you are james madison.

you generally make very good arguments and are a pretty good player in games. much like madison, however, you were able to subvert the town undetected in Omnis Divisia. that was a very good game for scum and you turned us all into john adams.



CCKeane posted:

Yes, let's buzzfeed this thread up immediately.

you are martin van buren, an unconventional president who (may have) coined the phrase "ok" as part of his election campaign. he also kept two tiger cubs as pets while president.




god drat it..... i suddenly feel really sad.

you are theodore roosevelt, about to murder me with a brick.

Art is anything made with a creative purpose. I would consider everything from the Last Supper to the Wrapped Reichtag, from Citizen Kane to The Stanley Parable to be art.

Whether something is good art or not is a better question imho.

since when is art about ideas? i havent heard that one. what idea does the mona lisa disseminate

it obviously disseminates the truth of the holy grail, protected by leonardo da vinci and the priory of sion, against the sinister forces of opus dei. if one looks closely, one should be unable to uncover a series of clues that will lead them to the last supper, revealing jesus's secret relationship with mary magdeline, and the children that they bore.

it is all very fascinating.

My favorite painting is Ivan the Terrible and His Son Ivan on November 16, 1581 by Ilya Repin. For me, it is one of the most haunting paintings ever created.



I also like The Merry Family by Jan Steen. I know the message is intended to be negative, but that baby is so happy!

i had a similar problem in highschool when trying to get my creative writing teacher to explain what 'poetry' was. it seems to me that poetry is more about the positioning of the words than the words themselves. if you ramble on for a paragraph, its not a poem. but if you take that same paragraph and space it out into lines between 1-10 words in length, then its a poem.

maybe art is the same way, except instead of aranging words into lines, you have to put the item in a gallery, or put a frame around it. poof, art

You might enjoy the poems of e. e. cummings. He's a pretty non-conventional poet and his work often stretches the limitations of his medium. The way he plays with syntax and formatting can be very cool.

Take, for example, The Sky Was.

I heard that weasel words might be useful for scum. Some argue that it is one of the best ways to avoid detection because, in a sense, it prevents you from committing on an issue. In my experience, this fact often seems true. I believe that wishy-washy language might be helpful in some instances.

Tremendous Taste posted:

Voldemort Was Right

I've always wondered what Voldemort's endgame was if he had defeated Harry Potter. Based on his meddling in the West Country and the intrusion of Dementors into everyday life, he doesn't seem content with just ruling Magical!Britain. Does Lord Voldemort want to rule as a shadow government over the British Muggles, or is his goal to destroy the Statute of Secrecy and rule directly over both domains?

I would also ask if he's expansionist and whether the rest of the Magical World plans on doing anything about Magical Hitler, but we don't know much about the magical community outside Harry Potter's life.

Tremendous Taste posted:

I always assumed Voldemort was the world domination type

Yeah, but how he goes about it is important. Is he going to go for a shock and awe campaign, revealing himself in horrific fashion to stun the Muggles into submission, or does he have his followers subvert and infiltrate Muggle governments so as to avoid real resistance?

The guy never really struck me as subtle, so I assume the former. Attempting to secretly subvert foreign countries would probably fail when people start asking important questions, like why the Lincoln Memorial been replaced with Merlin sitting on a throne of skulls and weeping children.

I grew up in an area where Canadian and American coins got used indiscrimately. You would go to a restaurant and pay with ten US dollars and fifty cents in Canadian coins.

Eventually businesses got really upset and started putting signs up saying they would no longer accept Canadian coins. It was a very sad moment for me personally because I had to stop using coins with cool moose on them.

EXACT Science, whenever I see your username it reminds me of a line in the musical Next to Normal where the mother is having her prescription changed after a psychotic breakdown and tells the doctor, "[psychopharmacology's] not a very exact science, is it?" Then the chorus lists her medications (and the unintended side effects) to the tune of My Favorite Things.

This doesn't impact you in any way, but I always hum a little when you post.

Also if you guys love musical theatre and aren't homophobic (hopefully nobody in our lovely community!) you should listen to the Fun Home cast recording and focus on it because it's one of the best musicals to come out in a long time.

I haven't heard it, but I will definitely check it out! I love musical theatre and have the soundtrack of Chess on my tablet to listen to while working.

I just love those intense choruses.

Each game of chess means there's one less,
