    iggins: Have her steal you a new one

    Like Axl Rose, I decided I'd fucking do it myself and threw down. Like a moron, I got caught. I now have a huge knot over my eyebrow. After they figured out the basic details, the authorities are on my side. I'm a fucking dumbass. But at least I was sober for this ass-kicking.

    I'm not sure if it's good, and it's clarity probably depends on how much you follow my shit-posting. Iggins made a suggestion that someone get my photocopier back. I'm probably packing out in January, and I'll be responsible for the photocopier. I figured it only got as far as the local copy shop. I stopped by around 11 to see how I would go about retrieving it. I got busted by private security. Now my neck is stiff and I feel off balance and I have a big knot.

    Need more details?

    Omg. I just took the most horrifying dump ever. It wasn't painful like when my body is trying to kill itself and making me shit blood and bits of colon. It wasn't particularly smelly either. I just... literally filled half the bowl. This has never happened before on thanksgiving. Then I remembered.

    Cole slaw. My grandfather made his cole slaw and I never eat roughage on kthxgvng. The best part was I capped my meal with it. So it kinda acted like the guy who cleans up after the elephants in the parade.

    I cannot recommend this highly enough.

    Yes, because I can not have male friends due to being a lesbian. I guess I can't be your friend either.

    Looks like I probably won't be visiting this winter, too many farm and mine projects. 2015 for certain!

    Besides the unfinished farm projects (mostly electrical and light construction), I have to completely rewrite the exploration, development, mining and reclamation plan for the new mine, along with scheduling. AND I have to write the same for the hardrock mine, which is still a year or two from startup, but it takes awhile to get all the approvals from over 16 state, feral, and local agencies.

    WTF! I feel your comeback reply was a bit over the top. How dare you jump my shit for a harmless joke. Yes, it is harmless as it was meant with no malice at all. If you would end a friendship over something like this, then perhaps the friendship wasn't that strong to begin with. You get to make that call.

    I joke about my age all the time, I have no issues when other people tease me about it either.

    Sorry if I rustled your feathers.

    Not an issue. Next year will be fine for a visit. We aren't going anywhere.

    I dare because the "harmless joke" gets made over and over again. I don't make it. You make jokes about your age, and you are welcome to respond to others doing it however you like. I've actually cut way down on that, because I think were I you, the joke would be getting a little stale by now as well.

    You deal with things the way you want, and I'll deal with things the way I want.

    I didn't even "jump your shit" but I guess anything short of "Gosh, how wonderful, ha ha ha" is now a "meltdown".

    Seriously, you did kinda jump his shit.

    Tabs is a good guy. He is not your enemy, nor are most people here. I know personally that I have held back on saying things to you because I feel when interacting with you that I'm walking on eggshells.

    For one thing, I've wanted to talk to you about Ferguson elsewhere, because of the travesty it has been, but the postings you have put out there have almost been dares to disagree.

    I like you. I enjoy your intellect and your sense of humor.

    I'm not your enemy. Yet I feel that I can't so much as disagree with you, or even agree with you mostly, without being perceived as some kind of adversary to you.

    I don't like it.

    The only reason I'm writing this here, is because of your response to tabs. Tabs is one of the few people here, past or present, who I can think of as a good person.

    If you want to discuss this elsewhere or privately, I welcome that.

    Of course, I don't speak for tabs, or any person other than me.

    Here's a horrible riddle for y'all... I'm trying to find the name of a top-down scrolling asteroids type game where you zoom around a giant maze, get power-ups, fight other people on-line, avoid hazards, etc. There were, like, 4 ships to choose from. I remember one was called "The Spider" and I think it had cloaking ability. There was even a capture the flag mode for online play. Anyone ever play that game? It was really popular in the mid-90's.

    Found it!! Subspace. Anyone else ever play that game? I love the description: "Do You Have What It Takes?

    Were you the reigning soda-shop champion in Asteroids? Sick of tending to your Nintendogs? Prepared to go up against 10-year veterans and show them what perfecting headshots in Counterstrike has done for your aim?

    Swing by Continuum and see how crappy you really are. Ooooh, pwned! Angry now? Download the game and prove us wrong!"




    Seems like a nice light-weight way to settle differences in political threads. Fire up a tiny 2-D shooter and blast each other.

    I have long maintained that Dragon Age offers a far greater fantasy role-playing experience to The Elder Scrolls, and having just finished Inquisition, i think the third game in the series might be the ones that gets other people to agree with me.

    It's just unfortunate that to make this happen, BioWare had to adopt and implement some features that would make Skyrimists and WoWers feel at home, and in doing so, diluted a lot of what made the core Dragon Age experience something that i was passionate enough about to get into heated debate with customers at my girlfriend's former shop.

    It's actually a bit like how the Grey Wardens must drink of Darkspawn blood to take on their 'taint' in order to become able to take on a Blight and eliminate the Archdemon.

    Instead of more tightly woven dungeons and social hubs, the game mostly plays out in around a dozen 'wilderness areas', that are like mini Skyrim maps. This isn't a bad thing in itself, and BioWare did a terrific job of filling areas with interesting sights and sound, with a density that rivals that of the Rocksteady Arkham games if you're invested in the lore, but this focus on exploration pushed the human (dwarve, elve and Qunari) element out of the way a bit, and side quests became more about simply going somewhere, finding something and then taking it somewhere else, than about talking to townsfolk and roleplaying their problems out.

    Then of course there is the focus on crafting. Not only does this mean spending a ludicrous amount of time mining ore and picking plants, but in order to make you spend the time doing this, they really limited the number of unique complete armour sets you could find. There is nothing nearly as cool as Hawke's Champion armour in the second game.

    And speaking of Hawke, he was meant to be the Inquisitor. The only reason he wasn't is the poor reception his game unfairly received. In his place, we get the most poorly written protagonist of any BioWare game. Hawke chatted up Isabela with lines like 'i bet you have a heart of gold, we just need to dig it out and sell it' while the Inquisitor used such gems as 'i like being in the company of a charming woman'. The companions and NPCs had their moments, but the Inquisitor is bland.

    And to top it all off, there are five main quests. Five. They clearly bought into Bethesda's stupid 'the main story isn't important' bit. It's okay in a game like Fallout, where as much thought and effort went into the side quests, but as i've already said that's not the case here.

    The game is not without its high points, and the story missions are very good, but i can't help but feel disappointed. Dragon Age II haters have ruined what could have been an epic conclusion to one of the most important chapters in Thedas' history. But instead we got a pretty playground full of fetch quests.
