There's a couple of raid chats and discord groups around town. We met a guy who was 0-15 until he finally got the blue pidgeon last night.

Re: ITT: We make xkcd slightly worse.

Grease also floats, burning grease doubly so. So if a fire starts, the first instinct is to throw water on it, which just spreads the flames.

Smother a grease fire. Use an extinguisher. Hell, throw a shitload of salt on it. Don't throw water.

Re: I think I need to stop smoking.

In my experience? Two years before it becomes disgusting to smell, but the six month mark was when it started to get easier. But honestly, if you can do one month, you can do six. If you can do six months, you can do the rest of your life.

Much like in video games, when a new one comes out it gets it's own thread, but if it becomes a discussion on the series as a whole, it gets mashed together if it seems reasonable.
