    Default TaiLiu's Tea-Filled Tome of Random Banter #193

    My comrades crowd into
    My little house.
    They are all served a tiny cup
    Of tea.
    Ah! What a wonderful smell!

    How To Random Banter:
    Rules of the Random Banter Thread

    Spoiler
    Show
    1. Spam. For the purposes of RB, one word posts are generally considered spam. Likewise, posts that are nothing but *actions like this* are also be considered spam. Remember that the quality of the post's content is much better than the speed of your response.

    2. This isn't the Play by Post or Town forum, nor is it the Silly Message Board Games or Structured Games forum. Please avoid continuous roleplay or mock battles and fights such as the "competition for control of the universe".

    3. If it's already a thread, don't bring it to RB. RB has such a huge range of subject matter even restricted to the little snippets that probably don't warrant their own thread, it doesn't need legitimate thread topics cluttering it up as well. The exception to this is to bring something that is off-topic from one thread, but on-topic for RB and the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own.

    4. Don't advertise other threads in RB. Just because these new threads move at speeds more appropriate to a message board than an IM session doesn't mean you need to come over to RB and brow beat people into posting in your latest brainchild.

    5. Please don't post single line posts alerting us to your current status -- as in "I'm back." This is Random Banter, not "How to stalk Random GitP forum members."

    6. Don't poke, kick or bump the thread. It will move at whatever pace it wants to. Also, please refrain from Captain Obvious comments akin to "My, the thread is fast today."

    7. Random Banter can only be as good, or as entertaining, as you make it. Demands to be entertained will fall on deaf ears unless you can add something more meaningful to the conversation.

    8. As this is a public forum, where the current topic is nicely recorded for you, and not a conversation where you could have missed the beginning, please refrain from asking something to the effect of "What's the topic?". Please take the time to read up a bit first.

    9. Thread Creator must include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread #. Try to be concise as well.

    10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences, Subject and Predicate. C'mon, make your old English teachers proud.

    11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a back and forth discussion with just one person, look in their contact information for IM details.

    12. Whenever a new thread is created, all "first post", "first page", and all posts of that nature will be deleted by the administrators. Please avoid doing this, as it is frustrating for them to deal with one-lined posts like this.

    13. Double-posting is not your friend. We have edit buttons for a reason.

    14. Once you have made a Random Banter thread, you must wait 50 threads before making another one.

    15. If you can avoid dibs calling on making the next thread, that will avoid people needing to wait if the thread hits 50 pages while the dibs-caller is asleep.


    So, without further ado: post! (Did I miss anything?)

    mmmmmm........ thread.

    So. Dairy Queen is now serving Blizzards IN WAFFLE CONES. The only problem I ever had with Blizzards was that I had to get them in a cup, which (to me at least) doesn't taste as good, and you waste ice cream that way. But now? BLIZZARD IN A WAFFLE CONE. This is kinda a big deal for me.

    We don't have a Dairy Queen. We did by the guy intentionally run it poorly to get like, tax breaks or something like that. Point is we don't have one and that makes me sad.

    THAT'S HORRIBLE!
    And probably illegal. But do you at least have an awesome local ice cream shoppe to make up for it? I mean, most places have one of those. Even Hackensack and Fountain here in Minnesota have those, and their combined total population is under 1000. Even larger places like Rochester have them - Flapdoodle's is strictly local, but it has the BEST ice cream of anywhere I've been.

    Nope.

    Also I think he was the mayor who did that. Or like the former mayor or something. I don't know.

Even larger places like Rochester have them - Flapdoodle's is strictly local, but it has the BEST ice cream of anywhere I've been.
    I believe there's an expression about selling ice cream to an eskimo or something equally offensive. I think that in Lala's case, her proximity to Santa Claus may also effect the viability of such business models.

    Trying to extrapolate from Texas or Minnesota to anywhere else is going to lead to a bad time. Except possibly Texas to Kansas and Minnesota to Wisconsin.

    Ice, not ice cream, but yes.

    Well, I'm reasonably certain that's insurance fraud, whether it was the mayor or not. But either way, that's sad.

    Well, I figured Minnesota to Canada was fairly safe.
    But really, it would make more sense to me for other places to have more ice cream restaurants than the state that's frozen over for half the year. Well, not Canada. That I figured was the same.

    Going by pure math, the town where I live gets less then 24 hours of sunlight in our coldest winter month. So yes, we get pretty damn cold

    The only fast food restaurants we have are McDonalds and KFC. Subway and Quiznos too, if you count sub places.

    Wisconsin and Minnesota are renowned for being dairy-obsessed though, even to dairy-obsessed people. Like, Vegans spontaneously lose their veganity or are expelled from the state by a sort of reverse-osmotic pressure. That's how dairy-obsessed they are.

