  1. Bummer. I hate getting rid of gifts. Have to think on this one awhile.
  2. Thank you, I see it now. Called "Hunter's Blade". As an aside, does the "Reproducing Bulwark" do anything but make bricks in your inventory?
  3. Do normal horseshoes boost your stats in any way? How does the training you receive from that lady in the woods help you? It says she can boost melee or ranged skills, but those stats don't directly exist in the advancement tree. Is this a behind-the-scenes boost? If so, who does it affect, your main character or all characters?

I asked him what the warranty is for and he just. . . just growled, like a wolf driven mad by hunger. The police won't help me because they think I'm employing a figure of speech. Please help me. My credit card is nearly maxed out and I do not know what this man is capable of. Oh, my mistake. I hope you can find someone who will help you with your..., problem.

  6. Oh boy. Talking about the weather is banal in person, but online?! Seriously, why does anyone care? Especially if you don't wish to discuss climate change?

A. Terrible grammar. B. Load of garbage. Atheists most certainly do care about what others believe. If they didn't there would be no need to argue. They care just as much as religious people do. It is just much easier to sit back, smile, and smugly say "Prove it" than to actually make an effort to engage in debate. It makes a perfect fallback. Requires no work, no thought, no effort.

Basically what Randomizer and Lilith are saying here is to remove anyone who makes a publicly known mistake. That is foolish. Because people are imperfect, they WILL make mistakes. No matter how genius you think you are, you too will make them. This is just a more publicized one. Additionally, if you removed those people who made the publicized mistakes, you would be left with a crevasse filled in with spineless, cowardly, let's-play-it-safe-so-we-don't-get-fired people who would stagnate the sciences they were in. Critical analysis is a key way to achieve greater understanding. That's where the phrase "learning from one's mistakes comes from". If everybody just shied away because they were too afraid to be wrong, we'd never get anywhere. Almost all of the greatest minds of history were eventually proven "wrong". Take Newton and Aristotle for example. Are they laughed at because they didn't grasp quantum physics and general relativity? Because their systems of reasoning were eventually shown to be flawed? No. Instead, they were building blocks for the next generations of thinkers to analyze and correct.
  10. I'd call them, if you have the option. It's very instant.

Does Steam merely host downloads like Gamersgate? They don't actually work like a distributor?
  12. It should vanish. Just a month ago there was another thread on this. It's a terrible game. But then there are a few people like Seres who like it. And it drags it's pathetic existence on...

  14. Yes, but Spiderweb games does not reach anywhere near as wide an audience as Steam does. Steam is more of a distributor than a producer, really. And yes, I do know that Valve makes games. But Steam sells games from all genres. They can afford the price reduction.
