Shapeshifting

A conversation me and ekwa had about shapeshifting and Mystique. Somewhat nsfw?   [7:47:05 PM] Dylan: hmm [7:47:13 PM] Dylan: i really wish i was a shapeshifter [7:47:33 PM] Sweepy: what if you couldn't change your mass? [7:47:37 PM] Dylan: hmm [7:47:37 PM] Sweepy: like you had to put it in a bucket or something [7:47:44 PM] Dylan: i guess i could just be hollow [7:47:54 PM] Sweepy: i wonder if you could stay alive after that [7:48:02 PM] Sweepy: i know part of mystique's power is that she can't change her mass [7:48:12 PM] Sweepy: and in this one episode of x men evolution she turns into a crow and flies away [7:48:18 PM] Sweepy: and i was like lol, that's not gonna happen [7:48:31 PM] Dylan: ahha [7:48:40 PM] Dylan: they established that in the books? [7:48:43 PM] Sweepy: yeah [7:48:49 PM] Sweepy: heaviest fudgeing crow in the world [7:49:01 PM] Sweepy: with the density of a diamond. lol [7:49:08 PM] Dylan: she just expand her mass so that she is lighter than air? [7:49:09 PM] Sweepy: actually that might make a cool weapon [7:49:15 PM] Dylan: and then [7:49:20 PM] Dylan: she floats away [7:49:29 PM] Sweepy: yeah, that would work better than being a tiny crow [7:49:34 PM] Dylan: wait [7:49:40 PM] Sweepy: she could be an enormous crow [7:49:42 PM] Dylan: say she turned into a baloon [7:49:47 PM] Dylan: balloon [7:49:59 PM] Dylan: but made it so that there was a vacumm inside [7:50:09 PM] Dylan: would that help her float? [7:50:17 PM] Sweepy: a vacuum inside how? [7:50:30 PM] Dylan: like say she made herself a flat balloon [7:50:53 PM] Dylan: but made the ousides rigid so that it would made a vaccum of space inside [7:51:08 PM] Sweepy: i don't think so [7:51:19 PM] Sweepy: it would be like having a big paper mache balloon [7:51:28 PM] Sweepy: maybe if she got someone to light a fire underneath her [7:51:49 PM] Dylan: well [7:51:58 PM] Dylan: say i have a material that is very light [7:52:02 PM] Dylan: but very strong [7:52:34 PM] Dylan: and [7:52:43 PM] Dylan: i made a sphere [7:52:49 PM] Dylan: and pumped all the air out [7:52:56 PM] Dylan: and made another sphere [7:53:01 PM] Dylan: but left the air in [7:53:13 PM] Dylan: and i placed them on water [7:53:36 PM] Sweepy: and then? [7:53:49 PM] Dylan: would one be more or less boyant? [7:54:02 PM] Dylan: boyancy depends on space taken up and weight right? [7:54:24 PM] Sweepy: they're on water and one is filled with air. unless you're planning on filling one mystique balloon with helium or something it's not an accurate comparison [7:55:38 PM] Sweepy: and buoyancy is only for fluids [7:56:08 PM] Dylan: A vacuum can have volume but does not have mass, and so, it would seem, a balloon with a vacuum inside should be lifted by the buoyancy of the air around it. This doesn't work, however, because of the force of surrounding air pressure. Air pressure doesn't crush an inflated balloon, because the air inside the balloon pushes out with the same force as the outside air pushing in. A vacuum, on the other hand, doesn't have any outward pressure, since it has no particles bouncing against anything. Without equal pressure balancing it out, the outside air pressure will easily crush the balloon. And any container strong enough to hold up to the air pressure at the earth's surface will be much too heavy to be lifted by the buoyant force. [7:56:24 PM] Dylan: so it would have to be a magic material [7:56:34 PM] Dylan: that had no weight? [7:56:43 PM] Sweepy: yeah [7:56:53 PM] Sweepy: i think that no matter what, mystique couldn't transform into things that weren't alive [7:56:59 PM] Sweepy: so she couldn't transform into idk... a rock [7:57:07 PM] Sweepy: or a plasma gun [7:57:08 PM] Dylan: oh [7:57:09 PM] Dylan: :D [7:57:10 PM] Sweepy: that would be hilarious, though [7:57:29 PM] Sweepy: mystique turns into a laser gun and sabertooth uses her to shoot everyone [7:57:34 PM] Sweepy: and she's like PEW PEW MOTHAfudgeAS [7:58:37 PM] Sweepy: i'm thinking, though, that mystique turns herself into a gigantic flying squirrel [7:58:52 PM] Sweepy: so even if her strength is proportional to her mass, it doesnt' matter if she's strong [7:59:01 PM] Sweepy: and then she glides off a cliff or something [7:59:12 PM] Sweepy: then she's above something and turns herself into a shrew [7:59:17 