  1. Past hour
  2. Can I still use it to end the universe if I use it carefully?
  3. Perhaps they might have covered a question I've had for some time? Just how many ways are there to skin a cat?
  4. Today
  5. I hear you. I would have a whole room full of 1:18 scale die-cast IndyCar and Formula One cars if I could afford them. I've already got three wall cases of smaller 1:36 Kinsmart replica cars (and a "parking lot" of them waiting for more cases) that are much more detailed than any of the Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars I had as a kid. Good thing they're under $10 at CVS. If they were any more expensive, Mrs. Prof would try and run me over with them.
  6. Both. But it only got restarted because Doc located the Primeval Paintball.
  7. This is so incredibly common, especially amongst fanboys/girls. I once came within a hair's breadth of sinking about half a thousand dollars I could ill spare into a replica of Sting, Bilbo's old sword which he passed on to Frodo. And a blogger I was rather fond of fell completely in love with a ridiculous helmet from the Final Fantasy series. I mean, at least that British acquaintance of mine I met years ago who had reproductions of every Doctor Who outfit existing at the time had some clothes to wear!
  8. The Downton Abbey marathon is interrupted periodically by pledge breaks. One of the gifts for larger pledge amounts is a set of DVDs which come with a signal pull bell, just like the ones the Family use to summon the Staff from their basement lair on the show. What's most amusing is my own reaction, in that I find myself sorely tempted. I can picture hooking it up to the doorbell, or with a wireless remote, or even running a cord from my bedroom to the kitchen or living room, just to be able to show it off to guests. Totally useless, yet fun to imagine uses for!

    Charlotte does have manners and speech patterns that could fit an android quite well.
  10. Anyone know a good way to fake your location?
  11. Well, I did say most boyfriends.... I bought it from the Disney World gift shop after discovering I'd forgotten to pack anything to sleep in, and it was definitely labeled as either a "sleep shirt" or "nightie," I forget which. This is the same company from which I have since purchased both shackles (from the Pirates of the Carribean ride's gift shop) and "Imperial Binders" (from the Star Wars gift shop), so they are either kinkier than they let on, or more oblivious/naïve than a megacorp has any right to be. ;-)
  12. theheroesofcrash.comWho could this shadowy figure be...?! The answer will SHOCK you! Okay, it actually probably WON'T shock you if you read my comic. But a villain of this caliber deserves a dramatic introduction. I'm proudest of that panel in the lower left. I like BB's punched expression and the blurry fist. Just altogether a good, toony image. Just reminding you that my Fan Art contest is still going on, and EVERYONE who enters gets a prize! There's even an easy-peasy category for people to submit game avatars based on my characters! What are you waiting for? Enter my contest! You can also click on the button on my main page for the full rules.
  13. I found some videos on YouTube about homemade alcohol stoves made from soda cans, and have tried out a couple of the designs. I have now bought some Liquid Heet alcohol to try them out with, and need to figure out where and when to test them. I find that I'm now lookign at every empty can as potentially useful. ;-) I've also been learning about eclampsia and antiseizure medications (see the What Are You Watching thread), and did a webinar on cat skin diseases which was quite educational.
  14. Been watching a Downton Abbey marathon on PBS, interrupted as necessary by work and sleep. They just showed the episode where Sybil died. (It's been years, I think I'm allowed to discuss that much!) It inspired me to look up what I'd have used to treat seizures, and see what was available back then. The episode is set in 1920, and the most effective treatment for severe seizure, IV diazepam, wasn't released until 1963! The other standard for seizures, phenobarbital, was on the market by 1912, but it was only known as a sedative, not an anti-seizure medication. The doctor who discovered its anti-seizure properties was, unfortunately, a Jewish doctor in Germany (he eventually went from University Chair to Dachau concentration camp before escaping to America) and the journal he published his findings in was in German; World War I disrupted communication and further slowed the spread of this life-saving information. Apparently about all they would have had for seizures at that time would have been bromide, which has a lot of side effects, or paraldehyde, which has been used for seizures since 1882 and is still used, in some circumstances, to this day, or magnesium sulfate, which I'm not really familiar with but was apparently at least known in that era, but one source says it was another decade before it saw routine use for eclampsia. I can only assume that if Sybil had been taken to the hospital, such drugs would have been an option, but the fact that she gave birth at home would limit them to whatever the doctors had in their bags. The death scene also reminded me of when a coworker had grand mal seizure at work, with strong enough muscle contractions that her diaphragm couldn't move properly and she wasn't breathing for a short time. (People use to think epileptics stopped breathing from swallowing their tongue or the like, but that's just not true and messing with someone's mouth at a time like that is a good way to get your fingers bitten.) My friend's breathing resumed as her seizure eased, but I can really appreciate how well they portrayed Sybil's unrelenting seizure and the way she basically suffocated to death from it! It does seem that they should have shown more concern for Mary when she was pregnant, as one of the major risk factors for eclampsia is having a close relative, like a sister, who's had it. It should have frightened everyone, especially Mary and her husband! Getting off the medical tragedy, it's been fun seeing some of the early episodes, especially the first couple last night. I've caught the odd episode frequently and have seen a few several times, but I don't think I've seen the first few since my first viewing. It's also wonderful to see so many strong women characters, something TV and movies are still so sadly short of most times, and the writing is excellent. :-)

