I'm skipping. - (gun shot) - That one exists. And that one exi-- oh my god. - (ding) - (uncontrollable laughter) Okay! - "I hope you've been paying attention to the question numbers!" Oh... oh... oh-oh-oh-oh. - (gun shot) - Aw. - Let's go to 26. - (gun shot, screaming) https://sedatchess.com/esports-tournaments/
- That-- that wasn't 26. - I know there's one question where it tells you to use all of your skips, but I'm probably not gonna get to that one, so I'll use my skip. - (ding) - 26. 27. Wait, go to 28. - Skippity do-dah. - (ding) - I forgot to look at the stupid thing! It's gotta be 28. I think we passed 21 and 24, so it's 28. - "What is this?" Skip, all right. - I like "abundance," but it's probably gonna be "cruel". - (gun shot) - All right, no. - (ding) - Sure. - "Abundance!" That's-- okay, I have to pick that one. - (ding) - It's so funny. - "What flavor is cardboard?" - "Talc." - (gun shot) - What do you want from me? - (gun shot, screaming)
- It's pork scra-- aw. (chuckles) - I'm gonna lose this one for sure. It's definitely not any of these three. But it's probably not talc. - (gun shot, screaming) - Yeah, okay. I guess I'm done for now. Until I go home and don't study for my physics exam so I can finish this. - This is one of those ones, like, you don't-- - (gun shot) - Pork scratch-- - (screaming) - Now I know which one it is. - "Egg mayonnaise." - (ding) - Whew. - "Put the mouse on here." "Now don't touch"-- again?! No! - All right. Next question. - Nice and easy. (exhales) - (ding) - Killin' the game. - (dog) Woof! - (startled gasp) - (dog) Woof! - (snickers) - (dog) Woof! - That's three woofs. - (ding) - "What are the main ingredients of shampoo? - "Cricket crap." - (gun shot) - ShamPOO. It's poo.
ShamPOO. Maybe it's "human feces". - (ding) - It's poo. Shampoo. I'm understanding now. - "How many letters in his hand?" - Five, six, seven, eight, nine. And it's a severed hand. That's nice. - (gun shot, screaming) - Okay, I'm done. (headphones clatter) - Whatever, I don't care. - (gun shot, screaming) - Son of a-- whatever. - Letters... in his hand. The phrase "his hand". Okay, this is becoming redundant. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven. - (ding) (ding) - Nice, seven. - (ding) - Okay. (chuckles) "Elephants don't like mice." Wait, what do I-- or... huh. - (ding) - (chuckles) - Am I supposed to click somewhere? I'm afraid that if I click something, I lose a life. - (clicks mouse) - So... oh. Oh, they don't like mice. - If I had my mouse out, he wouldn't come. He'd run away. "If you press this button, it's game over." - (record scratches) - Thanks. (chuckles) "What do you call a wingless fly?" - "A walk." (snickers) - (ding) - Classic. - "Can you get this question wrong?" - "Nope," "Of course not," "No way." (sighs) Seriously? - Yeah, probably. Uh, let's just give this. - (ding) - Some of them, see, they just don't make sense. They're just are like-- all right. Here's... [bleep] "nope". - (ding) - Yeah! That was cool. - "No way." - (ding) - (sighs) - "Mary Rose sat on a pin." Bur-- - (gun shot) (screaming) - Oh really? Oh really? - (gun shot) (screaming) - No! I have to go through all of that again for that stupid joke that I don't even understand? - (gun shot) (ding) - "Mary Rose sat on a pin." And then Mary rose. Oh, dang! I remember this one too. - "Cough drops." - (gun shot) - Aw. - (ding) - No, it's that. - There isn't even a question. "Cylindrical adventures" is probably my favorite pun. - (ding) - Okay. - "Cylindrical adventures." - "Don't touch the pink. Hmm, if only you had a bridge." How do you make a bridge? Oh! - Hey, I got a bridge! Impossible my butt. - I did have a bridge. Oh! - (ding) - (duck squawks) - What? - (gun shot) - What? (chuckles) Uh... - (gun shot, screaming) - Aw, come on. - (duck squawks) - I don't care. - Afro. (chuckles softly) "What is the--" It's just the most ridiculous answers. - "What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything? Hint: it's 42." I bet it's not 42. (tsks) - (gun shot) (gun shot) (gun shot, screaming) - Aw, come on! What the heck? If I knew that answer, I would beat it. - (gun shot) - You have got to be kidding me. Do 42 42? - So that's 40, so this is 42. - (ding) - 40-- 42. - (ding) (sighs) "Bridget makes everyone..." I don't what it is. - (ding) - "Tom Cruise." - (ding) - I think you've just gotta go with the most random answer. That's what I'm going as. This is probably a puzzle. - "Click..." Uh, here, somewhere. - (ding) - Okay. - Oh, I gotta just click right here. - (ding) - All right. Ah, "Flag, square"-- [bleep] Wingdings. Skip this! - (ding) - Nope. Okay, skip. - (ding) - What's happening here? - (gun shot, screaming) - I wanna try one more time, and that's it. - I know what that is. - (chuckling) Oh my god.

