[Chat] is RUINED FOREVER?! UTTERLY DESTROYED?! Slightly Inconvenient? OWNED?!

So a new patch of EU4 (1.29, full of Manchu goodness) just came out and, in part because they're upgrading to a 64-bit version, there are teething problems. Several of my preferred mods are broken, for example.

What do I see? A video "asking" if 1.29 is THE WORST PATCH EVER?

Sigh. Personally I'm tired of everyone taking the slightest misstep any one particular thing does and decrees it to be catastrophic. See also: Star Wars reactions, which I shan't be posting.

But instead of that, some positivity. I managed to get the True Heir of Timur achievement recently, that was neat, it's pretty hard. Not ready for Eat Your Greens tho.

    Because I spent a long time writing it and posted immediately before the last [chat] closed, I’m bringing hence a revival of my last effort poast.


    Now that the vacation is over and was really just absolutely splendid, I can push past the frustration and now recount the tale of our benighted arrival unto the greater Capitol area.

    - five days before arrival, the host of our AirB&B has to cancel our reservation because suddenly a pipe burst in the road outside the house and everything was flooded
    - we find a new place that seems good, but shortly after our arrival it turns out to be very bad
    - half the lights are out
    - the smoke alarm keeps going off for no reason, and then falls off the ceiling.
    - there’s a giant painting of clowns in the living room. Giant.
    - the stairway is broken and listing towards the open room below
    - there’s no lights working on the stairwell or in the bedrooms
    - the hot tub it claimed to have did not exist
    - we were originally given the keys to someone’s else’s house, which I only found out after entering said equivocal home.
    - as the capstone to this shitshow, we opened the kitchen cabinets to serve dinner, and a bevy of roaches scurried out everywhere
    - we call AirB&B to fix it, and the home owners try to say that we did all of that on purpose and brought the roaches with us. Or that we’re lying. We were not. We had photos.
    - We had to get a hotel room at 1 am. AirB&B eventually gives us a full refund plus $200 credit towards another rental.

    All of this happened over the course of two hours

    I discovered my son has an imaginary friend.

    That's not ____, that's Gao! My son says.

    You see, he kept saying the above line. Then we would ask "what's Gao?" To which he would laugh and repeat "what's Gao?" And then laugh more.

    Then he started saying things like "I didn't do that, that was Gao did that!"

    So we decided to ask him who Gao was instead of what. We were informed Gao is a pig. Then we asked what Gao looked like and we were told he is a purple pig who rides a horse.

    He started saying Bao did something today and I asked if Bao was Gao's brother.

    I was informed that he was but he did not ride a horse.

    The difficult part is setting it all up right then and there instead of far ahead of time, but that can probably be done with enough cash.

    This is a fallacy. He didn't mean that, in order to get two chicks at the same time you'd have to pay them $500k apiece. Just that, two chicks would be likely to do a guy who had a million bucks. Even if we're talking high-end escort money, that's like $10k per night. So 60 chicks would only set you back about $600k.

    It’s perfectly okay. The weekend was a whirlwind of juggling schedules and minor disasters. I definitely plan on coming back at some point because I had so much fun (possibly in cooler weather), and we should do stuff then <3

    Or maybe come to PAX South?
