  1. I'd have preferred seeing George keep a George-ish size, just a feminine version, instead of giving her a skinny waist like that. And maybe keep Tensaided his proper age, which is noticeably older than our protagonists. I agree they don't look much like their male selves. A bit disappointing, but then transformed characters are often unrecognizable as themselves.

    Reminds me of a scene where the bad guy thanks the superheroine for flying around above everyone while wearing a skirt....

    Maybe it will next shrink her when Sarah approaches, only to have her grow back to full size as she rolls? Or maybe it will make Sarah temporarily bigger?

    Heh. I think that's an entirely different test than one to see if you are worthy to enter the crypt.
  5. This Day In History

    Got some catching up to do! Oct 1, 1887 = Friday ;-P The Celtics? Another Friday. Perhaps the expression needs modification? ;-) Whoops, maybe not, that's a Saturday.... My family went shortly after Epcot opened. It seemed crowded then, but considering the very longest lines were a bit over an hour, and the wait time for a couple of Avatar rides on my last visit were closer to four hours than three, I guess it wasn't so bad then. I remember when Nickelodeon was non-commercial. And had an actual nickelodeon, being cranked by a mime, for their station IDs. Nick cannot scoff at anyone else, ever. A mime! There were some interesting theories going around for a while that Peshtigo, Chicago, and several other fires that same day were started by a meteor that broke up into pieces which landed across the midwest and started the fires. Trouble is, meteorites don't generally start fires, they're cool by the time they land. If it were London, it would be aliens. Isn't that usually the other way round, re cold water making things more or less prominent? ;-) No permanent bases in the moon? Even if they're peaceful? I think I'm a little outraged, too! I remember driving past that on our big California trip! That, we got to see, but not Meteor Crater?? Aw, c'mon, Dad! Even the crooks had more integrity back then. Or at least cared about that part of their image more. I just have to speak up on this one. Those men and women got more right that most of us will ever get right or wrong in our lives. People struggled and died to get them up there, and then on to the moon. I'm with the xkcd guy on this one....they deserve our utmost respect. It's London. Wizards would be up in Scotland in their castle. In London, it's aliens and Time Lords. People talk about "as slow as molasses" -- well, apparently, molasses can flood a city at 35 mph. Killed 21, injured 150 in Boston. They're ahead if us on so many things.... I thought of Dagobah, myself. Not as easy a joke, though. Ah, yes, Seward's Folly, one of two such deals, the other being the Louisiana Purchase. Bite your tongue! (Or whatever the typing equivalent is) Yay Downton Abbey! Yay Sherlock! Too late, you already made it. But you'd be surprised how the law defines things -- there are a lot of laws which refer to "animal" in such a way that it doesn't include, say, birds or lizards. First so far as you know, anyway. ;-) "Ah, Jack, if ye'd fought like a man, ye needn't be hanged like a dog!" Mary Reade and Anne Bonney went above to fight while the men were all cowering and/or drunk down below. There's a guacamole for sale at Trader Joe's called "Avocado's Number"! Should've asked the natives whether to trust our treaties. The Olympic, of course, being the sister ship to the Titanic. Guess it's better to witness a sinking than to participate.
  6. Things you have no idea how to feel about

    Yeah, we had a kitten at work for at least a month. A client found him inside her engine -- she said they had to take the battery out to get to him. No harm done despite the ride, so we took him in, and he gradually went from people petting him, to holding him, to getting loose occasionally, to being let loose to have the run of the place just likethe cat who lives there. Several staff members considered taking him, but it wasn't quite right for any if them, and eventually he was adopted and went to his new home. Miss the little furball!
  7. Things That Make You Happy

    New doggie! Mickey is eight or nine years old, and his original owners had to give him up because he had bladder stones and they couldn't afford the surgery to remove them. He went from the Anti-Cruelty Society to another rescue, to Young At Heart, a place that specializes in older pets. And thus to me! He has to be on a prescription diet so he doesn't make more stones, but as a vet, I can at least get that at cost, so it's not as much of a burden as it would be for most other owners (that was a stumbling block to getting adopted at least a couple of times). He's sweet, and energetic, and loves walks, and is very snuggly and loves everyone. He is a bit shy of other dogs, but not in a biting aggressive way, just a moving-away way; and now that he's settled in he tends to bark at new people or opening doors a bit, but not to a point it's a problem. I feel very, very lucky to have gotten such a great dog! (He's also one of the reasons I haven't been on as much for a bit, but we're settling into a routine now and despite going on more walks, which also makes me happy, I think I'll be keeping up with the boards better now!)
  8. Video Game Discussion 4

    Just to show how cutting-edge a gamer I am, I just started playing Pokemon GO. I didn't have a cell that could handle it until recently. Gives me a second reason to do more walking (see Happy thread for the first!) and I'm slowly learning how to play.
  9. Shipping News

    Sounds like a lot of kinky/vanilla marriages -- the kinky member usually has some sort out outlet, be it a steady Dom/me or a series of one-time encounters, so that the vanilla partner doesn't have to participate. Sometimes there are rules, such as no sexual contact, but not always. You make it sound like Justin did something to her. They had one attempted encounter, and Justin never deliberately led her on or made any promises that would have matched the fantasy expectations she apparently had built up in her head. Melissa is the one who built up everything in her head with too little basis. It was a bad match, but neither one did anything to the other. Individuals don't generally think about such things when developing relationships, nor when sneaking in a quick mating while their partner's usual mate isn't looking. It happens all the time in nature. Biologists refer to "sneaky fuckers" (or more polite versions in more formal settings), often males who look like females so they can get to a more masculine male's girl(s) without being driven away. The female is usually a willing participant in the deception. That means both sides are being poly in their mating habits -- males seek out extra females to mate with, and females attract extra males to mate with. We're finding that even animals we used to think of as mating for life, actually can "get a divorce" or sneak around on each other while still acting like lifemates towards each other. Not really. As well as other methods of passing along property and wealth, many cultures see genetic relatedness as only one factor in choosing an heir, and not really all that important a factor. In Japan, it's quite common for a business owner getting close to retirement to choose an heir, someone experienced and capable of running the company but a generation younger, and adopt that person so that they can inherit the business instead of having to buy it or be given it as a gift and owe far more taxes etc. than if it were "kept within the family."

  11. ....because he thought everyone else, from the Ancient Greeks on up to the then-present day, had all somehow gotten the math wrong, and that the world was actually several thousand miles diameter smaller than we knew darn well it was. If there hadn't been s big honkin' continent in the way, his crews would have dies of hunger and thirst as their supplies would never have lasted far enough to reach India etc., given he'd only planned and supplied for the much shorter distance to the Indies that he was expecting thanks to his bad math. Also, he never actually set foot on said continent, so really he only discovered some islands.
  12. Wow, is that really that unusual?
  13. I'm gonna guess the one that can fly is Elliot, although I'm not ruling out it being Nanase, carrying Ellen.... Great job with the expressions on their faces!
  14. Story Friday October 26 2018

    I love Dan's commentary about whether to leave out the swearing or not. I suspect Rhoda will be even less likely to get detention for her outburst than angry-Diane or angry-Susan would be. She looks scary! I do hope it's only temporary....although Rhoda going off on a long furious rant is appealing too....like watching a kitten being fierce!

    Me too! It's well worth making this a Sunday-newspaper-comic sized NP.
