What do you think is the biggest problem facing this country today?
Political polarization. Each side treats the other side as an enemy to be destroyed, not countrymen one has to learn to compromise and live with.
So much dust, so little allergy medicine?
I would have said pollen, but the principle is the same. :cry:

I'm only allergic to two things; organic and inorganic matter.

When you carefully coat a miniature in a wash, set it carefully down, then manage to knock it into oblivion (also known as the dark corner between my chair and the couch), coating it in a suave layer of dog hair and dirt?

Truly. I started to proclaim a reckoning, then realized there was no one to reckon with.

Bugs that are never 100% reproducible are the worst?

I was troubleshooting a regular Heisenbug today.

One of our application's features is exporting some metadata in XML form. Pretty straightforward. However, the unit test for this was failing. So I started looking into it, first by running it.

Immediately, I see something is wrong. The XML being returned from the program is very, very different from the test reference. I try debugging, step through some breakpoints, nothing sticks out. So I look at the output again.

The mother trucker has changed. Yep. The output of our XML generator is completely random. I'm not even kidding when I say that I can barely get it to return the same thing twice.

At this point I call my boss over. He's equally confused, but we dig a little deeper. We tested it on code two weeks old. Test passes flawlessly. That means sometime between Monday and August 4, this bug crept in through one of our commits.


At this point, he suggests we send a team-wide email to see if any of the devs at our satellite offices know what's going on. We're still waiting on a response.

Pepsi. All day long.

Hadn't read it. I don't generally read manga though I have a few anime favorites.

I was painting shelves, and the only thing we had was enamel. @[email protected] Enamel paint is of the underworld.

What do you think about Warmachine/Hordes core rules going free?

My wife as played it a bunch. I had thought about trying it but to be honest I find most Disney characters annoying.

Makes sense, since that seems to be the trend these days. Hopefully it'll attract more people to try it.

Some of the characters (especially Sora) are a little bit kid-ish, but overall the story is pretty great. The gameplay is really good too.

Heavy and hard-hitting, or agile and unpredictable?

My hope as well. I know when I'm talking about it, I'm happy that I don't have to tell people that, in addition to purchasing expensive models, they also have to purchase slightly expensive rules. Though I still prefer my book, truthfully.

Gnomes?

Depends on the situation. Neither tactic beat the Man in the Black Mask...
Gnomes?
Generally, no.

In my D&D campaign world, Gnomes are nomadic and tend to roam the world as merchant traders.
