Remember that it is incredibly difficult for people to talk about their problems. So when they do talk, listen to them without immediately jumping in and offering advice that wasn't asked for.
 
Depression and personal hygiene - get over it people
So, quick last note before I back away from social media.... Let's take a moment to talk about my recent bout of severe and extreme depression (you know, because you're all going to be sexing each other up later so even if I bum you out, you'll get that sadness banged right out of you XD)

Some of you were disgusted that I chose to share the fact that I barely showered when I was depressed. Firstly, I don't give a damn what you thought - I was the one going through this alone, not you, and secondly, it's a very common sign of very severe depression so build a bridge and get the hell over it.

Besides, I wanted to die - who cared if I smelled bad? There was nobody for me to have regular social contact with - if there was, they might have forced me to shower. But there isn't, so I didn't and guess what, I'm fine.  

I am still annoyed that people wanted to jump on the whole "I'm here to help you - you need me" bandwagon well after the actual suicide attempt - I can't stress enough how stupid I think that logic is... that part (i.e. the actual attempt) I got through on my own and then Jürgen came to visit before I could try again (with zero judginess and without offering unsolicited "insights" or "advice" - see Germans, it IS possible for some of you to act like normal people :P), so it was very frustrating that some people (two in particular, one of whom has been blocked) felt like they were going to swoop in and save the day weeks after the fact - y'all both should just sit down and shut the hell up because y'all don't know what you are talking about :P

That's probably more annoying than people ignoring you (i.e. having to repeatedly tell people to f-k off who think they are helping you when they are actually not) - I can COMPLETELY understand people not wanting to engage because they don't know what to do or say even if I don't like it one bit...

... although I much preferred those wonderful messages from my heroes who said "Hey, I know you're going through a rough time, and I don't know what to do about it, but I want you to know that I can see you're going through a rough time and anyone in your position would also be going through a rough time." I'm tearing up just thinking about how much it meant to me - I don't expect you guys to fix stuff, I don't even expect you to care most of the time because you know... I'm not that important to any of you personally (but to myself I am my number 1 priority so there IS someone who thinks I'm the whole world - me! XD).

So next time, less with the judging are more with the showing support - or shut your face and ignore me. Those are the acceptable options. And yes, I'm about to jump into the shower. And yes, I got through this without a psychologist or medication. And yes, I'm probably going to be depressed in future. And yes, maybe there will be a successful suicide attempt somewhere along the line - you guys see how shit my situation is here - most of you would also want to kill yourselves if you went through what I have been through here! I love this city but some of the people here are just... I mean... horse excrement is too good a description for them... but there are also a few really awesome Düsseldorf peeps too, even among the RES players :O And they are even willing to comment on my posts and share stuff with my name in it and everything :O \o/ I'm not a leper XD
On the most basic level, movies simply ask for a type of attentiveness that is hard to muster if you're depressed. Cerebral films tend to have a lot of silences and moments where the spectator is e...

+Jon Hiesfelter​ I wonder if that same reasoning applies to Native Americans as well, and, if so, whether or not it leads to the same result.

Of course, this is talking in broad generalizations for both groups of people.

The book is awesome and deserves more love. And it has all sorts of hidden subtext. I mean, when you think about it it even has a Nazi werewolf!
I've just finished reading Michael Ende's The Neverending Story and was flabbergasted by how good it is. How is it that nobody has ever stopped me, grabbed me by the lapels, and demanded to know why I haven't read it since I ...

Since +Sarai Pahla​ posted Valentine-related stuff, I thought I should join.
 
Valentine's Day is a time to celebrate romance and love and kissy-face fealty. But the ancient Romans had bloodier, drunker and more naked notions to mark the occasion.

If you thought American politics were insane until now, you have seen nothing yet. Republicans will go unhinged over this.

Best case: someone who has recently been appointed to a lower bench with overwhelming support (there are a few like that) is nominated, the Senate leadership dithers for a while, and the candidate is confirmed after enough Rs get to the point where they can't be primaried but before the election so it can't be used against them in states where it's an issue.

More likely: Obstructive turtles all the way down.

There were giants in the Earth in those days.
 
What monuments are hiding in your world?

The titans slept, half buried in the earth, waiting for the right moment to pull themselves from the loam and crush any who stood in their way...

’They were wrong, as it turned out. The Chaco seems like one of those parts of the world that’s cursed, or just plain hates people. The more you read about the place the more it seems like a big dry Amityville Horror, a landlocked Bermuda Triangle. I can see some mean geological fault muttering, “Squirt a little goo up there to the surface, fool the bastards into starting a war for the place…”’

[...]

’And yet, the more I looked over Doctor de Sanctis’s photo journal, the less easy it was to make this the celebration of Paraguayan valor I’d intended. More like a nature-documentary scripted by Schopenhauer or Lovecraft. I’m sure the real winner was that Evil Dead Chaco, the landscape itself, and those caterpillars, and those meat-eating flies.’

For the record, if you know of any other fascinating and/or horrifying Meso- and South American landscapes and environments, I’d appreciate it for my research.

This came up on RPGNet:

It has been said before, but it cannot be said enough: GURPS is modular! And not in the sense that D&D or Pathfinder are modular - that additional books provide additional options for player characters which are more-or-less "balanced" against the material in the core rules. No, you need to start thinking about what is "balanced" for your campaign right with the Basic Set, and this is pretty much the single most important task for setting up a GURPS campaign. Allowing characters to take lots of levels of Damage Resistance in a medievalesque fantasy campaign is unbalanced. Allowing a character to take Social Status 7 in a modern-day campaign and play the President of the United States is unbalanced (unless you are playing GURPS West Wing or maybe GURPS Scandal). The rules don't prevent taking these options - but the game master can, and in fact the game master must.

So when GURPS fans tell you: "Oh, you can just ignore these rules - they are optional!" they are not being disingenuous - determining which rules are not used is one of the most fundamental jobs of a GURPS game master. A good example of this is the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy line. Other lines for other games would provide you with lots of additional rules material for the "Dungeon Fantasy" genre, but what this line largely does is which rules are and which rules aren't relevant.

So use those complex jetpack rules if you like them and feel they are appropriate for the genre you are trying to emulate (such as Technothrillers) - GURPS does provide those technical details for those who want them, unlike many other games. But it is equally legitimate to ignore them and just use whatever is suitable for your dramatic needs.

Unlike most other breads sold in Columbus I have seen so far, the bread here is actually edible. Visitors from Europe should still tone down their expectations a notch, however. For example, the bread sold as "French baguette" is much denser inside than the baguette sold in Europe, making it less airy and harder to chew than the original. However, it does have a crust that doesn't shrivel up from fright merely by looking at it. If you are from Europe and crave bread, you might want to take a look at Panera Bread. It won't be as good as back home, but the odds that you will find something better in the United States seem to be limited. Otherwise, you will either learn to live without - or make your own bread.
