I'm finally getting around to playing this because of my Playstation Plus subscription and I'm enjoying it so far.

Anyone else play through this yet?

Tabletop games and online games can provide community, acceptance, achievements, success, story and happiness when those things are absent or difficult in your life.  People don't understand the mental social and living skills that can be built through gaming.
 
Too few people acknowledge the social benefits of tabletop role-playing games.
D&D has always appealed to introverts with rich inner lives. For my boy, it was a lifeline to the outside world

Me pinguem et nitidum bene curata cute vises, ...Epicuri de grege porcum (You may see me, fat and shining, with well-cared for hide,—...a hog from Epicurus' herd. Horace)

When the Second Schleswig War was over in 1864, the Danes living in Schleswig and Holstein all of a sudden had become Austrians and Prussians and after 1871 Germans, citizenship-wise. From now on, they were forbidden to fly the Dannebrog, the Danish flag, red with the white Scandinavian cross, on their farmsteads and came up with a rather curious idea to show their allegiance: out of Holsteinian and Jutlandian marsh pigs, Tamworth and reddish Angeln Saddlebacks, a 36’' tall and 770 lbs race of red pigs with a white saddle on their backs was bred, thus coloured like the Dannebrog. The pigs were called det danske protestsvin or Danish Protest Pigs and from now on, the Dannebrog was not flying but running about the Danish farms.

Today, det danske protestsvin is one of the endangered domestic animal breeds with only 140 pigs alive worldwide and institutions such as the Arche Warder in Schleswig-Holstein, a centre for the preservation of domestic animals threatened with extinction (https://www.arche-warder.de/en/index.php) and a few zoos do their best to keep the breed alive. And a few found a new home in the open-air enclosure of the #wunderkammer  to preserve the memory of an unusual and very creative form of non-violent resistance.

The picture of the three little protest pigs below was taken by Silke (eska2203_Sil) on June 17th, 2011 at the Gelsenkirchen Zoo and found on https://www.flickr.com/photos/8930168@N06/5922947287

Everyone in a bustling Chinese parade is attempting to elude pursuers, newly discovered cave paintings suggest early man was battling a lot of inner demons, and a xylophonist is shredding it.

Regardless of official support the fact that people are thinking like this and the world press understands that it is a possibility is frightening.

Using such tactics must be a ploy to stir things up and doing it this way at this time is tragic hooliganism.  I believe that Russia, as represented by Putin, uses this particular term with disdain.

Introduction
Michelle thinks she is a bit odd - but that's ok - there are some things that you standard people won't do, and you need her to do them. 

Exceptionally interested in language, philosophy (especially science and knowledge), books, government, film, computer games, and gadgets. Loves oxford commas and hates semi-colons.  Would never ever use the word 'utilise'.
Bragging rights
Have actually read Ulysses. Have not had a commercially connected television for 13 years.
