I certainly don't fit the stereotype--well north of three bills--and one of the reasons I got into D&D was that size and strength (of the players, not the PC's) DIDN'T matter! :)

BTW . . . is there such a thing as a "very good copy of H1"? (One without a crushed box, that is!) :)  :)  :D

I mean...I don't think being fat makes a bad gamer.  Hopefully.

Coug reminds me of Harold Lauder because of his bluster.  He practically screamed at me in our one exchange of communications.  His insistence on his exalted Ebay status seems like the shrill voice of a rather insecure fellow.

Cougar for President?  You gotta be kidding.  At least Bush doesn't go around calling everything "VGC".

I'm no skinny thing myself...but I just threw that in there as the perfect stereotype of the junk food eating, cola swilling, no exercise doing gamer. I mean, it's gotten to the point where I cringe when my wife goes with me on those very seldom ocassions to the local game/comic store....inevitably there are a couple of big guys, no problem there, but they always have stained, too small t-shirts on, bad personal hygiene, and they are ogling covers of the newest issue of Supergirl while commenting on what local fast food franchise has the tastiest grease.  If I'm lucky, when my wife is there they don't amble over to the game section and start making inane gaming comments about their 19/5/4 lvl Druid/half dragon/sadist with Kung Fu grip and Great Cleave that killed an army of dire kobolds at the gaming table the last night....that  always sends my wife out the door giggling.  It just reinforces every neg thought she has about gamers being the outcast dregs of the universe.  I want to pull aside Chubs and Orca and say "Look, dudes, it takes FIVE MINUTES to take a shower, wash your hair, throw on some deordorant cologone, brush your teeth, and pick out a shirt that's XXXXL from your closet.  And for gods sake MIX IN A SALAD between the visits to Dickie's BBQ and Chicken Express!  Or at least a diet Coke....."
  Ok, so I'm a little peeved, last night two GIGANTIC dudes were in the local gamestore eating greasy BBQ AT THE COUNTER while pawing through the rack of Goodman Games stuff nearby.  When I went to checkout, there were stains on the counter, and the odor of unwashed human everywhere.  Sheesh.

Thanks Xax. I was feeling too lazy to search for the kitty. Harami's pic of Cougar at the coffee maker is funny as hell.

I used to howl when I read draco's e-mails. Couger. The hilarious part is he didn't even realize it!

Didn't Ralf get into a huge catfight with Cougie a while back?

He bought the old TSR game price guide from me about a month ago on eBay.  I told him he was missed and he said he had been busy and was just getting back into collecting again.  Hopefully he'll pop up here some time soon.

His last visit here was on my birthday last year. We need the German factor back.

I was wondering what the hell happened to Ralf.  He is certainly missed.

MikeB---at least your wife just giggles when she hears gamers talk about their characters &/or adventures.  I would hope you do the same to her when she's talking about characters on her favorite recurring TV soap opera or talk show! :lol:
BTW, where IS this place you are describing--between the fried-chicken restaurant and the BBQ place? :)
Where I go to find things, it's the SKINNY people who have the problems you describe; them and their kids/rugrats!

Seriously--I do agree with you on several points; I go crazy when someone plays Monopoly with me, for example, and eats buttered popcorn, and I get nervous when they put down their glass of diet Coke next to the board.  (I also collect versions of Monopoly as well as D&D.)

That's what the fighting wheel is for - at least the lamenated ones.
