Sock puppets (fake accounts): Given that both the purpose and impact of these are generally dishonest and misleading, it's hard to be at all positive about them.

Cats (musical): No.  I still have nightmares about that one song that the one girl in my elementary school insisting on singing at every single @#!$@ school music program.

Goldfish (snack): I don't understand how they can be inhaled so quickly.

Paprika (film): Not ranking this as I haven't seen it but boy, the synopsis on Wikipedia sounds craaaazy.

Spam (e-mails): On the one hand, annoying and stupid.  On the other hand, you sometimes get some pretty amusing subject lines.

KISS (principle): Pretty much a stupid and limbless rephrasing of Occam's Razor.  It's not that it's wrong, it just has no reason to exist.

Tangent: While we're talking about names with apostrophes, I have a question which I may have asked before but I forget: I have a demon character named Wendu'lu, and I've also tried Wen'dulu. I'm trying to find the best way to call her (WEN-doo-loo) but without the fecal appearance and hopefully not looking terrible, but I'm not sure how. What do you think?

I'm trying to find the best way to call her (WEN-doo-loo) but without the fecal appearance and hopefully not looking terrible, but I'm not sure how. What do you think?

 

The difficulty you may have here is English stress and intonation.  English stress patterns mean people will expect one of two pronunciations: either Wen-DOO-loo, or WEN-da-loo.  If you want that long u sound in the second syllable, the natural tendency is going to be to treat it as the stressed syllable rather than wen.  I would do two things.  First, use something else to represent the long u sound in the second syllable, so it doesn't get schwaed.  Second, find some way to set the first syllable apart (perhaps lengthening the spelling as well) so it is a more natural target for stress.  (I would not suggest an apostrophe, because they tend to show up where there's a glottal stop or a contraction, which is not actually what you want.)  Some potential ideas:

 

Wehn-doulu

Wehn-duulu

Waen-doulu

Waen-duulu

Wenndoulu

Wennduulu

Wenn-doulu

Wenn-duulu

 

Another option would be to play on the similarity to Cthulhu, and go with something like

 

Wendulhu

Nethergate: A good story with brilliant atmosphere in a clever game system.
Jane Austen books: Bah, and that's all the analysis you'll get from me.  Sorry.

Cinnamon rolls: Good, but generally way more sugary than is necessary.

Casablanca (the film, not the city): It's fine.  I respect it, but it's not really my thing.

Sparkling water: I like it, but I don't like going to the bathroom as frequently as drinking it entails.

Mr. Toad of Toad Hall: An arrogant several-words-could-go-here who does not deserve the page time he receives.
Thomas the Tank Engine: No?  No.  No thanks.  And that's plenty of coverage for this franchise.

George Clooney: He's a perfectly good actor.  I did think he was by far the least interesting of the original six ER cast members, and didn't understand why he was the one who managed to catapult to stardom.
Cluny the Scourge: A good, competent villain with a beautifully concrete name.
The Dalai Lama: Really, really complicated.  I'm not sure I can find a place to put him on the list that I'll feel good about.  Let's leave him off under the "superposition" category.
The aesthetic qualities of hieroglyphics: I support writing on general principle, but -- eh.
The aesthetic qualities of the Greek alphabet: Lovely and flowing.
The aesthetic qualities of the Hebrew alphabet: The close-cleaving to calligraphy gives it a stylized look that is both good and bad.
Nephils: As fantasy races go, they're pretty good.  I particularly like the nuanced depictions implications we got about nephilim and nepharim coexisting in E1-2.  (Unfortunately, that thread never recurred.)

Sliths: As fantasy races go, they're pretty good.  Ultimately, magically-adept lizardmen are a less hackneyed idea than agile catmen, and the Sss-Thsss / Bahssikava background is pretty good, especially if you consider the way Kelandon has expanded on it.
The Adventures of Pete & Pete: Good for what it was.  Never quite pulled me in.

the video of a bunch of turkeys walking in a circle around a dead cat in the middle of the road: Does not deserve to go viral. That's what turkeys do.

Minecraft in general: Not my bag.

Inspector Peanut: I support Inspector Peanut.

