  1. There have been various ‘correction’ bots for a very long time. They tend to disappear eventually.

  2. Misspell? How horribly prescriptivist!

  3. It's not really ambiguous; the classical translation may have changed the literal meaning of the word in an effort to make it more understandable to speakers of English (which of course requires that the translator themselves have a good understanding of what was intended to be conveyed, which is not the case here given that an ongoing debate exists), but what Homer wrote (οἶνοψ πόντος, oînops póntos) would be literally translated as "wine-eyed sea" or "wine-faced sea" - οἶνος meaning wine and ὄψ usually meaning eye but sometimes arguably used for the whole face.

  4. That's indeed a factoid and not a fact:

  5. I just finished a delightful crackfic one-shot featuring Crookshanks and Mrs. Norris called "Not Neutered, Should've Spayed: A Purr-fect Couple" on AO3 by Zorak23.

  6. Since just searching the name doesn't work (at least for me):

  7. The USS Arkansas carried 9 quad-mounts of 40mm Bofors and 29 Oerlikon 20mm AA cannons alongside 10 M2 50 cals set up in AA configuration after its 1942 refit. You've got to wonder exactly how many dragons were turned into sushi bait attacking that one target alone, especially since the Arkansas also carried 12 12 inch and 6 5 inch guns that could fire flak rounds in a pinch.

  8. From the prompt I think dragons are charmed so the muggles don't see them. Sure, with enough flak they can still be hit...

  9. You’re right every time I do a poetry install I spend 9 months reading every line of code from the 20 packages I import to make sure it’s legit!

  10. Sorry, Reddit normally finds duplicates before posting but this time it failed. I honestly even checked

  11. That's the entirety of that particular snippet, but

  12. I remember reading a story with this exact premise, but failed to find it or remember pretty much anything :( except

  13. There's gotta be someone weaker in worm that could handle it. Imp would be a good bet, though electronic surveillance is a bit of a weakness if hers. I'm drawing a blank on other capes with stranger powers though

  14. Nice Guy was my first thought. Electronic surveillance isn't a problem, but traps are.

  15. Curious about your last paragraph. Definitely a fearsome sight. What other evil creatures were put in the void?

  16. Not put into it, but we know Ungoliant came from there and there's no reason to think she's the only one.

  17. Have you recalculated Arwen with the new half-life, though?

  18. I misread it. I thought it was about him realizing he's a character in a story for kids and obviously an antagonist :)

  19. Wow. Of course if this was the case, how long before Contessa just yanks a wizards points at scion and goes

  20. I was thinking about it some more (went on vacation and hate using Reddit on my phone). I stand by her not trying this, but two things which probably do happen:

  21. More than that, she won't try it unless it's guaranteed to work. PtV doesn't just give you the odds like Dinah, it tells you the exact steps to take to achieve the outcome you want.

  22. But she couldn't rely on PtV for this, Scion is a blind spot.

  23. I still don’t understand why that would make eidolon give up. Needing worthy opponents is bad? Huh?

  24. No, but being responsible for the Endbringers is bad.
