    In GURPS, that actually costs experience (10 points, common sense advantage).On a related note:

    Oh it happened. Spoilered due to off-topic-ness and ranty-ness.

    Something to do with a skill check (I turned my brain off, I think it was something to do with a bullrush), the player performing the check was fine, the DM was fine, another player (highly inexperienced) questioned it. We got most of the stuff straightened out, then it turned into a bit of an arguement about an inexperienced player attempting to audit character sheets (said player also more or less accused people of cheating), then it turned into an audit of the player attempting to make the check, then in the process of this audit it brought up a related concern that made them re-question the original check, so they had to hash that out again, at the nearly two hour mark the DM (who up until this point had been caught up in arguing to remember that he was the DM, so not really his fault) finally sorted the whole thing out, made a ruling, and the check proceeded.
    I believe he rolled a 2, though it may have infact been a 1. Yeah.
    With all due respect to new players, 2 hours of game time wasted because a nubcake with a bruised ego and a lack of familiarity had to make an arguement at that time rather than before combat, or before session.

    2419: I am not allowed to take a hammer and chisel to a Stone or Clay Golem and give it abs and beefy looking biceps (even if I have a relevant profession such as stone cutting or masonry), with the arguement that this should somehow confer a strength bonus. The Golem likely already has a Strength higher than the entire party put together, the +1 bonus he might get out of it if successfully argued, isn't worth the arguement.

    That's more than can be said about me. I'm not even sure if my manliness ever existed.

    2420: I cannot have a crossbow that fires more than six quarrels a round per target aimed at.

    Nice.

    2460: My character is dead,making him sing "I feel happy" or that he's going to go for a walk will earn me a DMG to the head.
    2461: I will not call pazuzu's name three time then ask if his refrigerator is running.
    2462: When the final BBEG of the campaign is defeated by the skin of our teeth I may not pick up his evil maguffin and one-shot the party so I can become the new BBEG.
    2463: No...Just No.

    There are countless ingredients that make up the human body and mind, like all the components that make up me as an individual with my own personality. Sure, I have a face and voice to distinguish myself from others, but my thoughts and memories are unique only to me, and I carry a sense of my own destiny.
