This is a very fun channel and an interesting way to tell people about biology and stuff, but it annoys me that the basic concept is that some animals can be considered 'Better' than others since that's certainly not how it works in nature or how biologists think about it. I hope it doesn't mislead some people watching, ie he has video on cats where Lions are 'Higher tier' than Cougars, which is a bit suspect most ways you slice it since Cougars are certainly in a better position right now than Lions are.

Yeah, but that's because of Human players ruining the game for other players. The meta is all hosed up because of them.

My uncle was one of like, twenty people that had John Larkin's original album (the L.A. club circuit was probably way, way smaller in the 70s and 80s) so I'm glad people will finally know that Scatman John was a loving monster on both piano and pianee.

She's super insightful and funny to boot. You should check out her books, too: Smoke Gets in Your Eyes (about being a mortician) and From Here to Eternity: Traveling the World to Find the Good Death (about death and burial practices in cultures around the world). Saw her do a talk last year while promoting her second book and it was excellent.

yeah. its right up my alley. i have always been weirdly tempted to go into being a mortician. it seems like a fascinating field of work.

I really should have come up with something better before spending five bucks on this.



Ah man, that game hooked me good. I had rented the game and fell so hard I played it for a weekend, barely stopping to sleep. I didn't finish it, so I overwrote all three save files with mine so when I returned it hopefully one would be there when I rented it the next weekend. Thankfully they were still there and I finished it pretty quickly after that.

Finished the entire thing, including the matrix side quest; if you did all the side stuff the ending was a romp and kinda anticlimactic but still a great game. In the days before internet faqs it was the mark of a good game where you could pretty much wring everything from a game even with a missing manual as well. I'll avoid playing it in modern time to keep my nostalgia intact, however.

Does anyone know if the Jeff the Killer sequel Jenny Nicholson teased is still available on Amazon? I know it was up there two or three weeks ago, but I'm not able to find it anymore. I hope that her video or people who watched it didn't make the writer feeling personally attacked and taking it off of the site.

Much like Slenderman, it attained memetic status and then got folded into the weird "all the creepypasta characters live together in a house in the woods and have a sitcom life and fall in love with various self-inserts" fanfic genre. I think Zalgo is Slenderman's enemy for... some reason, and has some set of minions, but hell if I'm going to go wading back into that mess to figure it all out.

I don't want to say "no, that's stupid" in case it's true, but I do want to point out that that sounds exactly like the premise of a creepypasta.

Edit: did some research, found an interview with the guy who made the photo in the first place, it's just a bad costume with worse photoshopping. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhPpcvD01Ok

Having seen some pictures of hanging victims, I don't think the picture looks like a hanged person.

I'd also wonder who took the picture of the hanged girl and put it on the internet. Like, I can't imagine most bullies would be terrible enough to break into her home and get a picture of her and upload it, and I can't imagine why else anyone would put the image in an easily accessible place.

Er, the girl posted a picture of herself. She was then bullied, and hung herself. Taking the image that was posted before she hung herself, the person photoshopped it to make the original Jeff the Killer image.

"Picture of the girl who hanged herself" doesn't mean picture of the girl actually hanging herself, it just means that it was the picture of a girl who later hanged herself because of bullying from 4chan