(wearily) I've had enough. - "Slap-me-do"-- - (gun shot) - "Splapp-me-do." - (ding) Okay. Blue, red, blue, yellow. - (ding) - All right. - (punching) - GO! [Inaudible] THE CHAIR! (victorious cry) Do, do, do, do "Carrot!" Crap. Shoulda ate my vegetables. This looks like a carrot. - (siren wails) - Look at him! "Marmite." "Marmite, but pa might not!" - (ding) You "shanghai"? Uh, no, about 20 centimeters off the ground. "What is the digestive system?" - (clock ticks) - "A series of organs designed to break down food and extract energy and nutrition"-- I don't know if it's "cheese". "A game console"-- - (gun shot) - Dang, it's cheese! - (screaming) - NO!!! Ugh. Stupid bomb. I think I could beat it eventually if I have the patience and the time to actually do it.
Maybe I'll just do it in my English class. - Thanks for watching us play The Impossible Quiz on the React channel. - Like this episode if our frustration caused you joy. - How far did you get in The Impossible Quiz? Let us know in the comments. - See you next time. - That's it! I quit! No more! Flips table! I'm out. Bye-bye.
MATT: Okay. Frumpkin keeps watch. The Watchmaster, as you heard him notified earlier, turns to the rest of you. "So. The investigation will begin. If any information comes to light that could "alleviate you of the charges brought to this carnival, come to me and let me know.
If you have "no answers before we complete this investigation, then I believe you all will fall into the judgment." LAURA: Next time we don't help. That's what it comes down to. MARISHA: I know, we got paid the first time we helped, and then we got arrested the second time. I don't know what lesson to learn here.
SAM: Just say okay and let's leave. LIAM: Yeah, yeah. MATT: So the guards escort you out of the tent.
Molly, you're stuck behind with Gustav and Bo the Breaker, with a guard of five Crown's Guards set to keep watch. As the rest of you are sent to the city, the Watchmaster turns once more and says, "Remember, you flee, I'll find you." And that's where we'll end tonight's session. SAM: No way! What? No!
I want to keep playing. TALIESIN: I'm so excited, this is great. LIAM: It's a good spot. ASHLEY: We did it, we did it. TRAVIS: Holy shit this website.
LAURA: We have to get Molly out! SAM: (sighs) Everything's better with Molly. (laughter) TALIESIN: Truer words were never spoken. MATT: Well, guys, welcome to the new campaign. Season two, I guess. LIAM: Oh my goodness.
MARISHA: It feels so weird. SAM: Look at these cool Wyrmwood cases that we have! MATT: Fucking Sam. I swear to god. MARISHA: I used 100% new dice.
No repeats from Keyleth. TRAVIS: Yeah, totally new dice. TALIESIN: I kept the Gil die. LAURA: I used some new dice. TRAVIS: What are you talking about?
LAURA: Some new dice. MATT: I used this beautiful little-- TALIESIN: Fuck you. MATT: The Snitch is mine now.
LIAM: Look at all the 20s Taliesin rolled tonight. MATT: I know. Oh man. I'm excited. SAM: Such cool characters, guys!
MATT: I'm excited to see where this goes. SAM: I still don't know what half of you guys are. What's Travis? MATT: Everyone did something that revealed them tonight. SAM: I don't know nothing, I don't know how to play D&D. MARISHA: Should we all say in case you're Sam and you don't know?
TRAVIS: I'm a ballerina. MARISHA: He's a prima. MATT: Well, guys. Happy New Year. Welcome back, Happy New Year to you guys.
Thank you for coming along with us on this first episode of a new journey. Thank you, Backblaze and DnD Beyond, for being awesome sponsors partnered with us going forward. Thank you, Wyrmwood, for this amazing table.
Thank you guys for coming along with us this evening for our first dive into this new venture. Hope you enjoyed it. We did. MARISHA: Thank you to our amazing crew. SAM: Thank you, Matt Mercer, for this amazing new campaign! Welcome to Wildemount.
MATT: I'm excited. SAM: Thanks, Yev. MATT: Guys, have a wonderful evening. We'll see you next week. See where this next stage in the story takes us.
