When the stars align, It will come, for all of us. But while It doesn't come, heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere's Verkisto, the best person to have around in case It surfaces again in an office bathroom.

Here's what he has to say about himself

Quote:
I was raised by wolverines after my parents abandoned me on Harlan Ellison's doorstep when I was just a few months old. This was before the drop-off law in Nebraska kicked in, and it was the best they could do at the time. Harlan, being the stand-up guy that he is, thusly abandoned me to a rotting cradle in the woods behind his house, but the cradle collapsed, fell into a river, and then floated downstream to where some wild wolverines adopted me and made me one of their own. Jane Goodall then found me and brought me back to Castle Greystoke, where I was slowly readmitted to society. I still snarl on occasion, when I get frustrated, but for the most part, I've adjusted pretty well. I think this also explains my weird snack tendencies.

I should point out that when I sat wolverines, I mean these things:



not these:



For my two lies and a lie, consider these three statements:

1. I was born with a tail.
2. I made a fortune in the big town, my name is on the city limit sign.
3. I once killed a man in Reno just to watch him die.


So here's my first questions.

1. Man, what?!
2. Beware of the red man on the perch.
3. Together we will rule THE WORLD with an orange.
4. Kneel before Zod!

1 - Why did the astronaut's suit inflate when Zod tore the hole in it in Superman II?

2 - Do you believe a man can fly?

3 - Peanuts. Salted or honey roasted?

4 - Is the Dewey decimal system all it's cracked up to be?

5 - Where did the phrase 'cracked up to be' come from?

Verky!

1) Can I call you Verky?

2) Other than Chit-Chat, what do you visit most often at BGG?

3) Are you sure you want the squirrel?

4) Economic times are tough. What are some of the suggestions that you'd like to make for us Chit-Chatters looking to save some money this coming year?

This is such a surprise!* Thanks, MGBM, for thinking of me. I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but thanks, regardless.

Gotcha. While we're at it, the crow flies at midnight.

No cabbages or onions? DANG.

Sorry, I can't. My knees are bad.







*Well, as much of a surprise as is possible, given that I had to write an introduction about myself.

Congrats, sir. Good for you!

And now, I return you to my regularly-scheduled questions:

MasterGeek wrote:

Ok, which type of procedure would you rather have performed on you:

A fecal transplant (fesces from a healthy donor is put through your nose via a tube the goes down into your gastrointestinal area)

or

Pass three kidney stones in one day?

If you found out you were allergic to breathing, what method would you use to ensure your survival?

Who is bacon?


Thank you.

I think it had to do mostly with the fact that Richard Donner not directing it.

Quote:
2 - Do you believe a man can fly?


No, but cats? Definitely:



Quote:
3 - Peanuts. Salted or honey roasted?


Salted, DUH. Those honey roasted things should be ashamed of themselves.

Quote:
4 - Is the Dewey decimal system all it's cracked up to be?


Not really. It's too limiting, and it shows too much how it's rooted in late 18th- and early 19th-Century thinking. The 200s and 610s are woefully incomplete, and far too limiting for modern thought and subjects. The 200s are devoted to world religions, but 200-289 is dedicated to Christianity, while only the 290s pay any attention to the rest of the world. The 610s are supposed to cover all of the medical subjects, but it's not enough space, especially with all the new research going into that field. And don't even get me started on the 300s.

Really, Melvil Dewey created something long lasting and important, but the LC Classification is much more useful and expandable. It's just not nearly as intuitive.

Aren't you glad you asked?

Quote:
5 - Where did the phrase 'cracked up to be' come from?


Probably Shakespeare. He invented a crapload of other phrases and words, so why not that one, too?

Um, GeekLists, game forums, RSP, auctions ... just whatever's on my front page at the time.

It depends. Is it salted or honey roasted?

Buy one of Cory Doctorow's books. Maybe that'll shut him up for a while.

I don't know. I'm not even sure what a Cheeto IS, so I'm leaning toward "no."

Quote:

I'm not really sure. What does "calcuate" mean?

Quote:

This is like trying to determine whether Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull or The Happening is the worst movie. Some things the human mind simply cannot contemplate.

Wait, what?

Quote:

Having allergies MEANS you're allergic to breathing. You've obviously never woken up in the middle of the night during pollen season, unable to breathe save for through your mouth. That's why I have Chap-Stick on my bedside table.

Ahem, some very important questions for you Verky...

1) What completely non-game related activity do you enjoy talking about on BGG?

2) What does this picture make you think of?

 


3) Bacon, Jello, or Pudding? Which one would win in a no-holds-barred cage match?

4) As the official Chit-Chatter of the Day, what advice would you give future victims honorees?

5) Will you keep answering questions if they are posted in this thread tomorrow?

6) Do you sometimes wish you owned a duck?

7) Are there any Chit Chat jokes that you wish would just die?

8) Can we call you Skippy?

9) Should I ask 10 questions, or stop here?

10) What's worse than the Detroit Lions?

Ambush Bug.

Ambush Bug.*

Quote:
Best Neal Stephenson novel?


I've never read anything by him. I know! Can you believe it?

Quote:
Best Stephen King novel?


Hm. My favorite is It, but stylistically, I'd have to go with Pet Sematary. Then again, Cujo and Misery are two nearly perfectly structured novels, and always impress me. Some of his more recent stuff has bordered on the literary, but I find myself less entertained by it. Hearts in Atlantis, though, was an incredible read.

Quote:
Michael Chabon: Great author or jerk with a thesaurus?


I've never read him, either. So I'll go with "jerk with a thesaurus."

Quote:

I think it's Throwing Copper by Live. If not that, then it's Paul's Boutique by the Beastie Boys.







*Seriously. Look him up. It's hard to determine WHAT he is, in the grand scheme of things.

Ahem, some very important questions for you Verky...


So, if I said "Sure, go ahead, call me Verky, I don't mind!", would you stop calling me that?

Quote:
1) What completely non-game related activity do you enjoy talking about on BGG?


Gosh, I don't know. Does "nonsense" count?

Quote:
2) What does this picture make you think of?


Seriously (and sadly), MGBM. It just screams "Portugal!" at me.

Quote:
3) Bacon, Jello, or Pudding? Which one would win in a no-holds-barred cage match?


Bacon, without a doubt. I think the salt content would break down the chemical composition of the other two, and besides, I have a salty tooth, not a sweet tooth.

Quote:
4) As the official Chit-Chatter of the Day, what advice would you give future victims honorees?


If someone asks "Can I call you x?", say yes, 'cause they're going to call you that anyway.

Quote:
5) Will you keep answering questions if they are posted in this thread tomorrow?


Well, I guess we'll just have to wait until tomorrow to find out, won't we?

Yes.

Quote:
6) Do you sometimes wish you owned a duck?


Only around Thanksgiving. I've heard that Turducken is pretty good.

Quote:
7) Are there any Chit Chat jokes that you wish would just die?


Not really, no! Even the Jello threads are amusing to me, if only because quozl proves that one cannot force a meme to happen.

Quote:
8) Can we call you Skippy?


Does it matter if I say no?

Quote:
9) Should I ask 10 questions, or stop here?


Stop here! STOP HERE!

Quote:
10) What's worse than the Detroit Lions?


Ha! From what I understand, NOTHING is worse than the Detroit Lions. I hear even Satan is worried that they'll wind up there.
