About Lithl

I am a computer scientist, interested in game development for over a decade, and I've made several connections within the industry. I've worked at Ninjaneering, Rice University, Pi Studios, and Sungura Games. I've also published my own apps on the Android Market, and developed a few small games while studying at Rice.

I'm a fan of many games, RPGs in particular. My friends sometimes tease me as I analyze a game from the perspective of a designer, rather than a player, but I enjoy it and I feel it helps me in my chosen field.

Triskaidekaphobia · 3:11am

tris·kai·dek·a·pho·bi·a

/triskīˌdekəˈfōbēə,ˌtriskə-/

noun

1. extreme superstition regarding the number thirteen.

2. an enchantment in Shadows Over Innistrad

This card has far too much flavor win to ignore, so I picked one up. Not sure if I'll run it in any deck, but I just had to have it and it's only $0.50. The full card text is:

Triskaidekaphobia {3}{B}

Enchantment (R)

At the beginning of your upkeep, choose one —

• Each player with exactly 13 life loses the game, then each player gains 1 life.

• Each player with exactly 13 life loses the game, then each player loses 1 life.

(William Murai)

Now check this:

1. 13 implements hanging from the wall

2. 13 boards on the ceiling

3. 13 boards on the walls

4. 13 drips of blood

5. 13 stones making the arch of the stove

6. 13 stones making the rest of the stove

7. 13 logs in the stove

8. 13 nails in the barrel

9. 13 pieces of the broken plate

10. 13 Ts in the card text

11. 13 words in each mode

12. 13 is the sum total of each digit in the card text: {3} + (1 + 3) + 1 + (1 + 3) + 1

13. 13 characters in the artist credit (counting the space)

The last one might be a stretch, but he's credited as "William" despite signing it "Will" on his website. It's also entirely possible I've missed one. :raritywink:

I have no idea what's in the forest outside that window (werewolves, probably), but I figure this guy dropped his plate, looked around, blood started seeping from the walls and he decided he'd try his luck elsewhere.

It's too bad they couldn't make the card collector #13/297 (it's #141), since the card order is strictly based on color and alphabetical sorting. #13 is pretty much guaranteed to be a white card in any set. (Descend Upon the Sinful, in the case of SOI)

The scandal began when the cheerleaders went into an adult novelties shop in uniform, took photos of themselves playing with the merchandise, and posted the photos on MySpace. (That particular chain of stores no longer permits cameras.)

The cheerleading coach wanted to punish them (basically removing them from the cheerleading lineup for some number of games), but the principal (the mother of the group's leader) prevented her from doing so. The coach resigned and took the story to the news media, which made the whole thing explode.

The school district hired a PI to look into the issue, and he found that the cheerleaders in question were frequently truant and dismissive of the authority of the teachers. He also found photos of them online with alcohol - even if they weren't drinking (but they probably were), minor in possession is still a crime.

The principal ended up getting laid off with a nice severance package, form what I hear. The vice principal tried to hold out for a better deal, and got fired with nothing. The whole kerfuffle ended up getting me two diplomas, since the interim principal signed diplomas for the seniors (not knowing when they'd find a permanent replacement), and the replacement principal came in before my senior year was out, so he signed a new set of diplomas. The school decided to give us both. :scootangel:

I took Algebra 2 with the leader of the group, and while she was pretty stereotypically a cheerleader, she was leagues away from running the class. Then again, my Algebra 2 teacher took no shits from nobody, and he managed to stick her with the nickname "Ugly Toes". He had nicknames for a number of kids in the class. The star of the girls' soccer team was in the class, too, and after she came back from spring break with a sunburnt nose she became "Rudolph". I'm sure he still has the drawing on his wall signed "Rudolph & Ugly Toes".

Hi. I was trying to reply on bronywriter's blog, but my phone was screwing up. What did the cheerleaders do?