PM] Sweepy: falls down soo fast, like a bullet [7:59:42 PM] Sweepy: and because she's so dense she can't really get hurt [8:00:21 PM] Dylan: lolz [8:00:29 PM] Dylan: well she makes clothes right [8:00:32 PM] Dylan: when she shifts [8:00:44 PM] Sweepy: i dunno [8:00:56 PM] Sweepy: maybe they're actually a part of her flesh [8:00:59 PM] Sweepy: that would be really cool and gross [8:01:01 PM] Sweepy: ahaha [8:01:07 PM] Sweepy: imma go check xmen wiki [8:02:42 PM] Sweepy: Metamorphic Adaptation: After her enhancement Mystique has shown the ability to adapt her body depending on her situation at the time. She was able to adapt her body in order to camouflage according to her surroundings, shift her organs into her lower extremities, heal from numerous bullet wounds in at least a few minutes, and mimic the textures of metals (when she took on the form of Magneto and his helmet). She also clearly stated that she is always naked and she merely makes her skin look and feel like other materials to fool others. [8:02:43 PM] Sweepy: ewwwwwwww [8:02:45 PM] Sweepy: it is her skin! lol [8:02:58 PM] Sweepy: lol! [8:03:01 PM] Dylan: yeah [8:03:04 PM] Sweepy: that's got so much perv potential [8:03:06 PM] Dylan: so if she can make flaps [8:03:13 PM] Dylan: she can make a hang gliding thing [8:03:19 PM] Dylan: so a gliding suit flaps [8:03:23 PM] Dylan: like in that video [8:04:18 PM] Sweepy: yeah [8:04:48 PM] Sweepy: lol. imagine going on the skytrain and sitting beside a hot person [8:04:52 PM] Sweepy: ooo, my clothes are touching you [8:04:55 PM] Sweepy: ooooOOOooo [8:05:08 PM] Sweepy: now i can't get that out of my heqad [8:05:09 PM] Sweepy: head [8:05:31 PM] Dylan: lolz [8:05:50 PM] Dylan: i guess they could get some clothes [8:05:53 PM] Dylan: and not be a fool [8:06:05 PM] Dylan: but i guess she never undresses infront of you [8:06:08 PM] Sweepy: where's the fun in that, though? [8:06:11 PM] Dylan: because she can't take her clothes off [8:06:17 PM] Sweepy: well maybe she can, but it hurts? [8:06:30 PM] Sweepy: and then it's all bloody underneath [8:06:30 PM] Sweepy: lol [8:07:08 PM] Sweepy: so it says mystique can regenerate her wounds by remorphing them [8:07:19 PM] Sweepy: so what if someone cuts off one of her arms or legs? [8:07:27 PM] Sweepy: does she just become her, but smaller? [8:07:35 PM] Sweepy: or could she.. idk, eat her arm or leg and them remorph back properly? [8:08:25 PM] Sweepy: Veteran X-Men writer Chris Claremont has stated in interviews that he originally intended for Mystique and Destiny to be Nightcrawler's biological parents (Mystique having morphed into a man for the conception), but Marvel nixed the idea for being too controversial, due to it being a point in time where writers were prevented from having a character be gay or bisexual. [8:08:37 PM] Sweepy: that's kinda weird. you'd think that nightcrawler would be a girl [8:08:51 PM] Dylan: why? [8:09:05 PM] Sweepy: because mystique is a girl and destiny's a girl [8:09:09 PM] Sweepy: there's not a y chromosome between 'em [8:09:19 PM] Sweepy: maybe mystique can change that, though? [8:09:33 PM] Sweepy: but then why would nightcrawler look like that if she did? [8:10:33 PM] Sweepy: i read about this shapeshifter who could change her sex [8:10:42 PM] Sweepy: and then whenever she changed into a guy and fathered children, they were always girls [8:13:02 PM] Dylan: oh [8:13:03 PM] Dylan: ahha [8:15:44 PM] Dylan: hmm [8:15:46 PM] Dylan: well i guess [8:15:55 PM] Dylan: if you can shape shift [8:15:58 PM] Dylan: all bets are off? [8:16:04 PM] Sweepy: works for me. lol [8:16:10 PM] Dylan: well [8:16:19 PM] Dylan: if she's able to change her cells on the genetic level [8:16:30 PM] Dylan: that means she should excrete crazy protiens and stuff [8:16:43 PM] Sweepy: maybe she just vomits them up as like a ball of... [8:16:45 PM] Sweepy: stuff? [8:16:55 PM] Sweepy: or maybe she keeps them and eats them later when she has to change back [8:16:57 PM] Dylan: or like out of a gland [8:17:05 PM] Sweepy: i guess she could *make* herself a gland [8:17:11 PM] Dylan: yeah [8:17:19 PM] Dylan: convert sweat glands [8:17:21 PM] Sweepy: seems easier to just poop them out, though [8:19:49 PM] Sweepy: wait, why am i talking about coprophilia again? [8:20:15 PM] Sweepy: CURSE YOU CHRIS CLAREMONT

