Re: Bored at work. What do you do?

I doodle or play games on my phone, usually.
Then there's the workplace-specific option, which is "reading veterinary surgery manuals" (I work in a cardiophysiology lab).

Re: Religious Zealots

You are more susceptible to believe outrageous claims and reject modern ideas which have been rigorously proven. By that same line, I'd think most theists would argue that atheism is an outrageous claim, and if not, certainly not any better proven or disproven than theism. [As far as your data ther...

Not last night, but I had a dream that I was having a normal life and all this, you know, talking to people, minding my own business, when suddenly, my ex-boyfriend comes into my apartment and it becomes suddenly very clear that he has been stalking me - he knows who I've been talking to, and he's q...

Re: Which is more common: two-handed analog clocks or three?

I have two analog clocks in my room. One has a store-bought movement and is made out of a tax software CD. It technically has three "hands", but the second-hand has been broken off, so it's just a ticking, rotating circle. The other is a small, cheap alarm clock I bought in Italy when I lo...

Re: Awesome Thread (to balance Rant Thread)

My boyfriend broke it off with me a bit ago, so that was kind of sad, but it looks like things are cool (even... gasp... friendly?) between us.
Also, I got a pretty cool guy's number. Is that still an accomplishment if you're female? Either way, kind of awesome. Things are looking up.

Re: I need a Game Recommendation

My favorite part in gaming is, without fail, exploring the in-game world and testing the limits of what I can and cannot do, which means I love open-ended games and sandbox-style stuff, but equally as much, I like to be able to get into the feel that the game provides. One of my favorite things to d...
