Not long ago, I screwed up a thread. This one, specifically.
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/994923/didnt-read-the-th...

Don't bother reading it.

In so doing, I incurred the wrath/ridicule of several sharp-witted individuals, earned not a single comment from the OP (who had abandoned the thread well before then), and also got tipped 0.05 GG.

Now I feel guilty having it.

Therefore, I offer it to THE ONE WHO EARNS THE MOST THUMBS BY.. oh, let's say FRIDAY AT MIDNIGHT, along with any GG that I find on the street before then.

The rules are simple. Take one iota from the previous thread, and spin off on some tangent. Thumb a post if you felt the need to reply to it directly. Bonus points at my discretion if someone actually does reply directly.

Let's begin with an example in actual conversation with my in-laws...

"Speaking of spinning off, I remember when I got my car stuck in the parking lot at work, and three guys were helping me push it out, but the wheels would stop spinning because of the stupid Automatic Traction System. I kept pushing the OFF button, but didn't realize that you have to hold it for like five seconds before the car concedes that you reeeeally want that feature off.

It was so embarrassing."

"Speaking of traction, I got the best liver and onions at the restaurant last night. Man, I love liver and onions, but when the bill came, my portion of the bill was $70, and I couldn't figure out how I managed to spend so much more than Steve and Jack and couldn't in good conscience split the bill equally. I'm almost glad that Alec is in traction so he wouldn't make fun of my expensive liver and onions!"

Is this where I post requests for art?
I am making a game and wanted to know if anyone could do some art for free. I can't pay anything because I am putting it up on kickstarter and won't know if it will fly. It will only be for experience, but hey a portfolio piece is something right? Please post here if you can help me make my millions.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

How is any of this related to board games?

One of my friends referenced that he had received a rusty trombone recently, but I did not think brass could rust and doubted the accuracy of his story. I am guessing that the lever arm is stuck due to prolonged lack of use and wondered if anyone had any suggestions for a fix. Thanks!

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

I went into my FLGS and I couldn't believe the prices! Where do they get off charging MSRP for all the board games I like!?! I will only shop online now.

Speaking about how differently some people think, my oldest son got married and bought a house but my youngest son bought a house THEN got married. How different can two kids be?

What's the difference between Ameritrash and Eurogames? And does it matter because one is clearly better than the other? Which of course is why all the women responding to this thread are wrong. It's not Analysis Paralysis, I'm just smarter than you.
