This is a genuine significant problem. Scientific ignorance, is astounding. The year is 2014. The other problem is people are being willfully ignorant on the subject. But we don't have to be. It's more a case of deliberate laziness.

Not even apathy, just simply laziness. And many of them are hard-working people. Who just figure they'll let other's do that mumbo jumbo that makes the cellular phones work, or medicines work. And then they elect these people, who go directly against their betterment. And these other people.. keep reinforcing ignorance, and focus on all the things that don't frakking matter.

Gah... what's it going to take? An extinction level event? Even then I'm guessing folks will just shrug and bury their heads in the sand, even though we could avoid the problems, with the knowledge and science we have in this world.

I love science. It doesn't care what you believe, it simply just is.

+Max Leon I saw this and I immediately thought about three quarters of your D&D characters I've seen you play over the last 25 years!! Where one second, everything was okay, and the next your character starts yelling about how they better do this or that... or you will assume your Ultimate Form!

This was pretty damn mystifying and completely watchable in a what ... the ... F?

So I started playing this game earlier this week. Cause "Reasons".

And I have to admit I forgot how much fun, I have playing flying games.

The fact that this is free to play, and really fun, is a nice change of pace.

Figured why not share my thoughts on it for those who may be interested. Especially since I'm jonesing for Star Citizen and that's a ways off.

This.. right here. This is the aspect that folks don't always understand. When they are citing first amendment rights and freedom of speech.

Look. You can say what you want. That doesn't mean anyone has to listen to you. Provide you a soap box to speak, nor does it shield you from criticism or consequences for your words.

You are just given the right to speak those words. And if people start calling you a racist asshole, or an out of touch 1%er, or some other appropriate derogatory term, well that's their right to speak freely as well.

To those who use other VTT's than +Roll20, like Fantasy Grounds or something.. could you touch base with +Michael Tumey if you know what other PPI resolutions your preferred Virtual Table app uses.

(He makes some pretty snazzy stuff, and just thought I'd spread the word.)
 
So I'm about to release the first map object set of 100 objects from my Kickstarter. All are PNG files with Alpha channel transparency and I've pre-formatted them to both 70 ppi (Roll20) and 100 ppi. Since I don't use every VT app out there, I don't know all the recommended PPI resolutions for all of them. Is there any other size I should prepare them for ready use in other resolutions?

I saw this was announced, and I have to admit.

Shut up and take my money!!

It seems to be hinting at a successor to Alpha Centauri. A truly wonderful civ style game of yester-year.

And I must admit.. this sounds like it will be a blast to play.. 
 
Sid Meier's Civilization:Beyond Earth

If this is even remotely close to Alpha Centauri I think we have a winner. Will be really interesting to see more about it.

The roar in the night...
Introduction
Lifelong gamer and Storyteller. 29+ years gaming experience... A Master of Fantasy.

I love gaming, table top, computers, some consoles, and I love good shows and stories. With a typical bend towards the sci-fi and fantasy. 

The things that I find interesting, outside of gaming is paganism (I'm a pagan), science, astronomy, human behavior, artwork and much much more.

I love many things, including the paranormal and all it's esoterica, and so much more. 
Bragging rights
I've beta-tested almost all of the major MMO's that have come along in the last 13 or so years. There are very few I have not tested, and most of them because it's seemed to be a waste of time or the concept wasn't great.
