You can get a nice sense of community engagement with a smaller channel, because you can actually hold some short conversations with the streamer and the other people about aspects of the game as they're playing it. 1000+ viewer streams are just.. I don't know what the appeal is.

Lots of posting about this... April Coup? Thing?

PookBear posted:

Citing lowtax's often absenteeism from the forums, some moderators of these forums, including mcnally, attempted to legally take control of the physical server these forums are hosted in. A loyalist admin was able at to thwart the attempted coup banning the perpetrators however this currently leaves this subforum without a moderator. Due to this power vacuum and civil unrest in the current events thread and cop thread Godholio, Mare, and myself have seized power and will govern as a triumvirate until free and democratic elections can be established.

We should be getting mod powers tomorrow morning but in the meantime we have no actual authority here and thus we must ask everyone not to poo poo up the forums.

And no, we are not joking https://forums.somethingawful.com/b...p?userid=124121 more details will be revealed in the following days.

update: Mcnally and the others were trying to help lady ambien get control over the servers citing lowtax's mental health in court. Lowtax is on the verge of just deleting everything. If you aren't in the gip discord you might want to join because there is a non zero chance these servers might not exist in a week.

It's time for Corvidae, my favourite bird family!

Of the corvids, crows are probably my favourite. They're smart, they're everywhere, there's a family of them who like to hang out in the tree outside my house and scream at passing raptors. But crows also get all the press (along with ravens, aka "it's like a crow but 30% bigger and gloomier"), so instead I'm going to talk about one of the prettiest corvids: the blue jay! They're ubiquitous where I live and I usually see a few in my backyard every day.



In the summer they're pretty sleek



In the winter they get reaaaaaaal poofy, unless they migrate south -- fun fact, some blue jays migrate south and some don't! It doesn't seem to be regional, though, in any given area some will migrate and some will just stay there year-round.



They're omnivores, but they especially love peanuts. If you set up a peanut feeder and keep refilling it they will figure out not just where you live, but where in the building you tend to be at any given time of day, and, when it runs out, fly to that window to scream at you.



They also do whatever this is. Probably an argument over a peanut, or possibly an air traffic control failure.



Blue jays are great. Probably my favorite corvids that I see on a regular basis. But they never come to say hello!

ToxicFrog posted:

Feed them for a while.

If they still won't say hello, stop feeding them and they'll come say hello very loudly until you start again.

I don't want to bribe them to be my friend, I want that friendship to come from mutual interests in making silly noises.

I raised a blue jay from a baby once.
They are smart as gently caress. His cage was in my room and he would wake up before me, somehow open up his cage and then grab an empty food packet. He would then fly over to my bed and peck my toes with is beak and when i would stir he would shake the food packet at me and squawk to let me know it was food time.
I let him have free reign of my room, and he would sit on my wrist as I typed and would peck keys too.
He was climatized to the wild and released according to wildlife management.

Once I rehabbed a raven with a broken wing. I was in the fith grade and had just started reading Poe, So of course its name was Lenore. It was released back into the wild when the wing was healed.

I was pleasantly surprised to see Alta Mar, a Spanish drama available on Netflix, swim against this by having a love triangle plot where this nice guy is wooing this girl, but she's not interested, instead going for his richer, womanizing boss, and after he does something stupid about it and gets berated for it, the two of them develop an enduring friendship where they're very supportive of each other, and it's not pictured as inferior to a romantic relationship.

There's also the Happily Ever After lie. I've been married to the girl of my dreams for almost 20 years. She's my best friend. She's my life partner. She's the best thing that ever happened to me. But our relationship still requires work every day. We still argue and fight occasionally. We still make mistakes with each other. But we're lucky to be in a healthy relationship where we're both willing to admit we're wrong and make changes for the better. And it will be this way forever. There is no such thing as Happily Ever After and I think that Disney and every other media outlet like them has done severe harm to the world through selling that lie. Probably not as much harm and popularizing and normalizing choking during sex but it's loving crazy how many people still buy into that lovely farce that once two fall in love that's it, no more effort required. Everything will always be this way. Ugh.
