Rework of my Tianshan Day 4 Comic [Part 1]

This has been sitting in my drafts for a good few weeks now… ^^; I’m still not satisfied with how the next panel looks like– So instead of trying to fix it up like a normal person, I’ve been working on other stuff~ *whistles*

I have completed some of the other panels, but the story can’t continue until the 4th panel is done~ Hey, I just work in mysterious ways! 😂

Ah, I’m just gonna post it as it is now, and I’ll upload the rest at a later date! ;)

  • Jake Peralta: I have had a very long day. I am very small... and I have no money... so you can imagine the kind of stress I am under.
  • Amy Santiago: Occasionally you get that one person that says "I really like that one part of this joke" and you go, "Oh thank you that's my favorite part too." But no, in order for it to be authentic hopefully you have jokes that everyone can just get on board with and then you have a few things for yourself.
  • Charles Boyle: The more you do stuff, the better you get at dealing with how you still fail at it a lot of the time.
  • Rosa Diaz: Some babies will point at me, and I don't care for that shit at all.
  • Raymond Holt: When I was a little boy, I was more like a 67-year-old gay man that's kind of over it sexually.
  • Terry Jeffords: Everyone get out of my way! I just want to sit here and feed my birds.
  • Gina Linetti: I look like I was just sitting in a room in a chair eating saltines for like, 28 years, and then I walked right out here.
  • Kevin Cozner: I'll keep my emotions right here, and then one day, I'll die.
  • Cheddar: Why do people shush animals? They've never spoken.

After seeing the crossover promos I’m convinced that Kara played Peter Pan in her high school play. And she’d get carried away on the wire and start flying for realsies. Meanwhile the Danverses are facepalming in the audience like “dis bitch, istg.” I’m cool with that headcanon because being sexually confused over Peter Pan/Kara Danvers is already two of my favourite pass time anyway.

The Character Designs in Voltron Look Too Much Like Korra’s to the Point Where It’s Angering: An Analysis By Me

So I was talking to my friends on Discord about Voltron and we realized something: the character designs in Voltron look too similar to Korra’s to the point where it kinda pisses me off.

Sure, you can chalk it up to both of them having the same crew and animation studio, but so did Avatar, and that had a distinct style that set it apart from Korra.

(Although with a more mature tone, Korra needed a different art style that set it apart from its predecessor)

Let’s look it at two more examples:

Milo Murphy’s Law and Phineas and Ferb are both made by the same crew, anyone with eyes can see that. But while Milo has a more “realistic” art style, Phineas and Ferb is definitely wackier, if the designs of its titular brothers wasn’t a dead giveaway (also they take place in the same universe. So there’s that.

Second and last example: good ol Craig McCracken.

Same crew, VERY DIFFERENT STYLES.

Also, sure, you can say “Voltron is anime influenced, that’s why it looks like Korra”, and while that can be true, so was Teen Titans.

While having very obvious anime influences, Teen Titans’ roots were always in the DC Animated Universe, and you can clearly tell that, even when the over the top animation kicked in.

Also, as an aside note… Voltron is a SPACE EPIC!!! THEY COULD’VE DONE SO MUCH MORE WITH THE DESIGNS! THEY COULD’VE GONE KOOKY, WEIRD SCARY!!!!! THEY’RE IN SPACE?????

Instead we got Korra. In space. And worse.

why is everybody so upset people ship clalec? so far we had three episodes filled with angry looks, banter and sassy remarks, not to mention “you’re upset by the way jace is looking at her” and “if you really feel that way about her why did you help us”, generally alec being lowkey obsessed with clary and, let’s be real, some real chemistry game going on.

i’m personally not so big on hate-to-love relationships, but how are you all so surprised people who have not read the books jumped on clalec like thirsty wanderers on an oasis.

The nature of the Veil

I never post meta because I prefer to write it out, but Wikipedia has some really great animations of the harmonic series.  I saw it and thought… what if this is how the Veil works?  What if the Veil is the dissonance that disrupts the consonant, harmonic nature between the real world and the Fade?

Fundamental

First overtone

Second overtone

Third overtone

There are waveform animations over at Wiki, but this presents a few ideas to me regarding partial breaches of the Veil/thinning of the Veil.  I’m not going to go much farther than this conceptualization because I don’t think truly this is how magic works in Thedas, but when the Inquisitor says, “The Veil is more like a vibration,” this is what I think about.

