My family has holiday liberal pissing contests, wherein they all try to talk over or through each other to see who's the most liberal liberal.

Having lived in Seattle for five years I can say definitively that none of them are.

I know, right? And then there are the birds being loud...some of them don’t even wait for the sun to come up. Mourning doves at four in the freaking morning...grr... actually those birds are annoying whether it’s the school year when I have to get up at six or whether it’s summer and I just went to bed at three....stupid doves....

Fellow Pokemon fans! Check this out if you haven't already!

I am LOVING the potential this thing is showing to be a suitable contender against Nintendo's increasingly-becoming-stale product - on their own console, even! - and bring some much-needed competition and monopoly-breaking to the creature-collecting-RPG genre. Really hoping it all works out!

In case anyone is interested I've been working on a satirical youtube channel in which a rabbit fur I happened to have found in a box after moving and named Rufus "reacts" to games, and hopefully some actual videos.

A watch, or some helpful comments might be appreciated, but keep in mind this channel will likely only ever air 50 videos in total.
Subbed, will watch tomorrow.

Thanks, I gave some advice on what to watch on it already, and I still feel that that's solid.

The crazy part is, that was some seriously overgrown forest, with the nearest neighbors a half mile away.

And it wasn't like one or a few artfully placed to maximize privacy, it was a solid hedge, right up against the woods, so much so the forest side of the arborvitae were completely dead from a complete lack of sunlight.

And deerand bears love tearing apart arborvitae!

Negligent landscaping, my newest pet peeve.

I have curtains, but that d!ckhole sun gets into my room anyway. One of these days I'm going to take a staple-gun to those curtain edges.

True. Personally I just layer a couple of flat sheets together to use as curtains. If one of the sheets is a dark color, you’re all set! Also flat sheets cost a lot less than curtains :)

Pretty much this.

The kids all roll their eyes when I say it, but habitual laziness is not an easy switch to flip. Turning in barely-acceptable final products is not going to make any positive impact on professors or employers, and the children who insist that they will simply "start caring later" are also the children who give me no indication that they have the slightest idea of how to care at all. I hope for their sakes that they're right, that they can just suddenly start putting forth effort for quality output. But...sigh

If it was truly knowing how the system worked, they'd understand that they at least need to grind some XP along the way if they don't want to end up getting absolutely wrecked by reality...

I love he metaphor and will definitely be using that the next time the kidlet complains about homework! You can get through six bajillion fetch quests to build your super cool armor, you can get through a page of math problems. ;)

It does plan to include a single-player story campaign, which can also be done co-op (in person or online) if you so desire. I'm in the same boat of not being hugely interested in the MMO aspect of it, but the single-player or two-player story campaign is right up my alley and that's on top of wanting to support the new IP and shake up the genre a little.

Personally, I love the idea of revisiting Kanto, but I understand that that's not everyone's cup of tea. To me, It'll be a fun trip down a new 3-d version of a region I already have fond memories off, but discovering a new take on the genre should be fun as well.

If anything, I'm a bit concerned about some trademark/copyright issues looking at a few of the temtems. (one of them looks a bit like a snow-drake from undertale)

I thought it was links but links don't appear to be the issue. Cover Turtle you really should go to an optometrist to get your left eye checked, dashing as an eye patch may look.

It could be cataracts, glaucoma and possibly other stuff that if left untreated, could cost you vision in that eye.

Pokemon/Temtem prolonged discussion:
Also, and this isn't a complaint, but rather an observation, I also notice they seem a bit more on the cute side than may be advisable.
That's not really a problem in and of itself, but part of the secret of pokemon's success was to have both men and women play an intricate part in the design of the pokemon. To me this is fascinating, as the woman on staff would create the "cuter" pokemon, such as pikachu, and evee, whereas the men on staff played a greater role in charizard, and venasaur, yet, it was both the "cute" and "cool" pokemon that drew in the crowds, and caused the universal success that everyone knows of today.

So anyway, I guess what I'm trying to say is, that everything having the softer tone, may not have the desired effect that they want, and since I too want healthy competition in this genre I adore, I hope that this observation is mostly due to a lack of spoilers on their kick-starter page

I know this does happen but hearing about it is so weird to me. As an overachieving perfectionist I tended to encounter either other overachievers or the ones who just didn’t get it for some reason and needed help. I spent a lot of time in high school and college tutoring other students. I just never interacted with the ones who didn’t care, so I have a hard time understanding the mindset behind that

You hung out with the wrong kids, and were never a teacher. :-P

Seriously. I'd guess 60-70% of my graduating class in high school fell into that category.

as an antiauthoritarian, i must say those numbers are off, if only because my spanish teachers and my math teachers would have differing opinions of me, my work ethic, and my school career.

