Title: Fantasy Memes and silly stuff (about books) from the internet

Based on the one with Kermit (https://40.media.tumblr.com/e9fb6e6349cd066b7645d39cd50a0855/tumblr_nk8j6wZkSU1rv231do1_500.jpg).

My guess: HP Lovecraft.

What? Not everyone instantly recognizes Lovecrafts incredibly photogenic face?

Are you going to tell me not everyone has read all his famous stories?  :D

I haven't read any...! (http://www.imageupload.co.uk/images/2015/03/11/ehehe.gif)

A friend has a few games that reference a ton of Lovecraft stuff (or so he says), some are pretty awesome. One that we played the other day was a card game with transparent cards that you put on top of each other to modify them... Cthulhu Gloom or something? Really good game. :)

If any of you have not seen the movie Galaxy Quest it's required viewing. It's a send up of Star Trek and fandom in general. Wonderful moment of "Look Im not stupid, I know the characters in the story aren't real." "Yes they are." "I knew it!"

Kvothe memes. They're a thing.

Can I just show my age and say that I thought a meme was a replicating idea (as in biology), instead of (as I apparently am seeing) images/photos with silly sayings? :-[

So when I entered this thread I was expecting to see fantasy subjects replicated through different books: for example someone would say "benign wizard" and then we'd list the books where they appear (LotR, HP, Belgariad) or where they're subverted (First Law).

Meme has been co-opted by the social net to be just what you see.

Meanwhile, there are some fascinating science fiction treatments of memes as mental viruses (ideas, not biology). But mostly we get icanhas.cheezburger.com/lolcats (http://icanhas.cheezburger.com/lolcats).

Well, image memes are really just a specific special case of memes. Because most of the times they are the same joke repeated over and over with miniscule variations. Many show up only once or twice and never get a hold in the public consciousness (and go extinct), while others are extremely well suited for massive spread. And they are kept fresh and do not get forgotten and boring by constantly undergoing slight mutations.

Not My Business Bilbo is a mutation of Not My Business Kermit.

And if you know Philosoraptor you would also recognize the Philosoflumph (http://ddemotivators.tumblr.com/tagged/philosoflumph) (who asks paradoxical questions about fantasy roleplaying games):

Gosh, I almost wanted to post this one on the Depression thread, given that a few of us here seem to be of the anxious type, and all of us are readers of course, and some probably geek, and most generally attracted to dragons... Or even on the dragon art thread, but I reckon it belongs here.
It makes me laugh each time but damn it's also sad, I want to hug that poor dragon!  ;D

So you're a grammar nazi ice cream eating dragon!
Oreo sounds amazing, I'm on macadamia and honey now.
Feeling fully entitled to all that ice cream these days given I've officially biked more than 500km this month! \o/

I have to admit I had to think twice about it, after overcoming the shock of finding out there are spider farms >:( >:(
I wonder where that is, if it's anywhere near me...

*googling*
Oh *breathes sigh of relief* it's a photoshoped sign :D there is actually a spider farm, but it's in America (Vermont) and nowhere near a nuclear plant hehe

This one is true, though ;D

I think it's a bit of a fallacy that Sean Bean dies in everything he's in. He probably dies onscreen more than most actors do, but he's well known for playing Richard Sharpe in the TV series and Sharpe is one of fiction's great survivors. He also didn't die in Troy where he played Odysseus. It's rare that Bond villains (apart from Blofeld and Mr White) survive the film.

Calvin and Hobbes were so so clever. We never really got the dailies down here until late in the piece and I found a collection by accident at a local comic store. I loved them, and later on Lejays17 discovered my collections and became hooked too. He was one of the few recent cartoonists that Charles Schulz really admired.

Thanks for enquiring Justan! I have been a bit down in the dumps for a while after the worst of my flu, it was kind of odd, a little moment in time that was a sort of a blank slate, I had no social life, couldn't really go anywhere or do anything but sit at home and think stuff over, and got anxious about my future and quite lonely.
It didn't take long for things to pick back up, I'm trying to smother the thoughts of the upcoming doom of one of the longest flights in the world - to a plane phobiac it's just Hell - and I've rebuilt a pretty gratifying social life, though very sadly I'm giving a lot of my time and best feelings over to a french man who is bound to leave the country in a couple of months. Making a good friend out of the bloke just in time for him to break my heart by leaving. As we discussed previously isn't it?

And Elfy, yes I've seen Scalzi's book cover and chuckled at it but didn't put him on my TBR pile really, though it'll stay at the back of my head if I ever want a light read.

Here my big laugh of the week. I just love it.

I just did my part in preserving this wonderful manifesto of devoted Star Wars fans for future generations by putting it on my website, and reading it again made me feel like I also have to share it here.

Quote
By: Adam Summers 5/23/05

My girlfriend doesn’t understand what I see in Star Wars. We’ve had several soul-crushing arguments about what exactly makes this series so important to me, and every time I have found it more and more difficult to argue my case. As the maddening years have wound on, I think I finally understand the reason for this crippling handicap.

There is a diabolical twist to Star Wars fandom, you see, that defies comprehension, and yet is the life-blood of all Star Wars fans. It is this:

Star Wars fans hate Star Wars.

If you run into somebody who tells you they thought the franchise was quite enjoyable, and they very-much liked the originals as well as the prequels, and even own everything on DVD, and a few of the books, these imposters are not Star Wars Fans.

Star Wars fans hate Star Wars.

The primary fulcrum for the Star Wars fan’s hate (including my own) is George Lucas, creator of Star Wars. Unlike Trekkies/Trekkers who adore Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, Star Wars fans hate the father of their obsession. We hate the fact that George Lucas got it wrong from the beginning, creating incest between Luke and Leia. We hate the fact that he wrenched Return of the Jedi off of Kashyyyk and set it on Endor with those tiny, furry Hobbit bitches he called “Ewoks”, which is a syllabic anagram of Wookiee if you’re obsessed enough. We despise the entire existence of literally half of the Star Wars movies, blaming George Lucas’ greed and flawed ‘vision’ for everything.

We believe George Lucas’ ideal death time was 2:07am, 14 November, 1990.

Star Wars fans also hate the original Star Wars trilogy. We think Mark Hamill’s acting was whiny, the pacing was flawed, and Empire was better than Jedi, making the end of the series a let-down. We hate the way Boba Fett died, and we hate the cantankerous, arthritic duel between Vader and Obi-wan. We don’t understand why the storm-troopers can’t shoot worth a damn, and we don’t get why “an entire legion of [the Emperor’s] best troops”(ROTJ, Palpatine) can be overpowered by a tribal society of midget teddy-bears armed largely with rocks and twigs. Star Wars fans hate omnipotent war-machines that get their legs tangled in strings, or slip on logs. They hate Darth Vader’s face and that stupid harmonica thing he was playing. Star Wars fans hate the original Star Wars trilogy.

There is also, as you probably know, a series of Special Editions that have replaced the original Star Wars trilogy, and these are also hated by Star Wars fans with an even more scorching fervor. Star Wars fans hate the glaring CG changes made to scenes we already hated to begin with. We hate that Han Solo now killed Greedo in self-defense, and then stepped on Jabba the Hutt’s tail (which we liken to Carrot Top stepping on Fidel Castro’s tail). We hate the fact that the ghost of Alec Guinness (whose name is an anagram of Genuine Class, by the way) now stands next to Hayden Christensen (whose name I tried to re-arrange into a flattering anagram myself, but only came up with “Nn…Dense Chest Hair”). Star Wars fans are unsure if Fidel Castro has a tail or not, but we hate the Special Editions of the trilogy just the same.