Grant Wood: Like some of his art; prefer it to his regionalism.

Norman Rockwell: Like some of his art and some of his ideals but ultimately am not super moved.

Hypgnosis (art collective): Assuming you mean Hipgnosis, not really my favourite.

I don't know where the Like button went, but thanks. :) I'll think more. Wenn-duluu might be better; there's meant to be a little more emphasis on the third syllable but I didn't want a schwaed e or a like some people suggested. The double u makes it look and sound about right.

Your favorite Exile/Avernum character (you choose): Hmm.  There are a few contenders, but ultimately, it's probably Prossis-Bok.  (Athron also comes to mind.)
Your favorite Geneforge character (you choose): Definitely Shanti.

Your favorite Simpsons character (you choose): Also no question -- Maggie Simpson.
Today's weather: Not good.
Lawsuits: Uh... they're necessary?  Important?  A mechanism that potentially empowers the weak.  Even some of the ones that people bring up as frivolous were actually legitimate, like the infamous McDonald's coffee lawsuit.
Mexican food: Tasty.
Bossa Nova: Very cool.  Also something that, as an influence, links a few of my favourite bands in different genres.
Trombones: Good instruments.

Nixon's foreign policy: A real mixed bag.  It was mostly competent.  Some substantial moves towards peace, some problematic military operations (especially in Latin America), and some truly unfortunate ongoing arms sales.

Aretha Franklin: It's hard not to like Franklin, but if we're talking classic female soul, Gladys Knight is more my speed.

Frodo Baggins: Ultimately becomes a remarkable and evocative portrait of PTSD.  Beyond that, I find him thinner.

Bilbo Baggins: A personal favourite and perhaps the most thoroughly drawn (and most human) character in Tolkien.  People don't pay attention to it, but Bilbo also offers us an icon of the power of compassion, on a grand scale, as is rarely seen in literature: "The pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many."

I'm sorry, but what exactly is legitimate about this lawsuit? Both, the lawsuit itself and the judgment, are equally incomprehensible to me.

 

And another giant mystery I'm asking you to rank: Trump.

In your link it says: "In 1994, a spokesman for the National Coffee Association said that the temperature of McDonald's coffee conformed to industry standards."

 

And that's exactly what I don't understand. A coffee was ordered and a coffee was delivered, no crime so far, as far as I can tell.

It strikes me that if your industry standards involve delivering food which can cause third-degree burns, something is wrong with your industry standards.

Coffee is a brewed drink. Call me crazy but I guess the hot water needs to be hot so that it can be used for brewing (could that by chance be the reason for water used hot as industry standard for brewing?). 

 

In my opinion, however, the legal system is often only used for personal enrichment and even endangers areas such as health care, but I really don't want to start an argument here.

My emphasis.  Wikipedia:

Quote

During the case, Liebeck's attorneys discovered that McDonald's required franchisees to hold coffee at 180–190 °F (82–88 °C). At 


190 °F (88 °C), the coffee would cause a third-degree burn in two to seven seconds... McDonald's claimed that the reason for serving such hot coffee in its drive-through windows was that those who purchased the coffee typically were commuters who wanted to drive a distance with the coffee; the high initial temperature would keep the coffee hot during the trip. However, it came to light that McDonald's had done research which indicated that customers intend to consume the coffee immediately while driving.

Other documents obtained from McDonald's showed that from 1982 to 1992 the company had received more than 700 reports of people burned by McDonald's coffee to varying degrees of severity, and had settled claims arising from scalding injuries for more than $500,000... McDonald's coffee would burn the mouth and throat if consumed when served.

 

 

 

Per the WSJ:

Quote

When a law firm here found itself defending McDonald's Corp. in a suit last year that claimed the company served dangerously hot coffee, it hired a law student to take temperatures at other local restaurants for comparison. After dutifully slipping a thermometer into steaming cups and mugs all over the city, Danny Jarrett found that

none came closer than about 20 degrees to the temperature at which McDonald's coffee is poured, about 180 degrees.

