Re: Just a vampire 2012-12-20

I'm frankly more concerned (after getting over the yuck factor of the skinning bit) with Unfortunately, good intentions can still be dangerous. What does she mean. Why does she even say that? Anything to do with anyone else from the cast? M? Euryale? Pratt and McBride as doorme... doorwomen to the ...

Time Travel Vocabulary!

Ref: Thread for 12/19/12. So, time travelers would need a variety of tenses beyond Standard English. For those not native speakers, here's the list of normal verb tenses in English, before we get on to the needed "expanded" list. (Thanks to the Purdue OWL for the list of current tenses) Simple Prese...

VEI7. Oh my. So Brandi set up Mazama , then? Cubic kilometers of mass ejected. Wowza. Oh, and the scale is open-ended, but logrithmic. So a VEI17 is possible, but would eject the approximate volume of the Earth from the volcano - inside out planet? (Math: VEI8 is 1E3 cubic km, VEI17 would be 1E12 cu...

Re: It's not a laser WEAPON, unfortunately

Given that I'm moving to Texas shortly, this is good information for me to have. I guess I'll need to get an ID card for when I'm riding (I often don't carry my wallet), in addition to a new driver's license. Texas has a lot of room, you can move in a tall fashion...

Re: It's not a laser WEAPON, unfortunately

Some stuff, like helmet laws, varies city to city so make sure to ask when you get here. Helmets are never optional (just my opinion). My brain is my most valuable organ, so I'll be wearing the bucket whenever I'm riding :). I'm going to be unemployed on arrival (anyone in the Fort Worth area know ...

Re: It's not a laser WEAPON, unfortunately

In College Station proper, there are bike lanes which bikes must be in, and you must have lights when driving after dark. Cops on bikes can and *WILL* ticket you, and they will demand a state issued photo ID to pin it on you. While they can't demand a driver's license, every adult in the state of T...

I'd like to note that everything I've said can only be applied to New York State (outside NYC) and Marlyand. The laws also change based on speed limit in some jurisdictions.

Re: It's not a laser WEAPON, unfortunately

How's this: we hold motorists responsible for their conduct around bicycles (following too close, passing in the same lane, crossing a double yellow to pass, etc) the same as around cars. We also make it so if a cyclist over 16 is seen to be violating traffic laws (and yes, many states have specifi...
