Hooray, page 1 :)

The only bad thing about starting from the beginning of a pointless thread is that you want to talk about some of the stuff you see but it's extremely old and people will have no idea what you are talking about :(

Tha reminds me of the time I wanted to buy three smoke detectors at B&Q, and had to go through the till three times to buy one at a time.  The computer was set to charge as follows:
1 - £3.99
2 - £7.99
3 - £12.99 [sic]
And the cashier couldn't be persuaded (or had no means) to charge for them individually.

I've read of different ways to kill the Dragon but my strategy is just to keep this going in the background at work and save at intervals and upgrade my sword to the max and then hopefully kill it before my potions run out :D

Either that or just keep eating candy till I have 2-3 times more health then the Dragon...

Post by: Papersatan on 13 Sep 2013, 08:21
I think it is easier to touch your own face less than to wash/disinfect your hands more.  When I work retail in particular, I'm going to touch floors and people and all sorts of gross surfaces, instead of constantly disinfecting, I just make sure to wash my hands before I eat.  If you shower once a day, use the bathroom at least twice (I've an iron bladder), and eat three time, you are already washing your hands at least 6 times a day... unless they are actually getting dirty, like, (you touched raw meat, or poop, or you picked up dirty tissues) or you have some need to keep touching your mouth/face (like you have itchy eyes, or bite your nails), it seems like 6+ times a day of washing your hands is probably enough.

I don't get sick any more frequently than the average person, so I think my system works just fine?
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: nekowafer on 13 Sep 2013, 08:37
I don't use disinfectant after every person I touch, just before I touch my face/food/etc after touching another person or something I deem gross. But I also have some obsessive compulsive tendencies that I cant really shake that tell me to do it more often. I try to negate that by using non-antibacterial soap when I have to wash my hands a lot.

Also: I have seen someone at work use the clearly marked no-water-needed hand sanitizer to wash her hands in the sink. I don't get it.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: LTK on 13 Sep 2013, 08:50
I realise my evidence is anecdotal, but I only wash my hands when they feel exceptionally dirty, after I've cleaned up something nasty in the kitchen or the bathroom, but that's maybe once a week. I shower way more often than I wash my hands, and I haven't had any illness other than the common cold in years. (Other than that idiopathic sudden deafness thing, but what are the odds that not washing your hands makes you deaf?) Modern society does a good enough job of eliminating pathogens already, it's not like I have to worry about contracting cholera any more.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: Papersatan on 13 Sep 2013, 08:55
I'm gonna say "gross" if you are admitting you don't wash your hands after taking a shit.  A lot of hand washing is to keep others from getting sick, for instance, washing your hands after you use the bathroom...  it's one of the things you ought to be doing because you are part of a society and your practices effect the health of others.  Like getting vaccinated.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: LTK on 13 Sep 2013, 09:09
Oh yes, I forgot about public (and other people's) bathrooms. I do wash my hands coming out of those, mostly because I'm expected to. I don't think it really makes any difference, because most of us aren't doing anything that would make our excreted gut bacteria end up outside of the bathroom, are we?
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: pwhodges on 13 Sep 2013, 09:32
Excreted gut bacteria are as harmless as they come.  There are better reasons for washing your hands at that stage.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: jwhouk on 13 Sep 2013, 09:59
If it gets on your hands and you promptly down a sandwich without wearing plastic gloves, yeah, it IS going to "do something" outside of the bathroom. That's why I wash my hands after using the bathroom.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: Barmymoo on 13 Sep 2013, 10:35
I am pretty sure that someone not washing their hands after going to the toilet would be a deal-breaker with me for relationships or living together. It's incredibly unhygenic and really, WHY would you not wash your hands? Exactly how hard is it to run some water, rub your hands together with some soap and rinse them? Even if you're not doing a 20 second hospital clean, at least make a bit of an effort.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: ankhtahr on 13 Sep 2013, 11:09
To be honest, until a few years ago I was similar. Maybe not that much, but a little bit.

Now I'm washing my hands more and more. I don't like the feeling of unwashed hands. Especially in the summer, I always wash my hands, as they get sweaty very easily. Sometimes I come from the toilet, washed my hands, work on my computer for an hour, and then wash my hands again, as my hands became almost sticky. Also I like to keep my keyboards clean. And my trackball doesn't work too great with dirty hands. And then there is the trouble I have with having food stuff on my hands. There are times, when I have two slices of bread for breakfast, and that makes me wash my hands thrice. Once before sitting down, once after eating the first slice of bread (as I often have Prosciutto for breakfast), and once after eating the second slice.

Speaking of toileting habits.....I've recently been introduced to the concept of "Family Cloth".....personally, it just doesn't sound all that hygienic but does anyone else have experience with this? I have such a bizarre fascination with it.

Basically cloth toilet paper. I like the idea, but it's tough to keep up with. I tried it for a bit, but only for pee. Number 2 got regular toilet paper and all was as usual. It's a lot of laundry, but in theory, especially with a house full of women, it could save a lot of money.

I still use cloth pads though, and I love them.

It's different for guys, since you would only need it for poo. The idea is to save trees and be good for the environment and so on. But there are some amenities I will not give up, and a clean butt and poo-free laundry are two of them.

Wait hang on, do guys not ever need to wipe their penis after urinating? Surely there are sometimes drops of urine still left? I am flabbergasted at how fast my brother and I got through toilet paper when we shared a bathroom if he wasn't using it after urinating - I'm sure he used more than me!

pretty much and sometimes.  Usually I tap mine with my hand and flex my urethra muscles.  After that I am done.  No urine is ever on the outside of the head.

As for your brother well, thats a question you would have to take up with him.

I didn't quantify the amount of toilet paper we were using, to be fair. And I'm well aware that men use toilet paper to clean up after other things too - but my brother was pre-pubescent nearly all of the time that we shared a bathroom.

hehe I used to do this in college.  I don't rightly know why.

It's called token compliance.  It's because you (like automatic brain processes you, not necessarily rational thinking you) want to collect the social benifits of complying with a norm without the cost of actually complying with it. Passing one's hands quickly under running water, or even just turning on the water is a common example.  another really common one is patting one's pockets an then refusing change to a homeless person, regardless of whether your pockets contain money.

Deal with lots of homeless people here in DC.  I usually ignore them or tell them I got nothing for them.  Most (not all) homeless people I encounter are professional bums and not "on hard times" bums.

It doesn't matter if most people rationally think that providing money to beggars is a bad idea, or if these particular beggars *need* the money,  we live in a society which values generosity/caring about others and there is social utility in appearing to have those values (I'd argue that the need to defend not giving them change is actually evidence of this). Not giving them money isn't a sign that you are not these things, but having others see you give them money, or attempt to has a social reward of others thinking more highly of you.  If you start to pay attention, to yourself or to others, you will notice a strange trend of people patting a pocket, but not making eye contact or even breaking stride. They are not looking for change, they are attempting to get the benefit of complying with the norm without the cost.  Again, it's not a deliberate "I'm going to trick people into thinking I care" thing, it's a result of social pressure to conform with norms.

Another example: next time you are on crowded public transportation and someone gives up their seat for an elderly person, watch the leg muscles of the people seated around them.  Chances are someone will flex as though they were "just about to get up but you beat me to it!".  They didn't want to give up their seat, and likely would not have, but, once the cost of having to stand is taken away, they will give token compliance to the norm, and likely receive the social benefit from those around them. 


I don't want to derail this thread by making too many points, so here is a cat:

Excreted gut bacteria are as harmless as they come.  There are better reasons for washing your hands at that stage.

An enormous amount of public health work has gone into safe disposal of excreted gut bacteria. They cause a lot of trouble in the wrong places.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: pwhodges on 13 Sep 2013, 16:04
The important risk is not from normal gut bacteria, though, but from those causing sickness, such as gastroenteritis; but remember that using shared toilets where there is a risk of infection from unknown strangers, you are also at risk of infection after washing your hands, from the taps and door furniture when you leave.  If you yourself are unwell, it is of course your responsibility to take steps to avoid leaving such a trail of infection, and washing is important there (so is not giving in to the notion that "you're well enough to go to work" is sufficient justification for going in to infect all your co-workers).  My remark was too flippant as it stood, though, I agree.

At least it's not the radioactive iodine treatments she went through two years ago... you sweat that stuff out, have to wash the sheets daily, can't be close (within 8 feet) to her for more than a half hour at a time, 6 times a day tops.  And wash, wash, wash if you have to touch her.  Oh yeah, I'm the guy who transfers her to and from bed and her chair...

@Papersatan: Yeah I notice that stuff too on the train, and I revel in making people do that by giving up my seat first.  Sometimes they try to explain that they didn't see the pregnant lady just standing next to them, or the old man struggling to stand with a walker.  I see them purposely pretending not to see them or do the whole fake get up thing and its quite pathetic.  When its the "homeless" in this city, I don't give change/money, nor do I do the pat my pockets thing.  I just say "sorry pal I got nothing for you" or just plain ignore them.  Sure I've given food away but people coming up to me to "rap me a song for some change" as I am hurrying to work, or the bums who are fully capable of working but fake injuries and lay in the street rejecting food but asking for money, those people can get change or take up time from someone else but not me.  I am just glad they arnt aggressive about it like in some other cities where they follow you or try to fight you...yet.

Don't be too hard on people who look like they're "fully capable of working". Long-term unemployment fucking sucks and it saps your self-confidence and your energy until all you can do is get through each day. I'm not saying that you should give money to people begging in the street - actually I think this is a bad idea, because it simply assuages a sense of guilt without actually doing anything meaningful to help - but I do encourage supporting charities which work with people who've fallen on bad luck (and I consider debilitating drug addictions to be bad luck, even if bad choices led to that state), especially ones like The Big Issue. "Just get a job" is an attitude which shows complete ignorance of what it is like not to be able to get a job, and to watch your life crumbling and not know how to stop it.

