    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Um....is this something on TV? (I don't watch much TV...) Londo Mollari, Babylon V, a streaming TV thing ...is my best guess. It almost seems like it'd be easier to just be able top do it tomorrow and get it out of the way. I think @Unruly got the One Trial option, from a one/day-or-one/trial Jury Duty System awhile back. Can’t remember exactly. Been too long.

    Things you might have tried... ”Do you also have a problem with Y?” “Be glad you don’t have a problem with Y...” ”Who do think caused the problem with X?” “How many people have noticed the problem with X ?” ”Can you carry on working in spite of the problem with X ?” “We have a special office that deals with problem X, when they are free I will transfer your call to them...standby.” ( Then you transfer the problem X call to the co-worker you detest the most. )

    Provide her (the child) with paper and permanent markers. Whatever she draws ask her to ‘sign it’ and then tape it up proudly on these work bench doors.

    Hmmmmmm... I hope this outfit in Dallas is not one of yours... https://dfw.cbslocal.com/2019/07/15/jims-car-wash-owner-fight-orders-shut-down-business-hearing/ ( The Police are so tired of repeatedly responding to the site the city is trying to eradicate the business. The most recent shoot-out where someone was killed doesn’t help at all. )

    I went and looked in the Apiary gardens and did not find such a thread. And I guess my memory is poor or I missed some or all of these posts before they were dealt with.

    That has happened to me! I have been there!! It also proves that you are much nicer than I am — also, more patient. There is to this day a circular hole in a ceiling I theoretically own. A hole shaped like a smoke detector with wires dangling out of it. It turns out they will cease making obnoxious noises, (in fact any noises at all), if someone snarls like an enraged bear, clamps onto the thing with a bear-like human paw, and rips them straight down, right off the ceiling. Best not to ask how I know.

    Very much hoping she is now in some better place. Condolences.

    Did you figure out search terms that will work? Where does this set ^ of arms fall on the lean versus bulbous scale for your purposes? I hate when those happen.

    I don’t have Kings of War on my list. But I have the Rules and assorted Oldhammer minis that would work for it. Maybe I should add it. ?? I once had the (now OOP) TSR Battlesystem Rules for mass combat (not to be confused with the Battlesystem clip together terrain product) but at the time I had no Miniatures armies. Instead, the cardboard counters that came with the game were used. So, that one didn’t make the lists either. I think I have a copy of the Skirmish** Battlesystem*** rules but no miniatures of mine have ever tried them. **Real generals and field marshalls think of battles between 400 or so on each side as a Skirmish but! tabletop gamers would think of that as a massive, mass battle. ***I am confused by the re-use of Battlesystem as a trademarked product name within the tabletop gaming field. I would have expected it to be locked up tightly by Hasbro/WotC or somebody. Maybe they sold off the name?

    A pole fishing spear with 3 points is a Trident. The interwebz sez a similar spear with 5 points is a Quindent.

    What fair? The Whut? (There are way too many searchable events with that phrase in the official title...)

    A question very much like this was asked by @Glitterwolf last month June 20th. But, hey, new games have been published, new armies may have been acquired since then... Yes. But oddly enough, this has never included D&D or any of its descendant RPGs. Oops...this gives me the excuse to revise and extend my lists. You asked.

    Assuming you get power back at some point. What’s a coop shift? Co-Op? Or have you taken up pidgeonkeeping?

    He’d need a battery powered device; connecting to an internet hookup operating on generator backup; which in turn would need to find Comcast or some ISP also up and running on something other than ConEd power... ...just to answer.

    What would.... what now? *blinks confuzzledly* World Wide Miniatures Day July 13th. Today... (for a value of July 13th that lasts until Midway Island is done with Saturday...so sez I). There is a thread (click here) around here somewhere started by @maxstyles

    There is only one thing to do Red. Snap pictures of her, to embarrass her with later in life.

    It looks like there is a band of scar tissue holding the rest of the tissue down (creating the smile) It could soften and fade over time. Did your Docs give you anything like an ointment to rub on it? Also the zones either side of the scar might a be a bit swollen and irritated. Knife tip visited; then the needle that installed the stitches; thumbs can get annoyed with repeated stabbity events. Give it some time is all I’m sayin’. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ WWMD Thread?

    Went looking for a Definition of Earthquake: https://earthquake.usgs.gov/learn/topics/megaqk_facts_fantasy.php This ^ has a lot of useful ^ information. No. Or, perhaps yes, except I noticed nothing.
  22. Update: It has been July 13th in Auckland New Zealand for about 6 hours (**as I type this). This means there are ~42 hours left for WWMD. (That is: For the next 42 hours, somewhere in the world it will be July 13th. **For instance, July 13th just began on the lonely, lonely island of Diego Garcia.) So, far I have painted nothing. Better luck the rest of you.

    Gas leak would be Taco Bell. There are such things stalking the land as combined KFC/TacoBell drive-thru restaurants. This one that asploded! was in North Carolina, but I doubt it was a combo joint.
