Actually, yes, they do exist. They just don't exist at the price point of White Castle and Old Country Buffet. Or Denny's. Or Waffle House.
HERESY!
You clearly don't eat food.
(except Chick-fil-A, even though it's great, because politics.)

Beyond politics, I've never been impressed by their food. It's just chicken, a slice of pickle, and a touch of butter.

I'm not above some garbage food (there's a local BBQ place that does a bacon-wrapped fried hot dog covered in their chili) - but Freehold likes both White Castle and Waffle House. This I cannot condone.

And that blasted pickle is a harbinger of destruction, wreaking devastation on everything it touches. Once on the sandwich, the juices remain forever, and any hope of a pleasant meal is dashed violently against the sharp rocks of briny hell.

I'd also love to add you all on steam, but it might be hard, as I might be anywhere from 6 to 9 hours ahead of the USA people in time. If you want late evening gaming, I might just already be on my way to work.

I've played Borderlands the Prequel for approximately ten minutes, long enough to pick a character (gunslinger, of course) and learn that I suck and died.

I imagine I'll live slightly longer next time.

If you liked Borderlands 2, you really should go back to presequel. While the level construction and flow of game is somewhat worse than in B2, the characters are more active in the storyline. You get to witness Handsome Jack's start of descent into what he becomes in B2 and acquaintance yourself with some of his henchmen that were bosses there.

Also, LAZERS!

MrT is currently going trough the pre-sequel now. He has to do it in little bits, or the low gravity of the game makes him nauseous.

But daaaaaaaaaamn that slippery slope.

Borderlands, The Handsome Collection is free at the PlayStation Store for PlayStation Plus members, and here I was, going to pay actual money for it not even three weeks ago.

Be sure to play it with friends!

And the Tiny Tina added content is easily the best DLC ever, and on my "top ten list" of most-fun multiplayer online "RPGs" ever, even though it correctly identifies itself as an "RPGFPS". Utterly hilariously done.

Bunkers and Badasses is the best RPG ever.

We're playing a starfinder game this sunday, because all our dads hate fathers day and rather forget the day exists. So we are obliging by not coming over/getting them things.

I would at least look into it, moving isn't as scary as it used to be, with the internet and all.

Said the guy who has moved 30 (not an exaggeration) times in nearly 43 years.

WOW well you beat out my mom.

Anyone else think Cpt could be a career criminal? He's the fantasy role-playing version of El Chapo.

It's not as exciting.

My biological father was incredibly abusive towards me and threatened to murder suicide us all and since the state wouldn't listen we moved out in the middle of the night and spent fifteen years living off the grid, as soon as the summons would show up we'd pack up and move.

Edit: My mom divorced him when I was one and had married my dad when I was two, and they left the state shortly after.

That's really close to what my mom did. (more abusive towards her then us most of the time) Her problem is she kept finding men like that. It was her type for a long time. I like to think that's how I got tough because when I was close to big enough I started fightin them too. Made sure they left my siblings alone anyways.

I was lucky that my dad (I'm not calling the person that raised me almost my whole life my step dad, sorry if that comes out confusing)) is pretty awesome, I wouldn't be the person I am today if it wasn't for him.

My brothers were still dicks though, so that toughened me up (if you want to call it that) because they scapegoated me for everything they did.

Not confusing at all. MrT has his biological dad, and his dad.

We have a lot of different licences in the netherlands:

A, A1 en A2: For motorcycles. It has category dependent on weight/power.
AM: Licence for scooters of all kinds.
B: Car licence. This actually comes in a normal version, and a version that only lets you drive automatic.
BE and B+ (code 96): Licence for car with a trailer. (Again categorized by weight/size)
C: Truck licence.
CE: Truck with Trailer.
C1: For small trucks. (weight between 3.500-7.500 kilo);
D: Licence for a bus that holds more then 8 passengers.
DE: Licence for a bus with trailer.
T: Licence for a tractor.

Tractors. Heh. In Illinois, kids age...14?...can legally drive farm equipment from the farm to the field. Can't drive a standard car legally, but a John Deere tractor dragging a plow is fair game...as long as it's in furtherance of the act of farming.

Also in Illinois:
Class A: Anything (single or towed) with a gross vehicle weight of 26,001 lbs or greater. If you're towing something, if the towed item is over 10,000 lbs then you also need a Class A.

Class B: Any single vehicle 26,001 lbs or more, but if you're towing something it has to be under 10,000 lbs. It's the only tangible difference between A and B.

