    Further comments will lead to bees...

    That's why I haven't been commenting. I have strong opinions on what should happen to poachers. 


    With regards to Sudan, I hope he finds his family waiting for him and is no longer lonely. Last of his kind is a sad, lonely fate.

    Re: Warcraft movie. I couldn't stop laughing at how ridiculously over-sized the orcs were. I almost stopped watching when the VW sized orc jumped on the normal sized horse and rode off. I know it's fantasy, but come on...

    Lol they were being true to the games. The orcs are huge in that game. Except the peons. "Stop poking me!"


    My biggest disappointment with the Warcraft movie was that they didn't play the hilarious music from the end of the game.



    Hubby and I finally watched Justice League today. It was okay, dragged a bit in the middle, character developement seemed rushed for Cyclopes and Flash. I definitely like the way they do the Flash in the tv show better, with regards to his speeding effects, but the kid who played him was cute. Reminded me of Spider-Man.


    My biggest issue with the movie was the CGI. Like, the villain looked like he was from a video game. Superman's upper lip wasn't even as distracting as how fake the villain looked. Just, super fake!



    Also, the little girl didn't get to spray one of the bugs. Big disappointment.

    I quite literally feel your pain. I also got a "brown box" Kaladrax with the plan to paint him as Obsidian Lavadrax, but every time I pick up the box I hear the remembered screams of all the paint brushes I killed doing him the first time during my 7 day Challenge.... :wacko:

    Use a bigger paintbrush. It won't die and it'll go faster. I painted my vardo all brown in like, 10 minutes with a biggish brush. Well, most of it. There are difficult to reach spots around the wheels, and I was holding it by the roof.

    Question the 20th of March: Can you ride a bike?  If so, when did you learn?   Any funny stories involving bicycles?

    I learned when I was about 7. 


    I don't know about funny, but there was the time in second grade where we were supposed to read our Christmas lists and I got laughed at for asking for a bike with training wheels. And the teacher told me I should know how already. I didn't like her.

    On a related note, I have tested my skills in the deep ocean.  One fun thing on a submarine when you have the time to do it is swim call.  You stop on the surface (somewhere warm like the Bahamas' or the Med, and go swimming.  It can be a bit disconcerting when the only object in sight is the sub though. 

    That sounds creepy. What if a kraken got you :wacko:

    I swim tolerably well. I learned the summer I was 9. My mom and I lived in an apartment with a pool (first in my life). It was fun and enjoyable. I don't swim well enough to get through rough water, I'm sure. I'd probably drown.

    I really need to paint a thing, and to document the few things I've actually painted so far this year. The mojo just hasn't been there at all. :down: Maybe I should bust out my metallic paints and make something shiny, because I always enjoy doing that. Shiny makes everything better. ^_^



    --OneBoot :D 

    I found this craft paint (I needed glitter paint, you see) at Michael's called "colour shift". It's shiny, like a beetle's shell. I only got the purple to green, and haven't gotten to use it yet, but you'd probably like it. They had five colours, I think.

  8. @Marvin I don't think you're wrong to love the storytelling more than the math. I know that's my favorite part of RPGing.

    Ain't just you. The bane of my existence is these kids who've been raised on computer games, and wander around looking for an NPC with a punctuation mark floating over his head because they have no idea what to do next...

    That would @Cyradis' job. She'll dole out all the quests!


    I hope you feel better soon @Unruly

    Question the 16th-18th of March:  Have you ever scratch built/modified something for the hobby? (tools, equipment, figures, terrain ect.)  If so, tell us about the piece you are/were most proud of.

    Yes, most frequently bases of various sorts. Also, changing weapons, adding hats, that sort of thing. I've posted it before, but the one I'm most pleased with is a bird man I did using a GW mini, reaper wings, a random arm, and plenty of green stuff.
