This is entirely my inner 11-year-old talking, but if the rumored Hasbro/Mattel merger actually happens, the first thing I want to see is Eternia statted out as a D&D campaign setting. :-D

Since everyone's making them, here's my Iowa Caucus prediction: Several more months of this same bullshit, unchanged, regardless of the numbers.

I'm going to write a story about poultrygeists. It's called "The Bocking Dead." It starts with murder most fowl, and ends with eggstinction.

Depending on exactly what the problem is, you might like the "Magic Actions for YouTube" Chrome extension. Disabling autoplay for YouTube videos is one of its options.

We need to stop listening to people telling us to "be realistic" or limiting our goals to "what's realistic," in terms of political progress. Pretty much by definition, you can't change reality by being realistic.

You know, I have no idea what MLK would have thought of Black Lives Matter, but I have a pretty good idea what he'd have thought of a bunch of white assholes putting words in his mouth about it.

In any state where they've passed a law allowing property owners to check people's genitals to make sure they're using the "right" restroom? If you're in an establishment where they do that, even once, every single one of us who's a cis male should DEMAND they check us. Make them have constant cocks in their face. And if they refuse, either walk out or, even better, threaten to sue them for gender-based unequal treatment.

No, most establishments probably aren't going to actually do that. But when they have the right to, a few just might. Make them regret it.

If you can make the manager making the decision do the checking -- not some hourly worker who can't say no.

Non-writers will never understand that "unable to find appropriate writing music for today" is a serious, genuine obstacle to productivity.

You ever hear what someone just said and think, "You're going to be the reason I need a defense lawyer"?

There are plenty of online sources for how to hide the bodies.

I look forward to the day when the technology for online tabletop roleplaying is ACTUALLY CAPABLE of handling online tabletop roleplaying.

But it is not this day. -_-

My Vampire group uses Roll20 for the visual interface and Mumble for voice-chat, and it works out really well. Yeah, it's two apps instead of one, but it's not much more work, and the experience is MUCH cleaner. (Mumble costs money, of course, but free apps like Discord or Skype should also work!)
