What about a civil lawsuit?

I would certainly hope that there will be some sort of very large cicil judgement against this driver.  If the state criminal laws can't do anything with this one, then I hope that this lady will be paying for this one for the rest of her natural life.

I think we all however would like to have a death ray mounted on our cars for those "special" moments.

I've always wanted a laser that I could aim at people's tires to give them a slow leak so they have to pull over to change it.  I'd nail both tires if they were reall jerks, just so they would have more flats than spares.

Does that make me a bad person?

I may have to pick that up.  Let us know if its any good.  

It may be a bit before I get to it though.  I still need to finish Johanathan Strange, and The System of The World.

I'm about halfway through the book.  The story's picking up, and I'm definately going to finish this one.

I'd have to say that I don't mind the footnotes.   I can jump to them, and they really don't interrupt the flow of the story for me.  I would agree that the style does take a bit of getting used to, but I have read some Dickens and Dumas in the past which has prepared me for the older style of writing.

don't you ever feel like you should be out meeting new people (girls, at least) with all that gaming time instead?

Maybe i'll get to the point where I can stay in and 'game' more in the future, but right now it just seems like it's a bit of a waste of time.

This isn't meant as a knock on you, BTW

No worries, I don't take it as a knock.  To answer, no, I don't feel a strong urge in that area at all. I've never been greatly motivated to 'find someone' as they say. I'm kinda like ... if it happens, it happens. My brother was the opposite, he couldn't be happy till he found an SO. I'm just not built that way. I can be perfectly content alone, but I do enjoy being with people too, especially good friends.

I'd have to say that I'm close to Jeff in this respect.  I'm very single at the moment, and I don't really feel any strong urge to change that.  If it happens, great.  But if it doesn't, then it's not that big of a deal.  

I'm an introvert by nature and when I'm alone, I don't really ever get lonely.  I stopped drinking a few years ago, so there's zero interest in the bar scene.  Not that I'm anti-social; if a friend calls to say, "Hey let's go do such-and-such." I'm all for that.  But if that doesn't happen I'm just as happy to stay at home and play a game or read a book.

11  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else having problems with Gone Gold? (Pt. 2) on: October 09, 2004, 08:42:14 PM
Good to see that I've found everyone!

Thanks to everyone here fo having us, and I hope that we're able to get Gone Gold back up on it's feet.  This the best community online that I've run across, and that's not something that should slip away without a fight.
