  1. I just lost time...

      Nah, my guy stopped selling because he got a job as a therapist about a month or so ago. 
  2. I just lost time...

      Yeah, I'm moderately concerned. Just another fucking thing to deal with :There's no emoji for pointing a finger-gun at your head, so just imagine one here and don't forget the extreme eye roll: I haven't been on my meds for a while, not even my Ambien or Klonopin, because I've been avoiding stress fairly well. So unfortunately I can't blame it on them... which is why I'm alarmed. I literally hadn't done anything of note yesterday. I got home from hanging out at the local Magic store at about 5:30 or so and mowed the grass until about 8-ish which brings us to the warped timeline.    I'm 50/50 on calling my provider vs not giving a fuck.    :sigh: Again, sorry folks. Probably shouldn't have made this thread. 
  3. Time to get banned again.  :fencing:     Mr.OJ, The county can pressure the State to act and this is a warning to take care who is given the authority of an elected position. Scotty, you've gained a fan. I love the idea of the people being punished if they fuck up their most important civil duty and elect to office someone unqualified/unfit for the position, and it's about the only way I can think of to improve voter turnout which is a huge issue in America. People need to learn to get off their fucking instragrams and take responsibility for their country.      HA! I uh... I understood that reference.  :smug:   You guys have already made all the arguments that need to be made with much better lawyering than I could provide, I just wanted to respond to a few (of many) posts that stood out to me. 
  4. I just lost time...

    Bah! A couple of witty remarks, looking at you Slog. For the rest of you, Internet Magic was not the culprit here, this isn't the first time this has happened. About a year ago I was playing Skyrim or something on my computer and I remember thinking to myself 'Oh, I need to get around for bed' and then the next thing I knew I was sitting in my bed wrapped in blankets. My back hurt, I looked like shit, I was pretty sure I'd been sitting there for a while, I was unbelievably tired, and it was like 8 hours later and I was extremely close to being late for work.    Last night was a little different in that I didn't just completely lose the time, I remember doing stuff, but 4 hours is a nice chunk of time and I don't remember doing anything that could have taken that long. Maybe you're right, Fez and I should go see my doctor. But that means getting in the car...  :rolleyes:   I'm not entirely sure why I made the post this morning, I guess I was a bit unsettled. Back to your normal days, folks. Sorry for the interruption.    Edit: Since this is now some kind of Magic thread, I'll throw in my two cents. I think this is the last time I'll be playing in a Standard FNM for a few years unless we get some decent fucking counter spells. I'm extremely disappointed in not only the way the game panders to Mono Red and the tri-color stupid dumb shit, but also in what's been revealed in Battle for Zendikar. I'm all about Grixis, and by extension U/B control. But now I have no blue cards and no black removal. Why even play? I'll stick to Modern and Legacy. Where the most bullshit things I have to deal with from people who don't know how to play is Amulet Bloom and Show and Tell. 
  5. I just lost time...

    It's four hours later than I thought. And I don't mean I lost track of time, I could have sworn five minutes ago that it was midnight or maybe 1 am. But it's 4 in the morning... I know I've done a few things tonight, but nothing that would take 4 hours. I played Magic online for about an hour with my friend, I took a shower, and I watched a movie. That was at like 9 or 10.    Fucking weird and kinda disturbing. How are you guys doing? Anyone have a similar creepy story they'd like to share?   ETA: Oh, and the stove's been on since I last looked at my clock (and then pre-heated the stove) at about 9:30.
  6. Wore my Reggie Wayne jersey today and have had a number of annoying conversations about Reggie's signing with the Patriots. No less than three people have told me he's a traitor. One guy stood up and thanked me (as in he thanked me, personally) for giving the Patriots such a great weapon. And I had one really great conversation with a guy who knew his shit, we talked for a while about how cool we hope the Colts offense could be this year among other things.   I stopped trying to tell the idiots that the Colts chose not to offer Reggie a contract and he deserves to go to whatever team he feels will give him a chance at another championship. Just like I didn't bother telling the Patriots fan that Reggie's a 36 year old who probably doesn't have much left to offer a team.   God, people are just fucking stupid and uninformed.
  7. NFL Offseason 2015 Pt 2: Deflated Debate

    I was tempted to swing by the Colts practice field in Terre Haute, but they cut Trent Richardson. If I can't see a fat ball of fucks tripping over his own linemen every play what's the point of going to practice? 
  8. Superman and Batman: The End of Humor

    Ah! Thanks, much. I wasn't hearing the comma there, so it sounded jumbled. Probably tinnitus or a tumor on my eardrum. That was a joke.
  9. Superman and Batman: The End of Humor

    Yo, quick question from the slightly fucked-up hearing here. What are the first and last things Lex says? When he first begins speaking he's like brushing superman's hair and he says something about'... demons don't come from hell beneath us' And at the end he says 'the red cape...circling?' That doesn't seem right.
  10. What's bugging you?

