Nekkid death attack? Do you stab them with your "sword"?

With my arrow. Nameless used archery, and there were a few fights where she fought in the nude.

I've never played an assassin, can you use Death Attack with ranged weapons?

Not by itself but I believe she had a Feat or wondrous item that enabled if (this was back in 3.5 when they also had spells... THE SPELLS! ;_;)

No, not seriously.

There will be nothing much to do, nowhere good to eat, and not much to see except the corn and soybean fields. But, I guarantee the money will be put to good use. Well, some of the money might not be put to good use, but I don't think anyone would be surprised by that.

I can set you up with great vacations here in Poland for $15,000 plus plane tickets...

And he might get as much attention as me if he got rid of some of his clothes from time to time, I guess.

Here's one of "those things that baffle NobodysHome (of which there are plenty)":

  • Albany, being next to Berkeley, has a very robust waste management system. We get 3 bins a week: One for green waste, one for recycling of all manner of things, and one for actual trash.
  • It is therefore no surprise at all when people visiting from other cities don't know where to discard stuff; there are just too many options. Honestly, I usually ask people to just leave stuff on the counter so I can sort it all out for them.
  • On the other hand, for all the kids who grew up in Albany, not only have they had the 3 bins their entire lives, but even the schools have education "programs" to teach them which bins to use. It's so bad that Impus Major brings all the garbage in his lunchbox home because the school doesn't have a green waste bin, and he doesn't want to put trash in the wrong container.
  • So how is it possible that NONE of the kids who come over for the Wednesday night game can possibly figure out where to throw things?

    Grumbles as he pulls aluminum foil out of the green waste bin...


    1 person marked this as a favorite.

    Yet again, a problem I have issue relating to. I grew up, mostly, in the Ohio valley, and only ever really had one trash bin to worry about.

    Edit: occasionally there may have been a recycling bin at the mall, but I only really had occasion to use it maybe thrice.

    And how big is a bin. We're given wheeled carts, one for recycling, one for trash.

    Mine are covered with hieroglyphics that I'm sure trained archaeologists could use to determine what to place in each bin.

    And they're 32-gallon rolling trash cans. "Bin" is shorter.

    I just wondered because the tiny hick town my dad lives in they still have the bins. :-)

    So much for all those hilarious comparisons between San Fran and Curtiss, Wi I was working on. :-(

    They give us:

    * A wheelie bin for non-recyclable waste
    * A little brown bin for food waste
    * A big black box for glass
    * A white bag for aluminium cans and plastic
    * A green bag for paper and card.

    Which seems a bit excessive, to be honest.

    I can set you up with great vacations here in Poland for $15,000 plus plane tickets...

    Me too?

    You know, so I can:

    1. Discover that everyone I was ever related to has been dead for decades,
    2. Search for the location of my great-grandparents' farm, only to find that it was bulldozed long ago to become the parking lot for a particularly ugly office building,
    3. Get made fun of by everyone I meet because all I can say in Polish are menu items, Christmas carols, and "kiss my ass", and
    4. Spend the entire trip searching for the perfect bowl of czarnina soup, the one food I long for the most from my childhood, and never get it. Oh, and then
    5. Try to go to Jasna Gora and not get let in because I'm not Catholic any more.

    This is why I never bother to go on vacation.

    So this morning my son fell down in the school garden, swinging on a vine from the grape arbor, and got a huge gash across his left eyebrow. While I was cuddling him and holding the compress on it, to make him feel better, I said, "Well, at least now you will have a really cool scar."
    His face brightened up and he said, "You mean just like Harry?!?"
    "No, not that cool; more like Aquaman."
    This was alright by him.
    But I am still not allowed to call him "Scarhead", which is annoying.

    Tiny T-Rex's best friend's little brother also recently fell down and gashed his eyebrow.

    If I knew I was starting a summer trend I would've picked something better.

    The eastern Poland is less developed so it might be just a rotting ruin. Or it could be bulldozed long ago to build a misplaced ugly factory that is long abandoned by now. Office building is less likely.

    You might actually find it, no promises it will taste like it tasted in your childhood, though. I am not sure if there are restaurants serving it or not.

    I don't know if being Catholic is actually required to be let in, or if they verify in any way if the visitors are Catholic.

    Oh, and in all seriousness, aside of plane tickets, you could visit Poland for much less than $15,000 easily...

    In fact you could get a place in hostel room at $10 per night, and spend another $10 daily per person (though of course you can get better hotel room and more expensive food, $10 for food is already assuming eating out, though). Get a city public transportation ticket for a week for $15 to travel around the city. Bus/train tickets between cities varies between $5 to $50. Visit to a museum or a castle might be between $5 and $40, though closer to the lower half of this spectrum for majority of attractions. The (rather expensive) Wieliczka Salt Mine costs ~$25 for a person, or $70 for a 4-people family.

    Also, Warsaw, the capitol of Poland is much more expensive. Krakow is pricey but nowhere near the level of Warsaw. They don't have a real castle (though Royal Palace is miscalled Royal Castle) nor dragon cave.

    Other cities aside of sea-side Gdansk (aka Danzig)-Gdynia-Sopot triple-city complex and maybe Szczecin are cheaper.

    Honestly, I'd start calling around to find out whether it's worth lawyering up. I know employment laws are pretty lax, but I'm pretty sure that dropping an employee's health insurance without informing him is illegal.

    But of course I'm no lawyer.

    And, I found out why I fell through the cracks. My employer sent me last year, in a plain envelope, a letter telling me that the providers were changing. For something this important, you'd think that they'd make the envelope stand out more. But no. *sigh* Not for the first time, I feel like I'm dealing with a bunch of oblivious "droids." Well, I now have a place to start from.

    Okay, stupid question, but what is there in Gdansk other than the shipyards? All I know about the city is that it's the birthplace of the Solidarity movement.

    I actually had a picture of Lech Walesa up in my room throughout high school. I was a serious fangirl.

    This sounds fairly similar to what we have in Ann Arbor. Except no compostables bin if you live in apartments like we do. Only houses get those. Mostly because it's difficult to do compostable bins on a large scale. Eh, they'll figure it out eventually.

    But I honestly don't ever have problems with people not knowing where to throw things away. Kids not bothering to throw things away, yes, but most people can figure out where the recycle bin, trash, and returnable bins are. It's just not that hard. I do often get asked whether something goes in the recycle bin though. Apparently not everyone has memorized the list of what's considered recyclable in our area . :P

    Edit: So basically what I'm taking away from this is that Ann Arbor is like California except no earthquakes and we get snow in the winter :)
