I'd forgotten that's our : rwhn : emote :lulz:

The comics I've enjoyed the most have always been the stuff that falls outside the Spandex Pro-Wrestling With Lazers category. Even the stuff I like within that category is either a self-contained alternate universe story (see DC's "Kingdom Come" for my favorite example by far), or, like, Deadpool.

As a little kid, I never wanted my favorite things to end. TV shows, books, series of any kind; I wanted them to go on filling my imagination forever. But as an adult, I think a well-executed story arc with a proper ending is priceless. Even if I don't make it all the way to the end, or it never gets finished, the sense that something has been written with an ending in mind greatly affects the feel of the story.

An endless superhero story is exactly the same as a cheap soap opera that goes on forever, but with slightly more exciting visuals.

Roger is nicer in person than on the forum.  Also even more talkative.

He's not nicer, you can just tell that he's laughing and that makes him seem nicer.

I don't bust you out when you're doing bad things to people.  :rogpipe:

I only know this because I suffer from the same effect. People always say "You're so much nicer in person!"

No I'm not.  :lulz:

It's like, everyone in the universe knows that typed posts on the Internet lack tone...

...but everyone assumes that the tone being taken is contemptuous or mean. They just fill in the blank with nasty.

I will hereafter pledge that, if I can't determine the intended tone of a post, I will assume it is gregarious and charitable.

Wow, that's a relief.

I found putting an uncoated aspirin on the sore helped.

RPGs are really near the top of the list for "When it's good it's great, when it's bad it fucking sucks donkey balls" hobbies.

I've spent most of my RPG energy on LARPs in the past few years. Four or five weekends a year translates to much more actual game time than I ever managed with a tabletop group. Of course, if the community was bad it would be a nightmare too.

Games would be great if it wasn't for all these damn gamers.

I bet none of these use geothermal systems either, just because.

And assuming you lasted a year... What then? You'll have to come out eventually.

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

at first I was like  :?

but then you said

Pinch of ground cardamom

and then I was like :fap:

gonna try the heck out of this.

Supernatural is trash.

QG keeps asking things about rocks and stuff. Gets me all weird around the collar.

My understanding of the process of making synthetic diamonds is that it is accomplished by taking a miniscule diamond seed crystal and putting it in a vacuum chamber. That chamber is then filled with vaporized carbon, which sticks atom by atom to the diamond surface to make it bigger. I would assume that a certain amount of the carbon sticks to the walls of the chamber.


Put 'em all in one place for easy pickin's after we all turn into Morlocks. Good plan!
