    Let's talk about something that Trump recently realized is complicated - healthcare policy. Currently, the US spends the most per capita on healthcare in the developed world and yet has some of the worst results. Some arguments suggest that capitalism does not work well with healthcare due to...

    Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

    I am going to be busy next year and won't have the ability to video game much. Did it stop me from pre-purchasing and pre-loading the **** out of this game? Absolutely not. Deus Ex: HR pushed my interests in bioethics and biotech to a whole new level, so I'm extremely excited for this game.

    Let's Go to Space

    Let's discuss space. I'm very involved in my university's undergraduate space organization, and I've had the pleasure of attending the most recent Space Symposium (annual huge space conference in Colorado) and have had conversations with a lot of space startups in the Bay Area. It's a super...

    Bioethics Thread - Animal Rights

    I think a bioethics thread exists somewhere, but it is not found in the first four pages and I could not find it through search, so new thread it is. So I'm interested in the discussion of animal rights. It isn't a topic that is directly linked to bioethics (although futurist ideas suggest a...

    Great American Train Trip

    Member-Moderator Interaction

    It's likely best that there is a place to discuss how interaction between members and moderators should occur that isn't just closed off to moderators. I have long admired Taleworlds for being a place where everyone is able to speak their mind, whether it is moderators calling users idiots or if...

    What do you do, Taleworlds?

    I'm kind of curious as to what occupation forumites have. I know there's some security guards, some military members, but I haven't the slightest clue about their experiences nor how they got to where they are. It would be fascinating to see what all of you do for a living. For a start, I'm...

    [Werewolf] To Kill a Kin, Traitor Victory!

    It was time to march. Onwards, towards Thermopylae marched the brave Spartan soldiers, commanded by King Leonidas. It was there that the Persians would be stopped, by an army of 300 Spartans and allied Greek troops. Among them were the travelers this tale describes, fifteen men and one woman who...

    Brave Spartan, it is time to defend against another Persian invasion. Xerxes I, anxious to conquer more land in the west, marched his troops through Thrace in an effort to seize all of the Greek city-states including those in the Peloponnese. Your king, Leonidas I, has called for you to report...

    Welcome to Balance of Power: 1815. Napoleon, the biggest threat to the European status quo, has finally been defeated.

    Werewolf is a fascinating game. The entire basis of the game is to draw conclusions from small links in human behavior, fabricating entire cases from marginal correlations that tie certain seemingly random human behaviors to alignment. Good werewolf players are separated from bad ones by two...
