Re: Shocking Revelations and Epiphanies

Through all this pandemic and isolation stuff, it has struck me how little my life has changed. I've been de facto isolated for a long time due to my hypersomnia, so when health authority recommendations come down, for me it's mostly business as usual, plus masks. And I have to admit there's a small...

Re: MIA: Our Fallen Brontos

These would be on "The Videogame Hero Short Story Project" from nearly exactly a decade ago, specifically mine's and one of Friday's. I only had to remember to search for "bathead". :D

For my part, I would encourage you to point at will!

Re: Trump Leaving Office Poll (Part 2)

Yeah, honestly I'm still holding my opinion in the previous poll that he fucking hates this job and would rather be anywhere else than the White House, but he's got this enormous fragile man-child ego that's so reliant on never admitting defeat to anyone that he'll hang on to it as long as possible ...

Rogues: We fight with knives because small weapons are discreet and they don't catch on stuff when you're running around on ship decks or in crowded cities.

Re: CHAT DUMP (and Quotes)

Look
If you had
One shot
Or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted
In one moment
Would you capture it
Or just let it slip?

Re: HOW WAS YOUR DAY

To clarify, I'm not in grief, I'm really more shaken than anything else for a number of reasons. It just felt like this is the sort of event that I would keep entirely to myself at my own risk. Either way I understand any decision to refrain from acquiring further information and I appreciate your s...

(cw: animal death, the kind that warrants a content warning) I'm not the kind of man who intends to step on a rat with heavy boots, but I'm also not the kind of man who wants his feet bitten, or the kind of man with an instinctual grasp of the erratic path of a panicked rodent. There's o...

Re: Game musings and news

A lot of people can't wrap their brain even halfway around the notion that streaming and let's plays are (almost always) performance art. If a playing card manufacturer complained that street magicians aren't giving them a cut, they'd be laughed out of court.

Re: Oh those pet peeves

My Internet connection goes down for twenty minutes, I restart my modem, then my router, then repeat several times, no dice.

I call my ISP's tech support, the guy tells me to restart my modem, then my router, and my connection instantly goes back up.

I bet the Germans have a word for this feeling.

I hadn't really paid attention to the mechanics of buying housing plots so far because there weren't any to buy, but now that they've added some, wow, what a shitshow. I guess that removes any qualms I had about spending millions of gil on clothing materials instead. What the the void else am I supp...

Re: Times of minor unpleasantness

You remember a few years back when I messed up my shoulders trying to keep myself from falling down the stairs? Ever since then it's been a bit of internal gallows humor that the next time this happens, I should just slide all the way down on my butt instead of desperately grabbing the railing. Well...

Re: Election 2020 - Here we go again

Some folk have the faces of baby angels, and some of them are going to be the most evil people you've ever met. And some folk look scary and creepy, but some of them are the kindest teddy bears you can imagine. Still, McConnell certainly looks like he's been promised a gilded mansion in hell. Acts l...

Je peux imaginer de bien pires raisons.

Au Québec, un visiteur anglophone qui sait dit "bonjour" et "merci" se garantit quantité de réactions positives. Ça ne nous fait pas un pli sur la poche de savoir pourquoi il a appris.

Re: Oh shit, what are we gonna do now?

Trump is an icon of America's cruelty and greed. He'll still be that after he dies. He himself is a hollow shell, he doesn't need to be alive to be a focal point for those who love the evil he represents and see themselves in him. He has no surprises left and he is not a complicated person, you know...

I understand the humor value there but that stuff kinda makes me a little sad.
