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?
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.

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.

... 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.

Things that made me WTF today: Footjob is apparently now on a goat farm in Portugal.

Yep. Winter vacation gig.

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

I was watching GDQ because some runner I follow was running R&C:UYA, but I hadn't looked at his stream in a while.

When he got to a specific part he announced one of the hardest tricks in the game, and did fucking skrunchless.

last time i was in his stream skrunchless was basically an in-joke, a trick that saved like fifteen seconds (the WR is 33:01 right now, to give some context) and was considered to be an inconsistent gimmick forever. i did a double take.

The appendix does actually serve a purpose, namely inoculating you as a small baby with various helpful bacteria. It's just kinda superfluous after age 0.75.

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.
Low caliber caseless high velocity ammo. That's the only idea i have that could make it work.
Low mass projectiles would mean less kick so the bullets can get some extra propellant to compensate.
Altho i'm not sure if a gun like that could really snipe because it would need an extended barrel.

Calculated, found that it'd only be slightly more to purchase (and by purchase I mean "rent used copies") textbooks for this semester from my campus bookstore. The catch? This notice when you checkout:

Quote
You are viewing an estimated total based on the textbook options you selected. If a Used book is not available, we will substitute it for a New book and your final total will be higher than the current estimate. If you are unhappy with the substitution, we will gladly process a refund or exchange.

Seriously? So you could potentially give me a surprise charge of probably double what I expect to pay, then leave me without books and make me go through a whole refund process? Why the heck do you think that you don't need an option to turn this "feature" off? :/

I'll just order online, even if they come a few days late I'm not dealing with the campus bookstore >_>

God I love attending a tiny community college. Small classes, nice bookstore people, and they make cheap aftermarket versions of the cripplingly expensive textbooks.

My bookstore has listed stuff as "required" that my profs never even heard of a few times.  I always check Amazon for textbooks if I can, just copy the ISBN number into the search bar.  You can even rent from Amazon now.
