Round 7: DEANS FANCY GUN WITH THE COOL WHITE HANDLE "that was my gun he was pointing at your head and my gun dont jam" This gun has survived more episodes than nearly any other object. Whenever Dean loses it it miraculously reappears in later episodes. Dean also frequently pulls it out of his ass when needed, especially when he really didn't look like he was packing in a previous scene. This gun cannot be killed. Not even by this show. Also its a Colt, and thus gets honorary sacred significance.

NICE.

I like the ass pull implication just because, so I’m gonna give you 5 bonus points

I can make a socially inept gecko space on the scoreboard if you like, although you are helping “anon” back up to the winning spot bit by bit :P

Paladins are sexy

Our party ended the previous session in the middle of a boss fight, and one of our characters, the paladin, levelled up, giving her spells finally. We mostly had been doing 5 damage each, pitiful. When Harmony’s turn (paladin) came around, she used all her spell slots to deal 55 points of damage all at once.

DM:… make a Constitution Saving Throw.

Wixel (goblin sorcerer) fails, but Yams (basically David Bowie as a warlock) rolls a nat 1.

DM: you nut THROUGH your pants. Disadvantage on charisma checks.

Yams: I take my pants off.

DM: …ok?

Yams: This isn’t the weirdest thing I’ve ever had happen to me!

In a recent video, Warped Perception filmed a model rocket engine firing underwater. Firstly, it’s no surprise that the engine would still operate underwater (after its wax waterproofing). The solid propellant inside the engine is a mixture of fuel and oxidizer, so it has all the oxygen it needs. Fluid dynamically speaking, though, this high-speed footage is just gorgeous. 

Ignition starts at about 3:22 with some cavitation as the exhaust gases start flowing. Notice how that initial bubble dimples the surface when it rises (3:48). At the same time, the expanding exhaust on the right side of the tank is forcing the water level higher on that side, triggering an overflow starting at about 3:55. At this point, the splashes start to obscure the engine somewhat, but that’s okay. Watch that sheet of liquid; it develops a thicker rim edge and starts forming ligaments around 4:10. Thanks to surface tension and the Plateau-Rayleigh instability, those ligaments start breaking into droplets (4:20). A couple seconds later, holes form in the liquid sheet, triggering a larger breakdown. By 4:45, you can see smoke-filled bubbles getting swept along by the splash, and larger holes are nucleating in that sheet. 

The second set of fireworks comes around 5:42, when the parachute ejection charge triggers. That second explosive triggers a big cavitation bubble and shock wave that utterly destroys the tank. If you look closely, you can see the cavitation bubble collapse and rebound as the pressure tries to adjust, but by that point, the tank is already falling. Really spectacular stuff!  (Video and image credit: Warped Perception)

Casually stating few facts, volume 2:

…a.k.a Jimin probably really stalked Jungkook’s Vlive in Bangkok, before coming to the room and scolding him. Then he lied about it. Just Jikook things.

So, don’t ask me why, because even I have no idea how I came across this, but I found out where BTS stayed two weeks ago at Bangkok. Well, more like, I was working on my cute-throwback-analysis from other time they were at Bangkok, and at the end the name of location they were in - Grande Centre Point Terminal 21 - appeared. So I thought, hm, let’s check it out, maybe they stayed there now, too. But it wasn’t it, it was another hotel from Centre Point family (there are like 4?) - Grande Centre Point Sukhumvit 55. I almost choked when I saw the very familiar flower-like pattern behind those beds, also whole room’s settings. :

I guess I didn’t choose the detective life, detective life chose me.
Firstly, I tried to find out if the rooms are soundproof – they’re not. But they have soundproof windows, tho :D
Then I googled through lots of pictures – to find some of the corridors, to know how big they are and how far the rooms are from one another. And finalllyyy I found this:

It may not be a photo, more like a graphic-like pic, but I also watched some videos taken by people there and in those short glimpses I saw that corridors really look like this. This is just the best pic to show you :) (Fun fact: even Lee Min Ho stayed there!)

Anyway, now to this mini-analysis:

Jungkook was in the corner of his room (see pic number 2 in the first picture, I’m almost sure pattern of his room was like that), singing quietly + really ‘soft’ song. Jimin came in rushing, saying he can hear him. JIMIN IS A LIAR. THIS IS WHY:
1. Jungkook tells us Jimin’s room is across the hall, so it definitely can’t be that Jimin heard music through the walls or something.
2. Also the rooms have this small „corridor“ as you walk in, that is quite far from where Jungkook sits. Judging by pics + my research, at least 6 meters

3. The hall is at least (!) 2 meters wide
4. Even if Jimin’s room was DIRECTLY across Jungkook’s; how big are the chances of:

Quiet singing + music, travelling across whole room and that „corridor“ in the room, through closed doors and thick walls, through 2+ meter’s hall, possibly even farther away from JK’s room (in case Jimin’s room isn’t directly in front of Jungkook’s). Then coming to Jiminies‘ ears through ANOTHER door + walls? Not even mentioning that Jimin had probably same-situated room, so he most likely hanged out far from his door.