Been there.  I'm 51, with a Ph.D. that qualifies me for very little.  I couldn't even get a job at the envelope factory, because I don't have line production experience; I don't have a CDL (Commercial Driver's license), so I can't drive a delivery vehicle or a bus.  The taxi services weren't hiring.  I don't have a mechanic's / plumber's / electrician's license, so even though I can do all those (and frequently do around my own house and for friends and our church), I can't legally get a job at it.  That left retail, and... well, I'm short, fat, bald and old.  Not gonna get hired when there are all those attractive schoolkids out there for hire.  Can't teach high school or lower without state teacher's certification which requires an Ed. degree, even though I've been teaching for about 30 years, and the area colleges aren't hiring. 

We almost lost the house. 

That probably would have pushed me over the edge, especially if I'd lost my family in the process as well.  You would have seen me on street in pretty short order. 

I know there are professional beggars, alcoholics, the mentally ill out on the streets.  I think what most people don't know is how close they are to being there themselves. 

Sorry, that wasn't really pointless.  Here's a crabby old kitty.

So there's a pickup in my town that I've seen a few times.  If you wanted to conjure a caricature of a stereotypical Deep South redneck, this vehicle, its owner, and his friends are it.  The pickup is a F250, has a lift kit, they blare country music, dress like rednecks, the girls wear Daisy Dukes (I've seen em as one girl puts her legs up on the dash), they're all drinking beer, and the icing on the cake is the 3x5' Stars and Bars that flies on a short flagpole mounted in the box.  Every time I've seen this pickup, that is the scene I've seen.  Only thing missing is the gun rack in the back window (it might be there, I haven't gotten a good look at that area).

I've been tempted to roll down my windows and crank my music volume (I have an aftermarket sound system that came with my vehicle) and play something like Ramstein or House music or some other most uncountry-like music possible to see how they'd react; and the fact that I'm driving a Toyota and have CA plates would just add to it.  But frankly, I don't feel like getting shot.

There's tons of those brodozers around here, and I'm WELL north of the Mason-Dixon. (Not as far north as what jwhouk is talking about, though.)

Although, the stars and bars aren't anywhere near as popular here. More common is a pair of 4" stacks, with the (diesel) engine massively overfueled, dumping very large, thick clouds of black smoke all over everything.

See a few of those around here, too, and every one of 'em has the stars and bars (http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9a/Confederate_Rebel_Flag.svg) either in the rear window (as a one-way visible transfer), or painted on the tailgate.  There is one with the huge flag on the bed-mounted pole.  And they're all over on the front plate holder of cars (PA only has rear plates).

So I spent the better part of the entire weekend playing Mortal Kombat on the PS3.
Let me tell you... Challenge Tower 275/300 is such a bitch it's ridiculous.  3 Goro's with one life meter, with Ermac.
That was about 3 hours of getting my ass handed to me... and another 2-3 hours trying to practice his combos.

Still.. pretty awesome game :)

Presumably the same ones who got all bent out of shape when an American-born US citizen sang "God Bless America" at the 2013 MLB All-Star game. (http://publicshaming.tumblr.com/post/55715208108/baseball-fans-super-angry-hispanic-american-superstar)I've met plenty of people who think you have to be white to be a Real Australian, so I doubt those tweets are anything other than what they seem.

Yeah, it's really gross. It's so blatantly obvious that when people talk about "immigrants" here that they mean "middle-eastern looking" people; immigration not required. Similarly when other Swedes internalize those attitudes as "us immigrants". Dude, you were born here.

Always it gets back to scary brown people. I've literally heard "it makes you scared of being around them" recently in person. No, actually, it doesn't. It makes your xenophobic ass scared of being around 'them'. I have the basic thinking skills to not consider some random brown person as representative of everyone else.

If anything it makes me a whole lot more concerned being around YOU. The fearmongering far-right doesn't exactly have an amazing record of being non-transphobic.

@ Akima and LTK
I don't consider myself sheltered (far from it) but I usually don't encounter stuff like that in real life.  Maybe its because my ancestors are West European and I don't encounter racism all that often.  However, on the internet plenty of people will say stuff like that just to get a rise out of people and not actually meaning it.  I can't say the same for Oz though.

and not actually meaning it.

~Intent is magic~

I don't give a shit about them personally or their intentions, they still perpetuate very harmful ideas. Also most people like that, with such an utter disregard of that fact, actually are racist/transphobic/homophobic/etc. on some level; it's just not something they're very open about.

If someone thinks it is ok to "just say stuff like that" as a joke, or to get a rise out of people, you are racist as fuck and people are right to call you on it. 

"I didn't mean it, look how upset you got, haha" is a weak ass defense and if you buy it you are a moron.  Why, in a country where people are still  beaten  (http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20130418/melrose/man-beaten-anti-muslim-attack-outside-bronx-applebees-nypd-says),  shot (http://news.yahoo.com/ferrell-kerrick-police-unarmed-shooting-charlotte-191520307.html),  not offered jobs (http://www.techyville.com/2012/11/news/unemployed-black-woman-pretends-to-be-white-job-offers-suddenly-skyrocket/),  not offered housing  (http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/press/press_releases_media_advisories/2013/HUDNo.13-091), and  stopped  (http://www.nyclu.org/node/1598)and  searched (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/12/us/racial-profiling-at-boston-airport-officials-say.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0) based on the color of their skin, would it be ok to try an get a rise out of people by 'pretending' to be racist?

The only people I know who could think that was ok to do, or to tolerate, are people who are racists and think that racism is "not a real problem".  Why would it being trolling, or hyperbole make it any less terrible? How would that make it less racist? What that reads like to me is "oh, it's not so bad, these are people who wouldn't admit they were racist in real life."   Those are the worst kind of racists, because they get put in charge of things that matter.  At least when someone is a KKK wizard he isn't (usually) going to be made police chief, or a TSA guard, or a teacher.

Well, apparently it remains pointless to try to convince white moderates that racism still exists and is harmful, and that it is not ok just just give people a pass because they are "otherwise nice people" and "didn't mean it like that" and "things are not so bad, and pointing out all this racism just makes there be conflict"

A lot of it was deliberate playing down the dangers combined with a small level of sheer ignorance despite the examples of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

It took a long time before the reality of Nuclear War finally sank into the psyche of the general public, and even then a lot of people preferred to adopt the 'Ostrich Mode' when it came to it.

Also you might want to go into settings and turn numbers and particles off.

I assume you mean you want to buy whatever would optimize your ROI? For example, a factory produces four times as many cookies as a mine. I think it therefore stands to reason that as long as a mine is cheaper than 1/4 of the prize of a factory (minus some epsilon to account for the increase in prize of every subsequent min), you should buy the mine. Or am I thinking too simple here?

Also, thanks for the hint about the effects.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: snalin on 18 Sep 2013, 02:20
It's a bit simplistic - as there's a different amount of x2-upgrades for every building, so investing in more than the absolute minimum of say farms, factories and mines will lead to a slower upgrade path. Also, you might catch up in the long run if you go a bit slower early on due to waiting for higher level things rather than buying several of the low level buildings.

See: this post.

According to someone else, about a minute, but I didn't keep count myself.

I cheated and checked. You have to click five times within a third of a second. Good luck!

(alt+shift+num lock on windows activates a mode which lets you double click with numpad +. Turn it off again with the same combo, also turning it off sounds crazy)

For some reason the title of this thread makes me feel uncomfortable whenever I read it.

Probably because the "wut" is annoying as hell and you can't change it to be correct. You just have to stare at it, losing braincells from stupidity.

Think of it as one of Marten's incoherent responses to complete stupidity - which is what this thread is largely about.

The joke is that the person making the image hasn't watched the Disney channel since probably around 2003 or so and as such does not recognize any of the many successful shows that have since aired on that network. Two of those in the image have given rise to incredibly popular pop singers who I would imagine the person also deems as "garbage" and "not real music."

I guess the real joke here, the one that is deeper than just the "these shows aren't the Disney of my youth" one, is that the person has effectively become like their parents, or older cousins, who thought that Even Stevens and Kim Possible and N*Sync and the Britney Spears were all just garbage and not a product of the real Disney.

Holy wow, they fly while carrying their young? I always thought that bats were amateur flyers compared to most birds, given their shorter evolutionary history, but I don't know of any bird that carries their young with them while in the air! Having claws on your wings must really help with that.

but if it's electrical then its a power sword (http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Power_sword#.Uj-zgRBn3rQ) (or power kopis in this case!)

Though I like chainsword better.  Could have both with the frost blade (http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Frost_Blade#.Uj-z9RBn3rQ) I suppose.

She's pretty. I can't get into GTA 5.. you can't just start random police brawls.. you'll die in like a minute. The UI is mostly a mystery as hardly anything is explained, most of the missions so far are boring and why in the hell does the menu take 30 seconds to load? I thought that was part of the 8GB+ install that took 30 minutes to complete, 10 MB at a time.

"Golden Dawn" is a horribly generic name anyway. :D
It is (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Dawn_(disambiguation)). My first thought on reading the name was of the hermetic order (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hermetic_Order_of_the_Golden_Dawn). Why do I know about an obscure club of loopy British people? Because Sax Rohmer, the notorious "Yellow Peril" author was (or claimed to be) a member, and I've read, and written, a good deal about a racist genre in media that remains popular to this day. In an amusing little irony, Sax Rohmer died in 1959 of the "Asian Flu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Influenza_A_virus_subtype_H2N2#Asian_flu)", a pandemic that originated in China...

I was shooting with one hand and the thing I was shooting was in my other hand (and I don't have the steadiest hands). I usually don't do that, but...come on. Also if it was in landscape mode, you wouldn't see the entire length of the chain unless I was farther away.

Edit: Honestly, I'm kind of annoyed YouTube doesn't have a player option for portrait videos yet, where it doesn't just jam it in the middle of a landscape video player.

But when they create extended terminology, it gets worse...

"vertical envelopment" = parachute drop
"target rich environment" = we're surrounded and/or heavily outnumbered
"inadvertent collateral damage" = we B-52'd the entire village.

