For years, scientists have wondered if dark, crater-like features on the lunar surface might be entrances to giant caverns carved long ago by flowing lava. Researchers from Japan and the United States have uncovered new evidence to prove that these features actually exist—which is good news for future lunar colonists…

Their screen time in The Shining is quite brief, but the ghostly Grady twins instantly became one of the 1980 movie’s most iconic images. Former child actors Lisa and Leslie Burns are forever (and ever) linked with the classic Stanley Kubrick film, and they don’t seem to mind one bit.

In its five years of existence, Arrow has slowly indulged in the Batman-ification of the Emerald Archer, bringing in a wealth of characters and villains more closely connected to the Dark Knight as it’s taken Oliver Queen down paths more aligned with Bruce Wayne. But finally, it gets to make an explicit reference.

For tank/DPS combos*. This grows more obvious the more I try to brainstorm this years NaNoWriMo project.

Also, if I didn't hate the mechanics/stats side of it, I would totally write litRPG. But even in my gaming, I want less fussing with stats, not MORE.



*I blame [personal profile] darthneko and I swapping to monk mains this expac. One brewmaster plus one windwalker will rip through anything, including heroic dungeons. Sadly, we can't yet duo current-content raids, or the bullshit quests that keep sending me to Emerald Nightmare would be done already.

The idea here is to organize a gift exchange designed for Marvel and its many branched runs, authors, related and unrelated fandoms. The idea is to include the X-Men side and the Avengers side and every other side that non-Marvel fans don't realize is Marvel. The idea is to include any timeline you want, any world you want, any character you want, so long as it's Marvel.

*C has a workshop in Milwaukee today and a teleconference meeting with China and Japan branches tomorrow night, so I'm taking advantage of this to pretty much flail around being a spinster for a bit. Tonight that looks like L coming over with tuna steaks and us making food he won't eat. Tomorrow it looks tragically normal (full of rehearsal and lesson), but I'll probably stay out a bit doing PokeGo stuff if I feel the need to wander.

*Surprisingly absolutely nobody, getting the apartment to a reasonable state of cleanliness gives me a minimum of one spoon/day back. Today I used that spoon to take a walk to the park. Then I discovered that with no fucking trees for windbreak, it was NOT NICE even with a hoodie.

*Pursuant to both Jag and [personal profile] alatefeline's nudges, I took Benadryl Monday night. I promptly didn't wake up for 11-12 hours, but the renos downstairs appear to be grinding to a finish and I haven't felt truly Miserable And Awful since I took it, so either it was indeed allergies kicked up by the extra dust or it was the beginnings of a cold and infinite sleep let my immune system beat it up.

*Birthday shenanigans this weekend are sadly not very shenanigan-y, due to overall lack of people who feel like driving to see me. Which is fair! Stupid adulthood. Just, bah, I was hoping for HELP eating my birthday cake this year, since L has absolutely no sense of proportion with birthday cakes. None. At all. And at the rate the day job is eating Jag's FACE I'm not gonna get weaving supplies until... I don't even fucking know, maybe after SAFF. Again: which is fine, understandable, adulthood is a bear, I'm just mildly sad. Next year I go back to my standby of LALALALA I REFUSE TO PLAN NOTHING EVER WORKS OUT so I can't be disappointed. This has been my stance since shortly after college and man if I'd adopted it DURING college I would've had a lot fewer disappointing/upsetting birthdays.

*This is also the season of various half-revelations and epiphanies and I would just like them to stop happening? Nothing particularly NEW, for those I've IMed about them, just oh my god, could we not. I am le tired. They run the gamut from L's comments about me as the dominant personality of the three of us (about half-true, C just doesn't NEED to be an overwhelming force at us, he does enough of that at work) to ... hell, I forgot what the one earlier this week was, I don't think I wrote it down in anyone's chat window either. Dammit. To various strains of coping with the certainty of no, I am disabled, this is my life, I can basically only expect a certain level of improvement unless they agree to zap my brain with magnets sometime soon. Which has been going on in the background since AUGUST and I would like to stop ruminating on it? I just haven't figured out what the ruminants are trying to tell me.

*Very slowly working on bargaining myself into x rows of knitting for every round of Cooking Craze. Not shockingly, I feel BETTER with the knitting. Not that my brain likes admitting that. I am so replacing it with a small shell script, magnets aside.

One of the writers behind Batman vs. Two-Face claims Warner Bros. briefly considered turning Tim Burton’s ill-fated Superman Lives into an animated film. But if Nicolas Cage’s Superman became a reality, would it no longer exist only in our minds? I don’t know if I want to live in a world where I can no longer imagine…

this excellent post from [personal profile] rosefox's [syndicated profile] story_hospital_feed — does anyone have thoughts on what warmup exercises for writers might look like? I've encountered the concept, but not at length.

Research Risks

I have some thoughts:

1. Marine biology is low risk of misuse by supervillains? Come on! Sharks!

2. Molasses storage's low risk of breaking free and threatening local population: didn't that actually happen at least once? If we're counting trucks as facilities, I mean. Never mind, I should have looked at the mouseover text before posting.

3. I wouldn't put linguistics that low for supervillain risk, assuming the validity of the strong Sapir-Whorf hypothesis. (Yes, everything I knew about Sapir-Whorf did come from that one Delany book.)

4. But then, he put palaeontology low as well, and. Well. Do that right/wrong enough and you get both microbiology (bubonic plague! anthrax!) AND ornithology (dinosaurs!)

5. HE LEFT OUT ECONOMICS. And poli-sci (between history and sociology?) but imo economics is WAY scarier from both a supervillain and accidental escape perspective.

6. Really, isn't any discipline high supervillain risk if the supervillain has the right mental attitude?

7. If prosthetics is high supervillain risk/low escape risk, and dentistry is low supervillain risk/low escape risk, are dentures high or low supervillain risk?
