True, but everything is relative.

Could be sarcasm.

I did the same, I thought you'd catch on quick.


My hopes for you are ruined.

Does every new arrival get this confusing conversation?
And if I did something wrong can I have it told me instead of hinted at?

I seem to specialise in not noticing things.

Aww, you changed it from I'm just going to stop and see what happens.

I was only remarking on the fact that you felt that I did not get your humor, and I did, but when I gave the same humor back at you, it seemed to have been lost.

Yes, I'm fairly slow, and once I start going downhill I keep getting slower...
I'm "differant" if I spelt that correctly.

We all have those days.

Different is the correct spelling.

I knew I was spelling it wrong, I just couldn't remember what the right way was...
For me, every day is like that, I have Aspergers Syndrome, it's fun.
I get excessively interested in my "special field" which for me is computer games, and take it all too seriously.
It also means, and this is the main part, that I miss out on nearly all the subtle things, and some of the obvious things.
It took me 3 turns to decide stopping the merman reaching the lake was a good battle plan.
It can also be used an an excuse, like I just used it for, here it really excels.

Ah, that makes sense then, I have a friend who has Aspergers as well, so I am familiar with how that behavior functions. For him, it's drawing or painting, he focuses in to the exclusion of anything else.

False, its too long when you SKIP showering, eating, and sleeping to play Wesnoth.

That's just sad really. You probably only do play Wesnoth at that point, as you have no friends, job or life.

1138: You have created a "shrine" to the major mods on the forums.
1139: You post on this thread when you are bored of coding and playing Delfador's Memoirs.
Ehhhh... don't mind me, I'm just the annoying little modder who gets on peoples nerves. I'll just lurk till Someone says my name. :P

1141: You become paranoid enough to believe that EVERY windmill, lighthouse, ect. are put in there for a reason, and you go there to check for secret events. You also, therefore, check every single tile that has been shrouded to make sure such special tiles do not escape your notice.
