Forgive me for being Mr. Robot, but…

… I just don’t understand why people buy anime figurines. And that’s speaking as a person who probably has more manga on his shelf than he should. I mean— they don’t do anything, they just sit there and collect dust. I like having manga because it’s easy to read while sitting on the toilet, or on the train or bus.

But unlike collectible merchandise such as, say, Star Wars figures or something, there isn’t a substantial collector’s market for unique, first editions and so on, so they don’t make sense from a financial standpoint. Perhaps ostensibly as just a decoration, then? But who would decorate their house with anime figurines? It seems that they’re more of a private thing — the idea of putting an anime figure on your mantelpiece or the coffee table strikes one as absurd. Does this 6-inch figure of a maid flipping up her skirt perfectly offset the living room curtains?

So what’s the point? It’s one thing that I just can’t grok.

Breaking D&D 3.5: The “Locate City” Nuke

ihititwithmyaxe:

So for a long time I thought this didn’t work. Then I went and read all the feats myself, and thought outside the box a bit, fixed a glaring issue, and I think this really does almost work. Though there are still reasonable hiccups, what is absolutely valid is still enough to do nicely.

I’m a Human Sorcerer, level 12. I know a few spells, I have a few feats pertaining to the manipulation of energy damage. I look like nothing special, perhaps your run-of-the-mill middling blaster. But my particular combination of spells, feats, and applications can lay waste to an area the size of Spain with a single first level spell. Here’s how I do it in just a few steps.

Dear god. What have you done. D:

How does the mermaid’s spine work?

Are they mammals, or fish?

We can easily distinguish the difference between seagoing mammals and fish by the way their bodies move. Animals based on a mammalian (or terrestrial) body plan have spines that arch up and down, vertically, because they evolved from mammals that ran along the beach. Fish move their bodies laterally, from side to side.

So how do mermaids move their bodies?

For some reason, whenever I read about someone being “triggered”, this image pops into my head of an anime character sitting in a corner, clutching their head and making a crazy bug-eyed expression like this.
I … I think I may have watched too much anime. Haha!

Age of Consent — 25

If current neuroscience tells us that the pre-frontal cortex, the part of our brain responsible for higher-order cognitive processing and governing reason, does not finish developing until around 25, wouldn’t it be logical, therefore, to propose raising the age of consent to 25?

WRONG

Right, if you’re the type (like me) to start with drawing the frame of the torso first, then add boobs.

Women with slim or flat chests are easier to draw than ones with larger breasts.
