Very nice. And it turns out I like the same one as Nigel.

Do you want to see survivalism gameplay?  Namely, hypothermia, realistic needs and hunting?  There are mods for this, but I'm waiting for the patches to be updated for the latest version, as the new Frostfall mod has significant performance improvements over the currently patched version.  This will mean the possibility of freezing to death, starving to death etc.

Secondly, what kind of character would you be interested in.  I have a couple of ideas, and I'm pretty open to any of them, as all should be end-game viable.  Basically, your choices are nightblade (stealth and magic), paladin (shiny armor and good magic) or spellblade (fire magic and conjuration and swords). I'll come up with backstories and motivations later.

I would say Nightblade, as I'm a sucker for the stealth classes, but if it is deemed too overused, I would go with spell blade, both since it would likely be really interesting and to remind myself to branch outside of stealth once in a while.

As for survivalism, while I am on console, so no mods for me, I am interested to see the depth it adds and its affects on the rest of gameplay, so go for it

Some Youtube videos: Hunterborn and Frostfall.  The Hunterborn one is quite out of date, the alchemy and equipment overhaul it provides is now quite extensive.

The idea with a Spellblade would be to use Destruction at range, Conjuration for Tanks, Alteration and Light Armor for defence, swords for melee.  Probably also a bit of alchemy and enchanting, but I have a mod, Honed Metal, which allows me to approach NPCs to do my crafting and enchanting for me, provided with the right materials and enough money (much like Morrowind).

Frostfall is currently, save or don't, IIRC, and it doesn't currently seem to recognize cloaks and scarves added by other mods that it used to. It feel like it's a whole lot harder to stay warm.

GRE today.

I feel pretty good about everything except the geometry of triangles, because triangles, man. So many ratio rules that I never memorized.

Triangles, lazy ass cones  :argh!:

I peel off my face, revealing that I was an orc all along, after locking all the emergency exits, preventing all the pinkies from fleeing.

I'm kind of freaking out over not knowing what sort of writing sample to submit for the neuroscience graduate program. A research paper? A poster?

This is probably not helpful: submit something that shows you're an interesting human willing to work to learn things and find stuff out, because discovery is cool.

The problem is that the instructions say "a writing sample". That's it.

Yet, it's a science program. So they likely want a sample of science writing, ie. a research paper, abstract, or poster.

Most biology graduate programs don't ask for a writing sample at all.

Ask someone involved with the graduate admissions. I've found the ones working at the schools I'm applying to, to be very helpful.

The anime is fucking awesome. And part 3 is so much "big gay cowboys fighting" the anime.

Is LMNO's smile really that...disconcerting and I've just been blocking it from my consciousness?

Give the option of having multiple characters and/or henchmen and hirelings (0-1st level npcs).

A PUA group takes up the offer to rent a 'creepy remote cabin' from a poster on one of their messageboards; the poster claims that he will 'scare the pants off the chicks' by 'staging a demonic summoning'. These PUAs manage to net three sisters visiting nearby on spring break, and later on, discover they are underaged. The owner of the cabin actually summons a demon, and the demon kills all of the PUAs but leaves the girls untouched; it turns out that the girls were, in fact, the owners: the posting was a honey-trap and a means of finding people to sacrifice to Satan who the world could do without, in order to lift a curse on their family that for the past six hundred years has rendered them incapable of maturing past the physical age of sixteen.

As sunny days give way to autumn chill and rain, it's time to shelve the shandies and move to something a little more wintery; that old Pacific Northwest classic, milk beer, aka bilk.

This recipe works best with a Porter or a Stout but any rich smooth low-hop ale will work.

3/4 beer
1/4 milk or half-and-half
Pinch of ground cardamom

That sounds delicious.

I must disagree. It might prove to in fact be delightful, but my brain is simply not willing to put the equation milk+beer=yum in with the "true" stuff.

That's not to say I won't try it, but skeptical wizard is skeptical.

It's surprisingly refreshing, and kind of oddly comforting at the same time. You wouldn't think it but its true. You have to use a fairly strong beer or the milk sort of washes out the flavor, though.
I can just see the face of the liquor store attendant when I ask for a recommendation on a low-hop ale that has a flavor strong enough to blend with milk and not be overpowered.


I did this with some leftover Genesee cream ale, 2% milk, two dashes of ground cardamon, and a dash of ground cinnamon. After each ingredient was added I had my wife taste it.

She has no idea if she likes it or hates it. She kept making this wonderfully angry perplexed face.

Met Permagos today.

So Tucson now has Zenpatista, Permagos, myself (and associated related spags), choppas, and Frank the Bastard.

You will all come to Tucson.  I've told you about this.

95% sure I am going to make this next drill my last. I've been waiting around since June for a yay or nay on whether I will be able to reenlist. My ETS was 18 June.
