  1. This Day In History

    Now that's just not true. Ships managed their foresails with booms long before that.

    Given that they wanted to and STILL want to murder me, my wife, my father, my brother, his children and more other people than I can readily count, I do not feel inclined to spare their tender feelings.
  5. Things That Are Just Annoying

    It's true as long as you are bigger and heavier than anyone else on the road. You would not believe how safe I feel in my Leopard II. Oh sure, I hear this occasional crunchy noise as I drive but I don't think it is the engine, I check it coming back home and it seems fine.

    Yes. That's fear. Is fear a cultural contribution? Am I unfairly representing Nazis when I say of them that people feared and hated them? Should I feel concerned about their feelings? But doing what Shriver recommends and completely ignore those people who may be harmed is no solution either.

    Look, I apologised already and I promise I won't let any more von Dänikenites in to look for alien technology in your pyramid. The last batch was a mistake anyway.

    Look, let's just end this, please. This is not helping me with my burnout and my stress and it keeps nagging at me. I am willing to concede that I set a high bar for what is a cultural contribution of lasting value that makes its originating group entitled to name themself a culture, but it is in the context of the start of the discussion which deals with cultural appropriation and abuse of culture that provides an identity. All I am asking for is some sort of cultural contribution you can identify with that isn't either eating your fellow human beings or mass murder.

    Hahahahahahahaha. Have you ever tried to read it? I defy you to read even the first half of it without giving up. I am STILL struggling to read the damned thing and I have beat my brains out against it for more than a year. But seriously, I would like you to try. And then explain precisely what is in it that you see as a cultural contribution.
  11. NP September 10, 2018

    But I did not do that. I asked you to provide an example of a Nazi cultural contribution with staying power that they hadn't just copied from somewhere else. You still haven't.
  12. NP September 10, 2018

    You won it anyway. Consider it an award for playing Nazi apologist to a man whose family was almost murdered by the 'cultural contributions' of the Nazis.
  13. NP September 10, 2018

    I am too tired to continue this so you win. Nazis are a pinnacle of culture and since you admire them so much for all of me you can keep them. Maybe you can have a stay in a concentration camp sometime so you can marvel at Nazism at its peak.
  14. Things you have no idea how to feel about

    Personally I did not like 4E but I felt that its popularity fully justified its existence. I had a ton of 3.0 stuff and even 3.5 stuff that I loved and no law kept me from continuing to use it. So I nodded to 4E, wished the people who liked it much happy gaming and continued on my old fashioned way. For me it was far more important that people got to enjoy roleplaying in general than the exact version or flavour they did it with.
