It is now time to panic. Everyone, you may spend the next two minutes running around in a circle screaming

I should have listened to Nate Silver. Speaking of whom, https://www.natesilver.net/p/joe-biden-should-drop-out

Well Biden has been an amazing president, but now he has a chance to make everything wrong. All he needs to do is not drop out.

It's fine if he wins, though. The only problem is that he's the Democrat with the worst chances of winning.

I can't play but the virtual dominion thread is a really genius idea. It's like a never ending puzzle that naturally extends with each move.

Thanks!
A couple of years ago I thought about it as a competitive game with penalty points if you ended the turn. But it's probably better non-competitive.

Your "can't play" is because of not wanting to become familiar with anything post-Menagerie?

No relation to anything on the forum, but I think one thing I would add to my top 10 annoying things list is people responding to the vibe of what you said rather than the thing itself. Like whenever you say something unusual -- unusually optimistic, cynical, optimistic, pessimistic, self-loathing, whatever -- then unless the person you're talking to is autistic (yay autism!) they're more likely than not going to think that you intended the subtext and will reply assuming so

but sometimes I just have takes that are very cynical because some aspects of the world really suck! Sometimes the cynical position is correct! That doesn't mean I like cynicism for the sake of it, it just means I happened to reach a cynical position on a particular topic!

you actually just gotta go through great lenghts to signal that you don't intend the subtext in those cases. Stating this explicitly is not enough because sometimes people communicate a subtext while claiming that what they're saying is not about the subtext, and people accurate assess that it's about the subtext anyway

The thing that makes this such an issue is that the instinct to focus on the subtext is usually correct. So in some sense you can't fault people for doing, but by god is it annoying. But yeah you either need to signal really hard that you're not in fact trying to make a vibe statement, or find someone autistic to talk to.

People on this forum are actually really good about not doing this; people in other contexts but less so

I'm sorry to hear that you're annoyed in a generic way that has no relation to the rest of your post, which I ignored.
