This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

By the way, good news. The new variant, Omicron or whatever it's called, may present with mild symptoms including so far no known loss of taste and smell. Most common symptoms with this strain appear to be rapid heart beat, a fever, both of which seem to go away in a few days.

It's the natural evolution of a virus to become more contagious, but less lethal. Just as Delta was less severe than Alpha, so Omicron is less severe again than Delta.

Even less reason to risk an adverse reaction with an experimental therapeutic treatment.

As for the "rapid heart beat" - bollocks. That's them trying to sweep the "mysterious" cardiac side effects of the jabs under the carpet.

Naw the rapid heart beat was detected in unvaccinated kids in South Africa. But you go on with your batshit conspiracy theories.

Perhaps those that are concerned with catching covid should get a prescription for a Bubblixa. If it can beat southern pollen, it will kick covid's ass.

I didn't need anything more than paracetamol and ibuprofen last time.

Therefore everyone has a mild case, because you did.

Fatties, oldies and people with broken immune systems, don't, no.

Healthy people, nothing to concern themselves about.

And the sick (e.g. the sugar, the pressure, auto-immune conditions, cancer).

See "people with broken immune systems". Either way, they are a tiny minority.

No one can help being old, but fatties have no excuse. We've known for two years now that being overweight significantly impacts your risk factor, that's more than enough time to get a grip of your eating and activity choices and sort yourself out.

Variants will keep popping. Can’t call a lockdown, lockdown if only restaurants and barbershops get closed. The way Australia is handling things is likely the most effective way had it been adopted here since the very beginning. There’s no point in shutting anything down anymore.

Yes, the selective evolutionary pressure created by the jabs will spur ever more variants. Fortunately, they're getting milder even as they ignore the jabs limited "protection".

Australia is a dystopian nightmare, there's nothing of value to be learned there.

Yeah, throwing the aborigines in camps is clearly the way to go.

Fucking racist.

I somewhat doubt Donald Trump putting black people in concentration camps would have gone over well.

Must every point of view, whether left or right be met with this word? You can misconstrue any statement and spin, twist it into something favorable towards your ideology. I don’t understand it, does it make you feel better or something?

Au contraire mon ami. You can learn much from Australia, for example NEVER, EVER, surrender your guns, under no circumstance no matter what they tell you.
