Carp is a mud-dwelling stagnant-water burrower, not a fish. No, thank you :)
I don't recall ever eating a stuffed carp (maybe I ate some as a child but I don't remember it). My family just fried carp in bread-crumbs (I remember the live carp swimming in the bathtub). And since the nineties, we moved away from carp completely because my mom disliked the carp and started buying sea fish fillets from things like cod or hake - so the very idea about arguments over carp filling is alien to me.
Sorry for breaking your example, but my family unit is quite atypical when it comes to Poland in that we keep almost no extended family relations, especially after the deaths of grandparents.
EDIT: I get your point, of course—I am just being smartass about the example you used.
EDIT2: Also, to prove that I can't into small talk.
Dark chocolate forever!
Milk chocolate, meh...
I started calling white chocolate "homeopathic" chocolate once I learned the amount of white chocolate needed to present a threat to a well-being of a cat or dog...
So, the numbers I have found:
Toxic for pets in quantity of approximately 47 pounds per 10 pounds of dog... Yeah... No. Not even a trace of actual chocolate in it...
Will you accept it today from the kids?

Aren't they all coming from different ports to the same chip? (ages ago my very old tower motherboard had USB ports connected somehow like that at least) Maybe the "loose connection" is between the chip and rest of the board?
The problem is that they gave me a whopping 7 minutes notice.
The courier was supposed to arrive at 3 pm today. He was at 2 pm, which forced us to pack a pallet of wooden game chests as quickly as possible (instead of an hour we had allotted for that task)...
We did it, though it would be much better secured if we could do that slowly. Lets hope none of them will get scratched during the transit :(
Is that health info of the company employees on his desktop?
Well, in EU losing that kind of info would cause enormous legal troubles (and fines) for the company and possibly criminal charges...

Wow... I knew that Apple had gone screaming downhill in a greased-up luge since Steve Jobs died, but they've managed to plummet below Microsoft in my opinion.
You haven't be paying much attention in the past, then...
At least Windows let you turn off the updates if you want to, and pick manually what you want (not sure if Windows 10 got rid of that, Windows 8.1 works fine for me).
Well, my one-shot, rank 6 Moto Avenger shugenja died today, unleashing a shard of ancient evil on unsuspecting world...
The things for our regular group may get a bit more tedious (once the shockwaves of my failure reach us, which is probably not that soon)...
At least I beaten our regular groups' last Wednesday's TERRIBLE DECISION in the magnitude of bad choices (giving away one of the black scrolls to the Empire's foremost expert and foe of the Shadowlands, Kuni Yoru... who happens to be secretly, and unknowingly to our group a servant of Fu Leng).
I started wondering if it was Impus Minor or Impus Major (though I would expect Impus Major more of such snark, not that I can say I really know either of them...)
That's why—as a father of two IMs—you should rather use PM instead of IM in such context...
Duh. Right. I rewrote that part a few times and missed a word.
I really don't care for Hammerfall much, and the fact that they all look like [u]strung-out heroin junkies[/u] doesn't help one whit. But they put so much energy into their performance, and were so engaging, that I couldn't help getting caught up in the frenzy.
You are not sixties enough.
It reminds me of a RPG meeting two or three years ago...
Some guy was spouting quite a bullcrap (it looked as if he was obsessed with GM duty being "punishing" players for whatever they do, as it was his answer to dealing with whatever issues at table as mentioned during the discussion, including not doing things that GM wants them to so it clearly ventured into rather toxic direction). He argued that he knows what he is speaking of, because he is "experienced" role-player with over ten (or maybe fifteen, I don't remember at the moment) years of practice. Me and my friends looked at each other, and laughed about him being just out of being a rpg novice, having, between us, around 100 years of experience, with 20+ per head.
And I still consider myself at mid-level as a roleplayer (ok, I admit claiming some bonuses for being published freelancer) - having worked professionally with people who actually play as long as I live gives me a different perspective.
I could do that as a child. I couldn't do that anymore as a teenager. I haven't swum for the last 20 years so I can't really tell how my body would behave in water now.
You have two children, you are less profitable than Amby...
In late nineties if you wanted to access internet in Poland you generally had to use dial-up modem via the national phone lines. Telekomunikacja Polska SA was a joint stock company of Polish National Treasure (that is, it is a stock company legally, whose stocks were owned by the National Treasure, a common form for various national companies here) - though later part of its shares entered stock market.
Somewhere in early 2000s, it started offering actual internet access as a part of its services, but at the same time, cable tv companies started to offer it as well, together with phone options.
The phone company offered a crappy service called Neostrada (I presume the name was coming from autostrada - highway) but it was often called Neostrata (Neo-loss) because of poor quality and poor conditions (like a ridiculously low limit of 30 GB per month).
(UPC was years ahead in quality of their internet over all the competition here for a long time)
Private cable companies offered much better services and in time, the quality of services offered by Telekomunikacja (which changed its name twice since that time during various merges and rebrandings) started offering decent (though not stellar) services.
Similar things happened to Poczta Polska SA (Polish Mail), when their quality of services improved when they had to compete with private mail and courier services - they lost their public contract on delivery of Court mail for a time to another contractor, though I think they got it back after improving their services (and blunders by the other contractor).
So yes, I have seen things getting better because of privatization, but it's not a magical efficiency button that makes things better.

Well, this is where you answer yourself - the Material Plane is an infinite array of worlds where mortal beings live.
Though personally, I am in opposition to idea that a world, plane, whatever, needs a reason to exist. It shouldn't. It's just is, without reason or purpose.
C) Planes should have physical connections to other planes allowing a degree of inter planar travel for everyone, but not all planes should need physical connections, and there should also be magical ways of connecting planes. You could jump into a volcano and fall into the Plane of Fire, or sail off the edge of an island plane and land in a dark rainforest plane watered by the plane above, or walk across a rainbow bridge to Asgard to find the mighty city the gods allowed mortals to build at the base of where twelve rainbow bridges to other planes all connect, and stuff like that. So there's this huge, complex arrangement of planes that can't really fit easily on a map. Especially with the planes that don't really operate on normal understandings of space and time, like the Feywild or Shadowfell.
Yup, that's great idea - and not far off of how I actually run worlds in D&Dish settings - with passages, verges, and rifts connecting worlds and planes, sometimes via visible portals, sometimes seamlessly (unless one knows where to look).
I meant sweet bell peppers, not the spicy chilly peppers, by the way.
What about the mushrooms?
The kind that doesn't have any potatoes in it...
but that you pour over mashed potatoes and you're in hog heaven.
Ah, ok, that makes sense.
Add some chopped peppers, mushrooms, and optionally tomatoes (tomato pulp preferably). You can thicken it with some sour cream or flour-based roux (I never tried the later, always using the former, though).
