I like to think that Howl and Calcifer just sat down and had tea and a chat once in a while. You would too if your fireplace were a sentient fire demon. It’s one of the perks.
(Super late submission to ghibli jam, which I only found out about at 10PM last night (!) Process on twitter soon.)
How To Read A 223-Page Novel In Just 77 Minutes
Spritz is a company that makes a speed-reading technology which allows you to get through a mass of text, reading every word, in a fraction of the time it would take if you were turning the pages of a book or swiping through a Kindle.
The basis of Spritz concept is that much of the time spend reading is “wasted” on moving your eyes from side to side, from one word to the next. By flashing the words quickly, one after the other, all in the same place, eye movement is reduced almost to zero. All that’s left is the time you take to process the word before the next one appears.
The company is selling licenses for other companies who might want to use the technology in operating systems, applications, wearables, and websites. Obviously, the tiny screen of a smart watch instantly springs to mind.
But the real revelation of Spritz is in trying it yourself.
I have Dark Souls 2
Its in my lap right now
On the way to the store some memories came back to me
Coming back from the store with Dark Souls 1, hiding it from my grandparents so they wouldn’t yell at me for buying a “new” game
Playing it on the shitty tv in my grandparents’ basement, barely being able to read the text. I remember getting hype as fuck after watching the intro.
I remember my first time in blighttown, getting lost for hours. Now I can run through it in like 5 minutes.
Dark Souls changed my life for the better, because of it I met Maddie. She’s probably the greatest person I’ve ever met. I love her so much.
God, I love all of you people. I love the fans, I love the community. Even the hackers. They kept it fresh, at least for a while. Killing a hacker for the first time was like killing a boss, except you knew they were shitting themselves with rage on the other end, or just going “wooooooow”. Hilarious.
I spoiled parts of the game for myself, I won’t pretend I didn’t use a walkthrough for blighttown. I’m not doing that with dark souls 2. I’m going to be pure.
I love these games, I love that it let me meet my girlfriend, I love that I can be a sappy fuck over it, no other game gives me emotions like this.
From Software, thank you so much.
Adapt to this
LET ME JUST POINT OUT THE VARIOUS FLAWS OF LOGIC HERE. FIRST OF ALL DARWINS POWER IS TO LITERALLY ADAPT TO ANYTHING IN THE EFFING UNIVERSE. HIS POWERS DEEMED IT TOO DANGEROUS TO FIGHT THE HULK AND TELEPORTED HIM TO ANOTHER COUNTRY. HE ONCE BECAME PURE COSMIC EFFING ENERGY AND SHORTLY AFTER REMATERIALIZED AS A HUMAN BEING TO PREVENT HIS DEATH. DARWIN IS LITERALLY INEFFINGVINCIBLE. AND YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT A PATHETIC BALL OF KINETIC ENERGY FROM SEBASTIAN SHAW MERKS HIM?!?!?! THEY OBVIOUSLY ARE OUT TO KILL THE BLACK MAN IN THE PLOT AND LITERALLY WROTE THIS SCENE WITH NO REGARDS TO DARWINS POWERS WHATSOEVER AND ITS FRUSTRATING THAT THEY WOULD GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO KILL HIM OFF LIKE THAT
I’m saying. Even in sci fi we ain’t safe
in my headcanon darwin literally became a being of energy and ascended to another plain of existence so he doesn’t have to deal with anymore of this white nonsense
Even in Scifi? We not safe in real life.
thank you I’ve been saying this for the longest!!!!! He is a damn omega level mutant, meaning in the movie he would be a class 5! Dude even adapted into a God and became the God of Death! Dude was college educated in the comics and they made him a taxi driver…like Black folks weren’t educated in the 70’s. And they didn’t even acknowledge that he was an Afro Latino…his name is Armando Munoz, he’s one of the few Afro latino superheros and they did him so dirty.
A movie that’s a metaphor for prejudice/racism/etc did the black guy dirty.
Yep. This was some white nonsense for real
And literally 2 minutes before that, the long, lingering shot on Darwin with Shaw’s “live like slaves” line. *rolls eyes*
And they cut the after-credits scene where he was SUPPOSED to come back in his ultimate form.
It was complete bullshit.
Not to mention the only other Black person on the team became a villain.
That movie is such a goddamn mess
Haha, so fun fact: in X-factor the team runs into Darwin, and at first they are confused because he’s looks different then they remembered, his skin is lighter! They discuss this, and come to the conclusion that his power detected racism as a threat to his life and lightened his skin so that he’d pass as white.
When he joins the group and feels like he has a safer and more welcoming community his skin starts to darken again.
It’s nice when X-men and spinoffs remember that the mutants are supposed to be a metaphor.
is that Doug Dimmadome, owner of the Dimmsdale Dimmadome?
I think that is Doug Dimmadome, owner of the Dimmsdale Dimmadome, eating a Dimmsdale Dimmacone
Well I’ll be Dimmadamned.
dreams Dimmado come true
I’m so Dimmadone
