    There are multiple studies, I might have to double-check my sources.

    The Poral Bear one is probably a hoax though: Despite pop-culture depicting them with white fur, actual 'sightings' universally describe the creature with red fur.

    My demon slaying workout sessions have led to me listening to a lot more music, and given my taste in music this tends to have lead to listening to covers of anime songs.

    It's really cool seeing all the different ways people choose to localize these songs... and astounding that some people are just terrible at word choice sometimes!

    How appropriate, you fight like a colloid. I may find this joke less funny when it isn't 4 AM.
    NB: While I never mean to offend anybody, sometimes the unfortunate combination of Aspergersism and the inherent difficulty of reading a situation through uninflected text over the internet get in the way of that goal. Please feel free to point out any social faux pas, inappropriate joke timing, etc.

    All I'm saying is, carbon is carbon, and oxygen has, like, a bunch of protons, and everyone knows that hydrogen is a proton. So, for carbon dioxide, if we just sub in some hydrogens for one of the oxygens (since I just showed they're interchangeable, QED), and if we keep to the carbon bonding rules, that leaves us one carbon, one oxygen, and enough hydrogen to fill out the structural diagram, and we end up with methanol. Now, we still have 8 hydrogen ions left over from this, so we can go ahead and slap 6 together to form another carbon, and bam, we got us some methylene.

    Thus, I have conclusively proven that carbon dioxide is not only organic, but is in fact doubly organic. As they say in the chemistry department, BOOYAKASHA!

    This can stop here and now if you simply accept that I can science badly with far more finesse than you can science goodly. I also English great.

It's like a Monty Python skit that way - it doesn't ever come up organically, but nobody minds).

    I actually messed up my math there. It must have been all the helium I was inhaling. Anyway, it's fixed now.

    When I was a small child, I stole some carob-flavored bulk dog-treats from the pet store and ate them myself.

    They were actually really good.

    I don't know why I'm sharing this now.

    I just realy like exploring mystical settings, figuring out what the rules are, and trying to figure out how many differant concepts you can stretch out of something.

    Currently, I'm wondering if a Light Side Force Walker(a concept from Star Wars Legends, introduced in The Old Republic. Basically, some people are born with power over various types of Ghosts becuase they're a living connection between the living and dead parts of the Force. This gives them various powers) who learned the secrets of immortality(Light Side Force Ghosts, becoming one with the Force while remaining distinct from it and able to influence the world and manifest yourself) could result in someone being able to materialize their body after death to create true immortality.

    I'm also wondering how far you could stretch the "apply the forms and concepts of one Bending style to improve another" thing from Avatar, which created the Lighting redirection technique.

    But in general, I just like trying to figure out the rules of settings that clearly have them and give you something to work on but don't have all the rules explained.

    Well, Not had a PC shutdown since Thursday morning (touch wood) and it's been on constantly since then - notably after I changed the plug socket on the surge supressor. It's only crashed three time since midday last Monday, too (we've been logging it).

    Think it seems like it's worth getting a new surge suppressor at this point.

    Oh, it was. I had him since I was 10. A little puppy furball. He was part of the family... like a best pal you can tell everything, and somehow feel he understands you, and shows compasion... like, he really knows what you're talking about, you know what I mean?

    Alas dogs don't live as long as we do, and it's been 4 years since he's gone.

    I adore it.

    I like many teas but a good lapsang souchong is probably my favorite...Then again I also prefer my whiskey peat fired...so I may just like smoke.

    I prefer herbal blends. apple cinnamon, there's a couple of chamomile and mint based blends I care for.

    Though, I'm also quite fond of Chai.
