My Very Own Paradox

Shit, I don't know.

Me: “What browser are you on?”

Client: “Google.”

Me: “Google Chrome?”

Client: “No, just regular Google.”

Me: “That’s the site. I want to know the browser.”

Client: “Google.”

Me: “No.”

Client: “Look, we can have this conversation forever, man. But when I hit the internet logo, Google comes up!”

Me: “Okay…What does that “internet logo” look like?

Client: “…A fiery fox, I guess. But that’s irrelevant.”

Fuck. That’s just sad. There’s ignorant and then there’s just plain stupid.

Damn.

I love this so much

We are also one of three nations without paid maternity leave, and the only developed (“first world”) country without maternity leave.

We are the only Western country without universal healthcare.

It costs more to have a child in the US than in any other country.

In many countries you don’t have to pay for college, and if students do pay, it’s nowhere near the amounts that the US students pay.

I could continue, but I think I’ve made my point.

As I’ve said for years, America sucks

helicalscorn asked: What is the reference or inside joke that I'm missing with the Man punching the bear?

markrosewater:

There’s no inside reference. It’s just man (well, the khan of Temur) punching a bear. You should not need any context to enjoy it.

Sombody asked me if it was possible to “go infinite” with the new Teferi (C14) and The Chain Veil (M15). Here’s the way I’ve found to do it. I’m sure there are others.
We’ll need:
Teferi. We’ll use his -1 to untap the Chain Veil and our mana sources.
The Chain Veil. We’ll use this to re-use Teferi.
Mana Rocks. We’ll need the ability to make at least 9 mana with three permanents or fewer. At least one of that mana needs to be blue. (Three copies of something that taps for 3 of anything, like Gilded Lotus, is one way to do this; one permanent that taps for a lot like Tolarian Academy is another. Just remember that we need to make blue mana for Viral Drake.)
Viral Drake. Spending Mana to proliferate lets us put more counters on Teferi so he won’t die. (Somebody suggested Ajani Steadfast, but Ajani would die himself after several activations, so he doesn’t let us go infinite.)
How it works:
Tap your Gilded Lotuses (or what have you) for mana. Name blue for at least one of the Lotuses; the color for the others doesn’t matter.
Activate Teferi’s -1 ability. Target the three Gilded Lotuses and The Chain Veil.
Activate The Chain Veil. You now have 5 mana left in your pool.
Activate Viral Drake’s ability to proliferate, putting an additional loyalty counter on Teferi. You now have 1 mana left in your pool.
Repeat.
Each time you repeat will net you one extra mana. Loop any number of times for essentially limitless mana.
You’re welcome.

Khans of Tarkir: Don’s wild speculation

Okay, let’s cover what we know for sure so far (as revealed at SDCC and further clarified in Mark Rosewater’s Blogatog - major source here):

  • Khans block is a Large-Small-Large block.
  • The middle set (“Dewey”) gets drafted with each of the large sets (source).
  • The wedges that each clan represents are centered around a single color, with one ally color and one enemy color (rather than the expected “centered around a color and its two enemy colors”).
  • There is a “very good reason” why the wedges are oriented thus (source).
  • The block is not a wedge block, but KTK is a wedge set. (source)
  • The story is a time-travel story, and is about change. (source)

Now, putting this all together, here is my wild speculation (this is ALL CONJECTURE ON MY PART and in no way official from anywhere):
