  1. Story Monday January 23, 2017

    And since I have an old fashioned answering machine on my landline I don't even consider it important enough to answer unless they leave a message.
  2. Fifteen Years of EGS

    My sister is doing well, she's a lot happier than she was when she was in denial about her actual gender and trying to live as something she's not. And I really wish more people had accepting parents.
  3. Fifteen Years of EGS

    Actually while that didn't exactly happen in my family my father's reaction to finding out his eldest child is actually female, rather than male as assigned at birth, after not seeing said child for a couple of years during which she had been on hormones and grown 'huge tracts of land', was minimal. Though I suppose it's possible that he either had a reaction that he didn't show and/or had a subconscious idea of this already. I know both my spawn and I had known subconsciously for some time before the reveal. It's also somewhat different than what happened with Elliot, as that was over a much shorter time frame.

    Heh, that reminds me of the time my mom asked what cat treats are made of and I answered without thinking: Kitty Crack
  5. More Speculation.

    Adopting is actually a rather difficult process. How difficult depends on where you live and how much you're willing to spend. I've not adopted myself, but I know (online) a woman who has one IVF daughter and one adopted daughter, so clearly the two are not mutually exclusive.

    It depends on the specific variant of linux. I'm using mint and finding it very easy. The reason I'm using linux is this computer was a gift from someone who only uses linux and I saw no reason to change the OS.
  7. Story for Friday, September 30, 2016

    Which won't be a problem for me because I never hear that song.
  8. EGS Strip Slaying

    Yeah, we reacted much the same way when they spoke of moving to Canada if the healthcare thing passed.

    Not exactly true, each person has a length beyond which their hair will not grow, though it is easy enough to cut it shorter.
  10. Story, Wednesday August 31, 2016

    My understanding is that it depended, and still does, largely on where exactly in the US one is. The country is a large and not at all homogenous place. In many places it would have been mostly a non issue.
  11. Story Monday August 29, 2016

    Unless specified otherwise I'm just assuming that they're identical cousins.
  12. Story Thursday June 2, 2016

    Dan and I have very similar attitudes towards pronouns. Biggest difference is I go with she/her and would prefer to go with a gender neutral option if there was one I actually liked.
  13. STORY: Wednesday, May 25, 2016

    Testing it with a fireball: Bad idea. Testing it with one of Ellen's transformation beams? That could work, if the resistance fails there's no harm done. Of course it wouldn't be a perfect test as many fireballs are large enough that they hit an area rather than just single target.
  14. Words of Wisdom

    I don't need to get the last word in on in an argument. Especially on the internet. (Repeat until I get it through my thick skull)
  15. EGS Strip Slaying

    Bwa ha ha ha. Do you read Skin Horse? Because this reminds me of some stuff that happened in that excellent webcomic.
  16. STORY: Monday, May 16, 2016

    Just because something sounds impossible on the surface doesn't mean that it's actually impossible. Imagine, if you would, a being with several conscious minds and one unconscious mind. Is it one or many? I'd say both. A team is a group that, ideally, acts together as one. This post brought to you by someone who is working on a setting that includes a machine intelligence that creates and absorbs personalities without apparent rhyme or reason.
  17. NP: Monday, May 23, 2016

    I think the Internet put the argument clinic out of business.
  18. NP: Monday, May 16, 2016

    I don't know what specific game Dan had in mind (I don't play shooters, and rarely bother with first or third person games because they often make me nauseous) but I'm certain there are at least a few where the sentiment applies.

    In this comic http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2174 it's mentioned that ancients/immortals have different agreements on each side of the world. Agreements can be changed, and in that situation I think it likely that it would be.
  20. Story Comic for 2016 April 25th

    I'd say that some people are more strongly gendered than others. I'd bet the Elliot was never strongly gendered, which made adapting to his magic easier than it would have been if he were.
  21. Story: Wednesday, April 20, 2016

    I tend to think of Pandora as Chaotic Bored. A bad guy just needs to succeed once to cause harm, the good guys have to succeed every time in stopping them. Furthermore good guys are often hampered by morals, which can make stopping the bad guys harder. Of course a good guy without morals is just a bad guy with good PR, so...
  22. More Speculation.

    Or that the addition of a bit of personal risk just makes the whole thing more fun. Pandora's main purpose is to ease her boredom, and I'd imagine that adding elements of personal risk as well as elements of uncertainty can help with this.

    I do enjoy drinking on occasion, and I can have plenty of fun doing things like reading a book or playing video games. I don't drink much these days because I don't have much of an entertainment budget (Finally had enough today to go see a movie in theater that I've been wanting to see for months.) and spending $20 on books or games is generally more fun than spending the same amount on booze. Also if I want to forget my troubles I find losing myself in a good book works better than booze, which is good because it's also healthier. I've known people who can drink responsibly, and some who can't. With the latter including a former sister in law who was a bad drunk. (Though I believe other drugs were involved, I didn't know her very well because she was someone better avoided.) I've also got an uncle who can go from friendly drunk to mean drunk very quickly.
  24. NP, Monday April 4, 2016

    Yeah, you certainly don't need to go out and drink. I feel sorry for anyone who thinks it's a need rather than something some people enjoy. I also had a WTF moment when I learned that the mental health ward at a nearby hospital doesn't have hand sanitiser because some people were so desperate for alcohol that they were drinking the stuff. I can't help but feel sorry for people who are that far gone.
  25. NP, Monday April 4, 2016

    Alcohol does make me more social, but that's more of a removing the inhibitions that make it difficult for me to be social than actually improving my interpersonal skills. And there's a limited window between 'enough to relax my social anxiety' and 'so much I start acting like an idiot.' (Though from what people tell me I'm at least an entertaining idiot) The sad thing is that drinking is all too often portrayed as either this awesome thing that makes you more social and fun, or this horrible thing that either turns you into an arsehole and has no redeeming features. The truth is, as so many truths are, somewhere in the middle.
