    Jokes

    A physics teacher, an engineering teacher, and a shop class teacher all get on a plane. As they're getting comfortable, the pilot comes in over the intercom. "Good evening ladies and gentlemen," he says, "I understand we have some teachers on our flight. We've got a special treat for them: the plane we're sitting in was actually constructed by their students!" The physics teacher and the engineering teacher look at each other, shriek, and start beating on the locked door. Meanwhile, the shop class teacher is lounging in his seat, cool as a cucumber.

  5. "Water is wet" is dead on. Good article, but it confirms more than anything. I honestly think that's where a lot of the outrage is in this country. The two sets of law and rules. People KNOW life's not fair, what is pissing them off is that our governments and the laws the produce seem to set things up as much as it can for MAXIMUM unfairness. "Corporations are people, my friend" but I've yet to see a corporation executed in Texas even when its actions cost lives. A rich kid kills four people drunk driving, has it blamed on Afluenza, and gets less jail time

  6. The Chamber of 1,000 Deaths This vast room has all sorts of mechanical traps and could be described as a wet dream for Edgar Allan Poe. There are pits with spikes at the bottom, pits with spikes on the walls and the bottom, swinging pendulums with axe blades, swing pendulums with bludgeons, walls that crush together slowly, walls that crush together rapidly and presses that impact the floor with some velocity. There are also ghostly figures that can be seen who appear to have been killed by various of the traps. From whichever entrance one reaches the chamber, an exit cannot b

  9. Well, just glancing through the Champions Powers book (which I highly recommend for character build inspiration and speedup) at the "Darkness Powers" category, I see a variety of projected Darkness builds; a brace of ranged damaging attacks including those that blind a target or render them unconscious; bindings or barriers of "solid shadow"; induced fear in someone touched by the darkness; becoming Invisible when in shadows; Teleporting between areas of shadow; and Clairsentience out of areas in darkness.

    In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?' She responded, 'Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.' The

    An electrician, a bricklayer, and a welder are sitting on a high rise scaffolding on their lunch break. They all open their lunches to find baloney sandwiches. The electrician sighs and says "I hate baloney, my wife knows I hate baloney, yet every day I end up with this sandwich. If I get one more of these, I'm jumping off this building." The bricklayer agrees with him, saying "You know what, I feel the same way. I'm tired of this bland lunch every day. One more of these and I'm jumping off after you. The welder chimes in as well, saying "I hate this sandwich, too. I'm with you

  16. Now I am bit out of date here, but in broad strokes this is fast overview of how things work. In Basic training every sailor receives a very basic introduction to the overall Navy. This includes basic structure as well as an intro to shipboard life and very basic critical skills such as general shipboard firefighting and damage control. From basic most sailors will then go on to their Rating’s A School. Ratings are how the Navy defines a person’s job. The list of ratings has changed over time as technology has changed. Some Ratings have been retired and some are “ne

  24. (Hope this works for you, Bolo (and others)) "Everyone, sit down, grab some popcorn," I told them. It was not a request and they gave me the cautious side eye as I and Ariana handed out the popcorn bags and small bowls out. Hussar especially looked guarded, like he was ready for that punch I wanted to give him earlier, or maybe the chewing out he deserved. I suppose, on some level, they're not too far apart. I read somewhere that we are often wired to take corrections as an attack, something to do with instinctive concerns with our place in a tribal hierarchy.

    An Irishman took his son to the bar on his birthday to buy him his first drink. The father bought his son a stout, but he didn't like it and didn't want to drink it. The father decided to drink it for him and ordered an ale instead. He didn't like it either. So, the father drank it and ordered him a cider. Lager, cider, cream ale... he didn't like any of them, so the father drank them and ordered whiskey instead. He didn't like any of the Irish whiskeys the father ordered, so the old man drank them and decided to give up.

    Yeah, Bloomberg had a story earlier this week that local coffee houses aren't surviving...and the Evil Scum of the Water of Life, aka Starbucks, is getting further entrenched. Have to figure that's gonna happen with book stores (if you even have a local book store) and restaurants. It's already happened here, WRT package liquor...because the county has a set, VERY limited number of liquor licenses. So, Wal Mart has 4; Walgreens has 2 or 3; Albertson's has 3; Pic Quik (gas and quickie mart) has several. That was separate; the big stores just consistently offered too much for the small,

    Do you mean the tritium (hydrogen-3)? It's probably tied up in water molecules (heavy water), and then diluted by the other seawater. Tritium is naturally found in the environment in small quantities, and tends to get processed out of the body fairly rapidly. It has a half-life of about 12.3 years, and the decay produces beta radiation. It's used in some luminescent markers for watches and gun sights.

    Fear AOE?

    You agree that LOS only applies to Mind Control as far as targeting it. It is the same with AOE powers. You don't require a sense to damage targets with a fiery explosion, and you do not to affect them with a radius fear effect. There is no special rule with Mental Powers requiring the effect to have LOS, just as you agree with as far as Mind Control. p.148 And there it is. Conventional barriers don't stop Mental Powers. So as long as you can target the area, you can affect everyone in the area.

  35. My wife passed away near the end of September 11 years ago. One of her favorite holidays was Halloween, and so we decided to hold her wake on that night. I rented out the clubhouse here at my townhome complex, and some very good friends gathered to eat, drink a bit, and reminisce about their favorite things about her. After a while, it became a little warm, and so we opened the clubhouse doors to get a little of the cool, crisp late October air. A few minutes later, a little kid in costume stood in the doorway, and said, "Trick or Treat!" An old friend of ours looked at me and smiled as we bot

  37. Its a Minor transform per the rules: its making physical changes to the character beyond simple color changes etc. Cosmetic turns blonde hair into red, or a velvet cloth to a linen one. Function is utterly unchanged, only sensory input is affected. Minor would make blonde hair into bald or velvet cloth into a pile of leaves. The function changes but the game effect is minor.

    Equipment vs Powers

    This one! I LOVE THIS ONE!! Warning: I’m up a little late and when that happens I tend to ramble. So I’ve put my answer to your question up front, where it’s easy to see: Answer 1: It actually doesn’t matter as long as you’re consistent. You’d be surprised how much punishment the HERO system can take and still put out a balanced game experience. To go back to @Ninja-Bear, it’s easiest to make all weapons free, because the cost was paid by the player when they invested in the Martial Art to use it. For example, Kusari-Gama. If I pick one of those up, I’m going to
