  1. I not only remember the Cold War, I remember serving during it. On one hand, the threat of annihilation was always present. On the other hand, we more or less faced it together. On the third hand, I accept the gentle remonstrations of my friend. I am a Catholic and he is... not :wry grin: but I take it this way, we should be glad in our times and our trials. They have been worse. If it's true that faced them together in the past, perhaps we can find a way to face them together now. I don't know who all here is a believer, let alone a Christian. I don't even care. God bless and keep you
  2. I get the impression that I'm kind of persona non grata around here these days, but that simply can't stop me from my usual "trawling" wishing everyone a happy and blessed Christmas. :broad grin: I won't claim I'm not a troll, but I will insist that my wishes are heartfelt. This has been a difficult year for everyone, but it has had its moments. I find I'm quicker to anger, as if I were back in more impetuous days, but I remain quick to forgive, and that's what I want most this Christmas. I want to put aside all the anger that has accumulated over the past year. Anyhow, if someone has created
  3. Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the day. People keep saying 2021 simply cannot be worse than this year. Makes me cringe. If it gets any worse next year, this may be the last Thanksgiving before the comet hits the earth or the zombie apocalypse or whatever the hell's going to happen.
  4. Going through Stygian Lovecraft game. I restarted because I thought I could do a better job and then got busy, but I have some time coming up. I want to finish it and then look into other Lovecraftian games.
  5. About 2/3 through the current semester. This one has been cake, especially since Adult and Aging Care was pushed to next semester. However, that means 180 clinical hours next semester. I'm thinking about switching to a different per diem job after the new year. I get paid fairly well for what I do now, but I don't like keeping patient information at home, I can't take patient calls like I do when I'm in clinical hours, and I don't want to have to drive all over the Inland Empire. ...And the LA office is always swamped and asking me to take their patients. They get in a bind and then real
  6. Brrrrrr! Keep warm, brother! We'll be thinking of you in the lands between borders. As for myself, Obsidz therapy time. I had an experience at the grocery today. I won't get into the specifics, but I had to speak to the manager at the local market. I am probably one of the most friendly and urbane people you all would meet in person, but every now and again something can draw my ire. To put this in perspective, I am a giant and I can look *really* mean when I'm angry. So, at some point, the manager, we'll call him Ren, says, "You want to step away from me?" Oh. my. Lord. I actual
  7. I've played Naheulbeuk and it's fun. Turn based tactical game. It's fun on a rail, though, so don't think you'll get a lot of nuance and subtlety, though. The humor is pretty puerile, but it does have one of my favorite teenage laugh lines. Something like: "We're going to be shoved through the **** pipe and get shat on!" So stupid it does occasionally make you laugh.
  8. Another day of doing nursing stuff. Nothing particularly special, but it's all part of life, I guess.
  9. I've been playing Stygian: something of the Old Ones. ...Or Greater Old Ones. Something like that. Anyhow, a couple of observations. First, I think this must be at least the second game in a series because it assumes I have experience with the Dismal Man. I chose to play someone with investigation. Of course. That probably doesn't help me, but I can't help it. Anyhow, I played a while and ended up with schizophrenia after talking to some weirdo demon/sorcerer dude. This is a good game, but now I'm bummed and wondering if I should restart with a new character. I don't want to go mad.
  10. Yeah, I liked Pathfinder. Solid game and absolutely huge. I couldn't get into D:OS2. Something about the combat was just too clunky for me. Anyhow, I broke down and bought that Stygian Lovecraft game. I haven't tried it yet. It got mixed reviews, but I've had good luck here, so I tend to weigh that a little heavier than the overall rating on Steam. Now that the election is over, I need another entertainment source, only one a little less time consuming.
  11. Heh, the old thread is locked. Probably a decent amount of traffic in political threads. I've no doubt Biden won and I would assume he won fairly until any real evidence of widespread wrongdoing is found. It's not that I doubt the possibility for corruption, malfeasance, and fraud. It's just that those are irrelevant unless they can both be proved and also result in overturning the election. Court cases might impact things I suppose, but recounts don't overturn tens of thousands of votes. That said, I think the mail-in ballot debacle should be rectified. If it results in Biden getting t
  12. Hell of a state to miss, but aside from that, look at the RCP polling averages. It will be amusing to me if people let Trump hate encourage them to think that the polls were actually good. If people think this bodes well for Democrats... go with God, my mythic hero friend. I'm telling you, Democrats are not happy about this race. They may yet win, but shoving ~100 million bucks into a senate race that the polling average said was a tossup only to lose by double digits? Naw, the people in the coalition who dumped Trump will return after it's not a popularity contest. The fact that Republic
  13. Even if Biden wins, I was wrong. I thought the polls were improved this time. The polling industry is a shambles. On the other hand, I said a while back I thought the Republicans would keep the senate, and the polls on the senate side were absolute rubbish. As bad as the state to state and even the national vote showed the failing of the polling institutions in calling the presidential race, the senate races were simply... there are no words. Lindsey Graham? I'm telling you, Democrats should be terrified of the results of this election, whether or not Biden wins. Theoretically, the Dems
  14. Agiel, you should be rightfully frightened by this election. I'll give white suburban/white college educated voters (who are usually Republican) for minority voters. You'd best hope that everyone returns to their prospective quarters next election. If, however, the suburbanites return to the fold and minorities don't... :wicked grin: I know! I know! You're looking at the last 200 hundred years. I'm looking at the last several thousand. We can lose this one, especially if we keep the senate. The Democrats can't see a crack in the minority coalition. It is their end.
  15. Yeah, Biden is easy on your eardrums. <.< Partisan much? Anyhow, it's ten to midnight and I think it's going to be tough this week. All our hopes hinge on President Trump, a truly terrible candidate. Hoong, as ridiculous as I find him, is correct, wtihout Covid Donald Trump wins. More importantly, without his tweets, interviews, and statements, Trump also wins. If he manages to win, however, to uuuhhii's point, there will be reckoning. Even if he doesn't, Dems should be scared. I know I know. Dan is a fool. What does he mean? The demographics are not kind. The best you can
