    Okay, probably just time to avoid this thread for a week or so. I can see what's going to happen here...

    What about the other pocket?

    Wallet, keys, cellphone, and a tiny pillbox for my mid-dinner medicines that I keep on me in case dinner doesn't happen at home.

    I've seen the first happen, the second is new, and more than a little disconcerting, especially since people have said they can't drop their pledges now that it's suspended.

    I always use the second definition of chore, so they are all unpleasant, and I take satisfaction from none of them. noun a routine task, especially a household one. synonyms: task, job, duty, errand; More an unpleasant but necessary task. That said, recycling bothers me more than others, not from an effort standpoint or anything, but from its current implementation in my household. The wife wants it done a certain way, and I disagree with the efficiency of said way, so it's annoying, but happy wife, happy life, so I do it that way. I'm not sure there's any real joy I get from routine chores, but I always feel better when we do a major cleanup (like spring cleaning the garage or cleaning my desk after a big project), or reorganize an area of the house, or add new storage. That's always satisfying to some degree. As I moved at the beginning of the month, we are still in the stages where every night there is something that still needs done (tonight is getting the basement smoke detector to talk to the upstairs one, and hanging storage strips (Rubbermaid Fast Track) in the garage. Still quite a lot to do. My hobby area is getting extra shelving on Sunday, that's one I'm particularly looking forward to.

    It was floating in the comments section earlier. Originally posted by some guys that had dealt with the companies in question on Facebook. Then other people dug up the companies ownership info on some Canadian registry, and the names were the same guys from the KS.

    The guys from Moon Design (US TM holders for Heroquest) and Mike Selinker (worked on lots of stuff including Pathfinder Card Game and Thornwatch), as well as a few other lesser known designers were all very active in warning backers away from HQ25.

    Alright! Kickstarter did the right thing. Suspended. Ninja'd.

    A lot of Canadian companies with scammy background are being tied to one of the creators now. If the other two fellas are clean, they are in business with a bad dude.

    I'm big, and pretty good at hitting things with sticks/sharp things. But also heavily dependent on allergy/asthma/cystic fibrosis medicine. Without it I have a severely shortened life expectancy. So put me in the front ranks I guess and hope I take out a bunch of 'em before that happens.

    I don't think the base from the Barge has been shown either.

    Back in my prime I played on a mixed double/triple A team, but hockey was a bit behind here in central Ohio, so we got destroyed by any team out of state that was a real double A or better. I currently play in a self-assign rec league, which leads to all sorts of sand bagging. I'd feel comfortable playing at C level, but my team moved to D, so that's where I am (I like the dudes I play with). The B league is the highest here, and has former NHLers in it. Why they couldn't reclassify that as A, I have no clue. It ended up creating an E league for new players when they combined the old A and B to B, so that was just weird. I've subbed in C and been outclassed pretty good, but also found that I enjoyed playing at that speed quite a bit too. So I'd say in most areas I'm probably a C, but here in Cbus for some reason I'm a just a decent D player.

    Oh yeah, I forgot the hockey playoff beard. That's mostly a community/social thing though. But it's rooted in luck. And I shave it when my team is facing elimination. Though that's never stopped them being eliminated.

    Of course! Through the years of bargain bin/auction hunting, you inevitably will run across lots that have a couple figures you want and tons you don't. Sometimes flipping the rest of the lot is more hassle than it's worth, but throwing them out seems wrong so you wait until you have a giant stash you can pump out to Ebay all at once, hopefully closing the circle and giving someone else a mini or two they were hunting. I'm not certain anything in particular would move anything up my hobby queue right now, I hobby for my own pleasure and my queue is set for a while (even if not properly ordered, it at least has 10 or so projects in it that I'll get to before introducing new ones). Bonus: As a hockey goalie, sooooooooooo many things. Talking to my posts. Handshake line rituals. Warm up rituals. Dressing rituals. If I put my equipment on in the wrong order it will feel different on me during the game, I'll be worried a strap has come loose, I'll play poorly and be distracted. If I miss a stretch in warm ups, I'll be worried about injuring myself and not be as aggressive on the shooter as I would otherwise be and let them see more net by not properly telescoping. If I miss a pregame drill I'll be overcompensating by trying to dial in my hand-eye mid game and thinking about that instead of reading the ice. If I don't talk to my posts in downtime I zone out, and lose focus. A lot of it is mental, to keep you focused, or comfortable, so it really isn't about luck, per se, but it is about consistency, so that situations feel the same, and your brain knows how to react to situations and muscle memory takes over. So, when people says hockey players/goalies are superstitious and do things for luck, that's part of it, but there's a bit of a mad science to it , as well.