Class C: This one is a bit of a mess. Any vehicle of more than 16,000 pounds but less than 26,001 pounds; or any such vehicle towing another of 10,000 pounds or less; or any vehicle designed to carry 16 or more passengers, including the driver, or hazardous materials that require placarding.

Class D: Standard driver's license. Good for anything up to 16,000 lbs. Seriously. Illinois believes that if you can drive a Ford Fiesta you can drive a 15,000 lb delivery truck on the same license.

Class L: Any motorcycle/scooter with a 150cc engine or smaller.

Class M: Any motorcycle.

That... is a bit of a mess.

Of course the tractor licence is nececairy if you want to drive it on any road. No one is going to check if you keep it on your own land.

In previous free RPG day modules, the rule was always to hand out copies of the existing pregens.

Also, I would advise that if possible, to look for a second GM. Seven people at the table is less then ideal. Even more so if you have to explain the rules to all seven of them. Splitting them into a table of 4 and 3 players will allow you to spend more time helping them out individually.

Anyone ever watched anything from The Great Courses? Lately everything with a plot has been a chore for me, so I started a free trial today 'cause I've been digging educational stuff so much.

Spoilered for religion:
** spoiler omitted **

A LOT of the stuff I watch on YouTube has been advertising Great Courses Plus as a sponsor. Since it's not free (beyond the trial) I haven't ever bothered trying it out.
Can't say I blame ya; I'm normally very frugal about spending money on entertainment, but I'm stuck in front of the tv for three hours every day, and decent documentaries are getting harder and harder to come by via my borrowed streaming services.
There's a few good such things if you just go on YouTube. I imagine once you find them, your recommendations will just send you further down a rabbit hole on related videos. =)
Not sure what kind of documentaries you're interested in, but I enjoyed this one about building and living in a castle. That channel has a lot of other documentaries as well (surprising from a channel called "Timeline-World History Documentaries", I know). Maybe you can find something to watch for free.

If you love animals, I can higly recomend Wildlife Aid.

Its a wildlife rescue charity, and they film their operations. Its seriously informative.

We have large windows rougly south - south west of the house. Lovely in winter. Not so much in summer.

I'm hoping to redo the garden soon. And when that has been done, we can look at some serious shade options. Hopefully something that can cover most of the garden.

Depends if they give you a cake to celebrate.

MrT recently celebrated 12 years at his job.

LOL. GothBard works for a gaming company. She gets all kinds of cool gifts. Even when they "just" won the Halloween costume contest this year, they each got a $50 gift certificate.

In 19 years in tech, my grand total rewards have been:
(1) A pen
(2) A watch
(3) An extra week of vacation (from 13 days a year to 18)

Yeah, employee recognition just isn't a "thing" in my industry...

You're clearly in the wrong company.

MrT works IT in the financial sector. He gets a gift certificate for his birthday and for christmas.
For his 12,5 years at the company, they bought cake for him and his department, got him an insanely large bouquet of flowers and got him a synthesizer (as his hobby is making electronic music).

In my old company, which I was a part of for 6 years, you got a small gift for your bithday. Like a creditcard sized multitool, a travel mug and a box of chocolates.
For christmas we got all kids of gifts. I got remote controlled ball, a little flying drone, a camera (like a go-pro, just a different brand).

Both MrT's company and my company are big. MrT's might be a rival for your GlobalMegaCorp.
Now that I joined a small company, I did not recieve a birthday gift.

I love rats as pets. They are smart, attentive, cuddely. You can teach them tricks. They are easy with food. They have distinct personalities. And being dawn/dusk creatures, they sleep during the day, when I'm at work. So I dont have to feel bad they are home alone.

Yeah. Its very hard to substitute for another rat. Playing a lot is good, as they are smart and need something to do. But you'd have to carry the rat with you the whole day to come close to replacing another rat.

They also need quite a bit of space. Hamster/mice/guineapig cages generally dont cut it. Luckilky, they dont mind how their space is orientated. They easily go vertical (where for aninmals like rabbits/gineapigs you need horizontal space), so a parrot cage with platous works just as well.

If you decide to keep the rat as a pet, get him/her a buddy. Rats are highly social creatures and will get depressed without a cagemate.

This is the most important thing, though.

None of those in the video I linked were really aware of what it was they were doing, or what the results of said thing was.

I mean, one dude was experimenting with weird chemicals, didn't wash his hands, and because he ate lunch and was shocked at how sweet it was, that's how we got artificial sweetener.

Well, the first guy was from 1860. Lab safety rules were a little bit more lax back then.
