  • Help with synergy on sandstorm pokemon team?

    This is less about the moves on these pokemon and to see if the team works together well. I think it can but am not sure. Since this is a really wrong draft at this point any suggestions are welcome. Don't worry about moves here just the pokemon.


    Decent lead set up sandstorm too.


    Great revenge killer and sweeper with sandstream and wreck teams.


    Better then magnezone at killing steels now with evolution stone. Exadrill has problems with steels like skarmory and this kills them.


    Good physical wall. Also much of the team is weak to earthquake and skarmory is immune.


    Takes any and all water hits which can be a problem with this team. Also works as a rapid spin blocker and to take fighting hits.


    Kind of split on this. Ironically I have problems with electric attacks with both of my main defensive pokemon being weak to them. These work as special walls also with sandstorm up. I have considered other options too like hippowdon and Terrakion.

  • What is this variation of chess called?

    On my chess team we commonly play a chess called "atomic chess" by us but after searching "atomic chess" up on google I found it has much different rules. I am sure wikipedia has it somewhere in there database its just I don't feel like spending 3 hours going through the chess variations page.

    The rules are in general similar to regular chess but with one big exception: whenever a piece takes another piece it explodes on contact destroying itself and that piece. Not only that but in the blast radius of one adjacent square around it everything is destroyed. This includes the king so the king can be killed in this game (resulting in them losing.) So a common checkmate against n00bs is 1. e4 d4 2. exd4 Qxd2#. Also the rules of check aren't as strict since the king can be taken and its possible to take the king out it ever being in check (due to the blast radius.) So this results in no games drawn by the king being unable to move since it can but it will be taken. But it does allow the King to move right next to another king resulting in a draw since no where the opposing king moves is safe from the king one step behind it and if it take it just explodes itself. Also if you are in "check" you can just do a move that will take the other player's King since you killed it first and then just won.

    Please can anyone help me pin this down. I saw some pretty wild chess variations on wikipedia this has to be on there.

  • How do you take the front off of a windows XP?

    I sister broke the on button and I just want to take the front off to check to see if I can fix the problem or if not just press the smaller button underneath the button. I have been able to take the top off to see the circuit board but I can't seem to find a way to take off the front with the button. I know you can do it I have seen my dad do it before but I can't seem to find a way.

  • Am I iv breeding my pokemon right and if I am can I do it more efficiently?

    I think I am breeding by shroomishes right so far I have a male and female shroomish with perfect speed and attack. I am about to venture into the defenses I am aimimg for at least the mid 20s for defense and attack but HP I need the perfect 31 to get the 13% toxic orb health gain and sp attack I don't care about.

    I am playing emerald and my method is to breed 2 pokemon with good ivs together and choose out the best of the bunch with the same good ivs as there parents and some new good ivs that they randomly got and then breeding it in place of its mother/father. I check for evs using my cloned rare candies via the emerald glitch where I check them all out at about level 20. Is that a good method or are there better? Also since this is for the 4th/5th gen metagame I have to migrate my pokemon over at some point when do you think it would be go to migrate them?

    Also finally nothing to do with iv breeding but if you migrate a breloom with in a 3rd gen game is there a chance that in the 4th gen game it will have poison heal? Because I heard that migrated Clefables sometimes get magic guard does that happen with breloom to or is Clefable a special case?

  • In fable 2 do the clothes you wear protect you like armor in fable 1?

    I am just wondering because I charge into battle with the same clothes I wear to make people attracted to me >.>. The bandits are always calling me names. Is this ok because in the original fable you had different clothes for battling that protected your health and clothes for domestic purposes that looked good. Is there any point in fable 2 to buy not the most attractive clothes?

  • Can you starve when you are fat? If not why isn't not eating a little while a good weight lose strategy?

    I have often wondered this. I mean you store fat for periods of famine so they don't die of starvation. So if we are storing fat for no good reason why isn't it a good idea just not to eat to get rid of it?

  • We we legalized cannibalism on already dead people how much food would we save?

    I am wondering if push comes to shove would it be even worth it to legalize cannibalism on already dead people to solve food shortages. Or is the amount of people meat you would get not worth it.

  • Why are people in this day and age for small government when we in fact had a war against it and won?

    People seem to forget that besides slavery another large cause for the Civil War was small government and states rights vs. big government. In the end big government won the war and the ideologies of small government should of been put aside. But here we are over 100 years later and small government advocates still are around and are even growing in numbers. So why haven't we given up this idea even though it lost long long ago?

  • What can ethically be done to clean society up?

    I mean there is a good portion of the human population that just can't get the basic laws and rules of society in there heads. Lets take drug addicts as an example. It doesn't seem like current schooling of what the drug is or what its effects are have any effect at all on future users. They just seem to simply block out what we teach them and go about doing whatever they want. And sadly they pass this ignorance down to there children and usually there children become drug addicts to. I realize people can come out of even the worst environment and become in the end good people but that's more of the exception then the norm. Overall a quarter of the population is just plain stupid. Is there anything we can do about this besides the unethical mass genocide.

  • Help on making a Black and White team planned out based on nicknames?

    I am wanting to make a Black and White team with each pokemon named after a communist leader. They go as follows:

    -Mao Zedong



    -Karl Marx

    -Fidel Castro

    -Kim Jong-il

    I have already decided on Mao Zedong for Pokabu but I need help on the rest. Remember they need to express these leaders personalities or appearance in some way. Also they must all be Isshu pokemon since you can only catch those in black and white.

  • Why when solving equations and other things in math do you no consider the negative square root?

    Like for example the square root of 9 is both positive and negative 3. I learned that back in Alebra 1 but here I am in pre-calculus solving equations with square roots and I only even consider the negative root of a number or solution with quadratic formula. Why do we just no use them they are in fact solutions?
