Means of transportation to school: Bus or train + tram
A RL nickname not previously mentioned here: Pallinaama (although they use it with much love, mind you)
Worst choice of Halloween costume you've ever had: N/A, we don't really dress up on halloween.
A mythological figure you identify with: I dunno. Epimetheus?
A Simpsons character you identify with: Mr Burns (I don't recognize any Simpsons episodes made after season 10 as canon. It's really been going downhill.)
Favorite Sesame Street character: Never watched the show. I think they have aired it here, though.
Favorite Spidweb game character: The most memorable at least is Vyvnas-Bok. He was the cracked crystal, wasn't he?
Favorite (English) word: Ubiquitous. The only word I learned in high school.
Favorite cereal: Almost forgot the most important. I usually eat the basic weetabix cereal with yoghurt for breakfast.

Okay. Screw mysteriousness. Like it does anyone any good. So get ready, here's more facts than anyone wants to know:

Age: I am 22 and a half (like the half ever matters)
Gender: Masculine
Sexual Orientation: Hetero
Marital Status: Single
Highest educational degree completed: Finnish high school. Am studying accounting at university level. 50% complete.
City/metropolitan area where you live: Espoo (no, it's not part of the Helsinki metropolitan area)
Racial/ethnic origin: Finnish
Nationality: Finnish
First/primary language: Finnish (I'm on a roll here)
Religion: Finn... no wait. None. Was babtized lutheran like about ninety percent of Finns. Figured I was an atheist at age 11. Quit the church last year.
How long you've been a Spiderwebber: Like I mentioned elsewhere, been playing since late 90s, a poster since January.
Whether or not you're a septuagenarian eskimo: Septu-wha? Well, I'm quite confident I'm not an eskimo. Or Imban, for that matter.

Who knows, maybe I'll even post on the next photo thread?

Edit: Wheee! I'm a Journeyman!

Neat.

As for #2 on your list, I'll contribute:
The box where you type the keywords doesn't appear for me until I change the "search by" criterion once.

Using Firefox 1.5.0.1 on XP SP2 in case you care.

Indeed congratulations to Ephesos, Salmon and Aran on their respective posting milestones.

Again, referring to a certain Mythbusters episode, the cola only removed most filth from the surface of the penny, leaving said penny usable and - as a result from the cola treatment - quite clean.

Answer these, and the SICTG™ will get back to you promptly with some vulgar derivation of your essence.

Oh, what the hell. Could you do one for me as well? I'll try to come up with profound answers to the questions:

1) North-East Europe. This is actually more specific than I would want to be. Let's just say that I'm fluent in swedish, german and finnish. And I will say nothing more.

2) N/A

3) I believe we can coexist peacefully.

4) My favorite color? I have none. Although blue and black seem to be dominating in my wardrobe and decor at the time.

5) Life itself holds no meaning. It exists only for the purpose of giving stimulae to the people who live it. Life is derived from this stimulae, and therefore every experience we have during our existence is equally important, for it may teach us much about the surrounding world, and the people who live there with us.

Wow. Many thanks to Imban for going through the trouble of separating the above into their own thread. I'm looking forward to seeing the debate proceed, eventhough so far I'm having trouble reading through Synergy's posts with all the religious rhetoric. Still, this seems to be a very lively conversation.

Edit: Damn, missed the second page. To participate in the thread however, I'm with TM in the claim that whether or not God exists, if he/she/it doesn't see it necessary to make itself manifest, we have no obligation to follow its wishes and/or to try to exact its will upon humanity.

Doesn't anyone watch Mythbusters? It doesn't work, I'm afraid. Teeth soaked in cola for a long time will only get very brown, but they will still be there. Cola does not dissolve teeth.

However, drinking 'til morning will definitely hurt your studies. I guess. We'll see when the exams hit.

Pointless or not, at least there's one source of nausea not yet mentioned: a certain pair of gauntlets also has uranium rivets in it. I remember having one in E2/A2, and the bonuses the gauntlets gave were well worth having to occasionally cure some disease.

The first two songs that came into my mind were ones I already listed on the 'songs that are good for bludgeoning' -thread, so I'll just try to think of something new:

Go with the Flow - Queens of the Stone Age (I can sympathize with the chorus mainly)

Edit: Removed the other song I had. Only one was asked for.

We've got enough snow to cover the ground over here, but not much more than that.

I must be getting old - it seems that there was always much more snow when I was a kid.

True, but if I did the poll, it would seem like an open attack against the use of 'chicken gods', and I don't really care that much. I was only thinking about this topic: if everyone who dislikes the aforementioned starts posting here, then the photo-thread will be permanently derailed.

Holy Allah and/or Jahve, Aran! You just incurred the wrath of billions of moslems! Oh, and thanks for doing so, since I hadn't seen the pictures before.

As for the whole caricature-thing, I think the moslems might be overreacting a bit. Also, the whole thing seems a bit artificial. After all, as I've understood it, the pictures were published in september. Does it really take that long to deliver the Jyllands Posten to the middle-east?

Others, including yours truly, have experienced the problem. The solution is to remove a bit of code. Instructions here . (See Kelandon's post near the end.)

I can relate to that. If my friends had gotten me into a dress and taken pictures, I wouldn't want other people to see them either.

Also, I think Ed might have been more traumatized by the TM incident than it initially seemed.

Moonstone - MoC in Blades of Avernum
Shock Trooper
Member # 6666

It is quite hard to find, especially since the places where it might be are not visible until you're about one or two tiles away.

The first part of the quest was to track the group of nephilim who stole the stone. They can be found in the northern swamps, a little off the path as I recall.

After that there are two camps of the cats against the mountain-side. Start by moving north of Tampere, and then continue heading west. The terrain graphics surrounding these camps deviate somewhat from the normal.

It can be solved and I found it to be quite simple. The key thing to remember is that you can push the boulders even by looking at them from the other side of the fence (i.e. you're on the other side, the boulder is on the other). Yes, the boulders are supposed to be put inside the fence. Just start piling them in the back. And don't worry if you don't get it, I seem to remember the only reward being some experience points.

Actually, having just woken up and seen all the wonderful topics (the cmd Edward incident, mainly) makes me wish I lived in a different time zone.
