Re: [OOC] Out of Character
Says you. A Critical Success on an Observation roll clearly means he saw that butterfly that was flying in just the right place to affect weather in Brazil. A Critical Failure, well... he didn't see Mothra about to whomp his arse in the head. (Do arses have heads? :)

Re: [OOC] Out of Character
Curiously, "arse" doesn't have any connection to a donkey -- it has a whole different etymology, having always referred only to the anatomy.  So, no.

(You didn't think I'd actually research that, did you?  ...Actually, you've known me for a while.  You're probably not surprised at all.  Hmph.)

But thanks for bringing Mothra down on us, Peter.  These things affect everybody, you know.  At least, everybody who isn't safely tucked away under a tarp.  It's been a while since I watched any Godzilla, but I'm pretty sure heavy fabric was totally proof against Mothra.

Re: [OOC] Out of Character
Not total proof, but he probably can't see you. So whilst the rest of the group is doomed to be mind-raped by the most powerful psychic in the world1, you should be safe hiding away in that tarp-covered boat.

1 Does anyone else find it a bit weird that the most powerful psychic in the world is an overgrown butterfly?

I find it weird that people would even watch that movie...

Re: [OOC] Out of Character
I always had the impression that Mothra was an overgrown moth.  Like She-Ra is an overgrown she, and Ra is just... overgrown, I guess?  Otherwise wouldn't he have been named Butterflyra?  Or at least Lepidoptera?

Moth, butterfly... they're both things that cause hurricanes in New York if they flap their wings in Brazil. ;)

Re: [OOC] Out of Character
I'm going to post tomorrow. I had planned on posting today, but my travels have left me exhausted. On the plus side, I'm back where there's modern conveniences like air conditioning and my puppy. :)

Aww.  I miss my air conditioning when I'm away, too - sometimes even when it's just for an afternoon!

Re: [OOC] Out of Character
If you are in much of Arizona it's a necessity right now. It's so hot the pavement cooks anything on it, polish melts off shoes etc.   and it's dry... saw two bushes following my dog around hopefully.

I don't much mind the dry heat... it's the wet stuff that gets to me. It's actually hotter here in Texas, where I am now, but the air's pretty dry so it doesn't feel so... blek, y'know? I think my favorite trip ever was when I was fourteen. My mom and I went to Israel, and it broke 114F one day. I finally got to use that line from Aliens and have it make sense: "Yeah, man, but it's a dry heat." ;)

Can't say I've ever seen polish melt off shoes, though. That's a bit of a scary thought. o.0

Re: [OOC] Out of Character
   Fairly cool here in Canada right now, but the Prairies are supposed to hit in the 35 degree Celsius range (that's near 100 degrees) later this week, so if you were thinking that we're just ice and Eskimoes...

Re: [OOC] Out of Character
We have been there for the past two weeks or more... Phoenix has been up to 120+ several days [that's 48-49 C], Tucson has been around 110 F and we in the higher country have been around 100 ... except when we have to go down to the city.  Today, they say the Monsoon may start, we have a 30% chance of Thunderstorms, so the heat falls off and the humidity climbs.
Of course, unlike Calgary and such places, when it snows here, we normally have a second cup of coffee to give it time to melt off.

Re: [OOC] Out of Character
This is why I've been thinking about moving to Pluto.  I gather it's much cooler there.

Speaking as an American, I resent the implication that we would simplify a beautiful and diverse country like Canada to a pair of simple stereotypes!  ...You also have no trash, and maple syrup, don't you?  grin

Re: [OOC] Out of Character
Along with Salmon, some good Cheddar cheeses, decent beer and good hunting. But winters are colder and/or Damper than I like and they are longer. One of My Paternal Grandparents was from Ontario, so I'm sort of partial as well.

   Of course, we have trash - it's called Toronto. :P

   And we have so much maple syrup, there's a drop of it in *everything*

Re: [OOC] Out of Character
So I was just wondering why no one was posting at all today, in any games or even the OOC forums, and I realized today is a holiday in the US. Happy 4th, all. Anyway, that got me further thinking, and I realized I'd forgotten to award points for my graduation like I'd meant to. So congrats, all! +1 character point all rounds, feel free to spend however you like (with the usual caveat that I need to know how you'll be spending it immediately).
