    You mean the folks who put skirts and other clothing on their furniture, so people wouldn't be over-stimulated or aroused by the sight of a table's naked legs limbs?

    A few cannon on Bunker Hill could completely shut down Boston Harbor. A few muskets on Breed's Hill could completely shut down the only land access to Bunker Hill (and the water access was not usable). So it all really does make sense.

    Apparently the Thai defense was a sea of holes.

    I would qualify that. Grace could reasonably deduce that "either Rhoda or Catalina" has size-change magic. But I don't think Grace has the evidence to determine, with any confidence, which one has that magic - or whether the other one knows about it. Confident enough to daydream about it - that takes no confidence at all. But confident enough to talk with Rhoda about it - no, I don't think so.

    The webcomic Lackadaisy, I think has a fairly high chance of such a depiction. I could never get into the story though.

    By the way, we know that Pandora's family tends to have an affinity for aberration-slaying spells... but that does not mean that everyone with that affinity is Pandora's family.

    I think most US colleges that require freshmen to live in dorms, make an exception for those who will still be living with their parents.
  9. Story Monday, May 27, 2019

    They are in the latter half of the senior year of high school. The time to be choosing colleges is early in senior year - or earlier. Nanase probably has several letters in hand telling her that various colleges would welcome her. Several of the others likely have at least one such letter.

    This version of Carol reminds me of a certain character in Neverwinter Nights. The sorceress who's escaping from the mage academy*. If you help her defeat the mages chasing her, they die at your feet and she thanks you and joins your company. If you ignore the mess, the mages chasing her die at your feet and she thanks you and joins your company. If you run away, the mages chasing her die at your feet and she thanks you and joins your company. And SHE'S A SELF-CENTERED TWIT! (If you try to help the mages chasing her, the game won't let you.) * If you know your D&D, you wonder what the heck a sorceress was doing at a mage academy**. Ignore that. ** In case you don't: sorcerers do magic instinctively; mages have to study it. Sending a sorcerer to a mage academy is like teaching a dolphin to dog-paddle and kick its feet. Mages, on the other hand, can do more powerful magic than sorcerers - eventually, when they get to higher levels.

    It didn't quite qualify as "random people". It was someone (a) she was already keeping secrets for and (b) knew was transformed in a way they liked and had at least a little experience with. Still, I'm pretty sure that Sam hadn't previously known that Grace knew anything about magic. Or about immortals. Now he not only knows that, he also knows that Grace can transform - and that there's something odd about her transformation as compared to his.

    It most certainly is, but I'll give them a pass on iceball planets. I still doubt that there's really only one biome, but WE won't care about the differences.
  13. NP Monday, May 20, 2019

    4) Just how little of the planet was seen? There are places in Arizona where there doesn't appear to be a very rich or diverse biosphere.

    In a totally unexpected twist, it will... tell the time.

    As of the last we've seen of Tedd's and Grace's bedrooms, they each have their own, and (at a minimum) attempt to maintain an appearance that they each sleep in their own room. But it's been a while. As for the "practically married" I don't think it's explicitly or primarily sex. I think it's more "there's no way those two are gonna end up not-together, unless one of them dies." Although a sub-component of "I bet they sleep together, in every sense, rather often" would be somewhat less than surprising.

    The main reason "first-generation biofuels" are a scam is gasohol. We still need a good way to break down cellulose and produce ethanol from it (most of our farm waste is quite high in cellulose), but aside from that, producing fuel-grade ethanol is actually pretty easy. You can distill to the necessary purity in a cheap solar-powered still. Then you need an engine and other systems designed for it - it tends to degrade some of the components often used in our petroleum-powered engines, and (unlike petroleum) it's a pretty poor lubricant. Producing ethanol pure enough to mix with gasoline is MUCH harder and more energy-intensive. The lower energy density of ethanol as compared to octane and other long-chain hydrocarbons will remain an issue for certain applications.

    Heck the entire Doom series, it would make perfect sense for you to have maps for most levels before you enter the first level... but you don't.

    The high school I attended was an older building that grew. I believe it had had at least four additions, and possibly five or six, onto the original structure. In addition the school library was in a much-newer adjacent building, and there were two other buildings with classrooms. There was one classroom that was in the main building but you couldn't get to it from inside the main building. Room numbers were a mess.

    As far as I'm concerned, no - I wouldn't buy a used camel from that man.
  20. Things You Find Amusing

    Snerk. "While the question itself wasn't necessarily stupid, it's clear the circumstances that apparently led you to have to ask it certainly were."

    Only two of the four students killed were definitely participating in the protests. The other two almost certainly were not, based on extant reports. One of the latter two was attending the school on an ROTC scholarship. As is typical of campus protests, the center of the protest was in front of one of the campus' major buildings and thus crossed several major routes between pairs of buildings. It was early afternoon on a Monday. There was plenty of legitimate reason for non-protesters to be in the area. And the university administration had put significant effort into spreading the word that the protest rally had been canceled, which would logically lead people to think there was no reason not to be in the area - until they got there and found it was happening anyway.

    I consider it somewhat unlikely (although certainly not impossible) that Susan has told anyone else about France. More likely, IMHO, she gave Sarah and/or Grace permission to pass the story on to the rest of the group. Which probably got done when Susan was elsewhere. As for Nanase & others knowing about Susan's awakening, many ways that could have happened, and they don't necessarily know it was angst-induced. (Although I suspect they do.)
  23. Story Friday, March 26, 2019

    I don't think Susan's fairies have been shown to talk, but Nanase's definitely have.

    And they're still in high school. A party on Friday evening or Saturday, to celebrate something on Thursday, seems not only plausible but likely.

    I don't see how the last panel shows that. (Note: I'm not disagreeing, or agreeing, with the notion that she's just reading it.) We don't see whether or not her hands are on the keyboard. I know that more than a few times I've written something, looked at it on the screen, and sighed.
