Yeah. No worse than what the U.S has done so don’t sound so butthurt about it, in fact, the U.S gave amnesty to a fair few of these scientists that did these tests so you have no moral ground to be butthurt about anything.

Darkfang agrees: USA government sets behavioural standard.

Besides that, this thread is horrible. I’m sorry guys, but it’s mind bottling bad. I’m not expecting retsamerol standards here but jesusfuck. Unless this is some weird experiment to prove that tyrant forum goers feel at ease spouting their little thought-out opinions without being burdened by any sense of modesty in which case it’s a great succes!

While I agree that this might be a little less mentally stimulating than the average youtube comment section, I think Pats is doing us all a favor by keeping all these people mostly contained in one thread.

If this thread gets locked, I think a lot of you would fit in with the off topic forum crowd.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / New Content After Apocalypse?

I think most of us would agree that any new content should probably be made by pretty much the same people who worked on the Apoc pack. That was the best thing to happen to the game in a very, VERY long time. Those people clearly had a fantastic grasp of the game and are capable of maintaining balance while remaining creative.

Judging by the logs, maybe it should be a little more exclusive to prevent the daily trolling being done by a few people who didn’t want the pack to be released on time for whatever weird reason.

My argument is that i see friends of mine f-ing up their lives because of weed. They drop out of school, skip classes, and all because they say “it’s not bad for me”. I see it as a problem. I have 2 friends that aren’t fun anymore. They don’t want to play soccer with me anymore. They just get high. People dont just use a little. They get high off their asses

edit: i mean it when i say this. True story. Also i meant fail out of school, not drop out

While that explains your personal decision to not smoke, it doesn’t really answer any of the points people have made to you. All those things that Sigha named could ruin the lives of people and families as well. Do you think that all of that should all be banned for the same reason?

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Controversial Stuff

Pats, it seems an awful lot like you don’t really have a reason for supporting a ban on weed. If I’m understanding your posts right (and correct me if any of this is out of context), your argument for its ban is that it’s unhealthy and/or unnecessary. When given examples of other unnecessary substances and activities that are unhealthy and non-banned, your response is that those substances and activities are not restricted.

In short, your argument for supporting a ban on weed is that it’s banned. Can you see how that’s kinda circular?

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Controversial Stuff

I’m of the opinion that all drugs should be decriminalized at the very least and completely legalized ideally. In general (although with a few exceptions that I’m sure some of you could come up with), I don’t agree with laws that protect people from themselves.

I do think that there should be more studies (agenda-less if that’s possible), so people like Jose and Pats can learn and debate the actual effects of drugs on the body without deceptively vague generalized statements, and so that people could have the opportunity to be educated as to the effect of the substance(s) they use. That being said, I think it should be everyone’s individual decisions to make themselves happier, stupider, more creative, or lazier as long as they’re not operating heavy machinery or otherwise endangering other people in a similar fashion.

TL;DR: Do what you want as long as you don’t drive your car at me.

I just looked it up to be sure (it re-linked me to controversy on wikipedia), and it confirmed that I still disagree with you. I think the survey was handled well and is legitimate. My gratitude for LDV’s work on this remains.

Will any of your advice benefit anyone with children/wanting children?

Hello again, Shieru. The answer to your question is yes. I won’t name every success story for obvious reasons, but a few include:

Caad: Currently seeing rehabilitation through the penal system, which will help him to come out of the system as a better parent.

MSUSpa: His offspring is now wearing colors proper to its gender, which helps it to identify with its hormones and chromosomes.

Ralkkdillon: She has more cats now.

ladolcevita: Named her first three children John, one of which was a male.

Pats133: No longer balding due to the stress of naming a child.

These are just five random success stories. Looking through this thread alone, I’m sure you can find more, and I hope to help even more in the near future! I’m grateful that I can use the gift of my encyclopedic parenting knowledge to help the Tyrant community and their previously neglected children.

Originally posted by thror13:

Hello Nirav, and everybody else. Haven’t posted since around the time i quit. Haven’t even read the forums until today, and i was quite happy about that….. until now.

Soo, i got here for other reasons, but its time for me to ask a very critical question from know-it-all niVar!
Btw, i hope this hasn’t already been asked:

“What is the optimal number of children? How do you choose and why?”
(note, that i want a complete list of advantages and disadvantages of every possible number between 0 and 8 children)

Hello Thror, and welcome back to Tyrant. Generally speaking, I try to put about as much effort into my answers as people do in their questions, so I’ll keep your answer as short as I can while also trying to answer comprehensively.

Number of Children:

1) Advantage: More money for self (selves if your spouse hasn’t left you yet).
Disadvantage: Child more likely to become a serial killer

2) Advantage: 1v1 rivalry will help both become strong and individualistic.
Disadvantage: Statistics show that each parent will choose one to be their favorite, leading to divorce and possibly murder.

3) Advantage: Ability to form a small and safe pyramid.
Disadvantage: In a heated argument, two will inevitably gang up on one, leading to severe injury. Also, middle child will show psychopathic tendencies unless you have a pet dog or fish (note: do NOT get cat(s) if you have 3).

