    I'm feeling it might be a good thing if we were to call it the Great Crash of 2016, or GC2016, to help remind us of what's been lost and when. With my bad memory I need every little help I can have to remind me of things like this. And if Murphy at some future date decides to throw some more spanners at the server it would save us from having to relabel the event...

    So who or what would you choose? This being EGS, and me having knowledge the interviewee almost certainly doesn't have, I think I'd choose to be an Immortal.

    It's actually the Mandela Effect. Thanks to the LHC, those forum threads now never existed.

    You go a few centuries without dying and before you know it, EVERYONE is blaming you whenever something goes ka-boom.

    We have Pandors's own words on this one. "This wasn't part of some master plan. I impulsively used my vast power to do something nice without thinking it through." And she was musing to herself, not talking to anyone else, so there's no reason to think she's lying. So, she did Mark Tedd deliberately, but it was a spur-of-the-moment thing. By the way, I see this was your first post. Welcome to the forums! :-)

    I feel this is obligatory. Hopefully at least some folks here know where it's from.

    I feel the "documented" part is very important

    Story Monday August 1, 2016

    ... unless his help was important enough that if he would be born 40 years later it would be under Third Empire. Or with radiation poisoning. ... I have better idea. Let's visit him in 1951 and take him to 1961. That shouldn't make any negative change in history.

    *puts on vet/biologist hat* A parasite is something which feeds off of or takes resources from another (generally larger) host creature, to the detriment of the host and the benefit of the parasite. The classic form is endoparasites, such as tapeworms that live in the intestines and feed off of the host's bloodstream, but the term can also encompass stealing resources another creature has gathered or depositing eggs in another bird's nest so that the other bird will expend resources on raising the parasitic young instead of their own. Mosquitoes are parasites -- they take blood, and the host does not benefit in any known way from the relationship. They're not predators because they don't kill the host (at least not directly, the diseases they can carry are another matter). The plants do no harm to the sun, therefore they are not parasites. *takes off vet/biologist hat, tries to fix bad case of hat-hair*

    Story: Monday, August 8, 2016

    I think you meant to link to this comic. I don't think Magic can do "anything." Best analogy might be a mosquito or biting fly. A horse is a lot bigger and stronger than a biting fly, but they can't see them well enough and move fast enough to bite them, and they may not be able to swat the fly hard enough with their tail to kill it. They can't invent a tiny cannon capable of shooting down just that one fly, nor can they build a box and lure the fly inside -- they are limited in what they can do. But a lot of animals will deal with one persistent biting fly by rolling in mud, thus caking their skin and blocking not only that one individual insect but also all the other flies, mosqutoes, gnats, etc. in the area. The system change is going from bare furred flesh they can get to easily, to mud-caked skin the insects have a hard time finding a way to get through. I'm sure if enough critters stayed caked in mud long enough, so that it became the usual, then the insects would evolve ways to deal with the change; likewise, humans will eventually figure out how a new magic system works, but in the short term, they'll be at a severe disadvantage compared to now.