*nitpick*
it can be either.  Nowadays,  it is usually by helicopter... but:
"A tactical maneuver in which troops, either air-dropped (parachute) or air-landed (helicopter), attack the rear and flanks of a force, in effect cutting off or encircling the force."
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: GarandMarine on 26 Sep 2013, 19:40
The term "Airborne Assault" is the correct one for parachuting attacks.

Vertical envelopment is DIRECTLY linked to heliborne assault per the original document on heliborne assault Marine Corps manual Phib-31. That definition from the free dictionary is also shaky at best Grog.

one of my Marine SSgts has a video of one of his squad waking up with one of those on his chest.
it's all fun and games and screams
until
one of the ohter Marines sees it, flips out, and starts crushing the spider with a rifle butt.
full on swinging.  not jabbing.
oh yeah.

All I know is what they told us in training. Which is they're dangerous and we're to terminate them with extreme prejudice. Information covered included that they do not have venom, but instead apparently carry a natural pain killer (the types found in Iraq and Afghanistan any way). I can also confirm with various Marines and soldiers that orders were issued under the ROE that those armed with a sidearm could use it to engage a camel spider, and were encouraged to do so.

They also get bigger then that wiki article would have you believe.

They can in fact do pretty solid damage. Anything causing an abscess is not to be trifled with.


For the record I have worked extensively for years to attempt to overcome my arachnophobia. I have let three different species of tarantula walk on me, and even given one "pets". I have researched spiders. I have watched video, I have interacted with them. I still hate them and their kind with every fiber of my being while acknowledging their place in surrounding ecosystem.

Re: Philosoraptor:

Ah, but what if each new life is like being continually reincarnated to do everything correctly to live the longest? You reach a checkpoint, you run, you trip and die, you are reborn as someone else, you try again, you get past, it feels like something that happened to you but that you know did not, and the cycle repeats.

Perhaps that's not only Deja Vu. Perhaps you are experiencing the lives of the dead. Perhaps it's even proof of a linear timeline which lacks a future. Maybe all predictions are past selves attempting to aim for the optimal result (?).

What if even those who make the stupid decision to drive 4 times over the legal blood alcohol limit had lived several times over, and what they experience as Deja Vu is really the subtle skip in the beats of the ever-moving timeline.

This could also explain the ability to dream of things you could never feel. (e.g. the man born without legs feels pain in his absent limbs). Maybe past selves have lived in alternate realities with subtle differences, and when you dream, they get to live their lives, or you get to see them living theirs.

Ahhh, philosoraptor.

How did they know it was a camel spider bite if the soldier only noticed he'd been bitten after he'd woken up?

This could also explain the ability to dream of things you could never feel. (e.g. the man born without legs feels pain in his absent limbs).
As far as I know, phantom limbs can only cause pain if the person had experienced pain in those limbs while they existed. Regardless, even if you cannot feel something from an external source, you can still imagine and dream of those sensations. A man born without legs will still have legs in his somatosensory map of his body.

Faced with danger, or any kind of task that involves risk of death, a yeti will save its life up to that point and then proceed with all due caution, yet in the comfortable knowledge that, should everything go pancake shaped, it will wake up at the point where it saved itself wit, and this is the important part, knowledge of the events which have just happened but which will not not happen because it's not going to be such a damn fool next time.

So, Loki, how long did you think it would take?

They can in fact do pretty solid damage. Anything causing an abscess is not to be trifled with.
How did they know it was a camel spider bite if the soldier only noticed he'd been bitten after he'd woken up?


They can compare it to other camel spider bites received in theater. Not like the Docs haven't seen them before.

I drank mare's blood on the run when I rode with the Great Khan On the frozen Mongol steppe while at his height I's a White Guard, I's a Red Guard, I's the Tsar's own palace horse guard When Romanov was murdered in the night, ...On hire from Swiss or Sweden, be me Christian, be me Heathen, the devil to the saber I shall put, with a crack flanking manuver I'm an Uhlan alles uber, striking terror in to regiment of foot.

Hussars are awesome (they not only wore wings, but also exotic animal pelts, such as leopard and lion).  They pretty much set the standard for post-Renaissance cavalry in Europe.

Was trying to find that picture of impractical female armor where the arrows hit her in the chest to post under the Hussar pictures but couldn't find it.  Wonder what festival it is.

"Boobplate" is unnecessary.  Unless she is very well endowed, a woman can comfortably wear a normal/historical breastplate.  For example, here's a woman reenactor wearing her armor (she jousts, also):

And now some Kipling.


THE 'eathen in 'is blindness bows down to wood an' stone;
'E don't obey no orders unless they is ‘is own;
'E keeps 'is side-arms awful: 'e leaves 'em all about,
An' then comes up the Regiment an' pokes the 'eathen out.

   1


4
All along o' dirtiness, all along o' mess
All along o' doin' things rather-more-or-less
All along of abby-nay, kul an' hazar-ho,
Mind you keep your rifle an' yourself jus' so!

   


8
The young recruit is 'aughty - 'e draf's from Gawd knows where;
They bid 'im show 'is stockin's an' lay 'is mattress square;
‘E calls it bloomin' nonsense - 'e doesn't know no more -
An' then up comes 'is Company an kicks 'im round the floor !

   


12
The young recruit is 'ammered - 'e takes it very hard;
'E 'angs 'is 'ead an' mutters - 'e sulks about the yard;
'E talks o' "cruel tyrants" which 'e'll swing for by-an-by,
An 'the others 'ears an' mocks 'im, an' the boy goes orf to cry.

   


16
The young recruit is silly - 'e thinks o' suicide.
‘Es lost 'is gutter-devil; 'e 'asn't got 'is pride;
But day by day they kicks 'im, which 'elps 'im on a bit,
Till 'e finds 'isself one mornin' with a full an' proper kit.

   


20
Gettin' clear o’ dirtiness, gettin' done with mess,
Gettin' shut o' doin' things rather-more-or-less;
Not so fond of abby-nay, kul, nor hazar-ho
Learns to keep 'is rifle 'an 'isself jus' so !

   


24
The young recruit is 'appy - 'e throws a chest to suit;
You see 'im grow mustaches; you 'ear 'im slap 'is boot.
'E learns to drop the "bloodies" from every word ‘e slings
An' 'e shows an 'ealthy brisket when 'e strips for bars an' rings.

   


28
The cruel-tyrant-sergeants they watch 'im 'arf a year;
They watch 'im with 'is comrades, they watch 'im with 'is beer;
They watch 'im with the women at the regimental dance,
And the cruel-tyrant-sergeants send 'is name along for Lance.

   


32
An' now 'e's 'arf o' nothin', an' all a private yet,
‘Is room they up an' rags 'im to see what they will get.
They rags 'im low an' cunnin', each dirty trick they can,
But 'e learns to sweat 'is temper an' 'e learns to sweat 'is man.

   


36
An', last, a Colour-Sergeant, as such to be obeyed,
'E schools 'is men at cricket, 'e tells 'em on parade;
They sees 'im quick an' 'andy, uncommon set an' smart,
An' so 'e talks to orficers which 'ave the Core at 'eart.

   


40
'E learns to do 'is watchin' without it showin' plain;
'E learns to save a dummy, an' shove 'im straight again;
'E learns to check a ranker that's buyin' leave to shirk;
An' 'e learns to make men like 'im so they'll learn to like their work.

   


44
An' when it comes to marchin' he'll see their socks are right,
An' when it comes to action 'e shows 'em how to sight.
'E knows their ways of thinkin' and just what's in their mind.
'E knows when they are takin' on an' when they've fell be'ind.

   


48
'E knows each talkin' corp'ral that leads a squad astray;
'E feels 'is innards 'eavin', 'is bowels givin' way;
'E sees the blue-white faces all tryin' 'ard to grin,
An' 'e stands an' waits an' suffers till it's time to cap 'em in.

   


52
An' now the hugly bullets come peckin' through the dust,
An' no one wants to face 'em, but every beggar must;
So, like a man in irons, which isn't glad to go,
They moves 'em off by companies uncommon stiff an' slow.

   


56
Of all 'is five years' schoolin' they don't remember much
Excep' the not retreatin', the step an' keepin' touch.
It looks like teachin' wasted when they duck an' spread an' 'op -
But if 'e 'adn't learned 'em they'd be all about the shop.

   


60
An' now it's 'Oo goes backward? " an' now it's " 'Oo comes on?
An’ now it's Get the doolies," an' now the Captain's gone;
An' now it's bloody murder, but all the while they 'ear
'Is voice, the same as barrick-drill, a-shepherdin' the rear.

   


64
E's just as sick as they are, 'is 'eart is like to split,
But 'e works 'em, works 'em, works 'em till he feels 'em take the bit;
The rest is 'oldin' steady till the watchful bugles play,
An' 'e lifts 'em, lifts 'em, lifts 'em through the charge that wins the day!

   


68
The 'eathen in 'is blindness bows down to wood an' stone;
'E don't obey no orders unless they is 'is own.
The 'eathen in 'is blindness must end where 'e began,
But the backbone of the Army is the Non-commissioned Man !

   


72
Keep away from dirtiness - keep away from mess,
Don't get into doin' things rather-more-or-less
Let's ha' done with abby-nay, kul, and hazar-ho;
Mind you keep your rifle an' yourself jus' so !

I know that the wizard thing is a common joke on /tg/ and some other places. Don't know where it originated.

While I don't really mind not contributing some images I have to this thread, would you mind explaining a bit what you mean, May,  by
Please can you stop the Jesus memes?

May requesting to stop with the images is fair I think. Sorry about the confusion.

Can we get mods ruling? I see nothing wrong with it.. I think they are funny. Personally, I think it's like telling people to stop the cat pictures because they hate cats. It just seems like being overly sensitive about comedy... perhaps a compromise of putting them in spoilers? Also.. letting me know how to use spoilers? There isn't a button I can see for it.. unless it's something like spoiler=<text> in brackets and you put the image between the tags?
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: Method of Madness on 02 Oct 2013, 05:17
[spoiler ]text or image[/spoiler] without that space there, obviously. And it's not that there's anything inherently wrong with those pictures, but if anything makes someone else uncomfortable, why would that not be enough to a decent person? Spoiler tags seem a fair compromise as long as they're marked "Jesus", but I haven't brought that to the rest of the mods, so this is not an official decision.

