So yeah, final day in Hawaii and the inevitable happened. Impus Major forgot to sunscreen his legs. While surfing. In Hawaii.

It will be an... interesting... plane ride home for him tomorrow. On the bright side, he has learned an important life lesson about sunscreen.

lol white people problems

absorbs more sunlight harmlessly

Seriously though, heal up, little guy.

Tell that to my black friends who avoid the sun just as much as we do, then burn almost as easily. I'll never forget JJ: "I'm black! How the heck did I get a sunburn and you didn't?!?!?!"

Sunscreen. The Great Equalizer...

please inform me of where your friends are that I may drum them out of the black people corps.

Nudity, is of course, required.

It's Friday, and time for another one of TS' "Is there a word for this?" topic! And I don't think TVtropes will help with this one.

So in many games, there are these oddball rules that aren't intuitively related to any other rule. In chess each piece has a rule for how it moves, and each turn you can move one piece according to its rule. Except that under certain circumstances, you can move your king and a rook at the same time and in a way that would break their normal movement rules.

In many card games, there are rules for collecting various cards into sets in order to collect points. With the proviso being that each player must achieve an initial threshold of required sets before he or she can begin collecting points.

In Monopoly, you roll the dice to determine how many spaces you move, you do your wheeling and dealing, and then you pass the turn. Except if you roll doubles, then you go again.

In Magic, it used to be that if you ended up with more mana than you could use, that mana 'burned' you for a loss of life.

So my question is: What would you call this class of oddball non-intuitive rules? It is of vital importance that this question be answered. ;)

First word that comes to mind is "exceptions", but I suspect that isn't what you're looking for. Or maybe "special cases"?

Yeah, I like 'special case' rules. :)

I don't see what the problem is.

Tonight I am working third shift. I am not used to staying awake all night and it has been too long since I last stayed up until later than 1 in the night.

I am afraid of my brain disconnecting and doing something stupid.

Thank you Hispanic heritage.

I get sunburns all the time though.

At first I read Hispanic as Spanish but I guess you meant Latin American?
If not, my heritage seems not to be working and needs to be fixed!

My forebears went from the rolling hills of Ireland, the fjords of Sweden, Welsh gibberish and the Transylvanian mountains to the blahs of Midwestern farmlands.

Not sure what happened there.

Short answer: Yes, I think so. I seem to remember that there are mentions of viking raids, on the Northern Spanish coast, during the time of the kingdom of Asturias.

Edit: Nice catch John, might have to take a look.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

In a town called Catoira, a viking raid is simulated all years as a part of a recreational party to remember the viking landing. So yep.

Hey, Kjel. How have you been?


2 people marked this as a favorite.

Mostly fine.
Been busy with work and all the stuff that comes with living in a highly centralised welfare state...but seriously its all first world problems like misfiled taxes and the like. (And I love our Scandinavian welfare state, seriously it couldn't get much better)
Have had a few emotional ups and downs, but nothing compared to *ahem*, what some others have been through.

I kind of feel, it should be me, asking you how you are doing John.

Doing okay, today. Relatively speaking of course. No incapacitating headaches today, or any at all. Which is surprising, given the storm that blew through here earlier. However, it turns out that my Health Insurance is deliberately insufficient. I'd like to think that it was an accident, but I can almost hear the nails being driven into the coffin of a dead career. Putting the source code for all of the programs I've written on Google Docs, so I have a good sample base for a programming career.

Still around... Still not sleepy. We're having a kinda quiet night, but I am counting the time until my brain disconnects and I turn into a zombie.

Hhh-huh. I've been getting really bad headaches in heavy rain, recently. That is... a strange development, all things considered.

EDIT: Makes doing TKD really difficult, some days.

Heh. My wife and I have been having trouble sleeping earlier than 2, and usually closer to ~4 these days. Turns out we're both naturally really nocturnal. Go figure. XD

Hm. On the other hand, most zombie flicks do start with the infection beginning in the hospital...

According to my dad and aunt who researched such things they're distantly related to Vlad The Impaler.

Whether or not that is actually true or not I'll leave to people who care about such things. But it's fun to tell the kids at Halloween. :-)


Good night, John!

A man heard that masturbating before sex could help him last longer, and decided he'd give it a shot. The problem was, he couldn't decide where to do it. He didn't want to do it at the office. He thought about using the lobby restroom, but figured that was too risky. He considered pulling into an alley and doing it there, but thought it wasn't safe. On his way home, he had an idea. He pulled off the road, and slid under his truck like he was working on it. Feeling safe, he took out his 'tool', closed his eyes, and got to work. As he was approaching his climax, he felt someone kick his foot. Not wanting to stop, he kept his eyes closed and yelled "Who is it?" "It's the police. What are you doing?" he heard. He replied "I'm checking my rear axle, I think it may be cracked." The cop said "You might want to check your brakes too. The truck rolled away five minutes ago."

Reason no. 847,632 why I adore my daughter:
She and her brother are in their bedroom with the door closed before bedtime. I ask, "Why aren't you two brushing your teeth?"
She answers, "MOMMY, I'm just trying to get my brother to learn Ancient Greek."

Two salesman knocked on the door of a woman who was very unhappy to see them. She told them in no uncertain terms to go away, and then slammed her door. To her surprise, the door didn't shut, but bounced open. She slammed it again, but the same thing happened. Convinced that one of the salesman had his foot in the door, she reared back to slam the door so hard she would break his foot. Just before she started the slam, one of the men said "Ma'am, before you do that again, you should probably move your cat."

A man goes into a bar and gets drunk. He asks the bartender where the toilet is, and the bartender tells him "Down the hall, third door on the right." The man goes down the hall, but instead goes in the third door on the left. Inside, he finds a large golden toilet, so he does his business, and leaves. He comes back every night for a week, gets drunk, and then drops a deuce in the golden toilet. One night he goes to deliver his nightly load, and finds the room empty. The golden toilet is gone! He goes back to the bar and asks the bartender what happened. The bartender gets very angry and shouts "So you're the one who's been s#%&ting in my kid's tuba!"

You are trapped in a room with a hungry tiger, an angry rattlesnake and a lawyer. You have a gun with two bullets. What do you do?

You shoot the lawyer. Twice.
