    There's a very limited circumstances where I could believe that statement at gave value. I expect that this is not one of those situations.

    Let him calm down. People aren't at their most rational after an argument. Perhaps he'll admit that he holds at least some of the responsibility later.

    Well, this weekend my little sister embarked on our quasi-annual quasi-tradition1 of "playing co-op through a traditionally single-player FPS". This year she decided we should go through System Shock 2 again (between sessions of our ongoing Stardew Valley game...talk about thematic contrast o_o ). Going pretty well so far, we got to the engineering deck with very few deaths, though of course that's the deck where most deaths occur...She has also gained a new appreciation for what had constituted "hi-tech" back when her age was in single digits (LAN IP addresses and DirectPlay are nowhere near as convenient as being invited to join a game over Steam, surprising no one).



    1 As in, we've done this three times in the last three years with no actual intent to do it with any regularity, so calling it "tradition" is an executive decision on my part.

    Its a sufficiently recognized threat that its in the rules of baseball. I dont know how much more "this is how it will be interpreted if you do this specific thing" you really need. Intentionally flashing another weapon at a person during a conversation to highlight that you have it is also considered a threat in a similar manner.

    In the eyes of a lot of society, nobody ever "just has" a weapon.

    His Hybrids just kind of... Get to turn into a pre-existing Digimon. Each of the "Bio-Hybrids" had an Armor form and a Mega form

    I just... I was a kid and I thought it would be cool to be a giant robot dragon that was the ultimate end result of in-universe research into cyborgs and androids and was explicitly a hybrid of several pre-existing cyborgs.

    Also, one of the possible previous forms is an undead dragon.

    Will there goes my calm day off relaxation. I find out that, due to a lack of free days, my referral was cancelled between the initial call about an appointment and me being able to call back. So now I've got to wait another two days for a GP skinny and then another two months for another potential eye appointment.

    Because being able to see certainly isn't important and degenerative conditions just get better on their own.

    This wouldn't have happened if, like with every other major appointment I've had, they just told me when it was. But no, when it's actually urgent they expect you to book and kick you off the list if you can't.

    The last of the pain in my jaw from having my wisdom teeth pulled is about gone, so I can actually use my entire mouth again for chewing! Glad that's over with. Now I never have to worry about my wisdom teeth again. Shame about the -2 wisdom penalty, but I wasn't using that stat much anyway.

    My job requires me to get a drug test. They gave me a deadline that was about an hour from when they sent me the request... and sent that deadline to me about 10 minutes before the office I needed to go to closed.

    Given the short notice, I suppose you can tell them it was beyond irresponsible. It's really whoever sent the notice's fault, not yours.

    Basically this. Do everything in your power to get proof that you physically could not comply with the request. Cover your ass.

    Yeah, while it's but as clear cut as stone examples I've seen (notice it explicit notice given weeks after the deadline) it's just not acceptable.


    My suggestion would be, if possible, get the drug test, get the proof you've done it as soon as you can, and get all the evidence related to the deadline you. Also check if anybody else has had this happen, the bigger the trend the brighter t store glows.

    Tests of hair alleged to have come from the yeti almost inevitably prove that it's bear hair.

    However, sometimes the tests suggest that it's from undiscovered species of bear. the hairs don't quite match with other recorded species.

    Personally, I think the posisble existence of a kind of bear we haven't discovered and recorded yet is more exciting than evidence of a monstrous ape-man.

    ...Okay then. My sources said it was mostly bear... Gonna have to double-check.

    I think my point about potential undiscovered species of bear being more interesting than an ape-man stands though.

    Nitpick: the ghost sisters are too far apart in age to be twins (can't remember if it's a two or three years difference).

    I hate when the seasons change. All of my aches and pains start acting up at the same time. Three limbs of arthritis and a stiff leg and god fricking damn I'm not even 30 yet.

    Let's be clear: For all my talk over not wanting to be a victim and my experiences as a kid in school and my desire to literally lice forever, my main reason for waning to be something else is so that I wouldn't have to deal with this kind of thing.

    The fact that anyone has to deal with their bodies breaking down over time is kind of bull****.

    Admittedly, a lot of my dried solutions are a bit excessive, going well above and beyond what would be needed to solve the problem, but I'm of the opinion that for something that important it's best to be as absurdly thorough as possible with a couple of equally through redundancies just in case.

    Or making a complete job of it.

    @Rater: ouch. From what I remember your roughly the same age as me, so as somebody with a broadly functional body (barring my broken eyes and nonstandard brain) you have my sympathies. If take a lack of aging in my current position (assuming I could expect living to 70), I'd take it even more of I was in s position like yours.

    I'm still mostly functional even when everything is acting up, there are most definitely people who have it worse than me, hell this isn't even the worst pain I've ever experienced, but that doesn't make it pleasant.

    Kinda. IIRC an alien medical program crashed on earth. It didn't have any reference for our species' biology, so it decided the first human it found (a child in a gas mask, horrified of falling bombs [WW2 London] and looking for its mother) was what a healthy human was. It had malfunctioned and spread like a virus because it kept running into "normal" humans, thinking they were sick (because no gas mask, no desperate need to find its mother, etc).

    It's hard to forgive those who have wronged you but every moment you don't is another they have hurt you.

    IRC, the kid was dead or dying when the nanomachines found him so technically undead but in my book the technological component makes them closer to cyborgs... Especially the ones that were

    The main kid's an edge case.

    If you wanna call them zombies, they're closer to being "infected" than "undead."

    Yes, I've seen the episode and remember the twist (and the other one that solves it). Whether or not they're actually zombies is besides the point, but going for broad category 'zombie' fits better than 'ghost' does.

    And now I'm wondering when they're going to bring the vampires back, it's been a while. Especially since the latest season had suggested that the Doctor might be a Great Vampire.
