I may be addicted to E-Yahtzee.

Clarification question: To qualify as a straight (either "large" - 5 - or "small" - 4), must the die be in actual order (i.e. 2,3,4,5,6), or can they be mixed up (i.e. 2,5,3,4,6)?
IIRC, they can be mixed up as in your latter example.

Thanks.  I know that it's the rule in Poker that they can be mixed up; I just didn't know if it carried over to the dice games.

I'm looking out of my window at the trees.  Have you ever just looked at trees?  There's lots 'o life there.  Birds, squirrels, bugs, boards.  Lots of boards in trees.  But you gotta work to get 'em out.  And trees generally don't like it when we do that.

Yeah, I spent some time on a couple of separate days last week watching a squirrel eat buds off the pear tree in our back yard.

I don't know exactly who it was, but I remember hearing of how one of the USA's founding fathers (John Adams?) wrote in his journal a detailed description of the squirrel and how beautiful a creature it is.  He concluded by saying, "I bagged five, and my partner bagged six." Grin

Squirrel pot pie, anyone?

It's a true thing that Brunswick stew is a traditional dish in the SE US.  Just off of our cookbook shelf, there are recipes for it in The Joy of Cooking by Rombaur and Becker and The Heritage of Southern Cooking by Camille Glenn (page 184-185).  Both mention using both squirrel and/or rabbit but that chicken and pork/ham make a fine dish without the first two critters. 

I've never made a Brunswick stew myself, nor ever cooked a squirrel, I assure you.  I just mentioned it as a follow-on to the pot pie reference.

I apologize for making people uncomfortable.

I used to drink soy milk for a few weeks back in 2002 - didn't feel like myself.  Now I drink Kefir and fat free milk.

When I used to lift weights regularly, I drank lots of OJ, Milk and water.

Do coconuts have udders?  Yet, there is such a thing as coconut milk.

The soybean can be smashed into a milk like substance with lots of water.  Source

Quote
The old-fashioned soy milk-making process begins with a long, relaxing soak. The softened beans are then ground on a stone grinder, using massive amounts of water. The mush goes into a cloth bag, is placed under a heavy rock, and pressed and squeezed until most of the liquid runs out. The soy paste is then boiled in fresh water. Large amounts of filthy scum rise to the surface and are carefully removed.13,14

The modern method is faster, cheaper--and retains the scum. It speeds up the presoaking phase with the use of an alkaline solution, skips the squeezing and skimming steps, uses common tap water, and cooks the soy paste in a pressure cooker. The speed comes at a cost: the high pH of the soaking solution followed by pressure cooking destroys key nutrients, including vitamins and the sulfur-containing amino acids. The process also decreases the quality of the amino acid lysine and may produce a toxin, lysinoalanine.15 Although levels of lysinoalanine in soy milk are low, valid safety concerns remain.

Accelerated the drive to 3x105, and accelerated the drive toward moderator madness...

Does that mean there will be a tournament between moderators (e.g. Basketball, Yahtzee, Ping Pong, GuitarHero).

There's no reason to be mad.   Smiley

My thought for the day: Twitter is stupid.

Will you stop trying to impose your agenda on Twitter?

My agenda is all pervasive. There is nothing I say, do, or write that is not infused with my agenda. Even these three sentences are filled with my agenda.

That's truly impressive... I've tried to get my agenda in more than my usual 15% of sentences, but I haven't broken through yet.  Any tips?

What a wonderful way to relieve the purple demon madness than throwing around the dice whether real or online.

My next favorite choice is ScrabbleTM.

My first tip would be to get yourself labeled by ialmisry as someone who has a hidden agenda in every post you make. Then it immediately becomes true.

You know, I love Scrabble, but I hate always losing to my sister and her BA in English.

I think I'm getting close, in all the EP-bashing and -subverting threads...

What bugs me is when someone thinks of a 5-letter word that uses a couple of high scoring tiles, and one tile in the word lands on a triple-word-score square.  I had an opponent once score something like 48 points on that word. Tongue

Eh, with the online versions you don't need to...

Yikes.  I feel your pain (or is that just heartburn?).
