And when you get old, your reading skills are the first things to go - I'm sure joey talks to himself on a daily basis.

I took my son to a yugioh gathering earlier this year - I believe it's safe to say that you don't want to be a late teen/young adult and play yugioh, at least not if you want to have a chance to partake of other pastimes that I recall were of paramount importance when I was that age.

I've heard that "Munchkin" is kind of like Weird Al - funny once, maybe twice, but grows stale quickly.

If Joey needs something to do, perhaps he can get into Warhammer gaming.
Top
Posted by Brian A. Reed (+6014) 12 years ago
Munchkin is pretty fun if you take it for what it is. There are enough different sets that you can mix/match to make it interesting. Plus, there are a lot of ways to make up your own rules.
Top
Posted by Nathan Miles (+20) 12 years ago
ahh munchkin. the more sets you have, the more fun it can get... try playing a game with EVERY set from the original up through Munckin: IMPOSSIBLE. or better yet. EVERY SET TO DATE. and if thats not insane enough for you (i think that deck is about 3-4 feet tall) play an epic game.

as for yugi-oh, i never much like that system, but if you stand near the cards section at wally's, you should see who buys them all up.

Joey, I'll admit that there's a lot of grim, humorless curmudgeons on mc.com (not myself, obviously, but Brian, Gunnar, and Wendy for starters), who have some difficulty in looking past the less than grammatically orthodox nature of your posts to discern what it is you are trying to communicate.

A lot of the english grammar that we are taught is silly - particularly the attempts to pretend that the germanic language of English should follow Latinate grammatical conventions. And let's not even start upon the horror of spelling written English, which is a tangled maze of corner case upon corner case.

But until we perfect the neo-cortical interface plug, written English is the primary mode of communication on forums in English-speaking countries, and so it's what we have to use. Given that, how and what we write is our primary representation to one another - it's what forms our initial and ongoing perceptions of our fellow posters. If you write in a sloppy and disorganized manner, then it will be assumed by people who otherwise have no interactions with you, that you are also sloppy and disorganized. This is entirely unfair, but it's the way the world works.

Speaking of the way the world works - if you're in high school, then you are a few very very short years away from joining the rest of us in (if you'll forgive a cliche) "the real world". Congratulations! I understand the breadlines in the Dubyavilles are going to be awesome. Now, I don't want to be in a breadline, and I'm guessing that you don't either - but you need to understand that grim and humorless curmudgeons are drawn to employment that gives them the power to determine the employment opportunities of others, and if (for example) your resume or application essay is a steaming mass of run-on sentences and misspelled words, then you will have some difficulty achieving your goals.

But all is not lost my little baby kangaroo - every time you sit down to write something is an opportunity to practice and establish good habits. If you have a learning disorder (dyslexia, disgraphia, etc) then every opportunity that you have to write is an opportunity for you to practice and strengthen your coping mechanisms. Use tools that do some of the work for you (firefox, for example, is very helpful with misspelled words). You are the one who is responsible for how people perceive you.

Wow, how did this post get to be so long?
Top
Posted by Brian A. Reed (+6014) 12 years ago
Joey - I just don't appreciate being called "bord" or stupid by someone who has already exhibited a great deal of difficulty in spelling simple words. In other words, people who can't spell shouldn't throw stones. Or something like that.

I'm not a "walking dictionary" but I have a fairly decent vocabulary and a pretty good grasp of the English language. If I can't spell a word, I look it up before I post it (and no, I don't have a 100% success rate at this - I misspelled "annihilate" the other day, for instance). Call it "taking pride in oneself" or "accountability" or whatever you like.

And as Bridgier mentioned, if you think anyone was harsh on you here, just imagine what would happen when it comes to a scholarship or job application. Your submission would be discarded without a second look. This isn't said to be cruel, but helpful.

For your benefit, I suggest you learn how to do at least two things:

1.) Realize the nature of the forums on milescity.com. They're GOING to go off-topic.

2.) Take a joke and don't pass up the opportunity to learn something.

Good luck in finding a Yu-Gi-Oh(!) group in Miles City. I wish you well.

P.S.) Bridgier, I am not a "humorless curmudgeon." It's snarky bastard!

It's pistols at dawn, sir!

Kudos to joey. He may not be able to spell but he has out-testicled you good ole boys. Way to go, joey! Keep it up! (npi)

Back when I was your age there was an advertisement for Timex watches. I know, it's hard (npi) to believe they ever had ads for anything other than Extenz (hey, don't blame me - I'm just staying in touch (npi) with the testicle theme in this thread).

Anyway, the ad's tagline was "Takes a lickin' and keep on tickin'!" (no comment) By giving back as good as you get, you've proven worthy of that praise!

Now, if you'd like some additional help with your spelling and grammar (a need that a lot of young folks who can drive but can't buy beer yet seem to have), I know a woman at MCC who can help.

If you kick the cartoon heroin and get a job at Mickey D's, I promise you, you will thank me. Having experienced employment at Mickey D's in the unfortunately and increasingly distant past, I can tell you it's a pretty good time.

I thought for sure by now there would be an enterprising bookie laying odds on this one. So, what are the odds as YOU see 'em:

Best MC.com Hoax In a Long Time* vs. World's Worst Speller

Since I now think joey's been playing YuDumOhs! on us all along, I'd give it 3:1. And the longer he takes to respond, the better they get.

