    Are altered cards tournament-playable? I thought altering a card made it no longer tournament playable.

    It has to be recognizable as the original card from across the table, and it has to leave enough detail that it is obviously the correct card underneath the paint. In other words, don't try to cheat or confuse your opponent.

    It's ultimately a judgment call on the part of the tournament organizer and judge, but these would be tournament playable.

    Plus side, she's sat next to Aston Villa, who are flying back from an exhibition match against Houston I guess? Combination starstruck and sat next to hot 20yr olds has mitigated the disaster

    which is good because she had a complete meltdown in re: how much of a failure she is and how nothing ever goes right because she's so forgetful and careless about critical things and how she's a complete disappointment to us.

    There's one very prolific Magic card artist who will alter his own cards and put penises on them.

    Big barbarian dude wielding an axe? Now he's a big barbarian dude with a penis the size of his torso jutting out from his crotch. And maybe the axe is a penis-axe now too.

    there is strong evidence to suggest that she is in fact forgetful and careless about critical things, as demonstrated by last week's drama:

    she discovered with only 5 days left to the deadline that the amount of money she owed for her freshman year of college, after all federal assistance and scholarships, was actually the amount she owed for the fall semester of her freshman year.


    You can tell because on the financial part of the website, beside the total, it says "total fall sem.".

    But it did not occur to her to even consider it until she was talking with a loan officer looking for funding and he asked her if that amount was for the whole year or not.

    We'd rather have more space in this small apartment than keep this old couch.

    It's kind of expensive to dispose of unless we throw it away in pieces.

    she's the oldest, right

    do you guys feel like you sheltered her, maybe?

    i know when i went off to college i was blown away by how people were unprepared for a lot of rly basic life tasks and responsibilities and then it was really contextualized when their parents would come visit

    it seems like when you talk about the boys it is with more of a laissez-faire tone which might be the results of learning from the first

    @spool32‌

    A story for your daughter to make her feel better.

    So I was at the airport early in the morning to fly back from Prague. This was after 2 weeks of staying with a friend in Prague and having a good time. I stayed in this hotel though the night before I left because it was easier to get to the airport.

    I get to the airport, check in and go through customs.

    I am sitting about 30 minutes before my flight and realize my passport was missing.

    I had left it at customs. I straight up left it on the counter and walked away.

    I got lucky and the official grabbed it.

    But I basically almost got myself stuck in an Eastern European airport because I was too non-functional in the morning.

    It's hard to know. Perhaps we did? I worry that we did. We get the benefit of her experiences to bring to bear with the other two, that's for certain. But also they get the benefit of observing her mistakes. Like, neither of them will ever forget something so obvious because "remember when big sister forgot her suitcase?? derpa-derp lol"
