It's like how the whole "alpha male" thing doesn't really show up in wolf packs in the wild.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 01:54 AM)

Aaaaand another myth busted.

@  CORVUS : (24 April 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Quite welcome! :)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 09:51 PM)

@Corvus Huh, did not know that part. Thanks for imparting knowledge!

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 09:27 PM)

No because it's true.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 April 2019 - 09:17 PM)

Would I be jaded if i said that's a good lesson about people as well?

@  CORVUS : (23 April 2019 - 09:01 PM)

Overstated risk. Most observations of sexual cannibalism in the Praying Mantis occurred in captivity, versus nature. When entomologists began observing them in nature instead, they found that sexual cannibalism took place around 30% of the time. Basically, if a male Mantis avoids thin, hungry females, his chances are pretty good. #yesimanerd

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 07:52 PM)

Are you a male mantis?

There's a joke about going out with a bang to be made here.

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 06:38 PM)

I would hope getting laid is preferred over dying :p

@  Nevermore : (23 April 2019 - 05:20 PM)

Don't we all want to get laid?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2019 - 04:53 PM)

I'd spend the first few loops just taking an extended nap.

@  Dekafox : (23 April 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Endless death time loops certainly happen enough in Star Trek

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 03:50 PM)

That's not what I had in mind but if that is what you would do in that scenario then that is pretty messed up. I would not want to be stuck in a perpetual loop of death. More like getting laid but that is just me.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 01:58 PM)

Happy death day to you!

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 01:45 PM)

.... I would love that. To be stuck in an endless loop where no one remembers what happened... The possibilities :D

@  ZakuConvoy : (23 April 2019 - 01:43 PM)

Are you stuck in a Groundhogs Day situation? Because if you are, you need to tell the rest of us so we can take advantage, too.

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 11:10 AM)

Lol today needs to end asap so that I can start over tomorrow

@  Ashley : (21 April 2019 - 10:08 PM)

They frequently do, but yeah there's no rule. Google will usually answer it for a specific restaurant, though

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 April 2019 - 02:57 PM)

Depends on the restaurant and the area. There's no universal rule about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2019 - 02:41 PM)

I thought restaurants were one of the few things that stayed open on holidays, along with movie theatres and the like

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 April 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Well here I am hungry on a Sunday afternoon and I head to Chipotle only to find out right then and there that the place is closed for Easter. Yay.

@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I prefer later shifts myself, but my 3 day weekend shift isn't bad. Nice to work without those administration busy bodies poking around.

@  Nevermore : (19 April 2019 - 04:12 AM)

Yeah, traffic is a plus as well. Rarely got any trouble getting to work on late shift (even with the neverending construction site on the highway), and when my shift is over, there's hardly any traffic at all anymore.

@  MEDdMI : (18 April 2019 - 06:27 PM)

while I don't have weekends consistently off, working 2nd shift isn't so bad. I'm more likely to do stuff before work than after (when I'm already tired). Plus no rush hour traffic

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 April 2019 - 05:03 PM)

Switching shifts constantly is never good for one's health. There was a time when I worked overnights steady for about 2 years; did wonders for my health, as well

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Don't miss early shift (and especially switching back and forth every two weeks) a bit.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Man, permanent late shift really has done wonders for my overal well-being. Never having to get up early for work, staying up late, weekends off... a ot of my coworkers think I'm crazy, but late shift is really my preferred shift.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

(My total lack of sleep on that day might have contributed, though.)

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

At noon, it was warm.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

On Monday, we went on strike early in the morning, I was also wearing to jackets and gloves and my toes and fingers were freezing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 April 2019 - 04:31 PM)

Nope, right now my days are doing that. Frigid at night (Well, just below zero, but still.) and warm enough to be always be ill prepared during the day.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Today it's so warm I had to take a shower to wash off the sweat after a lengthy bike trip.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

This past Friday I was wearing two jackets and winter gloves outside and took a hot bath when I returned home.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

Is "April weather" an issue in other countries as well, or is that specifically a German phenomenon?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Well, when you understand the history of the area it make sense. It's basically a series of countries buying the place, moving in, saying "we rule you people now", and the locals shrugging and responding, "okay, you have fun with that".

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2019 - 07:58 AM)

When did we all turn into Henry Higgins?

@  unluckiness : (16 April 2019 - 03:16 AM)

To be fair, most Americans can't get the hang of English, so I can understand why.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:15 AM)

(And yeah, Calliope is a Greek muse, not French, but the street was named BY the French when they took over.)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:10 AM)

In New Orleans there's a bunch of streets with French names that are pronounced by locals with a more English emphasis, for example "Calliope Street" is pronounced "CAL-lee-ope".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 11:56 PM)

I figured as much for Canadians.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 11:37 PM)

hm; whenever I've heard people talk about the school they said it the same way as the cathedral...but I guess that's in Canada, so they're probably more familiar with the cathedral than the school

@  Dracula : (15 April 2019 - 11:11 PM)

There's plenty of place names in the US like that. Around here we have an "el doh-RAY-doh," and up north there's a Cairo that's pronounced "kay-roh"

@  RichardT1977 : (15 April 2019 - 09:56 PM)

Yeah, the common pronunciation of the University is probably the reason most Americans don't pronounce the Cathedral name correctly.

