Missing, but not forgotten. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency

Memorial Day is a time for remembrance. Many think of the ones who have died in combat, but a forgotten group is the Missing In Action. On this solemn day Americans should think about those who never came home, with their families left in limbo. Thankfully, there is one group whose sole purpose is to account for the ones who fought for this country, but never returned home. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency’s mission is to find many of the missing from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.


Mark Steyn, brilliant, moving and insightful, Memorial Day & Decoration Day remembered.

There is something not just ridiculous but unbecoming about a hyperpower 300 million strong whose elites - from the deranged former vice president down - want the outcome of a war, and the fate of a nation, to hinge on one freaky jailhouse; elites who are willing to pay any price, bear any burden, as long as it's pain-free, squeaky-clean and over in a week. The sheer silliness dishonors the memory of all those we're supposed to be remembering this Memorial Day.

Quotes of The Day


Quote I

The truth is more important than the facts. Frank Lloyd Wright

Wonder if he was ever asked by one of his 3 wives if the dress makes her ass look big?


Quote II

Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it. Mark Twain


Quote III

There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured with what is right in America. William J. Clinton


*****


Let the Bingo and Nun jokes begin. The Sisters of the Perpetually High.

In Merced County, California, you won't find much besides almond fields, a high crime rate and a bunch of nuns smoking weed.

The Sisters of the Valley is a company that sells cannabidiol (CBD) oils online. The company is run mostly by women out of two houses in California's Central Valley.

*****

So how is that Sharia Law working Down Under? Not so well, now that you asked.

The Australian Federal Police investigated 69 incidents of forced or under-age marriage in the 2015-16 financial year, up from 33 the previous year. While there are no official numbers, it is estimated that there are 83,000 women and girls in Australia who may have been subjected to female genital mutilation (FGM).

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, which has spent the past four years probing numerous religious organizations, has made no inquiries into Islam. The commission has held 6,500 one-on-one private interview sessions with survivors or witnesses making allegations of child sexual abuse within institutions, but only three sessions in relation to Islamic institutions

Meditation, The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

What contemporary and ancient meditators have always known, however, is that while the hype may be warranted, the practice is not all peace, love, and blissful glimpses of unreality. Sitting zazen, gazing at their third eye, a person can encounter extremely unpleasant emotions and physical or mental disturbances.

Do you enjoy spending time outside? Let's be careful out there. There is another tick borne illness out there.

The toddler survived with some scar tissue—but not everyone who gets Powassan, POW for short, is so lucky. With no treatment available, half of all people who contract the virus suffer permanent brain damage; 10 percent die. And while POW is nowhere near as prevalent as that other tick-borne summer scourge—Lyme—it is starting to show up more often.


Between the dogs and myself we have plenty of tick horror stories. We really don't need to have this.

Do you have too much spare time on your hands? Do you like playing with matches? You can make a matchstick house (without glue) and burn the sucker down.

Nostalgia: a feeling of pleasure and sometimes slight sadness at the same time as you think about things that happened in the past:
Hearing her voice again filled him with nostalgia. Cambridge Dictionary


Americans. Are we gripped with nostalgia?

Why are Americans gripped by nostalgia? Ross Douthat says it's a symptom of decadence. "Not the decadence of orgies and debauchery, but the decadence of drift, stagnation, and repetition." He quotes Jacques Barzun, who wrote that in periods of decadence "the forms of art as of life seem exhausted, the stages of development have been run through." Yuval Levin, on the other hand, ascribes our "blinding nostalgia" to the dizzying changes of the early twenty-first century. "In our economy, our culture, our politics, and throughout our society, longstanding norms seem to be breaking down." Writing in the neo-Marxist Jacobin, Samuel Earle points his finger at "global, neoliberal capitalism," which, "by subjecting everything in the world to the logic of the market," generates "enormous change in local communities with little to no regard for social cohesion." Douthat and Barzun suggest that there isn't enough novelty in the world. Levin and Earle, that there is too much.

Cancer. A dreaded disease. A new experimental treatment shows promise. Approval of a drug that, for the first time, capitalizes on a genetic feature in a tumor rather than on the disease’s location in the body.

he breakthrough, made official last week by the Food and Drug Administration, immediately could benefit some patients with certain kinds of advanced cancer that aren’t responding to chemotherapy. Each should be tested for that genetic signature, scientists stress.

