I put my money on the pinnacle of human achievement being Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Lots of composers made nine or more symphonies, but there is only one Ninth Symphony.

Runners-up include (in no particular order) the wheel, space exploration, Super Mario Bros. 3, agriculture, controlled fire, beer, condoms, air conditioning and Pasteur's rabies vaccine.

This headline is basically a Batsignal for Heisenberg Punctuation Mark. I'm impressed I got here before he did.

Well, personally I'd nominate der Ring des Niebelungen.

Woah. This hits close.

I just traded around 5,000 Alpha through Ice Age cards to a local comic shop for store credit on new issues, so I'm getting a kick.

It's actually a three -way tie between camera-phones, the ability to hack camera-phones, and Christina Hendricks

If some of those early edition cards included Moxes and/or a Black Lotus, I hope you got a shiat-ton of store credit.

/cause you can still sell them for upwards of $300 each on ebay

Wait, have Black Lotus' actually dropped that much? I remember when they were going for $800-1,200 a few years ago. The Moxes were around $2-300, but the Alpha/Beta Lotus' were always heavy hitters.

None of those were magic cards. And wtf were they doing rolling their D20s?

FAIL. Video shows Pokemon I assume, but not MTG cards.

they haven't dropped.

price did 'stabilize' sometime mid last decade more or less fluctuates based on inflation and the dollar's strength vs the euro.
/still should get rid of what is left of my power.

I've been thinking about doing this too. I've got a bunch of Revised through the Urza's sets just sitting in boxes in the closet.

I can't quite grasp how space exploration is the pinnaacle of magic the gathering?

As long as they explore the complex relationship between Gerard Capishen and Mirri, I'm cool.
 
2012-09-14 09:13:07 PM  
Sorry.....had to avoid certain MTG rules and had to make all original cards to walk the fine line of licensing despite being a "fan-film"

Oh lord who is the bigger nerd, you for saying that, or me for understanding it?

They were probably rolling to see who goes first.

The cheapest mox is like 400, the expensive ones are like 600-700. A black lotus in very good condition can fetch upwards of 20,000 easy if it is beta/alpha.

BTW, I just came in here to say "I'd tap that."

Because people think all nerd things are the same thing.

talking incessantly about your linux boxes requires rolling a d20 as well, dont you know anything?

No, no -- the headline says the puppet musical of Magic is either a pinacle or it's space exploration.

CCG puppets singing in outer space could really be something. Something I won't have to hear.
