Therefore the nationalist part of their name is right, and the socialist part is wrong. It's not about what they call themselves. They can call themselves the fluffy unicorn clopper's party.

When I played NWN2, I played a Rogue Pally. He was taking levels in Rogue up until the Obligatory Hometown Eradication, at which point he started taking levels in Paladin. The RP was that, at his core, the dude was a sneaky, snarky, irreverent dork. But after the tragedy he decided to turn around... Somewhat. Turns out Paladins don't live by quite as many rules as he first assumed and he doesn't actually have to give up on stuff like trickery, robbing (the evil), or banging hot tieflings. I do like to imagine though that his Communions with his God (the God of Death and proper burial) were... Interesting.

That'd make a killer NPC, or PC for a level 20 campaign. Imagine a campaign that's a level 20 campaign, except the real protagonist is the NPC reporter who's in way over their head with this old, long-past-cracked adventuring party who keep holding mundane conversations while battling creatures most people wouldn't ever so much as see from a distance. And the other half of the fun is the enemy reactions, none of whom are quite prepared for the party. In a way you're playing the antagonist, because most of the campaign movement comes from the enemies reacting to the party's actions rather than the other way around.

It's not mental gymnastics, it's how nuclear reactors are constructed. They're solid blocks of reinforced concrete, lead, and steel. These are the same materials in the same positions made to make bunkers. Shelling a powerplant is pretty bad regardless, but in neither of your examples, Nuclear or Solar, is the risk of leaked fuel or explosion very high. Solar because there's no fuel to leak or explode, and nuclear because there's several meters of solid fucking rock between the shell and the reactor.

Fukushima wasn't catasrophic, and that's taking into account the fact a botched response resulted in a couple hundred unnecessary deaths. To date, the number of people who were killed in Fukushima due to the reactor meltdown directly is exactly 1. Including deaths via radiation sickness and long-term disease like cancer. It was an accident, and it could've gone better, but calling it a catastrophe is overselling it by a lot.

Why? They're not arguing about it now. You put it next to the plant, in big concrete cylinders. And this is with our current, inefficient reactors which produce loads of long-lived waste. In 100,000 years not only will the material be safe enough to just rub back into the dirt (not that anyone probably will), it won't be being produced any more. Likely because in 100,000 years we'll be harvesting power directly from the hearts of stars and flying around in our spaceships asking Lieutenant Data to mix us a martini.

Yes. People were concerned because the media was concerned.

Solar panels reflect a lot of light and can cause plane crashes or bodily harm if you stand in the wrong places.

When I talk about Fukushima to anti-nuclear people I generally tend to emphasize that, in order to get it to leak even a bit, it had to get hit by TWO natural disasters in rapid succession. There's very little they can say to rebut "God had it out for this reactor in particular and it's the only one that's melted down for decades", especially when they're trying to defend coal and oil power plants which catch fire and leak shit all the time.

Total energy is reduced, but remember that reactors do not use total energy, they use the accessible energy. This is higher in the waste products because they are more radioactive - they're unstable after being put through the first reactor. This allows you to build a more specialized reactor which can more effectively break down these "waste" products. Remember that a nuclear reactor as we have had them in the past use only a small fraction of the actual fuel, due to the design. Most of those old reactors aren't even designed to create energy as anything but a byproduct of producing fissile material for bombs. More modern designs use more of the fuel and are leagues more efficient for it - a specialized waste-fueled reactor, which have been proven to work, would be able to utilize the stored energy even more effectively. Basically you're mistaking the reactor for a perfect machine already, when it's actually highly inefficient due to opposed design.

Again, there's nothing unhealthy in taking comfort of any of those movies/shows. A story does not need to be happy to be comforting. Sometimes it can be comforting to relive the trauma in a controlled fiction to more easily process it, or to return to an old sad story to remind yourself that sadness ends.

In order: Of course there's a connection. It's bidirectional though, and this advertisement does not push any particular body image. No, because just seeing something doesn't make people believe it. That's why kids can play GTA without turning into gangbangers and thugs. Likewise, looking at someone saying "Hey, we can tuck your ears up" isn't going to give someone a complex about their ears. And no, offering a *product* to something *nobody is saying is a problem* isn't going to influence anyone to think something is wrong with it. Do you think people are stupid or something?

I'm not sure what you're saying - that guages and earrings are immoral? People have done things to their bodies to make them look better since the dawn of time, and it's okay. There's no immorality to offering a service to support such ventures, in particular when you consider that the alternative is people doing it in-house and putting themselves at risk. Nobody is getting body issues because someone is offering earlobe surgery. Nobody is going to die because they went to a plastic surgeon about their funny ears. Y'all are making this out like it's some maximal sin but literally all they're doing is offering a safe way to feel better about yourself. Do you even hear yourselves?

No? The cosmetics industry - that's the proper term, by the way, 'cosmetics' - advertises something which is sought after by a lot of people, and a large number of things that *aren't* people. Consider that this industry is older than writing, for a moment. That when it came time for the first cavemen to clack rocks together and call it technology *this was more important to them than information*. Are you going to try to claim that they were influenced by the media? That it was advertising's fault? What about animals that have cosmetics, like Flamingos? Guess the Capitalists are putting chemicals in the water to give the birds body image issues, eh? It's the human condition to want to look good. Been that way since Krugg was trying to figure out if Thagg was born with it or if maybe it was Maybelene. Trying to blame people getting too invested in something literally baked into our biology at a pre-human level is like trying to blame people for getting too into screwing or competition - even if you're right about it being individually harmful no amount of limiting advertisement is going to make it go away.

And I guarantee the scumsucker who made OOP would say something like "India never produces scientists anyway", because HE doesn't know Bose.

They're wolves, so they're not attacking in a hallway, most likely. They're attacking in the woods, where they're easily capable of moving through the underbrush and certainly capable of flanking. Similar things apply for most animals. They don't leave their home territory easily, because not being there is such a massive debuff to their ability to eat. And they're not going to attack a shelled giant because that's obviously going to get them injured, which means they'll starve even if they win. If they absolutely must attack the party, which itself is already implying something afoot given all the clanking and obvious predator behavior that comes from a group of heavily armed apes thrashing through the underbrush, most creatures are going to set up an ambush that maximizes their ability to grab the weakest-looking party member and bug the fuck out with them. They don't want, nor need, four massive human corpses. They don't want, nor need, to fight any more than they have to for their food. They're going to grab the Wizard, and try to fuck off - and if that doesn't work, they're definitely not going to stand and fight, they're going to cut their losses. ​ Animals are calorie maximizing machines, they don't possess a sense of honor or even significant feelings of vengance; they want food, so they'll get the easiest food in the area. A lot of things have to come together for that to be the party Wizard, much less the Fighter.

International Politics are mostly big countries enforcing their will on smaller countries without consent, so enforcing human rights violation on a massive superpower with nukes and one of the largest economies in the world, in particular when even more significant violations are happening in the other superpowers, is understandably if regrettably not on the to-do list for the EU. Plus, people are very rarely willing to stick their necks out for "Criminals", even abused ones. That's why people have been backing these kinds of laws in the U.S. in the first place. Not everyone is on the same page when it comes to reforming, some people just want to punish those who've behaved badly and don't actually care about correcting the behavior.

What I was saying was that the linked passage is saying "If your nutsack gone you're not out of Heaven" Which isn't what's happening with intersex people. They aren't just "men sans nutsack". They've got a bunch of weird bits that probably don't work right and a life to live. It also completely whiffs on trans people, who have a perfectly good nutsack in working order but their brain's mixed up about what should be there. The passage is speaking about eunuchs, not trans people. Which is nice and inclusive... For Eunuchs. But isn't useful for including trans people.

Their purpose isn't to protect bad people, but to make sure the system only prosecutes bad people. They do this by making sure that the prosecutor must have proof of the crime which is undeniable. If they manage to get their obviously-guilty client off with less or zero jail time, well, that's not so much on them as on the prosecution for not having enough evidence to make the charges stick. At least, ideally. Most of the time. Shady shit happens reasonably often but that's kinda just what dealing with humans entails.

Non-binary people aren't eunuchs, or at least don't need to be, and the passage rather explicitly notes staying celibate for god, rather than because you don't want to fuck.

Friend here. Embarrassed is trying to use miniconda to open the webui, and is having issues with installing torch as he said. While I'm significantly more educated in computer science and AI than he, I'm not really skilled in python, which has led to a lot of floundering. As best I can tell something in the path is screwed up and it's telling the batch file for the webui to run python 3.9.12, when by all rights it *should* be running 3.10.9 instead. I suspect it's part of the environment set-up, but I'm not familiar enough with Python to even check, much less tell the program to change the environment's defaults remotely via Embarrassed. I'm hoping some of you are more familiar with python, or perhaps even have had the same experience. Even a small lead would help me help him.

Sonia is a warcriminal, so is Mukuro. Sakura betrayed her classmates to their kidnapper during a murder game. Miu sexually and verbally harasses her whole class. All of which, I think, are worse than the thoughtcrime Haji commits. Not saying Haji isn't worse, because he is.

Far as I'm concerned, actions speak louder than thoughts, and thoughts louder than words. He only really said it to get the girls (I think it was Komaru who was flirting with him?) off his back. If he was abusing Monaca physically and not sexually, despite being a pedophile, that says some interesting (and weird) things about his character. And if he was touching Monaca, I think we would've seen it, given we're all but told directly of the same thing happening with Kotoko and Monaca is even shown using that as a bludgeon.

My dude, you're being unrealistically narrow, AND ignoring the actual meaning of the word. A piece of music can be aesthetic, and thus, categorized as aesthetic. It's a subjective description, not a genre, but that doesn't mean it isn't being correctly used there. You being ignorant of how languages develop and evolve, not to mention ignoring the fact that Aesthetic being used in this context is not a new phenomenon. People were describing things they like as aesthetic like this hundreds of years ago. They will continue to do so regardless of how upset you become at the perceived change. What you are describing is not the word aesthetic, and is not how it was ever used. You're calling me wrong when you, sir, have been objectively wrong this entire time, creating an entirely new definition of the word out of thin air and ignoring common use in favor of juvenoia and complaint. If the statement was nonsensical, Google would not provide a response. If everyone else seems not to know what words mean, perhaps you should consider that *you* don't know what the words mean, and accept explainations instead of going on tirades about how wrong the explainations are to your limited understanding.

The thing is, "problem solving" isn't... A thing? Like, it's not something that you can create or develop, it's something that happens when certain conditions are met. Machines do problem solve, usually algorithmically. What your housemates are probably discussing are the faults in the current way AI is handled, which I brushed on in my post. Right now, most AI, even the most powerful neural networks, are restricted; they may be generalist in design, but in application they're only taught using one or two verbs. The AI draws pictures. The AI drives a car. The AI writes a really terrible grad paper. That kind of stuff. What we've found out recently is that by adding more of these verbs, the AI's capability in *unrelated* verbs grows. So by having the AI learn how to drive AND how to draw, the art gets better. Thing is, most people don't want to pay for the processing power and time that it'd take to train the AI to do hundreds of things, so the status quo remains. But AI has shown it's capabilities are not being met yet, and that it can be significantly more "human" than most people give it credit for. The divide between human thinking and artificial thinking is much, much smaller than people like to think. In the end, all you and I are are advanced neural networks with years of high-capacity learning time on multiple subjects. We do not *think* fundamentally different from the computer just because we don't know all the variables yet.