The testimony of Mr. Appleton, the McDonald's executive, didn't help the company, jurors said later. He testified that McDonald's knew its coffee sometimes caused serious burns, but hadn't consulted burn experts about it. He also testified that McDonald's had decided not to warn customers about the possibility of severe burns, even though most people wouldn't think it possible. Finally, he testified that McDonald's didn't intend to change any of its coffee policies or procedures, saying, "There are more serious dangers in restaurants."

Mr. Elliott, the juror, says he began to realize that the case was about "callous disregard for the safety of the people."

John Calhoun (politician): Competent and abhorrent.
Schuyler Colfax: A Radical Republican whose abolitionism outweighs his scandal and who has a name that makes him sound like an eco-villain from Captain Planet.  I mean, come on.
Henry Wallace: Statistician, plant scientist, mystic, progressive.  The Plato of vice presidents?
Phantom stair step (top): This can cause spills.  Wouldn't want to be holding a McDonald's coffee. :p
Phantom stair step (bottom): Momentarily quite unsettling.

That John C. Calhoun ranking...ugh, I can't stand that man. Talented and successful politician, sure, but plenty of awful people are successful politicians, so Calhoun has plenty of company.
 

However, this ranking blunder :p does give me a convenient opportunity to share this delightful story about Mr. Calhoun that is unfortunately fictional but totally deserves to be true.

Pet Sounds: An amazing, pioneering album with an unmistakable sound that has truly stood the test of time.  (And if you're a fan, Cal, allow me to recommend the trippy, meticulously crafted reworking _Adieu or Die_ by Will C -- https://willc.bandcamp.com/album/adieu-or-die-album)

Nevermind: An overplayed, overly iconic album -- but you can see why it became that, and I have to give it some credit.

The Queen is Dead: I love the Smiths.  Their albums don't fully cover it -- a lot of my favourite stuff is non-album, and _Louder than Bombs_ really pulls it together for me more than any one LP.  But _The Queen is Dead_ has some beautiful turns, and it might be my favourite of their studio albums.

OK Computer: Nearly as much of an instant time-warp for me as _Nevermind._  I have a widely varying opinion of Radiohead's music but _OK Computer_ is the sort of album I really can't say no to, with a unique, evocative timbre and every last note fit into place.  Remarkable, even if it is unboundedly depressing (and less cathartic than either the Beach Boys or Smiths entries on this list).

goog: Not familiar with these.  I've given them a listen and feel generally good about them, but don't feel like I can rank them fairly after only cursory experience... I'm OK with Zappa.  I can probably best represent my feelings here by telling you that my favourite Captian Beefheart album is _Shiny Beast (Bat Chain Puller)_.  Henry Cow's "Nine Funerals of the Citizen King" may need to be added to the hymnal for the Church of the Nine-Headed Cave Cow.  Also, I'm curious (a) if _Tarkus_ gets its name from Akkadian, and (b) if Shadow Tarkus in Av1 got his name from this album.  Not quite in line with Jeff's other band citations, but you never know.

 

Richard Cheese: Eh.

"This is a Trent Reznor Song": How far the man's music has fallen; sigh.  It does seem to be accurate these days.  It's hard to feel good about it though.

Fifty Shades of Grey: How not to publicize a subculture.

Gilbert Gottfried: Points for Iago, at least.

"Gilbert Gottfried Reads Fifty Shades of Grey": Points for the expressions on the listeners' faces.

 

Avadon series: A lot of good bits and a lot of things that drag them down.  Uneven in most respects, and not evenly.

The last game I played: Pretty good, thanks for asking.

Freefall (webcomic): Simply not funny.

Bacon: Overdone, but also best when it's all crispy and overdone.

I gotta say, salty licorice is amazing and you're really missing out if you don't try it. It takes a couple pieces to acquire the taste, the first one you try is nasty but only the first. Once you've acquired the taste there's nothing else like it.

Also, I'm curious (a) if _Tarkus_ gets its name from Akkadian, and (b) if Shadow Tarkus in Av1 got his name from this album.

"Tarkus" (the album title) is a portmanteau of "tank" and "carcass", because this is prog rock and this is how we do things.

