  1. I can't remember a single one. Poor audio quality didn't help either.
  2. A giant Canadian Cobra Chicken. It's scariest power would be to spawn regular sized ones. Lots of them. It was genetically created by accident by a conglomerate of car washes (i.e. Big Carwa) trying to increase revenue.
  3. It was on mostly during the 70s and 80s during Saturday morning cartoons on ABC. CBS and NBC had their own things that weren't as catchy.
  4. Bah! I'm a native French speaker, and today is Mercury day (i.e. Mercredi). I blame the Romans.
  5. SHARE MY SUFFERING! (...till the suffrage) They say our solar system is centered 'round the sun, Nine planets, large and small, parading by. But somewhere out in space, There's another shining face That you might see some night up in the sky. Interplanet Janet, she's a galaxy girl, A solar system Ms. from a future world, She travels like a rocket with her comet team And there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen, No, there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen. She's been to the Sun, it's a lot of fun, It's a hot-spot, It's a gas! Hydrogen and helium in a big, bright, glowing mass. It's a star, it's a star! So Janet got an autograph! Mercury was near the Sun so Janet stopped by, But the mercury on Mercury was much too high, so Janet split for Venus but on Venus she found She couldn't see a thing for all the clouds around. Earth looked exciting, kind of green and inviting, So Janet thought she'd give it a go. But the creatures on that planet looked so very weird to Janet, She didn't even dare to say hello. It's a bird, it's a plane! Why, it must be a UFO, but it was: Interplanet Janet, she's a galaxy girl, A solar system Ms. from a future world, She travels like a rocket with her comet team And there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen, No, there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen. Mars is red and Jupiter's big And Saturn shows off its rings. Uranus is built on a funny tilt And Neptune is its twin, And Pluto, little Pluto, is the farthest planet from our Sun. They say our solar system is not alone in space. The Universe has endless mystery. Some future astronaut May find out that what he'd thought Was a shooting star instead turned out to be... Interplanet Janet, she's a galaxy girl, A solar system Ms. from a future world, She travels like a rocket with her comet team And there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen, No, there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen. 👨‍🚀
  6. Help! I've been stuck with Schoolhouse Rock ear worms for several days! I just *had* to look up the lyrics from those YouTube videos, didn't I?
  7. Grab it by the scruff of its neck! If it acts like regular size kittens, it'll go into "quiet mode".
  8. I have an apartment mail box, so it's only large enough for standard letter size or larger magazine size that can fold. My previous apartment had no mailboxes, but a centralized town post office. Very secure, but lousy hours. And the apartment before that one had the newer communal mailboxes down the street. It could accept small boxes, but the location of the mailbox itself wasn't optimal as is was slightly lower than the street level and deep puddles would accumulate after rain or during snow melts. But as a side note, anything I order, I usually try to ship directly to my post office.
  9. 6 points with the Mogwai bonus ones. Total 80!
  10. I pretty much do for all of them now, even the Bones. Since I have several colors of primer (green, yellow, rust red, metallic, white, grey, black), it doubles as base coats.
  11. So you're saying this might not be the best day to visit the county fair that popped up yesterday at the mall next door to where I live? ... During our first heat wave of the season. (expected 33°C/91°F) ... Oh and I need to bleed this afternoon. (regular bloodwork) Maybe I should stay in?
  12. Crullers. Different toppings are allowed. When someone brings a variety box of donuts at work, they disappear fast.
  13. I still have difficulty with color scheme selection when it comes to which color I should use to make my shadows *AND* highlights without drifting into "too blue, too green, too yellow, etc." (something the triads helped with), or without going with the "add black/white" path and end with muted greys or pastels. Additionally, are there any techniques to keep a common color scheme and make them warmer/cooler? Granted, I haven't done much research on the subject, but "add yellow for warmer, add blue for cooler" is not a satisfactory answer.
  14. Currently, I have to add homo sapiens to this list. Just one specific older neighbour that really needs a lot of oversight for his own good. Luckily, social services are taking care of him and he's moving to a old age home soon.
  15. I don't mind it, but I prefer to maximize my usage when I do it. Especially with today's gas prices. What I *do* like about driving is not the ride itself, but the lack of other distractions. Allowing me to listen to the radio and even zone out during longer drives. I'm a pretty passive driver overall. For basic errands, I live close enough to several stores that I can go there by foot. But the more specialized the need, the more I need my car. Sadly, my current city's public transportation is inadequate for my current needs. It's a weird thing I miss from living in Montreal. Driving in Montreal was always hell, but I lived near the subway system, and it gave me access to tons of places.
  16. I haven't. Considering I do most of my orders during seasonal promos, they run out quick. But I do have a ton of pumpkin orange and breast cancer awareness pink.
  17. [Double take] I got 6 points?!? Total 74. Why do I know this stuff? My sister would've gotten the full point for Footloose, not me.
  18. Most of the old Godzilla movies come to mind. The stories and creatures themselves make very, very little sense. But huge stomping kaijus are always a blast.
  19. Weather wise, it was a lovely sunny weekend. It helped compensate for some of the annoyances that popped up. Went to a MET opera live broadcast. But the signal was garbled, making it unwatchable. Seems like other theaters had the same problem. Got a refund and an unusually free afternoon. I put on my summer tires... and got my first sunburn of the year on my folically-challenged forehead. Game night got cancelled. GM got caught in the middle of bathroom renovations.
  20. In all seriousness ReaperCon has been the most interesting. Both as participant and spectator. Seeing the creativity from all levels of talent is simply inspiring and sometimes intimidating (those gold levels are something else). For pure fun, watching very young children playing team sports is guaranteed adorable entertainment.
  21. I don't think I've ever eaten a "proper" taco. It's not something I have much experience with. We have very few Mexican restaurants to begin with, and all the Taco Bells in the province closed down last winter. So I've only ever had tacos from cafeterias or ordinary store bought shells with stuff from the fridge. Turns out my "favourite" side is whatever fell back on my plate while trying to eat them. And not by choice.
  22. If we're talking about modern card games, excluding the collectible ones (MtG, Yu-Gi-Oh!, etc.), then I've played plenty of Fluxx and Guillotine, with a smattering of Munchkin games, Chez Geek games, Lunch Money, Ninja Burger, and a few other names that escape me.
  23. I know that not all countries use the same "standard" suits of spades-hearts-diamonds-clubs and that there are tons of games. Yet I only know of a handful of games. The more unusual ones were those I found in my Windows/Games folders. Never heard of faro, so I never had the opportunity to win, lose, or cheat. Considering we're May the 4th, I know more about the fictional Sabacc game than faro.
  24. I remember your motto well: "If it's not metal, it's [email protected]!" So I'm guessing plastic and polka is out of the question? How about resin and reggae? SiOcast and show tunes?
  25. So in the end, I pledged on almost one of everything EXCEPT: the men at arms; no paints (for now); no extras. Current total pledge: $593 before S&H. I too have to wonder now if B6 will be quicker and easier to produce as it's overall smaller than the previous ones.
