@JackBNimble Maybe I misread - I thought you were looking at writing tag wikis/tag excerpts for them, but weren't sure what to put, so I just tossed down some suggestions
@Wikis If you're serious, it doesn't matter to me.
@Keen There is one thing I didn't take into account at all - on Meta, I have a link called "meta" that goes to the "What's Meta?" page. But that doesn't matter to me since I never used the "main" link anyway =P
Here is it in entirety:
var meta_url = $('.help-dialog a:contains("Meta")').attr('href');
var chat_url = $('.current-site a:contains("chat")').attr('href');
$('<a href="' + chat_url + '">chat</a>').insertBefore('.topbar-menu-links > *:nth(0)');
$('<a href="' + meta_url + '">meta</a>').insertBefore('.topbar-menu-links > *:nth(0)');
The parts I consider bizarre are:
1) The JS is already running on the page, so creating a <script> tag isn't necessary - just call the functions as needed directly.
2) $ is jquery on the page, so re-aliasing jQuery to $ also isn't needed
And then 3 is just a difference of opinion, not so much bizarre (and why yours has a working "main" link and mine does not): Rather than create the links with document.host, my version looks for the words "meta" and "chat", pulls the link, and creates the new links using that - no assumptions made about URL structure
@ScienceFiction&Fantasy @Thaddeus FWIW, here's how I interpreted that episode: I was pleasantly surprised to see that Tenzin and Korra were actually on the same journey. Tenzin was just as lost as Korra but Tenzin's issues were hidden by Korra being the worst avatar ever. So, Tenzin couldn't grow because he was trying to be his father. He was able to move forward only when he stepped out from Aang's shadow.
@Thaddeus: Korra also couldn't move forward until she stepped out from Rava's shadow (so to speak). So by relying on her own spiritual power she was able to defeat Unalaq. In other words, she became her own avatar. I didn't initially see this as energy bending per se, but now I'm not so sure. And yes, I thought Unalaq/Vaatu were much more powerful because Rava stated earlier as darkness grows Vaatu grows and Rava wanes
@Thaddeus: I think this episode was brilliant and a logical progression in the Avatar cycle. Such as Rava helped the Avatar to grow and then eventually stand on their own. Again, this is all just how I interpreted the episode. If you think this qualifies as an answer let me know, but it's probably too speculative :(
The company where I work we name internal software after characters/things from The Lord of the Rings universe. I will be creating a new project for the marketing department and I'm scratching my head thinking of a character/object/city that represents wealth/success.

I understand that the Jedi use the Force for self defence, but still, couldn't they just use the Force to snap their foes' necks and be done with it? Like when Jaina Solo was hunting down Darth Caedus. Or even when Caedus was duelling Grand Master Skywalker. If he just used the Force to snap Skyw...

Typical DC or Marvel comics heroine would wear incredibly fan-servicy yet absolutely impractical clothing.
The was of course deconstructed in a number of places (my favorite being the amazing "Evil, Inc" webcomic).
But was this ever deconstructed in mainstream DC or Marvel comic as well?
We know that Tolkien heavily borrowed ideas from Norse and other mythologies, since Middle-Earth was meant to be the missing myths for England.
Was there a figure similar to Tom Bombadil in Norse or any other myths that Tolkien was using as basis for his work?
