  2. Welp, Trump's new campaign logo is basically the Nazi logo with an American Flag taking place of the Swatstika: https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2020/7/1/1957644/-This-New-Logo-for-the-Trump-2020-Campaign-is-out-Please-see-what-inspired-it Feel free to mentally put "White" in front of the "America First" bit below mentally, because that's basically what he's tooting through this dog bullhorn right now.
  3. Wearing glasses makes you realize just how greasy your eyebrows can be. They rub the upper corner of your glasses near your nose, so it always inevitably gets smudgey...or maybe it just means my eyebrows need a trim.

      Get laser surgery. Best money I've ever spent. Super expensive and will require saving up for a while to be able to pay off, but man I can't overstate what a game changer it is to be free of glasses.

  4. Random thought: Elvis once ate 22 of this sandwich: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fool%27s_Gold_Loaf along with 4 other people. The sandwich is 8k calories, which means 176k calories between each of them, and assuming Elvis didn't eat the lion's share, that's still nearly 30,000 calories per person. IN ONE SITTING. Epic Meal Time before Epic Meal Time.

    For the record, the sandwich in question is a giant hollowed out loaf of bread filled with 1 jar of creamy peanut butter, 1 jar of grape jelly, and a fuckton of bacon.

      Well I mean to be fair Kazuki Takahashi was a big fan of Jojo and was greatly inspired by it which is why there's a bit of Egyptian lore and tarot themes involved due to Part 3 taking place there.

  7. Baby crocodiles sound like Star Wars lasers.

  8. Well that's one thing I didn't think I'd be learning today:

    https://getpocket.com/explore/item/the-predator-that-makes-great-white-sharks-flee-in-fear

    Apparently Orcas can kill Great White Sharks by biting their fins, and then squeezing their liver out of their wounds like toothpaste.

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Orca's are terrifying. They hunt sharks for their liver and just leave the rest. They attack Blue whales because they can. I would be terrified if I ever saw one in the water with me.

    2. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      I was thinking about this earlier, get out of my mind. XD

      Seriously though, I really was just thinking about this for no reason. I saw a documentary about orcas killing great whites while cleaning a room at work, and it was pretty interesting to see. It talked about methods Orcas possibly do this, one of which was them grabbing the shark, turning them upside down which confuses them to the point where they fall unconscious, then they proceed to eat their liver. 

      They're some brutal creatures.

  9. The Breath of the Wild Camera..it has a lens...that can identify who you target it with...

      Somehow Sora still “wouldn’t be allowed” in it according to gamers

      Don't expect that to go as far as Nintendo had gone from the sheer wow factor of putting Mario and Sonic in the same game. The appeal of having gaming guest characters from rival companies in Smash is a much tougher feat to pull off in other mediums I bet, which makes Smash even more of a stand out. Disney may be versatile enough as is, and there had been attempts like Lego Dimensions to do major non gaming crossover games. But there's no way any of them have the guts to make Mickey fighting Bugs Bunny or Spider Man fighting Batman happen. And that's without outright making it a dumping ground for all "not from a game" characters that're off limits from Smash, like Spongebob and Goku.

      Disney can absorb as many IPs they want for their cause, but the fact is that since they're primary seen as a non video gaming media, there's less of a target audience for something like this vs the audience for a crossover game about games. The most entertainment it could provide is catharsis for fans of things before Disney bought them out by letting them beat up Mickey "Scapegoat" Mouse, but that would still fade out eventually.

      Like, marvel vs starwars vs disney?

      This might make me sound edgy, but I'm honestly fine never experiencing anything under their colossal IP envelope ever again. They ran everything into the dirt.

  11. My Lazy Mode Spirit Board Battle technique for Smash Bros:

    Ganondorf + Level 99 Spirit with 3 slots + Super Slow Armor + whatever other thing.

    Then just smash attack with minimal tactics whatsoever for most fights.

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      Just have a legendary primary with 3 slots and one slot legendary support spirits that buff your attack. You’ll do ridiculous amounts of damage. 

    2. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      It's not always dealing damage that's the issue, but being able to do anything against opponents who constantly flinch and interrupt you every other second. No flinching means plenty of uninterrupted damage and time to charge up the right attacks.

      Plus I am using Legendary Spirits.

    3. KHCast

      KHCast

      I think there’s a legendary primary with unflinching/slow Armor that has 2 or 3 slots. I’d say use that and have the shine sprite  and wind fish support in your setup for maximum effect. Especially if you’re using a heavy character like Ganondorf

    Confession from a former cop on how much of a bastard they all really are, and the systemic problems that allow them to fester and exist.

    Quote

    So what do we do about it? Even though I’m an expert on bastardism, I am not a public policy expert nor an expert in organizing a post-police society. So, before I give some suggestions, let me tell you what probably won’t solve the problem of bastard cops:

    • Increased “bias” training. A quarterly or even monthly training session is not capable of covering over years of trauma-based camaraderie in police forces. I can tell you from experience, we don’t take it seriously, the proctors let us cheat on whatever “tests” there are, and we all made fun of it later over coffee.
    • Tougher laws. I hope you understand by now, cops do not follow the law and will not hold each other accountable to the law. Tougher laws are all the more reason to circle the wagons and protect your brothers and sisters.
    • More community policing programs. Yes, there is a marginal effect when a few cops get to know members of the community, but look at the protests of 2020: many of the cops pepper-spraying journalists were probably the nice school cop a month ago.

    Police officers do not protect and serve people, they protect and serve the status quo, “polite society”, and private property. Using the incremental mechanisms of the status quo will never reform the police because the status quo relies on police violence to exist. Capitalism requires a permanent underclass to exploit for cheap labor and it requires the cops to bring that underclass to heel.

