Re: BLURT thread

I'm still drinking Scotch.. and I'm sorry that decidedly unpleasant things happened to you. I generally feel pretty OK about things by now. Don't worry about me. Also, I like to imagine you've been drinking scotch continuously since your last post. Because that degree of combined alcoholism and ins...

Re: Video Game Stuff

By the way, The Steam sale is on at the moment and GUNPOINT is on sale for something like $3 or $4. I highly recommend it. I second this. Gunpoint is a great little game that allows for all sorts of amusing creative problem solving, and the story of its making is pretty feel-good to boot (gaming pr...

Have you considered the possibility that you have exceptionally slow sperm? You take that back. My sperm are like microscopic supermen. Not be completely cynical-pants, but it will be interesting to see how long their relationship lasts. Who knows, but I genuinely hope it does last. Single parentho...

Re: Video Game Stuff

Have we talked about Campo Santo here? No, but I've been thinking about it pretty hard. I am geeking out about Star Citizen and have bought a Freelancer Pack. I can never remember whether I've bought into that at all. I think I might have held off pending a PC upgrade which might never happen. I wa...

Re: Movie log thread

Yeah that first scene was amazing to behold. However, I was not emotionally invested in Sandra Bullock at all. I heard someone say the film has a terrible script, and despite liking it I think they might actually be right. I still really enjoyed it, but what I enjoyed about it wasn't really much to...

Re: Movie log thread

I really enjoyed Gravity. The initial debris storm was grimly thrilling and – to use an appalling word – impactful like few other things I've seen. I can't think of an entirely satisfactory word; it's not really emotionally moving, but it hit me in a similar way and to a similar degree as a really a...

Re: Cultural Differences

There's a fairly even mix of two spouts, one spout with two knobs, and one spout with a complex knob* over here. I think most modern fittings have a single spout, but that wasn't the norm until fairly recently, so there's still a lot of the old style. It's generally fine – the hot water takes a whil...

Re: Random Thoughts

I would argue about that, but I can't remember all the stuff about truth in fiction from uni. It was the subject of my dissertation! I remember writing a bit about Chief Wiggum. I don't need to hear your argument; I've decided on my opinion and that opinion is therefore truth. You can have consensu...

It had a 3 mexapixel camera and could only send 160 characters of text at a time. Where did the extra 20 characters come from? The screeny keyboard never becomes not-terrible. Never ever. My next phone will have an actual-buttons keyboard, if good phone stuff is not extinct by then. I do pretty wel...

Re: Random Thoughts

Nick, you're making the mistake of looking for the canonical truth of a fictional world. It's a common thing, but saying "what really happened in this work of fiction" doesn't entirely make sense. You could modify the question by asking what the author intended, or what would be the most i...

Re: BLURT thread

Well any sort of significant progress would obviously be good, but specifically (and unsurprisingly) the main thing this puts in mind is the complete lack of any romantic involvement for the past year. That might sound creepier than I meant it. I think a lot of what I found difficult is that while I...

Re: BLURT thread

This evening I found out that my ex, with whom I split up (as in by whom I was dumped) a little over a year ago, just had a baby. I guess we weren't very serious, and it was never going to last, but it still feels pretty strange. I'm trying to feel good things about it before a stupid spiral of nega...

Ittakesa few minutes to boil, so I go and perform some brief task. If it takes several minutes to boil, might you not be boiling more water than required? Unless you're doing it for the whole office, in which case shouldn't somebody be swooping in there once it's ready? STILL VERY IMPORTANT. Or rip...

Re: A whine and complain thread

A thing I find really weird is when a roll of toilet paper runs out at work, there's someone who will prop the new roll on the (unused) towel rail rather than using the actual spindle thing (what do you call the thing you put toilet roll on?). It would take at most five seconds to go the final step ...
