JUST WHAT IS THIS HOME GAME I'VE HEARD THEM TALK ABOUT SO MUCH LATELY?
Why, it's an innovative jazz-rock fusion of cable's worst and the warm
gooey fun of IRC. Sprinkle in liberal amounts of the Science of Mystery,
add an assortment of faceless personalities to help, and all that you're
left with is a harmless pastime for children of all ages.
HOW DID SUCH A PREPOSTEROUS CONCEPT COME INTO EXISTENCE?
The Sci-Fi Channel first presented this structure on January 25, 1997...
Several thousand hurtful circus geeks crawled all over Roger Corman's "The Day the World
Ended" as the world watched the results on the bottom of the screen. Did
it work? I don't know. I wasn't there. Residue from this might still be
found somewhere around
WELL, THAT'S ALL WELL AND GOOD. HOW DO I PLAY?
Get an IRC client and violently "JACKIN" to events.scifi.com at the
appointed time. When you've gotten this far, go over the bridge and join
#MST-HomeGame (simple enough?). Tune your Scientific Atlanta Addressable
Converter. Watch the screen. Spit out obscure references. That's it.
WHERE CAN I GET MY HORN REPAIRED?
Oh, boy. Is THIS a loaded question, or what? We'll, let's give it a shot ..
Most horn players should be be able to perform basic maintenance on their instruments. This would include such things as cleaning the instrument, oiling valves, restringing valves, changing spit valve corks, and so forth. Local music shops should be able to assist with these items, and your fellow hornists are usually more than glad to help as well.
For more major repairs (overhauls, dent removal, etc.) you probably want to take your instrument to a known reputable repair shop, as improper repairs can severely damage the instrument, sometimes irrevocably. If you are fortunate enough to have a "custom" horn, you may want to either send the instrument back to the manufacturer, or ask the manufacturer for a referral. Many of the more skilled repair shops listed below will have some degrees of familiarities with many makes of horns - you might ask them if they've ever worked on an Alexander, for example.
SO WHAT'S THIS PAGE FOR?
1. To archive the results of past experiments in a clear and concise
2. To present information on upcoming experiments.
3. To increase productivity by reducing downtime.
4. A lot of people don't like you, Mitchell. Fact is, I don't like
you much myself. Why is that?
5. What's the matter with boot blacking? We both like it VERY MUCH.
6. Actually, it's my fault. You see, I'm capable of reading lips.
WHAT IS WHEEZING?
Wheezing is the whistling or rattling sound that occurs when air flows through obstructed airways. At the start of an asthma attack, wheezing usually only occurs while exhaling, or breathing out, but as the attack progresses, wheezing may then be heard both while inhaling and exhaling. If after the attack progresses further, the asthmatic then stops wheezing, this may indicate that many bronchioles (small airways) have become completely blocked, which is a very serious condition.
HAS ANYONE SEEN GIMPY?
DOES SWEAT DAMAGE LATEX?
Yes and no. Sweat in itself contains body oil that like other oils slowly disintegrates the material. But it needs time
to perform its corrosive deed and thus a simple rinsing with a mild dishwash soap will clean it enough. Left to itself,
the oil with either eat through the material or cause it to harden and become fragile. But the sweat from a days
wear will not even begin to do any damage before you remove the garment and rinse it, and thus may be
I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH A FRIEND OF MINE. HE IS ACTIVE IN HIS CHURCH
AND FEELS STRONGLY THAT ANY RPG IS EVIL. WHAT CAN I TELL HIM?
Roleplaying is an escapist activity that requires a good imagination, but it is not recommended for those with a poor grip on reality. It does not make weirdos, it simply attracts them.
WHAT ABOUT A PERSON THAT HAS LOST THEIR VIRGINITY. CAN IT BE "REGAINED"?
Physically no. Memories also remain. But I believe in what I call 'neo-virginity.' It's the mental change, the redirection of the heart of a person in vowing to live a life of abstinence until marriage. I don't believe in holding a person's past against them. But they are accountable for the present.
WHAT IS A BREAST FORM?
A breast form is a prosthesis worn either inside a bra or attached to the body to simulate the weight,
bounce, feel, movement, and especially shape of the natural female breast. Depending on the
material or shape used, these qualities can be achieved to different degrees.
DO YOU PUBLISH RATINGS FOR DIFFERENT BEERS?
Sort of. I keep an informal list of my evaluation of the beers I've tried over the past 10 years or so.

WHY IS WHIPPING FUN?
One way of thinking about whipping is as another way of touching someone. People who are just getting into SM frequently play with spanking; it's fun to be spanked! It's a punishment, it's a strong stimulus, it hurts very pleasurably. But if you've ever spanked anyone for a long time you know that your spanking hand wears out quickly!
Well, that's what whips are for--to allow you to hit someone for a longer time, without tiring out. There are many varieties of whips (cat-o-nine tails, heavy floggers, canes, light braided switches, and on and on), all of which feel very different and which have their own individual effect. A whip-loving top will often carry a veritable arsenal of different floggers, but they are all extensions of the top's touch.
WHAT IS ISLAM?
"Islam" is the Arabic word for "submission." It is derived from the
root S-L-M, from which the word "salaam" or "peace" is derived. The
essence of Islam is the complete submission of one's self and life to
the Will of Allah -- the One and Eternal God and the Lord and Creator
of the Universe. One who submits to Allah is thus called a Muslim.
Muslims number about one billion, almost a fifth of the world's
population. Islam is thus one of the world's largest religions, and
its present rate of growth and vitality is probably unrivaled.
