The problem with MLB is that there are so many prospects that are close to ready since no one goes straight to the pros like in basketball and football, and since they are the youngest, they get drafted in bulk. So it becomes a "sort by Baseball America Top 100 and take the next player listed" draft. And of course, with a few exceptions, you get two people arguing over which guy is better, both of whom they have never seen play or have any legitimate stats to go off of, using a short blurb they read in a Keith Law article 2 years ago to make their argument.

I think a dynasty draft where we eliminate all of that could be really fun.

What's the world coming to when a few white gentlemen can't go for a ride in their domestically produced truck without being festooned with bullets by the constabulary.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, & Beertalk

18 y/o sex slave - 18 pts
library/study with every book ever published - 4 pts
full kitchen etc - 6 pts
big screen tv with all cable packages - 7 pts

35 pts, gladly will spend 10 years there and ship the $5 million afterwards

would also take the $10 mil and sub the big screen tv out for the satellite radio i guess

Take the extra 5 points.

Automatically taking the girl, so leaves us with 17 points.

Full kitchen seems best value, leaving us 11 points.

From there, would probably take workout room, video games, and medical care.

If I have enough room to do body resistance workouts, I would probably trade the workout room in for hygiene products and sunlight.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, & Beertalk

feels like 18-year-old's personality is a huge part of the equation if you're expending your points on her rather than internet (and its options for human communication)

The rules completely restrict internet's value. It basically takes away all video functionality so you're left with text or image based internet browsing.

Assume average 18-year old sex slave personality. Docile, unlikely to offer much in the way of discussion.

Another key question: do we get a new 18 year old every year? Or are we banging some 28 year old at the end of this?

That's important for common law marriage ramifications as well. She could be entitled to half the bounty.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, & Beertalk

girl + greenhouse + tv + (skylight + kitchen or fast food + library) seems like a strong play.

nutshot's is v. strong too: you don't get to smoke a bunch of weed but get kitchen + library instead of one or the other in exchange

eta: this really is a great/interesting/pretty deep hypothetical

Full Kitchen - 6
TV - 7
Library - 4
Workout Room - 5
Kitten or Puppy - 6
Skylight - 2
==================
30 points, ship the $10 million


Alternate is taking out the Workout Room & Skylight and adding Garden, Medical, Hygiene products/jacuzzi bathtub.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, & Beertalk

do you have to buy the hygeine products or does the shower come with basic shampoo? if you buy internet do you also have to get the comp? does the phone get internet? if you dont buy medical care does that mean you cant get treated if something is wrong? does access to the stock market allow you to get and read about companies (and is it real time) and can you trade without internet and phone purchases?

I would take:
Kitchen (6)
TV (7)
Cell phone (3)
Stock Market-assuming I can actually make trades and get data in real time which seems reasonable (7)
All Movies and TV Shows (4)
Library (4)
Garden (2)
Satellite Radio (2)

This sounds like an awesome life. $5 million for my life now minus interaction with friends and a doctor (I assume I can get any prescriptions I request myself just have no consultation).

I understood it as the girl will have sex with you and thats it. If you get all the other interaction then I would need to know about personality, but would likely take the girl.

Everyone taking the girl is going to wish they spent a point on the gun after a year.

Sunlight is a steal. You would go crazy after a year or so of no natural light.

Girl seems way overvalued. Workout room seems solid value given all it includes.
