The rushed ending certainly suggested they had some interesting things to say had they been given more time. Seems not enough viewers have any patience.

"Chuck" got like four and a half seasons and the final arc to wrap it up was terrible. For the entire series they kept giving Chuck a pair and then taking them away. Next episode he'd get 'em back at the end only to lose them again by the end of the next week. Who couldn't deal with more Yvonne?

But that show got a more than a fair shot.

No experience but I've done a lot of reading.

The F1s (that is what the first generation with one wild parent are called) are supposedly very energetic. There are rosy pictures of how great those cats are as the breeders want to sell you expensive animals. But I think the less rosy pictures tend to not find their way out. The big thing with a lot of them is you can't get them to stop spraying urine to mark territory. The animals with less and less wild blood (F2s and so on) tend to be better behaved.

One of the other things is the wild cat will often kill the domestic cats it is meant to breed with and then you have the part of taking wild cats out of the wild population for these endeavors. So you have people trying to make pets out of wild creatures.

The Bengals and Savannahs both fall into "advanced cat ownership." I'd think neighbors likely to mistake an F1 Savannah cat for a wild animal that needs "controlled" were you to let it roam the neighborhood like you might a full domestic cat. You'll want to make them indoor cats and you'll likely need to walk them like a dog. (There is at least one episode of "My Cat from Hell" with a Bengal cat and Jackson recommendation to the owners was daily long wide ranging walks.) They will demand considerable time and attention.

I'm personally inclined to think it is a bad idea and an ethically wrong idea but there are many out there on the other side. You might give this a look: http://svrescue.com/index.html

I'm thinking of getting an ocicat. All domestic. Very exotic wild look. They supposedly like to play fetch.

It is similar but the Conway doesn't have that "macro taste." They are ostensibly the same style but they are not "interchangeable" (i.e. only experienced tasters could tell them apart blindfolded) but not knowing your particular tastes I still wouldn't think you'd be wasting your money giving a sixer a go. I think the bitterness in Killian's is a bit harsher.

That sounds wonderful. Raspberries and Chocolate. I have yet to meet a chocolate beer I didn't like.

Edmund Fitzgerald, Burning River, and Christmas Ale would be my faves. Love the Blackout Stout and Nosferatu. I wish they still did the Locktender Lager or did some version/take on the Sam Adams Summer Ale. The Wright Pilsner doesn't quite do it for what I want on a summer day.

For your first time I wouldn't recommend planning for the entire weekend. Just figure on a one day visit to look around and play demos all day in the vendor room.

Comment 23 Feb 2015

Also the whole new spat of "yes means yes" laws that have been passed or will be passed play into this. Additionally there is much about other sexual assault policies on campus that come into this. Campuses are quite eager to kick young men out of school on allegations. Then we start talking about whether there is or isn't a "rape culture." That gets political in a heart beat.

I don't see how this can end up anything but a political discussion.

The new hotness is actually a combination of two separate editions. One for the European Theater and one for the Pacific (both of which are several rules revisions away from the MB Gamemasters series.) You put the maps together for nearly a three foot by four foot or therabouts gameboard. Takes days to play.

Thing is with D&D that you can fudge it to give them some adversity but without breaking their spirit.

Although I would be careful that it is indeed the role-playing game they want to play and not the various D&D minis games. The latest is Attack Wing which is more a miniatures combat game or dogfighting game but instead of planes you have dragons.

I own more than one version of "Axis and Allies" and serve as a go to source for rules questions on a few of them on a popular A&A website. I own more than a few binders of CCG cards.

As we say around the comic shop, "If it keeps you off the tower..."