“Ted... I don't get microwaves.”

Ted the Animator: “…what?”

Carl the Animator: “Microwaves.”

Ted the Animator: “Microwaves?” 

Carl the Animator:Microwaves.”

Ted the Animator: “…like, how they work?”

Carl the Animator: “Nah, I can google that. That’s the easy part.”

Ted the Animator: “…ok?”

Carl the Animator: “What I don’t get is why the manufacturers make the doors louder than a space shuttle launch.” 

Ted the Animator: “Oh. Do they?”

Carl the Animator: “Yes! Every other cooking method has a reasonable operational volume for use in quiet houses at night. Microwave doors, though? KACHUNG!

Ted the Animator: “I was completely unaware.”

Carl the Animator: “What, have you never made 1 A.M. pizza rolls or something?”

Ted the Animator: “…no. No Carl, I have not.”

Carl the Animator: “Oh, you live a sheltered life, my friend.”

Carl the Animator: “GPSs are mysterious, too. Why do they like to randomly take you down elaborate, windy, and slooooow residential routes?”

Ted the Animator: “Inaccurate maps, prolly?”

Carl the Animator: “Maybe… or, maybe it’s ‘cause they want to give time estimates, so they need a guinea pig to try the insane and obviously-bad routes just to see what happens?

Ted the Animator: “I’m sure there’s at least one conspiracy theory website about that.” 

Carl the Animator:And, while I’m at it, why are Froot Loops spelled in such a stupid way?”

Ted the Animator: “Yeah, that’s… that’s a little weird, I guess.”

Carl the Animator: “They could just as easily switch their random vowel swap and make it Fruit Luips, but you don’t see them using that, now do you.”

Ted the Animator: “…that wasn’t the direction I thought you were going with that, but ok.”

Carl the Animator: “And why is the Mattress Firm called Mattress Firm?!

Ted the Animator: “It means ‘firm’ like ‘business organization’, Car-”

Carl the Animator: “Terrible marketing. They should call it the Mattress Soft.”

Ted the Animator: “…you’re crazy, but at least it’s an endearing kind of crazy, Carl.”

Carl the Animator: “Hashtag lifegoals.”

oh hey, here’s an idea — how about instead of making a live-action Hollywood adaptation of One Piece, Oda hires a top-notch Japanese animation studio to animate the entire ‘what-if’ scenario of Sabo saving Ace at Marineford, and we get to see the ASL bros fighting side by side, their tearful reunion, them catching up with each other’s lives, and perhaps even going on a mini-adventure together, hmmm??

tangled-headphone-cord  asked:

I don't understand why it's wrong to befriend wild animals, especially if one lives alone/far from human settlements ( like those wildlife rehab places where workers bond with the animals) so it's not like the animal endangers itself just by coming there, I often see brought up that the animals would lose fear of humans in general, but.. one, is that really a problem if they're in a reserve anyway? Two, how come it would work like that? I thought wild animals are way less trusting (part 1)

compared to domesticated animals. And from my experience with dogs - I have a dog who acts like a playful puppy with my family, I’m pretty certain would never hurt us on purpose but barks at strangers and even on walks will let out a serious growl if they get too close, tolerates the dog she grew up with and plays with her daughter but is pretty aggressive with other dogs. Do wild animals not make that “everyone who wants my trust needs to earn it individually” distinction?

(This is going to be a fairly passionate response. I’m not trying to be a jerk, OP, I just have a lot of feelings on this). 

Let’s start with the first thing that jumps out at me here: your use of the word “befriend”. Not “interact with”, not “feed”, not “pet”. “Befriend”.  You’re looking for not just interaction, but an affiliative type of contact that hits a specific emotional state of being seen and recognized as important. Which leads to an immediate question of: this is a wild animal. Why do you think it wants to be your friend? Why do you think an animal that is not domesticated, not tame, that lives in a kill-or-be-killed harsh natural environment would find it worthwhile out to take time out of survival to have a mutually reciprocal relationship with a hairless primate? Why do you assume a wild animal is capable of that sort of friendship? 

