Your Enigma banner's second subroutine read "-> Do one net damage" oddly enough. Not sure if those are manually added or if they're looked up from somewhere, but if it's the latter you'll want to fix your database.
“The federal statute is invalid, for no legitimate purpose overcomes the purpose and effect to disparage and injure those whom the State, by its marriage laws, sought to protect in personhood and dignity,” Justice Kennedy wrote. “By seeking to displace this protection and treating those persons as living in marriages less respected than others, the federal statute is in violation of the Fifth Amendment.” #DOMA#SCOTUS#Civilrights
I just picked up the core set this weekend, and I love it so far. But now that I'm looking into the expansions...what have I gotten myself into? It looks like it would cost ~$200 to just get caught up with the current cards... is there a good strategy for catching up? Is it even necessary, or can I (reasonably) take on the new adventures without the cards of the old?
i'm a little late to this discussion, but http://talesfromthecards.wordpress.com/ has a great new player buyer's guide. I'm a new player, and didn't want to pick up everything , just a few additional quests and extra cards. I ended up buying 6 APs and 1 big expansion - total cost ended up being around $100
+Paul Beakley, now that I've played it I agree. Once it's going, it runs quite smoothly, but the manual seems like it's designed as a reference guide for people who already understand the rules. It's like jumping into a cold lake - the first plunge is terrifying, and the water is a shock, but once you're in it's quite nice.
It seems like fictional objects are closer to the Platonic ideal of forms than their meatspace counterparts. There are many concrete examples of chairs, but each has a recognizable "chairness" that exists separate from an individual physical manifestation. Fictional objects maintain the link to an ideal without having a link to a physical analogue.
Is there a precedent for this? Even during the cold war, heads of state were never denied airspace. The US better be careful, it seems like we're recklessly throwing our weight around with no thought for the future consequences.
Makes me wonder what else #snowden is about to leak...
It's broader than that. The decision also covers any "naturally occurring" gene sequence. This means that Monsanto can no longer patent genes they isolate from plants. It also may invalidate the patents on entire genomes held by the University of California.
It looks like a car repair shop, but every beer I've had here has been phenomenal. This is a brewery for beer lovers. The only food is peanuts, the only decoration is brew kettles, but it's easily the best beer west of the sound.
