How does that work???? Did you have a good twin who posted the news for awhile? Edit: Like that Peter Parker clone thing?


Back in the day, Frans and loonyboi posted the unaccounted for stories (7,893 and 8,638 respectively).

I'd like to point out that this morning's Safety Dance is threadid 150,000. I think that means that Blue has posted more than 150,000 posts on Blues News. That is an incredible achievement, given that all the content is solely posted by Blue.

Congrats, Blue! Thanks for keeping us well informed all these long years.

Edited to add URL.

You are too kind. For the record, blammo's internal accountant tells me there are actually 149,387 stories as of now, 132,856 of which were posted by me.

Water is a very fast renewable resource. And if you live in the city it is collected, treated and reused faster yet. Love the scare tactic of "using too much water", it all gets back out of you and reused through the eco system. Exception is drought area's but most of the population of the US do not live in a drought area. But even those places if it's a city, it is controlled via water management.

No "I'll be writing Seattle for the next few weeks" pun?


Wondering if we will see any movement today.....Vikes made some big decisions yesterday, none of which seems like really good ideas....the curse continues....

Yeah, in your shoes I'd *hate* losing Allen... He's a rare talent, even at his age.

The G-men don't usually dabble in free agency, but our running back situation is uncertain enough that I wouldn't be surprised to see them take a flyer on Ben Tate or Knowshon Moreno.

You made decision to not move to California?

http://tinyurl.com/mmkgl5z


Yes we did. Shockingly, I know all about you and your love for your SoCal weather, so I guess I'll address that part of this.

Among other things, we actually have concerns about the viability of living on the fringe of a giant desert that satisfies the water needs of a huge population by diverting the already way-overstressed Colorado River. I am not very optimistic about the future of your area.

I'll see your link, and raise you one:

Blue, doesn't your wife work at disney interactive?

Formerly. We forewent the opportunity to relocate with her job to Glendale. I'd be lying if I said one of our concerns about that was something like what happened in this story.

Edit: Actually, MrsBlue corrects me that she never worked at Disney Intertactive, but rather at Disney Worldwide Publishing. The reasoning for not moving stands.

Egg creams. Oo la la. Aren't we hoity toity today. I have no idea what egg creams are but it sounds like something Thurston and Lovey would be sipping.

Hardly.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_cream

An egg cream is a beverage consisting of milk, and soda water as well as vanilla or chocolate syrup, and is especially associated with Brooklyn, home of its alleged inventor, late 19th-century candy store owner Louis Auster. Most modern versions of the drink contain neither eggs nor cream.

The egg cream is almost exclusively a fountain drink. Although there have been several attempts to bottle it, none has been wholly successful, as its fresh taste and characteristic head require mixing of the ingredients just before drinking.

This isnt really a 'steam' thing it's just another application on the steam store.

The title makes it sounds like its an integrated feature which is mislading

Actually I think the inclusion of the word "utility" makes is sound completely unlike an integrated feature.

Kind of out of the blue:

The Super Tucano would make a great flight sim subject!

And the first story suggests Defense Contractor Tycoon.

Well to be fair, they do work at desks a lot. Oh wait... you meant the violators' weight?

Caleb wrote on Feb 22, 2014, 13:58:
Backer-exclusive documentaries and updates were part of the commitment Double Fine made with the Double Fine Adventure. Making the updates public may have reduced the Internet hate, but would have been breaking a promise to their backers. I really hope you aren't suggesting Double Fine should break their promises.

Not at all. I'm just suggesting making a couple of public updates along the way may have been a way of preventing it coming to the point where
he said: "That was really a lesson for us, learning that even though our backers are really well informed, the rest of the world hadn't really heard of us since the Kickstarter happened."

Was it nearly as good as Scandal's Warrior?

One of my pet ways of annoying the crew is by turning various moments into musical interludes, so I actually did sing bits of that while we are playing. I regularly make MrKawfy crazy by singing Black Betty any time someone says Bouncing Betty.

I'm sure Bats' regret that the game is always full is eased knowing this.

Nice Blue - I always try and get into your game - you have a solid 4 players. hahahahahah Jealous.

Sorry, yeah, we are quite consistent... we have only played these four players together in co-op since we rolled them up, and always as a foursome except for a point during a boss battle where our gunzerker lagged out, and has been a little behind on XP ever since.

I think it is... it used to be the BBC writing NASA, but to have the mouthpiece for Xbox LIVE not respect their own oddball capitalization scheme seems even weirder. He even calls himself Xbox Live's Major Nelson. Weird.

when the Warrior dropped, and a good time was had by all.

Did they finally fix it where some of that awesome loot is no longer under the warriors body, and you can actually get everything?

Seems that way -- I remember that from the first time I soloed the Warrior, but there were no issues last night.

Also, RIP Ralph.

and an incredible catalog of first-hand anecdotes from the golden age of baseball.

A lot of these "first-hand anecdotes" from baseball's old timers tend to simply not be true.

You'll notice that I made separate mention of his knowledge of the game from the point about the anecdotes, as they are two different areas. It's like the old saying about not letting the facts get in the way of a good story.

From his Daily News obit:

He once met the actress Jamie Lee Curtis at the ballpark. Ralph, in his courtly way, told Jamie Lee that there had been a time when he was a younger man when he’d dated her mother, the actress Janet Leigh.

At which point, according to Ralph, Jamie Lee leaped into his arms and yelled, “Daddy, I’ve finally found you!”
