Oh my don't tempt me.
Still I can't see that working for SO many reasons:
Still... it might be worth the shock from the family that I ran off and got wed in secret.

Wow that is so wrong.
I mean my mom is the exact opposite but not in a good way.
One could look at stuff like this another way. The goal is to communicate with other people. If you use language they will misinterpret then you have failed to communicate. Sometimes this is unavoidable especially on the Internet but too many times I see people who refuse to adapt their speech to their audience and I can only shake my head in sadness, these people won't be understood clearly in fact they may even be communicating meanings they don't intend.
Now if you don't know your audience then try to be more like Tacticslion and make each point clear regardless of the amount of text it requires.
Let's look at cis. If you were speaking to an LGBT crowd then you could probably use the term without misunderstanding. However if you were speaking to a group of straight people you aren't familiar with then you should use another term as it's more likely the only use of the term some of these people will have heard of it was as an insult if they even know the term at all. That is of course if your intention is not to insult or confuse people... Which isn't a given on the internet.
Reminds me of my light side Sith in SW:tOR.
"Are you trying to redeem the dark side?"
"Only Sith can be heroes"
I am a lucid dreamer. It is an odd talent controlling dreams. First I have to realize I am dreaming. In my case as a child I had this recurring nightmare. I was left in the car with my brother while my parents left us alone to go shopping. But I always got in an argument with him and left the car only to get lost all alone in the miles of jungle that surrounded the parking lot. It was then that the animals would chase me. So I ran and ran and ran and just as they were about to catch and eat me I would fall off a cliff to die on the rocks below.
I had this dream over and over sometimes multiple times in a single night. At one point in the dream I just snapped. I refused to die when I hit the rocks below. Instead I somehow rewound time to the start of the fall and changed the rocks to pillows. I never had that nightmare again.
Now every time I die in a dream I instinctively gain control of the dream instead. It's my trigger to let me know it's a dream. My dreams are SO real it's like I am actually there. The only nightmares that have the power to haunt me now are the ones I can't die in, usually involving endless frustration. I actually look forward to dying in my dreams now. They give me such an amazing look into whatever place I was dreaming about.
I was dreaming once about a Rifts character of mine who thought she was a demon... crazy stuff. In my dream I was cornered and killed in the Burbs by a dog pack and coalition soldiers. And after gaining control I was able to explore Chi Town in first person like I was really there inside the body of my character. I could open locked doors with a simple dream edit or escape the soldiers at every twist. Such amazing architecture and the people were fascinating.

Dragon Age: Inquisition is probably the most mentally taxing game I've ever played. I feel like I need a spreadsheet to keep track of all the s%#@ I need to do.
It's not that different from Mass Effect just all laid out on a map. My big issue is that I can't play it without internet... Still waiting to see why I can't get internet where I moved to...
This is also why I am replaying ME2. Although it really feels weird dating girls. Liara does count as a girl right? I wanted a relationship I could keep through all three games... Liara is the only one. The fling with Kelly is just for the sake of my fish I swear!
Edit: Oh great I swear I am not naked for Kelly's sake!
Speaking of weird things ME... I heard you can get a combat bonus in ME 3 by getting Kelly to go on a date with you in ME 2. How? The paddle fish isn't available in ME 3 but you can keep it from ME 2, and if you do keep it from ME 2 it grants the combat bonus. So how do you keep it? That's where Kelly comes in. If you get her onto a date she will feed your fish for you. And more importantly when you lose the ship between 2 and 3 she will take your fish and keep them alive. How did I hear this... By doing fish research after learning the auto feeder was only in ME 3 on FaWTL.
You can cheat a little by softening up tough targets with a barrage of death from the Mako, just make sure to stop when the target has just a few HP left. The you can hide the Mako behind a rock, get out, and finish the poor bastard with a sniper rifle. This is especially helpful if you want full XP on toxic planets where getting outside for long stretches is a bad idea.
Nobody I know uses the Media Center/player so they probably aren't wrong. I use a community modified shareware player "media player classic" that has been updated with all the latest codexes.
Well he is a known game developer, very very creative with amazing settings and fun scenarios. And it was a bit of pride on my part that I was able to be the only girl he ever let play at his play test table. So yes I played with him.
Reminds me of Sexist GM. He always underestimated me and got angry. One time I made a tiny pixie barbarian and single handedly killed a giant dog creature, he was SO angry that he killed my character every session for a month.

