      Since your experience of being in the middle of a bank robbery, have you had any hesitation going into banks? Or being at registers in general?

      Answered: Sep 15, 2017

      Nope. It never really emotionally affected me in that way.

    • EricHVela asked Fly a question

      What is the biggest construction project that you participated -- any kind of construction, for any purpose?

      Answered: Sep 15, 2017

      My father and I constructed a wheelchair ramp for my grandfather after his surgery.

      Did one of these a month ago... and it did fairly well. Time for an update.


      Listening: Maylene and The Sons of Disaster - II

      Reading: A Game of Thrones

      Watching: Season 2 of Game of Thrones

      Gaming: Rainbow Six Siege and Slime Rancher

      Mobile: Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes



      What about you? What are you currently invested in?

      ... turn 30 years old. 

      Not a lot of big plans.

      Maybe get an iced mocha.

      Go to the chiropractor

      Have to take Ruby to her doctor's appointment

      Take Ru to my mom's that evening. 

      Read some of Game of Thrones

      Smoke a pipe.

      If I have time I might do a very quick impromptu twitch stream.  Possibly the Batman telltale games? Or fibbage?

    • Lamkia asked Fly a question

      I think a wile back you decided to stop drinking soda. Did you succeed? And if you did, were there any side affects or other differences you could feel?

      Answered: Aug 21, 2017

      I did quit. But started back up again recently... I need to quit again.


       I lost a bit of weight, I felt a bit healthier but not much else. My body went through the ringer for a while. Once it regulated after not needing the caffeine it felt... different. I didn't need the caffeine but I wasn't more energetic either. 

    • DrHairz asked Fly a question

      If you won the lottery how would you spend the money?

      Answered: Aug 21, 2017

      Depends on how much... 

      1. buy off the debt on the house we're in now. 

      2. Move into new bigger house within our price range

      3. New bigger vehicle (in case we have more kids.)

      4. College fund for Ru

      5. All the tattoos I can afford.

    • EricHVela asked Fly a question

      I had no choice but to go to the grocery store while very sick and I was excessively paranoid about getting *others* sick. Are you paranoid about Ru's health from people like me right now?

      Answered: Aug 21, 2017

      Not really. Kids get sick... It's something that happens. I'm not much of a worrier when it comes to that sort of thing. She does get pretty miserable when she's sick though... She just wants to be held. 

    • gi_goku asked Fly a question

      Can Fly use Fly attack?

      Answered: Aug 18, 2017

      Sadly no. He uses Meander until he hits level 30. Then he evolves into Flyreon. Then he can learn all da attacks.


      I hit level 30 in 6 days...

        After 7. And I can only play for maybe 2 matches. I strongly suggest the Arena game type... We should also round out our team of 5 with at least one or two Guardians and warriors with a couple of Hunters and Mages. I've been using Apollo (Hunter/ ranged DPS) and Ares (heavy Attucks with a decent buff) and Ymir (offensive tank)

        Give me one of those gods and I should be pretty good to go. Overall I've played Apollo the most...

      So if you hadn't noticed yet, Xur has Obsidian Mind. If you aren't busy i would appreciate some help in retrieving it, it sounded like a very good idea for my Warlock. Now, seeing as i only have 16 strange coins and have yet to do the weekly for those coins it would be best to complete on level 30 so i can aquire the 9 coins. If not, then i guess i wait a while longer for it, aaannnnd oh well...

    My father and I constructed a wheelchair ramp for my grandfather after his surgery.

    I did quit. But started back up again recently... I need to quit again.


     I lost a bit of weight, I felt a bit healthier but not much else. My body went through the ringer for a while. Once it regulated after not needing the caffeine it felt... different. I didn't need the caffeine but I wasn't more energetic either. 

    Depends on how much... 

    1. buy off the debt on the house we're in now. 

