I'm doing some digging through my university library resources looking for secondary sources, and I somehow managed to find a peer reviewed article about how mother nature is a man. I guess someone was under the impression that "mother nature" was something more than a common phrase, and was so against that premise that they wrote an entire properly-cited academic article about how that's incorrect. And then a whole panel of supposed experts on the subject read said article and decided it had a point. Then, it somehow found it's way into my university's database, and popped up while I was searching for articles on 15th century religious influence on fiction. Academia is weird.

I've got back into Battletech/Mechwarrior, via Steam, after a couple decades off. Forest is my favorite terrain, what with the cover and evasion bonus. Plus, who doesn't like absurd robot tanks?

4 hours ago: Areulder ceased to exist.

30 minutes earlier, one of my puppets found the last Areulder card that was found before the CTEing.

I wasn’t exactly thinking of D&D at the time, but now it sounds cool. Is homebrew allowed? If so, I am totally gonna play my Water-Genasi Symbiont

While there are numerous valid criticisms and analyses that can be performed under the auspices of gender theory, it does also sometimes seem to be a field that draws some... eccentric perspectives, shall we say.

When I was in grad school, we read a number of articles for a particular class related to the influence of identity and gender in our field. Most were quite solid, but one author in particular launched into a multi-page rant about how something represented the male ego in cogito ego sum, and how that ego was the source of all the problems we faced.

For those who don't know, the correct word is ergo - it's cogito ergo sum. The whole class rolled their eyes at that one.

Since we were discussing political signs a little while ago: I went on a pretty long trip all around my extended neighborhood earlier in order to enjoy the ~65 degree weather (that is a typical winter temperature here) and saw two Biden stickers on cars vs. one Trump yard sign. This area trends quite Republican so I found that ratio to be interesting. I noticed that neither of the cars were SUVs or trucks, just plain ol' sedans. My ballot has already been counted and I think that most of you can probably figure out who got my vote…

The Ascendant Hive is ranked 242nd in the world and 1st in Forest for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 50,487.6 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
