I Blame Cosmo for math....

I Blame Cosmo that while taking a "diagnostic" GED test from my prep book, I didn't recall how to properly do fractions until 4 hours after the math portion.

I Blame Cosmo for all the hours I'm going to have to put in getting myself ready for the math portion of the real test.

I Blame Cosmo that while I suck at math, I still kicked ass in the science portion.

I Further Blame Cosmo that by the end of next week, the mere thought of algebraic equations will have me curled up under my bed sucking my thumb (What part of "I Hate Math" did you people miss!?)

.... I Also Blame Cosmo that this is taking up valuable time I could be spending angsting about how I've got a metric fudge ton of fiction ideas in my head and a business model for producing serialized e-book fiction several times a month, but my writer's block is preventing me from doing it. This GED stuff is a perfectly reasonable excuse, I won't stand for it!

I Blame Cosmo that I did not think of asking the academy if they had financial aid until today....

I Further Blame Cosmo that the results of said question are less than pleasing. IOW, not much, and now that I've paid, good-freaking-luck finding someone to reimburse me.

Good luck.

I Blame Cosmo for never having good luck myself.

Thanks ^-^.

I Blame Cosmo that like me (until recently), John Kretzer never has enough good luck to really matter.

I Blame Cosmo that things are starting to roll up [NAME REDACTED], though I suspect that as usual life will find a way to slap me off my cloud and stomp on my [REDACTED] [REDACTED] [REDACTED] as it always does.

I Blame Cosmo that even though I'm paranoid about fickle Lady Luck getting jealous of my fiance again and deciding to b!^(# slap me silly, I'm still hoping for a positive outcome.

I Blame Cosmo that I have experience in designing and running relatively kickass games.... But I haven't had enough gaming going on in recent years to avoid becoming a rusted pile of scrap in the Junkyard of Ex-DMs.

Ange de la Nuit, welcome to the paizo boards, and internet in general. Seems to be rule of thumb these days to skim a post and assume it means something other than what is actually being said. Something I and my fiance have experienced a LOT of around here, and why I only hang out in very few threads in the off-topic these days, and even now I'm considering saying $*%# it and washing my hands of the place.

But, as I said, it's a common thing in all of the internet these days, particularly among... What's that term going around? Social Justice Warrior or something like that? Back when the whole "Black lives matter!" thing was starting with the major Furgeson riots, my fiance and I had the unfortunate displeasure of dealing with someone claiming they were a "general activist for all", yet focused primarily on Furgeson. The hate and rage spreading was probably not a SJW thing, but about everything else this fellow did was, though he was one of those "You should fight hate with hate, and violence with violence, peaceful protest accomplishes nothing". Anyway, as we're sitting here trying to point out all lives matter, he accuses us of being racists, hatemongers, and most amusingly, decided to stop talking to us because my fiance (half mexican/caucasian) called herself a 'halfer'. All this while taking single sentences out of entire paragraphs, certain words, and stringing them together as if that was the entire point of what we were saying. When we were referring to one specific thing, were specific about it, and even stated we weren't referring to what he kept trying to bring it back to (our discussing verbal abuse while he responded as if we were speaking of all abuse, and we were very clear it was JUST verbal we were speaking of), he goes and structures his entire argument off of maybe three words and a sentence and doesn't even address our point.

Basically, the piecemeal selection of a text seems to be what passes for conversation on the internet these days. People, as general, only skim, and thus only pick out words that stand out to them, therefore they miss the entire meaning of what you say. Buzzwords are especially easy to pick up on. How one takes what you say and responds in such situations often is, I find, rather telling about that person's psychology and mood at the time of reply. It happens on Facebook, it happens on other websites, and it sure as hell happens here.

Depressing really... I blame media and particularly twitter for that kind of thing. Attention spans are dropping like flies everywhere. Oh, and the whole deal of the sudden increase of people who are extremely defensive of their worldviews and opinions and lash out at anything foreign or contradictory.

As someone said in my gofundme thread when I was asking for help... It's much easier to demonize and dehumanize someone, because if they're different from you, then you're safe and secure and nothing that happened to them can ever happen to you... Or something to that extent. Thus why you get the whole "Get a job!" getting shouted at bums...

As for the topic of Baltimore... Gotta feel sorry for the street cleaners and garbage guys... I doubt they get paid more based on how much they wind up picking up, and boy are they gonna have a lot to do.