There is of course also a prequel trilogy to Star Wars. It is newer, more epic, more expensive, and more visually stunning than the original trilogy. Star Wars fans know this, and so we hate it even more. We hate it with the burning passion of a setting pair of twin suns. Jar Jar Binks, Midichlorians, technology that is blatantly more sophisticated than the “later” original trilogy…we despise all of it. There’s nothing a Star Wars fan hates more than a Star Wars prequel. They demystified Boba Fett, contradicted countless lines in the original trilogy (Obi-Wan: “He was our only hope.” Yoda: “No…there is another.” Obi-Wan (not in script): “Oh, right, I f*cking held both of these kids as they were born in Episode 3. Sorry Yoda, I just plumb forgot!”)

Star Wars fans think Mark Ha…uh…Hayden Christensen’s acting was whiny. And the pacing was flawed.

Beyond the movies, there are also various television-related Star Wars endeavors which Star Wars fans despise. Starting with that abysmal “Holiday Special” in which Carrie Fisher appeared drunk and tried to celebrate Christmas through song in a Jesus-less galaxy, Star Wars fans have watched and hated everything. We think Droids was a waste of time, Ewok Adventures was an extension of everything we hated about Return of the Jedi, and we’ve seen both seasons of Clone Wars which we hate because we believe them to be immensely inconsistent with the prequels we also hate.

Star Wars fans think the Star Wars comic-books are a stockpile of contrivance written for marketing purposes by people who know nothing about Star Wars. Every gimmick imaginable to bring back super-weapons long destroyed and token bad-guys long-beaten is spewed forth from these comic books, and Star Wars fans want nothing to do with it. Star Wars fans have read the one in which Han Solo works in tandem with a giant rabbit and we are not impressed.

Then, naturally, there are the videogames. Star Wars fans hate LucasArts, and the opportunist drivel that comprises most of the gameplay-less apertures known as Star Wars games that they vomit up every fiscal quarter. Star Wars fans know that there is no such thing as a good Star Wars strategy game, we yelled at our PS1 when Masters of Teras-Kasi came out, and we kind-of liked the Jedi Knight series, but not at first and definitely not towards the end. Star Wars fans did not like Knights of the Old Republic, unless they were RPG fans. This does not count. Star Wars fans hate Star Wars videogames.

The final main elixir of Star Wars folklore is the ever-growing library of Star Wars books. These have managed to make a complex main character our of practically every background alien seen in the movies, and expanded the universe into a colossal, self-contradictory maze. Star Wars fans hate this. We hate how trite and tired the books were getting before the New Jedi Order series, and we hate the New Jedi Order series for being so radically different, and not nearly trite or tired enough. Star Wars fans hate it when previously-deceased characters are brought back to life, but we also hate Timothy Zahn for not bringing his characters back to life. Star Wars fans did not hate Grand Admiral Thrawn, but we do now, because he is always dead. The Star Wars movies also contradict and completely ignore droves of information within the Star Wars books. Star Wars fans now know that George Lucas has no idea who Jaster Mareel is, and it makes us very angry. Star Wars fans hate Star Wars books.

Now that I have covered all of this, you can finally begin to compute why I can never prove to Emily that Star Wars is a monumental event worth devoting one’s life to. The very nature of the argument means I have to defend Star Wars, and since I am a Star Wars fan, I don’t actually understand how to do that.

Maybe I’ll put it like this. To be a Star Wars fan, one must possess the ability to see a million different failures and downfalls, and then somehow assemble them into a greater picture of perfection. Every true Star Wars fan is a Luke Skywalker, looking at his twisted, evil father, and somehow seeing good.

My earlier statement needs slight revision. We hate everything about Star Wars.

But the idea of Star Wars…the idea we love.

I can't not put into words how much this is speaking directly from my heart.

Title: Re: Fantasy Memes and silly stuff about books from the internet
Post by: Nora on September 29, 2015, 04:26:31 PM
To give you a broad idea, your C*** word is nothing to us.

HIGHLY VULGAR POST

We call it con. of course women are "conne". Un con means a cunt, and we use it to mean that someone if stupid/retarded/incapable.
We say it about ourselves quite a lot.

"Shiiiit, what a cunt I am!" doesn't mean you're a meanie or a turd. Just a retard. Besides, we have a huge culture of bawdy songs, in which we sing about a woman's sweet "con" in the very first and non-insulting meaning of the word.

So because we don't have an ultimate F or C bomb, no "utmost horror" one can utter, to be insulting in french you need to add up and be creative.

Examples :
In general our insults are really graphic and sex/excrement related.
Our everyday for "fuck!" is putain, the old french word for whore.
So the very typical super-angry Putain de bordel de merde literally means whore of a shitty brothel.

A very agressive insult invite you to "fuck your mom" - Nique ta mere! stabbings have been inflicted for less than that.

Classical one worded insult feature enfoiré or the verb enfoirer it means a traitor, bastard and good for nothing, and comes from the old world for diarrhea. Meaning you're one covered in shit.
Un pet foireux - a turdish fart. A fart you're sure wasn't just air.

It's synonym to emmerder : to cover in shit. Tu m'emmerdes! You're covering me in shit!
Or Je t'emmerde! I cover you in shit.

Then the old word for copulate : foutre has become a vulgar version of the "to do" verb, like in Va foutre la merde ailleurs - Go do your shit somewhere else.
But can remain a lovely sex related : Va te faire foutre means go get fucked. (Similar phrases say "go get yourself seen somewhere else" or "go get buttfucked")

But then we can be mildly vulgar by using the same verb to say "to work", "to place", "not caring" (Je m'en fous! i don't give a fuck), or "mock someone"
As a noun it can also mean cum.

Couillon/couillonne
: derives from testicules but means someone who is afraid and worthless, but is generally more affectionate.

connard/connasse
: comes from con!

You can be a buttfucked personne, enculé, a salaud/salope (very filthy personne, with low morales, a woman with a bad life, but as a verb means "to dirty/mess up)

Then comes the litany of beautifully sounding words like :
trainée (stain)
morue (cod)
chienne (bitch)
chagasse deriving from GREASY PUSSY "chatte grasse" Je ne deconne pas! > this being another expression meaning literally "I don't exit the cunt" and figuratively : I'm not shitting you.
Marie-couche-toi-la : Marie-lay-down-here .. how cute is that?

You can be a crevard or crevure : deriving from the vulgar word for someone's who's dying. Someone capable of the meanest/lowest actions.
Raclure (something that was scrapped (ideally from the bottom of a chamber pot?)), enflure (a swollen pain in your ass), fumier (pile of horse shit of a man), pourriture (rotten mold), ect ect ect!!!

All of these have incredibly harsh pronouciations too! The Rs are brutal, the hatred and venom can be suffused through them like you never could in most of your insults.

Then add up the art, especially strong in Paris where I'm from, of over swallowing letters to make short and aggressive words.
We call an arse hole a Trou de balle aka a bullet hole. How graphic is that? Less childish comes Trou du cul - Hole of arse. But you can shorten that to a lethal "trou duc!"

We shorten stuff like that :
"t'arretes de m'faire chier un peu p'ti con? Va t'faire fout', p'tain!" - You'll stop to make me shit a little, you small cunt? Go get fucked, whore (/fuck!).

"T'es qu'une p'tite raclure verreuse, une merde sans dimension, un raté d'la vie." - You're naught but a small wormy scraping (of shit), a turd with no dimension (size/importance), a miss of life.

How poetic is that?

But then we also have truly delightful day to day vulgar expressions :

You say you pinch a loaf, we say we have the cigar at the tip of our lips, or that we'll parachute a black man.
Or take the kids to the swimming pool.

When someone is overdoing stuff, you say he splits hairs in four, we say that he "buttfuck flies".
When someone is making things impossible, we can say he "prevents us from turning in rounds" or that he "shits in the glue".

Even better! When you're tooooooo fuuuuull from eating like a pig, you can say : "Aaah! J'ai les dents du fond qui baignent!" - my back teeth are swimming.

