Here goes my : I'm thom, a live-long gamer. I came over from Twitter, where I'm basically following game creators exclusively.
I translated Pathfinder RPG books for Ulisses for a year. Oh, and I made this:

boost this and i will think a good thought about you (you don't get to know what it is tho)

I hereby publicly announce: my youngest is a frigging awesome genius. Not only has she clearly inherited my own musical talent.(multiplied by her mom's talent, so kid's even better than I was at her age), she's also actually good at French (besides being native in German and English anyway)

yes, I constantly let her know how I feel.

I made Sticky Toffee Pudding. Thanks UK folks for coming up with that. It's probably deadly to anyone with diabetes, but we love it.

Me having to work in the kitchen for 2 hours to bake home-made "Brötchen" (German rolls): alrighty, let's do this, folks!
Me having to spend 10 minutes cleaning up something: naaaaah, dunwanna.

when I first ran D&D, my grandmother, who had bought fully into the IT'S SATANISM hype, insisted on sitting and watching the first session

about an hour in, she threw her hands up and yelled 'THIS IS JUST MATH' and stormed off

my favourite mastalab feature is how you have to click three different "open in firefox" buttons to open in firefox

Alright, giving another go. Should make it further than 15 minutes into the first episode this time...

#gw2 #guildwars2 question: is anyone in a roleplaying guild they would recommend?

(boosts appreciated)

"Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving."

— Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

dear parents who justify using DNA genome sequencing services:

if you sequence your genome, you're also sequencing half of your kids' genomes.

if both parents sequence their genomes, then 100% of your kids genomes are also sequenced. why? because the data companies can create composite genomes which have a high likelihood of matching your kids.

so your kids will get to deal with the consequences of your indiscretion through higher health insurance costs and possible denials of care on genetic grounds.

in other words, you're contributing to making the world a worse place by having your genome sequenced by these for-profit companies.

beyond that the ancestry features don't even work: my mother is registered Choctaw with 1/4 blood quantum and yet the results said 97% white, 2% native american, 1% black.

this is because genetic testing for DNA markers and associating them racially is not real science, it's genetic homeopathy. anyone can carry any genes at any time.

anyway point is don't sell out your kids by using these for-profit services. they sell your data and the consequences are devastating.

My apartment complex's office held the package for me instead of sending it back!! apparently the local post office was misdelivering a lot of packages over the holidays, so they held onto stuff since they knew people might not realize it was at the office

When I was 6, I asked my mom what ESP is, and she went into a long explanation about psychic powers and finding missing persons. When she was done, I pulled out my CD Walkman, pointed at the Electronic Shock Protection switch, and said "so if I turn this on, can this find my Gameboy??"

Got to sleep around 4am, got woke up by some of our cats getting into a fight with the neighborhood bully and my family rushing in to help and yelling..
I'm seeing a very early night ahead for me (I have to work tomorrow and the kid goes back to school as well).

For a while I've wanted to write a short story about a Mayan high priest who forgets to do the human sacrifice for the day, and when the sun rises even without the sacrifice, he has to make sure none of the townspeople notice so that he can keep his job.
