"It might just be because superpowers activate under trauma-inducing conditions."

"Probably hard to say, yeah..."

"At any rate stuff I make while a member of the Wards using their budget is complicated but I'm planning to just make a trillion bucks and get out of the crimefighting angle as an adult."

Permalink

"Yeah, that sounds like it'd be good."

"Still have to figure out how to save the world but I'm a Tinker, I don't realistically think I'm going to squash an Endbringer with the skills I bring to disruption of gang violence."

Permalink

"Yeah. They're tough?"

Permalink

"I don't think this world's really made up of heavy hitters, unfortunately."

Permalink

"Yeah, if this world has a useful resource it's in the tinker dev boost and maybe Canticum if it works and keeps working out of world."

Permalink

"Yeah. Well, we could use the industry, even imported cross-worlds, if we get travel that isn't just one girl with a teleport..."

Permalink

"I think it's out of my scope but maybe I'd come up with something. I'd worry you'd get villains here though."

Permalink

"Yeah. We'd want it under our control pretty much... Blair - my sibling - recently started thinking maybe knacks could do interdimensional stuff if you got reckless enough about pushing on different kinds of vehicles, and we could bottleneck it by just limiting what we build and keeping vehicles under control. - Blair's the one who keeps getting drunk and pulling off stupidly amazing knacks, but only while drunk, which I feel puts a damper on their plan a bit there. Or at least a complication."

"Most themself when drunk?" Lorica speculates.

Permalink

"Possibly. Or Melly's right about craft beer getting a bit knacky."

Permalink

"Does other cooking do that?"

Permalink

"People sometimes claim it does? And home cooked meals do tend to be really good at being meals, but that's hard to systemically test nowadays? And, like, tell the difference between 'it's really good at being food' and 'it does some of the stuff music does' and 'people just enjoy cooking and there's a really strong placebo effect on taste.'"

Permalink

"Wonder if people here have lower rates of nutritional deficiency or anything."

Permalink

" - Huh, yeah, that'd probably be a good way to at least get a broad idea of whether something nutritional's going on..."

Permalink

"I can check my wiki device but that will only really help if you know your local rates."

Permalink

"I don't. Don't know what's being taken in way of statistics, either."

Permalink

"It's not anybody's first priority and that's pretty reasonable."

Permalink

"Yeah. Going to be a while before the government's that together again, I think."

Permalink

"Are you expecting it to reconstitute itself in its original shape?"

Permalink

"Nah. Too much's changed. But, like, I'm guessing there'll be similar - like, stability or prosperity markers? Stuff like 'surveys of nutrition to try to address malnutrition' is a - thing your government does once it's out of survival mode, feels like."