Man, there are just too much! So many things are part of everyday life... It depends on the tone.
But at least you don't playfully say you'll bugger off to mean you're leaving. We say "J'me casse!" with joy and a grin. And it's worse than bugger off.
That's the thing. We can call a good friend "my testicle" to joke about how "close" you are. We can weave a strong layer of coarseness in everyday language, without making it shocking.

To the point that I've grown very dangerous around young kids. I'm a true sailor mouth in french. Extremely unrefined.

@Nora (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=40237), that was truly enlightening, and top marks to the French for originality but  I think it would be really dangerous ground for a non native speaker to attempt to use  some of those French insults without guidance.  Maybe you should set up a 'Correct French Insult Translations for Any Particular Circumstance Consultation Service.'

In fact why hasn't anyone done Emperor Palpatine and the great pube Anakin Skywalker as Rick and Morty before? I'm astonished by my own genius idea I am calling it genius before anyone else can even comment.

I'm that confident about it.

That's cause no one knows Rick and Morty here. Trust me I tried to probe around, but nobody cared to reply, so probably not well known enough yet.

Don't wanna talk about it just yet... too sad to have to wait a year and a half for season 3!

And now I feel really old. If you were 14 (I was much older) when that came out you are 40 now.

I hadn't realised kids born in 1989 could actually drive and vote yet. How did this Happen?

That one reminds me of watching my daughter "read".  Its not so much reading semi-memorizing what is on the page (and I could probably easily do 1/3 of her books from memory without looking at the pages).  Like she'll see a page with a puppy in it and remember that the playful puppy plays ball.

"Ghoughpttheightteeau"

Gothayto -- pretty close.

Re: "Tarzan Boy", I have to give my love for Wikipedia another outing.

Th band was "Baltimora", a project by an Italian producer and fronted by Derry Irishman Jimmy(?) McShane. Tarzan Boy was there one huge hit.

McShane contracted AIDS and passed away in his late 30s.

I bet if some of the others came on you would recognize them.  There are a lot of songs where if you gave me a name I would draw blanks but if I heard them being played I would go "ah-ha!" and start singing terribly.

What was the go-to first dance song in 1985?

Ahaha my evil plan to take over the thread with Tarzan Boy worked I see.

And yes I wasn't born then, can guarantee 1985 was a better year for music than the one of my own birth though, 1993.

Example:

01   Meat Loaf   I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)
02   2 Unlimited   No Limit
03   Whitney Houston   I Will Always Love You
04   Ace Of Base   All That She Wants
05   UB40   (I Can't Help) Falling In Love With You
06   Gabrielle   Dreams
07   Shaggy   Oh Carolina
08   Culture Beat   Mr Vain
09   The Bluebells   Young At Heart
10   Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince   Boom! Shake The Room

Meat Loaf! Shaggy! And who the hell is Jazzy Jeff!

the one of my own birth
An entry in the 'members birthday calendar' thread is in order now ;D

Come on: Meat Loaf! The emperor or rock balads! Who doesn't know that song, in the whole wide world? ;)

And Jazzy Jeff? Not sure about him, but Fresh Prince is Will Smith. Yes, the actor :D

1) My parents were big Meatloaf fans and actually my first concert was when we went to a Meatloaf show as he was touring for that album.
2) I don't know why Whitney isn't #1, that song was huge then.
3) I could have sworn UB40 was older than 1993.
4) You have no idea who DJ Jazzy Jeff is???????

03   Whitney Houston   I Will Always Love You
2) I don't know why Whitney isn't #1, that song was huge then.

Because it was released in late 1992.  So it only got the third most sales in 1993.  :)

the one of my own birth
An entry in the 'members birthday calendar' thread is in order now ;D

Come on: Meat Loaf! The emperor or rock balads! Who doesn't know that song, in the whole wide world? ;)

And Jazzy Jeff? Not sure about him, but Fresh Prince is Will Smith. Yes, the actor :D
Oh I've heard of Meat Loaf, I was aghast that I'll Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) was the UK top single in the year I was born... >:(

And yea I know the Fresh Prince, sadly.

There are no negative zip codes, but if there were... they'd be hellish places to live.
And give matching weather reports.

Which all links back to the Alderaan weather report post.

I like a lot of xkcd's stuff, but like anything there is always a few you don't like.  The thing that gets me on this one is a negative zip code isn't a thing (or at least isn't a thing I have heard of) and it makes it feel like I'm missing something.

Same.

I assume it's a reference to the way computer coding can go completely haywire when you make a sign error.  But it doesn't quite land for me.

And there's no amount of explaining after the fact that can make a joke work after the fact.  It's like trying to produce the emotion of surprise by explaining in a detailed essay how two facts don't fit together.

The author used the phrase "the End of Godwin's law" and said: Trump tells is like it is, if telling it like it is means using 1930s political tactics to instill fear, doubt and hatred in the voting public. Trump is engaging in dog whistle politics but he’s using a megaphone instead.

Anyway, before you die of curiosity, it's a star wars joke (that I didn't get...) - some screenshots with Solo and Luke talking, and the captions are in white text over the photos (which is what I thought you were referring to, in the first place!)

A lot of the lore about Santa is really rather creepy, when you think about it. For example:

"He knows when you are sleeping.
He knows when you're awake.
He knows if you've been bad or good
so be good for goodness' sake."

So, not only is Santa watching you like, all the time, but he also knows whether you're awake or asleep. Creepy! Presumably, he keeps track of this so he'll know when he can safely invade your house.

He also knows if you've been bad (by his standards - subjective - with no guide as to what Santa considers "bad") and if you have been bad, in his opinion, presumably (from the fourth line) Santa will ensure there are consequences.

So he's basically a creeper stalker waiting to enter your house when you're sleeping and punish you if you don't live up to his subjective standards of "good".

You're right, that is very creepy.  Also, we teach children from as early as possible about Stranger Danger and then once a year expect them to rush up happily to a giant red monster with a hairy face who wants to put them on his knee. I privately applaud those kids who turn tail and run or shout NO! :P

Just watched an episode of Grimm with Grampas in it. An evil incarnation of Santa who stuffs naughty children in his sack and leaves a lump of coal in there place. He then hangs them in wicker baskets from a tree and feasts on them on the solstice. This is based on something I have read of heard when much younger. I think a bad santa is a much better example for kids than what we have now.

Hehe, I think you mean Krampus, but yes, that's the part of the Santa legend that we don't tell to modern kids. I believe in the original lore, he was Santa's twisted, evil brother, and yes, if you were bad, he came instead and snatched you away to eat you. Old fairy tales/lore didn't mess around with kids, since death was so much more common back then.

He's made appearances in Supernatural and also had a whole movie made about him recently, but IMO, his BEST appearance was in the Venture Brothers Christmas Special. Just because I love the Venture Brothers. :)

German children books are all weird, but Struwelpeter is famously fucked up.

There are different interpretations (Struwwelpeter is of German origin) and I agree with those who say that Hoffmann exaggerated the disastrous consequences of the children's misbehaviour as a satire of the social norms and educational views of that time. Society back then was quite prudish and humorless, so nobody got it and it was used to scare children into obedience. Not sure if it worked, children are usually smarter than grown ups think. ;)

The first Shrek was one of my favorite animated movie. It made me shriek and cry and crawl on the floor with laughter as a kid. I still remember it. I lost my wits when the princess sung so high she exploded the birds.
Also some of the jokes were epic in french. Like "Le garde Champetre, celui qui pue, qui pete, qui prends son cul pour une trompette?"  ;D ;D ;D

Except he really doesn't write them that differently.  Instead of creating strong women he just has Cersei, Dany, & Arianne use their sexual wiles on men to try to give themselves the upper hand.  From the released chapters from WoW both Arya and Sansa are also heading that direction. 
Title: Re: Fantasy Memes and silly stuff about books from the internet
Post by: Nora on January 21, 2016, 03:19:39 PM
Yes, but there is nothing wrong with women using their "feminine wills". They are, after all, not only women, but women in a medieval-type fantasy, where every blow is good to promote their advancement, but few enough are given them.

