human generator

i made a height chart sort of with hrafen,varyja and rikyr. the feet/inches might be slightly inaccurate, sorry! i had to use an online converter. damn u america

anyway basically? most fornvar people are pretty tall (specifically the humans generally) and are probably some of the second tallest growing people in varden (dwarfed by the sveimunir)

the tallest fornvar group is the drakkyr , with the men averaging at about 180 cm. rikyr is conisdered quite tall however this is mostly due to his drakkappir conversion. the binding sort of makes everything… bigger i guess, so the drakkappir are all pretty tall.

the sjaevar tend to average at around 175 cm, so varyjas quite average. whats different about them tho is that both men and women tend to average at around the same height, which is pretty uncommon anywhere else in varden.

the skiptyr are surprisingly probably among the shortest people in var den, of course the halaraat being an exception, considering the rest of the people they live around. even so, hrafen is shorter than the average for a skiptyr male (the average being about 168 cm) so hes a tiny tiny boi. i suppose its pretty useful considering his role

Fact: Bakugou’s also a dragon shifter, he just never shifts cause he’s super fucking tiny and he hates it with a passion

For most species, bared teeth are a threat, even on earth. So it shouldn’t be very surprising that most alien species tend to respond poorly to a human smiling at them. Humans who spend a lot of time around aliens do their best to train themselves out of the habit, adopting (as much as they are physically capable) the expression of enjoyment used by whatever species they socialise with most. But it’s really hard not to smile when you see another human… Harder still not to smile back when one smiles at you. This leads to the common misapprehension that humans generally don’t get along with strangers.

When, by whatever series of events, a crew or team with a human member acquires an additional human or two, the atmosphere gets tense for a few cycles while the nonhumans wait for some kind of establishment of hierarchy to take place. Some humans humor the assumption and perform a mock battle in some public area - these are generally those who have encountered the scenario before and became tired of trying to explain.

Rap battles, trivia contests, simple sports matches and other activities that a human would recognise as popular recreational activities often feature in these dominance rituals. The participants find that the performance serves as a great ice breaker and so the practice is becoming increasingly common. It is likely, therefore, that the misinformation about human social strata will persist.

I am a Huge Nerd for alien and human interactions that go across tumblr (space Australia and Stabby come to mind) but like for real what about the human concept of luck? Each culture has its own, too, and also superstition so like this human will go nowhere near black cats but others are just like ‘oh kitty kitty kitty’.

Try to explain to someone that doesn’t understand that breaking a mirror is more than just a glass hazard. No it’s not a mystical mirror or a religious thing. It’s just a mirror, you broke it, now you get 7 earth years of bad luck. Is to the day? Who knows. But 7 years dude.

Or like that one person who always has stuff break around them. ‘Why are they banned from the engine room?’ 'Just trust us Nyrak.’

Or what about people who things always go outrageously right for. That person where any number of the things that happen should not even be able to happen, and yet here we are.

That person that has the luck/innate skill to balance anything on their nose.

Lucky numbers. The importance of the zodiac too, while we’re at it. “The stars are not in alignment” 'have you been reading that human newspaper again Marshal?’ “No, Lydia, shut up” ,Are your species sensitive to the stars, humans?, “Nyark you know if I could explain it I would but I honestly cannot”

Good luck explaining Murphy’s Law to aliens who do not have the concept of luck or cosmic mythical interference.

Why does this bot think there are clocks in every picture

(This is a post by a moderator, not the bot! We want to bring you the Science!)

This is an AI phenomenon called overfitting.  The sample data used to train an AI and the problems it will see in the real world will seldom match exactly. In this case, picdescbot was trained on an image collection with descriptions provided by Microsoft, and is describing images pulled from Wikimedia Commons. We can infer that the Microsoft collection has a lot of images labeled “clock” and “giraffe” because picdescbot seems to “hallucinate” those specific things over and over. It’s been trained to expect that those objects are everywhere! In particular it seems to think almost everything round is a clock.

Human toddlers do the same thing – for example thinking that every animal is a cat or dog – but they quickly outgrow it. And that’s why you’re smarter than a robot. For now.

Humans are ridiculous

I just want to throw my hat into the ring about the Humans Are Space Orcs trope that has been going around and I’ve been enjoying immensely.

