#1368086 The Cooking Thread

Posted by raubhimself on 22 September 2017 - 08:53 AM

i consider myself a pretty decent cook, but i just cannot get scrambled eggs to come out how i want them :(

Whenever I make scrambled eggs I mix them in a bowl with a little bit of milk (or usually half and half since I don't usually have milk). Put a shitload of butter in a pan and then dump the eggs in on a low heat. Continually scrape the bottom of the pan as they cook and the eggs will come out nice and moist. 


DO NOT use vanilla almond milk  :wacko:

My one-eyed cat's name is Odin because he has one eye.

The only difference between starting classes is 1. what their starting stats are and 2. what their starting equipment is. Other than that there is no differences between them. You can find all the starting gear sets throughout the game so your knight could find the leather armor set and be not a knight anymore. Don't get too hung up on armor ratings. The difference between say the leather armor and knight set is not really all that great.

There are no more bounties that you grab from anyone. Each planet has 3 daily challenges you can complete for ~2 tokens and maybe some loot each. There are also 3 daily challenges for casual crucible, competitive crucible, and strikes. 


The planetary ones range from "defeat X number of Y type of enemies" to "collect 10 of whatever this planet's materials are" to "do a public event". The crucible ones are generally fairly easy. The ones that are like "kill 15 guardians with an arc/solar/void final blow" can be from class abilities or weapons, so just equip an SMG or auto rifle of that element and go wild.

I saw a panel at PhxCC a few years back with Len Wein and Chris Claremont. It was supper interesting. I don't think Len Wein was even supposed to be on it originally but he was there so they just shot the shit for an hour and it was great.

#1366744 What games are you playing now?

Posted by raubhimself on 04 September 2017 - 02:47 PM

It's pretty good! I'm like halfway through the third world. There are some battles that are annoying until you figure out how you have to approach them, but that's all tactics games, I suppose.

#1366733 Twin Peaks

Posted by raubhimself on 04 September 2017 - 11:18 AM

I'm not mad, but worse, I feel no real strong emotions about this season and especially the ending. I have seen a lot of people saying things like "but it's a horror story" as a reaction to any criticism as if it being a "horror" story absolves it from any of its issues. I don't even think it is horror. Twin Peaks has always had some horror elements, but more so it's been mystery, drama, Americana, soap, and many other things. This season just felt nothing like the first two seasons to me. It had vignettes of things I liked but I was really hoping things would tie together more. The RR diner, Ed and Norma, Nadine and Dr. Jacoby, Audrey Horne, Jerry Horne, Shelly and her daughter, etc, so much of that stuff just feels shoehorned in with no real meaning or resolution other than that they existed previously, and here they are at present. And a lot of those things were my favorite parts of this season as it was happening, so I'm just disappointed that there was not much purpose to it all. The other thing I see a lot of people say is "it's Lynch, what do you expect?" Basically I expected something that felt more like the first two seasons instead of something apart from them. 


The ending didn't do much for me either, especially compared to the season 2 ending. The season 2 ending had just enough resolution and just enough questions remaining to make it compelling and something you could think about how it might play out if that weren't the end. This ending? Are they in the past? The future? What about all those ancillary characters that were just left lingering? It just does not make me care all that much and was way too similar of a shocker, but didn't land the same way. 


I didn't hate it, it just didn't have much of what I liked about the first two seasons.

This was the first thing I saw today after I woke up and looked at my phone. Celebrity deaths don't usually get to me but this one definitely put me in a funk all day.

Check out coffee dad (@coffee_dad): https://twitter.com/coffee_dad?s=09

Coffee dad is my favorite twitter account. Normally he just tweets about getting coffee, drinking coffee, thinking about coffee, and other coffee related tweets. But occasionally he will tweet about his son's death which has been a slowly unraveling plot for multiple years.
