I begin to worry about people around me become more magical thinking. I know it's the result of the enormous anxiety caused by the war. I'm just afraid this will strengthen reasons of the war and aggravate the tragedy

🎮 It Takes Two is a pretty good game to play with a partner. And there was no need to buy it, we just bought the EA Play subscription for a month that was cheaper by 5 times 😏 Yeah, sometimes I admit the subscription model is brilliant))

I like 2 player games so much (moreover, this is the reason I bought PS), and it's a bit sad such games are not popular today 😕

The first time I leaved home during these New Year holidays. Just because I was busy chilling and watching TV show "Landscapers".
From the 1st episode I've learned that there is the proverb in France: la vie en rose. That means that you should look at stars, not to a ditch. You should look for beauty everywhere, even if this is hard.
Then I also learned that "La vie en rose" is the famous song by Edith Piaf. This is a really good song for walking the streets and looking for beauty these holy winter days.

The attempt of my dragonborn warrior to get to know a woman in D&D:
Dragonborn: Do you have plans on this evening?
Woman: Nope. Do you have a suggestion?)
D: ...

D: No. *goes away*

If you don't respect , at least respect authors. Attribute them, ask their opinion on your use of their work, support their creativity.
Appreciating someone's work doesn't mean supporting capitalism.

I'm 14: I want an electric guitar!
I'm 26: Oh, right. *buys an electric guitar*

Folklore isn't copyrighted. But what is folklore? Can memes be named as folklore? If a picture is the result of spontaneous creativity of many people, I see grounds to name it folklore, and then memes must not be copyrighted, right?

Martial asks his friend Quinctianus to protect Martial's moral rights as a copyright holder.
That was 16 centuries before the first copyright statute.
