Re: World news thread

Actually before his Address, memes mocking the Kings silence/absence were trending a lot, Spaniards wanted him to pitch in... Speaking Western Europe, if the monarchs have a political role it could be a kind of a safety valve system, breaking political deadlocks etc. Looks like under the Finnish sy...

Re: #MakeAmericaGreatAgain

On a side note: Anyone know if grief counseling even works? I advised my aunt to go seek counseling as a few of her friends and coworkers didn't make it.. I am sorry for her loss. A very sad and senseless event. According to Wikipedia there's a few controversies about the subject. I might attribute...

Re: #MakeAmericaGreatAgain

So when are you guys going to admit that there's a problem and do something about this? I still think its foolish to focus entirely on guns without considering other issues such as the continuing sensitivity to violence in our culture, lack of quality mental health care and the stigmatization of me...

Re: World news thread

What some quick googling tells me, the argument for independent Catalonia boils down to how much Spain is mistreating them. Regional culture and institutions are not respected, etc. Apparently the calls for independence started when Catalan autonomy (long established in the Spanish state) was challe...

Re: Games I am officially EXCITED about.

Feels the ship has already sailed for Stellaris. I don't mind stellaris but it feels unfinished the DLCs are what it should have launched with and finding a precursor home planet unless its cyberex doesn't give you anything particularly interesting no new tech or ships. Play style also stays the sa...

Re: Anyone here play tabletop roleplaying games?

They have finished repairing a keep which is habituated by several races (Kobolds, dwarfs, a Salamander, a few dragonborn and a giant snake golem) and ruled by a black dragon. And somehow managed to survive a roc attack. They've just started it's industry by funding an asbestos (crocidolite) mine, ...

Re: War movies.

Saving Private Ryan. Read this http://www.reelviews.net/reelviews/saving-private-ryan It's a very good review, easy to agree with, and I think well explains why this movie is great. (Even up to the point of mentioning Spielberg's earlier lighthearted work so this was not something I expected based ...

Re: World news thread

I'm starting to think that we need to bring back slavery... but only enslave all of those who think that shit like this is a good idea. Let's see how awesome they think Neo-Nazism or colonialism is after they've spent 30 years under brutal conditions as a slave. The rule should be that anyone gets ...

Re: Games I am officially EXCITED about.

Feels the ship has already sailed for Stellaris. While the game itself is currently on a significant discount, the DLC are not and to date Utopia seems to be the only substantial update, with others adding new playable races and little stuff like that. The game itself turned out to be a slight disap...