AI already learn and display emergent behaviors like small children or animals, so I don't believe they really learn any differently from us. They just have much less computational space and capacity for intuition. Indeed, from what I've seen working in the field, intuition is the main thing missing.

This basically doesn't work because Negative Energy is an actively malicious and corruptive force which *wants* to do evil, so calling up a skeleton in DnD is essentially like letting Hannibal Lecter out of his prison for walks around the town; no matter how tightly controlled you're still putting the townspeople at risk, unnecessarily. But I agree, that's boring. I use necromancy differently in my homebrew because a tool being objectively evil is a coward's way out. &#x200B; In Karne, which is the source of my username, necromancy is... Well, just another branch of magic. Indeed, it's used semi-frequently - the Church of the Snow Maiden, the local catholic-like religion, uses necromantic rituals to preform resurrections for extremely wealthy or important people. This isn't common, and you need to get special permission from the Pope every time you do it, so death still is a big deal, but it's well known that some people can be brought back by powerful magics. Necromancy, or Spirit Magic as it's properly known there, deals mostly with the mind. Where Light Magic deals mostly with intelligence and electromagnetism, and Fire Magic with temperature, Spirit Magic deals with the more esoteric algorithms that dominate emotion and the thinking mind. Spirit mages are the ones who can shift someone's emotional state, curing fear, bolstering spirits, or enraging enemies into attacking their allies. It's also the class of magic which deals with animating forces, whether they're regular stone golems or skelingtons. Significant portions of this branch of magic, thus, are outlawed, among them the commonly termed "Necromancy", which is commonly used (incorrectly) to refer specifically to animating the dead. A Necromancer raises the dead by either constructing magical simulacrums to revive the deceased, or by rebuilding their minds entirely. For this reason zombies get smarter the fresher they are, but skeletons are stronger due to magical muscle replacements. Liches use this simulating magic to vivisect themselves and link remotely to organs which can then be hidden in a reinforced "Soul Jar", making them effectively immortal so long as the jar remains unbroken. Necromancy in this world is frowned upon, in no small part due to the influence of religion. This means that most necromancers are also super rebellious outcasts and thus, assholes. People don't look to learn Necromancy unless they're willing to break rules to get what they want, and very important rules at that. Necromancy is not inherently Evil and indeed can be used solely to help, but it's made Evil by the way people react to it; by limiting the kinds of people who come into contact with it in any positive way, by restricting it's users to people who are probably going to be pretty insufferable to begin with. I think it's much more interesting than WotC's "It's evil because vague shadow energy" stuff.

You seem to be under the impression that Antimatter is a corruptive force, rather than just an unstable explosive. Antimatter is not anathema to life, and indeed life is perfectly possible made out of antimatter without any noticable changes. You just need to keep them from coming into contact with regular matter. The two are identical until you either peer closely at the atoms or touch one to the other.

Note that this is exclusively the case in Faerun specifically, and not necessarily in other settings. For example, in Enroth, raising the dead is an Evil Act, but it's not a pollutant one. Rather, undead are just naturally evil creatures like demons and it's bad that way. Attempting to use necromancy on yourself as a good person also will simply just hurt you, up to death if you try to lichify yourself. If OP's DM is using a homebrew setting it's perfectly plausible for necromancy's only violation to be of respect for the dead.

Racism isn't discrimination based on skin tone, it's discrimination based on race. A term who's meaning shifts quite rapidly and consistently. In 1300, racists were British people who hated the French. Complete with talking points about how they were a subhuman group of idiots who were quietly controlling everything behind the scenes to suck. In 100, racists were Romans looking down on anyone from further north than the Alps, discussing how horrible all the "non-assimilating" people who didn't speak latin were. Shit is NOT a new concept. Racists can't even invent new concepts. They scavenge new ones from other causes and crawl in to stink it into a home like some kind of horrible, hateful hermit crab.

Fox didn't even want Trump, they only went pro-Trump after he won the nomination.

A technique he kept up in the Whitehouse, because it's literally the only thing he has going for him.

Alright, so basically \-Every unit has hitpoints, which is 10\*(Reactor Level). To make that a bit more clear it means that fission reactor units have 10 HP, while Fusion reactor units have 20. Quantum units have 30 and Singularity units have 40. The relevant part of this is that the biggest jump relative to the size it was before is at fusion, so fusion reactors are worth having on basically every unit. \-Units have an attack, which is determined by their weapon. That's the number by the side of the weapon on the interface. Regular guns are attack 1, lasers attack 2, so on. \-Some units also have armor, which as expected gives them a defense value. Again, this is listed on the interface, with silksteel being better than synthmetal etc. &#x200B; So, when a unit attacks another unit, the game starts rolling dice. The attacker and the defender compare their attack and defense stats respectively. This determines what the roll means - if the attacker has 10 attack and the defender has 10 defense, it's a 50/50 split, but if the attacker has 12 attack and the defender has only 6 defense, it's 25/75 in the attackers favor. When the roll happens, the result is checked against this balance, and whoever won the roll deals damage to the opponent. I'm not sure what determines how much damage is dealt, but it's pretty steady through the game, which keeps HP relevant. What this means for you is that, for attacking, you want good weapons, and for defending, you want good armor. The cost of adding both is prohibitive though, so designing assault and garrison units is pretty vital. Additional abilities can help support this specialization. Psychic units like mindworms ignore the normal attack/defense calculation and instead have 2 defense and 3 attack, always, and set their opponents to the same. They do not, however, change reactor, which is why getting Fusion helps tame planet too. &#x200B; The highest defense unit in a square, with the highest health (put simply, the unit with the highest chance of winning) is considered the tile's defender and will be called upon to protect their mates. If they fail, all units in that tile take collateral damage, which varies but usually hovers around 33% of their HP or less. This doesn't happen in bunker tiles or cities, which is why such hardpoints are valuable. Artillery always deal collateral damage, making them useful for sieges or pushing through a frontline. &#x200B; Planes don't naturally compare defense, and instead will compare attack directly, with bombers getting a nasty -50% against fighters. So don't bother armoring your planes.

There's no art in rubbing a wad of dyed horse hair over a bolt of cloth either. Turns out there's no art at all. Or at least I'm saying so, and I challenge you to prove me wrong in a way that forces me to be logically inconsistent. Since right now you're attributing meaning to the horse-wad pictures that's being arbitrarily held back from the RNG pictures.

Exactly. Best results involve having a real artist go over it and correct little inconsistencies, because the AI is dumb and often can't do hands. But calling it "soulless" ignores the fact that all human art is soulless too. I can't prove that statement. But then, nobody can prove it's false either. That's the neat part about a subjective application of meaning. *It's subjective.*

You've missed a very important point though, which is that "Humans can create better art than AI" is subjective and not provable. You can't logically follow through on that presumtion because it's based entirely on the personal experience of the viewer. You're also ignoring the consideration that mass production is, itself, a form of quality which both Omniman and the human artist fail at in comparison to the jet fighters and AI artists, respectively. That's an important factor in the matter of execution after all.

Given it's Reddit I do expect a post along the lines of "AI art isn't always better than human art you sell-out! It's all soulless!" Which really is ignoring my point and fabricating their own. In any case, I agree that AI art is almost always inferior to human art. But the point is that that's subjective - AI can even occasionally do hands better than some mediocre human artists, and the idea that the picture has soul and meaning is a fabrication that doesn't actually mean anything; it's assumption based solely on the fact that a human made the art and isn't actually detectable when the picture is presented blind. People will downvote me, but it doesn't really matter. I have enough Karma that I don't really notice the meter moving unless thousands of people take my funny internet points.

Halk would have the advantage at first while Earth reels at magic being real and Halk having actual air destroyers and navies. Then, the tides shift rapidly back to Earth and Halk very quickly finds out why tech beats magic when Earth shows them exactly how many tiny supersonic chunks of lead we've got to put in their heads, as drones alpha-strike directly at their high command silently from thousands of meters up without warning, and as rapid response tactics from militaries which have been forced into adaptability by literal centuries of industrialized warfare shred Halks "I just discovered what nationalism is! I have a flag!" militaries who are used to warfare innovations taking actual decades to come about. In Halkegenia, you need the efforts of a rare upper crust of mage, of a certain element, to spend minutes making you a magic mirror that'll let you communicate with someone distantly. On Earth, even before the invasion, billions of cell phones are produced <i>each year</i> using labor which can be largely done with a couple months' training. Need I remind you that the Nazi's initial success in WWII was almost entirely due to their communications capability being <i>marginally</i> higher than France's? They had radios in every tank. Now imagine that except take all the radios from the French and Belgian tanks, and give a personal, tiny radio, to not just the German tanks but all the German infantry.

I think the comparison is very apt, as while Omniman is hyping himself and looking down on the jet fighters, they are still *flying*. And the idea that flying without a plane is better is mostly subjective, if very understandable. Which is reflected in AI art. They're still doing "art"; putting image to word and thought. Most people think human art is subjectively better and more valid and that's a perfectly understandable viewpoint but we've definitely reached the point where the lines are visibly beginning to blur.

Being bothered by Barbarians is normal, but once you're even kind of used to the game they usually stop being a real threat; Barbarian units can't heal, and they spawn asymptotically - that is, essentially at random, which is much slower than you can produce units. Once you have your first civic, your units can also be stronger than they are, since there's a card you can slot in that gives everyone +5 strength; huge in the early game. Build a small task force of maybe two or three units and put them on barb stomping duty. Focus on the ones closest to your cities, for reasons both obvious and not. If you see a scout with an exclaimation mark over it's head, smash it; it's seen a city and is running home to tell big brother. If he succeeds, the camp will immediately spawn a bunch of horse-riding ninnies and some warriors to come ruin your day. &#x200B; Prince is generally more of a 'medium' difficulty, a total newbie probably would prefer to play on something like chieftan or settler. But it's hardly impossible, either, so don't abandon this run. Consider this a chance to learn and explore, particularly from the AI. Pay attention to everything that the computer does, maybe put some scouts of your own in their territory, and see if you can't pick up some techniques. The AI isn't exactly great, but they know the game they're built in.

Citizens have to work tiles to produce the yields displayed. That is, you have two citizens, so only two tiles (besides the city center) are actually producing. Clicking the citizen head icon on the city's option bar will show you where they're working, but as a vet who knows the AI I'm pretty sure I know where they are anyway. 1- The first tile producing yield is the city center. That's because that tile is worked for free. This tile is producing 3 food and one production, which is pretty solid. City centers remove tile features like woods, or improvements like farms, but if you settle on a resource that resource remains. Remember this if you find something with a lot of production, science, culture, or faith, since it's good to get these things for free. 2- There's almost certainly a citizen working the woods with a deer. The AI prioritizes production a lot, which is smart because it's your most valuable yield. The Deer tile is a good tile too. Each citizen consumes two food and one housing, so since the Deer tile produces two food it's a net zero for food consumption, meaning you're getting three production for one housing. Very nice. 3- The final citizen is probably working the woods. Two food two production is a decent tile, though not a great one, and if he was working the wheat tile, you'd have 4 food in surplus. This can be useful if you want to grow quickly, though in my experience I find housing to be the real limit on growth in this game. It'd probably be quicker, easier, and more efficient to harvest the wheat directly for a 50ish food boost. &#x200B; You should also consider getting Petra in this city. Unless on of your others is somehow even better suited, Petra + Cahokia mound on the three gold two culture tile + nazca lines on the remaining desert tile ought to make that wonder tile insanely productive. Even better, there's two other tiles just like it that should be within the city's limits to work.

