    The folks in charge were less than happy about a female avatar and outright opposed to a female poc avatar. Only gave them two seasons and then begrudgingly gave them more when those two did really well.

    And made them shut down any outright non-hetero interactions with the avatar. Hence them going into the spiritworld as friends wink was the best they could do at the end.

    I have a d&d world buzzing around in my head for 20 years. I could never make a map because i was concerned with things like plate tectonics, ocean currents, etc etc. So maybe this will help.

    Which is insane, because that's exactly what cheeto is. Payback for us having the gall to elect Obama TWICE.

    Conservatives don't want the next Democratic presidency to be a matter of "payback";

    Once this is over (next year sometime in the states) I'm sure my job will be rushing to get people back into the office. Not gonna lie. Its been nice having the entire floor to myself for three months.

    Gotta say, I really enjoyed that. Shame that even if I sent it to people who support him they wouldn't read or believe it.

    Exactly the point my wife and I are at. We are both considering doing a write in for Sanders or Warren. Yes, that will help get chetto re-elected but a message has to be sent.

    It's totally a profit over quality problem. Why take time and make something that will last when you can put up two cheaper versions in the same time frame for the same price. The upkeep on the two cheaper units will absolutely destroy your bottom line, but that's a problem for which ever sucker buys them from you.

    I'm going full on peaceful socialist star trek future here.

    WORK
    A four day 6 hour work week under a UBI system or a non-monetary system.
    Id love to do manual labor but my body doesn't like it any more so I guess I could keep doing IT support.
    One volunteer day doing some type of community (re)building would probably get my manual labor fix in.

    HOME
    A well built (sound insulated) 1 bedroom with an office/den area apartment for me and the cats in a major city so I could take public transportation and have lots of diversity around me.

    RECREATION
    Digital recreation would include some light computer gaming along with finishing my book series.
    Outside would be hiking every other weekend, maybe even some camping here and there.

    Ahhh to dream.

    Grawlix put it better but it bears repeating.

    Compromise only works when the other party is willing.

    Republicans in office have shown for what, 11? years now that they have absolutely no interest in meeting in the middle. If it's not what they want, they wont even show up to the table.

    So at this point cooperation is out the door.
