I'm torn.
Maybe 1/3 of me is saying "mumble mumble what are their parents teaching them grumble".
But the REST of me is saying, "I'm sorry, you just spent *how* much money on the Hawaii trip and you're kvetching about four wasted slices of pizza?"

EDIT: Puts pajamas back on. I can't go shower or do anything else until the stupid Wimbledon final is over so I can find out who I get to hate for the next season because he's not Peter Capaldi.
I hate the BBC for making me watch a tennis match to find out what face the new Doctor will have.

Best use of Bull Rush EVER.

And it may not have been strictly legal, but it was the most brilliant tactical move my son has ever made without help, and I allowed it.
The party was entering the Big Fight just before the Biggest Fight at the end of the AP book. They were on the third floor of a building with a central arena and balconies on the second and third floors open for observation. The CR6 demonically-possessed djinn and the CR3 flind were the monsters in front of us. They were standing next to the balcony. The special text at the bottom of the flind's box said that he liked to use his flindbar to disarm his opponents, then kick their weapons over the balcony. I told the kids this, saying that Undrella the Harpy had warned them about this.
And my son rolls the highest initiative, and he looks at me and wrinkles up his nose and points to the flindbar on the pawn.
"He's gonna try to knock my sword with that and then kick it off the balcony?"
"Yes."
::shrug::
"Okay, then, I run at him and push HIM over the balcony."
::blink::
"Okay, give me a d20."
(He gets a 27.)
(Me, madly googling "Flind CMD")
"His CMD is 17. (rolls another d20) And he fails his reflex save. Um, yes, you pushed him over the balcony."
(Son does a happy victory dance in his chair.)

And, YES, I know Bull Rush doesn't technically work that way, but it made a four-year-old happy.

Er... why not? Sounds totally legit to me:

- Technically, the flind should have gotten an attack of opportunity when he was bull rushed
- Otherwise, the bull rush was enough to push him into a frail structure (the balcony), and it's the GM's call as to what happens. You ruled that the flind got a Reflex save. Seems like a legit ruling to me.

So I don't know what you think isn't rules-legal about what you did, but other than the missed AoO, sounds legit to me.

LOL. You know darned well it's the wastefulness of it, not the money. The "throwing away dollar bills" simile just seems to work well with people in explaining wastefulness.

If it had been $200/ounce caviar I'd complain about the money (and wonder what the heck I was doing feeding kids caviar). But I hate thoughtless waste with a passion.

EDIT: And where's Freehold to drool over your nudity?

...dons "Grumpy Old Man" hat(TM)...

I don't know whether this is a "this generation" thing, or something I've been fortunate enough to have missed my entire life:

Yesterday as part of Impus Minor's very late birthday party, I provided a massive amount of pizza for the guests. (As lisamarlene can attest, running out of food is never an option at my house.)
So the kids piled enormous heaps of pizza on their plates -- 3-4 slices at once, not just covering the plates, but leaking off the sides.

...and then they barely ate half of what was on their plates and threw the rest out...

I'm talking entire, untouched slices of pizza thrown in the garbage because they took more than they could possibly eat.

I'm pretty pissed off, as it's pretty much like taking dollar bills out of my wallet and throwing them out. WTF?!?!? You're so lazy you don't want to make two trips, so instead you're going to throw food away?

All in all, for 6 kids there were around 4 full slices of pizza in the trash. That's a LOT of waste.

Gets my dander up.

EDIT: And yep, since they're behaving like 3-year-olds, at Impus Minor's next party I'm going to serve them ONE slice of pizza at a time, and condescendingly explain that, since they couldn't manage to feed themselves properly the last time, this time I'll help them...

I had that happen growing up. Completely normal lesson.

Because one of the first things you get in final fantasy tactics is rush.

Which pushes someone one space when you use it.

It's a take on a video game that tacticslion loves and has named himself after.

It's probably less funny as I have explained it too much.

According to the Core Rulebook (p. 199), "A bull rush attempts to push an opponent straight back without doing any harm."

I would assume that pushing someone over a 40' drop is doing them harm.
Or does this sentence just mean that the bull rush itself does not cause any damage? (Technically it was the floor below that caused the damage.)
And, yes, I forgot about the attack of opportunity.

Yup, the bull rush itself doesn't do harm but what happens afterwards is up to them.

If I had a nickel for every time I forgot AoO or fast healing, or DR or a million other things I'd be a slightly less poor person.

If anyone cares, the third set of the Wimbledon final is 3-3, Federer won the first two sets, and as soon as he finishes mopping the court with Cilic, the BBC is making the Big Announcement.

Who the f*** throws away uneaten pizza slices? They are perfectly good to put into fridge and eat later!!

Not to mention that you pull a slice from a box, put it on plate (or just hold in hands), eat, pull another slice... Repeat until pizza is no more or you are too full to fit any more of it...

