So...do they use their own Pokemon game? Also...World Championships? Really?
You would not believe some of the insane math that goes into proper training.
See, Pokémon have genetic values, which they inherit from their parents, up to a value of 31. That means they have 31 points more in a stat when at lvl 100. Considering stats go up to 300 or so, that's a lot.

Then there are also Effort Values, which further raise your stats depending on which Pokémon you beat (e.g. if you keep beating Chanseys, it raises your HP, I think.)

And of course the different items the Pokémon can carry, which influence their stats, moveset, or do something else entirely like hurt the enemy on a physical attack.

Then double fights add a whole new level of complexity. For example, you can have very strong attacks like Earthquake which hurt all Pokémon except those who have Flying type - because they are, duh, flying. So what you do is send out your Ground Pokémon and a Flying Pokémon and let them rock the enemy to pieces.

...excuse me, I only have a vague memory of the last five minutes. I geeked out again, haven't I? :D

I love this wedding album!


Allegedly the story is that the groom couldn't get time off work for the wedding photos, (apparently they work 24 hour duty shifts) so the studio came to his station instead. I fucking doubt that for a wide variety of reasons, but this wedding album is 100% KM approved regardless.

That's an important image, but how people are using it bugs the shit out of me. They're using it in response to the ALS challenge, and while it would be good if the result was "oh, I'll donate it to something that needs it more", most people will see that and go "oh, instead of donating this to ALS, I won't donate to anything".

Also, for the circles, it looks like the actual scale used to match the dollars/deaths is the diameter/radius, which VASTLY exaggerates the perception because what we see is the area of the circles, which is a function of the radius squared. So yeah, it was made very specifically to deceive.

fair point, but i think it's probably more likely that the person who designed it just didn't know/care enough to take that into account.
