I have so many ideas for video games that would be difficult to make yet that couldn't be more aggressively anti-commercial if they spent 146 straight hours kicking Jeff Bezos in the ribs.

Strategy organization/management sim where the game's objective is to unionize an industry.

Birbsite suggests my human'sona follow The Official feed for 'The Secret' books and now I have to throw my head back and laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaugh.

Today I learned that two of the oldest living (human) males in the world were both born the 15th of October, 1905. They're not twins. Gustav Gerneth was born in Germany, Manoel Dionisio da Silva in Brazil. They just happen to be hanging in there.

(Also, Morgan was a prolific and most creative inventor: biography.com/people/garrett-m ... and yeah, his 1914 gas mask was more a canvas hood than what gets drawn on FurAffinity, but it's still a great bit of work.)

They've got the dragon trapped under tarp and netting and for the first time in the movie it looks real and alive and plausibly something someone might be scared by.

Finally, some dragon. It's been like half an hour since we saw him.
