Kingdom of Loathing / Re: The trunk works now.
« on: November 03, 2009, 03:49:15 pm »
...I find myself torn. Generally speaking I'd say the flail is the worst item.

...except I just decided to try and get to level 30 in DB and an item turns up which can give me +10 moxie points per fight?

Decisions decisions :P

Kingdom of Loathing / Moveable Feast
« on: November 03, 2009, 03:41:20 pm »

...similar to Gals polyp thread really. I can't decide if this item is awesometastic (never having to get pull fam specific equipment for each individual fam again + a short term buff useable on multiple different fams a day) or kinda rubbish (I usually stick to one fam anyway and I'll almost certainly forget to use the buff).

Considering I'm 50/50 on if this is a good item I can't see myself trying to get one. Anyone else care to convince me otherwise or going to take  the plunge themselves?

*tries to remember if he set an avatar and fails, so makes a post to find out*

Ermm...*struggles to think of something relevant to add to the conversation* ...Damnit!

Edit - and I had, all is well :P

Power of Meep (Clan) / Re: Hobopolis Run?
« on: October 30, 2009, 11:51:11 am »
Started going through the sewers today before I realised that I only actually had 3 areas in my hobo binder :P Think I managed to get most of the ones currently available to me so I should be able to make a proper start tomorrow :)

Edit - also do you want some meat towards the cost of the nodules and opening the hobopolis gal? I've only got a couple of mil on hand at the moment but I can probably scrape together quite a bit more if I actually went through my inventory so don't worry that you'll be clearing me out :P

Can't say it particularly leaped out as something I'd want to have because I like to run +items or +stats if I'm just trying to run through an ascension quickly.

But it is a good all round fam so if it appeals to you then go for it :P I definitely wouldn't say its a bad choice, just not one I'd go for personally :)

I think I've decided to try and get the level 30 DB trophy, mostly because I'm too lazy to ascend for the time being but I feel like I need to have some sort of aim to keep myself adventuring :P

So I'll have the turns to burn. Although as I demonstrated last run with my low damage output and inability to dodge the hobos DB isn't such a great choice so don't be expecting great things from me :P

Edit - would you actually want to try for a speed run or would we just be going through it like we did last time?

Kingdom of Loathing / Underworld tree
« on: October 27, 2009, 10:36:11 am »
Has everyone got their underworld tree drops? The spooky bark was only dropping about 1 in every 5-6 adventures for me with +220% item drops so make sure you leave yourself enough turns.

If you run out of turns I have 16 spare spooky barks than you can nab if needs be. I don't actually know if this is a one day event but I thought I'd make the offer anyways :P

I wanna see whats inside the chest :o any guesses?

I wish that I knew how to drive already :\

are we supposed to believe every politicians lie?i'm not about to believe in a false hope... the Nobel committee may be ready to, but America isn't

Well to be fair he was elected by the American people on the basis of promises and hope for change. So America is apparently ready to believe in him. The rest of the world wouldn't really care who he was if the American public hadn't done so and showed that opinion by voting.

Also according to their website the people who can nominate someone for an award are many and varied so you can't blame the Nobel committee for the nomination which was my main complaint, only their final decision.

In the end of the day just because the Nobel prize award system isn't perfect doesn't mean that getting a Nobel prize means nothing. Frankly I'd imagine Obama himself is probably kinda annoyed they gave it to him this year as well, what ya gonna do :P

Your explosion seemed kind of scary, so to calm us down, here's a fairy.

...considering you'd imagine the majority of people entering fairy into google image search you'd expect to be young girls, a large number of the fairy pictures were somewhat *ahem* adult o.0

On November 18, 1948, the Norwegian Nobel Committee decided to make no award that year on the grounds that "there was no suitable living candidate". Chairman Gunnar Jahn wrote in his diary: "To me it seems beyond doubt that a posthumous award would be contrary to the intentions of the testator."

So basically they were going to give him the award but they decided that Nobel wouldn't have approved of giving the award to someone already dead so instead they gave it to no-one that year. Can't really say I see the logic. It would have seemed better to have awarded the prize money to a charity in his honour or some such rather than just not awarding it at all.

Does raise the interesting point though that there was obviously precedent for not awarding a Nobel prize in a given year due to a lack of any candidates standing out. Could have done that instead of awarding it to Obama but as I said, in so far as I can see I'd rather someone gets the prize money and puts it to good use than not award the prize at all.

Do I think he deserved the prize? I imagine there are those more deserving. Does it particularly bother me? I read he was giving the money away to charity, so not really.

I have to say my main problem with this is that he was apparently nominated for the prize only a few days after he came to power. At which point he literally had done nothing whatsoever, including making speeches and holding meetings which is all you could currently claim.

Having said that a quick internet browse found that there were apparently over 200 nominees this year, more than any previous year, so there was obviously less far of a consensus on a few people making a large difference. Apparently the names of the nominees who didn't win won't be officially released for many years so we can't peruse them and decide ourselves if he was the most qualified, but I do find it hard to believe he'd done more in his first 12 days in office for peace than anyone else in the world in the rest of the year.

Even if you think Obama deserves the award I think it would have been highly sensible to wait until next year before nominating him so that he could be nominated based on his actual achievements instead of just his aims.
