This is a normal post I'm saying there is a need to take the nature of the crime into account.
He wasn't able to get as far as he did through his own (undoubtedly idiotic) actions alone. He was enabled by security apparatchiks who stood by and let the situation escalate for their own political ends. Just focusing on the bozos lets the real cunts off the hook.

This is a normal post I think people have noticed the cops and politicians involved judging by the immense world coverage.
It's funny because, having taken part in a riot, an insurrection, he is upset that they have cancelled his flight and feels like a victim.

This is a normal post Oh totally but the problem is
that there are always new people looking for idiots and the gullible to enact their plan.

They pop up like hydra-daisies after the rain. Cut down one cunt, five more pop up to take over. Also, attacking their messiah just makes them double down.

What works though is if you make it really obvious that acting in certain ways gets you in trouble with the law and does not get you the wonderful respect and love that idiots imagine it will. Even idiots and the gullible understand getting in trouble.

We had to do it here in the 80's when the racists, nationalists, and 'fuck you' minded were gathering strength. I remember it became popular to shun them, decry their actions, and generally make them feel like being that sort of person was something you just didn't do if you wanted to get a job, get promoted, keep your job, or eat food made by someone else that did not have saliva, faeces, or semen in it.

It worked really well for 30 years but as always, someone came along who wanted to use the idiots and the gullible to further their rich bloke agenda. This time it was a posh-boy stock market trader in conjunction with posh-boy tories and right-wing billionaire hatemag owners influenced and partly funded by Putin.

Even then they only managed it by 2%.

Problem in the US is that half the political system is courting these fuckers.

This is a normal post Fair points
but you have to admit its not much of a stretch to see the events of last 5 years as the result of being too cunt tolerant since the 80s. Just because they keep popping up doesn't mean you can't knock 'em down again (even if the movies did make being a coke-snorting arsehole sound fun and interesting).

This is a normal post Me too. Everything has side effects.
It would be massively hypocritical for anyone who has ever had, say, an untested ecstasy pill or line of coke, to stoke up fears about vaccine side effects.

Yet it seems most of the friends I have who promote these fears are precisely the ones who shoved massive drugs in their faces back in the day.

I have no doubt about the safety of the jab. At all. I'm just not too sure about its effectiveness, given our track record with corona vaccines.
My age group is scheduled for vaccination in july/august at the soonest anyway, so there'll be plenty of time to see if there's a significant drop in infection rates in the vaccinated.

Now with added working link!

I've been making a thing with some friends. We're enjoying it and our playtest victims have enjoyed it so I'd be interested to know what other people think and whether you'd potentially consider buying a copy.

graphics look good,
idea sounds interesting (for the moment) although I think people may really want to forget this whole lockdown thing after it's over
the board and the game play looks similar(ish) to Monopoly (which is a negative for me)
it appears completely luck based - how does strategy come in to this?
(, Mon 11 Jan 2021, 8:31, Reply)
This is a normal post Strategy
Largely in using the luck cards - do you play good luck on yourself or bad luck on someone else? It's not always obvious which is the best choice and it's sometimes better to play bad luck on yourself. We used a game modelling software called Machinations to get the balance right.

There are also hospital cards where you get an advantage at a cost and major scenarios where you can choose to do something but again, at cost or risk.

At heart it's a survival game so if we miss the zeitgeist it will work just as well for other disaster scenarios.

If it goes nowhere, at least we've had a lot of fun working on it and playing it.

probably too late, but you need a timer built in, so that every 5 minutes the government releases nonsensical/ meaningless guidelines that changes all the rules - that have penalties applied for not following them

This is a normal post That's not far off what Major Scenarios do
Every time someone rolls a 6 to move, the r number goes up. When it reaches a certain level a major scenario comes into play to fuck everyone up until you bring the r number back down.
