Most unbelievable stretch of luck

In the last 4 days I have had 2 good commanders; a Captain (Odin) and an Admiral (adf asdf). They both had 8+ Gold Crosses. The Admiral actually had Gold Crosses for about a third of his 55 missions (19).

And that is where this stretch of unbelievable luck comes in. With adf asdf at about mission 17, I started getting Gold Crosses like crazy. I got maybe 9 or 10 in a row. It was good.

Unfortunately, both commanders are dead now. Odin perished in a Major Engagement (missile out of nowhere!) and adf asdf died in an Attack Starbase mission (no way out!! Both my escape pod and my ship were destroyed).

That's awfully good.

How do you pronouce 'asdf'?

Well, I had those good commanders and I guess I just felt like telling somebody. Pretty pointless, true...

I pronounce asdf as, well, "asdf". Ah-sdef. The e is near silent.

You should've called him qwerty. or maybe azerty if you have one of those wierd keyboards.
Again, this conversation is tumbeling into pointlessness.

Well, on the keyboard, the keys go like this:

q w e r t y u i o p [ ] \
.a s d f g h j k l ; ' (Enter)
..z x c v b n m , . / (Shift)

As you can see, on the second row, the first for keys are a, s, d, and f.

So I must have just put my hand on the second row and hit keys (since your thumb is mostly used for the spacebar).

You have a rat? I don't have a pet.

I had 2, but one died. So now I've got one.
Rats are cool, you can teach them to jump through burning hoops and such. But I wouldn't recommend it.
Yeah, pets are pretty cool.

I used to have fish but then I put in water that had too much (or little, I never really figured it out) salt or chemicals or something and they all died. Pity.

I have three treefrogs.

You have to take the chlorine out of water or it kills them. Same with fish.

Chlorine can burn out your eyes if it's not very dilute. That would be bad.

Especially for frogs they 'chew' with their eyes.
