Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but is that not just a fan-made lightsaber with fake blue smoke superimposed on it?

Search results say otherwise, even though I know for a fact I once roasted a bunch of people with a two-cows themed post way back when.

Wow, I could've sworn this thread had more posts than this.

"Insider Financial Tips"

I haven't owned a console since I moved to law school, so I can't judge (Pikmin 3 was about the only solid exclusive I managed to get through), but it definitely seemed like the most insubstantial library of any Nintendo system.

Finally saw The Wizard. It's definitely not a great movie, but it made me smile a lot.

I can almost certainly grow some form of facial hair now, but it's none more impressive than it was in 2006 than it is ten years later.

I've a competent beard myself at last!

Wild, wild stuff. The tension is almost palpable.

I'm slightly better looking, but that's about it.

Mega-bump: After much soul-searching, I decided to go and actually make that book look good on Kindle! That, and I fixed some typos, which I count as cutting the less-great entries. Give it a look if you haven't already, and spread the word!

Mega-bump: Hey, I finally got off my bum and actually put some effort into formatting these for Kindle! Also, fixed grammar and cut the fat from Love&Darkness. Check it out, y'all--tell your friends.

An intriguing argument! I'm not sure if it's the story being lame (or, at least, I don't think that's required) so much as being *vague*, or at least suggestive of a larger community/society that isn't one-note windowdressing or so clearly delineated that you couldn't imagine yourself as part of it. That is indeed definitely why the earlier Paper Mario games (and, by essentially parodying the Mushroom Kingdom as a whole, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga) succeed: they take a world that, Super Mario RPG aside, had never been particularly nuanced or self-aware, and let the characters diversify and, well, breathe.

"Confidential Property"

Yeah that's a fake.

Yeah, I count myself lucky I found a strangely noncompetitive listing--no one else was even bidding, so I got it for $130 (someone else had been selling it for $50, but I had this nagging fear there'd be a catch).
