Casual reminder that if you don’t like Treasure Planet, you are abjectly WRONG.

Franky’s hair changes styles in One Piece Unlimited World Red!

I was wondering where the option to do so was, because it wasn’t a style option in the Costumes Menu  (just shades up or shades down)  and then I’m standing around in a mission and Franky reaches up and *boop*  presses his own nose. His hair changes.

When Idle, Franky cycles his hair through three different styles and it stays that way until he gets bored of it again.  This is the most crucial feature I could ask for in any One Piece game.

5/5 stars, game of the year, right here.

It really baffles me how often people confuse “Training and Memorization” for “Skill and Intelligence”.

An animal isn’t smart because you can train it to get rewarded if it does a thing. A person isn’t skilled or smart because they can win at a predictable, unchanging game after practicing it for thousands of hours and learning all the charts and exploits.  These things can be replicated by a simple machine or computer program.

Instead, show me the animal that can figure out something it’s never encountered;  Brag to me when YOU kick ass at a game you’ve only been playing for a couple of hours. THAT is the test of Skill and Intelligence.

So I intend to watch a certain movie I just got on Blu-Ray tomorrow..

 

And I’m thinking, “I need an appropriate drink to accompany this”

Seeing as it’s a pirate movie, perhaps some rum?  But I don’t want to sip a shot here and there and spend the rest of the movie parched, so maybe I’ll take that rum and stretch it into something like Grog or Bumbo

Maybe I could even go a step further, and try to “space up” either recipe somehow?

Any tumblr mixologists have a preferred Grog or Bumbo recipe to share, or suggestions for a sci-fi twist?

Oh damn is that 2-for-1 3DS game deal at Best Buy for real?

Shit.. I definitely want Link Between Worlds but I’m not sure if I’m really interested in anything else on that list.. like I know everyone’s crazy about that Tomodachi Life game but I’m not certain I’d personally get that much amusement out of watching little Miis obsess over patriarchal family values and randomness..   Bravely Default is supposed to be good, but I’ve barely even played my copy of Fire Emblem Awakening.. not sure about the Kirby game or the Yoshi’s Island remake either, and I already have Pokemon X

HMMMMMMmmmmm… I guess I could always get an extra copy of Pokemon and gift/resell it to a friend, or something.  :?

Don’t Cry For Me, Arthropoda: Studies Find Signs of Emotion in Spiders
Individual spiders have character and personality, according to a paper published by theProceedings of the Royal Society B. The paper, titled Individual personalities shape task differentiation in a social spider, gives details of a study into role allocation in spider societies.It was previously assumed that individuals in social spider communities contributed homogenously, with all tasks, such as prey capture and colony defence, being performed equally by members.The study focused on Stegodyphus sarasinorum, a permanently social spider occurring in India and some surrounding countries. Led by Lena Grinsted of Aarhus University in Denmark, over 600 spiders were marked and observed, with tests singling out boldness and aggression. Variances in response showed that individuals were suited to particular roles. 
Individuals in the test group were highly related and of approximately the same age: the only variable was apparently their personality. The study suggests that task allocation is the result of character traits in individual spiders; personality does not appear to be shaped by random selection of task perfomance, therefore.Character and personality are often attributed only to humans, higher order mammals, and birds. Now it appears that arthropods also have responses that could be considered emotional.

The great Vegemite scandal of 2014

Ha ha ha so apparently I’m not the only person who tried getting Vegemite imported through Amazon.com and got screwed over..

In fact, EVERYONE whose order was allegedly shipped from “Australia Club” never received their product.  Not only is the distributor not responding to claims filed against them, they pulled out of the Amazon marketplace altogether.  In every sense of the word, they took a lot of folks’ money and ran.

But has Amazon refunded my seven american dollars yet, or contracted some other distributor to mail me some damn Vegemite? Nope!   >:(

A very good way of going about explaining this issue. It’s good to see something positive come from Tumblr.

HOLY SHIT. THIS. THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE. SHUT YOUR MOUTH ABOUT MEN VS WOMEN. @_@

this is literally so important

I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.

Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patients up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon who’s abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!

I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.

This is so cute. I like the detail of the little vests and such, like a helper dog.. presumably to prevent trainers from showing up every ten steps like “I see you have a Pokemon!  LET’S BATTLE, I choose you, level 99 moltres!”

How much would it cost for some of that ultra-black material fashioned into sweatbands?

Like.. a LOT of sweatbands.

Like minimum of six per limb I have a need, okay?

90 days ago.  90 days ago I ordered a jar of vegemite to be shipped from Australia to me in the U.S., as an add-on to an Amazon.com order.

It has yet to arrive. :(

Why you holding out on me, Australia?  I paid seven bucks for your infamous savory toast spread, so… just give it to me already.