Why You Should Never Go On A Chinese Tour

So far China has been really beautiful and kinda strange. Beijing's been industrialized to the point where I wanted to, I could sorta pretend that it's Richmond, but every once in a while I'll see a billion bikes ride past or a huge flipping tour bus drive by six inches from the one I'm in Then five people will jaywalk across the street and almost get run over and then I'll be like, yeah... Not Canada.   I don't know what I expected hotel-wise, probably the room to be flooded with panda semen and the desk clerk to open his mouth and have an endless stream of bedbugs pour out or something, but it's actually a really nice hotel. There's a huge flatscreen tv and of course, there's internet otherwise I wouldn't be posting this. Then there's the swimming pool, gym and buffet every morning. Then again, I didn't really get to take advantage of most of this stuff firsthand, because...   The tours are frickin' 14 hours long nonstop and most of it is spent waiting for people who don't ever seem to stop peeing. They don't even give you 10 minutes to check out the souvenir shop or go to McDonalds to grab a drink that won't give you horrible diarrhea.   Then they take you to three different places, one of which is guaranteed to be a 1-2 hour long infomercial (aka a tea shop) and the tour guide NEVER STOPS TALKING. NEVER.   So if you want to sleep on the bus, good luck.   Personally I feel really sorry for the tour guide, who has to stand and talk for 14 hours every single day for seven days a week.

Over 3.7 Million Articles...

And yet somehow Wikipedia is running out of articles to feature.     How the frick is this a featured page? It's not even so much the subject but the fact that there are all of 8 paragraphs in it. Flipping meowth has a bigger page than that. :(

Made A Ba Defender Guide

Basic Defender tips:

The bait is correct if you drop it when it's correct. So if you drop tofu and the call is tofu, it will still be right even if the call changes to crackers. The best spot to start in is the last recruitment slot. This will put you in the closest possible position to the Defender machine when the wave starts. Antipoison totems and enhanced excalibur are extremely useful, although with the former you will rarely need the latter (except on queen). If you have a low HP level, keep in mind that Saradomin Brews are allowed into BA. The first two calls are crucial to defending quickly. If you're in a team with a healer that lags like hell at the start of the round, or just one who's a slow caller you can guess the bait while dropping a bait line. Run back to the trap asap and stand on the bait and wait for a correct call. Drop the correct bait and pick up the wrong one you dropped earlier. Don't let people run over you when you're standing by the trap and luring/crowding the runners. It makes the runners able to walk through you and destroys your multiple-kill. Explain to them politely why they shouldn't do that, and if they refuse to listen then just leave.

