ok but what is up with the symbol change?

rosesprite retained the normal light symbol, which seemed to serve as an indication that she continued to be a god tier light player. (unlike davesprite and jadesprite, who lacked symbols as they were prototyped before god tier.)

but jasprosesprite switched to this symbol. the light symbol in transit - partial eclipse.

or, that’s one way of looking at it. it could also be mix between a dreamer outfit moon and the light symbol. (note that, since the color is inherited from the sprite and not the symbol, it’s not technically possible to distinguish between the prospit and derse dreamer emblems.)

it’s also not inconceivable that jaspers has his own aspect, normally hidden because he is not a sburb player, but exposed because he has merged with a god tier sburb player. hussie has stated in meta (perhaps in jest) that there may be up to 48 aspects - is jaspers one of these?

or, is jaspers void? after all, the void symbol is eight crescents:

the point is, is jasprosesprite now a double-aspect god tier? is she even still a god tier?

Mitt Romney said at last night’s debate that he wants to provide “relief” to the middle class. Based on what his tax plan would actually do to middle-class families, we’re not sure that word means what he thinks it means.

story time:

so i get in the elevator in the lobby of my dorm building, and there’s this kid just low key sitting in the elevator, he sees me and smiles

when I get in and push “12,” he goes “yesssss” so i’m like “what are u doin buddy” and he’s like “tryna hit every floor without hitting any buttons”

so i’m like “how long u been at it” he goes “34 minutes”

34. Minutes.

can u believe that

OrlandoI myself am often surprised at life’s little quirks. You see, what I told you before about saying “please” was true. It intrigued Trollando, as did my descriptions of your beauty. Finally, Trollando decided something. He said, “All right, Orlando, I’ve never had a ghost writer. You can try it for tonight. I’ll most likely kill you in the morning.” Three years he said that. “Good night, Orlando. Good work. Sleep well. I’ll most likely kill you in the morning.” It was a fine time for me. I was learning to fangirl, squee, anything anyone would teach me. And Trollando and I eventually became friends. And then it happened.

Orlando’s Wife
What? Go on.

OrlandoWell, Trollando had grown so infamous, he wanted to retire. So he took me to his cabin and told me his secret. “I am not the Dread Fangirl Trollando,” he said. “My name is Mos Def. I inherited this blog from the previous Dread Fangirl Trollando, just as you will inherit it from me. The man I inherited it from was not the real Dread Fangirl Trollando, either. His name was Jeff Goldblum. The real Trollando has been retired fifteen years and living like a king in Fan-tasia.” Then he explained the name was the important thing for inspiring the necessary fear. You see, no one would surrender to the Dread Fangirl Orlando.

Is everything clear to you?

Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion. That is just being “in love” which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and this is both an art and a fortunate accident. Your mother and I had it, we had roots that grew towards each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms had fallen from our branches we found that we were one tree and not two.

What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend than by learning about these weird-looking limbless amphibians that lovingly eat their mom’s skin! If that’s not love then I just don’t know what is.

Remember, never go skin against a Caecilian when death is on the line.

If you’re not watching Gross Science then you really should be (but not while eating).
