Whos[e] great idea was it to divide everything by 12?! That doesn't divide out cleanly!

Actually, it divides cleaner than the metric system.  For example, a third of a foot is a clean four inches, a fourth of a foot is a clean three inches, etc.

Of course 60 is a better number than 12 for a measuring system.  That's why the Sumerians based their measuring system on the number 60, and why an hour still has 60 minutes.

Wow...I've never used "shorts" to refer to boxers/underwear. For me, "shorts" are the short pants for summer clothing.

D&D questions should be directed to my friends. They created a whole club at our High School for it. I never got into it (Translation: I've never played it...)
DD's never played D&D XD

I ended up changing my signature to 'Forgive me- I'm not American' so people remembered that I say things that don't always mean what they think it means.
For a lot of people it would be more like "I forgive you for being American." ;D

As I've said in another thread- I don't have an ego, and I'm not good with sarcasm. I'm not the type of person to write that cause to me, that's dissing most of the forum (most of the forum was American), even if they all know it's just a joke, I don't want to upset anyone. I'd rather let it be known that I'm from another country than to put down theirs.

I know you wouldn't. :) It's just that some Americans think the whole world revolves around them, so it's no wonder people in other countries can get a low opinion of Americans. :-\

Wait...you mean it doesn't? :o
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

My thoughts exactly XD

DD's never played D&D XD

Now I'm spotting some irony there XD Perhaps DD shouldn't have become such a popular nickname for me...
