The small random questions thread [WAAAAAAAAAAluigi]
« on: July 19, 2012, 05:25:32 pm »

I have, quite simply, had a load of questions that I've been completely unable to find an answer to through Google, books, friends and family members that were too small to deserve their own thread.

So I have made this: the random questions thread for any questions you want answering (no matter how trivial) and you believe, yourself, don't deserve a thread.

ask whatever the hell you want, just don't:
A) Be a dick
B) Insult someone
B) b) discriminate anyone.
C) Sexual stuff is alright so long as you don't get into detail. Toady dislikes it, and the last thing we need is a locked thread.

Now, my question: where can I find an ASUS motherboard identification program or something similar? We lost the booklet for our motherboard, and I need to know what motherboard I have so I can actually get more RAM.

Don't know. Though I do have a small question of my own. In a hypothetical scenario, would it be a great idea to lance a blister brought on by a poisonous sting? Or let it persist?

Here are my small random questions: Didn't we have a thread almost exactly like this before? What happened to it?

:P

Lance = Burst with a hot needle
burst results in propelling of the fluid, if under pressure, hence why it would propel the potential poison.
I see. Now which of the four humours is causing this?

And my vote goes with "phlegmy."

I feel this thread will quickly turn into a Google-fu practice session. :P

Bah! Humours! That theory was exploded hundreds of years ago! All real doctors know that disease is either brought on by something to small to see with the naked eye or an absence of cold, hard cash.

EDIT: After further investigation, I will concede that it may be an excess of bile.

or maybe Valve goes out of business because they invested too heavily in something which then fails - like, say, human civilization.
Alternatively, initiate strife to refuse additional baked goods, and then abscond.

Because veterinarians are boring jackasses.

Because natural wheels wouldn't be able to have muscles and nerves and the other internal stuff normal extremities have.

I just googled that phrase and found nothing. Congratulations, those three words in that order have never been typed into the googleable internet before! Until now.

Kinda' a lead on, but thinking on it later...

What would an exalted Cthulhu's stats be like?

Also vaguely curious what sort of exalted he'd be, actually. Don't really know enough about the grit of the setting to be able to make a good guess at it.

my search-fu didn't find it.
Huh, I'd swear there was a "Little Questions Thread" a while ago. It's not appearing on searches, though, so I might be confused on that one.
e: I think it was this one. But it's best to just let it lie now.
