  1. Never tried it. I didn't care for the Imperator: Rome game and Crusader Kings III was unplayable and unrecognizable as the Empire of Rome so, y'know. I'm out. I'll stick with the games that work.
  2. As I've developed into something approaching an adult over the years I've come to believe that other people are people too, sometimes. Weed does fucking smell. One should make attempt to smoke it outside. That's fucking difficult sometimes with laws and pandemics and shit. We all grow right? Each of our own individualized strain of person or something? I never cared about plants, which made being a quasi-farmer's kid a real pain in the ass.
  3. tsk tsk 1) You think the Chinese will be sanctioned??? And the American people will be ok with that? That's fucking adorable. 2) Prove it. Like, prove that China is making bullets. Go prove that to the Republican party when Donald Trump is all of a sudden saying "we can't lose trade with Ghinaaa, deeep state". As if he's never flip flopped before. 3) Russia is playing short game, China is playing long game, America is playing suicide games Russia is fucked when Putin dies. I don't know what he thought was gonna happen after him, but nobody does. He's a dog caught chasing cars. Ukraine will be his grave or the thing that historians look back on and say "It changed him, and he died a few years later." I'm sure he knows this. He just doesn't care. 4) China is smarter than you. Xi isn't stupid because he's not infallible. He's smart because he learns. The party adapts with him. Bye bye Hong Kong. Nice to know you. How long did outrage last over that? What happened with those sanctions eh? You think old Joe is gonna do... what exactly? To the "news" that some shell casings have Chineseish rightin' on 'em? You think he's gonna put it all on the line. All of it? All of it. Over China doing the exact same thing we're doing? Just imagine what Donald will say on that debate stage. My god, HE'LL BE RIGHT! He'll be right! Again! Xi doesn't need to like Donald Trump to do things that will help him. He just needs to like a broken America. 5) All you care about is money. In a general "western values" kinda sense. Yeah, yeah, democracy or whatever. But c'mon. What China gains by Russian war with Ukraine is the STAG GER ING expenditure of western money and resources on a war that they don't have very much to gain from. I mean what do you -get- at the other end of this fight? Ukraine has been ruined for almost the last ten years. Rebuilding is expensive as well. Meanwhile China can make a little dough or trade for cheap oil or gas or whatever with Russia (they're literally next door, friends) while aiding their psychopathic dictators' ruining of his country. Like I said. He ain't gotta send troops (which America has in Ukraine atm) and tanks and planes. What if he only sends "medical and quality-of-life" equipment? For "humanitarian" reasons? And of course the trucks and whatever else to transport them right? You think the American economy, it's corporate masters, are gonna let you ruin their profits to stop the "alleviation of Russian suffering"? THEY'RE COMMUNISTS
  4. Also, China and Russia have no reason not to be friends. Russia needs a daddy China is literally next door. Putin's not an idiot. Xi isn't gonna make him grovel. Tanks? I don't know. I don't know if China's gonna give those up. But bullets and shells? Why not? The same rationale y'all are making for the supply of Ukraine applies in reverse. 7.62mm is cheap Shells are cheap Russian lives cost China nothing What's the next Ukraine aid package gonna cost? Or the next one? Sleep tight.
