Off Topic / Re: Life is sometimes sort of okay because...
« Last post by manwithnoname on Today at 10:35:53 am »
The poster claimed not to have a tv and that, because of this, had not heard of the programme in question. That is all. Not having a tv does not equate to an inability to watch tv programmes. I do not own a pogo stick but that doesn't mean I am unable to jump up and down.

There's been some disagreement about the original statement. I too surmised that the non-ownership of a TV had somehow been the reason that the poster hadn't heard of Spa Wars.

However, a more recent post (above) by MIK disputed that was the intention of the post, and that the fact the poster hadn't heard of Spa Wars was not in fact related to owning a TV, but rather the inference was that not having a TV was a good thing, because it meant that the poster wouldn't actually be able to WATCH Spa Wars.

So here we are. How does the poster watch Television programmes without a TV?

I would suggest that actually the poster in question CAN watch TV programmes, via alternative screens/ devices, and could actually watch Spa Wars (if they had heard of it, and were inclined to watch it), but instead chose to bring into the discussion the fact that they didn't own a TV, as if that somehow placed them on a higher intellectual plane, and a more discerning consumer of Television, than people who do own TVs, and might actually watch Spa Wars.

Hopefully the OP can confirm.

Mario Odyssey deserved it's own thread goddammit, but I'll keep rolling with this one.

Finally achieved 100% completion last night- my last Power Moon was the 'Iceburn Circuit Class S'- nearly killed me that one.
Were the the rewards - a few cosmetic touches (Gold Odyssey sails and a Top-hat on Peach's castle) - really worth the effort?
Of course they were.  :|

I'd like to take this opportunity to voice my own concerns about Tordelback's posts- consistently glib, unfriendly and completely devoid of intelligent refinement.

Something has to be done.

Hmm. So that now raises the question of what might fill the extra space, assuming the next two books aren't a bit skinnier.

It's good to see the art of debate hasn't been entirely lost in this post-TV era.  And where better to practice it than in a thread called "Life is sometimes sort of okay because...". 

(I don't even know what Spa Wars is, and I can't even be bothered to see if the answer is on the previous page... in my mind, it's a Georgian-set historical drama documenting the violent cross-country clashes between bitter rivals Bath and Buxton... plenty of steamy pool-side encounters and attempted poisonings of each other's springs).

(This assuming the strip gets only two volumes and not three, which would have contained everything and the Hogan run, too.)
this FB post details Dan Howard asking about this, getting referred to using DMs and then being answered privately that it's three Robo-Hunter books.

I too have found asking via DM will more likely get you the answer you seek.
