• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    What are you reading? II

    Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut at the moment. I hope to scratch off a few more before I go back to college, maybe The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro or A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James.

    Social Darwinism

    If you see this duty of care being enacted through state policy, then you're looking at social liberalism as both the ideology of the society and the ideology of your positive individual. If you see this duty of care being enacted by the private initiatives of relatively more privileged...

    Social Darwinism

    There is no definition of Social Darwinism other than what MD said. If I really tried, I could make it sound more stilted and detached for you ("benefits tend to accrue with the strong and deprivations with the weak") but no matter what I do, I can't make it mean what you seem to think it means...

    I want to know your underwear.

    Boxers. I have really bad claustrophobia, and tight clothes give me panic attacks.

    Your Top 10 episodes from any TV series

    I'm just gonna give my favourite episode of each of my top ten favourite TV shows, because they're mostly pretty incomparable. "Ozymandias" - Breaking Bad S05E14 "Time of Death" - Arrow S02E14 "The Lich/Finn the Human/Jake the Dog" - Adventure Time S04E26/S05E01/S05E02 "The Bear and the Maiden...

    Need Opinion on What Term to Use

    I must admit to not being a fan of -mancies and such. Seems to me that you could solve the name problems by having separate names for each direction - Summoning/Banishing and Conjuring/Sending.

    What are you reading? II

    I blazed through Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick, No Country For Old Men by Cormac McCarthy, The Book of Evidence by John Banville and the first 200 pages of The Little Friend by Donna Tartt but it's taken me three and a half weeks to read the subsequent 150...

    Musics that sound like each other

    It's really easy to start singing "Savages" from Pocahontas and finish singing "The Plagues" from The Prince of Egypt.

    Wait, what was your name?

    I've met a Jamocky before.

    This is true of literally everywhere. There's an old joke about left-wing political parties that goes something like "the first thing on the agenda is the split". I'm kinda unconvinced by socialism as a solution to capitalism. It would probably best operate as a gateway drug to a transformative...

    What are you reading? II

    I've been having a hard time getting back into reading, so I decided to bridge non-reading and reading with "reading a comic book", which was Grant Morrison's Arkham Asylum. Having finished that trainwreck, I'm about to start Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.

    Duck Dynasty patriarch suspended after saying remarks against homosexuality

    No, he should have been fired and/or shot. Fuck Phil Robertson.

    I've never been on a date. I've taken my girlfriend out to dinner and stuff, but there was never a "dating" period of our relationship. In an alternate universe, I imagine I'd find dating quite nice. Online dating would certainly not be my thing, but I'd be willing to gamble on the occasional...

    The TCOD Disney Thread.

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Great Mouse Detective and Hercules are the best Disney movies, no question. The Lion King is hella overrated, as is Aladdin. In the modern Disney era, Wreck-It Ralph is easily their best output. Shoot me, but I'm not actually mad about Pixar? Apart from TS3, they...
