Now I can finally realize my dream of a real-time GURPS campaign, where you roll on every single action.
"Okay, I step forward."
"Success. You move one hex."
"I step forward again."
"Success. You move another hex."
"I take another step."
"Oh, critical failure! You actually trip and fall backwards one hex!"
"I'm going to kill the GM."
"Failure. You do no damage."
"No, that wasn't an action, I really am going to come across the table and kill you."

I used to work at a print shop. We offered document services like graphic design in addition to our standard "photocopy bind laminate" stuff. Our owner billed herself as a great graphic designer, but I'll be damned if she didn't use Comic Sans in every design. Even people who said "Yeah, can you use Times please?" would get Comic Sans, often dark green on a pink background. I once did something for a client which everyone thought was pretty damn good, and she went in a changed the colors and font to some horrible mix of pastels and Comic Sans. Then she told the client that I'd done it, and he asked her to redo it so it "wasn't so terrible."

This system will self-destruct in five minutes.
