So I just laughed uncontrollably for about five minutes...

Laughing, Insane
It was prompted by NOTHING!

I blame the large amounts of insanity in my diet.

Griffiths is best textbook author

"The proportionality factor σ (not to be confused with surface charge) is an empirical constant that varies from one material to another; it's called the conductivity of the medium. Actually, the handbooks usually list the reciprocal of σ, called the resistivity: ρ = 1/σ (not to be confused with charge density—I'm sorry, but we're running out of Greek letters, and this is the standard notation)."

This is the man who allegedly can teach physics to gerbils. I wish I could take a class with him simply for his wit and skillz at teaching.

It's almost like I'm back in Ohio. Except in Ohio it snowed in late October.

Eh, close enough.

Voting and such

Voting, Election, Bandwagon
You people are all slow; I voted weeks ago :P (absentee FTW!). Thanks to all who voted, whether it was Democrat, Republican, or Bull Moose. Statisticians really appreciate having a good sample size for such things. :P

(But seriously, voting is important. Exercise those rights!)

Not copying Squish at all...

Normal - Togekiss
Fighting - Lucario
Water - Milotic
Grass - Breloom
Fire - Chandelure/Volcarona
Electric - Rotom
Poison - Haunter
Ghost - Shedinja
Psychic - Lugia
Bug - Galvantula
Flying - Zapdos
Dragon - Zekrom
Rock - Tyranitar
Ground - Steelix
Ice - Lapras
Steel - Magnezone
Dark - Zoroark

Gen I: 3 Gen II: 3 Gen III: 3 Gen IV: 4 Gen V: 4/5 (if you count both Chandelure and Volcarona)

I couldn't decide between Chandelure and Volcarona, because they be beastly. I almost put Giratina with Zekrom, but Zekrom has the electric factor going for him, which, if you couldn't tell, I like. :D

Also, my favorites are very spread among gens. Akano does not play favorites with his generations of Pokémon.

(Gen II all the way! :P)

Pokémon White 2: Postgame

Posted by Akano , in Life Nov 02 2012 · 608 views

While I technically beat the Elite Four on Tuesday, I thought I'd share my team here.
  • Anubis (Lucario)
  • Tornadus-T
  • Vanessa (Emboar)
  • Zoroark
  • Tesla (Magnezone)
  • Golduck - HM slave

I couldn't nickname Zoroark due to it being N's originally, and Tornadus I just never got around to nicknaming after I got him from Dream Radar. :P This was actually the first time I've ever raised any of these Pokémon for a team, so it was a very different game experience this time around. I wish Lucario were just a bit bulkier, because he can dole out punishment but can't really take it. I love Zoroark's speed, but man is he frail. Emboar was all right, but I definitely prefer Samurott. Magnezone was pretty awesome, too; his Special Attack is beastly.

I should raise a Chandelure when I replay through White. He looks pretty awesome...

Set Review: 10228 Haunted House

Posted by Akano , in Set Review, LEGO Oct 30 2012 · 627 views
Haunted House, Review

Posted Image Posted Image
Oh noes! I forgot to hang the awesome picture of Frankie in his white tux on prom night!

The bedroom looks like your typical undead sleeping pad. With pictures hanging of friends and family, some undead deer skull, a rickety unfurnished bed, and an empty wardrobe, it's ideal for the everyday vampire who's trying to get away from all the stresses of life. The writing desk at the top of the stairs is in a nice corner by the window(s) so the maximum amount of moonlight is available when writing to those creepy, alive relatives of yours. I also like that there's a railing at the top of the stairs, but no railing following them down to the first floor. Clearly safety is of no concern during the transition between stories.

Go read it. Be enthralled. Clean up your drool on the way out.

Sandy Update 3

Posted by Akano , in Life Oct 30 2012 · 433 views
Hurricane, Updates
(12:43 p.m. EDT) So, Sandy is currently doing his/her (its?) stuff outside my apartment. LOTS O' RAIN!

No snow or high force winds yet, though. I think that stuff is being saved for later.

In other GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE, I'm technically still alive.

UPDATE 2 (3:40 p.m. EDT): Winds have been picking up, rain is unrelenting, and my apartment is cold. This calls for hoodie & blanket times! 8D

Wow, it's really raging out there...

UPDATE 3 (10/30/2012 at 2:29 p.m.): Things have calmed down. This morning whilst being sleepily half-awake I heard cleanup trucks outside. At least two trees are down that I can see from my apartment windows. Fun stuff.

Also, the power went off a couple times last night and this morning, but it's currently on (hence my ability to type this :P).
