  1. When I had my knee issue, the pain kept me awake also until i developed a routine.. Tough it out during the day to buiild up some tolerance and take your pain meds about an hour before bedtime so, they're just kicking in as you fall asleep. They'll stay in your system longer and you may be able to get a full night in.
  2. Why does this not surprise me in the least?
  3. Actually, the NCAA itself makes it's money almost purely from the NCAA Basketball tournament ( 867.5 M including TV rights) and ticket sales to Championship games( 177.9 M). All the regular season money from all sports and conference networks is kept by the schools. So cancelling the tourney this year took more than 80% of their revenue. The breakdown on how it's spent can be found here: http://www.ncaa.org/about/where-does-money-go The NCAA is a confusing morass of contradictory goals and uneven rulings but they actually do have some principles.
  4. The NCAA doesn't actually govern Division 1 college football nor do they derive funding from it. That's all on the schools at the highest levels. I'm no NCAA fan but they showed that they do care somewhat about people over money when they cancelled the NCAA basketball tournament which provides the majority of their revenue.
  5. Anime gives the best example I've encountered. If you haven't watched Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, check it out. Tech level is late gaslight(closer to WW1) and the magic is not so powerful that men with guns can't compete with all but the most powerful characters.
  6. Never said I'd allow such a construct, but just presenting a RAW method(totally different from a fair and balanced method). Note that making it take 64 segment(1 min, 04 seconds) just ups the cost to 65 points. Severe Transform 0 1/2d6, Damage Over Time, Target's defenses only apply once, Lock out (cannot be applied multiple times) (33-64 damage increments, damage occurs every Segment, +5 1/2) (65 Active Points) Hideously overpowered, sure. Legal by RAW, also sure. Constructs like this are what GM's are for.
  7. Easy using 6th and not really expensive. Transform is inherently Cumulative. Mutant Cure: Severe Transform 0 1/2d6 (Mutant into Normal Human, Reversal Medical Treatment), Damage Over Time, Target's defenses only apply once, Lock out (cannot be applied multiple times) (33-64 damage increments, damage occurs every 5 Minutes, can be negated by Antidote; +3 1/2) (45 Active Points) One injection that will do 128 BODY over the course of 5 hours and 20 minutes while only being subject to Power Defense once. Damage Negation is probably ineffective although Damage Reduction at the 1/2(possibly) or 3/4(likely) will make a target immune.
  8. Probably a tower outage, or you could have gone over your limit for the month and be getting slowed down by your carrier. Unlimited data does not usually mean unlimited at the top speed.
  9. Guess that means they'll start with rice instead of wheat or corn.
  10. Baseball has recorded profits during this decade and the value of franchises climb at astounding rates. Meanwhile the owners keep their books shut and player salaries have stagnated as a whole.. Even though i generally disagree with Scott Boras, he makes a sound case. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/29234956/agent-scott-boras-tells-clients-not-bail-baseball-owners
  11. At a guess, all of them. It's hardly an uncommon thing.
  12. I'll listen to these arguments when the the leader of the anti vote by mail, the POTUS himself, stops voting by mail.
  13. But nothing in your example says that Professor Plastic has Damage Reduction. Your example is a detailed description of the SFX of the Professor's defenses. He could have high PD, Damage Reduction, Damage Negation or just really high STUN or some combination. None of those powers are visible. You can infer that PP has one or more from the results of your attack but it doesn't limit the defenses. To qualify for Visible -1/4, Angry Smash Man would have to see and recognize the power before he attacks.
  14. If John Oliver provokes such a rant as a comedian, what is your opinion of the "journalists" doing opinion shows on FOX News.
  15. I wouldn't worry about it. You won't need it against equal opponents and the really powerful ones(thinking 1 villain vs group here) will not be bothered by it. Your character has an OCV of 5 with the proposed action so just hitting will no be a gimme. Any flyer( no damage), teleporter or leaper(both reduce damage) will be able to mitigate it. You're throwing them up so they don't begin to fall until the next Segment. There is also the real possibility you will have isolated yourself into single combat against a more powerful foe.
