I wish the chess game hadn't ended so I could lurk in the "Logical Fallacies plus a Chess Game" thread some more.

If I wanted really strange I'd just go back to the East Village in the CITY.

If I wanted dangerous (which would be great research for my cyberpunk novel I need to do yet another edit on) I'd go home to Detroit.

I had to erase all my browsing history because my laptop frustrated me. My easy access to my favorite sites like hatrack were gone and I had to dig up an old email to find my way back here.

the one good thing is that Dice War, that the evil Crank put up on a previous Grist for the Mill thread is now gone. I know he put it there so I would be hopelessly addicted to it.

I'm thinking about sending an email virus to the person who showed it to me.

The funny part about how I broke my addiction to that damned game is that my video card fried, and it took a few days longer than it should have to get it fixed. By the time my PC was back to 100%, I was so far behind on my real work, I didn't have time for games; and, by the time I caught up, I completely forgot about Dice Wars.

So, Snapper, I would like to thank you very much for reminding me about it. What's your email address?

S!
S!...C!

Maybe instead, you could send snapper a link to some other addictive online game. Much better than a virus.

Yes, I have one of my best friends in college, who seems to be refusing to email me, but keeps "kidnapping" me in some game he is playing. I am now ignoring him - at least until he decides to respond to my emails.

Tiergan already sent me his thanks/curses for reminding him about it. Says he has a great story in his head but is now addicted, again.

Never got into computer gaming of any kind...computers weren't a part of my life when I was young and open to influences...when I finally broke down and got a computer, the few games I've tried out were either (a) ones that came with the computer, or (b) associational with something else I was interested in, like a TV show.

I know so little about these things that I don't even understand what philocinemas is talking about...

Robert, I don't quite understand it myself. It is on Facebook, and it appears to be some version of "Tag" or "Gotcha", which used to be popular on college campuses in the 80s.

Still at a loss. I've never even looked over anything at Facebook---I'm not even certain how to do so.

*****

I'll try another random thought, kinda associated with it.

When you see someone talking on a cellphone at two in the morning, is it right to wonder just who they could possibly be talking to at that hour?

Their child or spouse oversees. Their hospitalized friend, who was tired of sitting in a strange place alone. Their alcoholic cousin who'd been arrested again. There are lots of possibilities at 02:00.
