    I was born in the summer of my 27th year. I went home to a place I'ld never been before. There, on Ventura highway in the sunshine, the days were longer and the nights were stronger than moonshine.

  1. Q: What was Professor Challenger saying about diplodocus and the fourth one out? A: I believe the extinction of the dinosaur was due to a slight miscalculation in the rules they used for baseball.
  2. Q: What do you call this place, other than your seedy, little apartment? A: Just my luck, the only airbnb's at my destination are in a tent city.
  3. Q: What was Dan Aykroyd saying about those skull-shaped bottles? A: H.P.'s penmanship is so bad I can't tell if this is his new manuscript or the notes from last night's performance of Othello.
  4. I think the point about casting a teenage heartthrob and turning this into Batman/Twilight is probably on target. Hollywood refuses to spend money on a new story because they can make money with the same old story time and time again. It could be worse... or maybe it is, is there anyone that can verify we won't be seeing Black Widow/Hunger Games in May?
  5. Let's get some of the youngsters involved. Every team needs a good con artist, call in Ferris Bueller . And, if he can figure out how to operate the umbrella/spell-n-speak/rotary saw blade/record player, Elliot could be useful as long as he phones a friend.
  6. I don't know, the dystopian nightmare that is reality has some promise (translation - I long for the relief that death will bring). The only one my grandma ever made was Fried Chicken With Mashed Potatoes How about a battle of the second stringers.... Matt Helm vs Derek Flint
  7. The hero carries a stereo cassette deck with him, when combat starts he uses his first phase to set it down and turn it up. FWIW, I've had NPC's do this and played the Carl Douglas tune for the players at the table so they would get the full effect.
  8. Q: What sort of reply will he get, shouting at the microphone like that? A: Somebody find Dad's glasses, he's shouting "breaker one nine this here's the Rubber Duck, Uh you got a copy on me Pig Pen C'mon" at the mouse again.
  9. Personally, I'd go with the END Reserve/Slow Recovery option. It's true that this doesn't enforce "five minutes active, one hour cool down" with rigid precision. However, setting the power and END Reserve up to approximate that idea and using RP to model what remains would work for me. In fact, I'm going to incorporate the idea in "Frogboy" as soon as possible: Frogboy has a five SPD, so will have twenty-five phases in a five minute period, however, I'll just RP him as being able to use his Mechano-Froglegs for five minutes at a time, with an hour between uses to cool down the pneumatic chamber and refill the air tank. Cost 6 points Mechano-Froglegs: Leaping +21m (25m forward, 12 1/2m upward) (11 Active Points); OIF (-1/2), no Noncombat movement (-1/4) costs 1 END Cost 11 points Endurance Reserve (25 END, 25 REC) Reserve: (25 Active Points); REC: (18 Active Points); Slow Recovery 1 Hour (-4)
  10. Q: How do you really feel about the President's Independence Day Parade? A: Because stupidity is such a big target it's always easier to hit.
  11. Q: Don't you want somebody to love? A: Love hurts.
  12. Q: Have you ever been to the Debutante Ball? A: Don't ask me, I can't even remember yesterday's lunch.
  13. Q: What did the warden say to Grond the last time they caught the poor guy? A: You've barely been gone long enough to be missed, but we did watch the Game of Throwns finale without you.
  14. Q: Did you see what happened the last time the Duggers played croquet? A: Those are some wicked wickets.
