    Some villains are, how can I put this ?, rather precious or thin skinned. So when Megiddio was mocked by actor Neil Ripsworth on Howard Stern's show, the villain lost his rag completely. Instead of merely kidnapping the actor and torturing him before a slow gruesome death Meggido blew up a two block radius just to be sure that he got Neil. Neil surprisingly was found still alive among the rubble by rescue services and heroes who raced to the scene searching for survivors.
    Neil was rushed to hospital but his situation was deteriorating. One of the heroes was able to bend reality just a bit but this would only postpone the inevitable. The heroes were able to come up with a solution but they put it to Neil's consciousness first. They could save his brain but nothing else. Neil who had been shocked by the devastation agreed and so it was that he was transferred into a new cyborg body. Calling himself Hamlet Neil has taken up heroing and is being trained by the heroes and will try to find out what happened and why. Neil has a tendency to quote from plays but Shakespeare's work is all most people recognise.
    Meggido in the meantime is amazed that no-one knows he was responsible and has no idea that Neil still lives

    I don't know what happened to the picture--my apologies.  Anyway, I like this version of the character the best, so Quackhell gets to post a pic in response to my disappeared pic.

    It's essentially a con.
     
    My experience is that it's either subconscious* or deliberate manipulation of the planchette by one or more participants. It's extremely easy to send the planchette exactly where you want it to go, especially if the other participants are putting more force from their fingers on it. This may seem counter-intuitive, but more force downward results in a translation of force away from that person. It's then just a matter of lightly steering the planchette to whatever area of the board you want. And if you are good at cold reading (or know the "mark" well), you can tailor your answers to reinforce certain psychological beliefs that the others hold, which makes it extremely easy to freak out people, and consequently extend the control of the planchette.

    I think it's way too early to count out any of the Big Five (Sanders, Warren, Biden, Buttigieg, Klobuchar). And we haven't seen how voters respond to Bloomberg. One thing for sure, this race isn't going to be a coronation.
     
    I would like to like Biden more than I do. I value his experience. I don't hold his past compromises against him; I don't trust ideological rigidity. But his mind seems fraying, beyond his usual fumblemouth. And the argument for him to be front-runner never reached much beyond, "It's his turn now."
     
    Buttigieg talks a good game, and clearly he is very intelligent, but he just doesn't have the experience or the coattails to carry other candidates in other races. Sanders has the movement; Biden has the Establishment cred. Buttigieg has just himself.
     
    Bloomberg... I just don't know. The picture of a billionaire trying to buy his way in offends me, but at least he has real experience: Mayor of New York City is nearly as good as head of state for most countries. I hear he's racked up a lot of endorsements from other mayors, which means that as president he'd have a cadre of allies to help him implement policies and pressure others to go along. I wish I'd seen him on the debate stage, to get a sense of his mind.
     
    Not a fan of Warren. Kind of liking Klobuchar. Steyer should go away (but leaqve his checkbook, esp. to fund down-ballot races). I too would like to see Yang in some sort of cabinet post, along with many of the other early droppers-out, to help build the Democratic field for future races.

    Saw this posted on Facebook and thought I'd pass it along.  Not only are the images useful for medieval/fantasy maidens, but the fact that this young woman taught herself to make them is proof that your superhero characters can learn to make their own costumes through patience and effort, just as she did.
