Difficulty score 16. Annoying is a good description. Nothing more than region interesections for the computer, but I found a hidden pair that helped.

12:50 pm

12:50 pm

...there are a lot of things on those stairs
4:03 pm

Gr8-H8

It's a rollerskate causing an ankle injury worth $1000, and a rake causing a hand injury of $2000
4:13 pm
Leigh

hehe
4:13 pm
Leigh

i'm really friggin clumsy, and I can't see how I'd do $2,000 of damage with a rake.
4:14 pm
Strider_45

hospital visits are expensive
4:14 pm
Leigh

true.
4:14 pm
Leigh

especially wihtout health insurance
4:15 pm

wha?
4:21 pm

snppngtrtle

maybe
4:22 pm
snppngtrtle

maybe
4:22 pm
snppngtrtle

oops
4:22 pm
Leigh

i understand the math, i just don't understand how it fits with the entirety thing.
4:23 pm
Leigh

cause i thought that meant each person was liable for the entire amount ($700)
4:23 pm
snppngtrtle

Thats if he sues all three of them, but he's only suing one
4:23 pm
Leigh

but with his math, plaintiff shouldn't recover against A or B since plaintiff was more liable than them
4:23 pm
snppngtrtle

Yeah no kidding
4:32 pm
Strider_45

I just realized your icon is Sunshine!
4:33 pm
Leigh

doesn't she look so happy?
4:33 pm

5:06 pm
snppngtrtle

Wow that's weird
5:06 pm
snppngtrtle

I don't remember a no swearing deal in the rules
5:07 pm
bloodaxe

that's true...
5:07 pm
snppngtrtle

Plus some people say a lot worse stuff on here all the time
5:07 pm
bloodaxe

but i guess they just make such a big deal about it on playbabble.
5:07 pm
snppngtrtle

Really?
5:08 pm

5:08 pm
snppngtrtle

Why!?!
5:09 pm
bloodaxe

i haven't been able to stop listening to Justin Timberlake.
5:09 pm
snppngtrtle

Yay picture time

5:09 pm
snppngtrtle

Wow, that is so unfortunate.

5:12 pm

Among others...
5:13 pm

5:13 pm
Leigh

he has a particular soft spot for bad techno
5:13 pm
snppngtrtle

huh, he's still on, he must not be paying attention.
5:14 pm
bloodaxe

have you heard "Atomic Food"?
it's a song.
5:14 pm
Leigh

hey, who was the person who had the auto-fill greens program?
5:14 pm
snppngtrtle

No I don't think so
5:14 pm
snppngtrtle

Krys10 I think.
5:14 pm
snppngtrtle

Here's a copy:
5:15 pm
snppngtrtle

javascript:for (i=1; i<=9; i++) {for (j=1; j<=9; j++) {if (grid[i][j].value == '') {ClearTinySquares(i,j);}}}for (i=1; i<=9; i++) {for (j=1; j<=9; j++) {if (grid[i][j].value != '') {var tmp_value = grid[i][j].value;for (k=1; k<=9; k++) {for (l=1; l<=9; l++) {if (grid[k][l].value == '') {if ((Math.ceil(i/3) == Math.ceil(k/3) && Math.ceil(j/3) == Math.ceil(l/3)) || i == k || j == l) {grid[k][l]['mini'][tmp_value] = -1;}}}}}}}for (i=1; i<=9; i++) { for (j=1; j<=9; j++) { if (grid[i][j].value == '') { for (k=1; k<=9; k++) { if (grid[i][j]['mini'][k] != -1) grid[i][j]['mini'][k] = 1; }}}}for (i=1; i<=9; i++) {for (j=1; j<=9; j++) {if (grid[i][j].value == '') {for (k=1; k<=9; k++) {if (grid[i][j]['mini'][k] != 1) grid[i][j]['mini'][k] = 0;}}}}PopulatePuzzle(grid);void(0);
5:15 pm
bloodaxe

whoa!
5:15 pm
bloodaxe

what's that?
5:15 pm
Leigh

neato
5:15 pm
snppngtrtle

It automatically filled in the greens
5:15 pm
bloodaxe

how does it work?
5:15 pm
snppngtrtle

Just copy and paste into your browser window
5:16 pm
snppngtrtle

It's java
5:16 pm
Leigh

i've never used it before cause it's kinda cheaty
5:16 pm
snppngtrtle

I'm not really sure how it works, but it does.
5:16 pm
bloodaxe

whoa!
5:16 pm
bloodaxe

that's awesome.
5:16 pm
snppngtrtle

It's not cheating when it isn't a contest.
5:16 pm
Leigh

but it is soooo much faster
5:16 pm
Leigh

lol
5:17 pm
snppngtrtle

plus it just gives you possibilities, just like if you penciled in possible numbers on a paper sudoku
5:17 pm
snppngtrtle

But without the human error of course
5:17 pm
Leigh

so it's not cheating in solitaire to just turn over all the cards?
5:17 pm
Leigh

cause it's not a contest
5:17 pm
snppngtrtle

That's not a good analogy
5:18 pm
Leigh

lol
5:18 pm
snppngtrtle

It's like using the glowy function that tells you the different places you can put the cards.
5:18 pm
Leigh

if your rule is "if not contest, then not cheating"
5:18 pm
Leigh

then it is
5:18 pm
snppngtrtle

That's true
5:19 pm
bloodaxe

hm...i think all the greens just confuse me more.
5:19 pm
snppngtrtle

Turning the cards over in solitare isn't cheating, but it's also not the same as using the greens.
5:19 pm
snppngtrtle

