The "I Didn't Comment in Another Thread" Thread

On the one hand, this is true. On the other hand, I suspect at least most of the people who seem so miserable could do with a good look in the mirror before trying it. As the saying goes, The only thing all our dysfunctional relationships have in common is you.
"On the one hand, you've set me on fire for making all of these 'on the other hand' arguments. On the other hand, I'll be warm and toasty for the rest of my life."

Back in the day, there was one session where the party didn't have a 10-ft pole, so one of the other players made a comment that we did have a 6-ft Irishman, whereupon several members of the party picked up my character and heaved him into the area we thought might be trapped.
Three questions immediately come to mind.
1. What was an Irishman doing in a D&D game?
2. Was the Irishman one of many human subraces one could choose from?
3. If yes to (2), what kind of racial benefits you got for choosing Irishman? ;)

Lasers are only issued to those with Security Clearance VIOLET. Citizen, you do not have the correct clearance to have one please report to meeting room 2A for [REDACTED]. Remember Happiness is mandatory.

Citizen, lasers, with regulation six-shot barrels of appropriate clearance are standard Troubleshooter equipment. Are you suggesting that Friend Computer would, through careless application of security clearances, put Troubleshooters in the field with anything less than the full compliment of high-quality, reliable equipment necessary to shoot commiemutanttraitorscum trouble?

Misinformation is treason, Friend Citizen. Please report to your nearest confession booth for termination debriefing concerning this incident.

My wife's first D&D experience included my brother's player character dragging around a goblin corpse and tossing it everywhere he thought there might be a pressure trap.

That, interestingly, is what sold her on the game. (She had come from CRPGs and MMOs, where that kind of freedom to do your own thing is much more limited, by necessity.)

I played my first game when I was eight - the DM had to explain to me that flasks of oil were used as fuel for lanterns and for lighting things on fire...
That was the moment I fell in love with the game. :p
I spent all my extra gold on oil and torches and spent the whole game setting fire to the corpses of everything I killed.
Some of which I'd killed by setting them on fire, lol.

1. Telling bad jokes. And drinking.
2. Technically it was a 3/4 Irish-, 1/4 Sicilian-man.
3.
- Resistance to alcohol poisoning.
- Advantage on Deception rolls.
- The Lucky trait.
