Of Peanut Butter and Popcorn Stands...

  1. Hetemti The Wide-Awake Nightmare

    Dual Poll:
    1) I can get a box of 36 boosters for $70 or 12 Tournament Starters for $75. Is it worth the $5 for the extra new Invasion lands lands and dozen deck boxes, or is it wiser to just get boosters? (Aside: Do Tourney Packs have foils?)

    2) It was cute at first, but now it's annoying. I'm speaking of the ASCII art in people's signatures. Especially since some are poorly done (no offence intended), I vote that they be removed, least for cosmetic reasons. Agree or disagre? (Aside: Do people who hate white border cards equally hate unecessary ASCII pix in footnotes?)

    3) Should the rich eat the poor? (Optional)
    "ASCII pics are kewl. They make you different just like everyone else with a ASCII pic in their signature."
  2. Cateran Emperor Passed On

    1. Yes, Tourney packs can have foils in them. Which you get is up to you ultimately.

    2. Um, No. I'm not getting rid of my little evisceratin' guy. In fact, kudos to Griffith for creating the idea for these, I like these. (BTW I don't hate white bordered, but I do prefer black just for the sense of flow it gives the deck (that came out wrong :D ))

    3. Sure, why not :D But seriously, care to clarify that a bit?

    now for my own Q:

    Something tells me Mr. Hetemi is feeling very cynical right now. Your signature even professes your hatred of our little ASCII guys. What is the reason he so dislikes them (Aside: Would he not mind if he had his own personal one?)
  3. Hetemti The Wide-Awake Nightmare

    1) I'm allways cynical.
    2) Due to the nature of the meaning of "Hetemti," it can not be preceded by niether "Mr." nor any other title.
    3) I, personally, like your "little evisceratin' guy," but the recent influx of poorly made icons is becoming rather ostentatious. Perhaps it has something to having not slept in 40 hours, but the chances are slim.
    4) How can that be more clear? "Should the rich eat the poor?"
    "Absolutly! The poor have had it too easy for too long. They are a drain on society and a good source of dietary protien..."
    "...I most certainly disagree! The poor are hardly a good source of protien. The meat is stringy, full of disease, and it's nearly impossible to find the right wine!"
    (See. Totally incomprehensible.)

    they are kind of annoying..

    i think a sig should not be mor then 4 lines long unless it's really funny or something. mine is a perfect example of a good signature lengthwise. there may be some people in mongolia who are addicted to pants who think my sig is offensive so its not totally perfect.
  5. Cateran Emperor Passed On

    1) hard concept for me to grasp, I'm rarely cynical :D
    2) [Does not know the meaning of "Hetemi"]
    3) Any particular ones you don't like and think should be changed (btw, glad to know you like lil' evisceratin' guy :D)
    4) Is this some kind of political/economical question, or are you meaning this as a pun type o' thing? If the former, I'd guess you're probably a Democrat or at least lean to the left if you're independent, but then that's just a guess. And I'd say you're being a bit overblown on that one. The rich don't eat the poor, they merely employ them. All's fair in economics, but not all is the honorable thing to do. If it's the latter, then yes, with some peanut butter and jelly too :D
    5) I'm tired too, I'm going to sleep now. G'night all :cool:
  6. Namielus Phrexian Plaguelord

    With tournement packs you lose 1 common in every pack to get 1 extra uncommon in them, also the chance to get foil land is much higher in tournement packs, you will still get foils in tournement packs.

    Eating the poor? well I don't think that would serve its purpose as well as you think, most really really poor people sleep in places you wouldn't piss on, also they would in general be pretty lankey so I say nope, the rich shouldn't eat the poor (unless I don't like those rich people.)
  7. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    1: dunno, Never been to a tourney
    2: well, I dunno. Could be worse, could be a picture of me. Taking THAT down for cosmetic reasons, now that makes sense...
    3: What's the point? Leave'em alone long enough, the poor will eat themselves, why should we do that for them?
  8. Cerberus New Member

    1. I would buy boosters if there is a 5 dollar differince if it was less like 1 or 2 dollars I would go with starters because I like to have the nem land

    2.I don't realy like the ASCII art in the signatures but I don't think that my opintion should be used to remove all the art if they want to have let them have it!!
    (I also hate white bordered cards)

    smal ascii art sigs.. like duel's.. thats perfect

    but nameilus your is too big and stuff
  10. Apollo Bird Boy

    Should I kill my ASCII thing? I'll put it on here so people can see it, though I normally wouldn't with such a short post.
  11. Cateran Emperor Passed On

    I like yours Apollo, it's the fiery chicken! I still don't think we need to get rid of any of them, how about just putting a limit of maybe 6 lines on the character itself? I still don't like that, but since most of them are no bigger than that it won't do much.

    Duel, tournament packs don't come from tournaments ;) They're 75 card things with lands and the like in them, which sell for about the price of 3 boosters, so they're a betterdeal initially if you want the new lands and their artwork. After that, boosters are probably a better bet since I don't think tourney packs can have a foil rare (maybe they can, I'm not sure as maybe I just didn't pull one from one yet)
  12. Sleepy Narcoleptic CPA Member

    lemme know. on your other questions, I always buy starters cause I need the lands,and the rich should eat whatever they want, as long as they can pay for it
  13. Chaos Turtle Demiurgic CPA Member, Admin Assistant

    1) Depends on if you think 1.4 cents per land is a good deal, and you want about 72 of each basic land. I'm not sure how the foils work out. If I like the lands, I may get the starters (though I usually don't buy boxes anymore, as I get lots of cards from drafting).

    2) I don't think we should eliminate the ascii's, but I'm in favor of them being well-made (thanks again, Griffith se!) and not too gaudy. I also don't use my sig for every post, which cuts down on the space it takes up... a practice I strongly recommend.

    3)If they think they can, sure; but I personally favor eating the rich.
  14. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    1. Have no idea.

    2. I like the sigs and don't think ANY are really poorly made. I think Griffith_se did a fantastic job coming up with them.

    Instead of getting rid of the sigs, how about getting rid of dumb, stupid, pointless battles in the Battle Forum that are pretty much used to up one's posting numbers (as I see it)? :rolleyes:

    3. Beats the heck out of me :)
  15. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    [me] beats the heck out of Spidey[/me]
    What?!? Spidey told me to!
  16. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I didn't really mean YOU, Duel... you're legit... stop hitting me! ;)
  17. NeuroDeus Doctor Wundindlinyg

    You are making this campaign against sig. because mine is a bit crap...yea....thanks...
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Can't really see the black though. Maybe you can change colors...
  19. Duel Has Less Posts Than Spiderman

    Like I said, the page of quotes and the Giant Invasion Dragon were really the only ones I disliked. I don't mind nameilius'. It's upper limit, but okay.

    and Riva's has got to go...
