Exactly! Omnia vanitas.

Christ, what an asshole. I came into this discussion feeling vaguely uncomfortable because I held a philosophical position somewhat similar to yours and at the same time didn't see any need to belittle or harass trans people, and wasn't sure if that made me a bigot. Now I don't even care, I'm rejecting it. You've made it look that unappealing and pretentious.

I'm thinking of quitting my job, for the reasons outlined above. One of my coworkers last December said to call them if I was looking for work, and that maybe they could get me a job at another garden centre, so I do have another option. Being treated like human garbage on a daily basis is bad enough, but I got called in to work today when I'd said ahead of time that I had an appointment, and I had to fight to keep the day off. I'm pretty sure I'm not gonna get any day off this month without a fight, and I had extracted a promise from my boss before the shit hit the fan that I would get some time off, so fuck it.

I've never met a Discordian in my life.

PeeDee, I bring you greetings from the land of Jobs That Aren't Imploding In A Cataclysmic Orgy of Incompetence.

 :argh!:

You lucky bastard. My boss's turned into a real asshole this past week, and he's singling me out. I don't know what the hell's up with him, but the outcome is a toxic mix of micromanagement, incompetence, and general authoritarian fuckery, and I'm catching the brunt of it. He'll tell me to do something, then when I'm in the middle of it he'll interrupt me to tell me either to do it the way I'm already doing it or to do it another way with obvious gaping flaws in the methodology. This has been something of a tradition of his, but lately it's escalated to the point that if I ask so much as a single question, he just snaps in my face and says "DON'T YOU FUCKING QUESTION ME." In all-caps, too. And there are a lot of questions that have to be asked. He contradicts himself, interrupts himself, leaves sentences half-finished, and leaves details vague with alarming regularity, so asking questions is a necessary part of discerning what he actually wants when he gives me orders. Honestly, I'm surprised he hasn't hit me yet.

I apologize for my generation, Nigel.

Thank you. That makes me feel a little bit better, because it gives me hope that some of them will actually pull their heads out of their asses.

 :sad: You're killing me here.

I HATH RISEN.

The invisible hand of the free market has seen fit to gift us with your presence. Clearly, small moderation is the way to go.

Last Saturday, I lost my virginity. Thanks, okcupid!

Ok, some elaboration: Last week, I messaged and met up with a very nice girl. We liked each other and spent most of the week hanging out downtown. Eventually, the subject of sex came up, and it was something we both wanted to do, so we made plans and did it at the end of the week. It turns out we're really compatible, and it went well. Neither of us is really in a position for a romantic relationship, but I think we basically have the ideal kind of friendship with benefits. We're both really open about sex with each other, but it's far from the central reason we have anything to do with each other.

I've always been kinda terrified of the prospect of encroaching on someone else's boundaries or being creepy and predatory, and that's the main reason I hadn't really made a move with anyone before. I'm glad my first time turned out to be about as thoroughly consensual as humanly possible.

All men at least above 15 (or younger if very asocial) should live separately from women and children, on their own in small huts or studios, isolated from one another and scattered around so that women can keep an eye on them (they should never be in groups or packs, that would be illegal). So it would also be illegal for male adults to impose their presence on females, girls and children. Men would have to care for themselves on their own: food, laundry, etc. No male above his age of puberty would be allowed to receive any kind of service from a female. Their life expectancy would probably drop to the age of 40, but thatís how things should be. Womenís life expectancy without men would rise to 130 years at least.

PIV would be illegal too of course, as well as the initiation of any verbal or physical contact to women and girls or boy children, unless solicited by a woman for specific matters. Iím not sure what to do about boy children. Obviously you know my opinion, but letís say thatís up to the mother to decide what she wants to do before he turns of age to leave the female family circle.
Does she want toxic masculinity? cuz this is how you get toxic masculinity. This setup wouldn't survive one month without a violent uprising. It's such a spiteful and neurotic form of fascism that it does even have the facade of efficiency and competence that the Nazis had.

Yeah, it struck me as kind of a huge logistical oversight that men are supposed to be isolated but they're just kinda tossed out into the wilderness without any supervision.

I'd procrastinate, but I really have to eat first.

So, Governor Douchie just fucked our state forever.

What's up in Arizona?

Wow, the author did kinda shit research. Either that, or they're embarrassed about playing DnD and want to pretend they don't.

While the fact that there's a race of dragons so devoted to stealing brains that they are commonly dubbed Brainstealer Dragons should be more than enough to prove their strangeness, they have other issues. For instance, instead of heads they just have four tentacles shooting out of their necks, which they use to, uhÖ steal your brain.

There actually is an explanation for this, and it's weird enough that the author could've left it in if they'd known about it and it'd hype up the weird even further. There's a race of evil brain-eating mini-Cthulhu things called Illithid(or Mindflayers), and they reproduce by laying parasites in people's brains that transform their heads. I'm pretty sure Brainstealer Dragons are just what happens when Mindflayers manage to get their hands on a draconic host.

the Abyss, which is basically D&D's hell. It's where chaotic people go when they die to be continually eat alive by maggots.

Chaotic Evil people. Chaotic Neutral people go to Limbo, and Chaotic Good people to to Elysium.

Quote
These giant dragons wander Hades, which is different from the Abyss in that it's "the battlefield for the eternal Blood War," whatever that means.

It's pretty significant to the background fluff, actually. Basically, Lawful Evil souls go to one hell and become devils and Chaotic Evil souls go to another and become demons, and they fight an eternal war in Hades, the Neutral Evil plane. The Neutral Evil dead, or Yugoloths, then hire themselves out as mercenaries to the highest bidder. I'm simplifying some of it, but that's the general gist.

But did you know dragons can also be zombies? It's true!

Yeah, but anything can be a zombie if it used to be alive. You just cast Animate Dead, and it's a zombie. It's actually pretty easy.

If your Dungeon Master has you run into a Zombie Dragon, you know your DM hates you.

Not really. The zombie template isn't really much of a power boost, if any. And in the case of something like a dragon, which wins fights by being powerful and clever, turning into a moaning idiot is definitely a downgrade in power.
