Happy New Year everyone, I hope you had an enjoyable celebration of the death of 2016 the year of misery, maybe we can have a positive year ahead of us.

3 months in and I say the world is doomed..
The non-zero chance of nuclear war is extremely concerning. Even if that never happens, and I hope it never does, we still have to grapple with a lot of problems, such as population growth, pollution and climate change, resource scarcity, and increasing wealth inequality. I don't want us to be stuck in a scenario that looks like the movie Elysium, where billionaires live on their paradise space station and the rest of us live on an Earth that's become a giant favela/landfill. My big worry lately is that we're actually living in the golden years now and life will never be as good--for any of us--as it is presently. That one day we'll look back fondly on the years where we had a free and open internet and the time and money to use it for recreational roleplaying.

Very true though.. one of many possibilities that we are headed toward..

So far 2017 has been good. It's still not without its ups and downs, which is normal for any year.