That's fair, but that process has already begun at the 60 day mark, and in aggregate it still results in about the same thing - even if each individual is only binging once every 5-6 months, as a group it's unlikely for everyone to line up and as such the peaks will be "smoothed out" into a sort of makeshift average. Obviously if you want to actually be super accurate about things, you need to aggregate and analyze a bunch of different datapoints. But for us, for whom the actual accuracy isn't too important, the 60 day mark is close enough. You can, in general, expect the 60-day-out peak to reflect the various peaks over the whole year.

I mean, I try to restrict weapons so that they're best used in their historical roles. Ergo, Guns are nerfed so that they're at their most useful when fired in a formation at unarmored targets, or a single armored target where a bullet might punch through plate. Greatswords are meant for fighting formations of spears and tend to eat shit when going up against one dude with a more mobile weapon. Not saying I always succeed, but there's a reason guns, crossbows, pikes and greatswords all co-existed. They fulfil different roles on the battlefield.

It's a molecule which looks like Estrogen that's found in plants. It doesn't behave like estrogen chemically because it's a totally different chemical - and that means while it can effect the human body as itself, it's never a replacement for actual human estrogen. There's also the part where you're eating the hormone, not having it injected into you. Generally, this breaks down the stuff you eat... Cuz it's eaten. Most pills have to have covers to prevent this if it happens, for example. The human body doesn't incorporate estrogen from it's foods to a degree which could have any kind of measurable impact on a person. Someone above did the math, and even assuming the phytoestrogen interacts with your body the way the estrogen you produce does, you'd need to eat some 7k+ of these tofuburgers just to get to the minimum hormone level used for transitioning. Remember that Spongebob episode where Squidward ate so many krabby patties he literally exploded? You'd have to do that, and then keep going afterward. It's the same for any food with estrogen in it. You just don't pick up enough of it from foods for it to do anything besides change your odds of breast cancer. Nobody becomes effete from eating burgers, vegan or otherwise. >!They will, however, become insufferable. :V!<

Phytoestrogen is a plant hormone which *looks like* Estrogen. But it doesn't work like Estrogen, and certainly wouldn't interfere in human biology (for that matter, you could drink a gallon of pure human estrogen and be uneffected, because we don't blindly incorporate the hormones of what we eat into our biology.)

Perhaps have it be a reaction event - that is, IF America tries to claim a section of Africa, a signitory from another nation which owns (or has a subject who owns) land in the americas becomes upset. The U.S. is then given a decision to either withdraw their claim, drop the Monroe Doctrine, or do neither for a big infamy penalty and the loss of some prestige and relations with Europe. The AI would obviously be weighted to select keeping the Monroe Doctrine in place and leaving Africa to the Europeans. But occasionally they would get colonizing.

I agree that people are generally kind and well-intentioned. You seem to have misunderstood my post. What I'm saying is, a shitheel person does not need religion to make judgements about other people and be hateful. Hating LGBTQ+ people is not a uniquely Christian phenomenon, or a religious one. It's present in most human societies, because they are a minority population and that makes them easy targets. Dropping religion altogether would not, therefore, necessarily make a better system. In fact, I'm positing it wouldn't make a different system *at all*. Because these people do not hate gays, jews, and liberals because Jesus told them to. They hate them because of underlying psychological issues which wouldn't change if the excuses were made secular. They hate them because they can, because while most people are kind and well-intentioned and won't check a car wreck to make sure the victim isn't black before helping, *some people will*. Those people, that small minority of people, do not represent the whole population. They should not be used as discriminatory arguments against the whole population, or any group. They are naturally, genuinely shit human beings who wouldn't be different if Jesus had never existed, and implying that what they're saying is correct just because they're saying it is buying a bridge on a flat plain. Religion is their *excuse*, and they're using it because people like you will take them at face value and waste time casting doubt on otherwise good people through association.

No, I'm not. That fallacy you're misusing - it refers to when you're claiming some people aren't a member of a group based on *arbitrary* distinctions. These distinctions are not arbitrary.

We recognize how silly, presumptuous, and harmful it is to ask Muslims in their mosque to "admit Osama Bin Laden was Muslim" - that nobody with good intentions makes such demands or decries them when they say he's not like them. Why, then, are we not applying the same to Christianity? These people do not act like Christians are told to. They do not follow the rules laid upon them by Christianity. Many barely even read the Bible. Why give them the benefit of this smoke screen and attack the real Christians when all these people are doing is hanging a cloth with a cross over their horns and calling it a hat? Bad people always profess to be good people. They use little nitpicky wordings and misspeaks, ancient diatribes from ancient hatemongers, and genuine outright lies to do it. But they're never really good people. They're never really members of the group they purport to be in. It's a mask they use to hide from reproach, or to make the people who want them snuffed out strike other, genuinely good people. Don't play into their game - make the distinction clear.

A quest I used to write. Think of it like a fanfic version of a Choose Your Own Adventure novel. The basic premise was "You play Mukuro, except someone's replaced Makoto (in-universe too, Sayaka has a bit of a freakout over it) with a Ultimate-tier schemer. Navigate the trainwreck Junko's plan quickly becomes and try not to die horribly." Besides having some rarepair friendships show up, like Mukuro/Sonia, I think the best thing about that quest was the mechanical decision to give Mukuro a Despair and a Junko Dependency stat, essentially balancing the rate which players can move away from Junko's faction. Lowering Junko Dependency (JDep) required raising Despair, which would slowly limit options and at 100% would just end the quest. Lowering Despair would also usually raise JDep. It made play much better reflect Mukuro's difficulty distancing herself from her obviously abusive sister.

Ovums are not plucked from a stockpile in the ovaries, they're produced from ovarian follicles.

Commented by /u/Karnewarrior in /r/clevercomebacks on December 18, 2022 22:38:02

This is actually untrue. While women are born with a limited amount of ovum producing follicles - more than they could ever need, in fact, with hundreds of thousands; they degenerate in pods though - the ovum itself is created on-site when the follicle matures. This is why part of the menstrual cycle is called "folliculary". The follicles are currently in the process of producing a new egg. A woman does not at any point in her life have a limited number of ovums, because she only produces one, maybe two or three at a time (more very rarely). You can't run out of eggs. Your production facilities simply shut down. This story about limited eggs is a deliberate misunderstanding of the process by people who'd rather see women coerced into traditional gender roles via this weird sort of blackmailing of their fertility. Eggs released during ovulation are not plucked from a stockpile.

They store an absolutely pathetic amount of energy on city-wide scales, when compared to their price. Building a battery that can smooth out the power usage of a city using, say exclusively solar, costs millions, even billions, of dollars, uses absolute tons of extremely toxic, caustic, and explosive chemicals, and requires frequent upkeep. Meanwhile, even the massive arrays being built today are at the end of their rope keeping the city powered overnight. Compare and contrast a nuclear power plant, which provides safe, clean energy for decades which is easily modulated, can power multiple cities overnight with no problems, and uses an amount of fuel in a year that a single person could carry on their back. Indeed, if built properly by someone who isn't eating crayons, they require multiple natural disasters striking the plant directly to fail. And reactors are currently under testing which make even those caveats obsolete. The only reason to build batteries in such a situation is either as a safety net if the reactor needs to be taken offline for a couple hours, or because public opinion has been wildly redshifted on a perfectly viable source of energy.

This means any time two numbers are added or subtracted, even in the most raw, compressed form, it takes a cycle. For most calculations it takes multiple, due to the way maths works in that sort of binary/unary scale. You can process things in parallel; that's why most modern CPUs have multiple cores, and thousands of simple processes in parallel is how your GPU makes modern graphics work at speed. But there's a limit to this. If your computer is trying to figure out (3+2)/10, it *has to* have the solution to 3+2 *before* it can work out what that over 10 is. So even if you put both operations on different cores, the division is stalled until the addition completes. Now consider how many calculations are happening in even one sentient mind. Every emotion is factored into the algorithm. Every minute, indivisible particle of sight has to be processed into a workable image. Every past experience has to be tagged and stored and drawn back up at least in part to see if it has any relevance to the current situation. Possible futures have to be mapped out to make decision-making possible, sometimes using intuition which we haven't even figured out how to make a machine do because it's so complex. Now imagine a galactic-size example of that, forced to process trillions of these images, trillions of decisions, quadrillions of memories, all in parallel, all being beamed back and forth across lightyears. The number of cycles you'd need to complete that would be prohibitive, even if you squeezed your processing time down to a Planck Second; the amount of time it takes light to cross the smallest relevant amount of space possible, a span smaller than a quark. Compare this to offboarding all those calculations onto processors on the bodies themselves, with more rudimentary minds that are simply fashioned to make "the right" decisions when presented with a problem. It won't always work, yes, but it also won't lag like trying to play Crysis on a computer from 1995.

Well, even assuming FTL communication - which Stellaris assumes by default to be cross-galactic and instantaneous, from day 0. Not what physics suggests is feasible as we understand it! - having one overmind micromanaging every drone in their military and navy is really just putting a LOT of computational strain on whatever hardware is running the central mind, for very little actual benefit. This goes for hiveminds too, which is why we don't really see them IRL, but it's usually better to simply engineer the drone through whatever means to enact a set of rules that is *in accordance with* your will, as opposed having them enact that will directly. Rather than have every motion be purposeful and intended, relegating some things to reflex is simply an efficient use of resources. The machine overmind's most optimal strategy isn't integrating everything into one massive cloud server, it's standardizing the subsidiary neural nets of the drones to react in real time in a way that suits what the overmind believes is best, and then the reports are gone over and the networks updated to remove any errors in that action. At no point does the Master node directly control the actions of the Child node, much less waste cycles micromanaging it. Instead, evolutionary phenomena are exploited to essentially evolve a military mind which just so happens to always choose the response most in line with what the overmind would desire.

Igor's job is to upkeep the velvet room and advise the ones inside it, be they Attendants or contractor. This is why the Attendants keep catching feelings.

