Okay, I'm really going to bed now.

My housemate's on Skype with a Canadian friend, and she put him on speakerphone so he could read aloud to both of us from the worst RPG ever.  Example: if you're half-demon and you touch a baby, there's x% chance it'll cry, y% chance it'll urinate, z% chance it'll defecate.  I kept asking, "What is the utility of that?  Can you use that as a weapon or something?"  Re: babies, I believe it was my housemate who suggested maybe you could throw one like a grenade.  I think this was after she'd done the math to find out the chance of making a baby do all 3 at once (~9%).  I said, "So if you threw ten babies..."  This then got me thinking of Jayne in the Serenity movie ("Boy, it sure would be nice if we had some grenades, doncha think?").  She of course felt the need to point out to her friend (who has yet to meet me): "So my roommate who just suggested the army of baby grenades is a good Christian."  (Overheard after I'd gone back to my room: "That's my roommate.  She's awesome.")
