    I really dislike people who use sesquipedalian words.

  1. I just started Path of Exile. It's such a wonderful game like a Diablo 2 dungeon crawl.
  2. In my early 20s, I met this guy in the library at college. He was absolutely my type: tall, shaved head, tats, was wearing flannel and cowboy boots the day we met. Anyways, I was smitten hard. we hung out a few times, but he was always not interested in dating. Had no problems having sex, but I was so wrapped around his finger, I would have done anything. I find out after a couple of months, that I was one of about 5 he was stringing along and getting all the sex he could want. Absolutely the bad boy that he was, and I fell hook, line, and sinker.
  3. Just downloaded Black Desert Online...will see how that is later this evening.
  4. Not sure your price point, but check out ibuypower.com. I've been very pleased with the products I've purchased from them over the years.
  5. In a cast iron skillet, with water. Also, if you find cleaning a cast iron skillet more time consuming than the microwave or anything used for baking it, you're cleaning your skillet wrong.
  6. Yeah, I'm enjoying it so far. I don't care for the hyper-anime look of the game, but at least ALL of the characters aren't like that. I'm playing the Castanic. So, basically a blood elf with horns.
  7. I picked up Shadows of Mordor again and have been enjoying that....god I love diving off things and brutally killing orcs and uruks. I also downloaded Tera and started playing that to spend some time with a guy I met.
  8. There are books about craps and computer games that will help you get the hang of the betting and stuff. I used to date a guy who made craps his "game", and got to the point, he could both best for himself and against himself so he would "win" pretty much however it went down.
  9. really awesome costume

  10. I never had to deal with workloads like that. But I will say how grading was explained to me by my philosophy professor who clearly had to weight qualitative answers in tests and papers. She said that up front, she had divorce herself from the notion of how she thought the question should be answered. She's a PhD, has studied the material for decades and forgot more about it than we as student even pretended to know. To "equalize" this, she would identify the "A" student for the class (in a small enough university, you know who the standout student is in your class) and read his/her paper first. If it was a solid answer, that became the benchmark by which the other undergraduate answers would be judged. Not against how she would answer, but against how an intelligent and thoughtful peer would answer it. Now, there were times, she said, that she would come across an answer that was even better than the benchmark, and she may re-order them or consider them both A-level answers, but generally speaking, that was the benchmark. It was more detailed, really, because she actually gave x/10 or x/5 points per answer (or in the case of a paper x/y), so she would have to balance out how close to "perfect" each answer would be. But, she said, it was the only way she could ultimately feel comfortable judging undergraduate work, because her understanding of a topic would always be more nuanced and informed.
  11. God I love DA:I I mean, it gets a little old for me at times, b/c I just want to play with my kick-ass mage, all the time, but LOVE LOVE LOVE the game.
  12. habitual sexual harasser, fo' sho'.
  13. I think Sci-Fi works best when it is a mirror to our current squabbles, but removed enough for us to envision a way through them. In that regard, I like gritty situations and environments, but with positive solutions instead of dystopian ones. There are elements about the Expanse which I really like: namely that it shows human failings still being a problem - the tribalism of Earth vs Mars and their exploitation of the Belt. Those conflicts are always going to be with us, because (and as much as I like Star Trek) humans are not "togetherness" beings. For me, what I would like to see in a Space Opera would be some of Freeman Dyson's thoughts on screen - a Dyson swarm (or swarm ring) out among the asteroid belt; genetically modified humans with "wings" who can float and maneuver in zeroG and thin atmospheres (Imagined Worlds); communication by neural implants; no FTL. I think these would be believable trajectories for humanity, giving enough "fantasy" and "alienness", but without the need to introduce new intelligent species (which I personally don't find believable).
  14. You're casting the INTJf Real World Show. Pick 8 Forumites to live in the house together. No need to give explanations as to why you chose. I'll start: Mattandsuch Jezebel DHiver Distance Claudus Plotthickens Dogzilla Pigpjs
  15. I personally find the urge to have your own children to be incredibly selfish. It's one thing to want to be a parent - there are lots of unwanted children that need parents. But to consciously decide that being a parent and that the child has to be of your own genetic makeup and then an active time of working to conceive is just selfish and, IMO, unethical. Note: I fully understand that it's a pretty harsh statement, but....so be it.
