    Someone mentioned Chris Benoit and it led me to look up the eventual fates of a few wrestlers I'd heard of. What happened to them was wheelchairs and chronic health issues, mostly.

    Sorry, had someone sitting with me here.

    Benoit was...bad. To put it bluntly. Excessive head trauma (some attribute it to the flying headbutts he was known for as well as other things). From what I understand, at the time of his death they studied his brain and found it to be in something of the range of someone about double his age I believe. It really caused a lot of change in wrestling after what happened (no more chair shots to the head, banning of certain dangerous moves with a penchant for neck/head impacts). The only move from that time still in use today is the Tombstone piledriver which is only used by two people in WWE, The Undertaker and on occasion Kane will pull it out.

    Yeah I assume this is why Punk wasnt allowed to use the Pepsi Plunge as his finisher (top rope pedigree) when he joined up.

    I always find the Benoit story to be tragic in that no one has vocally used it as a warning of the danger of head impacts. Its just that he is a monster and can never be spoken of again.

    Oh shit

    I know who that is

    From one of my brief periods of wrestling knowledge

    That is sad : (

    That and Punk's knee was pretty messed up from it's use back in RoH. It's one of the reasons he had to undergo surgery for it last year.

    was there a lady to impress or did you just feel like a workout?

    I needed groceries and I can't drive anymore because I can't see.

    And I had a lot of groceries to catch up on since this was the first nice day in a few days.

    In retrospect I probably should have done it in two trips.

    My beagle does this like clockwork. 5:30am every morning she'll move from the foot of the bed, laying behind my wife's legs and paw at the blanket until I lift it up for her to get under. Then she moves down, circles a few times then curls up normally in front of or behind my knees depending on how I'm sleeping.

    Oh shit I made the most delicious and unhealthy rice and beans ever last night.

    Seasoned up real nice... made some bacon to crumble up in there and then I chopped up some smoked sausage, fried it in the bacon grease and mixed it in.

    It's so god damn good.

    i was thinking about this and logically

    if you ask a girl out and it turns out shes gay thats the best possible negative outcome because it doesnt imply rejection

    This is your (all of youse) daily reminder to purchase and play Shadowrun Returns: Dragonfall as soon as possible.

    It is a terrific RPG with some very good character writing and - pleasingly - a strong sense of atmosphere. I don't often feel afraid in a game where I control little mans from an isometric point of view, but I did here.

    Is the new Shadowrun game like the oldschool DnD games (PS:T, BG, etc.) with the semi-real time combat and all that jazz?

    Fully turn based tactics.

    No, it's turn-based tactical combat, like the old Fallout games, Jagged Alliance, or XCOM.

    My dachshund mix is kind of like this.

    He likes to sit in his circle bed out in the living room, bundled up in blankets and glowering at drunk undergrad passers by.

    Somewhere between 3 and 5 am, he trots into the bedroom and I'll let up the covers so he can fall asleep at my feet.

    I only ever saw ads for the 2007 game!

    And the promo poster for the DLC to Shadowrun Returns looks like a bunch of similar fps characters standing around, waiting for you to select one of them!
