    So a little while ago I started using Robinhood to do a bit of armature investing...

    ... and right now about the only thing that's doing well is Dogecoin. I can't even make this shit up.

    Edit: no, I'm not gonna consider my dogecoin as real investments, as I intend to spend/gift them down the line...

    Pretty much everything except Disney and retailers like Wal-mart and Costco is down. Give it some time to settle into the new status quo/see what the damage is from the nationwide shutdowns and then if you have some money that you can invest put it into something that you don't expect to disappear in 50 years. Then settle in for the long haul because if you make the right call you should double your money if not more.

    So there’s a Japanese superstition that if you pee on a worm, your “worm” will swell up and become terribly itchy.

    ...Except it’s apparently not a superstition. There’s a japanese worm that, when alarmed (such as if an idiot started peeing on it), releases poison that is actually capable of traveling up a stream of urine into an idiot’s dick, causing swelling and itchiness.

    Watched ‘Girl, Interrupted’ yesterday, fun/interesting movie. Watching/reading stories that takes place in asylums generally are always enjoyable in some way, even if they’re almost always kinda horrific/awful.

    I keep forgetting we have a SFW section. I keep saying that I hope it gets more popular and gets more content but then I always forget to check it.

    -sees that pornhub is offering free premium service world wide to spread awareness for people to stay at home, as well as donating money for sex workers that can't work due to the virus and money for making more masks for hospital workers-


    -patiently waits for streaming services like netflix, hulu, Disney and everywhere else to do something similar-

    -will likely be dead by old age before that happens.-

    Pornhub is a decent service with a god-tier PR team.

    I got sent video by my brother of my niece and nephew playing. (7 and 6 years old) Apparently they saw a clip of Scarface on Youtube and then stuck their faces into a bag of flour and chased each other around with toy guns laughing and being very cute. So much for violent movies traumatizing kids, eh?

    They did get in trouble for getting flour all over the place tho.

    It really doesn't (WIth live porn, at any rate), given that a lot of the time the people involved are some combination of miserable and exploited, and the fact that people don't pay for porn anymore has lead to a hilariously poor paygrade for pornstars.

    But with enough PR, you can make it look like it does.

    I've been wondering, are there any general QQ community discords? I've been on the irc a few times but I often fall out of it due to too many chat clients.

    The QQ FGO Discord sort of developed into that at one point, though it has since gotten a lot smaller again. If you just want to chat or discuss fic ideas though, feel free to swing on by.

    Just found out I can manually disable email notifications in my thread watch list, very helpful. Maybe one of these days that email won’t be so overflowing and become useful again.

    So... imagine a movie that played out more or less just like a zombie apocalypse movie, except instead of zombies, it's hordes of bears.

    I'd watch the hell out of that.

    Bears are tired of losing their environment to humans and developed a virus to overwrite the dna of the competition to show the true kings of the world.

    Just tried some kangaroo jerky. I am disappointed. It was pretty much like any other mildly spicy jerky.

    So... the owner of gelbooru appears to gone to war with his server host.

    https://twitter.com/gelbooru/status/1266299616204427264

    And what they say on the site.

    I mean, the dude is being passive agressive to a supporter even.

    Who asked him to not post cringy gifs and they said they will use cring level 2000 ones instead.

    I honestly, don't care about this really but the gelbooru guy kinda seems like a major dick for that.

    No idea if this belongs in the rants or not however. Don't even know where to put it if it does. A general rant thread probably wouldn't be popular.

    So I am not sure if this is the right place to ask about perks in jump-docs and CYOA's if it is not I will delete this post... Does anyone know if there is a Perk that can destroy your own Soul if it were to be altered, changed, enslaved, or aded to collective of others against your will?
    I rather be completely destroyed/killed.

    Just get a perk that prevents that instead.

    Like the willpower perk from a doctor who jump.

    Much easier than just offing yourself when anything corrupts you.

    You don’t need to delete this post (you’ve got your answer anyway), but this thread probably has a greater collection of knowledgeable users about this kind of thing:

    Sometimes i feel like I'm going insane when my memories don't match up with reality. For example i bought a book around two years ago and read part of it before getting interrupted by real life stuff and I always kept forgetting to finish it until now. I decided to start it from the beginning again since it had been so long only to discover that the book is missing a prologue that I swear remember reading and that its in first person rather than third.
