Necro-threading! Maybe we can raise the forum from the dead by replying to all the old stuff, plus it makes us seem like wise old Ents who take a long time to form responses.  People will be eager to see what wisdom we have to impart.... then... fart jokes! they'll be hooked, genius!

Unwashed Village / Re: What would you ask your dying parent?
« on: October 12, 2020, 09:46:23 AM »
I think it would be:

Mother: As a parent myself I can't reconcile how your actions put me in harms way against your assertion that you had no idea what was happening, what the hell were you thinking?

Dad: Where were you? I can count the days I've spent with you on one hand, can you tell me why and who you were?

I grew apart from my mother when I noticed a growing disparity in how I approach being a parent and the things that happened in my childhood, she was emotionally abusive in her own right and, from the perspective of being an adult with three children, so neglectful in a very focussed way that she allowed life altering things to happen to me I'd never imagine a reasonable person would allow.  I genuinely border on thinking she had full knowledge and either allowed it to perpetuate because of the natural benefit or because she gained direct benefit from it.  She tried to stick herself too far in to the running of my own family so I've not spoken to her for nearly 10 years apart from when she called to tell me of a death in the family and tried to use that as a means to get back in to our live.

My father is Mr radio silence, I remember a handful of days with him when I was younger, he split from my mother before I was born, made an effort to see me born then had a very arms length relationship with me, found me moderately interesting when I got old enough to drink, made an appearance at my wedding then soon after had a tantrum when he couldn't come on a particular Sunday, that was soon after the wedding and I've been married 11 years and I have occasionally tried to reach out to him but... nothing.

I'm occasionally struck with sorrow for myself and that fact that my children don't have grandparents but I genuinely think they're better out of our lives but I'd still wish them well and hope that they find peace from whatever made them deeply flawed individuals.

I’m clinging on to the last few months of being 40, my children are 11,9 and 7.  I realised yesterday that my mother was a grandparent by this age through both of my older brothers.  A good few of my classmates have children planning their own weddings some have grandchildren.  This all seems barely credible and I often make a silent humble request of the world to just stop for a bit, give us sunshine and a month of Sunday’s so we can just breath but life seems to move fastest when you’re standing still.

Did you bring it back? We've had nothing to tie the horses to, they just drag the tangerines around when we hitch them to those.

The situation is horrible for so many and we have been touched by it on my wife's side but I'm mostly living the dream just now, I don't need to travel further the living room to get to work, I live in one of the best paces for fresh food in Scotland and people are happy to deliver anything from Buffalo to Fruit and veg then to Lobster.  This situation is actually looking to be where my job is heading, Marie wants to go back to Uni to take a midwifery course but schools are likely to go back two days a week with three days of home schooling so this working pattern would be perfect for us. 

FO79 being playable might help sate some of the very slight social yearnings I have, my generation and the ones that came after are probably the best suited for this isolated life, I think I could still sink a few days in to CivII.

Just thought I'd get in and say it sometime before April, glad I beat the rush. 

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and new year!

Unwashed Village / Drunk post
« on: December 01, 2018, 01:08:46 AM »
Don’t you hate it when you’re a bottle deep in to a Southern comfort binge and all you can think to say is “I love you guys?”

Clearly the subtext here is that i’m Undoubtedly drunk but my perspective has matured, right?

Comparative investenent strategies anyone? Willing to fight you!

Unwashed Village / Re: Vault Tec experiment ideas
« on: November 14, 2017, 10:14:40 AM »
A vault with novelty board games that look really interesting but really really aren't and millions of mislabelled VHS tapes, all mislabelled and mostly early 80's Russian cooking shows. The interesting ones all lose sound and or tracking at vital plot points.  There's a Betamax labeled "GECK location and instructions" but no Betamax player, so starts a quest for a video repair shop.

Unwashed Village / Re: Best Premade Character for Fallout?
« on: November 03, 2017, 01:29:52 PM »
Not to be overly picky but Narg was a Fallout 2 character.

I tend to go with creating my own character.

I've tried to play the evil character but I just end up being wracked with guilt.

There have been many but the real life altering, defining moments of my life have been when I've became a father, you realise from that point on life is about being equal to the amazing privilege and responsibility in your life, falling short of that can be soul crushing.

If we had a leader we'd have forgotten who it was already, well within five minutes of deciding  who said leader was.

Family, work and life generally tends to make the bungee cord excessively slack but it does still exert a bit of a pull; we get a good number of old members popping in every so often but there isn't really enough activity to keep people here. The UV is on my list of sites I check every few days but I can go weeks.

We have plans to saw ourselves away then fill the hole with oil so we can have a proper frying pit. We're going to need a tonnes of flour and millions of eggs for the batter.
