Metric_Furlong: *possibly
JusticeJuice: Something to throw?
Saxpython: Paul's timing was incredible. if that was an EDM song it was right on the drop
beowuuf: @Metric_Furlong i'm more worried about the suggestive pauses, personally, though that does lead to me worrying about the hands more, too.
PharaohBender27: Wonder if we'll see lrrHEATHER at the Moonbase or at home for this Chillpoint
beowuuf: plot twist, heather is in paul's house, paul is in beej's house with beej

Metric_Furlong: you ever suddenly half-recall some individual internet comic you encountered about 2 years ago once because it suddenly seemed relevant to something unrelated but because you only half-recall it you're now completely unable to find it again?
Metric_Furlong: I'm having one of those moments
kusinohki: what are the chances "zebra turkey fish" shows up in DB random dance party?
PharaohBender27: @Metric_Furlong Not that per se, but I know the sort of sensation you're describing
BlueChloroplast: zebra turkey fish, turkey fish!
saiarcot895: @Metric_Furlong yes, but for general articles/videos

electric_claire: Backpage is it
HorusFive: Or maybe didn't start with flagrant breach of contract
acheynutz: hi
couldntpickausername: dammit, paul beat me to the joke
Mai_Andra: β™« Back β™ͺ door β™ͺ lover β™«
senshisun: the site shut down years ago
F1SHOR: as someone that works for the courts you dont want to mess with the judges
electric_claire: The whole case against Backpage is shameful. They couldn't bring them up on facilitating sex trafficking (because they took great pains to keep it off their platform) so they brought them up on spurious money laundering charges.
Saxpython: Dismissed without prejudice
Izandai: Legal terminology is great.
electric_claire: The expert the prosecution brought on is *awful* and the main reason for the mistrial
kusinohki: "no one is happy... A TRUE COMPROMISE! " - lower decks
Izandai: And merch, right?
Juliamon: Effectively child labor
Earthenone: i was friends with someone who had to answer those phonecalls for apple
Earthenone: they...had a TIME
PixelArtDragon: I'm very dubious of Epic's whole "we're going to be good for the small developer!" schtick. I'm waiting for the shoe to drop on that.
Izandai: @Juliamon Hey now, be fair. The kids weren't getting paid for it. Kappa
senshisun: @Earthenone send them my sympathies because off
Juliamon: """legally"""
LarkSachrosis: Leegely
MagicalAttackGecko: Press X to doubt
PharaohBender27: That language seemed very CYOA (Cover Your Own Ass) to me on Sony's part
Earthenone: is it child labor if they are being paid in V-bucks? :P
saiarcot895: SLC/MLC/QLC chips
DeM0nFiRe: IIRC Sony was one of the companies that got in trouble before for saying opening a console at all voids warranty, and had to send out emails about PS4 saying you are allowed to open them and warranty still applies to anything not directly caused by you
ContingentCat: @PharaohBender27 isn't that the point of all legal language
DeM0nFiRe: (A few years ago)
PharaohBender27: @ContingentCat True, but it seemed a lot more blatant in the examples shown on Checkpoint
InquisitorGaia: i feel like if i were to replace a ssd in a ps5 id try to match the make
DeM0nFiRe: Yeah I still have the email from when Sony had to change tehir warranty

Mai_Andra: Somebody set up a ddos bot 4 years ago, and then moved to a different job and forgot that server existed, and nobody else knows what it does.

KeytarCat: @saiarcot895 Durahell batteries!

Earthenone: battery loot boxes!
LurkerSpine: and a bunch of those random Chinese batteries that get shipped with stuff
HorusFive: but but... you aren't allowed to mix battery types
HorusFive: The product directions say so
GhostValv: not set bonuses D:
Electrodyne: Ray-o-Vac, with the black cat made of lightning
saiarcot895: or shake it a bit lol
saiarcot895: smack it on the table a couple of times
Earthenone: take out batteries and blow on them like a nintendo cartridge
beowuuf: @CodeDancer product placement implies being paid to have items around. They've opened stuff in videos as a #ponsored, or declared if they've ben given free stuff for videos. Wormwood they have a sponsor code for, but they actually use the stuff cause they like it :)
Izandai: And Control
Earthenone: control also is in that universe aperently?
toenolla: Related: I just threw away my last Radio Shack brand AA
ContingentCat: you would think but
senshisun: @CodeDancer and sometimes they do sponsored streams, like a humble bundle / jackbox stream
Electrodyne: R@shack batteries used to be very good
ContingentCat: Just go to costco and fill a backpack with batteries

