    Yeah, "rash" is your only flaw. "Rash", as in, a whole rash of other flaws.

    Well, it's not as if the differences begin and end with language. Most anglophone countries are former British colonies and thus use a legal system based on the ones that descend from British tradition (and, of course, that includes the British colony known as the UK). Nearly all the countries in the world, mine included, use legal systems that descend directly from ancient roman law. The resulting differences can be stark. (fun fact: I dunno how much spread beyond the US this has exactly, but, there is no such a thing as a "plea" in my country, much less a "plea bargain".)

    Also, habeas corpus is a citizen's right to not be unlawfully imprisoned. Generally, you raise ruckus about that if you feel that you are being unlawfully imprisoned. Which is definitely not an unlikely thing around here, although it happens most often to people who wouldn't know what a habeas corpus is. (and that's not their fault, but feel free to take this as a jab directed towards yourself specifically anyway.)

    About as hard as it is to come up with a full table of negative traits without some of them sounding hilariously mild, I guess.

    Take a lucky guess as to which language is used in a course taught by public university in an officially Portuguese-speaking country. I mean, even if some of our Supreme Court judges are physically incapable of saying a full sentence that isn't at least half in German. (besides, in any legal doctrine that descends from ancient roman law, you'll be somewhat hard pressed to find obscure terms that aren't in latin. as a matter of fact, "fancy civil law term in latin" is practically a bis in idem.)

    I guess Eifie :), who is Eifie :('s good twin, will be dropping by my johari window, then?

    (wasn't it semi-clear that technical lingo isn't worth as many gloating points as regular vocabulary that happens to be obscure? I guess there wasn't enough stare decisis behind that thought, but.)

    I'm just glad Zhorken can hear it from someone who actually knows a thing or two about it firsthand, because I'm a pure, unspiteful being that definitely wasn't even refreshing the thread just to see if some people were going to edit in amusing reactions at being fricka frackin' ninja'd.

    (and really, if stumping me with maths is a thing you're shooting for, I have to inform you that others have done it more and better. most of them weren't even trying to stump me. in so far as they were math teachers and I was supposed to be learning from them.)

    also lol this probably means I should get around to doing the text part of the tournament reffing that I've had the math done with for a couple of days, so I can get around to procrastinating on you vs. Keldeo

    Hmm... common sense is that a Flung icicle would be Ice-type, but as far as I can tell no held item actually changes Fling's type, so I would lean toward ruling it as a Dark-type move regardless of what it's flinging.

    It would work for now, but the icicles will melt pretty soon, so it won't work for long. If a Fire-type move is used (especially one like Heat Wave), the icicles will melt pretty much immediately.

    p.s. uggggggh the cena battle is fighting-types only and I don't have any and off the top of my head I only really want a tyrogue or riolu but they're too expensive for me to buy
    p.p.s. the real killer is that I just realized I forgot to collect my asbank allowance for like, the past month, and I could afford one of those if I had collected it diligently

    except I'm already reffing roughly my limit of simultaneous battles. does the tournament battle count as one of the four I'm allowed to participate in at a time? if so, I'm outta luck

    The amount of times I proofread a given thing has nothing to do with the amount of stupid typos that will show up on that thing.

    ... Right, it doesn't. And that changes everything. (and well, sounds like that's one thing I need to go fix in the model structure now)
