But seriously, when in the history of mankind has a thread on IMG not been derailed at some point?
Truer words never spoken. I don't even know whats going on anymore.

I'm the worst offender of all.  The only way I get into trouble it seems is with my own big mouth.  I want to apologize to ipickert55 and Janichsan and especially to Matt Diamond who I know this has driven crazy in the past.  I promise hereon after to never derail a thread nor to contribute to a thread that has been derailed.  My apologies again to all this has annoyed.  It stops now.

Um... I meant to leave a note saying my nemesis HAZMAT should deal with your trunk but during the confusing rush to make my getaway I realized only just now that I plum forgot.  Sorry.  I think I might owe you a couple years of your life back.  But hey if it doesn't kill you, it makes you that much weaker.... STRONGER.  I meant stronger.  Stronger.  Yeah that's it, that's the ticket.  Stronger.

Hey people check me out, I knew Sneaky Snake before he was famous.  That by osmosis makes me a little bit internet famous too, sorta kinda in a way almost.  I could introduce him to you if you want. OMG I'm posting this on facebook!

I've been to that site before, that guy has no credibility.  I'm surprised that you give it any weight.

Rakden is trying not to get his nuts nailed to the wall for violating NDA.  His information is not available to the public.  If you have ears then listen.

I expect most here don't know what I do for a living so carry on.

You people should know that Macdude pushes little buttons for a living or some such silly occupation.  But if you heard him griping on Discord every Saturday night about it you would think he was some sort of overloaded pack mule, whipping boy, and company bed pan.

Clearly I know nothing. :teehee:

I just wanted to step in here to verify Macdude's claim.  Just ask his wife.

The only games I play mobile are hidden object games, nothing you'd be likely to port Miss Ellie.  But still, because coffee, I'll tell you.  What I want in a travel game is immersion, and that is really a subjective thing and comes from the user not the app.  A game that is immersive takes me out of the airport and into the theatre of my mind.  I guess this fits into the category of "endless distraction".

All of those serious words I wrote at the start of the post triggered an equal and opposite reaction.  It's physics son.  As inescapable as a gravity well.

I recommend Discord as the communication app.  It has chat where you can post messages, images, or video and it is a great app to make group voice calls.  I believe it was made for gaming, so your app would be "on topic" for what that's worth.

Also I can give a lecture to your class, I have some experience talking to a class from Fallout 4 where I told a Vault 81 classroom about my struggles as a vault dweller in the outside world.  Almost all of them survived.  I'll make sure to go real gentle-like on them like I did the Fallout kids.

All I ask in return is tuna up front and a get away car.  Oh, and if you have any string dangling on a stick I'll take that too.

Hey 2 nights ago Steel Toe and Big Jaw came back to the same spot at the Red Rocket!  I've never seen two deathclaws together before and now twice in the same spot at the Red Rocket.  This time Steel Toe was a legendary!  He managed to take out two of the turrets before he succumbed to his wounds.  I guess after Steel Toe respawned from the first tragic visit he figured that he should play elsewhere until he felt that he was buffed enough for the raid.

He would have made a great Mr. Woodcock the hard assed gym coach.  Besides physical acting he did a lot of voice acting for games and TV.  All that was icing on the cake, he had me at full metal jacket.  I swear I had that ass hole as a drill instructor, funny as hell, brutal as a head on collision.

Recently in Fallout 4:

And the coveted Fallout 4 2018 Darwin Award goes to... Steel Toe and Big Jaw.

I just got jumped by two deathclaws at once.  Too bad for them that they found me in front of the Red Rocket under 4 turrets and 2 attack dogs where my  8 heavily armed companions all hole out.  They were gone almost before they were there.  You could hardly see them from all the tracers vectoring into them.

The first deathclaw, Steel Toe, must have said, "Hey let's swing by the Red Rocket and see who we can scare out of their pants derp.  

The second deathclaw, Big Jaw, probably said something like, "I don't know, doesn't a vault dweller live there now derp?

I'm guessing that Steel Toe came back with something like, "Have you ever seen a human?  They are so scrawny that they would fry down to a little gob of grease, hardly a meal for one of us.  What could go wrong?  It'l be fun derp."
