Pretty sure that I scared my co-workers with how hard I laughed at this.

Here's hoping for a natural 20! Also, Chrome is what Firefox was - lightweight, stable, and full of win. Firefox is what IE was - bloated, memory leaky, and messy. IE is...well, IE.

You have to open this. I live in the most eastern part of North America, and I would fly to California just to go to an 80s brewcade.

Grrr...it's nutjobs like that who can give fandom as a whole a bad name. People, if you see this kind of thing happening, step up!

*LOL* While Voyager isn't exactly my favourite of the Star Trek franchises, this reminded me of their first episode, where Tom Paris was trying to order Tomato Soup. "Hot, plain, tomato soup!" I'm not sure exactly why. On an unrelated note, this sounds fantastic - will definitely try it this weekend.

Sweet zombie jesus! I must see if the Canadian Hallmark stores carry this. If I can obtain one, it'll go on the tree right next to the first ornament I ever bought for myself: The Shuttlecraft Galileo.

Awesome, another shirt for D&D night! BTW, any chance your dice shirt might re-appear?

Do you really use dice to choose the winner? If so, what kind of dice? Also, THANKS for the Schrodinger's Cat reference! That was hilarious!

It's a good thing to relax and bask in nature - something most of us don't take enough time to do.

LOVED the bumper with you & your wife. Next time, preface your arcade request with something equally awesome for her, and you might just get somewhere ;)

Indeed, we truly live in The Futureâ„¢ - most people have portable communicators, PADDs, and an Operating System that seems to work like magic.

My wife and I recently got a D&D game going with some of her co-workers (who are also full of awesome), and for the first game we both wore matching shirts - your dice shirts :)

I read Hyperspace in high school, and I remember that it was the first book to completely break my brain. For 2 or 3 days after reading about 1/2 of the book, I couldn't get anything done because I was trying to wrap my head around these awesome ideas.

Thanks for the insights in 2008. I found your comments on fatherhood particularly insightful - while I'm not a dad yet, it's helped me better understand my own. Oh, and if there's an East Coast version of PAX next year (which is rumoured), PLEASE come!

Just finished reading The Watchmen graphic novel, and I've been occasionally reading bits of the 4e Forgotten Realms Campaign Guide. Jeez the Realms have changed since the last time I looked in!

I never had the experience of the "satanic panic" related to D&D - guess I was lucky in that respect.

Ah yes, the good ol' days of AD&D 2nd Edition. D&D 4th Edition is a cake walk comparatively...although they could do with clearer instructions on character creation.

I'm going to implement the 3-token variant of Rule 17b (perhaps it should be called 17c?) for my D&D 4e group, because most of the players are really new to the game.

I laughed like a maniac when I saw this...and I'm at work. I'm fairly certain they're calling the nice men in the clean white suits to take me away... On a side note, don't let the idiots get you down - if they can't see past whatever hangups they've got from the early 90's, then they've got some nasty karma coming their way.
