Friday Filler – What Does $2K in TSTO Donuts Look Like?

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

And, thank Grog that one of our readers gave me something to write about. Because I sure as heck had nothing good to write about as far as the “update” that didn’t happen…again.

Wednesday, when the update was SUPPOSED to happen, one of our disgruntled readers posted their displeasure about the lack of an update, including information about what they had invested in the game over the years he had been playing.

It rEAlly made me think…

Hey Addicts, Caption This!

Sometimes TSTO gives us humorous little moments when we capture our characters doing rather strange things.  These posts are all about those strange and funny moments!

When we can, we’ll be posting a Caption This! moment where we want you, the Addicts readers, to put on your writing caps and come up with what you think is happening in the screenshot. Post your captions in the comments below. We can’t wait to see how creative and funny you guys can be!

Hey Addicts… Caption This!

Super Safi’s Monday Morning Math Mayhem 23 – Smith Numbers

Morning Mathematical Monsters & Maniacs!

(Today’s post is sponsored by the letter “M”)

 

Hi, I’m Super Safi and you may remember me from such stats and strategy posts as Kwik-E-Mart Farming and the advanced losing-to-win Superheroes battle strategy.

Over the past 600+ episodes, The Simpsons has taken us on an amazing mathematical journey involving fractions, probability, Fermat’s last theorem, and hundreds of other aspects from the wonderful world off mathematics.

And what better way to start your week, then by discussing math Monday morning?

In honour of Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday October 14th, we go back to the first Thanksgiving episode of The Simpsons and look at Smith numbers.

Friday Filler – Navigating The News in TSTO and Life

Thank Grog It’s Firday!

Holyfreakinshirt! If I hear one more person quote another news source, other than THIS new source, I am going to lose it! ?And when I say “lose it,” I’m not talking about the “where’d I put my keys” kinda lose it.

Wait. What? There are different places you can go to get news about TSTO and the Simpsons?  Come on. Really? After all of this time, people actually go anyplace else than here to find out what’s going on?

This isn’t like the big debate over CNN or FOX, or any other traditional news sources (and no...I won’t go there).  It is about getting your TSTO news from any other source, than right here.  Why? Because Alissa cares!!

Wait. It’s not that I DON’T care…it’s just that Alissa cares, way, way, way more than I do. In fact, other than a couple of others who appear to have gone completely off the rails, (and yes, I am still just talking about TSTO) there is only one reliable, regular, obsessively up-to-date source of TSTO News around.

And no,  I’m not talking about John.

What better way to start the week of the 7th by looking at the number 7. Consider yourself in seventh heaven as we look at lucky number seven in this seventh year itch of the game (and don’t forget to come back as this post is available 24/seven).
