Ragging On Language

I shared a web-article with discordian earlier, which led to my making a rant for stupidthings. This led to a convo about improper use of language, and it flowed from there to the popular usage of hip-hop slang...

Devil Wept: I'm telling you... I had all the "fixins" to be a wigger.
SatanasExMachina: Now THAT'S a scary image.
Devil Wept: I shiznit you not.
SatanasExMachina: See, that's why I'm not worried about you...that was improper usage of the "-iznit'" rule.
Devil Wept: yeah.. I know.
Devil Wept: iznit is only applicable to nouns.
SatanasExMachina: Well, as long as you know.

OK, not long ago, I picked up a copy of 'Planescape: Torment', which I'd heard was a great game. Being the AD&D freak that I am, I was happy to get it, and have been REALLY enjoying playing the game. It's an older game, but I've had no real problems...until now. I'm going into the last part of the game, and the fucker keeps crashing to the desktop, every time I enter this area (not an optional thing, unfortunately).

So far, no luck with online help. The game is out-of-print, and the only patch available doesn't work with the 2-CD version of the game. The only help that was vaguely close to what I needed isn't written for WinXP, and their automated help line clearly states that NONE of the Black Isle games 'officially' support XP. Their tech support phone is way backed up, so I've sent them a detailed support request, hoping against hope that someone can figure out the problem. Until then, though, I'm out of luck.

Dammit, just as I was geared up for the end...caliban! Did you ever send out those CD's?

Fascinating New Discoveries

I learned a new thing this evening...apparently, there can be such a thing as "vicarious boobage". According to what I learned, this is what happens when small-breasted women get jealous of large-breasted women, and so live vicariously through the more copiuos cleavage.

Learn something new everyday, huh?
