Finally, the CEO of a brokerage house explained that he had nearly completed building his own underground bunker system and asked, “How do I maintain authority over my security force after the event?”

I suggested that their best bet would be to treat those people really well, right now. They should be engaging with their security staffs as if they were members of their own family. And the more they can expand this ethos of inclusivity to the rest of their business practices, supply chain management, sustainability efforts, and wealth distribution, the less chance there will be of an “event” in the first place. All this technological wizardry could be applied toward less romantic but entirely more collective interests right now.

They were amused by my optimism, but they didn’t really buy it.

There's a reason Peter Thiel bought himself New Zealand citizenship. Rich people have been planning to bug out once the system collapses for awhile. New Zealand itself is a popular destination.

Personally if I were a New Zealander I would club and eat them as soon as they step off the plane.

Welp, Blizzard finally destroyed the Undercity.

It's official, World of Warcraft has more permanent changes than Armageddon.  ;D
“When I was a fighting man, the kettle-drums they beat;
The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

I didn't like the look of Brill now anyway.

My job that doesn't give me the 2 15-minute breaks that I'm entitled to by law wrote me up for using the bathroom on the clock. Do I contact a lawyer before or after I report them to the Kentucky labor board?

I'll think I'll do before to make sure I have all the details in the grievance detailed right.

Change You will take no mercy! to You will show no mercy! It sounds more metal...

It does say "You will show no mercy!" though!

When I kayak sometimes I think:

"Am I kayaking? Or... am I fighting the water with a gythka staff?"

Make c-elves 1 karma requirement. Make them suffer a depression moodlet that lowers their mv by half if they get fired from their tribe. Half-elves should suffer thids moodlet based on a roll at each login.