 

I would be very amused if Shadow Tarkus got his name from the album, because every time I see his name in the game I already involuntarily think of the big armadillo tank, but like. Dark. Evil.

No Tropical Hot Dog AND NO ICE ROSE???  You're kidding, goog.

 

BitTorrent: Better than not.
Kierkegaard: A major influence, for me.
King Leopold: A very bad man.
Ontology: A necessary exertion, rather like the Dead Marshes in Tolkien.
The War on Drugs (band): A great example of competent, polished, drab indie rock, that takes interesting elements and chews them as if they are bubble gum.
A hypothetical box which has a 97% chance to be filled with cuddly kittens, but a 3% of being filled with hundreds of dead rats: Kittens are great but are not worth even a small chance of rats.

 

Ninjas: An archetype with versatility, including a lot of potential for interesting moral turns.  Pretty good.
Pirates: Source of bad jokes and bad movies.
Robots: A broad category that I feel I cannot adequately summarize in a judgment.
Bartenders: An occupation that is useful and tends to be competently filled.

 

Basketball: A pointless sport.
Baseball: A boring sport.
Football (American): A sport that is less brainless, at least until you get hit in the head.
Soccer/European football: A sport I roll my eyes at.
Hockey: A sport that has fewer annoying fans.
Tennis: An elitist sport.
The Olympics: A heinous, corrupt, exploitative, inequitable, culturally stupefying event.
The Cranberries (the band): Solid, with a moving voice (RIP) and occasional bouts of musical greatness.  "Zombie", despite its mainstream success and radio oversaturation, has some pretty amazing, subtle harmonic progressions going on, and is of course one of those songs where the subject and the musical form -- including the unique vocals -- dovetail perfectly.
The Muppets: Yes. Bork!

I do still like Shiny Beast... I just prefer Bat Chain Puller. I like Drumbo more than I like Robert Williams, and Shiny Beast has no Denny Walley, whose slide guitar is so good.

 

In general I have mixed feelings about late-period Beefheart, cuz it's obviously still really good, but also I guess I don't like the "feel" of the band on the last three albums so much, or the production. Also, a depressing number of the songs are recycled from years before, which lends to the feeling of general decline. Ice Rose (the music for it at least) was written in 1967, Owed T'Alex was a poem written in 1965, Suction Prints and Harry Irene were written in 1971.

I disagree with your dismissal of reworked material on account of it being "recycled."  Some of my best output, in any medium, pregnates and morphs about for years at a time before it is done.

 

Edit: Also, why is the "which Captain Beefheart album are you" quiz no longer around.  That thing was surprisingly deep.

I don't think the earlier-written songs are bad, I just mean that their use points to Beefheart evidently writing less new material over time, which of course culminated in him ceasing to write new material at all: the ultimate tragedy.

The Queen is Dead: I love the Smiths.  Their albums don't fully cover it -- a lot of my favourite stuff is non-album, and _Louder than Bombs_ really pulls it together for me more than any one LP.  But _The Queen is Dead_ has some beautiful turns, and it might be my favourite of their studio albums.

 

 

Yes! Louder than Bombs is incredible. Rank is just as good. To borrow a Partridge-ism, my favourite The Smiths album is definitely "The Best of The Smiths".

OK Computer: Nearly as much of an instant time-warp for me as _Nevermind._  I have a widely varying opinion of Radiohead's music but _OK Computer_ is the sort of album I really can't say no to, with a unique, evocative timbre and every last note fit into place.  Remarkable, even if it is unboundedly depressing (and less cathartic than either the Beach Boys or Smiths entries on this list)...."

 

 

Hmm. I really love Radiohead, and I think OK Computer is actually one of my least favourite record they've put out. I like that it;s unboundedly depressing (but is it even? Even songs like Exit Music and Let Down and No Surprises have a kind of escapist joy to them!) and I like that the 20th Anniversary remaster is as felicitous as the original was. 

