    If my memory of British fraud law is accurate, you're fine as long as you don't attempt a medical procedure or gain pecuniary advantage (read: make money). Don't quote me on that, though, because I am in no way a legal expert and even if I were I wouldn't be allowed to give legal advice here anyway.
    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.

    There's a difference between legal information and legal advice. Though since that distinction is pretty much a legal one, the forums don't particularly care and the rules discourage legal information that could be leading in any event.

    Tl;dr - good call.

    I had a tongue adventure today!

    Spoiler: TW: Gross mouth things
    Show
    So today I needed to go to the dentist to get a fibroma removed from my tongue. This is the story.

    I go there at 11:30, as was the agreed upon time I booked yesterday. However, I'm not in the system. So after some discussing, we learn that I AM in fact in the system...booked for 10:45. But that was the first time they offered me yesterday, which I said no too. They had replaced it with 11:30, which I approved. However in their system, the person then changed it from 11:30 back to 10:45, without providing notice. Woo!

    So we rebook it for 12:30, and I come in at 12:30 for it and they're like okay Zodi, we booked you for an hour, let's get that benign tongue tumor snipped off and cauterized. The doctor looks at my tongue for one minute and says that she doesn't have any of the biopsy equipment here and needs to requisition it for me tomorrow, at a time they will tell me at their convienance.

    After that I had to update my insurance with them, which took like 15 minutes or so. So all told this uh...took an hour to get finished. My reward for enduring it was 25 dollars gift card for Javaroma.

    I bought a large hot chocolate with whip cream and chocolate, two chocolate and powdered croissants, a piece of terramasu, and two nanaimo bars.

    Well... that certainly is an adventure. All of that sucks, except for the last part. At least you got dessert-y food out of it (rather ironic, from the dentist).

    It also reminds me that I feel weird seeing other people talk about Nanaimo Bars, because Nanaimo's "just" north of me, so I always think of them as a local thing.

    A) Why would you even specify century? This forum, or even the internet, doesn't have that kind of history.

    B) As mentioned, arguments should be left to lie in peace. Nothing good ever comes from dragging up bitter memories.

    C) While 'terriblest' is not a word, no, Peelee was using a common linguistic comparison technique, replacing 'great' with 'terrible'. Entirely incorrect, but still acceptable amongst extremely casual circles.

    D) Grammar checkers are not quite the end al to be all. For instance, your quote that I'm responding to could probably use a sprinkling of commas in there.

    Ok I should've said history instead of century.

    Sure, but century seems a little bit of overkill for three decades.

    I got in trouble for misunderstanding a gesture my brother made. Apparently moving your hand (palm up-ish, angled a bit) over a desk counts as "pointing at the floor." After that, I asked how that made sense, and my father tried to gaslight me that I wasn't in trouble for disobeying my brother's vague gesture, but "only" for asking why that gesture meant that.

    Not only am I not allowed to misunderstand things, but I'm not allowed to try to stop misunderstanding things... and when I do both, the second one is the "reason" I'm getting yelled at, even though I was already being yelled at before then.

Anyone else remember those? I specifically remember something about how all summoning spells had a random chance of summoning hostiles in their game, and something about non-tracked spell component pouches being cheating.
