Q: Why can't I equip the "Hunter's Vest"?

StrixVariaI just made a "Hunter's Vest", but the game didn't ask me to automatically equip it. When I went to my stash to try to equip manually, I got this message. Your Hunter Type can't use this equipment. What does that mean? Why can't I use the armor I just bought? Is there any way to tell when t...

Q: What are "slots" in items?

StrixVariaEvery equippable item in the game seems to have "slots". There are 3 symbols, and the ones I have seen so far are a circle or a dash. It looks like a circle is an open "slot" and a dash is the non-existence of a slot, but I can't be sure. What are these "slots" for?

Q: How to get Reisminimap waypoints from inside the .minecraft folder

user44675So I read this Where does Rei's Minimap store your waypoints? And I did what it said, but when I tried to open the POINTS files it either said it was empty or it wasnt supported. Please help.

I am stuck in Luigi's Mansion already :(

@Ullallulloo "Critics have pointed out that a square flapjack has more sharp corners than a triangle shaped one."
 
user15026
"This is not the first time flapjacks have been banned for being a risk."
 
user15026
WHAT
 
@AshleyNunn Supposedly they were banned from cabinet meetings in the UK, although there's no good sources on that.
 
12:34 AM
I know kids across the board have gradually become more stupid ... But managing to hurt others with flapjacks? ... Good lord.
 
user15026
@FEichinger I don't even see how you could cause any sort of serious injury with a pancake.
 
user15026
A flapjack is a sweet tray-baked oat bar made from rolled oats, butter, brown sugar and golden syrup. This dish is found in the United Kingdom, Ireland and also in Australasia, but known there as a "cereal bar". In other countries, including Canada, the United States, and South Africa, flapjack refers to a form of pancake, and similar products are referred to as "granola bars". Overview In the UK, Ireland, and Newfoundland a flapjack is a baked bar, cooked in a flat oven tin and cut into rectangles, made from rolled oats, fat (typically butter), brown sugar and usually golden syrup. ...
 
Supposedly "flapjack" is UKnoid for granola bar.
 
user15026
Unless that is what they mean
 
user15026
and even so
 
12:35 AM
Obviously they mean UK flapjacks not US flapjacks ...
 
user15026
@FEichinger I didn't know that flapjacks were different
 
@FEichinger I've never heard of UK flapjacks before.
 
...
 
user15026
I can't imagine a granola bar being a terribly effective weapon
 
I'm just gonna cry in a corner for a couple of minutes.
 
12:36 AM
That would have disappointed me so much if I went to eat out for breakfast in the UK.
 
user15026
@FEichinger pats, gives tissues
 
user15026
@Ullallulloo I know, right?
 
@AshleyNunn Depending on how crispy they make them, they can be pretty hard hitters.
 
@FEichinger Sorry that we don't know every foreign food, especially when we already have one named that.
 
And if you do get one in the eye ... That hurts like hell.
 
user15026
12:37 AM
@FEichinger I suppose so. Although cutting them into bars just means more sharp corners, yeah?
 
@Ullallulloo The article even has a photo of them, though!
 
user15026
I just think the fact that the issue is with the shape is silly
 
user15026
@FEichinger tbh, I didn't get the photo to load
 
@FEichinger Which is the only reason I realized.
@FEichinger Anything can hit people hard. You cannot ban everything.
 
@AshleyNunn Well, the smaller angles can, for instance, penetrate deeper.
@Ullallulloo Did I say I agree with the decision? I'd be hella pissed if I got a flapjack in the eye.
 
12:39 AM
@FEichinger I'd be angry if I got anything in the eye.
 
But that's it.
@Ullallulloo 'xactly.
 
One reason I'm really glad I have perfect eyesight so I don't have to wear contacts. :P
 
There was this one time I got a weighted tennis ball in the eye ... from 50m away.
 
"We often come across half-baked decisions taken in the name of health and safety, but this one takes the biscuit.
 
@FEichinger Was it a triangular tennis ball?
 
12:40 AM
@Coronus No, it was in fact a round one. But tennis balls are mean.
 
@FEichinger Yes. I have never met a tennis ball that showed me the least amount of mercy.
 
50. Meters. Away. ... How people manage to aim like that, I do not know.
 
user15026
I have been hit with so many things in the face, and various other bits of me - my body seems to fail to understand the command "Move the hell away!"
 
