s2e8, "A Matter Of Honor": uhhhhhHHHH if this were the first thing someone said to me when I boarded a new ship I would get right the fuck back into the transporter and blast my atoms right into cold empty space #tngwatch
@hache Yeah, thank you! :) I mean, the wildest part is that the PDFs that were posted are available on the DM's guild as pay-what-you-want, so nothing lost, either!
@hache Whoa, that's amazing! A fittingly belated congratulations on that 😄
@cypnk found my new username
@OldBrushNewPaper right! And then to use their platform to persuade people it's not helpful... Yeah. Shameful.
@OldBrushNewPaper They did not convince me, at least I can say that much. I was *furious*. I took it really personally at the time, like they must have thought I was an idiot and it felt like they'd spent however much time and money just to condescend to my childish, foolish idea (which I thought they hadn't actually addressed at all). Today I can recognize it more for what it was: Establishment figures protecting the status quo.
blood, capitalist dystopia
@redoak good lord. i need to start maintaining a text document of choice quotes like this because we live in full-blown hell
a long time ago, when i still thought capitalism was the least worst economic system we'd come up with, i emailed the Freakonomics people to ask what would happen if we just gave $50,000 to 500 families in one targeted neighborhood. What would the benefits be? Etc. (This was before UBI was a popular topic.)
They spent an entire 45-minute episode of their podcast talking about how, because of the Lottery Effect, everybody would immediately blow all that money on fancy cars or w/e and be wasted
