The basic rules of DnD can be so easily copied that there is ZERO reason to use the official system, save for older editions and stories. And no reason to pay actual money for them. Everything except the official table-top visual aids is free on the internet.

But you're also right. There's tons of other systems out there with interesting mechanics. I had a buddy who made one, and it was an interesting experiment to say the least.

It was based on Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and the 'stand' power system. Less than half-way through I happened to lose all interest in the original anime, but this guys game was still fun as hell when we had the right people. The man was basically nuts. He GM'd three intertwined campaigns, each with an associated party of 5 players, and more than a few full and partial cross-overs.

The cool thing about Jojo's in particular with this custom RPG is that the powers are weird, but as long as you stick with the same logic you started out with when you created your character, you could get away with crazy, creative applications of your 'stand's' power that neither GM nor player had foreseen at the start.

There were some funny moments however when my politics and those of the GM's NPCs clashed in-character and the GM started panicking, as he tries his damnedest to be politically neutral in the meta.

He's self-aware to a large degree, and has been for a long time. He's also perhaps the most ineloquent man of all time. He'll interrupt himself all the time, and go on long tangents, only even trying to wrap it all up by the time he finishes his run on sentences, and hates getting interrupted despite practically asking for it with said tangets.

(And yes, I'm aware of the irony in me saying this lol)

Demoralization.

Certification is arrogation. Arrogation is the process of 'assigning legitimacy'. It's a terribly cynical thing, whereby we're expected to trust someone for wearing a white labcoat, or speaking with a British accent.

Certification of elections is a ceremonial process. Bureaucrats have to vote for legitimacy of election results to provide the public with the illusion of checks and balances. It's all part of the process. All part of the plan.

Almost no one understands hatred. Weirdly enough, Biden almost accurately describes it implictly here, but totally gets in wrong in the sense that it doesn't apply to Ye.

Hatred is demonic. It's demonic in the sense that it possesses people and leads them to do things that are not characteristic of them, like an addiction. All of us are vulnerable to it. Doomscrolling is a big cause of it. However angry you are now, it will dissipate and turn to focus if you log off for a few weeks.

Nice.

We already know this, but don't be arrogant. Don't forget that only the crazy leftists are leaving Twitter in an exodus. I see no evidence of normies who don't care about politics leaving Twitter. There are people who are semi-politcal who also don't care, but who would care about the Hunter Biden laptop story. Don't assume people know what you know. Our ideology and use of this site has lead us to this information. Other people need to be lead to it more deliberately.

They wanted a mermaid with the tail curled up, but they wanted it symmetrical. Because it's a logo, I guess they figured 'fuck it' and made their logo a mermaid with two tails. That's all it is. The two tails curled up, one on either side, into a circle.

Chicks on dating apps noticing that all of the buff men tend to be right wing in beliefs. There's actual research backing this up by the way. The more testosterone a man has, the more right wing they tend to be. The woman wants a buff leftist.

ALFRED HITCHCOCK!

Did I get it right?

Exactly right, I'm not suggesting that at all. "Shouldn't" doesn't always mean law. I was referring to the latest push by leftists claiming that white people only choosing to date other white people is racist. I'm opposed to that logic.

Gotta keep Foxconn running nice and smooth. Apple is the CCP's bitch.

I fucking hate all this talk about safety. Last I checked, barring the criminals who commit crimes on the platform and lure people to being abused, the internet is the safest tech in the world. You're on a fucking computer.

At this point, I'm practically a Primativist. Or whatever brand of Primitivist means 'return to homesteading', so maybe not too primative.

Eh. Yes and no. Interracial marriage is fine, but so is not wanting to marry outside your race. And it's a lot more common an attitude than people think. Simple in-group preference. Same with friends for that matter.

And what Musk is doing is helping a lot. No joke. Cancel culture and wokeism more generally is essentially an honor culture. Honor cultures can't survive if people can be mocked with impunity.

Meme them until they cry!

And then make memes of them crying!

Honestly, the article is full of non-sequiters.

Marriage isn't dying because of gay marriage or state intervention. And it's not dying because of MGTOW or their arguments being true. It's dying because the simple cultural fabric of relationships is tearing apart.

Whether the government recognizes marriage of this or that type doesn't matter AT ALL. The only thing about this bill worth caring about is whether churches are free to conduct ceremonies. THAT is at risk and worth protecting.

That said, marriage is not some government creation. It's a bond between two people. It has NO PLACE in the law whatsoever, except insofar as traditions are protected.

Apps are datamines. It's easy enough to add weblinks as icons on a homescreen. No need to install datamining software except for creature comforts that lure you into using the full app, or annoying messages when using the browser version of a service.

It would probably be better to run it under the Starlink brand. It's already an internet service, and there's now WiFi calling, so it's no longshot. Plus, I guarantee the margins are better for cell phones than satellite internet. A high margin consumer product would do wonders for a brand like Starlink, and organizationally, with Starlink internet, he could do vertical integration.
