    Is it gross to anyone else when a name such as Becky starts getting used as an insult?

    This sounds like something a Becky would say

    One of those things that's ok when women of color do it and quickly becomes just misogynistic when white dudes try to be performatively woke

    The plot of my porn game was about Order vs Chaos

    Imagining the recent PA arc about plant-based D&D but with a porn game and the extremely detailed lore of the Vulvamancers and Dicktusk Orcs

    I mean...

    Yeah pretty much.

    Genital magic was definitely a thing.

    When I was a young lad I really wanted to write a fantasy novel about Order vs Chaos, with the typical theme of balance as necessity, except the climactic battle would take place under a giant cosmic scale weighing the dominion of each force

    The protagonist would win against the overpowering antagonist, a representative of Chaos, by making sure he is about to lose while the villain is underneath the Chaos side of the scale, so that the villain's own impending victory causes an imbalance that crushes him

    I thought this was, perhaps, the greatest idea ever developed, and obviously never wrote the novel

    You mean obviously because if you had, we'd all recognize you from the tabloids, right

    TMZ is all over this.

    The wizard's name was Raistlin

    No Dragonlance did it wrong as you'd know if you read the Legend of Huma which sets the crucial flawed metaphysical tone for the series by having Huma spare Takhisis because of a purported need for balancing evil vs good which is absurd since obviously evil is the result of imbalance between morally neutral forces and not itself a morally neutral force

    Really though why has no one done a sick minor key rock or metal cover of Edmund Fitzgerald
    Does any one know where the love of God goes
    When the waves turn the minutes to hours?
    The searches all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay
    If they'd put fifteen more miles behind her
    They might have split up or they might have capsized
    They may have broke deep and took water
    And all that remains is the faces and the names
    Of the wives and the sons and the daughters

    I think the only people I've ever seen with that name are in US movies and TV shows. Calling someone a 'Chad' over here might result in a confused look, then possibly someone asking you if you mean the country.

    Has anyone considered moving all the heat from the warm places to the cold places and evening it out?

    I say we give Elon Musk a trillion dollars to get started on this right away.

    The average air temperature at earth’s surface is 14°C / 57°F. This is ok but maybe we can do slightly better. Like, omit antarctica from the mixing and get it up a little higher.

    I forgot my card that lets me getting into work and stuff this morning after teleworking and like a butt load of appointments. So I had to go home. But thanks to traffic and the fact we have an early release anyway I was told to just telework. So I have changed from full work clothing to pajamas and watching folks play KH3 while teleworking.

    Two weekends ago I was in Durham for a birthday/MTG prerelease

    Oh dang. Which store? I didn't do this prerelease but if you're up here again hmu

    "The Escape Goat" I was at uh, Atomic Empire I think it was? My buddy has been a fixture there for about 5 years now, he's a judge etc so when I come over to play in prereleases that's where we go

    @Arch hah, that's the one I normally go to. Have probably talked to your bud a few times.

    I was once driving some friends to get lunch, and we couldn't find the burrito place. As we were on a college campus, I pulled over and asked a guy in a polo shirt "Excuse, me, bro?" and asked him for directions and, well, I didn't intend for 'bro' to come out sounding like a slur, but

    My rakdos burn deck is insane when it goes well.

    I was going against a deck that had me on the ropes but it was an Orzhov Control I think? nothing i could put down appeared to stick... but i kept the pressure on, stabilized and just powered through solely by doing small amounts of cheap damage.

    My boyfriend has very few chest hairs but the ones he does have are long so I have named them

    They are: Chad, Brad, Thad, Jason, Topher, Chester, Jace, and Dozer

    He thinks chester is a pun and the rest are chosen randomly, which is so much more charming than if he knew what I was doing.

    I dunno. It kind of conjures up a tanned, stupid, intimidating but not overly muscled bully in a high school drama. Someone with boundless self-confidence and a future in dealing roofies.

    I dunno if there's a precise equivalent over here. For a start, they probably aren't tanned. And for another most stereotypes would have to have a strong class element.

    If someone is called Edmund they're going to a private school and possibly doing so in the 19th century.
