Scary Canadian? Isn't that like Military Intelligence or Microsoft Works? ;)

Discuss federal politics with a member of BQ - you will know terror.

Not when it's me.  ;D
Heh. See, I don't find CanRay remotely scary. Then again, I'm someone who enjoys driving on a hiway when it is bumper to bumper at 80 MPH, so...

Meh. They can't be worse than the Tea Party nutjobs I have to deal with down here. There's a difference between annoying idiots you don't want in power, and terror-inducing.

Again, meh. There's plenty of people who were (and still are) extremist nutbags who run for (and sometimes gain) office. That doesn't scare me. Give me that over standing between Alabama-Auburn fans. Or worse, those idiots who follow Soccer in Europe or Latin America. THOSE people scare me worse than a few terrorists.

I fear for my life every Banjo Bowl just in case I'm wearing the wrong colour clothing.

BQ terrifying? Really?

Meh! FLQ days are over. Now it's the other way around, a federalist nutjob trying to assasinate our newly appointed Prime Minister. Proof that extremists appear in every idiology, every single one of them.

Seems like we Down Under got off light when Pauline Hanson & One Nation were trying to make waves.

Now if only we could get rid of Tony Abbott, the Tea Party-wannabe.

It's more the passion my BQ friends have in discussions that I was joking about  ;)

I live in Missouri - we get Tea Party, White Supremacists and sundry varieties of WTF here.

Yeah, she was just embarrising.  No, we seem fairly quiet in comparision to the US.  Abbot, a bit out there by our standards, is probably still a moderate in comparision to some of the american comparisions

Why is there RL politics being discussed?  This is an SR5 Speculation thread, not a place to discuss political opinions!!!

Yes, they are CanRay. And if it continues, the thread will be locked.

With the announcement of SR5 for next year, will we get previews of any new mechanics in the new edition?

Oh, and what year will SR5 be set in as the 'default' year?  Me, I'm hoping for a twenty year jump.

What, IMO, would be a sort of "reset" for the setting: another Matrix crash, which causes all the wireless technologies to basically implode.  It would be cool that in the mass chaos of what happened, a new conspiracy to reunite the old U.S., and this time they're successful.

Or (borrowing a little from Star Wars), the MegaCorps engineer a nanovirus that attacks all the metatypes - causing a whole-new halocaust, with the end result, the destruction of all the AAA MegaCorps.

....Just some random thoughts.