And what if you knew the story wasn't true, but you and your mates told yourselves that it was true to give yourselves courage when you knew you were about to die?"

I think they could have held off on the female Doctor lead for one more iteration, perhaps. Seems just a bit too obvious, given the Master/Missy progression of recent seasons . . . .

That said, though: Cool deal!

I hope the Xmas special and next season are better than the previous ones . . . . Wasn't until the last two episodes that I experienced anything resembling an emotional investment in the story(stories) being told, this time around . . . .

Whenever they throw away a slice of pizza, they have to, as a fine, send me via pay-pal pizza money...

I very much doubt that you could, even if you wanted to; 32" blade and a weight of under a kilo isn't anything out of the ordinary, and even if it was super sharp, it wouldn't make much difference, and it certainly wouldn't be sharp any more after you'd whacked a cannon barrel with it. All you'd have it a blunt sabre and a dead cavalryman.

EDIT: If you could cut through a gun barrel with it, you could also cut through a sword, which would mean that no-one would be able to parry at all without both blades suddenly falling in half.

Also, I know very little about artillery, but surely a barrel that could be cut in half with cold steel wouldn't stand up to the rigours of firing very well at all? This is a question for John, perhaps, or TOZ...

One of the listed tests for that model of sabre was cutting through 5 mm thick steel bars. I wonder what thickness had walls of 20 mm caliber cannon.

Still, it's a pipe... Which is stronger than a bar of the same weight.

Don't we have 20 mm WWII aircraft cannon somewhere around in one of the hangars?

They seem to be having a good time and getting along well. This brings his friend count up to three, and this one can get together with him semi-regularly so that's encouraging. :)
My husband's leg is much better. Swelling is down and he can put some weight on it. So it's definitely a strain and not severe enough to need medical intervention. Kinda wish we could have done the super easy test to know that for sure on Friday, but hey, now we know what urgent care not to go to in the evening.
I spilled an entire cup of coffee on my favorite t-shirt totally ruining it, but I was able to find it online and ordered five of them on a major sale. So not so great event leads to pretty great results as I will have enough of my favorite shirt to wear it multiple times a week now. :)
And I got a surprise special treat edible arrangement as a cheer up present. So much yummy fruit. ^.^

So all in all a pretty good day even though it started out kinda crappy thanks to brain fog leading to wearing my coffee. :P

Tomorrow I have to run around and get ready to leave on Tuesday. The kidlet and I are going up north to visit my dad. I'll have to bring plenty of gluten free snacks with me so I don't starve while we're there. My sisters and their families will be there too, so hopefully numbers will work to minimize potential drama with dad. And if not we can always come home early. (That sentence in print comes across as so much more relaxed and not stressed out beyond belief than it actually is in real life. Having a bad relationship with a parent is not easy.)

How to meet gamers in a Colorado supermarket:

Step 1: Wear a gamer t-shirt, go to supermarket.

Step 2: When complimented on t-shirt, ask "Oh, are you a gamer?" and follow up with friendly convo about mutual game tastes.

Step 3: After parting ways, look down and realize you are not in fact wearing a gamer shirt -- just a funny one.

So, how do we roll?

Extremely minor Skull & Shackles spoiler:

So, we're finally on the pirate council, and we were at our first voting meeting, where you can use Diplomacy rolls or spend infamy points to change other council members' minds.

So, first couple of votes went pretty much by the book, but then the third vote was initiated by the guy we'd kind of accidentally killed and then resurrected. For some reason, he doesn't like us much.

So the vote was 9-5 against him, and we wanted his vote to fail, but since it was already a "done deal", in a gesture of goodwill Captain Finn made a magnificent speech and voted in favor of the proposal, swaying another councilmember to make the final vote 8-7 against, but gaining us goodwill at no cost.

Except... Trevor, the magnificently-played dim-witted shark man. Trevor had stopped paying attention, so when he heard the captain make a magnificent speech and then vote he said, "Oh! Oh! I vote the way the captain votes! I change my vote!"

The look on Captain Finn's player's face was priceless. We had just managed to vote ourselves into having to give up 20% of all the loot we found in our next dungeon.

And we all found the entire thing and hilarious, and completely in character for the entire group.


Much fun!

Since there was some WWII discussion earlier, how about some jokes about Hitler?

What did Hitler say when Eva put a blindfold on him? I can Nazi.

That would not offend me (I don't think.)

One day, an assistant told Hitler that they were mining too many useless ores. So Hitler told him to "Mine less." Upon hearing that, a grammar Nazi burst into the room and shouted "Mine FEWER!" Hitler looked up and said "Yes, what do you want?"

I can almost feel sorry for Hitler. Look at all those old photos. Every time he went for a high-five, everyone just left him hanging.

What was Hitler's favorite letter? Not Z.

If you don't think history is amusing, then you haven't seen pictures of Hitler in shorts.