Oddly Linear Dream

I was a 15 year old girl with really curly brown hair who lived in a huge estate with a lot of servants and a grandfather who beat and raped her. She heard a fortuneteller say that unless she escaped, she would end up on the floor with her tongue torn out and her face beaten into something unrecognizable, with her best friend dying beside her.   The girl decides to amass supplies for an escape by sneaking into a nearby town and buying them with cash and returning back home and hiding them. Helping her do this is one of her maids, who advises her and helps keep her cache of supplies secret. One day she has to sneak across this field to get to a camping supply store in a large outdoor mall that's members-only. She prints out a fake member card and embarks on a long trip to get to the mall.   Following the advice of people who smuggle into the mall regularly, she crawls in tall grass across the field, holding a flashlight in her mouth that briefly turns on at a bad moment. No one notices, but she's shaken. When it's time for her to cross a busy freeway she mistimes and is almost hit by a car, which swerves and hits a couple who were also trying to illegally cross behind her. She keeps running and makes it safe over to the other side. She squeezes through the thin gaps in the barred fence, barely making it through with her pack.   Safely inside the mall, she uses her cash and her member card to buy supplies in one store, but makes a misstep somehow and the mall security starts to tail her. She notices them and ducks into an area of mostly-empty storefronts.   The perspective shifts to the mall cop as he looks around for her. He checks a couple of stores, and hears a weak cry from another. He dashes into it and looks to the floor, where the girl is lying dead with her face torn off and her tongue ripped out. The maid who helped her battered, and bleeding to death beside her. Her grandfather had found out and tortured the maid until she lead him to where his granddaughter would be, then he had killed them both. ---- Oddly linear for a dream, and it's strange how it followed a proper storyline. I even woke up right at the end. Somehow it wasn't a nightmare, since I was really hopeful and optimistic for the whole dream, that I would escape from my abusive grandfather and that I was slowly and steadily working towards that goal. My perspective changed away from victims at the end, at the parts that would have been horrific from a first-person perspective.

Preview Night

So it is Preview Night. I had no idea when it was supposed to start, so I used my typical strategy of just showing up at a ridiculously early time so that I wouldn't be late and then winging it from there. I have no idea whether I'm supposed to dress formal, and I have to make industry contacts and be social and yaggh! I'm never gonna get a job and end up cutting fish for the rest of my life. ;_;   Why can't I just pay someone else to be social for me?

Graduation

I'm very very behind on my grad project. I have resigned myself to the fact that I will probably have a "film" that I can use to graduate from the school, but by no means will it be any good. I will most likely have between 1 and a half to 2 minutes of footage cut down a whole minute from my original goal. It will move, but not very well. It will be lit, but extremely poorly. It will have characters that are only passably modeled, and environments that are haphazardly thrown together.   I will most likely not be able to get any sort of job with it.   Lately I've been having a constant feeling of anxiety about something about to go horribly wrong. That I'll be unable to prevent it, but will still be entirely my fault. I haven't been eating or sleeping much anymore. I'll sleep for a fitful couple of hours and wake up feeling like a monster is crawling around inside my chest, like a bomb's about to go off and that I'm somehow responsible. I'm luckier than some of my classmates, who have been getting all sorts of physical maladies from hair loss to hospital-stay-inducing foot infections to carpal tunnel.   To me a job is something that you have to endure so that you can eat and have a warm place to sleep, until you are old enough to be considered functionally disabled and are then meagerly provided for by either the government or your family. I wish I could just do something menial and mindless for the rest of my life - to just be told to complete a bunch of simple tasks like digging holes or shelving books, or picking up garbage. I don't want to have to think anymore. I don't want to have to make any more decisions.

... I Have No Life

So instead of going to a party, I decided to stay home and work on a scene for my grad film. Fair enough.   It was straightforward enough until I got to the part where I started texturing the books on the shelf... I should've just made them all solid colours, but noooo... I have to do it the right way.   Any evening that involves downloading the frackin' Twilight font is not a good one.   Warning: There's a cartoon glowing vampire penis, a used cartoon tampon, and (mostly illegible) suggestive language in the following picture. If you can read the font on the Harry Potter books... I am very sorry. Also, I have nothing against Mormons, only Stephanie Meyer. I was having trouble coming up with a noun that started with the letter M that applied to her... Link: here, if anyone still wants to see it. D:

