Re: 2073: "Kilogram"

In my Starfinder campaign, I redefined a meter to 5 feet, so all the little squares on the maps would be one meter.

How big is the radius on that fireball? 4 Absalom Meters.

It's amazing, the prescience of the Ancients of Golarion for building all their structures in meter increments.

Re: 0854: "Learning to Cook"

Wow - I'd expect this kind fo debate from Mac vs. PC, not buy vs. build on food. Randall - I'm a Somervillan. If you truly do not cook much and would like to have a few good recipes or techniques, I'd be glad to provide a lesson and meal. On the more complex side, I also make chocolates, charcuterie...

Re: 0854: "Learning to Cook"

If you're going to be geeks, be geeks. Use software that plans your meals based on an optimal use of ingredients, like Cook'n or MasterCook. Make your own, if you really feel like it. Day 1: Ground beef + buns + potatoes + asparagus + eggs = burgers, french fries, and asparagus w/a fried egg on top ...

Re: "Time Machine" Discussion

Ah, but all your cells are replaced every 7 years. So you can go back and kill yourself, you just need to wait. Consider this the Time Travel version of waiting one hour after eating before going swimming. "oooh, temporal cramp!" I suppose you couldn't go into the past immediately because ...

Re: "Simultaneous" Discussion

There was a young man named Fisk,
Whose fencing was exceedingly brisk.
So fast was his action
that the Fitzgerald contraction
reduced his sword to a disk.

This would be sad, applied to the current comic, until you realize they are still in the same bedframe of reference.
