    I honestly always assumed you were years older than me, not sure why.

All three games look laughably primitive now, of course, but when you were experiencing that progression at the time it was pretty amazing.
    Maybe at the time, since I've had to go back to them I've never noticed much difference. Also TR1 (PS version) might be the gfirst game I ever played, the only other comtender is the original Baldur's Gate.

    I was always one of the youngest in my year group at school, although I think I always managed to avoid being the youngest in the class. Well chronilogicaly at least, mentally I was always one or two years behind everybody else. Still never really matured past 'horny fifteen year old'.

    But yeah, while I'm used to being older than others due to younger siblings, it still weirds me out in an equal power environment.

    My family raises chickens for the eggs, we have an acre we have the room for it.

    The chickens occasionally get out of the pen and wander the yard. My stepfather says that this isn't a problem and they occasionally get out and go back in, I hate this becuase 1: I don't know how to corral chickens, 2: the chickens sometimes get aggressive with me and only me, 3: Our yard in not fenced in so they could just walk into the street, 4: Our neighbor doesn't keep track of his chickens and they sometimes wander into our yard 5: We occasionally get hawks around here.

    My stepfather doesn't see what the big deal is, but those are our animals and we have a responsibility to them.

    When my stepfather is out of town, my brother is in charge of chickens.

    Today I'm bringing the bins back from the curb and I see that the chickens are not only out, they're coming around the side of the house and heading toward the street.

    I tell my brother since my stepfather is out of town and it's my brother's job to take care of the chickens... and he gets an attitude with me and calls me a bully... For wanting him to do his job and make sure the chickens get wrangled back into the coop before they wander into the street and get hit by a car.

    As someone who has been collecting the eggs from a very young age (3-4) I recommend a stick. Now I'm not sure how my mother got Samson (our rooster) to give that stick (called my Samson stick until I was about 6) a wide berth or if he just considered me a whole lot more dangerous when I demonstrated reach but it worked. Later in life I found the same idea still works...A broom or rake is also ideal as the wide end lets you face the broadside towards them and shoo them the way you want, plus brooms and rakes are often kept near the bloody coop/feed bag areas anyway.

    Also they can sense fear. and most are combination of daft and crazy.

    I suspect that your mom just used the stick enough that Samson knew the deal. It was the same for my best friend's cows back in high school. If you needed to rustle them up, just grab a stick and they will move. Just in case they don't, a gentle poke gets them to jump a foot in the air and book it double time.

    Or maybe sticks with farm animals are just magic.

    Well, I didn't start it, so no.

    Kinda wish it was. I can think of a lot of situations where a magic sword that can sometimes shoot a laser would be useful.

    Swords are cool.

    I don't trust myself to use one responsibly, but they're cool.

    A little while back when I was stressed or anxious by stuff I'd boot up Kingdom Hearts 3 and just sail around in the Caribbean. Haven't done so in a while, but there's something very relaxing about piloting a magical ship around various tropical islands and occasionally using canons to blow the Hell out of enemy pirate ships.

    I wouldn't trust myself with a sword, would probably poke somebody's eye out. Then twenty seconds later I'll realise it's my team that's down an eye.

    Probably just better if I get a puzzle that forms a magic pendant or something. Although knowing me, instead of a wizard I'd end up as some kind of Cleric.

    Don't say that. It makes me think I need to start doing capoeira and I don't have the legs or the lack of fat needed to do hose kidns of flips.
    If you do the stuff needed to start learning capoeira you will though! But yeah don't stress, you don't need to have first hand knowledge of A Thing to write it, I'm just obsessed with my own sense of realism. I specifically want to feel the weight of a sword so I can accurately capture that because to me that is something I need to do.

    Meanwhile I want to do it because it's cool. Although I'm probably going to take up unarmed marital arts again first, anybody know of a good strike-focused one?

    Also, I just discovered that Paul Merton, aka the greatest wit alive, made his own sketch show a couple of decades ago. I'm so binging that tomorrow.
