We were wondering and wondering – Now we know…

21 Sep

To those guys who feel responsible for this wonderful explanation: Could you be please so cute and kind to make it for normal persons like all of us as clear and good as it gets why the British still manufacture and install their very special «two separated tab water system» instead of, well folks, you know where and how the real comfort is to be found, don’t you? Even having spent our time for a complete decade in the UK we still weren’t able to figure it out, right?

From “The Unknown Supergirl” to the “World’s Greatest Heroine” – in just one game

Should your dice has given you a 2 you lose instantly powers, have to drop back one field, but will then be adopted by a completely unknown couple, which resets your powers immediately, and that means you shall now move forward two fields where the following message awaits you: “Lesla-Lar, Supergirl’s Foe. Lose 1 Turn.” All that means that your dice seems to be a twisted person, not knowing the difference between a 2 and a 3 – of course.

Certainly, to become the World’s Greatest Heroine in just on game shall not to be seen as a piece of cake. Certainly not. Here is another evidence supporting that theory: Imagine that you’ve made it – somewhere, somehow – to field #7 where you instantly gain powers and are allowed to move 2 steps forward, will then be told that you’re immute to (green) kryptonite; a circumstance that gives you another 3 steps for free in addition, but – as a matter of fact – you will now be introduced to the destroyable attitude of The Infinite’s Monster’s unholy feet, which will let you drop back 2 steps. You end up with the message: “Linda becomes fat. Lose 1 turn.” By the way: Linda is you.

So, what does Linda learn from that? Regaining powers, being immute to kryptonite and being nearly smashed by some infinite monster’s feet makes you pretty fat. The exciting game is right: To cope with all that, you have to be the World’s Greatest Heroine – no doubt.

Ich weiß ja nicht was los ist, aber sommer- oder gar hitzebedingte Sauregurkenzeit scheint unter Bloggern nach wie vor nicht angesagt. Da setzt man sich selbst harten und selbstgefertigten Regel aus (Jeden Tag nur ein Beitrag, nur ein Beitrag, hörst Du?), und schon zwingt einen die aktuelle Sachlage, ein solch’ Reglement schlicht zu ignorieren.

Nerdcore erklärt, was es mit diesem Filmchen auf sich hat. Obwohl die Grundidee eine Adaption des berühmten sprechenden Schweins ist, das sich den Besuchern des Restaurants am Ende des Universums selbst als überaus schmackhaftes und noch zuzubereitendes Nahrungsmittel anpreist, ist dieser Spot, der den Stand von The Blood Factory auf der diesjährigen ComicCon bewerben soll, durchaus sehenswert.
