  1. I've made the case before. Discord has its niche and it does not and never will replace forum discussion. I'm also of the opinion reddit can just be toxic simply in thanks to the karma system. It's so hard to have a constructive conversation when anonymous voting decides whether your post is seen or buried and hidden. Anyway I hope you like us! We don't bite far as I know.

    Are you familiar with Dragon Age? If so I would love to see your take on Merrill!
  3. I must say having read the books and admittedly only playing a few hours of the games (just wasn't into them) I rather enjoyed this as well. I took a break from it after I think it was episode 4? I was mother to a four-month-old at that time and was incredibly sickened by the imagery. But I did eventually press on and what remained of the series was satisfactory. I'm very pleased with Cavill as Geralt and would love to see more of him in that role.
  4. I really didn't need the Village People stuck in my head, but here we are. I remember this one! And I know I did at some point in time watch it. I feel like someone was told "your girlfriend is your right hand" and that person took it as spiteful inspiration. You want a weird anime? Look up Sekko Boys.
  5. I am the Scary Dolphin.
  6. Depends where we set the baseline. Whose to say we aren't already living in a fantasy? Maybe the flow of energy is magic.
  7. If there are surveys in the US, they aren't provided by CDC that I've heard of. That could possibly change, but with the CDC itself suffering for funding like many others, including hospitals (non-emergency surgeries halted + nurses working overtime + overload of patients = budget crisis) it's got to be on the backburner. Anyway, as for the news media, I encourage everyone to turn to independent media outlets. They're usually funded by their viewers directly, rather than big businesses and shareholders, and are therefore obligated to report honestly and don't cater to any corporate inter
  8. Recoveries are harder to keep track of in the same way unreported cases are. A large majority of cases are sent home to recover, hospitals are saving their beds for only the most serious and high risk cases. If a patient recovers at home, those numbers often go unreported as it would be up to the patient to follow-up, and simply put many don't unless they actually perish. Cases which close in hospitals are recorded no matter the outcome- so baring in mind what I said earlier, this naturally all adds up to having more new deaths to report on. We can safely assume therefore that the trend o
  9. What you do is make prolonged eye contact with them until they become uncomfortable and ask what you want. Then you smile, wink, and walk backward until you disappear mysteriously into the cornfield.
  10. Lol! We have one of those, too.
  11. TIL about Scott Caruthers, a cult leader who convinced his followers that he was alien-Jesus, needed to harvest "positive energy" from young girls, and communicated with the mothership via cats.

    Hmmmm.

  12. I have a keyboard app on my mobile which is super goofy about autocorrecting. I start to type "could" and it changes it to "xoxo". It evidently decided I meant to say "rape chalk" and I didn't catch it in time. I need to get a new one for sure.
  13. It hasn't reached my area yet, but working on what's effectively our frontline in dealing with it, we've been doing what we can and taking due diligence. There is a worldwide PPE shortage due to this, and with much of the manufacturing of such items coming from China, it's a bit of a concern in the healthcare world. Our site has adopted new temporary guidelines which create a "skeleton minimum" PPE requirement so we aren't using any unnecessary equipment. We also have information posted in our lobbies informing patients/visitors that the masks are only to be used by those presenting cough/sore

    You may know their names, but how well do you know their titles?
  14. Can I offer a tip? Thieves guild spoilers:
  15. Ive done it. Been doing it since 2014. Aaaay
  16. Wolf's Rain and Wolf Children. Two unrelated anime about wolves that will both totally wreck your heart.
  17. I'll just use this opportunity to plug this wonderfully insightful video I found on the intertoob. There are 3 videos in this series (so far), one in fact focusing on Minecraft, and I recommend them all if not just for entertainment. As for the anime, I'll probably check it out. I find it hilarious the title of the anime is so absurdly long it couldn't fit in the thread title, though.
  18. Nah, I'm not giving up my ink just to visit a hot spring. There are a few which accept tattoos, and some I think you can notify them ahead of time and they can set up a private room. I respect their culture but I'm won't forsake my own to please anyone. If I can't find any that accept me, I simply don't go. No hard feelings to be had.
  19. Nah, not for me. I'd love to visit, though, just for the experience. I would love to learn to cook some of their foods, go hiking, and visit an onsen if I'm allowed (I'm covered in tattoos, I understand I wouldn't be welcome at many.) I don't think I'd be especially interested in the anime-related things there. It would just be spending money on nicknacks I wouldn't want to keep in the long run. But I agree with Kohloo. Any chance to travel abroad to live and learn another culture is a treat and you should go for it!
  20. That's ok. I might just have an exceptional memory for people and names, even when I didn't see them for long.
  21. Hey, welcome back Teru, I remember you. AF moved platforms sometime late 2017 and with the move the live chat went bye-bye. If you're interested in joining a discord group in the meantime, you can find the link in this thread. Again, nice seeing some old faces back!
  22. I enjoyed it, although it did surprise me with its more somber tone. If you're used to Trevor's usual humorous approach to his stories, it certainly feels different (especially for me in audiobook format in which he himself is narrating). But it was nonetheless a good read and I feel like I took away a lot of perspective about racial prejudices in S. Africa, with and without the context of the apartheid. There was a lot in there about his mother and everything she had to do to raise him against all the odds stacked against her. That part I loved. You really walk away from it with a healthy res