There are more female characters than the ones you quote here, come on! Some are downright badass as well. Like you know, the one fighting off knights, the one who came back from the dead to hang people, the ginger wild beauty who taught something to John Snow, or the one who manipulates the hell out of everybody (melisandre).
Also, Arya is training to be an ultimate assassin. Sex will probably end up being just another card in her deck I'm sure.
But none of these women are the same. Cersei's chapters become more and more batshit deluded, while Arya's grow ever darker, Bryenne has her own distinctive pov and silly standards, ect.
He writes them well because they own their name, they're not just that dour blend of "women" you remember for having being "women" in the novel, whether they spread their legs or not.

holy crap.

i was scrolling down.  the size of the comic meant the punchline was delivered perfectly.  i literally snorted and laughed out loud.  the gophers in the office popped up momentarily, then went back to their screens.

that was awesome.

One of the greatest treatment on the problem of overpowered special power of fantasy heroes. Quite infamous among RPG players, but I think novel fans are also familiar with it.

Tip for reducing image size: write height=300 (or a similar number, use 'preview' to test) inside the first url code bit of the image
So it will look something like this:
[url height=300] the image location...  [/url]

So now you put that url inside the img thing, plus the height. Like this (using () instead of [] so you can see here):

Okay, this might be mostly for people who know the game Portal.

For those who don't, this is how the game works.

Now, what would happen if you jump into a portal and make the entrance and the exit surfaces touch?

How to tell if you're in a Viking Saga

You have started a bloody multi-generational feud by stealing cheese.

You have gone away to Constantinople and left your dashing blond brother to manage all your property. You are confident nothing can go wrong.

Everyone around you is named Thorolf, except for Thorstein Cod-Biter, who lives over in the next valley. Many say he is part-troll. But they have learnt not to say it to his face.

The current feud in which you are embroiled seems likely to be resolved by prodding a blindfolded horse off a cliff with poles. This horse is known for its malice.

You have a very muted reaction to losing your limbs.

As the house burns down around you, your elderly father reflects that fostering his enemy’s son was probably a mistake.

Your survival hinges on the arrangement of poorly-maintained paths through a remote swamp. You will not survive.

Your limp has provided you with the opportunity to become an expert in the convoluted Icelandic legal system. Small, seemingly insignificant comments allow you to manipulate justice for years after your untimely death.

You have enraged a family of Sami wizards, who like to stand on your roof and sing all night.

An elderly woman, known for her second-sight, gives you specific instructions to avoid being murdered. You ignore her.

You think a summer of raiding and mercenary warfare will curb the violent tendencies of your young relative.

Someone has accused you of being an arse-wizard and for this they will pay.

Your enemy has made a miniature wood-carving of you being sodomized and nobody asks him why.

You are a distant ancestor of Snorri Sturluson.

Your main concerns about Christianity are the bans on infant exposure and the ritualised eating of horseflesh.

You went to bed with Queen Gunnhildr and she has cursed you with a penis so large it cannot be used.

Your mother is a kidnapped Irish princess, but didn’t think to mention this for years.

At the age of three, you were already composing skaldic verse and outdrinking grown men. Your grandparents are very proud of you.

Everyone you have ever loved, been related to, or looked at flirtatiously during the summer parliament has died in a feud. You are raising your sons to continue the feud.

Most of your problems can be explained with the phrase ‘cold are the counsels of women.’

You once exiled someone from Norway using a severed horse head on a stick.

Greenland is horrible, but you have persuaded people to move there with false advertising.

You may have died in an unusually horrible manner, but at least this rocky outcrop is named after you.

If you can compose a sufficiently good poem praising the king, you’re off the hook for killing his infant son.

You and your cousins once beat a man to death over a piece of driftwood.

Everyone agrees you have the eyes of a thief.

No man in Iceland was your equal, so you became a zombie-killing nun instead.

Not sure. my room has a mattress on the floor, a chair on which I put used clothes, and a low little table I picked in the street. I sit at it this very moment, sitting on a big cushion, my back to another cushion propped against the wall. I can't be bothered buying a high desk when a coffee table can do the trick. I enjoy sitting flat rather than on chairs in general, so I can understand that young man.
Maybe he's just needing another perspective, after spending 6hours riveted to a chair.

People will eat *anything*. I got a box of jerky for my birthday yesterday that proved that amply - Alligator, Kangaroo... everything.

But yes, it's not unusual to see goat on the menu of Indian or Caribbean restaurants. Somewhere between beef and lamb, but with a gamier flavour than either.

Was stumbling around youtube and found this song which I find hilarious, in a bawdy way (it has a mild reference to men's parts)  :P
@ultamentkiller (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=40103) that's one thing you can easily enjoy as it's a song only :

This movie will be proof that a wise casting goes a long way to get non-regular fans involved. I've never cared for Dr. Strange, but I WILL go and watch this movie.

0.8mg Fe per Litre (Best Case) x5 litres per adult male(Best Case) x400 =1600 mg =1.6g less than the weight of a darning needle.

So yes you could make a sword out of the blood of 400 enemies but it would be very very small. 40,000 would be closer the mark.

Oh Gods how bored am I

A 1000 should be more than enough for a good sword (1,6kg - many sword were lighter). But 40 000 would be enough for a sword AND a set of plate armour then. Maybe I'll go for a mace instead of a sword? Or a warhammer? Hmmm... yes... Neat.

Your math(s) ;) may be a tad off if you think 400 men is enough for 1.6 g but 1000 will give you 1.6 kg (1600 g). ;)

Actually this wiki site:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_iron_metabolism

says that there is 4-5g. of iron in human body and about 2,5g is in blood's hemoglobin.
So actually the original post is right (if the wiki is rigt) - about 400 well fed men can contain enough blood to make a sword.

hemochromatosis is very real and not at all pleasant if there were really 2.5g of iron in your blood (actually in the hemaglobin) you would be poisoned by it. I would think that was spot on if the measurement was milligrams.

1000 mg= 1gram
1000 grams =1 kilogram
1.6 kilos is a good estimation for a longsword so lets try with your units units 16000g/2.5g =6,400

so if you are happy my original 0.8 mg (more likely to be 0.55mg) and 400 giving you 1.6g, 4000 16g, 40,000 160g and 400,000 1600g which suggests I should check my workings before commiting them to a post.

Post by: Nora on April 05, 2016, 01:05:52 PM
I think we're all making a mistake here, which is to base our estimates on the weight of a finished longsword.

There is a large difference between the weight of your iron blob as you start working it, and the weight of the final blade.

Oh @Nora (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=40237) he got you good. Hook line and sinker.

When the UK was complaining about giving up its pounds and ounces as a retail measurement and stupidly made it a crime to sell in lbs to bring us in Europe there was great outcry and lots of people demanding we keep this British form of measurement not knowing that it was Italian or more specifically Roman and inflicted on the inhabitants of these isles 2000 years ago. probably with an equal amount of complaining.

OFC the American system was inconsistant with the imperial system and may be the result of building shortchanging into the system.

It's a meditation chamber.

This is a pretty big deal, as this means the rocket only has to carry a little fuel for a soft landing and doesn't need to carry a whole lot of fuel to fly all the way back to the start field. (And you want it to fly mostly over the sea instead of over land so nobody gets hit if it crashes.) Less fuel means more space for bigger satelites.

Since the discussion turned to Harry Potter in another thread, I'm going with it. With a twist...A Very Potter Musical Twist.  One could only wish for such fans. If I were J.K., I'd be laughing way too hard at all of this. I mean, the entertainment value. As long as you're not one of those people too serious about keeping your work to the letter. Watching fans have so much fun in such a weird way is just...well, so much fun. This is what my dreams are mad of, and that's probably weird. XD

Meh, found the visuals cool but the audio boring.

