Tabletop Roleplaying:

What Non-Gamers Think I Do: Act out everything in-character a la LARPing.

What I Think I Do: Create a well-rounded character and use it to vicariously live out a fantastic journey.

What I Actually Do: Fast-talk the DM into giving me what I want.

So true a statement spud. :D

Especially true in my group where players try to find ways around the rules for an advantage. I wear down a lot of rolled up newspapers from DMing.

"Man, that rolled up newspaper comes outta *nowhere*."
"I had a holster made."

And now I understand why so many people like to play without a system. If fast-talking DM is the main feature of the game, why bother to roll dice?

Because dice keep your DM's hands too busy to seek out something heavy with which to bludgeon you.

...Not that any respectable DM would condone such a course of action, of course. <cough>

Anyone else find it hilarious this is right below Digo talking about beating his players with rolled up newspapers?

*Raises his newspaper-filled hand* :D

Light bludgeons, such as rolled up newspaper, are acceptable, and you may wield one and a die of your choice simultaneously.

Heavy bludgeons, such as a frying pan or the player to your left, have been prescribed at the table by the Mohan-Moore Conventions, ratified in 1985, and the Brom-Daxa Treaties of 1989 and 1991. In countries that have not signed the latter treaties, and the state of Idaho, the heavy bludgeon may be used only after the following criteria have been fulfilled:

a) the game has run more than 4 hours,
b) the hour is sometime between 3 and 7 in the morning, and
c) the players have failed to maintain a reliable source of caffeine for the DM or, if such a source is available, have attempted to withhold it for coercive purposes.

I, as DM, prefer to roll my dice in a sheer stocking. Then they serve a dual purpose.
