Yeah, it can get pretty bad. I don't drive a lot since I live slap bang in the middle of Oslo, but when I go home to visit my parents' there's always some driving involved since they live in a small off-the-edge-of-the-map town (population of 2000). The last 30 minutes to get there is basically all mountains and forests (to be fair, that's 90% of Norway, but oh well).

Used to see a lot more wildlife than in the past few years though. Kinda makes me sad. "Kinda", because while it's nice to see moose and deer and reindeer and lynxes and fox and all those mostly harmless creatures, it's slightly different when there's bear or wolf sightings. Great animals, those too, just don't want them near any kind of comfort zone. :roll:

I'm sorry -- I didn't feel like stealing aggro in my small Kia Soul; in comparison, the rancher that did end up hitting the deer was driving a huge diesel truck...


Yeah, I believe you. ^^ You should totally reinforce the frame of your car with some dwarven steel and mount a Bulwark of Azzinoth up front! It'll eat trucks for breakfast.

This is what a small wild boar (only 80-100 kg) can do to the front of a car:

They get a lot, lot bigger around here. We're talking 300-400 kg and the forests here are full of the damn things. Hardly a week goes by without the local news reporting a wild board collision and a totally totalled car.

Frustration: 2.1 million hp wipe at the first boss in HoF :/ Oh, and on one of the attempts he only summoned one bubble to stand under.

Sorry Sag, looks like you'll have to wait for the webmaster to fix the bug you are having.

PS. You are on for the raid tomorrow night, regardless of whether the website is available or not :)


That's the wonder of pushing for high tech :-p

In all seriousness though, glad to hear you got away ok. I take it the other guy wasn't badly hurt either?
Had a few close calls with some fairly massive moose over the years here in Norway. Scary business.


Thanks to this post, I now have chocolate milk on my screen... And out of my nose >.<

I regard moose as one of the few believable proofs of intelligent design.

How else do you explain an animal that's designed to do as much damage as possible to the driver of a car in a crash?

Antelope and deer are also pretty smart. They jump out of nowhere, and people will roll their vehicles to avoid hitting the animal.

A co-worker just found a jagged piece of glass (the size of a grape) in her soup. She went to return it, not only did they not believe her at first, but they also did not apologize and didn't want to refund her the entire amount of the soup because she put extra cheese on it. Unbelievable. And yet, if she's swallowed that, they would've suffered a lawsuit. I think six bucks pales in comparison, frankly. Bunch of idiots.

methinks you should have talked to someone higher up the totem pole. At a low level (i.e. server), that can seem like a big issue (heck, probably like an hour's take home pay in some places) - get high enough and they'll realize that a legitimately pissed off customer with a story can be much more damaging and it's not worth the hassle of interrupting your manager's solitare game. :P

The event is still lawsuit material, or at least merits a call to the local health inspectors.. :wink:

I don't know how it works there, but I would've called the Health Department and had a Health Inspector dispatched. That would've shut them down until they figured out where this huge breakdown of food safety occured and how to rectify it. That would cost them waaaaay more than a bowl of soup.

Edit: and of course I'm late because forum doesn't like me. :P

What is there to look after? I mean stay in front of the boss and dps the legs. Boss getting some stacks of fure isnt the end of the world anyway.

I went as far as taking 40 stacks, with some raid cds, that gave dps in the beginning enough time to tunnel the boss hard.

Whiny know-it-all shamans who don't mind taking off spec gear one bit but when it comes time for someone else who doesn't utilize their off spec as often bitches about them getting loot because he thinks "the guild" needs crystals to enchant weapons (his two windsong enchanted off spec claws...)

Not only is gold easy to come by in this game but the guild has plenty of gold.

And then throws a temper tantrum when asked to make a macro for Earth Shock so that he stops putting weakened blows on mutated constructs.

No wonder our progression has slowed down when we are starting to allow this kind of behavior. If I were an officer and not the new guy I would have let him know where he could go.

Grow up.

not enough people signing up for raid, and seemingly people just not logging in on raid nights. We have a group of ~4 who can be counted on to be around, but our RL occasionally just doesn't show up without a warning and I don't know what happened to the other 5-6 who'd wanted to raid.

I'm thinking we may finally get around to a guild raid sometime next tier. Maybe. I can't help but wonder if the daily grind required to buy VP gear is part of it, or if people just gave up.

My grammar or the event ? (egads that was an ugly sentence :P)

Honestly, I wouldn't mind if I got a heads up (being an assistant RL). It's the logging on sometimes and wondering if he's going to be around. Probably doesn't help people on the wings seeing invites and nothing but maybe a 5-man or scenario happening.

The event. The fact that someone can call themselves a raid leader and yet leave their raiders wondering if they will show up is horrible. That's not a leader - that's an utter flake.

How in the HELL does it make sense to charge $800 for a flight from Toronto to Dublin, with a connection in London (Heathrow), yet a flight from Toronto to Heathrow is $200-$300 more?!?!

After several years of taking flights all around europe and somewhere in africa, I have lost all belief that flight companies prices make any sense. I occasionally payed more a flight from Bari to Milan than from Bari to London.
