Science is the same as the government at this point.

Lobbyists and sponsors of the research can get the results they want without much interest in the facts or how its affects will progress. Profit drives everything. Knowledge is somewhere on the priority list...not sure where.

He looks for his goddess to smile upon him.

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Not sure how accurate his videos are, but he doesn't lack for opinions:



I've watched a few of them here and there and they are at least food for thought about ancient weapons and tactics. More videos on his channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/lindybeige/videos

Quote
Hemingway makes your writing bold and clear.

Hemingway highlights long, complex sentences and common errors; if you see a yellow highlight, shorten the sentence or split it. If you see a red highlight, your sentence is so dense and complicated that your readers will get lost trying to follow its meandering, splitting logic — try editing this sentence to remove the red.

Adverbs are helpfully shown in blue. Get rid of them and pick verbs with force instead.

You can utilize a shorter word in place of a purple one. Mouse over it for hints.

Phrases in green have been marked to show passive voice.

Paste in something you're working on and edit away. Or, click the Write button to compose something new.