    2. Move into new bigger house within our price range

    3. New bigger vehicle (in case we have more kids.)

    4. College fund for Ru

    5. All the tattoos I can afford.

    Not really. Kids get sick... It's something that happens. I'm not much of a worrier when it comes to that sort of thing. She does get pretty miserable when she's sick though... She just wants to be held. 

    Can Fly use Fly attack?

    | Asked by: gi_goku 1 month ago

    Sadly no. He uses Meander until he hits level 30. Then he evolves into Flyreon. Then he can learn all da attacks.


    I hit level 30 in 6 days...

    I currently have 4 tattoos. I want so many more. 

    1. One representing Ruby, and adding 3 solid bands on my right arm. 

    2. Get the Yang symbol on my left shoulder... 

    3. Greg Capullo's Bat/Joker laughing  symbol. 

    1a61fb879db0a8964546663be7ea048e.jpg


    Etc, etc, etc

    I'd ask my mother why she always comes across as cold and emotionless. 

    I don't think I could do it. Ruby is at that age where she's making friends... Raising a child on Mars without any other kids would be terrible for her socially. 


    You know what Elton John says:

     Mars ain't the type of place to raise your kids.

    *cracks knuckles* 


    I thought you'd never ask. I know that she has a youtube account called Chez Lindsay and that she has a twitter account known as @TheLindsayEllis. She has also been known to go as "Nostalgia Chick" from what I've gathered from my sources(Google).


    She's actually rather cute when she... Well, isn't looking like this.

    giphy.gif

    Not really. I find that if you don't believe in superstitions and don't buy into the number 13, black cats, and walking under ladders nothing bad ever comes from it. 

    This isn't a question. But I'll answer it the best way I know how:

    Green?

    Mexico?

    Muhammad Ali?


    Hopefully that answered your question.

    I might check it out when I'm not so busy!

    Today? Yes. 

    Tomorrow? Yes.

    Anytime and anywhere. Every day of the week. 




    Wait? Am I a good guy or a bad guy? Still doesn't matter. Yes.

    Can you help me get a job?

    | Asked by: gi_goku 5 months ago

    Umm... Possibly? I might be able to get you a job in southern Illinois near St. Louis. But anywhere else might be a chore. I am willing to be a reference for you though. Althought most of those are supposed to be "professional" acquantances. 

    If we're talking about general honorifics I'd pick Duke or Earl (because of My Name Is Earl)


    But If it can be anything that I choose... it would have to be really awesome. Like The Hammer. Or He who was formally known as  barbara

    I prefer tanks. So Barbarians, Fighters, or Paladins. Although I am not opposed to playing something completely out of my comfort zone like Ranger, Rogue, Druid or even Bard...

    So here's the majority of my character sheet for my half-Orc barbarian.

    1004363-1479252257340-CaptureDD.PNG

    That was before I starting carving notches into my maul for kills...



    I just want to play D&D... I don't really care about what class or build...


    Nothing solid.


    Might not be this year... We'd have to travel with Ru or find someone able to watch her for the weekend and we haven't been away from home with or without her. 

    Goodnight Moon is one of her favorites. She likes Dr. Seuss books as well. Probably because she likes to listen to dad sound like an idiot. She just likes being read to. She gets this goofy smile on her face and relaxes.

    How are the workout sessions going?

    | Asked by: LCPeter 5 months ago

    Less frequent. Work has become a bummer that saps practically all of my energy while there. Ruby is constantly into everything and she has started climbing the couch, and I hurt my back pretty badly about a month ago. It's gotten better but it tends to act up pretty bad every once in a while.

    Heroic Adventures in Illinois. They're graphic novel/ trade paperback selection is immense. If they don't have it they can try to get it for you. If I had to choose I might pick The Secret Stash

    As far as myths go... Vampires have always felt real to me. It seems ridiculous but stories of vampires are spread every corner of the world... That freaks me out. How can thousands of different lands and cultures have similar stories about the same creature? 

    It has. But I don't really play betas that much. It seems interesting and I might jump on... I think the last beta I played was The Division. The last one before that was Destiny.

