I'm interested in those kid/cartoon and anime witch shows you mentioned. (unless it's actually W.I.T.C.H which I've watched a thousand times)

It wasn’t gonna be W.I.T.C.H at all! I actually don’t recall that one, lol.

Pacifiers On A Budget

As requested by several anons, a list of pacifiers that aren’t super expensive. I’ve also included pacifier buddies (cute stuffies that clip onto your pacis) and pacifier clips (you attach these to your pacifier then clip them on your clothes, so you don’t get your pacis dirty anymore if you drop them.)

I’ve included adult pacifiers and pacifiers designed for babies. You can use whichever you prefer, but adult ones will be more comfortable and can be used longer as a result. If you’re worried about baby ones hurting your teeth, they’re not going to mess up the alignment or anything, as long as you stop using them if your mouth, jaw, or teeth start hurting. If you want to modify a baby pacifier to have an adult nipple, I shared a guide here.

This is an image of a canon Scout, really, that’s… that’s real.

This is the last concept art before his model was created.

This image shows the Scout model has at least the width of Soldier’s for the shoulders. Soldier, the one who holds a firing rocket launcher without issue every single day taking the kickback in order to fly, and is generally shown as big rough and tough. He does have a smaller waistline, but that’s not actually condemning in and of itself, so much as Soldier seems to have a bit of padding ‘round the middle if you get what I mean.

“But he’s got such skinny arms!”

Motherfucker have you even looked at the art style. EVERYONE HAS SKINNY UPPER ARMS unless they’re portrayed as heavier in weight. See the green? That’s how much skinnier than Demo each arms are. BUT LOOK. SOLDIER’S SCRAWNY. I mean shit, his jacket falls in such a way as to show his upper arms are TEENY. Holy crap. I did not even notice until I did this. Wow. Scout’s arms just look tiny because he’s got his shirt sleeves rolled up and so there’s a sudden visual drop off. That’s it. That’s the explanation. Don’t even look at Spy, his fucking thigh gap alone… Oh, and as a reminder, all three of the aforementioned classes have been shown to have extra weight. That’s muscle AND whatever’s gathered on their arms to match their little pudge bellies. Scout’s not overly skinny, he’s just athletic fit. Those arms aren’t that twiggy despite what people think. That lady commenting on his broken arms in the comic? I’m pretty sure going off this, she’s just an unreliable narrator. He may not be some buff daddy, but wiry and/or athletic =/= weak child-like kid.

These gifs show him not only beating the shit out of a Heavy in the Meet The Scout video, but in the first gif the Heavy gets a hold on the bat, pulls it away from his neck, and Scout yanks it back with a combo of his strength and his weight. He cannot weigh as much as Sasha okay, Sasha is 331 pounds, rounding up. Scout does not weigh 300 pounds. He does however completely overpower someone who regularly lifts that much, with a single yank. That’s, what, over 300 pounds of force, and they’re both yanking in a direction that does not benefit them. Can you imagine how hard he hits with the bat? OH YEAH THE SECOND IMAGE SHOWS US THIS. APPARENTLY SO HARD THAT MISHA BENDS IN HALF BACKWARDS. What, he’s gotta be like 270? 300? Just in terms of weight let alone his muscles? And Scout flipped him backwards from a tense stomach hug position that actually meant he was resisting. Plz m8 that’s some fuckin’ force.

Not to mention in the second he jumps up a typical freighting box like 'hey just wandering up the steps here.' The most common boxcars are 10’-10" to 11’ high. That’s 11’. He just jumped 11’ feet in the air from what is barely a running start. That is give or take 5 inches a 126 Inch leap. To accomplish that you have to leave the ground at a speed of 7.92 m/s vertically no matter how much you weigh. He needed a force of 19,585 Newtons against the ground based on about a weight of 163 pounds to reach that speed assuming he bent his knees at an angle of 60 degrees, which it appears he does. Salt water crocs slam their jaws shut with 3,700 pounds per square inch (psi), or 16,460 newtons, of bite force. A 2008 computer model estimated that a 21-foot (6.5-meter) great white shark would produce nearly 4,000 psi (17,790 newtons) of bite force. A Scout kicks off casually at strengths rivaling the bite of a Great White.

