I'm imagining an extremely campy Dwarven Disco.
I can only imagine dwarven disco would have absolutely incredible percussion. Burning Heart of the Mountain on the Dance Floor, hit mix of the Underkingdom? This is disco that collapses entire nations into the under layers.

E: And now I'm wondering if one of those buggerhuge drums have ever been used as part of a disco tune...

Firefox is considering Google to be an untrusted connection and warns me against accessing it. Da faq. That's never happened before. Google Chrome is having similar issues.

Could be a problem with DNS where someone else is claiming to be Google? I'd run some virus scans were I you.

Whatever the issue was is gone now. I had some computer issues earlier due to me dropping the desktop on its side like an idiot (long story) which wound up disrupting the RAM or something and caused the computer to not boot up. Repair dude just reseeded the RAM (or something along those lines) and it's back to working.

Had to reset the clock though. Before I noticed this both browsers had issues with Google. After resetting the clock they connect fine. Could be something to do with Google's html code that uses the system's time for features such as Doodle4Google that was malfunctioning due to the time difference and set off the "untrusted connection" response. Or maybe it's magic.

Whatever the issue was is gone now, and I don't have any horrible killer klown porn viruses or anything noticeable. Will run a scan anyway, don't think it's anything to worry about though.

Ah. Certificates for https have a validity-period (from x till x), usually a year. If your current time is not within that period, it must be a fake or wrong certificate, or so your computer thinks.

I just realized today that the thing I think about most when I'm in the shower is writing suicide notes.  O_o

Sorry I have to ask this:

Why is going out to a restaurant by yourself considered weird and/or lonely?

I keep trying to go to a restaurant (things happen, and I have to postpone) and everytime I mention it people keep telling me to invite someone else (there is no one else) and constantly tell me about how I shouldn't go to a restaurant by myself.

It's... not? S'plenty of folks that stop by a restaurant alone, from what I've seen. Sometimes you just want something different and there's nobody to go with, so...

Huh? It is? That's new for me.

Hard to tell what constitutes a work/school restaurant. You mean like a cafeteria? Either way, I go to restaurants 'proper' alone all the time and I never even heard anyone have any issues about that, ever.

Work/school restaurant I constitute as those restaurants that are put close to or inside of schools or work areas with the intent that people eat there during their lunch breaks.

We have several restaurants in my university (though only two are sit down... and one is basically a sports bar)

Ah, I see. But yeah, that question was kinda pointless, since I have an actual restaurant I go to every now and then when I feel like paying twice the usual for a serving half as big as either of my favorite spots.

There's this place near where I live that manages to combine all the swankiness of a fancy Italian restaurant with the all-you-can-eatiness of a buffet. The food is good, too. It's the only fancy restaurant in the area (besides the steakhouses for which Kansas City is famed) where you get your money's worth in food.

All-you-can-eat Italian food is a great scheme. There's no way you're gonna eat more than the entrance fee in noodles and sauce.
