  1. And after God had created the earth and the sea and the beasts of the field, he created Grump. And I turned to God and said, "Hey, who's the kid?"

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    94 F and 70% humidity today... Yay me. Gonna be 99 tomorrow. In other news, anybody got an old '90's-era IBM with two floppy drives that I can borrow? Found this at the Goodwill (complete with map, books and all assorted secondary paperwork and inserts) the other day....
  3. I once had a group of engineers and physics nerds who insisted on voluntarily TPK-ing themselves after I apparently got, erm, overly descriptive about a cracked, rotten ice bridge they were crossing... Somebody said, "Hey, wait a second...", whipped out a calculator and announced that the bridge I'd described wouldn't hold their combined weight and they'd all just fallen to their deaths. Despite my best efforts to protest and try to continue with the planned adventure, they all got out their books and started rolling new characters. <Bleep>ing engineers... lol

    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    At the age of fifteen, I had issues moving around inside the Nautilus during the walk-through. As an adult, I wouldn't make it from one end of the sub to the other without a cutting torch, lol.

    When Life gives you lemons, cast them down, grind them beneath your boots to make lemonade, and then demand better tribute.

    And #10 is just being contrary. I am not! I am being non-anti-contrary. (Actually, I didn't even read the original post, so I have no idea what the hell you guys are talking about, lol.)

    Gracie O'Malley lived to be seventy... She was almost sixty when she befriended Queen Elizabeth, and was known to be a hellraiser and rabblerouser well into her old age.

    My family left Ireland for the US in the late 1930's, mainly due to Ireland being in one of it's "third word country" phases... Nine kids and two adults living in a tiny apartment in Hell's Kitchen was a step up from their previous circumstances. During the height of WWII, General Electric's Electric Boat division in Groton, CT was churning out submarines for the US Navy at the astonishing rate of one every two weeks.
  9. Is actually an old Ral Partha Chaos Wars 51-704 Lesser Demon... One of my personal old-school favorites, and still available from IWM.

    At one point, most of it was available in a mix of small and large chunks on Youtube, but that was quite some while ago... I saw the whole thing on a copy of a copy of a VHS tape many years ago.
  11. Sarge's Comics, the local comic book store, has a 25% and 50% off bin, but the pickings are scarce - it's entirely random what they throw in it and at what discount, and a lot of it sits there for ages, like the packs of counters for various games... So you kind of have to make a point of digging through it regularly to find anything good.
  12. The guy in the chair is Factol Hashkar from the Ral Partha 10-519 Planescape Miniatures box set - he's actually missing the back of his chair. The spider is the WizKids phase spider, I believe... Both those and the Blademaster were stuff I put in.

    And you don't necessarily have to have any sort of license to own a gun with an unrifled barrel, like a shotgun or musket... Having a rifled barrel is (a small) part of the complex legal definition (at least in the US) of a "modern firearm", which generally needs to be registered.
  14. Why hasn't anybody found evidence yet of of a jackalope-chupacabra hybrid? That's what I'm waiting for...

    Actually, it takes a hell of a lot of training and accuracy to be able to rapidly fire "wildly" downrange like that during a large battle and not hit anything. A significant number of casualties during the American Revolution were caused by shots aimed at other people, rather than the ones they hit.

    You're working near Silent Hill? Bring extra batteries for the flashlight... Anywhere the local residents don't have bigger guns... I always take either the old parts or a cellphone pic to the store with me...

    Wow, someone just fell down a rabbit hole... I just got a like on the first show-off thread I ever posted back in 2007, lol.
  19. Dammit, I knew I put that thing around here somewhere... <grabs quest item, goes off to get xp>
  20. Dude... I have that guy... somewhere. Or had. Not sure where he went to. I got him as a random in a lot I bought last year.

    Hell, you can cross Rhode Island twice in a single hour doing about 95mph... (I speak from experience, lol.)
