    Did Norm ever get his money back from his bitcoin purchase?

    Pretty sure he did, but only after massive fees both buying and selling

    Pretty sure he still has the bitcoin, during the video he wasn't able to cash out from the atm because he didn't include a small reward on the transaction,so that made his transfer of the bitcoin to the atm company take longer then they had in Austin.

    Last i heard of it from Will on one of his spelunky streams when he was asked is that Norm was just going to hold onto it for now, and that he also hadn't got the $405 from Norm yet.

    Random question: if I used next-day shipping and my order shipped from Newegg this afternoon would that mean I should expect it to arrive tomorrow?

    Or would it be Wednesday?

    I've never killed soluflain in BG2. it seems like doing so would cause very, very bad things to happen. do you have to wipe out the entire city or something? maybe I should give it a try

    soluflain? I can't say I recall who/what that is

    he's the main drow in the underdark who gives you the fake fake eggs

    Oh, then yeah. Killing any of the drow in the city makes them all go hostile iirc

    It's quite the bloodbath. Also very lethal, proceed with caution.

    so what I'm hearing is that twitter "upgrades" in the same way that youtube "upgrades"

    See, it was simple and served its function well enough, and they were gonna leave it be, but then they realized that it's a social media thing and they hadn't fucked with the layout for no reason for a while, so...

    Something like 13:00 in. or abouts there.

    They do mock interviews for a bit though so you'll have to go further for the actual match.

    It doesn't really seem all that odd or horrific

    Best case scenario it might be a place to discuss etymology and suchlike

    Worst case scenario people make bigoted comments in controversial words

    In either case, it is spectacularly easy to ignore

    The best thing about Will Smith's Spelunky streams is that he has a custom avatar and Spelunky skin, turning bombs into the Testicles logo, and making the Spelunker with the beard have red hair and beard like Will. Also when he says stupid stuff and you can hear his wife laughing at him from the other room. And that he chats with the viewers pretty frequently.

    The worst thing is that he seems pretty awful at the game.

    Nah, more likely the weapon Jars is using (Mace of Disruption, maybe?) has a chance to instakill an undead if it fails its save. Which is pretty rare for a high-level monster like Kangaxx to fail but it does happen.

    kangaxx seems to have pretty bad saves because the improved mace of disruption one shots him without fail

    The "The Bill Of Rights" is libertarian, it tells the government what they can't do and what the people can do. Small government, low or no taxes and freedom of thought and word. Anything less is socialism and tyranny. We are not a democracy , we are "Democratic Republic." We control congress and the presidency with our vote at our state elections. Congress is voted for locally and not in Washington, once there, they do what is in their conscience, that conscience must be ideologically constitution oriented. To control Congress, we must vote for believers in the constitution, any other perverse motivation is unacceptable. Vote freedom and our social and economic woes would soon disappear.

    Streamers:

    -Good at the game
    -Funny
    -Not a racist/sexist piece of human garbage.

    Pick two.

    basically the whole movie is Forest doing exactly what he's told by one authority figure or another and falling ass-backwards into fame and fortune, while Jenny is molested as a child, runs away from home, and is shit on by life and society at every turn until she eventually dies. The movie ends up coming across as saying "keep your head down and do what you're told, and you can have anything you want. Stick your neck out, fight to assert your worth as an individual, and actively work to improve your lot in life, and you can go fuck yourself." The idea that Forest manages to succeed despite his mental handicaps is undercut by how tragically Jenny has the life slowly beaten out of her for no sensible reason
