    Look, just because some computer lied to you about a cake once doesn't mean all cakes are lies.
  3. This Day In History

    I dunno. They could maybe have invaded in absentia? He was an incredible asshat. Fortunately his shenanigans were exposed by a newspaperman named Samuel Clemens.
  4. This Day In History

    21 July 356 BC – The Second Temple of Artemis in Ephesus is destroyed by Herostratus in a desperate act to gain Herostratic fame through arson. Ephesus sentenced Herostratus to death and forbade anyone to mention the name, Herostratus. However, historian Theopompus would record the name Herostratus so that everyone would know that when the Second Temple of Artemis at Ephesus was destroyed about the time Alexander the Great was born, it was because of an arsonist named Herostratus. 1545 – The first landing of French troops on the coast of the Isle of Wight during the French invasion of the Isle of Wight. Because without French troops landing on the Isle of Wight, there really wouldn't be a French invasion of the Isle of Wight. 1816 – Birth of Paul Reuter, German-English journalist, founded Reuters. Someone should figure out a way to get this news out to the whole world. 1831 – Inauguration of Leopold I of Belgium, first king of the Belgians. I waffled on whether or not to include this. 1865 – In the market square of Springfield, Missouri, Wild Bill Hickok shoots and kills Davis Tutt in what is regarded as the first western showdown. So any "Western" you might encounter that features a "Showdown" before the end of the US Civil War is historically inaccurate. 1873 – At Adair, Iowa, Jesse James and the James–Younger Gang pull off the first successful train robbery in the American Old West. So any "Western" you might encounter that features a "Train Robbery" before Ulysses Grant's second term as President of the US is historically inaccurate. Sometimes it seems like most of the "Westerns" I've encountered have been historically inaccurate. 1904 – Louis Rigolly, a Frenchman, becomes the first man to break the 100 mph (161 km/h) barrier on land. He drove a 15-liter Gobron-Brillié in Ostend, Belgium. As a way to celebrate a country's national day, it is at least as practical as bombs bursting in air. 1919 – The dirigible Wingfoot Air Express crashes into the Illinois Trust and Savings Building in Chicago, killing 12 people. Apparently this wasn't a big enough crash to end commercial airship travel. 1925 – Scopes Trial: In Dayton, Tennessee, high school biology teacher John T. Scopes is found guilty of teaching evolution in class and fined $100. When will teachers learn that politicians answering to the loudest voices in the electorate know how to instruct youth better than professional educators? 1925 – Malcolm Campbell becomes the first man to exceed 150 mph (241 km/h) on land. At Pendine Sands in Wales, he drives Sunbeam 350HP built by Sunbeam at a two-way average speed of 150.33 mph (242 km/h). Because you wouldn't expect the British to just sit by and let a Frenchman keep that record. 1954 – First Indochina War: The Geneva Conference partitions Vietnam into North Vietnam and South Vietnam. Problem solved. Nothing more to see here. 1970 – After 11 years of construction, the Aswan High Dam in Egypt is completed. Ramses gets his temple moved to keep his feet out of the water. But what about the rest of us? 1973 – In Lillehammer, Norway, Mossad agents kill a waiter whom they mistakenly thought was involved in the 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre. I know you may not believe this, but spilling your coffee does not make your waiter a terrorist. 2011 – The last flight of NASA's Space Shuttle program ends with the landing of Space Shuttle Atlantis on mission STS-135 at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. But this is only a temporary delay in the American Space Program because NASA is ready to go with... with... Uh, guys? I think you missed your cue.

  6. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Believe me, I get this with both halves of my brain. It's always worse when it's happening to yourself, of course.

    Would that be with a pole she can use to tip the bucket over from wayoverthere?
  8. NP Friday July 20, 2018

    I suspect Susan would approach the Ice Bucket Challenge the same way Sir Patrick Stewart did. It does make much more sense.
  9. Story Wednesday July 18, 2018

    Bah, fine. Sarah could be the only one who is able to violate the laws of physics in ways she cannot do in the real world. Satisfied? The opinion of physic professor notwithstanding, there ARE fundamental laws of universe even magic needs to follow. It's just that gravity as Einstein described it is not one of them. That might be related to the fact that muscle memory is not actually stored in muscles.

