August 10th is National S'More Day. Thank God, I almost missed it. This calls for s'mores and Night of the Comet.

#rant I freely admit, I had a problem when Wait Wait Don't Tell Me put this person on. I really truly love the show and what attracts me is the high level of intellectual humor and intelligence that is celebrated.

However, I felt that putting her on the show was like The People Of Wal-Mart where you can sit back and make fun of the rednecks. However, in this case, it was sitting back and making fun of someone who lacks a great deal of intellectual fortitude.

I get why they did it, and I am far from a "monk" as the article describes. However, I really do feel like they had her on as a freak/sideshow act where they could show how superior they are by making fun of the less mentally enabled.

I would imagine that at this point, he could cast miniatures blindfolded. Though, that has some pretty obvious drawbacks.

Those floating bits of land are spectacular. Impressive modeling. I am totally stealing those.

So, I learned that "fat washing" of spirits is a thing.

I thought this may have been a fringe evangelical thing.  I'm actually less disgusted by the truth than what my mind had already conjured.

Oh man, so very much this. This is especially true if you work in a support position, try a couple of standard things that you know won't work but somehow do.

You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don't wanna know about it, believe me.
Introduction
Actually, you are probably looking for the other Scott Croom....the one that doesn't like tabletop wargames, cooking, role playing, cycling, disc golf, OS/2......even my hobbies are curmudgeonly. So get off my lawn you kids.

I really disc golf and wargames. I also collect stamps. I also love painting miniatures, see pictures above. I am a very big fan of The Army Painter paints, especially with the release of their new line. There is also a nascent blog I do at http://www.yawargame.blogspot.com I am especially interested in DBA, Aeronef, Guntz, FUBAR,  Uncharted Seas, Hind Commander,  Arkham Horror, Fluxx, Atomic Highway, Killer Bunnies, and OSRPGs. 

Former Wall Streeter and engineering teacher that works in social media management.