LordZarano: I actually only have Eneloop batteries, because I spent a few weeks reading a battery hobbyist forum a few years ago

Saxpython: Heather, never Protagonist, always prepared
ButButTheJesus: @HorusFive :D
frnknstn: Get a laser pointer, snipe the ghosts from afar
LarkSachrosis: Get one of those portable spotlights you can shut off streetlights with.
ContingentCat: I'm getting flashbacks to before roadtrips as a kid and stocking up on AA batteries for my gameboy and walkman
toenolla: But how would you change out the battery that's soldered into the crank flashlight? ;)
Lord_Hosk: @ContingentCat (thumbsup)
budgetdm: @lordzarano I am both surprised and not surprised that there are battery hobbyist.
Izandai: Yeah, that's just how America is.
Saxpython: :(:(:(
Izandai: Still though, the fact that he could just *find* a gun, just around...
InNoRush: This is my pencil, this is my gun, this is for writing, this is for fun.
fiftymcnasty: BIG DONK!
Mashamino: yeah, but the fact that there are several dozen guns just kinda... around, isn't much better
ButButTheJesus: DONKEH
CodeDancer: I wonder if they could use supercapacitors instead of batteries? Those things are cool
IbunWest: Big Donk Donk
Izandai: PrideLaugh
Juliamon: I learned about battery hobbyists when looking for perfume sample storage, one of the most popular cheap options is ammo boxes... which are also popular with battery enthusiasts
ContingentCat: No she's a woman so her suit has tiny pockets lrrBEEJ
Spacecarl: until she has to turn into a ball
senshisun: Samus's suit should have pockets
Saxpython: she packs you in her shoulders
Mashamino: and morph ball is not gonna end well
Izandai: She's not gonna put you in her pocket, Beej.
LordZarano: @budgetdm Yeah it's amazing. They make their own charge/discharge cycle devices to measure how good different batteries are
PharaohBender27: Why do those sorts of fake pockets even exist!?
InNoRush: That's where she holds the missile ammo
ContingentCat: katesLol yes, and you hear of the ones that are stitched shut temporarily so you check but no there's nothing there
Mai_Andra: The Zero Suit is just one, big pocket. xivGoob
InNoRush: Merch idea!
ButButTheJesus: plush metroid handbag
Juliamon: Definitely a thing
ContingentCat: I'd be shocked if that isn't on etsy
KeytarCat: I thought ZS-Samus had a bag of holdin in her bolt pistol
ButButTheJesus: ???
KeytarCat: I guess baby metroid clutch is pretty good
Juliamon: "We don't know *why* you wanted this, but fine, here"
The_FlyingDutchman: I mean it was kinda dumb they did not
Izandai: Having bought a bluetooth adaptor for my Switch a matter of weeks ago, I'm a little miffed.
saiarcot895: i'm guessing the bluetooth support was on the wifi chip, since those are usually bundled these days
toenolla: There's a morph ball on Thingiverse, go nuts. :)
LurkerSpine: bluetooth kinda sucks in general
The_FlyingDutchman: Works fine for me <50ms latency
beowuuf: SingsNote It doesn't maaaatteeeeer
Mai_Andra: β™« It could be bunnies! β™ͺ
The_FlyingDutchman: But I do know that depending on region those wifi/bt chips can differ greatly in quality. combine with the headphones
CaptainSpam: The fact that it limits the number of BT controllers to two implies to me that the Switch either lacks the bandwidth or processing power to do it "right" and had to compromise, and they decided not to bother until customers wouldn't stop bugging them.
LurkerSpine: 2.4ghz is a *VERY* crowded band
Mai_Andra: Emma Caulfield was also in "Darkness Falls" - a movie about a darkness monster that could only be kept away by keeping all the lights on. The monster was the tooth fairy. It wasn't a bad movie. It wasn't great... It was fine?
The_FlyingDutchman: @CaptainSpam also the reason the microphone would not work, as that would use up one or two of the channels rendering the controllers useless
CaptainSpam: @CaptainSpam Yeah, exactly.
ContingentCat: oh that's cool