If Only I Knew

Sleepy's never been a big oatmeal person. It just tastes kinda bland and glorpy to her. Neil Gaiman had this totally ridiculous oatmeal recipe on his blog, though. It involves frying the oats in butter before adding liquid, which sounds like a totally ridiculous fatty thing to do... And it is frickin' delicious. Don't judge Sleepy. D:   I can tie the pokéwalker to my calf, shake my leg neurotically, and it counts as more steps than actually walking. My mom just bought a pedometer for herself to help regulate weight gain/loss, and I wish she had told me before she bought it, so that I could have just given her my pokéwalker instead... Yeah. I'm a horrible person.   Recently I've been giving chaining with the pokéradar a try, and it's pretty amazing. Just yesterday I caught 35 shinies, bringing up the shiny count this week to 64 (10 cubone, 10 ditto, 9 magnemite, 35 ralts). I feel like such a hacker looking into a PC box completely filled with shiny ralts. And what's even weirder, despite it being pretty easy to get lots of certain shinies, trading on various websites has taught me that many people will give their grandma's left mammary for a shiny pokémon. I have at least one of every event legendary* and have trades scheduled for even more. Now if only I knew this I would only have had to buy one pokémon game ever, and I could have used a combination of chaining, careful bug exploitation, and my internet people skillz to not have to physically attend events or buy more than one game.   Sorry about all the pokémon blogging. It's probably getting kinda annoying for the few people who do read Sleepy's blog.   *No one cares about this, but I have five celebi (most are WIN2011, but one of them is a 10ANIV), four shiny raikou, four shiny entei, three shiny suicune, three jirachi (GAMESTP, SMR2010, and WISHMKR), two TRU arceus, a SPACE C deoxys, an OBLIVIA shaymin, two darkrai (New Moon and ALAMOS), a ranger manaphy, a FAL2010 mew, and a TRU regigigas.   Edit: Oh... my god... ... I just realised that Pokedexes are shaped like gameboys. *slaps forehead* How did I never notice before? o_o

Animal Abuse?

So I got HeartGold in the mail a few days ago and it comes with this pedometer thing called a Pokewalker. I tried messing around with it, but it takes like 20 shakes to get a single Watt (form of currency) on there, and an hour of shaking only generates like 20-30 watts. Also, I think you're expected to bring the damn thing with you everywhere, which is kinda unrealistic... so... er.. I came up with a compromise     Is this considered animal abuse?

Sleepy Loves Crack Fic Too Much...

Okay, tvtropes was running an erofic contest a while back, and Sleepy decided to check out the thread... Gonna cut this, 'cuz it's pretty family unfriendly. Proceed at your own caution.   The second story was about a woman disguised as a zombie, lesbian raping a necromancer, chopping her head off, cutting her torso open, rolling around in the organs and then pleasuring herself with the severed head.   It was awesome. I was laughing and... getting uncomfortable feelings.... that were not related to disgust. But then again, that's only testament to how ****ed up Sleepy is. XD   Why can't Sleepy write awesome stuff like this and the centaur tranny pornfic that she read a while back?   As a side note, the first story that she read was about a woman who had the ability to heal just about any injury, and she ended up working in a BDSM whorehouse, where a man would skull**** her through her left eye, and wouldn't let it heal. And that particular story was actually kind of sweet, in a way. It ended somewhat happily at least.

Moar Pokeymans

I'm about halfway through Platinum now, with about 115 pokémon caught. Some kid was selling Pearl, Diamond and a Mario game for 10$ (together, not each), so even though I don't really need those, you just can't turn down a bargain like that.   It's pretty awesome, though. The save file on Diamond's been played for about 5 minutes. The kid had a turtwig and a starly and that was it. The Pearl however... Yeesh.   The kid had a save file on there (named PIAM) played for 50 hours, he hadn't even beaten the Elite Four yet, and he had all the legendaries traded to him from another player named JESUS plus he had a duplicate Palkia he'd caught himself. PIAM's team indicated that the kid who owned this cart before me was a total pokemon newb, though. Half of PIAM's team was traded to him from JESUS, and nearly his entire team was made up of Gen I staples... and instead of doing it the proper way and designating a junk pokémon as his HM mule, this kid had decided to teach crappy HM moves to almost every pokémon on his entire team. PIAM's team wasn't very diverse, either; other than HM moves, his pokémon only knew the really inaccurate high-damage 5 pp moves that they learned from leveling up. His team reeked of "I haven't played Pokémon since the original Red and Blue, but I'm afraid of trying new things so my friend is totally helping me out here". Good news for me, though. Free legendaries! And I don't have to go chasing around mesprit and co, wanting to slit my wrists!-.-   Meanwhile, my Platinum is extremely crappy. It freezes frequently - alarmingly frequently in The Underground. I have a strategy for getting goodies out of the underground, which involves digging walls until I see something that I can take out of The Underground, quickly leaving The Underground, and then saving before I return because the game will inevitably freeze every 1-3 minutes when I'm down there. I wonder if it's because the game itself isn't designed for the DS lite, or if it's because there's something else wrong with the game. There's also the really common bug of not being able to see levels of other Pokémon on the GTS, which I thought was something I did originally, until I looked it up. I think I might keep PIAM's save file so I can use that account to check the required levels of the pokémon I need to trade over the GTS. I heard that if you send your game to Nintendo they'll fix it for you, but they'll probably just piss on mine before mailing it back because I bought this dubious copy secondhand.

