Re: That was Me 2019-11-20

And it's some evidence that the Olympians and their kids might be a bit less status-conscious than mermaids. I mean, can you imagine what Jessie's mother would have said, if she'd ever learned that Jessie was hanging out with a half-ogre? :shock: Oh, the rantings about shame and social propriety!!!...

Re: Wapsi Square Angry Castela Print

Eh, she certainly has the potential to be very dangerous, but I don't really see her lashing out at bystanders. Just at people who she thinks are trying to hurt her or to hurt people she wants to protect. So if a teacher scolded her for acting up, I doubt that they would be in any danger from Castel...

Re: More Stuff

.22, if you're good enough for head shots, is great for that sort of thing. Leaves the pelt and most meat intact. Mind you, if you're going to do that, just use a pellet gun. They're not exactly known for being tough (not like possum, which requires a 30-30 to get a heart shot) I know a guy who tri...

Re: What Chemical is on Tina's t-shirt?

If it's C8H10N4O2, it would be caffeine, which would make sense. It's a proportional rather than structural nomenclature, so while it could be caffeine, it could also be dozens of different molecules. Caffeine does indeed make the most sense, though. Except. . . If you keep the same atoms but rearr...

Re: More Stuff

I'm gonna get into hunting small game this winter, focusing on rabbits and squirrels. Anyone got any good recipes for either one? Trapping them will usually give you more meat than shooting at them will (and will give you more useful pelts if that matters), but if you do that you want to remove the...

Re: Need To Hide 2019-11-13

"So they don't find us"? Creepy, much? I'm not really getting a worried vibe from the kid, I'm getting more of a "we're playing a fun game!" impression. As though they're having a fun, not quite sanctioned by the adults adventure and hide-and-seek. Whether or not anybody else finds it fun, of cours...

Haven't a clue, though I think we can eliminate a few possibilities (probably not siren, succubus, vampire, or demigod). I was just hypothesising.

It could still be the "stone tape" thing, if Mindy happens to have some sort of ability to connect with and build on the "memories". Maybe the recording starts, her mind subconsciously incorporates the information, and then her perception of reality is changed and her mind builds a new reality that ...

Not as bad as the guy I knew who would take pork fatback, deep fry it in melted fat, slather it with butter, and then eat that as his meal.

Armistice took effect 11/11/1918. Or is there something about the 1919 date I am unaware of? There's always something!
All that heavy use of LSD in the 1960's caused one of the years in that decade to skip. Scientists have yet to figure out how to re-insert it back into the timeline.

Re: On The Landing 2019-10-28

Mindy, and Hiroshi, at Tanagra. But not at Camelot, because that would be silly. Forgive me if I'm mistaken, but in my experience ghosts that have full torso manifestation normally don't make loud "thunk" noises, that's more a poltergoose, which also don't have any visible manifestation. This lends...

And I've decided to finally let everyone know that there won't be any new Jasper updates after this one. I had to say goodbye to her last month. I'm sorry to hear that you won't have your friend around any longer. But at least you had her around for all the time that you did, and you gave her a goo...

Yeah, I was once asked to drive. . .I think it was a Honda or Hyundai 4-door sedan of some type. It wasn't supposed to be a compact car, just a "normal sized" one. I pushed the seat all the way back and down, the steering column all the way up, and tried to get in. Space was so tight that I could on...

When the kids were all talking in the school hallway about the trip to the mansion, she wasn't quite so hiding, either.

This is not Valerie's best day. Or month. Or school year, for that matter. Well, we don't really know what her previous school years were like. "Hey, we made it to mid-term with only 30% fatalities this year!" An eldritch horror who's afraid of ghost stories? Maybe she's hiding away in that little ...

Some things are left unshaken for a reason. If fulminate of mercury is shock-sensitive, what about fulminating Aphrodite descendant?

And I do hope that Barbara at least got Nudge's permission before using her to prod Mindy. That would be rude otherwise.
