  1. I've been playing FTL. It's fun but downright asshole-ish in difficulty when beginning to play it. It was so hard on easy in the beginning that it discouraged me to a major degree. Upon several runs I've learned the pattern of some events and could avoid having my crew eaten by spiders in some random event. Never send your crew to the planet when spiders are involved.

    • Oh WOW. I was curiously looking how much "worth" my comics are. "Rick & Morty #" is a top dollar comic (for me). It easily sells for 150 USD. Also "Darth Vader #" (from 2015) is also not bad with 50 USD and above. Although I know the prices I don't sell them. At least not for the foreseeable future. Besides those two I have barely any that are more worth than the cover price.

        • I've bought a not-dakimakura. It's a slightly slimmer and shorter pillow and the cover is blank grey. I really need something stabilizing my sleep position when lying on the side. I tend to sleep on my stomach and it hurts my sleep quality. I wanted a wider pillow but there are no covers... or at least blank ones. At 150cm x 50cm there are only sexy anime pillow covers. I have too much dignity than to embarrass myself with frivolous prints on pillow covers.

        • My 3rd character of the current D&D campaign will be a woke barbarian. The name is Boktar. Boktar is Boktar. Boktar does only define as Boktar and doesn't approve any gender put on Boktar. Boktar is also not good in conversations as Boktar has Yoda-speak despite average 10 intelligence. It doesn't discourage Boktar as Boktar solves most problems in woke rage with Boktar's trusty greataxe.

            • Tried to play Elite Dangerous after I got it for cheap from a recent Humble Bundle. Save it. I mean don't bother. The game is hot garbage. Controls garbage. Tutorial garbage. First mission garbage. It is so garbage I rage-quitted. In the first mission you have to fly to a station and dock there for further information. It made you wait for 7 minutes in real time. For real. I stopped half-way through and quit the game. I wanted to play it in VR and it is also pretty garbage in that regard. Text is barely readable with my normal HTC Vive. Also I HATE HATE HATE fake-ass headless bodies. In the pilot seat there is a "representation" of "my" body sitting. However it is super distracting for me. Especially when it's so close and adjusting my seat. I quickly clip through its high collar. And there is no option to remove the model.

              • So, in a state that doesn't allow fireworks due to wildfire risk, and during a time that doesn't allow gatherings due to pandemic risk, how dumb has one's ass gotta be to host a pyrotechnic gender reveal party that lights 7,000+ acres ablaze? Pretty stupid ass, right?

              • The coming week I'm going to present my collected data to my landlord in order to get rid of the awful neighbour. I let it sign by other neighbours for credibility. The last few days (including this one) were especially awful. I format the data in my favor (although the raw data is already damning). For example yesterday there were about 7 hours of almost constant noise and banging.

                • @scribus No work (short time work paid by the state), a lot of time, and being extremely annoyed by loud low-frequency noise over a very long time (it is more than a year with varying degrees of disturbing noise) makes it possible.

                  • @scribus I was ganged up by 2 fish monsters after teleporting out of a poison cloud that made me blind and losing 1/3 of hitpoints before. Because the fight was split up due to the poison cloud and the building itself I failed all my death saving throws in a row. There was no chance.

                  • @scribus I'm creating a new character. An owl lady monk that will kick so much ass that no one will get unscathed. Unarmored combat and only "fists". I chose the DND 5e monk monastic tradition of the Way of The Open Hand that gives me the option to knock enemies prone, push them 15ft, deny reactions, stun, run with 50ft speed, deflect missiles, and do 4 attacks in a round, reduce fall damage, run on water and walls, regain HP 3x the monk level (level 13), and is immune to disease and poison, and can dismiss a charm or frightened effect with an action. Pretty badass. Also she can talk and understand every language at level 13. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875612