If you want to challenge yourself a bit more, try this out. It's my favorite track from Blast Furnace, a powernoise album. Most of the sounds you hear come from some sort of power tool or crashing material of some sort. I find it oddly entrancing and melodic in its own way. Very few people's cup of tea.

I know that picture and find it silly. For one, it doesn't even include classical or instrumental, and really, nothing in listening to noise music makes you an outcast, or krautrock compared to metal etc.
same with drone music. Seriously, it's like electronic ambient music. Far from making you detached from the social dogma.
But anyway, I guess that's a compliment.

Realised I'm not sure everyone here knows about this absolutely brilliant video! It's past 30 Million views, and I generally choke in demented laugher when I show it to people.  ;D

It's the longest trailer ever, for The Horribly Slow Murderer with the Extremely Inefficient Weapon. A movie I would actually watch if it came out.

edit : the end is my favourite bit, and I actually went into hysterical laugher.

And you guys might not have heard of it but, a movie just came out called Hardcore Henry, which is basically a first person shooter film. Pretty violent but cool apparently, and the guys on the promo did a Magical Edition!!
And I would watch the HELL out of a movie like that!!

"Neverending" would be an appropriate word!  :P

Myeah we took part for 12 months in a row and it didn't help, don't think it will unless there's a theme we really like. I'll still read them and vote though.  ;)

Anyway, on topic, housecat-sized-lions should totally be a species in a fantasy book:

It may take some time, but eventually you'll get there. Might need some polishing, but usually what you intially thought was a great idea is actually a great idea.

Our thing was to make a tent in the living room out of two chairs, a broom stick, a blanket and stacks of encyclopedias to hold down the edges. Then we could scream and fight with the evil things on the outside that were trying to get in.

Tents were always great.  When my mom's side of the family would get together for a holiday, my uncle would build these massive tent complexes at my grandparents house.  I'm talking about starting in one room, going through a hallway, and then going into one or two other rooms.

Until I quoted this picture and saw the name of the jpeg (Doctor Hoo), I had no bloody idea what this was about!!


Also, this applies to me writing fiction as well!

(http://img-9gag-fun.9cache.com/photo/apvMRpW_700b_v1.jpg)

This movie is one of my favourite animation, and whenever I had to suffer my younger siblings to watch a film, I often rooted for it and never failed to watch it.
Along with Shrek. I remember seeing shrek, very young (maybe 12?) with a polish babysitter, and the two of us literally rolled on the floor with infectious and hysterical laugher at the scene where Fiona laughs so high that the "disney birds" who sing along explode from it.

Holy crap, thats amazing.
No, JMack would have 0 patience and skill for that.
JMack likes things he can do well with minimal work.
Its why he sings pretty well, but cant read music.
Its why he writes short stories for the monthly contest and nothing else (so far).

But, he'd be really good at hiring that sculptor to make a ferocious goat head.  :D

Atku is the goat deity and major antagonist of the Fantasy Faction RPG. Its origins lie in the writing contest however. (April last year if I recall well) If you are unlucky you might see it rear its ugly head from time to time on these forums as it even has an account! :o
Do not let it deceive you for it is pure evil!

Heh, yeah. Please don't mark this down as an "American" thing. Because its not. :) Or if it is, I've managed to find myself a goat free bubble for my entire life (outside of the forum, anyway).

It is possible you could ask @Atku to tell of himself.  Be prepared for what may come forth from the darkness.

He's unsummonable (Atku God of Goats). You need to ask his minion, @Jmack (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=37094) ;)

Dear @Lanko (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=40739),

The link you are looking for is:
http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/general-discussion/the-forum-birthday-cycle/msg101326/#msg101326 (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/general-discussion/the-forum-birthday-cycle/msg101326/#msg101326)

And it also goes back to a wonderful moment of hilarity in which we used Forum magic items (no longer available in the store, sorry to say) that allowed us to change each other's titles. Some of us still the remember "The Title Wars." It ended up pitting the forces of the Hound (@Nighteyes (http://fantasy-faction.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=272)) against the forces of the goat, with a bunch of dragons thrown in.

Then there was the month that I wrote two stories for the contest, and submitted one of them through my alter ego "Atku God of Goats". I had to remove the story though, since that would have been cheating.  :o

Yes, I admit it here. Atku is not real. He is a complete figment of my imagination.

I was messing with people's titles for months, before anyone else cottoned on they could do it. People used to be named my greatest fan. Then it all went a bit nuts. I think I made Jmack Sir Spamalot as he was so happy that he made a 1000 posts and I felt he needed his own personal title to celebrate a thousand posts. Then every Tom, Dick and Harry was doing it. Jmack made some quip about goats and I gave him the title "Not allowed within 10 metres of a goat for legal reasons, don't ask", all sorts of other titles appeared, poor Elfy was accused of having flatulence. Now I just leave my title as it is for others to use as a sandwich board.

I'd have had to be a student at the eminent John Hopkins University, so... no.
When I lived in B'More from high school through college, my friends and I hung out at the Enoch Pratt Central library on Cathedral street. I just tried to find some wonderfully impressive photos of it from the internet, and had to abandon as an epic fail.

They're about to do a $140M restoration on the old dame. I'll have to check it out then.

Over the years and largely through re-enactment I have done the odd bit of extra work and have made props for museums and film companies. I got to work on a few movies and a lot more audio visual for sites and made historical props. (Not done much since my daughter was born, probably ought look at that again.) Reign of Fire was one of the least stressful as it was largely coating large boards with liquid plastic to make melted tunnels for the dragon lair. Two slightly bigger titles were Gladiator which got Dave's company established and knights tale. one set of steel and leather lorica armour was made as a master and then disassembled and used to cast lots of plastic parts to make plastic and leather sets. Then knights Tale where real harness was made for the principles and lots of plastic castings were made off existing reenactment harness to vary the mix. Fun Times. Prior to that I took on projects largely through a company called Mists of Time working on diverse contracts from film costume and armour to the siege engines at Caerphilly castle. And there is no way at all that we ever worked on two Robin Hood films at the same time.

Magneto would never attend a Trump rally except to kill him. This is the guy who got thrown into a Nazi camp, and quite a few WW2 Concentration camp survivors have seen the correlation. Instead, he should be swooping in to kick his butt.

This is how my next paranormal mystery is going to start, folks!

Seriously, what the hell happened? :0

http://gizmodo.com/hospital-ward-gripped-by-mysterious-hallucinations-quar-1787866693 (http://gizmodo.com/hospital-ward-gripped-by-mysterious-hallucinations-quar-1787866693)

Quote
This week, an emergency room in the Pacific Northwest was briefly quarantined after five people—including two police officers and a hospital worker—experienced mysterious hallucinations from an unidentified illness believed to be spread by touch.

According to Oregon Live, the enigmatic incident began early Wednesday morning when a 54-year-old caregiver in North Bend, Oregon, called police to report seven or eight people “trying to take the roof off her vehicle.” Police say they found nothing, but after the caregiver reported the unseen vandals a second time, sheriff’s deputies escorted her to a nearby hospital for suspected hallucinations.

Shortly afterward, however, one of the deputies began experiencing similar symptoms and returned to the hospital. Soon after that, the other deputy, a hospital worker and the caregiver’s 78-year-old patient also began hallucinating and were hospitalized.

A hazmat team was subsequently deployed to both the hospital and the initial residence, but was unable to locate a common source of contamination. Blood tests also failed to find anything unusual.

According to police spokesperson Patrick Downing, initial investigations suggested the 78-year-old patient’s narcotic fentanyl patches could be the source of the hallucinations, but that explanation was later ruled out.

“Investigation has found that all those patches and potential medications that may have caused the symptoms have been accounted for,” Downing told KVAL News. “The vehicles, equipment and uniforms have been checked with no contaminates identified or located on or about them.”

Authorities say the investigation is ongoing.

