I'm most definitely a launcher.  There are limits, of course; if there are 40 neat carts I'm not going to be that guy, but likewise, if there 40 chaotically good carts in the corral, I feel no need to be Elric of Melnibone.

Isn't "launching" (chaotic good) simply one way of "returning" (neutral good)?  And, if so, wouldn't a person who "launches" be both neutral good and chaotic good?  Is that even possible?

I think there is some overlap here such as when the corral is empty, where a launch isnt going to be any different than just gently putting it in the corral.

I do enjoy a good launch from time to time.

I'm with Stads. If the carts are neatly in the corral, I follow suit. If they aren't, its time to crash and burn!  :rollin

So...

What are you guys' feelings regarding people who TAKE shopping carts off property and NEVER return them to the corral?

Monsters or Heroes?
I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

The only time I launch is when I'm pissed because I see that someone else's time was too precious to even be a launcher.  :lol
No but seriously, I try not to do anything that will damage the cart or corral.


So...

What are you guys' feelings regarding people who TAKE shopping carts off property and NEVER return them to the corral?

Monsters or Heroes?

Well, I usually don't think about it too much because out of sight out of mind right?  But it is still a concern because of potential price increases inside the store.


So...

Monsters or Heroes?

Neither. They're thieves.

Yeah, that too.

That's a hard one to not spoil, Herrick. I'll attempt it.

In Moorcock's universe the two warring forces are Law and Chaos (rather than good and evil). Elric often finds himself sympathetic to the cause of Law and even attempts to further their goals on several occasions, but he can't resist his nature and always ends up bringing about more Chaos. Usually in a big way.

Anymore than that would probably spoil the stories.

Enjoy the books. They're fantastic!

Wow, dude, you did a great job with that.  I've been stewing on how to answer that for a while now, and you nailed it.   (I would only add that the patron of the line of lords of Melniboné is Arioch, a god of Chaos, making it more complicated.  He can call on Arioch to help him but he has great reservations about that. I'll leave it to you to find out more.)

I was lucky enough to have posted on a Michael Moorcock forum for a while; I wasn't a huge fan of the mod (he used that old-school "I'm the overlord here, it's my way or the highway!" mod style which is great for children, not so much for adults looking to talk sensibly about serious subjects), but Mr. Moorcock (I call him that out of respect, which I have an abundance of for him) himself posted frequently, and expansively.  I'm proud to say we had some very engaging conversations; at one point he asked for my address, and on more than one occasion, I would get an envelope in the mail with additional reading material related to our conversation. The forum shut down for a while due to Mr. Moorcock's health, but I understand he's doing well (or at least better) but the forum has not returned.

Went grocery shopping a few hours ago. Saw so many carts stacked up neatly in the corrals, it was wonderful, believe me, tremendous, you should've seen it and you know, lots of carts, so many carts, I always say - unbelievable.

Start another thread, though, if you like.  I'm all in to talk Elric for someone.  It's got a special place in my heart and it's rare to find people interested (or who have even HEARD of him, other than in the bastardizations and plagarizations that have happened over the years.  David Coverdale claims to not have heard of "Stormbringer" before offering the name to Deep Purple for their second album with him.   I call a resounding BILLSHOT! on that.  It's like an American claiming to not have heard of... I don't know...  maybe not Stephen King, but that next tier of writer.)
