    Oh now, come on. You read my previous post here, no? What do you think?



    I`d say, subtle hints were given. It was a brief moment of sanity that actually got me making this rule. Thank God I have those every now and then... o_________________o

    I`m willing to do a lot of things to get the job done. Legal things, mind you.

    What ever it takes.

    2 things, however, are NOT on that list. -

    a.)adding more pouches and

    2.) lens-flare.

    No. Lens. Flare.

    EVER.
    Real soldiers wear a fuck ton of pouches.

    I wouldn't say never to lens flares as an effect. The filter is still a good thing to never do. But even then. If you know how to use it then you can get away with it.

    So...um, I am having a tough time affording to pay of the amount due for this art school, and each day, something gets in the way of me getting approved for a loan.
    The excitement of going to an art school becomes a slow progress of descending into depression as the deadline draw ever so closer each day. I feel like its not worth it anymore now.

    so...if I can't pay off the amount due, how hard is it to be a self-taught animator?

    I've always been one of those people who has a few close friends over a dozen or so regular friends you might hang out with rarely. But reaching the point where my friends are moving and it's frankly getting depressing. Problems galore in life then one of my friends just moved across the globe to Hawaii (which I'm happy as hell for him) but now even communication with phone is going to be a pain since I'm east coast and it's like a 6-7 hour time difference.


    Then on top of that I busted my foot on a waterslide a few days before he left and it's still swollen a bit. Never wear glasses to a waterpark. Riding down the waterslide then realize "Oh shit, at the bottom my glasses will get flung off and maybe break". Grab the glasses but then have only one hand which throws off the balance and BAM.

    Well this is amusing.

    Between 2003 and 2008, 108 people died from cattle-induced injuries across the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s 27 times the whopping four people killed in shark attacks in the United States during the same time period, according to the International Shark Attack File. Nearly all those cow-related fatalities were caused by blunt force trauma to the head or chest; a third of the victims were working in enclosed spaces with cattle.
    What's more, with cows, it's personal. Sharks just think you're a delicious seal and mistakenly take a taste. But here's some detail from the CDC report on bovine murder:

    In about 3/4 of the cases “the animal was deemed to have purposefully struck the victim.”

    One of the murderous bulls had been hand-raised and bottle-fed by the victim and his family.
    If you don't believe it, check out this story of a vengeful bull in India:

    The bull apparently kept a watch on frail Bhoop Narayan Prajapati, 65, and attacked him when he was having his morning tea, a day after he had thrown hot water on it for sitting in front of his hut. Prajapati ran inside his thatched hut to escape, but the bull followed him, pushed him to the ground twice and gored him.

    Apparently there was a long history between this man and this bull: Six months earlier, he hit the animal with a stick and it retaliated, landing him in the hospital for a month.

    And not only did the animal plot its revenge for months, it made sure its attack had been successful, and after he died, it returned to gloat:

    The bull followed the man when he was being taken to a hospital and later appeared at the crematorium during his funeral.
    DAMN, and that was in India! Imagine what a cow in any other country would do if it could discover the reason it was raised on a farm?

    Yeah yeah, they should make a movie out of it. Like the farmers test out a new steroid that accidentally gives the cows sentience, and they start a revolt.

    I think that's the million dollar question.

    The current idea seems to be that what we call "Space" is actually a "thing" in and of itself that contains a lotta stuff.

    Perhaps the "area" before the Big Bang was "Really Empty Space."

    Then I guess you get into the questions of how big is Really Empty Space, where did it come from, is there anything on the outside of it, and where did the Banging stuff come from?

    Well, yeah. There's the multiverse theory, and I think someone explained it as if the entirety of it all is like a big cheese, and all the infinite number of universes are holes in the cheese. And the cheese between those holes is constantly expanding...

    What's interesting though is that some scientists calculated that all the matter and dark matter (I think) of the universe "adds up" as +-0. Which proves that the universe could have come out of absolutely nothing.

    Tip of the day
    NEVER put regular dish washing soap in the automatic dishwasher. I have spent the last hour cleaning up bubbles off my kitchen floor. Its like the blob is coming out of my F'ing dishwasher. It was a two foot carpet of bubbles where tile should be!
    To make things worse the woman has been away for the weekend and she just called to say she will be home in two hours. Its like I'm trapped in a sad mundane version of the movie Risky Business without any good looking people and no one got laid.

    I always imagined that you were some sort of crazy survivalist living far away from people in the woods and eating caterpillars when you weren't painting. And this pretty much confirms my theory.

    I'm glad I read that. Because otherwise it'd have been only a matter of time before I did it myself.

    I can see it now. I run out of those cube thingies and just put in dish soap because it's "close enough" and don't feel like driving to the store.
