  1. Isn't "early retirement" basically the same as "coming late to the NEET party"?

    1. Raison d'être

      Raison d'être

      Technically, yes. But I think NEET has acquired a meaning beyond its literal definition, and that excludes people who've worked for long enough to retire early. They are NEET skinwalkers.

  2. Today marks three years.  Doesn't seem that long ago.

  3. Is a dragon a reptile, or is it really a bird?

     

    Now hear me out: I'm not just saying that because they fly.  A dragon is basically a dinosaur, and dinosaurs are supposedly more closely related to birds, right?  So wouldn't that make a dragon a bird, technically?

      Weeaboo counter argument: Japanese word for Dinosaur is 恐竜 meaning "scary dragon."  Ergo dinosaurs are dragons and thus dragons are dinosaurs.

      I think we can conclude that Eastern dragons are dinosaurs (birds), while Western dragons are the result of pterosaurs interbreeding with serpents (reptiles).

       

      Let's just ignore the fact that Eastern dragons tend to look way more serpent-like than Western ones.

      Apparently modern definitions class birds as reptiles, so... moot point.

      I want you guys to know, if I'm ever found dead in my apartment and it's ruled as a suicide, it was probably a setup by the people who hate Candlejack memes. They've been after me ever since I

      Microsoft Word loves to give me that little red dotted line with a suggestion for "conciseness." Can't they see I'm trying to pad my wordcount here?

      You clearly haven't seen the Weegee Wiki if you think this is surprising. Besides, cringers in every game OST video on Youtube always comment about how the song is used in their imaginary game, and cringers on Deviantart make up their own cartoons or whatever all the time.

  20. Finally figured out why the current Shadowverse meta pisses me off:

     

    -Efficient damage spells: cap out at 4 damage.

     

    -Current broken creatures: Have defenses starting at 5.

    2. Gyokuyoutama

      Gyokuyoutama

      Basically, except this is in the equivalent of vintage.

       

      They've just never printed an efficient removal spell that does more than 4 damage (except for Wind Blast I guess, but that needs to be boosted to do that meaning it isn't reliable early game).

       

      The problem is that they've been printing more and more tough to deal with followers that have 5 defense on evolve (and often some way to interfere with follower to follower combat).

       

      The game really needs a 5 cost spell that deals 6 damage to all followers.

  21. Had someone e-mail me several times over the course of the week saying I had sent him the wrong file.  At first I assumed I did and resent it.  But then he said that I sent him the wrong file again. 

     

    I double and triple checked, and it was the right file and so I sent a long e-mail explaining to him what the purpose of the file was and how I know he has the right file.  He responds almost immediately "No, it's the wrong file again!" 

     

    Then a few minutes later he sends an e-mail saying "Nevermind, it's the right file.  I didn't read it before so I didn't realize it had the right information."

      At least he finally got it. I'd never admit that mistake because I'm an asshole.

  22. The first rule of card games: If you tech out your deck to counter a popular deck, you will never see that deck ever again in your life.

      There have been several times where I've set out to make a deck that breaks a certain card, and then after a lot of testing and revisions I end up with a really effective deck.... that doesn't include the card I set out to break.

  23. Excerpt from recent e-mail from the dean:

     

    "When making online versions of courses, please make sure that they are accessible to all students.  Keep in mind that not all students have the same level of technology.  Some students might not have smart phones, and some might not even have access to computers or internet connections.  Nevertheless, your course should be accessible by all of these students."

     

    So apparently the new online course must be usable by people who are not online???