“These are people facing death sentences,” said Hopkins geneticist Bert Vogelstein. “This treatment might keep some of them in remission for a long time.”

When do the pond scum bottom feeding ambulance chasers trial lawyers come after this treatment?

Now we have ROEs imposed on how we deal with threats, they are coming from inside the house, and are made worse because the EPA has placed buckets of poisonous centipedes, rattlesnakes and hobo spiders in our attics due to European global warming mandates.

Posted by: qdpsteve at May 29, 2017 04:36 PM (eMKNe)

51 Why are Americans gripped by nostalgia? I don't know about "gripped" but this society has an inordinate interest in nostalgia probably because it has more access to it than any other society did. Photos are, essentially, free these days (versus the old cameras, film developing, storage, etc.), videos are everywhere, recordings of the past are available on demand. In the past you could only be so interested in nostalgia ... and then the feeling would easily pass because you had nothing more than a few photo albums to page through. That wide access to nostalgia leads to the popular culture catering to it and profiting off of it. I think it's just that simple. The past is more available and is more of an ongoing rival for the contemporary.

76 To all that have served, the Circa household and I thank you. I played a small part. My dad, the late Master Chief (HCMC), did two tours with the Marines in Vietnam and sent me some very cool pictures as the Enterprise's Task Force 1 faced down the Soviets in the Bay of Bengal during the India-Pakistan War in 1971. To those that paid the ultimate price, I have no words. The English language is insufficient. Somewhere along the line, it became OK for the left to roll their eyes at Memorial Day. Word to the wise: Don't to that around me. I quit being even remotely nice and tolerant around 9:00 a.m. EDT, September 11, 2001.

113 That wide access to nostalgia leads to the popular culture catering to it and profiting off of it. I think it's just that simple. The past is more available and is more of an ongoing rival for the contemporary. Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair at May 29, 2017 09:36 PM (zc3Db) --- Was discussing popular culture yesterday evening. I feel we're at the end of one era and the next big cultural leap hasn't occurred yet, so we're in an ever-tightening circle of self-reference with no forward momentum. Plus, the pop culture of every era is now accessible with no real historical framework. Culture isn't linear anymore, it's spherical, and the sphere is collapsing in on itself. Yeah, we may have been drinking when we were debating this.

On the other hand, Tickled Pink, wear something you are comfortable in, that you can actually swim in, and in a color that sets off your hair and skin.
Few things to a man are more attractive than a woman who is comfortable and having fun. 

(except for drunks who don't understand the word "no" and horny teenagers of all ages)

Butt floss and pasties are wonderful, but they attract the wrong sort of attention.

174 125, well keep drinking what you were drinking last night because what you are saying makes a lot of sense.

The Beatles' Sgt.. Pepper was released 50 years ago this week and it's still being treated like the cultural  touchstone that it was in 1967, In 1967, was popular culture celebrating  music  from 50 years before? From 1917?  No popular culture was moving too fast at the time. Today. it's not, so  we keep remaking the same movies while Classic Rock radio plays 40 year old songs over and over.

I went to great lengths to explain kindly what I was suggesting. you may need to go back and review the transcript. words have meaning. Posted by: yankeefifth at May 29, 2017 10:04 PM (cPsPa) You don't have to point that out to every fucking poster you disagree with about "words." "Great lengths."

It doesn't have to be anything fancy. Guys really don't care about "styles" of bikinis. To a guy's eyes, there really is no such thing. There are just bikinis and skin. What is best is what exposes the most of the attractive parts of your figure (within taste, of course, which is your decision only - as guys don't really care about that). That's really how it is. Most swimsuit fashion is wasted. Guys don't much care, as long as it's kind of skimpy.

No, there was a breeding program instituted on a few islands in the 50's but it set aside during the Cuban Missile Crisis, and never re-mounted properly.  The population is still small but is considered to be genetically varied enough that they are thinking of re-introducing it off some of the Gulf coast islands if they get permission from the National Park Service.

I only hope they won't have trouble since, with no surviving natural predators, the population may get out of hand.

