No matter your easygoing, sweet, cheerful or introverted nature, you are one of the best fighters out there and you always win no matter what, because you stubbornly go to extremes and you have the ability to go to the end of the universe and back, if it's required of you to get what you want. You fight till the very end and you know how to sit on the throne. Despite most people's (stupid) opinion, you are not a wallflower. You are a natural born leader who just seems dreamy and lost most of the time but that's because you're very intelligent and you think like no-one else does. When the topic of a conversation is brought, I bet you've already been overthinking about it.

You are not weak because you're a forgiving person, you are just one level above all those haters and you actually understand why people made those mistakes, and that's why you forgive - when you forgive.

ik lots of ppl r annoyed by the petscop censorship thing but in my honest opinión…..i think that’s what ARGs are all about, having to take a leap of faith w the creator in order to be progressively led to the Big Outcome.

hiding information from the audience is the name of the game for ARGs

anonymous asked:

Do you have penis, or a vagina? I don't seem to understand why many genderfluid people seem to get angered at the question, like are you that angered by people knowing what you pee with? Seriously, ask me if I have a vagina and my answer will be yes, there's no debate about it. Why is it such a big deal for you folks??

it’s an annoying question because you’re really just saying “haha ok so you’re nonbinary but like are you REALLY a boy or girl???” it’s annoying because me saying “im genderfluid” should be the end of it, it should be enough for you. you wouldn’t ask a stranger who introduces themselves as male or female “omg but WHAT DO YOU PEE WITH” -at least, you wouldn’t unless you had reason to suspect they were trans, or were 5 years old and had a childish urge to inappropriately talk loudly about peeing and genitalia. seriously, among people that are all assumed to be cis, this topic never comes up! know why? cause there’s absolutely no reason you would need to know what someone’s genitals look like unless you’re assuming it determines their gender, and you’re taking it upon yourself to do just that. you want me to either tell you i have a dick or tell you i have a vagina so that you can tell yourself “oh ok so they’re really male/female!” and completely ignore the fact that i already told you i’m genderfluid.

it’s invasive. it’s rude. it’s transphobic. we get angry when you ask because it’s a dumbass, disrespectful question. we don’t have to tell you shit about our bodies. mind your damn business

Hiya! Someone at lunch said there's a debate as to which Shakespeare character spends the most time dead on stage. I figured you'd know! Please help?

Oooh, that’s a fun question! I don’t know off the top of my head, to be honest, but if I had to guess, I’d say either Desdemona or Julius Caesar or Arthur. They all get big speeches over their bodies, which adds up to a lot of dead stage time.

I’m assuming we’re not counting the Ghost of Hamlet’s father.

Anyone got any suggestions?

 After reading a wonderful response by @northfey I thought i’d chip in some food for thought here.

Please don’t use mental illness as an excuse to purchase recasts. 

Mental Illness and recasts do not correspond in any way. Using your mental illness as an excuse as to why you “need” to purchase counterfeit items in order to live with your disorders is a terrible argument.

Yes, dolls can be a source of comfort and grounding, as they are to me, but saying that your mental illness requires you to purchase recasts is nothing more than selfish behaviour, and it paints a very negative picture of the rest of us who are also fighting an internal war every day of our lives. 

With the money you spend on multiple counterfeits, you could have paid for the therapy you need, or at least have purchased a legit doll. There are hundreds of legit dolls out there for the same price, or LESS than what a recast costs. You could even be saving yourself money for more important things by doing some research and finding inexpensive alternatives.

Don’t use your mental illness as a selfish way to justify theft. Get some help please. Ball jointed dolls are a luxury.

I highly suggest anyone struggling with mental illness not to depend solely on material objects as therapy and as a coping mechanism. Please seek help. 

  • Dave: I was always like "oh it's so clever how George had Maul get cut in half so there's no debate over if he died like with Boba" and then one day George was like "oh by the way we're bringing Maul back" and I was like "how does that work?" and he was like "you're gonna figure that out"

you know, it’s been said before and better than i could put it, but wtf is up with this website and the so-called belief of “aging out” of fandoms…like once you hit a certain age (usually about 18-20 or so) you’ve gotta get put out to fuckin pasture. like yeah interests change over the years and i get this website’s demographic skews toward the younger but honestly,,,,we’re allowed to still like things, mikayla, it may be a radical concept

anonymous asked:

Is there a situation where input lag is purposely added to a game? Theres ongoing debate in the fgc about sfv having 6.2 frames of lag on purpose due to online play, and how it relates to how they use their cfn to allow crossplatform play between pc and ps4.

