So you've heard of Dungeons and Dragons (DnD) and wanted or even tried to get into it? But for some reason you couldn't? Too much math? Too many rule books? I'm here to help! But not by actually giving you a starting point with DnD. Actually, I want to tell you about all the other Pen and Paper (P&P) games that are out there that might be a better fit for you!
Boss Level, by Joe Carnahan, is not a good movie by a long shot. It's got bad CGI and the protagonist's – Roy's – narration runs completely counter to Show, Don't Tell. But it beautifully lays out the different ways we can learn and grow in life.
Ich hatte neulich das große Pech Wunderschön von und mit Karoline Herfurth zu sehen. Wie zu erwarten ist der Film lediglich daran interessiert progressiv zu wirken, während er tatsächlich zutiefst konservative Werte vermittelt.
This post is a response to this article posted on my old University's blog. All my philosophical education comes from the TV show The Good Place, so take it with a grain of salt.
The article is an attempt by the author to cope with her – what she perceives to be – immoral decision of getting a dog. She is mainly worried about the negative impact on the environment the dog will have. But she manages to rationalize throwing your hands up and saying “It's too hard” into not giving a fuck is morally good in the long run.
The post starts with a definition of progress: “[A]n advancement of any magnitude in any area of life that brings you closer to where you want to be”.
(So we're not talking about human well-being, science or culture.)
Instead of reflecting on my experience with progress, let's take the definition apart and analyse Catking's answers!
This is my blog where I want to talk about things that interest me. That includes, but is not limited to: tech, pen&paper, movies, video games, psychology, productivity,...
I'm no expert on any of these topics. And the goal is not to educate you, the reader. The goal is for me to reflect more deeply on the information and media I consume and for me to learn from writing this blog.
I hope that you do not just remain a reader, but become a writer yourself. To engage with the content you consume, the sources I cite or – and that would be the greatest honour – to engage with this blog. Reach me on Mastodon at @Optional@todon.nl
