There is about 5 things I really know RPG's, Comics, Tv/movies, Psychology, and Food. Not necessarily in that order.

And how does that make you feel about your mother?

OK. NOW this is getting scary.

We're spending 20 minutes defining "empathy" and talking about how hard it is to consider other people's feelings.

The fact that they consider this so difficult makes me sad.

But, how does it make you feel.


And, how does that make you feel about your mother?

So, wait, I call SpongeBob SquarePants a national treasure and you're out, but yet didn't leave when [redacted] was [redacted].

You sure about that?

I'm not trying to be a jerk, just trying to provide perspective on a rather dramatic statement. Don't get me wrong I HATE Firefly but I'm not leaving the country over it.

My guess is because it's funnier to make a bigger deal out of something as inconsequential as a cartoon being popular than it is a heavy political issue beyond the control of the average citizen.

Bleak reflection on current events is sad.
Exaggerated overreaction to pop cultural ephemera is silly.

Fair enough, I guess it came out sounding stronger than it did in my head.

My apologies Orthos, just ignore that.

This has been another episode of "Scint explains jokes to death." Join us again next week when she overanalyzes just why that chicken is crossing the road.

Was it to impress his mother?


Or perhaps, it all stems from how his mother held him as a baby.

"You don't even have ONE room set aside for emergencies?" Nope. And if I did, you aren't an emergency. Also "I'm a Platinum member, you have to have a room for me!" Nope. I don't. F~&& off.

And I think the reason they don't really do the "No Vacancy" signs anymore is that they're worried the employees will turn it on even if there are rooms to sell. And to be fair, I would absolutely do that occasionally.

what are the benefits of platinum membership exactly?
I suspect it's something along the lines of "You're a self-important d*****bag, you you are entitled to give us extra money in exchange for the benefit of feeling extra special".

You get the same benefits as time share owners.

A big "sucker" plastered across your forehead.

I suspect this fact dawning on them is why they act like such huge a%+#&~#s.

I just thought he was using reverse psychology.

Dr. Arm Chair is well known among academics for his work in a the new field he invented studying the mind; he has named it Mindology. He is especially interested in studying how the minds of the various races are different from each other. He travels across the lands looking for new minds to study and spread his new field of study.

He is well known, but its more like being infamous. He is highly ridiculed by other scholars who say his work and book (MINDOLOGY by Dr. Arm Chair) are not to be taken seriously. They also question his title of DOCTOR and where exactly he received this title; truthfully he just gave himself that title.

Oh, I'm no doctor... I mean, I'm definitely a doctor.


I just thought he was using reverse psychology.

That'll hurt!

But hopefully only psychologically.

So I know I've tiraded about this before, but it's seriously a pet peeve of mine:

A guy walking his dog down our small, residential street, talking loudly on his cell phone (almost a given these days), and every other word he utters is an obscenity. Considering he kept calling the person at the other end "Honey", I can only assume he was talking to his significant other.

But if you swear THAT much:

  • Your obscenities lose all impact. If I use an obscenity, my kids know there's trouble. When he does it, it's just another normal conversation.
  • Speaking of which, MythBusters did a great episode that proved that uttering a string of invectives was effective in reducing pain. If you've got no invectives that you don't use every day, how are they going to be any better than saying, "Banana" over and over again? (And that was one of the controls -- trying to use non-swear words in the same way.)
  • How are you going to turn it off during a job interview? As I and others have noted, when you're on a hiring committee, the first obscenity is usually an, "Oh, I hope that was a mistake," moment, while the second is, "OK, this interview is over."
    I don't know of a place you can work where you can get away with swearing during your job interview. (OK. Maybe stand-up comic.)
  • It's just classless. I mean, c'mon! You're in a neighborhood full of kids and families, and you're bringing that here? Get some class, dude!
  • If I were a less-cautious person, I'd take the hose to him.

    Perhaps his life is so painful he needs to constantly swear.

    Perhaps the baby is merely a projection of his own feelings toward my mother.

    She's still expecting a call, by the way.

    Watching a video, and they are discussing the difference between Gothic Horror and Gothic Terror. The explanation given is that in Gothic Horror it appears that everything can be explained by science and reason, but in the end it turns out to be supernatural. Gothic Terror, on the hand, makes you think the supernatural is involved, but it turns out that everything was being done by normal people. So the examples he gives are Indiana Jones for Horror, and Scooby Doo for Terror.

    Is that why Indiana Jones and Scooby Doo Solve The Mystery Of King Tut's Tomb was banned in the U.S.

    Gothic Terror Horror was too much for your average American psyche.

    Weird observation of today: Pea Bear and Tiny T-Rex find Danny Elfman arranged orchestra music relaxing and helps expand their creativity while playing with toys or anything artistic.

    Lord Of The Rings orchestra music makes them sad, and unwilling to do anything.

    Fascinating!

    The second question is a bit more complicated, I guess it started when I was a child and

    Explosive Runes!!!

    And then as a pre-teen, I learned an incredibly difficult lesson

    :
    Ninja Ghoul Sneak Attack!!

    Alas, none of that prepared me for what would happen at adulthood and

    It's hard to say, I'm sure growing up the middle child in a large very poor family had something to do with it.
