  • I haven't been feeling well lately, something to do with my stomach, for the last few days I've been getting fatigued and nauseated easily.
  • YouTube has been recommending me lots of clips of Speed being a psychopath:
  • 22/10 So there was this update, one with more bugs than a Scute Swarm deck late-gane. Today's FNM was Momir (play with all land decks, when playing a land you may pay X and get a random creature of that converted mana cost) and it was super easy to…
  • I've heard about the distinction, but I've never seen anybody irl calling both of them anything but "limón"*, the green ones being the overwhelming majority. Also in a bunch of places the green ones are "limones" and the yellow ones are "limas". Tho…
  • TIL about the terminology variety in what's called "lima" and what's called "lemon" (edit: rather, "limón"), as well as that in English "lemons" are strictly the yellow ones. I knew that Danganronpa puzzle felt too oddly ambiguous.
  • Here's an interesting design for a heating system in very cold weather. @Stormtroper for some reason I have a feeling that this is of interest to you but I'm not sure why. mfw I'm becoming the home ambientation guy
  • It is. "¿Qué está pasando con el corral/los alcaldes/los consejales/el presidente Zapatero?" Also: lol
  • If I remember Pokémon TCG's rules right, yeah. Turns out Quick Drafts are organized on week-based cycles, where for two weeks draft events are based around the most recent set and the following two weeks they're for two older Standard-legal sets ea…
  • I've heard doing alt+[something] can reverse things like this, or maybe I should have returned to select. Eh, I'll figure it out eventually. Alt+P -> Clear parent. I also learned that planes have sides, and that means textures only appear o…
  • ^^ Strictly speaking, decks have no color and every deck can have cards from any color (the exception is Commander/EDH, where your allowed colors depend on the card you choose as your commander). However, almost every coloured card requires paying f…
  • ^^^ Well, now that you mention it IIRC the one about past exams was thought of as a grey area. I coild be misremembering the other one too but the main idea that the standards for what constitutes cheating differ. ^ I'unno, we studied stuff where y…
  • This got huge, I wasn't intending to draw this out like this but with the nature of this weekend's events that's how it turned out. Thinking back it was kind of pointless for me to write a summary of each game, I thought each of them would be intere…
  • I'm reminded of a conversation I once had with a friend who studied in in England. She said, they're all like "wait, you're telling me one can CHEAT at exams?". I haven't really had a comparable experience myself, but I can say cheating on exams …
  • I'd have thought it'd be considered a symbol for non-binarity, you know, a cerulean-pink gradient Perhaps they're making an association between that and homosexuality, but at any rate that's anything but a rainbow.
  • Thanks for the heads up, I'll probably end up watching it. I've been somewhat less obsessed with Danganronpa lately, what with not finding more works to feed said obsession. Perhaps Akudama Drive will change that.
  • I had actually been thinking about that for a long time, I find 3DCG to be similar to stop-motion/toy photography/LEGO so I thought it odd that you hadn't given it a try.
  • I've been sitting on this one for months. Black Lives Matter memberd (IIRC founders, definitely not unimportant people) have thrown their support for the PSUV, in the context of police (and military and paramilitary) brutality, so yeah, regardless …
  • I tend to get the impression that the center is more focused on economic issues than either extreme. At the risk of reigniting the argument, I kinda want to mention that I too find off-putting how anti-US-(the-nation) rhetoric gets in the US, and I…
  • With a Principled BSDF node make sure you plugged the texture to the albedo color input I just realized I explained this badly: Blender's name for the node's albedo is simply "Base Color", that's where the color texture should go.
  • Linku ga nai...
  • (If I don't up and start practicing again, fourteenwings will become better at this than me.) This was done using the Cycles renderer, which sure took forever. If you're not using already, use GPU rendering, unless you have a CPU that's far bette…
  • Thank you guys. When I started I knew it wouldn't last forever and would just make the best of it while it lasted, a year and a half is on the higher side of what I expected. I've saved a good chunk of money with it, so that's something, but yeah,…
  • The chapters focusing on the woman from the sticks who found out that kids in the city played better was probably the most grating, but I guess they weren't too bad. I thought that was okay, something about finding out you're not special, peer p…
  • 11/10 I went 8/6. Historic Artisan has been good for a change, I've seen a couple decks that I hadn't seen before, so games often get interesting for that reason alone. Also for some reason I've faced lots of opponents who concede very early, perh…
  • I'm not that familiar with the phrase, but wouldn't its interpretation depend on the speaker? It's of course not literally true, but when I've heard it it seems to be a way to state that the things that the managerial skills used in businesses are a…
  • It seems likely that I won't be holding this job for much longer.
  • I haven't noticed it. Though I've noticed the non-political parts of IJBM spiking in activity during those political spouts. Besides that, again I've been having that sense of boredom and dissatisfaction with whatever lately, I feel like I should c…
  • It occurs to me that when things are going my way, I would do well in putting as much effort into thinking about how I could mess things up as I put into thinking about what to play next, so I can be more mindful into avoiding throwing games. In …
  • Un incendio es específicamente una calamidad en la que cosas que no se deberían estar quemando se están quemando, lo que en inglés sería "fire outbreak", en cambio uno puede referirse a una fogata o antorcha como "un fuego".
  • Android's Google Chrome started having this thing where tabs started overlapping each other, several things will cause some UI elements of one to be visible on the other and then the screen will jitter for a bit, it's unreliable whether the input th…
