    • My mom's old cat died last night. Honestly, I had kind of expected it a year to the day after she had gone, but he held out a couple months longer. Over 15 years, total. And he was a little lover all the way to the end. Damnit, I'm gonna miss this cat. http://rainbowdash.net/attachment/875088

    • So I've been watching "The Family" on Netflix. It gets all chilling and spooky and feels like such a lifting of the veil, until I remember I've been watching this show in real-time for like 20 years now. It's more like a retrospective than a revelation.

          • @scribus That would change the world !

            No wait. I think it might merely cause some people in the Vatican to take up meditating for once in their life and maybe spawn some extra statues. Pretty sure after that it is going to be business as usual.

            Oh and maybe it will unlock new options for brothers and priests to do their hair, that would be neat.

          • @adiwan That would only make sense if my co-workers are a bunch of doom-sayers about climate change and having Methane pockets release from the binds of either ice or water on the poles would trigger side-effects.

            Actually, let me google that real quick

            So they are actually on to something but they are acting like chickens that lost their heads and are acting like doomsayers... Great... I bet that I can toss a plastic straw in between them and see them melt down.

            Good thing it is finally weekend for me.

I thought I'd be done in a week, however it takes longer than anticipated to make it versatile and not error prone and usable in VR and usable in code. It's the third week and it's not done. I'm about 70% done.

                          • So, does anime merit being considered a separate medium from animation, or is it a subschool of the larger medium? A genre of its own, maybe?

                            • @scribus I would consider anime a sub-medium. It’s obviously still animation, not broad enough to be considered separately from other animation in that regard, but it can’t be as narrowly defined as a genre either since it covers so many different moods and topics. It can’t be called a “style” either, because so much anime is stylistically distinct from each other. Some of them, I would argue, like Pokémon, are more similar to western cartoons than they are to other animes, and some western cartoons (Totally Spies, Code Lyoko, Wakfu) are more similar to anime than they are to other western cartoons, and some still are international productions (Miraculous Ladybug) which take after some elements of both. At the same time, even the most westernized of anime is distinct enough from western cartoons, culturally and stylistically, that you can’t say that the difference between The Simpsons and Venture Bros. is the same difference as the one between The Simpsons and Dragon Ball.

                          • Shower thought

                            What if I started my own country and printed some money, got some oversea's investors and try to run it the best I can for a couple months. Then instead of printing more money ( and causing inflation ) I would do the opposite. Unprint money, so that the value of the money I would have goes up EXTREMELY fast. Then go to Amazon.com and buy myself a 1 million dollar gift card.

                            Too bad that will never work. Amazon does not have 1 million dollar gift cards. I blame the Towel for ruining my plans yet again.

                            I would also upload a picture of someone but I am sure we all know who or what he looks like

                            No it is not Skarr from Evil Con Carne, I knew you would click this Adiwan !
