    Being a devoted foot soldier in Mount and Blade is dangerous, though - I have 10 archers and 31 (including myself) foot soldiers, so I set my archers up on a hill and then set up halfway down the slope, and let the enemy come to me. Then, as they reach the bottom of our slope, we charge, but I like to lead from the front, inspire confidence in my men, you know?

    But sometimes a perfectly timed spear thrust can knock out half of my health and suddenly I have to cower on the edges of the battle because holy Jesus that was close.

    life's a game that you're bound to lose / like using a hammer to pound in screws
    fuck up once and you break your thumb / if you're happy at all then you're god damn dumb

    comparing 30 year olds today to those entering the workforce during/after the great depression is a bit nonsensical

    all we would need to compare them is another global war and the meteoric rise of a new global imperialist superpower

    good thing I wasn't comparing 30 year olds today to those entering the workforce during after the great depression then

    i mean is that not literally the question you asked?

    @chanus no I was attempting to understand the relative impact. So comparing those entering the workforce after the great depression to those immediately before/after would give some insight into the loss of earnings on 30 year olds today when compared with their peers ~5 years older/younger. It seems a reasonable approach to me.

    in fact, I think PAX East 2015 was a kind of turning point year for PAX just in general.

    How so

    South opened that year. It was the last year for even remotely reasonable hotel prices. Last good swag year. Last year of Khoo (well 2016 really but he was months from retirement at that point). Last year with a scheduled signing event for Mike & Jerry. First year of AFK room.

    The feel of things was just different in subsequent years. Thinner, more frantic, meaner, less game oriented!

    weird

    They really didn't want to be, and then we just sort of made them, and then they really didn't want to be so we held a few votes and they lost because for some reason the entire country got to weigh in, and now that they know we kinda want them to stay they've calmed down a bit and decided maybe we're not so bad.

    I've started playing World of Warships somewhat frequently again.

    I have a new Italian tier 5 battleship, the Giulio Cesare that served in both world wars.

    Its gimmick is HE ammo, which BBs normally don't use -- they typicall want to put large holes in cruisers using armor-piercing ammo instead by aiming for the citadel and doing Tons Of Damage.

    HE ammo does waaay less damage, but has like 4-7% chance to cause a fire that does ticking percentage damage.

    The Giulio Cesare has 35% chance to set a fire with its main armament HE ammo.

    I set fifteen fires in my first game.

    I queued my old World of Tanks account, but I'm like tier ix and repairs are punishing and spotting mechanics have always been v bad

    Do we have any war thunder players here?

    you might need to go more granular to get a really useful comparison, like specifically look at earnings potential that was forecasted before 1937 or something

    world war II and the rise of America as a global superpower (and the addition of women to the workforce and major technological advances we can't even compare to today, such as the washing machine) are far greater factors in how things turned out for that generation

    so really i don't know that the comparison is really anything other than an interesting data point as to what might have been maybe?

    reading an article about miranda rights vs canadian interrogation/arrest procedures and this is the only comment
    It isn't just Miranda rights we don't have - WE DON'T HAVE ANY RIGHTS. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms - along with the Constitution Act and other items - was rejected when we said NO to the Charlottetown Accord. Most laws rejected in this manner are simply passed in house, as these were. So, technically, it IS law. But go back further - to December of 1931 - the Statute of Westminster - which REQUIRES the INDEPENDENT SOVEREIGN PROVINCES to come together and form a CONFEDERATION, which has not been done. Furthermore, it also requires the Government of Canada to seek the approval of the people. The first and only attempt at this failed with the rejection of the Charlottetown Accord. So the approval to be a "nation" was rejected. Therefore, as Canada does not exist legally (except as a corporation), the Constitution Act and the Charter of Rights and Freedoms don't either. We have no rights.

    amazing
