  1. First it's "Four legs good, two legs bad" which magically transforms to "Four legs good two legs better" after the pigs get a taste of power. Perceptive guy that Orwell.
  2. What does 9/11 have to do with this? We're talking about the CPC. If you're a 9/11 Truther and you're not going to be rational, it's end of discussion, sorry. I'm not going there.
  3. Not hypocritical at all - the sins of various American governments are vast and profound, as anyone who's read A People's History of the United States, or followed any news of the last 40 years, Vietnam, Iraq, read any Chomsky (if you can stand him). America is a troubled place. But that is small potatoes compared to the CPC, in terms of badness and threat to humanity. Mao's numbers alone should be proof of that.
  4. Oh, go ahead and judge jeff. The very very last thing the world should be concerned with is offending the Communist Party of China at this point. CCP should be apologizing to everyone for its behaviour and existence. Ask the brave Hong Kong students. Ask the 1 million Uighurs, Kazakhs and other Muslims estimated to be held in heavily guarded internment camps. Ask the two Canadians illegally detained. Ask the millions of ordinary Chinese who have to live in the police state with no human rights. Hey let's talk Fentanyl. No? Ok how about money laundering? No again? Currency manipulation? Intellectual Property theft? No, don't want to talk about that. How about the 4000 dead in Tiananmen Square? No again I assume. So then, how about the high end estimate of 77 million dead in the Mao's "Great Leap Forward" ? Guess that's a non-starter too. But hey they're shipping masks around now, so that's something.
  5. Fine, but there was nothing in my post "suggesting that potentially millions of people die", if that's what your referencing. That is your interpretation. There is also a high degree of subjectivity in deciding what is "prone to huge arguments" and what is not, but since that's your job I'll leave you to it.
  6. @Exio - nice post. You put a lot of thought into that, probably more than the playerbase here deserves, frankly. I would like to see a shotgun in the game more or less as you described and would trade the revolver for it. (along with a reasonable spear and slingshot)
  7. Amazing guy and inventions. Thanks for sharing.
  8. Weak ice in general. Along the coast, ok, that must be salt-water, although even oceans freeze up obviously when cold enough. But in FM? That's freshwater and would freeze several metres thick in these conditions (if it's somehow connected to the ocean I'd like to see how/where).
  9. Careful! The R word and its derivatives (reality/realistic/realism/real-life) are naughty words around here and improper use thereof can get you in trouble
  10. Hours of sheer terror punctuated by moments of boredom.
  11. Maybe the big storm messed up the climate so much and it's so cold that perhaps the polar bear decided to wander south!

    Ya, the revolver surprised me - a shotgun seems to be a more natural fit given the circumstances - hunting lodge, farm, trapper's cabin - and literally would give us a better shot against timberwolves.
  13. Binocs would be really nice - but I'd be happy with a scope for the rifle.
