    • Politics
      • Trump's revised travel ban goes into effect.
      • New bill to replace Obamacare (Affordable Care Act) is proposed. Democrats are heavily opposed, meaning that Republicans need to agree on what to do - and this bill probably won't get through, as the so-called "Ryancare" is critized by both sides for causing massive cost hikes for seniors.
      • Eight judges of the Constitutional Court of Korea unanimously agree to uphold the impeachment of Park Guen-hye.

    • How would your enjoyment of Fallout be affected by the game being located in your city?
      • Third place was less enjoyable.
      • Second was that it wouldn't affect much.
      • First was more, because you would like to see how Bethesda takes your city and uses it.
    • In Fallout, what's your main reasoning on how bases should be nuked?
      • Third was that you nuked all enemy bases.
      • Second was playing without blowing up any bases.
      • First was that you w…

    I've never been one to wear facepaint. This includes stuff you can wear at holidays (more or less 4th of July). Think me weird, but I've always had a fear that once put on, it would not come off. Yeah, I know, that sounds crazy, but that fear is there. I've tried to reason with it, but I still can't have my face painted. What about you?

    George Washington is one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, but did you know that he was actually not a father? Scholars and historians generally agree that he became sterile when he contracted Scarlett Fever when he was young. He tried to have children, but never could. So what about the children you see in paintings of his family? They were his wife's, Martha Washington, from her marriage previously.

    What do you think of Daylight Savings time?

    • Third was huh? What? You didn't understand the rather simple question?
    • Second was you don't really care. It doesn't have much impact on life anymore, so why bother implementing it?
    • And first was that you …

    I don't know about you, but I don't like Daylight Savings time. I just get used to the "old" time, and then I'm supposed to switch it over again. Does anyone know which is the original time? I think they (the old "they") like it that way: you'll never know which is the real time, the one nature goes by. Is it Daylight Savings time, or when it ends? Why do they have to do this? Its nonsense. What's wrong with non-Daylight Savings time?

    Charles Buchinski is supposd to own his stage name due to a traffic light in Los Angeles. Driving down Hollywood Boulevard, he had to stop for a red light. He had happened to stop at the intersection of Bronson Avenue, and liked the sound of it.

    And Charles Bronson was born.

    Do "aliens" ever visit your residence?

    • Third was that you don't mind. Do they ever get into your garbage cans and scatter the contents? Then you'll mind.
    • Second was you don't think so. Better check. I think I saw a furry tail!
    • And first was that you don't have any of them where you live. Ar…

    MAR. 3, 2017 - MAR. 10, 2017

    • In terms of real news, the week was pretty quiet. Want to learn more about Trump making up wiretapping stories and the media making up Russian stories? Go somewhere else, this ain't where you're gonna find it.

    Another week of record turnout: 54 votes on the top poll!

    • How much would you probably enjoy a Fallout MMO?
      • Third was that you would love it.
      • Second was that you weren't really interested.
      • First was that you'd hate it.
    • Would you play Interplay's Project v13?
      • Third was yes.
      • Second was yes, but only if the game was non-multiplayer.
      • First was no, as it doesn't own Fallout rights, making the game boring.
    • What would you most want in settlements?
      • Third was more quest tie-ins.
      • Second was better object placement.
      • First was more content in the base game over the DLCs.

    • In Memorium
      • Joseph Wapner, known for being the first host of The People's Court, dies at 97.
      • Actor Bill Paxton, who played in Terminator, Titanic, Aliens, and Apollo 13, to name a few movies, died at 61 of complications following heart surgery. He had most recently played as the 'trainer' in the new show Training Day, based on the 2001 movie.

    • Do you prefer one or multiple brands of Nuka-Cola?
      • Third place was that you didn't really care.
      • Second was that you preferred one brand with lots of varities.
      • First place was that you wanted as many brands and as much cola as possible.
    • Do you think future Fallout games should keep Settlements?
      • Third answer was no.
      • Second was yes, definitely.
      • First was yes - but only if it gets major updates.
    • Do you think programmable Terminals would be nice in a future Fallout game?
      • Third place was no, sounds boring.
      • Second was yes, sounds very inter…

    Aliens visit my backyard every few days. Always at night, too. They chatter up a storm (it sounds like arguments, really), keep getting closer and closer to the house before the dog runs at them growling, then the cretins curse loudly and scatter off into the night.

    Before you start thinking that I'm like Dale from King of the Hill, let me explain that I'm not talking about actual aliens, but rather raccoons. Their speech sure sounds like what you'd expect an alien to sound like. I enjoy telling dad "The aliens visited again" and not tell him I'm refering to the raccoons and smile at the confused reaction afterwards.

    Long, long time ago (1600's and early 1700's) it was fashionable for women to carry a little tin in their purse or tucked away in their dress. Inside that tin was a thick paste made from the Belladonna flowers, a deadly poison. In order to recognize death by Belladonna poison, one has to look for dialated puplis. It's a trademark effect of the poison. Because large pupils were…

    Welcome to another long awaited edition of captioning fun Caption fans! Agent c was kind enough to allow me to bring back the caption contest due to his busy lifestyle with studies. So, at least for the next few months, I will bring you the contest :)

    • In Memorium
      • Fox News anchors Brenda Buttner and Alan Colmes die within days of each other. Buttner, host of Bulls and Bears, died of cancer at 55; Colmes, best known for his role on Hannity and Colmes from 1996 to 2009, died of a "short-lived illness" at 66.
    • Politics
      • This week was fairly normal politics-wise, so I'll share a quote instead of news today. While discussing Trump's policies with other MSNBC anchors, Mika Brzezinski said the following:

    Her point was not challenged or even corrected by anyone else in the room. So thanks, MSNBC, for admitting to thought control. But hey, at least you're not fake news any more.

    • What addition to Vertibird flying would you want most in a future Fallout game?
      • Third answer was a tie between 'none, I don't li…

    While I love patterns, there are some that I think are ugly. Geometric patterns (like ones that appear on "modern" paintings and Neo-cubist junk) make me twist my face in disgust. Why? I can't tell you. I don't know why I hate them, but I just hate them. I also generally don't like stripes. Another pattern I can't tell you why I don't like it. Sure, they're fashionable, but you shouldn't wear things that are dictated by "fashion" but you don't like. That's a recipe for disaster.

    In March 1993, a drunk (unknowingly) broke into the M16 - Britain's equivalent of of the CIA - looking for a place to sleep off his binge. He wandered around the headquarters for an hour undetected before they found him.

    Goes to show that even what are supposed to be the "safest" and "most secure" places can be anything but.

    Are there words that you think are over-used and just drive you crazy when you hear/read them?

    • Third was that there are no words that bother you. Hear them too many times in a sentence and you…
