Do not wear contact lenses if you are in a situation where you may be tear-gassed. When I went through basic training, we were warned that there was a possibility the tear gas they were using could melt contact lenses.

It’s probably for the best that the picture didn’t have that Lyra plushie in it.
Hey, everyone! This is the creator of Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, here with a post I thought you all might like. Writer Ted Anderson and I have made a pitch for a superhero comic!
The comic is about nine-year-old Lucia Marquez-Miller, who…
Oh hey I recognize one of those names, Ted Anderson also writes for the MLP comic series. He’s also from MN and was at MLP-MSP back in June.
Wait a second, am I tripping balls?
HELP I CANNOT STOP LAUGHING
Sometimes life is just beautiful.
Does anybody know what he’s playing? It sounds so familiar.
It’s always a good time for Saria’s song.

Psyguy, aka Bryon Beaubien, has committed acts of pedophilia, sexual abuse, general abuse, sexual grooming, and more. He is known by many of his works, the most popular being Wha-Chow (podcast) and GG-Guys (general video game comic, drawn by Crikey Dave and written by Beaubien). Below is a breakdown of accounts from ex-friends, ex-girlfriends, past flings, etc. concerning his acts against them. These are not all of the things he’s done, but if we listed every single terrible thing he’s committed this list would be novel-length.
So there’s a big shitstorm commencing about Psyguy (who you may know of from the comic GG-Guys (which is currently offline like pretty much all of his sites/social media handles/what have you because he’s hiding like a coward) or either of this year’s Galacon promos. As is mentioned in this random blog post (which is a decent reader’s digest version of all of this) it’s not often you see someone being this comically and undeniably evil. It’s near equal parts absolutely horrifying and popcorn worthy (with more of the weight falling on being horrifying.)
The worst part (other than, well, all that shit he’s done) is the fact that even though there’s a mountain of evidence people are still defending him. It’s like come on, it’s pretty obvious he’s done this given the fact that there are, again, mountain of screen caps of conversations + emails, and most of those posts are waaaaaaaay too detailed to be made up. And don’t even get me started on his bullshit non-apology.
It reminds me way too much of the climate change/age of the earth deniers and anti-vaccers and of why people refusing to do accurate research (or even worse completely ignoring the legitimate research because it conflicts with their beliefs and flocking to the bullshit/pseudo-scientific/just generally bad research instead) are so very, very awful and make me so very, very angry.
It’s shit like this that sometimes makes me wonder if the misanthropes don’t have a bit of a point.

this is important
This is great, and I can’t wait to hear my favorite brown orc voicing Gamagoori.
ADHD is about having broken filters on your perception.
Normal people have a sort of mental secretary that takes the 99% of irrelevant crap that crosses their mind, and simply deletes it before they become consciously aware of it. As such, their mental workspace is like a huge clean whiteboard, ready to hold and organize useful information.
ADHD people… have no such luxury. Every single thing that comes in the front door gets written directly on the whiteboard in bold, underlined red letters, no matter what it is, and no matter what has to be erased in order for it to fit.
As such, if we’re in the middle of some particularly important mental task, and our eye should happen to light upon… a doorknob, for instance, it’s like someone burst into the room, clad in pink feathers and heralded by trumpets, screaming HEY LOOK EVERYONE, IT’S A DOORKNOB! LOOK AT IT! LOOK! IT OPENS THE DOOR IF YOU TURN IT! ISN’T THAT NEAT? I WONDER HOW THAT ACTUALLY WORKS DO YOU SUPPOSE THERE’S A CAM OR WHAT? MAYBE ITS SOME KIND OF SPRING WINCH AFFAIR ALTHOUGH THAT SEEMS KIND OF UNWORKABLE.
It’s like living in a soft rain of post-it notes.
This happens every single waking moment, and we have to manually examine each thought, check for relevance, and try desperately to remember what the thing was we were thinking before it came along, if not. Most often we forget, and if we aren’t caught up in the intricacies of doorknob engineering, we cast wildly about for context, trying to guess what the hell we were up to from the clues available.
On the other hand, we’re extremely good at working out the context of random remarks, as we’re effectively doing that all the time anyway.
We rely heavily on routine, and 90% of the time get by on autopilot. You can’t get distracted from a sufficiently ingrained habit, no matter what useless crap is going on inside your head… unless someone goes and actually disrupts your routine. I’ve actually been distracted out of taking my lunch to work, on several occasions, by my wife reminding me to take my lunch to work. What the? Who? Oh, yeah, will do. Where was I? um… briefcase! Got it. Now keys.. okay, see you honey!
Also, there’s a diminishing-returns thing going on when trying to concentrate on what you might call a non-interactive task. Entering a big block of numbers into a spreadsheet, for instance. Keeping focused on the task takes exponentially more effort each minute, for less and less result. If you’ve ever held a brick out at arm’s length for an extended period, you’ll know the feeling. That’s why the internet, for instance, is like crack to us - it’s a non-stop influx of constantly-new things, so we can flick from one to the next after only seconds. Its better/worse than pistachios.
The exception to this is a thing we get called hyper focus. Occasionally, when something just clicks with us, we can get ridiculously deeply drawn into it, and NOTHING can distract us. We’ve locked our metaphorical office door, and we’re not coming out for anything short of a tornado.
Medication takes the edge off. It reduces the input, it tones down the fluster, it makes it easier to ignore trivial stuff, and it increases the maximum focus-time. Imagine steadicam for your skull. It also happens to make my vision go a little weird and loomy occasionally, and can reduce appetite a bit.
Hope this helps and please do share this so that more people can learn what its really like to have ADHD.
This is incredibly spot on for my experiences, right down to my wife’s reminders.
In fact, I was just about to post something interesting when I found this post and now I have no idea what it was. I’m going to spend the next 20 minutes looking back over my feed to see if something re-triggers that exact random thought.
Oh my god, this is exactly it. This is my brain. This is my life. Seriously if I’m doing something DO NOT INTERRUPT
In an essay for graduate school, I likened having ADHD with anxiety like having a brain full of a cloud of rainbow butterflies… Made of fire and razor wire. I can’t help but chase the thoughts, but then I realize that I’ve lost control of the task and have an anxiety attack / I’ve caught the butterfly but it’s dead and I’m bleeding and burned.
As much as I hate self-diagnosing this post makes me wonder if I have mild ADHD
Yes. All the yes.
I may have to print this out sometime…
ummm.. new house rules??
Ok let’s play right now.
FUCKI NG GAME ON

