I am fairly active on Google+, and as you may have noticed I like to discuss many political, technological, scientific and other matters. I generally encourage others to join in. However, here is something you should keep in mind for my stream:

If you want to make an argument and cite a YouTube video in support of your claims, I will not watch it.

This is because using a YouTube video to support your claims forces the other people in the discussion (including me) to consume a lengthy piece of media without any prior indication of its quality - I only have your word that the video actually contains useful information or is good at all. I can speed-read text articles, jump to the relevant bits and do Google searches of key phrases and figures mentioned therein, but with YouTube videos I either have to jump around a lot in the hopes of finding the relevant information (hoping that I haven't missed anything relevant) or be forced to watch it all from the beginning - and that may be minutes or even hours of my life wasted that I won't get back. There is too much bullshit on YouTube as it is - and it's much harder to sort it out in advance than with text articles.

The same goes for podcasts. I may be willing to watch videos or listen to podcasts recommended to me by people whose opinions and knowledge I trust, but that list of people is unlikely to include You, Random Internet Stranger who dropped by for an argument.

So give me some text citations, or don't bother.

The remarkable part of the story is not that Trump may have had sex with a porn star, but that Trump allegedly paid her - Trump, who is famous for and proud of stiffing other people whenever he can.

Today's subject in my "Digital Mapping Workshop for Gamers" on RPGNet is "how to use existing maps as a base for your own maps" - for example, if you want to change an existing setting for your own purposes.

If you have any questions, jump right in!

Farange and his fellows have been riding on the "Hate the EU" gravy trains for years now, and now they are getting anxious that they will soon be irrelevant (and out of money).

“Here in the European commission we are somehow surprised that the UK is surprised that we are preparing for a scenario announced by the UK government itself”

Surprises all around.

There is that, too.

I do not doubt that she is better qualified for the office of the President than Trump. But this is a very, very low hurdle to pass.