Four Years Behind! [email protected]

For Christmas I decided to use up some of the lei si money my relatives gave me on the latest Golden Sun game. It was disappointingly easy, with not a lot to explore or do compared to the first two games, and I beat it in only a couple of days. It got me back into playing the DS, however and I managed to score a used copy of Pokémon Platinum for 20$ as a result.   Holy poop, is this what I was missing?!? Why didn't anyone tell me?!   I couldn't get into Ruby/Sapphire for some reason, which was aided by the fact that someone stole my GBA, which had my copy of Ruby inside it. I've been more or less out of the pokeymans loop for the past 6-7 years, which is kind of weird... because I still read pokémon fanfiction... SHUT UP! MY MOM THINKS I'M COOL.   The GTS is really neat! I had heard that you could trade pokémon over the intarwebz, but I figured that the process must be really complicated or maybe you needed to buy some accessory to make it possible. 25 hours into the game I managed to score a chimchar for a male heracross I found in a honey tree. :/ I've also bred about 10 eevees so far. I think I might stop at 12, because I'm getting a huge backlog of unhatched eggs, but 16 was the original plan. I've also got pokédex fever now, and even though I'm not even halfway into the game I'm trying fervently to get every damn pokémon. I've gotten to the point that I'm catching at least 3 of every pokémon: one of each gender and a spare female, even more if the pokémon can evolve, so I have one of each evolved form as well. This is all to appease the compulsive urge telling me that I will need them in case I find a good offer in the GTS asking for a random 'mon that I happen to have... which was just fed even more by the fact that I managed to get that chimchar.   Soon enough I'm going to get to the point where I want the first, second and third-gen legendaries, and it's pretty damn unlikely that I'm going to find any non-hacked ones on the GTS that are requesting anything that I even have, or am willing to part with. I know exactly where this is going too...   I can probably get away with buying just Emerald + FR/LG and one of the HG/SS games, since the only version-exclusive legendaries they have are Groudon and Kyogre, and Emerald has both anyway. Plus I have the first Pokemon Colosseum, which probably hooks up to my GBA somehow, and I have Ho-Oh, the legendary cats/dogs and both Groudon and Kyogre on there... Which means I probably have to buy another accessory at some point. I'm completely stumped about how I'm supposed to get Mew, Celebi, Jirachi and Manaphy. I've been to one Nintendo event in my life, and it was back in like 1998 when Pokémon was super mainstream... and also I didn't even know it was going on at the time until I got there. I doubt they take place in the middle of the mall with the big pikachu car parked outside in 2011. How do you even go to those nowadays? Do they set aside conventions or something? Do you have to drive all the way down to the nearest Nintendo headquarters?   This is all while I have a thesis to do. D:   Why did I ever get into Pokémon? A severe crack addiction is less time consuming, and probably cheaper.   --------   Also completely irrelevant, but when I was typing out lei si I couldn't figure out how to romanize it. I typed out lai see at first before reading it out loud and realising that pronounced that way, it means ****ing yourself. X)

So Many Books Sleepy Hasn't Read :o

From egg's blog originally, but stolen from Tabt! Apparently you're only supposed to have read six. Sleepy fails at counting, though because she counted 37 when looking straight at the list, but now counts 39. Edit: actually 40. 41.

