Randomness XVI: Brains versus Bleach - an Epic Rap Battle in Iambic Pentameter.

Recommended Posts

Was supposed to go to a board game day with Husband and friends. I woke up at 5 am after having been up 'til midnight last night and have been having head pain and stomach upset all day. I managed to get a nap in about the time Husband left which was much needed. Now to switch up some Minivember prep and get thins ready so I'm not scrambling Friday.

And more in its larval form:


All told, 3lbs of bacon. There will also be pancakes and eggs.


And, once this is consumed...a war troll. I'm sure it will be fine.



Well you're an awesome host.


So..thanks for inviting me, and what is the rest going to eat?

Rule 45: Clean up the mess that you make


What happened is: you cleaned up the mess. If instead, you and Boss-of-Juan had worked together to enforce Rule 45 on Juan, his potential to learn things would have been far greater. 

Unfortunately, when you are dealing with a Production Situation there are other people depending on the sabotaged piece of equipment functioning correctly in order for them to complete their jobs in a timely manner.

Sometimes Rule 45 is overruled by the specific circumstances.  This is one of those circumstances.

And yes, I characterize the mishandling of the equipment as sabotage.  Ignorance is no excuse in a situation like this, nor is a lack of common sense.

The application fo Rule 45 to this situation is for the Responsible manager to terminate Juan, for cause.

@Inarah Sorry for no restaurant reviews for Cocoa. Spent all my time at Titusville. Coworker really liked the Preacher Bar tho. Says they have a beer called Kentucky Bourbon. Tastes like bourbon but without the bite. Still a high alcohol content. And manager really liked places along the port.

@Unruly, you should definitely do it next weekend.


Oh man, if I brought a bunch of my cards that got covered in drywall dust when my mom refinished my old closet... Hoo boy... That stuff doesn't like to come off easy when it's been sitting there for 10 years.

I may have found an adventure to run for Call of Cthulhu at PAX.


I found a 32 year old pdf with ASCII maps in a dusty folder in the depths of my external HD, it might be one of the files I managed to acquire in the 90s and saved from various HD failures through sheer luck.


Oh relax, that's how I store all of my Call of Cthulhu adventures. It adds to the impact. My SAN score is N/A anyway.


That somehow seems like the appropriate way to store Call of C'thulu stuff anyway....forbidden knowledge hidden away in some dusty location, just waiting for some unsuspecting fool to find it....:devil:

I painted a whole bulette yesterday. It was awesome. (Burrowing horror, 77372) Per hubby’s suggestion, the scales on the back are very dark, while the sides are a lovely dark purple. 

Sadly, I could not find my box of paints. I hid it too well. But one of folks there had paint adequate to the task and brushes that were not terrible. 

My fingers are paint stained ^_^

So after 25 years or so cheering for the Pittsburgh Penguins I finally got a chance to see them in my first trip to a NHL game in Dallas.  I had a great time made even better by then winning.  I am definitely looking forward to going to another game.

I agree, hockey games are fun to go to.

So, one of my players' characters does tend to cook a lot of the stuff they kill for the party. Not sure whether they'll eat the troll, though. 


They actually didn't get to the troll today. Instead of having one giant encounter with the troll, a cleric and a bunch of mooks, the players killed a sentry, disguised one of their number as that sentry, sent the disguised PC in to raise the alarm at the enemy camp, and wound up fighting several small skirmishes by leading "reinforcement troops" out to be ambushed at the original sentry's outpost. The enemies back at camp rolled miserably to see through the disguise, and now the PCs will be able to fight just the cleric and the troll next week.


I actually love the way this went, even if it wasn't the way I expected it to go. Recon and craftiness worked very well for the party... There's a first time for everything!

When my friend goes to the airport, which he used to have to do often for work and may still with his new job, he always wore as little as possible. Basketball shorts, a t-shirt, and flip flops were his travel wear because it made going through security about 400x easier. He'd have a change of clothes in his carry-on that fit the climate he was flying to, and he'd change at the terminal on arrival. Airlines can't lose your carry-on. If it gets lost, that's on your stupidity.

I have had to check in my carry-on luggage before (small plane and carry-on about the size limit). It would be possible for the airline to lose it in that situation...


That said, I always wear trousers and a jacket on a plane. They keep the things way too cold to be in t-shirt and shorts. I deal with the security by putting all the stuff I normally keep in my trouser pockets into my jacket pockets and just throw that through the scanner. No fuss, no muss.

Well, been sitting here for 3 and a half hours now. No takers, again. And no one else here is playing anything interesting. It's the same people I've seen every week playing Magic and the Pathfinder group in the corner.


I honestly think that if I brought some of my old Magic stuff in to play one of these days the guys here would crap their pants. Pretty much none of my cards are sleeved, or even in deck boxes. A lot of them are totally beat to crap from being played with at lunch in the high school cafeteria and just rubber banded together and thrown in a backpack for travel. These kids have every card sleeved, stored in bulky padded boxes, and they even have special neoprene mats that they play on rather than just playing on the bare or cloth covered tabletop.


A couple of my cards are pretty dang valuable, too. If I brought those out and just played with them like I always did, as described above, I may be able to get one of them to faint...

Have you heard the story behind the Unglued card "Chaos Confetti"?

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, NOVEMBER 2020 Edition.
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
      All HAIL WOOF!

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 


      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please). 

      Reaper #
      Color Name
      Color Description
      Fire Red
      Bright red
      Clotted Red
      Dull red
      Lava Orange
      Volcanic orange
      Orange Brown
      Dull orange

      Bright yellow
      Brilliant green
      Bright green
      Olive Green
      Olive dull green
      True Blue
      Bright blue
      Heather Blue
      Dull light blue
      Imperial Purple
      Deep purple
      Violet Red
      A very misnamed color; somewhere between burgundy and magenta. Not violet.
      Blush Pink
      Very pink
      Earth Brown
      Generic brown
      Terran Khaki
      Light brown
      Mint Green
      Bright pastel green
      Cloudy Grey
      Generic grey
      Marine Teal
      Teal, blueish
      Palomino Gold
      Earthy gold yellow
      Pure Black
      Super black. Critical threat!
      Pure White
      Super white. Critical threat!
      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
      Anyways, onto the rolls!

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!

      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. 
      Baby needs a bath first.
