    Apparently half of America didn't watch the Presidential Debate (there are a lot of Americans, so 100 million is still nothing to scoff at)

This looks to me like using maths, geography AND proof reading. Such change since the last week. This can only mean one thing…

Within the depths of Europe, Devac was making yet another overly-dramatic gesture with a chess piece.

"Another subtle change over America!" he pontificated to no-one in particular. "If I'll play it perfectly they will start using the holy Metric System! Oh, I tremble with excitement! What should be next? Foreign languages? Or, dare I say it, chemistry?"

He wasn't the villain that America wanted, but a one it needed. Please ignore the people in the background mining out ISO ore.

Gonna pull this for the darker, grittier Hubskina reboot directed by Zach Snyder

By all means, do it!

If it matters, I was compelled to start it when my GM accepted the challenge to make the most useless 'villain'. One exchange went like this:

    V: HAHA! We meet again, vagrants!

    Paladin: Is he talking to us?

    Cleric: Oh, I remember him! He was that guy who made peasants in the last village demand healing… which we would do anyway.

    Me (Rogue): Why are you calling us vagrants?

    V: No permanent keep, no stable income. What else should you be?

    Paladin (pulling the villain's leg but saying in the most knightly ye olde way possible): Ney! What manner of wizardry had doust use to uncover our keenest of secrets, fiend!?

    V (GM managed a triumphant tone despite wanting to laugh): It's not the time and place to discuss it, for I have arranged the peasantry… a school.

    Me: gasp

    Cleric: You monster! They are but children!

    V: It's only one of the many sly plans I have prepared for you. Soon, the referendum to decide your fate will be called and thy deeds shall be judged by vox populi!

    Paladin (I don't know if it was in or out of character): What's vox populi?

    V: The children know it already. From school.

Here we had to have a little break because it was too much of silliness. :D