Nope! I just thought it was weird and wacky. I also liked that "an investigation is ongoing". I mean, this just SCREAMS for an episode of X-Files.

they all ate at the same pizza place for lunch.  a pizza place which grabbed the wrong bag of mushrooms out of the back storeroom.


Ha, as likely as anything else. It's like the time people freaked out with a massive group of birds all fell dead at once (falling out of the sky) or toads and fish got rained on people (apparently the result of a nearby tornado that sucked them up from a stream).

No idea what sort of thing could cause you to hallucinate based on touch. Either way, it's great story fodder (the part about the lady saying people "were trying to remove the top of her van" was freaky sounding).

Plus, while you could say one older lady having hallucinations is understandable, having two deputies AND the orderly who came in contact with her ALSO having hallucinations takes it into X-Files territory.

Post by: The Gem Cutter on October 17, 2016, 09:52:23 PM
If it was raining (being Washington State), there might be few traces to find. I wonder if it was touch and not a vapor.  The location is odd to me - woman was at/in her car, where she would not have spent a long time unless she was inside it. And the police were there for only a short time. This suggests a very potent poison or contaminant - that strikes me as non-accidental.

Inhalants require far less potency and time to achieve the same effect, and anything going through the skin would have to be special, mixed with glycerin or something similar, and be in fairly potent form. I assume they tested for LSD, so ruling that out, there's psilocybin and some other toxins of that kind out there. Again, that seems pretty deliberate or a truly unimaginable chain of coincidences.

Raid/nerve agent will do that kind of thing, but there's obvious other symptoms - drooling, twitching, loss of bowel and other muscle control - the infamous kickin' chicken. I'd wonder about petroleum-based vapors. They can do weird things to the system. This all reminds me of a day I drank vodka with a Russian chemist, colonel in their Army's medical research branch who casually mentioned how he'd led the team that weaponized anthrax and worked on "other things that can be vaporized." Bone-chilling conversation with a Bond villain.

I don't know how I avoided finding out about this for so long.

https://twitter.com/TheStrangeLog (https://twitter.com/TheStrangeLog)

This is a Twitter account that picks particularly odd or funny videogame patch notes and reposts them out of context. It's actually funny imagining where these came from, but may be particularly amusing to game devs.

EDIT: A few examples

I know we have a thread about funny stuff related to books, and fantasy in general, but I thought maybe we could have one about all the OTHER funny stuff on teh interwebs.

Let's start this off with one of my personal favourites.

For those who don't know, Wolfenstein 3D was the first proper first-person shooter video game, in which you fight primitively rendered Nazis, and their cartoonish super-science and occultism. Someone put together a fantastic Untergang/Wolfenstein video:

Ah, the Christmas season.

The... Christmas season.

Okay, let me tell you folks something: Working in a supermarket around Christmas seven years in a row really, truly teaches you to loathe Christmas music. Between Christmas and New Year's, every single employee is giddy with relief as it FINALLY STOPS!

(ahem)

Well, anyway, after being force-fed uninspired, sappy sappy garbage for years, the only Christmas songs I can tolerate these days is the ones where the lyrics have been messed with. This is my favourite one:

Our store set up the display for christmas decoration last weekend and we started selling christmas trees this friday.

Yesterday I spend two hours unpacking and sorting a container with 100 trees. And we still have five more standing in the backyard. And I really wouldn't be surprised if we keep getting a lot more as christmas gets closer. I see myself hauling trees for the next four weeks.

Reminded me of this from r/writingprompts:
https://www.reddit.com/r/WritingPrompts/comments/5e6rcz/wp_in_the_canine_world_humans_are_celestial/daa5hbx/

The Master lifted his cane off of his throne in the room of gathering, leaned on it. He moved carefully, slowly to the glowing box in one corner of the room. He pressed a thin finger against the side of the box, and the glowing disappeared.

I stood up to greet him as he turned to me. I looked up at his eyes. They were losing their color. Most Masters think dogs don't notice things, but I do. I have been a good dog to my Master, and I have noticed many things.

I noticed when he was not moving in his bed one morning. I noticed when another Master was going to attack mine from behind. I noticed when my Master brought home a new, tiny Master with no motor skills and a high-pitched squeal.

"George, ya ole mutt," my Master chuckled, reaching down to scratch my neck. I loved it when he scratched my neck!

As he pulled his hand back, I looked back into his eyes and tilted my head.

My Master sat back down in his soft throne, leaned forward. "I know, boy-o," he whispered, lifting my head with his hand, holding his cane in his other, "I'm not looking so good. I'm not moving as fast as I used to, I can't do all of the things I used to do with you."

Moisture began to form around his eyes. I have seen this before, he is sad. My Master is sad, but why? Is it because he is getting old? Is it because of me? Did I do something wrong? I nudged my nose closer to him, making him chuckle.

"No, no, no," my Master smiled, "you're good, ole boy, you're good."

Okay, good, it wasn't me.

"I do want to talk to you, though." My Master stood up briefly then dropped to one knee, laying his cane on the ground. "Sit for me, Georgie. I'm going to be going to the hospital soon. I hope this is just for some tests, but I'm not sure."

I tilted my head again. What is a "hospital"? Is it like Hell? Or, in other words, the Vet?

"This is looking like my last trip to the hospital, boy-o."

Something about his tone did not sound right to me. Moisture was appearing in his eyes again. Why is my Master so sad now? What is going on? I scooted a little closer to him, licking his hand. Maybe licking his hand would make him feel better.

"Thank you, boy," my Master said, stroking my head. "You've been a good boy so far. We've had some pretty fun times, too. Remember those muggers?" He laughed a big laugh this time. "What a time! Good thing I had this with me." He picked up his cane, waved it at me. My tail wagged.

"I want you to know, boy-o, that I love you and that you have been the best friend anyone could have."

I have no idea what he just said, but he looked intensely into my eyes, and the moisture was gone, so I think he was happy. My tail continued to wag. I licked his hand again.

My Master pressed his head to mine. We remained there for a good long while.

My tail continued to wag.

I don't think I ever posted this here (though maybe I did?) As a gamedev, it's one of my favorite videos of how complex simulations can go wrong.

The Grand Theft Auto series is known for being a hugely complicated simulated open world. The simulation has dozens of cars navigating streets while obeying traffic laws, avoiding pedestrians, and avoiding each other. People are designed to interact with each other as you pass by and then go into action (fight or flight) when you interact with them. There's just so much complex engineering that goes into designing a simulation like this.

Then all a modder has to do is simply remove all friction from the cars and the world goes nuts.

For some reason, 'thus' is like the bread and butter of mathematical proof writing, along with the backwards E and the upside down A. I have never seen the word 'thus' used to the mad extent that mathematicians use it. I'd say it's because 'therefore' is too long a word to spell sometimes, but mathematicians also have a symbol for 'therefore':

(http://www.symbols.com/gi.php?type=1&id=1632&i=1)

Thus, I'm convinced mathematicians are obsessed with it for no other reason than there's almost no other context in which it's use is acceptable.

Sorry if this is badly timed, but I really should have shared this ages ago: The Onion's version of a post-apocalyptic future, delivered through news reports. For a 10-minute clip I think it does an admirable job of creating its own lingo. Also, every person interviewed has their health status and skill set listed, providing quick little extra jokes.

Check it out.

These are my favourite kinds of Onion articles: B-movie plots, related in a totally dry, serious news manner.

"NEW YORK—Standing mystified in a crowded intersection, Verus Attius Glabrio, a Roman centurion who emerged from a manhole in the middle of New York’s Time Square, is in for a wacky adventure, sources confirmed Wednesday.

Reports stated that Glabrio, a highly decorated military officer from 55 A.D., crawled out of the sewer opening at approximately 8:35 p.m. clad in full Roman Imperial battle armor, immediately causing motorists to swerve, slam on their brakes, scream vulgar remarks, and make obscene hand gestures in his direction..."

