Re: Occupy Wall Street - Spreading. Check your town.

The article did say that the camp was being reconstructed elsewhere by government officials (but not where), so perhaps the protest can continue at a similarly prominent but less disruptive venue. If a protest isn't disruptive at all, it's not really an effective protest, is it? I mean, it can't ac...

Re: 0965: "Elements"

I don't think it's similar enough to apply to Avatar. The Chinese cycle is WOOD, Fire, Earth, METAL, and Water (not necessarily in that order). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_Xing Considering most viewer would probably not know about Taoism and other traditional Chinese philosophy I wouldn't expec...

Re: Magic : The Gathering : The Thread : The Rename

Amusement of the day was someone managing to get Ludevic's Abomination out, only to have me keep tapping it with my Avacynian Priest. That's one badass priest. I love that card so much. At my prerelease I got triple Avacynian Priest. Tappy tappy! I tapped down someone's trampler-mill-yourself-for-t...

Re: 0965: "Elements"

And to ofMars , yes the Moon's still there even though you can't see it but I believe it has more to do with the planetary alignment cycle. It's not like they can't use their power during the day. Yeah, but whether or not the moon is "full" has nothing to do with how close it is to the pl...

Re: 0965: "Elements"

BTW, I wonder if the AvatarTLB movie is considered suckage because of the movie sucking, or just because Shaylaman directed it... The former. It was just really, really bad. To be expected, when they try to conduct a season's worth of episodes into one short film. Characterization suffers hugely, a...

Re: 0965: "Elements"

I wonder if Redcloak will call Mr. Jones and Mr. Phil Rodriguez or just be happy that he isn't the only one listened his chemistry classes. Nice obscurity combo, bro. Speaking of the playground, there's a d20 homebrew project I participated in a few years ago to make playable bending classes. They ...

Re: Give Me School Advice -Redux-

At this point, I would say it has a lot to do with your social capital. If you can manage it now, experience would probably trump education, but depending on the connections the school and it's program has, you might be better off getting a degree because of the connections that you'd make that coul...

Re: Undergraduate Applications: Making a "Short List"

Truly stupid but that's how it works. You could of course break the cycle by going with early admission. I work for a college access program, and early admission/early decision can be problematic, depending on how that school defines it. If you've gone through the decision process far in advance, i...

Re: What is the deal with medical schools and community coll

It's going to largely depend on the quality of the community college - some are essentially high schools for kids that didn't manage to figure out high school while they were in high school. If your only purpose in going to a community college is purely based on the price tag, you might go there for...

Re: Tron Lightcycle

It also looks like it wouldn't be a terribly comfortable ride, but if we've learned anything from the forceFX lightsabers, it's that the joy of novelty trumps often actual functionality when it comes to most fans' spending money

It Exists: http://www.lockergnome.com/jfk/2011/09/28/tron-light-cycles-to-hit-local-streets/ Just thought it would be a perfect combo with Linux Users at Best Buy: http://xkcd.com/272/.
