  1. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    If one wanted to start smoking tobacco pipes, they wouldn't need to buy an expensive briar or meerschaum one - a corn cob pipe (NOT one from China!) is both forgiving and inexpensive. I have plenty of pipes, but my cobs are the best when I don't want to really concentrate on the smoke (yardwork especially).
  2. Getting an MRI scan of my spine was what set me on the path to practice Medical Imaging - at the moment, Radiology - and either MRI or Interventional Radiology in a couple years.
  3. Skeletal Centaurs

    Grenadier made a couple nice ones, ages ago. One with a spear and armor, the other with a club. I see them on eBay from time to time. I'll try to put up a picture of them later, after work. Edit: These guys.
  4. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    Crap, forgot to mention yesterday - X-Rays were discovered on November 8, 1895 by Wilhelm Roentgen. This week is National Rad Tech week! If any of you (unfortunately) need an x-ray in the next couple days, be extra nice to the person taking pictures of y'bones.
  5. Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    When a surgeon goes to reattach a snapped-off malleolus (the little bumps on either side of your ankles), they sometimes pin them back on with wire, just like pinning a miniature. I got to see this first hand at my clinical site today, and had to struggle to keep from laughing. ;)
  6. I do not care to see Christmas decorations up the day after Halloween, that's for sure. It just makes me tired of the holiday by the time the actual day comes around. But then again, I am a grumpy cuss.
  7. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    Please no - we have already been inundated with people moving here over the past five years.
  8. So, who is excited about ReaperCon 2017

    Very true - fortunately I arrived at the table right after a couple squads worth of Sisters of Battle were put on it.
  9. I Painted A...Thing

    Despite life being awry, Number One Son and I made it up to ReaperCon for a few hours. One of his favorite features of it is the Paint and Take table - he's really beginning to get into mini painting, and tries to finish at least one while we're there. As I am a social wreck who's very set in his ways, I generally hate to paint away from my comfy setup at home (even though it's been a while since that setup has been used). However, as NOS was asking for some tips, I figured I'd need to lead by example and eventually painted...this... He's pretty rough, but hey - he's a ratman, innit? Fairly fun, simple sculpt - easy enough to do even with unfamiliar brushes and less than optimal lighting. AND I actually managed to paint something! Think I'll add him to my "dungeon crawl critters" box. Time to get back to thinking up excuses why I haven't worked on my Chariot of Fear in the "Works in Progress" forum :D

    Most likely be there - might even be able to stay an ENTIRE day, then.
  11. So, who is excited about ReaperCon 2017

    Boring? You're not kidding...I've done no more than six x-rays tonight :( Couldn't really ditch though - I'll graduate in a month and a half, and I need every clinical minute here at the hospital.
  12. So, who is excited about ReaperCon 2017

    I'm stuck at clinicals tonight and tomorrow evening, but The Boy and I will get to be there on Saturday morning, at least. Thankfully, we live just a few miles away from the venue.
  13. Ugh - I'm trying to get to this one. School is kicking my butt this semester, though - my teachers are of the "if one project/paper is good, why not have the class do three?" mindset. Never fear! (oh, wait. You have to fear - it's the chariot's whole shtick after all) The Black Prince will ride soon (ish, ish, ish...)!
  14. Impact Speed Painted Minis From Years Long Ago

    Painter cat (#3) is a Crocodile Games Basti miniature. Might have been a Gen Con exclusive.
