nowaypablo got like 45m left to pick which unit to build !

When the lady who ran https://www.flattenthecurve.com/ (Julie McMurry) quit running the site, posted on twitter about how we're doomed, and exited society. At the time that was by far the most levelheaded and reasonable site on what to do about COVID, and seeing that site turn into apocolyptia was terrifying.

Oh man I loved that game so much.

No senate 😔

I really don't get what ~48% of the country is on that they could look at what's been happening and still vote for trump. It's really disheartening

Thanks for getting the UF Boardgame Club an interview with Vincent Baker, esteemed designer of the hit indie RPG Apocalypse World among others :)

I really really appreciate the thoughtful comments - thats probably half the reason why I come to this site - to see the perspectives of a cool group of people, and importantly, the same group of people. I love kleinbl00's norman rockwell rants and _refugee_'s art galleries.

But I agree though, it does make a high bar for a comment. I myself basically only comment on pubskis, light "facebook-level shitposting" like the movie post, and meta things (like this!), and maybe that's a good thing, but it definitely is a thing

Gonna be real - doing pretty badly

Out of college & at a full time salaried job. In college, I had a amazing group of friends that I loved dearly, and while social media is okay, having a discord call once a week really isn't the same. And soon I'll be moving to Clearwater FL (nearish tampa) presumably and I've been very anxious that that place is going to be a boring suburb.

Side note: how the hell are you expected to find friends after college? And when the hell are you expected to do anything if you have to wake up at 8am every day?

And the job is feeling kinda demoralizing since it just sunk in that the product we're going to be shipping will inevitably be a hard to use buggy mess and while we're trying to polish it up as much as possible I can't see it being in a place I can be proud of in time.

Long and short is: don't really have anything to look forward to, short or long term

Anyways, sorry for the rant, don't really know what parts of this are covid, what are just "growing up", and what are more personal. Bah. Just got new headphones tho so that's something
