Re: No, Starship Troopers Is Not Brilliant Satire

That's not quite what I'm saying (or trying to say) in the bit you quoted. The point of that paragraph is to show that "its clumsiness is part of why it's good!" is sort of an escape-hatch from...

Re: Synchronic

Re: Pets

A massive success: we raised just over $2,300 when all was said and done (pre-matched funding!). That's over triple what I'd had in mind for a "successful" event. The generosity (including donations...
