    So how does the puppy bowl work? Are the dogs well trained and actually doing something resembling a competition? Or is it just adorable puppies frolicking for a couple hours? (Not that I would complain :D)

    It's just unstructured puppy play. They have a penalty box in case a puppy is being mean.

    today in history we had one of those simple quizzes where it's like, the left side has five descriptions, the right side has >5 people/places/events. you just fill it in, and they give you a few more answers than you'll use to make it a tiny bit harder to just whittle it down by the process of elimination

    the descriptions (paraphrased):

    portuguese royal who sponsored lots of travel and trade with non-european entities
    fabled female warriors glorified in 16th century literature
    mystical lost land that sank into the sea
    a form of national expansion that leads to iniquity and subordinate classes
    muslim state that fell to ferdinand and isabella in 1492

    the answers (they weren't in the right order on the quiz, obviously):

    henry the navigator
    amazonians
    atlantis
    imperialism
    granada
    tenochtitlan


    you'd be amazed how many people just totally fucked this up. i mean, the only one i can even begin to imagine messing up is not recognizing the word tenochtitlan and thinking maybe it's the name of a portuguese dude? but like... the chapter we read for homework (or were supposed to read!) was all about tenochtitlan. the word was used a dozen times. some people got imperialism wrong! how is that possible!

    This is pre highschool level.

    My one game of Paranoia, I was the only member of the group not in a secret society, so I was the dopey naive guy that everyone used in their schemes.

    Pretty sure one of the best things was there was this annual paranoia larp which was really just a nerdy paranoia themed scavenger hunt at a convention. Anyway, my team had to go get a bunch of people at the convention to sign these petitions, probably something dumb like banning dihydrogen monoxide, and one of the guys that we got to sign it I think knew the guy running it and gave him the heads up that he had signed our petition as Commie M. Traitor.

    Upon returning the signature sheets he glanced over it, chuckled, and we were promptly all down a clone

    My character's role was the quartermaster or something, I could call mandatory equipment checks whenever I wanted.

    The game's not focused on combat, of course, but we had a few brief firefights and I spent the game wishing I could call an equipment check during one of the firefights. Alas, not in character for my totally loyal dope. :(

    Best position was the Happiness Inspector whose job was to make sure everyone was always happy enough, and if not, report such to Friend Computer.

    Yep, some asshole breaks the TV.

    I just got called into the Commissioner's meeting because Emergency! The laptop isn't displaying anything anymoreeee!

    Its battery was dead... some bright spark had plugged the extension cord into itself.

    the local network in this building was brought to its knees for several days a while back because someone in a conference room plugged the provided ethernet cable (to use with old laptops what don't have wireless) back into another network port.

    I think every IT consultant has to deal with that service call once in their careers.

    I'd estimate that when I'm doing network consulting, I see that about once a year.

    I vaguely remember at one point in my game, the power died on a train we were in, and we all gave secret instructions to our GM.

    A new hobby of mine is comparing multiple sources of news, specifically noting which stories are headlining. Drudge report makes this easy!

    For the last couple of days, none of the gun violence related stories have been linked on Drudge, even though they're pretty big everywhere else. Or, if they are, they're deep enough or misdirected enough that I don't see them. Now, they do link a story about a kid getting suspended for bringing a toy gun to school. The anti-gun nuts* are so quaint, aren't they?

    *isn't there a better word for being the opposite of a gun-nut? I'd figure they'd come up with one by now.