Not all revolutions were won by blood and violence. England remains a good example, because many of the democratic customs they enjoy today were granted gradually over time through bloodless means, or in response to *failed* revolts. I'll also point out that Louise is most likely heir to the Vallieres since Eleonore is a femcel and Cattleya has anime cancer - Louise will be the only sister liable to bear heirs. Meaning that the queen and the most powerful noble family in the kingdom are both at least moderate; Henrietta leans heavily on the reformer side of things and Louise is a monarchist who's nevertheless very liberal and humanist in ideology. Guiche's brothers don't make an appearance, but judging by him his family is also surprisingly liberal, if snooty, and helping with the water spirit will buy Montmorency's loyalty too. That's a pretty solid political bloc to agitate for reform. Between the pressure from up high and pressure from below once the peasants hear of the proposal, while the bill might get some opposition, most nobles would be incentivised to let it pass, particularly with some concessions to make sure the new House of Lords has some remaining primacy over the new House of Commons. The peasantry get their say in government - granted to them for free by the De Tristains, which if Henrietta isn't an idiot (and she's not) she won't let anyone forget) - the Lords get to remain the pre-eminent political force in Tristain (and indeed gain some power in the decentralization), and the Royals get to keep their cushy chairs and veto powers while minimizing on the revolt risk of the populace.

Of course, Henrietta could probably head that much off at the pass by getting started on a constitutional monarchy. Decentralizing the government in general is good for the lords, and giving the populace a say, even a weak one, would severely hamper revolutionary sentiment in educated populations.

Louise only gets World Portal by the end of the story, and we don't know enough about how the Prayer Book works to force it to appear earlier. Trains are already somewhat underway - Colbert is actively searching for a use for his baby steam engine in the first season, and he finally does with his sky-Ironclad by the fourth season. What makes them not trivial to set up is the fact that train tracks require a shitload of wood, steel, gravel, and labor; iron won't work because it's too soft. You need wood for the slats. Gravel is important for fills, which keep the tracks and thus the train on even ground. And of course, you need a John Henry to beat pikes into the dirt to keep the tracks attached. I don't believe a modern person would be able to build many mass-production lines, particularly in the timeframe of the series, not without Earth help, which defeats the point. Those supply lines are massively complicated and would require dozens or even hundreds of inventions at every single step. There's a reason it took centuries for us to hit mass production here on Earth. Transportation would not be my first go-to: while the transportation of goods is vital, it also requires an established industrial base to begin with. I'd try my best, I think, to follow our industrial revolution, because even I don't fully understand the supply chains there. That means the first order of business is Cheap Iron, which we can use Colbert's steam engine to make possible - vertical shaft mining becomes possible when you can use water to pump water out of the hole. Suddenly a lot more iron deposits open up at that point. Tristain is a land of water too, so most likely river shipping and air shipping would handle the biggest transport problems until supply chains can support a couple railways. Those would be already established and only need scaling up.

First off you can't dump someone who doesn't deserve you &#x200B; Second, my priorities would be to flip Tabitha and/or Matilda, industrialize Tristain, and construct at least a small cabal of characters who know that I know the prospective future and how - but how exactly I even *begin* going about that depends on when exactly I'm put into Saito's body, and some of it is going to be a huge challenge anyway. My personal laptop has several schematics for industrial-era tech saved that could be of use in making Tristain able to out-produce her larger competitors, but I wouldn't have that, I'd have Saito's shit LED gaming rig with four copies of Gal\*Gun and a virus. Reverse Engineering stuff with Colbert is an option but it'd be slower and much more difficult than being able to draw a blueprint and just hand it to him to build a prototype. Flipping Matilda obviously relies on her being around which means she can't have fucked off to the Reconquista yet, she'd have to still be Longueville. Flipping Tabitha would only be particularly effective early too. Both would be difficult to maneuver while maintaining informational security for Tristain's side. And of course, just telling someone you know the future gets you laughed at, not believed, so I'd need to show precognition for at least a small number of things. Louise and Henrietta and Agnes would probably be my closest confidants in this, but I might actually start with Agnes - she's easily the most rational of the three and the one who'd see the most use for knowing what would've happened if nothing had changed.

The sabertooths are some of the hardest things in the game to kill, despite also probably being your first kill, because they like to stalk the player before pouncing and when that fails they usually just run away. What most players find works best is always carrying around a rock buddy. Rocks count as weapons to the game, sharp rocks in particular are good for chopping. If you dodge \*towards\* an enemy while holding a weapon, being either a rock or a stick, your monkey will beat the enemy with the weapon. The reason rocks are preferred despite dealing less damage on the whole is because they're reusable, whereas as the video shows, sticks get stuck in the enemy. Sabertooths take some 4-5 sticks to take down, normally, so what really makes the difference here is patience. If you find it's nesting site, you can usually spawncamp the thing allowing you to hit it more often.

Look up Union Busting, where business owners or anti-worker governments actively intervene in the workers' personal affairs to stop them from grouping together to achieve a goal - i.e, interfere to stop the people from "voting with their wallets" and altering the free market. If the market were truly free, it'd be stuffed full of Unions, which would eventually take it over, making socialism.

Yeah, the gag works with basically anyone's name and any inappropriate bodily bit. Futaba's butt, Aketchi's ass, Ann's Titties, Ryuuji's Dingus - as long as it fits in the box, it'll show up on cards, and people will remark on it's power. There are some truly hilarious moments if you do such a thing. It feels like a normal playthrough right up until Aketchi walks up to you in the train station and tells you out of the blue that Ryuuji's Dingus has grown in popularity.

No one could anticipate the power behind Futaba's Butt. To most people, Futaba's Butt is unseen, hidden behind layers, but for a special few, it's something special only they can take part in. The impact Futaba's Butt had on Japan was beyond anyone's expectations. Even Futaba Sakura, master hacker, had to appreciate the power of Futaba's Butt and request their services. Everyone was stunned when the world forgot about the social phenomenon created by Futaba's Butt. However, it wasn't long afterwards that Futaba's Butt took on a god, and won.

Again, that's not really how it works. You don't take 20% off the 32K just flat like that. It varies based on product and price, and isn't paid on some categories of purchase. Also, most people don't live in Oregon, and that 32K is going to buy you far less because of other taxes you're not paying directly. The U.S' labyrinthine tax system and bureaucratic nonsense have an overhead and that's usually passed down raw in price, which means that the 26K in London would still buy you more than the 32K in Oregon, even if you really did pay those taxes which you don't. In all the states I've lived in the U.S. taxes have been quite a bit more severe than 40K -> 32K anyway. It's not really a fair comparison.

Well yes, but in Dixie culture that's a paternalist thing. And that's where "Uncle Ben's Rice" was invented and branded, with the Dixie cultural connotations in mind. The idea is that by continuing to be called "Uncle Ben's", it hearkens back to an era where white people saw themselves as shepherds guiding black people like sheep in a very literal sense. We called older black men uncles not out of respect but out of a patronizing sense of superiority, where we were graciously uplifting them from barbarism. As you might expect, that sentiment doesn't particularly sit well with the people who know about it, and while the rice brand itself no longer has any particularly racist attributes that old taproot into the racist CSA vernacular isn't something some people are willing to stand.

So it's not like even Santiago is relying on just the threat of being shot. A lot of energy is likely going into getting mentally ill people help and places to safely be. As opposed to the modern day where getting even a mentally sound person with plenty of money psychological help isn't just underfunded, it's socially seen as scamming them. Presumably, the risk of active shooters is almost nil in most societies due to this glut of psychological medicine, and as such the face of crime is significantly changed from what we have here on Earth.

That's kinda the opposite of the Nuclear Ghandi though. The point of Nuclear Ghandi is that, really, Ghandi was a pacifist who would've abhored the use of nuclear weapons for warfare. Yet in the game, due to mechanics, he bombs the fuck out of anyone looking at him funny. Lady Deidre is kind of the opposite in that respect. A lot of their surface mechanics seem to make them out to be peaceful, tree-hugging hippies, but the quotes and lore behind her give the impression of an increasingly dangerous and religiously-motivated sociopath. Less "Atomic Ghandi" and more "Hippie Hitler".

For Santiago, I'd say that the negatives of living with her faction are the positives to other people. In the Federation, what matters most is Duty and Strength. It means you can always count on your comrades; it means that everyone gets the same basic training, so social classes and de-facto caste systems are stymied; it means everyone is armed and combat capable, which means everyone can protect themselves and crime is dissipated by the risk of getting shot back at. It's a country for the kind of people who like rugged trucks and self-sufficiency, who only like the government as a militant agency. Santiago's appeal is in the same places and same reasoning as why a lot of people don't like her. What feels oppressive to one is liberating to another here - what one person sees as making the crimes that do happen worse another sees as a consequence of simply lowering crime. &#x200B; Likewise, with Yang, I don't think you really need to modify his society that much. His faction is very cultish, in that a single philosophy and way of thinking is being perpetually pushed onto it's people. But if you look at it, you'll see that unlike many cults Yang's philosophy is self-supporting and non-hypocritical. It doesn't contradict or ignore itself in any way. In a sense, Yang's biggest victory is that despite all our instinctual revulsion at what he proposes, he's *right*. We *do* treat our genetic code as if it's sacred, despite it being easy to manipulate. You *can't* really tyrannize someone who cannot feel pain or despair or want. Yang's philosophy is entirely self-sufficient; so what if it's based on wildly different axioms on a very basic level? I think it was rather clever, allowing him to have that. Allowing all the factions to have positives and negatives, so that even if you don't buy into them yourself, you can understand why someone would. &#x200B; You asked for the Cult and for the Usurpers, so: **Usurpers** is simple. They're the alien Hive. The end goal is to ascend their leader to godhood, at which point he can come along and either ascend everyone else or elevate them to a complete paradise. The faction is based off trusting that Marr is capable and willing to do this. We're not given a lot of insight however into whether this trust is well-placed; we have to assume it is because the other factions tend to be ideologically whole and run idealistically, with the leaders not really demonstrating much self-interest outside of interests the faction shares. Any misfortunes or pains the Usurpers go through in the process of Marr's apotheosis is retroactively justified by their success: the Manifolds are insanely powerful, deific beings. If Marr is placed in charge of one, Chiron, then he can simply wish away everything up to and including death itself. &#x200B; **The Cult** of Planet is a bit more complicated. They obviously all have a distaste for Humanity, but what does that mean ideologically. In the context of Alien Crossfire, it's evident that the Cult couldn't really have existed upon planetfall. Necessarily there must be something in Planet to attach religious significance to if Cha Dawn is to be more than a scientific curiosity. This means they're not a splinter from the Believers, the Hive, or the University, because all those factions already have religious stances. It's likely they're a Gaian splinter, though they could've theoretically branched from any of the others. The stance of the Cult is quite clear: Humanity had it's chance and it blew it. It's a fatalistic worldview and somewhat emblematic of why the OG factions are better liked in general; the Cult really doesn't have a clear moral stance on how to live well. Rather, they simply have the stance that not living is better than being human. This rather complicates matters for a faction composed of human beings. It's likely their ideology is centered around Cha Dawn himself, bolstered by his semi-mythical origin and seeming immortality without the stasis pods the other leaders use. In this case, morality for the Cult - how to Live Well - is simply "whatever Cha Dawn says". This hearkens back to the old God-Kings of early civilizations, something I wish was explored in more depth with the Cult, but never was.

Traditional African Clothing is made of cloth, leather, and finely tooled hide, not scrounged together skins tied together with sinew. It's extremely intricate, and often covered in designs that are unique to the particular tribe and are highly geometric. They're also often colorful, as Africa has a wide number of natural dyes. They do not usually murder a leopard, skin it with a rock, and just huck the skin over their shoulder with a belt and call it clothing. People have lived in Africa since before they were recognizably people, they *know how to clothe themselves*.

