There is nothing more terrifying than watching every cart in the parking lot zip across the parking lot at top speed during a thunderstorm... and nothing more satisfying than seeing that not a single one of them crashed into a parked car along the way.

From "Oh this has not gone well" (part 14) by Redditor "ThisHasNotGoneWell":

"Well," I started, how do I explain statistics, and not sound like the boringest boring person in the world, "In the world I come from people have enough free time on their hands, and they take games seriously enough, that people will study a game like a Mage might study magic. I had plenty of time when I was waiting for the pass south to clear, so I spent some time pulling the rules apart, figuring out the probability of any given hand. The other players might have a gut feeling as to how probable a given hand is, but I know the figures exactly. I'll also try to keep track of what cards I've seen played already. Between that, and having worked out the probabilities of each, I usually have at least an idea of how good my hand is compared to the others."

"Wait," she said, trying to wrap her head around what I'd just said, "So, you know what cards they have in their hand?"

"Not quite, I know what cards they probably have. And even if I don't know specifics, I'll at least have an idea of whether their hand is better or worse than mine, and that's really all I need."

"Don't humans have anything better to do?"

I thought of the many hundreds of hours spent playing videogames and watching Netflix.

"Nope."

Are there any old-time LJers here that remember Writer's Block? I really wish dreamwidth would implement some sort of feature like that, because it gave people something to post about when they have nothing else to write about. Things have been bland and boring lately and I've been going nearly a week between posting at times because there's literally nothing to post about, and I really hate going dark for so long. I need to dig up some daily challenges or something to keep my posting consistent.

That akusai drawing I posted the other day has gotten one hundred notes on tumblr so far and it feels super validating because it's been a long time since something I drew got anything more than twenty notes and it feels so good.

-that thing where you jump up onto something and the falling animation doesn't cut out and you kinda just float around flapping your arms like a sad bird.

-when you're just chilling and a dragon spawns nearby, and you kinda just absorb its soul before even starting the battle and then you have to battle a dragon skeleton.

-invisible dragons.

-that time that chief yamarz moonwalked through the entirety of riften.

-that time when my brother was doing meridia's quest and she lifted him high up above haafingar to congratulate him and give him dawnbreaker, and instead of gently floating him back down to the ground, she fuckin dropped him like a rock and he died.

-when you kill a bandit and they continue to just walk, usually into a wall.

-random floating weapons in random places.

-when you fast travel into a giant camp and a mammoth spawns like a hundred feet in the air and then splats down onto the ground.

-glowing farm houses.

-that time when all of the water in hjaalmarch just... kinda disappeared and all of the fish were just swimming in the air.

-invisible mountains.

-also clipping through mountains.

-that time on solstheim when the dead guard in front of the old attius farm's armor just floated up into the sky and left him naked on the ground.

"But there's a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother's story, because hers is where yours begin." -- Mitch Albom, For One More Day [via Goodreads]

Did you ever spend four days lazily coloring in the background of a drawing with a black gel pen because you’re committed to a piece’s Aesthetic™, only to remember 2/3 of the way through that you have a brush pen, and not just any brush pen, but the same exact brush pen you used to lineart the drawing in the first place, and that just filling in the background with that would have been infinitely easier? No? Just me?

Anyway, this was supposed to be one of those cliche “day and night” type things, and I thought it would be neat to try and replicate these drawings in their hair, but it just turned out looking like they had terrible dreadlocks, which is definitely not what I was going for.

Now I really like Klance, don't get me wrong. It has literally every trope that I love in my ships, but the extent that some of the fanbase is reaching to try and prove that it's canon is ridiculous. Klance is not canon, and probably won't be canon, just enjoy your ship for what it is for god's sake.

"The audience usually has to be with you, I'm afraid. I always regarded myself as not even preaching to the converted, I was titillating the converted.

"The audiences like to think that satire is doing something. But, in fact, it is mostly to leave themselves satisfied. Satisfied rather than angry, which is what they should be."

-- Tom Lehrer, in a 2003 interview in the Sydney Morning Herald (interviewer: Tony Davis)

[And then there are those satirists who manage to leave room for both reactions simultaneously...]

I think that some people forget that we have characters such as Riku and Lea, who did some things far worse than Saix ever did, who have either gotten a full redemption arc or are in the process of going through theirs.

Riku, like Saix, was a vessel for Xehanort's heart, who let his own jealousy and need for freedom consume him, and therefore opened himself up to Ansem/Xehanort's influence. He was able to overcome this, and Sora forgave him. The fandom forgave him. Riku did some fucked up shit in KH1, felt bad about it, and was a fully redeemed character by the end of KH2.

And Lea. As Axel, he did his fair share of bad things, usually for selfish reasons or because Saix told him to do it. Hell, I do still think his entire redemption arc is fueled by his own selfish reasons, because that fits his character, and again, the fandom has forgiven him.

So why doesn't Saix/Isa deserve forgivness?

On one hand, I've been really into dark, fucked up fiction lately and i kinda want to give killing stalking a read-through.

On the other...

...Sangwoo looks like Jean from attack on titan with bad eyeliner and I can't unsee it.

"Rabbi Hillel also asks, 'If I am only for myself, what am I?' If you don't identify as being negatively affected by misogyny, this is where you come in. We are all part of the interdependent web of existence. What affects one affects us all. Sometimes connecting the dots from one form of harm to another is too abstract to notice immediately. Sometimes we benefit in obvious ways from oppression, even as our bodies and souls are destroyed in other ways. Cisgender men benefit in some ways from patriarchy. They get higher salaries on average, reduced risk of violence, and a greater likelihood that they will be heard when they speak, among other things.

"Patriarchy also gives men an increased risk of being bullied if they veer too closely to feminine patterns of behavior. It leads society to punish men for maintaining a connection with their emotional and inner life. It gets in the way of true and trusting relationships. Misogyny negatively affects men. Being for ourselves and being for others can mean the same thing when it comes to dismantling oppression."

My ringlight just kinda... threw itself off of my desk.

I mean it's possible that it was the wind; I had my blinds and window open to let in some air, and it's storming and rather windy outside, but I've had my window open in similar weather before and it's never fallen over before. Plus it flew rather far.
