See, I wish this is all April Fools Day was. Fun gags rather than people lying for no reason (which is only funny to the person who is lying solely because they lied).

Nah, I don't really have the skills to write at length. I could probably do it if I really put the time and effort into it, sure, but I don't have the desire for all that. And my intention was never for ficton, just general discussion and the like. » 3/31/15 7:40am Today 7:40am

On some logical level I understand that an article titled “How to Take a Day Off” makes sense for some people and can be genuinely helpful, but on a personal level it sounds crazy. It’d be like having an article called “How to Breathe” or “Don’t Forget to Eat Food.” » 3/31/15 5:31am Today 5:31am

In my opinion (heresy to some) HL2 is leagues better than HL1, so I don't recommend even trying it at this point. But yeah, it starts slow for story and gameplay reasons, but I see why you might be bored. I recommend staying at it because it does get pretty good. It's all very linear, though, and in certain ways you… » 3/31/15 12:00am Today 12:00am

Carol has managed to become not only the scariest character on this show, but among the scariest in any. The fact that she so easily balances the two personas just adds to it. » 3/30/15 8:50am Yesterday 8:50am

I was thinking about it — you know what Walking Dead spinoff I'd like to see? The early days of the outbreak, but somewhere like Wyoming or Montana where there really aren't many people (or Alaska, and then we gain the cold benefit). Like, civilization has collapsed, but you're a lot safer than most people. And then… » 3/30/15 8:23am Yesterday 8:23am

I don't have any problem with rich people begging for money. So long as they aren't being misleading (and neither Zach Braff nor the Pebble people were), everyone who gives them money is doing so because they want to. And in the Pebble's case, most people who gave them money are doing so 100% because they want the… » 3/29/15 12:38pm Sunday 12:38pm

I laugh whenever I hear the term "dark net" on TV, like it's some shady, scary back-alley type of Internet. This is really the first time I've heard it in real life. » 3/29/15 12:15am Sunday 12:15am

"Selfish" doesn't necessarily mean "bad." Like, sure, it's selfish for her to not want to give dudes blowjobs, but it's selfish for me to not want to give hobos money. It's my decision and I'm both entitled to it and fully justified in going whichever way with it I want. A decision made to benefit yourself is selfish,… » 3/29/15 12:07am Sunday 12:07am

While I prefer the original continuity, a new series set in the rebooted continuity would also serve to legitimize it in fans' eyes and balance out the events of the films. So yeah, I'd have to agree. » 3/28/15 8:43pm Saturday 8:43pm

I didn't do a full transcript, but here are some bullet points regarding what she said. It's all pretty basic stuff if you watched the show, though. » 3/28/15 1:22am Saturday 1:22am

I don't know... I've always wanted to travel in a vague sense, but because I've never done it (alone or really with others) I don't really know what I'd do if I did it by myself. That and I really hate making decisions (and strangers, honestly), if I'm by myself I feel like I'd just get lazy and not do/see anything… » 3/27/15 10:10pm Friday 10:10pm

One summer in college I worked internal IT for the nuclear division of a multi-state energy company. I don't have any good specific stories, just your standard IT computer stuff, but I remembered that all the people I talked to worked at actual nuclear power plants. We all take Homer Simpson as a joke, but maybe he's… » 3/27/15 8:04pm Friday 8:04pm
