Re: Regional Dialect and Idiolect Oddities (pronunciation)

Where I grew up in East Tennessee, for most of my life I heard the local dialect referred to as Southern. When I would see actors in films and television affecting a Southern accent, I would often roll my eyes as I found it instantly recognizable as unauthentic. It was only when I was a bit older th...

Re: What were your dreams last night?

Alligator people. Head of a person, body of an alligator. And I guessed they were from Outer Space, although I don't recall there being direct evidence of this.

Re: Great Steam Deals (And other Online Distribution Systems)

I just looked through the list of games. There are only two there that ring a bell. I played Windosill, and I remember enjoying it as a well-done puzzle. It's only a little better than a well-done flash game. Looks appropriate for a bundle like this (I got it in a Humble Bundle a few years ago). The...

Re: Great Steam Deals (And other Online Distribution Systems)

It looks like you can claim Limbo for free from GOG.com if you have your GOG.com account linked to your Steam account. I always considered GOG.com to be one of Steam's big competitors, but I guess I understand the video game industry even less than I thought.

Re: 1761: "Blame"

"Friend" is just a friendlier word. "Acquaintance" means you know someone, and does not imply friendship, or in other words, it does not imply that you want to share that person's company. I am acquainted with my friends, as well as my enemies.

Re: Gaming fleeting thoughts

Thanks for the replies. I went to nvidia's site, downloaded the driver it told me to, which was a .exe file, then I ran the .exe, and it said it wasn't compatible with my version of windows. That's all it said, and the only option was to close the window. So I'll try again later.

Re: What is in your pockets / purse? Every Day Carry discussion

I like to refer to the things I'm carrying in my pockets as loot. I know it's dumb, but of course it's because I like to think that if an adventurer was to slay me, the slayer's next action would be to loot my corpse, and it's what's in my pockets that they'd receive. I am rather routine about my da...

How is "fit" defined? Do the people need enough space to move? To live? Can we not just pile them on top of one another? I know the people on the bottom would be crushed, but we can make them fit.
