Shoes defy space and time

Post by Tharasix »

So, how exactly do those shoes avoid getting moved by the door when Nate slamns it open?

1) You were not supposed to notice that little oddity caused by having to flip, rotate, and even skew the background to keep everything in frame.

2) I wouldn't put anything past Nate's shoes. First of all, that would require crossing them. I mean, you've met them!

3) Nate opened the door so quickly, it never actually occupied the space containing the shoes, and thus there was no contact. It's a quantum thing.

A better question is how the window doesn't shatter when the door's handle is slammed right into it. A better answer is "Shut up, you!"

why that game?

Post by Ashallue »

So Mark, why did you choose to have Princes of the Renaissance be the boardgame we're playing? Was my "this isn't a game of high strategy..." comment that funny?

Because I didn't feel like drawing lots of little units for anything else. Also, it's what you were showing off when you said:

I thought so, but that doesn't always mean much.

Hey Andrew, what are the starting city values for Princes of the Renaissance? I started to explain the game to Jeremy awhile ago and realized that I couldn't remember what they were and that isn't in the instruction manual.

And bad pzambert. I don't need to hear both your and Chad's voice in my head.

I'm more amazed that he was outside, spray painting without shoes on in the first place.

Perhaps, he lives in a matrix like pseudo-world and the movement of the shoes around the door is one of the "Deja-vu" movements where the matrix is correcting itself.

Normally I don't go outside if I have a choice not to. However, I doubted Chad and pzam would appreciate me spraypainting in their home. So I had to work outside on their patio like area. Since it was made of concrete and pretty clean I didn't feel a need for shoes. At least not at the beginning...

I forgot about that. There really isn't any green spots in my bathroom at the moment. I'm still curious how I managed to do that last year.

Yeah, those purplish spots would have looked so out of place on the pink towels.

I choose to ignore the threatening connotation here. I was tempted to ask for your horrible couch when you guys move, heh heh heh. Then I realized you might try to give it to me.

why am I possessed by a sudden fear of this couch?? :(

on a side note, whenever I open up this thread and see the "I'm butt" picture/avatar at the top, I always have the "Lump" song by Presidents of the United States of America pop into my head, only the words have been subtly altered:

"I'm butt,
I'm butt,
I'm butt,
it's on my shirt...

I'm butt
I'm butt
I'm butt
and it's un-girt*

I'm butt
I'm butt
I'm butt
I'm feeling pert.

*un-girt meaning unclothed
