Oh no, you rolled a 8 power loss. This means that the last diesel generator goes to the middle aged orc wearing a Tebow for President shirt. Roll again for toilet paper, but be careful of the couponer elf.

@LacunaKale But my shopping cart of greased wheels adds a +4 to my reflex modifier. I'd like to roll to steal the generator back.

I was intimidated by whatever animal that is that has such huge, fearsome eyes. bubblegum casting

Fan-effing-tastic! I may print these out and do them at home even though I'm hundreds of miles away from Sandy's wrath.

That Tumblr incredible.

"not liking Camper Van Beethoven 'enough'" good god.

Tragically Ludicrous

When I was about 6 a hurricane hit Cape Cod during our family vacation.

We got to take baths in the lake! It was awesome.

@Tragically Ludicrous Was that Bob? I don't remember it well, but I remember my dad went out in the hurricane to take pictures.

Tragically Ludicrous

@discombobulated Yeah! It was a big highlight of my young life.

I filled in "fuck" or "fucked" for all blanks except the proper nouns and it almost made sense. I'm real mature.

Once during a power outage, I realized the flashlight's batteries were dead. I had no idea whether I had extra batteries or where I would have put them until -- eureka! -- vibrator! Made my way to the Special Drawer by feel, acquired batteries, crisis averted.

Sex toys save lives, folks.

@katekari Hmm, I think I'd be more likely to take batteries out of the flashlights to use in my vibrator; the lights are off and I'm going to die, so I might as well enjoy myself.

OhMarie

@MoxyCrimeFighter Yep, before I got a plug-in vibe every battery in the house was in danger. Even now, most of our AA batteries are in Wii remotes instead of whatever other thing they should be in.

What if you're not going to die alone in the hurricane because you have your longtime best friend roommate but her boyfriend is here so you are third wheeling in your own home?

@kangerine

Ooof. That'a toughie.

I send you Internet Hugs.

@kangerine shoot. I hope it's not too terrible.

baked bean

So is the lack of posts and comments today because of the super storm?

*oblivious person in Midwest*

Pyxis

@baked bean I wonder if this is really the case. Are a majority of 'Pinners from the east coast? It would be interesting to see a density map for the site.

TARDIStime

@Pyxis I would love that!

I'm curious to see if there are any Pinners near me!

Rock and Roll Ken Doll

@baked bean
Yeah, that would be my guess.

My mom from Pa. just texted me that not only is she still alive, but her power is still on!

coconuts

@baked bean I would assume so. It seems like most of the internet is pretty dead. Heck, even in my city a bunch of people lost power.

@Pyxis I would like to see a map, too!
