    Sleep Swashbuckling? This sounds like the premise for ZZZorro! The story of a hero to the oppressed people of Spanish California who doesn't even know that he is the mysterious vigilante because he dons the mask only when sleepwalking.

    Clearly nobody else. So far it is only her who is interested in him. Once she finds out what Edward's specific tastes are, it's magical swords time. Oh, she already knows. It's just that until the not-a-reset, she wasn't able to learn any magical swords spell due to being Uryuomn.

    Things You Find Amusing

    My son ate Jon St. John's nachos. If you're familiar with the Duke Nukem 3D series of games, you'll have heard Jon—he's the voice of Duke Nukem. Well, my son and I were supposed to meet with him at the Let's Play convention in Irving, TX this past weekend and give him some more of my Calibrations CDs to give away. We'd agreed to meet up at some point during the convention. The story takes place at lunch, right after we'd sat down at a round table that was just clearing out. The café was packed. We had just started eating when a man and a woman came up and asked if they could join us. That man and woman were Jon St. John and his manager. I thought they were doing it intentionally, so I said, "Sure!" I rose, extended a hand, and said, "If I'm going to shake your hand, I'd better well do it standing." He looked at me and said, "Who are you?" We finally figured out our identities and exchanged greetings. During lunch, Jon got miffed at the café staff over their nachos. He likes crunchy nachos that you can dip into the cheese, but they'd poured cheese all over his chips, making them soggy. My son had also ordered nachos, but had dry chips. He offered to swap with Jon, who after a bit of hesitation, accepted. Later on, Jon told my son, "You made my lunch." So, my son ate Jon St. John's nachos.

    I am no huge Pokémon buff so I am not sure. Are they going to be some sort of Team Rocket parody? Obviously. We've seen that the Grace are able to form complete sentences, they may act kinda childish (their second tier forms seem a bit more mature compared to their starting form though) but it seems like you could hold a conversation with them. It's true that this wouldn't be that hard conversation topics. Yeah, don't make any drugs ... no poison powder, no sleep powder, no sweet scent ...

    No. This is certainly Rhoda. Susan wouldn't smirk like this even if looking at Elliot. Also, Susan and earrings? She didn't care about Nanase "taking peeks" as Susan because Nanase got an eyeful of Susan when she first made the doll. Also Susan was uncomfortable with Nanase prodding herself, despite her blushing, she's still finds it awkward enough to protest, so I file that as evidence supporting my statement. ... right. She might not be entirely honest when saying she barely cares. It's seeing someone that looks like her doing "things" that would be the issue, like "that's my body in physical contact with stuff" even though it's not actually her. As I said, anxieties are not logical, yes. My whole point was that it's hard to say. In fact, Susan herself might not know until it happens ... hence the need for experiments. Though experiments, at least. Right. Got that backward. And I said almost identical and most obvious difference is from the growth spurt and hair color Susan get when awakening. But you know she would totally use it as a controlled environment for getting over her anxieties though. It's safe, private, and she can bail out if things get too much for her without having to worry about getting anyone else involved. I didn't said she wouldn't. Even if she would consider it risky, the temptation would be too much.