Seriously though, America's going to hell in a hand basket, and we're just grinnin' and laughin' the whole damn way 'cause nobody gives a rat's donkey unless it's happening to them. Sad part is, as fake as our freedoms are these days, they're still better than the rest of the freakin' world I could try and immigrate to.... Maybe I'll move into a shack in the middle of nowhere with a trusty shot gun and blame everything on the guv'ment. Seems a whole hell of a lot safer and secure than just about everywhere else these days.

I Blame Cosmo for the fact that I forgot about Paypal's fees when listing my items, and only took into account Ebay's fees...

I Blame Cosmo again for the fact that I can't seem to find a local or online group who are interested in playing OVA RPG with me...

I Blame Cosmo I'm still stuck trying to figure out what to do for Patreon rewards, and can't launch my page until I figure it out. Weekly game night is stalled due to not having that great of a computer, and being unsure what games I should look into. Beyond voting on monthly patreon content and raffles for free short (2000 word or less) stories, I'm stumped on what to offer, which makes it feel kind of... Lacking.

... I blame Cosmo I put my ebay bid at 7 days, instead of shorter... Three days to go... *Watches clock*

Also.... I blame Cosmo that I recalled having a goblin pinata at my 10th birthday party, which was D&D themed... Strung it up by the ankle and we all took turns swinging at it with wooden swords....

Also, Cosmo is to blame that I'm the one that broke it, and as we all know, the one who breaks it gets the least candy.

Should one who sucks at math even bother an attempt at 3rd party TTRPG design? How about one who's been gaming for some 20 years and has a kind of pseudo-intuition about it?

I Blame Cosmo that Ebay takes forever to put a listing online... Also, that I'll probably be checking it at least eighteen times a day to see if my RPG stuff sells.

I Blame Cosmo for my not realizing that esports was a thing.... When it was exactly the thing I was hoping would happen when I was a kid. 2 million USD prize pot in SMITE?!

WHY DID I LISTEN TO COSMO AND STOP PLAYING FIGHTING/SHOOTER/RTS GAMES IN FAVOR OF RPGS!?

Been gaming since I was 2 years old.... And now THIS happens.

*facepalm*

I Blame Cosmo that it took almost a year to figure out that my fiance MIGHT have gall bladder disease and need to get it removed... Despite several visits to the doctor and ER. Just got back from a very worried gastroenterologist who encouraged us to get to the ER to get a new echo next time she has issues.

I Blame Cosmo for that horrendous line all physicians tell you "If something's wrong, we'll call you". Cause stuff gets lost in the cracks.

I Blame Cosmo that I got an email at 11PM about selling my Yugioh cards for emergency cash, instead of earlier in the day when I could've got it done. Now I've gotta wait to talk to the guy tomorrow/today (the 10th), and hopefully get them sold by the end of the day.

My impatience and sense of urgency is still not appeased. CURSE YOU COSMOOOOO!!!

Also... Still no contact about my PFRPG goods. You'd think some third party stuff, other game systems, and minis would sweeten the deal and make people take notice gosh darns it!

I Blame Cosmo that I may have to use Ebay for selling my RPG books cringe and hopefully get them sold in a week... Sob Already going to have to use E-Bay for my 2E collection....

So much to sell, so little time. Seems that way anyways....

Blames Cosmo

And if I do it's Co-o-smo's fault!!

I blame cosmo that reading this makes me hear The Saga Begins by Weird Al Yankovic (my my this here Anakin guy) rather than the originator, American Pie (the song).

Edit: Also, Cosmo is responsible for Yodelling Smurf turning me into a smurfing smurf, and whatever smurfing curse smurfs over anyone when they say smurf.... Now, I'm going to go brush my golden tresses and laugh at all the other bald smufs... No calls.

I blame Cosmo that one of the two sister cats both wants and doesn't want attention. She makes a beeline to me, with her tail and body posture indicating she is in a good mood and happy to see me... she rubs against my legs and makes her usual attention meows... and then when I pet her, she often slouches her back away from my touch, like she has a broken back. Yet she still persists in trying to get petted and will suddenly decide she does like it, arching her back up toward my hand... and then changes her mind again a few seconds later and slouch back down. She purrs the entire time. The vet couldn't find anything physically wrong with her on the last two visits, and she acts eager for petting around people she sees infrequently. If I refuse to pet her, she continues to circle and rub for a minute or two, then stands on her hind legs and stretches her front paws up my jean legs reaching for attention.