That leaves us with what?

Jimin is a liar, stalker of his boyfriend‘s- Jungkook’s Vlives, and he gladly participates in Jungkook’s plans to bring him „mischievously“ into the Vlive.

Like yes, there is a chance he somehow heard it. Nothing is 100%. But as a Jungkook’s advocate, I think there’s no chance for Jimin to hear him, if he wasn’t watching the Vlive.

K, Bye.

This one time, we had a huge storm (we don't usually have rain or storms here) and my sister's science teacher accidentally triggered the fire alarm. Everyone was forced to evacuate the building and out into the rain, where we got soaked. And I missed like 30 minutes of lunch for that. (Lunch was around 50-55 mins.)

Not the point of the story but we only get like 30 minutes for lunch.

Let us suppose that a 10th level fighter has 55 hit points, plus a bonus of 30 hit points for his constitution, for a total of 85 hit points. This is the equivalent of about 18 hit dice for creatures, about what it would take to kill four huge warhorses. It is ridiculous to assume that even a fantastic fighter can take that much punishment. The same holds true to a lesser extent for clerics, thieves, and other classes. Thus, the majority of hit points are symbolic of combat skill, luck (bestowed by supernatural powers), and magical forces.

Just curious -- you tagged that one pic of Zaynie as shade game strong. What is he shading?

While Liam is pushing this separation narrative in interviews (fuck Liam’s “new” team) Zayn is out here being papped in a solid red sweatshirt. This isn’t his normal promo outing product placement papping. He even covers his face in most of the pics. I see it as an ode to Liam - red is the colour the fandom associates with Liam - and it literally wraps his body and disappears in the red sweatshirt. The boys give us nonverbal clues and this seems to be one. Also, as @madat-55 pointed out, Liam was papped in the yellow sweater - Zaynie’s colour - prior to this bullshit popping off. So, IMO, they are good.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel PC Guest Blog #1 from Peter “Durante” Thoman - Performance

When XSEED approached me about contributing to their in-progress The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel port, I was immediately excited about the prospect. The Trails in the Sky series features some of my favourite JRPGs on PC, so I looked forward to making this later game in the franchise the best it can be on PC.

Of course, back at that point I didn’t quite anticipate just how involved I would get - I was expecting to do some optimization here and there, maybe amounting to a week or two of full-time work. Reality would turn out different, and in this series of articles I’ll give you some idea of why.

The series is currently planned in 3 parts, leading up to the release of the game on August 2nd:

  • The first part, which you are reading right now, deals with performance aspects, primarily framerates and loading times.
  • The second part will describe the graphical enhancements and options available in the PC version, and how they came about.
  • Finally, the third part will go into some specific features of the PC port that aren’t direct graphical enhancements, and explain some of the challenges in implementing them.

Worldbuilding Advice

Hello hello! I’d love it if y'all could provide some feedback/advice on a world I’m working on.

So my world is an alternate universe that is effectively set up like a video game in the sense that every person has ‘skill points’. So for example, when someone is born, they all receive a base of 50 skill points which their parents can use to fill various attributes (IQ, EQ, Strength, Appearance, Endurance, etc.).

As people grow up, they receive additional points which they can use to ‘flesh out’ their talents and traits. So on their birthday, people receive 10 additional points or when they graduate, they get X number of points. They also unlock new and more specific attributes as they go; Appearance might have subcategories of Height, Weight, or Eye Colour while IQ could splinter off into Mathematical skills vs Writing skills. Skill points effectively become a measurement/requirement tool in the world and each person’s skill points are visible to others. So for example, top-tier schools would give you 30 points upon graduation while lower-tier schools might only give their alumni 15. In order to be a teacher, you’d need at least 35 points attributed to Ethics/Morals while surgeons might need 58 points in Precision, etc. 

People can choose to attempt to work on their skills/personality traits but the points indicate a cap on their potential. So if two people were studying Spanish, the person with 20 points in their Linguistics tree would never be able to master the language to the same degree as a person with 55 points. This provides an incentive for people to focus more on the acquisition of points rather than natural development of their abilities. 

