Anyone backing the digital version of Twilight Struggle?

I would imagine that, given that Q has been shown up by multiple different humans on more than one occasion, The Doctor could wipe the floor with him.

Depending on what fanfiction you're reading, the Doctor wins against pretty much anyone. He's kind of like the Batman of the scifi geek scene.


Good ideas are usually just bad ideas a stubborn person eventually fixed.

I just read My Immortal. And legolas by laura.

I deserve some kind of reward, right?


Just assume I'm always doing that.

Damn it, Ronway!

Whaaa....and people actually take this stuff seriously? I mean....that multi-choice test thingy is actually a thing? A serious test that kids are supposed to take as part of their schooling? Wow, well, I suppose I can at least say that I feel sorry for the kids if that's the kind of "education" they have to deal with receiving...

I prefer no syrup if the waffle in question is a potato waffle.

It appears that while I was at Origins last month, someone stole part of my soul. I'm in the top right image! You may recognize those chops as making an appearance on the card Cursed Acolyte from GloomWeaver's deck.

Actually, those are pretty cool. How was Origins?

Those images are quite exciting! Seeing that Sentinels of the Multiverse was still being demoed, even without >G there is exciting! Plus all those games. They nearly stacked up to my shoulder. So beautiful! I still popped in for a game as well, i'm not addicted or anything...

 

Origins was very fun! Even though >G decided to skip out on it this year, it would of been fun to finally meet Paul and have him sign my box. I week of non-stop boarding gaming is exactly what I needed!

I would if I could, the main reason I was able to go to Origins was because some of my friends were going up there and they had a spare place for someone to sleep, so they invited me to tag along.

The discussion on accents reminded me of this quiz. See how accurate it is, although, it might only work if you are in the US.

It gave me Overland Park as one of my answers., which not only is in the same state, but about a 40 minute drive, and houses Table Top Game and Hobby, which is the game store I typically go to to buy games and where I had picked up the first edition of Sentinels of the Multiverse.

Reno, Santa Rosa, and Modesto. This explains why I don't fit in in Indiana. I've never even visited the states those cities are in, either.

Yes, it's quite sad! So whenever I am down that way, I make a day of it! There are a couple of restuarants that I really enjoy down that way. So I swing by one of them whenever I go. Makes an awesome trip even more awesome! Oh great... Now I am craving one of those places...

Mine gave me Rockford, IL, Aurora, IL, and Grand Rapids, MI. Somehow it missed Chicago, which is geographically in the triangle between all three and was darker than any of the three.

That joke was awesome! It was the best joke ever! I loved every second of it and will immediately get it tattooed on my forearm and email it out to every person I've ever met and crochet it into a huge wall hanging and get a parrot and train it to recite the joke constantly and get my name changed to Guise by deed poll.

Better?
