  1. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    So I was just looking at the BBC News website and I saw a link titled "Macron's marvellous manoeuvres". My first reaction was to wonder "What level spell is that?" before I realised it was an article about the President of France.
  2. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    It has been suggested (but not confirmed) that the inspiration for the xorn (and the roper) came from this 1950s movie: The monsters are only seen in one brief scene in the movie, and never very clearly.
  3. Game: Identify Old Minis!

    Found the gnome: Minifigs GNM5 Gnomes w. clubs
  4. Game: Identify Old Minis!

    I just realised I own that gnome, inherited as part of my brother's collection. But the only marking on his base is the number 74. There appear to be several more gnomes from the same set, but none of them have legible base markings.

    The top one appears to be an incomplete Ral Partha Dark Sun cliff glider 11-704

    She was really stupid to take an apple from a strange old woman she didn't know.
  7. Getting to Know You, Jan 2018

    Theme from The Muppet Show. Hey, it would make everyone laugh.
  8. B for scale in previews?

    If it supposed to be a replacement for bryangles as a scale indicator then we need to be told what size it is.
  9. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    So you're a quantum vampire? It's impossible to tell whether you are undead or not until someone opens your coffin?
  10. Webcomics - Because....

    This one amused me:
  11. Getting to Know You, Jan 2018

    I have never participated in karaoke, nor even been present when it was taking place. But there was a period a few years ago when my cordless headphones used to pick up a signal from what I assume must have been a karaoke microphone in a nearby pub. Some of the things I heard that way were.... excruciating.

    This is delightful. What a charming scene you have constructed.
  13. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Don't let anyone ever tell you the Passport Fairy isn't real...
  14. Getting to Know You, Jan 2018

    Probably this, which used to be in my brother's home and is now in mine after I inherited his stuff. There is space in the back of it to put a tea light which can shine through the glass eyes.
  15. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    Something similar happened to British comic Tommy Cooper. On live TV. He was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital.
  16. Merry Christmas

    ...and then Yulevenses....
  17. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Borrowed from the cookie recipe thread: It occurs to me that if taken out of context, this picture could be interpreted as some sort of alien language. Ten thousand years from now it will give rise to all sorts of crackpot theories, and digital archaeologists will devote whole careers to attempting to translate it.
  18. 02704 Lord of the Gnolls size comparison please

    He's a big lad. Here's a quick snap:
  19. Getting to Know You ... December Edition

    I would have to say platypus. There's no way that's a real animal, right?
  20. Have you been Naughty or Nice?

    I hope nobody wanted to burn their coal.
  21. Have you been Naughty or Nice?

    Hmm... I wonder what is given to those people who are neither naughty nor nice. Is there no consideration for those of neutral alignment?
  22. Getting to Know You ... December Edition

    Ebenezer Wonka - purveyor of the finest humbugs.
  23. 12 Days of Reaper Begins December 6th!

    I must admit I am kind of disappointed since I don't have much use for seasonal-themed minis. Previous years have offered more variety to choose from.
