I’m not telling anyone not to enjoy their comforts. Where are people getting that? Enjoy them! I am *solely* saying complaining about having too many games sounds pretty petty, especially in light of current events.

For the record, not that it’s anyone’s business Leyviur, but I have moved overseas and am working to reduce poverty—not in Africa, but rural Sumatra.

Nope, I'm just trying to point out how silly it sounds. Idle conversation or not. I usually hit the BBC before RPGfan, so I guess the contrast between the two sites and the absurdity of it really stuck out to me. Sorry if I brought too much reality into this sacred sphere!

Hey, well as long as people know how ridiculous they sound whining about their overabundance of games. Like Grim, Dincrest, Kevadu and a few others said, there's a simple solution to the "problem" of having too many games: stop buying them. It is really not something to be stressed about.

Well, when things like that are going on in the world, it comes across as pretty lame to be complaining about having too many games to play.

And really, what's silly about it? This is reality. It's happening now, and it's terrible.

People are stressed out because they have *too many* games to play? Truly a 21st century problem of the privileged. I think we may need a little perspective...

It may seem like I'm judging you and...well....yes, I am :P

Got a call from my guide friend here that an Amorphophallus titanum (aka Misshapen Giant Penis) flower is blooming in the jungle. So, tomorrow I'll be heading out with him to try and see it. Not too excited about the two-hour motorcycle ride through horrible mountain roads that's ahead of me though.

Went to opening day of the annual Kerinci Lake Festival, which highlights the local culture and dance in our regency here on Sumatra. Had a great time. Some of the costumes are amazingly intricate and colorful.

... Screw the guilds, this looks way cooler than our parades, shooting competitions and fairs. Although there was a Mario Kart wagon this year...

Nevermind, that Kerinci Lake Festival still looks much more interesting.
Hah, most of my local friends refused to go to the festival because they thought it was "boring." I'm sure they would think your fairs are the best things ever. The unfamiliar is always more interesting. :)

Gah! Little Chibi bit through the sensor bar cable! Now I can't use my Wii >_<

My cat used to chew through the chords on my n64 controllers. I forgot how many of those I had to buy cause of that -_-
My cats chewed through lots and lots of wires in their day. Just get a wire stripper and some electrical tape and reconnect the wires. It will be good as new and it really isn't difficult.

Some say that with the policy, FDR restored hope and self-respect to tens of millions of desperate people, upgraded the national infrastructure and saved capitalism in his first term. Although, others aren't happy that it enlarged the powers of the federal government and built up labor unions, saying that it slowed long-term economic growth, and weakened the business community.

I love how modern society forgot or denies that a thousand years ago, it was perfectly normal to have sex with a 12 year old.
Is it some kind of historical hypocrisy?
There were lots of things normal in the past that we rightly are disgusted with now: child labor, slavery, incest, religious wars, using non-CFL lights, cannibalism, etc. etc. etc (although sadly many persist).  Please tell me you're not trying to defend pedophilia???

Two tiny earthquakes today. A 4.6 that was 40 miles away and a 5.5 about 85 miles away. Slept through the first one, and was driving during the second, so I felt nothing either time. More to come?

I agree, my last two posts weren't serious. I just thought this thread needed a little emo :D

When i was a child, i used to think the world was full of mystery, adventure, and excitement. Now i know it is nothing but misery, hopelessness, and pain.

When I was a child, I used to think that when I got married we would be happy together forever and my wife would always be faithful to me.
