    [–] Dragon Dreams I Hambone3110 2 points ago in sciencefiction

    I got all excited for a second there. "Dragon Dreams" is also the name of Deathworlders chapter 21.

    This is gorgeous!

    "≤" means "less than or equal to."

    Less than or equal to 24 includes 24.

    Furfeg did, yes. The others are mostly just confused and scared out of their minds.

    And considerably less of a misogynist pig.

    Though for the record, it was his total abject uselessness with Channa and his imediate faux pas on meeting her that made me instantly warm to Simeon.

    The V'straki are canon, but thoroughly and firmly extinct in the canon timeline.

    Mormons do not drink tea, iced or otherwise. If this is supposed to be a sign that she's slipping away from being a Good Mormon then it's a nice touch, but if it's not then this is a mistake.

    Well caught!

    In fact, Amanda's troubles with her husband and her flight to Cimbrean with the boys began when she lost her temple recommend due to antidepressant abuse.

    I'm not explicitly showing that journey "on screen" as it were because I personally was raised in the Church of England, and LDS can be a little alien to me and I don't want to get it wrong. But I am telling it through hints and features such as this, yes.

    [–] We've got actual Nazis back. In Britain. Hambone3110 3 points ago in britishproblems

    Thanks, mate. Kinda needed a voice of support.

    [–] We've got actual Nazis back. In Britain. Hambone3110 1 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in britishproblems

    Well, every time something like that happens we have shitsticks like Tommy Robinson show up to talk about Islamist extremism, stir up fear and turn us against our Muslim friends and neighbours. Same "logic," different packaging.

    If a lone Islamist bomber does not render the whole religion guilty, then likewise a failed far-right terrorist doesnt mean Britain as a whole has a Nazi problem.

    A tiny number of devoted lunatics can successfully bring havoc and death, but they only win when our fear of them makes us irrational and turns us against each other.

    [–] We've got actual Nazis back. In Britain. Hambone3110 -10 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in britishproblems

    Did you miss the part where he was working in a larger group, who are still active? Why are you so desperate to downplay this, smells bad dude...

    Mate... really? You really went there?

    Get some perspective. These bastards are nobody! They're a handful of fringe lunatics who are rightly reviled by the overwhelming majority of the country.

    And the police are obviously watching them like hawks, as evidenced by the fact that one of them is now becoming intimately familiar with the charms of HM Prison Service and if we're lucky his mates will soon join him and they'll all never be seen or heard from again. They are not a problem. They are being dealt with.

    But because I'm not pulling my hair and weeping and thinking of the children, that "smells bad" to you? Seriously? Is that the kind of life you want to live? Hinting darkly at smelling a potential Nazi sympathiser every time somebody doesn't join you in panicking like Chicken fucking Little at the mere sight of some white supremacist prick with his arm in the air?

    The sky is not falling. Okay? Britain does not have some encroaching Nazi epidemic. It has what all countries have, a few pathetic losers who are totally and correctly exiled from the mainstream. And I for one refuse to join in the moral panic that seems to have entirely gripped you. I'm going to keep things in perspective. And I'm certainly not going to start throwing baseless accusations at people I don't know.

    So fuck you, and have a nice day.

    [–] We've got actual Nazis back. In Britain. Hambone3110 -14 points ago in britishproblems

    And he was caught and is now beginning a decades-long prison sentence. Where's the problem?

    [–] We've got actual Nazis back. In Britain. Hambone3110 -19 points ago in britishproblems

    Oh please. We have a handful of them out of seventy-odd million? I think we're doing alright.

    [–] Parents name child is not breaking news. Hambone3110 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in britishproblems

    they're lucky they still get to keep their titles and lands in todays britain where they're unwanted and unnecessary

    Except that they're neither of those things, as evidenced by the fact that royal babies are news.

    We get it: you find them irrelevant. But you are not everybody, so stop acting like you speak for the whole bloody country.

    To call them "unwanted" is just you being arrogant enough to assume seventy million people all think the same way you do, and to call them "unnecessary" is politically ignorant. The monarch actually does something very needed.

    Countries need heads of state and images of sovereignty, and personally I think that giving the job to a living inheritor of our past who holds no actual executive power is much better than cycling it through the assorted twerps we elect.

    Would you rather the symbol of Britain rest on the head of a dynasty committed to serving us, or (as is currently the case for the USA) on a self-aggrandising buffoon like Donald Trump?

    [–] After this and ME: Andromeda, I’ll probably never buy another BioWare game again. Hambone3110 5 points ago in AnthemTheGame

    Bioware's strengths were always in characters. They're exceptional at creating people you care about with gripping stories and layers of intricacies. Gameplay was always a bit of a second fiddle to the personalities they craft.

    That hasn't gone away. Faye, Halluk, the Matthiases, Brin and Tassyn won't ever be quite as memorable as figures like Joker, Varric, Mordin, HK-47, Morrigan, Garrus, Wrex, Solas... But I think that's only because of the lacklustre game they appeared in, not anything inherently wrong with those characters or the world they inhabit.

    Bioware still have the spark of greatness. They just need to rediscover what they're good at and focus on it.

    [–] Did I achieve the "bad" ending in ME3? Hambone3110 2 points ago in masseffect

    Sorry, there isn't. But I suspect you'll find as you play through that you remember more than you think. There's very few decisions that aren't memorable

    [–] Did I achieve the "bad" ending in ME3? Hambone3110 23 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in masseffect

    As far as I'm concerned, the Destroy ending with that high of a readiness is the best ending, not least because of Shepard's implied survival.

    But then again, I subscribe to the theory that the Control and Synthesis endings are last-ditch attempts at Indoctrinating Shepard.

    [–] How do I improve the overall comfort of my ship? Hambone3110 4 points ago in SpaceHaven

    Jukeboxes and lights next to the beds. If the beds have plenty of comfort then your crew should wake up at 0 discomfort and that'll tide them through the day.

    I guess maybe those jukeboxes have an ASMR playlist.