260 212--there was a brief nostalgia for the '20's in the '60's   but it was brief and the '70's had flings with the '30's and especially the '50's.  But still, the popular culture moved along. Now it's all folded back upon itself, the decades cascade and and crash like waves along the beach.  And the neo-Marxists who blame "global capitalism" DO have a point in that local communities can't absorb the shock of the fast pace changes. And this at the same time that families have broken up and young couples aren't having children. The framework that has underpinned civilizations  are eroding.....

pick a suit style and color that suits your body style and complexion...

wear it with confidence and pride.

be civil to whomever might actually strike up a conversation, and don't project an air of "leave me alone"...

shy idiots like me will likely just look and dream, but someone should take the bait.

Then came the bigger question of why people who try to do the right things get ass-raped for their efforts, and the people who do the rotten shit get everything they want at others' expense.

345 Tammy, yup. Cali, you got guts :-) Insomniac, same here too. I was recently triggered reading one of those "Evil HR Lady" columns about harassment in the office, and "what to do about it." It triggers me, especially when I read "if you do this they HAVE to act on your complaint," because it's all bullshit. If your bosses like you, your harassers get punished; if your bosses DON'T like you, they do nothing, basically start looking for a half-assed reason to fire you and start harassing you themselves. There is NOTHING that someone who isn't rich, powerful and popular in the office can do about getting harassed, especially if you're an overweight straight white male like I am. THEY WILL DO NOTHING AND BLAME YOU FOR YOUR OWN HARASSMENT. I have NEVER had a boss stand up for me. Never, never, never. And to this day it pisses me off to no end.

  Good evening, good people.

 Day of memories, some sad, some happy. But an absolute resurgence of optimism everywhere I went.

  We were left a remarkable legacy that despite what you may read is strong as ever.

 If you watched the video, it should be evident why I exhort you to "hold that head HIGH".

  We are an extraordinary people living in the most exceptional country on the planet.

 Always remember that.

365 I realize this is likely completely off topic. Well actually, no, I don't realize this is off topic because I've been drinking gin. Oddly enough it doesn't loosen my underwear. Anyhow I have a friend who's an arborist. He tells me all the spruce trees in western Canada are dying from a particular fungal disease. The worst part is not that spruce trees are dying. The worst part is that they become tinder dry and it would take nothing more than a spark to make them explode into flame. According to him it wouldn't take much at all to cause a fire storm similar to Fort MacMurray. In the beginning spruce needles go from glossy blue green to dull green. In end stages they go pink. What do you think? FWIW he's a good old conservative boy.

377 Heh. Watching 'Operation Pacific'. In the movies , our torpedoes always fire. Reality was that the dud rate of those was HUGE. Something like 45% early in the war. "The USN had a torpedo problem from the beginning of the war through mid-1943. For a year and a half, sailors put their lives on the line to make torpedo attacks with faulty equipment. The Asiatic submarines made 136 attacks, firing 300 torpedoes in the first four months sinking only ten ships."

398 I have been watching the original Twin Peaks series. For: Kind of a prototypical police procedural. You can see the pieces there certainly. Good acting and direction. Sultry brunettes... who are all supposed to be in high school, so maybe that should go in the... Against: Melodrama (which I think is kind of the point, sending up shows like Dallas and Knots Landing and so forth.) Posted by: Aetius451AD at May 29, 2017 10:28 PM Everything about the original TP is great. I've just seen the first 4 episodes of the new version and it's not really working for me. The "melodrama/soap" aspect of the original kept the story moving forward and served to establish characters, motivations and whatnot. This would be mixed with bouts of the surreal. It was pretty much always *weird*, but you knew who was who, what was going on and why. The new series is much more Lynch post-Twin Peaks style.

407 Regarding the dying trees, a similar thing happened in the California mountains a few years ago. Trees were weakened due to drought and fell prey to a beetle infestation, if I recall correctly. We wound up with serious fires, particularly in the Yosemite area. If possible, thinning those trees would probably be a good idea.

However, the tenor of the show has also changed from he first season. It is not bad, per se, but I can see why people started to change the channel. Much darker, more serious and aside from Cooper, everyone seems to be flawed in a major way. Oh and Pete.

The reason we're nostalgic is our past was filled with much beauty, and the character of our nation was based on virtue instead of vice. we have *almost* lost the thought that made us the greatest nation on earth but we played our Trump card, and we're back in the game.

464 Insomniac, since everyone else is psychoanalyzing you, I will too.

I suspect it is not about your ex, who you admit you don't want back, but this is instead about what the breakdown of the relationship and the marriage implies about you.

