Oh Stephanie. Did you forget to take your meds again?

If it’s Washington, must be Independence Day.

Stephanie, I’m so glad you called. Are you hurt?

Okay, Where’s your mother, Stephanie?

Is anyone with you?

Is that Michael Douglas, third from left?

Okay, sir. I need you to take a deep breath and tell me your name.

I had similar trouble with a friend. Haven’t got time to go into the whole story but he was a friend from school. His mum kicked him out at one point (when we were like 21/22 or something) so he stayed with my family. His mum and my mum had been friends too so he was a friend of the family. But he basically started stealing money from us to the point where my mum had to put a lock on her own bedroom door. She eventually kicked him out too for other reasons I won’t go into. I stayed his friend but he just kept getting worse. After my first stint in Japan I went to visit him. He seemed to be doing alright, but some time after my sister went to see him without telling us, he got her wasted and she crashed her car and lost her license. I haven’t seen him since then. I don’t hate him and I wish I could help but I had to put my own sanity and already limited finances first. So, I’ve distanced myself from him. I know he’s been in and out of institutes and been homeless for a bit but my family did our bit and he took advantage, nearly bringing me down with him.

Are you calling from your place of work?

Haha before I saw the explanation I thought I had it nailed. The phrase “2 meter long chopsticks” could be ambiguous:
Hell - they each had one chopstick that was two meters long. (Pretty useless, though I guess they could easily spear the food)
Heaven - they each had two chopstick that were a meter long. (Might be difficult but they could at least pick up the food and put it in each other’s mouths)

Why do I feel like it should be obvious who that guy is but can’t put a name to it?

There are some good hidden object games. Some people turn their nose up at them for being too ‘casual’ but there are some fun ones which have a decent story and a good blend of adventure gamey features.

I’m currently playing The X-Files: Deep State. It’s a good game. The “adventurey” puzzles are insultingly easy and it’s full of annoying microtransaction pop-ups which you have to learn to ignore. But the story is fun and the actual hidden-object part can get pretty challenging. Worth a try.

Clever trick how the number increases making you think loads of people are also currently signing it.

I was wondering about that. I saw like 15 "people" sign in like 20 seconds and was wondering how they only had about 10,000 so far.
yeah. Yesterday when I looked, it was at 10091 and was going up at a rate of about 1 per second. Well, today it’s more like 10254 and there are 86400 seconds in a day. Fishy.

@CrimsonWizard I’m not sure. The way the number goes up slightly irregularly gives the impression that people are clicking live. It might not be a trick but I think it is.

Has Gilbert himself mentioned this petition? I know he’s said he would like to buy the rights back but that’s hypothetical right? Or does he have some idea how much they would ask for it and genuinely think he could buy them back from Disney?

LucasArts should have given him the rights cheaply before they sold up.

Kweepa. Your turn. Unless someone else has got a good one?

Dark Fall scared the tits off me. Other games like it (Barrow Hill, Lost Crown) had a good go but none of them shat me up like the first Dark Fall game.

I haven’t seen 7 or 8 yet. It seems like they’re really trying to recreate the mixture of good horror/cheesy fun that the original series had. On that, I think they are succeeding. But they’re not taking into account that TV drama in general is just so much better now than it was in the 90s. The cheesy/fun episode just don’t hit the mark like they used to. There is so much more life in The X-Files, with or without David and Gillian, but if they keep making more they are going to have to start playing it straight otherwise it will become a parody of itself.

...someone has to carry it, and it cannot speak directly to people and explain what it wants, merely influence their thoughts and feelings, and even then it is ambiguous....

Got it.  A MacGuffin is some kind of human baby. :=

Well done Kweepa. It’s Kolchak: The Night Stalker.

Your turn.