    Umm. Not really. St. Louis has some things I'm sure, but driving through St. Louis is a nightmare. We have an annual 4th of July weekend fair where all of the people I went to school with go to get drunk... about 45 minutes away there is an annual festival known as Strange Folk where different crafts and things are sold by craftmakers and artists. Kinda like an open air Etsy. That's pretty neat. 

    I don't. I listen to whatever. I mean that very seriously, not like that person in High School who says they like everything and then you make up a fake band name and they say "Oh I love them!" 


    I grew up around rockabilly: Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Roy Obrison, Hank Williams and Chuck Berry. Artists of that nature...

    But my grandma listened to Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. you know... Rat pack stuff. But she also listened to artists like Ray Charles, Quincy Jones and B.B. King

    I picked up on 70's era rock from my dad: Led Zeppelin, Tom Petty, The Doors, The Who, Hendrix, Joplin, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Queen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, CSN&Y, Elton John, Billy Joel and even some Beatles stuff.

    My mother loved the Rolling Stones, Bowie, Queen, Fleetwood Mac etc. 


    I found punk very intriguing after listening to The Clash. So I picked up stuff by the Sex Pistols, Ramones, Dead Kennedy's etc. Through that I found pop punk stuff (which I liked better than actual punk) So Fallout Boy, Lucky Boys Confusion, Rufio, Cartel, HelloGoodbye, Starting Line etc.


    Eventually I started talking to indie girls and seeing what they liked (mostly because I found them cute) That's how I found Ok Go, Mae, Copeland, Straylight Run, Something Corporate, Jack's Mannequin, Gavin Degraw etc. Also known to me as "piano rock"


    I started looking for something different and stumbled upon bands like Saosin, Atreyu, Every Time I Die, Maylene and The Sons of Disaster, Gallows, Norma Jean, Underoath, August Burns Red, Devil Wears Prada... etc.


    Not too long after that I started listening to hip hop. This one has stuck with me the most... Common, Twista, Old Kanye (first 3 albums only), Jay Z's Blueprint albums, Eminem, Kid Cudi, Wale, Drake, Childish Gambino, Lupe Fiasco, Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper, Future, MGK, Mac Miller, and a very little bit of Wiz. I don't smoke nearly enough pot for Wiz...


    But I still listen to everything. I just find that certain music fits certain moods and situations better.

    How are you the Keeper of Blades?

    | Asked by: DrHairz 7 months ago

    It's a bit of a joke. The Oxford Comma Cafe, my all time favorite forum on the site has a running gag of "initiating" our newcomers through a bit of a sacrifice.

    I jokingly gave a few of us that were in the original OCC (before the site switched over) a "Keeper" title. So I became the metaphorical "Keeper" of our sacrificial blade.


    TLDR: It's a dumb inside joke. Fear not.

    Ugh. This is a difficult question. Like very VERY difficult.

    I could go two routes here. and since I'm not quite sure on the way that the question is framed. I'll write both out.


    If I could adapt any comic series into a video game, I'd put together co-op version of an X-men game. You and up to three friends have to fight the Mutant Brotherhood to stop them from yada yada yada. The more players you have, the more devastating combos you can perform. Fastball Special anyone? Trick being you will encounter tougher and smarter enemies with more people in the game. Imagine an X-men game like Diablo/Borderlands. Of course, this game has already been done in the form of X-Men Legends. I'd just really like a remaster or even a new game in this style.


    If I could adapt any comic arc or storyline I'd put together a two campaign single player game. In the Civil War storylines. You pick a side: Team Cap or Team Iron Man and play as various team members in various missions. Either freeing or capturing renegade super powered beings. You would have the ability to "command" other super powered individuals on your side kinda like Mass Effect: Go here, use this power, flank enemies from that side, etc.

    Anytime I meet or chat with a community member. It is so surreal to me that I can hardly believe it. Almost two years ago I went down to Memphis and met two community members there and had a fantastic time. That also happened to be the weekend after my wife and I's successful IUI attempt. 

