Re: Blistering blue barnacles

I don't know...most of the stuff I can do with a computer, I learned through a process of "what does this do? ohshitohshitohshit" and then having to work out how to fix it.

(for example, I learnt a lot about computers the first time I destroyed my computer's MBR)

Re: Language fleeting thoughts

The "hue" in the phrase "hue and cry" is totally just French "huer" which stuck around since English was like "those French are just the best, aren't they?", isn't it?

Re: Crossfire - The Job (Game On)

No, that part is accurate and doesn't rely on any logic. The rest relies on logic that might be false. It would help me to know whether you saw any kill targets, Madge.

Okay so I am also a little unclear - the rules say you'll pass a card to the next player on your list, and I'm struggling to interpret that. Would I have been passed a card by dimochka, by mpolo, or have I just completely misunderstood?