saiarcot895: yeah IOT stuff is largely on 2.4ghz unfortunately
LurkerSpine: Microsoft controllers get them too, but they might have patch notes?
DeM0nFiRe: Updated from Controller to Controllest
PaintingWithFariss: @Juliamon I remember having to manually set mine up for that reason, really confused me when my lightbulbs wouldn't work when I got my new router
LarkSachrosis: actually now checking if my XBone controller needs updating
ContingentCat: removed sentience
Gizmoloid: About 2.4 vs 5 GHz signal strength - it depends on your router. My router's a bit wonky and its 5 GHz signal is way better through walls than 2.4GHz

lucha_libro: @Gizmoloid Well I learn something new everyday! :)
saiarcot895: @Gizmoloid i didn't know that lol
Izandai: whao
Izandai: *whoa
Juliamon: The number of people who assumed Animal Crossing just made up most of their fish...
Gizmoloid: guess why I learned it LUL
LunarJade: Yeah all the fish and bugs in Animal Crossing are from real life. Also the artwork too but it's given a different name.
saiarcot895: i knew most of the fishes were from real life, i just didn't think that one was, for some reason lol
Ethanjem: Got a gifted sub whhich is nice
lucha_libro: Well All things considered, Zebra turkey is not something I would have thought to name a fish. It feels like calling a fish Walrus Bagel or Cream-cheese Attic
Juliamon: It's a turkeyfish with zebra markings
ContingentCat: there's some great smear frames out there
AshBurnem: The computer knows where the foot is at all times.
Juliamon: (people are fine with "catfish" and "dogfish" but not "turkeyfish" for some reason)
lucha_libro: Why on earth call it a turkey though.. my but it does look like a brazillian float though...
Gizmoloid: So AI knows what's a foot and what isn't? That's still quite cool for me.
lucha_libro: @Juliamon Well I mean if you are going to put things into perspective... XD
MrMatternot: The more realistic a sports game is, the less fun.
Izandai: huh
Izandai: @MrMatternot For you.
ContingentCat: poor niche purpose animations not getting a chance
saiarcot895: how much space did those unused animations take up (and could have been removed to reduce game download/storage size)?
RockPusher: He's eating poutine from the trophy!!!
saucemaster5000: eh let me know when they get realistic fire physics for when a sick dunk lights the basket on fire. Like in real life.
Lord_Hosk: Not only download size, but how much smoother and faster could the games have run without all that fluff
ButButTheJesus: oh yeah one of the Battlefield games had low-chance gun reloads, like stuffing an RPG into the tube backwards
Gizmoloid: @Juliamon I think people are more familiar with its other name: lionfish. I definitely had a moment of "Oh, it's THAT fish!" when I looked it up.