It gets better. Apparently, the university wouldn't give the lawyer any information, and the lawyer didn't even mention the possibility of legal action. Just asked a few background questions they wouldn't answer. Judging by how fast they emailed me promising a new room, it seems they went directly from there into full blown ass covering mode. Which works. I can't actually afford to pay a lawyer to come up here. Or file a lawsuit. I don't even think I have grounds to sue. It is kinda funny that he didn't even have to threaten to sue them or anything to get them cooperating, though.
Oh yes if you have access to a lawyer then the world parts before you in amazing ways. Such is everyone's fear of being sued.
Thankfully then Cerberus is human supremacist. They fought the reapers with a different goal but they still fought.
Yeah I give up... Fate doesn't make any sense. My character (who seems so full of potential) simply won't fit into the paint by numbers role play box you are forced to use to play Fate. And yes forced is the correct word since success is built around the refresh mechanic and tied to role playing the way they want you to...
I really wish I could play... but Fate is just going to drive me insane with its RP & anti-RP way of doing things.
The main thing that confuses me about the pureblooded hate is this: what did the asari do before they started travelling around the galaxy? I mean, at some point, they were stuck on their own homeworld, and the only thing to breed with was more asari. Were there thousands of Ardok Yakshi then? How did they introduce diversity into their DNA if they only had other asari to breed with?
Before space travel they hunted all Ardok Yakshi without mercy, keeping their numbers low.
Next time you talk to them Rostita be very angry and demand to know what they are going to do to fix the housing issue... If the person seems unhelpful go to their superior. All you really have to do is be in front of someone with the authority to change things and angry enough that they feel compelled to help. Oh and it isn't illegal to record your own residence without permission of anyone who may visit. Many cases have been won on such recordings.
Wow creepy scene between Lash and Simmons discussing being psycho analyzed... or was is just me thinking that after what we learned about who Lash is. "people don't understand just how strong we can be"... Is Simmons changed now? Like Lash? Is that what the portal does transports humans to a place where they become monsters. And it keeps opening giving a rare lucky few the chance to make it back out to hunt inhumans. Clearly Simmons wasn't the first to escape because humans secretly knew for ages that it was a portal otherwise they wouldn't know to keep sending people through. No at some point in history people realized it wasn't just death and in fact something more; a (seemingly random) portal.
I am too moral and ethical to rob a bank.
Hmmm... It may not be too late to fall in love with and marry a rich man. Know of any that are single and looking for a perky gamer?
Hmmm... names... ~googles the meanings~
Polyphemus: Abounding in songs and legends.
more later if I get bored again.
We live in strange times...
-A large number of people in the local Democratic party are considering voting republican if Hillary wins nomination...
-The republicans are SO disenfranchised with insider politics that Trump (who is the opposite of insider politics) is going forward with a massive majority in spite of anything Trump says that should end his chances...
Did you kill the Hinterlands dragon at around 20 hours? I always do.
On David's advice I restarted with my dragonkeep loaded... only I have no idea which characters I had loaded in at the time. I guess I will figure it out when I get as far as Skyhold again. This time I went Qunari Mage and will be chasing after "The Iron Bull" as he seems quirky and moldable. Still I hope I don't just end up another notch on his bedpost, that would be disappointing.
I have played a little Beyond Earth... But since I am alone it isn't as fun. The Civ V LAN parties are a lot funnier than single player.
Which civilizations did golarion use? I apparently mistakenly thought they used original material.
Sid Meyer didn't include fictional ones... And since it was a video game it had some very odd physics.
Speaking of Civ V I had a great time with one game I played in LAN.
I was playing the Egyptians and my start city was located on a bay tucked onto the end of a peninsula surrounded by mountains with two passes out. One leading to a very angry Asian person who kept trying to send land forces through the pass, and the other to a very friendly city state that showered me with cool combat units. The other way out was through the bay and around a sandbar where the Spanish Armada awaited my poor ships. So I was never able to found more than one city. But WOW what a perfect place that was. I had hills , mountains, rivers, some jungle, and a sandbar that were encrusted with a vast array of resources. I was able to build literally every wonder while the free combat units bombarded. One of my boyfriend's buddies took pity on me and became my ally. I was in constant combat from the ancient age till I developed nukes (that got the Spanish to back off) and advanced bombers which hit our Asian friend so hard he had to break off his assaults. I ended up winning on a cultural victory, Totally awesome!
