Re: Motivation

I find that my motivation and the amount of time left until the deadline are usually inversely proportional.

But what do I know, I'm replying to this thread in lieu of working on my English assignment, which is due tomorrow. :D

Yes, it is the right place :) Although that's pretty obvious by comparing the two pictures.

If you post a new challenge, I'll link to it from the first post. Also, what do you mean by restrictions?

Re: Fantasy Rules Committee

Any rule from now on (this one included) must begin with the following phrase: "By decree of His Majesty, King oagersnap..."

Note: "oagersnap" is pronounced in three syllables, so it doesn't break the previous rule.

Disagree. Ravenna is big if it's talking about the Province as a whole. But, based on that circle, we already know he's within the city, unless I'm not understanding something. Shouldn't we get more specific than that? Feel free to kick me if I'm off base. [edit] Also, we get a hint after question ...

What you're saying here is equivalent to asking: "What's the point of books? Nobody reads them anyway", just because you don't read books. Likewise, just because you only use math for addition and substraction, that doesn't mean it's the same for everybody else. Mathematics is very theoret...
