Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

How come old [CHAT]s are always in black & white?

    OK. Fine. I'm a bigot. That's fine. I don't really care. Thanatos and I are pretty firm on this feeling. Walk a mile in my shoes etc.

    yes you both make broad statements based on personal experience and apply it to everyone

    very strongly and at least he will argue forever with anyone debating him

    but hey. as long as you don't mind us calling you both bigots there is no real argument to have!

    How long are smoke breaks, usually? Would there be any benefit to just pretending to be a smoker?

    the new chili peppers' cd, coming out tuesday, is fucking great. different sounding, a lot of the songs are kinda dancy, very catchy, but really really fucking good. if you ever liked them, check it out.

    I will be making similar posts to this again I'm sure, especially once I officially have it :D

    now, laying down. later chat.

    A coworker of mine did an excel sheet once of all the extra time smokers take in breaks and calculated it over the past year, turned it into the director, and said that they owed him that much Annual leave.

    Didn't work. But he made his point.

    Did anything change?

    Oh an email reminder was sent out about the amount of break time allowed. It didn't change anything.

    That's such bs.

    To be honest I would hate to be the boss who took away all the smoke breaks, I mean you would find dead cats on your desk after lunch and shit

    Your healthcare costs would be reduced though!

    Wait has anyone invented a harmless cigarette yet?

    Something that you physically light but all you inhale is water vapour (no, nicotine either).

    Wait.. I am detecting problems with this already.

    Unless you're lighting a cigarette made of hydrogen. This would be very dangerous.

    They exist. Electronic cigarettes. No one uses them. I am not a smoker so I couldn't tell you why.

    Almost everyone who doesn't smoke here uses snus. So like, I'm fucking up my lungs instead of my mouth.

    Mine are 4:30 - 5:00 a piece, 3-5 times a day.

    5 minutes or so

    5 minutes + the walk outside... usually just a couple minutes of relax time is enough to get me through quite a bit more of a boring job.

    Nah I know about those.

    But you don't physically light them, you just turn them on and they look lame.

    I'm thinking of something with which you could 100% mimic the badassness (supposed) of looking like you're smoking but without any of the carcinogens or addictive substanes whatsoever.

    If you could give me a stick I could put in my mouth, light and suck things out of I'd do that instead of smoking. It's the whole ritual not just the nicotine.

    Hmm, I haven't really gotten anywhere yet where it's required for that, but I'm just on the first major boss.

    He is a dumb, why is everything else in that game extraordinarily easy on the hardest difficulty thus far, but the boss is all like, have some instead death grenades, everywhere.

    My mom hasn't smoked since 1983 but she said even to this day sometimes she'll pour a cup of coffee and reach into her purse for a cigarette.

    I haven't gotten that far yet

    but I'm at a place where it seems like my only options are to break through some back walls or to charge into a wide, open room full of guys

    Because the numbers for mb/s are bigger than the same numbers in Mb/s, and most people don't know the significance of the capitalization.

    Highlander 2 is awful but apparently there is a version that has been edited to be almost acceptable.

    But I like it just because it is awful and has Sean Connery in it.

    I just watched it a few months ago for the first time. Modern kung fu movies ruined it for me. The sword fighting is doughy white guys stumbling through the motions, not even Connery could save it for me. Also the idea of the highlander is really cool and I felt a little jilted that they don't really explore that at all.

  • AbdhyiusAbdhyius Registered User regular
    Maybe I should reserve smoking for when it's fucking magical and not just whenever.

    Actually, yeah. I think I'll do that.