Word of advice though, maybe don't call people overly sensitive because something they hold dear is mocked and they don't like it.

The reason I said what I said was because if I don't like something or find it offensive, I just don't look at it or move past it. Maybe other people have different thoughts, but I assumed that is what other people were like :/  I'll do the spoiler thing.

It's not hard; if you are member of a community, and another member asks you not to do something because it offends them, you stop it and move on.  I am not going to provide specific rules for avoiding every possible upset - just take note when you become aware or are made aware of issues.  As another instance, there is someone here who finds spiders to be a trigger; I would avoid posting an image of a spider here without a warning because of that - but I'm not going to make it a rule, because it's just part of getting along (and now you know about it too).

But the Jesus pictures, like most manufactured memes, are IMO just not really funny in any case.

Sorry I didn't reply sooner, I've had a busy day. I asked you to stop because the frequency and number of jokes about Jesus were making me uncomfortable. I realise that I'm in a minority as an active Christian but the members of the forum who are trans are also in a minority and it wouldn't be considered acceptable to make jokes about being trans, or racial jokes etc etc. Some jokes about religion are funny (the joke about the man who refused two boats and a helicopter rescue in a flood before drowning is one of my favourites) but the only humour in those images comes from the fact that they're mocking Christ.

It's not meant to be censorship, and I don't usually comment on the occasional image that makes me uncomfortable, but it was quite a lot in quick succession.

It took me a second, but that was actually the very first episode I ever saw of that show, so...

Goddamnit GM. <3

Also I would like to remind the viewers that, as impressive (and attractive, arousing, etc.) I and presumably you all find that half-and-half image...and it *is* impressive, what I'm about to say doesn't take that away... but they presumably had access to some distinct professionals. Lighting, photography, makeup, model, and image-manipulation (Photoshop etc.) all come together to answer your questions as to the how.

Now I'm inclined to say that they used quite a bit of Photoshop there at the end to intensify the difference between the halves, but you *can* do wonders if you slather enough layers of makeup on, and spend enough time with someone tweezering your face.

I never seem to be able to use depilatory cream on my face or neck very successfully. Either it doesn't really affect the hair, or I chemical burn myself.

Enough points, onward thread!

I tried depilatory cream once while I was in the military, shaving every day was a pain and fucking up my face so I looked for alternate options. My proud, rugged, and manly facial hair resisted the laughable attempts of the cosmetics to assail it.

Post by: Carl-E on 05 Oct 2013, 09:36
Yeah, to make it weak enough to not destroy the majority of skin types, it's not effective on very tough hair.  Unless you leave it on for a very long time.  Then it irritates the skin anyway...

I hate shaving, though, so I tried it when I was younger.  It was effective on some parts, not on others. 

I grew a beard instead.

The modern electric shavers do the trick, but I try to keep it stubble instead of baby face or dwarf beardling.  I just use a mustache trimmer.

That's too bad, because a small combustion engine is currently the only way you can power one of those things without tethering.

Also, whipper-snippers is a lovely, evocative name for a gas-powered weed trimmer.

@Kyomi:
Cassandra was a princess of troy.  The god Apollo gave her the ability to see the future. She predicted that bad things would happen because of Paris her brother, their parents sent him away to grow up.  Cassandra spurred Apollo's advances so he cursed her.  Making it so that no one would believe her.  She predicted Paris and Helen would cause the fall of Troy but no one believed her.

I did let my little sister "play", as in, give her the second controller and "act" as if I was player two (worked very well with Donkey Kong Country). Also worked with my best friend.

Some of those things I plan on doing because I want to (getting a job, going to said job, and getting married, watching TV). Some of those (follow fashion, acting normal, walking on the pavement) I'll do occasionally, but less often than not, really. The only things I feel compelled to do are obeying the law (well, usually) and saving for old age (which I really haven't started doing yet because I have no income, being a student and all).

I don't know if I'd consider myself entirely free, but I feel like something that takes the other extreme like that the mindset in that image are not as harmful as the system they protest against (a system that the image exaggerates to an unnecessary degree), but harmful nonetheless.

(http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/thoughtful-animal/files/2013/09/EagleDeer2-e1380052726807.jpg)

That's a terrible attack vector, normally eagles will strike from behind like that, but sink their talons into the region of spine we call the "Cervical vertebrae" on humans. This area of the skull is weak and squishy so the eagle gains two potential kill blows by striking in that region, either an immediate nervous system kill or his talons will continue to penetrate through to the brain. For more alpine animals such as mountain goats and big horn sheep (in North America) the eagles will instead strike at the center of gravity while the target is in a precarious position (both species regularly scale nearly sheer rock faces and cliffs) letting gravity do the work of actually killing the prey.

Eagles: Not an animal to fuck with.

OK, try this thread (http://www.landoverbaptist.net/showthread.php?t=88288), which starts with the words on that poster, followed by the comment:

Plain and simple. Any attempts to put homosexuality out of the equation yields weird results, like a huge six mile wide asteroid impacted 65 million years ago. This is similar to how you get weird results (as insanely large numbers) in mathematics if you divide anything by zero (which is a sign that you did something wrong).

Looking at the sites that this image is on, it's not clear whether it is a parody or not.  I tend towards parody, because most genuine posters of that sort that I've seen make a point of advertising the church they're from.

What makes an èrhú (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erhu) an "ethnic" instrument? If a Western folk-rock band included a violin in their line-up, would you describe that as an "ethnic" instrument? If not, why not? This is essentially a less malign version of the attitude that leads racists in Australia to describe Australians like me as "ethnics".

I have it from a reliable source that the difference between a violin and a fiddle is the music you are playing with it (if it is music from the 'respected white tradition, it is a violin...)

"Ethnic" means "not a part of white culture".  Using the word to describe contributions from non-white-western cultures is a form of othering.  The only thing the word does is stress that this item is 'weird' or 'different' because it is not from white culture.

Most of the things which a Chinese person might very well label as "ethnically Scandinavian instruments" would more likely just be called "traditional" or "folk", so yeah. Very different approaches to the same kinds of situations depending on if it's "us" or "them".

We climbed so far up our own assholes as a species that we cannot tell the difference between satire and reality, sometimes. The dinosaur thing, well, it can go either way, which is a sure sign that something needs to change. Attitudes about science, for instance.

"Ethnic" sounds ... problematic. Maybe "old" or "not often seen, these days" or something would be more accurate.

Something stupid:

"Ethnic" means "not a part of white culture".
Just so. The slightly more up-market version is to refer to "World Music".

"Ethnic" sounds ... problematic. Maybe "old" or "not often seen, these days" or something would be more accurate.
Old? The erhu and the violin both evolved from the same Central Asian bowed stringed instruments, so it is hard to decide which is older, assuming either is. And not often seen these days? In Europe or the USA maybe, but instruments like pipa, dizi, erhu, guzheng, yangqin etc. are commonplace in Chinese classical music, opera, movie soundtracks, popular music, metal bands (see above) and even in the hands of street-musicians busking on metro stations.

All of the above-mentioned instruments:

Classical pipa? We've got that covered:

I apologize for the horrible wording in my last post, I didn't mean to offend anyone. I couldn't find the right word to describe what I was thinking and "ethnic" kept coming up. "Traditional" would of been a better word. I haven't seen it used outside of Asian  music and I thought "ethnic" meant something like instruments that came from <country>.

Basically I was trying to say that I really liked the way they used their traditional instruments in that song.  See Graveworm - Fear of the Dark for another example (bagpipe solo in a metal song ftw).


Also, that picture is awesome.. I'm watching it and imagining that guy making "wooshing" noises :)

I know you had no ill intent, and I apologise for "picking on you" a bit, but "ethnic" carries a lot of baggage in contexts like "ethnic music", "ethnic food" etc.

On the other hand, erhu is awesome, and welcome to the admirers' club! No instrument weeps like the erhu. Except when it doesn't:
BTW, for those who do not know, erhu (http://translate.google.com.au/?hl=en&tab=wT#auto/en/%E4%BA%8C%E8%83%A1) (二胡 èrhú) is pronounced, roughly, "are-who" not "err-who".

Apropos of not much, I have a copy of this book, bought when it was first published.  It has the distinction of the only book I have ever bought that came with uncut pages; the torn edges of the pages (opened with a paper knife) give it a feeling that no other book of mine has.  But my point in mentioning it is that the main bulk of it is overwhelmingly taken up with instruments that are not part of the western classical music tradition.

A typical page, opened at random, contains the entries (only summarised here):

Hornprinzipal (an organ stop)
Hornwerk (an organ whose pipes all sound simultaneously, as a signal calling to worship)
Horologium (a wheel with bells on, which tinkle when it is rotated)
Hörpauke, Hörpaigge (variant of Heerpauke: a kettledrum, or an organ stop imitating a drum)
Hosanna (a small carillon patented in France in 1898)
Ho sheng (see Ho: a small sheng of China, with 13 pipes)
Hourglass drum (a drum smaller in the middle than at the ends, found in Asia, E. Africa, Melanesia)
Hpa si (see Ka si: Burmese bronze kettle gong, with four pairs of ornamental frogs - also Kaun chet)
Hruozza (Cruit; glossed in 10th c. as Sambuca)
Hsiang ch'ih (percussion stick of china made of redwood; in N. China, used at funerals)
Hsiang pan (percussion plaque of China, made of thick brass)
Hsiao (end-blown flute of China; full name Feng huang hsiao, modern version is Tung hsiao)
Hsiao ku (small frame drum of China, played with a knobbed withy)
Hsiao tse (= Ko ling)
Hsien tse (= San hsien)
Hsing erb (Chinese cymbals; in N. China, almost hemispherical in shape)
Hsing lung sheng (Chinese term for organ, introduced from the West by Kublai Khan)
Hsiian (ovoid globular flute of China, known since the Shang period, of bone, clay or porcelain)


It's the kind of book you can get lost in for hours following cross-references.

