I think I want to make a programming language in which you can name entry points whatever you want, and have multiple of them and shit. The entry point becomes the default name of the executable. Also, sub entry points. Examples: [EntryPoint: foo] void foo(string params[]) { return; } [EntryPoint: ...

The existance of all-female leagues and constructed all-female teams is symptomatic of a lot that's wrong with sexism in gaming imo. The latter, I totally agree with. The former, however... is actually potentially part of the path to a solution. An all-female league gives a venue that inherently is...

Yeah, I'd honestly suggest actually just getting a full page of t1 runes as soon as possible. More champions doesn't necessarily improve your ability to win games, whereas a T1 runes actually give you about half the benefit T3 runes do, for a miniscule fraction of the cost.
