Wannabe Philisophical Question of the Day:
Yay or nay: Would it be justified to jail and ultimately put to death one single, super-wholesome and innocent man in order to ensure 100 abhorrently guilty criminals are never able to taint the light of society's day?
To piggyback on that, as a part 1-B to the above's 1-A (if you will), would you condemn one bumbling -- sometimes very dumb but ultimately well-meaning goofball -- placing all of society's recent mishaps and hiccups wholly yet falsely upon him if it meant a shot at some kind of utopia?
Nothing's guaranteed, but all your sins -- his sins, her sins, their sins, red fish, blue fish -- *everything* was unloaded and placed at the feet of this fellow.
There's only a 10% chance of achieving said utopia. Otherwise, everything will bounce back upon everyone tenfold. Is it worth throwing this goofball under the proverbial bus? Annointing him the most high evil of the world upon which all wrongs and ills and all previous bad things are attributed?
Would you annoint this WREATH, falsely, at his feet?
And would this utopia really even be real if its false peace were hypocritically bought with the blood of the unworthy?
Yeah, in answer: Nay. Totally, nay.
Whatever the outcome, the world only becomes worse. You can place all those sins at his feet all you want - but in doing so, you've made a far graver one, which he will not be the bearer of. A far greater evil is born from this than is cast away.
I already dislike the idea of a utopia, but in my eyes, even if such 10% were 'successful', it would in fact be a mere dystopia under the veneer of being said utopia. Born of lies and not of truths, a world where the absolute ultimate evil has been embraced and selfishness reigns unhindered. Better that it burn, instead.
Question of the Day Redux:
You suddenly find yourself piloting a malfunctioning drone which just so happens to have enough explosives attached to its frame to blow up the frigging moon. (Smart)
For whatever reason, you're forced to either crash land said drone directly into your childhood home, killing your parents and sister in the process, or alternatively, into the church across from your house, killing approximately 52 devout worshipers, 3 priests and one seeing eye dog.
Besides dearly regretting your decision to turn your formerly cute and cuddly drone into a lethal, mobile mortar strike last Tuesday when you were bored... what do you do? Where do you crash it, your house or the church?
No deus ex machina por favor. This bad boy's going down and exploding at one of the two regardless of how many skill points you have in fly and/or use magic device.
I mean.... Think what you want of me, but in the end I'm saving my own first. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Both options suck, but if absolutely forced to one of the two, then yeah.
Anyway, the church, I would choose, because parents are the one who gave you life, while the church people can say whatever they want in order to get what they want, most likely the MOOLA, fam.
The church all the way.
This is not a QOTD
I have a question. This is the second time I asked it and the first time was my first time in GOG.
My question is... What is the weirdest legislation that you have had?
That's a good question. Probably making my national animal able to gain citizenship? I'm sure there has been weirder though
I will answer my own question. I have two. Following legislation in Kabenitohamajihaka there has been a series of riots between local cannibals and health food advocates. Following new legislation in Kabenitohamajihaka, children play Capture the Flag and Capture the Bigtopian General Staff at summer camps. None of these are the weirdest legislations out there but for the legislations I know I had these are the most weird.
Guess I'll go ahead and resume these.
Question of the Day: If you had to come face to face with any alien from science fiction, which would you pick?
I mean.... Probably, literally, anything but Xenomorph or the Thing. I don't think anything sounds as bad as running into those.
Maybe one of those more peaceful races from Stargate? Not too familiar with the show, though.
Welcome to the region! I'll leave out some of our famous Gaian Chocolate Bark for you and all our other new nations. (PS, there is even more for you in the Discord server)
If we're being specific, probably Spock or Yoda. If we're just talking about alien races, probably still a Vulcan or maybe one of those hot Twi'lek things from Star Wars
Ah shoot, why didn't I think of that? I'd much rather meet an Asgardian than a Twi'lek but I think I'd still probably rather meet a Vulcan
