also i recently actually read the spell point system he was so dead set against and it! whips! fucking! ass!
- everyone has a pool of spell points equal to your INT. the size of this pool does not change as you gain levels.
- the point cost of spells of a particular level depends on your magic user level. when you first gain access to a new level of spells, they cost 8 points to cast, but this comes down as you gain magic user levels.
it's so fucking good!
Thinking back about how fucked up it was that my elementary school made us do a project where we found and made art of everyone's surname's family crest.
Like, fuck everyone non-white in the room I guess. Like, even those with European last names don't even get to discuss how they ended up with them.
the reason capitalists think they have "freedom" is that they use the word "freedom" all wrong.
they seem to use it solely to refer to the freedom to impose your will upon others, instead of the freedom to live at peace without imposition in the first place.
"I'm free to start my own business, where I can spend my own subservience points to hire on my fellow slaves and take advantage of the nature of the economy to exploit others!"
"I'm free to spend my time learning French because I want to and it would enrich my life."
this also explains why they all think they have a god given right to decide who gets to exist and who doesn't - that's Freedom™.
Turns out we do in fact owe things to each other, who the fuck knew that all of that individualist conditioning was misleading 😮
gambling issues, request
Are there any resources for problems with gambling or even just impulsive risk taking that ARE NOT twelve step nightmare cults?
I am not asking for a friend I am asking for a me, and while I can do a lot of self-CBT type stuff to figure out what my thought processes are and where I'm letting them run unsupervised, if there are some kind of like... habits I can build or something, it might be nice to be able to benefit from other people's experiences?
even if tesla's were actually the saving grace we wanted, it's still a shit car. like why connect a car and multiple vital systems to the internet https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/app-is-getting-500-server-error-cant-connect.247264/
crypto is threatening to centralized money control! (big tech and financial capital is investing in it)
crypto isnt inflationary! (theres a new shitcoin every 3 hours, even bitcoin got forked, and now theyre tying it to tether, which is backed by US dollars lmao)
crypto is untraceable! (it is absolutely fucking traceable lmao)
crypto is a good investment! (oh so it's both a useful liquid currency AND an investment that appreciates indefinitely when you hold on to it? interesting!)
twitter freaks are desperate for you to like crypto because as with all scams, the whole thing falls apart once new people stop investing their money