My advice is that if you sit around trying to justify how it couldn't work, or focus on  how it was your fault, you will wind up spending all your brain-space on that instead of, say, thinking "what next?"

You get can get stuck on failure, just like it is possible to get stuck on stupid. 

And remember that the only thing you can do about the past is to learn from it or lie about it. 
You need to learn to ask yourself which you are doing when you start beating up on yourself or justifying what happened. 

it is not where you come from and what has happened to you that is important, it is what are you going to do next.

And that is all I am ever going to say about this subject to you.  I promise.

I think it's because a good sports movie will engage the audience with the personalities, flaws, and aspirations of the characters, so the development of the narrative interests us, even if we know how it turns out. OTOH, in sports, we generally don't really know much about the protagonists on a personal level, so the only aspect of interest is the outcome.

My main point was just that you need to retrain your mind to start thinking of something else when it goes to the angry place. The minute you start thinking about your ex, or the situation in general or whatever, you have got to just say STOP. I do not want this anger/sorrow,rage in my life anymore. Then look back and remember a time, even just an instant, when you were happy, and think about that, relive every detail. You need to do that to give yourself just a teeny second of relief from your misery.

What makes it ominous is that many state and federal lands don't allow the sort of salvage logging and proscribed burning that would both save the wood and clear the fuels from the forests and prevent drastic fires.

But, the greenies have deep pockets for lawfare, made deeper by the fact that the feds agree with them, and they don't have to deal with the financial loss these lawsuits closing the forests from cutting cause from closing mills and from the catastrophic fires.

511 "A good manager hire does not need to know the specific process. But then the good ones will learn as much as they can as quick as they can. How else will they know who is doing a good job, and who is bullshitting them?"

I've never had a manager that really knew what I do. They do get an insight in how well I do my job from the customers in the company that I produce results for. A good manager can read if customers in the company are happy and reward/punish appropriately.

I don't think the stern was even out of the water at all when the breakup happened. One of the last wireless messages said that the engine room was flooding. That would have been impossible if the stern was out of the water. The survivors clearly recalled seeing the stern standing high in the air, but that happened after the breakup.

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at May 29, 2017 11:11 PM (9m4zl) Famiglia Guevara visited Sequoia National Forest a couple years ago, where I was surprised that the Forest Service admitted that for decades they'd been seriously off-base in trying to fight every forest fire, little realizing that forest fires are part of the life cycle of the sequoias. They require fires to burn out the underbrush, weeds, and leaves so the sequoia seeds can get down to the soil. So nowadays the Forest Service lets fires burn, up to a point.

At that point he'd be qualified to be a junior member of one of my (numerous) subordinates.

There was a major FUBAR with a new product launch, that was, IMHO, partly caused by some really bad management decisions. But as the company Technical Director, I was blamed. It was an ugly meeting. Myself and one of my subordinates really felt ambushed. I was about to kill our Sales Manager (who is a two-faced conniving shit). But that was two years ago. Memories are long. This and a couple other things caused me to get my ass kicked. Lucky, frankly, to still have a job and being well paid. Somebody else has my old job now, and the main thing he does is write reports. And fart around traveling with Salesmen doing Technical support, about some things he hasn't a clue about.

He loves to watch the classic college football games, especially any with Alabama and LSU in them. Of course, he's 92 and he doesn't remember how any of them turned out any more, so they're all new to him. But he kinda sorta remembers he liked them the first time, so it's all good.

It seems that once he had to stop screwing around he just lost it. That banging everything in sight seemed to be important to his mental state and once that was exposed and he had to really tone it down everything else fell apart. He still ended up with a pretty great record. He was clearly, at his prime, the best golfer ever and over his career he was mixed in with the top three (hard to really say that any one of them was "better" than the others, overall). If he could have kept himself from nailing the neighbor's daughter he might have lasted a few more years and put distance between himself and everyone else in the career records.

648 It is the swing, also how much these guys are putting into it. A buddy of mine (who was a damn good golfer) pointed out that John Daley was able to put such a hurting on the ball because he twisted himself up into a pretzel swinging. He thought Tiger should have more longevity because he used a different swing that was not quite as gymnastic. Guess he was wrong. Posted by: Aetius451AD at May 29, 2017 11:44 PM (ycWCI) How is that different from baseball? OK, golf players wind up to hit off the tee, and sometimes in the fairway. Baseball position players probably make about as many ballistic swings per day as golf players, play many more days, AND play in the field, AND run the bases. Bottom line: golf players are faggots.

