*looks you in the eye as he slowly pours chunky milk into a chalice. The warm milk makes semi-liquid plip-plop sounds as it splashes into the basin.*

"A curse, ye say? Well I know of only one way to cure a curse. It's to go into the Dank Forest, on a new moon, armed with only a doobie. You must seek out the Weresax.

If you are pure of heart, it will appear as an innocent forest creature. But if you have any doubt, or sin, or alt-right tattoos, you will instead encounter the monster in it's Crinos Form--that of a dire saxaphone!

And oh ho, the hagravens weep for any who run afoul of the dreaded weresax in its Crinos Form."

Suu, I wanna hear your best "bronze age collapse" theory

The Sea People were from space, right? I mean, it's kinda obvious. Like we wouldn't notice.

Super interesting thread - data-based analysis of methods to decrease police violence.

Ahh, come in, come in! Welcome to the Spinning Skull Inn & Tavern! I'm surprised you found it, given that it doesn't have a sign, only a pixelated, spinning skull. We're the last friendly house on the road to Blood Gargle Canyon, so you'd better get your comforts while you can.

Pull up a stool. We have Dwine, Ale, Haunted Spirits, and a mead brewed with precious gemstones which we call Dragon Cum. Have a drink and describe your heaving breasts, maybe tell me a bit of your sexy back story. Are you on some adventure right now? *leans in closer* Do you want to be? *wink*

yeah I'm good! I'm engaged. Stable but bored.

I'm basically like a commercial for acne medication: CLEAN, CLEAR, AND UNDER CONTROL

by Clear I mean that I'm now a 33rd degree Scientologist and would you like to take an e-meter reading? please clench this rod

that line is taken out of context, we need to know what led to the boot stomping on the human face, forever

I've posted this sentiment before, but feels like a good moment to repeat it.

Today I am thinking about Foucault's position: that the current systems of governance are built on a logic meant to dissipate and confuse resistance to it.

Under the old system (monarchy / feudalism), society was a pyramid, and law & justice ultimately rested on the shoulders of one person. When people got trampled, their anger was directed at that person. Backlash against this system was risky, but decapitating that power hierarchy could actually change it. And one that coup-energy is loose, it's hard to put back in the box. During the French and American revolutions, we had to devise a new system of government, one that could not be so easily compromised by revolt. We invented things like Juries not because 9 random people are any good at determining justice, but in order to protect judges from backlash. Representative government means that regular people are theoretically *responsible* for the laws. This makes public opinion the first battleground for unrest.

This puts reformers in a tricky position - in order to change society in a broken democracy, you have to oppose not just the government agents, but everybody who gives those agents their power. 

This means that revolutions in democracies will always be social revolutions. "Us" and "them" are confused and overlapping. This is a built-in principle of our system of government--not a bug, but a feature. We're supposed to fight each other in the streets because the alternative was marching leaders to the guilotines.

Also, I think every single person who's been on RuPaul's Drag Race is somewhere on this site.

My boss is a figure skating super-fan.  Me and my team are throwing in to get him birthday greeting from Nancy Kerrigan. It's gonna blow the top off his gourd.

Rod Blagojevich, felon and former governor of illinois...

How sad must it be -- to have had so much power, and then to find out your name is worth 3x less than a guy doing impressions of Joe Exotic.

Who is the most depressing presence you can find on the site?

My top pick so far is the guy who played Zordon in the Power Rangers:

For $75, we could get Roger Stone to read our Terms of Service out loud. As a service to newbies.

unfortunately, the money would go to Roger Stone. And the biggest drawback is that we'd have Roger Stone reading our forum Terms of Service out loud.

HEY CAINAD --- check out the SCUP threads in the RPG Ghetto
