  1. Story, Friday November 10, 2017

    Magus actually embodied? Wow, this show is really on the road!
  2. I need to vent.

    Sometimes people are having a rough time and get overly defensive. Sometimes people are in an environment where that could be expected, and carry that expectation elsewhere. Some people are just jerks.
  3. So, what did I miss?

    Who got the genderbend cutie mark magic mark? When (real life date) will the current arc end? Will Sarah and Sam agree to a (specific) date before the end of 2016? That kind of thing.
  4. So, what did I miss?

    I had a betting system set up, and a lot of people participated in one of the pools, but the forum eated it before it resolved. And I didn't keep a local backup. Oops.
  5. Greasemonkey forum scripts

    The only official forum-provided EGS emoticon is ? … okay.
  6. Political Discussion Thread (READ FIRST POST)

    Hmm. Well, the race as it was done locally, was about local issues. Trump and national issues, of course, are the reason the rest of us cared. So most people talking about the race around the country were interested because of Trump. That does not mean that the race itself was actually about Trump, and still less does it mean that Ossoff's message was at all about Trump.

    So, neither special election in GA nor SC managed to flip deeply red seats blue. No surprise there. The margins were as close as you might expect given the popularity of congress, of the president, and the amount of money poured in. Most surprising was the South Carolina race, which was quite close indeed and did not attract anywhere near the attention of the GA race. Given that these seats were chosen to be vacated, it is reasonable to suppose that they were chosen partially for their safeness. These did not look like safe-seat races.

    Yikes! This is not how to express political disagreement!
  9. mixing genes

    Whoa. This is a lot like an idea I had back in 2000, for a fantasy setting in which two wizards from not-too-divergent branches of the Homo branch wanted to have kids, and created a female-only hybrid who could (in principle) reproduce with either side (though as of the events of the book, they were still being debugged, not yet considering having children - indeed, much of the book is centered on a certain extreme method of debugging). In that case, though, males would be the same species as the father, while females would be the hybrid. This real-life system is a considerably more involved process.
  10. Things You Find Amusing

    Okay, so this is really old… Reminds me of the argument I had about this yeeears ago back on StarDestroyer.net. Jeez. Looking for that has reminded me why I left.

    The monster they fought was 'Not-Tengu', so we're already set!
  12. All Things Ashley

    > giant fire goo griffin I observe that this is also not a tengu.

    Yes, but we were talking about CO2 emissions, not NOx, sulfur, and particulates.

    We have roughly 2.5 times China's carbon emissions per capita, and that's without taking into account supply-chaining (in which if they build something we consume, it would count towards us).
  15. Political Discussion Thread (READ FIRST POST)

    Action would hobble and hamstring us, yet without doing any of that, we'll still be reducing more than China's going to? That sounds very doubtful. Compare China's goal of 64% reduction from 2005 levels by 2030 to the goal you just said would hamstring us, to reduce by 28% from 2005 levels. So either China has to not just fail a little but completely in reducing, in which case Paris wasn't actually bad to be in anyway - or we utterly clobber our Paris goal without trouble.