I have a lot of complicated feelings about this whole question, but it comes down to the fact that humans to have decided that we deserve the friendship and affiliative interaction of every single living thing on earth and that it is okay for us to completely modify an animal’s life to gain it. I fundamentally disagree with that assumption. Animals are not here for us. Wildlife is not here for us. We don’t have the right to stick our noses into the lives of animals simply because we get warm fuzzy feelings from getting close to them (and somehow not getting our faces ripped off as we rightly deserve most of the time for trying). Half the species we try to expect affiliative interaction from are solitary predators, and many others aren’t species even capable of affiliative social interaction. Biophilia - the innate need to empathize with non-humans animals - is one thing, and that’s all well and good, but we don’t need to interact with or touch everything to fulfill it; that comes out of a weird modern mental complex that since the world was made for humans, it is ethical for humans to do whatever the hell we like with and to it, and that since humans are inherently above/better than/different from animals our jurisdiction over the universe also extends to their lives. I do not think we are outside the natural order - I do not think we have the right to insert ourselves into the lives of wild animals simply for our personal pleasure. 

Why? Our “friendship” with wildlife gets wildlife killed, in the long run, almost every single time. Human influence on an animal’s life majorly changes their behavior, their space use, their survival strategies, and their ability to actually act like an animal. None of this is good for survival. 

Animals habituated to humans as a source of resources stay near human habitats, and are not only at a higher risk of being hurt by people or cars but are also at a higher risk of being euthanized for being pests. Animals that consider people save still have fight-or-flight instincts and will lash out at well intentioned humans when cornered and will get euthanized for being dangerous, if not because they actually bit someone and have to be tested for rabies. Animals used to eating human food will often choose to search for human refuse above normal foraging behavior, and some animals fed too much human food will forever have the microbiome of their guts changed and may starve to death once human food is no longer available since they can’t digest their normal forage anymore. Some animals brought up in close contact with humans will seek out their company over those of conspecifics, and never mate, or never learn how to hunt and feed themselves if the humans move on. 

You asked why this is a problem for people who are far from population centers, or animals that are with rehabbers or on preserves. For the latter, ethical wildlife rehabbers and people who run preserves have made a commitment to keep animals wild. To do their jobs correctly, they should want the animals to never want to be around them again, because they are attempting to preserve nature - not make friends. People who try to “bond” with animals they’re rehabbing are selfishly fulfilling their biophilic urges with behavior that has been proven to decrease the survival rates of the animals it is their supposed duty to help survive. 

To the former - why, say, if you live in a cabin in the middle of nowhere that you have to parachute in to and then hike thirty miles to get to, you shouldn’t feed the bears or raise squirrels to snuggle you - aside from all the ways that human influence lowers survival rates without necessarily needing human presence to persist, I will refer to the idea that humans do not inherently deserve animal friendship. In fact, they do much better when we just leave them the hell alone. 

What people love about animals is their wildness, their difference from us. We can engage in our biophilic urges to love them for being wild from a distance if we want to keep them the things we love - we devalue what they are when we try to force on them the idea that they should love us back. 

(Also, have you met a wild animal? They’re not nice. Those stories you see on social media about people befriending wildlife are so massively misportrayed and overstated that you’d think it happens daily, but most cases actually involve people getting hurt or scared out of their wits. So if you want to try to befriend animals. you need to be okay with the fact that most of them will be completely in the right to want to maul you for trying, because that’s what makes them wild).

Concerning the baby possum post: Why mustn't you offer food or water to them? (I don't know the first thing about opossums, sorry if the answer to this is really obvious)

It’s generally a really bad idea to try to feed any baby wildlife because it’s highly unlikely you’ll be able to give them something with the correct nutrient concentration (and yes, this includes using kitten formula and goat milk, don’t do it). Wildlife rehabbers often talk about seeing animals coming in starving to death with stomachs full of cow milk. 

With a marsupial like a possum, it’s really hard to get it right because most marsupials’ milk concentrations change drastically in reaction to the suckling stimulus from the babies. When they get bigger, they suck harder, and suddenly the milk has more protein and less fat (as a random example). You’d be really unlikely to get the nutrient balance right, and they’re so tiny they can’t afford to be ingesting the wrong stuff. Better to let them be hungry so they can be fed the appropriate food ASAP than try to help and accidentally kill them.
