Mawson of the Antarctic: meat0918: Goddamn that stupid woman Tipper Gore and the mass hysteria about Dungeons and Dragons.

"No mom, I'm not going to rape and murder villagers and consort with demons, you raised me better than that." is something I actually had to say to my mother when she was worried about my new fascination with AD&D (2nd Edition).


Awwww, I remember having to sell my dungeon manuals... Just really the monster guides, didnt even have the play books. I saved my allowance for weeks and weeks to buy them and my mom was adamant that these were devilish and I had to choke back tears when she made me sell them for $2 at a garage sale to some kids who knew the bargain they had gotten.


In retrospect, nice of you mom to allow other parents kids to get damned to hell while saving you.

my favorite conspiracy is the "Gemstone File" A wide ranging conspiracy it has at its heart that Aristotle Onassis was both the most evil and most ingenious industrialist to ever breath. Among the gems in the file are the allegations that not one of Onassis' ship were sunk during World War because of his Nazi ties and that Aristotle had JFK assassinated so that he could have Jckie all to himself!

mbillips: If you can't trust Jack Chick, who can you trust?

What's really scary is, I used to think Chick Tracts were meant as a parody of conservative values, until i came to realize the comic was a reflection of his actual twisted beliefs!
