"... until I took a spear to the side." [May. 29th, 2015|09:01 am]

so someone mentioned the bit in apocrypha where Jesus tamed/fought dragons, and this happened.

"They say that he is Godborn - Jehovahkiin."

Progress, such as it is [May. 17th, 2015|01:46 am]

I saw someone earlier observing that, from recent news, it seems the "fighting season" (in Syria) has "officially" begun. And I'm simultaneously bummed that this is a Thing, and has been for most of human history, and cautiously optimistic that we're at the point where I and others can look at it and say "and it is a Thing that is Bad", rather than something as inevitable and unremarkable as the other seasons. Something that Happens, yes, but which Should Not, and perhaps someday Might Not.

(a friend said this morning)

I'm just catching up on back posts of Penny Arcade, and Tycho mentions, in his offhand way, "I also like gems; I gots the dragon sickness.  We can cover that later."
And I'm thinking "you know, these days there's therapy for that, you don't have to struggle with your darkest impulses before finding redemption in a noble death".
...and now I really want to fill in a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy worksheet as Thorin.

"Triggers: - Seeing gold -wondering if someone has gold -Wondering if someone is trying to hide gold from me "
"Feelings: -want to own the gold -angry at people who want to take gold away -scared that someone might steal the gold from me"
"Behaviours: -hiding myself away with my gold -accusing friends and family of only wanting my gold -going to war with people who ask me for gold "

Fun dream from my morning nap today - the final log of an engineer, the last survivor of an expedition from something very like the Federation, but even more multi-cultural and multi-species, that accidentally dug up an aggressive hive-mind entity (like the Borg or Vinge's Blight) that looks like pink mist (nanite cloud?), assimilates/overwrites others, and infects rapidly by touch. At the moment, he's literally half the "man" he used to be; he violently severed his lower half in an attempt to prevent infection, but it got into him anyway. Now he's just trying to hang on long enough to finish his account of what happened/warning to others, hoping that it'll be enough.

Scary Go Round, 05/08/2015
(For context, the guy in this strip is mostly an expy of Steve Jobs, with a little Richard Branson et al.)

As several of the commenters on Facebook have noted, someone with Apple's "look, we just know BETTER than you, okay?" attitude to... pretty much everything is not who you want to be in charge of "the next stage of mankind's evolution."

("Gills?" "Gills are great. We're very excited. You will be too." "I'm not really comfortable with--" "You'll get used to it so fast, you'll forget they're even there." "Is there any way to, I dunno, 'opt out' of--" "GILLS ARE THE FUTURE.")

Can we talk about bandits for a bit though? Like, dear Bethesda, get your bandits better AI, because I know this happens in Skyrim and ESO too...

Here I am, with +2000 speed from a potion and flying because of my Belt of Netch Flight (constant effect: 5 Levitate), zipping across the continent because I can't be buggered to fast travel to Caldera to use the Propolyon Index, and I land on the road and three random Dark Elves start going YOU N'WAH and I'm like

standing there

While they completely fail to overcome either my physical or magical defenses like

"Do you know who I fucking AM? What the hell makes you think oh yeah, I'll attack the GLOWING SPARKLY CAT who just FELL OUT OF THE SKY FROM 2000 FEET UP AND TOOK NO DAMAGE. Yeah that's a great plan."

I actually left without killing them because I was like nah, this isn't worth my time and y'all probably don't even have money.


IMO, past a certain level, you should never see bandits. Or, at least, they should jump out of the bushes and then immediately apologize and wish you luck on that whole world-saving thing.

This morning, I dreamed of an MMO with a questgiver in the starting area who gives you an item if you do a little dance for her (/dance emote).

"You'll be doing this a lot later on. We call it 'raiding'."
