    Update 8/11/22 Saturday: Things have taken a backward step, as it were. I did a good deal of walking Thursday as a catch up for Wednesday's lack of a workout due to monstrous nausea overnight the previous night. When the time came to take a shower, we noticed two things: large blood blisters on the sides of both big toes, and increased edema on the left leg. My nurse called the Wound Care nurse. By the time she got there, the blood blister on the left toe had broken open. She put an alginate bandage on it and a Curlex wrap around it, then wrapped the left foot and leg in an ACE bandage. She then wrapped the right leg and foot in a double layer wrap of ACE bandages to protect the blister and compress the swollen leg. The ACE bandages are going to have to stay on all weekend, until the Wound Care nurse gets back on Monday. I'm supposed to reduce the amount of walking I do and keep the leg elevated, which means these updates are going to come few and far between. I'm sincerely hoping that my next stop isn't a stop isn't a stop upstairs in the LTAC to get hooked back up to another Bumex 24/7 IV diuretic drip again. We'll see what happens.

    Thus the mysterious stranger announces a challenge in the hall and four heroic fools answer. Of course this is an attempt by George to make awkward inquiries of Ellen without her noticing

  9. Other Random Comics

    Pepper&Carrot updated for the first time this year - but it's 8 comic-book pages of high quality art (which is about normal for that comic, both in update size and update frequency).
  10. Comic for Friday, August 12, 2022

    “Try to rule”, along with the concern that they would be relied upon for magic if the others (nonhuman, if the four-fingered hand is significant) were unable to use it on this side, sounds to me like a sarcastic reference to that one being ostensibly “Royalty”, in the royal-means-archmage sense rather than the royal-means-reigning-dynasty sense.

    Points for 'Staff meeting'!
  13. Comic for Friday, August 12, 2022

    Even on the run, they stop for a meeting. They produce a staff. They find they have access to magic. This proves something modern buisnesses have forgotten. Staff meetings are magical. Even without donuts. . . . . As for Stooges status? Let's see if any of them are Moe-like. Or do we have three Shemps?
  14. Comic for Friday, August 12, 2022 Ominous. It appears that Ijuin was right, these trespassers are the ones Liam was trying to get through the portal. "Try to rule" might mean nefarious purposes on this side? I don't see Andrea and Tara being in on it if that is the case. Commentary says there are three trespassers. The conversation initially looked like two, but looking again, there were three styles of speech bubbles. For now, they are 'The Three Stooges' until proven otherwise.

    Not to worry, Ellen. New editions of games always streamline character creation and simplify game mechanics to make an easier and more intuitive play experience for rookie and veteran players alike
  17. NP Comic for Thursday, August 11, 2022 No, Ellen, as mistakes go, this is a minor one. Worst case, Rich goes home pissed off, and for him, that's not such a stretch either way, so small consequences. But if you really feel that way, you could always beam him.
  18. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    I was accepted to the Rehab hospital. I've been doing lots of physical and occupational therapy in the days since my admission last Friday. Was doing good until today. Had a very rough night last night - food poisoning or stomach bug, call it what you will, I was nauseated as hell for several hours and wound up tossing my dinner. Only caught a few hours sleep, and woke up in no shape to do anything, much less work out. Add to it the fact that I'd tweaked my left knee the day before, and I was one sore puppy. Therapy went predictably well. In other words, badly. I pushed myself as far as I could, but I just couldn't complete a full course of a normal workout. The therapists had mercy upon me and walked me to my room. I've slept most of the rest of the day until being woke up by the nurse to take meds, at which point I got up and typed this. Now you're up to date.
  19. Sad news

    I find it sad that so many of the people I held in esteem are passing at an increasing rate, a reflection of my own mortality. This, exacerbated by how many of them are unknown to the current generation, and how little the current stars mean to me, not all, but many of them.
  20. Video Game Discussion 5

