I have officially become an old fart.  I'm in Florida, in winter, sitting in a Waffle house.

Is that with, or without your RV parked outside?

Mr. Thorne just came in with the share. What in the holy hell do I do with 18 habenjeros?!

That's.. about 14 more peppers than usually goes in my chili, and 16 more than I feel comfortable doing tacos with.  I'm half-tempted to stuff them with cheese and wish them on the roommate, who likes his noms spicier than either Mr. Thorne or I. 

 

Do they freeze? 

 

Roast the leftovers. They will stay tasty for a long time. There are lots of roasting instructions in the pipes.

 

And Habaneros* have a great flavor (I prefer the flavor to that of Jalapeños.)

 

Note that Habanero does not use an "ñ", because it's root word is "Habana"

Excellent. And thanks for the spelling clarification (what? there are days I can barely spell English, don't expect me to get a foreign language right on the first try....).

 

Dunno about roasting (although that's a thought, and I like it...) but freezing is definitely in the cards. I have a food-zipper and I KNOW HOW TO USE IT! FEAR MY FOOD STORAGE-FU!!

 

... go away, I haven't had my tea yet. :p

Not so much aimed at you. The word is nearly always mispronounced and misspelled (I did both myself for a long time), because of its superficial similarity to Jalapeño. "La Habana" == "Havana", btw.)

 

But then few native English speakers understand that diacritical marks aren't just decoration, they actually change the sound represented. (See: SPÜÜ.) Or that Cyrillic characters aren't just rotated or reflected Latin characters, for that matter.

I speak a little German. 

You would not believe the number of people who  try to use ß to replace Bs in words - probably to sidestep somebody having taken their name - and end me up sitting there going, 'hold up, what the balls?!' 

Actually.. maybe you would. You been around longer.....

I'll believe that - but then again I've done a lot of work with searching of digitised content which includes some German content...

Random Question:

How big are the Giant Ants in your RPG world...?

(...’cause I’d like to know, ...for reasons, ...nose-to-tail distance...)

Imo, GIANT ants need to be at least 20 feet long.

They do. But what you can also do is cut them in half, string them, and dry them. Don't try to dry them whole, because they're more than likely to mold rather than properly dry. And then you lose all 50+ that you strung up and you don't get any habaneros for later.

 

Then you can grind them into homemade chili powder using a spice/coffee grinder or just toss them in a baggie and throw them into recipes later.

 

If you use a dehydrator you can probably dry them whole, but I prefer just air drying my peppers. Dehydrators are cheating and can affect the flavors of some foods because they actually heat them.

As someone of German heritage, who may not speak the language but knows the alphabet and pronunciation, that drives me nuts. Even my mom, who is not on the German side, thinks the ß is a B. So the the German gravy mix we all love, Jägersoße, gets pronounced as Jägersobe by her. Regardless of how many times I tell her otherwise.

A little annoyed right now. Traveling, and one of our favorite chains is Famous Dave's, always a place to count on for us. But, we have always eaten in the places and tonight we got to our hotel and a bit tired, so we called for carry out. Got it home and no bbq sauce, no utensils, just left it rather plain...

We learned our lesson, eat in from now on!

Studying has been going well, but about an hour ago, my headphones stopped working. The bluetooth was turned off... actually, the bluetooth seemed to be missing. Had someone pulled it when I wasn't looking?? Doing a bunch of googling, reinstalling drivers, restarting the computer, updating windows, and chrome, and... still no evidence that this laptop is even bluetooth capable. 

 

At least my headphones come with a cord.

      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. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      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).

      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!
      (end edit)

      Link to original challenge: 
      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.
