DO U EVEN LIFT MR WAYNE
I just got a new phone and while exploring the tumblr app, discovered I had several messages that my laptop had never told me about. In light of this, if anyone sent me a message that didn`t get a response in the past ever, I’m sorry, I hadn’t read it.
As spring begins to best winter in this westerly hemisphere I entreat you to share a moment of collaboration with the nearest tyke and commemorate the famous maritime fig merchants, to which we all owe a debt of gratitude, with this home-crafted diorama made in tribute to their sea-salt encrusted bravery. The dimensions within the template have been prefigured to match each-other for your convenience.
All you will need is a willing heart and the following:
-a printing mechanism
-scissors of any sort
-a surgeon’s steady hand
-fortifying adhesive paste
Seize the day, friends and pause to reflect on the transit of your favorite snacks across the undulating waves from the docks of distant shores to your welcoming lips.

Joseph Begley lights up rooms in a cheeky way with ‘Slap It’
A quick pinch or squeeze of the ‘slap it’ lamp by London-based designer Joseph Begley brightens up rooms with its warm glow. made from realistic feeling silicone, the cheeky light responds to pressure sensors when it is touched, directly turning it on or off.
Ok can I have
Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.
To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:
Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?
Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255. On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.
And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!
