Realistic Historical Sword Fighting
Shoutout to the fuckwits who think longswords were all about random hacking and slashing.
You mean there are people who don’t understand the nuances of a weapon that’s been obsolete for a thousand years?
…that being said, this is a really useful reference, and I’ll probably make use of it the next time I write a swordfight. …which is actually coming up pretty soon if I actually start working on this piece of crap again. *sigh*
So there’s this guy at work, and I’m not going to use his name because I don’t want anyone to find out about this. This guy is the dude who’s always talking about how he wants a girlfriend but he doesn’t have one because he’s awkward in social situations. I kind of assumed his romantic experiences were limited, but today some of my other co-workers were talking and it turns out awkward guy had been married before. He and his wife had agreed that he would work while she finished school, and once she got her degree she would work while he went back to school and got his.
Then one day he comes home from class and without ever giving any indication as to what was going to happen she’d changed all the locks. She won’t answer the door. He’s just left outside with nothing. He had to go stay with his parents. They got a divorce so presumably they interacted in some fashion afterwards but as far as anyone knows she never explained why she just up an ended their marriage with no warning. Presumably she’d gotten what she wanted.
That’s some of the coldest shit I have ever heard. What is wrong with people.
Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?
not gonna lie that still looks intimately real
It’s interesting to look back at Jurassic Park in this day and age. The sauropods come off as fakey-fake, but the T-Rex is still 100% convincing.
As I recall, the sauropods in the movie were almost entirely CGI, while they actually built a life-size animatronic T-Rex for this scene. I think CGI ages so badly because it’s constantly getting better and more realistic. Compared to what we have today CGI that used to be jaw-dropping is now kind of meh in comparison. Practical effects, on the other hand, can’t get any more practical. It looks real because it is a real, physical object, and it’s never going to get any less real. If you put in the time and effort to make it a good prop (and the Jurassic Park T-Rex was fucking state of the art), then it’ll still be a good prop 21 years later.
Shit. Jurassic Park was 21 years ago. I have to go eat some prunes.
… so I’m not the only person who thinks that Zaheer with his head shaved looks a hell of a lot like an adult Meelo, right?
Just throwing that out there.

Story of Haruka and Feebas
Haruka met Feebas when he was young. He finally evolved when Haru is Grade 12, but he was too big to stay at home. In the end, Haru decided to let him live in the sea. Milotic was very sad that he can’t stay with Haru and take a bath with him life before. So Haru stopped by sea everyday to see him.
