The manager was doing her best and was completely polite unlike you.
Amazing book, and in the top 10 for highest rated Epic Fantasy books on Amazon.
John Schnatter aka "Papa" a Centi-Millionaire and supporter of Mitt Romney made a statement the other day regarding the Affordable Healthcare act.
Basically saying that it would raise the costs of doing business.
He mentioned that since the Affordable Healthcare act is only required for workers who work over 30 hours a week the chain will probably cut the hours workers get so they can't get insurance.
Forbes did the analysis and figured out that Papa Johns would just have raise the price of a pizza less than 5 cents to cover the cost of providing healthcare to it's employees.
Rather than charge consumers 5 cents more it would rather screw over it's employees.
It just doesn't seem right when this guy is rich as hell that he has no concern over his employees.
This article breaks down the exact details:
I wanted something obscure that most people wouldn't get the reference too but still looked fantasy based, and nice looking.
How does this look?
I'd be surprised if anyone gets both references :)
I haven't posted in this community yet, but thought I would share something that happened from our game this weekend.
Our party is currently 3rd level and we have (Dex Fighter, War Priest, TWF Ranger, Bard, Illusionist). My character is the dex based fighter with shield and rapier, and has 17 base AC and 19 with defensive duelist (reaction on hit).
With the Dodge action every round, Second Wind, Parry Maneuver, Inspiration from Bard, and Defensive Duelist feat was able to hold a choke point against 10 Orcs and one Ogre for 12 rounds :)
The Orcs eventually moved out of the way so the Ogre could perform a grab action on me. At that point everything went to hell but it was an epic feeling at the end of the fight for everyone to scrape through with less than 10 HP and avoid a TPK.
Just commenting on how unbelievably awesome Dodge is for giving disadvantage when fighting multiple enemies.
The Cosmic SciFi Bundle at http://StoryBundle.com/SciFi is available only until Wednesday night. It includes works by Anne McCaffrey and Jody Lynn Nye, Frank Herbert, Jay Lake and Ken Scholes, Michael A. Stackpole, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Mike Resnick, Kevin J. Anderson and Doug Beason, and Peter J. Wacks, along with me, Brandon Sanderson. This is a great lineup, and in the tradition of bundles like this, you can name your price and receive six of these ebooks, and if you pay more than $12 you receive the first six as well as Legion, Crisis on Doona, and Perfectly Invisible. All are DRM-free. You can also decide what the split should be between the authors and the Storybundle organizers, and you can optionally pick how much should go to the Clayton Memorial Medical Fund, the preferred charity chosen by Jay Lake before he passed away on June 1st after a long and hard-fought battle with cancer.
Please do note that my novella Legion is the only part of the bundle that can’t be included worldwide for licensing reasons—it’s not in the bundle if you buy it from the UK or Commonwealth/former Commonwealth countries (except for Canada, where it is included in the bundle). I apologize for throwing this wrench into things, but my UK publisher has exclusive distribution rights in those countries.
I have 5 download codes to give away here on Google+. So let’s do a little contest—just hit the Share button (with the ➦ arrow) on this picture (at the original URL: https://plus.google.com/+BrandSanderson/posts/W1CBtaB4Ap3 ) and say why you like this bundle or any of my books, mark your share as Public, and you’re entered. At the end of 24 hours from when I posted this, we’ll give away download codes to the posts with the top 2 most Likes, and the other 3 winners will be selected randomly from valid entrants.
Who can enter? Anyone who is geographically able to include Legion in downloading from StoryBundle. If you’re not sure whether your country counts as a UK/Commonwealth/former Commonwealth country, go to StoryBundle.com and click on the cover image for Legion; if you’re in one of those countries the page will display a warning.
Legion is a fast-paced, witty, and supremely fun thriller with a psychological bent.
Stephen Leeds is perfectly sane. It’s his hallucinations who are mad.
A genius of unrivaled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people—Stephen calls them aspects—to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems . . . for a price.
His brain is getting a little crowded, however, and the aspects have a tendency of taking on lives of their own. When a company hires him to recover stolen property—a camera that can allegedly take pictures of the past—Stephen finds himself in an adventure crossing oceans and fighting terrorists. What he discovers may upend the foundation of three major world religions—and, perhaps, give him a vital clue into the true nature of his aspects.
Later this year Subterranean Press will be releasing a limited edition hardcover of Legion‘s sequel, Legion: Skin Deep, which you can preorder here: http://subterraneanpress.com/store/product_detail/legion_skin_deep and read a preview of here: http://brandonsanderson.com/legion-skin-deep If you haven’t read the original Legion, this new bundle is a great way to whet your appetite and get ready for the sequel.
