My favorite is definitely, "True Facts about the octopus".

His entire monologue about how the interestingness of a creature is proportional to how hard to find its butt is side-splitting.

EDIT: The kids found, "True Facts about Morgan Freeman", then we watched, "True Facts about the Sea Pig", and at that point we were hooked. Too bad ZeFrank got a real paying job. He was awesome!

NSFW tags make me laugh. Maybe if you're worrid about what you watch at work, you should do your f*+%ing job instead of watching videos on the clock? :-P

One day I want to link a bunch of straight-up porn to people with tags that they're Totally Safe For Work.

I won't. But I want to.

Every character Tiny T-Rex plays must now be a Pyrokineticist named Jack.

I call it The Yoon Effect, basically, every kid sees Yoon and says "that's me"

So, I purpose they have Wayne Reynolds do a version of the iconics as children. :-)

If only so I'm not overwhelmed by Kineticists. :-D

Our resident "problem player" is at it again!

The party had to flee a city into the wilderness with a price on their head. He's playing a wizard.

So he's trying to work out with me the logistics of teleporting back to the city, getting spells to copy into his spellbook, and teleporting back to the party.

I first pointed out that
(a) He wouldn't be able to return to a moving party, and
(b) Anyone who saw him would turn him in.

His immediate response, "I'll do it at night, and I'll have the head of the wizarding academy set up a scry-proof room for me."

So I asked him why on Golarion the head of a prestigious wizarding academy would risk execution for treason for him.

He was offended.

*SIGH*

EDIT: And as usual, even in the kids game I could just play it out, have his PC arrested and executed, have him roll up a new PC and be done with it. But this guy would explode. And it's a "social obligation" game (our penance or something), so my hands are tied in that regard. I keep encouraging the other players to quit so we can be done with him, but they say they're having fun in spite of him, so we carry on...

It used to be the best, at least to us. Free checked bags, good prices. Now this is the second time she has had flight troubles, first getting out to PaizoCon and now this. I want to be understanding, but the secondhand info she was texting me about how they were handling it was not inspiring faith.

That's actually something they're addressing in the upcoming anniversary edition, so if it helps, it's not just your problem player that's taken issue with that.

Holy s##@, it got hot quick! We had some late morning storms just pass to our north, so I was hopeful it wouldn't get as hot as they were saying.

Then I nodded off for an hour and awoke in a pool of my own sweat. :-/

Ever since 9/11 I've avoided flying if at all possible (issues with the TSA and its ludicrously ineffective-but-intrusive methods rather than fear of incidents, but now I'm getting political so I'll stop).

The once-every-couple-of-years I've flown, I've always used Southwest for exactly those reasons: Low fares, free checked bags, friendly staff.

And I've noticed the same thing: The staff are getting surlier and surlier, the flights are late more and more often, and the other passengers... *shudder*. What's so hard about, "Your bag must fit within this space and you or a member of your party must be able to lift it into the overhead bin?"

Every time I see a petite, 105-pound woman carrying enough bags to fill the Brady Bunch's station wagon, carefully explaining the convoluted rules exceptions that allow her to carry ALL of them onto the plane, and then requiring two airline staff and a fellow passenger to help her get them all tucked away, I want to scream quite a few unpleasant things.

(It's not just small women with tons of bags -- businessmen are right up there with them because they have an equal number of bags, but can't be bothered to put their phones down long enough to use both hands to put 'em away. I swear, people complain about families with kids. At least most of the beleaguered parents I see on planes are TRYING to get their stuff out of the way as quickly as possible, with some exceptions...)

Cyz and I travel light. The most I bring is one rolling suitcase for gaming stuff.

And of course my bag of holding.

The only thing I ever carry onto a plane is my laptop.

I flew, once.

Once was enough.

Of course the exhilaration of realizing you lived through it after touching down is pretty hard to replicate.

I had a good ride on a C-130. Getting woken up when my arse began floating above the bench was interesting. Hot in there however.

My best flight ever was a turboprop from Chicago to Flint, Michigan in a snowstorm.

It was a cramped little plane, I had a window seat, and as soon as we were airborne I looked down and saw that the ground below us was moving absolutely perpendicular to the plane. I asked the flight attendant, "Is that normal?" and she responded, "Oh, in a storm like this? Absolutely!"

Reassuring? Not so much...

My worst flight ever was a Turkish airlines flight from Istanbul to Hanover. We got to around 4000' over the Bosphorus (why goes Google Maps now say it's in Russia?). Power cut out and we plummeted in free fall for 3000'. I was sitting there thinking, "Oh, well. I guess today's the day I'm going to die." I was rather stoic about it. Guess you're more accepting when you know there's nothing you can do about it. I thought about the people who would miss me, felt a bit sad...
...and the engines cut in and allowed us to level out at maybe 500'. The plane limped and sputtered back to the airport, with nothing beyond, "Due to technical difficulties, we are returning to Istanbul International."

It took 6 hours to get a new plane. I didn't complain.

I haven't flown Turkish Airlines since.

Mine was a ho hum February flight from Seattle to Chicago, quite routine. But as someone with a life long fear of heights, a life long reader of newspapers and someone that saw far too many plane crash movies, it was one of the scariest moments in my life, equaled only by the return flight to Seattle from Chicago. :-)

Yep. Some of us are cheap and don't want to spend more for a ticket we already shelled out the wazoo for, and others of us just get tired of the incompetent employees losing our bags and sending them to another city.

When Cyz's flight got canceled yesterday, they gave her a run around about how her bags would be going to Pittsburg. I still don't know what the hell that was all about, but we got them back in the end. First time I've had that problem.

Tornado warnings have been declared!

So far only sighting is by Beaver Dam, but it's a pretty angry storm, so they can pop up anywhere.

Definitely one of those times I wish the Pillow Fort had a basement.
