This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

When the Pundit killed an Old Woman
« on: October 29, 2006, 12:30:01 PM »
Its funny, how in Computerese an "upgrade" usually means "a more problematic, more space-occupying, less well-tested version of what you already have".  Its been like that with computer programs I've "updated" and it is usually like that with online Forum systems. I can't count how many have had massive issues when they try to upgrade to the newer model.
 
Well, I feel like someone must have upgraded my brain, because writing is a definite impossibility for me today. I stayed up till six a.m. last night, between the gaming and watching of Monty Python episodes and the cheap porn.
 
Today even the yerba mate is only just giving me this kind of fuzzy awakeness, not really here, not really able to formulate any coherent thoughts, but just barely able to function now, after literally dragging myself out of bed an hour and a half too early because of the sound of drilling in the apartment next door.

A gay couple have just moved into that apartment, at least I'm fairly sure its a gay couple. Its two guys and only one bedroom. They're both some kind of government employees.  I had learnt, to my surprise (from an ex-girlfriend), that where I live ("El Cordon") is the closest thing that Montevideo has to a "gay" neighbourhood, based on there being a number of gay-themed bars to the south of where my apartment is.
 
Well, bully for them. I don't give a fuck, I'm mostly concerned that the screaming and playing of loud music in the late hours of the morning will drive them off or get them mad. I'm fairly certain that its what killed the little old lady who lived there before the gay couple. She was a nice little old lady; with a liking for talking about her grandkids and her love of the local ultra right-wing party.
 
And then I killed her. Not intentionally, but having all night gaming sessions four nights a week and a general "stay up till 4 or 5 am playing loud music and occasionally screaming for no good reason" attitude the rest of the nights will pretty well kill an old person living next door. It was inevitable.  Even with the incredibly thick relatively sound-proof walls this building has.
 
So lets hope the gay couple are fans of late nights.

Well, at least "upgrade" doesn't mean "turned into a cyberman" yet.

But give some people time......
RPGPundit is a fucking fascist asshole and a hypocritial megadouche.

That's nothing, I once had someone's stereo confiscated during their wedding reception.  It's their bloody fault for trying to be clever and renting a huge apartment for a week just to have the party in and then playing loud music every night leading up to the reception.

Night 1 : Mr. Analytical goes and knocks on their door.
Night 2 : Mr. Analytical calls noise patrol.
Night 3 : Noise Patrol threatens to take action if the noise doesn't stop.
Night 4 : Noise Patrol give people a written warning
Night 5 : Noise Patrol arrive with a warrant and confiscate all sound equipment.  Mr. Analytical sleeps easy in his bed.

Hey, I've repeatedly said that I wish I wasn't utterly biologically heterosexual. If I felt attracted to the male form in the least I'd be gaying it up faster than you could say "queer eye".

Unfortunately, I'm attracted to women; which has been largely a cause of intense suffering and regret any time my hormones have made me temporarily insane enough to believe that I should try to have a "romance". You know, those times when I've been utterly fooled into thinking that the emotional reward of long-term involvement with a woman is worth the price to my freedom, sanity, and wallet.

Ah well, I'll just have to settle for a shitload of meaningless sex.

Meanwhile, if you want the conclusion to this thread's little story, look at today's thread, "The Truth, with Fixins".
