Is he toast, or is it an appearance of the Messiah?  Why not both?

"House Republicans aren’t done slashing food assistance and fighting over social issues"

As per the article:

"After clamping down on food stamps in the debt ceiling deal, House Republicans now want to take a whack at WIC, the food assistance program for low-income women, infants and young children.
GOP lawmakers have proposed curtailing funding for WIC in the chamber’s version of the US Department of Agriculture’s annual spending bill. The legislation could force some families to wait for aid for the first time in years, as well as limit their ability to buy fresh fruits and vegetables.

It’s among the party’s latest efforts to cut federal spending by limiting benefits, reducing enrollment and adding work requirements to the nation’s safety net."

Nothing more clearly shows The Republiculttm is the willing tool of the oligarchs than this type of legislation. Tax cuts are more important to THEM than feeding poor women and their children. 

Here's the link:

This doesn't have anything to do with tax cuts, making sure poor people starve is important to their agenda, tax cuts are too, and they will sometimes pretend starving poor people is to make them possible.

So tiktok is full of Iranians, it looks like they're having a revolution, but if you believe tiktok Occupy and BLM were revolutions.  Anyone know what's going on?  I feel like the media is being fairly quiet about it because nobody I have mentioned it to face to face had heard anything.

Well that isn't going to happen. What is with this setting being derailed by breakups?  First time it was me and my girlfriend, this time my wife's boyfriend broke up with her.  I think if I use this setting again I need to make sure there are no romantic relationships between players.

Planning a new campaign in this same setting. Not Vietnam this time, exact location in the multiverse not clear yet but we'll get there. Characters so far include a wizard brain in a jar, a dragon, and a shaman who is hallucinating it all.

Too many to talk about...and I've had enough memories that my memory is like Swiss cheese.

There were certainly more women active on the board back then. What did you guys do to chase them away?

The Commander

It varies depending on the lady in question. Despite being probably the creepiest guy on the board I don't think I was personally responsible for any of them.

If the theory is true, then lots of money is being spent to form profiles of bots, which is a fun thought.

Is it Tuscon that is filled with hippies?  My only experience in Arizona is some training I did at Fort Huachuca down south.

The Commander

There's less hippies than anywhere in the pacific northwest, but more than Phoenix for sure.

I just read through this entire thread, and I am quite surprised how philosophical it got at times. Hilarious as well. Of course, given the topic, there was a fair amount of lewdness, but also insightful commentary.

The downside is it makes me nostalgic for some of the folks who are no longer active on the board.

The Commander

Tell us about the people you miss and why, that's half the fun nowadays.

Have you seen what Roger does to toilets?  No way are we letting him near one.

I think folks who see "sex work is work" as bullshit are in denial about how badly most work sucks.  Yes, sex work is awful. Like much awful work it pays well.  Treating it differently than toxic waste disposal, or drug dealing is counter productive.

Eliminating sex work is probably impossible and trying and failing to do so makes life worse for sex workers.  Hiring a hooker or going to a strip club, or paying for porn is absolutely supporting exploitation and probably also supporting rape, but getting the cops involved will only make things worse for the victims and probably give the exploiters another tool to enforce obedience.

I got spam from my medical clinic telling me to check if I was eligible for a free shot.  I know I'm not eligible and assumed it was a scam.  I called the clinic and it turned out it was not a scam, covid shots in WA are all free and someone at corporate was being stupid about publicity.  I am relieved since my assumption was that my medical records had been stolen.  I'm still not eligible, but I have gotten pretty used to hermiting out, I can handle a couple more months.

Principia Discussion / Greg Hill's videogame
« on: March 02, 2021, 01:19:52 pm »
Wikipedia claims Greg Hill was involved with the design of an early videogame, but isn't specific.  Does anyone know the specifics?  And if it is possible to get ahold of it?
