That tip about recording sessions is good- as a GM, it's easy for me to go back to a recording/video and find the specific voice for an NPC and their place in the world. While I extensively note take, they are sometimes scribbled at the speed of thought
But it's only really "infinite" gears between two fixed points right? like, you can't just keep shifting up or down? What's the maximum and minimum gear ratio equivalent to actual cogs?

Sleight of hand/basic coin tricks.
You can learn basic sleights and palms really fast, and work up to a couple basic magic tricks in the time you talk about. Can practice it while doing other things too.
Argo fuck yourself.
Also, Fringe on a streaming service is what I've always wanted. If they added Farscape too I'd be set for a long time
My number one tip would be to learn how to Ranger Roll a t-shirt
It's specifically the "hug" thing- wrapping your arms around its body or neck- that they don't like. Pats/scratching etc is cool.
Egg Whites are a key component of a Pisco Sour, which might be a place to start. A grind of pepper seasons an egg white cocktail well (pepper + egg being a classic combo)
Given where they sourced their info from, it's very much a list of "Popular and well rated" rather than critically "best."
That's not to say that Popular=bad, but it's a very safe (and pretty American) list.
I take your point, and I don't fundamentally disagree, but I'd classify it as post-apocalyptic given it is missing several of the hallmarks of what generally classifies fiction as dystopian- A lot of other dystopian fiction deals with societies in dysfunction and totalitarian themes, where as The Road is absent much of that.
The hostility of the landscape is dystopian, but it's about the only way I'd classify it as being similar.
I've actually never looked at Nuclear War necessarily as the catalysing incident in The Road, but frankly looking for a cause of the apocalypse in The Road is kinda pointless.
Of course, genre distinctions are arbitrary, but if someone said to me "I've been reading 1984 and The Hunger Games, recommend me something in the same sort of genre" I certainly wouldn't pick The Road first.
Pretty vanilla list. Not saying it's bad (though "Proof of Heaven: a Neurosurgeon's journey into the afterlife" certainly is), it's just pretty tame.
Also, to nitpick, The Road certainly isn't a dystopia.
I use Sleep for Android and have maths puzzles as the shutoff. Just make sure you match it to your level of ability- I got too good at the easier ones and could do them half asleep.
All of Star Trek may be enough to get me there on Stan. had just started watching it on US Netflix.
I don't think you have to show bonafides before paying tribute, actually. Who's arbitrating this?
You're essentially doing the same thing as those who accuse others of being "fake geek girls" or hipster "I was in to David Bowie before he was cool."
Whether you were a huge Bowie fan, or someone who just liked that one track, I think people can express their sadness over his passing.
The point I'd make about Free to Air television is that it's essential for people who can't afford a streaming service/computer/internet connection. Streaming services are still a (sure, cheapish but still) luxury.
There's a dude in my apartment block who's in that boat. Without Free to Air television, he's got nothing.
Well I'm never playing Sheriff of Nottingham with you again.
I'd have to take the bread out first.
When I have a kid they're going to be a pincushion for the first...50 years of their life.
Vaccines are one of the best health measures we have.
You could get a travel pillow? They're pretty good and versatile, used mine on planes, buses, and in a pinch when sleeping arrangements are less than stellar on tour
Considering setting my old PS2 up with my treadmill, does that count?
I'd like to find a better way to sleep- my sleeping pattern seems to normalise to a 2am-10am pattern, which is fine when I'm on holidays but not really tenable for a day job. What's the best way to normalise my diurnal rhythm, so I can best be awake during the day (to play magic?)
Sleepless in SA
Hmm. You should never spend too much time in a debate summarising your opponents argument - that's their job. You can use a "steel man" version of one of their points specifically to rebut, but you're better off using their exact wording.
If you could do this for a night or two (and in adelaide) rather than a full week, I could definitiely see myself at least trying it. Unfortunately, in and out so much that it'd spoil.
even if it's a chore
No. If she doesn't want sex, you're not entitled to it. Marriage or otherwise.
Now, if you're not getting any, discuss it, absolutely, but you don't resort to bullshit like this.
