    "Hey man, you playing Godfather the game?" Seeing a puzzled look on my face he repeats the question. -"No I didn't play that game." -"Well you should." And then they went they way.

    Encounter number 2:
    >2 or 3 am
    > walking home from a dnd session, no one around except a group of guys walking on the other side of the street
    As they walk past me one says "Check that (fashion) model. He looks like Aragorn.

    >About a decade ago, driving on my way home from work. Car breaks down (alternator burned out, leaving my car with little power and unable to start up on the side of the road). I'm sitting there waiting for my ride, and a tow-truck, when an elderly woman comes walking by. The road is wooded, no sidewalks, and I'm at an abandoned gas-station lot, so there's not much around to walk to or from. Lady say Hi, and then comments that it is unusual to see someone with red in their beard and mustache, yet brown hair. She then asks if it's from my Dad's genes, which I confirm. She then just walks off behind the abandoned gas-station. Never see her again while I wait another hour for my ride.

    Yeah, but it's still one of the few US cities I'd be willing to live in... provided I could afford it. Seattle can also be weird at times. There was a Midget who would ride through Capitol Hill on a Razor Scooter, buck-naked. He moved to San Fransisco a while ago.

    We also have a male cross-dresser on Broadway who stands on a corner handing out free newspapers. It's bizarre shit like that as to why I love this city.

    That wouldn't work. Lightbulbs are filled with an inert gas. If you somehow manage to break the bulb without breaking the filament, the light still goes out.

    No, you'll have to find another ignition method.

    For in-game purposes only, of course.

    Toronto is personally my favorite Canadian city, with the next being Victoria. Nothing wrong with Toronto, IMO. Seattle's nice, but traffic is absolutely shitty. Other cities may have more cars on their freeways, but in Seattle they don't go anywhere. San Fransisco is great, and the mass-transit is wonderful, but the cost of living is fuck-tarded.

    As long as the light's OFF, the filament's unharmed. And as >>14558925 said, when you flip the switch, the filament pops, we get a spark, and boom, no more house.

    The plan involves turning on the gas, and leaving the lightbulb on, implying that while you get away, the gas eventually fills up the room to the lightbulb and ignites, but the exposed filament would burn out long before the gas ever reached it.

    They were asking if you were poor in a derogatory way. If you have stairs in your house, you probably either have a basement, or a second floor, and thus are not poor. They probably asked with the assumption you were poor because you were waving.

    Most people that live around here have fairly big houses; my house, that I share with four other people + a 10 y/o kid, isn't that big compared to people around me, but it's still 5 bedrooms and 2 baths. It's in rural MS where we have a lot of space. Even if I was trailer park poor, I'd still have stairs connected to the house... so that doesn't quite make sense.

    Then again, most random encounters don't make sense.

    >Backed against a wall, I'm going to get killed by like 5 drunk dudes
    >Out of fucking nowhere, someone dashes from an alley and basically bull rushes one, knocking him into the canal
    >Within a few seconds I hear resounding metal as they wail into the others with a metal bat, I look and see it's a girl about my age
    >She grabs my hand and pulls me hard, dragging me at a full run down the streets while we leave 2 sprawled out on the ground and the other 2 chase us
    >Cue a 10-15 minute solid run, trying to elude two drunk and angry Indians, and get to who knows where
    >Eventually we loose them, and she starts yelling at me about something, though I'm shaking and can't understand her
    >I guess she realizes, and leads me to a cafe type place where she sits us down and orders food
    >Over the course of an hour we try and understand each other but she only seems to understand a handful of English words while I understand nothing she says
    >Still, we understand one another on a different level, and come time to go I feel like we're good friends

    At the end, she gave me a card with the name of some local college. Before leaving she kissed me on the cheek and headed off into the night, apparently to fight crime to the best of my knowledge.

    Craziest fucking thing that ever happened to me. Still kind of sad I never got to see her again. Pic related, my feelings for the rest of the Europe trip.

    It's not wrong to admit you don't understand something, especailly when I probably didn't explain it well enough:
    It was standing outside waving to cars as they were passing by in an attempt to drum up business for the company I work for - a tax company. I'm usually inside doing other marketing related activities or out advertising at places(schools, malls, other businesses and what have you) but as the tax season is drawing to a close, there's not much left for me to do. So instead of taking off and not getting paid(something I do not wish to do as I'm uncertain when I will be able to get a new job), I simply go outside, grab a sign, and wave at the oncoming traffic.

    The kids who do it get paid $9/hour(well above min. wage), I get paid $15/hour. To compare, my uncle who is a senior electrician gets something in the neighborhood of $25/hour.

    Not at all. I have plenty of friends south of the border (Canadafag here). I know quite well that it is a wide and varied country and that assholes live on both sides of the border.

    If you were to generalize the countries feelings towards each other, it would be more like Canada has a vague sense of bemusement, superiority and worry towards the US and the US is just fucking confused by Canada.

    A friend of mine actually got stabbed while walking home in the state of drunkenness. He only survived because he was stabbed from behind and had a backpack with some bottles in it on. The bottles stopped the knife from getting deeper and it failed to reach the kidney. By <1cm.
    Another guy in the same town (<5.000 citizen) got stabbed to death in the same night. Nobody was found responsible afterwards.

    Also it all happened in Germany, about 5 years ago. Ok, it was East Germany near the Polish border, but nevertheless.

