Disinformation? Look at the residency rankings, it says I've been a resident longer than you have... ;)

my firm just let go one of my few remaining friends at my job immediately after tax season because we're losing money. we're losing money because we have 5 partners, like 3 managers, and only 3 real staff. but that's not my business I guess. one of the partners is a douche and pretty much everyone hates him but he's tenured or whatever because he's a partner. companies really do not care about their employees at all. I'm now the most experienced staff and I've only been here less than 2 years. I'm going to have to absorb all his work this year. We also hired a new staff who was our intern so someone's going to have to train her on all the intricacies of doing an audit. the only other staff who does audits hates doing them and specifically told the partners that so this is going to be a really shltty year

I hope you're able to find a better job soon Van, that's a sad situation to be put into.

Yes! We now have our first nanosatellite in space (launched alongside Sri Lanka's first CubeSat as part of Cygnus NG-11).

Another Nepali team is working on a CubeSat to be launched in 2020.

I hope I live long enough to see human colonization of Mars :)

If I were to run the occassional discord-based DnD (or other tabletop) game, would anyone be interested in participating? It wouldn't necessarily be consistent, so I was thinking I'd run Monster of the Week, which is a super easy game to pick-up and learn and can be run in fairly quick sessions.

Just to note, my concept at the moment would be something very Buffy the Vampire Slayer-esque: high school students in a small town fighting various monsters and cryptids. Monster of the Week is a game very heavily focused on improv and roleplay over combat, with investigating the monster and discovering clues about it a critical component. The GM (or Keeper) is way less of a world-builder than in a lot of other games, because the intention is that the players help define the world: the Keeper lays out the map but leaves blanks the players can fill. For example, if the players are deciding where to face the monster for the final showdown, they might decide that the best way of handling it is to corner it in a synagogue because it turns out that it is weakened by holy symbols that existed when it was "born" and it is older than Christianity. So the players say "Oh, I know! The old synagogue on Elm St. which was abandoned when the new one was built five years ago!" That synagogue is a player invention filled by the need of the story. Players can also create NPCs and whatnot based on what their characters would know. So instead of a player asking "is there a pharmacist in town?" they might say "Johnny actually knows the pharmacist, Mr. Brown, because that's where Johnny goes to pick up his lithium prescription". It's a neat system, very fluid.

Guys, what do you think is better as a specific name: argenaica or argusica or argensis or just argus?

Athara Magarat wrote:Guys, what do you think is better as a specific name: argenaica or argusica or argensis or just argus?

Argenaica.

Athara Magarat wrote:Guys, what do you think is better as a specific name: argenaica or argusica or argensis or just argus?

Argus. The others all look like either diseases or medications or something.

"My homeopath says that if I start taking argenaica supplements It'll really help with the argensis in my feet, plus I'll have more energy!"

Cool.
