    I’m personally not a big fan of the concept of fashion trends at all - of any era. They lend themselves too easily to a world where we’re all expected to invest enormous amounts of time, money, and effort into looking the same as everyone else - and doing anything besides that just gets you ostracized. That said, when I think of fashion trends from the 80s I remember, one comes to mind right away: jeans jackets (or the general use of denim for clothing other than jeans/pants). Aesthetically I think it’s a fairly drab, boring style in general. However, there are definitely people who make it work - and it is those people that I most strongly associate with that style! I can think of crushes that I saw in person, both back in the 80s (when I was in kindergarten) and much more recently, that I remember looking *amazing* in jeans jackets...

    Race Results

    After the logic races, we did another round of Wiki Races, in which people look for a path to go from Point A to Point B using only Wikipedia links! The following people showed up for the races (and earn 5 XP each for doing so): Darkn3sss, GhostWalker, K3Ndragon, K8lin, Namnori, and Scarl3t! Also, 5 XP were awarded to the winner of each race (the five races are given below). Note that the starting Oasis was DIFFERENT from the starting Oasis in the last round of races! Race 1: Travel from Oasis to Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five (winner: Namnori) Race 2: Travel from Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five to Gohan (winner: Scarl3t) Race 3: Travel from Gohan to Lunchables (winner: Namnori) Race 4: Travel from Lunchables to Orange chicken (winner: K8lin) Race 5: Travel from Orange chicken to the San Francisco Giants (winner: Namnori) For winning at least TWO races, Namnori and Scarl3t have each been awarded a one-time warp! (Note that Scarl3t won two races total between the first two sets of Wiki Races). As before, this allows the user a chance to jump directly to any planet, provided that they have already unlocked the sector that the planet is in.

    I don’t think I have actually seen any reboots of movie franchises that “began in the eighties”. The closest would have to be Star Wars; while it technically began in the seventies, two-thirds of the original trilogy was released in the 1980s (1980 for The Empire Strikes Back; 1983 for Return of the Jedi). Star Wars was rebooted in 1999 with The Phantom Menace - the first of a new trilogy. I have seen two movies from that trilogy: The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones. Unfortunately, I felt that the reboot was really not worth my time (which is why I haven’t seen a Star Wars movie since 2002). While the original Star Wars trilogy was known for cutting-edge (for their time) graphics, technology has moved on since the eighties. Every choice that the directors made would have to either look like a period piece or a break from the original - and I’m not sure there was any real solution. Worse, the second trilogy felt like a star vehicle (no pun intended) for one of my least favorite actresses: Natalie Portman. Seeing that put me off even more - and made me feel like the franchise jumped the shark!

    SerpenTimes Ideas

    not sure if I'll be able to get it in by the 15th (though my final OWL is essentially done, I don't expect much more grading for my class, and things SHOULD go much smoother after I move on Sunday) - but... I'm thinking about writing a brief Quidditch retrospective titled "Why #99?" tied to my uniform number...

    I think I'm available essentially all of the 9th. (it's the day before moving but I should be able to block out an arbitrary period) For the 16th, it would have to be either early (5P-8P HOL) or late (after 1A HOL, at a minimum) due to other commitments I"m working around that day.

    Top House Points 2017-18

    Arguably everyone not listed would have tied for ninth, if I'm reading this properly... I'm just glad I didn't get zero like last month! HOPEFULLY June is a much better month for us for points as the class points we 'should' have earned in past months start showing up!

    I don't feel like mimicking terrestrial transport is right for me at all! I think a modified Imperial Star Destroyer, shown below, is better for me to use when traveling between worlds.

    That might be the single worst possible day for me, though if I must I could probably do something in the evening (preferably after 11:59 PM HOL)! (I’m moving between 4-10 PM HOL that day.)

    My favorite game to play among the arcade games was Tetris. But for that I'll specify the arcade game made by Tengen - not the NES version - as the arcade version and its stages were a lot more fun! Of course, arcade games became much more accessible in the late 90s when the Internet did its thing... but most of what you see there are clones that are somewhat different than what appeared in arcades. Another fun (but frustrating) game I remember playing as a kid was Marble Madness... the game that most strongly reminds me of driving without involving a car. The first stage in that one was reasonable enough, but once I passed that one I remembered the second stage having near-impossible curves, other marbles and monsters whose sole purpose was to knock you off the track... and if you maneuvered your way around one of them (luring it off a cliff, say) then a new monster of the same type would come out of nowhere to sabotage you in the exact same way! And worse, this incredibly hard stage - which I could never come close to beating as a kid - was called the "Beginner" stage by the game!

    Welcome to the OASIS!

    After we submit our actions for the day, I know we should expect our responses by email. Is there a specific email address and a specific time we should expect them from? (e.g. if we post our move during Day X, will our reply come later during Day X or at the very start of Day X+1... or some other time entirely?)

    Welcome to the OASIS!

    If you attack the monster in a world and fail to defeat it, is there any penalty to your character (lose XP/lose items/lose a turn)? Or is just having one move instead of two - with nothing to show for it - the penalty by itself?

    I read the book but haven't seen the movie yet (not really a movie fan in general, though I made an exception for the Bellatrix Lestrange scenes in the last four Harry Potter movies). I was... well... not a fan of it because it felt way too cliche (and almost like a self-insert of the author). But at least I liked Aech's character?

    Puzzle Exchange - Logic Puzzle

    HOL has acquired a physical campus for the study of various languages (one of which is Latin)! Five classes have already been scheduled. Each class meets at a different time of day (the earliest class meets at 7 AM and the latest class meets at 3 PM), in a different room (one of which is Room 322) and with a different number of students (one class has 25 students). Match each language class to the room number, the time it meets, and the class size! 1. Of the course in room 412 and the course with 22 students, one is the Troll language class and the other starts at 1 PM. 2. The Gobbledegook class, which does not meet at 9 AM, starts 2 hours before the class in room 122. The course in room 125 isn't the Gobbledegook class. 3. The class with 11 students starts 4 hours after the course with 14 students. The course in room 412 has 14 students. 4. The course with 11 students is either the Troll language class or the class in room 319. The Parseltongue class starts 4 hours before the Mermish class. 5. Of the course with 17 students and the 11 AM class, one is in room 412 and the other is the Parseltongue class. 10 scales (May 2018) Send me the solution via Dungeons PM with the subject line: Languages! SOLVED BY: Prof. Tarma Amelia Black 5 scales (May 2018) Prof. Scarlet Leslie-Lewis 5 scales (May 2018)
