I started taking biology this semester, and now I have a question for the people who make the card names. What does punching yourself in the face have anything to do with homeostasis?

# This thread's title has finally been decided on

**phoenixtoasches**#7707

I actually tried looking it up and the best I can figure is that homeostasis is the regulation of an internal system whose amount of entropy differs from the surrounding and rebuke means to scold or disapprove.

Homeostasis doesnāt necessarily pertain only to humans, it could also mean in more broader terms that there is a natural order of things so to speak that must be maintained. So Homeostatic Rebuke could be nature scolding (or punishing) you for breaking that established status quo or natural order.

**deekester**#7708

Yeah, that could be it. Homeostasis is just the ability of living things to regulate their internal conditions, such as keeping a constant temperature of 97 in humans

Iād like to order 63 please. And do you guys have a prosthetic ass back there cause mine is just a nub now.

You know a while back i mentioned performing āBe Preparedā from The Lion King? Well, the presentation is on Saturday and I guess you could say the experience hasā¦

Scarred me.

My sister sewed the mane, tail, and ears onto the costume and did the makeup since sheās good at that sort of thing. Kudos to her.

**phoenixtoasches**#7712

Lookinā good! Kudos to your sister for the craftwork as well, Iām sure you can use the sweater for some persona 4/winnie the pooh/FNAF/Sand of Destruction/Tales of Abyss/Dragon Ball Super cosplay, is this for a school play?

**deekester**#7713

This is for 4-H, although Iām going to be performing the song (without the costume) for an audition in my collegeās school play.

**excogitator**#7714

Hereās my interpretation:

Homeostasis is the bodyās "equilibrium."

Units with equal attack and health are āat equilibriumā when it comes to stats.

Rebuke breaks the equilibrium by punishing minions with equal attack and health.

Math time!

My math skills are a little rusty beyond just working stuff out with basic algebraā¦and I canāt remember a lot of formulas without looking them up, if I have an idea of what Iām looking for.

My niece in 7th grade sent me this puzzleā¦

I was able to answer it in five minutes, because of its simplicity and by using quick mental computation.

ā¦but I know there is a way to do this with a formula or something. Iāve been out of college a long time, and havenāt had a math class even longer.

Soā¦what is the solution that I am looking for? I know the answers, but not how to easily show my process with a formula.

It kills me how much Iāve forgotten.

**phoenixtoasches**#7721

Its a little complicated, but I think you would use the law of substitution here.

Similar to how if you were given a linear graph problem and told to solve for x and y:

x+y=100

2x+4y=120

Rearrange x+y=100 to get:

y=100-x

Then to solve for x:

2x+4(100-x)=120

2x+400-4x=120

-2x+400=120

-2x=-280

x=140

Then solve for y:

y=100-x

y=100-(140)

y=-40

And thus:

x=140

y=-40

Can someone confirm?

**phoenixtoasches**#7723

Yeah, for professionalism and because I got a number wrong, but the concept I presented should still be solid.

**isbee**#7724

Yeah, I can follow your computations.

Iām just sayingā¦man, Iāve lost so much.

Thanks!