  11. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Oh, joy! Could be worse. My sister was on peritoneal dialysis for several months. If you put a bunch of specially-made fluid into a person's abdomen, then stuff diffuses across the membranes that line the inside of the abdomen, so that things which are higher concentration in the body than in the fluid will shift into the fluid, and vice versa. So, four times a day, she had to drain out the old fluid and put in a new bag's worth. Four times a day, every day. But, it meant she didn't have to go to a dialysis center three days a week and get hooked up to a machine for hours, and she didn't get the icky coming-down-with-the-flu feeling on Sunday night when she had to wait an extra day to clean out the built-up toxins. So, overall, peritoneal dialysis was far preferable to hemodialysis. Peritoneal is also cheaper, since once the catheter is installed into the abdomen, it mostly only costs the supplies. She was a poor student at the time, and when she told the insurance she was going to switch, they said, "Great, now you have to pay for your own supplies, that's policy!" So after some back and forth, she basically told them, "Fine, then I won't be able to switch, so you'll get to keep paying for hemodialysis three days a week instead!" Suddenly the insurance company decided they would pay for her supplies after all....
  12. This Day In History

    To be fair, Armstrong has always maintained that he said the "a" but it got lost in the static and transmission to Earth. I've heard stranger things happen with radio.

    Wouldn't that preclude flying combat?

  17. Story Wednesday July 18, 2018

    As for muscle memory, there are studies that show that athletes who sit and visualize their actions over and over get at least a measurable chunk of the improvement that compatriots get rehearsing the same moves physically. It might not be *all* that they'd need to do, but it would help! Especially if Sarah is the only one who can alter the "reality" of the simulation, and everyone else has to obey the laws of physics....

    Remember, Susan can use the Hammers against anyone now. Although I don't think it has been firmly established that she can use the hammers through the fairy doll. And another thing to bear in mind if before utilizing frosting as a safety net. - - - - - - The Cake Is A Lie. And even worse, What if someone left the cake out in the rain?
  19. NP Friday July 20, 2018

    We didn't start the fire.
  20. TheHeroesOfCRASH.com A filler featuring a Chris Van Allsburg-inspired project I'm working on. I think that the note on the side says most of what I have to say, but there's still room for some details. :-) A fellow artist suggested I self-publish my own 'zine of sorts, featuring comics and drawings outside of The Heroes Of C.R.A.S.H. Although I am working on a printed HoC comic, as well, this 'zine would be a bit cheaper, xeroxed and stapled by me, whereas the HoC comic collection I want to print will likely use a print-on-demand service. This 'zine would give me a chance to showcase some of my work outside my usual comic, and show off my range. Besides which, it's a nice brain stretch. I don't want to get too deep into my intentions with the art, because I want to leave some degree of ambiguity with the illustration. I will say that I wanted to draw a character that was less toony than my usual characters, but not entirely realistic either. I tried to channel a little Danielle Corsetto into this character (particularly with the shape of the chin), but somehow, I think I accidently channeled some Jeph Jacques instead - whose style, thankfully, is just as awesome. You can see both those artists' webcomics through my Links page! If you read the note on the side, you know that I've left an art prompt and a writing prompt for my fellow creatives: Either draw a different cartoon with the same caption, or draw a story to go with my drawing, using the caption as the first or last line. If you try out either prompt (or both!), please let me know!

    Luckily she's not bodyguard.
  22. NP Friday July 20, 2018

    Never changed, Nanase. Never changed. Also, ShellGrace is bad at being a bodyguard. "I, uh, nominate Susan and Professor George for the Ice Bucket Challenge."

    One can't put out that fire.

    If she wasn't hot before, she is now. She was.

    Only because Susan lied* about it so that Justin could stay overnight. *At least at the time, she thought she was lying. Yes, exactly. Funny story
