I understand why anime characters in training wear bandages on their limbs so often now. I think the muscle bundles in my left forearm are starting to loosen from eachother just because of lubbing large quantities of soda a few times a week (grocery shopping, not manual labour). That probably is something the support of some tight bandages could prevent.

"My muscle mass is increasing"

"I better stop that with some bandages"

I think it is more for sweat...

 

Anywho, I forgot my own advise from Space:

'If you mentally preface a 'good idea' with the word 'Seemingly' then it is actually a bad idea.'

 

On the plus side I discovered I can carry twice my body weight at a rate of 1 mile per hour. (Though it impairs my ability to type)


Well I knew you wouldn't agree. I know how you hate facing facts.

More like:

"My muscles are falling apart"

"I bet some bandages could prevent that"

 

Because really, it's starting to hurt, and when flexed my left forearm has more pronounced sepparation of the muscle bundles than my right, despite my right arm being nearly twice as strong.

That is very bad, you should go visit the local witch-doctor.

All people great and small.

 

There will be a PvP Pathfinder 'session' in 3 hours.

Session will be on the RScript server cause still banned from the SwiftIRC server and they haven't got back to me yet (suprise suprise)

#Bladeward

If people have Google Chrome they can also use the roll20 online tabletop:

https://app.roll20.net/join/14876/32-s9w

 

It is mostly for people (Mather, Retech, Nex) who want to test out their characters/vent their hatred for the party without screwing up Windward. So level 9 characters please.

Winner is best of 3 Last Man Standing.

He's yelling about X-com. His Medic was amazing, to hear tell, and it sounds like he lost him. Poor bugger.

You know, once you start getting ahead of a gym/physical education class by a full lap and a half on the track, you realize you're the only one trying harder to do well.

 

AWESOME!

 

Also, are there any good books out there? I'm making a list for my book club at school (I'm pretty much the only one suggesting books, and I'd like to read more)

How is you being left handed any less of an indication that you use the arrow keys more than the WASD keys?

He was making a perfectly innocent remark about keybindings and turn it into something lewd.

I always use the arrow keys...and I'm right handed! When I use the WASD keys I'm probably playing something that requires me to keep my hand hovering over the space bar.

 

It's kinda common here where I live to use the arrow keys, no matter if you're left or right handed, with the right hand. My left handed aunt still uses the arrow keys with her right hand.

 

Small correction of what I said about me using the arrow keys: that's only when I am at school. I don't really have arrow keys on my laptop

Ah but Alg, if he mainly used WASD then his arms would, normally, be under the same level of strain, as the Mouse and WASD are typically the same distance away from the body.

 

However, if you are using the Arrow Keys with your Left Hand you end up turning, increasing the strain on the right arm, while lessening the strain on your left arm.

 

While it is true that, if you use the Arrow Keys with your Right hand while your left hand manipulates the WASD keys, the opposite effect occurs, but the overall change in tension is several magnitudes smaller than using the Arrow Keys and Mouse.

 

Nero was just being even more intelligent than I first thought, but then he is Canadian, which is like Norwegian, but +America.

Thing is, I never don't use WASD, even when I'm not gaming, WASD are my left hand's "idle" keys, the arrow key's are only for browsing larger documents, at which point I use my right hand as the mouse is usually useless.

"Never don't" isn't bad English when it's intended as a double negative to enforce a positive, as it is stronger than saying always.

Double Negatives are always bad english.

Well, it's only one word, so it's not a double.

 

And it's not negative either.

Nevertheless = never(negative) the(binder) less(negative).

Meaning despite(negative) seeming(binder) otherwise(negative).

It's a synonym to still(positive).

Double negatives are not always bad English(Indeed they are generally good English), there are numerous examples:

'Its not unusual'

'I wouldn't say I don't like it'

'Its not infrequent'

'Thats not bad'

 

However:

Double Negatives that give an incorrect assessment 'I didn't do nothing'. Since its not conveying what you want it to.

Double Negatives that enforce an unqualified superlative 'Its not not Green'. It can't be more Green than Green, and can't have another meaning.

Double Negatives that are overly complex 'I never don't never do nothing'. Simply because they confuse people and have no other purpose.

Are all bad English.

 

Double negatives are permissable, only, when convey cunning nuances of meaning:

'She's not unattractive' has huge amount of ambigity surrounding it, you could be saying something postive or negative.

'It is not unusual' implies that it is the usual reaction, but is far more sympathetic than 'It was the usual reaction'

'Its not that I don't like your house' could mean 'I don't like your house but I am leaving anyway' or it could mean 'I do like your house but I think it should be painted green'

 

Nevertheless fits into the same catagory. 'Yes I think this, but I still think we should do this.'

 

 

 

However I still cannot see how "Never Don't" is stronger than "Always"?

Always means 100% of the time. Are you saying that 101% of the time you use the WASD keys? Because then you fail Maths...

 

If you were intentionally trying to trip people up then you are trolling, but using correct English.

If you were not trying to trip people up then you were using bad English, since there is no second context, but merely using an unqualified superlative.
