Something's going on in Thailand?
I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

Political total stalemate, it's basically middle classes of Bangkok VS the government, who are billionaires themselves but are supported by the poor rural areas. Military coup not an impossible endgame but the military haven't really shown their hand yet.

Obviously human loss is tragic, but this is pretty painful. If it is real anyway.

Pretty portugaling stupid. Not the first time that's happened, and unfortunately won't be the last.

I wasn't suggesting it as consolation, I'm as distraught as you are :(

 :(

At least when people are killing each other in some war, it generally isn't a war I feel I should be involved in. It is someone else's dispute. But burning all these books I accept as a personal attack that demands REVENGE!

Well, given I'm currently moderately inebriated on mead, this seems wholly reasonable :P

Everytime someone sets a date that the world will end, it won't happen.
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.
