    I am concerned that we need to implement quarantine procedures at work. I entered one set of toilets only to encounter a man being very unwell, the stench and sounds caused me recoil. I went to another set and there was a miasma at the door foreboding further inquiry. I had to cross the frozen quadrangle to find some unsullied.

    Frankly, you do not want to be at work if something like norovirus is happening.

    All this talk about police always being corrupt kind of irks me at times considering my Dad is a retired Police Chief. I wish there weren't so many bad apples in policing because it's really put such a bad mark on the entirety of the profession.

    Look most of us with fathers in the law enforcement field have to accept at some point those fathers either participated in or looked the other way during at least one major injustice probably involving a minority. It's just a fact of life.



    When we start demonizing the very concept of being a police officer we deserve to have a police force composed entirely of arseholes.

    That doesn't follow at all. Ingratitude isn't a crime.

    Who said anything about gratitude? I'm just saying once it becomes universally accepted that police officers are all corrupt, don't be surprised when only corrupt people try to become officers.

    I don't think it's acceptance or public expectations that make certain professions susceptible to corruption. It's things like power, lack of oversight, an institutionalised need for dishonesty.

    The same things apply to politicians.

    Of course that's true.

    I just think that saying "oh, your dad was a cop? How do you feel about all those black guys he beat up?", is the same as saying "oh, your dad was a soldier? How do you feel about all those war crimes he committed?". It's taking the actions of a bad few to create a negative stereotype of the whole profession, and that has consequences.

    I've personally considered joining the police a fair few times, one day I still might. I don't consider myself to be a racist, a sexist or any other kind of "ist" and as a person who is not any of those things it kind of gives me pause to think "if I joined up, are people looking at me and wondering how many black guys I've assaulted today?". There are good people in the service, there are good people who want to join the service. The service itself puts a massive emphasis on community and having a force that represents minorities. I don't think we do them any favours by being all "they're all corrupt racist thugs everyone of them".

    okay there are actually plenty of cool prisons

    This was closed as a prison in 2009

    I am so envious of people who can manage to keep their campaigns together enough to finish them.

    I have done so exactly once in twelve years of roleplaying.

    Motherfuckers at The Strand Gaming have a 47 session Burning Wheel campaign, all available as a podcast.

    My current D&D group has stayed together for almost two months!

    It's a miracle!

    okay this is also a cool prison. Slightly smaller scale. It fits 16 prisoners.

    That's not a prison, it's an English B&B!

    a proper B&B is just a normal house!

    Which is what that is! :P
