All I Needed to Know About Life, I Learned from Playing D&D « Humor »

In light of the popular response of the previous post, I think a review of lessons learned from playing D&D is in order:

1) If something attacks you, negotiation is useless. Some things you just have to kill.

2) Many treasure chests are trapped. Many don't even have any treasure. And some treasure chests are actually sneaky creatures evolved to look like treasure chests that will eat the unwary adventurer.

3) There is no reason to assume 9 successive fighter characters with at least 18/91 strength is a statistical impossibility.

4) Wandering monsters are a fact of life. Thus, there is no reason to be surprised when a 9-year-old is grabbed by a cougar in the Denver suburbs, or Fifi is consumed by a large, scaly amphibian that crawled out of the water trap on the 7th hole.

5) Gold is good. Platinum is even better. But the best are weapons upgrades.

6) Min-maxing is for losers. Unless you are talking about your favorite character.

...all of which seems to indicate, playing D&D teaches one to be a conservative, eh?

Anyone else got a few suggestions?

You'll find two schools of hacking: You can find those who see it being a practical skill revolving around finding imaginative ways to elegantly or minimally solve difficulties, and you can find those people who see it being an art and a craft that is certainly precious for its private sake. I can understand only seriously getting considering one particular or the other. I *can't* understand individuals who consider their school is all there's, and publish like there is no explanation for anyone at any time to undertake anything that is been accomplished ahead of. Did you believe the person failed to realize from the shelf solutions exist? This is a non-sarcastic problem. Your perception is alien to me.

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
