Has anyone here heard of the following Uno variant?

There is no scoring. Instead of a round ending when a hand is emptied, that player
draws 6 cards. The next time they empty their hand, they will draw 5 cards, etc., and
the game ends when a player empties their hand for the 7th time. That player wins.

"I'll admit that I went into this South Korean action-horror movie, which I knew would be about an MMA
fighter teaming up with an exorcist to fight the forces of evil, with a fair amount of expectations in mind,
but one thing I didn't expect the movie to do was tug on my heart strings in the first 15 minutes."

Have any of you called the number on the starseeds poster? (Edit: I have not.)

EDIT: Just found this.

Is that because of the stereotype that people who are frum are bad writers?

This is from last weeks FJJ

To be fair to the guy, the assumption that nonsensical's opposite is "sensical" is reasonable enough
("nonsensible" is a real word too, by the way, at least according to the Oxford dictionary).

No. (Wouldn't have been enough for that?)

Let us know!

I got one. Now, you tell us what happens when a mention is edited out of a post.
(That does assume you'll check this thread even if you aren't mentioned.)

If you quote a post that mentions someone, do they get a new mention?

There will be no hints this time.

EDIT: I will make up to 2 exceptions. The first is that no hints should be necessary.

Thatís oversimplified. Thereís this whole mindset that comes with it, along with sex-ed promoting that mindset.

Sex-ed, from what I can tell, is largely a response by the establishment to the failure of parents
to effectively teach their children either abstinence or how to not get [each other] pregnant.

see this is almost exactly what I was looking for. It really isnít clear that balhatzar was made to build  fake fetish, so I couldnít just assume it.
Lol I struggled with this too.

As I recall, that was clear enough.

Also the fantastical panel of Alonso and Ramon being escorted to Hell by demons

What about the supernatural powers of the Incas, or the aliens?

Tortilla stole the fetish and took it to Balthazar to make a fake to replace it with, then later killed Balthazar, presumably
to keep him from telling anyone. According to the Tintin fanwiki, it isn't explained how Tortilla wound up with a fake fetish;
I'd assume Herge's intention was that Balthazar made 2 fakes and gave both to Tortilla, keeping the real one for himself.
