I r confused.


This is exactly what happened to no fewer than five DKs during FL for us. One got a full set of heroic tokens one night, and never logged in again.

Well thing is, with "disappearing from the server" I actually mean they transferred away during the night... not the first time it happened either, so odd. Could at least have said bye.

Well maybe 50% of all accepted characters on our guild disapear in less then a week, they get in, raid one or two times then "puff" - "offline for "insert number" months", they don't leave the guild or transfer, they simple never log in again.

It seems the only ones upset about this commercial is the white people and not jamaicans... My jamaican friend was cracking up when she saw the commercial.

Having just come back from Thailand, and seeing the way they drive there.. if the "Western powers insurance rules" were applied, either they all should have died long ago, or none would be allowed to drive. Ironically, with all the "rude" driving by western standards, you don't see any road rage, because they all drive that way.

Thailand is pushing to get people to wear helmets.. but that doesn't help the driving.. :D

Quite the contrary...
The level of crashs there should raise with a need to slightly move your head to check if there is a car/bike/motorcicle before turning with an helmet.

P.S. Now that i think, i don't remember any "thailandise" ever cheking before turning, stop, U-turn or performe bodily functions...

Amusement of the week:
Learning that many 'performance' cars have a feature which amplifies certain sound frequencies from the exhaust/engine within the cabin to make the driver/passengers 'hear the power' while still being nice and quiet outside (mainly for European drive-by sound requirements apparently.)

That's right: we make your car louder, in a very specific range and because drivers apparently like it, but only on the inside.

The funnier bit, I thought, was that apparently there are companies out there that tried (and may still use) electronically synthesized sounds played through your audio system to do this.


I have to admit: I laughed, but it is kinda neat.

Given some of the crazy stuff I've heard about being on the after-market, I wouldn't be surprised.

One of the supplier reps I chatted with described some of the after-market shows like the weapons show scenes in 'Lord of War' (neat movie if you haven't seen it) :P

got an email at the office telling us not to put food trash in our trashcans (that get emptied every night) because it's attracting mice.

It couldn't at all be people leaving large quantities of food on, under and in their desks. Nah.

Must be because they can be used to obtain 18+ rated material, and requires the spending of money now for a purchase later (thus requiring adult okay?)

Someone stole Sheriff Arpaio's credit card!

Just sad they didn't buy dildoes and lube with it.

I shouldn't be surprised... I really shouldn't.

Proposed law to force AZ students to individually take a loyalty oath in order to receive their HS diploma.

http://www.azleg.gov//FormatDocument.as ... ion_ID=110

Be it enacted by the Legislature of the State of Arizona:
Section 1. Title 15, chapter 7, article 1, Arizona Revised Statutes, is amended by adding section 15-701.03, to read:
15-701.03. Graduation requirement; constitutional oath
Beginning in the 2103-2014 school year, in addition to fulfilling the course of study and assessment requirements prescrived in this chapter, before a pupil is allowed to graduate from apublic high school in this state the principal or head teacher of the school shall verify in writing that the pupil has recited the following oath:
I, _________, DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR THAT I WILL SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC, THAT I WILL BEAR TRUE FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE TO THE SAME; THAT I TAKE THIS OBLIGATION FREELY, WITHOUT ANY MENTAL RESERVATION OR PURPOSE OF EVASION; AND THAT I WILL WELL AND FAITHFULLY DISCHARGE THESE DUTIES; SO HELP ME GOD.


The bolded parts seem to contradict each other...

And then after graduation, they find out they're government agents?

So glad I'm long graduated.

If I popped Time Warp at the start of the fight with the dragon in Terrace of the Endless Springs, I would have been able to use it twice before it was dead in the raid finder... Managed to take 13 minutes to kill it. With the amusement part out of it is that only about the 6 people from my guild where alive when he DID die. Anyone noticed that he doesnt have an enrage timer? :p

Well yeah, being required to taken an oath that inclueds taking it freely must, by any legal standard, invalidate the oath. We don't have to worry about it just yet though, as it doesn't take effect untill the schoolyear 2103-2014, so we have 90 years to get it overturned (at least) (I assume you copy-pasted it from somplace that copypasted it from teh actual bill)