 

I mean, either way, hooray! Maybe one day I'll post proper thoughts on these albums/artists. <3

sea slugs: Pretty cool looking. Also an enemy in DW2, which is cool
the Eiffel Tower: I suspect there's a lot of really bad crap entwined with its history, but at least we got a cool Pixies song out of it

 

"Acceptable in the 80's": Unnecessary
"Stuff from the 90's!": I *have* nostalgia for the 90's and I *still* despise this.  I can't tell if it's attempting to make a point about negative stuff being ignored, or just a dumb joke.  The fact that the first three "jokes" were emblematic effects of egregious systemic ethnic supremacism -- but then the fourth was the Oklahoma City Bombing which, while sad, has a lot less to unpack -- suggests that it is what it looks like: a bunch of clueless white kids (they are literally all white) trying to be ironic and, unironically, failing
"Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros": Trying too hard
The Deck of Many Things: I've always loved this on many levels.  More recently, I've been postulating that the Donjon card is the origin of the strangely titled "Dejon" spell in Final Fantasy (usually localized as "Warp" or "X-Zone").
Tarot: Similarly, there's a lot of neat, involved symbolism here.  I have to admit though that the best Tarot is this one -- http://www.benjaminmackey.com/magicianlongstoseetarot
ELIZA: How this has stuck around as long as it has is beyond me
Your favourite anime: Thumbs up

 

Cor Blok's Tolkien art: I was pleasantly surprised by this.  There were a few that I really liked
Pelicans: The Pelican is the symbol of a particularly venerable British college into whose gardens I was once locked in overnight.  It's a good story.  I don't find the widespread religious symbolism that interesting, though
Flamingos: Like two flamingos in a fruit fight -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4j_yeXgz_0
Ravens: I'm down with these liminal psychopomps
Roguelikes: There's considerable variation here, but ultimately, this is a good genre
The Big Lebowski: Fine, but overrated
Mechanical pencils: You'd think someone would have improved this design by now
AOL: OnlineHost : SpidWeb rolled 2 6-sided dice: 2 5
Smartphones: ...I wish I didn't appreciate these as much as I do
Homestar Runner: Not Strong Bad
Bagels: Mmmf mmnf.
Donuts: Potentially great but so many are just so overdone with sugar.
Beowulf: Not as interesting as other epic heroes
Robin Hood: Ruined by Hollywood, if there was ever anything there to begin with
King Arthur: Somehow not ruined
Queen (Band): Never been able to appreciate them
Louis Armstrong: I find him less exciting than many of the other jazz giants

 

salt lamps: What's that smell -- is it an oncoming pseudoscience postravaganza?
Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote: I'm a sucker for Borges.  This piece has so much to it

 

Nick Cave: There's a lot of things about him that I appreciate, but his music somehow takes itself a little bit too seriously for me
Spirited Away: A favourite, period
Jiji (the fictional one): A favourite instance of a favourite archetype
Jiji (the one on my lap): So many things I want to say here, Nikki.  So many things
Getting a triple word score in Scrabble: Good, except it means you are playing Scrabble, which is bad
Princess Peach: Mixed feelings.  On the one hand she is a truly enduring damsel-in-distress.  On the other hand, some of her appearances are actually pretty good.  And there's always the original Super Princess Peach -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmjMBhp8Nrw -- besides which I strongly prefer "Toadstool" as a name

 

Barbarossa: I don't know enough to have strong opinions about these, and I roll my eyes at the last one, but I do still give you points for "Checkmate, Hohenstaufens"

My take on "Stuff from the 90s" is that it's mostly a parody of those "only 90s kids remember..." social media posts that invariably revolve around touchstones of consumerism. Other generations get VE-Day, or the moon landing, or the fall of the Berlin Wall, we get... stuff. Hence the repeated "stuff, stuff, let's name stuff".

 

The other aspect (and this might be more of a stretch) is that 90s kids, having been children during that decade, tend to view it as being peaceful overall. In particular, I find that the younger half of millennials seem to view 9/11 as the original sin, the opening of Pandora's box that let all the evils into our post-Cold War paradise. I guess it's the same way older generations view the 50s as this idyllic era.

 

I dunno. I like it, though what I liked most about it was the groans it induced every time it popped up on Calref chat.

 

Also, the high ranking you gave The Ruiner of Campaigns makes me think you've never played with it before.
