Have you ever mediated yourself, or are you suggesting I just sit with my legs crossed and imagine myself as the literal manifestation of Sir Ron's LP persona until I'm tired?

I was going for a lying down, mid-conscious waking-dream sort of thing, but otherwise yes pretty much.

I'd shoot more for Doom Guy than Sir Ron though.

Wipes for that purpose are pretty cheap, you should go pick some up.

Half the things that are supposed to hurt an LCD monitor don't really though.  You mainly just want to avoid warping the screen.

I use Klear Screen. I don't know if I'm being ripped off but it works great so I don't care.

I'm hoping iKlear is the same fucking product, but with a 50% markup.

With a lower-case I at the start of the product name?  You'd better believe it. :advice:

Is there a well-known service for finding, say, local groups of people who luuuuurve specific gaming events? I want to find some Blazblue blood in the area, especially since I don't have the luxury of going online and enduring rage disconnects.

Either I'm terrible at internets, or no, there isn't.

Excuse me, I'm going to just... go do a little project... over here...

Found one for tabletop shit at least.

EDIT: There you go.  Now I don't have to build one.

Also hair on the back at all: y/n?

As the hairiest twenty-something I know (and formerly the hairiest teenager I knew; that was rough, let me tell you), I have some insight as to this.

You basically have two options: ignore it completely, or get it waxed.  Shaving it sounds feasible at first, but trust me; it requires a substantial amount of awkward upkeep or you're looking at a great deal of discomfort/ingrown hairs in rough places. 

Waxing is a pretty safe bet but can be kind of expensive.  It feels and looks great but you'll basically have to plan on spending about $60 every 3 months or so if you want to make it a regular thing.  At the height of my vanity, I actually kept this cycle up and I considered it just basic grooming (chicks have to wax their legs, so I have to do my back) but scheduling became difficult and I was frankly not having enough sex to keep it up after I went to law school.  Now I usually just treat myself to it in late April or early May every year in preparation for the summer.  If you want to do it more often than this but can't afford pro waxing, I actually REALLY recommend Nair.  Ultimately, I consider it worth the financial investment for no other reason than that it keeps me from smelling bad in the summer when I'm outside but YMMV.

The other option is to just let it ride.  Some dudes use beard trimmers to get it down if they have especially long body hair; I actually do but have never tried this so I can't attest.  This option can actually play in your favor; many, many more women than you'd think really dig hair and by the time any woman actually sees your naked back in all its glory it's usually too late to turn back.  That said, you have to be careful; the barbarian card is a tough one to play so if you're even slightly slovenly or balding your hair will make you look like an ogre.  The most important thing is to stay in shape.  A broad chest and set of shoulders will spin body hair like you wouldn't believe, and a hairy belly will actually play in your favor in that you won't be under nearly as much pressure to have a six-pack.

Whatever you do, do it with confidence.  Above all, body hair is manly.  Sell it.

I have perpetual black circles under my eyes. Is there anything to do to save this region?
Do you take a shower in the morning?  Before you do, put two spoons in the freezer.  When you get out of the shower, hold the backs (bottoms?) of the spoons underneath your eyes for one to two minutes.  Done on a regular basis this will reduce visible circles under your eyes.

I'm assuming you don't want to do this but they also make concealer sticks that kind of look like a lip gloss and in the mornings I just color over any eye circles.

I feel tired and lethargic at all times! Taking naps in the middle of the day leaves me more tired! Am I being haunted by a ghost!?
I have the same problem and I've found that making sure I have enough protein when I wake up helps me get through the day without feeling like I need a nap. I don't always feel SUPER PEPPY but I am not taking a nap on the bathroom couch downstairs during my lunch hour anymore.

I've been in the girls' room.

People who think the boy's room is gross have never seen a menstrual pad stuck to the toilet seat.

I get the impression that in most venues where men's toilets are notoriously less clean, they also receive a great deal more traffic.

I had to clean bathrooms for a grocery store for a bit.
The guys? Easy. Walk in, wipe the sinks, wash the floors, etc.
The womens?

Every type of fluid, fecal matter, boogers on mirrors...
The most disgusting thing I've ever seen.

I quit that job soon after being assigned bathroom detail