    Since then I've played D&D with community members, chatted over Skypee, and played online games with them. I've noticed and been noticed RT merch 'in the wild' and had a couple of quick conversations about how they happened to find RT.


    So, in short, the coolest thing about being an RT fan is meeting the community members.

    Master's Degrees - worth it?

    | Asked by: Ratatoskr 7 months ago

    I would say yes in the long run... I never went to college, but I know there are areas and jobs in my plant that I am not able to apply for because I don't have a degree. 

    Hmm. Using a straw or a sippy cup is pretty high on the list! She can also squeeze food from a pouch into her mouth all by herself. She's been walking since the very tail end of 9 months. And 'talking' quite a bit! 

    I've sorta been on a hiatus only because party prep for Ru's birthday is underway. I'll get back on schedule once I have more free time! 

    I think the games are accurate to an extent. Arkham Asylum and Arkham City for sure. Both of those were written by Paul Dini, who was a writer for many, many episodes of Batman The Animated Series.  The action in the games is very fluid, but something difficult to capture in any medium is just how smart Batman is. The games push you to use "Detective Mode" and lens filters on said mode. 


    I don't know if we'll have many more Batman games to be honest. Rocksteady finished their trilogy, Telltale's about to wrap up their series (If they haven't already). There's always Lego Batman I guess...


    I think the most accurate Batman is Affleck. He has the physicality, the fluidity... We just need more detective work, less killing, and more Batman bringing the hurt on bad guys. He's so brutal...

    I strongly doubt it. While the MCU is connected to the shows on Netflix and Agents of Shield... I HIGHLY doubt we're going to see Daredevil, The Punisher, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Robbie Reyes, Deathlok, etc, etc, etc.


    Why? Because all of these are lesser known characters that might seem like risks in the movie universe. Look at the failures these names have brought upon the Marvel name in the past: Daredevil, The Punisher, Ghost Rider... While they're doing great now, on Netflix... I don't think they'll translate very well to the cinema. 

    For instance... Getting my stepdad to watch Iron Man was like pulling teeth. When he watched it, though... He loved it. He liked Captain America The First Avenger until Hydra's blue laser beam cannons. 


    He hasn't watched another one since. Now place yourself in the shoes of every person who hasn't dedicated 52 hours of their life to watch Daredevil season 1 and 2, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage. They know practically nothing of these characters... While Netflix is giving them a perfect platform to show you 13 hours of what makes that character tick, a 2 hour movie would have to be EXTREMELY well written. and while Bog Iger said "If these characters become popular enough, they might get their own movies" I don't see them getting that popular.


    Go ask your 6 year old cousin who their favorite superhero is. Now go ask your 85 year old grandma. Are they Daredevil or Ghost Rider? Probably not. Marvel is owned by Disney and you have to see that they're looking at this like a business, not comic book fans. 


    Would it be amazing to see? Of course!


    Would I love to see it? Absolutely


    But Will it happen? Probably not. Sorry to crush your hopes and dreams... but I don't see it in the 'bigger picture'

    Top 5 Christmas films... Prepare yourself for a VERY unorthodox list.


    5. Home Alone: I was never a fan of Macaulay Culkin... But was a big fan of Joe Pesci. I have no idea why... But seeing a kid set traps that, in todays world, would end with him being sent to Guantanamo sounds like a Christmas classic to me! 

    4. Harry Potter Series: I always found it odd that I loved watching the Harry Potter movies during Christmas time... but I guess it makes sense. There seems to be either Christmas presents being exchanged or Snow in just about every one of them... 

    3. Muppet's A Christmas Carol: I love the Muppets. End of story

    2. Gremlins: Ah... Mogwais... Gotta love em! 

    1. Die Hard and Die Hard 2: If you don't watch Die Hard every year on Christmas Eve... You cannot hang with my family. This movie is tradition. 


