  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. The only official forum-provided EGS emoticon is ? … okay.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Yikes! This is not how to express political disagreement!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. The monster they fought was 'Not-Tengu', so we're already set!
  10. > giant fire goo griffin I observe that this is also not a tengu.
  11. Yes, but we were talking about CO2 emissions, not NOx, sulfur, and particulates.
  12. 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).
  13. 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. Which is it? http://www.climateactiontracker.org/countries/china.html http://www.climateactiontracker.org/countries/usa.html
  14. OK.
  15. Is there a separate thread for NON-EGS strip slaying?
  16. And, of course, not actually being disabled, have a natural advantage in manipulating it.
  17. Since the Word of Dan thread is for the actual things said, this is for reacting to them. In particular, I'm reacting to the declaration that "I will never change a plot point because someone predicted correctly. I'm actively giving out clues. I WANT it all to add up ^^;" YES. Pete Abrams has a strict no-predictions no-speculation policy in the reactions threads because some horrible person gave him a lot of trouble years ago for ripping her idea off, when all they'd done was make a nearly-correct prediction. I think it's a bit of an overreaction, since this seems like a good defense. "So you noticed the method to the seeming chaos. Congratulations!"
  18. I had a lot of poison ivy when I moved to my new house, so I got some experience with that. Roundup is effective on poison ivy, but if you want other things to grow in that area, don't spray - instead, dip the poison ivy leaves in the concentrated liquid and smear the liquid on its hairy bark. If it's one local bush, this is surprisingly effective and will be easier than spraying enough. You can handle them easily with garden gloves over thick rubber kitchen gloves (which never come apart from each other ever again and are set aside in a special place). Bag the remains and put them in the trash - don't put them in yard waste. If there is a dead zone, you can put herbal plants like grass in the area, but woody plants will have a hard time.
  19. There's the problem, then. Lots and lots of invasive species.
  20. I got the courier one, but I don't get the elephant one.
  21. Interesting that Grace knew about that. I wonder what form of conversation that was, and what else Tedd was expressing.
  22. I was on reddit /r/samplesize and found a 'casual' (i.e. not for research or serious publication) genderbending survey. Figured people might be interested.
  23. Where do you recommend I get them?
  24. Of those I've only seen Duke Nukem, and that only a little.
  25. What have you written, Prof. Tomoe?
