  1. Dear god I am SO sorry for the delay so far, first we had the tie, and now that the decision's been all but locked in (1-6-3) I'm being hit with some writer's block (these unfeeling keys are staring at me, mocking me.) In the meantime I hope to god I can get through it better and figure out the next part after I get done with some rl stuff I need to do.
  2. Well not to put an incredibly simple answer after a bunch of multi paragraph ones, but I for one am pro gun for a number of reasons that admittedly might sound cliché 1: The Constitution put it in for a reason, The founding fathers are generally seen as some of the smartest political figures... maybe not in history but in a long time. So OBVIOUSLY they had a good reason to allow firearms in the home. 2: if Firearms are COMPLETELY banned, only those outside the law will have them. There are illegal ways that people will get guns, and people will use those guns without opposition from law abiding citizens. Just look at Prohibition in the 20's, all it did was give major power and money to crime rings. NOW imagine that, but instead of the illegal thing being beverages, it was 3: Armed civilians allow people to stop crimes far quicker than policemen. with an average across 100 shootings (analyzed by Dani Barker) being... 14.29 when stopped by cops to 2.33 when stopped by civilians. 6.22 TIMES more deaths in the former compared to the latter, because civilians can respond Quickly, and be there almost instantly with weapons drawn. Take in that little number and look back at #2. In summary though, my real reason is that it doesn't rub me the right way that something that was put RIGHT IN THE CONSTITUTION is a target of such controversy. I think that though certainly we should be making sure that the wrong people aren't getting them, letting people protect themselves is crucial.
  3. Heh, I remember that the bottle thing was kind of my way to vent my omo interests for a while because I can't really do anything else. The issue is that it kinda became normal to me eventually, at least to do it outside. Glad to know you've found something new.
  4. Well probably because they're paranoid about... our government has been paranoid about any 'terrorist' act ever since 9/11 (Yes I am saying that 16-17 years later it still affects thinking) and with ISIS in the middle east they think that we need to be prepared for war. Granted I don't think it's right, or right to take it from education but they at least have a reason.

    Pardon my blunt rudeness, but dafuq's a plumbus?
  6. I was recently hoping to make a game using RPGmaker, based on a specific series and loosely based on another game I had several grievances with (it had a more zelda-ish combat system that felt like a mashfest and didn't support the story I wanted to tell). The issue is I realized that without completely plagiarizing their portraits and sprites for important characters that I had absolutely no way to get art for it. I understand that literally no one would do anything without compensation, but if someone could help me working on it a bit I would majorly appreciate it...
  7. yeah that's about my opinion on it. I never really understood how things worked regarding alternate gender... And not to get hated on but I remember an image I saw that describes a very Mercenary and almost rude way of putting the whole 'bathroom law' controversy, but also one that I think makes sense. That's how we define gender in the western world, and to an extent the more actually relevant part of why things like Bathroom laws are up to debate, because people think it's weird for penises to go in the vagina bathroom (although people don't seem to hate the other way around NEARLY as much). It's again VERY completely and totally NOT PC and possibly bordering on transphobic, but it's true to how our minds think of it, and the simplest way to nip the controversy in the bud. GENDER is a social construct to some extent because of the fact that what it means to 'act as your gender'. If our society tended to 'males' wearing dresses and 'females' playing football, no one would bat an eye nearly as much. SEX is the concrete measure that our social assumption of gender is built around, and the real tangible dichotomy that bases it. If there were 5 different sexes we'd probably have 5 genders based around each set of parts. I REALLY hope I don't start some kind of mud slinging fest from this.
  8. I was hoping to put an image attached but it didn't work, let's try another one
  9. Yet with time I have become unsure what to think of it, it is a series with ups and down that confounds me to a rating.

    My guess? Look at the painting in the background. Something or SOMEONE is messing with her
  11. There's one thing wrong with this picture
  12. The major issues I see in practice are (from an American Perspective) 1: It can allow demagogues (Definition: a political leader who seeks support by appealing to popular desires and prejudices rather than by using rational argument.) to get into office. I mean, look at our new president, Donald Trump. No political experience, Racist. But he had the charisma and TV knowhow to get the vote by treating it like reality TV. 2: There is a bit of the Ogliarchy thing in that only those with the funds to be able to campaign have any hope of getting in. 3: It doesn't count Non-Voters, with there being no real way to handle that right, and no one can be accountable for it (Voters saying that it's the non-voter's fault for not voting, whilst non voters saying that it's the voter's fault for voting them in.) Despite this, I think that democracy works... MOST of the time, and is generally better for the individual than pretty much anything else. Monarchies and Ogliarchies don't work because all the power is in the upper class, which screws the people. Communism has been twisted and turned into a dictatorship system over time. And I don't know what other major forms there are
  13. Mind if I join back in?
  14. 1: Go without 1 2: Stay longer: 3 3: Leave and try to get Flutts to follow: 3 1 for rarity 3 for Weather Brigade Apologies for being so long between IRL and just forgetting a bit about this place (Bad Curious, Bad!) I've not gotten a chance to. I'll try to write some tonight when I get a chance... Anyone have any questions, suggestions, etc.?
  15. um I think that happened, but that period was also when I presented my character idea Elana Swiftwind