The word "ethnic" does not appear (of course!).  The preface says: "...this dictionary in incomplete.  [...] listed well over five thousand books and papers on non-European and folk instruments alone;".

That young lady is very talented indeed! I have always enjoyed the Ehru, especially it's more "somber" pieces. I have never in fact heard a fast piece for it before. Very impressive.

I would challenge your statement that no inturment can weep like the ehru can, the violin cries with a lot of emotion.

The piano too can have a powerful voice.

I actually really enjoy instruments that people don't expect being sad's mourning cries.

I was looking for sad pipe music and got lost. I found this cross over set featuring traditional Chinese instruments and the pipes of all things.

Good stuff that is.

Now some pipes.


And to bring you all down from what some of you heathens likely think of as torture of a cat, here's my favorite relaxation instrument. The Shakuhachi is a flute of Japanese origin.

This has alt text, which is supposed to be an alternative for the use of the visually impaired, describing the image instead of displaying it:

(http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/adam_and_eve.png)

[img alt=Abel and Steve would've been fine! I like Steve!]

However, what you are looking for is an image title attribute.  SMF doesn't support this; but some browsers may display the alt attribute on a hover if no title is present (my Opera does not).

This is how it looks in html (you can't do this - sorry actually, you can):

Admins can do anything (there is no set of permissions for admins), though html can be turned off even for admins.  Otherwise, BBCode is either allowed or not, with no distinctions between different levels of member.

However, it seems I was feeling generous when I went through the settings after becoming admin, because it turns out that the html tag is allowed.  You can't use html on its own - you have to put the [html]...[/html] tags round it.  Only a few html tags are allowed, though, as otherwise the potential for users' own html to break the page created by the forum is too great:

Code: [Select]
<b>, <u>, <i>, <s>, <em>, <ins>, <del>
<a href="">
<img src="" alt="" title="" />
<br />,<hr />
<pre>,<blockquote>

(Note that just listing those without the code tags around them broke the layout comprehensively!)

There's virtually nothing there that can't be done in straight BBCode - the additional attributes of img is the biggest reason to use this, I think.  The tag attributes in that list are not the only ones allowed, though.



Ooh!  I've just realised that you can do this with straight BBCode anyway, using the [abbr] or [acronym] tag (they're the same) :)

(http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/adam_and_eve.png)

I wasted a decent portion of my teenage years playing the Game Boy Color version of Tetris... there were some tricks on that version that made the game slightly easier so I could play indefinitely, with even the fastest speed it went to being rather easy (it stopped speeding up at level 30. I think the farthest I got before getting too bored or tired to continue was level 80).

I'd ask for the traditional battle ready wide dimensions as opposed to the thinned down ceremonial blade style.

Though honestly if I'm going to have a sword commissioned for me... I'll be spending more money then I even want to think about and making a trip to the remaining Japanese sword making clans to have a Katana fitted to my hand and body, then spend a couple years with a Kenjutsu master to make sure I'm not an insult to the blade's spirit.

That's it. I'm sick of all this "Masterwork Bastard Sword" bullshit that's going on in the d20 system right now. Katanas deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.
I should know what I'm talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine katana in Japan for 2,400,000 Yen (that's about $20,000) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even cut slabs of solid steel with my katana.
Japanese smiths spend years working on a single katana and fold it up to a million times to produce the finest blades known to mankind.
Katanas are thrice as sharp as European swords and thrice as hard for that matter too. Anything a longsword can cut through, a katana can cut through better. I'm pretty sure a katana could easily bisect a knight wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash.
Ever wonder why medieval Europe never bothered conquering Japan? That's right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Samurai and their katanas of destruction. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the katanas first because their killing power was feared and respected.

Not familiar with the term "weeaboo" but from casual research it appears to be an insult. That would be unwelcome.

Western person that fetishizes Japanese culture and history, without really understanding it. The joke is of course that traditional katanas, while masterworks, were still no better than the contemporary or earlier mass produced western arms, as Japanese forgers only had pig iron to work with - not quality steel. The mythic fixation on katanas in western culture is a reflection of the higher status of the sword in Japanese culture compared to contemporary European culture, rather than a reflection of quality.

A good, western arming sword (one handled sword, D&D "longsword" (D&D is wrong about what a longsword is)) has a quality of brutal honesty to it that many of the backswords (the sabres and katanas and what have you) of the world lack. There's no attempt at art in an arming sword, it's just a weapon. I've got one of these, and I'd take it over any katana:

(http://www.armourclass.co.uk/Data/Gfx/Big-Med-Bat-Long.jpg)


According to wikipedia, the katanas are also short - 60–73 cm or 25-29 inches blade length for a two-handled sword. Compared to the ~75 cm of a one handled arming sword. I suspect it's simply due to said lower quality steel causing higher weight - so you'd need to keep the blades shorter to maintain a weight that's still effective in combat. The curved blade of the katana (and the saber and any other curved sword) is also probably due to their wielders fighting less armored opponents than the 11th century wielders of the sword above. Curved blades gives a bigger cutting edge (and thus deeper cuts) than the above sword, but have a much weaker stab, and are less effective at piercing mail or other armor.

The saber is a very popular weapon world wide... and that Dao and the Marine Corps saber are in fact probably related on some level. The curved swords of the Middle East and later the Dao family were influenced by contact between those two regions (notably under the rule of the Mongol empire, but also just normal trade) and the European saber rose from the Middle Eastern scimitar, in particular the Mameluke sword. A variant of which our officers still carry. (The original being earned during the Tripoli campaign by Lieutenant Presley O'Bannon after the fall of Tripoli to a detachment of Marines and allied local forces, during the Battle of Durna, in 1805, this was the first fortress of the old world to be put under American colors in victory.)

As to Jace, I'm not sure what the hell he's talking about honestly. I assume a cat walked onto his keyboard or something.

For some interesting comparative work... GET ON MY QUARTERDECK and form up for mail call!



Now I have some issues with that particular comparison and think it could actively be better done, but the bottom line is there is no such thing as an ubersword. In the hands of a bumbling idiot a Katana or Broadsword is no more effective then or dangerous then anything else. (I mean it's still a big chunk of sharp steel, but unless you know what you're doing any sword is surprisingly hard to use). One "myth" that I think Jace was attempting to bring up was that Marines in the Pacific actively shot sword armed Japanese officers and NCOs as a priority. That's true. Do you want to get into close combat with a nutcase swinging a sword? I sure as shit don't.

As for my personal tastes in swords, seeing as I don't have the need to waste my time fantasizing about carrying a sword into battle I stick with my preferred backswords of their varying breeds world wide, which I simply prefer because I like them better. It's not a matter of East or West being better, I just enjoy the visual appeal and slashing focus on the weapons more. (Doesn't hurt that I trained with the Marine saber a little). In particular I enjoy the craftsmanship inherent in the Katana, and I enjoy owning tools and weapons of pedigree (My M1 Garand rifle was specifically selected because it came out of Springfield Armory for example). As an amateur historian owning historical artifacts, and items from families that have been doing certain trades for centuries (if not longer in many cases) has a distinct appeal. I also believing in knowing how to use what I own. When I picked up a rapier I studied Capo Ferro (the Italian school of Rapier fencing), when I picked up a cutlass I studied the traditional Marine Corps manual on Cutlass fencing it is a very short manual, and quite simple, which befits the cutlass itself.) So it stands to reason when I get my Bastard I'll study with an ARMA chapter, and a Katana a Kenjutsu or Iaido master. Learning the styles associated with the weapons, and the history of the weapons themselves is half the fun!

It's a lot easier with collecting guns though. I already know how to shoot so it's not like I need to relearn it every time I pick up something new at the local gun store.

Side thought. If you forced me to carry a sword into the field today, I know exactly what I'd select based on modern combat requirements, and my own field and training experience. A machete. It's light, durable, more then compact enough to delivery powerful blows on unarmored or soft armored targets in close quarters, and outside of active fighting it's a field utility tool, which gives it double value for it's actual weight.

(http://www.ww2supply.com/fotos/4671-03.JPG)

Force me (and you would have to force me) to add a "traditional" sword to my kit (and watch me to ensure I don't ditch the thing in my vehicle or foot locker the second whoever's making me haul it around and I'd select a cutlass for similar reasons as above. I'm not worried about armor. I am worried about powerful, simple strikes at close quarters, and the cutlass was made for such work. Like me ol'Irish gran said "A rapier may be witty, but a cutlass makes'em gutless"

Oddly enough the USMC swords are based off Mameluke swords because of their actions in Tripoli in the early 1800s and has become tradition in the USMC. As to where the Mameluke's got it...

Point of contention, this is both correct and wrong. The USMC officer's sword is a Mameluke style scimitar/saber. The USMC NCO Saber (M1859 and it's two variants forward) is based on the M1850 Foot Officer's Saber. (U.S. Army) HOWEVER like I said about, the Mameluke sword and similar styles of backsword were highly influential on the development of the European saber, which the M1850 was a classic example of, if slightly shortened for infantry work as it was designed for infantry as opposed to cavarlymen. So while it is not a direct influence like the Marine Officer's scimitar above, the general influence over time means the NCO Saber also owes much to the Mameluke scimitar.

M1850:

Mulan is one of the few "Disney princess" who was not looking for a man as part of the main plot (cinderella, sleeping beauty, even Jasmine was) and I think its one of the reasons (among others) why I liked that movie.  It was moving away from that standard "need a man to rescue me from blah blah blah".  Favorite Disney princess will always be Princes Leia.  Defeating the empire was her goal.  Hell her first few on screen moments before you find out her name is smuggling plans and shooting a soldier.  Then openly defiant to the emperors right hand man/executioner! Getting the Han-some rogue was just a bonus.  Though I think I'll always identify with Luke from that series (which the writers intended I believe).

