    Well, that was my experience of SLA; sooner or later you would finish up in a gun or spell battle (mid 30s group)....

    #241 - In the show, the Drogna were made of perspex. They were also circular, with a sticker for the polygon. Since this is a fantasy world, exactly how they are made is up to the GM. Your technique would...

    Or Drogna (from "The Adventure Game". The value of any individual coin was given by the number of sides on a polygon multiplied by the colour's place in the rainbow, so a red circle would be 1 drogna, a violet...

    I got it, but as a software engineer with side interests in accounting/audit and probability, I am a mathematician for the purposes of jokes like that!...

    On rust monsters - Ever seen a party of dwarves stripped down to their scanties, and beating rust monsters to death with wooden clubs? It's not a pretty sight!...

    You get "sweet chestnuts" and "horse chestnuts" in Glasgow, so up to 55.8N....

    Actually having just re-read the OP, I'd suggest that the best thing to do about food in a Radisson RED is probably ask for an outside restaurant recommendation....

    #80 - Also hurley, which is sufficiently closely related to shinty that if you understand one you understand the other (aside from scoring rules, think field hockey without the "no sticks above shoulder height" rule), and indeed there is a...

    See, I read your para 1 here and thought "professional kitchen equipment and price reflects this"....
  • Commented on Story time!
    Or Paul Cornell's "Shadow Police" series; a 3rd Larndarn-based law-enforcement/government series with a magick system incompatible with those of our GH and Ben A. (and the Verusverse is incompatible with all 3 now cited)...

    #22) I've never been near anyone doing serious class A (that I know of) but you're actually agreeing with me about theincarnationthattalksveryfast being dangerous to know or even be around. The later antiheroine may have occasional impulse control issues, but...

    I take that's thereallymanicHarleyHenchpersonincarnation and not the later antiheroine with occasional impulse control issues?...

    Then Germany is another 83E6; say half of them live North of the 48th parallel and we're at 111E6 already having only looked at 2 nations....

    Yes, as well as the Non-Euclidean, I've stayed in the Thiefrow Park Lane (and some of you already knew that). Despite the differences in the floor plate, I found the easiest way to tell the difference was by reading their...
  • Commented on Story time!
    Yeah, the only Radisson I've ever been in was the "Non-Euclidian" at Thiefrow. And yet another anodyne corporate chain hotel. Other than "because MBAs and/or marketing people" why do they even bother to pretend to be different?...

    Well, Greg's covered some of it, but the Thiefrow terminals are physically separate buildings, requiring bus or rail transfers between them....

    I have no idea what "The Seagull" means; "The Fifth Elephant" is one of Pterry's Discworld books. "The Fifth Element" is a film so boron I've never watched it right through....

    #273-276 I'm honestly surprised to find anyone still using solid cast iron plates. The last electric tops I saw like that were on my grandmothers' (possessive plural) cookers, which were bought before I was born (July 1962CE). Having said that,...

    #268, #269 and #271 - Very much assuming that:- 1) I actually use cast iron hotplates rather than radiants, halogen or induction technologies in the top. 2) The heat held in the top is greater than that in the pan...

    True - Engrenages (unaccountably titled "Spiral" in some markets, including the UK: the French translates better as "gears") is a drama but shows off institutional racism in the Paris police and legal system....
  • Commented on CMAP #16: Book Title Blues
    Well, I think that should have been baked in by the Palace of Oathbreakers telling the people of Scotland "You can only remain in the EU if you vote to remain part of the UK" in 2014, and then in...