Can we skip the commentary that Scout’s are weak and scrawny yet? Can we? CAN WE FUCKING MOVE ON NOW?

January 16th, 1945

Wet snow coats your boots and creeps into your last good pair of socks. Every muscle in your legs screams for relief as you sprint from Axis light machine gun fire. What will become known as the Battle of the Bulge has pushed Allied forces back across the German border and into France, as you and your squad desperately try to regain footing. Supplies and rations have been low since the start of this particular conflict, and you grasp at your chest to make sure the last spare clip you possessed was still with you. A 7.92 round whizzes past your arm. Flinching, you dive into an unoccupied trench.

Before you can regain your composure and eject the empty clip from your rifle, you are gripped by a frenzied hand. Your ears ring. Vision grows blurry. Briefly, you think this is the end as adrenaline pumps through your body. You bring the butt of your rifle to the face of your assailant with a firm thwack, knocking the figure over into the trench beside you. Without thinking, you eject an empty clip with a deafening ping and stuff a fresh one in, reemerging from the trench to fire off three rapid shots at the machine gun crew behind you. Though now nearly 60 meters off, its fire is deafening.

As you duck back down, you notice the fatigues of the man you incapacitated. A pale green with a woodland camouflage helmet and backpack. Unaware, you laid out one of your own with a swift knock aside the head. Cold blood runs through you, stopping any planning of heroic action in your brain. 

Your squad, once unbreakable and never downtrodden, had finally been brought to its knees. Once a band of sixteen was now three: Williams, missing in action, Baker, now unconscious in the trench next to you, and yourself.

Williams was no older than 17. A class clown who never grew out of it, dropped out during his junior year of high school and snuck into the army. His particular brand of comedy consisted of finding the quietest guy in the group and pestering him until he exploded. Even if you felt bad for Baker, it was hilarious at the time. It stopped whenever the first three men in your squad were struck down. He was quiet from that point on. You think the reality of the war had finally hit him, as well as the permanence of death. It really isn’t something a 17 year old should be concerned about, much less experiencing it first-hand. He’d disappeared two days ago, after your squad had been split up in the forests. You looked at deserters with a burning disdain, regardless of their reasoning. But for Williams, you could only turn a blind eye.

Baker was the old soul of the group. 31 years old as of last November, he was the eldest. Tough talker when he spoke, hard drinker when he could, a real man’s man. He’d sworn up and down at Williams after his constant teasing and goading, but in private, admitted to you that he was the closest thing he think he’d ever have to a son. He was a charming guy, with hopes and aspirations that he mostly kept to himself. More than a few times you saw him dole out sage-like wisdom to the men in your squad regarding issues back home, or just life in general. He’d seen and been through quite a lot, as you learned over the last year. He wasn’t convinced he’d make it out of Germany in anything bigger than a coffee can, and confided in you to take care of Williams, if and when you got back stateside.

As you flipped him over, your worst fears came to light. A red pool had formed over Baker’s chest, dampening his uniform where a round had struck him before you arrived, directly through his right lung. Your eyes darted to the bruise now adorning his temple where your Garand’s butt struck it, then his chest, then back to the bruise. His eyes, now glossy and lifeless, burned holes into your mind. Anger welled in your very being, as you shook him, shouting his name into the cold, German night. No response. 

This was Hell. You weren’t a believer before, but you are now. Hell wasn’t a place of fire and brimstone, a place where sinners are lashed for eternity for committing humanity’s greatest sins. It was here on Earth, on the border of these godforsaken countries, between living to see 14 of your brothers die at the hands of an uncaring, unwavering enemy, and surrender. This was your own personal Hell.

