@platypus I mean, could UPenn or Penn State? It's all equally distant imo! What is the A even OH SHIT that's "PA U(niversity)" I get it now, wtf

@genesisoflegend it's so much better here, but that's not saying much given hellbirdsite.

@emacsen I am super feeling the lack of Ashkenazi culinary culture here, too.

I would like to find more deafies on the Fediverse. Anybody know of any besides me?

I love Sugru. It remains a marvellous material for modding and repairing the world around you.

Everyone who is saying "Tell me your marketing team has no gays without telling me it has no gays" about the Spanish transit mascot Bussi is wrong. I prefer to think it had two snarky gays and one goaded the other into suggesting that name because none of the straights would get it.

I think I may have stumbled into the smallest reasonable Nomic ruleset

1. All decisions by majority vote.
2. The first player to propose victory wins if the vote passes.
3. Decisions can change the rules.

You can yank rule 2 and get a smaller set, but you need players who already know what a Nomic is _for_ to play without it. Rule 2 is an orientation tool for the players.