That's my rule anyway
5:19 pm
Leigh

i agree with the second part of that sentence.
5:20 pm
snppngtrtle

Ok let me put it this way:
5:20 pm
snppngtrtle

You play games to have fun right?
5:21 pm
snppngtrtle

Turning all the cards over in solitare isn;t necessarily cheating (at least by my definition) but it's also not very fun.
5:21 pm
Leigh

there's a difference between "it's not cheating" and "i don't give a damn if it's cheating"
5:21 pm
Leigh

cheating = doing something outside the rules of a game
5:21 pm
snppngtrtle

I can still have fun while using the greens, although I sometimes don't use them when I want a greater challenge.
5:21 pm
Leigh

just cause there's only one player doesn't mean it's not a game with rules
5:21 pm
Leigh

yeah, same here
5:22 pm
Leigh

i try not to use them but i will if i get stuck and i'm in Torts
5:22 pm
bloodaxe

i'm listening to "my humps" right now.
5:22 pm
snppngtrtle

But the greens aren't against the rules, just as marking possible solutions in the corners is not against the rules as well.
5:23 pm
snppngtrtle

Arrrg darn chatbox grammer skills!
5:23 pm
Leigh

right, that's why i said it's "kinda cheaty" instead of saying it was cheating <g>
5:23 pm
snppngtrtle

That is sick, bloodaxe
5:23 pm
Leigh

also, bloodaxe, i think i just lost about 75% of whatever respect i had for you.
5:23 pm
Strider_45

I object you saying I have horrible taste in music, I enjoy good music too, and I can tell the difference, but that doesnt mean I can't like bad music too
5:23 pm
snppngtrtle

Darn semantics
5:23 pm
Leigh

lol
5:23 pm
Leigh

you're the one who said it
5:24 pm
bloodaxe

that's ok leigh...i think i've also just lost my last shred of self-respect.
5:24 pm
Leigh

we're just repeating your assessment (because we happen to agree with it)
5:24 pm
Strider_45

An I would never intentionally listen to "my humps" although I might chuckle if it came on
5:24 pm
Strider_45

An I would never intentionally listen to "my humps" although I might chuckle if it came on
5:24 pm
snppngtrtle

I was trying to use my snaky lawyer skills
5:24 pm
Leigh

hehe
5:24 pm
snppngtrtle

And I feel kinda dirty now.
5:24 pm
Leigh

lol
5:24 pm
Leigh

but it's a delightful kind of dirty.
5:25 pm
snppngtrtle

And strider, there is no excuse for Avril
5:25 pm
Strider_45

I'm just kidding btw bloodaxe, I'm not offended at all, I love bad music and I"m not ashamed
5:25 pm
Strider_45

Avril is an amzaing musician and I'm not backing down on that
5:25 pm
snppngtrtle

hehe
5:25 pm
snppngtrtle

Tool
5:25 pm
Strider_45

What about them... or are you calling me a Tool?
5:26 pm
Leigh

now, Tool is actually not bad
5:26 pm
snppngtrtle

I'm calling you a tool
5:26 pm
bloodaxe

see, that's where you and i differ strider.
i may enjoy listening to "my humps", "smack that" and j-tim, but i'll never defend their musical abilities.
5:26 pm
bloodaxe

tool is great.
5:26 pm
Strider_45

I would never defend their musical abilities either. I'm talking about Avril... how dare you dump her in with those hacks.
5:27 pm
snppngtrtle

Hahahahaha!
5:27 pm
Strider_45

:) damn sarcasm not translating properly over the internet
5:27 pm
snppngtrtle

Musical abilities
5:27 pm
bloodaxe

5:28 pm
snppngtrtle

*sigh
5:28 pm
snppngtrtle

There should be a sarcasto button
5:29 pm
Strider_45

I think you guys just haven't listened to enough Avril... why don't you come over and we can listen to all her albums
5:30 pm
Leigh

lol
5:30 pm
bloodaxe

i'm totally there strider. give me a couple months, and i'll come out and visit.
5:30 pm
snppngtrtle

Gee, I think I have something else to do today... and every other day...
5:30 pm
snppngtrtle

Yay Doug!
5:30 pm
Gr8-H8

Sometimes I feel like I only have one oar in my lifeboat.
5:31 pm
Gr8-H8

Like the first half of this class.
5:31 pm
bloodaxe

don't get your hopes up babana. i still have to find a job...and get home.
5:31 pm
Strider_45

hehe
5:31 pm
Leigh

heh, i think that was more like not having a lifeboat at all
5:32 pm
snppngtrtle

Not even for Avril?
5:32 pm
snppngtrtle

What if Avril was in a lifeboat with only one oar? Would she write a crappy song about it?
5:33 pm
Leigh

i'm sure she would
5:33 pm
Leigh

and she'd talk about how cold it was
5:33 pm
Leigh

and tell some creepy person she doesn't know to take her off into the wilderness
5:33 pm
Strider_45

Your the oar for my lifeboat...yeaheeheah yeaheeyeah yeaheeyeah.
5:33 pm
snppngtrtle

Yay! I made it to expert in the rankings!

5:34 pm
snppngtrtle

I totally haven't been paying attention.
5:35 pm
Strider_45

5:35 pm
snppngtrtle

5:44 pm
snppngtrtle

5:44 pm
snppngtrtle

You can sleep in Raph's room!
5:44 pm
bloodaxe

5:45 pm
snppngtrtle

I already promised it to Alexis for a while, but you two can share right?
5:45 pm
Strider_45

man, raph is such a slut
5:45 pm
snppngtrtle

Yup! in the turtle cage. It's got hay and stuff.
5:45 pm
bloodaxe

he doesn't like me...ever since i tried to pull the hairball that he was eating from his mouth.
5:45 pm
bloodaxe

nice..just like jesus.
5:46 pm
snppngtrtle

Unfortunately Andy has a prescriptive easement on my couch, so I can't offer you that.
