Gotta love the teenage unrelated but totally related questions that lead to destruction.

"Is this the potato soup from last night" "yes"

A few minutes pass...

"Can you use paper plates in the microwave?"

"Do NOT use a paper plate to heat up soup in the microwave!"

Oh, don't get me started on kids and food. Impus Minor is formally forbidden from opening *anything* in the kitchen due to his tendency to check for something, see it's half-empty, and open a new one.

I could start a whole thread on, "Why I don't like my kids going into the kitchen..."

Evidently Pea Bear is the "classic rock" music fan in her group. Because she loves The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

A single tear slides down his cheek, as he realizes he's now "old", immediately vows no one shall step in his lawn without withering criticism.

Of course, I could always get a convertible...

You should do this!

Alchemist. If there was some sort of device-creation/fix-it guy (outside of wizard), he'd be that, instead. Unfortunately, there's no PF Artificer. So... 3.5 Artificer with XP-pool updated to <XP-value>x5 = gold value for creating magic items?

Neither. It means... you want a yard full of children. Which is cool!

I don't have any vampire chickens... There is a flock of wild turkeys that visits my yard. But they don't eat people, they do like bread crumbs. I could let the children feed bread to the wild turkeys, that sounds fun.

Amazing how times have changed.

Back in the 1970's or 1980's, every spice rack had an old, unused, oft-neglected jar of MSG for putting in various dishes (soups, stews, etc.)

I have a *fantastic* beef jerky recipe that calls for 2/3 tsp. MSG per pound of beef. So I wandered over to the wonderful corner store, run by wonderful Koreans, and couldn't find any MSG. I asked one of the owners, and he laughed out loud. "You can't sell MSG to Americans! Don't you know that? It would be a waste of shelf space!"

I was both amused that he didn't consider me an "American" (tubby old white guy. Wonder what I *am*, then?), and that I have to wander the half mile up to Andronico's to get myself some MSG.

(And if you really want to make this thread explode, check out the research on people who claim to be MSG-sensitive. As usual, the group that is actually reactive is a tiny, tiny percentage of those who claim to be...)

EDIT: On the other hand, Hi's player is an absolutely-reliable MSG detector. We buy random foods and eat them. On occasion, he gets a massive headache and collapses. We check the ingredients. MSG. The stuff really does have a nasty effect on people who ARE reactive...

Thanks Nobodyshome, because of the turn your stealth attack thread jack took, I have the overriding urge to create Toonfinder, pathfinder for playing toons.

"Did you see that guy disappear behind that pillar! Magic? No... Stealth check!"

Now I gotta come up with anvil damage and reflex saves...

Any particular reason why not use Toon RPG for it? Or are you just in designing mood?

Okay, seriously, I have shaved my friends list on Facebook down to less than 50 people, and I still have to put up with idiots sharing clickbait without fact checking.

Snopes takes literally one minute. ONE! Even if you never heard of Snopes, the words "fact check" in Google and then following the subsequent links probably equate to three minutes.

I kicked a cousin to the curb for this garbage. She kept putting up clickbait, and I'd be there with the first comment, with a Snopes link on why it was BS and reminding her to not believe everything she read, and to fact check.

Eventually I had to sever the connection. I can't have the world abroad know we share 12.5% of the same DNA. F$&~ that mess.

Now I see it when friends of my friends share that crap on their timeline, and I get to play the same game so my not-ignorant friends are not tainted by their ignorant ass friends that once were mine but were dropped like a hot potato for this b!*+&%##.

Seriously, ignorance in 2016 has no excuse. If you don't know something, it's because you don't want to. There was an excuse 20 years ago. There is not now. You have all of the collective data of the first world in your pocket with a rechargeable battery and a signal that will work in every major city - you can find anything out you want at any time. You can't say "I don't know" - all you can say is "I don't know yet" or "I don't care."

Please don't think I actually think you're crazy. I think sometimes when I'm trying to be funny I come across as really mean...Also it's weird that it censored "bat" in "bat s@*%" when they're put together as one word.

Wait a minute.

I have kids, they're often in the yard.

