I would love to if I could manipulate the weather.   We've had some flooding issues in the state with how rainy it has been.   No flooding in my immediate area but other parts of Ohio haven't been as lucky.

You can have some of our sun if you want - it's bloody roasting over here, with a great big mass of humidity as well :P.

I'm not that fussed about the SimCity games (I dont tend to be that good at strategy) but my dad likes them. I remember SimCity 2000 being possibly one of the best out of the SimCity games we played, though.

Why are there so many ninja on this forum? I wish I could see one instead of just hearing about it.

You have failed to kill the ninja. You have no choice but to preserve your honor with seppuku.

For some reason this website has become something of a tech support. Whenever the track pad on my laptop stops working, I come to this website (I have a touch sensitive moniter, for those wondering how), and then my track pad starts working again. I guess I have to thank this website for helping me when my computers track pad stops working, because going here is faster than reseting my computer

You can tell us, that laptop is work property and you made that post just to cover your arse if they see how much time you spend on this site, right?

As in, the number is too small be worth counting? Or it is too large to count? Because one is better than the other.


The space/time continuum was broken when I got here. Honest.

Yes. Having too many jellybeans shows a worrying loss of appetite

I do the kind of square dance where you either refuse to dance at all, or awkwardly sway in rhythm for a few songs before you get bored and then refuse to dance at all, while your friends dance properly.

TL; DNR: No.

This is why I like square dancing - no rhythm required.  If you can walk and listen at the same time, you can dance.

I'm with Silverleaf, my idea of dancing is awkwardly standing there until I give up and sit down for the duration of the time

I was disappointed when I learned that contra dancing had nothing to do with Konami.

Do that repeatedly at high speed, and you've got yourself a signature move.

Wow. I didn't realise we had so many people suffering from a serious disease on this forum.

Link to diagnosis

Sorry I helped enable you all, I had no idea you were suffering.

...

My actions make me sick. I'm not sorry for that pun.

That's swell.  All we need is a new pun epidemic.  Not like we haven't been plagued by enough of those.  It makes me nauseous just thinking about it.

It's an ill wind when pun threads start to die.  But this thread is still in it's early stages.  I think that zit has a long life left.

Let's do some conundrums!*

 

This is how it works.  I'll tell a story which has most of the important details left out.  You guys ask yes or no questions until you've figured out the bits I left out.

 

A man was out walking, and came across a cabin in the woods.  Two people were inside, both dead.  How did they die?

 

(and if you already are familiar with the answer, please don't spoil it!)

 

*Well, my family calls them conundrums.  I've seen them called other things, none of which I can come up with at the moment.

I hadn't ever seen Crack the Case before.  But from what I can see, it does look very similar.  But this isn't a question.