  5. I'll step on this third rake (that's how that saying goes right?) first, I suppose. All this talk of TERFS (and a little bit of the devil's lettuce) got me to wrap up the podcast series, as I've been reading from Bari Weiss' site the past few months and well lo and behold... I think she makes a lot of good points! Mostly from the perspective that I'm basically a free speech absolutist, I have hated twitter since the second I met it, and I know exactly how stupid and hateful human beings are so... uh, yeah. I agree with her that I think a lot of young people have latched onto ideas about the gender and identity in ways that are... kinda not healthy. It's not their freedom to be whatever they want that I'm concerned about, its the fervor of it. I have held this opinion for a while. It's cool to be however you are. And I think it's brave to stand up to bullies. But the internet makes people terrible people. (Hi, my name is Jalen and I'm an internetaholic) I don't like being accused of being TERF or anti-woke or parroting right wing talking points because I have a principle that I hold more dearly than someone else does. For anything! Gimme a fucking break man, the first amendment is my thing. I'm a writer. I wanna write what the fuck I wanna write and say what I wanna say without worrying that my own people. My fucking liberal brothers and sisters and (Egdod bless your pea pickin hearts) the xers. Without worrying that my own side is going to leap to bad faith assumptions and make me afraid to... do shit! Chill, guys! Chill the fuck out! I'll stop using exclamations! But for real, yo. I get defensive too. I am also an internet asshole. But I got some real trauma and shit. And yo, I'm allowed to think that you're being weak when you let the fact that J.K. Rowling has opinions like impact your life and shit. I'm allowed to think that without being accused of enabling my own genocide. C'mon guys. We're better than that, as a society. I'm allowed to think that TERF is a nasty word without being one. I mean if I cross the line I get it, help reel me back in. And I would do the same except that I have trouble remembering where the line is It's a real fuckin problem. I see people about it and shit. Compared to that, yo. I just don't give a fuck about culture wars and shit more than that I have to navigate a minefield. Talking to my cousin, I'm dancing around trying not to find out what he watches on YouTube 'cause I ain't seen him in a long time and I'm trying to be nicer to people. I don't wanna know, I hope he doesn't tell me. I watch Stephen Kotkin. And U.S. Naval War College and the School of Transnational Governance and shit about WWI and WWII and sometimes I watch a funny fucking movie review and that's all I do and I don't give a single goddamn fuck about cancel culture or woke or anti-woke or whatever stupid horseshit you people waste your time with on Twitter. And sometimes I listen to Professor Chomsky too, when he's not being a pussy. Guy's got a lot of smart shit to say and I hope he lives forever. Love ya, out!
  6. I actually -was- thinking Chief of Staff, but then I thought you were promising to pardon me
  7. Yeah I whimed that out in like fifteen minutes. Don't make more of it than it is. I mean it's true or whatever. But I ain't a fucking poet. I'm a writer. Total difference.
  8. And I think I missed you most of all, Scarecrow When I'm running for President in five years I'll cite this comment for why, when I go on the MSNBCs and FOX and CNN, I'll only appear from behind a Scooby Doo shower curtain. I'm gonna be the "Do It for the Vine" candidate, you'll all see
  9. I never cared whether or not he's indicted for his whore payments I want him to hang from the neck until he's dead for the murder of Brian Sicknick, Ashli Babbitt, Kevin Greeson, Rosanne Boyland, and Benjamin Philips - All of whom were victims of his malicious and explicit campaign to end American democracy Enjoy your twitter trial
  10. They Screen For That: Since I was six and sick I knew; they screen for that No trips to space, no Moonscapes faced, no zero gee that's not for me Be what you want whatever you'll be but oh not me; they screen for that No F-16's, I have bad dreams and so it seems I should not fly And when asked why I like to high it's just because it's that or cry; they screen for that Nowhere goes your little prose it's just a bunch of words in rows But best you use the ones we want in our right way or you'll never even hear us say; they screen for that Did you know it's fun to learn but only when you get a turn, to ask your learner right from wrong It's not wanted, not a quibble, put your head back down and scribble too much asking takes nowhere, lesson plans are better square; they screen for that Here come child take a pill, let it sap away your will You're a bad one you might kill, good boys sit so fucking still; they screen for that Raise your hand and ask for help, it's okay but just don't yelp Don't raise your voice don't make a sound, they'll put you in the goddamn ground; they screen for that Prove your worth it's all for love, love of fellows- every one Oops wait these aren't your friends, they're passing shadows making fun- they'll take away your empty gun; they screen for that What's it like to be so glad that you don't live angry-mad, I just don't know I couldn't say But let me tell you anyway They Screen For That
  11. Now that's fuckin cooool! Forget an Alienware! Put some ads on this forum so we can get Ty one of THOSE
  12. HoI IV and Crusader Kings II are my most played games on steam. No RPGs worth the name were made from basically Mass Effect 3 until this Hogwarts game, as far as I'm concerned. (ROLE playing games) I like to play strategy games while I listen to podcasts/YouTube lectures/audiobooks. Compulsive multitasker, and the 15/30 second back buttons exist for a reason. I don't like what Bezos has done to shopping or the environment but I like his audiobook app
