Hey, do you guys remember that Line Rider internet toy that was big a few years back? The one where you made a track for the little sled guy to ride?

Apparently, he had a name.

That kinda fits it, actually.

lol tvtropes

actually where's FD real quick that place has been full of silly shit for a while
I'm a bit late and strapped for time so just take this: TVTropes is full of shit and you shouldn't support it or their userbase in their shady legal BS, censorship, or attacks on the servers hosting ATT.
Honestly I'm just waiting for ATT to have non-awful layout.
'tis a fair cop.

So, I was reading some old sci-fi. The author apparently believed that, in the far-fetched distopian future of 1985, our standard military weapons would be "4mm Machine Pistols with Sniper Scopes". I, uh... What? The mental images.

I read some Olaf Stapledon a few years ago. I think it was Star Maker where the stars went from red giants to yellow dwarves (by shrinking as their mass was consumed!) and so on. It was from the 30s, though, so I assume he had an excuse.

Well... I can't say I'd expect them to be accurate enough to warrant any kind of scope or magnification. But hey. They shoot fast, right? :v

For a long time people were expecting flechette guns to become real. The army spent hundreds of millions over decades trying before saying "Screw it, not worth it".


Even if you could fit a hundred rounds of lethal ammunition into a single clip.  Small caliber is really nice if you can make it work for your purpose.

I googled that and it lead to this

Maybe he was expecting the guns to be recoil-less! I know recoilless rifles are a thing! If I google it I get results!

Ok something sort of bugged me about a dragon movie I seen

In it they reveal that secretly all dragons have a second lung a "Ice Lung" that lets them breathe ice.

and I just kept thinking to myself "Why the world would dragons have a biological process they can't use unless specifically taught?"

Sure Humans have quite a few things they can't do unless taught, but they aren't major biological functions. We don't have wings on our back secretly.

... you're applying logic to the biological traits of fire-breathing dragons. I think you need to take a step back and reconsider some things.

Well it would be one thing if it was magic like a LOT of dragon fire is...

But it isn't magic, it is a biological function.

It's magic, they just decided to add some scientific-sounding hoohah to it to try to make it seem more plausible and missed the mark hilariously.

There are, in fact, certain biological things that humans can do that can be taught, though; meditation and hypnosis are the obvious ones. Both of those are real things that have real effects, and one can learn to utilize them. That's more taking advantage of quirks of the brain rather than some weird goddamn organ that does nothing unless you learn to use it, though.

EDIT: seriously is it petty to go after a guy for using my MIDI and calling it a remix, it didn't happen again recently but i seriously have 0 idea on the opinions of this, i only know of two people who have ever complained about this problem and one of those people is me
