the kitchen door. The waitstaff are all dressed as either slashers or supernatural spooks. The music is a mix of spooky music like Tocatta and Fugue in D Minor, Halloween novelty songs like Monster Mash, themesongs from horror movies, and possibly horrorcore songs like Dead Body Man and If I Was A Serial Killer .All the meat products are prepared in a way that emphasizes the fact that they were once alive; one of the dishes is a whole roast pig that comes with a long knife jammed in its back. Hot wings are also served. When the bones come back, instead of being thrown out they are cleaned and dropped into a clear hollow plexiglass wall mounted flush to one of the real walls. As time goes on this chamber fills up with bones. The menus are block printed in cow's blood (but laminated for sanitary purposes)