Lord_Hosk: And the reason that Dream "got caught" is because he streamed dozens and dozens of attempts. It raised questions on other speed runs that only submitted one video
CrazyZonie: I'd use cosmic rays on my bank's computers to change my ballance. But my luck, I'd probably flip the +/- bit to the negative.
GhostValv: real science!
PixelArtDragon: "Please install this keylogger" might not be such an easy sell.
Saxpython: Paul A+
LordZarano: It was also the lowest bit in the upper half of a register, so there's still a chance that the upwarp was a glitched increment.
Izandai: It's... Actually not that hard to fake a speedrun. A lot of the community is built on trust and reputation.
saiarcot895: @PixelArtDragon doesn't have to be a keylogger; if you're using an emulator to speedrun something, you can show your keypresses on the stream
saiarcot895: there's plugins (or addons or something) that'll show it on screen
DeM0nFiRe: Trackmania had a bunch of cheaters get caught by people analyzing whether movements in the replay files were possible by a person, was pretty neat
LordZarano: The bounty that Pannenkoek put up was specifically for a complete input recording from a TASing emulator
LarkSachrosis: Love a moment from a SGDQ from a few years ago when a Mario Kart speedrunner just said "Yeah the computer cheats, we have the data".
Izandai: paul pls PrideLaugh
TehAmelie: i remember when our local videogame mag kept a highscore list based on what peole bothered to tell them in snail mail
LarkSachrosis: Trust and reputation can be lost
GreyOrb: The difference is that in science you should be able to replicate the result.
humblemeeee: the guy in the center looks like a walmart version of Alan from the Hangover movie
TehAmelie: it was strange to me that people got on the list for a score of "000" in Link to the Past
LarkSachrosis: Andrew Wakefield used to be pretty respected, then he did some shady stuff...
Izandai: That's... Not really how it works, Beej. In order to get published, you have to go through peer review, no matter how esteemed you are.
PixelArtDragon: Who remembers the neutrino thing from like eight years ago? Turns out they had an error and the neutrinos weren't going faster than the speed of light. They found that because other people checked their calculations.
RockPusher: See, Planet X
Izandai: That's literally what makes science science.
ButButTheJesus: @PixelArtDragon yeah i remember that
Rourke9: That said, there are many fraudulent papers that get through peer review
TehAmelie: you're gonna have to be able to rep,licate it in front of at least one independent observer
LordZarano: "No Prior Runs" is criteria for runs being rejected for some games and categories
PharaohBender27: @Rourke9 Yep. Studying to become an archivist in grad school, I read a story about a history professor who wrote a book, which presumably had gotten peer-reviewed, was based on primary sources the guy had made up.
Izandai: Not just spicy peppers. Any ingredient that will create cold-resistant food, if lit on fire, will create an updraft.
Izandai: It's *definitely* an easter egg.
TehAmelie: fun challenge: find out what game high scores/speed runs are relevant enough for Guinness Book of Records to send an observer if you're going to try and beat it
RockPusher: Pulling yourself up by your boot-peppers
Izandai: Okay, that's amazing.
ContingentCat: wait are you saying everything else in that game is 100% scientifically valid?
TehAmelie: bootstrapping is surprisingly viable in computer physics
Izandai: sure
Izandai: why not
BlackIsis: sorry what
Izandai: Command blocks, I'm guessing?
Mordin_Solus_Sings: I would have sworn this happened like 5 or 6 years ago.
Izandai: Lots and lots and lots of command blocks?
BlackIsis: Ooooh okay
SpacePotato01: I want a koopa shell for mining.
Izandai: Oh okay.
SpacePotato01: or whatever these things are called
DiamondMX: They modded Margaret Thatcher into Doom.
SpacePotato01: modded?
DiamondMX: I think she's a new bad guy?
RockPusher: HypePunch sergeSheep
TehAmelie: i liked that. "send Thather back to hell again" i think the slogan was
PixelArtDragon: But can Minecraft run Doom?
Agu_Sakku: jennyj4OMG2
saiarcot895: @PixelArtDragon don't give them suggestions LUL
DiamondMX: I'm pretty sure Minecraft already has run Doom
RockPusher: !smash
LRRbot: Put Smash in Yakuza, you cowards!
CrazyZonie: @PixelArtDragon I'd rather have Tetris in Minecraft. But eh.
TehAmelie: the average webpage uses more than enough memory to run Doom. it's probably no challenge for Minecrafters
Lord_Hosk: Kim and Also Possible
DiamondMX: But neither Six nor Seven?
rrtycoon2: Just not the Spike TV version.
LurkerSpine: it should be noted the pos creator will not see a dime from this game
DiamondMX: You can defeat one Ice Climber and the other can fight on, in Smash
Lord_Hosk: I never wanted to watch Cat Dog because I had a simple biology question I didn't want to think about
KV1NN4: @LurkerSpine one one hand, good... on the other that might set a presidence for creators in general not seeing dimes. o.<;
TehAmelie: they won't come if you just invite one
DiamondMX: Are they Both?
Izandai: PrideLaugh
CrazyZonie: @Lord_Hosk Like how they go poop?
ContingentCat: yes?
Lord_Hosk: BINGO
saucemaster5000: on the toilet, obvs
BlackIsis: Well, evidently the guy that made it is a giant piece of shit, so dodged a bullet there Beej
Gaz_L: most of the funny bits aren't to do with Ren nor Stimpy
silenceaux: grotesques
TehAmelie: you can look up how people poop in Antarctica. it's a whole science
Juliamon: BlackIsis Only one of the guys, Bob Camp's still a good dude
Saxpython: +1 Beej
EvilBadman: Also John K very problematic.
DiamondMX: I've never found stupid and/or gross funny. So many cartoons rely on that.
BlackIsis: @Juliamon I guess.
Penguino_Rojo: doesnt help that the originap creator was super problamatic
Juliamon: Danny Phantom, another problematic creator (of a different sort)
Lysander_Gustav: don't beat around the bush, the original creator was a garbage person
Izandai: Jenny is Nickelodeon yes.
TehAmelie: Captain Kangaroo , one of the first ever kid's TV show hosts, is in Hell according to one Scrubs bit. and it turns out they knew what they were talking about
TheAinMAP: "My Life as a Teenage Robot" is Nick.
ContingentCat: we got my life a a teenaged robot in Canada
Juliamon: todaaaay
niccus: in 1 and a half hours
Lysander_Gustav: Is Deltarune good?
EvilBadman: 2 hours?
Izandai: Soonβ„’
Juliamon: It's also *not a news story*
EvilBadman: 8 EST
Cunobelenos: So hot, Beej.
Alex_the_Droog: Is LBP still a thing?
cardicLon: Deltarune 2?? Thank you for mentioning this!
YourFriendTopher: All these LBP levels I made a decade ago don't exist anymore :'(
Izandai: That's not an outfit, Heather. That's his skin.
DiamondMX: @Alex_the_Droog Yes, but less this week than it was last week.
Saxpython: LBP is very it takes 2
rrtycoon2: LBP was a fun little creater game
Izandai: Threadcount as part of the marketing.
CrazyZonie: I think the Little Big Planet plug pulling is more problematic for the people who grew up on those games and their parents.
Mai_Andra: Final Fantasy XIV official hype stream is tonight. I'm sure it assumes people are current on the main story. Expansion in two months. xivCactuar
BlackIsis: sorry...what
Lysander_Gustav: for counting money and so forth
Alex_the_Droog: @DiamondMX I thought Dreams took over where LBP left off?1
LarkSachrosis: Internet Today described them the same way
Juliamon: Yes
Juliamon: They greenlit the masks
SpacePotato01: When you all started talking about 'razer gloves' I was thinking more 'edward scissorhands'
TehAmelie: i'm sure someone will be able to summarize FF14 so far in 30 words or less for all the newbies
Juliamon: And I still want one
Lysander_Gustav: now I feel vaguely nostalgic for the power gloves
Mai_Andra: β™« Shiny! β™«
DiamondMX: According to Razer's website, the mask does not yet exist. It's still in the "sign up for notifications" stage.
LarkSachrosis: Silver is antimicrobial?
kusinohki: I think I have fingerless gloves. they were given to me by a flute player from marching band
Lysander_Gustav: Because the copper threaded glove market is cornered by wellness cults
LordZarano: NerdCubed's game news thing will probably be interesting. He used to play a ton of Little Big Planet on his channel with his dad
Lord_Hosk: "project hazel looks promising and is in development"
Izandai: PrideLaugh
Juliamon: Lysander_Gustav They've moved into silver now too
Lysander_Gustav: eugh
saiarcot895: LUL
PharaohBender27: katesLol
TehAmelie: i'm very careful with my DVDs. but today i found a couple of giant grease fingerprints on a disc i had not touched in like ten years. very strange
Chulump: Does anyone have any scotch tape I could borrow? Kappa Kappa
kais58: Just got here, have they talked about the WoWS stuff?
aiamethyst: the apple pencil makes a terrible screetch when using it on a clean screen
Lysander_Gustav: nice
niccus: beej.
Izandai: PrideLaugh PrideLaugh PrideLaugh
Chulump: Beej!
Lysander_Gustav: I'm here for this
PharaohBender27: BEEJ
saiarcot895: !adult
LRRbot: I need an adult!
Lysander_Gustav: I like where you're going with this
LarkSachrosis: Finger-Highs!
beowuuf: hummel doddies for all!
ContingentCat: !sir
LRRbot: Sir? Sir! It's like an al fresco general store!
LarkSachrosis: I'll see myself out.
Juliamon: As soon as you started talking I knew you were going for the zettai ryouiki... dunno what that says about me
SquareDotCube: And that's how you get Sexy Thing
saiarcot895: LUL LUL LUL
Phailhammer: Great, if I order one of these, now I have to order a tiny sailor skirt as well. lrrBEEJ
niccus: i don't think ao3 normally describes that sort of thing that often
JoannaTastic: Hugo-Award-winning website ao3?
Lysander_Gustav: a holiday?
CrazyZonie: @LoadingReadyRun is it a sign of a healthy relationship when the couple spends time talking about what they found on AO3?
ContingentCat: Happy Regular Crispy Day!
DeM0nFiRe: LUL
ButButTheJesus: lets stahp
TehAmelie: wow, i thought Supernatural shipping didn't exist outside this narrow tumble channel i try to ignore