Does that make me b$%!~++ crazy. Or crazy for bat s#@&. Cause, you know, there's a lot you can do with bat s!#&.

I was going to just favorite this, but one favorite isn't enough.

Yes yes yes yes YES!!!!!

Even Impus Minor knows how to fact-check things.

If you're passing things on because you believe them and you're over the age of 10...

Did you ever feel like, maybe everyone else (i.e. extended family) is a half a week off. And maybe they should get their s+~! together. Instead of yourself.

I'm just going to keep telling myself that. F#$+ em (metaphorically).

Why yes, my family DID plan something on Facebook, then didn't email me until last week Thursday.

And then from the emails I assumed it was last weekend, but it was this weekend. So now both weekends are screwed up.

Why yes, I was planning to take Pea Bear to see Civil War as a cool movie father daughter bonding experience. Which we're doing anyway.

I f*!#ing hate Facebook. At least when it's the only focus. Email is still a thing people do last I checked.

That explains it. Anytime there's a box I can check/uncheck to avoid possible spam messages, I will check/uncheck it immediately. I probably did it when I set up the account and never looked back.

Not sure how available it is in your area, but there is a brand of "Flavor Enhancer" called Accent that can be found around here. It's MSG labeled as a low-sodium salt replacement.

I don't. I unfriend, biological relatives included.

As I said, I'm down to less than 50 people, out of pretty much everyone I've met in my life, whom I'm willing to put up with.

I'm too old to voluntarily associate with willing idiocy and purposeful ignorance.

The following is based on the information provided and may very well be wrong based upon lack of context, so do take it with a grain of salt:

So, basically you're saying everyone else voluntarily agreed on a common and easy means of communication that you arbitrarily refuse involvement in, and they all need to change because of it to accommodate your refusal?

Occam's Razor might disagree with that.

I know; how dare they provide an entirely free, voluntary service like that, wherein you can provide as little or as much information as you feel comfortable with, knowing in advance exactly whom you're sharing it with when you click those boxes labeled "who am I allowing to see this?"

It's almost like they're hiding their sinister designs from people, what with their terms and conditions you can and are quirte plainly and pointedly made to read if you didn't feel like just clicking and ignoring the content of.

The bastards!

To point out a seeming contradiction? Nothing I did was intended to insult, and I made sure to open with a disclaimer that I didn't have all the information. Based on the information you provided, that's the logical emotion free result. I'm sorry if I'm missing something key here.

Is there a button for not sharing the data with the government, various companies, international entities, law enforcement organizations, etc?

Is there any sort of transparent routine to show that this is enforced?

If no to either, be careful and draw your own conclusions.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber

Which is as nice as I can be on that. I did flag it though.

Facebook is another way my family can keep me out of the loop and not communicate with me.

YOU REALIZE I MOVED MY ENTIRE FAMILY FROM SEATTLE BACK TO WISCONSIN BECAUSE OF THOSE F$~@ER PIECES OF S@#&. HAVEN'T MOVED IN ELEVEN YEARS. AND YET THE ONLY TIME THEY CAN BOTHER OR EMAIL OR CALL, IS THREE DAYS BEFORE ONE OF THEM HAS A THING GOING ON.

So, no, I'm not going on Facebook, JUST to communicate with my f!!&ing family, because I have literally jumped through every other g#~#~$n hoop they throw out there for me to be a part of their lives.

Besides, it's no bother calling each other. Just me, the ONE brother that hasn't changed his phone number in eleven years.


Terms and Conditions are pretty transparent. As I said, most people tend to ignore those, but that's not the fault of a company who makes it prerequisite to use.

I hear whar you're saying, and that's a valid reason to abstain, but it's not exactly a secret.


Wow, worthy of a flag? I suppose fool me twice. I'm sorry to have been so grossly offensive by suggedting something as outrageous as "based on the information you've given, that may not be the simplest explanation." I understand you're clearly a bit touchy on that particular issue. My fault for trying to have a simple conversation on the internet, take a contrary view, and hope nobody would be offended. Good day.


In other, different news, I've outlined a thing in my thread that I'm running. Fun!

Go mock me there, or something!
