I'm going to have another consultation tomorrow about the scars on my face.

I may have already gotten my ass in debt for this, but at least you can't say I never tried.

Still alive. Trying to juggle work, studies, dating and free time.

I'd like to see Brandon answer this question, actually. Last I heard he was on the verge of homelessness. How's he doing?

In case anyone is looking for a more active forum (that also has some old GamingSteve members), you can check out the Speculative Evolution board.

Since I and many other forum members came here because of Spore, I thought this board may be of interest to some.

Oh hey it is November!
You know what that means?

Because I don't. I don't know what anything means anymore. I took a quiz to tell me what kind of quiz I was and it told me I was a dumb quiz. The world is and has always been confusing.

Also please don't let this community die.

I know it's slightly more work than some places, but it's the only place online I don't feel like my participation is being soul-crushingly gamified by a points/likes system, or picked apart for a corporate branding agenda, or the political machinations of Russian internet trolls or someone else.

A lot of the huge other social sites leave me with this weird sick unsatisfied empty feeling, like everyone's competing and trying to destroy each other and there's no warmth.

We have had our ups, downs, problems, and undeniable drama here. It's not as fast paced as some other places. But I genuinely feel better after spending time here than I do sooo many places online. I don't know.

A crowd-sourced, algorithm based editorial voice isn't necessarily bad, but it gets reaaaal tiresome and repetitive.
I want this place, flaws and all.

I agree wholeheartedly. Posting on Reddit just kills my soul. This place warms my heart.

Tired of Pokemon Go? There's a new game called Draconius Go, which is basically a Pokemon Go copycat, that actually includes some features that Pokemon Go has been missing. I think the greatest part is that it allows you to play in rural areas and forests, something that should have been integral to Pokemon Go in the first place.

Hey Irish people, you okay after Ophelia?

Here in Dublin it was pretty disappointing. Huge fuss in the city, people here didn't know what to expect at all. Went into work and everyone was complaining that everyone else they knew had had their work cancelled. Eventually the boss came in to a sea of displeased faces and made the call. All public transport got suspended for the day a couple hours later so it was a good thing - I would've been stuck.

But then it came and it sucked/blew (I was hoping for something a little more dramatic), it was real windy but not dangerously so. We did lose our doormat though. RIP. We also lost power from 9pm to midnight.

My dad was down south in rural Cork and it was way worse there, it blew the roof off a school. The country had three deaths, all from falling trees.

Yesterday the weather was back to being perfectly normal, except the trees are noticeably more bare than before.

And we have "Storm Brian" coming over the weekend, too! Thanks, climate change!


Hear hear, more death and destruction! Thank god for storm Brian, may it mow down the rest of Ireland.

Finland gets temperate climate from the gulf stream and no major storms. Win-win!