@AshleyNunn en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Flapjacks.jpg <- Cut these in triangles and slam them into your face, sharp corner front. That's dangerous, girl!
 
user15026
@FEichinger Yes, but so are squares, rhomboids, and any other pointed shape ever.
 
user15026
12:43 AM
Why are we slamming them into faces is likely a better question.
 
I'm having spring onion flatbread for breakfast
 
@AshleyNunn As I said: Kids are getting stupider every day.
 
Well, I think flatbread is an adequate description
@FEichinger Because you keep smacking them with flapjacks
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone No, we don't!
 
user15026
@YiJiang'sEvilClone That sounds yummy
 
user15026

> Am I not sucking correctly?

user15026
That is a phrase I never thought I would put in a question, ever.
 
@AshleyNunn > TEXT <-- Mind the gap.
 
You lost me at "sucking on the ceiling fan"... >_<
 
user15026
@Coronus giggles What can I say, I like what I like.
 
TIL that you can't make platonic solids soley out of regular hexagons or more complex polygons because they can tessallate.
 
12:51 AM
"Innuendo Mania" so has to be a thing ...
 
user15026
@Ullallulloo I am going to pretend that those were words that I understood.
 
user15026
@FEichinger Meep? Are you referring to me?
 
@AshleyNunn No, of course not.
 
@AshleyNunn Soccer balls are broken.
In geometry, a hexagon (from Greek ἕξ hex, "six" and γονία, gonía, "corner, angle") is a polygon with six edges and six vertices. A regular hexagon has Schläfli symbol {6}. The total of the internal angles of any hexagon is 720°. Hexagonal structures From bees' honeycombs to the Giant's Causeway, hexagonal patterns are prevalent in nature due to their efficiency. In a hexagonal grid each line is as short as it can possibly be if a large area is to be filled with the fewest number of hexagons. This means that honeycombs require less wax to construct and gain lots of strength under compre...
 
user15026
@FEichinger I suspect that is a lie.
 
12:53 AM
They no fold good.
 
@Ullallulloo I don't think soccer balls are meant to be folded.
 
user15026
@Ullallulloo Ah, the pictures help :)
 
But then again, I'm not a sports person.
 
Okay, at these prices I might as well buy my own paint and stencil the design on the shirt myself rather than buying it
 
12:54 AM
@AshleyNunn The probability of this statement being true approaches 1.
 
@FEichinger What if you want to make your own soccer ball out of polygons?
 
user15026
@YiJiang'sEvilClone What do you want to make?
 
@Ullallulloo Why would I do that?
I'd emulate a hexagon, simple as that.
 
user15026
@FEichinger Better answer, why not?
 
@FEichinger I don't know. I don't play soccer.
 
12:55 AM
... So, we're discussing something we have no involvement in for ... what reason?
 
@AshleyNunn Twilight butt tattoo design. The "official" one from WeLoveFine is US$25 excluding shipping, and they couldn't even get the color of the shirt right
 
user15026
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Link, because I suspect what I am imagining is not even remotely right.
 
user15026
@FEichinger Because folding and soccer balls.
 
@AshleyNunn WHY WOULD YOU FOLD SOCCER BALLS?!?!!??!?!?!?
 
user15026
@FEichinger Why not?
 
12:57 AM
@FEichinger Soccer balls was just an interesting byproduct.
 
@AshleyNunn What would be the benefit of it?
 
user15026
@FEichinger Compact, easy to store!
 
@FEichinger How would I know? I don't play soccer.
 
I was trying to predict how many sides larger dice would have, but you can only go up to 12 like that.
 
facepalm
 
user15026
12:58 AM
@Ullallulloo So octagons don't fold either?
 
@AshleyNunn no
 
user15026
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Wow, that purple is so wrong
 
@AshleyNunn Don't try to make a soccer ball out of stop signs. It won't work.
 
user15026
@Ullallulloo Weeeeird. Shapes are bizarre.
 
user15026
12:58 AM
@Ullallulloo Awwwwww there goes my evening of FUN
 
Because for goodness sake if you're going to sell a shirt for $25 at least get the color right
 
@Ullallulloo Of course not, because stop signs are large and metal.
 