    People are bugging me. I just want to be left alone, is that too much to ask for? I have 2 events that I live for each week, Magic on Fridays and Roleplaying on Saturdays. In between those days, I would like to do the exact same thing every day. I want to wake up at noon, pay my bills, finish my chores, eat the same food, and smoke some weed so that I can sleep. That's all I want to do. No one needs to be bothered, or spoken to, or inconvenienced, or stressed out. But every day someone is knocking on my door, or blowing up my phone with some global catastrophe. Why? Life sucks, why can't everyone else just roll with it?
  11. Magic: The Gathering

    Never mind, googled it.
  12. Magic: The Gathering

    I'm considering putting together a Blue/Black EDH deck so that I can do some wack shit, but I'm kind of hesitant about it. I don't like the 1 card limitation. Are there any good Blue/Black commanders available?
  13. Magic: The Gathering

    So I know you've all probably been absolutely devastated by my lack of board presence (that's a Magic pun) lately, but I've fallen in love with playing Magic and it's kept me from sitting in front of my computer for eight hours a day refreshing the Miscellaneous page of this site. It's even led to me meeting people and being sociable, so that's cool. It seems to me that it's a downright crime that there's no Magic discussion on these threads, so I'll start it off. I've cycled through a number of standard decks, my first being a Mono Green Devotion deck that I had moderate success with. From there I went to White-Green Manifest, which I fucked around with until it went from a Mid-Range Devotion deck to an Aggro form built around the cards Collected Company and Deathmist Raptor. I was finishing in the top-3 in my local game store for like 10 weeks, so I switched it up and now I'm running a Red-Green Aggro with emphasis on burn. I also built a UB Control and a Mono Blue Control but those weren't played competitively and were mostly for multiplayer. Now that I'm kind of bored with Standard, I moved on to Modern. At first I was running a UB Mill deck, but it wasn't competitive at all so I tried to turn it into a UB Control/Mill. That wasn't flowing right either, so I've transitioned it to a Mono Black control deck centered around Liliana of the Veil and discard mechanics. I'm gonna roll with that for a bit, but I'm already considering splashing blue back in so that I can get bounce mechanics to get rid of Leylines or other early-play enchantments that Black struggles to remove. Plus blue gets Snapcaster Mage and while he looks fabulous in my binder, every deck is better with Snapcaster Mage. Who else plays and what do you run?
  14. Interstellar 2 - My God, it's full of SPOILERS

    Do they mention how long the days are on Miller's planet? And do they mention how many stars are near Gargantua? If the planet is Tidally Locked, and completely covered with water, then there would be a wave at each high tide. So if the planet completes a rotation every 2 hours, the timeline between swells would be accurate. To address why it doesn't become day or night, I have conjecture that I cannot back up because we're not all sciency ladies. (KAT!!!) But do they say how many stars are in proximity to Gargantua? I ask because there seem to be two disks of light forming around the event horizon, couldn't that indicate two stars? One 'parallel' to the Miller-Gargantua plane, and one 'perpendicular' to the Miller-Gargantua plane? I don't know if that's even possible, but wouldn't that provide constant light on Miller? ^^ If that doesn't make any sense, sorry. I'm no astrophysicist and it's hard to describe a 3 dimensional concept non-visually when the reference points aren't even certain. ^^^ But, Neil deGrasse Tyson seemed to think that they merged the concepts of a Supermassive Black Hole (as Gargantua is described), which would let Cooper and TARS survive the trip into the Tesseract, and a Stellar Black Hole, which would have possibly caused the Tidal Locking on Miller, but would have ripped Cooper and TARS apart when they fell into it. deGrasse Tyson dismissed this problem by pointing out that this is where the Science FICTION comes to play, and according to the interview with him I read, he loved the movie and the fact that he was bothered to nitpick it was a compliment. He frequently referenced Mark Twain's penchant for getting the facts and then distorting them for his purpose. Now that sounds like something Nolan would do, Shryke. Get his science down and manipulate it to meet his needs. A far cry from the flippant 'fuck science' attitude I felt you were implying up thread.
  15. Interstellar 2 - My God, it's full of SPOILERS

    That's not really Nolan's style. I'm not saying that that may not have happened, but that would seem to be out of character to me.
