Contemplating orifices, rather.

Why do you get fully healed and suchlike when you level up in RPGs? It sometimes leads me to time my level ups to use them to my advantage in combat (not if I have to go too much out of my way), so I guess it's kind of fun, but it seems rather arbitrary. What game started that trend?

This bugs me too. I mean the idea of leveling up itself is a little arbitrary (I just beat this enemy, now I'm suddenly better at lockpicking!), but it's still an approximation of real life. I can't remember ever becoming perfectly healthy in real life.

Found a TvTropes page. Assumes Final Fantasy Adventure (1991 in Japan) to be the earliest listed. May date back farther.

Lends an immediate sense of power. Imagine being near death. Begins fighting cautiously. Levels up. Removes the fear of defeat. Permits reckless behavior (temporarily).

I think it's to increase the impact. Like World of Warcraft shooting a giant column of light. Kind of a "you go, dude" thing.

I made an ass out of myself trying to buy gasoline with cash today. I had never done it before, so I asked for "17 gallons on pump #5". I don't even know why I thought that was the proper way of doing it.

$thismuch on pump #. That is, you typically ask for a dollar amount, not a gallon amount. At least one reason for which is that the choice of which gas type/grade to get is made afterwards, at the pump.

I much prefer to pay at the pump and not have to deal with people.

Also, this is totally not a dig at you Giant Speck, I'm genuinely curious: I've gathered that you are approximately my age, so how did you go X amount of years without ever buying gas? Do you not drive?

I buy gas all the time. In fact, because of my car's shitty gas mileage, I buy gas about once every ten days. I just haven't ever purchased gas with cash before. I always pay at the pump. The only reason I even attempted to pay with cash today is because I couldn't pass up the "pay with cash" price, which was about ten cents cheaper than the "pay with debit" price.

The last time I ever encountered a cash purchase for gasoline was way back in 2000, and that was because it was the only way you could buy gas and you paid for it after pumping the gas.

Ooohhhhhh. I tottally missed the with Cash part. Do you mean 10 cents cheaper because of debit fees? or was ther a different rate for paying with cash? I've never seen that.

Some gas stations pass debit card fees onto their customers and then post the cash-only price on their signs. Some stations, most notably ARCO, do not allow credit or debit.

That's odd. Every Arco I've been to (in So Cal) just charges me an extra 35 cents to use a card.

Hmm. Seems my info was a bit off. ARCO accepts debit, but does not accept credit.

Hehehe I'm totally addicted to Fitocracy. I'm sitting here at work figuring what I'll have to do level up. Looks like it's working for me.

My current goal level 5 by Friday, 574 points to go means 115 points per day....

I'm gaming my life..... or something.

I tried that out, back when I was unmotivated for the gym. I understood it, but it didn't really motivate me.

Now I am motivated for the gym, it hasn't even crossed my mind. However, I am using a google docs spreadsheet to track my progress - maybe fitocracy would be a better place to do that?

Yeah, it'll work to motivate some people, but definitely not all. When I play xbox 360 games I'm an achievement whore, so it didn't surprise me at all that fitocracy motivated me.

My advice would be to give it a try, you'll know quickly if it'll help, and if it doesn't you only really lose the time it took to sign up and track your first cpl workouts. *shrugs*

I always hate how achievements interrupt the plot, so I guess fitocracy just isn't my thing.

I should LARP a fit guy or something.
I edit my posts a lot and sometimes the words wrong order words appear in sentences get messed up.

LARP Forrest Gump. You get to quote the movie all day while you run non-stop. Cross-country running optional.

Is it safe?

Uh… it evals both user input and random code, unchecked, from an external site. This is what security-minded folks would refer to as Very Bad™.


Basically this is an implementation of the alt-text of this.

Personally I think it even cooler than SleepSort.

Yeah, I don't understand that. I'mma read "Very Bad" as "Very Bad" and avoid clicking it.

Clicking the link won't do anything. Running the actual web app probably won't do anything, but it there's a small chance that it will delete everything in your home folder and set fire to your dog.

The actual source code of the implementation makes for entertaining reading.

In an unusual turn of events today I ate breakfast at work, and it was everything I thought it could be. The bacon was crispy, but not too crispy. And the eggs have yet to cause any sulfurous odors. Not ruling out the chance of deadly gas, but so far so good!

....completely irrelevant to everything but brought up by this post

Why does my brain interpret "..has a nice bum" to be more sexual objectifying than "..has a nice ass" ?

Are Britishisms 'naughty' in your mind?

My gut reaction is the other way around. It may be the foreignness of 'bum', or the vowel sound in 'ass', or that the British origin of 'bum' associates it with like tea and primness somewhere in my head. All sorts of reasons it could be the other way around, maybe because 'ass' is more familiar it seems less remarkable and simply descriptive? Might depend on what terminology you use most frequently for that portion of the anatomy I am currently bored off of at work.

That's the screwed up thing - not at all. They seem delightfully naive. I mean, I know the context is different and all, what with the cultural meanings and connotations being radically different so much that words that seem completely innocent (fanny, for example) are.. not on the other side of the pond. But it's still a situation where a lot of the British lewd talk sounds - to me at least - like a bunch of 8 year olds trying to sound dirty and failing miserably.

Hence my befuddlement about myself, as I see bum as being entirely innocent and almost completely nonsexual, while ass is not at all innocent and often sexual.

And yes, this is all crap I should have included in my initial response, but didn't.

Honestly, if a Brit was trying to be sexually objectifying, they'd probably say "nice arse" rather than "nice bum".

Exactly.

I think we can just chalk this one up to my brain being stupid.

Is your brain being stupid, or is it being a silly billy/[insert britishcism]?