@  Arazyr : (15 April 2019 - 08:03 PM)

That's my understanding of how the two are supposed to be pronounced as well.

@  Echowarrior : (15 April 2019 - 07:42 PM)

When I'm talking about the cathedral, I say "noh-treh dahme". When I talk about the university, I say "noh-ter dayme". I don't see a problem with that.

Saw the other four eps. So much stuff is happening but don't know what it's building up to! I'm excited but I don't know for what, haha.

Knight - still dead. No comment on relationship
Nap - die already, geez. Also have a theory on who it is
Junk - I thought THIS was going to be an awesome Janna ep but...

Moon's arms are normal.  The dark staining (which wasn't always consistent) was removed when she was in that magical land (that yellow water stuff got rid of it).  I'm guessing she doesn't know how it happened or care to tell Eclipsa how to remove it.  Not sure if Eclipsa cares either way.

 

I had the same thought about the Black Velvet spell.

 

I do think the magic is from Meteora via Glossaryck.

 

Regarding Queen Moon and her ancestors, not sure how they developed magic not being originally of the royal blood.  If that was addressed in the Book of Spells that was released or not (I have it, just haven't read the whole thing).  You'll note in the latest episode that Festivia's room had no magic spells (I seem to recall she didn't do any magic).  She was the Queen to have replaced Meteora as Eclipsa's descendant.

So...sounds like another episode my cable company decided wasn't "new" so I didn't get it.  Great.  What are the full titles of "Junk" and "Name" so I can find them in rebroadcast?

 

As for "how are non-royals doing magic?" remember...we've seen how the first queen got picked.  It's not the bloodline, it's the wand...if it's anything at all.  It may be that all Mewmans are magic-capable, but it takes something to unlock their potential.

Exactly!  Just like how Marco was able to do so when Star went on her magic-realm dive.

Could it be you're missing them because they air on Disney first and then XD later?

Whoa, which was Festivia's room? There were all the different marks but couldn't tell what spells were inside.

Hmm, Star's been doing rainbow fist punches but I'm pretty sure she's also been doing narwhal blasts and warnicorn stampedes. Is she summoning her animal magic elements from the wand still? Unless the rooms are... general magic like the golden pool?

can't recall the title of ep when Moon was in the golden pool. I recall Star trying to get Moon to remember herself but also forgetting herself.

Btw, on the Meteora's Lesson ep, the origin of Mewni has American Pilgrims accidentally getting into a primordial magic pool area so... What's the time frame? I know time moves differently between dimensions but it doesn't seem to be the case between earth and Mewni.

Also the golden magic pool was filled with... Gators? Or are they lizards like Toffee? Toffee is a pure magic being?

If their regenerating powers were inherent, why was Rastacore so afraid like it's the first time? I'm going to assume that Glossyrick broke his arm the FIRST time because he visited Toffee and GAVE him that power. Cuz he was messing/creating the real history then.

The room they first saw the spell in.  I believe there was a painting of Festivia in it.

 

Not sure how Star's magic works now, if she just has a direct connection to the spells in that she used in the wand that way, or if they're just summoned some other way.  I wonder if there is an official explanation.

 

Time between Earth and Mewni seems equal.  If those were Earth pilgrims (which they look to be), they must be from a few hundred years ago.  Which would make sense with how many Queens of Mewni there have been.

 

I think those gators are just that.  Not sure if Toffee and the other lizard people are magic.  I'm guessing the regeneration is just a trait that the show creators gave them because certain lizards are able to regenerate parts of their body.

I really want to see Eclipsa let loose again like she did on last season's finale.

Saw them. Holy cow, these are great eps!

Well, except for Boy and Dragon Cycle, which was fluff. But I know a friend and probably a gaggle of folks who'll probably go crazy over it. Especially the next talent over. And, ugh, it's obvious why he did that. I would think she would figure it out, d'uh.

The Queen and Monster, I agree with Janna later on. Yeah. Er, can't place th accent. Italian? Latino? Marco is already Latino.

Cornonation. Wow. But needed more evidence. Star... can't be that smart (is she? Can she? I didn't see it myself).

Also, dang it, I want season 1 fluid fight animation again. Or even season 2 (MHC vs Toffee Ludo is still the best executed fight scene). I can see how awesome the fight could have been (doing those excellent moves and the MHC doing stunts we haven't seen before) but could have been better with a bigger budget? Shuuuucks.

Don't get me started on season 1 animation compared to the following seasons.  The first 6 to 8 episodes of season 1 were so beautiful.