Odd Plots

Over the past few weeks I've been having some Grad Film Anxiety. With capital letters.   In my case this takes the form of tons and tons of ideas, plots and premises going through my head, none of which will ever see the light of day. Most of them are ideas about weird superpowers, but one of them was an amazing dream that would make a cool videogame... that also included weird superpowers   I was thinking about a girl who had the power to reappear somewhere nearby whenever she died. The main drawback of this is that when she came back, she would be exactly as she was at the age of 13 years, 97 days, 8 hours, 32 minutes and 4 seconds. When she dies, every bit of matter that had made up her "original" body disappears and remateralizes to make her "new" body. Depending on how long it was since the last time she died, she might leave a corpse/parts of a corpse, she might leave the food she had eaten in various stages of digestion, or she might not leave anything at all. Every time she dies she loses any skills, abilities, or associations she didn't have at thirteen, but she retains all her long-term memories, even newer ones. For instance, if at 45 she loved someone deeply and died, in her next life she would rationally remember why she loved the person without being told, but it would be like knowing a story about someone else. When she came to life again she would have an irrational dislike for people she disliked at thirteen, be wearing the same clothes and be at the same state of fatigue, hunger, thirst and other such bodily functions as she was at the exact time she was "frozen". She would be the exact same person as she was then, except she had the additional memories of all the other someone elses she used to be.   After a couple of iterations of this, she gets sick of having to go through life as a different person with the memories of who you used to be, but none of the affect. After thinking about possible solutions she finally decides that at 10 PM each night she will commit suicide and come back to life as the same person every day. This way she wouldn't have to experience all the massive changes that come along with waiting decades for yourself to die naturally, and she would have a sort of eternal youth and health, even at the cost of being eternally underage.   I don't really know where the idea goes from there, but I sort of imagine Suicide-Girl (as I've dubbed her) to bounce around from orphanage to orphanage, travelling around towns as a perpetual street urchin, or performing extremely life-threatening services for money. I was toying with the idea of Suicide-Girl selling a kidney for money, and then killing herself right after she can get far away enough so the buyers won't find her.   ----   Another idea I've had is a rather weird one about a society of quadrepedal creatures that base their economy on prostitution. Theft, especially theft from the community, is considered the greatest crime that can be committed, and is punishable by things ranging from mutilation to death, depending on severity. The creatures are sexually dimorphic. Females never stop growing, but they do slow down around the age of 20 or so, which is about twice the age when males stop growing. There are periods of frequent rain on their planet, which happen only once every 15 years or so, and lasts for about a year. This time is about the only time the creatures get together. Most of the time the females are solitary obligate carnivores with large territories, and the males travel in packs from territory to territory, usually as rape gangs (which is still not as bad as theft).   ----   The dream I had took place in a post-apocalyptic setting where I awakened the spirit of the world. She sent my friends and me on a quest to restore all the lesser elemental spirits to sanity, and in some cases, life. In the process she gave us all powers. My best friend* was given the ability to aim and shoot with a near-impossible level of speed and accuracy. Our leader was given the power to move almost as fast as sound for short bursts, and a secondary gift of being able to withstand massive impact, heat and friction. The blonde boy who was also my friend could use a sort of geokinetic ability to create massive tunnels that we could drive our van around in covertly. I was given the ability to turn invisible.   The four of us went around killing nature spirits and restoring them to their proper states of mind. I remember defeating a huge groudon-type dragon and traveling through a city overrun with survivor-gangs. The only way we made it was with a careful use of my invisibility and the blonde kid's tunnels. There was even an ocean spirit who could take the form of a gargantuan tortoise and ferried us across the ocean.   ----   My favourite scenario, however, is the one where there is a race of winged humanoids that deliver mail and goods, and work in emergency services in a world that has no natural oil reserves. Most things are solar powered, and solar batteries haven't been developed to the point where aircraft could safely cross the ocean. Ships are also slow and cumbersome and most deliveries take months to reach their proper destination.   * For some reason she was Revy from Black Lagoon. Lord knows why she didn't already have improbable aiming skills.

