GET OFF MY CHEST
Okay, time for a simplified illustration of what happened recently. 
 
I lost my wallet, it was in my shorts, I am living happily ever after (I wish). 
 
Anyway, while I was looking for it, everyone else was trying to help me when in fact they just aggrivated me.  Ever have one of those days?
 
"Oh, did you leave it at work?  Does someone else have it now?  OH MY GOSH, IT'S IN THE HANDS OF A CRIMINAL AND YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER RECOVER!"  (I might be exaggerating a bit in this entry, folks). 
 
"Is it in the couch?  It's in the couch.  I bet it's in the couch."
 
"Did you leave it at work?  Are you sure it's at home?  You might want to cancel your card."
 
"Did you leave it upstairs on your night stand?  You know, that place you already checked five times?"
 
"Now, you're sure it didn't run away?  If you have a picture we could put up flyers."
 
"How did you even lose it in the first place?  Why are you so irresponsible?  You suck."
 
"Is it upstairs?  You should check ten times just to be safe."
 
"You should move the couch.  I bet it's under the couch."
 
...
 
So, the way my brain works (when I'm problem solving" is to calm down and think through things logically.  In other words, I do a process of elimination based on where I've checked and my usual habits.  It's sort of like solving a mystery, only instead of murder it's a misplaced item.  Also, I should mention I knew I had it on my person when I was at home, so I wasn't worried in the slightest. 
 
In other words, all of these "helpful" questions and concerns only ended up hindering my thought process throughout the entire time I was doing anything productive.  It's kinda like Professor Layton about to find the Golden Apple and then Luke says "Professor, what's the Golden Apple?  How do you think we should go about finding it?  Why is it here?  What's that guy's name again?  How long have we been here?  Do you like the color blue?  I like the color blue."
 
O_____o  (My face the entire time this was happening due to pointless questions).
 
If there's a moral to be learned here, it's this:  People screw up in life.  It happens.  This time it was just a misplaced wallet at home which really wasn't a big deal.  Let people work it out themselves if they don't want your help right away.  Once they've run through everything they can think of and then they ask for assistence, THEN act on the urge to help them.  Every person has a brain and every person is capable of using them.  Have a little faith in humanity.
 
If you'll excuse me, I'll be banging my head against the wall regretting I ever mentioned to anyone that I was missing anything ever...

Ah, yes. "Hello, I'm calling on behalf of someone on the internet who says she didn't get her Delorean. No, I dont actually KNOW her, per se, or have proof she didn't get it, but she hates phone calls so this is a completely viable alternative." :P

Most people think puzzle games through and figure them out through intelligence and wit.

I just smash the square peg into the round hole until it breaks the hole big enough to go in.

Tekulo is the supreme overlord of lameness and illusory instigation and is far inferior to the illustrious and estimable Nuile, esquire, who is so awesome that a mere glimpse of his debonair, dashing handsomeness and general coolness blinds and in some cases melts eyeballs (note that I am not liable for any injuries acquired through staring at me) and is tall and eminent.

Hello! Today it occured to me that I chat with a handful of staff members both on and off the site. this also made me realize they report directly to you. Whatever gossip they have spread about me behind my back, I assure you, is the truth (unless it isn't).

I remember wheb (edit: wheb is totally fetch and is in no way a typo)
