And now my brother wants the old fridge, so instead of letting the delivery folk deal with it, I need to move it.

@  NovaSaber : (04 March 2021 - 11:53 AM)

I take objection to the idea that public health is "politics" just because some politicians don't listen to the experts.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:59 AM)

I was only replying to the general sentiment of the last three posts before mine.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

The person you replied to specifically gave the example of "limiting the amount of people in a facility".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:58 AM)

This wasn't about "lock[ing] everyone in the country down".

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:57 AM)

All I'm saying is there are lockdown and anti-lockdown people and hashing it out in the shoutbox on a toy forum is dumb.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

You don't have to lock everyone in the country down to mitigate risks in one population.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Of course older people have it worse, but America is one of those countries where people ship their old people to homes far away from the action anyways.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

What ar you even trying to say, anyway? That we shouldn't complain about others increasing the danger more than necessary?

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:55 AM)

Frankly, there's a lot to say on this issue that can't be encompassed on the shoutbox and I really really don't want to have to deal with politics every single time I check the forums.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:54 AM)

To claim that this is about the people in the 20-40 range is also disingenuous.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:53 AM)

Essential workers and such are pretty fit on average which is an extra boon for them.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:51 AM)

It's not really a personal choice issue, it's a risk versus well, anything you want to do issue. Literally leaving the house results in potential exposure, mask or no. Overall, most of us who hang out here are 20-40, and our survival rate is comparable with some pretty out there statistics.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:39 AM)

Anybody who has to go out because of work or groceries or whatever can't just choose to avoid any potential disease-spreaders, for one thing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (04 March 2021 - 10:38 AM)

Kind of disingenuous to frame this as just a personal choice issue.

@  fourteenwings : (04 March 2021 - 10:22 AM)

This whole "I can't handle people not me having the choice to not put on masks" thing's a bit much.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 March 2021 - 09:14 AM)

Hey, Florida is one of the most infected states, and we won't even shut down. We may use masks, but restaurants, clubs, you name it, those are still wide open. Also, what's limiting the amount of people in a facility again? :p

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 March 2021 - 08:57 PM)

Oklahoma is right there, apparently. Dang bible belt. Nice people, but not the smartest cookies I've seen.

@  Hg Dragon : (03 March 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Don't worry! COME TO TEXAS WHERE OUR IDIOT GOVENOR DECALRED THE STATE 100% OPEN AND ENDED THE MASK MANDATE!!!

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:21 PM)

Beyond just the not even being able to walk into most stores

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:21 PM)

No kidding, but right now: unless it's physically on the shelf in front of you: there's no clear idea when it'll be available. And that goes for just about everything.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 04:18 PM)

I've heard new appliances are hard to get, for some reason

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 04:13 PM)

And the new one we settled on is backlogged up to two months. Even better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (03 March 2021 - 11:59 AM)

I mean, it's not all bad. Disney's releasing Speed remastered on 4K

@  wonko the sane? : (03 March 2021 - 08:48 AM)

And now the fridge has died. So far 2021 has been WONDERFUL.

@  Hg Dragon : (01 March 2021 - 08:49 PM)

@  Paladin : (28 February 2021 - 09:19 AM)

WHICH 2016 clown panic?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

first one was a decent horror flick but the second was a mess plotwise and even the scares were worse

@  tigerhawk : (27 February 2021 - 04:57 PM)

Never understood the hype for the IT movies, too many floppy zombie chases, They're not in the least unsettling.

@  Maruten : (25 February 2021 - 06:00 PM)

It's better than the last one!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:30 AM)

The new Wizards of the Coast logo looks stupid

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:29 AM)

It's really rather shocking watching the Investor Day presentation and seeing how much Hasbro actually owns now.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 February 2021 - 10:26 AM)

If everyone had COMMON SENSE, then things would maybe go a little better-

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

Howard sighs appreciatively at the scent of his cooking, and steps outside to see what all the commotion is about.
 

"What??? No! You can't have had fun with that!"[/color][/font]

Howard shrugs. "Mi gat to ramp calvinball fi de first time inna foreva, an dat ah always ah gud time, nets or nuh."
 

With you and your friends safe, I will need your sword, Daughter. The rest will need to kneel."[/b]

Howard takes another step out of the doorway. "Hey now! Nuh one ah getting beheaded inna San Lorenzo! Mi ago nah ave it."

The Queen was taken aback. "I would never dream of such a thing. All of you are heroes! And since Sir Kage stated he is not part of any particular order, I feel it is only right to exercise mine right to properly knight all of you."

Howard stares at the queen, and mental gears are almost audible. Then he steps back into the doorway and says, "Mi forgot dat was an option weh swords an kneeling were involved," clearly embarrassed.