    Video Game Discussion 4

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct: August 8, 2018 (wow, did I really not do this for the E3 reveal? ...here it is anyway, just in case you haven't watched it) Here's a quick breakdown: Starting with a character reveal: Simon Lashes Out! That's right; Simon Belmont from Castlevania! "Hey man! Haven't seen you in a while. Now we can re-enact-" Mega Man: "SHH! Don't bring that up!" Pit: "Bring up what-icus?" Mega Man: "AARGH!" The same trailer also reveals that Richter Crosses Over! Two! Two Castlevania protagonists! Ah ah ah! *dramatic thunder and lightning* Incidentally, this means we currently have playable fighters from 32 unique video game franchises (well... 30, depending on how you count Yoshi and Wario) across On top of that, we get Alucard as an Assist Trophy and Dracula's Castle as a stage, complete with thirty-four music tracks! Said Dracula's Castle stage has numerous enemies from the Castlevania games, from the Mummy to the Werewolf to the lightning-revealed silhouette of a character only called ????? (some people seem to recognize the silhouette as that of Kid Dracula). Dracula appears as a boss, but the conditions for his appearance are still a mystery. Hmm... Right after that, we got two more Echo Fighters (re: clones... Wow, did I really not post here about E3? I guess I didn't. Huh.) Chrom from Fire Emblem: Awakening. He's a clone Echo Fighter of Roy, though he has Ike's recovery and a completely new Final Smash. Dark Samus from the Metroid Prime trilogy. She's a clone of Bowser (I'm kidding). We got some stage reveals as well. Previously, the GameXplain people managed to find 86 unique stages between the E3 direct and demo, and the character showcase videos, snapshots, and and portraits on the Smash Ultimate website. Well, we've bumped that number up to 103! For the record, there's only 120 stages across the entire series, and we're getting over 85% of them! Stages from the N64 Smash Bros. retain their old look while stages from Melee onwards get a graphical makeover. Only teased at in Mario's character showcase video, we now have confirmation of New Donk City Hall, based on the location from Super Mario Odyssey. It's a scrolling stage that goes up the tower to the top before cycling back down. Tired of playing on the Wily Castle stage and having to fight the Yellow Devil every ten seconds? Say no more! Stage Hazards can be turned completely off. This might open up more stages for professional tournament play without having to stick with their Final Destination or Battlefield forms. Can't pick just one stage? Pick two! The Stage Morph option lets you choose two stages. During the match, it will switch between them. You can set the switch to happen randomly or after a certain amount of time has passed. Mix things up! And lastly, every stage will be available at start. There will be no unlockable stages; they're all available from the moment you turn the game on. We saw a stage roster with all stages revealed so far. Including the random option, there's still enough room for six more... "Vegeta, what does the scouter say about the number of music tracks?" "It's over EIGHT-HUNDRED!" "WHAT!? EIGHT-HUNDRED!?" That's just for music for stages; including menu music and fanfare, that goes up to "OVER NINE-HUNDRED!" For the record, assuming no looping or repeats, that's over 28 hours of music! Yeesh. Trips to Namek don't take that long. Music is now grouped by series instead of by stage, so if you're playing a Zelda stage, you can use any Zelda music in the game. You can also make your own playlists, and listen to them with the Switch in handheld mode like any music player. When setting up a match in online multiplayer, the FIRST thing you do is make a rule set. By the way, Stamina mode is an available mode for multiplayer matches. Final Smash Meter! Enable this, and you can build up a Final Smash meter. When it's full, you can use a weaker version of your Final Smash. Multiple characters can now have Final Smashes ready, though only one can use them at a time. Since Final Smashes can be not random (chasing the Smash Ball was definitely random) and are also weaker in this way, this means we might be seeing Final Smashes in professional tournaments. Game modes! Squad Strike! It's a 3-on-3 or 5-on-5 elimination-style match. Basically a three-or-five-stock battle where each stock is a different fighter. You could also have five players per side. Tournament mode! Back to how it was in Brawl, you can host your own local tournaments with up to 32 fighters. Smashdown! Choose your characters for round 1. For round 2, you cannot choose those characters! Play through the roster with no repeats. Heck, if you wanna play strategically, pick a character you know your friend is good at so that they can't use that one against you later. Training Mode got a redesign. Now there's a grid, so you can judge character sizes and distances. Your opponent in Training Mode is a fighter this time instead of a sandbag, so you can test out grapples too. When you hit someone, you see launch trajectories. Classic Mode! Battle your way against several consecutive fighters on specific stages, just like in the old days. Each fighter has their own set of opponents. New items! Banana Gun. Shoot the innards of the banana like a projectile. The peel turns into a regular Banana Peel. Death's Scythe from Castlevania. Instantly KOs enemies that are badly damaged. Killer Edge. When the blade glows red, it deals more damage. Staff. Deals more damage the farther away the target is. Ramblin' Evil Mushroom from Earthbound. This makes other fighters' controls flip around. That's confusing. Rage Blaster. The more damage the wielder has taken, the stronger the shot. New Pokemon and Assist Trophies Alolan Exeggutor. This super-tall palm tree Pokemon acts as a solid obstacle, so you can't get past it. Characters that can wall-jump and cling to walls can do so to Alolan Exeggutor's neck. Vulpix and Alolan Vulpix. Two separate Pokemon. Vulpix appears to use Ember, shooting a burst of fire forwards like Lucas' PK Fire. Alolan Vulpix does the opposite, shooting ice. Mimikyu. This little whatever-it-is grabs a fighter and takes it under its cloak, dealing damage and KO'ing them. Pyukumuku. This sea cucumber Pokemon only deals damage when attacked. Marshadow. This ghostly Pokemon attacks from the shadows. Ditto. Originally planned for Super Smash Bros. Melee but couldn't be implemented due to technical issues (re: bugs), Ditto transforms into a copy of whoever summons it. Zero from Mega Man X. He attacks using beam swords and other things. Nikki from the Swap Note messaging app of all things. She draws things on a drawing pad. Those things appear on the stage and can do stuff. She's shown drawing a Bonzai Bill from the Mario games, which proceeds to fly off stage, dealing damage to the fighters in its way. She can probably draw other things. SHOVEL KNIGHT. Deals damage and digs up food. Kapp'n from Animal Crossing. He gets in his bus and drives off, picking up anyone in his way (whether they like it or not) and driving them to the blast line. Chef Kawasaki from Kirby. He basically uses Kirby's Final Smash from Brawl, where fighters and items get sucked into a giant cooking pot for a bit before being spat out. A Klaptrap from Donkey Kong. This jumpy little mini crocodile thingy bites fighters. Not that impressive, but hey, they can't all be... The MOON from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. The Moon drops from the sky to crash into the stage! Seriously! The freakin' MOON! Is that Rathalos? The Rathalos enemy from Monster Hunter appears as an Assist Trophy. It also pulls double-duty and appears as a boss on a stage we don't recognize. Hmm... The menu looks nice, but there's this one option that's deliberately pixellated as they can't talk about it yet. Hmm... Sakurai said every fighter will be revealed before launch. A bit disappointing if you wanted some surprise, but in the age of Internet, it's really not gonna make a difference to me, so eh. And for the closer? King K. Rool Comes Aboard! So... Hype?

