Perhaps you should provide links to past bars in the history section.

Oh, and in honor of the release of Ender's Game I propose a new drink.

The Little Doctor.

It may be an MD, but trust me, it won't be fixing you up anytime soon.

Yes, I know I'm early with that, but I can't wait. If they fail to do the book justice (as the trailers imply they may) I will personally hunt down and kill every member of the production team, forum Code of Conduct be hanged.

*Continues tinkering with the device, as if on cue, a cannon blasts and explodes in my face*

Well this can't possibly get any worse... I've used almost everything from A-Y. Don't ask about Z. There is a reason why I don't use the Z items...

I'm thinking of doing a fantasy RP, preferably something low-management that I can do at the same time as LVH.

I've never done one before, and would like to try my hand at the genre...

Had an interesting religious insight (holiday season does this to me).

One thing that always bugged me about the story of Jesus' death is the fact that he was only dead for three days. I mean, sheesh. He knew he was getting resurrected, and for an eternal being three days is nothing. Hardly seems like a big deal, so why should his Father be grieving and everything? Minor separation.

Then I thought of places in sci-fi where you see beings capable of thinking extremely quickly. Some characters, intelligent machines particularly (such as Speaker for the Dead's Jane or the unnamed android in that bit Zanon posted), experience a second as a much longer period of time (like when Ender gets mad at Jane and turns of his link with her for an hour: for her it's ten thousand years of loneliness).

If a computer could do this, surely an omnipotent being would take it to the extreme.

My conclusion: to God, every second is an eternity. Thus, to Him he was parted from His son for an eternity. Kind of put in perspective for me.

/end religious rambling.

Very interesting. Since God is outside of time, this seems like a logical conclusion.

Although... I'm not sure here was the best place to put this. I still enjoyed it, though.

I propose we set up a fund to purchase a copy of Ender's Game for Crymson. We would not be true friends nor sci-fi fans if we allowed any one of our number to continue in Enderlessness.

You know...
after I read it...

I am ashamed of you people. Not reading a great piece of art as Ender's Game.

I wash my hands of this weirdness.
