I think it would be safe to say that this topic has jumped the fishstick.

I'm sticking with that until the Cheney government stops monitoring us. For those of you old enough to remember, Doonesbury had a series where Zonker Harris and Mark Slackmeyer were motorcycling across the country in a parody of Easy Rider. The get caught for drug possession and placed in a hotel room until trial. They find a bug and use that line. The case gets thrown out over the illegal bugging. Now a days they would never get to trial since under the Patriot Act, these subversives could be held indefinitely and the arrest could be kept secret for reasons of national security.

Stupid server made me retype this over an internal error.

Heeey, I know your game. You're deliberately trying to make us ridicule you by pretending to be stupid. I'm not gonna fall for that anymore.

I'm not pretending to be stupid, in fact I have no idea how any of my former post(s) was in any way stupid, it was in fact a detailed and comprehensive comeback against a person whom I consider a mild scource of entertainment. Plus, I had some time on my hands.

EDIT: Oh, Randomizer, I find a lot of these errors can be overcome by using Ctrl-C on your highlighted post before submitting it. Just something that might help you.

It depends mostly on which company is selling the fish sticks. For those caught in the north Atlantic, expect it is mostly cod. For those caught in the northern pacific, it can indeed be Pacific whiting, but also sablefish, true cod, or any of the other ground fish which have tasty flesh which fails to hold shape very well after being cooked. I suspect this has something to do with the intense pressures in their natural environment, and some biochemical reaction to being cooked. Or, more simply, the stuff that binds together the muscles in surface fish is stronger or "morer" (<- that is a new word) than in those fish found at more than 40 fathoms of depth.

Hmm. Maybe I should do some more sciency type research on this.

And yay for Aran! But remember, you can still respond if you want to see the response you engender. :)

I want to say that tasty, crumbly white flesh is mostly due to them being fairly inactive fish and so don't need the same type of muscle as more active fish, but don't quote me on it.

Why, why do you keep rising to my bait, intentional or unintentional, so easily? If I said rain was wet you would probably attempt to come up with some unimaginative reply to counter me.

Oh well, don't stop now, I quite enjoy watching your attempts. It makes a change from casting Dominate Monster on level 8 repeat-spawn haXXors. I look forward to your horrifically witty and inevitably devastating reply with trepidation.

Is there going to be Tartar sauce available with these fishsticks? Or would that be an abomination against the mighty Salmon...

I still can't get over the fact Aran said "stat-wanking". :P

I always assumed fish was crumbly in order to get people to choke on it - a sort of last ditch attempt at killing it's predators. Of course, since that particular fish is already dead, and cooked, (and served with a garnish of guilt,) it's too late for him, but at least the rest of the species will flourish.

(P.S., I wanted to make a flounder joke so bad, it actually hurt.)

I think your understanding of what is witty repartee may be a little off. Here's a hint: correcting a person's sarcastic remark on the rules of a completely customizable MMORPG doesn't work. "Please die" from a previous thread also doesn't work too well, either.

You are setting yourself up, dude, and not impressing anyone. If you say you aren't trying to impress anyone, then I invite you to reconsider why you bother posting here at all - I can't imagine it's because you enjoy the company.

Admittedly, I'm messing with you because you annoy me and it's so easy, and I guess that's against the spirit of the CoC, so I'll lay off. Time to start working on that greasemonkey script to block your posts from appearing on my screen...

Rain in and of itself is not wet. It's only when the water in rain at a certain temperature range comes in contact with another substance can we determine by their interaction the condition of wet. :)

Come on you really didn't expect anything you say to go unchallenged.

If anyone is eating salmon fishsticks, there is great disturbance in the force.

On the other hand, I have a great recipe for beer battered salmon poppers.

Edit - I no longer choose to pester Nikki about his diet. It is his choice, and it is blindingly unfair for me to bug him about how silly it is for him to limit his caloric intake to so few sources. Plus, it leaves more for me. ;)

Salmon should be grilled and topped with a green olive, tomato, and onion salsa. Tasty.

Xel-raga, go look at the last topic he made.

:Edit: My bad. Ants should be fried, not grilled.

Jeran, the main reason for these conflicts is that role playing and discussion of in-game accomplishments are appropriate only in limited situations. This is not a role playing board. So if you want to talk about spot checks and swords, you should either start a separate thread with a title like "DnD and other role playing" (and limit such discussions to that thread), or find a forum where such references would be appropriate. (e.g. forums for OotS comics.)

It is possible to occasionally throw in well-placed DnD references for a good effect. However, "occasionally" and "well-placed" are the key words here. Since you don't have a good feel for when such things are appropriate, I suggest you refrain from them for a while.

If your post about your new sword was made in the dedicated DnD thread, somebody might have congratulated you on your accomplishment. However, in this thread, it was as random as boasting about buying an expensive car, and generated similarly annoyed responses.

In summary, since is isn't a role-playing board, your constant DnD references are treated as a gimmick, and a particularly annoying one at that. (Ranking right next to Iffy's muffins as far as annoying gimmicks go.)

--------------------
Be careful with a word, as you would with a sword,
For it too has the power to kill.
However well placed word, unlike a well placed sword,
Can also have the power to heal.

He posted some things (for no apparent reason) that grossly violated the code of conduct. The thread in question has been spirited away (due to grossness).

That's really not fair to Iffy. He's got his muffins under control now.

Though Dikiyoba still wouldn't recommend trying to take away a muffin's food dish while it's eating. They don't like that. :P

You know, it couldn't've been more than half a week ago, I realized I hadn't seen Iffy around. I was hopeful, I'll admit, I was even somewhat rejoicful. Then, the next thread I see has some weak one-lined post of hit.

In conclusion, I hate fate. So much so that I am willing to censor my thoughts to prevent some ironic contradictory coincidence.
