  1. Somebody over in the General Fantasy subforum was talking about it, which was the first I'd ever heard of it. I'll have to read more about it to find out what it's really about. I didn't know AtomSmasher (Tabletop Minions) was involved in it, haven't watched the channel in quite a while. Sad to hear that their first version contained a lot of typos though. Ah, here's the General Fantasy thread.
  2. Considering my job hunt is still ongoing, I don't really have anything to differentiate between the weekend from the rest of the week. So currently, it's all the same, my canine companions can tell time and like to operate on a tight schedule. I imagine when/if/hopefully soon that it will change, as I've got some applications in to places with all types of odd shifts.
  3. And it just so happens that in half an hour it is coming on TV... serendipity, no doubt. And don't feel like you are stepping on coat tails. Share the trivia! This all gets stored into what I hope to someday be in my Jeopardy contestant toolbox.
  4. Today's timeline trivia for June 12th: 1550 – The city of Helsinki, Finland (belonging to Sweden at the time) was founded by King Gustav I of Sweden. 1817 – The earliest form of bicycle, the dandy horse, was driven by Karl von Drais. 1987 – At the Brandenburg Gate, U.S. President Ronald Reagan publicly challenged Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall.
  5. You can have all of mine. They are still screeching and flying everywhere today. Heard on the news that there were a few accidents due to the bugs flying into cars with windows down, people distracted trying to swat them away. Pretty sure the bugs only come out every 17 years to annoy the broccoli out of humanity.
  6. Only ever had turkey before. But if they are geese that lay golden eggs, I want those.
  7. Let's see some things that happened in history on June 11th: 1748 – Denmark adopted the characteristic Nordic Cross flag later taken up by all other Scandinavian countries. 1892 – The Limelight Department, one of the world's first film studios, was officially established in Melbourne, Australia. 1968 – Dr. Lloyd J. Old identified the first cell surface antigens that could differentiate among different cell types. This and other discoveries of his led to many tumor cell immunotherapies.
  8. Anybody else tired of the cicadas yet? It's a good thing these type only come once every 17 years, because they are driving me crazy with their screeching. They are particularly annoying today, as they are also flying all over the place. No point trying to get anything done outside, I just get swarmed with the flying buggers or any equipment gets covered in a dozen of them. Ugh.
  9. Thursday Timeline Trivia for June 10th: 671 – Emperor Tenji of Japan introduced a water clock (clepsydra) called Rokoku. The instrument, which measures time and indicates hours, was placed in the capital of Ōtsu. 1935 – Dr. Robert Smith took his last drink, and Alcoholics Anonymous was founded in Akron, Ohio, United States, by him and Bill Wilson. 2002 – The first direct electronic communication experiment between the nervous systems of two humans was carried out by Kevin Warwick in the United Kingdom.
  10. I don't go to bars or clubs, and have never utilized a QR code. I don't even know how to or if my phone will scan it (it's 8.5 years old and still going).
  11. What Happened Wednesday for June 9th: 1311 – Duccio's Maestà, an influential artwork of the early Italian Renaissance, was unveiled and installed in Siena Cathedral in Siena, Italy. 1959 – The USS George Washington was launched. It was the first nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarine. 1973 – In horse racing, Secretariat won the U.S. Triple Crown.
  12. If I'm behaving like an adult my age should, a salad or a sandwich. Or sometimes get takeaway. If I'm regressing to age 13, it's peanut butter and jelly sandwiches or ice cream. Possibly both.
  13. Timeline trivia for June 8th: 793 – Vikings raided the abbey at Lindisfarne in Northumbria, commonly accepted as the beginning of Norse activity in the British Isles. 1887 – Herman Hollerith applied for US patent #395,781 for the 'Art of Compiling Statistics', which was his punched card calculator. 1949 – George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four was published.
