Dungeons & Dragons Saved My Life


Jon Michaud on the “significantly underappreciated” benefits of Dungeons & Dragons:

“Though its detractors see the game as a gateway to various forms of delinquency, I would argue that the reverse is true. For countless players, Dungeons & Dragons redirected…

Found out, finally, that I can’t easily follow comprehensive tutorials that include the whole specs of a language but I’m best with smaller, get-started-in-x-minutes tutorials and then working on a project to put into practice what I’ve learned.

And, I fucking hate video tutorials. Let me read FFS!

Mixology Test: Mojito

Actually, as you can see, it was a darker shade of Mojito in a wine glass instead of a highball because I don’t have one as big as I’d like. I used lemons instead of lime and dark rum instead of light. Main things noticed:
