In my campaign setting, this is the underlying factor uniting the lawful alignments, how they deal withat incompetence(and their view of law overall) is what makes them unique.

Yes,nudity is the law. Let's not forget who's campaign setting this is.

Nudity is not just the law, it's a good idea?

This morning's Global Megacorp hilarity:

Up until last year, our processes around templates, screenshots, terminology, and so forth were really straightforward: A (remarkably-sensible) committee decided on standards once per 6-12 months, the standards were published, and we were supposed to follow the standards as of our next projects.

So all of a sudden, PMs and executives got involved. Now we get mandates of, "We have decided that all screenshots of our application should have a white background, not a blue background. Please fix it throughout, even in ongoing projects. And this is your highest priority."
"Oh my goodness! We saw that you used the word 'customize' in your course. Please change it to 'extend' throughout the course, and all other existing courses!"

And suddenly, I am spending 25%+ of my time on urgent stupidity that has nothing whatsoever to do with whether or not my students will be able to perform successful implementations and configurations. I have to admit, in 10+ years of live training, I never once had a student say, "Excuse me? NobodysHome? On your screen the background is blue, while on mine it's white. Does that mean we're using two different applications, and I have to do something different on mine?"

Maybe I'm lucky and I don't get brain-dead students...

There, that's the first episode for ya. :-)

Since January, the only tv I've watched is the odd ep of Supernatural, and lately Buffy, with my unicorn. I'm beginning to forget what that little buttoned stick is called, and how to operate my tv with it.

Still haven't watched Wolverine play a ninja on tv, and again won't have the time this weekend. My dad is visiting from the other side of the country, my unicorn is freaking out because she's about to meet him for the first time and our house is a house with two young boys, and we have a game day tomorrow.

WOOOOOOOOOOO adulting!

I want a pickup truck. Not to drive to work every day, no, but in the fall I do have to take a class up in Marin County that's a massive pain to reach without a car, and many of the internships I'm thinking of would be a lot easier with a vehicle. If I'm going to buy a car for use outside San Francisco and then keep taking public transit the majority of days, I might as well get the car that fulfills my recreational wants rather than a city car. That meand a pickup truck. Bicycles, camping gear, and surfboards fit nicely in the back, 4 wheel drive and a decent engine gets me up those dirt roads at state and national parks that Dad flat out won't touch with his sedan.

I figure just getting a second part time retail job over Summer break would get me the cash I need for an old used model.

I love my S10, but it is getting to the point that I need a different vehicle.

Not to be "that guy", but be careful self-justifying yourself into a vehicle that really isn't well-suited to you.

In 25 years of high country backpacking throughout the Sierras, we first got there in a 1970 Volvo station wagon, then a 1983 Toyota Corolla, then a 1996 Toyota Celica, and finally a 2006 Toyota Prius. All of those vehicles carried all of us (4-5 people), all our gear, and we never once encountered a road we couldn't traverse; not even the old "20 miles of nightmare" to Devil's Postpile in the eastern Sierras.

I constantly hear, "I need 4 wheel drive because I drive in the mountains!"
Well, driving in the Sierras, the majority of all spinouts and crashes I see are 4 wheel drive engines because people think "4 wheel drive = safe", when it's "4 wheel drive = traction at very slow speeds when not all the wheels can get a foothold".

Buy the car you want, but "I need a pickup because I need 4 wheel drive in the mountains" is usually a precursor to, "Why am I driving a vehicle that gets 12 miles per gallon in this horrific Bay Area traffic?"

Well, my Dad and I just drove through Joshua Tree and Anza Borrego in a Civic, and we ran into some roads in Joshua Tree that straight up banned 2 wheel drive vehicles, and hammered the living crap out of the suspention. We definately had a lot of trouble. Also done some stuff up in Shasta where the extra grip on my buddies 4X4 Tacoma constantly came in handy. Now, I'm not saying I can do anything with a 4X4 or absolutely need it, but I would certainly rather have it, especially since I don't really plan on driving the truck in my commute. Can turn modern 4X4 off, anyway.

Yep; we really didn't do Shasta or Joshua Tree -- spent most of our time on the east side, so different locations, different experiences.

So... depressing experience of the day:
Impus Major just pulled out a squeeze yogurt. The "wild fact you probably didn't know"?
"Ding dong, Texas is a real place! Look it up!"

Really? REALLY?

Squeeze yoghurt?

They don't have it on your side of the pond?

It's just sweetened, premixed yogurt in a plastic or foil tube so kids can squeeze it out like toothpaste.

Drives me nuts -- we can get high-quality stuff in bulk, or even in individual servings, but if it's not in a squeeze tube, the kids won't touch it.

So I'm stuck feeding 'em subpar yogurt because of form over flavor. Drives a foodie nuts.

I don't know about driving in mountains, but nothing is better in snow then a nice (and preferably heavy) 4x4.

And to be That Guy, if you spin out in the snow driving 4x4 that's a driver problem, not the truck. :-)

I am 90% sure I bought a few of those while I was in Ye Olde Merrie Englande.

And a few here in Poland.

So yes, they are on this side of the world too, though they were in plastic tubes significantly different from toothpaste (more like liquid soap soft dispensers with fancy shapes, and intended to be squeezed directly into one's mouth).

Also... They prefer the squeezed ones over the bulk?! Why? How? The squeezed ones are terribly undersized...

I don't ever recall seeing it, but now I know of it, I bet I will.

I'm used to seeing yoghurt in yuge tubs. Squirting it directly into your pie spout seems a bit unnecessary, but each to their own.

I suppose I shouldn't mention that I've been eating potato chip lunches for the past couple of weeks, just because I can't be bothered to make myself sandwiches.

Spoiler:
The one silver lining of my genetic dysfunction is that my doctors tell me to eat all the salt and fat I want. Still, there are probably better lunches I could be eating...

It's supposed to get down to 35-40 tonight with an inch of rain, and another two inches by Sunday.

Oh yes, we're getting ten Nintendo Switch and a batch of Hatchimals tomorrow morning.

When I went to check my schedule at 7 p.m. there was already one person camping out.

And now, from another thread:

Question of the day: if you could *BOOP!* replace a bad guy with yourself, from a video game, a book, a play, an RPG, a computer game, a television series, or a movie (or different ones from each), who would it be, why, and how would that impact the narrative (if any)?

You keep your favorite features of yourself and/or them while retaining the full knowledge, skills, powers, and abilities of you both; for example, you could, if you so desired, seemlessly replace them with yourself and just take over their organization with no one the wiser - or whatever); "you" are the personality in charge, and though you have free access to their memories, "you" (the person answering) are the "real" person. You retain your meta-information about the whatever it is.

... this is late enough that it'll be tomorrow's question, too... XD

W00T! First half of parent-teacher conferences for this semester did not suck! Parents were happy! One mom brought us each bags of homemade meringues!
Next Friday's second half is not going to go quite as well, but I'm not going to worry about that tonight.

Please excuse the following rant.

I swear, trying to update PayPal is like pulling a mouthful of teeth. To update the information, they have to send a message to a phone. But since I moved, that phone number was no longer valid. And it was a land-line, not a mobile. Which means that I had to open a brand new account. But my old PayPal account was linked to my current email address. Which means, you guessed it, I had to create a new email account just to create a new PayPal account. Did I ever mention that despite how I love working with computers, I dislike dealing with automated systems? Had to take a shot of Rum just to calm down a bit. *Primal Scream*

I feel better now. Thanks for listening.

I did Joshua Tree in a Nissan Sentra, but I think we stuck to the paved roads.

"Science father"? To be differentiated from "godfather"? Am I understanding that correctly?


I'm... an alchemist, apparently?

Copy paste from phone:

https://uquiz.com/Result/caxS0R/4650494?embed=False

Whether secreted away in a smoky basement laboratory or gleefully experimenting in a well-respected school of magic, the alchemist is often regarded as being just as unstable, unpredictable, and dangerous as the concoctions he brews. While some creators of alchemical items content themselves with sedentary lives as merchants, providing tindertwigs and smokesticks, the true alchemist answers a deeper calling. Rather than cast magic like a spellcaster, the alchemist captures his own magic potential within liquids and extracts he creates, infusing his chemicals with virulent power to grant him impressive skill with poisons, explosives, and all manner of self-transformative magic.
