Probably because we don't have to deal with the bloodstains afterwards.

When all else fails. Find an abyss and throw a rock into it. The sound it makes is soooo soothing....if you could hear it over your own screams as the tentacles snap you into their grip.

I looked into the abyss. It had a lot of dark in it.

Then I went and had a piece of pizza and a pint

I lived whole years staring into that abyss. I'm sure I looked away eventually, even though I don't remember doing so.

Several items:
1) That thing was hatched out of a friggin' egg. How weird is that?
2) Who thought of the name "puggle"?
3) At what age do they turn red, wear high-tops, and develop bad attitudes?

Daughter got a la la loopzy (or whatever) but it has this hair on either side that you can move and adjust in an assortment of ways....an assortment that when extended looks much like the tentacles of Cthulhu coming out of the depths. So I have my daughter calling it her Cthulhu-doll now. Whenever the hair isn't curled, it is in Cthulhu mode.

This morning when she woke up she told me, "Last night mommy put me in bed with Cthulhu."

Funniest moment of the day!!!!

So I'm reading Shards of Honor, and I can't quite get it out of my head that it feels like reading my own writing style. It's a decidedly odd feeling.

Sometimes I read a submission because it seems familiar, and I really start getting into it.

Then realize I wrote it like 5 years ago

One of these days, I'd really like to participate in a campaign set in the Megaman X universe, or something extremely similar. GM, player, I'm not sure I really care which.

You know, when I was writing my zombie robots thread, the image I had in my mind was reploids. So I can totally see this.

That said, don't discount regular civilian worker-bots. Their environment and work requirements have the same sort of difficulties as military bots do, which means giving them human forms makes a reasonable amount of sense. And there would be a whole lot more of them than mil-bots.

Oh I concur absolutely, the military robot and military power armor both grew out of civilian robots and civilian power hard suits.

Would anyone even be interested in a Cosmic Era RP?

I would, the setting is certainly large enough that before the game we would need to make some decisions, like all mecha, or a CogNet based game, parapsychic fighting or whatnot, so everyone's character is on the same general page

If you honestly think that you can plagiarize someone else's work and not get caught, you are an idiot. Twenty years ago, you could do it and stand a chance. Today? I've got a nifty little tool called "Google", which excels at finding matching documents from text fragments. So that code you just copied from a tutorial and didn't bother to change at all? Yeah, that was the first hit on my search.

I applaud your audacity and resourcefulness. Laziness is a job requirement for our profession. You should always try to avoid reinventing the wheel. Your job application is still going to the bottom of my trashcan, because the point wasn't to get something I could actually use, it was to show that you could build it on your own.

Dumbass.

Does that include shoving it under the remnants of today's lunch? And maybe the addition of lighter fluid? Followed by an invocation for the great and mighty Cthulhu to munch upon said person's intestines?
