GOD - No, you have to roll.
CH- *rolls again* I got a 1? Does this mean I cut my face off or something?
GOD - No, it means you forget to shave completely. Make a will save to see if you forget to wear clothes to work.
CH- I hate this game...

I got my stapler back!!!
come now. Let's not decend into such unwholesome depths. No accusations or putting words into people's mouths.
It is interesting that when someone says why they don't like affirmative action, they are racists. It's... predictable, useless and boring by now. It's more than a decade since anyone took it seriously.
The reasons behind such as a feeling are usually telling. I'm not in favor of affirmative action because I don't like race based quotas of any sort, nor do I like token hires. Someone who simply wants to get a job at the direct expense of another or a group of people because they think that anyone else other than those who are like themselves could EVER get the position without outside help is probably bigoted and may or may not realize it.

I'm going to need some evidence regarding the loan thing. I'm black as the day is long and I've never been approved for any loan beyond perhaps a credit card. Did this hapo n because I was black or because I have bad credit (which I do)?
Also regarding the union, could you see who had passed with what score? Doesn't this mean that a white guy could have been admitted with a 65 and a black guy on the job could have had, say, 90?
Moreover, what is the government supposed to do for you that they should not do for an Asian woman or anyone else? The old "special privileges" thing gets trotted out often, but most often, it is the person bemoaning it that wants special privileges too, not so much an even playing field. Not accusing you, mind, just wondering what you want done or not done.
The only racism I recall against Asians of late was when Jeremy Lin was on the Knicks - i was a big fan of linsanity, and I want him on the Nets - at least one sportscaster lost his job when he made a "witty" remark regarding Asians and, ah, protective gear. He was fired immediately. But I'm not Asian, so I don't see it much. I don't see much racism against native americans at all, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
I was kidding around saying that I was getting extra foam from your diatribe... But its not funny if I have to explain it.
Because there is an ugly history that has encouraged black people to be servile to whites, and that *anything* outside of that, in *any* way, equals threatening. The history here is convoluted, but a reality. Blacks were seen as prone to violence in the name of revenge during reconstruction, due to massive amounts of cocaine use and crime the years following, because they were not appropriately evolved towards the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries and so on. Shins son has an inherent right to be as much of a jerk as the next guy without running the risk of being killed harmed or detained because he is somehow dangerous.
IIRC,he tried to regain his appearance once to visit his wife. He turned into J. Random White Guy every time. So...yeah, race didn't matter here. Satan would have made sure he looked like someone else other than himself every time.
To my knowledge, it's sexual assault. Not cool. Inform him that this was not a prank, and that he crossed the line. He could open himself up to considerable legal action if you so choose, and essentially ruin his life. This is regardless of the gender/sexual identity/physical sex of the people involved.

They took away the stapler actually. Could have been used as a weapon against me. They left the tape dispenser though, and I keep the hole punch (which could be a real weapon considering the weight and metallic construction) on my side of the desk at all times. I do have a pretty cool conch shell on the other side of the desk, so someone having a bad day could potentially throw it at me, or use it to summon aquaman, who would be pissed at having to come this far inland through polluted water and will likely kick my ass.
Beaten by aquaman... How would I live that down...
The most interesting and mature loophole I have ever seen.

Yes, I see where you are going with this. It could be quite offensive.
those who dislike the GREATEST MOVIE EVER MADE will be... dealt with.
Insulting SKR isn't very tasteful at this moment in time. Or any moment, but really bad taste right now.
Some of Rynjin's ideas are interesting, some I have already included, some are a matter of personal preference, and some are just dumb.
I don't think we're really going to get very far in this thread because there are lines that are just in different places for different people due primarily to personal experience- some people in this thread don't agree with me encouraging a link of some kind between one's physical appearance with their charisma score in my games largely because they didn't have to deal with twink I did, for example. It might be wiser to come out with your takes on rulings and your own houserules and come up with some middle ground with the people at the table. I like what I did with the fighters and monks for my own campaign setting, others might not, but if they were to show up at my house and table for a game of Freehold, I'd try to work something out with them. The biggest problem I find is a lack of DM and Player options written into the ruleset- a buffet of strangeness that both sides of the screen can choose from. I've tried to incorporate this into my stuff as best as possible, and will continue to do so as long as I play the game.
New Mutants...changed my life. It truly did.
Tin foil hat's on a bit tight there, sir.

A few minor quibbles- Prowler's dead and has been for some time. He's not coming back, even in Marvel terms- that shows you how little he mattered. Rocket Racer was always meh...but damn, if I didn't look up to him as a kid. I never learned how to ride rollerskates/blade/skateboard, but I ride a bike. Battestar has always been a bit of a semi-sore point for me- he's the "black" Captain America, or at least he was sold like that back in the day, but he never really WAS Cap. Still, at least they understood why he shouldn't be called "Bucky"....
The latino/hispanic heroes- VERY well done. Minor quibble- they f%&+ing killed off Feral..I loved her so much, if that makes me a furry, then I don't want to not be one. Her death was particularly stupid. Sunspot has been my hero since I was a little kid, I thought all black people should have had Sunspot's powers, lol. Rictor was AWESOME all around, but when was the last time you saw Living Lightning?

had no problem with alba as sue. Don't see why so many did, she was fine. Mr. Fantastic was more than a bit wooden, I thought.
Also, remember when I said I was editing QUILTBAG erotica? Well, the place REALLY liked what I did - I'm not going to be editing piece by piece, I'm going to be their go to editor from now on! I already signed one contract for piece by piece work, another is being sent to replace that one with my new role as line and content editor!! I'm also getting a copy of the first work I edited sent to my house!
I'M FREAKING OUT!!!!!!
I play female characters all the time in computer games and often in tabletop games. It's important to get out of oneself sometimes.
