In my opinion, English NEEDS a singular form of "they"/"them"; since those can also refer to a group, it gets confusing in text. May 5, 2021

        "My friend Sam had to get their car fixed. I hope they can pay for it."
        The thing is, it IS already singular.It may not seem like it because the pronouns are mostly used for groups in a lot of media, but still Even if you see someone and don't know what their gender is, you would subconsciously refer to them as they. e.g. "Wow, they have such a cool car."

        It's Latin that needs a singular they, not English.

        E3 and MAGFest in particular I feel like I have to see before I die. E3 for obvious reasons, MAGFest is all about game music and there are live chiptune concerts and stuff and I love chiptune, where else do you find that?

        What, chiptune? Probably YouTube for OST remixes, and probably SoundCloud or whatever for original 'tunes that can have a price tag without risking lawsuits (unlike OST remixes)

        It did get DMCA'd, which is why development ceased at 3.6; but many mods based upon it have been made, the community even patched out 3.6's memory leaks just a couple years ago. Project + is considered to be the truest successor to Project M.

      I like how superhero shows/movies rarely ever care about collateral damage - sure, go ahead and destroy the city! It'll be rebuilt ASAP!

        I was sitting there pausing, about to say "but"... and then I realised I mostly watch subversions of the superhero genre. That or they are battling against some actual "if we don't then the city is dead anyway, still a net positive".
        Though the more amusing one is "how rich is Batman? Now if rather than shiny suit and car and gadgets he sorted out jobs for his city/region".

        Not sure what you mean cause in the MCU, collateral damage is what caused the Civil War among the avengers due to the Sokovia Accords (the Captian America Civil War movie) which referred to their collateral damage done during fights in various cities. So basically both Marvel and DC have dwelled on the topic, the two big superhero companies.

        Hilarious...and, for sure, problematic. Accidentally sending one of those to your boss or when submitting a resume, angering the recipient AND permanently, silently, muting the email chain? Yeah, makes sense why it wasn't kept.
        Still sounds bloody hilarious, though.

      1. RichardTheKing
        RichardTheKing
        Kill me now, before the brain death this bloody tutorial causes gets me. It's for a Python/Mininet subject - and, like most of my university subjects thus far, it doesn't give out solutions for incorrect quiz questions or weekly Lab exercises. How are you supposed to learn?

        And, since this tutorial is the *entirety* of the uni's classes for this subject, and it combines both pre-grad and post-grad students into one (despite the two having different subject IDs), it bloody well skipped Lab 7 (whatever that was meant to be) and gives us two Labs to do this week. Ugh.
        Please murder me.

      Is it just me, or is Espeon one of the best Eeveelutions? Decently-wide movepool, high relevant stats, good Hidden Ability.

        Flareon needs Speed and an actual physical movepool, both of which it lacks. Lastly, Umbreon - why no Magic Guard? All about stall, but that's slow and he just loses any momentum gained; what's he supposed to do against a Poison-type or Steel-type special attacker? Toxic's worthless, and Foul Play does minimal damage. All he can do is Roar 'em out; yay. Sigh...so many Eeveelutions need urgent buffs.

        I do share those opinions - and overall movepool coverage for all Pokémon has decreased since Sword/Shield removed Hidden Power and Signal Beam, for some stupid reason.
        Flareon desperately needs something like Rock Slide, Stone Edge, Wild Charge, Crunch, or something, since right now he's limited to Flare Blitz (recoil), Superpower (lowers Atk and Def after use), and Facade (only powerful if statused).

        Sylveon needs a Ground-type move (Earth Power?) for near-perfect coverage, and Glaceon would like it too, along with Power Gem (ice is sparkly, and Power Gem is an attack that uses sparkly rays of light; why not?). As you said, Energy Ball would be a sweet choice for the five special attackers here, but sadly they don't get it. Imagine if Espeon could get Aura Sphere...that'd be awesome.

        You've got a point with the inefficiency of Imperial but metric isn't any good either in our technological society. Computers do 99.999% of the world's measurement calculations, so if you really want to make a meaningful difference, advocate for a base16 measurement system instead of base10. Computers don't count with their fingers.

        Fahrenheit was supposed to be based off of human body temperature, with 100 being normal, but there were slight errors made so 97 or 98 is normal. 100 is usually a fever

I haven't seen many locked blogs before...surprised I didn't even get a Warning for that. Though they can't exactly punish someone for having an opinion, even if it is unpopular; I wasn't insulting another user or similar.

        Many cartoons suffer from art of varying quality, that can result in misshapen people. That's not an issue O'Brian has at all, thanks to his unique physiology. He's also a comedic dude too, furthering his appeal, and his redemption from crook to hero is quite compelling compared to the usual normie-to-hero background many others have.
