  1. On another note...

    Holy #$#$! China is making threatening moves towards both Tawain and Vietnam...

    meanwhile, Putin seems to be wanting to take another bite out of the Ukraine, possibly as a distraction as much as dreams of USSR reclamation


    And some theorizing it's coordinated (But I don't know if that's bull or not) to stretch the US so thin we can't help either .. even if we want to, which is questionable.


    Any of you folks with better international insight than I got some straight dope on this?

  2. Well, the dementia in my Housemate's mother is no longer even a frequent visitor, it is now pretty much a resident. Only now, that she is insisting dead people are still alive, or that the house was moved 200 miles (it was not) to this new location, etc do the medical authorities finally seem to admit she is in no state to be housed at a place with stairs and those untrained in how to provide. Not that will make it any more affordable to get her into a decent memory care facility, but at least we may be able to bankrupt her in getting that care before they bankrupt themselves.


    Still, if all goes well, early June is the SOONEST she will be finally be getting the full time care she needs.


    Or dead. As she keeps trying to ignore everyone, and pack to drive off only to fall (Last night she got a nasty head gash and a short visit to the ER before they shoved her back here), it's possible she's going to kill her self on the steps first.



  3. "Are we sure realty hasn't been disrupted somehow?" The blond man was tall, but he'd been taller - much taller. Of course, he'd also been much shorter.


    The woman with him patted his arm, "I'm scanned the time lines repeatedly and used my own analytical intellect and found nothing odd. See, this is why the therapist thought you needed a Fresh start, some place with Fresh Air, and that's just why we're here."


    "Right, I need to cut down on the science for a bit," Her husband smiled, "And I guess it won't get more science free than a farm"


    "In a quaint small town no less," his wife, smiled too and artificial though the material the teeth were made of, the expression was genuine.


    "Yeah, "  He breathed in that fresh air, "I can feel the stress leaving me already, I love you, Brainiac Pym"

    "And I love you," She nuzzled, "Farmer Pym"


    Lead: Hank Pym!




    Partner: Brainiac 8 aka Indigo


  4. Between my TT group breaking up, and HC going down I haven't gamed Champions in years. :( Much sadness.


    I do see some folks are using the option for Clubs for games on this very site. I considered it but the idea hit some snags and then RL slammed me, but you might find something you like there if it's open?

    Promise of Blood by Brian McClellan.  It was entertaining, with a fairly diverse set of characters.  Napoleonic setting with magic.  As the industrial revolution takes hold, a new sort of magic is appearing: powder mages. They can snort gunpower like cocaine to become superhuman (also addictive like cocaine), plus they can control bullets, redirect energy from exploding gunpowder, and more. great fun.


    I gave this a shot and found I liked it. Good mix of action and intrigue. I second the suggestion for those of you out there who like Boomsticks with your fantasy

  6. alas, no fiction...


    Blaster Pick: Black Canary (Dinah Drake)



    Option 2: Green Lantern Corps Ring 


    Option 3: Monster Society of Evil (at least all that aren't specifically picked)



    Target: The Philippines


    The Mission: Stop Mr. Mind, foil his evil plan to use Miss America as a atomic weapon and to empower the Imperial Army soldiers with molecular manipulation from her, free the many POWS and natives... and watch in Annoyance as some General walks on the shore boasting about how HE has returned.

    In a recent poll, 46% of Republicans say they would leave the GOP and join a new party if Donald Trump started one.


    I really hope the remaining 54%, half say they would not leave the Republican party and half are undecided.


    Other than effectively giving Democrats with the next few elections, what would the long-term effects of this kind of split of the Republican Party be?


    Tennessee has at least one Senator go to the Trump party is my prediction. The 'regular' republicans , instead of standing strong, try to placate by being Trump LITE but still more authoritarian than they were. Democrats sigh and now come in THIRD place

    I've been in the hospital for the past few days, so I may have to drop out of this one. Just feeling very sick. Sorry about that.



    I hope you feel better soon and hope you don't have to drop out but understand if you need to. If you want, and assuming you trust me, and if our Comish for this draft is okay with it, you can PM me your list and I will try to draft for both of us?
