Perhaps - and I know I'm going out on a limb here, but bear with me - just maybe it might give the impression that your name is Jason. The only logical conclusion to draw from there is that you're an ancient Greek adventurer and hero, who sails around the Mediterranean with a crew of Argonauts in search of animal hides fashioned from various precious metals; currently you're questing for the Platinum Crackling, and are trying to come up with a way to defeat the giant Lardassenes, who has swallowed the Crackling along with several packets of peanuts and your entire supply of mead.

For some reason people always think I'm fat with this nick.

Perhaps Erik should start a new thread titled 'The Naming'. Ask what your name means, etc. and he will dazzle you with his Naming Abilities! Huzzah!

Keep posting,

With some amazing animal and plant inhabitants, my favorite being the peccary. I have a soft spot for various world pigs, visiting them often at the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park. Oddly enough, I don't really care for the normal farm pig. Nor did I like "Charlotte's Web".

Good Omens is terrific, and The Wee Free Men has great humor (the Pictsies) and a wonderful protagonist. I was disappointed by A Hat Full of Sky, not nearly so engrossing as The Wee Free Men.
I'll recommend Robert Asprin's Myth books (beginning with Another Fine Myth) as good fantasy humor, although I haven't read them in years and I recall the later books peter out in quality.

In boardgames, I'll second the love of Settlers of Cataan and Puerto Rico, and I'll add Guillotine, Munchkin, and the classic Cribbage. There's something about sitting around a table with friends that hasn't yet been matched by computer gaming for me. Although my wife and I often play games "together", even if one of us, usually me, actually works the controls. We played Baldur's Gate this way and enjoyed the story and making non-combat decisions together.
Oh, and Gloom is a relatively new card game that's great for storytelling, with definite inspiration from Edward Gorey.

This is not a feature request, it is a trolling technique known as a "necrobump".