You use the tags (img)image.jpg(/img) ... but replace the ( with brackets.

Also, this one took me FOREVER to learn, but ... there's a Quote button by each post, and it's cool for two reasons. One, of course, is that if you click it, it automatically does the cool thing above where it quotes the person's post into yours. And two ... it also includes any special tags they used.

So next time you are curious about how somebody posted a Youtube clip, or image, or tagged someone, or any of the other randomness you see on this page, you can quote the post and see the text and tags in your own posting window. Reverse engineering!

Yes, I realize it's not, actually. But it made me feel clever when I figured that out. :P

EDIT: Oh, missed the other part of your question. Yes, you can only post images by providing links.

That did not work, because your link is not valid. I don't know what you did, did you just add .JPG at the end of the address of the page? It doesn't work like that.
Right click on the image and select "copy image location" or whatever sounds similar to that. When you paste what you just copied inside a new window, you'll see that you obtained the URL for the image :

http://img-9gag-fun.9cache.com/photo/ao2r1qA_700b.jpg

That is what you want to put in brackets.

As for doing that, if your reply page looks like mine always does, you'll notice the buttons on top of the smileys?
There is a youtube one, followed by "Sp", and then the third is a square frame, looks like a little painting. That makes the img brackets appear instantly. If you click it first, this appears (I added a space so that it shows):

[img][ /img]

And you only have to paste your image URL in between. But you can also highlight your already existing URL, then click the button, and the brackets will appear around the highlight.

P.S : also you don't need to use any URL brackets like [url], when adding a link. If the link is valid it is automatically made into a clickable one.

And likewise very sad I couldn't find the whole video for this one, with audio and all, but pleaaaaase click on the link and look at that!!
A woman steps out in an Alaskan snow storm to reach her car (in which she apparently forgot her phone?), and the forces of the wind are just nuts, it looks like a perfect movie scene. The way the snow billows and tears at her hair!!

You stick a knife between the lid and the jar then leverage until it goes pop. Pull knife out, open jar.

heh.  no, no.

the knife (or any utensil kind of thing) is used to gently tap all around the top edge of the lid.  that percussive effect loosens the sticky grip of the lid.  comes right off.  works like a charm.

physics is your friend.

and it's WAY easier than setting up a complicated rig of pulleys and rope.

There's several way for this, I have tried them and they really did worked. You can rinse the lid of the jar under warm water, then try opening it again. The expanding of the molecules of metals in the lid will allow you to remove it more easily.

Or you could wrap a string of rubber band around the lid then try twisting it again. The rubber band will give a better grip than opposed to the slick metsl, and alow for easier opening. Hope this helps!  :D

We're all screwed over here anyway, and if he pushes the button everyone dies. Put us out of our misery...although.

The Onion's sense of humour pretty much perfectly matches my own. Yesterday I came across this list of all the American presidents, with a little paragraph summing each one up.

Like: "Lyndon Johnson. Appointed by Lee Harvey Oswald. Thirty-sixth president of the United States who never made a single decision or accomplished a single task without, at some point, threatening to cut someone’s pecker off."

The weekend was startling  :D It was an eye opener. I will say it is the only place (and time) in the world I have ever been propositioned for sex by four girls cruising in a car. This was actually quite a scary experience!

This was the second time I had been to Reykjavik the first was a stopover on a cheap flight to America and I was there on a Monday morning. It was closed.

First of all. I liked the writing advice videos - the fantasy race one in particular is very good. 

Secondly - I don't think @Eli_Freysson meant any harm, but I did like @The Gem Cutter initial post as jokes at the cost of overweight people are flippant and  hurtful.  However, I think the latter exchange could have been done via PM.  Eli had no way of knowing about Gem Cutter's son.

Sorry Nora, but do you really think that 'joke' you put in the spoiler is funny, and you love it? :-\
Let's agree to disagree...

Well, yes I find it funny. Humour is the one thing we can always agree to disagree. So many people find Marvel movies funny and entertaining for example, when I often see them as punishment to sit through. Taste and colours...

In France we have a saying that goes "Woman who laughs, half in your bed" – as in, if you're funny you'll have more success. This is just a dark joke on that line. *shrug*.
Just like one of my favourite pick up lines is :

"Sorry, you dropped something."
[looks around, confused] "what?"
[shakes hands] "Your expectations, Hi, I'm X"

That sort of stuff delights me, what can I say?

If I could read a novel with crime elements in it and the bad guy had a line of dialogue like this I would roll over.

The Grand Theft Auto series has some fantastic comedic writing, with all sorts of social commentary. The in-game radio ads can be a joy to listen to, and I often put the playlists on while doing chores. I thought I'd link the audio for GTA 5, and set the video to start on one of my favourites.

Apparently, a person from Accident, MD (not that far from me) is called an "Accidental."
I want to move there.

I want an address of:

25 Close Shave Way
Accident, MD

Which has an obscure joke embedded in it.
Who can guess?  ;D

Nope, but that's so excellent it should be  ;D

Reveal in spoilers.
soooooo obscure, and perhaps only American.

25 Close Shave matches Accident, of course.

But also, there's an old bit of doggerel: "shave and a haircut - two bits".

Two bits is 25 cents, for the even more obscure reason that Spanish pieces of eight were broken up into bits for use as as smaller denominations, and this phrase carried over to U.S. money.

Meanwhile, "shave and haircut, two bits" is doggerel from the old vaudeville days:

Oh man, I'd forgotten all about this video, but it is *so* good.

Long story short: A young kid wrote some Half-Life 2 fanfiction that was so bad, it was good. Then an enterprising modder and narrator made a video out of the kid's fanfiction using Garry's Mod.

Even if you haven't played Half-Life 2, this is just hilarious.

Only if I was rich and dedicated enough. I know someone whose entire assets are tied up in 15th centuary reproductions no house no car and over a 100k of tents, armour and props.

 I did some Later Light cavalry reenactment but the 15th centuary stuff I did was afoot.
I have met Jason and Chris years back though and helped clear land they own outside Oxford and helped cook a medieval banquet they threw there a few years back.

The '80s. Sheesh. Kids.

Could have meant the 1880's
Yes, that's why I like fantasy, it gives me a taste of home... Everlasting life is such a burden... ;D

Never really felt like watching the show or even reading the books, but I feel like this keeps me up to date with all the important bits to understand the funny image captions. And I love this humor. (The first couple of episodes are strangely low on jokes, though.)

Yes. I love seeing this, considering my next series will have a Gothic bent.

And on the subject of burial... I have already decided that when I'm an old man I'm going to buy my own gravestone, keep it in my living room as a conversation piece, and have a joke engraved on it. Something to baffle graveyard visitors a hundred years later. I'm thinking "Elí Freysson: Buried alive."

I'm also going to have ELO's "I'm alive" played during the ceremony.

Yes, my sense of humor is a bit odd.

Also, if any fantasy writer wants to write something that will still be remembered in a thousand years, this is as cool as you have to get (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVHyXcAJ-Ks).

The Indians also have some ancient stuff that would be too outragous for most writers today.

Which once again proves that Fantasy reallly is the original form of literature and everything else just knockoffs.

For those who don't pay attention to Doctor Who, I just wanted to drop this exchange from the latest trailer, between the Doctor and a British WW1 military officer.

Officer: "Am I going mad?"

The Doctor: "Well, you're an officer from World War One at the South Pole, being pursued through frozen time. Madness was never this good."

Officer: "World War One?"

The Doctor: "Judging by the uniform, yes."

Officer: "Yes, but... what do you mean... One?"

The Doctor: "... oh, sorry. Spoilers."

