I'd rather keep the kid and get rid of the cat.
Yeah, I think a lot of women guilt hubby into selling when a baby is on the way. "We could use the money", etc. etc. Realistically, having a kid is not all that expensive, if you do it right. Food is free for at least 6-8 months or so. Diapers can get expensive, but using washable cloth ones cuts that cost out. Other than that, they just sit there and leak fluids for a year or so. And the clincher is, when you have one, everyone GIVES you tons of baby stuff.

He is absolutely correct! I might add the Iron band gets heavier and tighter every day.

    What I want to know is if he pulled those names up from memory or if a writer researched them for him.

    I think the Leonard Lakofka at GenCon X reference was real.

    Funny how a game that has involved hundreds of hours of social interaction with upwards of 100 people over many years...including my wife, best man, guys-for-whom-I-have-been-best man and many other really really good friendships....not to mention their wives, girlfriends, parents, etc..how is this anti-social?

    On the plus side, notice how the D&D=Satanism theme is now considered to be quite ridiculous?

    Thanks for the link.  Very fun stuff.

Seems the price for shrinkwrapped Q1s seems to have righted itself:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8775559243

$170 reduction, I gues that probably means that the 2 previous Q1s that broke $150 mark were a bit over priced. :roll:

<edit>

This shrinked GDQ1-7 actually went for very good price as well:

Ugh... I was breaking down the shipping boxes that had accumulated in my office over the last few weeks and noticed that one of them was a used pizza box.  In the sellers defense he had covered the grease and crumbs with a generous layer of newspaper and some plastic sheeting it was still rather gross.

LOL anyone watching wife swap right now....guest wife just smashed one of the guys minis with a hammer as punishment  8O  This episode  bodes well for the proliferation of the stereo-typical theory "that all gamers are odd "

Hmmm, $150+ might indeed be too high, but $23.82 I think is too low.  This is a flawed auction, and probably shouldn't be used as a means of arriving at a benchmark...  Seller used a stock photo here, probably putting off a number of bidders (it would me)...  We're talking about a supposedly shrinkwrapped item, and I want to see whether it looks like original shrink or reshrink...

bonk!

Maybe I am wrong but it seems that Cougarrinard is no longer a Titanium Rated Powerseller.
So sad,  :( .
What's happen?
Is it a dark omen of a recession in the RPG market ?   8O

Don't panic, I will gladly send you some bucks if you want to sell your H series or whatever before the global bearish tendency  :wink: .

Warning, tomorrow is a $0.10 listing day on EBay, so everyone get ready for all the morons out there listing eveything under the sun for ridiculous prices. :roll:

It is Saturday around 8:15 a.m EST here and I just noticed I am the only registered user on the Acaeum.

I gather I am the only one who didn't indulge in the St. Patty's drinkfest. Yep, married w/children. 8O

I'm ashamed to admit I was too sick to go out drinking yesterday.  I hereby resign as a part-Irish-Canadian.  :oops:

Well, I went out last night and drank myself into oblivian.  :) I crawled out of bed about an hour ago, but I still haven't been able to fully wake up yet.

I haven't been drunk in almost 10 years!  I haven't been under the influence of anything in almost 5 years . . .


. . . Things have sure changed a lot since I used to live in Too-Stoned (Tucson) Arizona.  8)
