  1. Things You Only Noticed On Reread

    I'm not sure that art accurately reflects Susan - after all, she has expressed some interest in watching.

    Or just pick them up... and up... and up... and then let go.

    Nanase, Elliot, Ellen, Justin, and Grace are able - and know how - to kill someone with their bare hands. Or feet. Or, for Grace, antennae. Diane may have also learned how, incidental to her cheerleading training. Ashley, in dance and/or soccer.

    Especially considering Tedd only made one so they needs to take turns instead of everyone transforming each other as fast as possible ... which might be fun but Tedd wouldn't be able to make research. I would be somewhat surprised if Tedd doesn't have an even number of wands. Considering that drumsticks of that sort generally come in pairs. Note however that (a) a pair of drumsticks need not be turned into identical wands and (b) just because she has more doesn't necessarily mean that she'll bring more out for the party. (Oh, and also it's possible that one got broken.)
  5. Things You Find Amusing

    It was Krazy Kat Hour.
  6. Things that make you go WTF

    Today I noticed that the vehicle in front of us was a Porsche SUV. Immediate thought: "Official street vehicle of the John Deere Formula-1 Racing Team?"
  7. Changing Medications (Level of Trust Required)

    You needed a different surgeon. A gastric bypass isn't supposed to go through the ankles.
  8. Story Friday, January 17, 2020

    There are a bunch of magical items left over from old magic systems, that nobody knows what they do. And with the small change in magic, they are now active again. However, considering the number that were stashed in that window-pane-less warehouse, it's unlikely that one would be stashed in Mr. Verres' home - unless he was studying it, in which case it probably wouldn't be forgotten about so soon. Also, that looks like a fairly modern door and doorknob. Not old enough to be from a previous magic system.

    Remember, every car on the road has four-wheel brakes. My sister's first husband, seriously into back-woods off-road driving, told me that four-wheel drive simply allows you to get stuck deeper in the woods.

    There's a hockey game where the players don't take the most severe injuries in this story...
  12. Story December 30, 2019

    The schools my granddaughter attended recently (in the last year or two) did that. The schools my lady attended went further, but we don't know when: they now have ONE building for all the grades including preschool (which pushes total enrollment up to 99). I attended a combined junior-senior high school. The main building has since been torn down and a complex of new buildings replace it, including separate buildings for junior and senior high school. Enrollment was declining when I graduated but is now increasing - and is basically back up to what it was back then.

    Odds are, Susan's father is Mr. Pompons. A woman taking back her maiden name after a divorce does NOT automatically carry the change over to minor children she has custody of.
  14. Story December 30, 2019

    Yes, depending on the number of students involved - mostly; there's also a significant amount of inertia, as school buildings don't magically appear and disappear. That inertia also causes some variability in arrangements, as a building that was big enough for N grades is now only big enough for N-1 grades with more students per grade. What's fairly reliable: 3rd through 5 grades are in elementary school, 7th and 8th are in either middle school or junior high, and 10th through 12th are in senior high. Lower-population school districts tend to combine junior and senior high in a single facility, or even to combine all schools into a single facility. In general, areas of declining population tend toward combining school facilities, while areas of increasing population tend toward separating them. Which makes sense: if you have a good school building for a thousand students and you now need to accommodate expected growth to two thousand, it's cheaper to build a new school for one thousand and cut the existing school in two than to build a new school for two thousand and then have a vacant school to dispose of. The preferred direction of the cut - whether you divide each grade into two parts, or leave each grade the same and move the entirety of some of them to the new school - would depend on circumstances. Flip side, if your student body is declining and you have to replace an obsolete building, an addition to a non-obsolete building means you can make better use of that building and share some facilities and staff, reducing the amount of new construction needed - saving both capital and operating costs as compared to a new separate school.
  15. Story December 30, 2019

    Tom, I think the sentence "How will Rhea arrange a catastrophe that will publicly reveal a great personal truth about herself?" is looking for something that will tell Rhea something about Rhea - not something about Diane. Spying on Diane seems an unlikely route to such a discovery.
