    Making someone self-conscious about laughing is one of the cruelest things you can do to them, imo, and I always try to shut it down hard when I see it.

    I was awarded the "Best Laugh" award at my High School graduation awards. I hated getting that award.

    I got the same award as a quasi-joke from my previous job. I was... better with it.

    Seriously, when you have a laugh that you can hear all the way across the building, you either live with it or hate yourself. I've done both, don't recommend.

    (Recently someone said my laugh is comparable to Neil Degrasse Tyson.)

    You know what's the best thing about being a crazy person?

    Outside of, like, my immediate family, no one asks me how my day-to-day is going. No one asks me about work, no one asks me what I do for a living.

    I was just thinking again about my nephew's birthday party. Like my brother, my mom, my dad, my sister-in-law, they'll all ask how my programs etc. are going, how I'm feeling, all that good stuff.

    But relatives beyond that? Don't even know HOW to talk to me, it's great.

    Or when people who have just met me ask what I do, I get to be creative: author, troubadour, vagabond, highwayman, independently wealthy, cowboy-astronaut-millionaire ...

    It is like making someone self conscious about their sneezes.

    Not everybody can have adorable sneezes.

    I feel bad, but the way my wife sneezes bugs the shit out of me. I don't know why, it just unnerves me.

    also my brother did this half sneeze thing where he'd like swallow it. So seeing a shock article about stifling sneezes being possibly deadly was VALIDATION!

    My husband sneezes in the loudest and most unrestrained way possible

    It's fine if he's at home but is it *extremely* embarrassing in a social context or say in a long plane ride with the lights out where suddenly he sneezes like 10 times and each one of them is essentially him yelling ACHOOO and people turn their heads to look and it's just mortifying

    Aersien

    I think the longer you're married to someone you find the stupidest things to be bugged by. Not to say your complaint is dumb, but like I know mine about my wife's things are borderline chandler bing level.

    Aside from fingernail flicking, which she does on purpose.

    porp opens the microwave 1 second before it's done because she can't stand the beep sound

    then instead of like, shutting the door and turning the timer off, she just leaves it there

    forever

    what's worse is HER ENTIRE FUCKING FAMILY DOES THIS

    A good chunk of my time in WoW was spent on dialup so I have a very social-connection with the game since raiding was out of the question for me in vanilla. The exception was the 20-person raid content. I was able to do that.

    The height of my fun was during WotLK. I dropped out though, and when I came back for Cataclysm lots of people I was friends with left and weren't back, so I jumped to another server for Cataclysm, and I pretty much spent the next couple expansions with very, VERY loose social connections. The RP stuff maybe sorta helped in that regard but the reality is a lot of people who RP aren't exactly... great people outside of it. A lot of drama. A shocking amount of political hate.

    So I quit at the end of Warlords! And I've been happier ever since.

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.
    American politics isn't 4D chess, it's just if you give a shit about other people or not.

    Man I use to basically run a chunk of the RP community on Silver Hand. I ran one of the boards, it died thankfully, and also was big in organizing stuff on the forums. My guild was an IC guild chat too but they were pretty chill. We had an OOC one as well.

    I wanna say it's much easier with mouse and keyboard. Which also brings me to, why are you playing with a controller?

    I tried switching to the KBAM for basebuilding and it didn't seem all that much easier? The problem is that you can't zoom out properly so it's hard to see the overall placement of things. Are there controls for moving the item closer or further away? That would solve most of my issues, I think. Well, aside from the semi-arbitrary rules for where you can put stuff.

    I'm not sure why I play with a controller? I guess because I used a controller when I played in VR so I just automatically did that when I started this playthrough. I'd probably have an easier time with certain things (like grabbing those fucking fish) if I used KBAM so maybe I'll try switching next time I play.

    Top WoW period for me was Wrath of the Lich King, but Legion is pretty good the odd time I play it anymore

    Vanilla is when I enjoyed the game the most, the world was big, level 60 took real time to hit, everything had a certain level of craftsmanship to it and while it felt epic it was also hard.

    BC is when I enjoyed the people the most but kinda hated the game. I ran my own guild and we were always 1-2 good regulars away from really doing content (only killed 2 bosses each in either SSC or TK) and we merged into another guild I had ties with around the time Black Temple came out. That ended up being a mistake.

    WotlK I never saw the end game for really because life was getting in the way but I liked the content a lot more then BC and I was in a good guild that I enjoyed my limited raiding with.

    Cataclysm I hit max level but just couldnt do it anymore.

    I haven't played it since Wrath, but I think WoW's basic design carries too much phylogeny from Everquest and DikuMUD. Where WoW succeeds, it succeeds despite it's ancestry.

    For example, the history of WoW has been to make leveling less onerous over time. If Blizzard feels the need to continually make leveling faster, the obvious question to ask there is, "why have leveling at all?"

    Well, because that's just what multiplayer RPGs do. It's a genre convention.

    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.

    I don't know if Friends started it, but Ross really embodies the "straight man, but also the worst fucking person on the planet to be friends with" archetype.

    I still feel self-conscious thanking people for follows and donations and subs and stuff. Not because I don't legit appreciate it, but because it's such a streamer cliche and I don't want it to become a thing where someone subscribes or donates and I just offhandedly say thanks. So I try to say something, like, unique and/or personal, and I kind of stumble over my words and it just comes out awkward.

    Obviously this is something I need to get a handle on soon.
