There once was an archer named Ely,
Whose darts were unpleasantly smelly.
She said, with a shiver,
'That isn't a quiver'
When pulling them out of R. Kelly.

Overheard in Limey's office part VI:

'We had a pact! I was going to kill my husband, and then we were going to open a cattery together!'

EDIT: Britain's only Nudist Cattery.

Ah, parenthood!

I got CC'ed on an e-mail from Bacon Boy this morning, along the lines of:
"OK, we're all gathering at Impus Major's house on Friday at 1:00 pm for a 12-hour bad movie marathon! And since we didn't do K1 this year, it'll be my birthday party as well!"

So yep. About a dozen 17-year-olds planning a HUGE 12-hour party at my house... WITHOUT TELLING ME ABOUT IT!!!

Had Bacon Boy not thought to CC: me, I would have just locked the door on Friday.

As it is, negotiations have begun...

I don't like sweating, but it's apparently one of the skills human got that makes them so unbalanced race to play.

Huh... Does that mean that elves sweat less or don't sweat at all?

Does that mean that dwarves and gnomes sweat even more? (though in case of dwarves it would be impractical in underground conditions, maybe they have other heat emission solution?)

Yesterday I woke up at 8am after getting in at 3:30, then I went out and picked up breakfast for Aiymi and Zelda. I was sore and tired, but not horribly so. My feet were the worst of it.

Today is different. Today is awful. Today I feel like I'm just going to collapse into a pile of meat. As if my body was processed by a butcher, but still holding together...and then will just fall apart into the individual butcher cuts as I walk down the hall. Or just sit here. Stairs...holy crap stairs...

But to much lesser degree than humans - they, like majority of mammals don't use sweating as primary form of thermal regulation.

Interestingly, horses do. I didn't know that.

Aaaaaaaand home. Yes, just now. Well, minus fifteen minutes, but still.

Accurate.

(17 hours including all stops - it was supposed to be only 9 of drive time, but construction, bathroom, food, and just “staying awake” stops added 8 additional hours.)

Since I'm at the office the likelihood of that happening is close to zero. I've got a lady upstairs wearing *eye surgery dark sunglasses* complaining about "issues with her monitor dimming". I'm trying to explain that it's her sunglasses, but she's absolutely not listening. One of my techs goes up there and sees nothing abnormal happening with her monitor. He leans over to check the cables, and the instant he leans over the monitor she goes "There! It's happening right now!" He hadn't actually touched anything.

Right.

Ok.

So when someone casts a shadow you're claiming your monitor is dimming.

Ok.

And this is what NH means by "so freakin' out there that she must work at Vany's company".

That is why they roll in mud.

Both pigs and canines are incapable of sweat.
Dogs can sweat on their feet pads.

Nope you got it; they were undead zombies. The party has both a healer mage and a paladin, but the greedy Ely rushed 30+ spaces ahead of the party in order to loot the zombie she saw. By the time any of them were within firing distance, she was zombie chow.

The large eyebrows of those races indicate a large amount of forehead sweat.

Elven ears would provide a good cooling method except in the hottest of rainforests.

These videos are hilarious, and yeah, persistence hunting is the perfect example of dirty power gaming: We humans took an understated perk that was meant just to keep us cool in tropical environments, turned it into an OP tactic against high-level animals, and then leveled up to the point where we dominate the game/planet.

Eyebrows could alternatively be responsible for protecting eyes from dust and dirt falling on them from the ceiling of their underground tunnels.

Jungle elves would have bigger ears than arctic elves...

This also explains that night elves living in warmer Kalimdor have bigger ears than sun elves...

Halflings are the real wild card in this sweat discussion, since their feet are unable to sweat, which is the most sweaty part of every other species in the homo genus, for minor cooling purposes.
of course the smaller stature may mean an increased average body temperature anyway, but even in small homo sapiens, this is not noticeable.

He forgot to mention that the ranks we neglected to place in olfactory skills we min-maxed into our eyes giving us one of the most op of eye builds, with such color contrast that we could distinguish between fifty+ shades of every color if we had a word for it, this proves especially useful in identifying most poisons and therefore giving all sorts of boosts on foraging. Not to mention our far and near sight capabilities, unheard of in most other player builds.

That's what most of the traps are. Trapdoors that lead to dragons. Dragons with no hoards. Very angry dragons, who need a good start on a new hoard.

We may be onto something, but we've got to devise a plan on how to get the dragon to know his trap didn't go off.

Yes. She's wearing sunglasses because the building upgraded the fluorescent fixtures in that area of the office (lower energy daylight bulbs) and she's been complaining about that ever since.

[unsourced "biology"] Elves don't sweat out toxins, or even poop very much. However, when they are away from non-elves, they cough up large castings/pellets. If humans knew this, I suspect there'd be far fewer half-elves. [/"biology"]

Halflings, being Small, have a larger surface area to volume ratio, so that helps with cooling. [unsourced "biology"] Likewise, they have additional lung gyri, which increases their effective heat exchange during respiration (and interestingly, also increases the effectiveness of substances like halfling pipeweed). The real secret, however, is the hollow hairs on their feets, which act as heat exchange pipes to shed additional heat into the surrounding air. [/"biology"]
