  1. Comic for Wednesday April 20, 2022

    Tedd should be able to make a wooden bedframe into a wand with that spell if his dad shows him the spell.
  2. Comic for Monday, February 14, 2022

    I've had my own house de-powered via squirrel at least twice, and last decade most of the business district here went down from another. After the most recent, the power company installed "squirrel excluders" to block access to our block's step-down transformer.

    One thing in Grace's favor -- breaking the laws of nature is not usually in violation of an employment contract.

    I've seen graphics poor enough to pull it off -- decades ago, when there was too little detail to be indecent and nudity was used only for plot purposes i.e. complete lack of armor.
  5. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    Has anyone yet considered, while debating how much magic the mirror might have seen since being uncovered, that a seer recharged a wand not far from the mirror? I'm guessing that flares off as much magic as all the spells put together, since the "visual nonsense" is pretty flashy.

    About the only action by DGB that wouldn't make things worse would be to do a full reverse and instead of hiding everything, give parents and children alike genuine information. They could probably get away with just the bare essentials, as long as they were upfront that "Hey, this is the part we're sure won't make things worse to tell you."

    More or less the same thing I learned from multiple sources -- C will always give you enough rope to hang yourself, so better learn how to avoid coding traps. On the up side, C doesn't make you spend more time dodging language limitations than doing the job.

    Maybe "encouraging" healing? A ninety-year-old Sarah with a broken hip still having to heal normally, but at 17-year-old rates?
  9. Story Monday April 6 2020

    Heidi (Elliot's over-caffeinated secret identity form) sounds like a blabbermouth but doesn't seem to give away as much as Elliot in his base form. The really bad blurting from So A Date - Part 5 was an imagine spot.
  10. Story Friday April 3rd 2020

    A spotlight shining so it only illuminates the fairy, from a different direction than the rest of the lighting, would make the shadows on the fairy look fake.

    Ah, but the advantage of nanos is they don't have to be "per" anything. The speed of light is actually a dimensionless number (light seconds per second is just "light") so one nano-light is also dimensionless.
  12. NP Thur March 19 2020

    What I'd like to see is those silly miles or kilometers per hour replaced with nanos -- where one nano is one one-billionth of the speed of light. That would make the interstate speed limit around here about 97 nanos.
  13. In the USA, at least, prepaid cards are often frozen for any or no reason unless you fax the company proof of identity (which is an obvious temptation for any even slightly shady card companies).
  14. I know for some students, failure to follow instructions is because of being bored into a stupor. Forcing wakefulness with stimulants might prevent that (while most likely causing other problems).
  15. Story Friday, January 17, 2020

    My own guess is that Elliot can clearly tell that Sarah is trying to cut off the conversation before he hears what is going on, and by now he has enough power (and resistance) to refuse to transform for use as a diversion.

    They could be a saturated solution -- a small amount of bodily fluid has already dissolved all the witch-tissue it can, and cannot dissolve any more.

    I've always imagined that Uryuoms have some exceptionally stable form of DNA or its equivalent that codes for enzymes to copy and edit what we think of as "normal" DNA, sort of the way our DNA is a more stable version of RNA that codes for enzymes to (amoung many other things) copy stored patterns into RNA and determine when to copy and/or edit particular subsets of RNA. Changing the entire organism to match what it would be if it's DNA had been that way from the beginning would require more than a little magic.

    In our universe, they are one and the same. In EGS they might not be (maybe their Will Of Physics isn't as strict as ours, hence the "polite suggestions").

    I would expect a more complicated outcome -- because of her ambivalence about actually having magic, a very limited or even "fizzle1" effect (someone shrinks a single inch, etc.). 1 fizzle -- from the cartoon sound effect for fireworks and such that don't go off.
  20. Monday, November 25, 2019

    I think Dan is using the tension between Sarah being tempted and resisting temptation as a way to make her almost believably imperfect without adding the extra plot complications of her actually doing bad things.
  21. It isn't so much the English spelling; we've incorporated so many words from so many other languages that we are constantly trying (and failing) to guess from which language we borrowed a particular word, as well as how much or how little we modified it after borrowing it. Each of those other languages has different rules for spelling, and we might follow our rules or their rules, with some words modified enough that the original rules won't work at which point we might or might not change completely to English rules.
  22. I'm not nearly that good at it yet, but I think that calls for "Duplicate layer" followed by erasing the background part from one copy and drawing the hidden part of the background part over the foreground in the other copy.

    Has anyone yet referenced the discovery of special eye muscles that allow puppies to do that trick? Humans already have those, so just practicing should do it.
  24. NP Monday November 11, 2019

    As long as it is clearly spelled out exactly what information you can demand, it could help, but you still need the rest of the trial. For example, demanding to know every time person A hit person B without mentioning that person B was attacking person A at the time would not result in justice.

    There is the common situation where fading eyesight is "assisted" by memory -- remembering what those few hints you can still see should be associated with. Something totally unfamiliar is missing the many details that your memory fills in for you, leaving just a fuzzy cloud (the give-away that you are starting to do this is when you "notice" details that are usually there but just don't happen to be there this time).
