I'm 23 and I hate my generation... I feel like young people act like robots dictated by corporate or political entities
Every person my age seems OBSESSED with Instagram and social media to the point that it makes me feel sick. Guys base their confidence on likes, while girls post themselves with less and less clothes on to get more and more and attention. It has become 'cool' for a young person my age to sell their body on the internet (onlyfans). This overt sexualisation of young popular culture even pushed by celebrity and media e.g, ' Cardi B's WAP'. Now the conspiracy to me is that it is no secret this tech is either China owned or heavily invested in by China. Under the CCP regime where the internet is literally censored it does not make sense to me that it could also be 'cool' for young people to sexualise themselves online, even proudly, for money as is now the norm in the west. So my theory is that this is long term psychological warfare by China to degrade the values and intelligence of the next generation in the West, so that their next generation will be dominant geo-politically and economically. If we have a generation who think it's cool to sell their bodies and react to political disagreements by rioting, then the future of the West looks certainly bleak in comparison to the East? SS: The younger generation's reliance on social media that is China owned seems like it is a long term plan to reduce dominance of the West by destroying the next generation. In China it is not 'cool' for a young person to start an onlyfans like it is in the West.
Took 3 weeks, over 40 hours of work and a really awkward conversation with my dad but here's my remote controlled robotic cocomelon intro. (Repost because Pewds didn't see the last one despite getting 800 awards and being top 3rd this month)
EDIT Again: OK I see how in my original post the idea "warforged are not robots" is inaccurate. That's poor wording on my part that I take back. Better to say my thesis is "not all robots are warforged": Warforged are robots but robots with circuity, digital-programming, electronics, gears, etc. are not warforged. A is B but not all B are A. EDIT: This appears to be a more contentious post than I realised! You don't have to send me personal insults over a D&D-terminology post! So just to clarify: This is a pet peeve! No shit it doesn't matter what people call their characters. It doesn't affect me or anyone else. I mean this as a stupid rant and fun discussion. Original Post: I've noticed in the D&D community that there is a conflation of warforged and robots. I know it isn't a big deal but it annoys me so here is a rant: WARFORGED ARE NOT ROBOTS 'Warforged' refers to constructs from the Eberron setting. They have no circuity, no electrical power source, no gears or clockwork, and no digital programming. In terms of their physical structure:
The warforged are made of stone, metal and wood fibres. The core of a warforged is a skeletal frame made of metal and stone with wood fibres acting as a muscular system. Covering the warforged is an outer shell of metal and stone plates. An internal network of tubes run through the warforged's body, these tubes are filled with a blood like fluid that is designed to lubricate and nourish their systems. Their hands have only two thick fingers and a thumb whilst their feet only have two broad toes. Source.
So let's take stock of what we have here: A 'naked' warforged would look like a humanoid made of wood. There would be no harsh joints but rather a flexibility and smoothness akin to musculature. If you chop a warforged in half you won't spark electricity or see exposed circuity. They will bleed a fluid (which I imagine akin to a thick sap but that's headcanon) and expose a skeleton of metal and stone. They often wear metallic plates which can be replaced with any other material and be in any given colour. Eberron warforged have limited digits but I can imagine specialist warforged were created which varied on this. I can't find any given information on a warforged voice but I do know that it wouldn't sound digital or mechanical because they aren't digital or mechanical. These are not warforged: EDIT: Got rid of the examples of art which I considered 'not warforged' since I shouldn't be singling people out. For those who didn't see them in short it was artworks with electronic circuitry, panels and more electronic/gear-based 'robotic' designs. These are warforged: 1, 2 Warforged are more akin to golems than robots. In Eberron they are perfectly capable of feeling all the emotions a human can but are forced into alternative forms of expression due to a lack of moving parts on the face. Maybe the warforged of your setting act more robotically. That's totally fine! Some people have settings where orcs are the poets of the humanoid world while in other worlds they are the rage-filled barbarians. But if they are not physically warforged then they are probably something else. What if I want to play a robot? Go for it! I'm not saying don't play a robot. I'm not even saying don't use the warforged stat-block for your robot PC. But your robot is not a warforged. Your fan-art of your robot PC should not be titled "Look at my warforged druid" if there are gears or LED eyes visible. To me calling every generic robot in D&D warforged is like if all human-beast creatures were called minotaurs. "Look at my minotaur bard" the post would say as you open to see a lute-playing female with a dog's head. Not a perfect analogy but it expresses my annoyance. EDIT - since some people are saying my post is the equivalent to complaining "dragonborn don't have tails" here is part of a post I made in the comments on the distinction I see (I acknowledge my post is equal to the dragonborn tail posts in terms of irrelevance I just feel the spirit of the matter is distinct):
Let's take the dragonborn to develop an analogy to explain why I have this pet peeve (acknowledging this is a pet peeve and I'm not taking this seriously): The sourcebooks show and describe dragonborn without a tail. The sourcebooks describe warforged without five-fingered hands. You can add a tail to dragonborn and more fingers to warforged without changing what makes them uniquely and identifiably dragonborn or warforged. However, if someone created a character who has a turtle-shell and a frill-necked lizards frill and called it a dragonborn I can imagine you might be confused because there is nothing about this creature that relates to dragonborn. The same with creating a circuit-based robot and calling it warforged. Warforged are wood-based constructs and dragonborn are based on, well, dragons. The only reason I'm not making this post about dragonborn is there isn't a pattern of people creating generic lizard-based PCs and calling them dragonborn (although this is alleviated by the presence of tortles and lizard-folk).
I just recently finished watching Breaking Bad and while I enjoyed it immensely, it didn’t fill the void that Mr Robot left. I have a friend who says Mr Robot is nowhere near as good as Breaking Bad. What do you guys think?
Robot definition, a machine that resembles a human and does mechanical, routine tasks on command. See more. Robot, any automatically operated machine that replaces human effort, though it may not resemble human beings in appearance or perform functions in a humanlike manner. By extension, robotics is the engineering discipline dealing with the design, construction, and operation of robots.