Besides Mulan she's (Leia) also the only Disney Princess any daughter of mine will be encouraged to look to as a role model. Great you found a pair of glittery heels, save China or lead an insurrection against an over powering evil empire then I'll be impressed.

Of course, every time I don't follow up a viewing of Mulan with the historical legend of the same, I will feel a slight pressure in the back of my head, as if Akima is chiding me from a very long way away :P

Don't forget about Tiana! (princess and the frog)
She's the only disney princess with a career path in mind throughout the story, and she puts a huge emphasis on achieving her goals through commitment and hard work. Even when she falls in love she still gets her restaurant.

I enjoyed it - the plot is slightly less demeaning than some of the older ones and although there were stereotypes in evidence, I don't think (although I could be wrong) that it was particularly racist when it very easily could have been.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: LeeC on 23 Oct 2013, 11:41
Wait, Princess and the frog was racist?  A workaholic woman who has a dream of owning her own restaurant and a foreign lazy prince gold digger?   All with a new orleans vibe complete with a shadow man voodoo villain?

Thought it was a nice touch that Tatiana's father was a soldier from WW1.  Tells you around what time the story takes place (1930s).

Lee, I can't work out whether you're being sarcastic or not. I'm pretty sure that the USA racial stereotypes are different from the UK ones - if only because our ethnic diversity is different - so maybe I just don't recognise problematic references. I freely admit to being blinded by my own privilege at times.

Sorry, was serious with just a tough of sarcasm about the characters.  granted I have only seen the movie once and wasn't really looking for it.  It was general curiosity on how it was racist. I am sure if I watched it again a few times I could probably find a thing or two. I keep getting weird things on news feeds about "the one thing no one noticed about tangled" but again I have only seen that disney movie once and I am not sure what I missed or what the hell they are talking about.  Tangled was awesome IMHO.

But I also really liked Princess and the Frog. I didn't detect any condoned racism in the movie, but then I might have missed something really subtle.

There is a point where two white bank owners refuse to give Tiana a loan because of "her background" but that was clearly condemned in the movie. Also the movie was careful as to the skin tones, i.e. the villain didn't have the darkest skin color, the heroine wasn't the lightest character, etc....

True but I think that was the point. I saw it as more of the reflection of the time and place they were living in (1930s New Orleans).  If anything, Disney acknowledged that it existed.

also tangled was incredibly adorable with a lot of squee moments.  Also the musical number with the mother in the beginning is pretty dark and shows how she controls her.

Capris are sort of shaped differently to normal length trousers though, aren't they? In the picture it makes it look like the knees are in a strange place. Plus you might not be short enough that they look like full lengths on you and just look a little too small.

As one who is 6'5", I've never had a problem with clothes that are too long, just clothes that are not long enough.

And pants.  Don't get me started on pants.  I have a 35 inch waist and a 36 inch inseam.  I'll go 36x36 and just wear a belt, but dammit are they near impossible to find.  There's plenty of 36x34s, 36x32s, 40x36s, 38x36s, but finding a 36x36 is like hunting for a goddamn unicorn and dammit I got started on pants.

Oddly enough, I have a pair of cargo shorts that I've had for over 10 years, and they still fit just fine.  Back when I got them I had a 32 inch waist...but even now they'll slide right off if I'm not wearing a belt.  Either they've stretched over the years or I never realized how gargantuan they were when I got them.

Speaking of shorts, all shorts are short shorts when you're tall -_-

Figure I make the old cadians into Merican Fusiliers, new cadians the Donian Imperial Guard, karskins vets as cadians.  Kind of want to have a 3rd infantry company but not sure what to model them after from Macharius's 1st army group (http://warhammer40k.wikia.com/wiki/Macharian_Crusade).  The hard part will be finding a regimental standard for the old cadians to use for that company.  not to mention coming up with 9 unique commissars all with pistols and power weapons.  Would be cool to get some cadet caps like in the pictures I posted to put on some models.  the closet thing I can find are some of my old last chancer models.

ah, armored fist platoons eh?  Taking a page out of the steel legion?


My lists look like this:
1-2 Mech Vet platoons (with attendant special weapons, mostly MELTA!)
Mix of normal Guardsmen with attached heavy weapons (you there! What are you doing to destroy the Xenos? Nothing! *blam* now you two take this las cannon and go with them)
Then a few Leman Russ, some Sentinals (lots of Autocannons), occasionally a Basilisk.
What I want to finish the unit out is 1-2 Hellhounds, 1 Manticore and a Valkyrie Vendetta.

I have no idea when I'm going to get to that though.

Probably never >.>;

I'd ideally like to have 3 companies  with 3 infantry squads and one heavy weapon squad for each.  One company will have a special weapon squad with snipers in it.  A squad of vets with bastonee flying in with a valkarie, 3 leman russ tanks and a command squad.  Some armored sentinels would be sweet too, and maybe 3 more valks to bring in a whole company.

I love commissars so each squad would get their own.

My internet is being dumb and won't load Google so I can double check but I believe that would be shonen-ai ("boy love"), like shojo-ai (for "girl-love"), which is basically equivalent up to PG-13 cutesy romance such. Yaoi and Yuri is outright erotica/porn. Maybe I'm wrong but I think it's mass wrong interpretation of the term. Like people saying they "gauge" their ears when they mean stretching or are referring to plugs.

Edit: I'm a recovering weeaboo.

when I googled it, it had said it was boy love, and mentioned both cutesy romance and the erotica.

Tovarish, for your future information in the defense of the State and our glorious revolutions. Please take note of the following information as it was vital to the crushing of the hitlerites during the Great Patriotic War, and resulted in the destruction of many thousands of their hated "Tiger" "Panther" and "King Tiger" tanks. The IS-2 was developed after the Battle of Kursk when the current KV series of tanks primary weapon systems proved to be no match for newly fielded Panzer Mk V and Mk VI's heavy armor. The Boss in his wisdom ordered immediate research into a new heavy tank to replace the KV line. Object 287 was based off the stop gap KV-85 design, and accepted into Red Army service as the IS-I in the fall of 1943. It was only in Soviet service long enough for the Iosef Stalin 2 to finish it's design phase and testing. With sloped heavy armor, and a 122mm main weapon capable of piercing 160mm of armor. It's high explosive shells also made for an excellent break through weapon as the IS-2 showed at the fall of Berlin. It is with the IS-2 that we see the starts of the "Inverted Wok" design. but with a much stronger forward bow section of the turret for the mount of the main cannon. The lines for that can be seen in the drawn image, but would be hard for the unfamiliar to catch. It is the opinion of this expert that the artist in question is a dog of the west who did not pay much attention to the stowage common to the vehicles of the Red Army of the time period. The spare fuel tank mounting is common for T-55s and T-54s in service in the Middle East with Soviet allies such as Syria and the United Arab Republic while the tank is clearly not one of these vehicles. At worst (on my part) it is an IS-3, the successor to the IS-2 that had a much more rounded turret (and truly ingrained that style into Soviet tank design).

Hell Zira might actually top Scar for pure EVIL. Even as far as her villain song goes. I mean sure Scar turned a bunch of mangy poachers into the Savannah's Third Reich, but power hungry and evil aren't necessarily the same thing as evil... and Zira's just... bloody.

And now, Sir Elton John. It's perfectly okay to sing along.


For recent Disney, it's still hard to top Tangled.

Kinda BS ladies can't become anti-tank helo pilots for real. I also find it interesting they specify a precise battlefield role like that. The mix of OH-1s, Cobras (yay!) and Apaches (Booo!) in one squadron also has to be a complete logistical nightmare. Hueys and Cobras are bad enough and those things have at least some commonality of parts.

This probably has too much point to be in here, but one of my lecturers told us we should try not to announce the baby's gender when it's born because frankly very few parents care about that as much as they care whether it's got all its limbs and is breathing.

I ALSO WALKED UPHILL BOTH WAYS IN THE SNOW WITHOUT SHOES

When I were a lad we spent 42 years in the arctic circle living up a tree, naked, in a howling gale. We crawled on our bellies for five miles through snow drifts to the pit where we'd mine ice with our teeth. Afterwards we'd scrub ourselves down with liquid nitrogen before an ice cream dinner. Of course we enjoyed it because if we didn't our Dad would beat us to death three times a night with icicles.

I don't know how the Navy works. Can you be temporary captain of a commissioned but inactive ship? They're probably too Serious and Businesslike to put him in command of CVN-65 for a day.

Post by: GarandMarine on 30 Oct 2013, 20:12
Hahah that would be cool, but unfortunately Captain Kirk does not qualify for the command of a United States Navy carrier. He's a black shoe (surface warfare) and to command a carrier you need to be a naval flight officer. Captain Kirk seems to be on his way up though (being the plank holder on a new ship class is a BIG FUCKING DEAL, especially for the Zumwalt class destroyers) so by the time the new Enterprise (CVN-80) joins the fleet, Captain Kirk has a good shot of being Rear Admiral (lower half) Kirk and could conceivably take command of the Enterprise group. Thus taking the Enterprise as his flag ship, and getting to command her that way. In the Star Trek primary timeline, there have been nine space craft named Enterprise, starting with the American space shuttle Enterprise and the V.S.S Enterprise, Virgin Galactic's first commercial space craft.

Interestingly, as of CVN-80, there have also been nine commissioned ships of the United States Navy that have carried the name U.S.S Enterprise.

Unless my eyes are really screwed up, while the MOVEMENT is terrifying the cobra doesn't actually strike once. It is totally wrapping that kid up for a snack though. For you non-animal types who didn't watch Steve Irwin growing up, cobras are stupid lethal snakes. They are easy to identify by their hoods. (that flared portion just below the head) when the hood is deployed it means the snake is knowing even more hatred then normal, and if it's looking at you while the hood is deployed, it means YOU are the target of that hate.

Here's a video of a kid who's best friends with a massive Burmese Python.
the kid and the snake have literally been together since the Chambath was in his cradle.

