    Rothfuss XIV: The Slow Regard of Luna Lovegood

    Well, I implied that the general toxicity and childishness of the conversation (and I employ that term loosely) in this thread was starting to attract the types of trolls and knuckle-draggers you see in less, shall we say, "sophisticated" corners of the net. You obviously confused "showing up" in this thread with, I guess registering an account with the website? Regardless, my question was more aimed at what him having joined the site before me has to do with...anything.

    Y'see this shit is exactly what I've been lecturing y'all about. Treat this place like 4Chan, and look what shows up.

    Best historical fiction for HUGE ASOIAF fan...

    Shogun by James Clavell is really worth reading. The setting is a little different than ASoIaF, but the character work, the worldbuilding, the political scheming and interplay may scratch that TWoW itch.

    Nah, I was just making a joke.

    One of my closest friends does webcam shows to pay off her student loans. It's a lot more common than you'd think for women with upper level degrees.

    U.S. Politics: Death and Tax Cuts

    It's worth pointing out if one of these states is being upheld as morally superior, while said state is also reaping the benefits from and supporting America's military industrial complex. "Vassal" state also implies a kind of direct servitude, rather than the mutually beneficial, joint exploitation that's actually reflected in reality. I think "accomplice" might be the more appropriate word. Well I was talking about Americans' attitudes towards the idea of American Exceptionalism and exporting our values, not about US foreign policy. I agree that US influence across the world has become more benign since the Cold War wound down, at least until 9/11 happened. Of course, Cold War geopolitics and America's role as a global force before the 1980s is a whole other bag of ethically shifty cats.

    Again, the nicest thing I've seen anybody say here is that he's not as bad as the Teabaggers, Nazis, and Russian spies...so essentially he's not as bad as the Teabaggers. Don't see who is deifying him, but keep attacking the straw man.

    I remember Republicans openly admitting that they were dragging the Benghazi hearings out because it hurt Clinton's poll numbers. There is truly no shame in their game anymore.

    I think at some point Trump called Angela Merkel "Sugar-Tits" in a tweet and it just kind of snowballed from there.

    This doesn't strike you as a little ridiculous? Christ, Japan was colonizing people decades after most Europeans countries acknowledged how barbaric that part of their history was. As a state they have yet to acknowledge the scope and horror of the war crimes their army committed Southeastern Asia and the Philippines during the 20th century. But while there you feel the need to apologize for a silly movie? Can we have a little bit of perspective here?