The difference is mostly wide vs tall play. Forests don't give a great amount of any one yield, but they give solid amounts of every yield, particularly with a river. You can get similar results on the right tile with improvements, marginally better results even, but those tiles are rare and improvements don't usually spread themselves. Forests are quick and easy to put up, and give solid returns even fading into the late-game, even if they can't compete directly with more intensive improving. This means forests can be placed quickly to get bases off the ground, and if you want to just forget about those bases and have them be decent bases then that works too. The benefit is in the quick start and sustainability - plus, with all appropriate upgrades each worked forest is a net positive, which combined with pop booming and the eco bonus from other bases can result in a base with dozens of citizens in a matter of just as many turns, which can later be flipped to a more intensive strategy to allow the base to support more specialists. Cutting down forests later can also give bonus minerals, even if that rarely comes up. Basically, forests are for lazy/new players, for kickstarting bases, or for factions with bad planet ratings who can't properly capitalize on fungal pops.

I think your opponent may be a wee bit racist. Or at the very least extremely misinformed on politics. Louise isn't a fascist nor a racist. I don't know about Filipino politics or how Leni feels about Trump but even if they're very similar it's a bit disingenous to insinuate you're a red-hatter unless there's an explicit connection. Here's what Louise is politically, knowing what we do from the anime: \-Louise is a staunch Monarchist. We know this because of the severe loyalty she shows Henrietta, even going so far as to push aside their friendship in favor of the monarch-vassal relationship. We also know she takes a feudal view of Monarchy as well, as she holds nobility to be in high standing by default and tends to see commoners as people to be sheltered by the aristocracy, rather than worked by it. \-Louise is an anti-paternalist, in that despite her heavy Monarchist leanings she's relatively liberal when it comes to government control. Over the course of the series she befriends Siesta and falls for Saito, both commoners. It's clear that while she holds the caste system in high regard, she does believe in some level of social mobility, and that the peasantry is capable of making decisions of their own that are good or wise. \-Louise is NOT an ethno-nationalist, or even a nationalist at all. She shows no particular love for Tristain over Henrietta herself, or sign she believes the state to be any entity greater or even separate from the royal family. Louise believes in The Crown, not Tristain. She certainly never worries about race - what little racial bias she shows in her verbage towards Tiffania is done exclusively in anger towards \*Saito\*, and in every other occasion Louise extends a shockingly liberal and egalitarian hand to Tiffania whenever she needs it. This suggests Louise would be *violently opposed* to an Ethnostate where race was a determinant factor in almost anything. &#x200B; We can't tell if Louise is an abolitionist or not, because slavery never really comes up in the show outside of Saito - and it's made quite clear, then, that Saito's expected submission to Louise is not that of a *slave*, but a *serf*. This is a politically salient distinction, because a slave does not make money off their work and is considered property, while a serf is permitted to make profit (albeit usually a very small one) and is considered a citizen (albeit one with few rights). This means we know Louise's stance on serfdom - a hard "yes" which makes sense given Brimirism's equally firm stance on the subject - but it's not explicit what her stance on slavery is. Many pre-modern monarchists abhored slavery but supported serfdom.

It's exponential growth, basically. Decisions for a computer are arranged in a tree, no matter what they are. The computer can only make a decision if it either has pre-written instructions or it searches X levels of the tree. If the instructions are pre-written it's not even an AI, it's just a script. If the AI only searches one or two levels of the tree it's going to be pretty dumb. If the AI searches some Y levels of the tree that's greater than the above, then it has to check X^(Y) Branch nodes on the tree, where X is the number of splits any given branch has (obviously the math can and likely is significantly more complicated, but those are the significant figures). Consider how many variables each individual building can effect just in it's own country, including one for each building that takes the upgraded building's output as input individually. Those are your branch nodes ***per level***. Then realize that the check has to go at least two or three levels ***deep*** if you want the AI to actually look like it's planning ahead at all and not just as dumb as it is now or worse. You very quickly get into the *billions* of checks per tick, per building upgrade, per AI country. Unless you're running a NASA supercomputer, that isn't a game at that point, it's a picture. And while there do exist techniques to optimize this, there's only so small you can get it, and this kind of predictive AI has a very large "Big O", or limit to it's optimization. &#x200B; I'm agreeing with you by the way, just wanted to give a harder explaination since I actually am in CS.

Luxury goods should probably be that measure, I'd think. Or perhaps better said, "better goods than the expectation" A pop in 1830 might expect only grain but a pop in 1930 is going to be less impressed by being able to purchase groceries. At the same time though, if a pop is wealthy enough to buy Fine Art even though they're supposedly Lower Strata, that definitely needs to factor into their willingness to become radical. It's quite hard to convince people that things will be better under revolutionary government if they're routinely consuming luxuries their parents didn't have access to. It'd probably be really slow to implement a system where a pop looks at the goods they had 20 years ago and adjusts expectations based on that, but it'd also probably be much more realistic. Set expectations for a certain era of the game though would make a lot more sense and be light to implement.

Right now pops are way too eager to be radicalized by minor fluctuations in the economy. There's thousands of open jobs and the SoL for the whole nation has risen by almost eight points, but they're still radical because the Steel Mill's bosses are on a cycle of hiring and then firing and then hiring again some 5k workers. I think radicalization due to work should be moved to unemployment, barring ownership shares since that's relatively minor. People who spend long periods unemployed are much less common and it makes much more sense for them to be radicals than the guy who just got laid off from his job and immediately grabs another one. If there are radicals from lay-offs, they should be very small. Small enough to only become a problem if all industries are firing all at once, because that's a big deal.

Small attendum - the pact isn't for "life", it's simply very strongly weighted to be respected. I can, and have, had rescued factions decide they no longer wanted to be my friend. As an example, playing as Miriam I rescued Zak and so pacted him - I gave him all my tech in the hopes he might toss a couple new techs my way when I couldn't be bothered (I was certain to out-tech him given the difference in our sizes regardless) Some hundred turns later he had established himself as a minor power and I was cleaning up the last remnants of resistance to J E S U S on Planet, and he contacts me to tell me that we're now at Vendetta.

The dog was bred for fighting, and yet if it's raised outside of the ring it's just as peaceful and friendly as any other breed of dog. So I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's not both. Raising a pitbull in a suburb doesn't change it's genetics, but it does change the environment. Dog attacks in those areas are more frequent anyway, not taking breed into account - German Shepherds, Shitzus, and Labradors all attack more frequently when they're gotten for home defense rather than for companionship, which only surprises the astounding number of super biased twats in this thread.

Air reconnaisance by airplane dominated. Air-to-Ground was invented during WWI but only really took off during the interbellum - a period which I'll point out is meant to be simulated in the game. But you're being a bit nitpicky. Air Support refers to Support, from the Air. That includes air reconnaissance, as well as air messaging and air transport. By the end of WWI, airplanes were used extensively both in reconnaissance roles and for messaging between battle groups, as the above citation states. Air Transport was also being built upon, although it'd be years before that particular field made significant improvements. You're also ignoring the wider point of the post, which was that the period of WWI saw, *in general*, many technological advances directly to warfare that were implemented. Another example of this besides the militarization of the sky is the concept of gas attacks, which played a large role in the perception of that war, and apply the same debuffs in game if you try to introduce them mid-conflict. It's an unrealistic approach to warfare, in general. While it does make sense for your troops to need to get used to new equipment, it's all but commonplace for equipment replacement to happen during a war, simply because the technology is invented then. Few modern wars are fought with the same technology beginning to end unless they're very short indeed. The debuffs in the game need retooling to better reflect the decision a commanding officer would need to make when deciding whether to introduce new equipment in the middle of a conflict. Certainly giving a small portion of my troops bicycles shouldn't make my trenches less effective.

I mean, a Dyson Swarm is going to provide more power than any fusion power reactor of reasonable size, so... Remember, Fusion power isn't *free*; you still need the hydrogen fuel, in whatever form, and you need energy from the reactor to keep the reaction going by simulating a high-pressure and high-temperature environment. It's plausible to make one that's net positive, and surely will become more efficient with time, but you're never going to match the output of even a fraction of a genuine star where those conditions exist naturally.

That's making a lot of assumptions for optimal use cases, and disregarding the fact that energy usage in California is going to grow exponentially in the future, necessitating exponentially more batteries. So one of the richest states in the union spent a boatload on one of the biggest battery arrays, and it only is a net positive when used optimally. *That* is the problem with renewable energy. *That* is why we need nuclear power as, if nothing else, a stop-gap. Because running battery arrays the size of small cities isn't going to be much better for the environment than a coal plant - especially when a California wildfire hits them.

[]( Aircraft during WWI were mostly used as scouts, but given we have dudes on bicycles scouting as a thing we can do it's definitely relevant enough to include. By the interbellum Air-Air combat and Air-to-Ground was a growing concern which only continued to grow as we transition to WWII and Hearts of Iron. What's perhaps a bit silly is that swapping to planes partway through the first World War degrades *all your stats*, meaning using this new technology for reconaissance somehow damages your ability to defend your trenches. That's a bit silly, and certainly not realistic given integrating technology into military affairs was a major part of wars during this period.

Scalable in the sense you can always add more generators, perhaps. Solar and wind, however, scale very poorly in response to demand - a solar panel will always generate the most energy at mid-day, and no energy at night, which doesn't always line up with energy usage. Wind and solar necessitate the use of huge, explosive battery banks or hydro storage (which isn't always possible for the same reasons hydroelectrics aren't), nuclear does not. Nuclear is also cheaper to run and maintain - constructing a nuclear plant is extremely expensive, but keeping one going is actually very cheap due to having very few moving parts.

This is true, but upgrading your gear during war is also kind of important. Tanks and air support weren't really a thing in most armies at the beginning of WWI, and yet they dominated during the endgame. The current system fails to reflect that and in fact suggests that whichever side got the new tech *last* would've won. Some kind of curve is probably best. It dips down a bit a couple weeks after you introduce the new tech, but then quickly matches the old tech and starts crawling up to full capacity as the troops become used to the new machines of war. It should probably also cost a lot of money, probably by having double resource usage or something. Introducing the new tech is then a question of both how long you think the war will continue for and how desperate you are for that edge - it's expensive to introduce the tanks, but it will give you an edge over your opponent. You'd still want to keep your troops equipped during peacetime to avoid the debuff for swapping over and the increased resource usage, but that was a real strategy IRL too and it should be situationally viable in game, I think.

I think she can be held responsible for what she did in Fenris. We don't know exactly what she got up to, but it's pretty clear that those guys weren't exactly the good guys. But I don't think blame can be apportioned to an abuse victim for their actions at the behest of their abuser. Mukuro was coerced into doing that stuff, she was under duress. If any blame lies with her for what happened, it's a pittance compared to what lies with Junko, because in the end it simply wasn't Mukuro's choice or will.