    Hold on to your tentacles... It's Inkopolis News time! Check it! Here is the current news updates from the Squid Research Lab! Two new movement options exist: the Squid Surge, to rapidly swim up walls in a burst, and the Squid Roll to jump out of ink while rapidly turning around, deflecting enemy ink briefly. New stages include: Scorch Gorge, Eeltail Alley, Mincemeat Metalworks, Undertow Spillway, and Hagglefish Market Returning stages include: Museum d'Alfonsino, Hammerhead Bridge, Mahi-Mahi Resort, Inkblot Art Academy, Sturgeon Shipyard, Makomart, and Wahoo World. Post-launch stages include the surprising return of Flounder Heights from Splatoon 1 and a new stage that we don't know the name of yet that seems to be Egypt-inspired. As for weapons, all the base weapons from before will return. New weapon types include the Stringers, which are based on bows, and the Splatana, which are kinda sword-like. The ones of each we know about are the Tri-Stringer, which fires three shots horizontally on the ground and vertically in the air and appears to be based on a fishing rod, and the Splatana Wiper, which fires slashes of ink like a sword beam and is based on a windshield wiper. Some new specials are the Tacticooler, which gives four power-ups that give buffs, like a speed boost; the Wave Breaker, which sends shockwaves along the ground the damage foes and track foes hit by them; and the Reefslider, a ridable mount that carries you forwards before exploding. Then there's also the Triple Inkstrike and Crab Tank. Returning specials include the Tenta Missiles, Inkjet, Ink Storm, Ultra Stamp, and Booyah Bomb. Back in the main hub, we have Ammo Knights, the weapon shop, stocked by Sheldon as usual. His currency is Sheldon Licenses, which are obtained by leveling up in battle and consistently using the same weapon. You can buy weapons you don't have the level for just yet, but it's more expensive. For fashion stores, we have Naut Couture, the hat shop, staffed by a nautilus named Gnarly Eddy and his snail friend Nails; Man-o'-Wardrobe, the clothing store, selling shirts and jackets, staffed by Jel La Fleur, a fashion-minded jellyfish; and Crush Station, the shoe store, owned by a large crustacean named Mr. Coco. Clothing have abilities that help you in battle, as usual. A new one, Intensify Action, improves the Squid Roll and Squid Surge moves. Don't like the abilities on your gear? Talk to Murch, who returns from Splatoon 2 but is noticeably older, and he can swap abilities for you. Save your entire outfit/weapon kit. 5 presets are seen, but there might be more. Ranked Battle is now called Anarchy Battle, which appear to be pretty much the same. There's a noticeable difference to Rainmaker, though, in that there are "checkpoint" pedestals, so you don't have to take the Rainmaker as far if you lose it. The practice area is also changed. You can go into training while waiting for a match. Ghosts of your allies can be interacted, so you can interact with them to a point or even invite them to join a battle. You can also view replays of battles and share them. Customization is also a thing. There are viewable lockers that you can customize with stuff. Have fun decorating your space. There's a new store called Hotlantis, run by an artist named Harmony who used to be a regular customer. The store owner vanishes quite often. Hotlantis is where you get customization options. Players also have banners that can be customized, and even their victory emotes can be customized. These can be unlocked at Hotlantis. Customization catalogues are released every three months for the first two years of the game's release. Who wants to play cards? There's a turf war imitation card game called Table Turf Battle! Cards have tiles of turf to cover the play field. A 1v1 competitive spin-off of Turf Wars. Salmon Run: Next Wave. Salmon Run is mostly the same, but with a few new Boss Salmonids added in. The Slammin' Lid is a UFO-type thing that creates a barrier that protects Salmonids underneath and tries to crush anyone that goes underneath. The Big Shot has basically a mortar launcher whose shots create shockwaves similar to the Wave Breaker special. After you clear the mode, you could get an emergency that a new King Salmonid appears. A giant Boss Salmonid that appears after you've cleared the final wave. You can launch Golden Eggs at him to hurt him, but remember that this mode is under a time limit. There's even a mode called Big Run where Salmonids can invade regular multiplayer stages. Single Player mode is called Return of the Mammalians. You play as Agent 3 (or a new Inkling with that number, at any rate) and their mini Salmonid companion called Small Fry battling the Octarians once again, but this time the Octarians are covered in hair...for...some reason. Use it to learn how to use weapons and get some good practice in. In the hub, there's the Mailbox, which lets you make Miiverse-style messages that show up in the world. There's a concession stand where you can buy food and drinks that give you boosts to money or stuff. The Shoal returns, which allows for local connection with nearby friends. Photo Mode lets you take pictures that you can send to a smart device or put them in your locker. The Recon Guide lets you look around stages by yourself. Any stage, not just the ones in rotation, and you get a full hour to explore, instead of three-to-five minutes. Splatnet 3, a mobile app, lets you track statistics, get phone wallpapers, get gear you can't get in-game, and support Crusty Sean, a character from the previous two games, for unknown rewards. Available at launch. amiibo figures can be used once again. Save an outfit/weapon set to your amiibo to load it in as needed. Take a picture with the amiibo character. And get hyped for the Splatoon 3 amiibo: Inkling Girl, Octoling Girl, and Little Buddy. Post-launch stuff doesn't just include stages and catalogues, but also new weapons, X Battle (for high-ranked Anarchy Battle players), and League Battle (team Anarchy Battle modes) will be added for free, and a large-scale paid DLC will be added eventually. Meet the announcers: an Inkling named Frye, an Octoling named Shiver, and a manta ray named Big Man, form a group called Deep Cut. They serve as the news announcers. Players have Sea-Cucumber Phones, which lets them check the news while doing other things. No more being forced into the hub for stage rotation updates. Splatfests return! There's some changes, though. Splatfests now have three options! They're divided into two halves: first has typical 4v4 turf war rounds, but then they switch to 2v4v2 rounds where the team in the lead starts in the middle of the stage and is surrounded by two players each from the other teams. Yes, a tri-color Turf War! We also get the Splatfest World Premiere on August 27! Our choices are... Rock, Paper, or Scissors? (Frye questions why this is a thing before getting into it). Tune in on September 5 for the first Splatoon 3 tournament! No, in real life! The Splatoon 3 Enter the Splatlands Invitation 2022! Hosted in Seattle at PAX West, the top Splatoon 2 teams will duke it out in the Splatlands! Check it out! From Splatsville, that's a wrap. Catch ya later!

    Also has potential as comedy relief. "Did not serve while alive during WW II. Drafted after death. Performed admirably in sea duty prior to the invasion of Europe." I could see this being a thing on Black Adder.

    Security attracts attention, and until recently, official policy was to deny that such things even existed.
