I'm sure Art Briles appreciates your support.

It's interesting that people are leaping to conclusions that have nothing to do with what St X has actually said. He hasn't attacked men of faith, he specifically pointed out that he respects former Ohio State coaches for their faith. 

Perhaps for some it would be a good time to reread Matthew 6.

You'll appreciate this... By the time I attended the character building retreat on beautiful Parris Island in the summer of '89, the pendulum had swung fully the other direction. Drinking copious amounts water was not only encouraged, it was mandatory. The day we were dropped off with our actual platoons one of the fun bits of training was guzzling both canteens of water (which we always carried with us) and then holding them upside down over our heads to show they were empty. Once everyone was finished, it was off to the head to refill them. Then repeat....this went on until one or two guys started to spontaneously vomit up their full stomachs of water, which led to everyone else following suit.

We then got to experience the joy of cleaning it all up.

And that is my other mass vomit story from active duty. lol

It's not something I talk about often but I've also never made any secret of the fact that I played for Stanford at the same time as Dave Shaw & I was friends with some of the mid 90's football players & wrestlers. I know Luke well and I've met Jim several times and have know quite a bit about him through the Cardinal grapevine.

Luke Fickell is one of the better human beings you'll meet. Jim Harbaugh is not.

Nice choice. I don't have a Link but I find myself grabbing the Dividend pretty often.

Last one for me was a Kizer Begleiter. Well, two actually from a BOGO sale.

To clarify I was referring to the podcasts as time sinks. Something like Critical Role alone is hundreds of hours of content, that's a lot to keep up with.

DM long enough and you can wing most of it. lol

I got started young, at the beginning it was a mishmash of the Basic/Expert (Moldvoy edition) sets and some things from AD&D. The original monster manual was the first book I got after the basic boxed set. I still remember waiting on each new book to come out before being able to pick it up Dieties & Demigods, the Fiend Folio, Monster Manual II. The excitement upon seeing what would happen with 2nd Ed.

But it wasn't just D&D, we played a lot of Traveller (yay Hexadecimal), Gamma World, Star Frontiers, Call of Cthulhu, Runequest, Rolemaster etc.

Got back into things during the 3E/D20 days. The open source movement was amazing to see. Hated 4th edition and moved mostly into the OSR movement before life got busy again. It's nice seeing the resurgence of the hobby and spent some time following Critical Role and other podcasts before realizing it's just too much of a time sink.

I was an RPGer growing up and old enough that I remember when all the old war gamers hated us young kids for taking up their space in the stores, so I grew up on lead Ral Partha, Grenadier, Citadel etc.

I also have a family bible from the mid 19th century. It's massive, maybe 24" tall with 1/4" thick covers. If I was in a situation where I only had time to grab a couple of things to save, they'd be at the top of my list. My kids are almost of an age where I can pass them on and relieve myself of that burden. lol

You know it's weird. I absolutely considered myself a music collector at one time, but these days with everything moved away from physical media I don't really think about it.

Comment 10 Aug 2019

Not the oldest but the one most dear to me is a first edition Huckleberry Finn. It is a family heirloom that was given to me as a child and was originally owned by my great great grandmother.

I don't really consider myself a collector in the usual sense. Most of the things that compromise my 'collections' started off as users.

Comment 10 Aug 2019

Things that I could probably be called a collector of .... Flashlights, knives, swords, firearms, backpacks, books.