What the hell, Cosmo?!

Um, how many cats have you had?

Cause, almost all of mine have done that...

Cats make a game out of playing hard to get. All 9 of my cats have done that at least a few times a week. I Blame Cosmo's Hussy Training For Cats©

... I'm not sure if I should Blame Cosmo for IMVU taking over FurAffinity.... Does Cosmo hate furries? Or is he responsible for furries?

.... Hard Times...

To put a twist on an olde Winston Churchill quote, "In a couple of weeks, I'll have a job, but you will still have no clue."

Try not to let s#$# like that get you down. Lot's of people are callous towards people who are having problems because they are too afraid or unimaginative to put themselves in your shoes. Lots of people get scared because they don't know what they would do in your situation, and it is easier to treat you as totally different then face their own frailty. "Get a job is easier then, "what if that were me?" When most people realize that hard times could happen to them, they change their tune.

... That actually helped quite a bit.

I blame Cosmo that I had a night terror about everything going to $#!^ making me fairly thorny today.

.... I blame Cosmo that my faith in humanity has taken another hit. What's the point of telling a hobo to get a job when you don't even [REDACTED] know them or their circumstances? Might be a hobo BECAUSE he's tried to find a job and never could?

"My family is a gift from God, which is good because I wouldn't have paid for them." One of the great truths. :D

My brother used to say...'You choose your friends; you get stuck with your family'. I don't know if he got somewhere...but yeah family can bring you down.

For that I Blame Cosmo.

I blame Cosmo that mine has all but ruined my life, and why I am now forced to ask random strangers for charity to fund the only job training I qualify for without a GED that holds any real hope for advancement... Being a security guard. Which, knowing my luck, I am going to get shot in the ass on my first day. A job I need so I can finally get some semblance of a life, take care of my girlfriend, and pay for a GED to get more training to get a better career -_-.

(If anyone's interested in dropping spare change in my proverbial hat, the link to my GoFundMe campaign is in my profile. If anyone feels charitable but can't donate, please share it wherever you can?)

I also blame Cosmo that I do not know how to contact a forum admin to know if it's against the TOS to drop my GoFundMe link in it's own thread in the off-topic section.

... Should Cosmo be blamed for life-ruination? I thought he just kinda... You know... Collected tears of sorrow and despair to go with his screams of rage and howls of terror as seasoning on his salad...

Hmm. Just remembered another one.

PC got reincarnated into a troglodyte. Player decided then and there to try and focus as much as he could on his stench aura. After witnessing how good it actually was vs living npcs... The party started reincarnating themselves until they turned into troglodytes, and uh... Well, they roflstomped the capital, and became the new rulers of the kingdom.

I... Still dunno how that worked. Maybe I should stop letting people convince me to come up with custom feats for them, lol. It was pretty hilarious though.

I think you'd like the Khymer. Sentient psionic blood oozes that are the remains of people that were beneath some psionic-charged necromantic-energy filled meteorite crash landed directly on them. Now they survive by being puddles of blood that take over corpses and morphing them during the 8-hour bonding 'ritual' (really its just them filling the corpse out as it were) to how they believe they looked in life.

Check out the Obsidian Apocalypse setting some time. It's got some pretty cool stuff.

P.S. (Edit): If you'd like, I can copypasta the Khymer fluff & mechanics from the PDF.

Playing My (Race) Are Different is kinda easy. Let's be honest, it's usually one of the first things changed. Has anyone altered the Geopolitical aspects of a setting?

Well... I've been working on a Golarion specific campaign in my off time. The ship in Numeria was actually MUCH larger than what it is in normal stuff. Due to the machinations of a particularly curious Technic league member, the entire thing exploded. Technology rained down upon Avistan and northern Garund in a hail of flame and radiation. As such, there are now many areas with reactors, some damaged, some not.

As such, I've altered the borders of sevreral nations, and several more have fallen into total chaos.... It's a Kingdom game using Ultimate Campaign, and the whole point is to, more or less, expand and capture the scattered tech.

Oh, and did I mention the World Wound got its hands on heavy tech weapons, and an unusually curious demon has managed to start replicating the tech? Glabrezu with Gravity Cannons anyone?
