The CD-i Toothbrush

Using the woman's toothbrush, one of those vibrating or spinning things. It feels like I'm actually at the dentist's office. ME: This is a good (edited to protect the tender sensibilities of manchildren)ing toothbrush. HER: It should be. It cost $150. ME: ...whut? HER: I put a ton of money into my t...

I think my brother and his friends were losers for being lured in by free pizza when they really had no interest in the event. Ohoho, sticking it to the Baptists teehee.

Especially since I was working as a delivery driver for Pizza Hut at the time.

I think they were losers in general, though.

I can answer as to the politicians: They're pandering, of course. We do have quite a lot of fundamentalists who appreciate hearing those things said, and so they are indeed said. It's mostly on the conservative side, to curry votes, but practically any politician finds it advantageous to say that th...

It's really hard to say what makes a good Christian, since I'm not one. Language is a non-issue to me, and there's a long list of Old Testament material that is just plain self-evidently ethically wrong (and damn the argument that we're living in a different time, that didn't do a bunch of slaves an...

Anybody good with Latin?

If so, is there an approximation for "F*** 'em if they can't take a joke"? We need a motto here at our new gaming art project.

The one thing I absolutely despise about writing resumes is the objective field. If at all possible, I avoid it. But I'm using a format in resumizer.com's selection that looks really naked without one, going straight from personal info to skills. So I need an objective, the worst kind of ten dollar ...

I believe I've noted before, but to be safe: Casino arcades > Dave & Busters. To help parents ignore their kids, casinos crank up the value.

Anime pulled an American media move and plunged fully into tween-oriented pap and me-tooisms. Dragon Ball Z is probably the worst shit ever to happen to the form.

That said, all aces belong to: Space Adventure Cobra, Golgo 13, Cowboy Bebop, Riding Bean, and Gunsmith Cats.

I liked the first game at twenty bucks, but missed the second. Does it matter if I go right to the third?

(Also, invading from the other thread, I didn't understand "health tourist". Is it a hostel thing? Here that means basically "slum apartment")

Well, the published writer thing plus my familiarity with Ruby and XP are making me think it's possible. Silly me.

Actual engine implementation, should an extended XP prototype impress, would be handled by two coders. One is just starting out and the other goes all the way back to Microprose.

I'm considering how each action plays out. Nothing is worse than lazy hack writing like Mass Effect, where the net result of any scenario is a good/bad slider increment and you're done with that part of the game forever, no repercussions. Now take Space Rogue. Faction rep matters. I played as a pira...