    I assume you could make a human Fighter or Rogue with really high STR, CON, WIS, and DEX. You can either buy some black clothes or take the Criminal background and they're given to you... Take proficiency in Stealth, Perception, Intimidation, Athletics and Acrobatics... I guess technically you could make a Batman-esque character. It would probably help if you rolled all 18's though.


    and I'm going to bet we are! Eric and Lance are down... we seem to have pinned Ooaul into our group (as a bard) as well. I'll assume you're going to be there as well... and I'll (most likely) arrive fashionably late as always.

    Dang... That's a tough one. I'd like to wait for Ruby to be old enough to at least remember some of it. But what I really want to do is have all 3 of us go backpacking through Europe together... Problem being, I'd want her to be in her late teens... and I don't think she'd have a great time backpacking through Europe with her parents. I can remember being 15-18 and not wanting to be around my parents. Hopefully we can head off the "I hate my parents" stage.

    I haven't seen that many actually. In no particular order...

    I saw:

    Deadpool

    Batman V Superman

    Civil War

    Bad Moms 

    Suicide Squad

    Jungle Book & 

    X-Men Apocalypse


    I think my least favorite was Suicide Squad... But I still liked it.

    Do you want a real explanation? Or a fake one? Because I can bring a fake one to the table...


    Fake explanation: Baytor, a demon from the underworld being released, enslaved all of Gotham using mind control and turned everyone in the city into squawking speakers in order to glorify himself and to throw off the character invoking God's Wrath in all of the continuities and timelines and earths in the DC Universe in the sole attempt of redeeming their earthly form to rid themselves of all of the evil done in their past lives... (A.K.A. The Spectre)

    the-spectre.jpg



    Real explanation: Baytor is a demon from the DC Universe.

    Baytor_02.jpg

    I believe he even ruled Hell at one point in time... Problem being Baytor doesn't have much of a vocabulary... His main focus being the words "I" "am" and almost always followed by a "Baytor". Sure the man of few words has said other things... but these are the most frequent.


    Remind you of someone?

    post-58050-I-am-Groot-smiling-gif-Imgur-


    Anyway... The Spectre (Also known as one of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe and he also happens to be God's Wrath Incarnate) happened to be in Gotham at the same time as Baytor. So, Baytor, being a demon and being a not-so-good individual was approached (along with three of his 'friends') by The Spectre on the sole mission of removing the demon spirit from Earth...

    tt7iptca3xqswpb4dd4s.pngProblem is The Spectre didn't have any idea what Baytor actually looked like. So The Spectre approached the four and asked "Which of you is Baytor?" 

    Baytor being the one with the vocabulary limited to not much more than "I am Baytor" spilled the beans. Then one of his buddies said:

    pttc6bm00sz9vyncqmyz.png

    At this point other Gothamites started shouting "I am Baytor!" To keep The Spectre from taking the demon... Even Bats:

    mbic1z2j3jbkf2w6atww.png


    Why you may ask... I don't really know... But I do know that Batman and The Spectre aren't on the best terms.

    Get the point?

    Her actually talking. She says 'Dada' when she sees me, 'Mama' when she's upset or hungry, and 'Baba' when she gets a bottle. But I honestly cannot wait for her to string together a sentence like "I love you Daddy" 

    5. Assassins Creed

    4. Saints Row series

    3. Batman Arkham series

    2. Any Telltale game

    1. Mass Effect series

    I think a lot of it has to do with how far people take it... 


    I believe "fandom" has to do with someone loving something openly (sometimes extremely so). Thoroughly enjoying everything they get from it. The enthusiasm while partaking in whatever it may be is different than say an 'obsession'

    I see an obsession as taking things too far. Like 


    Let's say a 'fan' and an 'obsessive' both watch RWBY.


    The fan might put off some social or other engagements on Saturday so they can see the newest episode of RWBY when it airs.


