    I'd have called them "mistrained", but undertrained may be accurate too.

    Private security is often paid better than police officers. It's why police moonlighting on those jobs is so common. And the fact that it's so common is proof that they're underpaid.

    "Abolish the police" is an actual movement that wants to end police completely, though it's smaller than the "defund the police" group. The CHAZ is big on it.

    I liked it, but it's better with people to play with. I liked the early game most, when everything is terrifying and exploration is still a big part of it. It gets a bit grindy later on - my group...

    The end of this month we'll start getting quarterly earnings posted, and it's the end of the fiscal year for many companies. That's probably a good opportunity for an economic shock leading to a...

    He can't pardon himself for any crimes he hasn't been charged with*. Just sit on the charges until Jan 21.

    *Well, technically he can still give himself the pardon, but it wouldn't help him any.
