  1. I'm trying something different this time and having some fun with a themed challenge. I'm really excited about finally rolling this one out. Before we begin, though, a few things to get out of the way. You can skip straight to the challenge if you'd like: Without further ado, let's begin: While conducting research in the university library, Wolfen uncovered a letter, yellowed with age but pressed and preserved in the pages of Man Makes Himself by Gordon Childe. Wolfen's eyes widened as he read the header at the top: Dr. Henry Walton Jones, Jr. B
  2. I've always both identified with and cringed at Robert Downey Junior's portrayal of Iron Man. The guy obviously has issues with his parents, foods, and alcohol ... issues that he hasn't dealt with because he generally doesn't need to do so most of the time -- but that come back to bite him in the ass repeatedly during the Iron Man and Avengers series. I can relate. For years, I was able to ignore the poor food choice messages and habits I'd gotten from my family of origin, but I recently realized that the past has been dragging me down slowly and inexor
  3. Does anyone here play Ingress? If you're not familiar with it, you should check it out. It would be another great way for NF members to connect and host meetups. Ingress is an augmented reality game created by Niantic (same company behind Pokemon Go) in which players find iconic locations in their area that are actually secret portals. The immersive story behind Ingress is one of its more compelling elements. I won't share too many details because I want you to check it out for yourself, but the idea is that you capture portals and harness their energies for your team. You can link portals and
  4. The base goal for the year remains to lose weight!!! Goal weight is still 146 pounds by the end of 2016. During March, I pretty much maintained on my plateau. I don't like it up there, and I want to come down and play with all the rest of the nerds. Process goals: 1) Reduce Net Calorie Intake by 10% The good news is that I tracked my calorie intake pretty well in March. It hurt sometimes to record a monster caramel roll at 800 calories (!) or a big bowl of Kemps premium chocolate and peanut butter ice cream. But I've established my actual m
  5. Welcome, welcome!!!!! Draw up a chair and sit here by the fire while the assembled company prepares its boasts and plans for the coming month!!! I have no doubt that many brave deeds are being contemplated right now. At month's end, many a glorious tale will be told. And more than a few heroes will find themselves back here to nurse wounds and plan anew. I myself am taking a month's leisure to strum a merry tune of an evening and prepare for a long journey, waiting only for the easing of the winter cold before I am bound for the East, to see new lands and seek treasures I've only known
  6. Ok ..... during the previous challenge, this happened ...... Not literally, thank God, although I have been tossed off a horse a time or two. No, this time, it was purely figurative. I thought I had a handle on plans for moving and my daughter's wedding all while taking care of my nutrition and exercise .... but my Mom's health threw it all into a cocked hat. One wedding and one funeral later, I have managed not to gain weight and looked pretty darn good at the wedding (and not awful at the funeral), but the weeks of eating simple carbs - brought over by well-meaning friends,
  7. I was just wondering if any of you in the Rebellion still plays Ingress? I know it was bigger 2-3 years ago when it first came out, but I still play1 If you haven't heard of it, it's an MMORP, science fiction, GPS based augmented reality app game. I think it's really enjoyable - requires you to get out and about, because the gameplay is actually out in the world. If you're out walking or running, it's really entertaining. I always find myself taking longer running paths in the hopes of finding a new portal to unlock, and I'm amazed by all the cool historical places in my community that I
  8. Hey everyone! I've been playing Ingress for the past few months, and it's great. It's put out by NiaticLabs, an internal startup at Google. Basically it's a location based augmented reality game, kind of like a giant global capture the flag between the Enlightened and the Resistance. You try to capture portals, create fields, and destroy portals of the other team. The best part of this game is that it is GPS based, so you actually have to go to the place. Already it has motivated me to take a more winding path or go out for an extra walk to get to that one portal the other team has claimed.