Ashley, I'm glad you could make it for this first episode. ASHLEY: Yeah, me too. MATT: Until then, have a wonderful night, sleep well, and is it Thursday yet? Good night! (cheering) [music]
LAURA: She's really shy, though, and I hear she only talks to tieflings, so you should probably send-- MATT: "Stay where you are." LAURA: --my brother along, because he's really good with that stuff. TALIESIN: Try not to stab any random people on your way there, Flynn.
You're doing good. MATT: "My men tell me that the rest of you helped destroy these fiends. Is that correct?"
ALL: Yeah. MATT: "Then on behalf of the Starosta, I appreciate your aid. But until this investigation "is complete, you are all under investigation from us.
Where are you staying?" TRAVIS: The Nestled Nook Inn. SAM: Nested Nook. MATT: Nestled. He got it right. SAM: Oh, shit.
One letter. God damn it. TRAVIS: I have an intelligence of 14. I know what I'm doing. MATT: "Do not leave this city unless you are told otherwise. Should you do so, I have your names, "and I can have the full might of the Cerberus Assembly track you down.
You. Flynn. Free this "girl." While you all stand in the tent, Flynn approaches you and walks a little bit behind you, weapon drawn but at the side. Do you lead him out of the tent?
Okay. So you walk through the performer's flap, and as you walk out, you can see backed up into the number of tents that are set up, and some of the carts, other members of the circus are hiding, and as soon as you exit out the front and they see you before the Crown's Guard, they all immediately scatter and vanish to the nearby shadows, out of sight. The two of you walk out into the center, the fire crackling in a small pit off to the side. "All right, where is this girl you speak of?"
ASHLEY: She's in the back in the tents. MATT: "Show me." ASHLEY: Follow me. MATT: He follows you. Which tent do you lead him to? Over here?
Okay, there's a larger tent, as he walks by your side, there's the flap that's slightly open. SAM: God, you could seduce him. ASHLEY: Go get her. She won't talk to me.
She's too scared of me. MATT: "All right." Gets his weapon ready and walks into the tent.
ASHLEY: I close the tent and I take off. MATT: Okay. There's a few moments before, in the distance, you hear a voice say, "The tent is "empty.
What are you talking about? Hello? Helloooo?"
(laughter) MATT: And you don't look back, and you just run into the darkness of night, into the Marrow Fields and disappear. SAM: But that's so mysterious. LIAM: While that was happening, I'm close to the edge of the tent, and at some point I just (snap) and summoned Frumpkin. I have a 30-feet outside the tent, so Frumpkin's out there.
"I had a gut feeling that you were nothing but trouble when you came into our town." Gustav turns around. "I guarantee to you, my friend, I have no idea--" "What happened here?" The Crown's Guard who's been shaken turns around and goes, "Sir, Flynn.
There was a creature. This carnival "seemed to create some sort of terrible entity that killed and then created a secondary beast. I "watched it with my own eyes from the back row." And the man turns back towards Gustav and the rest of you. "And who else saw that?"
TRAVIS: We did. LAURA: Well, we saw an old guy turn into a zombie. But it's possible that he just died because he was old, and then he had the zombie curse on him and just turned, you know? Because that happens a lot. TALIESIN: (deadpan) Gustav, it's no use, we've been found out.
Our terrible plot to make a zombie rampage through our carnival has been discovered. Whatever will we do now that we've been discovered for our brilliant plot to make a zombie ruin our circus. My god. MATT: Flynn turns to you and goes, "Put your weapons down or we'll arrest you immediately!"
TALIESIN: I'm literally holding nothing but my hands. LIAM: I mean, I'm sorry, but we're basically a group of strangers. Most of us don't know each other. We all have the same story. There was a show, an old man became a thing, and we helped destroy it.
This one destroyed it. What more do you want from us? TALIESIN: It ruined our show. MATT: Flynn turns back and says, "Watchmaster, what should we do?" And the man with the helmet under his arm walks forward, walks to Gustav, gives him one look over, still a few inches shorter than him. Looks at him with a sense of purpose and social status that has a sense of disinterest and disrespect.
"You, sir, and your orc, and your circus, are considered currently "under arrest. Who else belongs to your merry band?" He looks about the rest and Gustav goes, "The orc." Glances back at the two of you and goes, "The rest of them are just purveyors of our "performances. He was just joking earlier, right?" Make a deception check.
SAM: Oh boy. TALIESIN: Nope. MATT: "And you are also under arrest.
The rest of you, what are your names?" LAURA: Shirley. SAM: Temple. (muffled laughter) LIAM: Caleb Widogast. MARISHA: Beau, same as him.
