True. But it doesn't make them a bad actor.

For all his insanity, for example, Nick Cage is still one of the best actors of our generation, even though he really likes a quick paycheck. You almost think he's actually two different characters in Face/Off, for example, but Ghost Rider 1/2 are both abyssmal. (Though to be fair, Nick Cage is a massive Marvel Comics fan, and he just took the first script with a Marvel character offered to him. His name is really Copola, as in Francis Ford Copola's nephew, but he changed it to Cage to avoid nepotism and Luke Cage is one of his favorite characters.)

I liked bits and pieces of ghost rider 1 and 2. Certainly loved the penance stare.

Welp. Magic Missile might be a thing in the distant future (but it'd likely be really energy inefficient).

Well, Impus Major got officially weighed in P.E. today.

He has finally cracked that brutal ceiling that is the Girl's Featherweight Wrestling weight class, at least according to the handout he received.

But wait! (Weight?)

Apparently in 2013, fearing injury to the teensy, they upped the minimum weight from 98 to 101 pounds. D'oh!

(For those wondering, he's 5'1", 98.1 pounds, or 155 cm, 44.6 kg for you furriners.)

Blergh. Kidlet has been home with a cold for the last two days and today I seem to have caught it as well. :/
But at least he is doing better and should be able to go back to school tomorrow. For which we are both grateful. He hates being stuck at home with just me. Not even unlimited video game time makes up for that apparently. :)

In better news, early spring means early spring clothes shopping and I am finally out of pants purgatory (that awkward spot where one size of pants is too big, but the next size down is too small) and have finally made it to the next size down. It's so nice to not worry about my pants falling down. :)
No idea how much if any weight I've lost since I'm not due to weigh myself until next month. For the sake of my sanity I only step on the scale every three months. But I've lost two inches off my waist since January, so I figure that's the more important measurement anyways. The current meds to control my blood sugar are working out really well and with my blood sugar down all that healthy crap I do like eating well and exercising actually make a difference. It's a nice change. Although the part where my shoe size went down was weird. And the blisters were unwelcome. As was having to buy all new shoes. Apparently high blood sugar makes my feet puffy. But it wasn't visually obvious until they became unpuffy. *shrug* It was just kind of odd.

A semi-successful night in the gym. Mom got my wife and I a belated anniversary cake that resulted in a late start at the gym and the evening itself being cut short so we could bring the cake home. And what a cake- two types of cannoli cream. I know diet is important, but this is anniversary cake from mom on the day the wife and I started dating(dating anniversary), I think I'm forgiven. Legs did get a workout to boot as I took an extra long walk to the gym itself. Now to get some sleep and prep for the morrow...

And yes, high blood sugar, as well as high sodium, can result in mysterious swellings.

Greenhouse gases, perhaps.

I'm not really an expert on storing farts personally, but it seems like Arizona would have a place for that. :-D

Anyone ever play Iron Kingdoms? I just joined a group playing that. Seems an interesting system. Very simple roll resolution, but character generation seems a bit complicated.

I like that even though it's classed, you pick two classes and make a hybrid of them.

Sounds fun, never tried it.

If I ever need RPG guinea pigs though, I'm totally calling you, Drejk and Tacticslion, you guys have played everything. :-D


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Not even close to everything. I've played:

D&D 2 (Not enough flexibility)
3 (every thing wrong with 3.5 but worse)
3.5 (decent but too mathy and poorly balanced)
4th edition (Every class is the same with different fluff text. Hated it.)
Pathfinder (7/10, best they can do with a classed system and exponential growth)
New World of Darkness (loved it) and its subgames
GURPS (too complicated to build characters for newbies)
Mutants and Masterminds 2nd and 3rd (what all d20 needs to be)
Shadowrun 4th (far too complicated)
Savage Worlds (simple, streamlined, and plugs into anything - my favorite)
Rifts (too randomized, chargen relies on luck and can vary greatly)
Iron kingdoms (as I said earlier)

...that's all I can remember.

My brothers were always a$@!*&*s about Rifts, not Tolkien enough, I guess.

Nightbane was a fun concept, gotta look around for that one again. :-)

Wow... so beautifully and succinctly put. Don't forget, "Every class has at least one at-will ability that is better than its basic attack, so anyone using a basic attack, ever, just doesn't understand the rules..."

I notice nothing from Chaosium (Runequest, Call of Cthulu). A hatred of d100 systems?

Just never found a group playing it, NH. I'm up to try it.

Except I will say I hate Cthulhu's "even if you win you lose" flavor.

*cough* You still had to use basic attack if you wanted to make an attack of opportunity (though there were at-will powers with "you can use this power in place of basic attack when making attack of opportunity" rule). Or if you were melee-focused character that picked up a ranged weapon (or ranged-focused who was forced to fight with melee weapon for some reason).

I read it:
Actually, I did, but my joke...well my sarcastic snark...was derivitive of one major religion's garb that literally leads to a lack of identificationif worn on an identifying document, because you can't see the person's face. Actually, I wonder why there aren't more banks robbed by people claiming religious garb upon entering...

I'll go no further than that.

There are tons of games that I haven't played. Some of them I wish I could play, some of them I wish I have played but now have no intent to play them because of mechanics too clunky for my current patience (though I might consider reusing their ideas while using a different system... I am looking at you RIFTs).