Oh! Hey look! Explanation for that gif found!
Quote
Children in snake catchers families in Srikakulam district of Andhrapradesh play with dangerous snakes. These people are very poor to purchase toys, so that they give snakes as toys to their children to play.

The video also clarifies that the snakes are defanged.

Wouldn't that fuck with your head if you were the cobra? You're one of the baddest motherfuckers on the planet, but some dude catches you, defangs you and now you're a children's toy.

Darwin at work.. I really think we should just take the warning labels off of things and let the population thin itself.. along with invalidating any lawsuits that arise from the result of stupidity.

Yes, I'm sure there was a warning label on it that said "Warning: If kicked may spin around and hit you in the face!". That's totally the aspect which would be safeguarded by doing such things, not, say, murdering people with allergies for the grand cause of Social Darwinism.

It definitely wouldn't confuse lack of knowledge with stupidity, either!* That's even provided you're fine with saying "Stupid people should die".

I consider all of the above to be far more 'stupid', though, so good luck with that.

* I've genuinely heard posters here completely flabbergasted that a bag of "Monkey nuts" had a note saying it contained peanuts, as a warning to people with allergies. Even though it's a local name for them that I had no clue referred to peanuts. If I bought those thinking they were a different kind and had that allergy then that's a really bad situation. They just had the good sense to realize certain words aren't universal. But that's apparently ridiculous.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: LeeC on 31 Oct 2013, 07:17
I'm with Valdis on this one.

Also I never heard of monkey nuts referring to peanuts.  Peanuts and Gober peas are the only names for peanuts I have heard.  The "Gober peas" one I learned through a song in music class back in the 2nd or 3rd grade.  I have yet to actually hear anyone else refer to it as such.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: kyomi on 31 Oct 2013, 07:28
I can see why people were "flabbergasted" because if I knew I had a nut allergy (whatever type that would be) and I see "Monkey Nuts", I would connect the dots and stay away from it; that's just my opinion. 

I didn't intend for it be taken as broad as that. There are some good warning labels like the ones you mentioned, but when talking about Darwin it's usually associated with the "Don't stick your finger in this, it'll hurt" type labels :)  I have been "poisoned" by the movie Idiocracy and whenever I see stupid crap like what that person is doing.. it makes me fear that we are just heading there that much quicker.

Not "seeing it the same way" doesn't change that people with peanut allergies don't necessarily have nut allergies, though. :roll:

Edit: PeaNUT... *sigh*

They're nutritionally similar and thus usually work that way as far as human food is concerned, but the naming convention is just out of convenience. They're legumes, like peas or beans.

The botanical definition of nut and the common culinary definition of nut are different, and each is valid in its own sphere of usage:

True (botanical) nuts:

Beech (Fagus)
Chestnut (Castanea)
Oak (Quercus)
Stone-oak (Lithocarpus)
Tanoak (Notholithocarpus)
Family Betulaceae
Hazel, Filbert (Corylus)
Hornbeam (Carpinus)

Seeds which are not botanical nuts, but are commonly called so:

Almonds (edible seeds of drupe fruits)
Brazil nut  (seed from a capsule)
Candlenut
Cashew (seed of an accessory fruit)
Chilean hazelnut or Gevuina
Macadamia (kernel of a follicle type fruit)
Malabar chestnut
Pecan (seed of a drupe fruit)
Mongongo
Peanut (seed from a species of legume)
Pine nut (seed of several species of pine)
Pistachio (seed of a thin-shelled drupe)
Walnut (Juglans)

As you see, rather few nuts are even edible!  But in my experience, people with an allergy to one seed (peanut, especially) are appropriately cautious about approaching any other seed, whether called a nut or not.

Um, no, a working men's club is a sort of pub for men who work. Except as of a few months ago, women are allowed to become members, and I'm not sure you're required to prove that you have a job (but you do have to be nominated by an existing member). Do those not exist elsewhere?

Am considering running to the supermarket to buy treats for trick or treaters. I can hear them in the street but no one has rung my doorbell yet. But I am about to go out for two hours - probably no point. Booo, I wanna see cute little kids in costumes.

This is the one time in the year when I really am a grumpy old git - I do not like middle-class kids (or any other - but that's what I get to be inflicted with) being taught to go round to the houses of strangers to demand gifts with menaces - what I believe is known as begging.

And now, to improve the mood, have some MLPxEvangelion images:

In the Star Trek primary timeline, there have been nine space craft named Enterprise
And the Soviet space program never existed, at least according to ST:Enterprise's notorious opening credits... Actually, if you look carefully, you can see a Soyuz (or possibly Progress) docked with the ISS, but that hardly excuses omitting the first artificial orbital satellite (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sputnik_1), and the first man (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuri_Gagarin), and the first woman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentina_Tereshkova) in space...

The botanical definition of nut and the common culinary definition of nut are different, and each is valid in its own sphere of usage
Much as shellfish, lobsters etc. are classified by cooks as fish, when cows, pigs, sheep and human beings are more closely related to fish than they are.

I can skip the MRAP though. Those things are terrible.
I think it's got that W40K look; ugly, massive, clunky, top-heavy... Just paint it some impractical colour like red, put some skulls on it, and you're done!

It features the X-33 too and that doesn't even exist as more then a concept sketch. There's an argument to be made or had here, but to be be honest, I just don't care. At all.

Now THIS I will make an argument about. The primary 40k APCs are low slung tracked designs, based on the M113 APC (the Rhino) and the BMP family (Imperial Guard Chimera)

(http://www.games-workshop.com/MEDIA_CustomProductCatalog/m1252439_99120101017_SMRhinomain_873x627.jpg)

You could probably even get the the v pattern anti IED hull on there without too much problem. Also unlike the MRAP the M113 (and by extension the Rhino) actually functions without constant massive maintenance and overhaul. MRAPs are a symbol of the DoD being utterly broken to me. A specific use tool that cost a fortune and the bulk of troops hated that we aren't even bothering to fly back.

The mainstay APCs for the Imperium are indeed somewhat sensible (Leman Russ notwithstanding), but 40K does have a great deal of vehicles that are just obtuse; rocket-spewing pipe organs, flying space churches, walkers of ANY form, and the Eldar who are absolutely incapable of designing any technology and not having it look like a marital aid.

As a Sisters of Battle player I stand by our rocket spewing pipe organ. It combines form (i.e. an awesome, fully functional shrine and musical insturment) with function (a vehicle mounted VLS missile system that can absolutely ROFLstomp... pretty much everything).

Ground floor.  Actually in some houses where the main living area is up a few steps, but the area below is not considered a basement, you have (say) four stories called "lower ground floor", "upper ground floor", "first floor", "second floor".  In the same way, the building I work in has four stories, labelled -1, 0, 1, 2; the main entrance is on 0, but there are other entrances on -1.

The hospital next to my home was extended recently - down the hill; as a result, the extension has six stories labelled -4, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, with the main entrance on -4.

(http://i.imgur.com/CmwHimS.jpg)

Judging by the uniforms I would say Marine Corp. A good way to tell them apart is that the army combat uniform appears greenish grey while the Marine uniforms have a more brown tinge. Also the Marine cover(hat) is a hexagon while the army cover is round.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: LeeC on 04 Nov 2013, 21:33
I know about their cover but the two in the background are too far away and facing a different direction haha.  Honestly upon a second glance it is marine, if you notice the marine to the far right's shirt displays what looks like an eagle globe and anchor. Nice catch on the color.  I figure it was just desert camo.  :-P
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: Nikolai on 04 Nov 2013, 21:57
Navy/USMC is the only branch that has a desert camo pattern. Army and Air Force deploy to Afghanistan in Multicam, which is a green/brown non-digital pattern. In garrison, us Army grunts are stuck with god-awful UCP, a grey/blue digital pattern. It's just been confirmed that we'll be switching to Multicam by the end of 2016, though.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: LeeC on 04 Nov 2013, 22:01
My building houses the Army corps of engineers HQ (I think its the HQ) so I see lots of camo but so many other services come and go that its hard to keep track as I am running to and fro.

@LeeC I consider it a point of pride to be able to identify a military by it's equipment in detail. I'm far from being an expert but typically I can take a pretty good guess. Knowing obscure unit insignia and history are useful.

UCP/ACU is proof that the army should not be allowed to make decisions for itself.

Post by: Nikolai on 05 Nov 2013, 04:50
I'm pretty fond of our ACUs, especially now that they've replaced the cargo pockets' velcro fasteners with actual buttons. That said, I hate UCP with a passion and look forward to the permanent changeover to OCP.

That's not why it didn't work out (so many other issues), but I mastered the art of leaning back against a wall at an angle to kiss her. My current girlfriend is still nearly 20cm shorter than me, and she's probably one of the taller girls I've dated. I'm not sure why, I don't have a preference for short girls and I'm not that tall!

Also I just realized this was the pointless thread but oh well it's still in response to something here, ha.

Though I may not have a problem with tall women I sometimes do worry they feel awkward about dating a short guy.

Step 3: ? ? ?

Step 4: PROFIT!

Also I don't intend on ever dating anyone else so it's moot, but I can't see myself with a woman taller than me. I think the tallest woman I would date would be about 5'9" (~175cm). I think Sarah's around 5'5" (~165cm) but she might be a bit shorter.

As I think I've mentioned elsewhere my mother actively encourages me to date tall woman, preferably non-white. Hah. Trick's on her. I am most strongly attracted to Colleens*. Her reasoning behind the "tall" thing is, at 5'9" I am the second tallest bloodline male in the main line of the family. (My second cousin is tallest, at 6ft, and his mother's 6'5", we know exactly where his height comes from) so she is actively encouraging me to breed height back into the clan.


Colleen (adj) - A woman of Irish descent, with the stereotypical features of that race, primarily pale skin and light eyes, more modernly it usually means redheads, but this traditionally is not a requirement.

YES. THIS. YES.