653 A good, strong golf swing is a very serious power move. Most people can't do it so, for them, golf is just a fun hobby.

654 639 British succession traditionally is a combination of being related to the royal family and ultimately being acceptable to the house of lords. ------- The one requirement is direct descent from William the Conqueror. And amazingly, despite depositions, abdications, civil war and dynastic successions, every monarch right down to Elizabeth II is in the direct line. One thousand years of continuity.

656 Britain: Used to be "male preference primogeniture" but they changed it to absolute primogeniture right before Kate spit out the first baby. This would mean that if her first born was a girl, it would be the heir. And it makes the girl, Charlotte, right behind the boy.

  But it wasn't retroactive, only for new births.

 A lot of the Euro countries changed that, and Britain followed suit.

657 Speaking of Tiger - yesterday I watched a documentary, "The Short Game", on Netflix or hulu about kids getting ready for the world golf championships. Some of the kids seemed to genuinely enjoy playing golf but some of them seemed to be doing it because their parents started them on that course when they were toddlers. The movie focused on 7 and 8-year-olds. One little girl had the skills but not the emotional maturity to deal with her mistakes. And her father made it very clear that golf would be her ticket to a good college. The movie was entertaining, but I wonder what's going to happen to these kids as they get older. How many of them are really going to be the next Tiger Woods? And if they do become the next Tiger Woods, is that a good thing?

666 How is that different from baseball? OK, golf players wind up to hit off the tee, and sometimes in the fairway. Baseball position players probably make about as many ballistic swings per day as golf players, play many more days, AND play in the field, AND run the bases. Bottom line: golf players are faggots. Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at May 29, 2017 11:49 PM (SRKgf) Ok, think about this. When you are swinging a bat, you are pretty much twisting in the way that God intended- in a plane that is even with your shoulders (give or take.) A golfer is swinging in a plane that is MUCH steeper. So you are not just putting lateral motion on the spine, but also adding another dimension of twisting. Most brand new golfers will, as my buddy put it, try to baseball the club. It is not really the same motion. Baseball is a much more natural use of the body. The golf swing is not a natural movement in any way shape or form.

675 The reverse C a la Johnny Miller can't be easy on your back. Everyone imitated him. Posted by: CaliGirl at May 29, 2017 11:51 PM (Ri/rl) Don't know much about that. I never took lessons or studied. But any powerful swing is going to do some serious damage over time. I'm a bit of a long-drive person, myself, and I have had to become very conscientious about stretching (really painful, long stretching) before I hit. I have found, through past pain and injuries, exactly what I need to do to keep myself healthy, but even with that I won't hit balls more than two or three times a week, these days. But I really love smashing golf balls. One of the funnest things you can do standing up.

I also played (and play) baseball. What does a golf club weigh? Practically nothing; it's pretty much like a broom handle, or a wiffle bat. How hard is it to catch up with a dead red golf ball? It's just sitting there, waiting to be hit. Now how much does a baseball bat weigh? How hard is it to catch up with a dead red fastball? Hitting a golf ball is child's play. Pitchers do that routinely on their off days, just for shit and grins.

724 Self driving cars are going to ruin the tension in all kinds of movies. No one will be able to accidentally step in front of a taxi any more. No bad guy will be able to be thrown under a bus. It's going to be a cinematic nightmare! In just the last couple of hours I have seen 3 scenes where people were struggling with one another and one of them got clipped by a vehicle. I can't figure how else they were going to move the plot along if that hadn't happened. Maybe getting struck by lightning out of a clear blue sky, or a meteor through the top of their heads, but that simply isn't as satisfying as the blurred image of a yellow cab tossing someone like a ragdoll. Ban self driving cars, do it for Hollywood!

726 Had a good evening with my angel and her clan. Did a stir fry of onions, broccoli, bok choy, eggplant, squash, and tomatoes for their dinner tonight. The Colonel presided over the grill, as per usual, doing great justice to the shashlik I'd brought. Drinks and a cigar after, and once more, he called me 'son.'

I love drinking good beer, going to concerts, beer festivals, and fun things around the area. I'm adventurous in bed, own a sex swing, and I'm a switch but I tend to sub 5'2", 118lbs, super cute & a little shy at 1st.Message me and we can meet I'm hsv1 & hsv2 positive.

