Analysis of Scenario Ratings in Blades of Avernum

Pretty neat.
Something like standard deviation or variance might be a much more useful indicator of how much controversy is associated with any given scenario's rating... I guess it would take a bit of effort in terms of data collection though.

It's really more of an 'in before the ban' sort of topic...

Not very hard - its one of the definitions on a dictionary.com search. Not to mention that it isn't the number of definitions with a certain meaning that matter; any meaning of a word can be used in an interpretation. What gives you the right to judge which interpretation is the right one?

We're not voting for the best antagonist here. We are voting for best villain. There is a difference.

It really depends on the definition you use for villain - one of the definitions, and the interpretation that a lot of people are using in this case, is "A dramatic or fictional character who is typically at odds with the hero." This is no different from an antagonist - and the most interesting antagonists are generally the ones that have real motivations and aren't just plot devices.

I don't find it funny either. Did you attempt to prosecute the neighbor?
No point -- there's no evidence that would hold up in court.

Did you at least key his car?

The total pressure of a fluid is defined by the Bernoulli integral:

Pt (total pressure) = P (static pressure) + density*g*height (elevation pressure) + (density*v^2)/2 (dynamic pressure)

For a given fluid, 'total pressure' is constant, unless you're putting energy into the system.
'Static pressure' is what we normally think of as 'pressure' (that is, the forces exerted by a substance on a surface). However if you have a fluid with the a constant 'total pressure' (and at the same height, so you can ignore the effect of elevation pressure due to the lack of gravitational effects), clearly when you increase velocity, there has to be a corresponding decrease in the static pressure.
If that helps.

The craziest thing i've done was put candles out with my hands by depriving them of oxygen. Not that it was life threatening or anything, but i did have blisters covering both my palms for a few months. It was sort of cool cause i was at some school dinner with some friends, and i did it while they were watching me, and none of them thought i'd be able to put the candles out like that. It suprisingly didn't hurt much, at least not until later...

Here's an article with a modern archaeological take on the old testament. Just thought I'd throw it into the melting pot of conversation going on here.

It's long, but goes into reasonable detail. I'm slightly uncertain as to exactly how many archaeologists are in agreement on the subject, but I find it's certainly an interesting and worthwhile read.

Australia seems under-represented in this election, so I'd like to vote too.
