A faceless name
A Kuildeous is finally noone.

Jeez my avatar is OLD.  I don't even know where I originally found it, but I've been using it for online stuff ever since I started going by Haddock, which is more than a decade ago now.  Wouldn't want to change it.

I thought a Kuildeous was still a WanderingWinder?

Storytime:

My first foray into the online world was when I was 15 years old. A friend of mine showed me his modem and logged onto a BBS. So naturally I used it to create my first handle: Black Dragon. I then went to reading a room that was basically a dumping ground for people bitching at each other, including one woman who appropriately went by the name Bitch Cowgirl. So being this super-suave (spoiler alert: not) 15-year-old boy, I contributed fuck-all to the conversation by trying to woo this woman. My cheesy-ass winning line was, ďThey donít call me the Black Draggggggin for nothing.Ē

Later when I talked with one of the netizens, he said that he thought that was the funniest thing he read at the time and commended me on my brilliant trolling. I was too ashamed to tell him that I was sadly serious about it.

So there you go; first time online, and I went and sexually harassed someone. Kids are dumb.

I took Kuildeous later on in high school. Not that I ran into many Black Dragons online, but Kuildeous was far less likely to collide on another BBS.

Man. I had four strips of bacon yesterday. Was one automatically undercooked, one automatically overcooked? No, let's put a stop to that right here, all four strips were excellent.

I found this amazing article: http://www.riverfronttimes.com/musicblog/2015/01/28/six-reasons-musicians-dont-deserve-to-get-paid

I don't know why, but it's a hilariously written article. I'm pretty sure it is satire.

There is interestingly substance to most of those points, the conclusion just doesn't follow.

None of those things are truly valid reasons for musicians to not get paid, which is why it is hilarious. They may all be true, but they do not follow, as you say.

Itís a more subtle form of satire, which Iím a fan of. The responses are giving me a chuckle.

Now Iím just waiting to hear about some club owner showing this article to a band to justify not paying them.

He actually wrote a reply to mail he got regarding the article, which I found even funnier.

http://www.riverfronttimes.com/musicblog/2015/02/12/six-people-who-wish-i-were-dead

The only thing I don't like as much is that he revealed personal information about people, just because of the threat of doxxing.

I love the article title. it's such obvious clickbait considering it's the internet. I feel like this writer is writing on so many levels. I tweeted him yesterday, telling him his article was great. And I got a reply! He even lives in Minneapolis!

I'm so sick of the constant tons of Adventures cards that I am going to play from now on with bias towards every set but Adventures.

I can agree with the sentiment, if only because I think kingdoms with too many Adventures cards tend to get pretty crazy (I also prefer travelers to not show up every other game). By next year people will have moved on and Adventures should be in a more normal distribution.

I think that's the point. Since many people bias towards adventures, if you want to see all cards the same amount of times, you have to bias to everything else to even it out

That feeling when you were having a really interesting game, and your opponent is leading, and then they disconnect. :(  I feel bad for them!