I'll not be argumentative about it, because that's what got them banned in the first place. It is merely a plea on behalf of Good People to get them un-banned from this website. If it falls upon deaf ears, so be it. I'll argue upon the COBs' behalf on why they should have been Banned in the first place. I'll defend, until the end the reasons why they were Banned. --They asked for it. I am merely pleading to the COBs on their behalf. I beg of you to allow them back. I'm a "Baseball Guy". I understand the "Three-Strikes-and-You're-Out" philosophy. They were "warned", "chided" and ultimately "Banned". I certainly understand that. I'm pleading on behalf of my Friends. These are people who Welcomed me to this place and my affinity for them cannot be denied. This is not a threat of empty disclosure. I'll be around for the next few years, if you'll have me. This is a plea to the graciousness of our beloved COBs. I thank you all for reading my diatribe and I'll take the slings and arrows that come with it. I truly Understand that this is your decision.

812 Posted by: RickZ at May 30, 2017 06:08 AM (JCMrJ) I have a history of egging Slap about his Grammar Pedantry. This was not one of those times or I would not have corrected myself. I was just being igornant that time. Didn't want Slap to think I was being disrespectful.

813 Thank You, Brother. I'm just a guy with a keyboard, so I just type things that I believe.

814 You weren't even close to being "disrespectful". Beside? I've come to let most of that Pedantry go, Amigo.

Posted by: Slapweasel, (Cold1) (T) at May 30, 2017 06:15 AM (6gk0M) But the pedantry of the comma is most important, especially in the wording of something like the 2nd Amendment. And I think I remember (yeah, I suffer from Can't Remember Shit Syndrome) reading about a lawsuit that was lost due to a forgotten comma. Comma Pedantry not only keeps lawyers in a job but is also fuel for Horde comments. Never underestimate the power of Comma Pedantry.

816 My parents "made-fun" of me when I was a kid. I had a speech impediment that had me pronouncing "these" as "deez". They "pay the price", nowadays... lol. There is no such word as "heighth". It is "height". It ends in a "T" for a reason. My parents will "pay" until the day they leave this Great Creation.

821 There are Dictionaries and Grammar Manuals. What there is not is a centralized authority that can make a final determination on language usage. I am of the mind that if you understand what is meant by the spelling and grammar, it is valid. If you want to spell the "skate" "sk8" that is fine by me. No skin and all that. Besides, who can say anything about that usage with any official authority? Legalese, I will leave the Legalese in Legalnam. Which I understand is under total occupation by the Peruvian Empire after total defeat in the 2nd Great Semi-colon War.

Posted by: Slapweasel, (Cold1) (T) at May 30, 2017 06:26 AM (6gk0M) Yeah, they seem to ignore that complete sentence after the comma: '. . . , the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed'. I blame such stupidity on not only the lack of Civics being taught in schools, but also on English language teachers as well.

825 DENVER POST Fires Writer 'Uncomfortable' With Japanese Indy 500 Winner... Best part of this is, the writer is a Prog. He tried desperately to virtue-signal his way out of this, but BadThink is Badthink and he had to be unpersoned. I love left on left violence.

I hope that former Denver Post writer doesn't find out a German won the Senior PGA Championship at Trump National here in N. Virginia. He'll hurt his hand clutching those pearls.

It had split during the Slash Wars of 3/4 to 5/17. There would be no Great Leader until Thesaurus conquered Peruvia in 1932.

834 Heh. Late to the party, as usual. I'll just drop this here and go find another comments thread. The Sisters of the Perpetually High triggered a memory. The first massive multiplayer game (MMORPG) I played was City of Heroes. Mostly so I could chat with my brother who was across the country. During the character creation, you had some space to describe how your character got their superpowers. Now, my brother and I are incorrigible punsters. Seriously, do not incorrige us. My contribution to the genre was a nun from a convent on top of a mountain, high above the clouds. Her name was "Nun of the Above" and I got a LOT of groans from fellow players. Seeing that article about the nuns higher than a kite... maybe I should have re-written her backstory. (FYI - My other character was a communist dwarf named "Gnome Chomsky". My brother had an Arabic scrapper who gained his powers from being hit by a radioactive ice cream truck, named "Milk Sheikh")
