    They didn't specify what kind of doctor they saw.

    Also, got luck with the dude, AW! From what I've been able to tell, it's a lot easier to get dates when you're not the guy in a guy/girl coupling once communication starts to flow. I have some theories on that.

    Eh, I was saving words. I'll be able to get a priliminary diagnosis and hopefully a referral to a mental health professional, especially on the Depression side.

    I have a few theories on that as well, boiling down to those annoyind gender roles we seem completely unable to get away from. Like statistics also mean that you're goinf to be seeing a lot more men than women if you say you're looking for both.

    Are there any vampires or vampire-like individuals named "Falo" or "Utarefson" or "Ihsgnaij" or even "Iorom?"
    I wouldn't know, because I'm not one.
    What about "Alatev?"

    That's an ... oddly specific question. Are we talking about proper names of specific individuals who happen to be vampires or the names of vampire-like species, such as Asanbosam or Rokurokubi? Also, I'm pretty sure "Falo" is Latin for ... a certain piece of anatomy unsuited for polite company.
    NB: While I never mean to offend anybody, sometimes the unfortunate combination of Aspergersism and the inherent difficulty of reading a situation through uninflected text over the internet get in the way of that goal. Please feel free to point out any social faux pas, inappropriate joke timing, etc.

    I can't overstate how angry I am at this really, really good joke you've done.

    But taking it seriously yeah no, no one has ever thought to reverse the names of other vampires to make characters like they did with Alucard.

    In my defence, I was at the end of a night shift and in no state to appreciate revertrograms.

    I imagine because reversing names is seen as rather trite and cliché at this point. The first one in the area gets to have the okay-ness grandfathered in, but anything else will just be seen as trying to copy the first one. So, unless you're going for a deliberate parody, it probably won't happen. (Also, not every name reverses to something that feels like a proper name.)

    Had a strange urge to look up the story of Fabio getting hit in the face with a goose during a roller coaster, to see if I was allowed to laugh at that story or not. Wanted to make sure Fabio didn't actually get hurt.

    Turns out the real story was that the roller coaster people were SUPER unsafe in how they built it. A goose hit a camera and the CAMERA hit Fabio and the roller coaster owners basically gaslight the media into going "hah what a goofy story!!!". And that's kinda ****ed up!

    also to answer my initial question with this: aside from being sUPER pissed that they allowed a camera to hit him in the face and then claimed it was a goose to cover their asses, and like...the blood, obviously, he was fine. But now it's not laughable at for a different reason!

    I had a dream I was developing a role-playing board game last night, it was a mixture of Settlers Of Catan and the Talisman board game. Even got a name for it in the dream. I think it is completely possible to fully flesh it out and shop it around to companies for release.

    It's good, not great (their mix of half normal sitcom with the fourth wall up, half Office-style documentary with talking heads is really weird), but that was one of their best jokes.

    I have mixed feelings about Parks and Recreation. It has some good moments, but I can't stand cruel/cringe humor and that comprises a pretty big chunk of the show.

    Really, on reflection, Rob Lowe's character is responsible for just about 80% of my enjoyment of that show.

    I don't mind most of that (though the hate against Jerry isn't funny to me; it and the talking heads are the biggest relics of how the show started off trying to be The Office but not really getting what made The Office good), but what really gets me is Ron's blatant hypocrisy. Other than that, I enjoy it alright.

    Hey guys I need your opinion on a created I made. I actually made 4 Pokemon. All Wolverine Pokemon. There Type are all Steel/Fighting Pokemon. The Pokemon named is Mauler, Wolvon (Mauler second evolution form), Feralon (Mauler third evolution form) and Mega Feralon (Mauler Mega evolution form) Here are there stats.

    Mauler:

    HP: 50
    Attack: 50
    Defense: 100
    Special Attack: 50
    Special Defense: 100
    Speed: 100

    Wolvon:

    HP: 75
    Attack: 75
    Defense: 125
    Special Attack: 75
    Special Defense: 125
    Speed: 125

    Feralon:

    HP: 100
    Attack: 100
    Defense: 150
    Special Attack: 100
    Special Defense: 150
    Speed: 150

    Mega Feralon:

    HP: 125
    Attack: 125
    Defense: 175
    Special Attack: 125
    Special Defense: 175
    Speed: 175

    So what do you think of Mauler and his evolution forms stats?

    Megas generally get +100 BST across whichever stats (unless the previous form was notably bad, I think) and never get a boost to HP, so that bit is both balance-broken and impossible-broken.

    Unsure about the rest off the top of my head; I haven't done competitive in ages and don't know benchmark stats.

    Yes, I tried to make the stats balance also Mauler and his evolution form used bite and claws attacks.

    Somehow I doubt that. A total of 750 is higher than all but six other Pokemon (the five mega-evolved legends plus Ultra Necrozma). A total of 900 is absurdly broken, higher than anything else by more than 100. This is not difficult to look up.

    I feel like asking in the Pokémon thread that's floating around would be better for feedback than just asking us Random Banterers. Greater concentration of applied knowledge on the subject matter.

    I'm considering going clean shaven.

    It's not the best look considering my weight, but as I'm wanting to be able to appear more feminine when I'm agender(/female) it's the easiest first step to making it practical.

    Spoiler: Why I've no longer got a gender on my profile and pronouns
    Show
    This essentially boils down to my gender not being constant and me not being certain exactly how genderfluid I am. It'll likely not ever come back, because removing it is a conscious decision to try and help me be more comfortable.

    WRT pronouns, I'm still happy with he/him/his, although I'd prefer they/them/their. I spend more time as male than female or agender, partially due to work, so it's something I'm going to have to be comfortable with anyway.
