My question is this: Can Nordom get multiple bonuses, if you have the prerequisite stats and talk to him multiple times as a different class? Yes. Multiple upgrades are possible. (I'm using a couple of mods, but I also checked the dialogues in the unpatched game and I didn't see any restrictions on...

What is extraordinary is that it was written by a former Republican who used to go on hard-core Christian radio as a pitchman for the GOP.... What seems extraordinary to me is that, for a self-proclaimed Obama supporter who seems to believe that he himself is a reasonable, levelheaded person (since...

@Qwinn: I have installed your Fixpack, Unfinished Business, and Tweaks. I'm about halfway through the game (getting ready to enter Ravel's Maze as soon as I figure out how to do it again). Two questions: - Are any of the new fixes of the "must have" variety? - Can I install them in the middle of my ...

Bumping STR might allow me to skip from STR 18 to 19 later without going through those annoying exceptional STR fractions. In my current game, I wasn't able to go from 18 straight to 19; it went up in steps. I'm not sure if the "vanilla" game works that way. I have installed the official patch and ...

Here's a story from the Associated Press that appeared at the Fox News website: Palin Sorts Through Wardrobe to Return RNC-Bought Clothes - FOXNews.com It's not clear exactly what will happen to the clothing that Palin can actually manage to find (apparently, some of the children's underwear was mis...

Well, I look at it this way. It's not funny in real life when a couple of stupid teenagers think "frog baseball" is really cool. But it's very funny when Beavis and Butt-Head think it's cool. By the same token, it's not funny when people in real life actually believe a bunch of crap about Obama*, bu...

@dragon wench, it sounds like you might be worrying too much how other people will react to that bit of comedy. It's making of fun of people who believe in stupid conspiracy theories. If that's funny to you, then it's funny.

eBay does not allow people to sell used underwear on eBay. But some people sell photos of used underwear.

The first "$150,000 worth of clothes" we heard about was reported to the FEC (Federal Election Commission), so we know at least that much of the story is true. The McCain camp insisted that all of the clothing would be donated to charity at the end of the campaign. It would be interesting to see whe...

Do black people in America take offense of the word African-American? I mean, African isn't as specific as Italian or Irish, when I hear African-American it sounds like it doesn't matter which country you came from, you just have to be from Africa. I've tried to address issues like that in my previ...

I see your point. But let me ask you this. Suppose a child of Italian descent is adopted by a white midwestern family. Should he be called Italian American?
