Why buy oven mitts when you’ve got blue jeans.
Phill DeFranco put a jumper in his video and I barely anticipated and avoided it, but my trust is violated and my heart rate is accelerated and I HATE JUMPERS WHY ARE THEY A THING
goddamn, son, no wonder everybody’s tryin’ to track you down
Story War is a simple party game where you draw a random Battlefield card and then roleplay different Warrior characters (using various Items as weapons/powers) and try to convince another player acting as a judge that your character could beat your opponent’s character in a fight.
We’re also working on an album of 25 songs that would set the tone for a battle in a specific location! This song is based on Frost Keep, and it sounds a lot like the score from Home Alone but in an alternate ending where Kevin ends up killing the burglars.
Until Friday you can get Story War on Amazon for just $20 using the discount code COOLSALE! Reblog this post and tell your friends! It makes a great Christmas present!
(PS: We’re still working on getting Amazon to ship Story War outside the US, but in the meantime anyone can still order Story War from DFTBA)

Maxton is a freakin’ prodigy, you guys.
The awesome snuck up on me.
One of the best feelings is knowing that you’re wanted. Knowing that someone wants to talk to you, wants to know how you’re doing, wants to se you. Whether they pick up the phone to send you a quick text or stop by your house to catch up, someone or something reminded them of you specifically. It just feels really nice to know that you’ve been on someone’s mind and that they care enough to let you know that.
These are very difficult questions to answer, but our minds are built for more than just empathy, and hatred and violence are also born out of structures that are meant for strengthening social bonds and creating healthy communities.
We evolved in small groups, kinda like little human herds, and these herds functioned best when there were tight connections within the herd. That means human brains are built to value in-group empathy over out-of-group empathy. It also means that we’re built to respect and follow authority figures if they are consistent in our lives. The herd needs structure and support, and that comes at a cost when interacting with other herds, especially when there was competition for resources that could mean the difference between your child living or dying.
Hatred is generally born in fear, fear of disruption of something someone cares about, whether that’s the purity of their country, their loyalty to a certain group of people, or a belief that the world is great as it is and it is being corrupted by others.
So the real question is, what is stronger, empathy or fear? Unfortunately, fear is, which is why we have to fight it not only in ourselves, but in the world,. We do this by making the world a more stable place where there is less to be afraid of. Also by turning off 24 hour news channels.
