    I mean, wait for a better time. When your financial situation is better.

    It's actually possible it's not going to get better then this in the forseeable future.

    Basically, my income remains stable until I'm 30. After that... well, it's somewhat uncertain.

    Default The Power of Education

    *Checks calendar, and is surprised at the date*

    *Teleports to the center of Khazan*

    With a booming voice that could be heard all throughout the Khazan, Noldere spoke:
    "According to my calendar, today is Free Power Day. Unfortunately, I don't have anything specific ready- I kinda forgot about it. And so, I guess I'll be lazy. Since I recall some juniors of mine graduating just a few days of ago, I've decided to share with you the Power of Education. I hope you enjoy it.

    Energy radiates from Noldere, spreading quickly from him and quickly enveloping the Khazan. Those affected gain the knowledge that they have now have the Power of Education.

    The Power of Education is as thus:
    1. For a given year of education (or the equivalent) that you have, you gain the stats of your school's mascot for that year. If your school's mascot is something smaller than you, you gain the stacked abilities of your weight in that mascot. If your school's mascot is something larger than you, you gain the abilities of the larger mascot, without scaling. If you been to more than one school in any given year, the stats you gain are a mixture of all the mascots, in a percentage based on how long you were at each school.
    2. You gain these stats for each year you've been at school and didn't fail a year (in other words, failing years don't count). These stats all stack.
    3. For college and university years, things are different: instead of actual years, you gain stats by effective year (where I'm from, 30 credit hours counts as an effective year). Also, years for double and poly majors count multiple times, once for each major.
    4. For schools without mascots, you gain peak human stats for those years.


    What do you do with the Power of Education?

    Hmm. You are correct, your situation may be downhill from here.

    But that'd be a bigger incentive to save your money, I'd think.

    So lets see I get 2 years worth of Bruin powers, 1 year as a husky, IIRC 2 years as a Tiger thing (I'm not sure). And 12+Years of Peak Human.

    So yeah.Not bad.

    Rewatching the series, I still wish they kept him around longer. I liked his style.

    I mean, just to see him take on the world by laming people out and winning on points, that would be badass.

    I'd like to start a genetic engineer program to create Papua New Guinea Greater Horned Owls.
    Yeah I give up. They would need like a bajillion UNs to take it out. And they would all have to work.

    What's funny is that the results said his hits were right on while mine isn't as accurate.

    ...I guess my punches are harder than his.

    Course, the advice I was given was more "screw defense or thinking, go out there and waste him" ...And I did.

    Well, if I do end up completely broke I can always sell it.

    Look, I kinda want a new sword anyway. It's not so much a question about saving money as one of: "Do I want another live katana, or should I go for something different this time?"

    Notably, this is the cheapest sword I'm considering right now.

    When you put it that way, I guess I can't disagree with you.
