    Ha! Woops, English language can be a bit vague sometimes about the subject and predicates :D

    I'm not here to start any kind of beef or a discussion or anything, but do you have a few quick bullet points for your climate change denial? I'm just curious :)

    Didn't get diagnosed with dysgraphia until after college. I remember being yelled at for being lazy or faking pain just to get out of schoolwork. Or being tutored just because they thought I was mildly retarded due to inability to write like the rest of the children.

    However, playing guitar is not a problem at all, I highly recommend trying it again and practicing for a while. Took me a few years of leisurely playing, but it's highly enjoyable and you can do basic things without issue. I've even started to get back into handwriting and improving it steadily, 70% of the time I don't fall back to my 3rd grader scribble :D

    But then you might be accused editorializing the article by putting a bias the article didn't intend. You can't win here.

    So you're our "Let's not be Reddit" bot? I've read the article, it's not great or informative and a summary is appreciated.

    Tildes, because I want to believe.

    Noah Caldwell-Gervais, a long form youtuber with excellent insight into my favorite video games. His travelogues are truly outstanding though. He put into words things that I could only feel while traveling the USA.

    Cloth Map (Drew Scanlon/Blinking White Guy), Drew is a treasure and I hope he comes back to Giant Bomb some day. Until that time I can only throw him a few bucks to do journalism about video game cultures in other countries.

    To be fair, the reason some of us were dissatisfied with reddit in the first place is the ambiguous stand on places like T_D, and various other hate oriented groups. There's a difference between allowing discussion, and outright assholery, doxxing, and brigading. Hopefully Tildes will keep to its message, for your sake and mine.

    I'm hoping for an equivalent to /r/patientgamers coming to Tildes eventually. It's nice to discuss older games, bring back memories or finally get to gems you might have missed.

    I picked up Caves of Qud a few months ago and quite liked it. So many options for builds and so much depth. It continues to kick my ass, though. Still stuck doing the brute Praetorian build, just so I can see more of the world before I pick a discover a build I like. I tend to cycle my roguelikes every few months, and this one's in the rotation soon.

    You're right, of course, preparedness is not just the material wherewithal. Knowing what to do in a situation is not the same as having to do it, or even being able to do it. Never thought about that part actively, but maybe I should.

    Recently found Battle Tapes, a dance-y electronic rock type of music. I'm really digging the sound, but they only have one album out and a few EPs, and I want more!

    These have been fairly popular and I really like hearing from the community, so here's this week's thread.

    I've been playing Golf Story for the Switch (got it on recent sale). I've found it relaxing and amusing, a good combo for evening wind-down. I'm not sure if I mastered the mechanics yet, putting is surprisingly hard when you can't see the slope in 3D. Story is fun, and the variety in courses is refreshing, highly recommended.

    Just purchased Football Manager 2018. I'm not actually a football fan or anything, I just really like the RPG-like nature of assembling a good team and seeing my amateur tactics play out on the field. Games can be surprisingly tense and exciting. I wish I had a deeper understanding of the game, but it's fun enough regardless.

    That's a good point about pets, I just realized that I do not usually store more than a few weeks worth of food. Time to buy a few boxes!

    This isn't a preper specific question, but a general preparedness thread. How prepared for general emergencies are you: apartment fires, blackouts, car emergencies, get-out-of-dodge situations, EDC, etc.

    I'm interested in hearing how my fellow tildoes think and prepare :)

    It's not a little misleading, it's basically clickbait. Even their subheader doesn't support it: "The world’s biggest waste importer is no longer buying. So where’s all that trash going to go?"

    Are you playing it with any mods? There's a bunch of them out there to enhance the base game, or to turn it into something completely different.

    I really wanted to like the first one, but it's such a slog. I've even put it on the lowest difficulty, but I can't bring myself to go through the motions. On the bright side, the second game will be on some kind of sale by the time I get to it.