    Instead of wasting time with minor tweaks, I recommend exploring the following ideas:

    • No more qualified immunity. Police officers should be personally liable for all decisions they make in the line of duty.
    • No more civil asset forfeiture. Did you know that every year, citizens like you lose more cash and property to unaccountable civil asset forfeiture than to all burglaries combined? The police can steal your stuff without charging you with a crime and it makes some police departments very rich.
    • Break the power of police unions. Police unions make it nearly impossible to fire bad cops and incentivize protecting them to protect the power of the union. A police union is not a labor union; police officers are powerful state agents, not exploited workers.
    • Require malpractice insurance. Doctors must pay for insurance in case they botch a surgery, police officers should do the same for botching a police raid or other use of force. If human decency won’t motivate police to respect human life, perhaps hitting their wallet might.
    • Defund, demilitarize, and disarm cops. Thousands of police departments own assault rifles, armored personnel carriers, and stuff you’d see in a warzone. Police officers have grants and huge budgets to spend on guns, ammo, body armor, and combat training. 99% of calls for service require no armed response, yet when all you have is a gun, every problem feels like target practice. Cities are not safer when unaccountable bullies have a monopoly on state violence and the equipment to execute that monopoly.

    One final idea: consider abolishing the police.

  16. While these protests are entirely justified and are clearly bringing about necessary and long overdue change, I can't help but be extremely worried about how much COVID-19 is likely spreading as a result of people being so heavily clustered together, even with masks (and that's not even including the police using tear gas, which increases the likelihood of fluids being spread around, or the right wing's use of biological terrorism via spitting and the aforementioned gas to use the COVID-19 against minorities). I feel extremely torn seeing any photos with large crowds in them, as a lot of these people have a good chance of getting sick, and that's a bunch of people who could end up dead.

    At the same time, like I said, this was something that was a long time coming, because if they didn't die from COVID-19, the fascist police and their fascist enablers Trump and Friends would just steadily murder them and intimidate them anyways, on top of the blatant corruption, cruelty and apathy that already existed.

    Feels like something of a rock and a hard place situation here...

  17. I prefer to believe that Bean the Dynamite's power is not merely explosives, but in reality he's actually got the power of a being a Looney Tunes-esque character in a world of anime inspired furry animals. As such, he can pull of Looney Tunes like gags that just happen to INCLUDE explosives, and is immune to injuries that would typically hurt others. That said, it also works against him, as he can get caught in Looney Tunes styled traps if you're clever enough.

      Hmm... But that would ruin his parallel to the Battle Lord KuKu. I kinda liked the dynamic, and it also lent to outlining KuKu as one of the stronger characters around.

    2. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      Bean can just outright teleport in Fighters and Megamix, so I suppose it's not too out there. 

      His parallel to the Kuku, unless that's just a comic thing... isn't something I'm aware of. So I'm not too arsed about keeping it. Everyone used bombs in that game, even Tails. His bomb use is a nod to the Dynamite Dux; Bin's his dad. 

  18. You ever feel like you just get a ton of things at one point, never use them, and then years later they turn out to be relevant to what you need? This is pretty much my old Manga Studio/CLIP Studio box, my old drawing tablet that I left lying around, a bottle of rubbing alcohol, and a bunch of other stuff I had gathering dust for so long.

  19. Thought: Solid Snake was totally a kid who loved playing in cardboard boxes. He just never stopped doing so even as an adult.

  20. https://getpocket.com/explore/item/power-causes-brain-damage?utm_source=pocket-newtab

    Interesting, so power (or being under it's influence for a long period of time) does actually apparently cause brain damage/changes functions of the brain.

    "power, in fact, impairs a specific neural process, “mirroring,” that may be a cornerstone of empathy...

    ...Was the mirroring response broken? More like anesthetized. None of the participants possessed permanent power. They were college students who had been “primed” to feel potent by recounting an experience in which they had been in charge. The anesthetic would presumably wear off when the feeling did—their brains weren’t structurally damaged after an afternoon in the lab. But if the effect had been long-lasting—say, by dint of having Wall Street analysts whispering their greatness quarter after quarter, board members offering them extra helpings of pay, and Forbes praising them for “doing well while doing good”—they may have what in medicine is known as “functional” changes to the brain. "

  21. That moment when you just realized that Kirby's Epic Yarn is a pun. Yarn is obviously referring to the cloth aesthetic, but  it ALSO can refer to "spin a yarn" ie: Telling a Tale.

    Kirby's Epic Yarn = Kirby's Epic Tale.

  23. <-- Wishes Smash Bros Ultimate would add in all of the old assets from Brawl and WiiU/3DS for the Stage Editor, even just as DLC.

  24. Huh, apparently there's a Sonic Riders Zero Gravity mod out there that fixes a lot of the game's problems.

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      That's quite nifty. A manual boost function, restoring character types and allowing you to cycle through gear are all brilliant features. But as long as it still has the neutered trick system and ZG track layouts... I'll stick to the first game. Like, the tracks in ZG are just such a snore fest I don't know what good these mods will do.

    2. Dr. Detective Mike

      Dr. Detective Mike

      Zero Gravity I remember preferring to play over the original, mostly because the zero gravity gimmick was super fun and the learning curve wasn't as steep. 

      Although, it was brilliant in the first Riders how I managed to barely squeak out a win against Jet in Babylon Garden by boosting literally RIGHT before we crossed the finish line. That was a photo finish if ever there was one.