I think IF should be considered canon. It was very deliberately canon-compliant and was obviously heavily proofread for consistency errors, much like a mainline entry to the series. It's kind of like how Spiderman's had a couple dozen different origin stories and none of them are any more or less "canon" to Spiderman for it. I agree our time with Mukuro was cut short, which probably harmed her potential fanbase, but I don't think disincluding IF is the proper way to frame it, and that's why you're having trouble understanding why she still does have a big fanbase. For a lot of us, Mukuro's character concept was all hooks, and the mystery behind her made her interesting. IF and school mode helped to fill those gaps with someone who was startlingly kind and giving for... Well, a mass-murdering terrorist and war criminal. The contrast is what makes an interesting character though. It's the dichotomy between Mukuro-the-Soldier, where she's cold and emotionless, a killing machine with no morals and no remorse, and Mukuro-the-Girl, where she's blushing and stammering trying to talk to her crush and putting herself down in the mirror, feeling unworthy like a lot of teenagers. She's a character who was forced into lonliness, but who had a soft side that just needed someone to help bring it out. There's a reason why the interactions I like to see most in Mukuro fanfics aren't about Makoto, but the other students. It's that gradual opening up, watching them realize Mukuro isn't just a stoic gunman, and seeing someone else feel that attachment and desire to take that lonliness away. Mukuro/Kyoko is one of my favorite rarepair friendships for this reason - both of them are lonely and isolated stoics, and them opening up to each other is wonderful to read about. If kinda rare. :/

Yup. Whatever industries you build in a state will make little cities pop up, with their own unique names. Upgrade the industries and the little cities, once small towns around a factory, will eventually become sprawling urban metropolises. It's really, really neat.

People put too much weight on first impressions and minor slights, and not enough on the deeper causes of the behavior, or the circumstances that caused the development of a character's philosophy. Criticizing someone for being "an asshole" in a game where over 50% of the characters are actual murderers is just so... Lame. It's like walking into an AA meeting and deciding someone's attempts to get dry aren't valid because they're wearing a tacky shirt.

She has characterization in School Mode as well, which you're not taking into account. Mukuro is a woobie character. She did a lot of very bad things, but just like how we don't blame Sonia for the mass murders she committed while Despaired, I don't think Mukuro can be blamed. She was being controlled by Junko for longer than anyone else, through much more realistic, grim methods. She's an abuse victim who was bullied and taught to enjoy the negative attention because she had it forced into her head that that was all she deserved. She slavishly devoted herself to someone undeserving out of a sense of obligation which was pulled, warped, corrupted into a deep hook into her soul from which Junko could force her into doing anything. All Mukuro herself ever wanted was to be a badass warrior woman who protected her family. All Junko ever saw was an easy puppet. And when the abuse ended, it was with a very literal backstab from the person she trusted most. None of the above is taken from DR3 or IF - all of that is said either outright or implied by her FTEs. Even filtered by her disguise, obvious bits and Mukuroism's shine through, particularly when you actually know what Junko sounds and acts like. It's easy to tell when Mukuro is trying to impersonate her sister, and when she's having a genuine reaction to something Makoto did. I don't take IF to be an alternate version of her character, because at not one point does it contradict anything established prior in a way that isn't justified by the circumstances. Indeed, most of Mukuro's FTEs show her allegiance to Despair is essentially hinged on her fundamental misunderstanding of Junko's desires, and her implicit trust in family. With that broken, she has absolutely no reason to remain. And in IF, we see exactly what happens when that trust is snapped all at once. There are no bad Dangans. But likewise, there are no perfect ones. Acting like Mukuro is something unlikable simply because she did something dozens of other characters did only shows your own bias.

I used the img2img function (I'm using a webui that makes it simpler to use), and I used the faction leader portraits. I whitelisted masterpiece and best quality for obvious reasons, along with some basic tags that describe the leaders. Stuff like "older man" for Zak, "orange hair" for Miriam, that kind of thing. I also blacklisted a ton of tags that would fuck up the generation, like "low quality" or "text" - I wanted neither of those things, obviously. The generator definitely has a bias towards waifus, all of the men were much more of a struggle. It seemed a bit confused with Santiago too, but that was mostly a case of arbitrarily giving her extreme babyface - I actually picked the least babyfaced one I got of her. Much of the 'work' of AI generating art is tag pruning and regenerating portraits when you don't have a good one. It can take upwards of an hour on some complicated gens. There's options to gen in large batches, but I generally advise against that - doing that means waiting for ages to see the results. I find a batch of 4 or 5 works best for looking for a new solution. More than that and you're spending too much time waiting, less than that and you're not quite getting the full scope of what that set of tags can generate. I might post Giga-chad Zak soon, if people really are interested. It only looks vaguely like him though, as you might expect given what I eventually went with.

People try to get together and collectively create the means of production all the time. They're stopped, *illegally*, by bad actors in the market who are willing to bribe and cheat to hide their crimes, or worse, pre-emptively crushed by even badder actors who see the efficiency of simply paying the government to make this kind of production illegal - which they then display as non-invasive government to people like you. There's a reason anarchism and communism are on the same far left end of the scale. There *are* two ways to get powerful unions: either you cut the throat of the government entirely, or you coerce the government into cutting the throat of anyone who tries to pressure away the natural free market.

The right wing is no longer in the business of policy or platform. Instead, they simply view the entire political arena as a competition, like a sports match. What happens during the game is largely irrelevant as long as victory is achieved at the end. And when that victory is achieved, there's no goal to accomplish, the goal has been accomplished. You begin arming for the next match, preparing for the next conflict. You don't need to agree with your party any more - it's your party, and you simply support it. Policy is irrelevant. That kind of thinking leads to what we see here. Blaming the left for everything bad and taking credit for everything good, regardless of circumstance, is their version of a Bills fan blaming the Dolphins for everything wrong and giving praise to their quarterback for everything right. It's not political debate, it's political spectacle.

I had to basically cut Sending out of my setting, or the warfare just wouldn't make sense. I wanted 16th century tactics - giving every army a small battery of radios would get in the way of that. Everyone in Karne knows how to cast Ignite, which is basically the lighter spell. But while there are long-range magical communication solutions, they're really advanced Light magic - thus, not only are they restricted to the clerical class by religious law, even then only the most learned bishops know how to use them. Kind of like resurrection; you need papal approval for that, so most people stay dead when they die and very few people get rezzed even once, much less multiple times. That said, wizards in the military are pretty common. As armies professionalize and begin standardizing training, more and more advanced spells are added to the cirriculum. Some advanced armies have their foot troops trained to throw out a small barrage of firebolts as they charge the enemy, though it's rarely as effective as a dedicated musket regiment.

I grew up on Might and Magic so I've always had the base of my health potions be Widowsweep Berries, which don't taste bad and aren't toxic. Widowsweep Berries are slightly spicy and eaten raw can be very dry (they're filled less with pulpy fruitflesh and more a sort of peppery powder) but grant a small bit of healing, usually enough to staunch bleeding but not actually close a wound. My worlds usually come out looking more like Skyrim in such instances, because people will occasionally drink health potions with their meals if they can afford it - it's basically spiced berry juice. My worlds are usually higher magic though. Not only is "Alchemist" the sort of job any peasant can aspire to and not be completely unrealistic, most commonfolk can cast minor cantrips because prestidigitation is just so goddamn useful it eventually trickled into the general populace. In fact, "common" magic is one of the four major groupings of the craft, the other three being "academic", "adventurer", and "military". Common magic is basic and household useful, academic is usually useless for anything but research, military is stupid powerful and stupid slow, and adventurer is the kind of magic your wizard uses to zap goblins because it's deliberately quickcast by default.

The addition of Sending would also completely change warfare similar to the radio. Sure it's a 3rd level spell, but the more mages you have with Sending in every slot the better your squads can communicate with an HQ who doesn't need to be on the field and can collate that information into a cohesive whole and then coordinate the squads. I can imagine an academy of magic *specifically* for these NCO Sending Operators, where everything they learn is specifically designed to get them to Sending as quickly, cheaply, and easily as possible.

More mechanics to control information between civs would honestly be nice in general. It's *exceptionally* strange that not only can two civs with with friendly and trade-heavy relations, who're right next to each other, not ask each other to get better access to resources to boost trade, but can be in wildly different eras. Going to another continent and finding a new civ who's still in the middle ages makes sense, but if my Greece is right next to Portugal and we're not only buddies but trade partners, it's really strange that I don't even have the *option* to give portugal some of my techs. Really, it should spread naturally along trade routes and borders, on a delay. Science-heavy civs still have an advantage in tech, but there needs to be more rubber banding in that arena both for realism's sake as well as just being a more interesting game than twenty civs throwing useless men-at-arms into a single unit of infantry.

Someone else suggested hiding the resources behind a generic type to represent this. So instead of being able to settle on horses before you know how to use them, which would be weird in-universe, you'd have several "hunting" plots or whatever, and only after discovering the tech to reveal them would you know if they're Horses, Cattle, Sheep, Deer, etc. That way the game could still say that there's a resource on the plot to be exploited, as ancient peoples would definitely hunt horses. But you the player couldn't purposefully settle near horses, only settle at good hunting sites and hope that they're horses. Likewise, building a district over the plot would be a bit of a gamble because you'd be sacrificing the potential tile yields of a bonus resource (harvested or otherwise) possibly for nothing. You wouldn't know if you put your campus on horses, sheep, or cattle until you got the appropriate tech, only that it's something like them - is it worth potentially losing an early game boost of 200 food to possibly get free horses? Are you losing out on a gold tile in your bid for iron?

Actually that does kind of make sense - ores usually look distinct. If the ancient scouts' information is still there, and they described the rocks in the region, modern scientists might be able to know it's pitchblende and thus an ore for Uranium that could be exploited. Combined with predictive geographical data from a description of the landscape and the assumption becomes plausible, if not really an actual certainty. Civ doesn't usually display the resource until your civilization has an idea of how to use it. But it's still there. So really, your scouts are just giving your immortal ruler a really good description of the hex, which is then stored in an infinite time vortex until it needs to be checked again. Totally plausible.

I always try to buck stereotypes with those sorts of things. Try to accurately represent speaking with something with that kind of mind. Plants and insects and such get one-word answers only, just kind of basic impressions of what's going on. Trees in particular would speak super slowly, not really slurred but almost slow motion. A Spider would have a sibilant voice with some chittering. But none of them are going to hold real conversations. Bigger animals are more likely to have real things to say, but none of them will speak perfect common. Dogs and cats communicate like Whataboutbunny or Billispeaks, in sentences of two or three words. Complicated desires, but they don't really see other things as "real" in the sense of themselves - they rarely ask questions of others, particularly if investigating personally is an option. Closest to speaking with an actual person would be communicating with an ape, a corvid, or a dolphin. They'll actually use proper sentences with you, although they're not going to be particularly bright or educated for obvious reasons. A raven might be haughty as hell though.

We attack with little warning, and when we do attack, it's cruel, unusual, and often results in mutilation. We're determined too, so just running away will rarely make you safe. An ape will hunt you down, tear you apart, and leave you to bleed out on all those weird flat rocks they leave lying around their nesting sites. If you're lucky, they'll stab you with a little tiny spine and force you unconscious, and you'll wake up in a cage surrounded by the monsters with a strange ache in the back of your head and wounds all over because they can't even bother to let you be awake to fight back when they mutilate you.

