Holiday Thoughts

Post by WeatherWarrior » Tue Aug 18, 2009 4:57 pm

SO on today's Feast of Boris I was thinking...

There is a holiday that increases stomach size and a holiday that increases liver size... why not a holiday that does the same for spleen? Just another way to keep HCOers down?

The spleen holiday is Oyster Egg Day.

Sneaky Pete's day doesn't really increase the amount you can drink in a worthwhile way. Green beer isn't the easiest thing to get a hold of.

Because it's not funny, apparently.

it used to be that some types of players went OXY to avoid burnout due to too many turns in other paths.

I asked this to the radio show once I think (and it's probably been asked numerous times).

J: Spleen makes no sense, and drunkenness has a different take on SSPD.
HS: Pretend Labor is extra spleen.


Actually now that I reread it, I can't tell if it was my question, because I don't remember asking about double liver. But it still answers your question I suppose.

Well it's not the same but I suppose it's better than nothing. THough we all know 10 advs from Labor Day does NOT equal what an extra 15 fullness can do for you.

Which is good *me groans about FoBs, the shitton of adv the play there and the increadible lag as everybody has the same idea*

What I wanted to say: if you don't chug Air Spleen does never equal fullness so comparing how many adv you get out of which holiday doesn't really work.

Labor Day would be awesome, if there was a way to get those turns on Day 1.

Of course, that's kinda like saying if your Grandma had a transmission she'd be a Chevrolet. Or something.