THIS NEEDS TO HAPPEN
Might make this game more interesting.
This could also be easily adapted to a drinking version by replacing losing clothing with taking shots.
I can’t see what the problem is, honestly. Back then, I said the dungeons were almost ready and I’d be releasing them next month; they are, indeed, still almost done and still releasing next month. I am a thoroughly consistent person.
in all seriousness tho, this is getting pretty ridic and i’ll have to delve back into the sick mess that is dungeons.js to hopefully salvage something playable, but that’ll be after the prestige update (which is underway). i still have tons of neat ideas for dungeons and by golly they will make it into the game somehow

I love this
Tally Hall is the best. Ever.
Ah, the Vatican. Heart of Catholicism and centuries of terrible decisions. We decided to walk from our humble abode near the Colosseum to Vatican City. For those of you not familiar with the distance, it’s a bit of a hike. Not a tough walk, mind you, it’s only about fourty-five minutes. However,…
Shoulda gone up the dome :P
I finally got my copy of SLASH: Romance Without Boundaries in the mail, and I’m so excited to play it!
For those of you who don’t know, SLASH is a card game similar to Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity—but with fan shipping!
Playing SLASH is really simple:
"Everybody gets a hand of their favorite characters from pop culture, history, and literature. The matchmaker selects one from her hand and places it face up on the table. Each player in turn selects a possible 'ship for that character hoping that the matchmaker chooses theirs. But, if she doesn’t you can always narrate the tale of this destined connection to win the favor of the table and overrule the matchmaker.” (Source)
Whoever has the best ‘ship for the matchmaker’s card gets the matchmaker’s card and wins the round!
But don’t worry about not knowing the characters, shows, and what have you. I was worried about that at first too when I first played it last year, but SLASH has a surprisingly vast array of characters from things like Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Disney, Mass Effect, Star Wars, Godzilla, Rocky Horror’s Picture Show, and more. There’s not a lot of characters from anime, but there’ll definitely be quite a few you’ll recognize. Heck, it even has people from real life! (Hello Alex Trebek.)
On a similar note, SLASH also has a pretty diverse range of characters from all kinds of nationalities, races, ethnicity, cultures, genders, sexual orientations, worlds, and even species! There’re no underaged characters (for obvious reasons), but you still have a lot of shipping options. Each card comes with the character’s name, what show, book, etc. they’re from, their gender, and a short description.
Things can also get as steamy and raunchy as you, or you could keep things innocent and PG. It all depends on the players’ imaginations really, so whatever floats your boat. *Wink wink. Nudge nudge.*
SLASH is supposed to be around 45 minutes, but you can play as long as you like or until one player reaches a set amount of cards (as in Apples to Apples and Cards Against Humanity). The game requires at least three players, but the more players there are, the longer the game is. So the more the merrier!
With so much diversity and flexibility, SLASH is really all about great story-telling. But it not only pushes you to be imaginative and creative but also to think critically about your choice, hone your debate skills, and expand your knowledge about popular culture, history, and literature, which is all a nice way of saying you’ll have a crazy, fun time yelling passionately about your OTP at bunches of other people screaming passionately about theirs. Woo!
If you’d really like to own this game but don’t have the $25 + shipping to buy it, don’t sweat it! SLASH also has their own print-and-play version in their shop so you can join in on the fun regardless.
If you’re thinking of buying SLASH anyway, great! But be warned: Shipping took forever. I ordered it from the Kickstarter last year in October I think, but it didn’t get here until today! Fortunately, Games by Play Date kept us inform about SLASH's status, and the print-and-play version was always an option anyway, so it was no biggie.
But it’s finally here! It came in a simple white 7” X 5” box wrapped in plastic with four similarly plastic-wrapped decks of 100 alphabetized cards and a small double-sided sheet with directions. It’s definitely light and small enough to carry it around, so bringing it to parties is a whole lot easier. So with that in mind, I’ll definitely bring it by CSF sometime soon. It’s going to be a riot!
If you want to contact, support, or learn more about the creators of SLASH, just visit the Games by Play Date website, but methinks this fun little card they included in the game describes them—and the crazy fun that is SLASH—pretty well…
I NEED THIS!
I really hope there’s a Sean Connery card to go with that Alex Trebek
