    The Lunar Discovery: A Post-Game Xenonauts Fanfic Oneshot (FiC Writing Competition entry)

    Ok, so FiC is doing a fanfic competition and I decided to join in. It's something of a oneshot, taking a peak of a greater setting that I would have for any post-game Xenonauts fic that I would write. It isn't my best but given the 5k limit, I hope I do decently. @Horton, @Alias, and @Jakarta, I...

    An Iron Harvest Oneshot Thing

    So, I was at the Iron Harvest discord and, well, they were like 'when is fanfiction about the setting going to happen' and I said 'I'll have my hand in it' and... well... this very short idea came up. I'll post it here for posterity reasons. This features Friedrich Wilhelm Viktor Albert of...

    Frozen In Carbonite Writing Competition Thread

    I'm in a bit of a writing slump and I can't do it in a day. :( If you keep it at the 15th, then I'll get something out but I need time.

    Frozen In Carbonite Writing Competition Thread

    ... maybe doing something else would help me with the funk that I'm in right now. I'll probably get a oneshot or something later... Maybe have my Iron Harvest oneshot worked a little more... ... or just go with some stupid crazy idea about a setting where magic, tech, and magitech are used...

    The Trump-Russia Investigation Thread: Mueller Goes Terminator Edition

    That might not be the case, exactly... as what little we believe is happening between Putin and Trump is due to Putin having 'dirt' on Trump. Stein might be in the same boat, but I wouldn't put money on it.

    Concerns abouts US nuclear weapons based in Turkey

    Saw this in SB, the thing is that this is a not-news item. Those nukes are still stored in the US base in Turkey, under lock and key, and the PAL locks make sure that even if -somehow- Erdogan tried to take them by force they're no more than expensive paperweights at best, fancy dirty bombs at...

    United Nations could run out of money by the end of the month

    In my A New World setting, the UN got killed by a combination of the world being effectively 'on fire' and Russia putting the final nail in the coffin. Quite a few of the organizations survived (with quite a few of the 'blue hats' not going back to their respective nations, including Pakistanis...

    EROI and Civilisation

    Given that France's nuclear reactors are an anomaly in terms of the West in how much power is generated by them (well over three-quarters), with Japan looking to decommission theirs? I wouldn't bet on it lasting. Period. If we are going to fight anti-nuclear, we'll probably have to treat it in...

    EROI and Civilisation

    You really can't. The best way that renewables can be used is as part of a supplement for nuclear reactors. Basically, renewables are very niche when it comes to placement and has periods where they're not even viable in the first place (solar and the night for example or no wind for windmills)...

    Threadmarks Introduction to Memetic Weapons

    In setting, of something like this shows up, shit is going to go down: Why do you ask? Because memetic weapons/hazards are a thing and the various factions have entire departments dedicated to searching and destroying memetic ordinance every day. Memetic warfare is quite similar to other...

    MOVIE: RICHARD JEWELL (Atlanta 1996 Bombing)

    This is a movie about Richard Jewell, a white guy who was a security guard during the Atlanta 1996 bombing, saving quite a few people in the process by discovering the bomb before it detonated. The FBI had him as a Person of Interest and, well, the media lapped it up and made him look like the...

    What are your most controversial or unpopular opinions?

    The thing is, out of all the nations in the history of the World, two (to my immediate knowledge) of them can be considered the least bastardly: US and Imperial Germany. Everyone else is either basically genocide happy scumbags (Britain and France got away with a lot during their times as...
