    TTTNE 476 - the ghost of series past

    @RhaenysBee This is what I am talking about. And it is dark so early now.

    I mean, it is your game, you can keep that info if you want. It is just that if you look at the previous games, you will see that the authors are usually posted. That way it is easier to praise and compliment the authors of particularly nice interpretations! Thank you for hosting! You were very patient with all our delays and everything.

    Hey! Copyright! We need names of authors of the sentences and pictures! Also, I think Chain 1 Picture 2 is a wrong picture, it is the one from Chain 2.

    I didn't want to pity you, I actually wanted to say something comforting, but whatever. I am sorry I expressed myself wrongly. If you know of the meet up being organised and it is about your study/your work, then you are being invited. You should be there, you are obviously a successful student if you finished studying and have some job experience already, at least you can talk about this, right? Maybe you would function better not in group meetings, but one-on-one? So you are not overwhelmed by all the people around you? I don't know, just guessing. Sorry, expressed myself wrongly again. I was struggling with my own thoughts about teaching as a career. I am in a field where most of my study colleagues end up teaching. For me personally, I just don't want to do it - mostly because being personally responsible for a bunch of kids every day and also being responsible for their learning seems like a nightmare to me (I am fine with teaching adults though). So I kind of admire everybody who actually wants to do it. But yes, also on top of your social anxiety - it is all the more curious that you choose to do such a job that requires to be in contact with a large group of people at all times. I am sure it is very rewarding, but also exhausting. *bows out*

    I think it should be 24 hours tops. These starting and finishing sentences should be more like teasers before the actual reveal. I think not everybody will even want to guess which ones go together, and everybody is anxious to see the pictures!

    Awwwwww, Toth. I don't think we have talked before, but know that every time I read one of your posts, I just want to spend time with you one-on-one and do something fun and give you a big hug. I don't think it would help much, but just keep in mind that there are surely people who want to spend time with you - they are even asking you to all the time; if they didn't ask you to, they would not invite you - so please don't lose all hope about not being lonely at some point. I know that teaching work is hard and demands a lot of time, but also make sure you take enough time for yourself! Your health is a priority for you, and no work is worth all your time. Good luck. I am impressed that you like this job!

    I see you are having a similar weekend to mine. I took my heating pad to my bed last night. It started leaking water. So my bed was completely wet. That was a great night, I tell you.

    And the rest just don't make any sense. I also have no idea what an executive highlighter is.

    Important topic totally in need of its own thread

    I am only able to enjoy it with my family. Every time I try to play with anybody else, they come up with some ridiculous rules that I just cannot agree with and they ruin it for me.
  12. Namely, Uno rules. 1. You can finish the game with any card, even a black one, even a +4, or the skip card, or the turn card. 2. You can add +2 to a +2. And you can also add a +4 to a +2. Whoever hasn't drawn at least +12 at once hasn't suffered, and whoever hasn't punished their neighbour with at least +14, doesn't know the real joys of life. 3. If you have two identical cards, you can play them both at once, with the exception of +2, +4, and the colour change card. 4. Yes to skipping others if you have the same card as the one that was just played - you can skip the players in between and play your own card, if it is of the same colour and same number/symbol. Exception: no skipping +2, +4, and the colour change card, and no skipping at the very beginning of the game. Playing without skipping is only appropriate for children or beginners who are only just learning to play. And you cannot possibly convince me otherwise. The game is also much more interesting if you add a +5 for everybody to draw 5 (except the person who played it), which you can also add on top of a +2 or +4. It is worth 100 penalty points if you still have it at the end of the game. But I can understand that addition isn't everybody's cup of tea.
  13. I have heard of Fichte and Schelling. No idea what they did and why their philosophy is important, though. Yes. That is the question.

    My mother insists on having the Diva channel running ALL the time, which runs the absolute cheesiest Christmas-themed movies since October. Good think I am not there this season. It started annoying me the first day when I came for a three-day visit.
