Funny, it always reminded me of the insignia of the Black Legion.

Actually, it's the secret Sable Badge. It allows to control pokemans with power level 9000 or greater, and it grants you the ability to bring Aeris back to life. Of course, in order to win it, you have to take on the secret gym leader Solid Snake in a special hide-and-seek minigame. Or help him move.

"Where do you want me to put these boxes?"

"...What boxes?"

"These ones right over- Now that's odd. There was a box here just a second ago."

It was not a cloud plane for Odin's sake, it was just a shadowy flame which hid the creature known as Saithis.

So it's a Creature in the Darkness. But the darkness is on fire?
Heh. That makes no sense, but the sheer absurd awesome of it appeals to my geeky Dethklok-loving, sense-ignoring fanboi gamer side. So, Eggy like. :smallbiggrin:


Also: It turns out being entombed in caramel gives one Katamari-like powers.

I am intrigued by this particularly sticky and delicious sounding interment rite (with its supplementary promises of Katamari-like Mummy powers), and wish to know more. :smallconfused:

For you, a visit to the Cadbury factory should be sufficient. Then, you can become a caramel egg! Of course, you'll have to run from the hordes of Cadbury-egg lovers..

Oh dear. Eggy would probably cannibalize itself.

It was tricky work; I had to pester Saithis for weeks before she'd actually entomb me alive in a coffin of molten caramel. I think it's about the second most delicious way to go :smallbiggrin:
As to the Katamari powers, it becomes very simple. Once your essence is infused with sticky caramel, you can simply run around picking stuff up and sticking it to yourself until you've achieved a ball-like state. From there, you just continue exuding caramel outwards to hold new acquisitions in the growing Caramari.

Just watch out for seawater and cold weather.

I gotta HUGE favor to ask of anyone with a good knowledge of english grammar.


I have an application essay or two that needs some proof reading. And as I am sure you all have seen from my posts here, I need some proof reading. So I beg of you, anyone who is reading this, and has the time and ability, please PM me so I can get the essay to you to proof.


I would love you forever. I might even be suckered into an avatar request, if that is the kind of bribe it took. :smallbiggrin:

The chocloate god is called Cadbur

Cadbury's chocolate is indeed very good. And although I would say that it is the best mainstream chocolate you can buy just about anywhere, there are other, smaller chocolate companies that do produce a better individual chocolate.

My spidey senses started tingling -- someone must've moved off topic banter over into RB!

Behold!


Anyhow, as mainstream/major market chocolate goes Godiva's beats any thing else I've had (Cadbury, Lindt etc) hands down. But small makers are going to typically craft more interesting and fitting (better is such a hard term) chocolates allowing an individual to find their own 'perfect' piece.


And chocolate is not bad for you in the least. Plenty of research studies have proven such. EATING TOO MUCH OF ANYTHING will cause you to gain weight -- especially true of things with a high sugar content.

My grandfather takes half a bar of Dove dark chocolate every night. He calls it his heart medicine. :smallbiggrin:

Having said that, I must agree that Dove dark chocolate is probably my favorite kind. But honestly any dark is good....

Ironically, when I'm offered chocolate, I often choose not to have any. This resulting from my tendancy to not stop eating it once I start...I've learned to simply not start. :smallamused:

Hmmm, supermaket shelf, eh? That pretty much only leaves Hershey in the US. And that's just not fair. So yeah, Dove, Lindt, Cadbury. Take your pick.

Godiva has specialty shops that can be found in pretty much any major mall or boxes in fancier gift shop type places.


That article says that its only dark choc eaten with milk. I speak of choc in general

You are, of course, aware that the difference between dark chocolate and milk and "chocolate in general" (You, as an American, think of milk chocolate as the "general") is just a tremendous amount of sugar, yes?

I still go for the higher quality chocolate. 86% cocoa = euphoria that can almost make me forget about the pains.

EDIT: Oh, and for the record, Godiva is awesome chocolate. My local supermarket in the States did have a shelf of Godiva chocolate near the front, I used to pick it up whenever I had the spare money.

My chocolate shrine consists of one Cadbury Creme Egg (replaced frequently) and one Fazer Mignon egg, the real egg shell carefully emptied of its egginess and replaced with pure goodness. Every so often, he who brought it to me asks when I'm going to eat it. Heathen. There ought to be a sample of Marabou chocolate in the shrine also (replaced infrequently) but their distribution in Ireland is exceptionally streaky. It bemuses the cashier whenever Marabou is located and the entire box brought up to the register.

I once had some root beer, I don't know if it was that or root beer cola or something. It was really weird, but I didn't hate it. I can't remember the taste, though, this was 8 years ago.

Root Beer is a delicious drink. Despite the name, it is a soft drink, and goes excellently with a scoop of ice cream or two.

Dr Pepper IS amazing.

Does anyone else who lives in/has ever been too/ knows what I'm talking about in regards to Montreal know the name of that black cherry cola? I mean, the stuff you traditionally get with your Plate O' Fatty Fatfat (Smoked Meat sandwiches). As far as I know, it's just cherry coke. That's what you ORDER. You don't find it anywhere else (I mean ANYWHERE else(at least that I've found)) and yet it never goes out of business. What IS it? Gaah!

I'm one of those very few Americans who really doesn't care for soft drinks at all. I'll have an occasional sip of rootbeer without protest, but I think coke is the most vile drink known to man, pepsi no better, sprite of the devil...so basically my liquid consumption is...water. Yeah, I know, really exciting and interesting... :smalltongue:

I can't decide if it's the bubbles or the taste that get me. I hate the taste of coke, but I'm not into carbonation, either.