Dante’s Nine Circles of Hell, Reimagined for Linguistic Transgressions
by John Rauschenberg

https://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/dantes-nine-circles-of-hell-reimagined-for-linguistic-transgressions (https://www.mcsweeneys.net/articles/dantes-nine-circles-of-hell-reimagined-for-linguistic-transgressions)

First Circle (Limbo):
Autocorrect


Here wander the otherwise virtuous souls who were forced into grievous errors by autocorrect programs. They sit in silent masturbation, only rising once every hour to chant eerie koans such as “ducking auto cat rectal.”

Second Circle:
The Serial Comma


One half of this circle is populated by souls who are cursed to make arguments that nobody cares about except their own mothers, howling gorgons and the infernal mistresses of hell. The other half are cursed to make arguments that nobody cares about except their own mothers, howling gorgons, and the infernal mistresses of hell. The difference between these two situations seems to matter a lot to both halves. Neither side will listen to you when you suggest that they could avoid this level entirely.

Third Circle:
Unnecessary Use of Quote Marks


They may think they’re getting off the "hook,” but in this level quote marks are used as cavalierly as these souls used them in life. Does “groin-dissolving” in quotes indicate that your treatment is not really groin-dissolving, or are the quotes merely being used in the place of italics, you’ll wonder? More importantly, is the “seafood” buffet on “Sundays” “fresh" and “free”?

Fourth Circle:
Hated Abbreviations


ICYMI, this level is for people who use OPAs (off-putting abbreviations) to show off their supposed hipness and/or needlessly confuse others. New abbreviations are constantly being invented and CASJ dropped into conversation. The souls are expected to KTOS (know them or suffer). Good luck with your KLRDT (Keats-like rapidly degenerative tuberculosis) as you’re also subjected to MMMTDs (massively multi-personal medieval torture devices). Are you doing OK? No. You’re doing AWACBE (as well as can be expected), given the MNNTKUWNVECD (mind numbing need to keep up with non-vocabulary-extending cultural dross). In short (but is it really?), it’s annoying AF.

Fifth Circle:
Meaningless Truisms


This level is what it is. You be you.*

*Naturally, forced to embrace reality and themselves exactly as they are, souls on this level experience extremely high levels of depression, even for hell.

Sixth Circle:
Misused Apostrophes


Most souls on this level are cursed to endlessly hunt for things that they mistakenly stated belonged to someone or something. Where is Kid’s party? What about Nacho’s $5.75? This entire level has lost it’s way.

Seventh Circle:
Using Emojis To Sum Up Feelings or Events That Are Way Too Complicated for Emojis To Sum Up


So you thought you were being “economical” and “Hemingwayesque” by leaving others wondering what the shit you meant by your cryptic emojis? You’re now cursed to be eternally robbed of resolution. The results of your recent chlamydia screening? ???? And what was that “seafood” you had in the third circle? ????

Eighth Circle:
Needless Correctors


The souls in this circle often toured the other circles, mocking the poor souls who suffered there for their poor command of the English language. Little did they know that one of the worst circles was reserved for them and their grating tendency to overcorrect English usage at every opportunity. These are the people who can’t watch an episode of Star Trek without pointing out that “to boldly go” splits the infinitive, who cause you to cringe the instant after you say “I don’t know which restaurant we’re going to.” They are forced to compose tweets for President Trump. The punishment for writing any tweet that is even close to grammatically correct is needless physical corrections to the offender’s body. Very physical and very needless.

Ninth Circle:
Literally, the Ninth Circle


It is literally the worst circle ever.

Okay, this is far from silly but it IS relevant to fantasy, and I can't think of any other place to put it.

Someone made videos, made up of clips from Doctor Who and set to music, summing up the Cybermen, the Daleks, and the Master respectively; showing just how chilling, and in some ways tragic these iconic villains are. I really love fan-made stuff like this:

Apparently I have never shared this gem here:

The Auralnauts Star Wars Saga.
 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSCm8yAxBr8&list=PLINl9l0igYjzIipxsD4Y59_Jjxe4N3pZo)

A complete retelling of the Star Wars movies that starts as a story about a gang of drug addicted hooligans who have a reputation for wrecking every bar or concert they are visiting, which puts them at odds with Mister Palpatine, the owner of the Space Hooters chain. Things get more complicated when Anakin falls in love with Obi-Wan's girlfriend, Obi-Wan's is struggling with his addiction, and Mister Palpatine reaches out to Anakin to help him straighten out his life by offering him a job in management.
And they are settling their conflicts by dance battles and showing off the stereo systems of their starfighters. And there's a genocidal robot that philosophizes about the meaning of suffering.

And for some reason, it makes for a really compelling story with characters you can get invested in.

(http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/263/598/9f4.jpg)


Regarding the teeth tho, teeth are a class shibboleth in the Americas, consequently people here do put more effort into dental care even if it's not covered** (in Brazil and Colombia people even get braces just to show they can afford them.... go figure), where as in the UK... not.  When I've been in former UK colonies, it's hard to even find floss to buy. And I had a dentist (i forget where but I think it was in the UK)  tell me that flossing was a myth and unnecessary and I was aghast. I think we might have had the flossing debate on here at one point in time. So yeah there's that

**(side note, BECAUSE people often pay out of pocket for dental, the costs are way lower than other medical procedures, since insurance hasn't inflated all the prices)

/sigh So floss is readily available in the UK and has been for the majority of my lifetime my local Tesco has 4 or 5 different products including strange bow shaped things with a length of floss attached and tape for those who don't want to pull string between their teeth. these are not just held in case Americans visit and are even sold to the English from time to time. The difference is we are largely not obsessive about flossing. The state of NHS dentistry is deteriorating at the moment, largely as a result of scumbag American companies buying up dental practices and running them as profit engines.

The various trade agreements on the table look like the NHS is going to be carved up by American companies and the money we have invested in these services during our working lives will be headed for offshore bank accounts so the few so please tell me about how affordable and wonderful it will be to be under the American system of healthcare./halfhearted rant over

well (I don´t know about Witcher 2 and Witcher 3 but I just assume You could also do it in these games) in Witcher You had many woman to sleep with so it does make sense to make a porn parody based on it. maybe it would be even more accurate than a hollywood movie.

Not really, no attacks or negative comments on anyone, hehe I think they just assume that people know what the alternative is...

I know that Waterstone's is also a big chain, but at least it's got real shops, so I do try to buy from them, or independents when I find one.
However I had to buy @OnlyOneHighlander's book from amazon because it's not sold anywhere else, and same with Aliette de Bodard's latest, as it's her own self-pub - so sometimes you don't have an option...

A few years back, I used to love browsing my local bookstores too (I'm such a frequent visitor/ buyer that they remembered me). As time goes on, I ran out of books to buy since the options were so limited, end up browsing some online retailers and found a boundless horde of fantasy at my fingertips. Things rise and fall with time, I guess.

The first one probably was, but I still find myself getting grumpy every time I see a millennial headline or product that missuses words, oblivious to meaning, reference, and connotation.  Or waxes poetic with grandiose overstatements about popular culture ("Is the superhero movie the new secular religion" keeps popping up as a recommendation on pocket). There's no sense of history, and every 5 second fad is worshiped in this completely oblivious way. I need a place to complain about millennials like a grumpy old man who's angry about the neighborhood children running in his yard.

My comment was ironic: I posted a comic taking the same line.

JK Rowling reweals lots of "facts" about her characters on twitter. Things which are absurd, not reflected in the books, etc. She said for example that Hermione was black. She never explicitly said she was white, true. But to reveal this now, after the movies and with no direct indications about her skin color in the books is a bit strange.

I think the tweet starting all this was the one that said that plumbing and toilets were a relatively new thing in the wizarding world and until a few decades ago they just relieved themselves where they stood and used vanishing spells.

With the latest season of Game of Thrones being such a hot topic right now, let's play 'Spot the Starbucks cup' in this latest episode.  ;D  If this isn't a massive spoof, I don't know what, man.

To be specific, it's not a Starbucks cup but a tea cup from a local shop :)