Lysander_Gustav: Ao3 is a sanctuary
saiarcot895: @TehAmelie they even hinted it in the show at various times lol
DeM0nFiRe: lmao
EvilBadman: They haven't hit the coda.
Izandai: @saiarcot895 Oh they did more than that
saiarcot895: @Izandai are you thinking of the one episode where their lives are a school play lol?
TehAmelie: we are doing so good at not drawing horses
kusinohki: the finale again!
Izandai: @saiarcot895 No I'm thinking of the episode where one of them confesses to the other and then gets sent to Super Hell.
lucha_libro: I'm kind of disappointed that Monday ruins the wheeler streak XD
RockPusher: An Ending Occurred
saiarcot895: @Izandai i might not have seen that episode yet haha
Izandai: @saiarcot895 Novermber 5th, 2020... A date which shall live in infamy...
saiarcot895: ok then yeah i haven't seen it yet
saiarcot895: still on season 14
NovaTiempTwo subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 31 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, NovaTiempTwo! (Today's storm count: 48)
Notsobigal: Had more promotion opportunities than most companies
Izandai: That was a hell of a week to be on Tumblr.
Dread_Pirate_Westley: "All but One or Two Advancements Run"
TehAmelie: Death Loop is very hype
eXTeeGi: awww 12 Minutes isn't awful imo
BlackIsis: The speed run!
TehAmelie: don't know that it's good, but it sure is current
LordZarano: It's a 98.9% run technically
LurkerSpine: 12 minutes isn't awful, the ending ruins the game
Saxpython: Jumanji vibes
Izandai: @LurkerSpine Which ending?
mitomanox: lrrSHINE lrrSHINE lrrSHINE lrrSHINE
PharaohBender27: [insert Sonic.exe joke here]
Saxpython: <3
MagicalAttackGecko: just make a dummy exe and add it to steam
LurkerSpine: @izandai The "real" ending
TehAmelie: a dummy plug? oh noes
Saxpython: πŸ¦“πŸ¦ƒπŸŸ
Izandai: @LurkerSpine Really? Huh.
PharaohBender27: 7
ButButTheJesus: mola molaaaa
saiarcot895: 7 years
NovaTiempo: I think twich ate my sub, but at least my brother's prime went through :p
ContingentCat: 7?
EvilBadman: 7
eXTeeGi: @LurkerSpine I thought whatever ending I got was fine. I'm not familiar with all of them tho
NovaTiempo: aww
DeM0nFiRe: o/ lrrHEART
Izandai: @LurkerSpine You mean the third ending?
LurkerSpine: is there a way to do spoiler tags in twitch chat?
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
Phailhammer: cya :)
Izandai: Nope.
Saxpython: <3 <3 <3
TehAmelie: byee

