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!

You know what's awesome? Post-WWII, war planes were stripped of weapons and sold as surplus.

P-38 Lightning, $1200.
P-51 Mustang, $1500.

Goddamn that would have been rad.

    Pedantic?

    Where? Where?!

    Seriously J not only are you a monumentally umpleasant person when you start uttering the nonsense that passes for philosophy in your mind (shame on whatever institution you graduated in, and shame on your tutors for creating such a monster), but your sense of humor, such as it is, is awful.

    Found it. It was called "The Beast", and built by one John Dodd. It was a 750bhp 27 litre Rolls-Royce Merlin engine in a custom chassis and body.

    He was apparently sued by Rolls-Royce over his use of one of their grilles on the body.

    That's silly of them.

    I believe it was (and this may be apocryphal) his tendency to take it on the Autobahn and blow away the supercars of the day with the thing's 200+ mph top speed, leading to the German Police complaining to Rolls-Royce themselves about "testing their new cars on the Autobahn." Speeds above 200mph being considered anti-social.

    I wrote a First-Order Logic exam question based on the Monty Python bit about scientifically proving someone is a witch.

    I am pleased.

    It's not that impressive, just amusing. Plus, I can't be sure one of my students isn't reading the forums (they are 150 computer nerds, after all), so I won't be posting it here. At least, not before the exam.

    No, I think you're all a bunch of computer nerds. And I think my class if full of computer nerds. So I won't be sharing my exam questions here before the exam. Too risky that my students will see them.

    There should be laws about people making me have potentially life-changing conversations over the phone at 2am when I am so tired that I am partly hallucinating.

    "Do you want me to quit my job, move in with you, and something something about marriage?" is for -after- coffee.

    Especially when the total romantic relationship was a two month span two and a half years ago.

    So does SE++ like to switch thread topics around for shits and giggles?

    The other day I found a techno thread in SE++ and i was all "oh cool nobody in D&D likes techno I think I'll go post in that." I go back today and they're talking about the fucking iPhone. Somebody (or a database burp) changed the iPhone thread name to techno. So then I do a vanity search to see if I can find the techno thread, and it's been renamed "iPhone".

    So is this a technical glitch or just SE++ fucking around?

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
    the "no true scotch, man" fallacy.

    Because that's some lame shit right there. I want to be accepting towards those guys but if they think it's funny to pull the forum equivalent of putting salt in the sugar bowl then fuck them.

    Probably not standard, but it's not all that rare, either. I don't think I would judge the whole subforum on it though.
