Bone chinaroons in the stage directions reinforce plot developments?

I'm back! Disaster over! My power supply arrived, and I put it all back together again. I've learned a few things over the last week:

  • Huh? I can repair computers? When did I learn to do that? Did I get some skill points and not even feel them get distributed?

  • I have critical self-doubt issues which are slowly eating me alive and stopping me from doing anything. I must do something about this.

  • One should plan out a list like this before one attempting to draft it, because if you run out of stuff, you'll feel like a fool. XP

Anyhow, I was reading Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll House" (a play) out of a textbook I had laying around, and I noticed these questions at the end...

Notice anything about what was almost question three? "Bone chinaroons in the stage directions reinforce plot developments?" That's not a question, it's an offer! XD I have a lot of counter-questions, though: what the heck is a chinaroon? How can I bone it in the stage directions? Are chinaroons hawt? How would that reinforce plot development? Why do I want to answer, "Don't mind if I do?" See, the way this is phrased, I end up with a mental image of the chinaroon as something I would want to bone.

I find this simple series of typos to be rather inspiring.

Can you have 100% knowledge in something? I mean, those things shift and change constantly.

in Rifts yes... in real life... yes... if it's something that no longer is being advanced.... like.... oh I don't know, the mapping of the Human Genome..

I prefer the D&D system, myself. I find it a little more intuitive and natural.

Besides that, I don't want to be a Rifts character. They have very short shelf lives, if you know what I mean.

that is true, 5 minutes after creation of a Zapper R.C.C., it died in combat.... I do believe that's a new world record.... because I don't think any group anywhere else has gotten into combat so soon after starting their game, and gone through enough rounds to actually kill off a character.... in less that half an hour... what with all the bickering, annoying rules-lawyering...
