    I see life as a great adventure and on so many levels.
    No one has walked my path for sure and I would bet good money than no one has walked anyone else's.

    Its cool right?

    In the second dev stream they mentioned getting a max of two junk turrets after perks. From Kumquat's stream you can see he reloads a quality level 3 junk turret with 41 rounds (not sure what these are made of yet):

    I don't think we've seen the latest iteration of the Junk Turret perk tree, when Joel showed it back in June we only saw placeholder perks (craft better quality, +25% damage, +50% fire rate, etc.)

    Maybe Roland has insights on the junk turret he can share from his intellect build?

    I want whatever build MM had going on this last round... he was impenetrable by zombies, so no other build can compete.

    But it's also by far the most expensive build. Other builds would probably work as good in specialized ways; the trigger happy mini tank who can deal tons of damage has always been the "can do it all" sort of build.

    Yeah from pipe bombs and rockets, but from rare demolishers? Not a problem with that.

As long as you had the bullets and enough for the next book, you were set.
    I spent it on minibike, 4x4, gyro, books, and all the brass/gp/762 ammo I could find, and any armor that was an upgrade at the time.

    I still think history is mostly useless in schools. What Alexander the great or the Aztec did was of no concern to normal people. Teach something practical like how to make video games, how to talk to women, how to negotiate a better deal, all stuff I learned the hard way. Cool story bro doesn't teach me anything useful, not even politicians. Military tacticians perhaps? I'd say teach it during middle school and be done with it. High School should be trades, working on stuff, sports, cooking, stuff you can use in a survival game

    Hence why, in a perfect world (imo), once you entered high school, there would be many different subjects one could choose to invest their time and education in, depending on their interests. (This could cause issues of piers wanting to be within the same classes as some of their other piers though.) For instance, if you wanted to learn computer programming or military tactics, you could do that, but if you were not interested in those subjects/you know they probably wouldn't help you personally, you could choose other options instead. Again, a pipe dream.

    I avoided the book series. I wanted some surprises.

    I'm curious about the perception/int build. Those attributes seem to be fun to use against a horde.

    I look forward to the non-tanky skilled version of MM.

And I also agree, school should definitely teach more "functional" subjects that actually prepare kids for the big bad wide world out there, that expects and requires (well, mostly) that you make your own way through it, off the fruits of your own labour. But even when History has to touch on the darker side of human nature, it can still point out the good as well as the bad (there was at least one German solider in one of the camps imprisoned for refusing to participate in what was going on for example, and a few others who actively tried to help).

    I also think school should teach civics too, get kids to understand the privileges of a democracy, but also the duties people ought to have to it, cause a big fraction of the world has to live under much less savoury types of government.
    No argument there. I have a bad habit of making blanket statements, I do think History should be taught in grade school and middle school, but high school you should have a choice. If your interested, great its there but I'd rather have had more options to learn useful things. LIke I took home ec in 8th grade and that paved the way for me to be a decent cook. Shop in high school taught me to rebuild engines, change oil, do tune ups, etc.

    I dunno, reading about how 280 or so Spaniards conquered a nation of 12 million was pretty damn cool... Not so much cool for the incans, but...

    Also, things like Neville's Appeasement are pretty damn relevant today imo, even though we don't seem to have learned from it.

    Downgrade meshes are great, downgrade blocks are just a hack we should fix. Its so lame to chop through a 2000 hit point block only for another 1000 hit point block to spawn in its place. On health bar one block, and show new meshes as its beat up would be much better.
