Re: Games that aged well (PC)

Starcraft and Warcraft 2 are obvious choices for me. Subspace a.k.a. Continuum, played that sooo much when I was younger, and still find it fun to this day. As for Half-Life / Halo being in this thread, I support Half-Life but not Halo, and here's why: 1. Halo is three years newer (five years on the...

Re: American Food (Split from the man thread for being wussy)

I know storebought beef just reeeeeeeeeally doesn't compare to cows from the farm. Ahhhh, Stinky, you made good steaks. Rather depends on the type, in my experience. Steak? No, that doesn't compare. Hamburger? Fuck it, it's all the same. Also, it continually dismays me how some major American food ...

Re: Terrifying Tales of Retail: The Soul-Draining Job of Today!

A story from my sister's one friend: She was working at a coffee shop in Alaska and got a number of strange customers. One day a guy walks in, orders a muffin and pays for it. They give it to him. He sets it on the counter, shouts "Muffins are for smashing!", and brings his fist down on i...

Re: Noteworthy Achievements in the Field of Sandwich-making

Simple and delicious: creamy peanut butter and dill pickle slices. No need to add anything else. The pickles must be crisp. That cannot be stressed enough. I recommend buying whole dill pickles from a reputable brand and slicing them manually for optimal crispness. If you really like pickles you mig...

Re: Carrying Guns

Although, there's one thing I don't understand about your arguments. If people are so bad that they can't be trusted to not go on shooting rampages, how are they so good that they'll come to a strangers rescue? I'm not particularly involved in this argument, but this is such a ridiculous trap quest...
