    Making narrative sense of "levels" in RPGs

    I think it would be healthy if people lived their dreary lives as usual but had access to a simulation for 2 hours every day. They could continue to try and mostly fail to improve their hopeless situation in the real world, but have a dream world to fall back to. Nothing stops the simulation...

    Is Transexuality a Neurosis?

    If you're going to reject masculine domination of culture then you have to reject all religion, including hinduism. Women had no input into writing what was included in the sacred texts. Kali - a violent goddess, was certainly conceived by a male storyteller, though it is fitting that a male...

    Is Transexuality a Neurosis?

    @Cognisant That's the point - humans are strongly typed. Only true and false work, but furries want "any text" to work. That's just overturning the norms and all kinds of despicable. We know that Javascript is an untyped(weakly typed) abomination for web development that lets you do shit like...

    Is Transexuality a Neurosis?

    The difference is fundamental, they're two different types of objects. If we try to describe this using types from programming. Traditionally, people's gender can be described with two boolean values, gender and orientation. Your gender being 1 makes you female, let's say. Your orientation...

    Making narrative sense of "levels" in RPGs

    Let's say meta-ironically that I'm really keen on ruling the galaxy, seriously, I'd love to be the god-emperor of mankind. I think I have the necessary knowledge and vision. Where else am I going to be able to become the god-emperor of mankind if not in a simulation? Is my dream too grandiose...

    Is Transexuality a Neurosis?

    @Cognisant You have a histerical tendency to blow things out of proportion. Escpecially when it comes to the things on the progressive and SJW end. You're criticizing the least visible, least pretentious LGBT+ group and use "Furries" as comparison. Most trans people who aren't drag queen do...

    Making narrative sense of "levels" in RPGs

    90% of people will never be able to own a farm where they could live a simple idyllic life close to nature surrounded by a group of friends. Even if that's their dream life the best that they're going to be able to afford is a very life-like simulation of a farm in a game. For many people...

    Making narrative sense of "levels" in RPGs

    I get it that life can be fun to level up and offers a lot of enjoyment, but games can also offer enjoyment and experiences and don't have to be single player. One can do all these things with other players or friends and build a set of shared memories. I'm a big fan of board games and they help...

    Is Transexuality a Neurosis?

    My criterion for qualifying a person as homophobic or transphobic is very simple. If you don't feel comfortable; around gay or trans people and if you don't feel comfortable in a society where there is trans marriage and trans adoption, where trans people are making out in front of you, when you...

    What do you think is the future of warfare?

    We should start questioning the MAD doctrine in a literal sense. I think it's a political scheme and the population doesn't understand what it entails. This is especially relevant in the futuristic context where the illusion of MAD will be questioned and debunked. I can't be bothered to link...

    Obesity: My toxic best friend

    @Puffy Environment is the main factor, there are other factors like mental health et al. Mental health is also affected by the environment, internal state and many other factors. So the environment has strong direct influence AND indirect effect through environment-dependent factors. That's...

    Obesity: My toxic best friend

    There's no "inactivity epidemic" going on in the developed world. Modern man hasn't suddenly changed their habits to cause obesity. It's way simpler than that. People used to work in the fields, do grueling physical jobs that made them fit and they prepared their own cheap plant based food that...

    Your Adult Developmental History

    I don't exactly get the "not fully developed" idea. Some of the things I do in my life right now are things that I knew I should be doing when I was 7 years old, but had not had the power or control to execute. Was I a particularly driven kid who knew what I wanted? Don't think so. It's true...

    What do you think is the future of warfare?

    1. Major conventional "world" wars are very unlikely. Wars used to be unpredictable, with almost no information about the forces and resources available to both sides. Now wars are turning into perfect information games more resembling chess, except not symmetric. It will always be the case that...

    Ask me if you need help switching to Linux or why Linux beats Windows

    I know the difference between DE's and various distros. MX Linux (a linux distro) has good DE (desktop environment) out of the box - Xfce that is going to be quite familiar to windows users. Because MX Linux comes with a graphical configuration tool (MX Tools), moving the taskbar to the bottom...
