Very cool!!!

Hey this is my hometown! Ranked the 14th coldest city in the U.S. by the way!

Supporter12 months ago

Man, I am so sorry for you. That cold? Bad deal. 

Supporter12 months ago

Nah, makes us tough! Puts hair on your chest and all that. Lol. 

Supporter12 months ago

I think the cold makes people delusional. They go to some other cold place, that's just a little less cold, and they think it's warm. They walk around in 30 degree weather in shorts and a t shirt. That's not tough that is delusional. 

I hope you understand I'm mostly joking and not seriously calling you delusional.

Nothing wrong with walking around in shorts in that temperature. We’ve all done it before.

Mostly why I posted/shared it haha

Do you prefer being hot or cold?

Supporter12 months ago

I don’t mind the cold. I strongly dislike being hot. I would prefer it to be between 50-60 but I’d take 0 over 95 most days. 

Supporter12 months ago

Oh boy. We are opposites. I would rather have it 90+ year round than 4 months below 50 degrees. I despise being cold.

Supporter12 months ago

I just don’t like being sweaty. The heat is so oppressive to me. 

Supporter12 months ago

;-) and the cold is so paralyzing to me.

Great story. This gives me a little more admiration for chip theory games. 

Supporter12 months ago

I’ve never actually checked out any of their games. I’ll have to do so now. 

Supporter12 months ago

Their best regarded one seems to be Too Many Bones (3rd Edition). That is the only one I have much interest in. But their barrier to entry is high enough I'll probably never get into their games. 

Supporter12 months ago

Oh cool, I’m familiar with Too Many Bones. I agree it looks like a great game but it does seem hard to get into it. 

Supporter12 months ago

And it was just a week ago when I watched an overview of Cloudspire too haha. I've yet to play any of their games though

It'd be great to see stuff like this happening all across the U.S.

Any time there is positive interaction between government and population that’s a good thing. People need to come together and remember what makes this country great. Not spread divisive and toxic behaviors and attempt to “Make” America great. 

Supporter12 months ago

"making America great again" MUST come from a change in the mentality of its citizens. It is NOT something that can be leglisated for or against. This is true of every nation and people. That is why it is so encouraging to see stories like this that encourage people to behave like decent human beings. 

If this comment is to politically charged I am happy to remove it. Stirring a political pot is not my intention nor desire. 

Supporter12 months ago

No worries. Of course, there will need to be some sort of stance/rules on posts or comments of political nature in the future, but we don't have one yet. And the nature of the link I shared makes political opinions more appropriate. I just really liked the steps they are taking to nurture healthy relationship between the police and the community and wanted to share it with everyone!

Supporter12 months ago

No doubt. I also don’t want to stir up anything. 

Supporter12 months ago

Yes. I haven't played any of their games. But their hero strong stance to a particular kind of components sorta turns me off. For instance, in cloudspire their age neoprene components that need to be shuffled. How do you shuffle neoprene? Wouldn't it have been better to go with something more traditional? 

Supporter12 months ago

Have you heard of this before Brian? (/u/Skurvy5)

Supporter12 months ago

No, I hadn’t heard this. And it’s really quite cool! I don’t get out much apparently.
