    TOH, you are a wonderful moderator 99% of the time, which is an exceptional proportion, and we are far better off with you than without you. Adding a few helper moderators might reduce the burden on you, give someone to fill in during absences, and give you someone to nudge you on those rare occasions when you do over-react. I suspect truly replacing you would require several people and would be met with middling success at best. In other words, we need you, and we appreciate all you do for us!

    You see, this particular forum works in the following way. You take one or several frames from the EGS comic, possibly rearranging their order, and replace the text in the speech balloons with some sort of humorous meme or comment on life or the comic... ...why are you all looking at me like that?

    In an odd way, I was wrong about Van. He isn't there to contribute a viewpoint. He is there to contribute emotion. He can even do that without words, and he does it well. I'm glad.

    ...blowing a battlecruiser-size hole in Arthur's argument. it's kind of sad to say but a plan that depends on a group of people instinctively doing the right thing always ends with everybody dead, the dirigible in flames and at least one lost hat.

    Speculation time! I'm currently thinking that Tedd and Arthur are going to continue arguing for a time, then Van is going to speak up and say something neither of them would have thought to say which is enough to convince the Will of Magic. I'm going to further speculate that Magic doesn't really care about the moral and practical arguments Tedd and Arthur are making, and WoM will go with what Van said because Van made it sound more fun/dramatic that way.

    Nah, I'm not trying to refer to her in Japanese. "Mamase" is a perfectly good portmanteau word based on "Mama" and "Nanase", and it's clearly understood by most participants in this forum. We wouldn't refer to her as "haha" because we aren't laughing at her.

    But Magic isn't laying it's cards on the table. What are it's reasons for changing severely? It obviously has some or there would not be a need for the logic to be sufficient. What logic is preventing minimal change. Perhaps that would be a good question to ask. Both very good points. It does seems like Magic's lack of tact is about to push Tedd to some kind of breaking point. Perhaps instead of declaring she will reveal Magic, this will push her to become more passionate and share her experienced-based perspective; why having magic is so important to her. You know, Magic says it wants logic, but maybe it really just wants some drama. I am having trouble reconciling this entity calling for logical perspectives when in practice, it having a flair for the dramatic.

    Nevertheless. If you start developing an urge to bite people, don't wait. Head straight for the nearest PetSmart outlet and buy a doggie chew toy you can safely take any unwanted masticative desires out on. (It could have its upsides, though. If you do turn into a werewolf, CritterKeeper will finally be legally allowed to assist you. Part of the time, anyway.)

    EGS: Then, and Now

    I've really enjoyed watching Dan's growing knowledge and depth of understanding about sexuality, gender identity, and how complex everyone can be. As Dan has learned, so have we, and the world has changed so much in its understanding and acceptance. I especially love that Dan now incorporates not only all the in-betweens, but the idea that individuals can change and evolve. Whether you believe that people actually change or believe they learn more about how they've been all along, it's important to show that journey. Tedd's learning about gender fluidity, Sarah reassessing where she is on the Kinsey scale, Elliot being "gender-meh" now, Susan realizing that doing things with men doesn't appeal to her any more than doing things with women.... Hooray for diversity, and hooray for characters who aren't static.

    Like Father, like Daughter. She did say some new pieces of information, mainly information about human nature. Which is information that could be inferred from their previous statements or most listeners would already know, but Magic isn't good at subtlety and explicitly has a poor grasp of human nature. Tedd needed to make the implications explicit and correlate them with technology to explain why trying to keep magic hidden is a futile effort in the modern era.

    Well, if the Immortals on both sides have different rules, then it's likely the Immortals on the other side don't send energy to force a reset for rule violations on this side.

    This brought to mind the following scenario: A world where everybody has gotten used to magic changing regularly, and the Will of Magic never consults any Seers because the Second Purpose is common knowledge. Then one day when preparing for a new change, the Will of Magic finds a kid who happens to not have heard of the Second Purpose. The Will of Magic tells the child, "You are to help decide whether the rules of Magic shall be severely changed to keep it hidden, or if minimal changes shall be made to accommodate it's reveal." The child replies, "Huh? But everybody knows about magic." The Will of Magic still doesn't get it.

    Of course it wouldn't be that easy. Though all they've established is that it cannot be hidden, not whether or not it should be hidden. Most humans would figure that once you establish that a thing cannot be hidden, then whether or not it should be hidden is a moot point, but Magic doesn't think like most humans. It likely wouldn't care about having to reset continuously until the secrecy sticks, which could (and, most likely, would) be never. Maybe if the knowledge of the magic reset spreads to enough people that the reset does not meaningfully reduce the number of people that know about it, then Magic would be forced to abandon the secrecy notion regardless of what it or the seer's think. I doubt Magic is about to dismiss them. From a Watsonian perspective, Magic wants logic and perspective from the seers. It has deemed the logic it has been presented with so far to be insufficient for magic going public. To send them back now would prevent them from presenting more logic and perspective, especially if the reason the logic is insufficient is because Magic doesn't care about if it could remain secret, only if it should. The seers obviously want minimal changes (even though Arthur is reluctant in that regard), so why not let them present more logic? From a Doylist perspective, Tedd just won a significant victory by convincing Arthur that changing the rules to keep the secrecy is pointless. To have Magic declare their logic insufficient and boot them home without giving them a chance to supply more information would simple pull the rug out from under her. There a plenty of writers who would do that, but Dan isn't normally that mean to his characters.

    Well Edward was in charge of the paranormal division at the time, he'd likely have been filing the reports for himself, they're in a cabinet at the office buried among other files and Arthur probably hasn't gotten around to reading through them to the point where it's very tempting to turn this into an HHGTTG reference.

    This is actually a bit old, but my niece, Rosemary, built the robot before the new year and has started to play around with programming it. Given that it's based on the Arduino micro controller, which is what all the cool kids in home brew hardware use nowdays, she should get a good education from it. All in all I has a full happy about this.

    We just passed our AAHA inspection with flying colors! The American Animal Hospital Association has a vast collection of standards, and hospitals that are up to snuff can be Accredited. Every three years they come and inspect us and make sure we're doing things right. We know everything they're going to look at before they come, but it's still a little nervous-making, and a relief to be done and approved and not have to worry about it for three more years. :-D