Still feeling a little unfocused from the Adapter punch, Kage could only muster a feeble protest as EB reached him. Though he did manage to simoly get EB to support him rather than carry him.

At least, he thought he had.

Having extracated himself by the time the King returned, Kage sank down to one knee for a moment, then levered himself up again.

“We ended up playing a type of Foot ball against a team of giants in pumpkin hats.

We won,” he said with a wink. “Then there was an Adapter with a glass jaw and, oh yes. A ‘Champion Like No Other’. You are a poor Patron, Mossy.”

Pleased to see that everybody had beaten the bug witch, Kage sighed deeply. Then winced again. Stifling another groan, Kage finally heard the Queens statement of ‘Knighting’ the heroes. Although Kage was more than certain his friends all deserved such an honour. The ifea of being fully ‘Knighted’ himself still made Kage uncomfortable. Despite Destrons enthusiastic insistence when she had unofficially ‘Knighted’ him after their first adventure. Despite his friends affirmation that he was Worth of such. Kage still felt unsuited for it. Especially the ‘Sir’ bit.

So he stepped back a bit, wobbled aa he lost his balance and once again sank to one knee.

After letting Kage go, EB winced as his shoulder got crushed again, but he patted the King's shoulder back in a brotherly fashion.
"You would've loved the Earth Day celebrations of Holiday Island..." He gave an uncertain smile which made it unclear if it was a good memory or not. Any further thought was interrupted by the Queen.

He blinked at the thought of being knighted. "No, thanks. Kage and Howie did most of the work. I just tackled one guy. I don't think I'd be any good at following the Knightly Rules or whatever."

Moscareina grumbled under her breath, "I wish I could have just sent something that would've drank your spines". And she started to walk off. Meanwhile, the Queen replied to Kage and EB's rejections with, "I do not mean to knight you for just this one event. You have saved the world and proven to be honorable in mine eyes." She walked purposefully towards Friday February but then stopped. "While quite worthy, I don't know if you should also accept the knighting for Lady Oracle, seeing as she can not physically be here. I don't know if it should be you or Kage."

Pulling himself back up, Kage inclined his head towards Friday.

“I think Friday, or Freya, should take the Knighting for herself and Oracle because, in a way, you could call them sisters.”

The PoeT regarded their surroundings with lingering suspicion, as if, at any moment another monster or challenge may yet spring upon them.

 

As the Queen spoke of knighthoods, he raised a hand in protest.

 

He said, 

 

"Though grateful for such generosity,

 There is yet a title that waits for me,

 Austier, till then, is my given road,

 That I may learn to bear it's heavy load."

EB shuffled his feet awkwardly, hoping the Queen would let the matter drop. He really did not want to be knighted, but he also did not want to upset Her Majesty.

"It is no crime in Viknadia to decline an honor such as this if you feel unsuited to it... I myself would feel strange if called sir ...on the battlefield or at court. Perhaps Mother - some other rewards can be awarded instead of the knightings?" Dee does hand her mother her sword though.

Nerves prickling between his shoulder blades, Kage looked from the Queen to Destron.

“To be a “Real” Knight is a great honour. Even though, as i have said to your daughter when she spoke of it after our first adventure i still feel unworthy of said honour.”

"Self-worth is not a thing able to be given by another my friend, you must be the source of that yourself... all that is offered you now is fealty and the wisdom of the Northern Queen... who thinks very highly of you."  Dee Smirks at Kage.  "Remember that being Knighted is a much lower honor than she intended to give you this day... my Prince."  Destron then motions casually with her hand to indicate Kage's current position.

 

"Given you are on one knee at the moment, and were I to have suddenly developed an appreciation for men... I'm Sure Mother would happily forgo the knighting in favour of a different ceremony."  Dee giggles... wondering how successfully she's managed to force a blush onto her face... XD

The Queen sighed. "I had thought that with you already being friends, Kage would have made an excellent suitor. As revealed to mine eyes, it's not that simple. But to the matter at hand..." She touched the blade of Dee's sword to each of Friday's shoulders once, then she repeated the gesture to represent knighting Oracle. "May you bring yourself and Viknadia great honor, Dame Friday." She then turned her attention to EB. "I do not agree with your refusal to be knighted...but I shall honor it. Perhaps some day in the future you will feel yourself to be as honorable as others see you." Suddenly, her expression lit up as she had an idea. "And that might come about once you win the fair Bea's heart. I have ideas on how this can be accomplished." The King let out a bellowing laugh. "Ha ha, splendid idea! But all this ceremony can wait. For now, let's eat!"

 
"And so they had much merriment as thankfully nothing suddenly showed up to try to eat them. THE END."

Professor Angela Quercus Oakley calmly closed the book and said, "Quite the tale and honestly doesn't sound all that exaggerated. It makes me wonder if another will come to pass next year..."
