comment If I polymorph myself using a wand, does my inventory change too?
Specifically, you usually want to be a xorn to eat rings, and they are big enough to break your body armor/shirt/cloak. (Rock mole will just shrink out of the armor, but is a much less desirable form since you won't be able to hold those rings and wands you didn't want to drop because your carrying capacity will be next to nothing.

comment In Nethack, how exactly do containers stack?
You can grease your BoH itself to protect the contents from water. (Of course, this won't protect it from being cursed, but I usually don't bother nesting it for that. Then again, I'm usually wielding Magicbane when I'm likely to have curse items cast at me, because I play way too many wizards)

Pretty sure OP was referring to wrapped candies as "candy bombs".

comment Nethack: Revive My Old Corpse?
@DoktoroReichard: not true; the PC's corpse is found in the pile of his belongings under his ghost, although it may completely rot away before you reach it.

comment Why did this explosion make me fat? (A land mine increased my weight)
You're reading the wrong wiki article; you want to follow the link to nethackwiki.com/wiki/Trap#.5E_Land_mine to learn about the trap, as opposed to the item that can be applied to make the trap.

comment How can I kill myself in Nethack?
As far as I can tell, the "You must relearn your lessons!" punishment won't kill you in vanilla, either; it's not an NAO patch. On both, if you're already level 1, you lose maxhp but don't die.

comment Can I stop Nethack from generating or loading bones files on Linux?
Building NAOhack for a machine that's not configured exactly like NAO is, unfortunately, non-trivial. As far as I can tell the patch that adds the bones option is also not available separately on bilious, although I could just be having trouble with the search interface.

comment How can I swallow a whole cockatrice?
Using a t seems to work flawlessly; attempting to get a purple worm lifesaved on the bite attack then proceed to the engulf attack was my first thought, which failed horribly. Now... to try to set myself up with a polykit in the devnull tournament so I can get this unique death :)
