Also this thread's almost three years old. Also also there's occasionally discussion of sads, not just more sads.

Tried to find someone to hang out with tonight all day, but nope. No parties, and everyone who's in a relationship is going out on a date. I'm sitting here alone watching the oven for two of those people. This is not what I wanted to be doing right now.

Feeling really depressed, and nothing is really holding my interest long enough to distract me at all.

Also my CK2 game kept trying to REALLY screw me over. After a load of shenanigans where I arrested a bunch of people and revoked a bunch of titles which led to a big ol' civil war, I managed to get my granddaughter the empress elected as the king of Italy. I then swapped Italy to primogeniture succession, then fight off a bunch of rebellions.

Then I realized that the empress, in her great wisdom, had decided to set city taxes to minimum... Understand that since I had Venice and Genoa and various other cities in my demesne that had been maxed out in terms of wealth production this meant that my income was basically cut by 2/3rds. Which meant that a large amount of my power base was gone. She had also decided to start a vote to get to absolute power in the empire, which I couldn't cancel, and stood no chance of winning, not especially now I've pissed off most of my vassals by swapping a kingdom to primogeniture (I don't know why the king of Serbia got so pissed at me for swapping Italy's succession laws, I can imagine he might not be that happy about it, but a -50 relationship penalty? Really?).

There was also a crusade to take back Greece which had been taken over in a Jihad previously. It wasn't going well, in fact war score was at about -50%. Fortunately I was at that time capable of fielding a pretty big army, especially when I threw in two holy orders. So I crushed the infidels army despite it being twice my size by attacking forces that were moving to join up with it and then luring it into fighting me on advantageous ground, which let me crush their army flat. I was feeling pretty chuffed with myself for single handedly turning this crusade around, and I was about to cry havoc when the crusade suddenly ended and Sweden got Greece... Despite having a rather low war score. I started trying to manoeuvre to gain control of Greece, but all the vassals the Queen of Sweden put there wound up rebelling against her and then a bunch of them started getting gobbled up by infidels again and I had to deal with more rebelling vassals.

Then holy roman emperor finally decided he wanted Italy back... and unfortunately with my coffers running dry and my income crippled I don't think I can hire the mercenaries I need to win.

Well, I've probably either made my friends concerned over my well-being or get the alienated towards me. Basically we were discussing our views on politics, religion and whatnot like we usually do. I just don't normally tell them my full views on things to refrain from being offensive or seem like I'm a depressed sociopath. It just sort of all came out during our latest discussion though, and they were sort of surprised. I went into a tangent, I don't really get to talk about my own actual personal views often seeing as how if I tell my family they'll think I'm either going through a phase of depression or actually say that my opinions are messed up.

Well, you do have a busy life, what with keeping tabs on wild, rough-and-tumble forum members while sorting out the drama between your twenty two inner lesbians.
Your drunk posts continue to baffle me.

Well, are they messed up?

First thought that comes to mind is wild misanthropy, but if you care about other people's opinions it's not that (at least not without some cognitive dissonance).

Quote from: Chesterton
For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

Ugh, harry potter fanfiction. Some of it is good, but the rest of the stuff reads like it was written by 3 year olds, which would be pretty bad, but worse they usually have such promising plotlines, that I can't follow because of the horribad writing. I'm not just talking spelling mistakes here, though those are pretty awful as well, the worst is the very stilted conversations. Ugh. Admittedly I'm no paragon of literary achievement myself, but still.

Ooh, that reminds me of this fanfic of Portal (2). It's one ideal of a fanfic, in which the characters actually talk and act consistently to the originals', and the story is a logical, plausible and touching continuation of the original. And he writes OK.

Not sad, but just in case there's any Portal 2 fans out there xD

This might be old news, but apparently some creationists don't know how electricity works on a basic level.

The image from their textbook kind of kills me a little inside. The fact that it was written by someone that actually graduated from a university makes it that much more painful.

HOW? I had electricity first explained to me in fairly good detail in third grade. It's in the curriculum! (In Washington State.)

That was so ... disturbingly funny. People don't say the electromagnetism field of science is almost a 'finished' field now for no reason.
Also, random Bible quote.
