Re: What did you do today.

The guy who did the Revolutions podcast (A+ military history geekery, can't recommend it enough) Mike Duncan wrote a book on Lafayette. I should give it a read one of these days. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hero_of_Two_Worlds:_The_Marquis_de_Lafayette_in_the_Age_of_Revolution I quite enjoyed it, ...

Re: What did you do today.

Lafayette managed to live through the French Revolution, quite an impressive feat given how many of his contemporaries didn't.

Re: What did you do today.

"rebel militia?" Those are Patriots I'll have you know! I should do up some Am Rev figs just so we can talk trash. I read up on the history and there was definitely a small Rebel force assisting the French. Lafayette really liked them. (Great work Prim, and sweet tanks Dave!) Lafayette? That rich k...

Re: What did you do today.

Having painted nothing since the end of April, I sat down yesterday and painted for most of the day. Today I did some varnishing and applied some flock. My first minis in months, some rebel militia for the American War of Independence. (A few days late for the actual day though, sorry). http://i.im...

Re: kicking the Tories up the arse

I wish I could find the Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal comic about how AI has basically automated the college undergraduate paper. It used to be we could tell when our students used translation software, because it made crazy mistakes no living Japanese student would make. They make particular, u...

Re: kicking the Tories up the arse

Chatbot for President! Scary how accurate that actually was. At least it can sum up and articulate things coherently, unlike the current candidates. The inevitable "hallucinations" and inaccuracies probably won't be more frequent or severe than the usual rate of political lying. I am so tired of wat...

Re: kicking the Tories up the arse

I get Prims logic. In my case, even though I've been here 20+ years, I still am in my heart-of-hearts a 'Muricahn. I think my attachment by virtue of being born and raised there and the friends and family that remain there still gets me to the (mail-in) polls. I'm not intimately familiar with the UK...

I should be there (no business trips in July! yay!)

@konrad if you're interested we could LUNAR!
Oooh! Cue "Blue Danube". But I think "Darkest Dungeon" is next on my dance card. And I did sort of throw down the Gauntlet for any and all to BANGARANG!
