random stuff

A riddle! Not mine:

We are little airy creatures,
All of different voice and features;
One of us in glass is set,
One of us you'll find in jet,
T'other you may see in tin,
And the fourth a box within;
If the fifth you should pursue,
It can never fly from you.

----

I've sometimes seen "lady/princess in the streets, hooker/slut/??? in the sheets". Today I saw "Senpai in the streets, Hentai in the sheets."

getting RPGs on the same page tool

I found the wording and some of the ideas here deeply questionable, and after looking at other posts, the reason became exceedingly clear - this person's views are pretty much dead center of what I consider to be a deeply problematic RPG ideology that combines a mixture of both a demand for ideological purity and a contempt for both most gamers and the games they prefer, and the posts on this site include an abundance jargon created (or in many cases, stolen and then modified) by several people (the most notable being Ron Edwards - who was for a while the demagogue for this ideology) who actually told gamers that they only liked games he disapproved of because they were deluded or mentally ill.

From my PoV, much of the advice on this site is an awesome way to make gaming less enjoyable.
