I'm a little late but is anyone else on the Darkest Dungeon train?

I got to the second sub-boss, the Seer, slowly ticking him down with DoTs while my meleers hacked through his protective rows. He's down to the last few hits, but then wipes three of my party members and leaves my Hellion on Death's Door with a debuff. He's two hits away but without healing she won't make it. Fuck it, I hit him with the glaive, have a freak crit and kill him. I practically jump for joy, then I remember those other three party members are permadead and there's no save scumming to try for a better result.

For her success, I rewarded my Hellion with a week of flagellation to reduce stress. Luckily I think I can dive right back in because my Crusader just got his syphilis cured.

The ups and downs are very Dark Souls.

I am highly amused that this popped in and out of my FB feed VERRRRY quickly.

Thanks a lot, algorithms!

The next one is on Trump and the whole idea of "just do it more" when discussing fighting an asymmetrical war.

I've basically matched candidates to their principle form of bad signal.

THAT is a pretty interesting premise. I'm looking forward to more.

Hope it was a good one, Roger.

Today, it's my turn.  I bet you ungrateful bastards didn't even get me anything.



would you

Today marks 48 years that I have been stuck on this mudball.

Happy arrival on this mudball day.


I once found a note I'd written without any recollection of it that said "The clock that is stopped is not broken; it has arrived."

OK then.

We are incurably diseased. Most here are malformed and disturbingly subnormal. We're almost exclusively mentally deficient in some way and we laugh about it. About everything.

And it's quite catching. You're probably already riddled and there is no cure.

Sleep well. Eoc is watching you so he'll let us know if you do.
I. I've F5'd a million times.. I.. might. What are the symptoms??

Well I'm sort of everyone's EoC. It's like asking whose Ebola.

It's a terrible thing when you have to explain your references.

Take today for instance. My wife's had a bit of pain resulting in an overnight stay in hospital. Pain coming in waves, bit of a shit, times when she can talk and laugh and times when she.... can't. All resolvable and should be fine in less than 24 hours. Good stuff modern medicine.

So suggesting that if the current treatment doesn't work, we can always look at the "Old Yeller" option didn't exactly get the response I expected from the 20-ish and late 40's-ish nurses.

"Old Yeller?"
"What's that?"
"Err... You know, the film?"
"Never heard of it"
"Pretty famous film, a kid and his dog..."
"Is it new?"
"I've got a dog, let me find my phone"
"...and the dog gets rabies....."
"Oh no!"
"My dog's got a disorder too"
"...What? No, the kid, you know, shoots it"
" (Untranslatable gibbering)"
".... It's a pretty famous film"
"(Still indecipherable)"

In my defence I really don't think this is an obscure reference.


Man you brits really take right to die seriously.

While that is good news, I still believe I'll be voting No to expand Charters.

Even if it passes the total amount of them cannot exceed 1% that of other public schools, which is not a high enough percentage to enact meaningful education reform even for underperforming districts. Ideally, a No vote could signal lawmakers that a significant investment is needed in public schools, rather than a series of charter bandages.

And while I realize this is significantly less solid basis than an actual study, I have a shit ton of teacher friends and they are all voting against it as well.

For the first time in 5 years, I have my whole family together again.  :banana:

Excellent work that two legged Komodo.

Why don't you offer to show them what you've learned in the kitchen over the past few weeks?

Junkie I seriously admire your dedication.  :lulz:

I think we could throw together a kickass recipe book if we went for it, I love the PD style.

As long as it has Alty's candied yams recipe.  :lulz:

I mean, if they're getting paid to figure out how to cause enough of a ruckus to blackmail the IT guys into building them bodies in the next level out to get downloaded into, I could get behind that.

Interesting idea:  As we burn up each given Earth, we download ourselves into a new version.  Which gets burned up because everyone realizes at some level that the way we act is unsustainable.  Then one day on the original Earth, lack of maintenance causes the system to fail, and we all wake up in an unbreathable soup of overheated atmosphere.

I told you guys a long time ago, we're all in Paes' backup hard drives in The Beast as it sits quietly blinking in an abandoned motel in the shrunken remains of the previous reality's Tucson.

A woman used the term "microbiome" flirtatiously with me recently and you guys :fap:

I have to say I've come around to Sanderson. Mistborn left me with a giant case of literary blueballs and I had all but sworn him off. A friend gifted me Way of Kings and I'm thoroughly hooked. Words of Radiance was an impressive follow up.