Er

Sleepy was browsing across a forum where ER technicians post about things that they've learned from patients. Some of her favourites are:   If you're a 13 year old girl with a long arm, fiberglass cast on it's totally OK to go swimming at the beach (she didn't even try the usless bag with duct tape trick). When your dripping, sand filled cast starts to itch be sure to use a bent coat hanger to pull out all the cast padding. Since that won't work (I swear I'm not making this up) go ahead and pour salt down the cast on the assumption that it will soak up the water. Once your arm is a red, macerated mess come on down to the ED.
Aside from the stupidity of this course of action this girl also had a weird affect so I asked if she was developmentally delayed. This thoroughly annoyed the girl and her mother but the dad said, "Well I can see why you might think that but no."
Got a call to a residence with a complaint of a male who had "knots in his stomach" I'm trying to think what it could be...hernia, aneurysm....whatever. My partner and I pull up to the house. FIFTEEN people are standing outside the door on the steps.
I had to ask....where is my patient. The mom points at her son and said he had "knots pop up on his stomach" I looked at this thin 15 year old male,
"Let me see the knots."
A perfect six pack was his knots.
I asked, 'what brought on these "knots".' He did a perfect example of a crunch and said his stomach hurt everytime he did that.
If you have a severe case of diarrhea, the BEST cure would be two laxatives...that way you can just get rid of all of it and be done with it.
If you come to the ER (by EMS of course) with 2 days of priapism which you've had before and I aspirate and inject your penis with phenylephrine and it starts to go down don't sit in your bed and stroke yourself until it gets hard again
When your 97-year old mother trips and falls on the floor and doesn't say anything or really seem to move at all, you should definetly wait 5-6 days before calling EMS. If she starts to feel cold (even though she hasn't said that she's cold), just cover her with blankets and surround her with space heaters. She's probably just sleeping and will get up when she's good and ready.
Despite popular belief...coat hangers are not a cure for constipation
If you diagnose a patient with gonorrhea, be sure to ask if she has any family members she would like to treat as well, because I was at a loss when I was asked the question "Should I treat my dog, too?"
Taking a whole bottle of diet pills at one time will not make you lose weight any faster for that date you have tommorrow night.
If your family/doctor/government whatever has taken away your drivers license because you have frequent seizures and refuse to take your pheno, please use a riding lawn-mower as your primary means of transportation. Chances are, you won't seize, hit a telephone pole, burn your leg and scalp on the mower as you fall off of it, and cause a power outage in your surrounding area.
If you decide to show off how tough you are to your girlfriend by picking up a rattlesnake and swinging it around by its tail, remember that it does have the ability to move and can very easily bite you on the thigh. Then act all surprised when you have to be treated with anti-venom and admitted and complain that "you fudgeing docs ruined my family's bbq.
Please don't attempt to hang yourself from a doorknob. It really won't work, no matter how hard you lean against it. Yes, points for creativity, but the nurses will laugh at you behind your back. Don't feel too bad, though. They laugh at everybody.
If you are 17 and very drunk and are brought to the ER with a face that looks like hamburger and an upper lip that needs to be put back together, please just say you got into a fight. We would prefer not to know that someone bet you $20 that you couldn't punch yourself unconscious (and you won).
  Now Sleepy almost wishes she went into medicine XD

Pride

Earlier today Sleepy went to pride... with her mom. X) Sleepy's mom's reaction to the nude sixty year old man was priceless. Frankly it was a little amazing how often Sleepy's mother kept pointing out men dressed in drag. "Oh my god, that one's a man! Look Christine! Look!" "Oh! Look! Look! That one too!" And then she started discussing how successful the drag queens were at passing as women in Cantonese with her friend. "His legs are too thick, but his dress makes him look so skinny and feminine!"   This year they seemed to have many random non-queer things at pride... There were a lot of labour unions marching, and one from MTI community college, the college with the most frikkin annoying jingle in the world. Sleepy made a comment about climbing on top of one of the low-rise apartment buildings so she could snipe them and do the world a favour. There was also a float where the proud pitbull owners of Vancouver were marching with their dogs, which was a little odd. And surprisingly, there was a float for TD Canada Trust, a bank here, but they'd really gone all the way by adding scantily clad men and women dancing in leather BDSM gear. Sleepy found the contrast between TD's image and their float far more shocking than any old man penis or lesbian nipples she'd seen today. o_o   It seems like Pride's become less about queerness over the years and more about advertising businesses and unrelated causes. The only thing Sleepy can really say is that she feels ambivalent.

Goat Semen

Earlier this evening Fini showed Sleepy a prank call to a goat semen company. After lolling at the thought of collecting 30-50 gallons of semen from a single goat, she decided to do a bit of investigating on her own. Apparently goat jizz sells for up to $200 a shot. Okay, admittedly that is a very pretty goat, but man, he must ejaculate little flecks of gold or something.   The website never gets too detailed, but there are a few funny things lurking around on their information pages.   *"To help insure a successful collection your buck(s) MUST be “flushed out” This means he needs to be able to ejaculate 5 to 6 times and then put in a pen by himself 5 to 7 days prior to collection day. To do this you may have to alter your breeding program by sacrificing one or two does." SACRIFICE THEM TO THE DARK LORD TO ENSURE A BOUNTIFUL HARVEST OF GOAT JIZZ!   *"You, the buck owner need to put a lead rope on your buck and actually see him ejaculate and give a good hip thrust 5 to 6 times over a few days time 4 to 5 days prior to collection." (This is in the context to make sure that your male goats are "flushed out" and don't have any dead/unhealthy sperm kicking around in their nuts)
