Re: "Brick Archway" Discussion

Damn, I honestly think this raises the very serious question of what computer games could successfully be played in the real world... Also, yes, I laughed a lot. Umm, no. This is a very funny comic, but there's something that I would have hoped Randall would have thought about, and he didn't think ...

"We've taken care of everything The words you read, the songs you sing, The pictures that give pleasure to your thigh." (NB -- In their original form these lines begin a polemic against statism and censorship.) "Open your thighs, look up to the skies and see --" "When your h...

re: ascii art

Unfortunately I tried a little bit of hacking and I can't get it to be ascii-art friendly. My best suggestion is to screenshot it and dump it somewhere, or use only en-width characters, _*______*__*___*__*****_____*****__*___*__*___**** _*______*__*__*___*___________*____*___*__*__*____ _*______*__*...

Granted; I give you the power to speak kitten and you tell some kittens a joke. They tell it to their freinds, who tell it to their friends, et cetera , and, being kittens and not too terribly bright, for the kittens the joke loses nothing in the re-telling of it. For the rest of your life you have ...

re: image linking, double-posting

Great job, guys! Re. image linking, I think it is a forum policy not to hotlink images, which is why I said upload it to a site you own or to an image sharing site -- services like tinyurl are good for masking what the image could be of (which is nice and completely in the spirit of the game), but d...

A brief perousal of the topic list doesn't reveal an "exquisite corpse" variation here, so I am starting one. This is a game of "Eat Poop, You Cat." My "rules" for this thread are at first going to seem a little asinine even to those who know the rules of the game, howe...

You don't actually know which two chambers are full, only that the two full ones are consecutive. Label the chambers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. (1,2), (2,3), (3,4), (4,5), (5,6), (6,1) are all of the possible sequences of two shots without respinning. Because two consecutive chambers are full, there is one ...

Yesssss!! Glad to see I've sparked some thought about what is and isn't sci-fi. "Some 'Splainin' to Do" is getting it right in that it isn't the kinds of plot devices in a story that uniquely identify its genre. If the heroes ride dragons on their adventures, it ain't necessarily Fantasy, ...

Hello, ladies and would-be gentlemen. This is a new kind of spambot called a trihedron. It is nothing like any spambot that has ever existed before. Before posting to a forum, it reads the rules and makes a vain promise to itself to follow them, knowing that it is just as capable as the next troll o...
