    How do you prefer your space aliens? Monstery? big eyes and tiny grey bodies? dude wearing a space suit and a weird forehead? something else?

     

    Puppeteer-controlled, a la Farscape. And all the other humanoid types in the show.

    So on July 31st, 2022, in Nashville, TN, “Jim Crockett Promotions Presents: Ric Flair's Last Match".

     

    When I started at my current job, I heard cries of "woo!"coming from down the line periodically throughout the night. My first thought was, "Is there a bunch of Ric Flairs working here?"

     

    Turns out they actually just go "woo!" every 100 units that are completed. The team leader at the end of the line thinks it's good for morale... others find it irritating.

     

    I think it's a commercial in the making for the company and Ric Flair... he apparently needs the money if he's still trying to eek out one more match. And he did the CarShield commercials recently.

    Do you have a mailbox? Do packages fit in it or is it just for letters?

     

    (totally inspired by my new stargrave book waiting outside for 5 hours during expected tornadoes)

     

    Yes, I do. It's at the end of a road, on a decline (or incline, depending on how you view it). In winter months, the mailman frequently gets stuck on snow and ice that builds up in the road because it rarely gets plowed, and the mailman never learns to just get out and walk to the box.

     

    It fits smaller packages and large envelopes, or those shipping bags that clothes sometimes come in. Not sure if a gaming book would fit in it, but a hardback novel does.

  4. Answer time.

     

    Question 129: Name of the Scooby-Doo van?

     

    Answer:

    Spoiler

    The Mystery Machine.

     

     

    Question 130: World’s first mass-produced car to feature an all-aluminium body?

     

    Answer:

    Spoiler

    The Honda NSX, in 1990. Internet sources may tell you it was the Audi A8, but that wasn't produced until 1994, albeit in larger quantities than the NSX.

     

     

    Question 131: How many claws does a domestic cat have?

     

    Answer:

    Spoiler

    18 (5 on each front paw, 4 on each back paw)

     

     

    Question 132: Four-stringed instrument has notes traditionally tuned to G, C, E, A?

     

    Answer:

    Spoiler

    The ukulele

     

     

    Question 133: Velcro was inspired by what natural items?

     

    Answer:

    Spoiler

    Burdock burrs. Invented by Swiss engineer George de Mestral, the name comes from the words "velours" (French for velvet) and "crochet."

     

     

    Question 134: What does a bar over a Roman numeral indicate?

     

    Answer:

    Spoiler

    Multiply the numeral by 1000. Roman numeral C (100) with a bar drawn over it would be 100,000.

     

     

    Question 135: The three things are you never supposed to do with a mogwai?

     

    Answer:

    Spoiler

    1. Put it in bright light (the light can kill it).

    2. Get it wet (it shoots furballs that multiply into more mogwai).

    3. Feed it after midnight (it cocoons and turns into a gremlin).

     

    One point for each of those you got correct.

     

     

    Ok, 7 questions asked. 6 worth one point each, and the 7th worth potentially 3 makes 9 total possible for the round.

     

    Combined with the running tally, that makes 140 total possible points thus far.

  5. Having a hard time deciding which level to pledge at. I don't have a 3d printer, so getting the physical prints is a must. The question is whether to spring for the STL files (which I am leaning towards) or not. Reached out to my brother to see if he knows anyone with 3d printer who'd be willing to do some printing service for me.

     

    Definitely giving it some level of pledge.

    What's something about painting, building, or sculpting miniatures that you wish you knew when you were getting started? 

     

    Wrapping PTFE tape around the threads of your superglue before screwing on the applicator tip, and keeping the glue in a sealed jar filled with a desiccant (silica packs) will save you a lot of money and hassle of it going bad.

    Do you prime all your minis? do you use the same primer for all materials? what color or colors do you like to use?

     

    Yes, I do. I don't care what material it is, I'm putting primer on it. I do not use the same primer for all materials. Krylon rattle can primer for anything that doesn't have an issue with tackiness, and either Vallejo or Stynylrez that I brush on for Bones. Lately I have been using the Stynylrez for everything because of weather cooperation. An airbrush setup is on my wishlist of things to purchase within a year.

     

    I just use standard black/grey/white, white being the least used. grey the most used.

    What is the best doughnut?

     

    Chocolate icing with sprinkles, raised dough so they are light and airy. The cake-type is too dense and dry at times, hard to inhale 2 or 3 of them without a beverage. Raised is perfect for quick consumption.

    If anyone has a few million burning a hole in their pocket, this 5' 11" bottle of whiskey is going up for sale on the 25th May. Equivalent to 444 standard bottles, The Intrepid is a 32 year old single malt from the Macallan distillery and is hoped to break the record of the most expensive bottle of scotch ever sold at auction.

    I am sure some 20-some year-old YouTuber with more cash than is justifiable will win it and find it quite tasty when they mix it with root beer.

    I  can judge "chopped" no [email protected]

    Ehhh what is "chopped" a gameshow or an execution?

     

    Gameshow. Though the thought of having the loser executed has appeal for celebrity episodes...

     

    Each round they get a basket with mystery ingredients they have to use in that round's dish (appetizer, entree or dessert round). Generally the judges whine and complain that they didn't highlight the ingredients, that it was a disjointed dish or that they didn't "understand" the dish. And the loser of each round has been "chopped" aka eliminated.

    Tell us about your local nuisance animals, have you seen them cause any interesting trouble recently?

     

    (This question brought to you by the squirrel that managed to knock over a saw horse)

     

    Birds. They keep pooping on my car, and I just washed it this weekend. *shakes fist in the air*

    How tall are you?

    Either I am confusing you with someone else or the last time you were posting contents on the topic of weight it was about having excess pounds.

     

    6'5"

     

    You are likely confusing me with someone else. Last time I posted about weight it was due to having lost 40 lbs that I didn't need to lose, which resulted in my current ear problems.

    As for the personal chef position, I'm currently employed by my girl and vixens who will not let me go...

     

    Whatever they're pay you, I'll double it.

    Gaining weight in a healthy way.

    Exercise emphasis on weight lifting, muscles add weight.

    Food..bananas and nuts provide fat and are still healthy.

     

    That's pretty much the goal, to do it in a healthy way. Luckily the new job I have one process that requires me to lift something 15 lbs, and then another something that is 5-6 pounds, and repeat the process for about 2 hours... I get about 200 reps in a night on both of those. Plus walking back and forth back to the cart. Plenty of low weight, high rep. Just have to add high-calorie healthy snacks/meals, and some higher weight, low rep exercises.

  14. I need @Glitterwolf as a personal chef.

     

    Doctor said I need to gain weight. I had managed to get up to 190 lbs last year but now it's dropped back to 181. My ear problems are still persisting (though I'm either growing accustomed to it or it has slightly improved), best course of treatment right now is to still try to regain the lining of fat around the ear canal. Unfortunately it's not a license to eat whatever I want. Can't trigger another health problem by trying to solve one.

     

    To be 19-20 years old again like some of the people I work with, where their biggest health problem is a pimple...

    You need to get rid of a pile of money by making a game show. You can't keep any of the cash for yourself. what sort of game show do you make?

     

    We pit annoying reality stars/celebrities (Real Housewives, Kardashians, Bachelors/Bachorlettes etc) on an American Gladiators-style obstacle course... only there's a lot more spikes, sharp objects, buzzsaws, firepits, fire-blasters, etc... maybe it's more American Gladiators meets Mad Max Thunderdome.