    An obsessive might watch shut out the entire world while watching RWBY while cosplaying their favorite character and having their name legally changed to "Ruby Rose" and fall in love with Juane De Arc. And want to marry him in a RWBY themed wedding, and havy little baby Hunters and Huntresses... You get the point.


    The difference can be very difficult to find. Obviously my examples are extremes...


    TLDR; Fans really like something and enjoy it. Sometimes to the point of elitism. Obsessives take it to the point where they eat, sleep, breathe and live something. It's something you cannot survive without.

    It's very difficult to think of a fairy tale or legend that hasn't already been told... But I've always been a fan of mythology. Disney tried with Hercules, but I wouldn't mind seeing more Greek mythology... Or maybe even some Egyptian mythology made into a movie...


    And The Lion King was based off of Hamlet I believe...

    I do play games, although, not as much as I once did due to being a parent.


    I think my all around favorite would be the Mass Effect Trilogy.

    What would I wish my employment to be...


    Window repair man. So many windows get broken...


    Is there such a thing as Superhero Destruction Insurance? Ooo. Or a contractor. As long as buildings are getting destroyed, there's always going to need to be someone to keep putting them up.

    Well, I saw your post in the OCC against The Hulk. As far as I know absorbption would be very difficult. The Hulk's skin is impenetrable (depending on what storyline you follow). 


    In DC there is a villain known as Starro. I gigantic starfish that has babies that attach themselves to people. When attached Starro takes control of that persons mind. Those 'infected' gain the same abilities as the person pre-starfish/facehugger. There have been countless times Starro 'turned' many members of the JLA.

    ComiClash.php_.jpg

    It would be very interesting if The Thing took over Starro... *shudders*


    I can't really answer for Marvel... I don't know if they have a similar thing or not. 


    There was at one time a comic series based off of the John Carpenter movie but that was in the early 90's I believe...

    My advice would be to start at the beginning! In 2011 DC relaunched fifty two new titles and dubbed it The New 52. For starters I would recommend Batman The Court of Owls Vol 1 (New 52), Action Comics vol 1.  And for something completely awesome, DC Comics: Bombshells Enlisted. It is just female superheroes set in World War 2 era. It's an interesting take. 

    If DC isn't your groove I would recommend Marvel's Civil War, Old Man Logan, Deadpool written by Brian Posehn, and the X-men run written by Joss Whedon. 


    If superheroes aren't your digs I recommend looking into Image comics: The Walking Dead (black and white so the gore is turned down... but graphic language), Nailbiter (gory but an amazing story), and Saga (Graphic gore, sex, violence, everything... but possibly the best writing in comics right now.)


    Send me a PM and I'll give you a list of where to start!

    I've always been a fan of fantasy stuff... So somewhere along the lines of Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley most likely.

    Do you have a favourite sport?

    | Asked by: LCPeter 9 months ago

    Hockey. I like "North American" football, and basketball as well.

    This question took me a month to answer. Are you happy!? And I still don't have a clear answer for you...


    There are lots of comic book heroes I'd love to see on the big screen. But there is one idea I've been thinking about for a while now. I've seen two fan theories that Cable and Deathstroke should be played by Jon Hamm.

    Jon-Hamm-Black-Mirror-Cable-1200x881.jpg

    Well Joe Manganiello has already been cast as Deathstroke... but if someone at WB was smart, they'd pick up Jon Hamm to play The Question. A gritty noir tale about an OCD shizophrenic that believes every conspiracy theory that he crosses paths with... and wears a mask to make him look like a faceless man.

    the-question-new-52-2.jpg


    Hmm. The year after I graduated high school I asked my mother (an English teacher) for graphic novels. She bought me Batman Long Halloween, Batman Year One and The Watchmen. She's partially the reason I'm into graphic novels/ trade paperbacks. 

    She also bought me a kindle... which I was using until fairly recently. 


    I don't like to think of presents as 'the worst'... But if I had to pick it would be along the lines of socks (Which I've come to enjoy in my 'older' age)
