Claws or not, pets are still going to make a mess. Unless you get a declawed naked cat or something.


It could be worse, though:

Lets hope he doesn't have social anxieties that make it difficult for him to use a strange litterbox.

As for going for an older pet like Tomara suggested, I don't know if I could resist the urge to get a puppy/kitten.  I know they can be a terror, but I'm hoping the good will outweigh the bad in that case.

They're cute and cuddly for a couple of months at most, then they start wreaking havoc and if it's your first pet and difficult to train... This applies more to dogs than to cats, though. Cats wreak havoc and don't give a shit about what you think :P

But, if you have the patience and know what you're doing, it is very rewarding :)

We got one of our dogs from the shelter. He was such a sweet dog, everyone loved him. Unfortunatelly, he was also deadly afraid of dark-haired women and newspapers. He'd crawl into a corner everytime he saw one. That wasn't really a problem though. The people at the shelter had informed us about it and he slowly grew over it. He was partly heidewachtel and easy to train.

The dog we have now is a chihuahua from a breeder. The thing is more or less untrainable, because people always insist on spoiling her. She's also incredibly stupid. You know the trick where you pretend to throw the ball? She falls for it every single time.

My bunnies are all from a shelter. The people there were always able to tell me a lot about their behaviour, personality and special needs. The ones I got from there are all very weird though. I don't remember how I ended up with a masochistic albino with a runny nose and the tenacity of a cockroach, but she was a charming pet in her own right.

Anyway, for your first pet I recommend an older animal from a shelter, one that has already been trained. Kittens and puppies are cute, but training them isn't always easy, especially when it's your first time. If you're going to adopt a cat, learn about their behaviour beforehand and use that knowledge to pick one that suits you. As for dogs, I'd recommend a larger breed, because the smaller ones are often either yappy, whiny or scared shitless of everything that moves. Get one that's easy to work with, one that doesn't have a huge personal manual.

I dunno what it is about that fur pattern, but every cat I've seen like that makes an abnormally skilled and efficient hunter, to which, they will love to bring dead whatever-they-murdered to you. Then they will expect cuddles for hours. In this order.

Ours has a lot less white, but is more or less like that. Except for the cuddles-part. She hates that. She also dislikes treats and other luxuries. And she doesn't always kill the things she gives us. On several occasions, she released a live mouse into our house. I gues her thought-process was "If I release it here, I can play with it again later." Actually pretty smart, weren't it for the fact that I'm a pretty good mouse catcher myself.
1490  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Covenant of the Plume, opinions? on: December 17, 2009, 03:09:03 PM
I like how gameplay and story are connected through the plume. Very often there is a big barbwire fence between the two, so it's always nice when developers find a good way to link the two together. The plume in itself is a very interesting concept, because you're almost always forced to chose between two evils. In most games you play the good side because it has the most benefits or the bad side because it's awesome/more entertaining. In Covenant of the Plume you're an evil asshole no matter how you look at it and there are still choices to make.

I enjoyed it. Not as much as I enjoyed the original, but it's nowhere near a bad game. It just isn't a game for everyone, but that can (sadly) be said about many good games.

I thought it was some kind of Plants vs Zombie Ducks thing.

Omar or Hiro. The one time I got to play as a female character, I named her Tacey. I have a weird sense of humour.

I have been looking into that, actually. People have been asking us (= our craftsclub thingy) to make things like socks for iPods and other stuff related to electronics. I have yet to find a product I could actually buy and use, though.

I made this as a Christmas present for my cousin's son. It was less work than I expected.

Sleep paralysis isn't that bad as long as the hallucinations are good. I sometimes hear wonderful music. I could live without the bloodcurdling screams though...

Yay, a new over-priced headache machine! Just what this world needs :D

I have to admit I'm kind of curious, but it's not something I look forward to.

1499  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Games you got sick after playing. on: October 26, 2009, 03:11:22 AM
I hate it when I play a game when I'm sick. I always get reminded of those awful times when I'm playing it healthy and don't want to touch it. Back when FF8 first came out I got the flu and was throwing up while playing and it has tainted me ever since. Even though it has been 10 years I still remember that. Funny thing is I still love the game (one of my fav FF's).

There are a lot of games I associate with stuff, but fortunatelly not one of them is connected to throwing up.

Dark Chronicle - my brother's smelly socks
Xenosaga - my brother's smelly socks and being very cold (I opened a window to make the smell go away, but that made the room cold)
Final Fantasy Tactics - that Numa Numa song
Pokémon Stadium - seeing clearly (it was the first game I played after getting my glasses)

There aren't any games I connected with being sick. I rarely get sick. Sure, I get colds, but those don't really count as being sick. I don't even know what a headache feels like. Seriously, what does a headache feel like?

I seem to remember a thread many years back consisting of pages and pages of hentai.  That day I became the chief of my tribe.

Wasn't that the one that started with that one ero guro picture? That thread was like 4chan before 4chan even existed...

I think you might be on to something.  Some chick was trapped in a mattress that was eating her and she had that typical "mattress rape" face on of horror and confusion.

Wait, I thought it was the one with the naked girl being sliced into bits with a papercutter. Does this mean there were multiple hentai threads?

The eating mattress thing sounds like that one crappy horror movie with the haunted house where teenagers go to have sex and then they're all eaten by a bed. Well, not exactly eaten. Stomach acid like stuff bubbles out of the mattress and they kinda dissolve and it looks really silly, because they don't even try to get off the bed and the acting is absolutely horrible.

In case it wasn't obvious yet, RPGfan took my innocence :(
