Well, one of the ones I'm wanting is Anomalocaris.

I mean, look at the thing: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anomalocaris

I mean, if you want an anorith tattoo, just go for it. There's nothing wrong with rock/bug :P

I am interested in growing my hair longer but don't have much clue in how to care/style it.

I am born male, white; and currently only wash daily with anti-dandruff shampoo.  I try to brush it more often now so it's not a total mess.

I know very little of hair caring, so equip your grain of salt, but I think here's some good general advice: don't use shampoo every day, it dries out the hair or skin, so take a day in between foaming it up or use shampoo thats less intense. And add a round of hair conditioner/balsam/whatever it's called in English after you've shampooed it

It depends on your hair type. Everything depends on your hair type, really.

Wash as needed and tie it up with a hair tie. Hard to go terribly wrong with a simple low tail, heh. Conditioning is... more to preference -- I actually don't like how floofy the stuff makes my hair, so I just use shampoo, ferex. Hair spray or gel will definitely make it easier to style, but... at least in personal experience, that shit makes your hair feel just absolutely goddamn terrible. Like someone replaced your noggin' cover with dried out straw. Would not recommend.

Best advice if you're going any route that involves hair ties, though? Hair dresser suppliers sell that stuff in 100+ packs. Get a couple years worth in one go, for cheaper than usual per unit.

I went that route a few years ago. Few basic things I wish somebody had told me:
- While you're growing your hair there will be a period when you can't yet tie it up, but - depending on your specifics - it may not lend itself to sensible arrangement, and you may end up looking like crazy person for a few months. Figure out a stop-gap measure beforehand. I don't know - a headband or something. Some sort of a hat is good, but you might not want to wear it everywhere. Maybe some hair product for styling. Myself, I couldn't come up with anything that wouldn't itself look crazy on me, so the crazy person look it was.
- You can't comb this shit. Get a hairbrush. Something delicate enough not to irritate your scalp, as you'll be using it a lot.
- You'll suddenly start noticing hair everywhere. It's not that you'll be losing more (maybe a bit, due to all that brushing and general pulling), but what used to be few centimetres long will now be at least a few times longer. Make it your daily routine to brush at least once, so that you can collect all the loose hair at once instead of randomly leaving it everywhere during the day. Or losing it when you shower - clogging the drain can be an issue.
- You can sleep with your hair tied up. You probably should, too, so as to prevent excessive tangling. Heck, you may even be able to wash it tied up.
- I tried using conditioners, but it felt like too much of a hassle for too little gain. But YMMV. I prefer just water most days, with shampoo every now and then. I find the natural lubrication kinda works with long hair (with short hair it just looks greasy). If your scalp is often itchy or dandruff-prone, skipping shampoo might not be an option.
- Once your hair is long enough to be tied up, always carry an emergency tie with you. They will break every now and then so it's good to have a peace of mind.

See, in contrast, my hair type doesn't tangle readily and I don't need to brush it. This is why I think we need to hear more about your hair before any useful advice can be given.

Honestly, I would have assumed that, if your hair is of a type that you need to brush it all the time, it probably wouldn't be worth growing out in the first place.

I've got ultra mega giga curly hair (which is an anomaly. No one on either side of my family does, and I was born with straight hair. One day my sister shaved it all off whilst practising her hairdressing skill and it grew back curly). Shampooing mega giga curly hair regularly is a death sentence for some reason, so I stick to conditioner. Can't blow-dry as that's a death sentence too. Combing or brushing when it's dry is a death sentence. Looking at curly hair when it's dry is a death sentence. I'm sure there is theoretically some way to grow really long curly hair with lots of haircare but at that point, one must imagine Sisyphus with curly hair.

...maybe if I shaved my head it would grow back straight and I wouldn't have permanent bedhead no matter how well washed and combed it is

Been wondering about three ubiquitous magic elements and Skyrim in particular. Just how cold that jet-from-a-hand needs to be to kill as quick as a fiery one?

At least liquid nitrogen temperature, possibly lower.  Considering they're probably freezing and directing the atmosphere, which is presumably pretty earth-like. Could be -200C or something.

No idea if that would be sufficient to kill just as quickly as fire. You'd have to consider the temperature of the flames too. Probably not super hot since they're depicted as red-orange, so probably wood burning temperature, probably 240C.

Now, does all the ambient heat drawn out of one sorcerors' ice spell go into the next sorcerors' fire spell? Are they comically linked in-universe?

This makes me wonder if the Beyond Skyrim team wrote any more books.
