The Aspect Emperor, Inrithism, Fanimry, and the Schools posted 16 March 2006 in The Thousandfold ThoughtThe Aspect Emperor, Inrithism, Fanimry, and the Schools by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

And I'm fairly certain we can expect resistance (not much, but some) from the Empire, and the imperial Saik. A few random emperor's might pop up here and there... although the real question there is... Why the hell did the Consult kill the emperor? view post


Another question about the Glossary posted 16 March 2006 in Author Q & AAnother question about the Glossary by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

Hey Scott.

I know there have been quite a few questions about about entries that should have been in there and weren't. And even you yourself have admitted that you left some out.. I may not be the first to suggest this, but why not post the entire glossary ( left-out parts included ) on here or on a website? Now that the first trilogy is finished, you won't have to worry about the spoilers from the first glossary... and it would give you the chance to post any random information that you like. There is alot of random information floating around the Q&A board that could be compiled.

And naturally, you wouldn't have to do a thing except approve which things go up and which stay in the shadows.

And if you're wondering who could head-up the whole project... I'm sure that would be a chorus of volunteers... White Lord I'm sure would probably drool at the chance.

Anyway, just a suggestion. view post


Why read fantasy? posted 17 March 2006 in Literature DiscussionWhy read fantasy? by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

I got the Lord of the Rings trilogy for my 15th birthday... and it was all downhill from there. Song of Ice and Fire was my first adult experience with this genre though. view post

"100 People who are screwing up America" - Bernard posted 27 March 2006 in Literature Discussion"100 People who are screwing up America" - Bernard by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

Anyone who is even the slightest bit political needs to read this book. Seriously. This guy is a former news anchor for CBS... and he's done his homework. Even if you don't agree with everyone on the list, you still should read it, because he makes alot of really good points about the state of the US. view post


So... Anyone know where Scott disappeared to? posted 15 May 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionSo... Anyone know where Scott disappeared to? by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

I was just curious. He hasn't answered any questions on the Q&A in quite a while. Should we be worried? view post


Websites! Show yours off! posted 01 June 2006 in Off-Topic DiscussionWebsites! Show yours off! by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

I didn't see any place here to showcase our websites, so I figured I'd start a thread for just that purpose. For those of us who have them.

Anyway, here's mine!

Seems to me, by your post count, that you're well on your way to being an ancient yourself. Watch your back my friend!

Terry Goodkind engages in rape fantasy? posted 14 June 2006 in Literature DiscussionTerry Goodkind engages in rape fantasy? by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

Bravo Aldarion! Be sure to give those of us intently following this debate a link if he decides to take up your challenge. view post

What a bafoon. I did not see a single "derisive flame" in anything Aldarion has said so far in this thread. And frankly, I think Aldarion's slight (and I repeat SLIGHT) sarcasm, is extremely justified. view post

You know, for all that Mystar keeps going on about school yard bullies and childish behavior we and other sites seem to exibit, I've yet to see him provide a single shred of evidence. Give us some links, Mystar. I will admit that in a few places on this board we've said some maligning things about Terry Goodkind, but then we say the same things about Robert Jordan. Yet the majority of the people on this website do not take part in these threads, they merely read and shake their heads. Maybe share a laugh. I see nothing childish in this at all.

Although I do find it childish that you came all the way over from your own message board to answer the school yard comments of one random guest, who isn't even a member of our board. And then you continued to stick around even after the guy stopped talking. Let it go. Seriously. All you're doing is encouraging this endless conversation about Terry Goodkind, when we'd all rather get back to discussing the author we ACTUALLY came here to talk about.

I won't say anything at all about Terry Goodkind except to say that I didn't care for the first book, and I had no desire to read any of his subsequent books. Honestly, Terry Goodkind isn't the issue here. And even if a few people on this message board have brought him up in a negetive light... Who cares? I doubt very seriously that TG cares, and neither should you Mystar. If you are so convinced of our childish behavior, then go home and leave us to it, because frankly all your high-and-mighty preaching is getting tiresome. As is the fact that you continue to ignore the well-worded and mature invitations from Aldarion. Who, regardless of what he's said in other posts on the message board, has been very open and honest and mature in this thread.

