If I attach a bungie cord to a fish, could I sell it to people as an authentic codpiece.

Do you know of any YouTube channels that we could learn how to preform open heart surgery.

We're asking for a friend.

Interesting.

It is interesting. Also, this does not relate to the mental state of people.

Yes, though no one will want to use it if they know where it's been (presupposing it survives the journey).

captain yesterday wrote:

Neither, as paint is toxic.

I am certain there are people out there with enough money to actually purchase this just for the joke.

As a friend, I must recommend against your "friend" performing open heart surgery without specialized training and a solid, reliable memory - get someone who is more well-trained and widely acknowledged to have better training and skill. If it is an emergency, posting on a forum is a bad idea - it takes people too long to get back to you. Instead, if (and only if) it is an emergency, call 911 (if you are in the USA; other countries may or may not have the same emergency number).

captain yesterday wrote:

It highly depends on the social circle you are asking and their intentions. For my purposes, it does not make you look phat, and it only makes you look fat if it is realistic; otherwise, it only looks "fake fat."

You can, but I virtually guarantee you're going to get the wrong kind of customers and probably arrested.

How about people who can't quite figure out what all those funny lines in the parking lot mean?

Sure, let's just park on the striped area and stick out into the driving lane a little. Or straddle 2-4 spots, because my vehicle is special/unscratchable/too big.

Black Hat Guy and Ponytail Girl are the heroes we need. Just... not too close by. They tend toward collateral damage.

It annoys me that my brothers insist no one bring dishes for the christmas feast.

It wouldn't be so bad if they knew how to cook.

And i spent fifteen years as a chef and professional baker! Paul McCartney loved my pies and you're seriously telling me NOT to bring pies...

Adding more to my "why I avid MMOs" list.

*writes down Enrage Mode bosses next to PvP and Story Always Sucks*

This is a valid reason to avoid them, however:

The bosses are simply not able to be solo'd in many cases; the idea is to foster teamwork and investment into the mechanics; while this certainly isn't the cuppa of everyone, the point is to function like a puzzle for a whole team of people to work on together. Usually, there is a size limit of some sort (generally semi-arbitrary, but often built for system and server limitations, as well as "optimal party experience" based on lots of customer feedback and play-testing) which means you need to create a well-coordinated strike force - high DPS, solid tanking, big heals, solid status-affliction, and so on. This is actually one of the stronger appeals, and even appeals to me (at least on an intellectual level): it's a clever puzzle with a group dynamic that requires figuring out one of the many, many different (if the game is done well) and equally-valid methods of overcoming the super-sized bosses.

Also, though I have had zero experience with it, myself, I understand FF14:aRR doesn't have PvP outside of specific, entirely optional areas with all rewards exclusively being the PvP stuff, and I have been assured that it actually has a really good story, favorable even compared to "standard" FFs, at least lately. I'd say "that's no stretch" or something equally "witty" but... I've not played anything since X-2, so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ (Also, I've not played FF14, so... salt, grains, etc.)

Disclaimer: I do not, myself, play MMOs. I like having what can loosely be defined as a "life" and feel certain that I would not, if I found a really good one.

Why does that annoy you? They're just showing appreciation for your question. I'm just curious, not judging.

Depending on the context, it can have an implied level of condescension. Usually not a problem, but it could mean you're acting like a teacher to someone who doesn't feel like being treated like a student.

At least that's what I notice.

Gah! Shell pasta annoys me. I was just making some in the microwave (i is know how cook!) and I took it out to see if it was soft enough to eat yet, when a burning hot noodle glued itself to my lip! That was less than perfectly enjoyable.

That all anyone plays is medieval european high fantasy. It represents a fraction of all fictional possibilities, but I can't find any damn groups that play anything else.

Mind you, in my area I can't find groups at all, but I can't even get a decent virtual group with that.

And PbP just...I'm not loving the interface. At all.

I'm really feeling modern horror lately. Like Dresden Files or World of Darkness or the like. Legend of the Five Rings is also one I adore but only played for a couple months. I also have a spot in my heart for supers, but there aren't many great systems for that.

Really I'm just tired of D&D after all these years...and PF is just D&D with a different coat of paint.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I don't think I'll ever get tired of the classic quasi-medieval settings, though I would love to try others as a GM and a player. But my players all want to stay in a setting similar to that instead. As far as supers go we occasionally play DC Heroes now (it used to be a weekly thing for us prior to 2000). In truth, I've played very few games and systems compared to most gamers, so I'd love to try something new.

If you're interested in Signal of Screams, the current Starfinder AP I can look into virtual table tops or whatever.

Starfinder just doesn't ring my bell. Neither did Spelljammer back in the day. I guess if I wanted interstellar travel I'd have played more Star Wars or learned to even marginally like FASA's Star Trek RPG.

Starfinder is actually quite like Star Wars (no surprise there Owen KC Stephens worked on the Star Wars d20 rpg).

Not necessarily. There may be a few super-genius-outliers that balance out a lot of somewhat-stupid people. I know there's the assumption that intelligence is a normal bell curve distribution, but we also adjust testing for changes in modern society, and that means it has to adjust for overall drops in intelligence.

I think for every genius we have a few thousand "I think playing the Lotto is a good idea" folks. The mean remains average, but the mode...I'd be willing to guess the mode IQ in America is like 80.