I'm a short fella as well (166 cm)... It took me quite a while to get used to the idea of being short forever and I think I got it past me. But worrying that it's awkward for the girl is something I still can't shake off.
Then again, the girls I dated were a bit shorter than me although the last one I dated was shorter only by a few cms so it was kind of funny when she put heels on. She didn't care though.

The only people I've dated who have been shorter than me were female, because I'm quite short - two of my male exes were at least a foot taller than me. I find it odd if women say "I could never date someone shorter than me" because really, that's your deal-breaker?

Post by: LeeC on 07 Nov 2013, 11:59
it was "the way things where" and no logic is really behind it.  Just Victorian era scandalization by the upper class maybe?  Women are "suppose" to be petite and the men are suppose to be big and brawny blah blah blah.  Those stigmas of yester-year still linger a bit in western culture but are generally not important.  Today we focus on the "what/who makes you happy" than someones social standing or what other people think of your relationship from a superficial standpoint.  Or so I have observed in real life.  Internet people act differently of course from reality.

I do find in general that women prefer men who are taller than them.  Its like explaining why someone is attracted to X.  You can't explain it, it just is.  That doesn't mean women only date taller men in general, its just the preferences I've seen/discussed with women.  Most men I have talked to prefer a shorter woman.  Not because of any sexist reason, they just prefer it.  Honestly I have only dated 1 or two women who are shorter than me but because I am short I end up dating women taller than me. I remember one girl asking me if I feel weird dating someone taller than me.  I looked up at her and replied "most people are taller than me, what do you mean exactly by feeling weird?"

I met her briefly, she's friends with another model/Marine I know up in Chicago, seems nice enough, clearly knows what she's about. I do get the criticism she gets though, namely that she uses the Marine Corps and her position as a Marine to help fuel her modeling career. I don't think that's why she signed up, but I understand where the perception and criticism come from.

fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.

I do get the criticism she gets though, namely that she uses the Marine Corps and her position as a Marine to help fuel her modeling career.
Why is that grounds for criticism as long as she does her duty? Suppose she was a guy, who got a job as, say, a mechanic with a "leg up" from being a Marine. Would that be criticised similarly? I think not, and smell misogynism, or at the least sexism.

Oh, and since someone asked, I'm 160cm tall. Just.

I did not. That looks bloody terrible. So terrible I can't even make a joke. I'm not even mad. Just disappointed.

It blows my mind how "national costume" can be so widely interpreted. Love the ladies who actually showed up in relatively unmodified traditional clothing. Shit managed to still be pretty sexy.

@Akima, there is a small group of relatively minor models in the United States who have selected military service, usually in the reserves or national guard of a nation's military. The theory is because it lets them work that angle when competing for contracts. This criticism originates in the military's active duty female components. While the males are a little too distracted for such high minded thoughts.

However if our theoretical mechanic joined ONLY to get job training and he was in my squadron? He'd probably not be very popular. I can't speak for the other service branches who tend to work the job training angle fairly hard, but the Marine Corps perception is that type of crap is a benefit. You can take benefit of it, but showing up for "just" the benefits gets the stink eye from a large portion of our population. For example service personnel who enlisted or went through ROTC "just for the college benefits" which would also be comparable, are ostracized from the normal community if they vocally express that, especially in the transition from peace time to time of war. Many people take it rather personally as a form of betrayal against the bonds of our oaths and our es spirit de corps.

Now I happen to know Shannon, and know she joined to serve, she's on the bounce and good Marine to boot, but if she or someone like her, male or female said to me "I only joined to use the name and title to my own benefit" ...my response would be the same "Fuck you, go stand on someone else's back"

Not as heart-pounding, but still rad, Kelly McGarry doing a backflip over a canyon. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x76VEPXYaI0) Best watched at 1080p, full screen.

Given the choice I'd much rather base jump or wing suit then do what Mr. McGarry just did. Either will get you massive amounts of adrenaline but if I fuck up the jump I'll probably just be dead instead of a pile of smashed bones and pain.

Just.. Ew... Potato chips + chocolate is pretty disgusting in my opinion. I've had them before in ice cream (Ben & Jerry's Late Night Snack) and I had to pick them out to finish the ice cream.

lol. I remember that commercial. Besides, that death ray is nothing more than a common teleporter ray [/futurama]

On second thought.. is that a cardigan and a skirt?

I particularly like the contrast between the photo and Paul's signature.

Which, by the way (as I don't give the reference) is the catch phrase of one of the characters - and spoken by another as the final words - in the anime series Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi.

 Because those are their names in the game/manga/canon/etc, and the anime is an adaptation of the games Red and Blue.

As a person who was irked that the anime didn't follow my gameboy game, I should really watch this genesis!  I always renamed red as me and blue my brother (I had red brother had blue, in his blue game he did the same) we battled and traded in a way so we had all 3 starters.  :-D

The name in the games depends on whether you're playing Red or Blue, and Red/Blue are just one of the three options it gives (not even counting the infinite possibilities of making your own). What makes "Red" the canon name for the game?

The Manga and Nintendo say so?

Post by: Method of Madness on 15 Nov 2013, 16:04
The manga saying so means they're canon in the manga. Nintendo saying so means nothing at all. But I guess calling him Red isn't wrong so it's all good, it just sounds weird to me.

Like I said, he's called whatever you want in the games, and it gives you three options if you don't make one up. Ash is one of those choices, if I recall, as is Red.
Title: Re: Umm, what??? That's pointless...
Post by: Cire27 on 15 Nov 2013, 17:55
And that's only true in the games where you play as him.  In Generations II and III, and in Black and White 2 he's called Red.

First time I watched Thor was with Sasha and she kept telling me "Don't think too hard about it. Just enjoy it as an action movie"

I wasn't the least angry or butthurt and actually thought it was quite fun, but my mind kept going "This is wrong! This is all wrong!" and it carried over to the Avengers movie. Every time Thor and Loki opened their mouths my brain went "Ynhljbasfsgdb!!!*blue screen*"

I had a similar reaction to Humon honestly. Why the hell is Thor a blonde? He's depicted with red hair. That's where the expression "Let red haired thunder see to that" (no it's no common any where in the U.S. bite me) comes from.

I wonder how much force she can actually deliver with that axe kick. I personally avoid those because I can deliver signifcantly more force with literally any other kick besides a snap kick, and I feel the axe kick leaves you significantly more vulnerable and exposed. (Off balance, etc)

I like it as an image; but you know how before TV programs they have those warnings about flashing images and such-like?  BK's present avi is on the borderline for that, and the proposed one (which he sensibly spoilered) is a step too far because of the greater contrast in the flashing - sorry!

Maybe I'll be able to track down a recording.

I seriously did not get any of those references from that gif... I think people are too serious. All I saw was a joke and it was like "hunting". Put out the bait, catch them and then walk off.. nothing in there hinted at anything other then it being a joke. Possibly I just have a warped sense of humor or something?

Although while looking at it, I was thinking of some comedian and another gif I saw, where the comedian was saying something about nutella and white people and the gif was some girl with a cart full of nutella with the caption "Doing it right".

Although I would of picked to be one of those succubus girls as my reward  :evil:

I would have picked THE succubus girls as my reward, but then again I already have a management position waiting for me in the Christian hell when some pious crusader finally manages to kill me.

The girl left of center with the purple hair reminds me of that demon lady from Mortal Kombat: Armageddon; her name was something like Nara.

This is quite possibly the best video on youtube:

Got to be wary of those Hong Kong based social apps.  :roll:  Does anyone else remember when Bitstrips was being made fun of on this forum a couple years ago?  How did it suddenly get big on Facebook?

don't know what that is but the girl in the second panel is nearly exactly how I imagine Patience Kys from the Ravenor novels, except with black/brown hair.  Kind of hope her and the first mate of the rouge trader ship hook up.  Although I know she was just flirting with him 'cause she was bored while they were waiting for something to happen with the sting operation.  That character wouldnt by chance be able to throw knives telekineticly, would she?

don't know what that is

After a battle in Evangelion, Shinji is relieved to find that Rei has survived.  She is famously unemotional, and they exchange the words in the heading and first panel.  She then produces a subtle first attempt at a smile:

To be one of them, not have one of them. I'm fully aware of the second part of your sentence, which is some of the reason for that  :evil:..  but they are just so pretty :)  The one on the far left looks like "I can't believe I got dragged into this again."

Also, I can't seem to stop watching that video

I wish this band was still together.. this is exactly the kind of music I like:

I could not take that Bitstrips thing seriously since the first sentence.. the amount of spelling/grammar errors made it hard  to read :/

@pwhodges: that's a cute picture...but you didn't answer my question.  :-)  May have to check the show out some day though.

What didn't I answer?  The show I named: it is Evangelion (Neon Genesis Evangelion in full).  A fuller explanation of how that scene comes about is not really appropriate in this thread.  The picture is from the four-part film remake (not yet complete), and the smile is a bit less subtle in the original series.  But I'd recommend not watching the films before watching the original series (26 eps) plus the film End of Evangelion which is an expanded version of the ending (ignore Death and Rebirth) - the series and film are both unfortunately out of print in English-speaking countries, and likely to stay that way for a good while longer.  If you have a real interest in anime you owe it to yourself to watch what is possibly the most influential series of all.

Taken from Wikipedia itself: "A fluffer is a person employed to keep a male adult film star aroused on the set. These duties, which do not necessarily involve touching the actors, are considered part of the makeup department. After setting up the desired angle, the director asks the actors to hold position and calls for the fluffer to "fluff" the actors for the shot."

does she throw knives telekineticly.  :lol:

@ Thomas Edison: You know, that you mention it, I have heard that term used once on family guy when Brian was directing porn. "Hey can someone fluff paul?"  Didn't make the connection though hahaha.  Glad Akima can't see me blushing through the interwebz.

Easy to find out. Just try to execute that jump from a kneeling position. And then get enough height to kick someone in the shins. Harder than he makes it look.

I can just about get my heels under me when I try that. There's no way I'd be able to kick someone doing that.
