A Megaton Load of Grassy Debris

Actually, the weight is just under ten thousand, and the units aren’t specified –it’s just that I can’t carry more than 442 at a time, so moving this thing back to town should get some blood pumpin’. If you don’t know what the hell I’m talking about, you’re not playing Eulora yet. But you should be. There are plenty of reasons1 to play, but today’s is sponsored by my 51K Dry Clump of Grass find. From a *tiny* exploration marker. Behold:

51765 Clumps

That’s one Little Bit o’ Nothing and one swipe of a Finest Improved Pickaxe for 51,765 Dry Clumps of Grass. Previously, my biggest find was from a Small, and it was 47. Anyway, this wholly unexpected whack to the pockets from the Grass Fairy dug me well out of my mining slump.

I’ve managed no such feats in crafting, although I did witness Mircea Mircescu’s 1 Bitcent crafting milestone the other day:

1 Bitcent in Craftin'

Ends with an A! Begins with an E!2

  1. S.MG’s first game title, Bitcoin RCE, possibly the only MMO out right now that isn’t a predictable, linear quest-chase where nothing really matters and everyone wins…and besides, there’s stuff like Slithy Toves and Wooly Mushrooms. []
  2. Rock out with yer cock out. []

  1. As per jurov’s suggestion I’ll be signing like so from now on. []
  2. Bets resolved from earlier placing periods: 1074 []
  3. Note: last month’s pending count was erroneously reported as 8; it should have been 7. Derp. []
  4. This one’s been a rollercoaster ride; guy broke his well-established form and “announced” he’d leave, now he’s saying he never meant he’d resign. I’m very curious how this’ll end up, and how long it’ll take, at that []