    The main similarity seems to be the accent from what I've gathered, and I've never been able to tell if that's actually an accent or a cultural in-joke of putting everyone else on...

    Stressful. For the upcoming days, my schedule will look like this:
    Wake up
    Go to Uni
    Do tons of programming
    Go home
    Eat dinner
    Study stochastics
    Go to bed

    I should hopefully start getting my evenings clear again by Wednesday, but that depends on how well the programming goes. In the worst case, we'll probably have to devote an evening as well just to get our prototype running on time...

    For the record, it's in Gävle, consists of a large carbarn filled with different locomotives and carriages, and has a large open field with bushes and small rolling hills through which a mini-train takes passengers for a short ride.

    And some were. We failed a bit at linking together my outfit with the event (our table was a bit offside, I think many may've missed it), so I'm afraid most of those who I managed to boggle won't have a term to link it together with. And we were too late to be spotted by the press, who only visited the area in the earlies hour. But, I think it was good anyway.

    The DQ the I had growing up would inexplicably close down, then re-open a few months later. They eventually built one on one of the main roads in my town, though, so it's nice if I ever feel like going there.

    Unfortunately, I'm more or less broke until my residency starts this summer. It's nice to be able to game twice a week or so, though. I guess you can have time or money, but not both.

    How do the foul-flavoured ones taste like?

    Odd. My mother says the opposite, but she's not an expert on American dining...

    Do they? I've never had that experience before.
    As I said, that is really too bad. A good carrot cake is delicious.

    It was. After all, I don't drink tea or coffee.

    No. The people I know who like tea just like tea.

    She will.

    It's hard to say... They have a kind of after-taste that's difficult to describe.

    That's okay. Mum's aren't always right.

    Well... The sandwiches are usually cut before they reach your table.

    Granted, I can't remember who had the bright idea to make it so that proper eating was cutting the food, setting the knife down, switching the fork, taking a bite, switching the fork back, picking up the knife, and then cutting the food again. Needless to say, I don't abide by that set of mores.

    Not that kind of cut up. The kind where you eat it with a knife and fork, defeating the entire point of a sandwich unless it's an open-faced sandwich. Though why open-faced sandwiches are called sandwiches I'll never know.
    It's acceptable if you can't do it the proper way.

    Well... If a sandwich is that large or overfilled, then it's not really a practical sandwich. And that would be because the open-faced sandwich was invented by a person who intended to make an ordinary sandwich but then realised he only had one slice of bread left. For some reason, the idea caught on.

    In related news: My Brother is an idiot. How can he possibly have expected me to know he was asleep at six in the evening if he doesn't tell me? All he did was yell at me whenever I made the slightest noise, which is no different from an ordinary evening.
    I really wish he would realise that swearing at me just makes me ignore him.

    Tell me about it. I've been trying to get my replicator to do that for nine years. Things a piece of crap. I ask for a McRib Sandwich and it tells me it can't replicate copyrighted food. Considering CraigsListing it.

    I always get so confused by how the page limit is 50... I'm so used to the 500 on another forum (then again, there's a whole bunch more of registered & active users).

    Anyways, to quoting people from the previous thread...

    The names alone of those dishes sound intimidating. Granted, I've always been kind of leery of liver, especially when I learned what gout was.

    How so? It's sweet, baked porridge, isn't it?

    Amidams, eh? Heh. That'd give us the distaff counterpart of Amigams. Mmm, gams...
    Ooh, snap, you just can't handle the deliciousness that is called frosting, then!

    At least when you start baking the cake from scratch you are aware of the ingredients that you use. That way you have the power and hopefully skills (at least the skill to google!) to change whatever you need to for example make the cake healthier.

    I only like liver when it's minced and made into a casserole with some yum yum raisins. It's rather sweet. Liver in all other occasions - kill me now.

    Since when has mämmi been sweet...

    ... I have this feeling that I'm missing something as I have no clue what Amigams is or anything.

    The problem is you guys know each other. You've got your own little inside jokes and conversations already going, even when I force I can't seem to find an in. The best I can hope for is posts like this to potentially break through.

    On a new topic, my sister just told me she got engaged. I guess I should be happy, but I'm really apathetic, which unfortunately came through in my clinical and awkward congratulations. What an awful time to start using the phrase "super duper".

    It can be hard for new people. It's not impossible, but it can be done. Of course, I can't remember how...

    Do you not like or know the guy?
    When my older brothers got engaged I was happy for them because they both had long engagements and I got to know my sisters-in-law before the event.

    I know him. I like him. I think he's great.

    It's just that they hang out together all the time anyway, so it won't really change much for me. They'll still be hanging out all the time, but officially.

    your answer.

    I suppose you can't just go the replicator and ask for "hydrogen, plasma, 20 square millimeters" though that would make for entertaining pranks.