    You make them yourself - at least thats what I did. 3 months and 7 kg 2mm steel fence wire later and I had myself a full sleeve chainmail. (thats 14 pounds of steel and ~0.1 inch wire).

    I tested it with a few reinactment mates and it actually holds up to a regular long sword. We packed it on a bag of sand and the bag held with only a few rings comming loose. Was a quick repair afterwards.

    Alternatively you buy them online but they are fucking expensive and the porto is a bad joke.

    Walking down the street when I notice a guy walking in my direction, he looks like a tall dwarf, bald, bearded and glowering furiously at me. As he walks past me he suddenly tries to give me a ferocious shove, but he's telegraphing he's going to do something ever since I laid eyes on him so I just get jostled, caught unawares he'd probably have made me fall.

    He keeps walking as I turn around and observe him, wondering wtf. A teenage kid is walking behind me and he too gets shoved, also without much effect as he probably saw me. Also I signaled to him to beware.

    Kid walks up to where I am and we both watch the angry dwarf keep on walking. I make some comment like "he mad" and the kid (Who is about 17, wearing gym clothes like he'd just come out of school) goes "Yeah, hey do you know where you can find a whorehouse around here?"

    I tell him to check on the internet while keeping a poker face.

    Which town?

    Also my childhood friend/neighbour (from the time we was about 8 or 9) hired a killer to go after her dad when she was 18, apparently because he gave her too little pocket money. The dad however somehow found out and the whole rather soon became the neighbourhood's next gossip.

    Apparently the rings were cheap as fuck. Or maybe she did it the way you described it and I just don't remember correctly.
    The wire she uses is also rather thick, so making the rings out of wire would probably need a lot of time and effort.

    AB '09? That's where I saw this creepy fucker.

    I was the dude walking around in the robe, goggles and chainsword. If you heard a really loud scream on Saturday or Sunday, on the top floor, near the escalator, that was cause some female tyrannid player tackled, hugged and bit me for my costume.

    So naturally that whole few hours that they hung around with me, I hit on her, completely ignoring her necron-playing boyfriend. Because fuck 'crons.

    Nah, this was probably in '05 or '06. Last year was the first AB I've ever missed, looking forward to this year.

    One year I was the random encounter at AB in FOE form.

    Considering most of my clothing is all dark colors, yes. I actually force myself to take one of the few bright colored shirts I own, and pull it over my sweatshirts or at least tie it around my neck like a derpy cape.

    It may look retarded, but at least I won't look like a rapist.

    I have quite a few random encounters but most of them are from Japan when visiting the city; but it's usually passed off since it's usually just cosplayers or something similar. (Cosplayers are not as a common as it sounds unless in Ikebukuro or similar.)

    > Get on Shinkansen train from Aomori to Tokyo
    > Notice a bunch of people dressed up like bosozoku cheering, dancing, and laughing.
    > Disregard it, maybe some sort of cosplay convention is nearby or some sort of fake yankee/Boso meet.
    > As soon as the door close everyone sits down immediately and it becomes instantly quiet.
    > they stare each other for a good 15 minutes of the train ride making soundeffects. jiii jiii jiii (the sound of staring), zawa zawa zawa (the sound of uneasyness) and so on. (made weirder since these trains are setup like airplanes so they look over seats to infront and behind them to stare at them.
    > Suddenly reach the first stop and everyone gets up and starts screaming and cheering for a good 2 minutes before the door closes again
    > They do this 3 times the entire way there. People come in between stops equally confused.
    > Get off at Nagoya noticing they're still cheering.
    > While walking up platform I notice the train pass by, everyone still staring at eachother.

    Don't have any superhero outfits.

    I do have a Revan costume, though.

    No one would expect an ancient Sith Lord out for a morning jog to be a rapist.

    Eh, I just happen to like shirts with graphics, that all happen to be black. And it's just by chance that out of the 6 to 8 sweatshirts I wear from day to day, I have 3 that are not black, or close to it. I had others that were other colors, but they're too small now. Or worn out as fuck to the point of being unwearable.

    Revan had his shit together, though. Most of the others were all herp derp retarded.

    Birds use me as a form of suicide. I am personally responsible for no fewer than 20 counts of vehicular ornicide.

    I have killed 10+ pigeons, about 5 doves, a turkey, a chicken, a few swallows, and a buzzard. The smaller birds just like to fly in front of my car on the highway, and a lot of the time one of them just doesn't make it and I hit it. The chicken was running from a coyote, flapped over a fence, and ended up landing in front of me as I was trying NOT to hit it. The turkey was crossing the freeway, and I tried to swerve when I saw it, but it stopped moving instead of continuing, so I hit it anyway, and it skidded across the road.

    The buzzard was swooping in at an awkward angle to get at some deer, and I clipped it because I never saw it coming.

    It baffles me to this day, TWO WHEELS! TWO WHEELS!


    We'd had a rat problem up on the hill where we store the junk after the containers by the ramp fill up, I'm not sure of the full details but the guy had a license and a rifle so he figured that he'd take care of it, the aforementioned night comes around and he sees these assholes trying to break into the storage, roll for intimidate.

    He tells the shits to get the fuck out while brandishing his gun, they get out ASAP. Pic related

    Apparently they steal the shit to sell it back in home, fucking russians man. It's partly why the dump was moved closer to the industrial zone. Happened after my contract ended though, looks pretty fucking nice now and the ramp has 3 lanes of space instead of 1.
