  1. theory

    This is a lot of thread and it's way too late for me to read all the arguments and counterarguments, but it seems to me that if Adhesion's Full Lashing is indeed just a temporary re-writing of Spiritwebs so that Object A thinks that Object B is part of Object A... the applications of this could be substantial, yes? Could an Allomancer burn metal that's Adhesion'd to their person? Could, in a more contemporary time, fully-controllable prosthetics be made that run on Stormlight and a couple Full Lashings? Could it somehow be applied to unlock Spiritweb-specific invested tools? (I.E., Shardblades, Metalminds, Breaths) These are fun thoughts.
  2. My flesh healed around the pebble so now I just have a funny crater in my back. Well, I did... before they filled it in with skin.

  3. You know yesterday I had to go into surgery to cut out an infected hair follicle that went septic. They had to graft in a ton of skin to cover up the hole--turns out the source of the infection was a piece of gravel that I got wedged in there from a bicycle accident twelve years ago.

  4. You've got a cool middle name Mr. Services. Really long too. One of my cousins goes by his middle name, which is kind of unfortunate because his middle name is "Nobody". He gets in a lot of fights. 

  5. Did you ever get bullied because of your funny name, Mr. Services? I got bullied for being named after a comic supervillain allllll the time. One time a kid wombo-combo'd me right into a trash can so hard my face got wedged in the dented metal.

    They had to call the fire department to cut the metal away from my neck. Ever since then I've possessed a series of criss-crossing scars that make my neck look like bunch of potato chips stacked on top of each other.

    Wanna see?

  6. What's the weather like in Delhi? I heard it's a reeeeeeeeaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllly big city. Is it humid? I don't like very humid places, but that's just because I have some unfortunate genetics from my uncle who sweats so profusely it often curdles before the end of the day.

     

    Wanna see?

  7. Mr. Services, why did your parents name you "Web"? Were you born with a rare birth defect that leaves you with webbed feet like a duck? I have that too! Wanna see?

  8. Do you like ice cream? I love ice cream. Vanilla's my favorite, which may seem boring, but it pairs well with basically every topping ever so I like it.

  9. Hello Mr. Services. My, what a coincidentally professional name you have there.

  10. Correct, this game is a meme-complex that infiltrated our noosphere in the year of 1992 and has plagued us ever since. It's memetic properties mean that as soon as you perceive its existence, it is permanently bonded to you as its host. It does not matter whether you believe. It does not matter what you choose. It does not matter who you are, or what you do, or why you scream for the Game to release you. It has you, and it will never let you go. You, like everyone else, chose to venture into this universe, to learn and gain knowledge and open your senses. Sometimes you learn things you wish you didn't. Sometimes you regret your senses. Sometimes it does not matter. Sometimes, it just is. @therunner
  11. This of course was a capital offense in the land of Berries and Cream, so they were all ceremoniously crammed into 2012 Chevy Silverado (which was colored gold), and were driven--
  12. All got into a 2008 Chevy Corvette Convertible and travelled to the land of Berries and Cream.
  13. Also note the scene in Bands of Mourning where Marasi and Wayne visit the graveyard. Marasi reflects on Survivorist theology that Kelsier will one day "return in his glory" (I see you ripping off both our religions, Brandon. Don't think I don't ), specifically when the world is in great danger or need. The Southerners have the same belief. This doesn't fit HoA lore specifically, but does thematically. Could it be Kell (or rather, his followers) just co-opting an already existing theological trope? Maybe. Probably. It doesn't rule out the prophecy actually applying. I think it could be a very interesting plot point in Era 4, but I don't think it will occur in Era 3. Saze is a Hero of Ages, and 300 years doesn't quite cut it imo. I want to see a bit more of him. All in all, I like this theory, have some rep. Edit: Also, welcome to the Shard, my friend! If the chasmcrawlers don't get ya, the cookies will! By the way, most excellent tattoo (you can't see it but I'm giving a thumbs-up)
  14. *points* that's the one This Cali boy is headin to Texas (I know Texas has a thing about that but I promise I come in peace) Consider: What would be the institutional response to an irl Mistborn or Radiant? Scientific curiosity? Sensational fearmongering? A declaration of war? A new religion started? All of the above? Imagine how awkward it would be for Brandon...
  15. Smh I'm taking an extended hiatus so I'll miss S v R III: Revenge of the Medallions Oh well, I'm sure I can pop in during S v R V: Scadrial Strikes Back (MB Era 3), or at the latest during S v R VI: Return of the Radiants (Stormlight 6) Edit: to get back on topic, I think IRL Radiancy would be *extremely* revolutionary for our tech, as we'd find continuous ways to repurpose surges for machines, one day automating everything with fabrials. Having Mistborn and Mistings would be really complementary for our existing tech imo, enhancing what humans can do next to machines and if automation comes down the line, it'd integrate well with our current engineering prowess. Either way, people with powers would be in *really* good financial positions, no matter their "skill set".
