Re: Diagnosis: Rocks in my Head

Or just have two sources of sound, and have them aligned and tuned just right so that the separate sound waves amplify around the salivary ducts while interfere and cancel out near the ears. I'm sure that we could get it all figured out with a minimal chance of accidentally liquefying his brain. wh...

Re: 12Dec2016 - The Last Time I used this particular PC

Dunkin Donuts is dead to me. I don't drink coffee. But i loved fresh baked doughnuts from DD. Now they have stale doughnuts baked in a factory somewhere. But it is better for their bottom line, in house baking takes up space and requires extra employees, making they at a centralized location is che...

i doubt that, because then she wouldn't need to worry about her car the time that Heather asked her out on the date. it implied that she was driving into work from elsewhere.

Not an AI - an SI. WIth enough computing power you can make it sound damn good. SImulated Intelligence wrapped around a data retrieval engine.

Re: Falling 2016-11-15

PronounceNames.com gives "lef-kaw-see-ah" as the pronunciation for Leucosia; no separate listing for the Leucoisa variant. Google search returns both spellings as proper names of sirens. I'd hazard a guess... "lef-ka-ee-sah". toe may toe, tah mah toe... for what it's worth, the way i'm hearing it i...

Re: Little Voice 2016-11-08

Just had a thought. This is Wapsiverse. Maybe those guns aren't using gunpowder. They might be using some wacked-out reverse-engineered Lanthian craziness, and the people firing said guns aren't normal people, but are instead themselves supernatural and thus capable of handling the enormous recoil....

One also finds it interesting that Atsali and Katherine, both sufferers from PTSD of similar variety, from similar causes, found each other by total coincidence, just in time to set out on an Adventure that starts both of them on the road to recovery. It's a work of fiction. There are no total coin...

I cant see her turning on them either but i can see her thinking herself a monster and bring death to those that try to take care of her or help her. And THAT'S why Phix got Lily out of the way by asking her to go to her study, most probably Phix's version of a "Panic Room", that's out of the way a...

The only possible way I could see to achieve those velocities for a DU round out of a sub gun is rail gun technology, but I doubt that because have you seen the SIZE of workable rail guns? Not a technology you could fit into a submachine gun. as far as "mundane" weapons tech that we get shown on TV...
