    Noted. (...Actually, looking at the usage guides on wiktionary, even replacing "transgendered" with "transgender" in my sentence wouldn't have fully corrected it; it probably should have been "transgender people" (minus the preceding "the" of course)...) (A bit of a heads up: it's likely I'll make similar mistakes in the future. I'm not very social, and this forum is pretty much the only community where I have a chance to talk about such things; as a result I'm a bit out of touch with the correct terminology. Please do continue to correct me, but try to be gentle. )

    For some reason, knowing that Kevin is Arthur's early work and that he seems to be leaning towards letting Ashley use Kevin for training fills me with joy.

    I have enjoyed a number of comics that center around activities I am not personally engaged in, such as paintball, or experiences I do not share. For some reason, I do tend to find video game digressions more annoying than most. In this case, I think it's just that I'd much rather spend time with the actual characters. However, if this sort of thing is enjoyable for Dan and helps him recharge, then I am not going to say he shouldn't do it! I'll just have to read along and hope I find some charm or interest in them.

    And turns out I might be right in this case: He's not distancing himself now, but whether he goes back to doing so or not remains to be seen, he doesn't seem to have any obligation to, but maybe old habits die hard?

    Had a pair of steroid injection procedures into my back last Friday at the hospital. One was into my lower right side of my back , while the other was into my sacroiliac joint (basically, my tailbone) on my left side. The latter was done to fix, believe it or not, a problem with my left leg. I couldn't lift it onto the threshold of a car in order to enter, or up onto a stool to dry it off after a shower. The pain was excruciating. After the procedure, half my butt was numb for a day (the left half, obviously). I gave it a test the next day. Carefully, I lifted my left leg and put my foot on a chair. No pain! None at all. Today marks four days since the procedure, and I still don't have any pain lifting my left leg. It's almost like I never had any pain there in the first place. The story with my right side is a bit different: just a tiny amount of relief. Still, I consider the left side relief a miracle.

    I'd bet on the fact that when Ellen says that Nanase would demolish half the state looking for her, she's barely exaggerating, and Arthur knows it. I don't know, but I hope it didn't bite them. Turning into a house every full moon sounds inconvenient.

    Susan, my probably autistic cat, loves ham. I can eat any thing else and she ignores me. Break out some cold ham slices on crackers and she is all over me. Because I'm soft, I give her a few tiny bits and she is the happiest I've seen a cat in a while.

    This Day In History

    It's really a pity that most people's knowledge of Helen Keller's life begins and ends with her childhood, because she was a remarkable woman! She was not the first deaf and blind person to learn to communicate; Charles Dickens had already written about Laura Bridgman's achievements there, which is what inspired her family to go beyond the home sign language they'd relied on until that point. But she was the first deaf-blind person to earn a bachelor's degree, from Radcliffe College in Harvard University, and went on to become a world-renowned author, public speaker, and activist. She campaigned for women's rights and suffrage, labor rights, and socialism, as well as advocating for the disabled. She was one of the founders of the American Civil Liberties Union. She was not a communist but a member of the Socialist Party. When she advocate dfor the disabled, she spoke openly about the link between poverty and disability, such as poor factory conditions and diet, as well as women forced into prostitution contracting syphilis, then a leading cause of blindness. She realized just how lucky she had been to be deaf and blind in a family who could afford to hire specialist teachers and send her to special schools, and fought to help others with disabilities who did not have access to such advantages. She also carried out a secret love affair, and engagement, and almost eloped. She enjoyed music through feeling its vibrations. She traveled to dozens of countries and was friends with fellow radical Mark Twain. She outlived not only her teacher and companion Anne Sullivan, but her successor Polly Thomson, and her ashes were placed next to theirs in the National Cathedral. She was not perfect; she was a follower of Swedenborg and a supporter of eugenics. We tend to picture her in a Victorian or Edwardian setting, but she didn't pass away until 1968! "The few own the many because they possess the means of livelihood of all ... The country is governed for the richest, for the corporations, the bankers, the land speculators, and for the exploiters of labor. The majority of mankind are working people. So long as their fair demands—the ownership and control of their livelihoods—are set at naught, we can have neither men's rights nor women's rights. The majority of mankind is ground down by industrial oppression in order that the small remnant may live in ease." — Helen Keller, 1911

    Sometimes too might tact is a bad thing. Speaking of Grace one of the things I like about her is she has a big, treat other people how you would want to be treated, mindset. If she sees someone in pain. I also like that her bluntness and lower social inhibitions make it easier for them to step forward to help than people who act 'sensitively' and tactfully ignore somebody's distress. While it’s clear that Grace has these aspects because she was sheltered, and not because she’s on the spectrum. It’s something that I as someone with Asperger’s can relate to. I hope it’s ok that I talked about how I relate to Grace on a personal level like that. It’s weird, she’s not even my favorite character.

