    Screw all you young people. Back in my day, we had 150 Pokemans and MC Hammer was the shit.

    I know I am not old, but being 25 and hearing people say they are 18...I just don't know what to say. Haha. Feels like yesterday that I was just turning 21.

    The rest are resistant (or double-resistant).

    Hi all. I'm a huge pokemon player. I was told at the last PAX East that there was a large pokemon community here. I love to trade pokemon as I breed pokemon for others to use in tournaments. If you have requests, let me know!

    Question to the gym leaders. I know we all joke about "even if you lose, as long as you show you love your pokemon you can maybe get a badge," but how often does that really happen? I don't envision you guys giving badges to everyone that loses, but I am not a gym leader. Heh.

    I remember the song playing on the radio and MTV. Yes when MTV actually aired music videos. That should tell you something about my age.

    Random: When I typed " Vanilla Ice", all that came to mind was "No no!! You see, their song goes like this <insert clip>. MY song goes like this <insert clip>. They are completely different!!". (hehe lets see if any of you young-ins know what the heck Im talking about!!!

    Rarely, to be honest. Most matches really aren't that close.

    Here's some things that can sway me into giving a badge even if you lose:
    - The match being really close and coming down to a lucky miss or switch.
    - Age. If you're under 13 or so and not a rude jerk. :P
    - If people had an interesting team that's obviously not competitive but raised with heart. (RainbowTunnel might actually get one with her four shuckles. :P)
    - If you're not going to be able to rematch me at all.
    - Technical difficulties. At Prime there was one challenger that kept blue-screening my DS somehow. O.o
    - Buying me a drink at the pubcrawl. (Hey, I never said I was objective!)

    And that is one badge down...

    Should I bring my DS to the Pre-PAX Dinner? Are any gym leaders? Heh.

    I am heading to my friend's apartment tomorrow to watch it for a week. Training begins soon!

    Last night I stayed up way past my bedtime leveling up. I've now got 4 of my 6 pokes up to or over level 50. Two more to go - hopefully finishing this weekend (both are starting around 30ish). Last step will be checking each to make sure there are no moves I really want them to learn at higher levels - otherwise I'll be all set to have my tail kicked by all the gym leaders.

    The closest I've ever come to EV training was raising my girl from an egg with one of those hold items that boosts a specific stat on level-up. In retrospect, I wonder if that was a good idea, since she has one astronomically, lunatically good stat and a bunch of kind of rubbish ones.

    Maybe I'll just feed her vitamins until she speeds up a little.

    Yay! :D I don't expect to win against anyone, but this warms my heart.


    I don't know how to bring this up more subtly, so I'm just going to BAM put it out there:

    Anyone who loves Firefly/Serenity (tv series/movie by Joss Whedon), read on. Everyone else, ignore.

    Basically, Browncoats on teh interwebz are trying to buy Firefly from Fox and give it to Nathan Fillion so he may produce more awesomeness for us (aka new content!)

    This CNN article sums it up: This is a CNN article!
    This is the main site for the cause: Help nathan Buy Firefly!

    You can't stop the signal.

If they get the people needed (like, say, Joss Whedon) and the money assunder, then we might have the green light to take off.

    Oh wow that wouldn't be right. The people who are doing it this time have a three-phase plan.

    1.Generate awareness to get the attention of some serious folks, try to estimate how much we’d raise via a no-cash pledge system
    2.Get their buy-in to help make things happen
    3.Raise the funding for real, not just pledges

    At the moment they're halfway through phase one, which is all momentum and no mula involved. They say as much on the front page of their site (which I linked to in my first post about this).

    As far as the "right people" are involved, like Nathan Fillion and the like - they have nothing to do with this at the moment. Jose Molina (one of the writers), Jane Espenson (wrote an episode), and Jewel Staite (Kaylee), and all said they'd be back at the drop of a hat. That's all more eloquently said on the CNN article (which I also linked). They say it a lot sweeter than I do.
