  1. Ok so I got this CRAZY invention in mind. It's like walls, but you can walk through them. Like, they open. And then you can unopen it, so it's like a normal wall now? The only people who can answer that are either long dead or not born yet
  2. With all this fancy schmancy magic stuff happening, would Cosmere planets make faster strides in technology than us, or would they be slower than we were? I'm just talking about plain, old fashioned Earth stuff, without all that Invested jazz. No Awakened computers, no fabrials, just normal electricity and stuff. For Scadrial, for example, normal people could either want to be like coinshots, and develop planes and spaceships faster to catch up with them, and use allomantic conveniences to help their research, or they could just rely on coinshots and take longer to research planes. Or Komashi, would they be perfectly content with Hion, and never even dream of traditional electricity, or would they grow tired of their 2 color screens and develop technicolor TVs overnight? This is just a silly thought, and could apply to any planet or civilization you want.
  3. Granted. You will always have an even number of Ford Transits in a 500 foot radius. I wish for pants that actually fit
  4. Hey, it looks like your mouth is sewn shut. Are you ok? I'll have to get back to you on that. Probably with a lawyer.
  5. Granted. Since I can't really calculate the weight of glass, the swan has 29.6 grams of lead in it. Which isn't really that heavy, so instead some guy steals it from you. I wish for more money, delivered to me in a manner that won't harm or inconvenience me.
  6. I fire a shell of ketchup liquid at the sand castle. The castle collapses from the moisture, and I take the sandwich after the dust clears.
  7. But Gizmo was actually me in a disguise (somehow)! The real Gizmo is over there eating. I turn in the opposite direction from you with the sandwich.
  8. Granted. You will never be considered cool by anyone, ever again. I wish to be able to function without sleep
  9. Your overtly lengthy sentence causes the pilot to crumble to dust. The airplane falls out of the sky, and I position myself at the crash spot to catch the sandwich.
  10. Granted. A dog (not yours) eats it. I wish for someone else to write my essay.
  11. I guess the only thing you can apply abrasion to while falling would be air, but I don't think it would actually slow your fall? Same way a mirror-polished cannonball wouldn't be faster than a normal cannonball. That's more air resistance stuff, so unless you could become a shape that restricts airflow, you'd just be falling normally. unless the magic system is magic.
  12. I feel like I haven't seen you in ages, tho you've definitely posted recently. How's it going? Also, your pfp is a masterpiece of art. Puts Mona Lisa to shame.

      yo :] I don't post/reply that much anymore, but I still frequent the site a lot. Still reading like the nerd I am! Also thanks, I love putting my energy into things that will not get me a job

  13. First page of the Postscript, page 383, paragraph 1, sentence 4. "The experience was so much fun that I wanteßd to try something again..." "Latin small letter sharp s" (eszett) is used instead of an apostrophe. I'm not sure if this is a printing error exclusive to this specific copy, or if it's included in other books. I left the little publishing info page, in case anyone wanted to check. This is a library copy. Photos:
  14. A battery world is definitely possible, but I'm not convinced how Canticle can be one. How does the planet store this energy? The core is probably invested, cuz the planet is way to small for normal physics to apply. The sunlight is invested to some amount, or even the air, but I can't find any evidence that the ground absorbs the investiture and keeps it. The air is resistant to the sun's investiture, so a lot of investiture is lost as heat, doing the whole melty thing. It probably doesn't leave a lot of investiture to reach the ground, and make it to the core. Also, why would a shard, a being made of investiture, need a store of it? I guess it could make sense if the energy was meant for something/someone else, or maybe a backup plan or something? The battery planets would be really long term investments, since it probably takes a lot of investiture to make them, and it would take a while to break even.
  15. I point out the glaring grammatical error in your last sentence! There's no comma after "stops", implying that the car stopped flinging the sandwich into your hands. The sandwich is still in the car. Plot twist, I was the driver all along, and I speed away.
