    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Those aren't fries. Those are LIES!

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Yea, in the US we have a specific 4-prong outlet that's called a "range outlet" that's used for electric stoves. It's generally a 50 amp 240v outlet. While I don't know if it's standard procedure, I'd assume it gets its own breaker in a lot of cases because of the amp rating.

    Wow. Electric stoves in the US aren't hardwired directly to the wall, they use a standardized plug that goes to a pre-wired outlet. If you have to replace it, you just unplug the old one from the outlet and plug the new one in. I kinda figured they'd be on some form of plug everywhere, but if you have to actually wire the stove itself in then I guess that isn't the case for you. Seems weird to me. Also, yea, fixing stoves is stupid these days. My mom's oven door is pretty much falling off and to get new hinges it's almost as much as a new stove. So she's just putting it off.

    There's something to be said for pictographs, though. They can convey a lot of meaning in just a few symbols, where words take much longer to express the same. And, especially when they're as detailed as emojis can be, they're almost able to be read universally. The problem comes with trying to convey complexities, because then pictographs are very limited while words aren't.

    Could be worse. Could be one of those people who never checks their lights and drives around with their tail lights both burned out, at night, in a black car, that only has one working headlight. There was one of those guys driving around town for a month or more, and I know the cops had pulled him over at least once for it. He was apparently just too lazy to go to the store and spend $10 on bulbs for his tail lights. I can understand having to wait a while for headlights, because some headlights are stupid expensive and sometime you have to wait to make that $60 purchase. But regular tail lights are cheap...
  6. I'm in for the $40 book level. Sure, it's probably a bunch of stuff that any DM worth their salt has done up at least once for some big beastie or another, but it's nice having a big book of plug and play options available.

    Kings of War: Vanguard

    I know. I got some of the stuff I wanted, but I had just wrecked my car and didn't know how my finances were going to go when the kickstarter ended, and when the pledge manager closed I was still being more conservative with my funds. I'd have loved to have the resin dwarves, but I missed out on them. Some extra resin elementals, the mat, and at least a third existing minis starter warband would have been awesome gravy sauce. As it was I managed to get the Giant pledge, an extra giant, a frost giant conversion kit, an ogre warband, and an orc warband. The dwarves weren't kickstarter exclusives, were they? I didn't think they were, and their image on the kickstarter page doesn't say anything about it. But they aren't listed in the preorders, which makes me worry that maybe Mantic changed their minds or something. I mean, the resins were all in-house production so I'd have thought that the dwarves would be up for preorder, too. Also, I seriously can't wait. Just a month or so left, and we will have oodles of goodies showing up!

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Fuuuuuuuuuuuu... I just accidentally knocked a big ol' glass of iced tea off my night stand and onto a stack of books and my good battery charger... the books seem like they weathered it well enough, thanks to being hard covers, but I'm not looking forward to testing the charger in a day or two. I had to physically pour tea out of it. It's a Nitecore D2, so it's not the most expensive or fancy charger, but it's the only charger I have for my flashlight that I use at work. And this week I'm on night shift, so I kind of need my flashlight. I got very lucky that the charger wasn't plugged in, so it didn't immediately short out and it might still work. I got EXTREMELY LUCKY that I had just picked my laptop up from right there a few minutes prior. But then, it was a cord plugged into the laptop that caused the spill, so, maybe it wasn't that lucky...

    Not just Thebes. Sparta, too, according to Xenophon. In truth, it was probably a good portion of the Greek world. Oh, and the Romans were pretty famous for that sort of thing as well. And the Japanese...

    I woke up this morning err... afternoon... with a song in my head that reminded me of David Bowie. Except it lasted for a whole 30 seconds as the sleep fog in my brain cleared and now it's completely gone. I remember there being a line about beautiful women making some guys wish that they had gone for girls, and that's about it. And it's just the story of the line, not the actual words. The guys in question may have been department store mannequins or something... It was to a tune similar to Starman...
  12. There were apparently 2 versions of the Cygnar set, one that came with an infantry box and one that replaced the infantry with 2 more jacks. I was wondering if maybe there were 2 variants for each of them.
  13. Ah, so Menoth did bless you with cleansing fire! Was yours the same as mine? Battlegroup, colossal, a box of exemplar cinerators, and a guardian/incinerator or did you get some different figures?

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    So, because I like playing my video games in bed more than I like playing them in a chair, I moved my living room TV to my bedroom to replace the broken one. I also haven't really used this TV since I got the one for the bedroom, and I've never used it while this close to it before. It's both bigger and lower resolution, and I'm pretty sure it has a lower refresh rate, too. And the backlighting is worse, so it has worse contrast. The sound is better though, because it's from before they started trying to make TVs super-thin and get rid of bezels. So it actually packs some half decent speakers in that 4 inch deep by 5 inch tall frame. They're a little low on the bass, but oh well. They're not too shabby otherwise.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    9 hour overtime shift on 4 hours of sleep completed! Puts my overtime at 13 hours for the pay period! Which means I should be seeing a nice and sizeable paycheck come Friday. Which then means I can start on my Christmas shopping. My sister's and I are probably going to get my dad a PS4, and we're probably going to try for getting a refurbished Dyson vacuum for my mom. I also got the warranty process started on my TV. Just sent them pictures of my receipt, my TV, and the serial number so that they can do a "warranty lookup." Since the thing has a 1 year warranty, was bought on 12/27/17, and hasn't had any warranty claims before then it should be good to go for shipping back. And that's when the real test is, because that's when they get to make up excuses not to fulfill my warranty. They'll probably try to say it was a power surge, but given that the surge strip that it's plugged into didn't trip, and the surge strip was bought just a couple days after the TV, I'm going to say a more likely explanation is that the brown outs that my house sometimes experiences taxed a few capacitors and caused them to fail. So now I'm looking at getting a sine wave UPS sometime in the future, because they act as power conditioners. In other news, I'm making dinner! I've got a big old bunch of veggies that I'm going to throw in a roasting pan. Potatoes, zucchini, onions, Serrano peppers, and mushrooms with some butter, olive oil, and a bunch of garlic. Oh, and a couple bratwurst in there too, just for the heck of it. It's a "I'm lazy and don't feel like doing anything other than roughly chopping a few vegetables" dinner. It should turn out decently enough. The mushrooms especially, since they'll absorb a whole bunch of that buttery garlic flavor. Now to throw it in the oven and let it roast for an hour or two...
