Pinned toot

Please note, it's extremely rarely my intent to offend. If I cross a line, and it won't cost too many spoons, please let me know. You also most certainly have every right to block if you feel the need. This isn't a subtoot or comment on anyone else, just a note I realized I'd never made & pinned.

A penny saved is a penny earned! Unless you are a member of the CryptoPenny™ nano-investment club. Once enrolled, every penny earned gets "invested" with our patented QuantumScythe™ penny harvester. We don’t know how it works AT ALL, but 7 out of 10 times when you reconstitute the penny you get a second “shadow penny” that behaves just like a normal penny only angrier. Limited space, sign up today!

FA is down and can't get up? Has it tried looking at its contents? Oh. I see. It has and now it's so squicked it can't get it up. Nevermind.

A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Greetings," it said, "um. We apologise for abducting your leader. We did not notice her coming aboard when we were here last week."
A cat emerged from the spaceship and sat down to clean her paws.
"Here she is," the alien said.

I was apparently even more tired yesterday than I thought. Fell asleep on top of the sheets, without putting my glasses on the side table. Realizing they'd fallen off and I'd rolled into them was part of what woke me up. Thankfully no damage done.

anyone got any good resources for learning ASL?

You're training to be a warrior, a knight for the royal army, but one day you get hit by a runaway carriage, and you wake up in a strange, magic-less, modern world full of technology. With no way to get home and no use for a swordsman in this world, you have to find a way to fit in.

Cryptocurrencies lie at the intersection of crypto nerds and econ nerds, which explains why they are technically very interesting but overall just a complete clusterfuck

If you're building a constructed language, here's a list of sentences that's no longer live but I grabbed an archive of at some point. They're meant to help you develop and test your #conlang's syntax and could be helpful with building vocabulary as well:

Okay, a little bit of prep work for next quest post completed over lunch (including the first dice rolls).

"I think you ordered too much sunshine."

"It's summer, it's supposed to be sunny."

"How much DID you order?"

"Enough to make up for all the rain earlier, why?"

"The humans in this hemisphere are melting."

"Humans can't MELT."

"I didn't think so either but... look."

"YIKES."

"So can we return some of this sun now?"

"Can't. We have to use up the allotment."

"Poor things!"

"I'll order extra snow to compensate."

"Oh! Good idea!"

And while time travel rather than isekai I'm now thinking of the Biggles movie which links a modern (late 80s/early 90s) American advertising guy as a "time-twin" to the WWI titular pilot of the British Biggles books. Yanked back to WWI to help out in crises where Biggles and his team would otherwise fall (and once going the other direction leading to the line, "If you can fly a Sopwith Camel you can fly anything!" as Biggles gets behind the controls of a police helicopter)

*reads through a list of isekai stories that don't involve, "go to another world, become a warrior/knight/common-rpg-class, level up, rinse & repeat." Lawyer falls into fantasy world, sees fantasy world has courts and continues being a lawyer. Two in which a doctor/veterinarian continue their professions in the fantasy world. Guy falls into fantasy world, starts village for orphans. Guy is just outside magic circle that sends his class to fantasy world, does usual tropes but in RL world.

I have no idea how much sleep I actually got last night. Other than not enough.
