Thanks for the link! I just watched it, and don't think it was too bad at all really. Regardless of who they're interviewing, Eammon and Ruth are particularly good at asking reasonable and open questions, which is why I'm kinda ashamed to say I enjoy watching This Morning... but yeah, I don't think that segment was too bad really! They read some of the Twitter responses at the end, and at least they were positive.

So apparently the movie Fried Green Tomatoes featured a real, restored steam engine running under own power -- Atlanta & West Point #290, built in 1926.

Unfortunately #290 hasn't run under own power since 1992, and isn't expected to be fully restored until 2020 at the earliest.

How do you clean blood stains from clothes? I don't want to type that in search engines.

 

Right... you can try hydrogen peroxide, or if that messes with the color try rubbing ammonia on it before washing. You might have to treat it a couple of times before anything happens.

I'll keep the bloodstains on until I can get those I guess. Thanks.

*misanthropy intensifies*

So I'm guessing you're either moderate or an atheist? If so, good luck out there.

Well, last weekend I went to an anime con locals are comparing to Dash-con. It is a con that's been going on for nearly a decade, but had a change of management some time ago and perhaps they don't know what they're doing.

The first indication something was up was that the con felt empty, not only on Friday but even Saturday. Normally the con had 250-500 people. I heard an estimate of about 100 people showed up.  The second indication that something was wrong was the angry crowd of people at registration. After hovering around them I found out they were vendors that wanted refunds, because they were charged $300 to get in and promised 500-1000 people would show up, and less than 100 were there and they were not able to break even, or even turn a proft. I don't know if they got refunds but it sounded like they were able to get something back.

Also, rumor has it that most of the staff quit on Friday, leaving a few staff members and volunteers, and some of the maids in the maid cafe (who were a different group) were doing panels.

So, why did this con fail so hard? First off, it had moved from its old small hotel to a larger hotel, which happened to be the same hotel that booted out a popular convention earlier this year. The guy at registration told me he wanted to move to a bigger hotel to encourage more people to show up but might have jumped the gun or chosen too big of a hotel, not to mention local resentment of said hotel which probably caused a lot of people to boycott that hotel. The con organizers should not have told the vendors that 1000 people would show up when previous cons were 500 at most, and not charged $300 a booth. Second thing that happened was there was another anime event in the area which siphoned a lot of people away. Both events have been blaming each other on social media for being the same weekend, but I think neither knew of the other's existence and the con's always been the first week of Aug. I know for a fact the con staff went to the other event to lure people to the con with half-off or bogo badges, which is a big no-no.

In any case, I enjoyed myself and there were quite a few panels that went off without a hitch. Bought some stuff in the dealer's stuff to help out the dealers. Rave was enjoyable. Both voice actor GOHs showed up and tried their best. Plus, people complaining about the con being $40 for a weekend, which I've been at sci-fi cons that had 100-200 people and paid $50+ for the weekend when there were ONLY 3 day badges. I hope the con can go back to being fun again like it's been in the past but I think it took too great of a hit with its reputation locally. I am sad about this.

I know there are moderate muslims out there and I wonder why more radical forms are taking control. I don't entirely think it's religion but rather populism and authoritarianism which have both become popular lately. "We're gonna strengthen our government stranglehold and crouch it in religious terms." If you look at even non-Muslim countries like Poland, Philippines, and the like, strong-fisted government seems to be popular nowadays, and fuck freedom.

So what's the deal with Telegram? Is it like Whatsapp, iMessage etc. but the app of choice for most furs? Is there a Phoenixed Telegram group chat?

I'd compare it to Discord/Skype more than anything else, but pretty much. There's nothing furry about it, but for some mysterious reason the only users I know are furries

I'd guess it's because it has custom stickers and the FA-going types enjoy commissioning sticker images of their OCs and stuff

The only people I know using it are furries, too. I've never made one though, considering the only 'other' furs I actually interact with are you guys

A little breathing, closing your eyes to gather your scattered thoughts, and opportunities pass you by. Care means nothing to the world. It makes no room for life's anxieties.

Such a problem you say it twice! 
There's just too many coffee cups in my house.
Like, a shit ton that no one ever uses in this cabinet.
I want to get rid of some of them.
Y'know, the ones that have been sitting back there for years. Generic, boring coffee cups. Because when I put dishes away I can't put all the coffee cups that get used away.

It's like discord, but with stickers and pictures of people's dicks.

You think I'm exaggerating, too. Over half the furry chats I've been in on Telegram has just been a bunch of horny guys posting gay porn and comparing dick size. I ended up purging the worst offenders pretty quickly. With fire and nuclear bombardment.

I think I hit holy grain of furry chats then in which we share porn, talk music (most of the people in the group are surprisingly knowledgeable), occasionally talk politics, and just banter and have a good time. No dick pics or anything. No RL pictures at all in this chat.

Any medically-inclined friends on here know what can be attributed to fatigue?

My work always leaves me feeling drained as it is quite physical, but I'd feel fatigued after going into uni for a single lecture and being sat at a desk all day. My diet has gotten poor lately, which could be the cause, but I don't know for sure.

I will kill every god damned housefly in this house.
I will slaughter them.
If I can't find them, I will buy traps.

I will go out of my way to find the most inhumane ways to kill these flies.

Fuck you, flies. Your hours are numbered.