Well the breeders failed, because pit bulls do not have extreme aggression unless someone is fucking around and making them think there's a threat. My German Shepherd has the same response and he's definitely not a pit bull, so holding this one specific breed responsible for *being dogs* seems a bit counterintuitive.

Exactly. Better than a lot of games which either get no significant upgrades, have literally everything gated behind six 20$ DLCs, or go broke because they have huge teams of people working for free updates. As long as the content in the DLC is worth the price, but the game continues to grow and not having the DLC doesn't heavily impact a lazy vanilla playthrough, I think it's fine. Something has to give somewhere.

The U.S. system was explicitly structured to allow minority political groups to stonewall the shit out of the majority and it's only gotten worse as more and more complete twats realize they can simply use that system to stop the government from functioning at all, allowing them free reign to block popular policy.

It'd probably need the system to divorce the elections for upper house from the elections for national leader, which is no doubt going to be in an expansion pack if anything. It should be tenous, yes, but I don't think it should be impossible for some government types. Perhaps tying it to interest groups would be more fitting - the core interest group of a fascist party should always be super xenophobic and hate pluralism, so tying those beliefs and traits to radicalism when the nation leader isn't also in the ruling interest groups would probably be a good way to represent this.

It's the lowest point in Shinji's mental breakdown. I disagree with wolf's statement that he's a hair-width from killing himself - Shinji WAS at the point of killing himself, he just was so far beyond that line he couldn't even bring himself to do it. The kid was in a grief spiral so deep and dark he may as well have been drugged. This is miles and miles of PTSD most 'Nam veterans don't have mixing with lust and love for Asuka as well as fear and anger over the same. He even culminates it with a rejection of the self. &#x200B; Basically, the scene is there to drive home exactly how bad shit has gotten. Really, really fucking bad. The only pilot who's still active and awake is so cracked at his core that he's fapping over the comatose body of the girl who went comatose like 5 episodes ago. He's gone completely insane.

Seen a lot of shit takes blaming Shinji for what happened in that room like he's a malicious psychopath But it's a new degree of shit take to blame *Asuka* for it what the fuck &#x200B; For the record, nobody's to blame for this except obliquely Gendo, who put Shinji in mental breakdown mode to begin with. It's the culmination of a 14 year old boy being put through shit which would break fucking Rambo like a pocky stick, he has about as much control over his situation here as an autistic kid being forced into a group project has over the project itself. It's a wonder he still has the presence of mind to regret it, honestly, he can barely be qualified as sentient at this point he's so fucking depressed.

Trump and the right were always the snowflakes. That's why they're constantly complaining about stuff like Death the Endless being black in the Netflix Sandman, even if she behaves the same and acts the same and does all the same things and even canonically could be black if she ever got bored of being a hot goth. But they just cannot handle the idea of a black person being the same thing as a white person so the change is significant to them.

Well obviously they've been discredited, I mentioned as much. But there were definitely rumors going around about several Ministers at the time. Some were taken more seriously than others, and none turned up any actual evidence, but they were investigated.

Perhaps multiple leaders for an IG, each providing influence on the group's policies depending on their popularity? Combine that with a system to track if those individuals are radicals or not and you can model much more subtle effects on the large-scale group dynamic. Groups IRL are influenced by big names in the IG after all - and an event that makes one leader suffer a massive popularity loss and that resulting in a change in IG politics, or that makes a leader radical, would also be a more immersive way of handling the current effects from the events, which are good.

That didn't stop some other people, but you might still be right. Third Impact was a bit weird about who it picked up - Asuka was dead before it all fell down too yet she's clearly alive after.

He strangled her because he hated her. He stopped strangling her because he loved her more. It's likely he still thought he was in Third Impact, as he wasn't out for long and definitely didn't look all there upstairs until the very last few frames. My question to you is, he saved Asuka, but not Misato. Why? Both died around the same time. He pulled out Asuka, but not Kensuke. Why? He liked Kensuke. He stopped strangling Asuka; do you think he would've done that with Gendo? End of Evangelion's ending doesn't make sense if Shinji doesn't love Asuka. She constantly pushed him away. If he just wanted companionship, he could've chosen almost literally anyone else. Hell, Hikari is right there if he's just a teen who wants no competition for the pussy. Yet out of everyone, he picks Asuka. On purpose. Why?

It can be this because it is both a source of American power projection across the world, and Jewish. The enemy is weak and strong. They are also the ally, except not really, but we'll say they are. It's a philosophy of saying what wins over everything else - the nazis did this as well; Asians are bad, but the Japanese are okay? It's contradictory and stupid, but they get around that by saying it so firmly and so often and saying similarly dissonant things so much that by the time you actually bring up one knotted statement's problems everyone's moved onto the next vapid thing to talk about and eventually the contradiction is simply taken for granted.

I may have misunderstood the assignment, maybe I'm just old and working off an old version's rules, or maybe I'm just crotchety about Paladins catching shit on the regular about being edgy assholes but, in my opinion: If you are not a good person, *you are not a Paladin* It's not about religion. It's not about an oath. It's not about some ethereal concept of faith, or even about wearing plate armor and and sword-n-boarding baddies. It's about doing your best, for everyone, to make everyone as safe and happy as possible. The perfect Paladin never has to draw his sword, because he's always thinking about how to save everyone, even the people he's fighting. Being a Paladin is about believing so strongly that everyone can be saved that you start to live your life by it. It doesn't matter why you believe it - if it's a rational idea you've come to after evidence, or if it's because you follow a God who says so - If you're the one who deals non-lethal damage so you can engage the Bad Guys in a dialogue, that makes you a Paladin. You don't need to be foolish about it. Sometimes people come into conflict and you need to stop it, and just knocking someone out won't work for whatever reason. You don't need to be a technical pacifist or something. But it's about the Hope, it's the optimism. If you don't have that, you're not a Paladin. If you're not playing Superman, real Superman, the optimistic, relentlessly Good big blue boyscout - you've messed up. You've missed the point.

If the AI refused to trade with every single nation that had negative relations with them that's an exploitable, unrealistic circumstance. France having a reason to believe they'll be at war with Prussia isn't a variable. The computer doesn't understand that. You need a decision tree. The AI already prunes options based off what's happening in the present, but it can't trim everything, the possibility space is too wide. Just because they're a rival and contest lands doesn't mean they shouldn't trade - what if Prussia has access to a certain good which France needs to conquer them and the real strategy is to trade for it? What if France just doesn't really need that cored territory and should be worried about England who has historically high relations with them but is about to come into conflict with them in Africa next time the invention timer ticks over? It's not just "not a single line of code", your 'simple check' there is a multi-page function incorporating multiple other functions and thousands and thousands of calculations which you're expecting to be made by every country in the game every tick of the game for the whole game. Complicated calculations which can't be offloaded to the GPU, which have to be routed through the beefier, slower datacenters in the CPU. Calculations which, in addition to being exploitable and wrong, are slow, unwieldy, and result in stupid behavior. I work in Computer Science. I've built AIs that learn and judge new situations. I have not yet built a machine which predicts the future, because nobody has. It's simply not possible to judge the full possibility space like that yet, even to the flawed degree of a human. What you're describing, working the way you think it will, is a technical impossibility. It doesn't exist yet. Dozens of skilled engineers with human lives on the line couldn't design a system which did it using all the cybernetics they could pack into a Tesla - what makes you think the guys at Paradox can invent something which works on a laptop owned by Joe Blow that spends most of it's processing cycles fighting the virus he picked up from a Pornhub ad?

Getting a computer to think ahead is ABSURDLY difficult even for something simple like that. Remember that a computer is a machine, you can't just have it select the likeliest branch of the tree off intuition like that. It has to manually check every single possibility in a game with hundreds of resources operating in real time with a constantly shifting political atmosphere factoring in as well Basically what I'm saying is that you'd be hard-pressed to get a NASA supercomputer to think ahead like that, much less something that'd work on a commercial system.

They wouldn't be experienced if they weren't discriminating in their targets. They also wouldn't be experienced if they took unnecessary risks with their kills. Ergo, they wouldn't kill during the killing game, because it would put them in too much danger. Why take the risk? They can clearly defend themselves, so they're probably not going to be a victim. And as experienced killers, they're well-suited to seeing the techniques for obscuration that they use, so they're safer as one of the class than one of the blackened.

>Here I was, thinking the variants evolved in response to the vaccines.

It does not, no. Different variants of the virus came about, but only after significant lollygagging from people about getting vaccinated, and those variants arose in unvaccinated populations because that's where the virus thrived. Those variants are also fought off by the regular vaccination, just to a lesser degree. The booster shots are to patch holes.

>it shows you just group each individual race based on stereotypes ...Or phenotypes. You know, the actual differences people see. Anyway, I'm glad you think I'm racist - people who use anti-racist rhetoric to hide their racist ideas piss me off, so the fact you're mad I don't want to control people based on the color of their skin means I must be doing something right. Double that with your assumption that it's about whipping black people (most raceplay is the opposite, actually) just because you're uncomfortable with admitting that people have sex between races and yeah, pretty happy I'm not in your good books. What makes me sad is that you're not alone in being a racist piece of shit - there's a lot of people who're so determined to keep control away from the people who deserve it, and they all use rhetoric like this. Assuming the other poster is white just because they don't post in ebonics or don't agree with your racist ideas - and then when someone calls them out they try to say "well it was obvious" or "Well it's still racist because it puts a physical and consensual collar on someone and not the metaphysical and nonconsensual one I want". Ironically you touch on another point here, that being nonconsent fetish. It's one of the most popular fetishes among women, or at least it was last I checked. It's also linked to the BDSM community and kink play. And importantly, it's probably another thing you understand only through seriousness and actual rape, without even considering the idea that someone might give consent for it. You've eliminated all nuance to preserve your black-and-white view of the world, which makes sense for a racist prick who assumes nobody will talk back. You're pulling this same shit in other subs too, where you accuse people of being racist or sexist or transphobic out of nowhere and then double down, claiming to be in the right. It is, frankly, pathetic. Almost as pathetic as your attempts to shackle african-americans to your WASP sense of sexual morality.

Having a fetish does not contribute to racism, whether that fetish is for a specific race or not. That's silly - you're attributing a particular preference for a hostile and - importantly - *ignorance-fueled* way of looking at the world. Being into raceplay does not, and never has, implied that you're ignorant or are racist in real life. Indeed, it implies the opposite, as multiple studies have found we fetishize topics seen as forbidden; that is to say, people who live egalitarian and raceblind lives are more likely to have raceplay fetishes. It's just how psychology works. You're looking for villains where they don't exist. Calm down, and reassess.

It's not racism if it's restricted to the bedroom and it's consensual for the purposes of arousing someone. That's a fucking fetish, my man. If you're going around dropping the N-bomb on all kinds of people on the regular, or if you're doing it out of anger or hate, that's racism. But if you have a consensual partner *asking you to call her that* it's not racism. It doesn't matter what races are actually involved, as long as it meets those criteria.

