  • posted a message on The "Ultimate Meal"
    Assuming I get condiments?

    -3 slices each of turkey, ham, roast beef, bacon, and provolone cheese
    -Ketchup, mustard, and mayo
    -Vanilla milkshake with chocolate sauce on the side
    -Glass of water
    -Small glass of root beer
    -Small glass of fresh lemonade
    -Bowl of broccoli and cheese soup

    The meal itself would be a sandwich and soup, with the milkshake providing dairy and sugar. I generally get multiple small drinks when I can afford to (like at a cafeteria), so that's what those are for. The lemonade is so I don't get scurvy :p

    Wow, hearing about this sort of thing, I'm glad that my local store is Cape Fear Games...

    Quote from sirpsychosexy
    Oh no, you caught me spelling something wrong (in this case because it's still a word so spell check missed it). Shucks. And to answer your question, yes. They are much worse. People sometimes make small mistakes that really don't matter at all. It's the ones who point them out that are the dick heads. No one likes condescending, douchey behavior.

    To be fair, his pun was hilarious.

    Also, I'd rather spend time with what you call condescending douches and actually have my grammar improved by them, instead of posting something that makes me look uneducated.

    Just because it's the "dick heads" who point it out doesn't mean that no one else cares. We do. People who consistently butcher grammar on the internet do look like idiots.

  • posted a message on Sleeves Suggestion Other Than Matte Ultra Pro
    Well, that "stange matte finish" on the front of the sleeves is intentional, and is in fact the Pro-matte's selling point. I gets rid of reflections off the card.

    In any case, I'd say to go with KMC Supers. The darker colors aren't see-through enough for you to see flip cards, and they don't break.

    I wouldn't recommend Dragon Shields, because they get covered in this grey-black gunk extremely quickly, and it makes them stick together.

  • posted a message on If Santa were real...
    If Santa was real, he would probably be leveraging his omniscience in the intelligence business.

    That's probably be why none of the governments go after him: if they do, he sells secrets to everyone else Wink

    Santa probably made a worldwide offer they can't refuse. It's not like they could catch someone who so easily breaks the laws of physics.

  • posted a message on Disney's Wreck-It Ralph
    I really enjoyed the movie. Probably the best new film I've seen all year.

    Quote from draftguy2
    It was a great movie, The only hard parts I found that streched my disbealf was that a) an arcade stayed in bussness for 30 years and b) they still used quarters instead of homemade tolkens.

    My hometown has two arcades just like that. Only one of them uses tokens.

  • posted a message on For people that have top 8'ed or won a GPT etc..
    For me, it's a combination of budget issues and not being able to even travel to wherever these bigger tournaments are. I'm a poor college student who relies entirely on public transportation to get around, and none of my other friends express an interest in carpooling, so... Slant

    I feel like Exiled Boggart might apply here. I find him adorable, in a "look at the poor little guy!" kind of way.

  • posted a message on FnM How seriously do you take it?
    My store has an odd duality in that it has a ton of higher-level players, while simultaneously having a ton of more casual people. This has an effect of slowly increasing the general skill level and "seriousness" of the FNM as time goes on. I personally take the FNMs fairly seriously, because it's generally a once-a-month thing I get to do.

    We do free modern tournaments that I am much more casual at, though.

    Needs some apostle's blessing and/or mental misstep in there to not autolose to vapor snag. I'm currently playing a U/G version of the deck and they are lifesavers.

  • posted a message on Is Paper Modern a DOA Format?
    Quote from CorrodedTemplar

    Such a variety really that if I showed up with a tier 1 netdeck, it'd probably go 2-2 after getting trounced by rogue decks it was never designed to face.

    My store does free modern tournaments for store credit, and half the time we also get some players bringing standard decks because "hey, free tournament."

    In any case, as a B/W tokens player, the proliferance of ratchet bomb in the standard meta's sideboards makes matches with them a nightmare XD

    Sorry to bug, but do you think you could put that in a spoiler tag, Lantern? The bracket made my screen explode.
