I always wondered if the dragon was aware of what he/she was guarding or if it was some cliche "the wizard/King/someone forced this dragon to guard their fortune" type of deal. Although it would be funny in a way to watch people panic while a massive dragon tried to grocery shop.
I think it's more to do with the dragon being a symbol of greed. It hoards the treasure but doesn't spend it because it just wants to keep it all for itself for the sake of it (like how the super rich hoard their wealth in tax havens rather than spend or donate it.)
Do you know the problem of being super rich? You acquire more money than you can spend even if you wanted to your wealth grows automatically. That way you get richer just by being rich. Thanks to compound interests.
I've seen an interview with a financial expert and ex stockbroker. That's what he said.
There is also the miracle of compound interest:
“Money bearing compound interest increases at first slowly. But, the rate of increase being continually accelerated, it becomes in some time so rapid, as to mock all the powers of the imagination. – One penny, put out at our Saviour’s birth to 5 per cent, compound interest, would, before this time, have increased to a greater sum, than would be contained in a hundred and fifty millions of earths, all solid gold. But if put out to simple interest, it would, in the same time, have amounted to no more than seven shillings and four pence half-penny.”
Aspirin and wine. Now.
Gordon Ramsay: I like him, especially when he cusses.
Toast: the flames... so hot... So beautiful.
Anarchism: I'm not too well versed in it, but I have some friends who are anarchists (actual anarchists not the liberal straw man edgy anarchists) and what I've heard of it is pretty chill. I have some difficulty with understanding the difference between anarchism proper and the communist stateless, moneyless, and classless society. I'm mainly chalking that down to gaps in my knowledge, but given I have no problem with the latter, I find myself pretty okay with the former.
Merc: definitely stinks. I'd imagine of sweat, cigars, seminal fluid, and shame — but that's speculation.
Asprin for my headache, hold the wine and I'll hold the whining.
I don't like Gordon Ramsay, personally. I get his appeal, but I've never really been a fan of "Anger Humor". It makes me more uncomfortable than anything to watch him screaming at people, and while I know he doesn't do it to kids in those shows I'm also not a big fan of cooking shows in general so the appeal is lost. My preferred form of comedy is a deep irrationality formed in response to the clownish world we inhabit.
I've burnt many things, but I'm an expert at toast tyvm.
I remain doubtful of Anarchism purely because I fail to see how it'd defend itself from Active Measures or foreign aggression. I think a lot of people see Iraq or Afghanistan and sort of assume that because guerrilla movements were (somewhat) effective at keeping control from cementing itself there, Anarchism could just do the same in whatever country it sprouted up in (Or at least, 90% of the responses I've heard entail something to that effect) but I'm convinced they're missing the circumstances of those wars for an idealized view of it having a general efficacy. My favorite responses are the ones that posit some kind of Military Industrial Complex being built solely through donations though lmao.
As for Governance, I'm sure it could work in the same way I'm sure Capitalism can be better than a soulless conglomeration of profit accumulating machinery. The problem is just a matter of it's robustness.
Last I heard Merc smelled of J-1A.
I'll have aspirin and warm orange soda.
Gordon Ramsay cooks good food and isn't as verbally brutal around children. But he will make you kill yourself over burnt toast.
I'd like to see anarchy in Arizona so I could take care of a few things. I'm just waiting for the system to collapse. The sooner, the better :D
Merc should go take a bath
Orange soda is good
I love Gordan Ramsay stuff, and he's actually a really good guy outside of his television persona. A lot of it is really just an act he puts on.
I don't eat toast
I flirt with anarchism and some people call me an anarchist. Anarchist literature is pretty nice to read through.
Don't know Merc well enough to know.
Tea Timb, you dirty little slüts
- ;B r e a d
- Merc's Dandruff
- Orange peel
- Lutefisk juices!
- Beef broth!
- Lemon tea
- Thin honey
- Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner
- The State of Minnesota
- Fully automated luxury gay space Communism
- If you got to choose the next President of the United States, who would you pick?
I'll have space bread and lemon tea.
Philly DA: Told truths about Mr. Cheeto-man
Minnesota: My home state, a wonderful place. If you say otherwise, don't be surprised to find a lutefisk tater tot hotdish on your front step.
FALGSC: Could it arrive any faster?
Next President: Me, jk. Ummm... AOC
Bread and tea, please.
Larry Krasner: Absolute badass. Would elect him President.
Minnesota: My adopted home! I hate the weather and sometimes wish I'd chosen to go somewhere outside the Midwest, but my school is affordable and my friends are great.
FALGSC: As soon as possible.
POTUS: Ilhan Omar or Chokwe Antar Lumumba.
I'll have ;B r e a d and honey.
I'll admit I've never heard of Larry Krasner until now, so I looked him up. He seems like a decent fellow. This country desperately needs better DAs so hopefully he keeps up the good work.
Minnesota is a very cold place. People from there have the whackiest of Midwestern accents which is pretty funny to me because I'm sometimes entertained by simple silly things don't question it because I don't question why anyone would willingly remain in a place where it seems to normally be as cold if not colder than the North Pole.
I'd like FALGSC, but idk if we're ever getting that now.
AOC or Nina Turner should definitely run in 2024.
I'll have bread and lemon tea.
Krasner: Haven't heard of him until now, but he seems like and cool and forward-thinking guy after reading about him.
Minnesota: Much too cold for me, but otherwise seems like a nice and pleasant state.
Fully automated luxury gay space Communism: Nice utopian ideal, but not practical right now.
Next President: In an ideal world, Elizabeth Warren.
Bread and Bread, hold the drink.
I don't know of Krasser, tbh.
I don't see the Rich, or China, enjoying an idea that would try to take away their power. And considering the rich in China own 90% of the world's Rare Earth Elements....
That's presuming Russia and China don't just blow up whatever resource extracting satellites you send up to keep your proto-space communism dependent on good old Chinese materials. https://www.sciencealert.com/us-accuses-russia-of-firing-anti-satellite-weapon-in-space
Who cares about Elections in a world as clownish as this lmao
I'll take the bread and lemon tea.
Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner: He's quite a progressive prosecutor with a good record on criminal justice reform.
The State of Minnesota: The state itself is an important electoral battleground, but I'm more so interested in the good work done in Minneapolis on the find of zoning reform that has been politically difficult in California.
Fully automated luxury gay space Communism: Until we're in a post-scarcity society, it's not happening.
POTUS: If I were to choose between one of the Democratic presidential primary candidates, it would likely be Michael Bennet. If I could choose anyone, then it would either be Ron Wyden or Ben Cardin due to their great work on healthcare and tax policy respectively.
