And it actually was.  I tend to say "garbage day" with that sort of emphasis too when I remember. xD

Similarly, if I mention an event happened at night I can't help but copy Milhouse too.


Not sure what that Millhouse meem is...should...should I be offended?
Excuse me while I attempt to look this up :)

He/She waited three years for this moment, and then you unceremoniously whip out the ban hammer. You're a bad, bad man Starmongoose.

I'm seriously not sure the spamming resume thing even works.  Not just me, I know lots of people who got absolutely nowhere with that...

Knowing someone feels like just about the only way to get a job these days.

Which is basically why I constantly feel like I'm screwed and should just resign myself to the fact my life won't ever improve.

As for talking to my boss: My boss isn't his boss, he doesn't even work at our store. Of the five supervisors that share shifts at our store, myself included, only two of them actually work for our store, the others just cover shifts when they aren't at their own stores. Neither the original manager or this temporary one want to go through the process of hiring anyone, and the only reason I was hired is because the temporary manager found himself backed into a corner since he and the only other supervisor that works at this store were going on vacation at the same time.

Also, the district manager is fully aware that this temporary manager is incompetent but she doesn't want to bother finding another replacement, so is just letting it slide. And none of this matters because the fact is Mike intimidates my manager and therefore pretty much gets away with whatever.

It is absolutely the most fucked up place I have ever worked, and I once spent a summer working until 2am in a 7-Eleven.
That baseball bat option isbsounding more up your alley...

The bat option is also a great way to meet new people, just make sure not to drop the soap...
Seriously folks, don't suggest violence as advice, even in jest. You never know how close someone could be to reaching their breaking point, or if/when this sort of advice will emerge form their subconscious in a stressful situation.

Mickey- eating one meal a day is one of the worst things you can do.  It slows down your metabolism because it's in starvation mode and your body will start leeching nutrients from your muscles and bones, leaving you tiny and frail like an old man and too weak to do your workouts.  You are working out too, right?  And please tell me that the one meal you do eat is breakfast, because a good breakfast keeps you going.  I could never skip breakfast.  Although I get grumpy when I haven't eaten in too long, but skipping breakfast makes me downright hostile.

 The best thing to do is to eat small meals 5-6 times a day, so your body gets a constant source of fuel and ramps up the metabolism.  I know our lifestyle isn't conducive to fueling up every 4 hours, so I eat breakfast, lunch, pre-workout snack, small workout snack (the two hour window after a workout is when the body is a sponge for nutrients so eat something healthy), dinner. 

In my perfect world, my meals would be breakfast, second breakfast, lunch, pre-workout snack, post-workout snack, dinner, all in nice little 4 hour intervals.

Pretty much this.

In fact, one of the reasons I had to start looking out for my health is because I would often eat one large (unhealthy) meal a day, so at some point my metabolism just said "sod it" and I started to gain weight that eventually led me to where I needed to make some big changes. Dieting isn't about "not eating", it's about eating right.

tl;dr You need to eat better Mickey, or you'll ruin your health :/

Meeting online people in real life is a very odd thing. Heck, even seeing someones picture or hearing their voice is strange enough if you had no prior knowledge of how a person you've been interacting with looks/sounds, as it's often much different then you would expect.

The opening of Pixars "UP" made me shed a manly tear, luckily I was wearing 3D glasses at the time :)

On a diet, since my body slowly started giving subtle signs of giving up on me. While not obese by any means, I was starting to get a little too chubby for my own good, and my joints and other body parts made sure to let me know (not to mention getting a phone call from a doctor after doing some routine tests, asking if I'm being treated for diabetes and that I should really look into it, set of some major alarm bells).
Sucks to have to say goodbye to eating most of the stuff I like, but on the flip side I've been at it for a few weeks now and feel pretty good in comparison to when I started.

I was thinking of doing BoF4 or Wild Arms 2 after Lunar 2 is done which will be done either tomorrow or next Monday.

I vote for BoFIV.

Grandia II is getting close to wrapping up as well. Considering KotOR as my new weekly stream, but it's not set in stone yet.

Since this is pretty old, and we have a streaming thread in the General section already, I'll lock this one.

Never been a huge fan of SO. Oddly enough one of my first game purchases for the PS3 was SO4, that I ended up never really playing (because I had an old TV at the time, and could barely make anything out). From what I hear, I might went to keep it that way. Shame about SOV, I remember everyone having high hopes for it.
11  The Rest / General Discussions / RPGFanbot is rigged? on: June 29, 2016, 03:18:17 PM
For weeks now, people have been speculating about the legitimacy of RPGFanbot (that lives on RPGFan's Twitch channel), and it's "random" battles.
We all know who's pulling the strings though, so now is the time to speak out, now is the time to avenge your lost XP by voting in the poll! Lets show em that WE'RE NOT HAVING IT!

For some reason this thread got locked. I've unlocked it - no one did anything wrong.

Apparently, even the forum had enough of the drama :)

I always enjoy people completely overreacting to game announcements and early non hands on demos.
I remember seeing a clip from an early showing of Skyrim a few years ago. Some guy was showing of basic gameplay. Moved a bit, then took a random sword swing at nothing in particular and at that point the room went nuts. It was insane.