    Yes, it was a book about blowing things up... "How to make War". Actually I have the 3 previous editions of it. Just this is month with less money due to the bike. I'm keeping the book, so don't know if they would take "I was on drugs" as a reason. I also suspect that the return shipping would be more than the cost of the book, so it's a wash. This isn't the first time I did this, for what it's worth. My current epee was bought while asleep.

    TL:DR version: TMs (Technical/Technique Machines) are items that are used to teach a Pokemon moves that they do not learn via leveling up, but not all Pokemon can learn every move out there (e.g. they can't usually learn the more powerful ones that are contrary to their elemental types). Move Tutors are NPCs who act as living TMs--they will teach a move to a Pokemon who is in your party.

    Story Wednesday July 25, 2018

    Well you figured that you not only have to account for every possible instance where the development of the universe itself could go multiple ways, but also every instance for each galaxy, each solar system, each planet, and each individual creature, and once you get to Humans, it really gets complicated because Humans make hundreds of choices every day from what clothes to wear, what to eat, who to talk to, etc, and at this point, 7 billion people means a lot of choices are being made and we still gotta include things happening on the universe, galactic, solar and creature levels as well. if there is a finite number of universes, that number would be absolutely enormous. Meanwhile, if there is infinite number of universes, it doesn't present any problem. For the same reason you can fit countably infinitely many coachloads of countably infinite passengers each into single hotel with a countably infinite number of rooms, all of which are already occupied. That's very interesting and complicated idea for explaining something which can be explained much simpler: human memory is stored in way which is not designed to remain clear. Neural nets like brain are very inefficient regarding reliable data storage, but it was working good enough for practical purposes until like few thousand years ago, which is too short time to evolve something better ... especially considering that even now, it's something which would be nice to have but our live rarely depends on it. However, I have alternative idea: universes which don't differ at all will merge and become stronger in the process. Like, two universes can have different history but get to the same state later. EXACTLY same state, as in noone even remembers the difference - either noone noticed, or they forgot, or the ones who remembered it died ... And the "stronger" part? That's my solution to navigation: all universes are not equal when you want to visit them. The stronger the universe is, the easier is to "tune" your "gate" to it. And the universe is stronger when relatively low number of improbable stuff happened in it, or when it's result of merge of more universes (which may actually be the same) ... or if more people believe in it (that explain why you have any chance at all to hit universe with something as unlikely as life). You don't even need multiple universes to realize that our planets only astronomical significance is that all astronomers we know live on it.

    It got better after a few hours. I saw the doctor later that day and told her about it. She told me to call the nurse during the week or 911 during the weekend if it happens again, since it might be a sign of a lethal blood clot. I haven't had any pain since. In other news, I've had low blood pressure lately (105/54 at the infectious disease specialist), and I've been thinking it's due to the diuretic I'm on for edema in my legs. I sent my regular doctor an e-mail about it, and he advised me to lay off the diuretic for a few days to see if my BP comes back up.

    There are multiple valid answers to that. Magus was the one who got the Sirleck/Vampire balls rolling, so he could be considered the primary antagonist of that plot-line (or the protagonist, by the older definition where they were the one who caused changes and drove the plot), even if he wasn't even close to 100% evil and got away in the end. Meanwhile, Voltaire manipulated Sirleck (and in so doing orchestrated Pandora's reset) and was trying to influence the outcome of the Magic change, so he's also a good candidate for the primary "villain" of Sister III. The Old Hack's view that the primary obstacle was the change in magic itself also holds some merit. ...Actually, though, this doesn't really feel like the end of an era to me. Sure, it's a major turning point, but Pandora will be back, the masquerade isn't going to be dropped immediately, and the change in magic didn't result in anyone loosing any magic. Pretty much the only things that ended were Pandora's instability, Magus' time as an incorporeal entity, and Sirleck's life, none of which I expect to have a major impact on the main cast's lives (at least once they get past the worst of the pain of Pandora's reset and until Magus launches his next plot, whatever that might be). The magic clog is supposed to end too, and that might actually have a big impact on the cast, but we haven't seen that yet. I think what will really serve as the biggest ends-of-eras in EGS will be the cast getting out of High School, and (assuming the comic gets that far) their getting out of College. I suppose it would be quite the coincidence to have the gang have to deal with Lord Tedd right around one of those times, but that's the sort of thing I was thinking of. And a love triangle.
