Megaera was a Cloud Serpent twisted by Lei Shen, iirc. The neck is the body.

From a recent (declined) application for a raid spot in my guild:

What is your favourite boss fight and why?

I'm hoping that wasn't the reason for the decline, and that its just a cute comment form the application :)

Well, aside from the lack of seriousness of their response to our question - overall the person was declined for a complete lack of gems and enchants on totally blue gear.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not a gear whore. I really couldn't care less about ilevel. But if you can't even be bothered to take your own gear seriously (even if it is shit quality) then why should I take your application seriously?

LOL! My raid group's running joke this past weekend (since about half my raid group is from MT) was that we're part of 'the elite "real raiders"' from that "What's up with T15" thread. Oh man - many lols were had.

WTH? oO I'm a bit ahead of Nika, one of the first posters I was "wow, this one is a badass" at. I'm gonna have and give the new guild a hug! I was always soooooo late :(
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

Someone at Blizzard is getting fired.

Gameloft develops a lot of mobile games. Their basic method is to rip off other franchises and call it a day. They have ripped off LoL, Starcraft, Call of Duty, Diablo, Saints Row, Grand Theft Auto and WoW.

Well last Thursday they released a CCG for their WoW ripoff a day before the Hearthstone announcement.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

That's the one.

I wish Gameloft wasn't so scummy with their game inspirations. They do fantastic work for the mobile platforms, you just end up feeling dirty when you play them.

Lulu Lemon's method to see if your yoga pants are too shear and eligible for the refund is for you to put them on and bend over and if they can see your lady junk you get the refund.

This week's Episode of Justified was full of great lines. At one point, Main Character Marshall walks into bar, and armed thug meets him, brandishing a gun.

After they set the tone, that he's "protecting the bar" Mr. Givens (the Marshall) asks him to call his boss.
To which thug replies: "Why don't you kiss my dimpled ass!?"
To which he gets slugged in the gut, and the best line: "I don't see how that invitation has anything to do with my request"

I giggled. A lot.

EDIT:
Another amusement from the show.

The great Walton Goggins as Boyd Crowder is talking to a detroit mafia guy, in his "Boyd way" (You'd have to hear it, to understand), and the Mafia guy interrupts him and says "I'm going to need Google Translate on my phone if I'm going to keep talking to you."

I'm sure just myself and Lieris will see the humor, but it's ok. We get it :)

People and Free Shipping.

I sell some oddball stuff on ebay for work, that is light, and cheap. We sell flimsy flags, and for a while they were $6.98 + Shipping.

You could choose First Class (normally ~$2.00)
Priority ($5.00)
UPS (Stupidly expensive)

The option was there, for you to buy the flag, and have it shipped for $8.98.

The problem? We weren't selling them. So I tried something. I upped the price 3 bucks, making the flag $9.98, and removed the shipping options. Now, it's $9.98 with Free Shipping.

I sell more now than I ever did before, AND I'm making an extra buck a piece (sometimes more, depending on where they live).

I don't get people. But then, I also take things we sell in our store for next to nothing, and list it online for more.

Headlights? $1 in the store. We have 100's. Ebay? $4.98. I sell more on Ebay than we do int he store.
Bicycle seats? $2.50 in the store? Again, 100's. Ebay? $9.98. Again, I sell more.
Antique Master Locks, in boxes. These were so old, that they were more valuable as antiques than functioning items. In store? $2.98. On eBay? $12.99.

Blows my mind. But I love it. If people could see the store I work in, they would be blown away at the craziness that is this place.
