    Yeah. I thought having the Long Beach Aquarium to ourselves for HS prom was something... but having the Air & Space Museum to ourselves? That's flippin' epic. But I didn't even have time to do any of the simulators and stuff, too many folks to see.

    And thanks! I'm sure I'll post a status update in here ... something like "posting from the graduation stage, lol!" :p

    So no tricks with water buckets above doors or a live cow in the copy room? Wasted potential there.

    Trust me working in a hospital you could do insane stuff for branks, like spike the Coffee machine with Laxatives, play dead in the morgue, or pretend to have TBC (one student actually did play this on the doctor when he faked the test results).

    I have a dream of being where you are in the next five years, or at least before my 50th birthday.

    Congratulations!

    Do we have to call you Dr. Jello now? Or Grand Doctor Admiral Jello?

    Dr. Emperor Grand Admiral. Preceded by the style "Your Imperial Majesty" and succeeded by the postnominals "B.A., J.D., and B.A.MOFO."

    Coop- it has a group of highly trained mercenaries who are supposed to be unstoppable and love gold.

    Although I'd almost compare the Ironborn to Travissite Mandalorians. Almost. The Ironborn are an intentional parody.

    On a similar thought, I'm actually not a huge of the Unsullied in concept. Mandalorians without the stubborn streak and intense desire for independence, essentially. Perhaps it's because they haven't done much to justify their reputation so far. Maybe they'll get a better showing in the final two books.

    It then turns into Kal's fantasy, complete with a fire-breathing Lord Mirdalan.

    Sellswords come a dime a dozen on the Eastern continent, usually fighting wars for the various city states of the region. Getting Sellswords has also been mentioned a few time as option for Dany and early her Brother to build an army to take back the crown. The Unsilled are Slave Soldiers, more like Mamluks or the Janissaries, expect for that they are all Eunchs.

    Vikings always struck me as the main inspiration for the Ironborn.

    That moment when you're browsing the WMG section of TV Tropes, come across a hypothesis you love, begin to compliment whoever came up with it... and then suddenly remember you added it yourself four or five years ago. :oops::p

    Pah, deal with one Dr and you've dealt with 'em all! [face_devil]

    More seriously - congrats Jello! Now I'm curious, your doctorate was in? From what you've a posted I'm inclined to consider it sounds to be a branch of law? Perhaps international?
