(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

It's kind of BS that the game forces you to decide where the museum goes literally one day before you get the ability to travel outside the starting area, despite Blathers spending that day in a tent instead of a permanent structure. Like, there are a number of quality-of-life problems with the game, but that one feels like the devs actively trolling players.

 I wound up choosing a map in which the river bifurcates the playfield... twice. It branches literally feet from the waterfall, and creates and island on an island. I wound up with about 45% of the map to play with right now.

 

That's how the first couple of days go for everyone. You'll have full access soon, if you don't already today. You'll get a jumping pole, a ladder, and a request to build a bridge. I see it as the game teaching you that Animal Crossing is all about patience - there are things you can do today, and other things unfold as time progresses.

 

I landed on a Tarantula Island a couple of weeks ago, and I've been saving that bounty plus a bunch of other bugs for the next time Flick showed up. He finally did yesterday, and today I have my basement.

 

IMG_20200505_202129.jpg

$456k on tarantulas alone, minus the three I had him turn into a trophy. I made over $700k overall from him. It's been a while since he last appeared, and I had a whole room full of high-value bugs plus a bunch in storage.

Yeah, I got the pole plans from blather, and have happily hopping around since. Also managed to catch enough stuff to build the museum, AND pay off my first house loan. Going to wait till after I get the store donated to move up my house.

 

So how does that island ticket work? I got one from nook for buying the house (or something.) and I'd like to check it out eventually, but I want a rough idea of what to expect. I don't need nintendo online for it, do I? Cause that lapsed a while ago and I didn't renew.

The ticket allows you to fly to a mystery island. In the beginning, they're all useful for getting more basic materials, bamboo, and coconuts. Sometimes you'll find a fossil, or a new villager. Later, you'll hope to land on one of the rare islands for hard-to-find fish, bugs, or gold ore. Here's a guide I use:
https://wuffs.org/ac...ysterytour.html

 

I got Tarantula Island once at night, which was perfect. I also got the one with only water-related insects, including those horrible Giant Water Bugs that are worth a couple grand apiece. The other ten or fifteen trips I've taken have been just normal islands. Luck of the draw.

Alright, so the trip island was smaller than I hoped for, but not by much. I almost got enough iron ore for the shop, but I also have another ticket, so I'll just take another trip tonight and see what it's like at night. I also found a stoned alligator camped out, and invited her back to the community.

 

Probably going to bite me in the ass doing that, but what the hell, better than trapped on a deserted island.

Has anyone caught a villager singing in the plaza? Some of them will do that, and if you place a music player close by and turn it on, they'll start singing along to whatever it's playing. It's adorable.

I have! The first time, Ruby was singing by herself for a long time. The second, it was a different villager and she had an audience.

A very good day. I replaced Soleil (no hamster should have bleach blonde and a spray tan) with Marina, and sold a pile of silos as the hot item for over 250,000. I used a trick I saw on youtube where you clap for Orville at the desk until he blushes and it improves your chances of encountering rare islands and villagers.