****
It just occurred to me - The last time there was this much interest in finding out the real identity of a fellow MC.commie was the great "Nothing" thread. Ah, those were the days!

Those few false identities that sprung up after Eric's sudden exit from the MC.com scene were too easily and quickly solved to count.

Well, that little adventure was short lived. I was hoping for something more along the lines of "Who is JT?" Oh well. It was fun while it lasted, but I guess (for now at least) we have to take joey's word that he is indeed "joey". But I'm definitely keeping my eyes open.

I don't think anything can top the "nothing" thread for ongoing drama and daily escalation. And I hope it stays that way. The whole mugshot thing is "nothing" that the better part of me cares to see repeated again. The other part - well, who among us can really turn away from watching a train wreck?

Finally, joey, I can't provide the answer you have been waiting for so patiently (or not!) - but I think it's safe to say that it's become fairly clear that there are no YuGiOh! fans lurking in the hallways of MC.com.

Now c'mon Wendy. You can't just throw in the towel like that. In fact, neither YOU nor Brian can be "the decider" of when joey drives you over the edge. Nope, I'm going to need to see real evidence of loss of sanity -- and by the time you (or Brian) get THAT bad, your opinions won't be very reliable. Sorry, but that's the sad truth.

So, Wendy and Brian, just keep reading and posting - and we'll see how long it takes for one of you to end up "ass over teakettle" as the Brits say.

As for you, joey -- no more "good spelling/bad spelling" stunts. Just do your best - er, worst - er, best - well, just be U. That's all I ask. And might I add that you are probably the worst speller I've ever witnessed, but you also have a great sense of humor and an incredible amount of -- what? -- pluck?

i retain all the info about the books i read very well in fact i find it fun to think about the book later and just go over it in my head.and as for you well..... its a wonder you made it past grade school!!

My criticisms of you and your writing have at least been done in an attempt to be constructive, Joey. You're just flinging insults (and not even plausible ones). If you're going to insist on flinging insults, I suggest not bringing the proverbial knife to a gunfight.

The reason I questioned your retention is because in my experience (which is substantially longer than yours), the ability to spell, capitalize and punctuate nearly always goes hand in hand with the ability to read (you see, books are usually written with proper spelling, capitalized letters and correct punctuation - not always, but far more often than not).

If you are indeed as voracious a reader as you've claimed to be, logic would dictate that there should be a direct correlation between your reading and writing ability. Since you have exhibited loathesome grammar and have shown a troubling reluctance to improve it, it leads me to doubt the claims of your "profound" reading prowess.

Hey Congratulations joey. Your "yugioh" thread just hit 100 posts. I bet you never thought it would generate so much discussion, eh? I know Brian sure didn't!

Buck - I think labeling him a troll gives him too much credit.

I think it's time we stopped picking on Joey. He has enough going on in his life as a teenager without having to deal with "grownups" lecturing him on his spelling and grammar. He's not listening to you anyway.

BTW joey, "its and it's". Do you know the difference?

Once in awhile, spelling does make a difference.

Maybe joey isn't a real person (remember, I laid out 3:1 odds that he wasn't), but that is no longer the point:

Joey is definitely a real character.

Say hi to J.T. Spaulding for me, would ya joey?

Wendy - the only person picking on Joey is himself.

I stopped advocating for better treatment of joey a while ago. I figure if he can't take it, he'll let us know in very clear - if misspelled - terms.

If he is a real person, I admire his ability to roll with the best of 'em.

If he is a created character, I admire the person 'behind the curtain.'

Well, joey, there have been lawsuits involving millions of dollars over the misplacement of commas in contracts. So yes, I think the difference between "its" and "it's" is important. But as long as you aren't planning to be a contract writer I guess you can spell any way you want.

HaHa Brian. I've always wanted to be president, and my platform would certainly be based on ethical treatment of people - even Ricardo and others who don't really deserve it...

Well, maybe not Cheney. My charity only goes so far, and there is wisdom in the old "live by the sword, die by it" maxim.

(and for those who are keeping count (like Jimbo), yes, I've worked Cheney into this thread twice. I'm trying to give the Kacey/Palin connection a run for the money)

Ever seen "Shaka Zulu," Steve? That show will give you some ideas for Nosferatu Cheney.

I haven't seen that film, Brian, but I will. One can never have enough vampire-slaying survival techniques at their disposal.

On another note, I have seen the original Nosferatu. Creepy film, but it didn't scare me one bit - mainly because the creature/vampire looked for all the (under)world like my paternal grandmother.

Two words, Steve: vertical impalement. Not a good way to go.

Surely there is ONE word for that, but to find it we'd need to look in the Urban Dictionary - and that's much more frightening than any vampire!

joey: This is becoming really annoying. Grow up and at least attempt to start posting your thoughts using the English language. No, I am not perfect at it, but at least I try. You are intentionally not trying. Your misspellings, text speak, and such are no longer entertaining.

Sorry, joey, I don't know where you can find a Preschool Observation Checklist & Evaluation Tool dictionary. Nor do I have a Parents' Organization for Children with Epilepsy in Tanzania dictionary. Nor did I know that you speak Czechoslovakian.
