Stupid February

Stupid, stupid February.

Apparently, and you may not have heard this, February is only 28 days long.

I know. What the hell?

This is sort of a big deal because I failed to realize it's been more than four weeks between fan packs.

See, I was just having too much fun playing WoW.

...

Not buying that?

I didn't think so.

Anyway, one week from today, I will be sending out a new fan pack. It will be jam packed with all sorts of goodies.

As usual, I will include a number of exclusive stories from yours truly, along with some articles by Susan and GoblinSmithy. I will try and include some nice pictures or fan art, but I did get a restraining order from Photoshop, so...

For those of you who enjoyed the WoW week, I have been saving my final judgments for the fan pack. I'm going to do a series about the game including a full review from a new player's perspective.

Totally unbiased.

So, anyone who donates $5 or more will become a member of the official [GM]Dave fan club and get the fan pack sent to them.

Other fan club membership benefits include:

- my "eternal" gratitude
- a reason to wake up that day
- preferable treatment when my plans for global domination come to fruition

And, as usual, the reader who donates the highest amount will be given the opportunity to take part in the blog in a way of their choosing. You can suggest story ideas, write your own story, have someone killed... Whatever you want.

You can even choose your very own theme for me to write about.

Have you always wanted a week of posts about classic literature?

No?

Really?

Then come up with your own idea. The sky's the limit.

No furry porn.

EVER.

I mean, last month I played WoW for a week.

An ENTIRE week.

If that doesn't prove my dedication, I don't know what will.

I'm actually a little scared about what the next person is going to pick.

Then again, how bad could it be?

...

I'm going to regret saying that.

I've never donated before but your stupid WoW post makes me want to. And now I have. I hate you, GM Dave, but yet I love you.

Enjoy the sandwich you buy with my money or whatever. D:

Someone should make Dave play nothing but a copy of the Atari ET Game for a week.


Yeah, I'm cruel like that.

How much to get you to play WoW long enough to level a hunter to 80 and actually enjoy the game?

LOL. I was hoping someone would suggest he actually buy a real copy of WoW + expansions, and level at least one char to 80.

He will probably refuse the donation if someone were to do that then play WoW for another week. :p

I never did understand why February actually only had 28 days. Why couldn't they have just taken a couple of the days off of the months with 31? Would be more months with exactly 30 days.

I also don't understand why our time is in 24 hours. Especially since it forces us to have a leap year every 4 years. Just change it so it's 20 hours or something, and fix the length of minutes so we don't have to put up with leap years... or daylight saving time.

It takes 24 hours for the earth to rotate once around it's vertical axis, which is why we have 24 hour days. DST (Daylight Savings Time) was started so that the work day would encompass as much sunlight as possible, this was mostly back when outside physical labor was the norm. There are several places in the US that don't practice DST, Indiana comes to mind.

Also, if you wanted to adjust the number of hours in the day so as to remove leap years, you would technically have to lengthen each day, not shorten it. Also leap years have nothing to do with the number of hours in the day, really, it has more to do with the Earth's rotation around the Sun.

Salt,or he could just lie he did it..

There's only 28 days in feb coz Julius and Augustus both wanted to have a month of their own (July and August). Both of them being kings,they wanted their month to have the most days (thus 31 days in july and august). as the first guy took a day from feb, the 2nd guy took another day from feb too. Originally there's only 10months and not twelve. (notice how September means seven, October like octopus means eight?) nothing much to do with axis or whatever...

@Eric

I actually loathe WoW, which is why I'm donating, because I find it so ridiculously funny. :D

That, and I'm trying to make him feel better in having to play that pitiful and poor excuse for a game.

Seriously - I was hoping for more imaginative cruelty for Dave - a week of playing Hello Kitty Online.....now that would be evil

I almost worry about this comment.... But a week of furry bashing comes to mind... either that or hentai bashing... I just think it could work with GM Dave.


Yeah I dont think he would do it either...


For the record mithra dont count as furr... If they do then I count as a furry cause I love those little beasties...

But not porn of them. that takes things to far.

Leap years are because our planet rotates about 365.24 times for every revolution about the sun. Redefining hours and minutes would not alter the rotation of the Earth, so it wouldn't avoid the requirement for leap years.

Personally, I'd love to see a week of EVE Online (I think Dave might really like it, given how lax the rules are. Player: "I got scammed!" GMs: "Sorry, we do not interfere with scams unless bugs are being exploited. Pay more attention next time.")
