    Of couse we're different. We're good humans, and they're bad humans.

    On magic

    There was an air of great frustration. Stone, bone, flint. The tools of choice. They were prized before, being used to make tools. Stone and flint knives could cut out animal hide, letting them be cured and transformed into clothing. Bone needles, for sewing and making fabric. Pottery had been...

    On magic

    There is the knocking of stone. Battle. War and destruction has always occured. Always in nature, beast and plant has fought one another. Same, for man. This was an argument for a good gathering place. The food was abundant in this area, but it was only enough for one. And there were two here...

    Most controversial or unpopular political/economic/social opinions?

    Of course not. They'll say things like 'oh, that doesn't count', or 'They didn't do it according to marxist principles, so they weren't real communists', or they would say things like 'the greater good'. But yeah, it gets tiring. Because at some point, you look at both sides, and realize that...

    Most controversial or unpopular political/economic/social opinions?

    *nods* I see no reason why I should not be produ of my nation. After all, we have zero school shootings. zero unprovoked invasions of relatively innocent countries, and I'm quite sure we haven't carried any unethical experimentation of our own citizenry.

    Most controversial or unpopular political/economic/social opinions?

    Yeah. Nationalism is most definitely not linked to racism, fascism, or otherwise. To do so is to frankly miss the point. Nationalism is a natural self defense, letting your monkeysphere expand to a massive rate and letting you avoid 'divide and conquer' tactics done by the British and...

    Grigar was a gregarious fellow. Friendly and outgoing. He had friends, and his rescue of them, allayed any suspicion of his new powers. Grigar was not the only one to discover his powers. But there were several caveats for a magical tradition to appear within a civilisation. First, was enough...

    The use of fictional creatures and species as metaphor for 'minorities'

    But is it always a metaphor? If I write a story of people exploring a space hulk of monsters, are the monsters a metaphor for natives, the hulk as land, and the people exploring as white men from the British empire?

    Go to the fanfiction 'Game Theory' of Nanoha, if you want to have an overview.

    A/n: This is rather irregular, but it must be said. Half the things I say here is bullshit. I am no programmer, no metallurgist, and no historian. Please, suspend your disbelief. There are many things that occur in the multiverse. Not, of course, ranging from every choice ever made like some...

    What is the earliest times that you could produce an arc lamp?

    I've just been on reddit. You get carbon rods from graphite. You get wires from copper (I'm sure you can make them). Now the question is this. Can you make a battery?

    What is the earliest times that you could produce an arc lamp?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arc_lamp Surprisingly simple. Two carbon electrodes, and one battery. The question is this. When is the earliest time it could have been invented, or created? I'm not talking about historical plausibility. I'm talking about technology to purify the carbon and set...

    Earth Is Contacted By an Alien Empire (Thought Experiment)

    Hey, @Lord Inquisitor Adornable , what's their ruling system like? What's their conception of mercy and human rights? What about exploitative relationships?

    Diplomatic leaks, the British ambassador's comments on Donald are made public

    How truly humiliating. I see much laughter at Britain's expense.

    Modern What would it take for Japan to not get into conflict with America in WW2?

    How about merging them, such that they trade with USA and invade European colonies?

    Modern What would it take for Japan to not get into conflict with America in WW2?

    So get better PR, and also bribe the US? Seems pretty easy.

    Modern What would it take for Japan to not get into conflict with America in WW2?

    So Japan was doomed the moment it hit America. So there's only one thing. Avoid it. Can it just hit British and Duch colonies, taking them from over? Is there any diplomatic maneuvering they can do to avoid American blockade and hostility? What about making it so that America doesn't fight...

    UK Politics The Brexit thread (or All -not- quiet on the western front)

    Question. How bad would it be for Britain to pull out and finally go on its own? Go straight to North Korea level? Mass starvations and rioting in the streets? Or would it simply be an economic downturn?