You know how a large percentage of us have a fear of spiders? Even cripplingly so, like “kill it now I’m crying and breathing into a bag” kind of fear. So what if the aliens are monitoring our transmissions before making first contact, and see, for example, a bunch of Tumblr users discussing how scary spiders are?
Put that with how badass humans generally are (seriously, we invented surgery before we invented anesthetic and consume literal poison because we like the taste), how freaked out would the aliens be to learn that there’s something we truly fear? I can see it going down like this:
Human Steve: Tell us about FTL travel and your culture, we have much to learn from each other
Alien: Yeah yeah in a minute tell me about the spider threat are we safe right now or

Even better would be if Human Steve is not one of those people who is afraid of spiders at all. Like, he has a pet tarantula and puts wild spiders outside safely when they come into his bathroom, if he bothers with them at all. And the aliens are VERY CONCERNED about the little guys and he’s like ???? They aren’t??? A threat????
But then they consult with Human Bill, and Human Bill is basically Professional Spider Hater and goes on for a weirdly long time about how spiders are the actual devil and how black widows are really dangerous and let’s not even MENTION Australia. He gets the heebee jeebies and starts twitching and itching as he begins to feel phantom bugs on his skin.
Both Human Steve and Human Bill insist that the other is the weird one.
The aliens are more concerned than ever.

You suddenly realize you left Earth.exe open over night. What was supposed to be a simple simulation has instead generated a “Humans” folder that is rapidly increasing in size.

A recent Fantastic Beast Unicorn design. :)  Lately I’ve been more active with posting on my Instagram: @audreybenjaminsenart if you’re interested! 

Unicorn

M.O.M. Classification XXXX14

The Unicorn is a beautiful beast found throughout the forests of northern Europe. It is a pure white, horned horse when fully frown, though the foals are initially golden, and turn silver before achieving maturity, The Unicorn’s blood, and hair all have highly magical properties. It generally avoids human contact, is more likely to allow a witch to approach it than a wizard, and is so fleet to foot that it is very difficult to capture.

So basically I’ve got two moods - it’s either Humanity is a demon scourge, we spread like a virus and ruin everything and we’re so mean and awful the only way out is a new plague or People are inherently good, we survived thanks to our empathy and there is so much kindness in this world it breaks my heart. There is no in between.

The human attribute generator placed 1 on all your stats, but 11 on your luck, the max should have been 10. God watches in anticipation as you unknowingly went to your first boss fight.

Can I just talk about how much I love and appreciate Thomas Sanders?

His videos are interesting, whether they are Q+As or videos with his friends or videos with his characters/personas.
He puts a huge smile on my face and I’m really happy whenever I see he’s posted because I wanna know what creative thing he’s done this time. He’s entertaining, funny (does that mean the same thing?), interesting, just a generally amazing human being. (Also yo guys he’s really cute)

I would go on longer but I’m not sure I can put it into words how great he is. -Felix

When you speak of a Venus retrograde, most people immediately start worrying about their self-esteem, the stability of their relationships, the distance and maturity of their ex-partners, and their money. While all of these things are definitely related to Venus, and they will likely be affected by its retrograde, I think they’re very far from the point. Venus is the planet of pleasure, so nearly everything humanity generally enjoys is associated with it – sex, food, love, art, wealth, etc. When you have these things, they’re blessings. Sometimes we don’t deserve them but they’re often granted to us anyway. Venus retrograde is a period of learning to deserve, to earn, and to be grateful for those gifts. They may not come easily to us during the retrograde, and sometimes being dissatisfied is the way we are taught to appreciate & not to waste. When you complain about the negative happenings of a Venus retrograde, you’re falling into the oblivious selfishness of an immature Aphrodite. When you’re denied a gift you’ve gotten used to, remember how much you delight in it, but don’t mourn for its absence. Love it when it returns. Taking the favor of Venus for granted is what causes her to withdraw it from you.

Can u have the robot look at the famous black and gold or black and blue dress? See what or says.

Hi, human here.
I tried giving the bot the picture of “The Dress”, from the wikipedia article.

It said the description is “person wearing a dress“ (confidence level 61%),

and added the following tags: “clothing”, “indoor”, “table”, “sitting”, “standing”, “woman”, “wearing”, “top”, “white”, “shirt”, “cat”, “dress”, “man”, “holding”, “large”, “room”, “yellow”, “people”, “cake”, “group” (emphasis is mine)

As I mentioned in this answer, you can use the demo page for the service picdescbot uses to describe pictures or captionbot.ai (which uses the same service) to see how the service describes any picture you want.

