O.M.G.  I've wanted this for ages and even tried to haggle a seller down to xx million a few months ago.  Now it's below 50k.  I'm glad the seller didn't want to haggle with me then... it would have been like the meepit all over again!!

Man, these captchas totally put a wrench in my strategy. Now I can't play SlS with AoBs and a mouse macro. And players on the NeoBoards have always been whiny, have you seen the boards about Faerieland cheating? Omg get over it. 



These 3 bye days have been terrible for me because I log in to see if there's a match, and then have nothing to do but read the boards.  So much hatred for Faerieland: "They need to be nerfed TODAY!!!"  "nerf nerf nerf!"  "Faerieland doesn't deserve to get on the podium."  "Halving their scores would be generous...(I'll allow them to win just enough so they don't beat my team, which is the MOST legitimate team.)"  "We all know Faerieland can't get close to these scores (because they're horrible at these games/neopets/life in general) *No offense to the dedicated Faerieland players!* (except not really, wgaf about them)  I never root for the underdog and people should be kept in their place!  Come on TNT, help me keep Faerieland down! :rolleyes:

It was in my understanding that the AC was always rigged, and no team got to the top without the help of cheating groups.  It's more farfetched to think that certain teams place higher most of the time because they're "better" (What, did the teams collectively practice and come up with plays to take down the competitiion?) rather than certain teams are a more popular pick for the cheaters and legit players alike.  There's a REASON (a stupid reason) Faerieland hasn't placed before and it's not because everyone on the team sucks and therefore doesn't deserve a win.  People can switch teams every year and perhaps the players, cheaters, or a combination of both is what's causing them to win this year.  Just like every other team in years prior.  There are definitely more cheaters playing neopets than before because Jumpstart hasn't given any reason for people to play legit really... so maybe that's where those high scores are coming from.

Then there are the self-sacrificing Faerieland players tripping over themselves to assure people they know they don't deserve to win "It was wrong of us to defile the top ranks with a pink team!  It's fair for another team to win by cheating but not the pink underdogs!
I always wondered why people on this forum had something against Herdy, but wow, the stuff he posts comes off as VERY elitist.  "Faerieland should be *very* happy to win a personal best, now put them back at the kiddie table while the rest of us deploy our cheaters to win the cup."

I'm flying to a friends house to see it!  I just hope it won't be cloudy.

In Topic: What's your biggest cooking failure?

09 July 2017 - 10:37 AM

I was cooking bacon with my friend. Long story short she got a 2nd degree burn on her hand. I slept in an uncomfortable chair next to her bed for a few days because they had to transfer us 4 hours away to a burn unit in Georgia so she could get a cadaver skin graft. So... good times. 

I read "cadaver skin graft" and after that nothing else mattered. O_o


Might as well add my story anyway...

Makin' some stir fry.  Add the oil to the wok.  Woops, too much oil, better pour some out.  A tiny drop of oil went down the outside of the wok to the gas burner below. FWOOF!  I had a huge oil fire after the flames followed the trail of the oil drop.  Luckily my roommate knew how to stop it by dumping salt over everything.  The wok was ruined though and I'm a little paranoid of oil going over the edge of pans now.

In ND's defense, they're a much large company with a much larger pool of resources. JumpStart most likely bought Neopets in the first place to add to their IP portfolio and generate base revenue while looking for a buyer, which would explain why they only did the bare minimum to keep the site from collapsing completely.

Interesting...  If they really were searching for a buyer that would make sense.  Companies are so tricky.  You can't trust anything they say!  Poor Neopets is just being passed around for their large number of registered users.  What they don't care about is most of those accounts are abandoned...
