Unholy Death Knight Tanking: FTL (for the lose)!

Bah. Just tried to heal this ‘tank‘ through the Nexus. Nothing personal, the guy was nice, but it really sucks when I have to spam Lesser Healing Wave and Riptide just to keep a level 71 human Death Knight healed. (I didn’t have time to cast Healing Wave itself with healing the rest of the party too.)

Check out his stats.. btw, he was unholy for this dungeon. 351 defense. 8,851 hp. 6587 armor.
WTF, I’m a shaman and I have 362 defense with 9937 hp and 4735 armor !!

Laying Down Lieing Politicians

A bus full of politicians was driving down a country road, when the bus ran off the road and crashed into a tree in an farmer’s field.

The old farmer, after seeing what happened, went over to investigate.

A few days later, the sheriff came out looking for the missing politicians; saw the crashed bus.
He asked the farmer where all the politicians had gone.

The farmer said, “I buried ’em all out back.”

The sheriff then asked, “Were they ALL dead?”

The old farmer replied, “Well, some of them said they weren’t, but you know how them politicians lie.”

A Paladin Joke.

One night, a twin-engine airplane was flying somewhere above New Jersey. There were five people on board: the pilot, Michael Jordan, a Paladin, the Dali Lama, and a hippie.

Suddenly, an illegal generator exploded loudly in the luggage compartment, and the passenger cabin began to fill with smoke.

The cockpit door opened, and the pilot burst into the compartment. “Gentlemen,” he began, “I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that we’re about to crash in New Jersey. The good news is that there are four parachutes, and I have one of them!”

With that, the pilot threw open the door and jumped from the plane.

Michael Jordan was on his feet in a flash. “Gentlemen,” he said, “I am the world’s greatest athlete. The world needs great athletes. I think the world’s greatest athlete should have a parachute!” With these words, he grabbed one of the remaining parachutes, and hurtled through the door and into the night.

The Paladin rose and said, “Gentlemen, I am a Paladin. The world needs Paladins. I think I should have a parachute, too.” He grabbed one, and out he jumped.

The Dali Lama and the hippie looked at one another. Finally, the Dali Lama spoke. “My son,” he said, “I have lived a satisfying life and have known the bliss of True Enlightenment. You have your life ahead of you. You take a parachute, and I will go down with the plane.”

The hippie smiled slowly and said, “Hey, don’t worry, dude. The Paladin just jumped out wearing my backpack.”

Secrecy and freedom can not co-exist. We have a right to know what is being done in our names, with our money, and with the blood and sanity of our sons and daughters. As a veteran people like to thank me for my service. I came home to find out that I never did anything in service of the people of my county. My labor was used to serve and protect the profits of a few. Bradley Manning served his country. He told everyone the truth.

Swine Flu

We will refer to the 2009 H1N1 Flu as the ‘Swine Flu’ as it is commonly called.

Incubation Period: In general, the incubation period for the swine flu virus seems to range from 2 to 7 days. Meaning you could get someone sick before you know you are infected!

Swine Flu Symptoms: body aches, chills, cough, fatigue, fever, headache, runny nose, sore throat, and stuffy nose. Basically just like your everyday flu. 🙂

Contrary to science fiction shows (with bad or NO science), viruses with long incubation periods and non-lethal attacks tend to be the more successful ones (as in they spread wider to more hosts).

My advice is this: stop coughing in public places and always wash your hands.
Please stop spreading these damn diseases around !

Avoidance Pawn Scale for Level 46 Warrior

Here is my Pawn Scale for my Level 46 Warrior geared towards Avoidance (avoid being hit). I chose the def=32 as the sum of the values (from what I read) that it affects, Block+Dodge+Parry.

( Pawn: v1: "Avoidance": BlockRating=10, Strength=1, ParryRating=10, Armor=0.009, Agility=2, DodgeRating=10, DefenseRating=32, BlockValue=1 )

It is similar to my previous post, but the +attack values have been stripped out.
