    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Take a look at the squirrel - the excited forward lean, the faraway look in his eyes, the somewhat moth-eaten appearance: the little dude's clearly trying to recruit players for his homebrew campaign with "just a few house rules".

    Hmm. *Looks out window* *Retrieves Little Wildcat* This isn't funny any more. Fourth time I've been confined to quarters by smoke in the past 2 years. Not too worried about the fires themselves getting here - I live close enough to the primary water bomber base that if that happens, things have gone so far pear-shaped that they've been thinly sliced, laid out on puff pastry, given an egg wash and baked to perfection with the heat from the encroaching flames. I'm lucky enough that I can just stay on a blanket with the kittens until this blows over. But I do consider the incineration of small towns with little warning to be cause for concern.

    Presumably with plenty of nuts?

    "I have, as you put it, 'killed Hitler', 1,437 times. I've introduced his parents to other people, replaced his gas mask filter with Folgers crystals, and even managed to get a mediocre landscape artist into the Vienna Academy via compromising photographs that I'd rather forget taking. Each and every result was objectively *worse* than the current timeline."

    Humans that can catch mice by pouncing on them aren't all that common. So we don't concern them that much. The primary rodent control from cats is actually from the litter box. Rodents are repelled by the smell of used kitty litter. Unless they have toxoplasmosis, in which case infected rodents are attracted to feline fewmets due to the parasites' compulsion to get inside a cat. There's also the fact that cats are highly adaptable predators, which sounds great until you realize that all of their hunting behaviors beyond "pounce at movement" are learned, not instinctive. Tends to put me at odds with the wildlife rehab folks.

    Wash is unimpressed with the new Sabrina series.

    That sounds exactly like athlete's foot. It's just developed a resistance to the OTC stuff because that's what microbes do, especially since most folks quit applying it after the symptoms are gone. Tinactin probably hasn't been effective in 30 years, if it ever was. I had to use acetone to get rid of the last batch. It's not officially recommended, but if it's safe enough for fingernails it's probably okay for toes if you don't make a habit of it (might sting a bit). I also cleaned the floor of the shower every time I got out alternating between straight bleach and straight pine-sol until it had been gone for a couple of weeks. Your boots are fine if you don't wear them barefoot (I know you don't). Mil-spec foot fungus doesn't respond to half measures.
  11. Every Dungeon and town square needs statues. And some of us don't have all day (or a deep enough silverware drawer) to spend on each one. I don't have a use for a lady carting around several hundredweight of Draconic Head Cheese, but the sculpt's just too nifty to leave in the box of shame. So, a commemorative statue of Lady Janan of Elmoria it is. 77039: Janan, Female Dragon Slayer by Julie Guthrie Just so we all know where we're starting. Start with a Dark brown basecoat. This one's raw umber, but Reaper's beloved brown liner will work a treat. Drybrush with just about any relatively opaque light blue. This will look terrible. Just go with it. If you really loved this figure it wouldn't be getting turned into terrain. Draw the rest of the owl. A glaze of something seafoam green and somewhat translucent. This is something called "Bayberry" in Folkart's catalog. Seal with your favorite flat acrylic. Now I've just got to build a fountain to stick her in.

    Change? Is that like "Film", "Vinyl Ell-Peas", and other legendary artifacts of the ancients? Pretty much all of the standard aurumancy incantations are easily automated. Black-Scholes was about as complicated as it got, and I've never used it. The stats courses are pretty good for telling me when someone isn't putting any effort into lying, though.

    Part Count =/= Flatbread factor. 400 parts that fit with decent instructions would be a whole lot easier than, say, most large pewter kits. Time consuming, but not particularly high on frustrated rage.

    That's called factorial. It comes up a lot in probability, particularly in things like card arrangements or drawing lots.
