Good old politics. Why be completely accurate when you can instead win over easily led voters?

On films and the “do it or you die” threat

Action films will often have a “do it or you die” threat, normally involving the notionally good character having to threaten one of the baddies. The baddie fairly reliably then decides that they’re not afraid to die.

What happens next is normally that the good character had a moment of revert before killing the person anyway. They then struggle to do whatever it was by themselves, just at the last minute.

This seems pointless. There is a much more obvious and useful route that could be tried in these situations first:

Why do the good characters not start with major wounds to extremities (shots to legs, cutting off fingers, etc)?

A couple of quick sketches for Sketch daily - Mary Poppins during lunch yesterday, and ‘baby’ me, playing Warhammer with IBBoard. Or rather, not playing.

Yes, the “I’ll play at the weekend… [weekend arrives] … I’m going to play with my friends” situations.

Someone was selling these Necromunda House Escher miniatures while I was picking up Space Hulk the other day, so I bought them. I’ll agree with my friend when he said these are some of the best female miniatures Games Workshop have made.
Here’s a link to where you can read more about House Escher (you should also read about the other Hive Gangs as well since the whole Necromunda thing is pretty cool), since GW have stopped doing things like this and a lot of people probably won’t know about them.
WE KNOW
AND WE ARE OUT THERE


If I had a Necromunda gang, it’d probably be Escher. They’re cool, kick-arse, and not as boring or niche as the other gangs.
Unfortunately, I’ve got no-one to play with, loads of other models to paint, and the prices people want on eBay can be crazy :\

No offence, but…

beautifulfic:

Tagging “no offence” onto the end of a comment isn’t some standard disclaimer that magically means your words won’t hurt someone.

By saying “no offence” you’re not really saying “I mean this in a nice way!”

You’re saying “I can’t be bothered to construct what I said in a way that will spare your feelings.”

And, more to the point, you’re implying that any offence taken is the fault of the recipient. Because we all know that someone who is hurt by criticism is just “too sensitive” right?