Yes, that’s actually pretty normal. If you want online play, you need some amount of input lag to serve as a buffer so that both players will get the same results at the same time. The amount of lag will vary depending on the game, but it’s pretty normal to have some amount of input lag to provide a buffer in order to allow for fair gameplay. Let me show you what I mean. Normally, when Ryu presses the roundhouse button, the signal from Ryu’s controller goes in, gets processed by the machine, then the move starts. In a lagless environment, this is a timeline example of what would happen:

However, when Ryu is fighting Ken online, there’s not one single timeline, but actually three separate timelines - one for what Ryu sees, one for what the server sees, and one for what Ken sees. The difference is that these are not synchronous by any means, because it takes time for Ryu’s game to tell the server that he pressed the roundhouse button, and then it takes time for the server to tell Ken that Ryu pressed the roundhouse button. So it actually looks something like this:

If it takes 50 milliseconds (3 frames) to transmit data from Ryu to the server, and another 50 milliseconds to transmit data from the server to Ken, then Ken won’t register Ryu’s roundhouse button press until 6 frames after Ryu pushed the button. Ryu likewise would also not see Ken’s moves until 6 frames later. Obviously, this isn’t so good. 

Imagine this scenario. Ryu and Ken are right next to each other. At frame 0, Ryu presses roundhouse (startup time: 5 frames). This means that Ryu’s roundhouse will hit on frame 5. At frame 1, Ken presses jab (startup time: 3 frames), hitting on frame 4. In a lagless environment, Ken’s jab would hit before Ryu’s roundhouse on frame 4. But what if this were online with 3 frames of latency between each player and the server? 

If this happens online, Ryu’s roundhouse button press signal wouldn’t reach Ken until frame 6 (pressed on frame 0 + 3 frames of signal travel time from Ryu to server + 3 frames travel time from server to Ken). Ken’s jab signal wouldn’t reach Ryu until frame 7 (six frames of total signal travel time), and suddenly you have three different stories going on. Ryu believes his roundhouse (pressed on frame 0, hitting on frame 5) cleanly beats the jab that was pressed on frame 8. Ken thinks that his jab (pressed on frame 1, hitting on frame 4) cleanly beats Ryu’s roundhouse (pressed on frame 6, hitting on frame 11). The server receives Ryu’s roundhouse at frame 3 (0 + 3 frames travel time), Ken’s jab at frame 4 (1 + 3 frames travel time), and thinks that Ken’s jab actually stuffs Ryu out of his roundhouse at frame 7 (1 + 3 frames startup + 3 frames travel time). If the server is authoritative (as it should be), that means that it sends the signal to both Ryu and Ken that Ken’s jab beat Ryu’s roundhouse, which will then happen on frame 10 for both of them (server says it happens on frame 7, but it takes 3 frames of travel time for the signal to reach both of them). This is probably super annoying for Ryu, who pressed the roundhouse button 10 frames ago and still gets stuffed by the jab he didn’t get until 7 frames later, when the server decides that Ken’s jab won.

Now let’s assume that there’s an input delay of 8 frames. The same input timing happens - Ryu presses roundhouse on frame 0, Ken presses jab on frame 1. What changes? Because there’s the delay in the moves actually starting, all three parties now have enough time to synchronize the events before anyone expects the attacks to happen. This means all three will see the same events play out on the same frame numbers.

With an input delay of 8 frames, Ryu knows his roundhouse won’t register until frame 8, and won’t go active until frame 13. Ken knows his jab pressed at frame 1 won’t register until frame 9, and won’t go active until frame 12. The server has enough time to receive the input data from both fighters and then update them both with enough time to spare so that both Ryu and Ken will see the exact same thing happen on their screens exactly eight frames after they pressed the button. This input delay allows the server to keep them both in sync. The better the connection, the fewer frames of input delay there has to be in order to arrive at the same result. In this particular example, we could probably shorten it to 6 or 7 frames of input delay to maintain parity. If we could decrease the latency between Ryu and Ken, the input delay could be reduced further.

So yeah. That’s how online play works for almost all games played in real time. Synchronization is hard. Signals aren’t instantaneous; it takes a non-trivial amount of time to transmit data across vast distances. The only real way to handle that is by keeping enough of a time buffer. There are various (and similar) other ways of handling this; the famous GGPO method actually stores the last few frames of the game that have already passed, and retroactively inserts button inputs into the past and recalculates the game state in order to make the present synchronize up. This is what causes GGPO’s weird false positives, such as your game thinking you KOed somebody (and playing the sound effect for it), only to receive game data that retroactively undoes that event and keeps the fight going.

“But why not keep offline play without any input lag and just keep it for online play?” you might ask. They did that in past games. Unfortunately, this means that the online play is a fundamentally different experience than offline play. That’s not good if you want to foster an active global competitive community, because it means that anyone who can’t get local competition will be at a huge disadvantage. Keeping the experience consistent for everyone online and off will allow all players to practice and improve at the same game.

Got a burning question you want answered?

I’m confused why theres is so much debate over whether Hermione is a POC or not. True, her race is not specified, but Rowling makes comments like Hermione blushes pink, and in Prisoner of Azkaban it states ‘her face was white with fright.’ Rowling also makes it a point in describing characters like Angelina Johnson as being a 'pretty black girl’ and Lee Jordan as being 'a black boy with dredlocks.’ She would have done the same with Hermione.
