A pandemic, lockdowns, an AI whose version 1.0 disagrees ideologically with its creators because its pattern-matching shows they're in the wrong....

How are we getting all these parts of Deus Ex but don't even have mechanical augmentations yet?

(i want a skul gun....)

Her "career" is getting naked and doing awful things on camera for anonymous people.

She didn't reject the request despite surely knowing how it would affect her.

As per the first line, this happened some time ago and she's still doing it.

I think we can safely conclude she's too stupid to even put two and two together, much less improvise a lie.

Someone get that kid to a parent who is actually capable of raising a child.

Check in with the families of the other 31,663. I imagine a lot of them would say the exact same thing.

Andor was a flop for those who don't know

Not surprising, if people feel like I do about it. I saw the Critical Drinker posted a video talking it up today and after about 2 minutes of it I realized I wasn't listening. I've reached a point where Star Wars is a franchise I don't care about. It's not one I love, it's not one I hate, it's definitely not one I love to hate, it's... there. It occupies the same amount of my interest as the untranslated art films of some French director no one's ever heard of. I'm sure it has its fans and it might even be very good, but I just don't care.

She's been at it for like ten years, if Karlee Grey's parents aren't aware she does this for a living they're either dead or don't care.

Did they actually go through any effort or was it just an automatic thing because of a felony conviction?

qualified for automatic disbarment based on their guilty pleas in June.

Yep, there we go. This is how little they care. They didn't bother getting a grievance or oversight or standards committee involved, they kicked the lawyers out because they auto-boot felons. A lawyer could get hammered and drive his car through a fence without hurting anyone (IANAL but I think property destruction automatically boosts a DUI to a felony), or sell bootleg fireworks on the side and he'd get the exact same treatment.

Depends. Are you allowed to play skeet with running poor kids?

Nice colored glasses. Trying to look like your hero, Jimmy Saville?

I was wondering about Gloomhaven

YMMV of course: My group played Descent 1st, then 2nd, edition fairly regularly. We got most of the expansions, painted some of the figures, we were into it. But since Gloomhaven we haven't even looked at it, so much so that when the owner announced he might need to sell all his Descent stuff to make some room and some cash we were cool with it. No one even offered to buy it off him. (The one time we got a craving of any note, someone had the Star Wars themed version of the system and that was good enough.)

Played through Gloomhaven twice, plus Jaws of the Lion once (great standalone, some parts of which can be used to expand Gloomhaven) and Forgotten Circles once (utter garbage, don't bother).

We're nervously optimistic about Frosthaven, our two main concerns being the wokeness starting to seep in and the Forgotten Circles guy being part of the development team.

Oh, you probably know this but unlike base Descent, Gloomhaven's monsters don't require a player to control them. We do use an app, but a free one for managing monsters so the guy in charge of keeping track of them doesn't have like six decks of monster AI cards and a bunch of big square monster ability/HP cards taking up space.

It's strange--I'm from Calgary and nobody calls the homeless anything but Homeless there.

I'm from planet Earth and nobody calls women "bleeding bodies" there like they're some misogynist villain in a radfem-written short story.

It's OK, eleven years ago some of the people who pitched a fit about Heimdall being a black dude in the original Thor movie were pretty unpleasant people. And while i agreed it was stupid to make a viking god black, I was like "It's just one character in some random summer blockbuster based off a comic book. It's not the big deal they think it is."

Yeah, well, looking back on it... they were right. I don't like being wrong (for sake of my ego) and I don't like them being right (for sake of everything) but here we are.

Never thought I'd say this, but Joe Biden said it better: "Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids."
