August 8[edit]

I am confused on how to play 1000 Blank White Cards.[edit]

The article 1000_Blank_White_Cards isn't very clear on how to play, can anyone simplify or explain it to me?

As far as I can tell, you make up rules and write them on the cards either at the beginning of the game or as you go along or both. Each player gets a certain number of cards. Then each player plays a card in turn and applies the rule written on it. After playing a card, the player takes another card from the deck to replace it. Of course, all of this can be affected by the rules on played cards. Clarityfiend 05:15, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Fake drugs in films and TV shows[edit]

What are actors actually using when they're "doing drugs" such as cocaine or marijuana? I'd imagine that some actually are using the real drugs (especially for weed), but if they have to fake it what do they use? Anyone know?--SeizureDog 02:26, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

Apparently they use powered sugar, powdered milk, soy baby formula, or Ovaltine for cocaine. Rockpocket 05:21, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
This article explains how Weeds got hold off all those Cannabis sativa plants. Rockpocket 05:25, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
Interesting finds. Thanks.--SeizureDog 18:14, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

DSS cards in Circle of the Moon[edit]

I still need uranus and pluto. Can anyone tell me which monsters drop these cards? Thanks. --MKnight9989 12:23, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

This is a general Entertainment reference desk. You should use a game-specific reference such as if you want an answer to a question like that. -- Kainaw(what?) 17:05, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
There's no reason why they couldn't expect an answer here. They might have better luck at gamespot, perhaps, but you could make your argument about nearly every post that comes through the ref desk. Donald Hosek 21:54, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
Sooo...ANy helpful responses? --MKnight9989 12:07, 9 August 2007 (UTC) PS thanks for sticking up for me Donald
How was Kainaw's response unhelpful? If you'd taken his advice, you'd have discovered slightly earlier that uranus drops from scary candles and pluto from trick candles. Algebraist 14:14, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
My local library bans all game sites for persons under the age of 18. That's why his response was considered unhelpful. I guess I should have made that clear from the beginning --MKnight9989 13:02, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Thanks mate. --MKnight9989 13:02, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

Gundam Cartoon[edit]

There was a cartoon showed on cartoon network late at night. Its base storyline were kids going into space to learn to fly mechs. They each had their own kind of special "power" that when activated their hair glowed.


It's not a Gundam cartoon. Gundam is specific to the Gundam universe, and not even all mecha in Gundam are Gundams. Either case, it's a mecha cartoon, and you're probably thinking of The Candidate for Goddess. --Wirbelwindヴィルヴェルヴィント (talk) 21:23, 8 August 2007 (UTC)

What Movie?[edit]

What movie was it where a teen's brother is crippled because they palyed football on the roof. And then he uses the brother's wheelchair to get into baseball game for free. And the brother explains the meaning of the poem about God carrying the footsteps to the teens stoner friend? And the stoner friend says god is one bad mother ff--?--Gary123 19:39, 8 August 2007 (UTC)
