    Hi me. I think it might have been that first image.
    Ok me, I humbly apologize for my previous statement
    regarding the matter. :)

    Sounds better than being paid to be bored in -2 degree winter to walk around for 12 hours. 1 night on Wed. and the Weekend. 6am to 6pm.
    The pay was a bit less than 10 per hour. :p

    It worked the second time, first time was numberificated and errored out, but the second time it was just lurking there in all its glory behind the spoiler veil....

    The atmosphere is compressing.
    It's tight.
    I can feel it coming on like a service dog predicting her master's imminent seizure .
    The gestalt mind is misfiring.
    Can't you hear the razzle-snap of the ganglia?

    It comes...

    we really don't need to know about your private bedroom activities ... especially not in that degree of detail

    Well, lacking context, I can see how that would be. I was describing something quite different. ;)

    There's something in the back left corner of your throat that runs top to bottom, and I don't know what it is, but I know it's there because it feels swollen and painful every time I swallow.

    Oh dear lord. Next there will a jar of peanut butter,

    Saliva gland? There's one either side, but it could be that the left one is blocked.

    Sounds like a tonsil inflammation to me.

    This sounds like your tonsil. I used to get tonsil infections as a kid regular as clockwork. This always turned into an ear infection, and that caused me to have to have those little tubes in my ears twice as a youth. Getting my hearing checked when I was young is a strong memory.

    I've never understood this chart. Not what's filling in the boxes, but the boxes themselves. Where does this come from?

    I think it's from Dungeons and Dragons, although I've never played the game myself.

    Ah. That explains my lack of understanding. I'm the right age for it, but I never D&D'd.

    I didn't either, but I did play Baldur's Gate.

    Well, I got to the first fight, at which point I gave up. I liked the stealing and the quests, not the fighting.

    Edit: Am now trying to decide if I'm neutral good or chaotic good.

    I always had issues with the alignment system (my guy friends are nerds with Thursday DnD nights).

    Like is it how characters view themselves, is it how other characters/players view them, or is it the absolute objective truth deep down, despite the social & individual views of their identity?

    If the first, it can be wrong. If it's the second, it also could be wrong or even partially accurate.

    If the last, why would you want others to know? And how do you manage consistency? Does the DM (Dungeon Master {of ceremonies}) hold players accountable & intervene if someone does something contrary to their alignment?

    The boys never let Selina & I play with them, 'cause they're all serious & real players. We just want to screw around and see what nonsense we could potentially get into. . .

    Some sort of mix between the shows Community and Gravity Falls renditions of DnD.