4) Advantage: None.
Disadvantages: Everything. Four is seriously the absolute worst number of children you can have. Avoid this at all costs and adopt a fifth if you have to (if you become sexually incompetent or barren after the fourth).

5) Advantage: It has been scientifically proven that by the fifth child, you perfect parenting. In fact, 9/10 scientists are the fifth child. The tenth is a scientologist who misunderstood the survey.
Disadvantage: The third child will have the lowest level of intelligence of any child in any of the scenarios detailed throughout this list. Keep a close eye and protect it from electricity, water, and non-edible batteries.

6) Advantage: It begins to become acceptable to forget their names. Also, you can have them hold hands and encircle you when you go into public with them, so that you don’t have to worry about losing them at a department store or carnival.
Disadvantage: 6v1 numbers advantage means that they’ll be able to slap you around when the youngest is at age 4.

7) Advantage: Large number and odd number means they will be able to hold forums to make important decisions, allowing you to watch more television. Also, you can nickname each after the seven dwarfs of Snow White. All of the other advantages from above apply to this, making it the optimal number of children you can have.
Disadvantage: None, this is perfect; even if they try to gang up on you, one is likely to take your side, which puts things back in your favor.

8) Advantage: You can attach two to each of your limbs, making yourself into a voltron-type force that allows you to fight the powers of evil.
Disadvantage: Biologically, they will have decreased durability and hair. Think Samuel L Jackson in Unbreakable times eight. This is due to an embryological genetic anomaly. You don’t have to trust me, trust scientific research.

In short, stick with seven. If, by freak chance, the seventh comes with a twin, I recommend that you get a ninth, since that would be the next best thing either way. Good luck in your journey of parenthood, Thror. You may not need it as much as I think you do, so you could be a fantastic parent!

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / That feeling ...

I disagree with Yeasy. Apocalypse pack is a fantastic way to get old (and some newer) players back into the game with competitive decks.

Someone should start a referendum thread asking if people like or dislike the pack.

Originally posted by Merck Manual:
Theobromine and caffeine competitively inhibit cellular adenosine receptors, resulting in CNS stimulation, diuresis, and tachycardia. Methylxanthines also increase intracellular calcium levels by increasing cellular calcium entry and inhibiting intracellular sequestration of calcium by the sarcoplasmic reticulum of striated muscle. The net effect is increased strength and contractility of skeletal and cardiac muscle. Methylxanthines may also compete for benzodiazepine receptors within the CNS and inhibit phosphodiesterase, resulting in increased cyclic AMP levels. Methylxanthines may also increase circulating levels of epinephrine and norepinephrine.

Hmmm… that didn’t really help. It can cause arrhythmias and CNS dysfunction, which is bad.

Thanks for taking the time to do this, Rets. This will hopefully satisfy the medophiles who have been sending a constant stream of PMs to me requesting more details.

Topic: Tyrant: General Tyrant Discussion / Thank You SeanDougherty86

Tasha, while I agree that the devs should probably punish every single person who exploited the multiple legend thing at any point in the past with a ban, I’m not sure what that has to do with this thread.

A fair number of people (including SeanDougherty86) spent copious amounts of time making this pack (and dealing with a few unsavory characters who tried to impede its progress). As I understand it, anyone who volunteered and was willing to put in the work was encouraged to join the players who were working on the pack, whether they cheated, exploited bugs, or whatever else. No one was chosen, and no one was rewarded. The history and reputation of players in the game, in my opinion, should be held separately from the gratitude they are receiving for working on this the pack, which was practically extracurricular in nature.

Originally posted by Sharigon64:

is it good to spoil your child

Great question, Shar!

A spoiled child is much like spoiled food. It is rotten, is the result of you leaving it out in the sun too long, and will probably end up killing you (both metaphorically and literally).

As an anecdotal side-note, the late emperor Genghis Khan, known historically to have eaten children in his attempts to regain his youth (which has been proven to not work, by the way), rejected spoiled children from his cannibalistic diet due to the risk they posed on his digestive system. Even back then, barbaric medical practitioners/healers/witch doctors knew that the contents of a spoiled child entering an otherwise healthy adult’s blood stream would cause sepsis, diarrhea, severe heartburn, and AIDS.

With all that cleared up, recommended ways to prevent a child from becoming spoiled are by keeping it in room temperature when it is dormant, training it to use the restroom properly, keeping it somewhat active for purposes that benefit you, and continuously finding ways to stimulate its mind with mathematics.

If you understand all this and are able to do all of that, you could be a good parent as soon as tomorrow! Good luck in parenthood, and if you ever have any other inquiries, you know where to ask.

How toxic is chocolate to babies?

I did you the liberty of making your statement into a question fitting this thread. In the future, please save me some time by doing this yourself.

I apologize to both you and Bryan for not properly explaining the effects of cocoa toxin on a baby.

Since a baby isn’t actually a dog (which apparently needs to be stated), the effect isn’t exactly the same in a baby as it would be in a dog. Without getting into the tedious pathophysiological details, exposure to cocoa toxin in babies will almost always negatively affect production of a subset of thyroid hormone and androgen. While the baby will typically not experience dwarfism, it will unfortunately suffer from stunted brain development and decreased or absent gonadal presence in males (females are not as strongly affected, amazingly enough).

I hope this clarified things for both of you!