So please, Mystar, do us all a favor and let it go. We've heard your point and your opinion, and you sticking around is only going to encourage further debate until the whole thing breaks down into name calling. At which point we all might as well be back in first grade. view post

Modern Soldiers posted 21 June 2006 in Philosophy DiscussionModern Soldiers by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

So, I work at a hotel. And I just finished checking in a guy who's in the marine core. Now, we do give lower rates to active military. The rate that I quoted, however, didn't seem good enough for this gentleman. So, he gives me this line.

"Come on, I know you got a lower rate for a guy who's been to Iraq twice."

My question is...

Why should a soldier who 1) volunteered, and 2) isn't fighting a necessary war get special treatment? I respect that he's a member of the military, and I even respect that he's seen combat. I just don't feel that going to Iraq entitles him to any special treatment above and beyond what a normal military officer gets who hasn't gone to Iraq. It would be different if Iraq had attacked us, or if we were fighting for our lives, but neither of these is true. We didn't even have a good reason for going into Iraq. Even if Sadam HAD weapons of mass destruction.. so do several other countries who don't like us. The treatment of the Iraqi's isn't even a good reason when you take into account the much worse treatment of African people in the war-lord ruled countries like Somalia.

Anyway, I just wanted to get some opinions/reactions to this. view post


Modern Soldiers posted 22 June 2006 in Philosophy DiscussionModern Soldiers by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

All very good opinions. And I'm all for giving soldiers respect for being in the military, and even for seeing combat. I was just making the point that he shouldn't get special treatment for being in combat when compared to other soldiers who haven't seen combat.

And I responded (as per my employee script) by telling him that the computer wouldn't let me give him anything lower than the rate he was already getting. *Snickers.* view post


Modern Soldiers posted 22 June 2006 in Philosophy DiscussionModern Soldiers by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

Okay. Wow. Setting aside the hostility, our military discount is actually much better than AAA or AARP. (73.26 for AAA compared to 60.50 for military.) The only way he could have gotten a lower rate was if he was a commercial truck driver (we give lower rates to them because they supply 60% of our business.) And the reason I played dumb was because it was 2 in the morning and I didn't feel like getting this guy pissed off. There really was nothing I could do for him as far as the rates go. He had the lowest rate available to a non-driver.

And I wasn't saying anything negative about soldiers as a whole. As I said, I have no problem with them getting respect and a discount. view post


Modern Soldiers posted 22 June 2006 in Philosophy DiscussionModern Soldiers by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

Okay well, the comments about the war weren't actually going through my head at the time I checked the guy in. They were mostly unrelated comments based on my opinion of the war, rather than my opinion of the guy checking in. And I really would have helped him if I could. (I'm not really sure where the *snicker* came from.. but it was probably inapropriate.) But the fact remains that he was getting a pretty low rate, and I couldn't go any lower without getting in trouble.

I agree with your other points though. I think we (the hotel I work for) has a fairly good military discount, and frankly other businesses should follow the same path. It's certainly not right to make someone pay MORE for being in the military. That's just crap. view post


AMERICAN POLITICS... posted 28 July 2006 in Philosophy DiscussionAMERICAN POLITICS... by Kidruhil Lancer, Auditor

Honestly speaking, I don't vote.

*Pause to let those who want to scream do so.*

All those ad campains about "vote or die" just piss me off. Voting itself pisses me off. I live in California, which means regardless of who I vote for, the state is going to swing for whatever hippy open-minded morally bankrupt candidate the Democrats decide to regurgitate. So I figure, what's the point?

I don't consider myself to be a member of either party. I think of myself the same way Alhana does. (I even used the same term in private conversations. hah! *High five*) I think the liberals (I'm speaking of politicians here, not citizens.) are all reactionary dip sh**s, who are so obsessed with being open minded and tolerant, that they've lost all sense of perspective. While the conservatives obviously don't have enough of an open mind.

As for Bush...

Yes, the man has made stupid decisions. What pisses me off more though are the dumb asses who scream for impeachment. The man hasn't done anything illegal! A presidant can't be impeached for making foolish decisions, unless those decisions compromise the safety and integrity of the nation and the office. Which they haven't.

The whole political system is screwed up these days. Neither party can field a decent candidate because they're both so obsessed with defeating the other that they've lost site of the point of the whole process.

However I have to say that I'm more afraid of what liberals would do to this country than I am of conservatives. Standing still or moving forward slowly is better than rushing forward off a cliff face. In my honest opinion (which may very well be wrong, but I have done some reading on the subject.), liberals (Again, speaking of the parties/politicians, not citizens.) have done more to hurt this country than conservatives have. You just never hear about it because they have better PR. view post