In geometry, an octagon (from the Greek ὀκτάγωνον oktágōnon, "eight angles") is a regular polygon that has eight sides. A regular octagon is represented by the Schläfli symbol {8}. Regular octagon A regular octagon is a closed figure with sides of the same length and internal angles of the same size. It has eight lines of reflective symmetry and rotational symmetry of order 8. The internal angle at each vertex of a regular octagon is 135° and the sum of all the internal angles is 1080° (as for any octagon). The area of a regular octagon of side length a is given by :A = 2 \cot \frac{\pi...
@Coronus Soccer might be more interesting if soccer balls were large and metal.

@Ullallulloo I don't think the cuboctahedron would be fun to play with

Q: How do I get the Strobulb?

Ashley NunnI realize that the strobulb is on the chandelier, and I can get the chandelier to go down by sucking on the ceiling fan, so then I run down and try to suck the strobulb off the chandelier from the bottom floor when it is lowered...and nothing seems to work. Am I just not sucking properly? How do ...

 
@Lazers ^_^
 
For around $10 I should be able to get two bottles of T-shirt paint from the crafts store
 
@AshleyNunn That's a truncated cuboctahedron.
 
user15026
@Ullallulloo Extra not fun to play with. Pointy. And would take your eyes out
 
not this:
I don't know why.
 
user15026
1:02 AM
These are mesmerizing
 
@Ullallulloo It's the triangles. Did you know that they're banned in the UK now?
 
@Coronus Clearly for good reason. Someone could get hit in the eye.
 
user15026
@Coronus Triangles. So dangerous.
 
@AshleyNunn Triangles. Not even once.
 
user15026
@Ullallulloo dies
 
1:04 AM
At least we're doing something about potential weaponry!
Look at the US, they can't even get real weaponry right!
 
if triangles are banned in the uk, does that mean iron man 2 is also banned?
 
This, my friends, makes it perfectly clear why we should demand truncated cuboctahedron flapjacks.
 
@SimonL Imports aren't affected. The new ban is only on local products.
 
Home time. Good night everyone.
 
user15026
@SaintWacko Why does like every candy say "карамель", even when they seem nothing alike? (both an apple hard candy, a weird chocolate with an even stranger filling, and a weird creamy thing)

This is what happens when you kill a mosquito with the back of one of those university admission advertisements
 
user15026
@YiJiang'sEvilClone yuck.
 
The blood adds a nice touch to the statement
Yesterday night I found out that DS emulators have gotten good enough that I can play Advanced Wars DS on my computer
Today is going to be so unproductive
 
user15026
@YiJiang'sEvilClone A very creepy statement
 
user15026
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Hahaha
 
1:25 AM
I have got to remember to not read tweets the morning after good shows (i.e. The Walking Dead) air. I knew exactly what was going to happen at the end of last night's episode.
 
user15026
@MBraedley oh my gosh want
 
I keep getting reminded that I have to do taxes. Even though I typically get money back (mainly due to RRSP contributions, some for donations), I still don't want to do my taxes.
 
user15026
@MBraedley I did mine, and got a whopping $22 back. :P Yay for poor studenthood. :p
 
HELLO MY BEAUTIFUL PEOPLES
 
@spugsley good evening
@AshleyNunn Hey, that's a case of beer

uhhh is anyone else having Luigi's Mansion say you've removed the game card every time you close and open the 3DS?
 
@AshleyNunn Up
Watch it
bring tissues
 
user15026
@BenBrocka YES
 
user15026
2:07 AM
It is making me CRAZY
 
user15026
@Ktash I have never seen it because I know it will likely make me cry buckets
 
Good to know it isn't my 3DS...uh....does the 3DS even allow software updates?
Stupid nintendo
so glad the game at least autosaves
 
@AshleyNunn Only the first 5 minutes. Which is the best intro to any movie. Ever!
 
user15026
@BenBrocka Yeah, they did software updates for MK7 - if they do, it will likely be the same way they did that one (which was kinda annoying, but it did the job)
 
user15026
@BenBrocka Yeah, that is a very good thing or I would have thrown it out the window by now

Q: Should I still shake the lights?

Ben BrockaIn Luigi's Mansion a trick to get a bit of extra money was to shake every light; hanging lights could often be spun around, then releasing a bunch of cash after being spun enough. Lights don't seem to spin at all in Dark Moon. Are lights no longer treasure-keepers?

