    Cardgame Thread (guilds of ravnica mechanics spoiled!)

    Totally related to my prior post but at the same time not, General Spoon and I hang out on Fridays at Fantasy Flight Games in Roseville, Minnesota. If you are ever in the area and are interested in hanging out, let us know. We play a wide variety of tabletop games.

    Not a hiring manager, but I can say for certain that calling the company to follow up on you submitting your resume is a smart idea. The worst that could happen is that they tell you they had other candidates and it’s not the end of the world. On the flip side, it shows your interest and...

    It is that time of year. I just wanted to say that it's been a long time coming. I finally graduated with my Bachelor's of Science in English Teaching from Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, MN. I also received my TESOL/TEFL certification from Oxford Seminars, and I'm currently...

    Hearthstone [IRC Channel #Skillstone]

    Yeah after playing more games, I think Harrison is wayyyy better than Mosh. The value from destroying a vinecleaver and the like is just too good.

    Hearthstone [IRC Channel #Skillstone]

    So I've been playing this Grinder Control Warrior deck and it is quite fun, even in this aggro meta. The main highlight of the deck is Gorehowl, which I run two copies of. This allows you to activate Deadly Arsenal, which clears just about any board (barring 8hp boards, where you back up DA...

    All done: It took me as long as it did mostly because of my having been very busy the last couple weeks with few points in time that I was able to actually sit down and do the work. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. It's probably my most detailed work and took the longest to...

    Here's where I am atm. I plan on using a sponge to remove some of the paint to help help the violet in the hat and the clothing to stand out. I also made a minor error in painting by forgetting to include leaves on the left vine of the swing, but alas I shall have to work with what I shall...

    Thanks! I'll look into getting some of that liquid rubber since I have been struggling with trying to paint around spots I want to keep white. I'll be stopping by Michael's or Blick tomorrow! :)

    I just finished another piece recently and am working on another one. Here is the first piece: It is based on a photograph that my cousin took in Big Sky, Montana seven years ago while we were on a family trip. For reference: Not perfect by any means of course, but the purpose of the...

    Languages and Linguistics

    Здравствуйте! Меня очень жалко для людей которые будут учится русский язык. (Hello! I feel bad for people that are going to learn the Russian language.) Russian is tough. Also I concur with Rugi, Chinese is fairly easy to learn grammar-wise. My only biggest trouble when I was learning it...

    Half-siblings

    Seeing as the topic of adoption has come up here in this thread, I have three adopted siblings, and of the three, I get along quite well with two of them. The third, well, let's just say he went off the deep end and got into bad stuff, but that's mostly because he already had a traumatic past...

    Quitting caffeine

    Tea is a great way to go. Just make sure if you go Herbal that you don't start drinking Chamomile, lol. I would recommend Rooibos tea or doing a blend with rose hips/dried fruit/ginger. Those are all great options that also all taste great. Rooibos also has the benefits of Green tea while...

    Nintendo Switch

    That sounds unusual. I would contact Nintendo and they will have you send your controller in and they'll fix it for you. Depending on when you purchased your Switch, it may be something they won't charge you at all for.
