      Welcome, everyone, to the new 910CMX Community Forums. I'm still working on getting them running, so things may change.  If you're a 910 Comic creator and need your forum recreated, let me know and I'll get on it right away.  I'll do my best to make this new place as fun as the last one!

  1. And, of course, not actually being disabled, have a natural advantage in manipulating it.
  2. 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!"
  3. 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.
  4. There's the problem, then. Lots and lots of invasive species.
  5. I got the courier one, but I don't get the elephant one.
  6. Interesting that Grace knew about that. I wonder what form of conversation that was, and what else Tedd was expressing.
  7. 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.
  8. Where do you recommend I get them?
  9. Of those I've only seen Duke Nukem, and that only a little.
  10. What have you written, Prof. Tomoe? Most of my stuff is OC Remixes of older stuff, so assuming you're writing actual game soundtracks, I probably haven't got it Here's the beginning of the top tier (153 in all, I show first 34) (unless marked as OST or another source, all are OC Remixes): Devil's Advocate - Touhou (a pretty straight remix neatening up U.N. Owen was Her) Thanks for Dinner - Uru FML (If I Could Drift Away) - Gitaroo Man The Shredder - TMNT 4 Mute Radiology - F-Zero Trauermarsch (Last Dungeon) - Balance and Ruin album - FF6 <- hilarious if you know your Mahler Livin' Large! - the imaginary game Cheetahmen II Magnet Man Goes West - Mega Man 3 Lavos Battle dnBoss - Chrono Trigger Planet Red Alert - The Precursors Remix Pack for The Ur-Quan Masters Fierce Battle - FF6 OST Orbit 1 - The Precursors Remix Pack for The Ur-Quan Masters Voices Broken - F-Zero GAUNTLET!! - (one guess) House Leaves - Crystalis Pharoah Land - Lifeforce The Unbroken - Cave Story Spoiled R0TT3N - Super Meat Boy When All Hope Has Faded - Chrono Trigger Dancing Madly (First Form) - FF6 Cleansing Required - The Precursors Remix Pack for The Ur-Quan Masters Dancing Madly (Second Form) - FF6 Nirvana - Earthbound Team Making - FFT OST Space Grind - Delta Thin Glow - Stunt Race FX Reich Lake - Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Oppression - Cave Story OST Epitaph - FF6 OST
  11. I'm going through my video game music list and trying to demote things from the second tier, which is a bit fat; and also categorize them a bit by putting them into secondary themed playlists, and also break up runs of songs from the same game, and otherwise pair things up in a sensible fashion.
  12. Well, that was when they received the report. If it actually happened while he was in class, that would be pretty conclusive.
  13. This sounds like it has a tragic tale behind it…
  14. > TA transwoman who is 6' 2" and has a five o'clock shadow and an Adam's apple is not going to be able to use the women's room in peace. Such a person is in a pickle either way, it seems.
  15. Good luck. Just don't mention the Conversion Bureau, and if someone else mentions it, don't get involved.
  16. I don't see what's SO amusing about it. I mean, we have a possible quasi-time-travel incident, so people are confused.
  17. In what way? Link?
  18. How the heck are we even supposed to even go on after that?
  19. Completely aside from the main discussion, > the Democrat Party It is the "Democratic party".
  20. I am missing the post where you introduce what is going on here.
  21. > I don't remember a government takeover of healthcare ever being popular. I don't remember a government takeover of healthcare ever being on the table, let alone enacted into law. The apparent lack of compromise on healthcare is laughable considering they started with the compromise plan - essentially the Republican counteroffer from the 1990s health care debate.
  22. Aaand DJT pointedly declined to mess with a notable LGBT protection order Obama put in place. +1 point
  23. The main direct effect you get from having a bunch of line blockers keeping the first 30000 feet gravity-free is that you no longer have a time limit on operations there - it becomes more like orbit. So, you can use a more efficient rocket. But since this is the first stage, it hardly makes a difference. But the indirect effects might end up being pretty significant - you are going to have one HECK of a wind kicked up around the edge of the zone. Air will come in the bottom and find that it's suddenly facing much lighter gravity, so it expands upwards; at the top, it conversely suddenly finds that it is much too dense for the altitude it is, and it comes down. I expect this would become stronger over time, up to some limit; it is not clear to me how fast it would be, but it could be a very strong updraft. Maybe instead of firing a first stage rocket at all they let out parachutes and have that accelerate them up to the first 150 mph or something. Only fire up the rockets when you've reached peak upward velocity off of the wind. … and again that's insignificant. The KE of 150 mph is just not that much compared to orbit. BUT that's assuming the line blockers have a short range. Why would they? If they're blocking the lines like the name implies, they could cast a long-reaching gravity shadow up from where they are. And the wider the area, the further the shadow. Maybe it all comes back eventually, but you only need to make the region of effect teardrop-shaped (or more extremely, comet-shaped) to give ships a nice long upwards path. The tail would be pointed directly away from the attractive body, so the ship would have to stay above the column… in this case it might end up cheaper to go to Geosynchronous than Low-Earth orbit. If you don't like that idea, let the line-benders operate much higher. Balloons can operate all the way out to the edge of space. Let them go up 50 km. That would be long enough that maybe a low thrust, high specific-impulse first stage would be a good idea.
  24. 'Some inclination' shouldn't be too surprising since our previous president showed some http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/obameter/ (NOTE: whether you agree with a promise is irrelevant to this following bit:) He did every reasonable action within his power to close the prison at Guantanamo, but that really required Congress, which did not go along. There are a lot of 'compromises' on there, and several outright successes.
  25. I'd like to point out at this point that Donald Trump is NOT reflective of the Republican party. Going after him does not put you on the general-purpose left. It's not just the Washingon Post, here.
