Re: Games you can't remember the title of.

Hmm, the template doesn't really fit what I'm looking for all too well, but I'll fill it out and put extra information afterward. Background : It's one of those browser-based MMOs. No graphics except for the galaxy map showing different planets. I played the game a few years ago, but I think it'd be...

Well fuck. I was already in a shitty mood today, why did I have to go and make things worse.

Re: MS Paint Adventures thread

Where does the phrase "complacency of the learned" come from? I swear I've heard it somewhere. It was brought up when Rose was first introduced. If you mean outside the comic I'm not aware its a reference. Specifically, Complacency of the Learned is the name of Rose's shitty wizard fanfic.
