They won't change their minds. You see, they sincerely believe the vaccine will do more harm than good. Even if they DO get polio, they'll still be glad that they didn't compound it by getting the vaccine as well. Yes, I do see the logical flaw there, that's why I'm glad to have had my vaccinations.

You don't make new friends at work

Co-worker friends who are non-gamers don't help for this. I'll have to figure out how to approach my co-workers to ask if they're at all interested in gaming.

or at the bar/club/activity that takes place outside of your own home?

Finding a physical third place is the one thing I haven't figured out, especially for someone such as myself who has chosen not to drink alcohol and isn't interested in the more cult-like aspects of religious organizations such as Jehovah's Witnesses.

You don't have friends already?


Did everyone you went to school with die after you left school?

No. But that's not the point because death is not the only way to lose contact with a former classmate.

I mean local as in "C'mon over over man, we'll have some [insert drink of choice here] and play a few rounds of [game you all enjoy]!"

And my question is how people who already graduated from college find people with whom to do that.

Would it have been possible for the Congressionally-approved design to have specified "steel meeting the ASME SA316 standard as it existed on X date" to head off the problem at the beginning? Also, did the ASME committee really care about the structural weakness or did some anti-nuclear member(s) of the committee realize it would screw over the reactor construction and do it on purpose?

My VW runs on 100% biodiesel and is therefore closer to carbon-neutral than even the average electric vehicle. Keeping an old car in service also avoids the gigantic environmental cost of manufacturing a new one (which is even worse for modern EVs because lithium mining is a particularly nasty business).

So who's the assknob now? Pretty sure it's you, not me!
