This is where the limitations of the medium (screencaps) fail me a wee bit. If I want to do more complex things with this comic, I'd probably need help from an actual vector artist.

A good Story Time for this weekend might involve mysteries (of varying degrees of Scooby-Doo-ness). Just sayin'.

What's this? A new podcast episode on time?! Say it ain't so!

In the vein of mysteries, I would like to pose a real life mystery to you. How bad would you expect it be to be stabbed with a tire and have a piece broken off in you?

Sorry, I just gotta milk the comedic value of this one.

EDIT: This is the answer. You know you wanna see.


Okay, for realsies. Paladin, fighter, barb, and a cleric, alone in a haunted mansion for the night. The DM actually expected to have a scooby mystery. Didn't work out that way. The cleric cast speak with undead, the paladin used smite evil, and the barbarian started just smashing anything that animated.

The whole thing was solved in a couple hours, when it was meant to last a few sessions. D&D is not the game for that, it seems.

Getting it removed today, but I couldn't pass this up. Seriously, stabbed with a tire. Damn right that's a story I'll be telling for a while.

EDIT: It got delayed. Will post pics when it gets removed.

EDIT2: Wire does not want to come out. Will have to try again.

I am having a very difficult time trying to visualize this. You were stabbed with a round, primarily rubber, (and as far as I know) non-pointy object and ended up with that sliver...

Did you get shanked by Pinkie?

Have you ever seen a tire worn down way past the recommended wear level?

inside the rubbery, non-point outer layer(s?), there is usually metal wires.

Thin, long wire = pointy/stabby

ouch :(

But yes, stabbed by a tyre is a good story :)

I hope Raxon will be better at bringing it up in conversation than I am with my "root canal work *without* any anaesthetic" story^.

If you think getting the outside of a tooth scraped by a dentist is an unusual feeling, try getting the *inside* of your tooth scraped. It is very, very weird.

I can never seem to get that into a conversation :( [except on very rare occasions]

^ I should explain that a bit. Don't worry, there was no pain during the root canal. The nerve in that tooth had died = no need for anaesthetic.

Now, the two months^^ or so of severe toothache and extreme hot/cold sensitivity *while* the nerve was dying ..... that was no fun :(

^^ stupid me, I put up with the pain for about a month before I made an appointment to see the dentist :p

I get your pain. I have had five of them myself. I think both my teeth and my kidneys hate me. I have also had kidney stones. I am only 22. I am too young for this crap!!!