    The jokes about Arthur always seeing Tedd in girl form notwithstanding, there is no chance that Arthur might not become aware of Tedd having and using boy form. Hiding this information from him is technically part of not outing Tedd, however it will be short-lived and would mean missing opportunity to control how Arthur finds out Tedd has boy form. The preferred option here might be insisting Tedd is boy. At worst case, Elliot and Ellen might seem stupid and/or rude to Tedd, but there is reasonable chance Arthur will get the point that Tedd being girl is not public, while being completely in sync with not outing Tedd to Ashley. (Why it seems perfectly normal to me to use "girl" for 18 year old female but weird to use "boy" for 18 year old male?) Not true. Sure, if it's bigotry, Arthur could yell all day, but if it's ignorance, Arthur is in position to cause Edward think, because unlike Tedd he's adult and authority figure. (Wait ... he's adult or he's an adult?)

    Of course, this page might point to Tedd being ready to come out, at least to her father ... but Elliot and Ellen doesn't know that. It's hard to say ... most gender-fluid people can't get into situations similar to Tedd's ... It's entirely possible Arthur has already figured out Tedd's gender-fluidity and is merely being respectful. (It's also possible that he has no clue, and his referring to Tedd as female in front of Mr. Verres will have no more consequences than Mr. Verres "correcting" him.) The problem comes if he's curious and decides to investigate the matter in such a manner that Mr. Verres becomes aware that there's more to Tedd's female transformations than Mr. Verres realized, or if he otherwise accidentally outs Tedd to Mr. Verres due to his lack of understanding of the situation (and Mr. Verres doesn't take it well). Logically, the best option would be to ensure Arthur is aware of the need of secrecy without giving him more informations than he already has. Except I would have no idea how to do it. Even just saying he's not out implies there is something to be out of ... ... and "hoping for best" is not really excuse, nor is pretending that harm resulting from your inaction is less harming than harm resulting from your action. ... Wait. There is additional issue here. ARTHUR has more information, but Ashley doesn't and explaining anything to Arthur would out Tedd to Ashley. Damn this is minefield ... and Elliot and Ellen are even worse equipped to deal with it than we are.

    I don't know, when Diane was eager to watch a movie because it had griffins in it, Lucy had a dismissive attitude, but I do concede that the avatar she used during her chat with Diane lends credence to your theory. Both Diane and Lucy are actually huge nerds, but they hide it even from themselves, even more so from each other.

    Classic. I remember reading Feynman's autobiography where he among other things described his work at Los Alamos. At one point, to his utter astonishment, he received a private visit from Nobel prize winning physicist Niels Bohr and his son, acting as interpreter. Turned out that Bohr had noticed that where everyone else nodded in awe at every pronunciation from him, this young sprat scowled and seemed to worry at his ideas. So he discussed them with Feynman because Feynman actually argued against them and wanted more proofs. Or as another book I read put it, "Recognising your own weaknesses and taking steps to correct them is rare. And praiseworthy." Even if you ARE actually so good that everything you say is true and brilliant ... how can you KNOW if everyone is just nodding? You may get away with it in liberal arts, but for real science, as well as strategy, you need someone who will independently check for mistakes. Because even if you never made a mistake, it just means the first you do will be devastating. ... and in nuclear physics, that is even more worrying than in other fields.

    Maybe, but being able to resist the wand, and possibly all magic, might be what Arthur would like, because then any potential criminals and law enforcment would still be relying on convential methods since using magic would most often end in a stalemate. I don't think so ... Arthur would certainly prefer if DGB would still be able to use magic. More importantly, their priority is to find easy way to raise enchantment resistance of almost ALL people, WITHOUT awakening them. I think that resisting the wand will be impossible for most people even after awakening. The danger is not about criminals using magic - that will happen anyway, even magic which is not cast on other people is very useful. I think the danger is about someone enchanting large amount of people for long time or even indefinitely. Sure, Edward was talking about wands with homing fireballs, but those are not really bigger danger than someone using assault gun (as Pandora mentioned). But can you imagine someone like not-Tengu using his power to win elections? Or worse, build an army?
