Of not smoking. Doing pretty good so far. Been awake for 7 hours, no nicotine. And I haven't tried to kill anyone. I wonder if I'll make it.

Just remember, it saves hundreds of dollars a year, if not thousands.

So I can double up on my booze funds. Sweet!

What does that mean?

 

Something that messes up posting every morning ~11 AM European time. Not sure exactly what it does but it's important or they'd have removed it long ago.

Yup Cloudflare basically sucks in your post, so you think it's not worked. You then press submit again. It eats it again. And so on. And so on. It stores these posts in its tummy and then ... when it feels like you've lost all hope, it vomits them all back up on the Board.

 

The number of spew posts that appear are in direct relation to your level of grrrrrrrr at the time Cloudflare happens. It's 10am BST in the UK. I think it's when it's doing its daily parameter security walk lol

 

 

 

 

 

so .. Well done for only having pressed submit twice, especially considering you've given up smoking recently. You're clearly managing to hold onto your Zen. Congratulations :)

It's weird, I usually want to smoke when I drink beer, but not last night or today so far.

 

The key is not drinking too much

Forgot I quit smoking for a bit, was wondering where my smokes were

On a side note I can already tell an improvement in my breathing capability

    • I agree. WoT needs to be set apart from GoT so people don't think it's playing to GoT popularity.
    • This is how I always imagined them handling the use of the OP. And with CGI, I think it can be done well. I've always envisioned it like ribbons of light, a different color for each part of the OP, being actually woven in different patterns for different weaves.   Yes, learning the truth caused many of the Aiel to go crazy, like Sevanna's first lover, and many others to totally abandon the Aiel way of life (forget what they call it). And I think they need to show the Emonds Fielders' each having a couple stops along their way to Baerlon and Tar Valon, to give us a good sense of how long of a journey it is.     Well, if they're gonna have "pillow friends out the wazoo", they'll have nudity. It's unfortunate that they will have to pander to the PC crowd and it really is a sad commentary on modern society that we can't enjoy a tv show/movie without nudity. But I think they need to choose the scenes carefully. Like it's one thing to see Aviendha running off nude to Rhuidean, but not dignified Moiraine. Just showing her bare shoulders will be enough to know that she too, has to go nude. I will be very upset if they mix in real world cursing with WoT style cursing. It is a big part of RJ's world building and helps to set it apart as alternative world. (I believe "bloody" is actually a curse word in the UK.)     Not saying I agree with polygamy, but if you can have homosexuality, why not polygamy? Besides the fact that it is totally accepted in Aiel culture. But I think they can do as independent trysts, with Min being the one he finally stays with. I don't think they should cut any of the 3 relationships because they are important in the development of the characters, and where Elayne is concerned, Rand's feelings for her impact his decision in dealing with Rahvin because he knows if he allows his feelings for her to become public, she will become a target. (Personally, I would really like to keep Elayne's pregnancy because there was a lot about it I found amusing.) I would really miss the scene when they all bond Rand and become fully aware of his love for them. I thought it was a beautiful scene, but I know we can't have it all.   The use of the Bowl of Winds is what finally checked the Dark One's control of the weather. It was a major victory for the Aes Sedai and Wind Finders, so I think it needs to stay in. Shadar Logoth and it's consequences (Mat accepting the dagger) is already pretty important, I think. Fain will probably be important for the first season or so, but then I say kill him off.   I hope they don't sacrifice the development of the main characters for the sake of time or big action/battle scenes. The growth of our main characters and their friendship bonds are one of the things that sets WoT apart from most other fantasy books I've read. It's actually what I love so much about Harry Potter and why I can watch those movies over and over and have read the books twice. I just fell in love the with the characters and their devotion to each other.  
    • Oh I didn't know those weren't all the titles
    • now remember author's name; P L Travers, pseudonym of Helen Golf.     as far as I recall, Compulsion was never done through any indirect means anytime in this series.   my impression of Mary Poppins was that she tried to make the children ethical; not necessarily try to control them.
