Having an avatar makes it look like you're a member of the community, rather than someone who just joined and is making a few quick posts.

I think my 3500+ posts may be a dead giveaway.

I know, not everyone is going to look, but yeesh. I don't normally bother with avatars.

The best avatars are either a painting of you or dominion art.

I'm going to explain the joke here because especially new people won't pick up on this:  Tables is Sir Martin.

He also eats tables.

Tables may have Martin in his name, but he is not Sir Martin. I don't think Sir Martin has an account here. Sir Destry does.

You can order a shot of espresso to be added.

I think latte is an acceptable truncation of caffelatte but otherwise, yes, means "with milk". Chai certainly denotes milk but also some spices, no? cardamom, cinnamon and ginger IIRC.

Chai just means tea.

I am also amused by garbanzo beans. Garbanzo means chickpea.

Kind of in the sense that they both have beards.
Sir Martin looks much better though.

Should I get an avatar?


If you don't, then someone will yell at you to choose an avatar. That's how I got this one.

I forgot who yelled at me. Was it Silverspawn? I want to say it was Silverspawn.

Pretty sure it was me. Anyways the argument you posed regarding judgement and avatars was the reason you took it down (and still basically have it down for all intents and purposes)

I sit corrected.  Somehow I had gotten the idea that they were the same person.

So I was aware of a game called Kingdom Hearts, and I knew it was Disneyed, which may explain why it never really made a serious blip on my radar.

But I've seen claims that it's a really amazing game –even possibly the best video game of all time.

Is it really that great, I ask of the people who are probably younger and hipper than me. I still have my PS3, so it should be a very simple purchase if I decide to go that route.

And for the sake of getting my wife involved, does it have spiders?

I understand that spiders are super cute and all, but not wanting to get involved with anything that doesn't have spiders sounds a bit extreme.

I have not played any Kingdom Hearts game. I watched my housemate play an early part of the first Kingdom Hearts game once. It looked super boring.

I got into it when I was a teenager and a bit more impressionable, but yes it's fun.

The battle system in the first game looks less impressive than the battle system in later games.

They can be a bit easy in that on regular difficulties you can mash the attack button and end up winning anyways.

I just realised that you can take a Ferry in order to Inherit a Crown, which then lets you Counterfeit your Estates. The thematic implications are doing my head in.

Does saying "Everything I say is false" imply that some things I say are true? My gut tells me yes but it's really funky.

This sentence is a paradox, thus anything involving it is meaningless.  It doesn't even make sense to talk about anything when you assume that saying "Everything I say is false" is possible.

It is possible. I just tried and I could say it just fine, although my pronunciation might not have been perfect.

According to my logic classes, it's effectively word salad. It's syntactically correct, but not meaningful, like "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously".

My thinking was involved. using Reductio Ad Absurdum on the statement "Some things I say are true". If you negate that you get "No things I say are true", and if you say that you get a contradiction, proving the orginal statement.

I'm guessing that this is just pseudo-logic. It sounds logical but it makes no logicao sense.

Well it does in the same sense that anything can be derived from a contradiction. Saying "I am four years old and I'm also not four years old" implies I am four years old, I'm not four years old, the moon is made of cheese, and unicorns are real.

My thinking was involved. using Reductio Ad Absurdum on the statement "Some things I say are true". If you negate that you get "No things I say are true", and if you say that you get a contradiction, proving the orginal statement.

I'm guessing that this is just pseudo-logic. It sounds logical but it makes no logicao sense.

But this argument works independently of whether you started with the statement "Everything I say is false". You're just proving that, in general, "some things I say are true" always holds; it's a tautology. If you also say "Everything I say is false", now you just get a contradiction, because that sentence is always a contradiction; it's (logically equivalent to) the negation of a tautology.
