To be honest, here, I prefer mild temperatures. If I absolutely had to choose between hot or cold, I'd choose cold. Why, you might ask? Because with cold, at least you can put on more and more clothes and huddle under a bunch of blankets, but with hot, there's only so much you can take off before there's nothing left to take off, and you're still hot. Ever tried to sleep during a power outage in summer? You'll get my point. Though I'm not calculating you weirdo masochistic people that like to suffer. For you, I'm not going to argue. Just give me Spring, Fall and Winter. You can keep Summer.
I read somewhere that each tongue has a unique print. I'm talking about your taste buds, here. I don't know how they found out; how many people did they take a magnifying glass to? You won't catch me looking in somebody's mouth with a magnifying glass or asking them to make a "tongue print" anytime soon.
What position do you generally sleep in?

I'm not really good at introductions but, I'm -bleep196-. Most people know me as Bleep, or "That guy with the laser eyes" or "The bug smasher" or "That guy who keeps spamming recent edits" due to several of my roles and mannerisms both in chat, and in my editing practices. After some discussion with Agent C, and other members of the Admin/BC team I decided that since my role in the community is often limited, and I spend quite a bit more time editing than interacting, It would be good if I contributed to our expanding community news and events. I figured since I specialize in maintenance editing, it would be a good idea to shed some light and draw some attention to one of the major moving components of our wiki, projects. As such I will be doing a monthly blog entry concerning the various ongoing/active projects, their goals, their progress, and why you, editors, should think about getting involved with them.
With the release of Fallout 4 we had an influx of content, and users, and wit…

I can't sleep on my back: I get a backache. Its not like I haven't tried, but sleeping for more than a few minutes in that position gives me not only a backache, but heartburn, too. I generally sleep on my left side, though sometime I wake on my right. Sleeping propped up against the headboard, too. I used to sleep on my stomach long time ago, but I didn't like the way I had to contort my head and neck to the side, so I'd wake up with a neckache. 'Course, none of this helps with the age-old problem of your clothes and hair out of whack when you wake up. I've lost count of the times I'd gotten out of bed and dad pointed at my hair and guffawed too loudy. "Bed head" hairstyles are overrated. Heck, the ones you always see advertized in women's magazines are not even the way you look after getting out of bed. Its all a sham.
Baking soda is actually the main ingredient in fire extinguishers, believe it or not. For this purpose, you can just douse a small fire with a box of the stuff (make sur…

Hear ye, hear ye! Its the one year anniversary of Leea's Saturday Polls! Hard to believe that its been one year since I took over. Its all been very fun (and still is), and they ended up being like a TV series; once a week you can watch everyone's reactions to another "episode."
Does this sound like I'm leaving? Nah. Someone'll have to find me in my hidden studio and come in guns blazing before I leave the Polls. Sort of like Queen Potema in the Elder Scrolls series, but hopefully alot better liked.
Here's to another great year of the Polls! Cheers!
You all know about the two different versions of measuring the temperatures on your thermometer: Farenheight and Celsius (or Centigrade). But did you know that they were named after different men who discovered them? Mr. Farenheight's way of measuring was adopted in America, while Europe and a few other countries went for Mr. Celsius's way of doing it.
Are there modern day "musicians" that you thought totally sucked and you wondered why some peo…

My Poll intro will be like the latest fashion: long enough to cover the subject but short enough to be pretty to look at.
Disclaimer: The Weekly Saturday Poll is a poll (not a pole!) every Saturday asking the community what they think about the fallout series ranging from skills, guns, music and other paraphernalia. Have a suggestion for the next poll? Tell me on my talk page!

Question #1 I asked In New Vegas and Fallout 4, did you miss being able to enslave people?
- In third place with 21 votes was no, slavery is naughty! Santa doesn't care if you're naughty or nice.
- Coming in second with 30 votes is it would have been nice as an option. Everyone's gotta make a living right?
- And in 1st place with 37 votes was I wouldn't care if it was there or not. Fallout isn't exactly renowned for slavery mechanics.
Question #2 I asked Ever feel like there's not enough people in the Wasteland and its towns?
- In third place is seems like there's enough fo…

It must be in some "musicians" ... karma? destiny? ... that they would be famous, 'cause, man, there are some that are so terrible that I wouldn't even pay a buck for their album. Or take it for free. Worse, some of these singers and musicians are played on store speakers, so when you're shopping, there they are blarring in the isles, and it makes me want to carry a gun into the store and shoot the speakers out. Also, just as bad, are the musicians that not only have a bad voice, but then "sing" a "song" (note quotation marks) that's just two or three, maybe four, sentences over and over. You call that a song?! Where's the prose? Where's the meaning? You're just saying two lines over and over!
In going with the "musicians" theme, did you know that Franz Shubert wrote over 1,000 pieces of music during his lifetime, and he only lived to be 31? Some of his friends would watch him writing at fantastic speed, and when he was done with one, he'd rip off the sheet and start a new symphony or co…

Ever had a dream where you woke up and thought "What the hell?"
I ask this because I had a dream the other day where I woke up and asked the same thing. Granted, I've had dreams of this "sort" before, its no new thing to me, but this one was so out of whack that I just laughed at its absurdity. What was it, you might ask? Well, it was:
I was walking in a house with a brick floor and stucco-like walls, and someone was giving me a tour of the place. As I was walking around I was thinking to myself, "This is kind of a small house for O.J. Simpson. But, then again, what kind of money can he have just coming out of jail?" Then, I went outside and there was the man himself. He gave me a golf club, and then he talked to me as I sorted pink, purple, and white Good and Plenty candies into color-specific piles. I was thinking in the dream, "I don't know what I'm going to do with this golf club. I suppose I could always hit someone with it."
Then the dream ended. Talk about weird. What the hell was…Read more >
Ever hated (or merely disliked, for a less strong word) your local newscasters?
I do. I have for a long time.
They make the stupidest jokes, especially the weatherman in the morning, and the jokes he makes about summer are the worst. Hey, maybe you haven't noticed, man, but I'm suffering here with 80-degree temperatures at 6 in the morning, which tells me we're going for another hot day, and all you can do is make jokes about sunscreen and laugh like you're a stand-in for Santa Claus!
I know that the producers no doubt tell them to be "jolly," but I think they take it to extremes, laughing about stuff that shouldn't be laughed at, like how cold its gonna be in the winter, or what blistering temps there will be in the summer.
A few years ago, I read about a guy who patented a snake leash. I kid you not. How the hell would the snake not get free? Why would you be taking your pet snake for a walk, anyway? What snake would want to go for a walk?
Do you think these studies have any "real" benefit…