TRAVIS: Bo. (laughter) SAM: I am Bo! TRAVIS: You pointed at me.
MARISHA: I meant the NPC Bo! But it works! ASHLEY: Here's the thing. Oh, it's Mary by the way, but I think I know who might know what has happened here. MATT: "Do you?
Tell me." ASHLEY: I'll have to go get her. MATT: "Who is this?" ASHLEY: She is the singer that made this all happen. MATT: "Flynn, escort this woman to retrieve this individual she speaks of." Flynn nods and walks over towards you.
Over the last decade or so, college attendance has been less about turning out productive citizens with career options and much more of a numbers game. Admissions departments often believe that if they can get a large number of applicants then they will be able to turn more of them down, thereby securing a higher rank on the US News list and other ranking lists. Initially, this may be true, but the ways in which many schools are going about this is wasteful and ineffective.
looking for new students Most schools spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on man hours and direct marketing materials that go to an indiscriminate student population. Pamphlets and visitation booklets that promise things like waived application fees, one-on-one advising prior to admission and other costly items, which, if a student applies, is accepted and then decides to enroll, is a great investment. Let’s face it, ratings are great, but it’s tuition that pays the bills. Colleges that use this strategy actually see a far lower percentage of conversions (students who opt to actually enroll and attend the university). This, in turn, means a far lower amount of money coming in for tuition. To avoid big expenses, use an online assignment writing service when you need help in learning.
The Need for a Marketing Plan
If you have a very strategic marketing plan that pinpoints those students who are the best fit for your school, you will likely have a lower application rate and a higher acceptance rate, but you will also have a higher conversion rate which translates directly into more tuition to fund your school. When creating your strategy, you will need to keep this in mind and not let those initial numbers scare you away, especially if you are a school that has spent years using the “grab bag” method of sending direct marketing to everyone and their dog (it has actually happened that someone was sent college admissions information for their dog because of a mailing list error). When you focus your marketing you will also be saving money on materials and man hours, allowing you to spend more time working on finding those students who will truly shine at your institution and who will be a greater benefit overall (not just financially).
When marketing to specific students, focus on those things that make your university special and stand out from the others. Focus on the quality of education that you will be able to provide them in their chosen field (if your university if one of the top research universities, focus on the student research positions available on campus). By targeting your marketing, you may receive a lower number of applications, but the applications you receive will be of the highest quality.
Maybe you can see now why those ratings are extremely low, but we haven’t looked at the good side of The Fly 2 and I do think it certainly had its moments. If you’re a gorehound then you have to appreciate the elevator scene and the various vomiting scenes; these really do take some beating, even by today’s standards. It was also a great move to show footage from the earlier remake and to me it was well paced, as a fan of the remake I enjoyed seeing more and the “Dad” encryption near the end was a nice touch. It had a B horror movie quality and I enjoyed the ending. It is just one of those horror films that I would watch over again and I am glad that it was made. Looking at the positives against the negatives, I would call that The Fly 2 was a decent enough horror movie. That 4.4/10 rating is just ridiculous.
The only three characters that you need to be aware of are Martin Brundle (Eric Stoltz), Beth Logan (Daphne Zuniga) and Anton Bartok (Lee Richardson)! Veronica Ronnie Quaife was shown on screen for literally two minutes and was played by Saffron Henderson rather than Geena Davis which was a shame. The very simple premise is that Martin Brundle is born into a world controlled by Bartok Industries. This super intelligent life form accelerates in growth quickly and begins showing signs of his insect heritage. Martin Brundle takes responsibility as he gets older and users his genius mind to try and fix the transportation pods. The romance between Beth and Martin seemed rushed to me and once they become “active” we find out the true dark nature of Bartok Industries. It becomes rather enjoyable watching the demise of certain individuals of this organization… it has to be said!
Summary: Chris Walas made a point that the audience would feel more sympathy for the mutated animal than they would for a human. Notice, a dog suffers and the film develops a large volume of hate… a human being then dies in one of the most disturbing and painful ways imaginable and the same haters don‘t flinch! Sure, The Fly 2 lacked the brilliance of Goldblum and the masterful direction of David Cronenberg, but it’s not nearly half as bad as people make out. It’s one of those horror sci-fi movies that I have on DVD and would watch over again. I know many horror films that I couldn’t watch more than once and so for me The Fly 2 is certainly underrated, it does provides entertainment and I think the entire franchise stands as one the of the greatest in the history of horror. I really enjoyed the theme of science gone horribly wrong - David Cronenberg was well known within this field in his early days and there’s no question that it all started with Frankenstein. Good attempt.
