God fucking dammit just let this thread full of fascist prohibitionist bullshit die, I'm tired of seeing it show up in my "new posts" feed.

"The Satanic Bible" can get a little Rand-ish at times, but it's still a far cry from Objectivism, and there's a deal of self-awareness and open mockery of organized religion. I wouldn't say it's required reading, but it's interesting, and while I do think LaVey was serious about his underlying message, I never got the impression he literally believed in Satan/etc. (actually if memory serves the guy was an atheist).

While I'm no Satanist and don't agree with everything LaVey wrote, I do suggest giving "The Satanic Witch" a read. It's presented as a guide for women on how to seduce men using psychology/pheremones/etc., but it's full of interesting ideas about how the mind works and how you can take advantage of that knowledge (which is where LaVey's concept of "magick" comes in--it's more applied psychology and a little natural chemistry than mystic crap, though there is some of that in other places that you can feel free to ignore). "TSW" was pretty damn helpful in writing my Betsy Rothschild character...

Wait, what? McFarlane? You mean McGee? I don't remember him saying much about it.

The bit I remember is that they parodied the original game by doing a comic about "American McGee's Strawberry Shortcake." The problem was that this was right around the time the Strawberry Shortcake brand was being relaunched, and the owners threatened to sue PA over harming their brand or whatever the fuck the lawyers came up with.

The image in question (mildly NWS) is here.

Still never played the first one, but I remember the fallout from the Penny Arcade comic to this day. They even did a sequel.

Writer's block OVER. Funny how my muse comes down from Seattle for a weekend and all the sudden the dam bursts.

There's a new chapter up, "Of Paganism and Patriarchy." It's about Jack and Megan meeting Cadence Ohana. Hopefully it won't be long before there are more to follow. The next one concerns Betsy's backstory and is called "I Was A Scientology Sex Slave." Guess what that one's about.

I graduated in 1999 and took advanced placement US history. We spent months on the American Revolution, the Civil War and the World Wars. The class more or less ended with the Kennedy assassination, the moon landing and a brief look at the civil rights movement and maybe a word or two about the fall of the Berlin Wall. Unless something major's changed, US education isn't teaching kids much of anything about the last 40-50 years of US history, and I have no doubt it's purposeful.

Quote
Meet Sean Bean, Manly Man.

Whilst out for a drink with a former Playboy model (Manly Point #1) thirty years younger than he is (Manly Point #2), Bean called out a passerby who made lewd comments towards his lady friend (Manly Point #3), and was rewarded by later being punched in the eye and stabbed in the arm with broken glass (Manly Point #4). Bean then went back into the bar, refused an ambulance and ordered another drink (Manly Point #5). There are no reports of what happened to the other man.

This all actually happened this past Sunday night.

And the moral of the story is: Do Not Fuck With Sean Bean.

I never got what was so great about Chuck Norris, but I think I like Sean Bean.

If it wasn't so late I'd say hop on Google Talk and I'd send it to you as a file transfer, but I have to be up at 5am and need to get to bed. I'm sure there'll be plenty of seeders in the morning. I got sidetracked and only made it halfway through the episode, but I know how it ends already.  :lulz:

I haven't watched episode nine yet (it's still downloading), but oh my, the reactions are coming in across the web. From the Penny Arcade boards:



I have been waiting for this since the first episode aired. You poor newbies have no idea what kind of series this is. :lulz:

Oh no, a new paradigm that doesn't fit our traditional ideas about how the world works! Let's figure out how to integrate it into our existing paradigms as quickly as possible and then go back to responding to everything we perceive as a threat to our power structure the same way our species always responds to perceived threats to our made-up authority!

*flings explosive feces and chirps a lot on cable networks*

Applying the term "cyber attack" to hackers DDoSing sites or "stealing" and releasing government information that shouldn't be secret to begin with is brilliant in an evil way, by the way. That term makes it sound like the hackers are initiating the use of force and therefore can be responded to with actual force without raising any ethical issues.

Yeah, it's definitely Varys and Illyrio in that scene.
