It's unreasonably hot! What do you do for dinner when it is too hot to turn on the oven?

 

Nothing different than normal, heat doesn't bother me too much. I'm one of those weirdo's who like being out in the summer sun and heat. A little extra temperature in the kitchen is fine. Besides, I've typically got an ice cold beer on tap to cool me down if needed.

How did you know? Who told you!?

 

Oh wait, you didn't ask that because it actually is unreasonably hot here, you asked because... Nevermind.

 

Salad!

Go out to dinner/order something for delivery.

 

Suck it up, use the oven, and be sure to hydrate.

 

Go outside and grill something (there's usually at least a little bit of a breeze) and hydrate.

You walk out of a bar or club late at night, on a lamp post is a yellow and purple sticker with a 3 eyed dragon on it and a QR code. Do you scan the code?

 

No, because I don't scan QR codes for anything.

What am I doing in a bar or club late at night? I'm too old for late night nonsense. But anyways, I'm not scanning any random codes. And if I have my tagging sharpie on me neither is anyone else. Cause I'm drawing a mustache on the dragon that hopefully covers that code.

HAHAHAHHAHA!!!!

Given my age, I'm asleep or bothering my girlfriend at that time.

I no longer attend bars or clubs late at night.

 

QR codes? Get off my lawn with that nonsenses you Hoodlum!

No...I don't go to bars/clubs AND I have no idea what a QR code is.

I still don't know how to scan a QR code and have no intention of learning it. 

 

edited to add: I didn't like bars or clubs when I was young enough to actually be going to them. I stopped going to open mics when I started bringing books to pass the time before I was called on stage.

I don't go to bars or clubs, and have never utilized a QR code. I don't even know how to or if my phone will scan it (it's 8.5 years old and still going).

So many wrong things happening here at the same time.

  • Me in a bar or club. Never happens.
  • Late at night. Never happens unless I'm at a friend's place.
  • Attention grabbing sticker with *only* a QR code and no text. Suspicious, and will probably infect my system.
  • My 8 year old Windows phone doesn't have network connection. Even when free wifi is available, it's not supported by most browsers anymore.

I'll let someone else scan it.

What? Where? 

LOLZ. No. 

 

I've only used a QR code when a restaurant was being obnoxiously trendy and refusing to use normal menus. It took longer to pull up the damn thing than it would have taken the waitress to go back to the entrance and get me one.

I'd ignore it.

QR codes are pretty nice though, from an information developer standpoint.  For instance, on all Toro products these days, we put a QR code (the funky square with all the little squares that look like old TV static) on the serial decal.  Have a question and don't want to go searching for your Op Manual?  Just aim the photo app of your phone or tablet at it and it will auto take you to the product information page on our website, where you can open a copy of the OM as either an interactive HTML web page or a PDF, your choice. Or you can go straight to the parts catalog an look up parts for your machine.

Here is a sample we made back when we first started doing this:

(and yes the QR code in the above picture does work, feel free to try it if you like.)

Nope. 

There's a few reasons why but mostly I have no smartphone to scan things with.

Well, for this scenario to make sense, I'm either dreaming or in a VR game that I've somehow forgotten I joined?
Either way, as every GM I've ever had will attest to, I will go out of my way to not follow the "shiny clue of obviousness", and would instead do absolutely anything but scan the QR code.

 

If, somehow, I ended up in a bar late at night in the real world (not sure how that would happen, but anyway), I might google "yellow and purple 3 eyed dragon sticker QR code" or something similar to see what was up with that, but I certainly wouldn't scan it.
