Re: Draft Bag- Game Thread

Alright, my British Monarch, bit of a Ron Swanson pick here because I'm not a fan of the monarchy and think the world would be a better place without its imperialist conquests. This guy got down with the peasants until his queen pegged him dead:

Edward II (1307-1327)
Quote:
The first English King to be forced to abdicate, Edward’s reign was defined by incompetence. An unconventional character who by many accounts preferred romping around with lusty peasant folk to actually doing any governing, he is best-known for his defeat by Robert the Bruce of Scotland at the battle of Bannockburn in 1314. After he and a male favourite alienated his queen, Isabella of France, she invaded England with her own favourite, the Baron Roger Mortimer, and put Edward’s 14 year old son Edward III on the throne. He is presumed to have been executed at Berkley castle in 1327, though the rumour that this was carried out by inserting a red-hot poker into his anus is likely a myth.
Love an incompetent monarch

Re: Draft Bag- Game Thread

I'll take the writing device that was basically torture in schools, chalk blackboard and erasers. Apropos of the learning experience itself where teachers etc. try to methodically beat free will or any sense of individuality out of you, nothing is more symbolic of this than chalk. Whether chalk was used as a tool against us or we began to hate it with the destruction of childhood, who can say, but 94% of adults can't even visualize a pair of erasers being rubbed together without encountering some sort of trauma.


Todays methods are more insidious, for better or worse, but chalk will always be symbolic of what is really going on.


Also in a pinch you can use chalk for deadlifting, improvise an eraser as a shoe, or carry a blackboard around as an umbrella.

Oh you can also graffiti on sidewalks to play hopscotch or if you were dying you could write an obscure clue which would become the plot to a movie.

Re: Draft Bag- Game Thread

the last console video game i played was like around 2000. i think it was a play station game. and there were aliens, and it was like a resource management game, but you had a team of commandos that would go on missions to fight the aliens

and iirc producing alien tanks and selling them was the most efficient way to make money

For non-western dish I’ll take Doner Kebab, a Turkish vertical rotisserie meat shaved off when ordered.

Re: Draft Bag- Game Thread

For biggest scam I’ll take Televangelists

They take what little money many poor people and people on fixed incomes have, people who believe in God and want to give a good portion of what little they have to help the church. But televangelists aren’t doing anything but buying mansions and jets and plastic surgery with that money. And it’s an especially bad scam because it lasts for years or decades with their marks rather than a one time thing, and the marks never even know it’s a scam so never stop falling for it.

Re: Draft Bag- Game Thread

For Birth Prevention I’ll take Rupert Murdoch who started Fox News, the New York Post and other outlets responsible for brainwashing 30%-40% of the population.

Ronald Reagan credited the Post with getting him elected.

Over 600,000 Americans have died from the pandemic due to the lies on Fox News every day for the past 1.5 years. Even now as we have vaccines and could prevent almost every death, they are telling people not to get vaccinated.

So many bad things have come from these “news” sources over the past decades.

And it’s not just in the US. Murdoch has his “news” sites in countries around the world.