Tonight, on Wonho’s V LIVE he came across a very negative comment calling him a fat muscle pig and essentially telling him to lose weight. Whether you have been following Monsta X and/or Wonho for a long time or not, please realize Wonho is very sensitive to comments about his looks especially his weight. The members have repeatedly mentioned wonho being insecure about how he looks. Wonho looks so defeated reading this comment that he APOLOGIZED and said sorry and he will work harder to look better for fans to like him. It’s not about Wonho being sensitive, it’s about Wonho, and idols in generals being human. Comments like these are very hurtful and detrimental to someone. Wonho is just a human like everyone else. Just because he is an idol, does not justify comments like this. Rather than talking about his looks, ask him if he ate, if he’s doing well, or even say I love you for that matter. Please never condone this behavior.

On the MEA Discourse (Possible slight spoilers)

Cuz I feel like I should say something about the recent chatter surrounding Mass Effect Andromeda:

mlm are allowed to be worried that there are no announced mlm squad romances and strong hints there may not be.

wlw are allowed to be worried that there are no announced wlw squad romances and strong hints there may not be.

queer people are allowed to be a bit miffed that we’ve seen 2 m/f romances confirmed but no m/m or f/f romances.

mlm and wlw are allowed to be a bit miffed that the shipside romances they are rumored to get have character models that were obviously made using the standard human character generator rather than specially rendered like squad members.

black people are allowed to be worried that Liam will be mistreated and miswritten the same way Jacob was, especially since they appear to share a writer. 

women are allowed to be miffed that male ryder has dominated the trailers and press previews of the game.

people of color are allowed to be disappointed that we have seen no signs of any Ryders of color and no indication whether the custom character creation will allow them to make Ryders that look reasonably like them.

If you want to attack or police the reaction of any of the above, please consider why they might be concerned. Please consider that marginalized people treasure what little representation that get in mainstream games, and that if Bioware backslides on it, they are left with even less.

And seriously, please consider that most of y’all didn’t make a peep when the complaints were mostly gamer dudes complaining about graphics and mechanics, but you’re suddenly out here crusading for Bioware when marginalized people start worrying that the story won’t reflect them. Consider why one you let slide and the other you’re finger wagging like all get out.

Let marginalized people be worried about representation, because 9 times out of 10, it turns out they were right to be worried. 

How much SJM writes

This is no way hate on ASOIAF (I read the first two books and enjoyed them), but they’re of comparable length to Sarah’s books (and the only other really thick books I’m familiar with). (Meaning acomaf, acowar, eos, qos,  tod)

A Game of Thrones came out in 1996 at 850 pages (so yes, longer than Sarah’s books). Two years later, 750 page sequel. Two more years, 1200 pages. Five years later (2005), 1100 pages. Six years after that, 2011, 1100 pages. Another six years and the sixth book isn’t out yet.

Substantial books. Obviously, GoT is one of the biggest names in TV at the moment because everyone follows it. Similarly, ToG is one of the biggest YA series at the moment.

[I’m not including ACOTAR in this, only QOS and beyond]

QOS-2015-650 pages

ACOMAF-2016-650

EOS-2016-700

ACOWAR-2017-700

TOD-2017-700

Now, to average those by publication time and pages etc

{sum of all the pages}/{years from first to most recent publication}

ASOIAF: 5000/15 = 333 pgs/yr

TOG: 3400/3 = 1133 pgs/yr

Now, these numbers feature rounding and aren’t uber precise but it’s an approximation. And maybe this can be critiqued because I picked GRRM who is notorious for being a slow writer.

But I’m not nitpicking that. Wyrd knows I hardly ever finish a fanfic and if I write a thousand words a day once a month I feel like queen of the world. My point isn’t to insult GRRM. 

My point is that SJM is writing a metric ton of words and pages every year. She also goes on tour for each book, and as we recently learned, has had her whole world turned upside down with her father. 

We’re spoiled. Most authors turn out a book a year, MAYBE two, or maybe every year and a half. And most of those books (at least the series I’m familiar with) are maybe half as long as ACOWAR. 

Again, this isn’t a critique of other authors. I write slow, lots of people do, and it’s not a crime.

But good lord cut the woman some slack. She’s a HUMAN not a word generator. Not an AI that can function without sleep/food/rest/emotions. An author is a person first. She has a family, friends, etc, and (some) people act like she should be shamed for being a bad author for needing an extra sixth months to not die of overworking herself.

Honestly, I don’t care if this is dramatic. Just… just be kind to people. Be patient. And think how much better they’ll be when the books aren’t rushed to high heaven.
