old memes are getting out of control trying to compete to be the next popular one again
the ultimate showdown, of ultimate destiny
“We recommend washing wild mushrooms as little as possible to avoid making them soggy.”
'Whether this care would take the form of courtesy or intensive imprisonment she couldn't be certain.'
(feel free to delete) “She had never told on us, had never played cat-and-mouse with us, she was not at all interested in our private lives.”
"I should head home actually," I said. I’m getting kinda tired."
Thank goodness it wasn’t another page because it was TFiOS.
"Yeah, what’s wrong with it?"

THE DOG BEHIND THE “DOGE” MEME IS A PUPPY MILL SURVIVOR - “She was a pedigreed dog from a puppy mill, and when the puppy mill closed down, she was abandoned along with 19 other Shiba dogs…”
A Shiba Inu in Japan named Kabosu was one of 19 dogs in a puppy mill. Many of the others were killed, but Kabosu was rescued and adopted by a woman named Atsuko Sato. She posted some pictures of Kabosu online and somehow the pictures became the “doge” meme (along with another Shiba Inu). Read more from Kyle Chaka at The Verge:
The furry face that launched a thousand quips nearly never made it to the web. Sato adopted Kabosu from an animal shelter in November, 2008, saving her from certain death. “She was a pedigreed dog from a puppy mill, and when the puppy mill closed down, she was abandoned along with 19 other Shiba dogs,” the teacher explained. “Some of them were adopted, but the rest of them were killed.”
“Kabosu is very different from the typical temperament of Shiba,” Sato explained. “She’s very gentle and calm; she loves being photographed.” The hundreds of photos on the blog have paid off, and not just on Reddit. Sato started her blog in June, 2009, aiming to raise awareness about the dangers of puppy mills and adopted pets, joining a network of pet blogs where Kabosu quickly found an audience. The site is now the fourth most popular pet blog in Japan, getting around 75,000 hits a month…
Sato does have a goal in mind to take advantage of her dog’s sudden notoriety. “I want more people to know about animal shelters and puppy mills,” she said. “I’d like to give back to them somehow, helping those abandoned animals. It’ll be nice that Kabosu can play that role.”
Kabosu escaped a horrible fate and is thankfully living a much better life, both on and offline. Click here for the full story.

Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any fanfic I’ve written, and stick that selection in my ask/fan mail. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what’s going on in the character’s heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
It’s definitely my go-to example for explaining that the uncanny valley effect can absolutely apply to nonhuman animals

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN!
An epic trilogy of games set in the far future, where your decisions carry over from game to game. It’s a WRPG with shooty bits, leaning more to the shooty bits as the series goes on. You play as a human with a background you choose at the start of the first game, and while you’re always the hero of the story, you can choose between being a nice hero and a mean one (although sometimes the way the game calculates nice/mean can be a little wat-shaped), and you’re, um, some kind of space cop for the government, I think. And as a space cop you’re trying to stop the abusive precursors - giant like SMALL MOON GIANT robots who show up to eat organic life every so often, absorbing their knowledge to create another moon robot.
With you are an interstellar team of various sapient creatures! At least once a game there is a suicide mission and some of them will die unless you look up a guide. Oh! And the finale of the third game was handled super badly, I hear, but the developers tried to make it better with DLC.
LOTS OF ALIEN SPECIES: there’s these really tough frog things with four testes who got hit with an engineered virus that makes most of them sterile, a robot who’s AI is really a mass of AIs and he’s called Leigon in a biblical reference and no one trusts him at first because AIs are seen as Automatically Dodgy because they keep getting corrupted by the moon robots, and this one blue reptillian guy I keep seeing who I think is cute and he seems nice. I associate him with Rundas for some reason? Like they could have a space beer with each other. Also the one guy who looks kind of like your steriotypical ‘grey alien’ from Area 51 did a parody of “The Major General Song” once.
Uh, there’s also a race who can interbreed with any other sapient species and they live a hella long time, and in their culture being a purebreed is like being the product of incest and a major no-no. Naturally you have a purebreed one on your team. Also the jellyfish dudes who refer to themselves as ‘this one’ and never give out their names to other species. OH AND THERE’S ONE SPECIES WHO COMMUNICATES VIA SCENT SO THEY HAVE TO ADD TAGS TO THEIR SPEECH LIKE ‘delighted greeting.’ BECAUSE THEY OTHERWISE SOUND MONOTONE TO THE TRANSLATORS.
…Most of what I know about Mass Effect is that it has a lot of cool aliens in it
Osmosis it is:
It’s about this genetically engineered supersoldier with the rank of Master Chief and his snarky AI partner as they fight an alien menace called the Flood. He does have a name but I can’t remember it. David? Adam?
Anyway, the Flood are either trying to take over a colony world and make their way to Earth, or they’re some kind of fanatical alien cult or something. Halos are part of their religious motifs and/or teleportals for the FTL in the franchise. Master Chief is not the only such supersoldier
and one time one of the other supersoldiers, this one a woman, fought and then made out with Samus, as chronicled in Haloid.
Also IIRC it was either the game that introduced or made popular regenerating health in FPSes, except it did a better job of justifying it than most of its imitators because it was specifically MC’s shield that was regenning and health didn’t regen.
