Is it my turn to make an post? Alrighty

I go by many names but online most call me Fuku/Fooks.

Currently exist in the UK, but I'd love to be somewhere else. Used to live in Japan.

I love learning languages, much to the detriment of my friends who already speak them and have to deal with my awful attempts.

As for games, you'll mostly find me on FFXIV, but I love almost any strategy game I can play. (HOI4, EUIV, AoE, AoW, Civ etc.)

A thoroughly boring person IRL.

in a single day my hair has gone from Kiryu Coco to Kiryu Kazuma

gender isn't real stop destroying forests

Out of all the games, video or otherwise that I've played in my entire life, the one I've had by far the most fun with is D&D.

I don't know what it is about it, maybe I just love working with others to build a great narative together and it's only gotten even better since I started DMing.

LGBT rights in Poland, police brutality 

Please fucking boost this as far as possible. Please, PLEASE.

A Polish trans activist named Margot was arrested. Her "crime" is minor destruction of property (she cut up a tarp on a truck covered with vicious anti-LGBT propaganda).

Her pre-emptive arrest for two months was authorized by a court, despite the fact that such arrest, by Polish law, are meant to be used for people who are a flight risk or an immediate danger to others.

But wait, there's more.

I was gonna say that dunking on people is like fast food of discourse, but it's more like the smoking of discourse

it's kinda counterproductive, and some people weirdly seem to think it makes them cooler

I have a #translation question about #Japanese.

Usually I hear people translating "kami" as "god" in a one-to-one fashion. How accurate is this?

I feel like "god" in western cultures, thanks to religion, has connotation of all-powerful being that directs human affairs and morality. And is mostly human-shaped.

Whereas "kami" seems to be more like... powerful non-human creatures, but without much direct interest in human affairs and morality? That's what Japanese entertainment looks like to me.

you know that chart that goes like "would never say fuck", "says fuck regularly", "hasn't said fuck but would if needed" etc.

that's actually a surprisingly useful thing to decide for your d&d character, to nail down the vibe you're going for

D&D + 

I can't get over how amazing my players are for my first time DMing, they're such an eclectic cast of interesting characters who are RPed brilliantly and I'm really lucky to have them as part of my group.

UK, COVID, The Most Stupid Idea 

Wait, what the fuck. Why are we making it law to giving a £10 discount to restaurants during a pandemic?

It makes COVID worse and helps business owners and people who can already afford to eat out. What the fuck are they thinking?
