This was actually my favorite scene in the entire anime.
These kids weren’t main characters, they weren’t even recognizable faces. You weren’t supposed to feel anything for them. In fact, you were supposed to dislike them, because they were too scared to go out and help the characters who were humanized, who you did like. But this fucking kid, this poor, scared kid who you don’t even fucking know, just quietly kills himself like it’s the most natural thing in the world. No drama, no theatrics, no emotional speeches. He just does it. Almost as if it’s just the rational thing to do, like drinking water when you’re thirsty. For me, there was nothing more real in the entire series than this, and there was nothing that defined the characters’ way of life more. Because what the hell kind of world do you have to live in to treat suicide like such a logical option?
if anyone is sad
Finished the card set last night, and ran a test game with sarcastickd. It plays out pretty well. (Despite TTS being a little frustrating on laptops without a mouse).
There’s a little bit of trouble, such as Player2 being immediately to player 1’s right, and the difficulty of organizing taken cards for scoring purposes, but other than that it plays pretty much like a real life version.
Configuration for loading it as a custom deck:
For those of you unfamiliar with this screenshot, this is a game called Tabletop Simulator. They’re run by berserkgames. Definitely worth checking out.
Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made
Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.
He proceeded to show it to us in class.
Two months down, 10 more to go.
The card template uses a traditional card shape (and the white spaces aren’t all equal, so I probably have to go over the black lines with the red colour) and that’s why they’re redboxed like this - though that’s also what they’re like anyway, so it doesn’t hurt too much.
As excited as I am to put these together, it’s a lot of hard work which will probably have little to no payoff as I don’t expect anyone currently playing TTS to know what Hanafuda cards are, or how to play Koi-koi.
The most beautiful cat cafe I have been to. It’s called Temari no Ouchi (Temari’s house) in Tokyo, Japan. The soft music and ambience feels like you are in a Studio Ghibli film. Had to take the Japan Railway there, but was totally worth the extra trip, & unlike the central Tokyo cat cafes, this one has no time limit, so feels totally relaxed. Several girls were even sleeping there amongst the cats.
Wait. What is a cat cafe? Like you just hang out with cats? This is the best thing ever.
PLEASE READ. WILL NOT HURT TO AND FORWARD.
Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles
and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the rubbish, but you’ll never make it!!!
If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with enough force to remove some your extremities. The liquid that comes out is
boiling hot as well.
Don’t pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the gutter, etc.
Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little water. A small piece of foil.
Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!! No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.
Please ensure that everyone that may not have email access are also informed of this.
I’ve dealt with these before. If you find one:
- Do not touch it
- Do not touch it
- Clear the area around it. It will explode on its own in time.
- Once it explodes, do not make contact with the liquid inside. If needed, flush it away with large amounts of water.
- Do not try to detonate it. You’ll probably be disfigured.
I’ve seen what these can do. The acidic liquid inside can strip the paint off a car.
when i visited vancouver these were everywhere. it’s not a fucking joke they’re actually scary
Just a reminder that there are awful shitty people out there doing awful shitty things to everyone else
there was a bunch of these at disneyland
i found one in my back yard, when i let my dogs out, i pulled them back inside, took my cousins bb shotgun and shot it from a safe distance (i was in my house and shot from the screen door. When it went off, my family and neighbors came running to see if everything was ok. I told them what happened and to watch out for them.
These things are not a joke! When we went to check the damage there was a fucking hole in the ground. The dirt in my yard is like CLAY.
This shit is bad news
PLEASE DON’T BE AN ASSHAT. PLEASE DON’T LEAVE BOMBS IN PEOPLE’S YARDS.
hoLY FUCKING SHIT ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME!? JESUS CHRIST! Please followers keep this in mind and do not touch those things. Fuck. I can’t believe that something like that even exists…
