And then there's the whole body of Christ thing. What part exactly are people eating and swallowing?

I'm like legits hungry for communion wafers for some reason.

-- edit --

Also where do you even buy communion wafers?

-- edit --

I mean I could order them online but I won't because I like to pretend I have SOME standards.

Couldn't you just eat empty wafer ice cream cones? It's basically the same stuff, just a different shape.

Flying for the first time is the absolute best! That sense of freedom when you find out there are next to no limitations and you really can go wherever you want. Plus, the song is catchy as hell.

The downside is that the world suddenly becomes a lot smaller. Which is weird, because some of the high up area's really drive home the immense scale of the game.

Hey, I lived through two big forum resets. A bit of downtime is nothing! Now that I think about it, this incarnation of the RPGfan forums is now 10 years (and 20 days) old. It's a RPGfan record! :D

1. Trails in the Sky SC
2. Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold
3. Legend of Legacy

Stella Glow - That was... a lot better than I expected. When I noticed some huge Madoka fan was trying to fuse Ar Tonelico and Luminous Arc, I feared the worst. However, it turned out to be an SRPG with engaging battles and atleast some self-respect. I mean, sure, it had a female ninja dressed in a fishnet kimono and bikini that was atleats five sizes too small, and yes, conducting and tuning were totally allusions to sex, but there was so much more room to be sleazy and they kept themselves in check. Somewhat, anyway. ... I'm not sure how that is a compliment... Anyway, battles fun were and I love how colourful they made the world. I'm even considering replaying it to max all the not!social links and get a different character ending. (I went with Sakuya's the first time around, which turned out to be great fun.)

One of my bucket list places to visit is Glass Beach (aka Fort Bragg). Imagine a beach of washed up glass that's softened and able to walk on. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glass_Beach_(Fort_Bragg,_California)

Ohhhh, shiny ;)

That is the prettiest garbage I have ever seen.

And now I want Pokemon Sun/Moon to feature "300 New Pokemon," and it's all different colors of the same Pokemon.

Haven't they sorta done that already? There's an Unown for every letter of the alphabet, and isn't there some stupid butterfly that's available in a bunch of different colours/patterns?

BTW did you know there are already legendary cuddly jellfyfish out there? The first ten were made with a slightly different pattern, and there was a golden one (basically just a jelly made with shiny thread) that was only available at a charity auction. Oh, and while the ones with the rainbow coloured aren't exactly unique, there is a bigger version out there, so just can just kind of pretend the rainbow jellies merge together into a big one once you have collected enough. What else... Ah, yes, the Princess Jellyfish! That one is extra large (pink + white) and wears a crown made of beads with a pearly shine. Princess Jellyfish is the original jelly and all other jellies were made in her image. Finally there's are five mini jellies that were made with embroidery floss. While collecting, you must watch out for the evil jellies. These are black and red and there is one in every batch. Some look downright evil, others just somewhat upset, but nobody knows what they're capable off, so watch out!

Wait I'm sure this has come up but do you sell your jellyfish online anywhere???

Not really, but I trade them sometimes (of used games I want or books bought through Bookdepository). The problem is, international shipping makes them much more expensive than I'd like them to be.

Tomara, you should get your own place and then fill a closet completely full of crocheted jellyfish, so that if anyone opens the closet they get buried in crocheted jellyfish.

I want this.  I can never have a bad day of work if I have this to come home to.

I also feel a little sad sometimes that most of all you regulars here live billions of feet away so we can't drink; I'm stuck with normal non-gaming drinking buddies.

If my calculations are correct, I've made over 300 over the years. You could go on a quest to collect them all. You'll be able to find most in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, but I know some went as far as Italy and even Japan. O, and one of them is attached to the backpack of a backpacker. I have no idea where that one might be right now.

Good luck!

I've done 52 on green tea with extra sugar. If it gets really bad, I could crawl under the table of our booth and take a nap there. Or merchandise tends to be super soft and cuddly, so that helps.

She doesn't appear to be thinking about gruesome ways to make her neighbour shut up about boybands and how she is totally going to marry her favourite member, like, after he notices her in the crowd at a concert and instantly falls in love with her... So, uh, probably not.

Speaking of anime, I hate having to arrange hotel rooms for anime conventions. Next big one I've got like two lectures and a workshop scheduled, but I haven't been able to find a place to stay yet that's nearby and doesn't cost Tony Stark levels of money. I'd ask the magazine for help, but they keep forgetting their editor-in-chief is a living person that actually exists. Like, last year, they ordered pizza and I asked if I could have some as well. They said maybe, and then threw the leftover pizza out.

Edit: damnit, I'm so stressed I can't sleep. I could crochet some stuff, but...

Yeah. Sure, the jellyfish sell well (they have fans that come back every year for a new one to add to their collection), but come on, this is starting to look a little creepy.

Maybe I should try to figure out if I can stay awake for 72 hours. If I can, I won't need a hotel room. Problem solved, stress gone!

Edit 2: I think I'm going to vomit.

While working on an anime-themed planner for students, I realised something: I spent a lot of time sitting in the backrow, on the left, next to the window in high school - why am I not the main character of an anime?

... Oh, yeah, wait, the glasses...

The inverted colours are a nice touch. (Is that Elma wearing 'my' hoodie? I wore that one all the time in my final dozens of hours with the game. It's a good hoodie. Coincidently, I also wore HB's glasses all the time. I stole those from his face the minute he joined the party.)

Without the sexual undertones (and overtones...) behind the scenes, they do look like regular mascots/children's tv show characters and the ones I've met always made an effort to act like it towards children. As weird as the situation is, I'm not too surprised the children had a great time.

You guys are missing the point.  Days are shorter in the winter and there's nothing you can do to your clocks to change that.  The motivation behind DST was more along the line that if you didn't do it the sun would rise really early in the summer, so you might as well move things by an hour and have more light in the evening.

Not that I support the practice, mind you, but that was the thought behind it.  Again winter is standard time, it's changed for the summer.

Go north enough and the sun will only be under for less than eight hours in summer. It's up when you get up and up when you go to bed.  I can't imagine why it still being light outside at 10PM is something important...

Oh well. Isn't not so much DST as the whole lack of darkness thing that messes with my sleep schedule.

It'd be cool if money could buy you a sense of self worth!

For many people money is their sense of self worth.

But nobody does stuff outside in winter anyways, so why save the daylight?

I'm sure that's the rationale, anyways.

Going home from school/work? I guess it's not a big deal if everyone travels by car or train, but in the Netherlands many children ride their bicycle to school and back. I was eleven when I started secondary education and had to cycle 10+ kilometers from and to, sometimes having to ride in the dark both ways.

I don't mind DST, but that's probably thanks to the country I live in. No DST means sun setting before 4 PM in winter. Okay, the transition is still not fun, but I manage by adjusting my sleep schedule two weeks in advance.

But winter is standard time.  It's the summer that's 'savings' time.

It is? In context it makes much more sense to save daylight in winter, atleast where I'm from. We have way too much daylight in summer anyway. Not that not having DST would make summer for fun: sun rising before 4AM, yay...
