    Yes and no. Yes, she could deduce a lot of it on her own. But not all of it, and some of it -- specifically that all sorts of magical devices are coming to life, old and new -- may well be important for her to know in maybe only minutes from now. The distinction might not seem to matter but to Magus at least it could be an indication that big trouble is on its way.

    Technically she kicked the soccer ball at the griffin, but yes.

    I am starting to feel just a little more liking for that wand. At least it is giving out useful information now. You are never going to let them forget the time they were caught playing spin-the-bottle with one of your canopic jars, are you.
  4. Things You Find Amusing

    I just had an increase in the rent on my apartment. It comes out to about 75 cents a month. Clearly I am facing utter financial ruin.
  5. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    In the case of aforesaid parliamentary members, their work would be sufficient evidence to prove that an EEG from them would be registering a false positive.
  6. Story Monday 4-23-2018

    It is the only crime that is still punishable by being drawn and quartered. That is, after first being made to watch both aforesaid movies. By the time the execution itself rolls around, most offenders are begging for death. The European Convention of Human Rights keeps squawking about it. But we all know what to say to that.
  7. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    Take heart. That places you well ahead of a lot of people. The vast majority of Danish Parliament springs to mind. Idiotic as this may sound, my initial reaction on reading this was relief. After reading a couple of other posts of yours I was terrified that it might have been cancer. Migraines are awful and I would not wish them on anyone, but after having had cancer in close quarters in my own life I have developed a terror of it I cannot adequately explain.
  8. Story Monday 4-23-2018

    Or maybe 'Plan 10 from Outer Space'?
  9. NP Monday April 23, 2018

    That's true, he could be AFAB. You know, I think I will ask Dan anyway.
  10. Story Monday 4-23-2018

    You know, I think you are absolutely correct. That makes a lot of sense.
  11. Story Monday 4-23-2018

    Now you have me wondering if one of the magical artifacts might be an Endless Barrel of Exposition.
  12. NP Monday April 23, 2018

    Goldarnit, and here I had for years stuck to idea of the DD being female because of the underrepresentation of female lesbian demonic ducks in media.
  13. Story Monday 4-23-2018

    I am now really starting to suspect that a cascade of awakening magical artifacts is forthcoming. So far we haven't seen anything EEEEEEK-worthy, which indicates to me that either one really nasty thing will happen or that a lot of devices will come to life at the same time.
  14. NP Monday April 23, 2018

    I am not sure anyone has ever asked Dan. I might give it a go. DC also didn't need to create series like Countdown or Amazons Attack. This didn't stop them. *sigh*
  15. Things That Are Just Annoying

    I disagree with that last one. The power that can most effectively build and destroy civilisations is brain power. In fact, it is rather a sine qua non for the building of them.
  16. NP Monday April 23, 2018

    Awesome. It's been so long since we last saw the Demonic Duck. I've missed her. <3
  17. Things That Are Just Annoying

    Seconded. I was subjected to two long ones a few years back. They came almost back to back, with only a week or two between them. The first one was just in my apartment and eventually got fixed when a guy from the power company found the break. When the second one came I was about to blow my fuse, then I discovered that all of Copenhagen and its suburbs had lost power, so at least it was not the same problem. Still, that was not fun.
  18. Story Friday April 20, 2018

    They are only two out of a large number of artifacts in that warehouse. I am not willing to discount the possibility that there may be others as well. I fully agree that sentient magical devices from an earlier system would very likely have been rendered dormant along with the systems themselves.
  19. EGS Strip Slaying

    You mean latinteresting how latinfluenced it is.
  20. EGS Strip Slaying

    It's the sort of place where they argue about stuff like whether 'Akhenaton' should be spelled with one or two flatulent ibises.
  21. Story Friday April 20, 2018

    I hear you. Memory is like a whatchamacallit.
  22. This Day In History

    They are also remarkably stupid. It is always the same hoary "kill Hitler and change the future." Even granting that Hitler was all that important and horrible (it is very doubtful that his absence would have prevented WWII, it might easily still have occurred with other actors), no-one ever tries to undercut him by, say, mitigating or altering the events that led to WW1.
  23. Story Friday April 20, 2018

    Err, 'reaction'? *scratches head*
  24. Story Wednesday, Apr 18, 2018

    As my argument was that searching for radio signals alone might not be sufficient, this was my entire point, yes. Indeed. Dan went from everyone using land lines to smart phones in the space of less than one in-comic year. That's fast, even for the telephone industry.
  25. NP Wednesday April 18, 2018

    I had so much fun with this game. I created involved backstories for my characters. Some of them serious, some less so. It was not uncommon for me to undertake adventures based on motivations similar to your outfit run and your cosmetic surgery patient. I approve wholeheartedly of both; the former reminded me of the time where I -- but I think I'll save these tales for Off Topic.
