    The Revolutionary War re-enactors will be watching you already, and the SCA has some experience with murder.....might just need a Mensan to solve it....

    You get a first draft with the Articles of Confederation. Don't sweat it.
  3. What Are You Listening To?

    Did some driving this weekend, and listened to Car Talk and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me podcasts. Car Talk is all reruns now, but there's so many years of shows they can keep doing reruns for a long time. The only clue to when a show was made is the years given for the cars they talk about. Do they react to the '94 Escort as if it's a fairly new car, or an antique? Are parts getting hard to find for the '74 Gremlin? (Were they ever not?) Most of the fun of the show is the people, not the cars, and they don't change much. Plus the Puzzler, of course, that's fun too, and they've been doing a good job of either putting them in order or splicing parts together so that they sound like they are.

    Um, "guy"? Monopoly was one half of The Landlords Game deisgned by Elizabeth Magie. The two halves of the game were meant to show the economic benefits of preventing monopolies, but the guy who stole the idea from her dropped the non-monopoly half. Parker Brothers bought the stolen version, then found out the truth and purchased the rights from Magie, but they only published the monopoly part.
  6. Three Word Game

    "EXTERMINATE!" rang out
  7. Pandora's Aberration Apocalypse

    Holy crap, I can't believe I only just realized this! Magus said Helena and Demetrius were hounding him, even following him to France. Following him. Then, they get distracted by the Aberration that went after Susan, and then they got forcibly reset at some point after that. The two of them showed up back in Moperville, and started following Elliot around, even though they had no idea why they were doing so. Of course they didn't know why -- they were following the wrong version! Magus and Elliot are duplicates from alternate universes. Magus is a version of Elliot, Elliot is a version if Magus. In their recently-improperly-reset befuddlement, the first version they came across was Elliot, and they vaguely recalled that they'd bern following this guy, but since he wasn't an Aberration or any other sort of "didn't belong here," they assumed it was to protect him. Makes sense to me, at least!

    Oh, please, please let us do something else! Nope, not a big fan of complicated not-fully-explained and irrelevant-to-any-plot game mechanics.
  9. Things you have no idea how to feel about

    The Revolution didn't end until 1783! Quick, give TOH more hearts and trophies!!

    Hmm, I had thought that perhaps Pandora had bern in contact with Magus before her reset, and that's how she knew about the vampires at the Mall. I like the idea that she worked up a scheme with Magus, Helena, and Demitrius ahead of time to take care of Sirleck when he tries to take over the new Magus!
  11. Things That Are Just Annoying

    The Entomology department told the story of how Purina once held a contest, "If you can raise it, we can feed it!" which resulted in the development of Purina Cockroach Chow. (My sister always loved the idea of a version of the Purina Cat Chow commercials with the cat doing the chow-chow-chow dance, but with a cow....) I am at least a little surprised no company has yet applied the sort of know-how and research that's gone into creating all these pet foods, into creating a product for humans. The closest I've heard is Soylent, but that seems to be coming at it from stage zero, as opposed to building on decades of knowledge. My guess would be palatability is the problem -- people love food too much, and it's a rare person who is willing to give up eating everything else, like for those medically supervised liquid diets, even for a short time let alone for years. It would have to be something that was at least yummy enough to enjoy it!
  12. Story Wednesday March 14, 2018

    Sirleck didn't say how close the "lights in the sky" were, did he? If Helena and Demitirus were still following Sirleck and Magus, and Sirleck were immune to the effects of the Aberration-destruction because he's on a different plane while possessing Ellen, then H & D would have been hit by Pandora's spell and become lights in the sky very close to where they were driving at the relevant moment. They'd have left them behind pretty quickly if they were on an interstate, but they'd have been plenty close enough for Sirleck to feel like he'd dodged a bullet. And once the spell was over, they'd have to try to figure out where the car they'd been following went, if they were in any shape to do so.
  13. Things That Are Just Annoying

    With the dogs and cats, they have prescription diets that do a pretty good job preventing struvite and calcium oxalate stones from forming. Given how similar the nutritional needs of dogs and humans are, I wonder if they could turn the kibble and canned foods into some sort of "energy bar" and "shake" combo?
  14. The Album, and Other Music

    Without the settings on the outside, that background looks almost like Circular Gallifreyan! (This is a good thing, I think CG looks neat!)

    Happy birthday, Hack! Have some pie!
