Ice Cream and UHall

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Prince Caspian, Feb 13, 2012.

  1. So we have two flavors. Chocolate and Vanilla.

    Some people like chocolate.
    Some people like vanilla.

    It's not enough to like chocolate or vanilla around here.

    • If I like chocolate, and you like vanilla, you're an idiot for liking vanilla.
    • If you like vanilla, and I like chocolate, then you are sure I hate vanilla with every fiber of my being and hate you like poison because you like vanilla.
    • When a discussion starts about lime sherbert, I'm gonna steer the conversation back to chocolate.
    • Heaven forbid that both chocolate and vanilla be available, and you can choose either one, because you and I are gonna still argue the merits of our favorite flavors and the shortcomings of yours.

    I guess that's just the nature of message boards. I guess one can argue that we all have to eat the same ice cream, though.

    To that, I'd say:
    • We are all Ultima Online players. We do at least have that common ground at the end of the day.
    • If you totally disagree with what I have to say, that's perfectly fine. Debating the point is why we have the Reply button. But being a dickwad just because you think I'm wrong (and I may very well be) is really not needed. And it sure doesn't make you more persuasive.
    • Just because someone says something doesn't make it true, no matter how many people seemingly agree with him.
    • If I don't agree with you, that doesn't make you stupid, homely, unloveable or evil. It just means we don't agree. That's fine. If you agree with me on every possible issue, you are my clone. And talking to a clone would get boring in a hurry.
    • We had an old saying in the arcade about Street Fighter 2 characters (to date myself).... "If a particular fighter sucks, chances are good you're not playing him to properly take advantage of his/her strengths." If Ninjitsu just sucks because you dont find it useful, it's safer to adopt the mindset you just haven't figured out how to make it enjoyable for you.
    • Trolls win when you don't ignore them. No matter what is said, that's the final score. If you don't bite, you won't be pulled out of the lake.

    Some of the Chocolate of Vanilla types seem to act like the other flavor is Octopus or Wasabi flavor totally foreign to them, instead of something actually common.

    Water off of a ducks back.
    Our passion for the game often leads many of us to quick myopic rantings due to some self imposed level of intensity as we jam through our routines in our virtual world.
    The diversity of players from hardcore pvprs to the carebear that logs in just to tend the garden and chat is what makes uo what it is today.
    For me its all about balance. I think about open mindedness and the right to speak ones mind regardless of intelligence and passion for the game.
    The caveat is whether we take posts by others personally or not.
    For me I consider it a red flag if I get upset about in game experiences or posts. Life is too short.......
    The pursuit of happiness will not be derailed by uo

    Fun, Fun, Fun..... Pharell
    I want to go!

    The problem about chocholate and vanilla isn't, for chocholate, that vanilla is available...but that now when you want only chocolate no matter what there's always bit of vanilla mixed in to it.

    I like chocolate and it really is okay with me if you like vanilla.

    We'll get alone fine if you'll just keep your nasty vanilla off my lovely chocolate.

    I got my wife the Kitchen Aid ice cream maker attachment for christmas this year. My first attempt was at espresso ice cream.. came out pretty good, kinda gritty though.. The strawberry and oreo ones were delicious. Heres the recipe scroll:

    3c half & half
    6 egg yolks
    2/3c sugar
    pinch of salt
    2 1/2 T ground espresso coffee beans
    1 T Kahlua
    1 t vanilla extract

    -heat half & half until it forms bubbles around edge of pot/pan
    -beat egg yolks, sugar and salt. Slowly add half & half mixture. Rinse pot/pan and pour everything back in, and return to heat.
    -cook over med/low heat for 5-10 mins, stirring constantly, until thickened.
    -pour mixture through wire mesh to strain
    -add espresso, kahlua and vanilla. Stir and place into refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
    -mix 25-30mins in the ice cream maker.
    -end result is soft-serve ice cream. put in freezer to make regular ice cream.

    You can use the same recipe for an ice cream base.. just leave out the espresso, and say add some crushed oreos, or strawberries ect.

    Can substitute amaretto or rum for the kahlua.

    wow.. so back to the OP

    if you dont like chocolate or vanilla, make your own flavor. That uniqueness makes Ultima what it is.

    Actually, if you compare the average UO PvPer who exclusively (or primarily) PvPs to the average PvEer to the average Crafter, you'd probably find more truth in your comparison than that of the original poster.

    While PvP might be Chocolate to the PvPers, it probably tastes like Octopus to the Crafters.

    While RP might be Strawberry to RPers, to PvPers, it probably tastes like Giraffe Feces.

    It's not that UO has "common flavors of ice cream," it's that UO offers a variety of flavors to people who may like a few, some, or all of them, but tends to dislike the flavors they don't like.

    Of course, I have a few friends who love vanilla ice cream and can't stand the taste of chocolate, and at least one friend who wouldn't touch vanilla ice cream if you paid him too -- he also uses nothing but ketchup on his chicken nuggets, and has a food palette that consists of cheese pizza, plain hot dogs, plain HAMburgers (ie: no cheese), and the occasional steak in addition to the nuggets.

    People like what people like. Sometimes people will try new things, but no matter how many times I tell people that unagi is delicious, when I tell them it's eel, they turn their noses up and run away as quickly as possible.

    **points to Raptor's post**

    Now I may be city gal but I lived in Wisconsin, the dairy state for about 14 yrs.

    I have never seen any dairy cows, give us chocolate milk.

    Nay milk from moo-cows is well milk and can be creamed.

    Cream is kinda like the hue of vanilla ice cream, white.

    Ya can't make ice cream without CREAM.

    So I see our world as the original cream.

    One can make 'any flavors' of ice cream one prefers,
    if ya got the base ingredient, of cream.

    Last night I had a waffle cone
    with my leftover from Dec.,
    Candy Cane Ice Cream. :)

    Probably why some of us still pay to play UO,
    we can be whatever we wanna be, wherever land mass, in whatever flavors,
    one can create out of this sandbox of UO dairy cream. :)

    And ya always gonna have some people wanting 'only' chocolate, or vanilla,
    or strawberry, or butterscotch brickle, and now and then some few peculiar sorta folks wantin'.........Frozen YOGURT ! :)

    Meh they probably play gargoyles or wolves with fleas, or something.

    And then....ya will have USA based folks argue
    that the best ice cream comes from dairy cows only from:
    New York state, California state or the no brainer, WISCONSIN DAIRY COWS.

    Even the cows have tv commercials ... vote for me vote for me
    as the best dairy cow in the world/nation etc.

    So even the cows, [have to agree to disagree],
    on who's creamed up playstyle, makes the better multi flavored flavors,
    of ice creams, milks and cheeses !

    Then ya got them angry protesting, rioting *dairy* cows, saying
    'eatz more chickenz !!! tellin us all to go eat at, a chicken fast food joint.'
    They are not even BEEF cows yet rioting protestors, tellin us to eat chicken.

    I once had a huge brama bull with them big horns on his head,
    in my front yard, from a neighbor's farm in Wisconsin, & he was lookin in my front windows, posing head down horns shining, hoof stompin in my lawn,
    as if via body language he was saying...

    Cmon city gal...
    GO AHEAD MAKE MY DAY ! He scared me ! :)
    He seemed to have his OWN agenda and play style !


    :) **AND ALL THIS DEEP THOUGHT EVEN, BEFORE, I FINISHED MY MORNING CUPPA COFFEE**
