The <off topic> thread


Recommended Posts

The craziest thing happened a few hours ago! I was going to my car to go to work, as usual, and right by the front wheel was a snake! Trying to keep my coolness credibility, I just went back into the apartment like I forgot something. So I go back out 5 minutes later and I see the snake again! So not knowing if it was anything dangerous or not, I went to the passenger's side of the car and got in it from there. Started my car and revved it (that adds to my coolness credibility). The snake pulled away from the tire. So I started backing up the car and I hear a little *squish*. So when I was driving away, I saw that back of the snake was flat and partly cut off. Now I feel sorry for the snake.

So I spent ten minutes looking it up and found that it was an Eastern Racer, more specifically, a [solid black] coluber constrictor.

(snake story)

Non-venomous, eh? Killer. ;-)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Hey, that doesn't mean that it can't bite! The thing eats dead birds! It was also threatening me by opening its mouth and shaking its imaginary rattle tail.

I didn't say I wouldn't have done the same...

Right now I'm playing the Legend of Zelda: the Ocarina of Time on an emulator. I had a lot of doubts about getting it going- if the emulator works, if the emulator is compatible with Zelda, if the Zelda ROM was even legal- but it all went well, which means that the ROM is legal. And playing with a keyboard is actually quite easy (especially because I've beaten the game before). Right now I'm playing it in 640x480 32-bit mode and I'm getting about 60fps with it. And it's not taking too much RAM or CPU, either.

Link is one of the few video game characters that I enjoy.

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.

@pyrochild: if you're thinking of a new avatar/sig combo...does that mean we get a (long-overdue) tutorial on how you did your current sig? I know lots of people tried to replicate it, but I was never able to do it match entirely... :?

Yes.

Yib yib yu! Now you've got me excited, not because I have nothing better to do other than wait for people to update their signatures, but because this long wait you've put us through has been adding to the tension and anticipation.
