It is always enlightening to discuss the stock market with a teenager.

Impus Major points out that it's a completely artificial construct, stockbrokers and investors are nothing but leeches on society, and the world would be a better place if the stock market didn't exist.

I could not disagree with him... except...

I had to point out that because all the major governments and corporations agree that it exists, they put most of their liquid assets into it, so if the stock market were to vanish tomorrow, most companies could not afford to pay their workers, purchase additional inventory, etc., and so the "real" economy would come crashing down and send us into a depression the likes of which we'd never seen.

"That's stupid! Who made it so that people with money could just get richer for doing nothing?"

Hmm...

And speaking of which, I had to call OUR broker yesterday to finish up the whole Roth IRA fiasco with Impus Major and it took 20 minutes to get through because everyone's panicking. Once we'd cleared up Impus Major's stuff, he asked, "So, I notice you have an account with us. Is there anything you wanted to do?"
"Nope. I'm only 52. Yeah, I've lost about 10% of my retirement fund this week, but it'll come back. I'm not worried."

He was appalled at my cavalier attitude. But take a look at 1929 vs. 1942. 13 years is an eternity for the stock market to recover...

Both of you have a point. The long term stock operations are mostly fine - they are the way of investing money into the companies without resorting to taking credits.

Short-term stock speculation when the money transferred is not productive in any way, on the other hand, is a blight on the face of the market and a significant veiled harm to economy...

Well, playing Devil's Advocate, my mother-in-law was widowed unexpectedly at 63 and Social Security doesn't even begin to touch her bills living alone in the Bay Area. So she's entirely...

Well, the issue here probably...

What?! I canceled that bombardment!

Oh, wait, that's Fritzy...

Well, the main issue was that it wasn't showing in search and instead of being in Pathfinder downloads, it is in Community Use / Package (and even then easy to overlook).

I think it says a lot about my family that Autocorrect made me text, "Taking Impus Minor drinking. Back by 2," and neither GothBard nor Impus Major batted an eye.

The fact that it's not even on Impus Major's Instagram nor Discord really says something...


I'm really curious, now, what the original was.

Similar thing happened between my wife and I recently. She later explained that she really had no idea what I was texting her most of the day, but figured any questions would sort themselves out, later.


So.

Or move to the elemental plane of fire, I don't know.


But fire elementals aren't even immune to the common cold!

Sure!

Elemental Subtype

It wrote:

An elemental is a being composed entirely from one of the four classical elements: air, earth, fire, or water.

An elemental has the following features.

Immunity to bleed, paralysis, poison, sleep effects, and stunning.

Not subject to critical hits or flanking. Does not take additional damage from precision-based attacks, such as sneak attack.

Proficient with natural weapons only, unless generally humanoid in form, in which case proficient with all simple weapons and any weapons mentioned in its entry.

Proficient with whatever type of armor (light, medium, or heavy) it is described as wearing, as well as all lighter types. Elementals not indicated as wearing armor are not proficient with armor. Elementals are proficient with shields if they are proficient with any form of armor.

Elementals do not breathe, eat, or sleep.

Fire elemental

Has the burn special feature, but otherwise uses outsider and elemental traits.

Immunity to fire, due to the subtype; speaking of...

Fire subtype

It wrote:

Fire Subtype

A creature with the fire subtype has immunity to fire and vulnerability to cold.

Outsider

It wrote:

Outsider

An outsider is at least partially composed of the essence (but not necessarily the material) of some plane other than the Material Plane. Some creatures start out as some other type and become outsiders when they attain a higher (or lower) state of spiritual existence.

An outsider has the following features.

d10 Hit Dice.
Base attack bonus equal to total Hit Dice (fast progression).
Two good saving throws, usually Reflex and Will.
Skill points equal to 6 + Int modifier (minimum 1) per Hit Die. The following are class skills for outsiders: Bluff, Craft, Knowledge (planes), Perception, Sense Motive, and Stealth. Due to their varied nature, outsiders also receive 4 additional class skills determined by the creature’s theme.

Traits: An outsider possesses the following traits (unless otherwise noted in a creature’s entry).

