More public health threats for near future.

In the insightful words of +Petrov Theovsk :
"The British police must hate those special forces dudes. While those have state of the art equipment and freaking self-opening visors, the poor guys still have to be content driving their shitty Camrys around. Come on, future Britain, get your shit together."

Kids, don't do drugs.

Useful insights about space suits and emergencies.
Also a few mechanics.
 
Damage ... Controlled
How fast can you get into a spacesuit? What if I told you it didn't matter? You might expect damage control parties on a ship to be suited and ready for explosive decompression. I have a suspicion that sort of thing is like lifeboats: good for piece of mind...

In my Star Trek campaign, players sometimes like to make use of the life support belts from the animated series. It makes sense, if you could just wear belt that would activate a force field around you, in case of decompression. But then, what if you're ejected into space? Do you hope to be rescued and nervously wait for the power supply to die?

"Old spacers say there's crazy-massive multidimensional tesseract-life forms out there in hyperspace, but I'll never believe it."

- last words of Larx, First Lt. and skeptic

Sure these half-peeled wrecks make for great salvage, but don't let it happen to you! Never doubt that N-dimensional megafauna are real!
Something in warp space peeled the outer hull of this space hulk.

Dumb question maybe, but:

Has anyone as Steve Jackson games ever indicated that reprints or print on demand might ever be a thing?

Dice rolling codes for Hangout chat.
Apparently there are quite a few different sub-options I was not aware of.

The result of "/roll 0d0" is pretty funny, although "/roll 1d0" starts being scary.

Finding your near future/alt history setting just not uncanny enough?

One of the stretch goals for his recent coffee table books was an RPG, and they just failed to make it. I'm fascinated to see what might have come of it.

Story
Introduction
Pursuant to avoiding inconvenience to those with a particular interest in mind, I almost never do Public postings.  Instead most posts will be go to one of several Collections:

  • RPG Discussion - Posts of anything even marginally role-playing game related.  Probably gets the most of my attention. (See GM Merit Badges)
  • Passes  For Humor - Random stuff I found amusing.
  • Pictures By Me - Photos I took or art I did myself.
  • Art Stuff - Other folks art.
  • Music & Videos - Just ones I've enjoyed.
  • Beer Impressions - I keep a list to refresh my own poor memory about what new things I've tried and liked.  Shared here since some other folks seem to take an interest.
  • Family & Friends - Stuff probably of less interest to the general public. My kids are great, etc.
  • Policy, Activism, Strong Opinions, Etc. - Politics, religion and the like. If you want to lose the last shred of respect for me read on!**
  • General Interest - Other random stuff that doesn't fit the other categories.
If you are adding me to your circles and I can't remember you (I'm sometimes bad at this) and you haven't posted anything RPG related before, then I won't circle you back.


** - Note:  I typically attempt to practice Christianity in the Roman Catholic tradition.  I also tend to feel that maybe people in general have a responsibility to look out for each other's well being in some ways that good governance might help facilitate.

My highest aspiration is love of God, neighbor and enemy as outlined in Matthew 22:36-40 and its corollary in Matthew 5:43-46, with the ongoing hope to suck a bit less at doing so than I've been doing heretofore.
