  1. Well, I tried watching a couple of episodes with my Whovian college roommate around 1992, but I couldn't tell you when they were filmed. I tried watching a handful of episodes of the new one over the past couple of years. I honestly couldn't tell you much about any of the episodes--they just didn't hold my attention.
  2. Not so much to me. I've tried watching several episodes and just can't get into the show.
  3. Oh, I agree about the tardigrades. That picture with the clown handing French fries to the morbidly obese man belongs in the creepy/scary thread, though!
  4. Well, two different threads I'd have put that: http://www.herogames.com/forums/topic/91813-a-thread-for-all-things-creepy-andor-scary http://www.herogames.com/forums/topic/16508-creepy-pics/
  5. While you're away? Seems like there's a lot of silliness here normally.
  6. How did you come up with your 'handle' (forum name)? It's just the first syllable of my last name. It's been used as a nickname for years. What was the first tabletop RPG you played? Champions, when I was in college. What was the first tabletop RPG you GMed? I ran a few sessions of Champions many years ago. What are you currently playing/GMing? Nothing, unfortunately.
  7. Summing up: 1) Legally 2) Legally 3) Legally 4) Missed by background check 5) Stolen from father--who SHOULD have been denied on the current background check. Shooter too young to buy. 6) Legally, apparently, although the article is nicely vague on that point. 7) Missed by background check. 8) Stolen from mother. 9) Legally 10) Legally 11) Legally 12) Legally 13) Legally 14) Legally
  8. I concur with Hyper-Man. Buy "The Ultimate Base". There's plenty of information in it to help you.
  9. Couldn't we just put him in a cage if he didn't stay buried?
  10. I hadn't either. Fortunately, it's defined at that link Cygnia posted: "For those who aren’t aware of the concept of a “Gronk novel”, it is an erotic novel about or involving Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski, who plays tight-end for the New England Patriots football team." I didn't bother to read any more of the link.
  11. How about the wand from this one? http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0975.html
  12. That's published by BlackWyrm, right? I know Mattingly is here frequently, but you might try their website: http://www.blackwyrm.com/ or send him a PM here: http://www.herogames.com/forums/user/66-mattingly/.
  13. Meals on Wheels is here!
  14. Thanks for the explanation, Old Man. I didn't realize Army pilots were NCOs . . . I just figured they were officers like the rest of the branches. (With all the Clancy books I've read, I'm surprised I didn't pick up on that.)
  15. Why should there be any loss of rank or pay cuts if the entire CAS mission is transferred to a different service? I'd expect that the pilots and maintenance crews would be allowed to convert to the Army equivalent of the same rank--but I have no military background myself to know how (or if) that would work.
  16. Isn't it more pun-ishment than anything else?
  17. From what I remember, punt guns were generally used for market hunting. I think they were usually 1-, 2-, or 4- gauge shotguns and were braced against the ground or a support structure in a boat and fired into flocks of waterfowl. Flock flies off, dead birds are picked up, and the market hunter either reset in the same location or moved on to another spot to repeat the process. Essentially, a small cannon loaded with birdshot. Nothing sporting about the practice--it was strictly business.
  18. Couldn't that be because "continuity" keeps getting ret-conned?
  19. Did she feel that you insulted the muppet?
  20. Pure speculation on my part, since I'm not from Ferguson and haven't even visited the area in the last decade--but possibly because the alternatives are just as bad.
