For those who have asked or have considered asking about the flooding currently occurring in West Virginia: Our family is safe. Our house is up on a mountain and far enough from the flood plains to not be directly affected. However, there are many people in our area who are affected. If you wish to help those in need, please contact the WV division of the American Red Cross or the WV VOAD, or check out this Huffington Post article for additional links.

Alternate-universe Ki: What did you mean by "stuck?"
Nick: Just that. I've hit a brick wall. I can't explain it...

Nick: Functionally, this thing is identical to my Velociraptor back home. But every time I try to power it up, it doesn't seem to do anything but spit out sparks and smoke.

Alternate-universe Ki: Perhaps there's something you've overlooked.
Nick: That's what I thought. But I've spent the past two hours going over everything. It's all correct.

Alternate-universe Ki: Out of curiosity, did you try reversing the polarity somewhere?
Nick: You saw that irony too. Yep, and all that happened was that the smoke switched from green to red.