Q: Are any voxophones (audio logs) missable? If so, which?

SeanVoxophones are the main collectible in BioShock Infinite. The first BioShock had audio logs that would be forever lost if not gathered before leaving a level in a playthrough—how does Infinite work in comparison?

0
Q: Where are all of the voxophones?

SeanThese audio logs/recordings are required for the backstory and the "Eavesdropper" achievement. Where can I find them? And how can I keep track of the ones I have?

 
user15026
@Ktash It is going to break my heart, I know it.
 
@AshleyNunn In the absolute best possible way, yes
 
ugh maybe I should have just got the downloadable version
But I don't really want to download anything expensive in case the 3DS dies
 
user15026
@BenBrocka Hopefully it will see a fix soon
 
user15026
I need to stop playing Luigi's Mansion because everything I want to ask ever sounds like a terrible innuendo
 
2:14 AM
Hey @James?
 
@OrigamiRobot Sup
 
@James If I use a Wrath Igniter, will I have enough time to fly away?
 
@OrigamiRobot ROFL... 50/50 man, Those things are mean and can be very hard to control if used in open places :)
Saw a video of Etho using one in an underground cavern and it turned a HUGE portion of it into cobble stone before he figured out what was going on :)
 
I'm no worried about controlling it or the world.
I'm worried about me.
 
Then yeah, Do not be on hover or toggle out of it ASAP, light it and book it
 
2:16 AM
I use the powersuit
I can get away fast
I am holding you responsible for mishaps
@James It didn't turn the iron into dark iron :(
 
@OrigamiRobot I think it has to burn for a length of time.
 
@James Nvm, it just wont spread form non-iron to iron
 
Easiest way to get Dark Iron is to get an uncrafting table, and uncraft logic matrix programmers.. You get dark iron and another logic matrix out of it. Rinse and Repeat.. Just costs like 3-5 levels of XP
 
@James Nah, I have a completely flat world
 
@OrigamiRobot I fail to see how one is related to the other
 
2:23 AM
@James I can get 64 dark iron blocks and not worry about bad stuff
 
@OrigamiRobot Build an XP farm that gets you level 30 in I think 70 seconds? xp was not a worry :D
 
Nah, this is faster and cooler
 
2:36 AM
How do we feel about these Bioshock Infinite questions before the game is released? It feels kind of like he's squatting the questions, but it seems like a bit of an edge case in the rules
There are currently 5 from 1 user, all in the last half hour
 
user15026
@murgatroid99 Feels like and looks like squatting to me
 
@AshleyNunn I'm just not sure if the rule against speculation actually applies here
 
user15026
@murgatroid99 It feels like it should
 
user15026
Game is not released yet, right?
 
@AshleyNunn Not for 80 minutes
That's why I'm unsure
 
user15026
2:39 AM
@murgatroid99 I suspect he timed it this way on purpose
 
@murgatroid99 I don't think there's anything we can do about it, but it is terrible form.
 
@OrigamiRobot That's my problem. He's gaming the system, and I want to shut it down
 
@murgatroid99 Downvote?
I mean, normally I'd be all for closing them, but it releases in 80 minutes.
 
@OrigamiRobot They're not actually bad questions though, and the upvotes he gets over the next couple of days will make the -1 from the downvote kind of meaningless anyway
 
It's more about the principle.

user15026
@Fluttershy That's what I think too
 
user15026
It annoys me that he did this.
 
@Fluttershy I'm just not sure if there is anything we can do about it
 
We can close them and just have them reopen in an hour
 
2:46 AM
Though, I do have a complete answer to the 1999 question that I plan to post in 80 minutes
 
That's not really doing anything.
 
@OrigamiRobot That doesn't accomplish anything. He still gets his squatting
 
@OrigamiRobot Wasn't the consensus on that to not reopen them?
 
@Fluttershy That was, but they'll get reopened anyway.
Because it launches in 80 minutes.
 
2:47 AM

Q: Should we reopen question being closed for 'unreleased game' after the game is released

neoQuestion such as Can I use a PC license to play the Mac version? become useful once the game is released. Should it be reopen automatically or let the user to flag for moderator's attention and ask for reopen?

 
All these questions feel like seeding more than anything else.
 
