Lately I've been buying Assam. It's very strong, but that's exactly what I need during this quarantine, and I also have a bad habit of leaving the box open.

The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers would win because they've got a power and a force like you've never seen before: they've got the ability to morph and to even up the score. No one can ever bring them down, the power lies on their si-ee-yi-ee-ide.

I'm not looking forward to it at all. Summer here is pretty hot, and hot weather is just not something I'm built to survive. The worst part is the breeze - it only makes me hotter. Right now, I'm just trying to enjoy spring while I can - it's still nice and cold for now. :D

No doubt Latin, aka the one we're both using here. Syllabic and logographic systems are interesting but tend to be overcomplicated, and abjads are simply stupid. I like Nordic Runes, too, but no matter how much I diss the Romans, they hands down made a damn good alphabet.

Edit: Ninja'd... but AN still hasn't posted a question so... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Edit 2: AN finally posted a question. I don't have a single favourite, but the UK, Germany, and Japan are my top three picks.

I would argue that Darth Sidius would win. Both characters are magical, but Palpatine has a whole technological empire in his arsenal. He could use the Galactic empire's technology to track down all Horcruxes and then quickly tackle Voldemort. Alternatively he could simply overrun him with clones. Voldemort also has little credibility as an evil lord, because he was defeated by a highschooler 6-times (7-times if you include the chamber of secrets).

Have you ever noticed that statistics is terrible for data analysis? Is it just me or do sociologists, nutritionists and politicians always conclude whatever suits their beliefs from any dataset? If not why are some statistical conclusions diametrically opposite?