    Depends on how much alternate the reality is. The reality of game IS alternate to the reality where you play it (from). Not close alternate, but still ...
  16. np

    In Susan's case, we only have her being portrayed as one, not really sure how an alternate Susan could be an android though it might be tied to Star Trek somehow. No idea how Charlotte would have an alternate version of her that's an android. Another possibility is this alternate reality has them playing a game together where one of them picks an android character.
  17. np

    Right. That's why it could be Grace. I wasn't sure about her, as it would make more sense with Susan and Charlotte Edit: Elliot though she's robot.
  18. np

    Yeah. Anyway diverting back to the commentary and the next NP story, Dan states that it will feature a strange alternate universe scenario. Unfortunately, despite it being a week from April 1st, this likely wont be a return to the AF04 crew, especially considering Dan said it will involve just Grace, Susan and Charlotte, and the fact that one of them will be an android, though I wouldn't be opposed to referring to this as the AF17 universe.;) As to who would be the android... I'm thinking Grace, mainly due to the fact the Susan once thought Grace was an android, this would be an opportunity to do a callback to that and say that there is a universe where Tedd did build himself and android girlfriend.
  19. I've contemplated (particularly a few years ago when a certain series of books and shows were popular) getting a shirt with Tinkerbell on it. Either scolding, or laughing her arse off. Alongside the words "Real Sparkles Don't Vampire".
  20. Oh. Didn't noticed. Thanks. Is youtube-dl blocked as well? EDIT: probably yes. The girl is Filia Ul Copt if not even that can be found from that video.
  21. There's a "share" link for posting the video on social media and such with a "start at" option to set the time, usually set it a few seconds before the intended moment though. Also Canada's blocked by funimation.

    Going back to the ECO game I mentioned before, it kinda has a Majora's Mask twist in that there's a meteor that will hit the world you're in after 30 real days (game time passes more like minecraft so a game day is 20 minutes or so) So basically the goal of the game is to manage resources while learn new skills and technologies and try progress as far as possible before the end of the world. Some people I've seen play mention trying to build a bunker underground to try to survive the impact, but I dunno if it's actually possible. Bunker? What about technology to divert the meteor or colonize other planets? EDIT: Actually, the wiki for ECO mentions meteor is supposed to be prevented by technology.
  23. Not sure if that's an actual cape, it appears to be part of that person's body. Exactly. But it LOOKS like one ... There is similar girl here (14:08 ... how can you make those links which send you in middle of video?) Ups. Fixed.

    Even in non-open world, the urgent quests rarely end up being as urgent as presented. Game designers rarely dare to actually put player on timeout. Although ... maybe it would be nice idea to have a game where the main goal is to defeat the force of Winter and you could spend lot of time farming and developing but after several years of game time you would notice that the winters are colder and colder ... Board games are usually considerably less open than computer games, yes ...
  26. Depends on what you're looking for. They're all over YouTube. Go to my website for links: https://dleejackson.lbjackson.com/music/ If you're looking for MP3s, OGGs, or FLACs, hmm. I'm not exactly sure where you'd be able to get all of them. Some of them are going to be available shortly after April, I hope.
