      Unless you live in Australia.... Or Brazil... But then does winter ever really come?

      ...

      Blast these cooler overcast days, I may need a cardigan... (Nice chap in Brazil... Probably)

      We just had -8ºC in some cities in the south so I would say winter does come our way as well :)

      HA! You call that winter?! Let me know when you get -23ºC AND discover the meaning of "wind chill".
    • mlnevese

      Well. When you have a summer with 45+ºC we can discuss summer :)

      Well... In Britain... Water can fall out of the sky for 3 to 4 months non-stop... And not that fine rain you get in other places... That drizzle... The kind of rain that really gets you wet...

      ...

      I don't understand it either... You just got to experience the really wet rain you get here...
    • Anduin
      Anduin
      Oh... We, along with Ireland, are the only country with a wet season that is all year round...
    • Anduin

      I decided to fact check my own statement and found this little gem on the British summer within its pages...

      "In theory summer in the UK should be hot and dry. In practice it is only hot in spells and it still rains quite a bit most summers. It is best to think of it as a way of making the hot days feel more special."

      @mlnevese maybe, maybe not. It may not get quite as hot as Amazonia up here, but you may be surprised by how close it can come. 38-40ºC is somewhat uncommon but it is certainly not unheard of in my area. It can also get quite humid up here too. Today was typical for one of our hotter summer days with a high of about 35ºC and a humidity of almost 100%. Perhaps not quite what you tend to get where you live, but still pretty hot, and with such a high humidity it is still quite uncomfortable.

      My area is one of those places where there are both cold winters and hot summers.

      No one is impressed by my countries constant water from the sky uniqueness... It should surely be a tourist attraction?

      ...

      It is nice to here about the weather in other places.

      @Anduin We get a lot of water from the sky around here as well... but as our weather is lazier we just get an entire year worth of it in one or two days :)

      You know what's great? High temperatures and high humidity! Why who needs to visit a sauna when the outdoors gets you soaked within seconds of stepping outside? Thanks American midwest!
  • Shandyr
    No... why... why would you want to exclude me from your forumite clique? That's so mean. Please, I want to be in that clique, I NEED TO be in that clique. I would do everything to be in that clique. Please reconsider. Please.

      Maybe if you brought him the real Onduin... he would be so happy that you'd be included in the clique for sure!
    • Anduin
      Anduin
      I need to exclude some one. Besides if you became part of the clique, everyone would want to join in on the vegetable war... This could destroy the world as we know it. As I am the good looking one with excellent bone structure, I am going to form a clique with @Aedan ...
    • Shandyr
      Shandyr
      The real Onduin hasn't been seen or heard of since millennia ago when he fought one of ancestors, a very handsome fellow named Shandar. Onduin's younger brother Anduin has never truly come to terms with the loss of his brother and swore to exact vengeance on any descendant of Shandar's. Or so says the legend...

      It's very unlikely to ever find out what happened to Onduin so I think there are easier ways to infiltrate Anduin's clique...

      *hires a doppelganger agent*
      *doppelganger assumes Aedan's form*
      *doppelganger Aedan goes to Anduin*

      "Sssss. Heya, it's me Aedan. Ssssss."

      Brother? Is that you?!? What happened to your hair?
    • Shandyr
      Shandyr
      That's right! It's your long lost twin brother Onduin! And I shaved off his hair to show you what cruel things I can do to him if you don't comply. Yes, I'm holding him for ransom!

      So, Anduin, if you don't want to be the undoing of Onduin you better do exactly what I say!
    • Anduin
      Anduin
      HOW COULD YOU!

      Hang on in there Onduin!

      Grrr... What would you have of me...
    • Shandyr
      Shandyr
      I want you to show me a Wendersnaven. No tricks! For years I've been trying to find them. I have asked countless of gnomes and of course they would be so helpful and show me BUT I couldn't see them.

      I finally want to see a Wendersnaven. Show one to me. Not an invisible one! A REAL ONE THAT I CAN SEE.

      And then I shall release your brother.
    • Anduin
      Anduin
      But they are...

      *Sigh*

      Invisible...

      Wait! You need to have line of sight to cast that spell!

      You have seen them! One any way...

      Release Onduin!
    • Shandyr
      Shandyr
      You think you outsmarted me, don't you, but I shall be the one who laughs last. Because here comes the twist: ONDUIN is not real! At least that skull in the video isn't. *gasp* I know, it looks very realistic, but it's really just an artificial skull with LED eyes. It's not Onduin.

      I never held your brother captive. I don't know where he is. And so Onduin remains lost.

      Dear Assasins4u,

      Please can I congratulate you on gaining the employment of the most wonderful and charismatic Mr. Gooba. He carried out my hit with speed and commendable efficiency. My target was reduced to unrecognisable goo (this is much better than many other assassins who can only manage globs). I was very pleased with the method used, crushing. Although not as popular as cutting and thrusting, crushing gives a more matte effect. I'm not very fond of the blood 'n' gloss finish that you can find elsewhere on the market. Thank you again Mr. Gooba! I will be passing you details to my nearest and dearest. Will definitely use again.

      Yes, you are indeed correct. I should pay. Here is 25gp. I expect to get my money's worth Mr. Gooba. You go kill Shandyr quickly and I will put in a good review on Assassins4u.

      You have been neglecting me *sob* Without my fremesis I feel so lonely and miserable. How can you make me feel that way? Wait... That was your intention all along, right? To make me feel miserable because you value me so much as fremesis. Awww, come here, let me pretend to hug you *pretends to hug*

      Well actually that's a privilege of mine because I'm his fremesis. It's like a special ability that only I can use. I mean where would we end up if anyone could just blame anyone for anything?

      Wait... Wait... I have the solution. If you take my mummie wrappings and put them on Aedan he should be able to trick the forcefield into thinking it is me...

      So Aedan will be able to penetrate your forcefield, but only if he wraps up...
    • Shandyr

      Anduin... you... ... ARE A GENIUS! What a brilliant idea! I could kiss you! Of course I would never do that because people might think I might like you. God forbid!
