whatAt first, I thought he was just gonna scoop some ice cream onto bread. But then
Seriously how did he figure this out
You can use ANY flavor of ice cream you want, and it bakes up pretty well in a bread machine(quick bread setting) or rice cooker too. >.> In case there isn’t an oven or using it makes the whole house too hot. An instructables with commentary.
That Mysterious “S” Thing We Used to Draw (by the1janitor)
We used to draw this as kids and it’s always confused me. It still really bothers me tbh.
This is really creepy tbh.
yeah we used to draw these! around 2002. at the time i was told it was like the slipknot logo but now i know it’s totally not. but we did used to get in trouble for drawing them.
we never got in trouble with them. I had them all over my school planner lol.
(We did call them ‘super S’)
There’s this awesome book I read called ‘The People in the Playground’ which concerns the observations of an anthropologist on children’s folklore: the stuff that kids independently teach one another in school yards and playgrounds that has no real connection to adult lore and media. This is a great example of it, as are hand clapping and jump rope verses.
If you can finish the lines “Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack all dressed in black black black…” or ‘Hinky Pinky Ponky, Daddy had a donkey…”or “Miss Suzy had a steamboat…” or “Engine Engine number nine…”
stop and think about where you learned them.
It probably wasn’t from an adult or out of a book or in any formal way. It was from another kid; someone a grade ahead of you or someone’s older sibling or something. Who learned it the same way.
This is CHILD lore. Sometimes a fad will come and go in a single age cohort, sometimes it’ll last for generations. It’s kind of awesome.
The idea of child lore and a distinct child culture is really interesting, especially when you consider that children have a few traditions that go back hundreds of years.
For example: did you ever play “Quaker’s meeting?” Quaker’s meeting has begun, no more laughter, no more fun…that dates back two centuries.
And of course there’s “Ring around the rosie,” which goes all the way back to the time of the black plague.
Children pass these things down among themselves as part of a legacy they lack the context to fully understand; but you could say the same thing about most adult traditions. That unbroken chain of shared knowledge connects their play to the play of children from hundreds of years ago, without any adult input or encouragement.
You can get the book for less than a dollar (not including shipping) on amazon right now!
I saw this symbol above an industrial lock the other day.
GOB: I have feelings for you.
Tony Wonder: I have feelings for you.
Narrator: The feeling was “friendship,” but neither had ever experienced it.
A New Attitude - 4x11
I have always and will always believe that Sophie should have taken Lambda at the end. A friendship/connection/understanding between the two literally created to be enemies at the beginning defying that at the end would have been far more suited to the story and far more meaningful. Also they’re both immortal, so it would be nice that they would never be alone. And it would have given far more weight to the “Richard is Sophie’s friend” thing beyond that she doesn’t want to fight him. Asbel has no real connection to Lambda beyond his secondary connections to Richard and Sophie, and I don’t buy that his past makes him at all suitable for “understanding” Lambda.
Oh well. Maybe Sophie’s anti-lambda nanomachine makeup would have fried him if they tried it.

Late to the party, but my opinion on the entire Star Wars EU being declared non-canon? SUCK IT MARA JADE essentially.
I still have absolutely no opinion on the new movie though. Just no opinion at all. Whatever will be will be I guess.
Some impressions from the Suikoden IV Pachislot machine that was released over two years ago. Including some images that you could unlock by playing a demoversion on the Konami website. For all Mitsuba lovers a must see!
