Thank you.

I often quote myself. It adds spice to my conversation.

That's going to be quite a surprise to someone who wants a book of equipment from the lower TLs.

I dread the day Icelander gets a job at CCP, because then my favorite online game will get...even weirder than it is already.

Don't transparent metallic skating surfaces require excessively high amounts of x-rays?

I am much amused by Icelander. I particularly like the part about the portion of the tribe who is never happy about anything. As they seem to exist in any hobby, game, or other pass time.

Random aside
What I dont get about forum usage is the people who chime in with "just let it drop" or "who cares" because generally the people discussing the correct way to "modelling armour penetration" while mumbling to each other seem to be quite happy with said mumblings.

Well, yeah, but how many people would really want something like that?

Seriously? Dude, if you pick up a book called GURPS Low-Tech, and you expect it to be anything other than a book about figure skating and similar ice follies, I think we can all agree exactly where the blame lies. I mean, it's called Low-Tech. That's pretty obviously a book about cabaret chicks on ice.
YES THIS IS A JOKE. (captioning provided for the irony-impaired)

As in "low-temperature", "low-friction", and "low-cut."

Seriously, if GURPS CCoI isn't available on the site in the next six months, I think my heart will break.
