I will never truly know why this thing never stops being funny to me


I love poor translations. I hope these make people understand how important translators are.

Have you come across any comics that've seemed particularly cute and/or particularly funny? Why not post them here? Have fun!

I used to go through quite a webcomic phase.

Count your sheep is probably one of the most adorable webcomics I have ever read.

How does the lamprey decide what to do? Within the lamprey basal ganglia lies a key structure called the striatum, which is the portion of the basal ganglia that receives most of the incoming signals from other parts of the brain. The striatum receives “bids” from other brain regions, each of which represents a specific action. A little piece of the lamprey’s brain is whispering “mate” to the striatum, while another piece is shouting “flee the predator” and so on. ... all these regions are held in check by powerful inhibitory connections from the basal ganglia. This means that the basal ganglia keep all behaviors in “off” mode by default. ... You can think of the basal ganglia as a bouncer that chooses which behavior gets access to the muscles and turns away the rest.

Guyenet describes high dopamine levels in the striatum as “increasing the likelihood of engaging in any behavior”. But that’s not really fair – outside a hospital, almost nobody just sits motionless in the middle of a room and does no behaviors. The relevant distinction isn’t between engaging in behavior vs. not doing so. It’s between low-effort behaviors like watching TV, and high-effort behaviors like writing a term paper. We know that this has to be related to the same dopamine system Guyenet’s talking about, because Adderall (which increases dopamine in the relevant areas) makes it much easier to do the high-effort behaviors. So a better description might be “high dopamine levels in the striatum increase the likelihood of engaging in high-willpower-requirement behaviors”.

But what is high willpower requirements? ...

I always felt Stolas is more of a sub. (giving that extra irony, since he's one of the Lords of Hell)

But I wasn't maybe attentive enough in the raunchy scenes.


Smells like Powerbottom to me.

>The only thing I don't tolerate is if they start getting handsy.
Well, I know from my going out high school and college days, that couple's dances tend to get really touchy. Like slow dancing is one of those stuff that gets put up to get people to dance really close.
Had some minor classes in ballroom dances to get to senior prom, which were waltz and disco swing.
But definitely have I seen videos of dudes being very lecherous in (trying to) touching girls that were not into it. Which I feel is just a very trashy thing to do.
Plenty of opportunity to meet

Boombals here, folklore dancing, were a fun thing to partake in. Plenty of opportunity to meet people for courtship and there was a more serene open setting. Not many people getting drunk, not too crowded and I suppose given that space it's harder to act inappropriate or to mix up signals.

Abandoning all hyperbole, I do feel like I am getting old to still go out dancing. Not a lot of memory do I have for paty events that included people out of their 20s.

> Maybe some day you could come out with us!
It would be an amazingly fun idea, but that's hard to implement on long distance.

So, I haven't done one of these in a while because I haven't been painting as much. Recently GW's had some fuckery going on that's sort of killed my motivation to paint more 40K minis. I'm not swearing off 40K, but I'm definitely slowing down.

The GOOD that's come recently is at long last, my orders from the Battletech Kickstarter have arrived! So I'll show some of those off since they're cool, I'll probably start painting them tomorrow.

Here's the King Crab.

I personally don't, but I'm sure some people might!

I mean, if you get the inclination to go ahead. I expanded the thread theme from just miniatures to art in general for that purpose and to include more people.

Is it something that sits on the table or like a pair of goggles?

I'd say crafts count. I started posting these threads just to share things that I do for fun, so it's not like there's a high bar to meet.

Of my models, you mean?  Perhaps, but they're not really out and on display at the moment, so maybe tomorrow.


Yeah, sits on the table, has a light on it, too.  Theoretically has some clamps, but due to the mentioned shoddiness it doesn't hold things particularly well.

Sometimes that's nice. I know I don't always like to be out for hours and hours.


Sure, and it was a long and active day too, so being home at a decent hour was probably for the best. I just hadn't seen my friend in a while.

But hey, going to my cousin s's daughters christening, popping in to watch the new Candyman movie and then getting drunk at a combined bar/arcade with a friend was a pretty rad day.

What's your general schedule like in terms of rest?

What, if anything, do you need to change?

My normal routine is 1 to 9, and I'm grateful that I'm able to sleep generally well, with my words of affirmation and whatnot

If I had to change anything, I should probably be more consistent in my morning workout, cause it's easy to skip if I'm feeling groggy, but it is absolutely integral to feeling good to the rest of the day

Get up at around 8 AM on weekdays and 9 AM on weekends.

If I fall asleep, i will never ever wake up until I'm done. I am a heavy sleeper.
My sleep schedule could be better, but I sleep enough hours to be healthy.
I would like to wake up earlier and sleep earlier too. But I don't want it THAT badly.

Okay, elephant in the room today.
It’s been 20 years since it happened. Where were you?
I was in 3rd grade. I didn’t know anything until I came home. I screamed “Oh My God!” When I saw this on CNN. I have an aunt that lived (and still lives) in Greenwich Village just blocks away from the site.

Actually while we're on the subject no one outside of Sweden gives a shit or remembers this because unless it happens in the US it doesn't count as history but exactly two years later on September 11th 2003 the Swedish minister of foreign affairs, Anna Lindh, got stabbed to death by some random guy. I don't have any real point to this story except political assassinations are not a common thing and it was spooky that it happened exactly on September 11th so I was like "oh okay, so this date is just cursed then".


that is indeed spooky