I’ve been brainstorming on how this might affect the way people interact in society. A few would be:

Class levels- The elite are able to afford schools that give out more skill points upon graduation, thus allowing them to get higher paying jobs. The rich are more likely to leave skill points as an inheritance to their children, giving the children a better start in life. 

Trends- You’d have different fashion trends dictating which Appearance subcategories people should invest their points in. Different countries might prefer to spend their points on different categories.

Discrimination- Less focused on race/sex/orientation/etc. (although it still exists) and more on how many skill points a person has. People tend to date within their own point groups and it’s considered controversial if someone with a lot of skill points dates someone with considerably fewer points. Landlords might only rent out to people with certain attributes. 

Jobs- Job requirements are a lot more quantifiable and you’d also have new types of jobs appearing while ones that exist in our world would disappear. For example,“plastic surgeons” in this world are not people who can change your appearance but people who allow you to re-organize the way you’ve currently allocated your skill points.

Values and Ethics- Subcultures and societies that don’t subscribe to the mainstream may choose to leave their points undelegated or allocate them to controversial categories. Families may pressure their children to use their points in certain ways in order to qualify for X job or Y school when they grow up.

What other issues do you think might crop up in a world setting like this? I’m struggling in particular with government-related changes as well as the subtle things that might affect people’s day-to-day routines. Any functional or logic-based suggestions to changes I could make? (Also, sorry for the length and rambliness of this ask).

Mirintala: Apologies that we’ve taken a while to reply back to this one. The team was taking some time to think about the ideas you’ve presented.

Werew:  Honestly, this is so dystopian as a concept that if I read a book where this is how everything worked and the plot was NOT centered around the negative ramifications of such a society and people overcoming them somehow, I would probably throw the book across the room. I can see there being ENORMOUSLY massive differences in this society and if it looked like a slightly weird version of our own, I would also throw the book. This is not a criticism of the idea itself, I’m just saying that I think there are some things that would need to be present or it would feel strange and forced. If a book in this world didn’t include heavy dystopian themes, I would go “what the hell is this society and why is it part of this book?”

I can see there being very heavy prejudice against people with lower skill points. Think of it like this: In today’s world, some people see others as lesser based on a lot of things–race, origin, wealth–but pretty much every (decent) person knows that this is a bunch of bollocks. Some things grant greater opportunities to people and can impact what they are able to achieve in life, but it is entirely possible for a person of [inset disadvantaged group here] to completely outstrip someone of a more privileged group. But what are the impacts on society if there actually ARE people who are objectively “lesser” than others? Think about that. Now think about it again from a different angle. This will change so many things about the way that society is.

Obviously, there will be the changes that you described, but I think it will go so much deeper than you have described here. What if jobs don’t even bother interviewing people anymore–they just view applicants’ skill allocations and hire based on those. What if someone with a total number of skill points less than [number] is automatically disqualified, even if they meet every single other requirement because they were very careful with their limited number of skill points? Are innate aptitudes that don’t have to do with skill points even a thing anymore? If two people from two different families grew up and applied no skill points to height, would they come out the same height or different ones? How deep does this go? Are races visually different because of genetics, or because they might choose to put skill points in certain areas?

I think that there will be entire subcultures based on skill point availability. People who are poor and have fewer opportunities to gain skill points will be entirely unable to move up in society. They will be restricted to low-income jobs, and will be completely stuck in the situation they were born in. They are likely to be seen as less than human by richer, more point-endowed people, who are likely to try to take their rights away. And they are likely to succeed. If the government is democratic–or at least “democratic”–nobody is going to vote for someone with low points to represent them. Even if the poorest people started out with the rights to vote, I could easily see them losing them–at least functionally–quickly.

Also, how does this affect mental illness, disability, chronic conditions, etc? Could a person with asthma overcome it by allocating enough points into certain places? Are there point categories for things like mental function? Do these things even still exist? Are the people in this world even still human as we define ourselves?

Synth:  It sounds like an absolutely fascinating world. I’m mostly curious on what “form” these points take. Are they physical things (and can therefore be bartered/stolen), or something less corporeal?

On the whole I agree with what Werew said re: dystopia. Such a world, no matter how good the intentions of the folks in charge may be, is at risk of becoming intensely socially stratified very quickly.

The concept reminds me a little bit of the plot of the movie In Time, where, instead of the “skill points” of your story, people pay/get paid with literal minutes/hours of their lives. The poor live day to day in the most terrible sense of the phrase, while the rich are basically immortal.
