I love that both Aiba and the other host of Getto Sports probably walked away from the show with a LOWKEY DEEP ABIDING CONCERN for Shoma Uno’s entire existence (because #relatable)

  • Doesn’t play team sports bc he’s not great at interacting with more than 2 people at a time
  • Apparently the guest on Getto Sports who has the least amount of confidence ever lololol
  • Leg muscles too big and jeans too tight to ride a tiny bicycle
  • Doesn’t get angry when he misses things in practice and just doesn’t say anything
  • Apparently has no interests, according to Keiji
  • Doesn’t get the point of sightseeing when overseas so they don’t even bother asking him anymore
  • Forgot where he went for Worlds
  • Really sucks at dancing off ice so never does it 
  • The most difficult thing he’s done in his life is eat his vegetables
  • Basically survives off gyuudon, steak and meat hot pot 3 times a day
  • Stumbles often when he walks on land (about 5 times per day)
  • The insides of his bags are super messy/dirty
  • Did magic
  • Casually beat the darts master at darts (and then immediately added it as an interest on his official profile)
  • His way of clapping
  • His face while watching video clips does not change

Vitamin C & Guinea Pigs

Guinea pigs are one of the few animals that cannot produce their own vitamin C and must get it through their diet. Low vitamin C is one of the most common causes of disease in guinea pigs and can lead to respiratory infections, scurvy, dental disease, and death. Anytime I have a sick guinea pig as a patient, I almost always give a Vitamin C injection because they are too low.

Guinea pigs need about 25 mg of vitamin C a day, 40 for pregnant sows. While pelleted diets do contain added vitamin C, by the time you purchase a bag most of it has been degraded. Water additives also are quickly degraded and most guinea pigs couldn’t drink enough water to get the right amount anyway.

The best way to ensure your guinea pigs are getting enough vitamin C is to offer it through fresh foods every day. Here is a handy list of foods and how much you have to feed each guinea pig a day to get around 25 mg.

Guava- 1.1 tbsp

Red Bell Pepper- 2.1 tbsp

Green Bell Pepper- 3.4 tbsp

Kale- 1/3 C

Parsley- 1/3 C

Cauliflower- 4 flowerets

Broccoli- 1/3 C

Our party is trying to get on a boat to return a lost trader girl to her family, a couple islands away. We attempted to talk to the captain of a shabby-looking ship to see if he could take us there.

Me (OOC) “OF COURSE HE HAS SCURVY! THEY’RE PIRATES! Oh. Oh wait. They’re pirates…”
Dm: “You… didn’t realize they were pirates?”

My favorite part of episode 7
  • Justin: I’ll take it.
  • Guard: Oh, uh, okay eager beaver.
  • Taako: I hope this is Gogurt.
  • Guard: Uh, it’s- it’s not, it’s brandy, but it’s uh, it’ll help.
  • Justin: I tried it, and it is Gogurt.
  • Griffin: No, it’s—
  • Travis: Roll for Gogurt.
  • Griffin: No, I—
  • Justin: It’s a character choice I’m making, it’s definitely Gogurt.
  • Griffin: Okay, but see, the flask is not a character—
  • Travis: Taako tastes Gogurt whenever he drinks libations.
  • Griffin: Everything Taako drinks magically transmogrifies— that was the first spell Taako ever cast, and now it’s a terrible curse.
  • Justin: And I can’t get it off.
  • Clint: Gogurtation.
  • Taako: Everything tastes like Gogurt, darling.
  • Griffin: It’s a Sisyphean curse, uh, he thought it was going to be 24/7 Gogurt party, but no, he’s got like mad scurvy. Um. okay, so you –

  • Travis: Read a book, Griffin.
  • Taako: Read a book.

“What are you doing, Mr. Fraser?” 

Grey asked, in some bewilderment. Fraser looked up, mildly surprised, but not embarrassed in the slightest. “I am picking watercress, Major.” 

“I see that,” Grey said testily. “What for?” 

“To eat, Major,” Fraser replied evenly. He took the stained cloth bag from his belt and dropped the dripping green mass into it.

“Indeed? Are you not fed sufficiently?” Grey asked blankly. “I have never heard of people eating watercress.”

“It’s green, Major.” In his fatigued state, the Major had suspicions that he was being practiced upon. “What in damnation other color ought a weed to be?” he demanded. 

Fraser’s mouth twitched slightly, and he seemed to be debating something with himself. At last he shrugged slightly, wiping his wet hands on the sides of his breeks. 

“I only meant, Major, that eating green plants will stop ye getting scurvy and loose teeth. My men eat such greens as I take them, and cress is better-tasting than most things I can pick on the moor.” 

Grey felt his brows shoot up. “Green plants stop scurvy?” he blurted. “Wherever did you get that notion?” 

From my wife!” Fraser snapped. He turned away abruptly, and stood, tying the neck of his sack with hard, quick movements. 

Grey could not prevent himself asking. “Your wife, sir—where is she?” The answer was a sudden blaze of dark blue that seared him to the backbone, so shocking was its intensity. 

Perhaps you are too young to know the power of hate and despair. Quarry’s voice spoke in Grey’s memory. He was not; he recognized them at once in the depths of Fraser’s eyes. Only for a moment, though; then the man’s normal veil of cool politeness was back in place. 

My wife is gone,” Fraser said, and turned away again, so abruptly that the movement verged on rudeness. Grey felt himself shaken by an unexpected feeling. In part it was relief. The woman who had been both cause of and party to his humiliation was dead. In part, it was regret. 

Neither of them spoke again on the journey back to Ardsmuir.
