    Yeah, you don't go too deep before cooling becomes an issue. The core of this planet is HOT, and all that heat is trying to get out through the crust.

    There, the only reason you can get by with such a shallow depth is that the system uses a heat pump. Basically it's a refrigerator where what would be the inside and outside of a refrigerator can be swapped between the house's interior and the groundwater. Pump heat into the ground in summer, pump heat out in winter.

    With that, all that matters is to get the ground loop of the system comfortably deep enough that the water there will never freeze in winter, so the thermal mass and conductivity of the soil around the ground loop stays high. The same logic applies for injection-well open loop systems, you're just letting the natural water table between the soil grains do the same job as the pipes in a closed loop system.

    If you didn't have the heat pump, you'd need the loop to go deep enough that the ground was always at a comfortable temperature. Around here, the water table groundwater is a bit too cool for that.

    Also, if you did that, you could very easily be in bedrock at the right temperature layer, and you'd have to either make a huge loop to make up for the worse thermal properties, or fracture the rock and use two wells to inject and extract water at that depth, which is effectively the same thing but with rock replacing the pipe walls.

    My newest headcanon is that Epic Rap Battles of History and all the various Fate anime take place in the same universe. The rap battles are how Heroic Spirits keep themselves occupied while they're waiting to be summoned.

    Diablo:

    In at least one point in history, the inhabitants of Whimsyshire had control of the Pandemonium Fortress.
    I imagine Elminster's standard day begins like "Wake up, exit my completely impenetrable, spell-proofed bedroom to go to the bathroom, kill the inevitable 3 balors waiting there, brush my teeth, have a wizard fight with the archlich hiding in the shower, use the toilet..."

    Dark Souls.

    Solaire isn’t quite the jolly knight who’s looking for his sun for religious purposes, but is more likely a hollow looking for challenges to reach the gods. With you as his rival to race to higher heights.

    After all, why the hell would he have worked so hard to achieve his strength, journey across the lands, and even join you, if you do something for his ‘quest’, to fight Gwyn, the Lord of Sunlight, basically his god?

    Yes, I can understand he could do all of this out of friendship with you, but I find it more interesting that he does all not out of random kindness, not to mention in a Souls game, but out of rivalry to possibly the very end.

    By the time you can fight The Lord of Sunlight, things are already being framed as a succession. Or, in other words, Solaire's god is dying no matter what you do, so his only way to serve that god is to help you become that god.

    Eh, fair enough. But the idea still stands that he could very well be more of a friendly rival more than just be the friendly paladin

    The Slaad language in D&D sounds like the vocalizations from the "Crazy Frog" remix of Axel F

    Guys, Solaire's a part of the Warriors of Sunlight. They follow the Firstborn (probably Nameless King) not Gwyn. His gods whole shtick is that he betrayed Gwyn in some way.

    The villain from Coraline represents pet owners. She wants to replace the protagonist's mother and have unnecessary surgery performed on her, which are both characteristics of pet owners.

    The hypnosis placed on Nezuko in Kimetsu no Yaiba is actually completely unnecessary and didn't even work. Nezuko is just that much of a good person.

    All the events of the Future Trunks timeline still happen in the main timeline of Android saga DBZ, just toned down or shuffled around so that they are recoverable and or dealable, thus timelines in dragon ball have a checklist of events to fill out, but how they are fulfilled is flexible enough that different things can come from them happening.

    Ash Ketchum's true calling is a Pokemon Ranger, because while he is friends with pokemon he is constantly picking them up and letting them loose and is more successful at saving pokemon from criminals than fighting with them in Leagues.

    things like Chimera Ants and Thing are the WEAKER threats of the wider world of Hunter X Hunter, the stronger ones are horrific eldritch abominations that the Hunters need to set up specific plans years in advance to get rid of and their existence is kept top secret.
