For real, whats up with this ===> I'm a moron? I just want to point out a major flaw in FFXI because everyone, ALWAYS, I'm a moron at them.

What else does that?

Can I get a special one time title for 500posts?

Why can't we get some FFXIV news on the main zam.com page? All I see is games I don't play.

If you could call anyone in the world, who would it be and what would you say?

Any chance the NHL season will start before January 1, 2013?

I will take my questions off the air, thank you.

Can we get a basic rundown on how scholar guru system works or at least order of importance?

Also how about revisiting the Legendary "Yellow" thread.

I have recently discovered Cherry Marscapone and Pistachio Gelato. This have been bad for my diet. On the other hand, those little diet cups of frozen Greek Yogurt are pretty **** good.

Pie or cake: The aforementioned Hot Fudge Pudding Cake. Also bad for my diet.

I dunno, I don't play that game. I suspect they lack good sources of news or there isn't much news at the moment. if you see anything interesting, write it up and send it to the news staff. people have been hired around here for doing things like that (though there are no garuntees or even statistical likelyhood of that happening)

None, he'd go take the wood by force from the other woodchucks. who is going to stop the crazy chainsaw wielding burgler woodchuck? I mean, you know he steals things because woodchucks don't have money to buy chainsaws, and no one in their right mind just gives a chainsaw to a woodchuck.

Dalans wrote:

Sure! Unrated is "nuked through the floor" usually requires an admin to achieve this coveted rank. Sub default is below about 2.30. no title is a default 3.00 base karma. Scholar kicks in at 3.01 base karma and goes to about 3.75something. Then you hit sage. sage lasts until you hit guru. Guru is designed to be next to imossible to get, most peoploe should be scholars or sages. What else would you like to know about karma?
[quote=Dalans]Also how about revisiting the Legendary "Yellow" thread.

I dunno what that one is.
[quote=BonYogi]For all admins, are any of you left handed and do you have any adapting-to-a-right-handed-world stories?

I write equilly badly with either hand. I used to drive baseball coaches insane because I would just bat from whatever side of the plate I happened to walk up it from, and i'd often switch mitts mid game just to annoy them. It comes in handy sometimes...

Well, that would get you default base karma. make it $0.50 and i'll throw in the "unrated" special. $453 in the next ten minutes lets you keep scholar $1 per post? that seems fair! Guru requires large amounts of cash. all that finger clicking is tireing. i could get carp tunnels! then the carp could get in!!!

(or we could just leave it as is and let nature and green arrows take their own course. up to you)

Well, I missed the deadline, whats new? Thanks anyway, I had that $453 ready to go, my wife sold lots of stuff on Ebay this month. The money was for Christmas shopping but I think having a title on the Zam forums would have been a much better use of it. O well, to late now anyway. Thanks for trying to help.

On the forums here alone? I dunno, i tend to average about 60-70 words per post when you factor in some of my longer ones, I'd guess somewhere north of 2 million give or take, just on these forums and not counting my in progress novel, various work documents, etc.

Lionheartviii wrote:

It's actually a trick. There are really 12 hotdogs in the package, but 2 of them are made of dark matter, and thus inobservable by current scientific detection methods. Technically they are in their own pocket universe, caused mainly by the materials from whence they were created. Don't ask, you don't really want to know, and the hot Dog gestapo would have to "dissappear" you if you knew the horrible secret.

Lionheartviii wrote:

I have baked muffins on accasion, so... I might BE the muffinman!

Hydroxyle Uranium Hydrate. Nasty stuff. Never spill it on your carpet. Especially if you have ants prone to mutation.

Horsemouth wrote:

Nope, when it gets so big it bogs the forum down, it will go away and turn in to "part 2" thread. Thus is the eventual fate of all large threads.

Just on ZAM? I'm not as verbose here as I am on other forums, I couldn't even guess. Been killing keyboards just about since there were keyboards, though.

I just counted. Hot Dogs come in packs of 8.

That lives on Drury Lane? Yes. He worked at Hostess, and I hear he's unemployed now and living on his Union benefits.

Aerospace engineer. I have 3/4 of a degree in that, though I eventually switched to security and Intel studies and got my degree in that instead. Still would like to go back and finish the other someday, though now I work in an IT shop so it wouldn't really help anything.

I dunno why Vlorsutes hates Galkas. maybe he tripped over one?

Ok, no. I've seen two of these things now. And the second one I flipped over after I squished it. They don't have legs. They all pull them selves along the same way.

The one I found on the floor looked like a small smudge of dirt, until I noticed it was moving. The one on the wall looked like it had white speckles all over it's back. So I am convinced that whatever is on it's back is made up of whatever it eats.

Seriously, Kao. I need some answers here.

Is BDT going to be allowed to last forever?

Nope, when it gets so big it bogs the forum down, it will go away and turn in to "part 2" thread. Thus is the eventual fate of all large threads.


Has any other thread lasted for over three years?


There is a thread in the FFXI DRK forum that's been going since 12/25/2009. It's the third or fourth incarnation of that particular thread. Every now and again they get closed and replaced. Though the current thread has been going longer than any of the others.

There is also a second one that I don't really count, as it's just a ding thread, that's been going on since 08/12/2005.

No. Smiley: glare But when I see another one, I'll take a pic. It didn't occur to me to try and find out what the **** it was until after I had flushed the evidence.

There was one of those types of thread in the Warrior forum for FFXI. Iirc, it started before the DRK Club thread. There was more activity in your one, though. So Milich, lolgaxe and I upped sticks. Smiley: grin

If you had one day to do whatever you wanted with no consequences at all, let's just say it's erased from history, what would you do?

Let's also assume traveling anywhere in the world is done by teleporting and would not require any time.

Lets see, first i'd find a nice cave somewhere really remote and teleportable and set up a power infrastructure. teleport in a large generator, fuel, food, solar, etc. Then i'd teleport in a U.S. mint printing press, one of the $20, $10 and $5 plates (the larger denominations attract more attention) and the requisite paper, ink, etc. Also some startup legitimate money from various major bank vaults, etc. Once I had my large pile of neverending cash, I'd set up legitimate bank accounts around the world with large amounts of electronic funds, including a largeish one in russia. I'd then buy an island (20-50 miles in diameter) with water, suitable location for an airstrip, a harbor area and potable water. I'd then use the russian account to buy 2 decomissioned russian nuclear missile submarines (complete with a few missiles), 2 nuclear attack submarines, a huge pile of small arms, anti aircraft weapons, a few Migs, some helicopters, maybe some surface warships. along with as much power, sewer, water and data infrastructure as I could purchase. I'd also buy several large vertical CNC mill and lathe installations suitible for constructing large warships, aircraft, and tanks. I'd then bring in people to turn the island into an impregnable fortress backed by a nuclear deterrent, start building a massive navy and start my war of conquest to rule the world. It would take more than a day, but if I had unlimited funds I could at least sign all the contracts to pay for it and get it started in one day.

It might be a slug of some sort. Here are pictures of common slugs of hawaii. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2e/Slugs_1896.jpg and a video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lw2wwjxmWY4 They eat plants so they are pests. try pouring salt on it and see if it shrivles up and dies. if it doesn't, its not a slug or a snail.

Not a slug. And I have no idea why I watched that video as long as I did....

And I have to stop Googling to figure it out. I'll want to move away from this bug infested island if I keep searching for Hawaiian bugs...

No, that thing's too three dimensional. This thing was flat.

I found that website last night. I started feeling like things were crawling on me, so I called off the search.
