I doubt that most of them are furries, 10-year-olds just tend to like Sonic and tend to like to draw things they like

At work, the machine that prints the price tags is failing to the point that the clothing category on the tag is illegible. My job is to sort these by category first, then size(except kids, which is size then category), it is a problem that the only thing printed where the category should be is a tiny dot or two.

I bring this to the attention of the supervisors, and they demand that I sort it anyway. Nevermind that my job is literally impossible now. Or the fact that the person pricing using that specific machine is also massively incompetent with a strong tendency to get the category wrong, which not only makes my job hard enough, but also screws with both stock records and price point. Or the fact that I'm not the only one who needs to be able to see the category on the ticket to be able to do their job as well.

Been getting into No Agenda, or trying to.

For a podcast marketed on not having a lean.. boy do they have a lean.
What is their lean?
They're heavily counter-culture...

So recently that's been very anti-vax, pro-climate change, and anti-anti-trump.
I love where they're coming from, I love how they're doing it, I hate what they're saying.

...Does "pro-climate change" mean they believe in climate change, or that they support it by not believing in it? ???

Anti-pro-climate change reduction measures and climate change media alarmism

Not as fun a soundbite

Showing age by assuming current 10 year olds have even heard of Sonic. Let's face it, most people drawing creepy Sonic fanart are probably 35+

Here's how I look at it.  The reason why furries are so much more prolific in terms of art than other internet subcultures*, is that the furry community is more tolerant of bad art.  Every adult drawing photorealistic pictures of fox-people having sex with each other, was once a kid drawing SANIC.  With non-furry artists they just kinda emerge into the internet fully formed and drawing good art, but that's because they're too nervous to post their shit art.

Also sonic is totally a gateway drug towards being a furry.

I think the fact that furries seem to throw tons and tons of commission money around helps too

Yeah, I dunno what it is about the community but furries always seem to have loadsa dosh to toss at good artists.

Although I will note that while they're generally high-quality (if pretty disturbing for non-furries like me) Furry art tends to be pretty samefacey.

Practically no exercise for 1.5 months.

I managed to jog at about 75% effort for ten whole minutes. Admittedly this is because I was trying to outrun a swarm of flies that had taken a bizarre amount of interest in me and had been chasing me for about half an hour before that. Which is the other WTF: Every time I go past any bushes or anything that's prime fly habitat, a swarm of the fuckers decides to chase after me relentlessly. Nobody else seems to have this issue, just me. I'll be surrounded by a fucking cloud of flies insistent on trying to land on my head or buzz in my ears.

Wouldn't mind it if I could actually control the fucks, but all they do is hang around my head and be annoying flying pricks.
