    So obviously, I'm playing Arcanum. In fact, I'm nearly finished, for the first time (I got it years ago, when I was too young to care about a game so in-depth!). I've been playing it on my mom's super crappy laptop, which has gone and DIED.

    At least the battery's died, and the cord that charges it refuses to connect to the laptop. I kept trying when it had some power left in it, but nothing happened when I plugged it in. So now the laptop is dead, I have no idea how to fix this, and I am Arcanum-less. I literally just went to the Void; I don't want to install it on my even-crappier desktop. Can someone please point out the fairness of this? :/

    What am I supposed to do all night now? SLEEP?!

    If the charger doesn't fit the laptop you've got the wrong charger...

    It's not the image I can't handle. It's that blasted song!

    1. Try a different charger.
    2. Try a different battery, if they're even made anymore.
    3. Get an adapter and put the laptops hard drive into a desktop.

    I'm laughing so hard while watching this. XD Question, why is he bothering to wear a condom while anally penetrating a tranny?

    That's an easy one. Farts sound funnier when they slap against latex.

    WHEN WILL I LEARN TO NOT CLICK UNIDENTIFIED LINKS?!!

    As for the laptop, the charger fits, I've used it many times before. It's just decided to stop connecting. I'm not sure how to explain it, I've had the same problem with my iPod, which I connected to a set of old computer speakers -- worked perfectly for awhile, but now I have to twist and turn the cord in order to hear the music properly.

    Just like the laptop -- worked perfectly, then I had to fiddle with it for a bit to make it work, now it just ... doesn't work at all. I guess I can try buying another charger. :/

    Poor ghosts. I will share with you the mantra that kept me sane till I got used to this place.

    "I will not click the links. I will not click the links." Trust me, it helps.

    True. This song is definitely easier on the ears.

    Saving that link for the next time I start a game of Sex Drive Murder on a forum that isn't quite as jaded and worldly as this one.

    Second that.

    Even Santa Clause gave me a nasty link over these parts of the Interwebs.

    On the upside, being on a place like this for any long period of time gives your internet constitution a +2 bonus.

    I've been here long enough that it's something like a +8 bonus now.
