    Official Goblins (comic) Thread

    I'm pleasantly surprised about the turn this took. Also, I like this development because it feels like something that would happen in an actual roleplaying game

    Former President Trump Thread

    I mean, it's a known behaviour of cults that when their leader's prediction's*, core tenets, whatever, are proven wrong, believers double down on their beliefs (because admitting they were wrong all along is much harder) (Particularly noticeable in doomsday cults, when the actual day comes and...

    Coronavirus Thread

    Sooo... In case this is useful to you guys: I was sure I had already gone throug COVID, but they did a really large antibody study here in Spain and only about 15% of people that presented 4-5 symptoms of COVID in the last couple of months have actually had it. (Compared to 5% of the total...

    Get rid of welfare and just give every adult $870/mo

    (I do agree with your first line. But the wealth of people who start up companies, own factories or whatever is usually justified through risk, through innovation or sort of important decision-making. I don't really agree with that, but with landlords these apply even less.)

    Coronavirus Thread

    Yes, but it may be true that under capitalism, the economic depression that's coming might provoke deaths comparable to COVID, especially depending on the measures that are taken (both regarding COVID and the depression itself).

    Get rid of welfare and just give every adult $870/mo

    I mean, it's not for nothing that most arguments in favor of landlords go the way of saying they already worked hard to be able to purchase their properties, rather than saying they are working hard right now. Even if there is some work involved (which can be offloaded to someone else anyway)...

    [Movies] MCU: Phase 3 And Beyond

    Eh, if this is like Captain Marvel was supposedly necessary to understand Endgame, well... In the end it DEFINITELY wasn't.

    [Movies] Avengers: Endgame Spoilers Thread

    And the nod to the elevator fight scene in Winter Soldier! These nods were a lot of fun (and sweet, in an "end of an era" movie like this one)

    [Movies] Avengers: Endgame Spoilers Thread

    So, first, a few lines for the possible preview problem. Is this enough? Okay, let's go. I don't have much to say. I just loved it. There were a couple shaky spots, and I think the "epilogues" will feel long on a second viewing. But oh God, I cried, I was on the edge of my seat, I wanted to...

    [Webcomic] Webcomic Appreciation Jamboree

    I'm loving it! And I love that it's updating more or less consistently now, and I'm actually glad for the text pages mixed with the comic right now, because the story has become complex in a way that would make the pace glacial if it was all comic. I'd go nuts (or lose interest).

    Get rid of welfare and just give every adult $870/mo

    But that's not how taxes work. I may be in favor of increased tax rates in my country, but that doesn't mean I'm a hypocryte if I pay just what society, through government, has supposedly agreed is the fair amount for me to pay (paying less thant what I'm supposed to pay WOULD make me a hypocryte).

    Official Goblins (comic) Thread

    Not very well done, I have to say. When trying to determine what it was, I even went back to that page where they identify many of the items (one would have thought that all of them, but no), and the only cloak there was the pain cloak. Also, this cloak has a similar color to that of THACO's...

    I thought so too, but no... The pain cloak is wrapped around the axe of Prissan

    Look, LOOK. Be dense, or buy overpriced avocados. But you can't have everything. Fucking millenials.
