which way to the MACHINES?


Y'all are way overthinking the Timbler. It's a shitpost from a twitter guy who makes funny photoshops of old video games.

This one is about the Shambler, from Quake, wearing Timberlands. Hence Timbler.

Quake got a remastered release last week by Night Dive Studio. Their in-house engine for porting old games to modern platform is called Kex.

The black guy is the protagonist from Shadow Man, which was a recent release ported to Kex engine. He just called it kek because before the world was brain poisoned that was a way to say lol and it's a reasonable pun on kex.

The twitter guy is named Kino Fabino and his content is wholesome for fans of boomer shooters and I will not have you cynical assholes ruin that for me.

yeah it's a bit like how internet racists ruined Matt furie's life by making his cartoons an emblem of antisemitism or whatever it was

basically, the internet is a terrible cesspool and it's probably pretty lucky I only ever really went on SA and we all grew out of the "ironic X" phase and largely the avoided brain worms

No, it came from WoW. They filtered language in the game's chat so that the two factions of the game couldn't directly communicate. "lol" became "kek". It was fine for years until 4chan shitheads did the same poo poo they did to Pepe.

i remember when most nerd things (rpg books, etc) were saturated with unnerving photomanipulated art. good times.

aesthetically everything about shadowman was pretty great and the reason it sticks with me today. the talking irish snake with a human skull wearing a "jaunty" tophat didn't hurt either

I have shadowman for the dreamcast and can confirm it was pretty fun. I loved the aesthetic and I felt the "dungeons" you had to go through were actually sort of a fresh take on the Zelda N64 dungeon diving.

Shadowman 2 was hot garbage tho :(

iirc that was the 'scientific' explanation for children born with downs syndrome in the early 20th century - that some recessive mongolian ancestry must be expressing itself, to make a child look and act that way

late 19th, but yup that is basically what dr down said in the paper where he described the syndrome

quote:

The great Mongolian family has numerous representatives, and it is to this division,
I wish, in this paper, to call special attention. A very large number of congenital
idiots are typical Mongols. So marked is this, that when placed side by side, it is
difficult to believe that the specimens compared are not children of the same parents.
The number of idiots who arrange themselves around the Mongolian type is so great,
and they present such a close resemblance to one another in mental power, that I
shall describe an idiot member of this racial division, selected from the large number
that have fallen under my observation.

The boy's aspect is such that it is difficult to realize he is the child of Europeans,
but so frequently are these characters presented, that there can be no doubt that
these ethnic features are the result of degeneration


Apart from the practical bearing of this attempt at an ethnic classification, considerable
philosophical interest attaches to it. The tendency in the present day is to
reject the opinion that the various races are merely varieties of the human family
having a common origin, and to insist that climatic, or other influences, are insufficient
to account for the different types of man. Here, however, we have examples of
retrogression, or at all events, of departure from one type and the assumption of the
characteristics of another. If these great racial divisions are fixed and definite, how
comes it that disease is able to break down the barrier, and to simulate so closely the
features of the members of another division. I cannot but think that the observations
which I have recorded, are indications that the differences in the races are not specific
but variable.

yes and it's not a specifically british phenomenon either, it wasn't too long ago that "mongool" was a v. common insult in dutch roughly equivalent to the r-word

people with down syndrome would also casually be referred to as "mongooltjes"
