Bullets slow down exponentially in water. They caught a dolphin and then shot it to death on land.

“There are differing accounts on whether Nikolsky remains hospitalized or whether he has been taken into police custody. REN-TV and Mash report that he has been detained, while Baza is reporting that he is still receiving treatment in a hospital.”

You can still be detained while being in the hospital.

That would hurt so much. Their tongues lick meat from bone.

    My Mom’s been trying to get that done for years, but we live in 'Merica. Her insurance considered it cosmetic, even though it has a health impact, like you said.

    I was surprised they gave her the bellyband, and that’s actually really helped. She’s never had a terrible diet, but she was pushing 300lb +. I’m a foot taller than her, and I weigh 145lb for reference.

    She now weighs 165lb, I believe; It’s a sensitive topic. She still has to cover herself in baby powder and wears compression EVERYTHING (pants, sleeves, etc…) to hide her folds. God damn the American Healthcare system.

    If anyone is wondering: yes, people use real photos as a reference for their background art. In anime/ manga, they’ll often trace and then use watercolor/ digital art/ ink.

    Berserk has a whole host of real-world inspirations that are really neat. Here’s an example:

    One Punch Man has a lot of IRL tracing aswell.

    I smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol. I’m an unhealthy addict. Obesity is a disease that shouldn’t be shamed, like any other addiction/ condition. It should definitely be acknowledged/ treated, though.

    If you look up “Couch Desk” they have a lot of similar options. Some that look even better. I use a lap desk personally.

    Don’t use it to eat and watch TV, or you’ll NEVER use your kitchen table again.

    I have a similar scenario. Half-life 3 comes out: “TAKE ME OUT OF THIS SIMULATION, DEMON!”.

    Fungi are more related to animals than plants. Fungi produce “flesh.”

    Sea anemones are a group of predatory marine invertebrates constituting the order Actiniaria. Because of their colourful appearance, they are named after the Anemone, a terrestrial flowering plant. Sea anemones are classified in the phylum Cnidaria, class Anthozoa, subclass Hexacorallia. As cnidarians, sea anemones are related to corals, jellyfish, tube-dwelling anemones, and Hydra. Unlike jellyfish, sea anemones do not have a medusa stage in their life cycle.

    They’re a “plant” on the edge of creating a neural system while also producing “flesh.”

    Edit: Jesus Christ, people. If you buy a $150 Thinkpad made by slave labor instead of a $1,200 MacBook made by slave labor, you’re still supporting a capitalist economy based on slave labor. We all do. We have no choice. The number of smug liberals in the comments saying “well I buy a cheap used laptop” or “well I buy...

    Asus > Lenovo

    They’re very similar, but you get to support Taiwan with Asus. You don’t have a pointing stick, though; if that’s something you care about. The hardware is also similar, but Lenovo generally has better cases/ outershells, but Asus also outperforms them on price point and internal hardware and software.

    I’m down with that, too. Depends on your needs, though.

    Xanthrax,

    Yes! Here’s one example: www.asus.com/us/laptops/…/asus-br1402c/

    Like I said, they don’t offer as many external accessories, but they’re pretty close.

    This is coming from someone who grew up using thinkpads. If I were to buy a used laptop for something personal, I’d go with a thinkpad. If I have to buy something new, it’s Asus.

    Same experience. They’re trying to turn education into a pyramid scheme.

    If you share an ISP with a conservative (roomates), and the ISP sends you mail because you forgot your VPN, they will scream at you like you stole a car, and they’re harboring a fugitive.

    Supersets and subsets are pretty simple, and I wish more people would use them when contextualizing human knowledge. (Especially supersets)

    @Xanthrax@lemmy.world avatar

    I agree; that’s why I’m disappointed.

    @Xanthrax@lemmy.world avatar

    Thank you! This may be helpful for my sister in the future.

    Personally, I’m a non-religious person, and I’m against organized religion. I still feel empathetic towards everyone being persecuted in this video, though.
