I googled that and it lead to this
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
which is the most tactical thing I've seen in my life.

That is definitely a... Special firearm.

I kinda don't think the guy knew enough about guns to have heard of flechettes. I kinda think he'd heard people were using  smaller rounds, sniper scopes made guns easier to aim, and that machine pistols were scary, and took this to the logical extreme.

Humans have the innate magical power of walking on two legs, but it can take several years to master it. However, as the legs are an external organ, it's obvious what could be done with them. If they were internal organs, such as the aforementioned dragon 'ice lung', and nobody knew they were there, or had ever used them accidentally, or ever autopsied another human, it could possibly lead to the ability never being learned. It is extremely unlikely and implausible in real life, but plausible in fantasy. Of course, considering breathing is a reflex and not a learned ability, it makes no sense.

Did anyone ever forget how to breathe?

Yeah, so, a couple I hang out with is having problems. Married 4 months or so, and now he's saying he might want to leave..... This is after partner quit job on promise of support..... Nevermind the emotional cluster ... that gets into.  It's just a massive issue.

He can't seem to deal with partner's panic attacks and anxiety is the big overarching issue. This is a fixable issue for them both. So sad if that derails it so soon.

I have no idea but you could probably have youtube take his video down because dmca without too much trouble. It's on youtube, right? Am I being dumb?

No, I wouldn't and shouldn't do that. It's not even my music.

Had a very strange experience on the train to the goat farm two days ago. Large tall dude of maybe about 20 was on the phone with his mother, shouting very loudly about something about his dad, and stomping and kicking the handrails. It was difficult to understand what exactly he was saying since Europeans have strange accents in their Portuguese. I assume it was about cod tendies and an austerity-caused crunch in the supply of good boy points.

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

You could forget TO breathe, but presuming your brain is not damaged, at worst you'd faint and automatically go back to autopilot, *how* to, not really.

With legs, it's slightly different - the issue is not so much a PARTS, WAT DO? as developing Required Secondary Powers like muscle strength and a fine-tuned sense of balance in order not to faceplant into the ground.

... if it's not your music then why are you upset? Admittedly I don't do music, so I could be missing something.

On the "ice lung" discussion, nobody's ever learned to use their appendix, have they? :P

I dunno, I feel like having an ice breath would be known instictually.  Like how bats just know they have echolocation, or some lizards can shoot blood out of their eyes or something.

They made a "remix" by taking my transcription of the sheet music and swapping out the soundfont. That's a two-minute operation. It seems disingenuous.
