HEADLINES: GLOBAL QUARANTINE POLICIES LEAD TO RISE IN SHOTBOW POPULATION
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - A sharp increase in the general population due to many people staying indoors has led the Company to a sharp increase of players both old and new.
This has led to an overall increase of general time that the server could maintain a hundred or close to a hundred population. Two servers and sometimes three are now seen to go online.
This has not led to an increase of quality as the people still complain of laggy connections from East Coast to the West Coast of the US to Europe and all over, in spite of the increase of cash flow. It is still “manageable” though for the most part.
Some of the old players who rejoined the Company however have stated that they noticed that there wasn’t many “new” players at all, but rather plenty of old faces that frequented the server before. Only very few of the increase population could be described as new players with the old players only bringing in a few new ones like some certain others who have recently joined the Clan’s community.
The amount of players old and new has led to about 50 or so people in the main UTC Discord.
EDITORIAL - Youths get Older
Irishkaiser - In the olden days when man were still using caves for shelter, the time you became an adult in your society was much much lower, say somewhere around eleven or twelve, when you’re capable of holding a weapon with proficiency. All the better because in those days, you had to grow up quickly or you died. As time marched on and life settling down, the time you became an adult also stretched further.
As did the life expectancy over time. The longer people were expected to live, the longer their growing up had to take.
Granted, princesses were wedded and bore children at around 15 and men squired at seven and knighted at around 16. There are many coming of age traditions from Jewish Barmitzvahs to Japanese Genpukus. They give adult status to people who we now consider minors by our modern sensibilities, but when they weren’t just tradition, they were definitely closer to what we would consider “18”, the arbitrary age by which we’ve set based on United States IMPERIALISTIC CUSTOMS(DAILY REMINDER OTHER CULTURES HAVE DIFFERENT IDEAS OF GROWN UP) that even CONTRADICT THEMSELVES.
21 to consume alcohol? 18 to vote? Please. You people follow what is fundamentally nothing.
I’m sure there is little argument that you had to grow up fast back then because you’d got to be a really non-empathetic person to see the needs of the time, but honestly I think that this should be brought up again and studied as a matter of social consequences.
I think personally that young adults nowadays still consider themselves children. They still run around confused, uncertain and unsure of themselves or their roles. I think it’s the perfect time to raise what we think as an adult to a higher age, somewhere around 20-25. Or, in a perfect world, when an individual can rightly confirm with good sense that they are a responsible adult that deserves all the privileges and rights independently.
A case study can be seen in Japan, where the modern day Genpuku, the Seijin-Shiki, has seen a stark drop in participants every year as more and more Japanese “young adults” feel they aren’t adults yet. Ironically, the Japanese government lowered the requirement age for adults from 20 to 18 and that still didn’t do anything other than “cause confusion” to the youth and kimono garment industry.
Seeing some of ya’ll, I’m really wondering why you people act the way you do when some of ya’ll are supposed to be fucking 18. A lot of you are waaay past the point of maturity I daresay and ya’ll still act like a bunch of tiddly ass bitches.
This is why I do believe that we need to raise the age of what we consider adults. It was only two decades or so ago that we reported the first birth cohorts of a population that would be expected to live over a hundred years of age. That is an INCREDIBLE ACHIEVEMENT of HUMAN HEALTH AND MEDICINE. We have prepared them to live long, but have we prepared them to live? Right now, relatively speaking, they have more time to grow up and I think it would benefit all mankind if these students would just have a little bit more time to learn. Just a bit more.

FINANCE - NIGGERS DON’T KNOW STOCKS AT ALL
Listen here boy. When you say buy the dip, you really don’t know what the dip is. I hear niggers coming around telling people to “buy low, sell high”. That’s like telling people “1 + 1 = 2, guys.”
There are many things that happen and a “dip” can last FAR LONGER than one could expect. The dip will still go down until the conditions that made it shit in the first place are gone, but looks like we’re not having that.
Yeah, go ahead. Buy stocks right now, you idiots. Bunch of punk ass bitches can’t even read ass… I’m looking at you, Karl McMarx.
