General Chit Chat / Re: If there are any Pokemon fans....

Speaking of Pokémon...don't say this too loudly around Nightmare, but I have a 3DS and a Pokémon game now.  Two games, in fact, but only played one thus far.

Uh-oh, I think he heard that...

But don't ask me why, I started playing Crystal on a ROM years ago thinking I'd drop it shortly thereafter.  I got hooked.  Don't know why.

I hope you remember to create my birthday thread when the time comes. :P  Granted, I don't celebrate them that much NEmore...though if people give me stuff I'll accept it. :D

Well, whether you celebrate or not, Happy Cake Day almighty overlord over all here at GU. ;)

No.  I didn't.

That is all.

Here is the type of stuff I'm talking about.  I decided to go with creating a deletion discussion on "Irony" out of sheer coincidence.

Predictably, someone then nominated "Coincidence" for deletion, ironically.

How about something I can do?  I'm not trying to destroy the site for a day, just change something or make a silly suggestion.  Redirects I can't do, adding scary faces I can't do, etc...this is more back-end capable, not editor-end.

For instance, I could suggest that irony be deleted because it's just a mere coincidence, and start a deletion debate on the matter.  Silly things like that, not "wreck the site" stuff.

Oh, gosh. I suck at April Fool's jokes. XD Maybe if I come up with an idea, I'll post it here.

That's what I'm asking for. :P

And it kicks off in four hours.

Wikipedia editors routinely celebrate April Fool's Day by doing funny stuff.  Last year, I created a proposal to move the Wikipedia servers to Canada that got some good attention.  I need a good idea to top that for this year.  Anyone have anything?  It could be another proposal, or a page that should be marked for deletion (like 2013 last year), etc.

I'll link to whatever I create based on suggestions here. :)

Wait...they're doing this tomorrow, too?

They DO realize no one will take anything they say seriously, yes?


P.S. Before anyone angrily replies, look at the calendar.

We have a third party.  We actually have a fourth federally.  We have a lot of minorities and we end up back at the polls lately, hasn't been like this in the past but people can't agree who should run it these days here either.  The only difference is the third party means no party has a majority in some cases, this being one of many.

We almost need a two party system here.

I now have two backup drives.  First was a 500 MB backup drive, and I periodically copied my music files over to it (you have no idea how big that folder has become, I always find new stuff to listen to).  That one also has a full backup of my old laptop from something like a year ago, not entirely updated.  I now have a newer 2 TB external drive, with 1.74 TB still available.  Don't like all the folders on the drive as factory-set, but there are two folders on it for stuff backed up from my older laptop (the one I'm now typing on) and another for stuff from my newer one (which has a keyboard issue and I took in today, which is the reason you see me today; I've been forgetting to log into GU on the newer one and don't have that one for a week or so).  The older laptop folder has pretty much all of my music (some still has to be added, which is fine, I'm on it for a week) and another folder with miscellaneous items; the newer one has everything from that laptop that I saved in a month of using it with the exception of the only MP3 I added to the system myself (since I was so slow copying my music over), and I will have to redownload that MP3 to add here.

Interesting complication for me.  I cut all my music off of this computer and moved it to the external drive (this one was running low on space again).  I will have to selectively restore music to this computer and have iTunes recognize it so I can listen to some music again for a while.

What GW said.  Talk about being in the right place at the right time.


You want unconstitutional?

Look up the new Ontario budget.  Tabled yesterday.  Currently before the Commons.  And one opposition party is not yet flat-out against it...despite the fact that the Liberals are now threatening to use laws to circumvent collective bargaining efforts.  In other words, union negotiations are now useless; they could argue for a pay raise, but if they do, the government will create a law that makes it irrelevant.  Nice to know the employer could agree to whatever the union wants and not have to honour it, eh?

Take care of that homework.  Glad you're feeling better!  I don't think you'll be able to rest easy until the stitches are out, however.  That'll be the time you're fully healed, and you'll likely sport a scar the rest of your life from the experience.

For humour (on a homework break of course!), read and watch this video on Jon Stewart having stitches removed by Cameron Diaz.

Holy [bleepness].  This is absolutely horrible having to go through something like this.  I guess your wisdom teeth aren't much of an emergency compared to this, eh? :)

But yeah, don't overdo it.  Just sit online every day and chat with your friends as they appear.  Better than going out and screwing yourself up by overexerting yourself.  I have MSN if you need someone else to talk to. :)

There is such a thing as being a responsible adult with a firearm in the house. I have a .22 rifle hanging next to a door not 10 feet away from me right now.

As for the video, the kid is lucky it wasnt LID. Her immediate quote after watching it? "I'd have made her shoot the laptop."

Haha, say hi to LID for me. :)  That line made me chuckle.

I watched this too (Saturday I think, when I found it on here NEway).  One word: Wow.
