    Today I noticed that the vehicle in front of us was a Porsche SUV. Immediate thought: "Official street vehicle of the John Deere Formula-1 Racing Team?"

  4. Political Discussion Thread (READ FIRST POST)

    I've heard it claimed that, with regard to impeachment, the Democrats have cried wolf too many times, and that even if there were something to it this time, Republicans will not be inclined to listen, hence its dismissal as a purely partisan act. But that only works as an analogy if, in the story, each time the boy cried for help, there actually was a wolf, but the townspeople pretended there wasn't, because they just didn't like the boy and were hoping his sheep would get eaten. Or they feared what the wolf would do to them if they acknowledged it. Or they were, in fact, wolves themselves.

    In many cases, you can. On youtube. Like, the idea is that the fights are interesting by itself ... but, that may easily not be the case if there is too many of them. Also, switching from watching the movie to fighting and back makes harder to enjoy either, especially if done too often. (Also, the video tends to be more portable than the game.)

    WHAT? Are you implying that there are people who do not spend every waking moment relentlessly obsessing over the the marriage of strike plate and latch? Oh what a sad place this world has become If only I could close the door and secure it in such a way that no one outside could bother me

    There are a lot of video games that feel like scenes from an animated movie connected by a sequence of fights and your "Goal" for winning the fights is to see the movie If so, why don't I just watch the movie?
  9. Wild Speculation version 3.14159265...

    Was discussing Voltaire's plan on Discord and got thinking about how Voltaire hoped "Plan A" would result in changing Immortal Law with Elliot's death. I think a lot of us figured Tedd would wind up going "Lord Tedd" on everything and cause a system change or something, but then it hit me, Tedd wouldn't be the only one adversely affected by Elliot's death, Magus would have lost his only way out of limbo. That pendant that Voltaire left likely wasn't just left to implicate Pandora's involvement to Adrian, but had Elliot died to the bulldog dragon, that pendant could have made Magus believe that Pandora killed Elliot out of spite for not making Edward kill Abraham, and Magus had vowed to end Pandora after she had her tantrum, and would have already convinced Sirleck to help him by the time the dragon attacked Elliot, so it'd seem likely that Magus would lose it and have Sirleck sent vampires after Adrian regardless of which plan was in play.

  13. Story January 20, 2020

    The problem with that theory is that the last magic change was hundreds of years ago, and doorknobs like the one in question didn't appear before the late 1800s. Of course, Dan may not have done any research into the history of doorknobs. Yeah and that mirror is hundred year old tops, but Dan isn't really that good in research ... and as I mentioned, just because it's doorknob of quite modern door now doesn't mean it wasn't something else before. Note that the reasoning why it didn't worked at all is based on assumption that gathering energy is it's primary function, that it's supposed to drain energy every time it's not full. If it's sideefect, then it would be possible it was active and "observing" and just now started draining energy because ... well, that depends on what the primary function is, but basically because it noticed some reason to change status.

    Why should I let me be stopped from commenting by such detail like not knowing what's it about? Yeah, it would be nice if the attacks in videogames worked same in cutscenes, when you use them and when enemy use them. But, like, some authors balance incorrectly ... unless this is like Rhoda using up all magic collected during past years and will spend rest of the game not fully refreshed, she should be able to repeat the attack.
  16. Story January 20, 2020

    Note that the door were in different part of basement and quite likely out of range of most of Tedd's experiments. Wild speculation: Maybe Nioi's dimension-gate spell uses a lot of energy, and so the last time she was in the main EGS dimension she left a device to gather energy for when she or Kaoli returned. And maybe the reason Kaoli is late is because the device wasn't working properly until now... Wasn't working properly WHY? Inside Moperville's high magic area, gathering energy should be simple. Also, I think the whale would note about it if it was working. I consider more likely it didn't worked at all before the magic change. It's not like they did anything to it which could explain why it would suddenly start working. ... which is a pity, because if they did ... there is definitely one point in Moperville which would drain magic a lot - but Pandora clogged it.

  20. Story January 20, 2020

    So yeah, definitely leaning toward the "the doorknob is draining energy" hypothesis now. Perhaps someone wants to gather lots of magical energy to cast a spell, and figured that someone like Mr. Verres would be likely to have a lot of magic used at his place? (Of course that requires the person know about Mr. Verres job.) I also wonder how long that door has been in the basment, and whether it's been draining energy the whole time. Given that Tedd does most of her magical experiments down there, and she sees this as unusual, it seems unlikely this has been going on long, but it would be an interesting twist if Tedd has been unknowingly working under a handicap. ...On an unrelated note, I'm a bit confused by Justin's reaction here. I have a hard time reading it as anything but disappointment, but why would he be disappointed? Wild speculation: Maybe Nioi's dimension-gate spell uses a lot of energy, and so the last time she was in the main EGS dimension she left a device to gather energy for when she or Kaoli returned. And maybe the reason Kaoli is late is because the device wasn't working properly until now...

    I've decided to punt. Me and the cat are back in bed and I'm reading EGS from "New and Old Flames" on to current.
  22. Things That Are Just Annoying

    I've got at least three projects to be working on today but I can't seem to get going on any of them, and this is after taking 5mg of Adderall. I'm about to say "punt" and just go back to bed and read EGS from about 2010 to current.
  23. Things You Find Amusing

    My cat, Explorer, has spent most of this morning either on my WW2 American/UK tank book on my book shelf or in the window sill. More on the window sill than on the book, but enough on the book that I'm not putting it back in the normal book shelf slot for it, because she seems to like it on top of the smaller shelf. Any rate, she is bird watching and making the odd chittering sound every once and a while.
  24. Story January 20, 2020

    The doorknob that clicked so long ago without anyone in the basement noticing? (Especially Tedd?) If there is anything to that theory, I think it would be more likely the door itself consuming energy. It's bigger than a doorknob or a drumstick, after all. As to why, maybe building up power to open some sort of magical gateway to another dimension. Or to the PTTAOLUTASF. Or to the miraculously clean gas station restroom down the street from Salty Comics. Or Lavender's place. I guess it's too much to ask for Belldandy to come through that mirror...

    Modern batteries, in theory, don't have that as an issue. Not saying that wands are modern batteries, just saying that batteries don't have that problem most of the time.
  26. Story January 20, 2020

    Tedd has left the wand on the charger too often Now the battery is damaged and it can no longer hold much of a charge

    That depends on dietary preferences You will need to account for the ankles if you eat a lot of Sole Food
  29. Story January 20, 2020

    To be honest, I never thought of the wand being out of power. And as for what caused that, I'm sorta leaning towards the door knob, but am keeping an open mind as to other reasons.
