Wow, it’s been a really long time since I updated my wall.Overall I’d say I’m a pretty average netizen. I watch the occasional anime when I have time, my traditional favorites being Trigun, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Starblazers (Uchuu Senkan Yamato). Also, as you can tell by my avatar, I’m a fan of MLP (though I try my best to not be obnoxious about it), and western cartoons/animation in general.
As far as gaming goes, I see myself gravitate primarily towards the indie and retro circles, though of course I love the occasional triple AAA release. I like strategy games such as Dwarf Fortress and the Civilization series, most games that Valve makes, and really anything that looks fun. These days I mostly do my gaming through Steam, and if you want to friend me here’s my profile:
I’ve always been really interested in internet culture, I think it’s really fascinating to observe how things spread and mutate over time. That’s why I’ve loved KYM so much.
Within the MLP fandom, I enjoy all the fantastic fan content our artists create. I don’t watch as many videos or listen to as much music as I used to, but I still dabble in those. Primarily these days I’m into the art and fanfiction.
Speaking of fanfiction, my only real claim to fame in this fandom would be my story, I Wasn’t Prepared For This. It received a far better reaction than I ever could have hoped for. Still, things IRL have held me back from continuing it for a long time, though I hope to bring it out of hiatus very soon.
My body is ready.
Yeah, he’s half-Japanese and half-Australian, and as far as I can tell he grew up in Japan.
One of my favorite vids of his.
Fandoms are serious business, apparently.
What the fuck is wrong with all of you guys, honestly.
Ubisoft has made it pretty clear that their decision was entirely logical and reasonable. They had deadlines to make, and creating/animating/voicing extra female characters would have put them off schedule and overbudget. They are a company, that’s trying to make a product.
It’s not like they purposefully planned not to include female characters due to some sexist agenda. They had it planned, but things didn’t work out and they cut that feature. Simple as that.
Why has everyone got themselves into some frothing lynch mob frenzy because a single game isn’t going to have some female playable characters? Who cares?
Ubisoft makes great games, I’m tired of people vilifying them for no good reason.
It’s cool and all, but keep in mind the date.
This ain’t news, or anything.
I have to wonder though, how much injury the squirrel actually sustained from the fall. I mean, as someone who’s seen a cat fall from the top window of a four story house and land on the ground completely unscathed (I was on the sidewalk), I know from personal experience that small animals are light enough that they’re generally fine regardless of what height they fall from. Now, the Grand Canyon is definitely pushing it, but you have to keep in mind terminal velocity, and also the fact that the grand canyon isn’t a straight drop.
I haven’t watched the actual video of the kicking, so I don’t know how much horizontal distance that thing got launched, but it probably landed on a cliff outcropping only a few hundred feet down. Most likely, the kick itself did more damage than the fall.
It is of course still a dick move. Just thinking about if the squirrel is okay or not.
That moment when your entire life flashes before your eyes.
As someone who has spent a lot of time around Seattle, I totally agree. That city has a big problem with beggars, and while some of them might indeed need the money, a lot of them beg because it’s easier and actually makes more money than working, and they just spend the cash on more alcohol.
It’s especially easy to tell how genuine someone is when you offer to go buy them food when they approach you asking for money. A lot of them get all flaky and just walk off, because they didn’t actually want food. They wanted cash for drugs.
As long as it takes place in Equestria, and does not feature humans in any way.
Praise IT guy, lord of Milfs, tamer of Aphrodite!
Our hero, ladies and gentlemen.
Slam-fucking-dunk, Jon. Thank you so much for sticking to your guns.
Oh boy, it’s time to play the “I can’t believe it’s not Hitler” game!

I never discovered Homestar Runner when it was ongoing, and now it’ll take me months to catch up through years of backlog!
The Archive Panic is real.
You’re simplifying the circumstances of WWII and the nuclear bombing of Japan to such a ridiculous degree that I have to assume you failed your history classes.
Please go back to high school for a couple years, then come back to us. Thanks.

I read that in the singing voice of a gospel choir lady.
Absolutely blown the fuck out.
I know, right. Truly intelligent people in this day and age are the ones who get all the best jobs and make huge wads of cash.
Most of our “new money” billionaires got rich off of tech companies; Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg…
Tumblr people just think they’re more intelligent than anybody else.
Truly, these are the times that try men’s souls.
You have to keep it in perspective though, that space travel is a pretty new concept for humanity, all things considered. Humans have only seriously worked on the tech involved for the last eighty or so years. In that time we’ve gone from the simplest missiles/rockets, to spacecraft that will take us to the moon. In the grand scheme of things, we’ve made huge strides, and there’s plenty of things we still don’t know about the universe.
I have no doubt that within the next three hundred years, at our current rate of technological progress, humanity will have probably rewritten our understanding of advanced physics at least a couple times, and will know of as-yet-unconsidered solutions to the light speed problem.
Ancient peoples thought the world was flat, and if you traveled too far across the ocean you’d fall right off the edge. It is entirely likely that the physical impossibilities of today might seem just as quaint to future scientists.
