The Respected Realms Regional Message Board
If it's charlie-horses (leg cramps) you're dealing with, try putting the affected leg flat against the bed, pushing down on the kneecap, and pulling back the toes until it subsides. Sounds a bit ridiculous, but it works.
In the interim, eat your bananas.
I've done all of that. *She put the lime in the coconut, she drank 'em bot' up*
I was moving stuff around and I sprained muscles in my back, shoulder, and neck. I've been on muscle relaxants and painkillers the whole week so I have been resting a lot. But I am feeling better now.
I get those.. it happens in my left leg when pointing my toes to stretch.. that is followed by excessive swearing and lots of rage! I've found out that method there does stop it though!
You mist have been lifting cars or safes or something equally heavy to injure yourself like that.
I'm glad that I'm not around to witness that.
Nope, I was heaving myself up a very tall, very awkwardly angled ladder in the campus theatre, while carrying a bunch of heavy cables. I had to go up and down the ladder several times. I forgot to stretch out first and I'm not in that great of shape lol. Oh and the top of the ladder is a tiny hole that I had to contort my body just to get through. It was designed for smaller people.
We interrupt this conversation for delivery of a new issue.
Lion Dad Sparks Child-Rearing Sentiment
The controversial book "Battle Hymn of the Lion Dad", which depicts a foreign-born father brutally raising his children to outperform their peers, has whipped up a great debate over parenting in Tiltpa.
"Look at Tiltpa's children: fat, lazy, dumb, and unsuccessful," says the book's author Konrad Lee. "Now look at my two girls. Attending top colleges! Lawyer and doctor! Making a difference with their lives! Making good money with their lives! It takes iron discipline, regular beatings, and the sacrifice of their childhoods, and I might not remember their names every once in a while, but who cares about that when I can brag about my boys - I mean girls."
[Verdict: Tiltpa has policies that you do not seem familiar with, Konrad. Every child has the right to a childhood. And you have just confessed to abuse. Conclusion: You suck, get out of my bleedin' office.]
"Poor babies," wails concerned mother Imogen True, clutching her teenage son tight to her bosom. "That book suggests the most awful punishments - hit our children, starve them, make them do their homework. The worst thing I ever did to my cupcake was give him a little gold star for trying his best. I suggest we ban this book and while we are at it, lengthen the school holidays so I can take my huggle-bug to Mr Happy's Funland again."
[Verdict: Polar opposites are often equal in undesirability. No, lady, we shouldn't hit them, but homework is a part of the kid's education--and while that's nothing to freak out about, it's still something they'll need to survive ON THEIR OWN. Yes, ON THEIR OWN, lady. Fact: Eventually, you're gonna die and likely leave your kid with no knowledge of how to flush a toilet. And some strategies can be adapted....heavily. Conclusion:You suck too, take your kid out with you.
"Lion dad?" queries Cooper Washington, grasping his young son under one arm, while feeding a ferocious pikmin from the other. "That's actually just what our kids need these days - a taste of the wild. All newborn children should be left in the wilderness to fend for themselves. The strong and resourceful will survive to better our nation, and the weak... well at least the pikmins won't go hungry."
[Verdict: What's your inspiration, Sparta or Alternia?! Because last I checked, neither one of those two did very well. Plus, that Pikmin is making a mess--the hell kinda nectar is that?! Just leave. Leave, give your kid to an orphanage, and try it yourself.
The Government Position
The government is preparing to dismiss this issue.
oh! Next time any of you get that you should ask The Celestial Realm of Goddess Relief Office what options to pick! She is currently researching issues and effects!
Don't be so sedentary. I know that it's easy to become so, but get some exercise.
There is a thread, somewhere on NSG, that charts the same thing. ;)
Yes.. But it's not quite as detailed. actually I think GRO should go even farther and record all stats affected by each issue option. There is one evil tax related issue where if you pick option one it completely ruins your nation. reducing it's stats back to factory settings after months and even years or work.