@Fluttershy There it is. We close them all
 
@fbueckert They are.
 
user15026
@fbueckert They are.
 
What are we closing them as?
NARQ?
 
2:48 AM
@OrigamiRobot Off topic as per that meta?
 
@murgatroid99 That'll just get in an FAQ fight
 
@OrigamiRobot Or off topic as per the speculation rule, stays closed as per that meta
 
I say NARQ because it's not answerable right now
 
One thing to point out, though: has the game been available for play for anyone?
 
@murgatroid99 OK fair enough
 
2:49 AM
@OrigamiRobot That works. But the 1999 one is, at least
I'm saving the answer for 80 minutes because I don't want to feed it, but it has a complete answer
 
Either way, though, something needs to be done about his content seeding, and I get the feeling closing his questions isn't going to stop it.
 
user15026
@Fluttershy We don't really have another option
 
Also, Google is shutting down it's search blocking functionality.
 
He has a pretty distinct history of asking terrible questions the day of a new release title, and I'm unsure how to like... stop it.
 
@fbueckert What?
 
2:50 AM
@fbueckert Has already shut down, for months now
 
user15026
@Fluttershy Yeah, that is a tough thing, because it isn't something we can really do anything about short of VTC and downvotes
 
@murgatroid99 Your ability to filter your results, to take out those stupid content farms.
 
VTC'd em all
 
So what's the verdict? OT? NARQ?
 
OT speculation
 
2:52 AM
I saw two that had one of each. So I did one OT and one NARQ. >______>
 
@Fluttershy I did NARQ on the first one.
Before @murgatroid99 said speculation
 
Also VTC'ed as OT.
 
It doesn't really matter. In this case, I think both close reasons are probably reasonable
 
I'd still like to point out, though, that if anyone has played it, it may not be speculation.
 
BlueRaja went through and commented on all of them. I like him.
 
2:53 AM
All closed now
 
@Fluttershy His name is so long though
 
They might be terrible questions, as it is literally content seeding, but they might be valid, if they had been asked later.
 
@OrigamiRobot Yeah......
 
@fbueckert Yes, but BlueRaja linked to the meta that explains why they won't be reopened
 
user15026
hot damn you are all fast
 
2:54 AM
That's enough to keep them closed
 
user15026
I didn't even get time to get votes in
 
@AshleyNunn We don't take too kindly to seeding.
Or parking.
Or whatever.
 
Brace for meta...
 
And they're ALL off the front page, too.
 
@AshleyNunn This chat makes closing really fast once we reach consensus
 
user15026
2:55 AM
@Fluttershy Oh, that I am well aware of, I have been here for the whole discussion, and ones previous on the topic. I am just surprised at the speed.
 
user15026
@murgatroid99 Yeah, and I was distracted.
 
It makes me strangely happy that I have the final/binding vote on all of them
 
@AshleyNunn I was distracted by Mass Effect 3 multiplayer. I caught the tail end of the discussion and voted accordingly. =P
 
Anyways, now I go kill a giant poison horror of sorts.
 
If he asks on meta we just close as a duplicate of the one Fluttershy linked to

@murgatroid99 Tigana.
@AshleyNunn ^^
 
@OrigamiRobot steam. It came with a couple of games and some TF2 hats
 
Advance Wars DS is so cool

@AshleyNunn The story is good. The way the author is telling it is terrible.
Also, the book is for my guild's book club, and I have to have it finished by April 7th-ish. I'm at like 80% though. =P

@Fluttershy Kay kinda does that a lot.
 
@OrigamiRobot What'd you done'd?
 
@Fluttershy Bioshock
 
user15026
My OKC profile has had a lot of people from India visit it lately. Not sure what to think about that

It just seems so random
 
3:31 AM
@OrigamiRobot I should install and play that
@Fluttershy I find that really annoying
Like that Zybourne Clock thing that someone in here linked
The story is awesome, but the writing is absolutely awful
 
Meta is done did'd.

Q: BioShock Infinite closures on release day

SeanI asked a series of questions on BioShock Infinite very recently (within the last hour), all of which were pummel-closed citing this and that. I understand that it is not yet midnight in America, but it is still "release day" elsewhere in the world. Are these closures not inconsistent with the me...

 
@OrigamiRobot I commented on it
 
@murgatroid99 Me too.
 
