    I don't know about the Italian saying, but in Hebrew "golden hands" means someone who either improves everything he involved himself in, and/or someone who is capable of fixing anything. Similar to Midas who turned everything to gold.

    You could say... HANDY.

    Michael pls, sai's are a bludgeoning weapon. Play more dnd!

      Actually, a sai could be used to bludgeon and/or pierce depending on how you use it. I prefer a mix of defensive and offensive techniques that focus on blocking, disarming, and piercing attacks that uses little bludgeoning. The way they are shown is usually as a bludgeoning weapon because that is one of the easiest ways to use it and the safest for the wielder in combat because you don't have to get in close enough to stab your opponent.

      They are difficult weapons to use but when watching a master it's fucking beautiful and dnd (though the most amazing/fun/creatively hilarious game in the world) does not do them justice.

      But it's awesome that at least someone knows what sais are.  smile

    Gavin isn't wrong, but to be fair, I'm sure not too many people remembered them as Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles.

    Is it weird that I also cheered when they announced James and he walked on stage?  I just love that guy.  His last episode of Off Topic is one of my favorite episodes ever.  He is just a perfect foil for Gavin.  This is now one of my new favorite episodes.  Wish I could have been there.

    Them talking about cleaning up their shit reminds me of staying in the college dorms. Flushing and cleaning up after one's self is sadly a lost art. 

    Moral is: people are absolute animals if they don't clean up after themselves.


    Edit: not kidding, just walked in the bathroom and there was like compressed toilet paper clogging the toilet. No shit or piss, and it was folded really tidy-like, so someone had to have done it deliberately.

    I almost died at a bachelor party for not being able to say "Betty Botter made some batter, but she said 'This batter's bitter. If I bought some better butter, it would make my batter better.' So she bought some better butter, but it made her batter worse."


    I memorized it because I had to retry saying it so many times...

    God, speaking of shit stuff, moving back to North Carolina from Kyoto ruined my ass. Japan shits were nice and regular, one a morning that all came out. Coming back here, I shit when the hell ever. Never all comes out at once either, always having to shit the same turd over like three different shit sessions. It's the damn worst.


    Bought myself a bidet as well when I came back. Japan taught me that using toilet paper to clean your ass is for fucking savages. Went 25 years wiping my ass like it was the only way to clean up after a shit. Lies. There is a far better, cleaner feeling way.

      It was "Hero" in Europe because there was a problem saying Ninja. In america it was "Ninja" I lived in Germany and would see "Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles", then we moved back here to the states and suddenly it was "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles".

    So for future reference Geoff. I've heard those toilets nicknamed ski hills in plumbing circles. Because you are supposed to put a toilet paper down BEFORE you shit. So when your shit lands it has a little sledge to go for a ride on. Little secrets of the Plumbing world :D

      That's some terrible toilet design. "Ohhh no. Oh no no no no need to get to the toilet right now! Oop, almost forgot to properly prepare the bowl before I- *loud, squelchy fart sounds*... shit."


      I'm just saying. When you're in need, additional prep time is the last thing you're looking for.

      My cat is 13 years old, she's been an outdoor cat all her life and she's the most chill cat you'll ever meet, she never bit or scratched anyone, she very rarely brings in mice to eat cause if she eats them outside other cats might threaten to take it from her but she always cleans after herself and it's like nothing even happened. I think if your cat gets weird when you let her out that's just your cat being weird, normal cats don't do that. And I'd rather not have a depressed cat, which is likely to happen if you only keep her inside.

    Having James Buckley on is always great, just for the simple fact that he calls Gavin out on his bullshit.
