  1. @TaleSpinner this thing ^ is called a Long Armed BigFin Squid. It is 26 feet long. Magnapinna Pacifica. Flumph / Squid ? not a lotta difference.
  2. Arthurians, Bretonnians... ...Giants and Dragons abound, but there’s a lack of Dragonslayers. These ^ as well.

    I think the WOOF Air Service is more effective. Or maybe that is SEAL training?

    I once had to dig Sparrow nests out of the hose ...they were inside the house... Sparrows like the warm. It was a half-size horse. A little mare, about knee high to me. I have no idea. Possibly both. In the case of some specific cats it is none. Thor was a gray tomcat owned by my cousin and he caused zero reaction.

    I actually like both dogs and cats, and they seem to like me. I like dogs, cats, and horses. Of those three, some, but not all Cats trigger an allergic response. So I am forced to like cats a bit less. I could be allergic to a horse or two. My sample is only about 3.5 horses.

    The Juniper provides cover live or dried up. It is warm in that exhaust path. Warm half-dead Juniper >>> Cold Living Juniper. (If you like those little birds get caught up on your laundry. Frequent small loads.)

    I might know why this one happened. There was a super-bad lightning storm that wandered past DFW airport Sunday evening. A bolt took out a TRACON center’s transmitters. (They said it’s a small, non-descript building just East of the airport.) No TRACON; no flights entering its Zone Of Control. It’s Labeled ZFW on this map: Flights that were in the air got diverted, all departures within ZFW got cancelled. It was a bit of a mess.

    Reclining your seat on airplanes is bad idea: https://www.foxnews.com/travel/air-canada-passenger-dark-empty-plane-alone So much for the PSA. Now back to your bacon.
  11. Yeah, I am not sure about D&D anymore but for Oldhammer/Warhammer a 50mm square was a Giant. Chariots and Dinosaurs occupied a 50 wide by 100 deep rectangle. I kinda thought 100x100 was a legit size in new D&D like @PaganMegan and @TheAuldGrump play with the maps that are all 5 foot squares. Argent would fit in a 4 square X 4 square space on a rpg map. Or...It might be 5 squares long. I should check.
  12. Sculptures that fit (that is to say need) 40 or 50mm bases are Huge or Giant size category per the rules I know about. There is nothing wrong with giving each foot of a sculpture its own gaming base. Four footed dragon? four 50mm round gaming bases? ...thatsa properly based dragon that is. This ^ ... .I have yet to try the notion I explained above on an actual sculpt, but I have about three candidates.

    Is there a TwitterBot that creates random dungeon rooms? (For RPGs !)

    When a dice rolls up like... ... ^ that after being talked to. It seems like backtalk to me. But... I have not ever gone to the lengths of subjecting a badly behaving D20 to a circle of shame.

    Do you suppose Modern Naval Theory more or less overlaps the same time frame as Modern Art (1900 — 1960) and ended then? Navies stopped building new ships with armored belts by about 1960 or 70. The last hurrah, of the last battleships, which were built with Armored Belts was in the 70s and 80s. (USN returned vintage ships built for WW2 to a few last years of service.) Contemporary Naval Theory is different? has advanced further? Kevlar is involved? intercepting torpedos is a thing?

    Will you be working for the same CEO, same corporate entity, but different local manager, different building in your new town?

    I have it on a machine currently. I used to have it on a Win7 laptop. This is ^ Doug being nice. I have found Inkscape to be non-intuitive and on that older laptop: Hinky. And it seems to lack tools for doing what I want, doing it now, doing it simply. This is ^ me being less nice. I wouldn’t mind trying stuff. Experimenting along with you. Attempting to figure things out. I’d like to find out if it can be any use to me. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ...well good luck with it. As a wise man Griffin once said:

    I know nothing about plumbing except to have the number of a good plumber stored on my phone. Uhh Huh. Preach it!!! Rant on! brother Unruly. Rant on... Or ...Gouda, ...Muenster, ...Colby, ...I’m no cheese snob.

    I confess to being clueless about the original joke ...completely failed to understand... much less the automating of it.

    We're moving to Wyoming at the end of August. Congratulations..!! Are you saying they gave you the responsibility to check the work of others, but no extra money to do that, and no power to discipline them when they mess up? Ask for extra money, see what they say... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Had to look up what a fibula is. @Flit of course his ankle felt better! It was his leg that was broken.