I can't find any history of this being done before by him, but I recall him doing so.
Many of this questions are extremely low quality and smack of content seeding, the day of the release.
 
user15026
Hostile tone? Really?
 
3:44 AM
@AshleyNunn There was some, especially about the voxatron questions.
Not bashing you, @OrigamiRobot; I would've done the same, I think.
 
@AshleyNunn I can imagine that he might have taken my comment(s) as hostile too
 
Especially for a long time user who should know better.
 
To expand, it should not be reopened per the consensus on the second meta question in linked in the previous comment. — murgatroid99 52 mins ago
 
So I found this thing trapped between two window panes

@murgatroid99 I don't think they are hostile, per se
 
@murgatroid99 That's not hostile.

@YiJiang'sEvilClone What is it?
 
I have no idea. It looks like some sort of beetle
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone WTF GET IT OUTTA HERE
 
Or maybe a hornet
 
3:46 AM
Yeah, now that I look I don't see any comments on any of the questions that are less than civil
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone That looks like a huge horsefly or something.
 
It's really big, and it makes a lot of noise when it flies
 
user15026
It is gigantic, and if it was in my house I would FREAK THE HELL OUT
 
user15026
(I don't like bugs)
 
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I saw @AshleyNunn and @fbueckert's comments about hostility and thought they were about this
 
3:49 AM
@AshleyNunn I used to have an issue with hornets getting into my apartment. My roommate and I would put on our military gear, including gas masks, grab brooms and dustpans, turn on the Star Trek Klingon battle music, and set to work removing the hornet(s) from the premises.
 
user15026
@Fluttershy That is the most awesome thing. Can I hire you to remove bugs from my apartment?
 
It almost looks like a wasp/bee of some sort
 
@AshleyNunn I no longer have that military gear. So... no. I would get stung.
 
user15026
@Fluttershy Oh. That would be less awesome.
 
Yeah, @YiJiang'sEvilClone, I'm pretty sure it's a bee of some sort

I once screamed like a crazy person because there was a grasshopper in my house and I hid in my room.
 
@AshleyNunn When I was like 8, a cricket somehow managed to get under my sheets. I didn't discover this, of course, until I was lying down to sleep.
 
user15026
@Fluttershy I would have lost my shit
 
Oh, I did.
 
HI CHAT.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Hi.
 
3:55 AM
I am in Memphis.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz That's like... 2.5 hours from me!
 
@Fluttershy I probably passed through your town en route here!
(I drove down here from Chicago today.)
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Did you come south from St. Louis on i55?
 
O_O YOU WERE RIGHT THERE!
 
3:56 AM
so, hooked onto 55 a ways south of STL
 
I live like 5 minutes from the 57/55 intersection!
 
@Fluttershy Well then.
 
Dang. =(
 
FWIW, stopping would've been a bad idea. I only just got here a little while ago because it took me forever to get out of Chicago.
 
Well, if you think you'll be heading back up this way from Memphis, ping me! There's a burger place here that's been like... family owned/operated for over 100 years.
It's neat! And their burgers are good.
 
3:58 AM
@Fluttershy Unlikely, I'll be here for a month-ish and then flying home probably.
 
Dang.

Q: How does the PS3 handle 21:9 aspect ratio displays?

Patrick KennyI'm thinking of buying a 21:9 aspect ratio monitor because I do a lot of work editing documents and the super widescreen would be very helpful for that. Since I also intend to use this monitor with my PS3, I'm wondering how the PS3 handles 21:9 displays (in this case, 2,560 x 1,080 resolution). ...

Once I am graduated, and eventually never have money (I am so scared I will like end up working at Tim Hortons or something again) I want to travel all over the place and meet as many Arqadians as possible. I think it would be a ridiculous adventure of awesome proportions
 
4:29 AM
So, how many people have Bioshock: Infinite questions typed up and ready to post the second the game is unlocked on Steam?
I don't, which is why I'm passive-aggressively whining about it like this.
 
@Brant Oh, it's even better. Someone has already asked them.
And when they got closed there was the usual meta drama
 
user15026
4:50 AM
Someone should respond to that. If I had the mental faculties I would tackle it, but school has claimed most of my brain.
 
@AshleyNunn I still want to come up there this summer
 
user15026
@saintwacko you totally should!
 
user15026
There could be cake! Or other awesome!