It really bothers me that we as a culture have come to just accept mediocrity. I can tie a lot of it to a growing reliance on instant gratification - there simply seems to be an overall lack of ability to accept a later and better product at the cost of getting something inferior now. There's also the "somebody else's problem" effect. We all know someone will care enough to do the thing properly, so why should everyone do so? But when more and more people buy into that, we get a tragedy of the commons.

And some people care. I accept Truitt & White's impossible business hours because their stuff is simply so much better than the ACE or Home Depot crap that you can't comprehend it until you try it.

For example, I paid $12 for fifty (50) 2.5" screws. That's ridiculously expensive for screws. But oh my goodness the first time I used one and it effortlessly bored into the wood as if it wasn't even there I thought, "Well, crap. I'm never buying any other kind of screw ever again!"

My pry bar is my favorite story: T&W had an $8 Chinese-made pry bar, and an absolutely-identical $18 U.S.-made one. They were even painted the same color with the same highlights.
Being me, I bought the $18 one.
And it has survived far more abuse than any pry bar should ever have to in its existence, and is still going strong. One of my best tool purchases ever.

But yeah, it's a HUGE PITA to get to Truitt & White, but every time I try buying something at a major chain it never fails to utterly disappoint.

Live and learn.

Sometimes you just need to pay for quality (and not just the monetary sense, may require you to go to some obscure industrial estate, and you has no car).

How very civilized of you! :)

The squirrels near campus are very aggressive. Too many students are scared of them and will toss food to get them to go away. The squirrels that live near our apartment have figured out that we provide regular food, so instead they come and press their noses up against the glass and squeak with jealousy when they see the kitties playing with toys. They too would like some toys, pretty please, big-eyes-cute-face... but then if someone has snacks in the courtyard they scamper off to get new munchies :)

Im a 41/42.

Also, dont worry. I am confused with you about those sizes.

U.S. sizes get even better: They vary by manufacturer.

Our itty-bitty choir director put it best: She wears anywhere between a size 00 and a size 6, depending on the store. (She's roughly Scint size; maybe 5'1", and possibly breaks 100 pounds, but only when wet.)

I don’t think shoes come in 00? They go from child’s size 13 to women’s size 1?

Of course clothing sizes are meaningless but there is at least a little consistency in shoes

I think that was the moment I stopped thinking of "gold" or "platinum" membership levels as status symbols.

Now, if there were a "gold-pressed latinum" membership level, that I would consider.

as an aside, I will be issuing gold pressed latinum as use for currency within the abscondi-cave. Use it for everything and anything, from ice cream sundaes to massages or just plain throwing at the tv when your sports team loses/you discover your show is being cancelled/the fictional character you are in a relationship with carries on with that guy/gal on screen instead of leaving them for you(which is by far the wiser option).

Note that these gold pressed latinum pieces will have my picture on them, and be worthless outside of the abscondi-cave.

I am also having a full bar and grill installed. I am in the process of hiring reasonable facsimiles of all the Doctors to act as bartenders, each of whom will know how to make their signature number drink.

The real question is do you also rock a super sweet cape as a fashion statement?

Well, I have two separate instances that indicate the delicacy of grading:

In my undergraduate years at U.C. Berkeley I had an upper-division Quantum Mechanics class that was graded on a full curve, and taught by a man who I'm sure was brilliant, but who had no business whatsoever teaching students. His lectures were incomprehensible, and the book had nothing to do with what he taught.

So most of us just skipped class and only showed up to the tests. I learned nothing whatsoever. Seriously. I just drew a few doodles, rewrote the problems, and made some random mathematical stuff that had nothing to do with the problem. Yet partial credit got me to a whopping 28% in the class.

Which was a B+.

Not only did I pass a class in which I learned nothing, but I got an above-average grade due to excessive curving.

On the other hand, in my final year as a math professor I had an integral calculus class that seriously didn't give a s***. Out of 44 students, 4 of them were turning in homework. I gave them sample tests with solutions that were essentially exact copies of the real tests, and yet averages on those tests were in the 40's.

So 2/3 of the class was failing. And they filed a complaint against me. And won. And I was ordered to pass at least 2/3 of the class, whether or not they demonstrated any ability whatsoever to do any of the problems.

So I resigned, got picked up by a tech company, and that was all she wrote.

i would love to hear something from the side of the students, if only out of a sense of fairness. While I have encountered teachers so hated that the majority of the class had no problem tanking their gpa to stick it to that professor in the name of vengeance, I have a VERY hard time seeing Nobodyshome as one of those professors.

Then again, he DOES teach math. And out of that same sense of fairness, I have yet to encounter an entire class that was as awful as the teacher said they were-

...

i wish I could remember.
