Re: The Gojoe Memorial Mafia Discussion Thread

Texas Hold'em Town draws: 6h/3c/5d/2c/3h/ Kd / Qh /6d/ Qc Scum draws: 2s/ Ks /3s This actually is probably one of the more balanced draws I think. Two trackers + Vig vs. Rolestopper. This setup does have potential for some very imbalanced setups (5+ Town PRs vs all goons, for example), but t...

Re: Is adult media inherently better than child media?

Similarly, a movie with themes and a plot like Toy Story wouldn't carry nearly as much emotional force as it does if it was written for adults. It's a story about how children relate to toys and how toys relate to children. Making it targeted at children is what gives it so much emotional and intel...

Long story short, if you think adult media is better than child media, then you are logically required to think porn has aesthetic valuable.

Being nice to people is how you make friends. It's reciprocal, and generates reciprocity. Ideally, yes, but that's not always true.
