...Kiddo 01 is late today because of one lane merge? Like not merging into one lane, but there's just one lane everyone has to get out of?
Y'all need to go back to driving school. And maybe reconsider your aptitude with sharp objects.
being careful about cultural appropriation
@twistylittlepassages Of course, go for it.
Just wanted to double-check before I do something dumb:
Tempted to try some face paint on Halloween. I'm thinking half black with a white wireframe skull. I dunno, been thinking of ways a skull could be a positive symbol, like "under the skin, we're all the same" kind of thing.
Problem is that feels too close to misappropriating Dia de los Muertos, and I don't want to do that. Am I wrong here or am I worrying too much?
Reminder abt climate change
@Gaynebula It feels a lot like playing a raid in an online game. Even if you have your role in fighting the monster down pat, you've still got a couple dozen other knuckleheads you're depending on.
Don't remember what set me off, something about what Millennial are killing today. But I thought "If Boomers don't want me, then why did they make me??"
Then I imagined myself in Armitage's hotpants and felt too awkward to think about it any more.
Y'all think you're Speed Racer, but you drive more like Chim-Chim.
...what if you had a unicorn made of metal or stone that knew martial arts? How would that even work? And am I reading Kill Six Billion Demons too much?
"I won't lie. It doesn't look good."
"...okay, here's the plan. There should be a fire escape down the hall. Try and use it to flank them while I keep them busy. But you NEED to be fast if this is going to work; they'll try and exploit my reload window."
"And if you hear the shooting stop... just run. Get out of here."
"Got it? Good, we'll go on the count of three. 1... 2..."
I mean, it's a CG technical marvel, of course. That whole movie is; I think Liv's hair needed it's own special program to animate right, and having all the different spider-folk in the same shot was a rendering challenge itself.
But did anyone else think "welp, everything's flying to pieces again"?
@xyzzy I do it occasionally, but mostly for signatures or something ironic like "go f*ck yourself." Outside of that kind of thing, I can't remember the last time I did.
The multiverse is replete with tales of great heroes and villains who shake the very pillars of creation.
This is NOT one of them. What is all this, anyway?
