- Me in Math class: This is so pointless. When am I ever going to use this?
- Me playing Magic the Gathering: If average power of creatures in the set is .85/mana and average toughness is 1.28/mana, then the set should be 57% slower than Zendikar limited, which means games should go about 12.667 turns with a standard deviation of 4.12 turns, so I should draft midrange decks when seeing fewer than X removal spells for toughness < 4 by X+2 pick.
- Me playing D&D: For strength 62 at level 18, using 346 lbs as medium load for 22 strength x (4^4) for nonlinear carrying capacity scaling beyond the table, x 3 for size = 265728 lbs, when thrown weapons deal (N-400)/200 x 1d6 + 5d6 + (strength bonus) x 1.5 where N=265728, my hulking hurler deals 1331d6 = 1331 x 3.5 = 4697 per hit.
- Me playing League of Legends: If my base gold generation rate is 13g/10s and Heart of Gold at 825g increases by 5g/10s, it'll pay for a Sight Ward at 75g after 2:30 and itself in 27:30 netting ((n-1650) x .5)g where n is seconds since purchasing Heart of Gold.
- Me in Math class: I'm never going to use this. Why am I learning this?
That moment when Tezzeret is in full etherium armor fighting several Bolas(es) and Lilianas at once.
Test of Metal is really one of the more complex, yet well paced books in the Planeswalker Novel series. The character Doctor Jest really makes the comedy relief come alive and is an excellent foil to the newly reconstructed Tezzeret.
Add Clockworking (ie: Earth’s equalivant of Many-worlds interpretation/Schrödinger’s cat) and multiple perspectives that just make sense, and you have a book I’d highly recommend.