Vonriel
2007-08-06, 11:16 PM
I absolutely love soft drinks. Dunno why. And yet, I can't stand diet drinks - in a recent case, I thought I was actually going to throw up after drinking one - so I'm in sort of a bad boat..

Alarra
2007-08-06, 11:17 PM
It's the carbonation that bugs me. I mean, I'll drink soda, certainly, and like some of it....but given the option, I prefer other drinks and generally don't drink soda at all. I certainly don't have it in my place unless I bought it for someone else.

The Great Skenardo
2007-08-06, 11:21 PM
I kinda like the carbonation. Heck, I even drink soda water from time to time.

The nice part about soda is that if it's really carbonated, you can't really gulp it down. It enforces a slower pace of drinking, unless you want the bubbles to burn your throat.

Thus, I think it would be quite a nice thing if some carbonated beverages existed that weren't sickly sweet. Not quite sure what they'd be, as most people prefer some flavor to offset the bitter sensation that the carbonation gives.

Lianae

I can't stand sparkling water and will only drink it if I'm really really thirsty and it's all that is there. You wouldn't think this is a common occurrence, but there have been several occasions where it's all there was to drink.

Tried shaking the bottle?

Erm...wouldn't shaking the bottle increase the carbonation? Or am I missing something here...

Vonriel
2007-08-06, 11:53 PM
You're missing something. Shaking the bottle undoes the hydrogen bonds which are keeping the carbon dioxide in the liquid form, and causes the fizz you see at the top of sodas and such. So, shaking any carbonated beverage causes the carbonation to go byebye.

Dragonrider

Yeah. And over a sink, if you can help it. Unless you're expecting the mess and are able to close it fast enough, like I try to do..

You know, I've only ever had one soda fizz over on me like that. It was a Mountain Dew, and it only did so because I was extolling the virtue of Mountain Dew in how it never does that. :smalltongue: (See what I mean about being told I'm wrong, Draginrider?)

Yep, but you know, all sodas are malicious and have your worst interests at heart. That's why I avoid them like the plague.

On the other hand, Murphy's Law made it inevitable, whether it was soda or not... Of COURSE it does the opposite of what you say it will. :smalltongue:

Exactly. What is meant by "Osborn's Law" is that the term variable often denotes a fixed value, a value that one is to find by solving the equation, or is otherwise unknown. At the same time, however, the term constant is used to mean an undetermined value which could be just about anything.

:smallamused:

For my birthday dinner last Saturday, my parents took me out to one of the nicest restaurants in town (keeping in mind it's just a little Western town). I wore a skirt. My mom wore a skirt. My dad wore his Utilikilt (which was longer than either of our skirts).

I was like... "Dad, could you be...NORMAL for one evening? Just for me?"

But of course, he can't. I guess I know where I get it. :smalltongue:

What I wanna know is, how come it took till the 20th century to get women (in our country, at any rate) out of skirts and into said tubes of cloth? Do women's legs not get scratched by said thistles?

(Don't make that into something dirty cuz I can see it coming :smallamused:)

Not that I've got anything against skirts, mind, I like skirts, but honestly, when you think practically.... *shakes head*

Skirts are probably easier to make than tubes of cloth. I think the original answer to that question is buried in the mists of Tradition. Probably for greater ease in childbirth? :smallconfused:

Besides, everyday clothing hasn't been motivated solely by practicality for some thousands of years now.
The 19th-century and nowadays spring especially to mind.
"I'm running from predators, but I have to use one hand to hold up my pants! On the other hand, I could probably use my T-shirt as a parachute if I jump off that cliff..."

"Stay back, I know how to tie a Windsor, and I've got a cummerbund and spats besides!"

Wait, you first ask why it took so long for women to get out of skirts, and then wonder why your dad was in a skirt? Something is very odd.

As for why it took so long to get women out of skirts: Men thought that if women wore pants the morals of everybody would go down hill. I have not noticed such, but I am less than half a century old. Maybe the morals of everybody went down the tubes 40 years ago, and I didn't notice. At any rate, women wearing tight pants look really good.:smallamused:

You know, the ancient Greeks thought the Persians were effeminate because they wore pants and beards...
Anyway, I suspect that if you look carefully, behind all that damnable Victorian era uber-prudishness, you'll find a lot of pants-wearing females through history.

Also, the people who assemble these chats tend to lift MSN info from people's profiles when it's shown

Chances are, you could get in by PMing...

Who starts these things, anyway? I want to say "Alarra", but it's not always her, I don't think.

Usually, on MSN, it's Alarra, I think. On AIM, I'm pretty certain ootschat has always been there. There's always someone in it, even if they aren't talking (Yes, Neo|Phyte, this one's directed at you :smalltongue: ) The ootschat just.. is. :smallbiggrin:

Anyways, I have been wondering, why have people begun to feel the need to tell us that they won't be able to post more than once a day or so?

They're the mods. It IS propoganda. Hell, I use propoganda all the time. And...in this case...no, it didn't have to be told. At all.

Thes, they say it because somewhere in their minds they have the misassumption people care. That's the same misassumption that leads to, say, marriage, dates, advertisements, me, russian nesting dolls, yaknow the works.
We're under the same misassumption. We think we care. But we don't, because I'm A, always right, and B, a solipsist. So ha.