Just behind where Baker used to stand, you notice a curve in the trench, snaking back into the woods. Your last chance, even if you felt you should just climb above into no man’s land, and face the embrace of death waiting for you. After a deep breath, you ready your rifle and approach, two figures round the corner and obstruct your view, stopping you dead, as you hear words that shake you to your very core:

“Peter, piper, picka, pan, Dan is the man wi-

SELF-PROJECTION HERE I FUCKING COME (humblebrag i ended chemistry with a 99 A final average suck my dick)

-There’s this game that they play every week on the SmartBoard in class where you’re given a name of five elements on the periodic table and you have to find them in as short of time as possible.
-Charlotte kicks ASS at that game. They play with the 32 most common elements, and she always shaves down her time. 8.29 seconds. 8.14 seconds. 7.92 seconds. She’s unstoppable.
-Marvin, always the competitor of the group, is right behind her. His record is 8.02 seconds.
-One day, he’s feeling PISSED because she just keeps winning. So he raises his hand all sweet and all and asks, “Ms. Green, Charlotte obviously needs a handicap. She needs to do all 114 elements.”
-You know when she agrees, there’s a simultaneous comedic gasp among the entire class. “What?!” they’re muttering. “ALL 114??? We’re still in the first semester!”
-Charlotte, being the BADASS SHE IS, just shrugs and says “ok.”
-The entire class begins chanting “Char-lotte. Char-lotte. cHARLOTTE. CHARLOTTE!” over and over again, banging their fists on the tables.
-She starts the board up.
-7.45 seconds.
-The entire class is cheering, papers are being thrown, Cordelia has run up to the front of the class to give her a kiss, and Ms. Green is applauding.
-And Marvin is standing there at his desk, his face red and full of embarrassment.
-Charlotte walks back to her desk, but not before pointing at Marvin and saying “Your turn.”
-He sits down in defeat.

Bomber killer

An Me 410B-(1 or 2)/U4 ‘Hornisse’ (Hornet) heavy fighter-bomber from either II or III./ZG26 “Horst Wessel” being moved to a hangar. Location unknown, most probably Germany, circa 1944.

This particular Me 410 was the Zerstörer (destroyer) version, armed with a 50 mm BK 5 cannon, plus, in this case two 20 mm MG 151 cannons on the nose. Other combinations included several 7.92 mm MG 17 and a pair of 30 mm cannons instead of the 50 mm gun.

For a while, during early 1944, the Me 410 achieved some great successes against unescorted Allied bomber formations, but the heavy and underpowered Me 410 was no match for real fighters. Once the P-38 Lightning, the Mustang, and Thunderbolt showed up, the Me 410 days were numbered. After a series of very costly encounters they were removed from anti-bomber duties.

Note the 5 ‘kill’ rings on the gun barrel.

Do the FAL

The easy route here would be making fun of the vaguely racist Rhodesian circle-jerk that follows this gun everywhere, but that’s a problem with the fanbase instead of the firearm.

Let’s start with the rifle’s origins: the FAL was originally developed right after World War II and was designed around Germany’s intermediate 7.92 Kurz round. After some testing and experimentation the Brits settled on a new .280 British round, which provided better performance than the classic .303 British with less recoil. The Americans, being American, refused to settle for anything under .30 caliber (because sometimes that whole “overcompensation” thing isn’t just a joke) and forced NATO into standardizing on the full-size 7.62x51. This means that instead of being a proper assault rifle the FAL instead became a battle rifle, with all the drawbacks that come with it - higher recoil, heavier ammo, and lower magazine capacity per size. The excess recoil from the larger round was so bad that many countries simply gave up when it came to full-auto with the FAL.

Oh, and just to top it off - even after forcing NATO into using the 7.62 FAL the U.S. still wouldn’t adopt it and chose the M14 platform instead, meaning the FAL lost to a glorified WW II rifle.

- Size: 7.92mm x 57 (8 x 57 mm versions shooter).

In 1934 the German army was looking for a compact and universal indestructible weapon to equip all their bodies. This task was entrusted to Sauer and Mauser companies, whichever is the latter model, called KAR 98K.

Undoubtedly the most remarkable feature was its sliding KAR 98K rotating shutter (lock) and long barrel (600 mm), which provided high precision over long distances, which is why it was used by snipers.

Visors such as ZF41 1.5x or 4x Ajack were mainly used. The only feature that distinguished them from other KAR 98K rifles was his highest caliber; 8 x 57 x 7.92 instead of 57, and using selected ammunition.
