As they wind through town, the Mitran priest!Lars smiles and waves to those he passes.  He makes a point of telling folks that he's traveling with some souls that need guidance and if he can covert a bugbear or two, then so much the brighter the world will be.

Lars smiles when he hears the news.  "Wonderful," he whispers back.  "If things get odd, she can leave for a trip.  Little reason to suspect that the man who walked out of town is dead."

The song Database by MAN WITH A MISSION (yes, in all capital letters; they're a Japanese band using English in their name) won't get out of my head. Helps that it's the opening for an anime I like, Log Horizon.

Nice song!  Is Log Horizon any good?  That sounds like a weird question given that you stated you like it, but I guess what I'm asking, is how does it stack up with other, well known anime?  How accessible is it?

Glass Reflection's review of Log Horizon

Thanks.

Carefully about generalizing and stereotyping.

While some, heck a lot, live down to it most frat life is pretty much your standard college experience with more bills and an assumption of guilt by administration.

I had a lot of negative experiences with folks in fraternities.  Not trying to stereotype.  Not trying to offend.

Close.  So, very close.  But I'm thinking more Greek letters and fewer inhibitions.

You can hang on my lawn, Wolvie.
Mine too.

My initial reply was, "I'm stunned it took this long for the last of those shows to go."

It's not like they've been any good for the last couple decades...
Sadly, true.  I'm awaiting the day that what passes for entertainment is a live feed of an insane asylum or a frat house.

Slavery makes for a more plausible story.  I didn't say better, just more plausible.

... our "Corporate Citizens" make the Nazis look like Boy Scouts of America earning their Eagle Scout.

Please explain.  This does not make sense to me.

Our SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) in recent years declared certain 'rights' to corporations that were held only for actual people.  From there, the term "Corporate Citizen" spawned.  The idea that corporations inside the United States are as important as actual citizens.  Terrifying concept made worse by lobbyists.  As Valentina put very fittingly, their behavior in recent decades has been terrible.

The socio-economics of the US is very much in dire straights.  And I say that as a guy who is lucky enough not to be in the bottom half of that stratosphere.  We've built a game where the powerful can get rich, the rich can get powerful, and the every day person just has to pray they find a way through to squeak out an existence.  When the $15T US comes do, we're all joking ourselves if we think our 1% is going to stick around to help pay it back.

If we wish to discuss corporations behaving badly, I get where you're coming from.  Don't get me started on the idea that somehow Washington, Jefferson and company would approve of using immenent domain to remove property from a private citizen and give it to a business for more tax revenues.  Current situation terrifyingly close to some of Gibson's work?  Yes.  But worse than the Nazis?  Um, no.

Damn, that's depressing.  It does mean that I'll pay more attention if anyone mentions that type of story to me.  I won't just shrug it off as someone being dramatic.

I'm on a business trip that has me tied up pretty bad.  I should be writting a report right now.  At any rate, I'm reading the action and enjoying it.

This looks awful.  In about every dimension I can think of for the word "look."
