  1. That being said, I suspect there is an attraction between Tedd and Nanase (the "ugly cousin" reaction seems too theatrical to be natural) but that both know good reason not to pursue a relationship upon this. (That being said, views on cousin marriage vary widely across space and time, but I'm probably toeing the line already so I won't discuss further.) That being said, at what point does selfcest stop being masturbation and start being incest? The TVTropes page quotes the following: That being said, that's purely as pertains to time travel, which does not occur in EGS. That being said, I should probably stop now before I give myself a headache.
  2. This one for everyone, but particularly @mlooney considering you were the main input to the original proposal. As it stands, this is what the graph looks like. Noah (and hence Melissa) was added pursuant to comments on Discord, otherwise it is more or less as the discussion left off. Any new suggestions to how this should be adjusted now? (For reference, iirc tOH's case-rulings state that suggesting incestuous relationships for "mere titillation" is frowned upon, but the thread where Hack actually stated that was probably pre crash.)
  3. Okay so where does this fall?
  4. Reminds me of my sister telling me how veganism is discriminatory against non-animal life forms. (I don't share that view, although I'm not a vegan either.) But yeah, back on topic, I think it's reasonable that an animal could express a desire for or against something. Might be difficult to prove though.
  5. Context for anyone who needs it.
  6. "The idea that boys want to sleep with their mothers strikes most men as the silliest thing they have ever heard. Obviously, it did not seem so to Freud, who wrote that as a boy he once had an erotic reaction to watching his mother dressing. But Freud had a wet-nurse, and may not have experienced the early intimacy that would have tipped off his perceptual system that Mrs. Freud was his mother. The Westermarck theory has out-Freuded Freud." -- Steven Pinker, quoted by Wikipedia.
  7. Due respect. What that means could be debated at length.
  8. Appears to mean "ceiling light". Well, "celestial flower lamp" if you're going by the ideographic breakdown.
  9. In case anyone hasn't cottoned on yet, this is a fine thread.
  10. Today's xkcd is my screenshot collection in a nutshell (nearing eleven-thousand and largely unorganised).
  11. I have perhaps slightly different opinions on the matter… We've found ourselves in a state with the PNG group pushing MNG (Multi-image Network Graphics), Mozilla pushing APNG (Animated Portable Network Graphics), Google pushing Animated WebP (animated Web Picture) and everyone using either Animated GIF (animated Graphics Interchange Format) or WebM (Web Matroska video). Now, GIF has been superseded by PNG in all other respects (hence in the vernacular "GIF" now implies an animation). PNG is in general superior: it has better compression; it supports true-colour colour-depth without arcane hacks. The GIF format should be a quaint format supported for compatibility but which noöne uses for new images anymore. But it isn't, due to the animation use. Why GIF? It was simple. If wasn't that much work to add animation support to a GIF decoder. Hence everyone supported it. And noöne managed to come out in time with a replacement that everyone could agree on. Should PNG have come out with something akin to APNG from the start? They had their reasons not to (wanting whether an image is animated or not to be discernable from its extension). Should Firefox have dropped MNG support? They had their reasons to (was the size of the other image decoders combined, and if nothing else the initial purpose of Firefox was to create a slimmed down browser based on the Netscape sources). But the effect is that GIF is now the vernacular for a short, silent animated image, while it should have fallen out of use about a decade ago. Maybe MNG should have been designed to be simpler to start with, even if still nominally distinct from PNG. I don't know, but (edit: if so) that might mean (edit: that the reason why) it failed (edit: is) for the same reason as GNU Hurd failed: failure to abide by the KISS principle. But be whatever however, I'd say that the fact that GIFs are still in active use for anything (animated or otherwise) speaks volumes of the failure to supersede it. Should Google be pushing WebP? Certainly the usage case seems to have changed: no longer are animated GIFs pixel art or simple digital artwork, they are now generally photographic footage, something which the GIF format full stop was never supposed to be used for even pre-PNG (granted MNG has JNG (hence JPEG) frame support but that isn't much use if noöne supports it). It is, however, something that the codec used by WebM/WebP is doubtless better at. On the other hand, it relies on WebP actually taking off much. Something needs to take over from GIF and to do that, it needs to gain comparable momentum. If this ends up splitting vendors between APNG and WebP, neither would be likely to take off. Drawing a distinction between WebM and WebP is still valuable though. When something is a GIF, people can be confident that it will not make noise and will usually only take a few seconds. This is not so with video files, in spite of HTML5 and WebM having removed much of the technical barrier to using videos more, and in spite of them being technically capable of fulfilling that role. All that being said, WebM seems to be the de facto successor as far as Gfycat is concerned. And Imgur at least in the past, although they seem to be adopting WebP for some purpose and to some degree. And then there's Ugoira, for the sake of completeness… This is of course just my ramblings at present. This is not necessarily representative of my future or past opinion, or of the future, past or present opinion of any vertical or horizontal associate of mine.
  12. Look at those tendrils though. In previous appearances, it seemed like Sirleck merely hooked onto the nose and ears, but those would snake into the head some considerable distance. Creepy stuff. RE loss of forum endorsement, it was several months after the crash, after the forum briefly stopped loading anything except the front page and then came back up with all the images missing and all the post backgrounds turned lavender (in an extended analogy (edit: albeit non-literal and of an analogy which was also literal to begin with), would this be considered an aftershock??? meanwhile **** you 2016). Incidentally, that was also the last straw inasmuch as I gave up on hoping that the CSS would be fixed (when it was getting progressively worse) and wrote a script to patch it myself.
  13. I've made some adjustments to try and make the colour override for the post backgrounds kick in faster, does this help?
