Correct. We aren't on topic anymore. So let's get back to that.

But do report posts of the manner that were mentioned.

and traveling---yes, I spent many hours in japan wandering aimlessly getting lost in back alleys et.al....found some of the best restaurants that way (with the exception of south osaka--not recommended to get too lost there).

As a person who did that recently... yea I can agree with that.

Also south Hiroshima.

Izzy did balancing for GW1 until 2009. Conga lines during tournaments and ridiculously overpowered skills were already a thing before he stepped down.

The conga line incident was an abuse of the draw rules in the tournament and had nothing to do with a skill balance protest. It also happened in 2009. I remember that quite distinctly as I had just gotten back into GvG at the time. This was the first time that there was match fixing in the game and they changed the rules in tournaments because of it.

Izzy's balancing strategies were infamous as far back as I can remember. Wasn't it smiter's boon that he nerfed so hard it was effectively removed from the game forever and the spell's name became synonymous with nerf? Anet's balance strategy was akin to whack-a-mole.

But, this has strayed into a realm that is brushing with off topic and likely to result in off topic discussion. Let's reel it in.

Feathermoore, don't you live in the north? The only valid excuse for not having beans in your chili is "there's too much meat in this chili for us to fit in any beans".

:huh: If the Carolinas/Georgia are considered the north I think I may need to move. Heck, the city Cary next to Raleigh is called the "Containment Area for Relocated Yankees."

I would probably do chili if there was no beans. Beans are no bueno.

Beef, tomatoes, onions, vegetable oil, beef stock, chiles, garlic, cumin, black pepper, salt, flour, brown sugar, vinegar, sour cream. End of recipe. Oh, and if it isn't cooking for at least 6 hours you are doing it wrong.
