    Okay, will do. Used to love that game, but then I let a friend borrow both that and the expansion and I never saw it again. Same thing happened with my N64, and my gamecube controllers, and DS charger, and most of my DS and Gameboy SP games, not all because of the same friend.

    Pvmers just gone to bed and I just woke up. Just can't seem to fall asleep again <.<

    I'm gonna buy AoE2HD aswell. Need it for the occasional stomping of people who think they can play it better than I do

    I'll read a book since I can't sleep. Or is anyone still here?
    All I would ever want and need is a hug.

    I used to be real good when I was younger (age 16 until about 21). I was close to a scratch golfer back then. Haven't had as much time to play (and my health hasn't really let me) over the last 10+ years, so I'm nowhere near as good as I used to be. Right now I'm probably close to a bogey golfer. Today I did a damn good job with my drives and fairway play. I couldn't put worth a damn though. Only had 3 pars on the 9 holes I played. The other holes I pretty much 3 putted each and every single one of them.

    It was still a good day out with the family.

    Lack of playing time will really kill your golf game. More so than any other sport (for me at least). I've decided that even though I can't play as much I'm still going to try and get out to the driving range once a week or so.

    I was thinking of getting AoE2HD, but I think I'm going to hold off on spending any more money right now. Wait to see if there is anything that really interests me.

    I had to stop bowling about 6 months ago. Doctors orders.

    They told me that once I get my transplant I should be able to go back to bowling as often as I want.

    Blah blah blah, saving space for a long joke, will edit shortly.

    There are 5 scientists on a research trip to the remote parts of the Amazon. They're all the top scientists and researchers in their respective fields. There's an Englishman, a German, a Frenchman, a Japanese man, and an American. One day, while out paddling in their canoe, taking samples and observing scientific things, they are set up and captured by a group of cannibals. More fearsome than just normal cannibals, these actually skin their prey prior to their consumption, and make the hull of their canoes with said skin.

    The group, unarmed and alone, are quickly subdued. Several of the cannibals can communicate in whatever arbitrary language the 5 researchers and the cannibals can both somehow speak. They explain that they are not completely savage, they're just industrious cannibals. They'll only kill the men 1 at a time, and only when they need the food and skin for their boats.

    A period of time goes by, and the cannibals are in need of food and boat making material. As a gesture of goodwill, they will allow each of the condemned men to choose their favorite alcoholic drink, and their manner of death.

    The Englishman is the first destined to die for the cannibals. He is provided with a fantastic ale, and chooses to be killed with a blackjack. He drinks his ale, says "Long live the Queen," and is clubbed before the cannibals get their meat and use his skin for their boats.

    A short while later, the German is next to go. He's given a fine dark, yeasty beer. He chooses to exit this world through the use of a Luger. He drinks he beer, smacks his lips, and says, "Ach, mein Gott," before the cannibals kill him for food and boat material.

    Inevitably, the cannibals need more food and boating equipment. The Frenchman is chosen next. He is given a glass of Champagne. He chooses to go out with a dagger. He drinks his Champagne, says, "Sacre bleu," and is killed.

    After a few weeks, the cannibals are desperate for more food and skin for their boats. The Japanese man is chosen next. He asks for, and is given sake. He chooses to die via a katana. He drinks his sake, says, "So sen suu hai," and is killed.

    A short period later, the cannibals are both hungry and in need of yet more skin for their boats. The American is the only one they have left, and his given his choice of an alcoholic beverage, and his manner of death. He declines the offer of a drink, and demands that he be the one to end his own life. After some conversation, the cannibals decide to allow this. When they ask him what weapon he wants, he simply asks for a fork. Puzzled, and more than a little intimidated by the American's seeming disregard for death, the agree. The American takes the fork, looks at them with resigned eyes, and starts stabbing himself relentlessly all over his body. "Make a boat out of this you sonsofbitches!"

    Yeah yeah. Not meant to be racially offensive, please don't take it that way. Feel free to retell and substitute whatever nationalities you'd like. Also, laugh damnit, its funny.

    A question that can't truly be answered until just hours before I get it.

    In the US each year there are around 22,000 people who need a liver transplant. There are only around 6,000 available livers each year though.

    This is then broken down into sections of the US (based on where you are registered through). My transplant will take place in Salt Lake City in Utah (it's the closest to me) and I basically have to wait until a perfect match comes up AND I have to be in worse condition than anyone else who is also a perfect match.

    My liver has gotten quite a bit worse lately so I have jumped up on the list ahead of a bunch of people, but where exactly you are on the list isn't something they tell you. They will tell you when you are getting closer though and the last time I talked to my transplant coordinator (last week) she told me I should be prepared for a phone call in the near future.

    But, it's also possible that when I go in for my next set of blood work that my numbers will drop down some and I will then be lowered down the list.

    I sadly need a cadaveric liver. I don't qualify for a partial transplant because of the other health issues that I have (associated with this).

    Awh. Well, good luck!
    And if all else fails, find your nearest healthy looking human and go get yourself a liver!

    I was going to ask about a partial transplant, but I guess that answers my question. As completely borked as UNOS and organ availability is in general, the good thing (if there is such a thing), is that typically people can get partial donations from a living donor. Sorry to hear that's not a option for you.

    Either way, if you get really desperate, we'll find a 5 point match for you, and I'll kill him near Salt Lake and make my escape (insert maniacal laughter here).