Yeah. I don't think it'll be easy to make money off AI generated artwork anyway, unless the software is proprietary. Using an open AI to generate art and then selling the art is going to be hard when people realize they can get the product for free with some clever wording and a bit of tooling. And if not, well, that's their money and their prerogative. AI art isn't a threat to the art world any more than the printing press was, even under the already-strained assumption that classical art goes the way of the illuminated manuscript.

There's this one settlement in the corner which is right by a lake that's got dozens of hippos in it that's just perfect for the newbie ape. Hippos are notoriously helpful creatures and have never been recorded to kill players, you can just walk right up and touch one. And the nesting site is plenty far enough away not to bother them anyways and is definitely not directly next to their spawn zones. Sure there's lots of snakes and foxes around that can be a pain, but the proximity of the hippos means you don't need to worry about them, especially if you allow the hippos to enter your nesting site peacefully, like hippos are known for. Famously friendly things hippos. &#x200B; I'm joking, go for the big fuckin' rock in the middle, or one of the smaller ponds nearby it. Try to stay away from the elephants until you're confident you can take them on and be wary of the hippos regardless because they're assholes.

His ideology need not be harmed by being disproven, is my point. There's plenty of people walking around fully convinced of the fact the Earth is flat despite supposedly not only believing in science but also having been in Airplanes where the curvature of the Earth is visible if you peer at it. And Nagito is already a bit unhinged. It'd be quite easy for him to believe what Da Vinci is saying on the surface while still believing in his initial talent-first ideology. It wouldn't be the first contradiction in beliefs held by a person and certainly wouldn't be the last.

1: Possible. The man vs Environment motif of the first volume is going to be a lot less visceral in a game where oldowan tools are a "starting tech" 2: Firemaking and domesticating dogs might still be outside the timeline presented, if we remain entirely within Homo Ergaster/Erectus' time on Earth. Dogs definitely happened after Cro Magnons and Neanderthals show up, and firemaking by Homo Erectus appears to still be under some debate. 3: Bows and Arrows are very recent inventions and are almost certainly going to be something for the third volume, if they show up on the timeline at all. Compound tools in general arose only 300,000 years ago, which is likely to be close to the end of volume II if present at all. 4: This will probably be the case. Tribe complexity and the beginnings of specialization would make for historically relevant, mechanically useful upgrades. If we assume the invention of compound tools to be something which happens at the very end, then the development of language would be a major focus with proper language as we'd recognize it being a late-game upgrade. 5: Building on the prior, I also think there'll be a tech tree. However, I suspect it won't involve complex tools or more advanced home-making, but more complex sociology and the outcomes of that. Tools still have a ways to be upgraded before they become truly complex, and development of communications skills is *huge* not only for inter-humanoid communications but the things it was useful for in Volume I as well. 6: Agriculture would be a huge technological leap from where we left off, with oldowan tools and the latest advances in management allowing for someone to tell you where to put your stick. I'd move the end of Volume II back much further, to the evolution of Homo Sapiens, or even the development of Fire Control. 7: That'd be a cool addition. However, given Africa underwent some severe climate changes over the timeline of Volume I and it went unreflected, I'm not sure we can expect that. 8: Wearing furs would definitely fit in our theoretical tech tree. Whether draped furs with minimal modifications count as clothing is a bit more in question, although the idea of an "Antler Borer" to go along with our Basalt Chopper just feels right, so maybe some rudimentary stitching will make it in as well. 9: Art could very well be something developed *on* the tech tree, in whatever form that takes. 10: I think you're gonna need to explain why a player would want to worsen their relationship with a clanmember... 11: Makes sense, but it also would've made sense in Volume I. It's not like animals can't use herbalism after all - ever seen a dog eat grass? Depending on what makes it in, Volume II might already be survival-enough to not need to account for random diseases as well. 12: The last Glacial Period would've been at the very tail-end of Homo Erectus' time. I suspect we won't spend much time there. 13: Tactics are almost certainly in, with most of Homo Erectus' advancements being social or incremental in nature.

It's not the kind of easy game most people would say should be your first, but it's definitely playable and could even be a lot of fun if you know how to cope. I think what really matters here is how willing you are to possibly lose due to your noobishness - if you're the kind of person who plays Dwarf Fortress or those similar games where losing is an inevitability and you're used to having fun learning and fighting a glorious loss, then you should 1000% play this start. If, however, you're here to see the victory screen, nobody is going to blame you if you restart and try for an easier, more noob friendly initialization. Personally I'd play this start, because it's not really too bad and it'd be a lot of fun to play a mostly naval game, which is basically required by this start. But you should make the decision to play or not play the map based on your own feelings about what you want to get out of the game on this playthrough. It's definitely more difficult than average even if it's also definitely not unplayable, but there's a lot of fun in going to the Dragon's Cave at level 1 to raid his riches and the hope of swaggering out.

Perhaps a hard split when a certain milestone is met, where auto-evo will force-evolve a pre-built cell which is then released to evolve more naturally to fill the niche? Taking a look at Bibites, it seems to be really difficult to actually get something to evolve, say, predation naturally. Milestones might look along the lines of "First auto-evo cycle with a cell in a patch with 100% lux will force-evolve Basic Phytoplankton", or "First auto-evo cycle with a patch with a total population of over 1000 will force-evolve Basic Predator"; "First auto-evo cycle with a cell in a patch of Cave type will force-evolve ferrovore". Whatever route the player is going will likely already have a filled niche with evolved cells which will outcompete the basic cell, but an unfilled niche won't. In this way, you should wind up with some reasonably diverse worlds without really *forcing* any particular clade to become dominant and thus keeping an element of natural progression to it.

I'll never get over the fact that you need a "conservative flair" to post in their subs. Like, how big a pansy are you that just banning people who disagree with you isn't enough, you need to pre-screen them, and you can't even do that well because you're convinced that liberals react to conservatism the way a vampire does to a fabreez bottle filled with holy water.

It's a quote from Ubisoft saying they're cutting out the best part of the franchise because some twats who thought Game of Thrones was gritty and realistic wanted it out. But there's other people saying it's fake, so I dunno

Only a very vocal minority. Most people are clever enough to realize that losing the part of the story that adds actual weight to what's happening, that ties the whole franchise together, that provides context and foreshadowing, and that does all that in relatively swift segments of maybe 15 minutes at most... Is dumb. Cutting the modern part of the story out is ***dumb***.

The likelihood of being assaulted isn't that different, it's the likelihood of reporting the rape that's different. That's the point, the perception is simply wrong and Miu is no less likely to rape Kiibo than Hifumi is whoever you choose to mention.

Nah, it's because MLK is a forgiving man and he volunteered to go to Hell and bring back people who seek redemption and mean it. *That* would piss the white supremacists off worse.

It's not that good, honestly. It's a decent anti-fascist tract but it's just not a good book, with a lot of loose plot threads that go nowhere, scenes that mean very little and unprompted plot devices that don't make a lot of sense.

Commented by /u/Karnewarrior in /r/HumansBeingBros on September 12, 2022 23:37:46

Or they're old racist tracts presented with no outside context that are still valid propaganda pieces. Funnily enough those books rarely get banned.

Right? People make it out like Hifumi is one bad fap away from pouncing on the nearest vulnerable wamen yet he is *consistently* the most respectful dude towards female characters in the whole of THH. Even his interactions with >!Alter Ego, while a bit weird and creepy, don't give the impression of sexual assault so much as just Hifumi being really bad at flirting and AE not being able to tell he is!<.

Well, because we don't know, because Hermione never asked and nobody else seemed to care. Frankly as far as a pro-elf organization goes, SPEW was shit from the beginning. Hermione didn't seem interested in what the elves themselves had to say to any extent - even if the Elves hadn't been written as a monolithic servile entity, Hermione probably would've failed because she didn't have the support of any elf besides Dobby. She simply assumed she knew better than they did about what they wanted.

Possibly part of it, but they were doing this kinda thing before /pol/ broke containment. The KS Devs have always been really wary about fanstuff for their game in general, it's a wonder we got so much as Katawa Crash. They're kinda dinguses for it, honestly. It's disrespectful towards the game they created, and the community around it.

Actually, Ancestors is incredibly fair. Everything is predictable once you know the underlying mechanics and if you pay attention. The game is built to represent the experience of being an ancient ape learning about the world for the first time, so it can be a bit obtuse, but once you've learned the key mechanics things begin to fall together extremely quickly. Indeed, by the late game there's really no more challenge beyond actually finding that last crocodile for the evolution points.

That's... That's most games though. Most games spawn enemies who will attack you. And the tigers in this game aren't random, they have dens and patrol areas, if they see you they'll chase you, but as long as you remember to fuck off to the trees they can't even touch you.

Quit walking on the ground until you've learned how to dodge, my dude. You're an ape. Act like it. You can swing from any leafy region of space by (IIRC) holding down the jump button - use this to move from branch to branch. Sabertooths can't get up trees, and the Eagle can't go below the canopy, so if you spend most of your time on the low branches you're set. You should also remember to use your senses. Both hearing and smell will detect a sabertooth who's trying to hide from you. Games have enemies, this is ours. Stalker Cat is there to teach you lessons. Learn them. Learn to hate the cat. It'll make it more satisfying when you figure out how to kill it.

Yeah but it's not stupidity, it's emotion. Hifumi was repeatedly shown throughout the game to be extremely respectful of everyone, women included. Then, in the chapter where he's at his most vulnerable, he's told that the guy he's been fighting with, an asshole who's already being "unreasonably controlling" (in Hifumi's opinion) of one girl(male), sexually assaulted one of his classmates. By a liar who's so skilled at selling it that she can be introduced at a casino as the "Queen of Liars" and still clean the place out. I'd say that's not slander any more than saying someone got beat up by Sakura would be. It's literally part of Celeste's talent. Celeste could've sold the lie to anyone else, but Hifumi was particularly vulnerable and thus the easiest to convince the plan was worth it. Kyouko is cold-headed and would've wanted to investigate and bring Taka to justice inside the school, Sakura might've snapped and killed him with the right provocation but would've almost certainly admitted guilt soon after to protect everyone else. Hifumi was already close to snapping and lashing out, and she struck at a sensitive spot that was already sore and then immediately presented a plan of doing it which, according to the plan Hifumi was given, would've even saved one of his classmates - rather than everyone else dying he was expecting to walk out of there with Celeste. The man was an artist for a living. It shouldn't be seen as a slight on his character for him to be fooled in his most vulnerable situation by the Ultimate Liar with exactly the right lie to punch him in the gut.

This. Being a teacher is way rougher than it needs to be, and sometimes people in hyperstressful situations like that will lash out. Imagine being underpaid by half, overworked by triple, and then told to wrangle and largely raise not 30, not 60, but 120+ children. We put a lot on our teachers. If they can't hack it they can't, and making fun of the kids isn't acceptable, but treating it like a failure of the teacher in this environment is downplaying the sheer volume of shit rolling down that part of the hill. A volume that most people don't notice, because a lot of teachers will never let you see all the work they do.

I always assume that rest healing is due to healers in the party using long-form casts that would be irrelevant in a combat situation but are more plausible if you have a couple hours uninterrupted. I mean, it doesn't work if there aren't any healers in the party, but that party comp is trash anyway. :P