ContingentCat: thanks Beej Paul and Heather
PharaohBender27: Thanks for the stream, lrrPAUL , lrrBEEEJ , and lrrHEATHER ! lrrHEART lrrHEART lunarj1Heart
TehAmelie: remember Returnal? just to see if it made any lasting impressions
LurkerSpine: the most spoiler free way to put it would be the Nintendo remake of Doki Doki Panic ending
NovaTiempo: returnal was great :)
Saxpython: omg the Geico/Tag Team Ice cream ad
TehAmelie: me, i liked it more before i realized the title is a play on "return" and "eternal" like nobody had ever thought of roguelikes before
Izandai: Nothing wrong with a good portmanteau.
NovaTiempo: I assume someo had just got really into portmanataus :p
NovaTiempo: Thats a better way to spell it :p
DeM0nFiRe: port man toes
TehAmelie: i am a fan of shipping Jaques Costeau and Natalie Portman
TehAmelie: see because their ship name is Portmanteau
NovaTiempo: sergeCrimes lrrJUDGE
TehAmelie: sorry (no i'm not)
CastleOtranto: That was a good terrible joke, @TehAmelie
TehAmelie: i got it from tumblr
TehAmelie: i try to get in 100-300 laughs every day. some scientists worry about a "laugh gap" that sets in between age 3 and 20 or so, that makes most people unhappy
TehAmelie: LRR does most of the work there tbh
TehAmelie: by the way did i mention the movie Casshern? it's sort of really unbelievably good. really inventive with its physical metaphors. a pretty hardcore look at how heroes and villains work in the real world. and it looks so, so good