Darkvision 60 feet.

Unlike most living creatures, an outsider does not have a dual nature—its soul and body form one unit. When an outsider is slain, no soul is set loose. Spells that restore souls to their bodies, such as raise dead, reincarnate, and resurrection, don’t work on an outsider. It takes a different magical effect, such as limited wish, wish, miracle, or true resurrection to restore it to life. An outsider with the native subtype can be raised, reincarnated, or resurrected just as other living creatures can be.

Proficient with all simple and martial weapons and any weapons mentioned in its entry.

Proficient with whatever type of armor (light, medium, or heavy) it is described as wearing, as well as all lighter types. Outsiders not indicated as wearing armor are not proficient with armor. Outsiders are proficient with shields if they are proficient with any form of armor.

Outsiders breathe, but do not need to eat or sleep (although they can do so if they wish). Native outsiders breathe, eat, and sleep.

So, no immunity to any disease.

Afflictions include diseases and require fortitude saves!

Hence!

That said, this can all be easily proven - I even did so earlier.

After all, as it said in the Fire subtype:

Alas!

(Requisite follow-up joke about the most common of colds here.)


(Though if we're going homebrew, this one suggests it is inhaled and as elementals don't breathe, that's that.)

Hoo, boy. Looks like some poor kid at Target is losing his job soon.

So, this guy was slow, and just not very good. I figured he was a trainee, so whatever.

But they have a promo going on: Spend $100 or more and get a $5 gift card.

He saw that my total was over $100, grabbed a $5 gift card... and rung it up!!! (I didn't notice until I was entering the transaction into Quicken.)

So, for me, $5 just isn't worth raising a big stink over. I'll mention it next time I'm there, and they'll either fix it or they won't. But the idea that this poor kid is charging every customer who comes through $5 for their "free" gift card isn't going to go unnoticed (I noticed it), and people a lot less mellow than me are going to get a lot more upset over it.

I think my computer may have just died.

Edit: okay good news. Apparently, this "scanning and repairing drive" thing is not an uncommon thing to pop up for unknown reasons, usually after an improper shutdown, which admittedly my laptop gets on occasion due to overheating.

I just need to get it to boot into safe mode, shut down properly, then start up and all should be well.

...okay or maybe not. I cant get it to let me actually pick to boot in safe mode.

You're effectively fine then. Or at least as fine as a routinely overheating laptop can be.

Well, it still keeps shutting off or crashing or whatever in the middle of the scan it insists on running, so I can't actually use the machine.

It's trying again right now. If I can't get it to run thru successfully today, I'm going to try clearing out what dust and junk I can, and if that fails I'm out of options.

Woooooo! Managed to hit the 1-second window (why so quick??) to skip the checks entirely, which successfully brought me to the normal login screen. Shut down normally from there. Hopefully that does the trick, unfortunately don't have time for further testing as I gotta run.

I think one of the reasons people mistrust government so much is that every well-intentioned law turns into a scam.

So, we had a LOT of 16- and 17-year-olds dying in car crashes in California. "Hey! Let's make driving restrictions really strict for them! They have to take a certified class from a licensed instructor to get a permit!"

Cue $1000 classes and every private lot closing its doors to learners because it's more profitable to rent the lot to "licensed instructors".

So, I want to teach Impus Minor to drive a stick because it lets him drive virtually any road-legal vehicle in the world without a lot of training.

But:
(1) None of the licensed instructors teach stick.
(2) There are no longer any vacant lots I can teach him in.

Grr....

I got Black Desert Online for free on Steam recently... I considered installing it and giving it a try, just to see... Until I read that it includes non-consensual PvP - that is, others can attack you even if you turned PvP flag off, they just get penalties for doing this.

Nope. Pass. I am not wasting HD space for playing to level 35-40 (when the PvP starts). Maybe in the unforeseeable future when I get better computer where it would go smoother and I wouldn't have to clean space for a game just to delete it soon after...

I checked out a couple of 5th edition adventures this weekend (Curse of Strahd and Undermountain (but called something different).

Shadow Haunted is a background for peeps from Nidal.
