    my revolutionary idea was ignored
    -----------------

    A man builds. A parasite asks 'Where is my share?'
    A man creates. A parasite says, 'What will the neighbors think?'
    A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '

    What do you think?
    I think what would work better is to add cute pets to games. I played WoW for a few years, and what got me hooked on it was the fact that if you shelled out 2x the money you got the panda cub pet. I was also entranced by the fact that you could tame pets (hunter) or be a pet (druid) or ride a pet (warlock).

    Sparkles also help. I stayed an extra 5 months because I had this staff that GLOWED AND HAD SPARKLES and I would run around staring at my screen entranced.

    Last step, is of course, to profit.

    Dear Saturned,

    Next month is the anniversary of a certain death/birth that is meaningful to me. How do you recommend making peace with regrets involving the ones who aren't on earth anymore?

    Dear Saturned,

    Last week there was an incident where a forgotten pen in my shoulderbag accidentally went through the dryer and exploded all throughout the inside. It took me three hours to clean it, but it was taken care of. My grandma's since put a load of white sheets though and told me they came out fine. But I just took my mom's white sheets out and there appears to be a bit of black ink spotting...

    Do I clean the dryer again for good measure?
    or do I leave it and assume my mother's sheets were spotted to begin with?

    Dear @Vasilia,

    Anniversaries of when people die, or when they were born, are very important to acknowledge in a way that is comfortable for you.

    Death is so final and permanent that it is almost impossible to not have regrets when someone passes away. But I do think there can be ways to ease the pain that these regrets can bring.

    Some suggestions without knowing many details (therefore some may not apply at all to you):

    1- Write the person a letter.
    • Express what you wish you had had a chance to say and do with them.
    • Express a few memories that you hold dearest to your heart of this person.
    • Chat with them in the letter like you would if you could talk to them right now. Tell them what you have been up to. Tell them about your accomplishments. Tell them how much you wish they could have been there when you did X. Share with them your sadder moments and how you felt.
    • Express simply how sad/angry/whatever you are because they are gone. Whatever it is that you feel.


    2- Do something in their memory:
    • Was there a cause they were passionate about? Volunteer your time for that cause.
    • Send a card or letter to anyone else they were close to and talk about your loved one. Example, if this is a grandparent, perhaps you could send a card to one of their children or siblings.
    • Make their day a day of celebration and memory, even if it's a party of just you. Go somewhere that was special for them or the two of you. Example, if you regret not having a chance to go to a museum with your loved one... then treat yourself to a day there.


    I hope these ideas help! 1x for now. 20x for next month.

    Dear @Malice,

    I did some extensive research* on this topic and discovered a few ideas you can try to clean out the dryer further.

    Nail polish remover (acetone)
    Rubbing alcohol

    You may need to run a cloth with one of these soaked on it over the insides to see if there is a residue left.

    I would also check the washer to make sure there isn't ink going on there as well.

    I would do a test run with a light colored rag at the end to see if anything else needs to be cleaned!

    Good luck on ze cleaning.

    Dear Saturned,

    1) Where do angels fear to thread?

    2) What was the greatest thing before sliced bread?

    3) Is there a blessing for sewing machines?

    3) Do alpha males smell like cookies?


    *cough* *cough* Sorry, I'm a little hoarse.

    1: Many places. I would venture to say my bedroom being one of them. It was recently invaded by about 68 books (I counted) and various articles of clothing all over the place.

    2: The greatest thing... Well, it depends on how you want to quantify it. I am going to go with "gravitational pull". I would say in the immediate vicinity, the great pyramid of Giza.

    3: "Please sew true and straight oh wise and noble machine of the Light."

    4: I tend to avoid Alpha Males, so I am not sure.

    I'll just leave this here.

    “Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside
    them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe.” -Neil Gaiman
