Rimworld is consuming my liiiiiife! *SOB*

What is it with me and games that throw randomly generated characters at you expecting them to die?? WHY DO I KEEP ADOPTING MORE CHARACTERS??!

Each one of them has their own story and this is ruining my LIFE!!

Guys, if you haven’t read “When Pigs Fly” by Jane Killion yet, you need to. It is my favorite dog training book to date and I’m not even done with it yet. Multiple times I have actually laughed out loud while reading it, the above paragraph an example of one such passage.

But seriously, it’s full of very useful information even if you don’t find yourself with a “stubborn,” “independent,” or “unmotivated” dog. And it also shows my Favorite Thing™ about dog training which is that it should be F U N!

Furthermore, “They [a retired couple] talk about fish that has disappeared from the fjord. In Norway cruise ships are permitted to dump overboard their greywater in the postcard-narrow fjord-arms. Furthermore the news article says that defecation in public by tourists, is already a problem; the village has one public toilet, and 200 000 tourists are expected in the summer season. At the top of the Flåm Line is the stop at Myrdal. At the start of the season, the snow was still thick.

Flåm Railway by Tony

half way up the valley and we stop at a frozen waterfall. As winter turns into Spring some waters Flåm currently receives almost 450,000 visitors a year. Most ride the 20-kilometre (12 mi) Flåm Line between Flåm and Myrdal, one of the steepest railway tracks at 1 in 18 (not counting rack railways) in the world. There are also a few spirals. A former rail station building in Flåm now houses a museum dedicated to the Flåm railway.

Lots of people are asking me how I trained MGP in yesterday’s video, so here are the basics of guinea pig training. Feel free to ask questions in the comments and I’ll try to respond. First, be sure your piggy is tame enough to eat from your hands, and will follow a piece of veggie if you lead them. Cut up some tiny bits of veggies (like carrots or lettuce) and those you’ll use as training rewards. Basically, you want them to associate a command = an action = getting reward. Piggies communicate with each other using some sound but mostly body language, so I use a simultaneous verbal command + hand gesture for each trick. Most piggies are terrible at differentiating between human noises (which is why even smart piggies rarely learn their own names), but they are quite good at responding to visual cues. Start with an easy trick, like standing up. Using a treat, get your piggy to rise on their hind legs, while saying your verbal cue and letting them see your hand cue. I say “stand up”, and make a rising motion with my fingers. Do this a bunch of times, leading them with food while doing your cues, and always reward them with a bite of treat at completion. Then, try to lead them with only your hand without holding food, but still cue them and reward them at completion. Do this a few times until they get it. Next don’t lead them at all, but still do your cues and always reward them when they do it. If they don’t seem to get it, go back a step. Practice it over and over, and voila your guinea pig can do tricks. Any other trick is basically the same steps. First lead them with food as you get them to associate your commands with the action and reword, and gradually phase out how much you’re leading them until it’s just command = action = reward.

SF/UF/US Brothers with a S/O that own a pet pig, like its a full grown pig that you would see at farms

Fun fact, my cousin has a rule at his farm. You can’t eat anything you name. They have a pet cow now.


UF!Sans secretly loves the pig. Pretends to be neutral to it. But nope. He feeds it table scraps and it is now sleeping in his and S/O bed. Together, with their combined power, Sans and the pig shove S/O out of bed.

UF!Papyrus hates the mess it makes. But he’s a reasonable skeleton, and if the pig is well behaved, and at the very least trained to do it’s business outside? Well then it’s not that bad.


US!Sans is on a mission. He’s going to train S/O’s pet pig to do tricks like those on Youtube. Sans puts the pig on a training schedule. Sadly, the pig is having none of it, and just keep waddling back inside. 

US!Papyrus loves the pig. He and pig regularly nap on the couch, and the pig has practically moved into his bedroom. Ever few minutes he has to open the door to let the pig in and out. Also the pig is mysteriously becoming covered in cheeto dust.


SF!Sans immediately introduces S/O’s pig to his pig, Teacup. Sans makes a battle body for S/O’s pig and begins training it. Somehow, both the pigs are becoming an unstoppable force. S/O fears for the safety of the human race.

SF!Papyrus shrugs. One more pig, alright then. He immediately adjusts the dinner preparations to include S/O’s pig, And just like Teacup he talks to it. Sometimes it seems like they carry out an entire conversation.

this is the video from Cesar 911 that National Geographic has been taking down. it is being reposted here under the Fair Use law, because quite frankly this needs to be discussed. this video is somewhat graphic and contains images of a dog attacking a pig bloody.

this French Bulldog had killed a young pig before, and in this episode of Cesar 911, Millan unleashes the dog in an enclosed area with multiple piglets. what happens is exactly what anyone with any common sense regarding animals should expect to happen: the dog attacked one of the young pigs. Millan’s plan was to imprint a “positive experience” of pigs on the dog, but what ended up happening was the dog attacked a pig while another handler held the pig in place. in response to this, Millan puts the dog in a down and points at it while making his trademark TSST noise. he then releases the dog, who, to nobody’s surprise whatsoever, once again attacks the pigs.

this is not a man that deserves television shows or magazines telling the general public how to deal with their dogs aggression issues. this is nothing more than unnecessary torture for the sake of television. this is absolutely disgusting. shame on you Cesar Millan. shame on you National Geographic for trying to cover this up.

One thing I love about steven and gregs relationship

Their bond of music. Ever since I was a little kid my parents would play music and we would sing along. My mom and dad always did classic rock metal motown kind of stuff. Like Id sing crazy train and war pigs on way to kindergarten lol
