  1. Somedays I feel like changing my research focus to Geometric Function Theory, with a specialization in boundary values of continuous functions.

     

    If you catch my drift.

      Try "Boundary Functions and Sets of Curvilinear Convergence for Continuous Functions."

      Oh, no.

  3. In isolation DeepL will translate メスガキ as "female brat."

     

    But in the context of longer phrases I've seen it translate it to "little bitch," "meth head," "meshuggah" and in one particularly bizarre instance "anonymous scholarship system for orphans whose parents have been killed in traffic accidents."

     

    Have yet to see it use Pixiv's gloss of "sassy loli" though.

      While investigating this topic I discovered that the "gaki" is apparently written as 餓鬼, i.e. starving demon.  This in turn relates to the "hungry ghosts" or pretas in the six realms of the Buddhist cosmology, which are reincarnations of those with too much gluttonous karma.  It's kind of bizarre that that's the default term for "brat" though I guess historically it developed to specifically refer to a spoiled brat, i.e. one who is so gluttonous as to become a preta in the next life.

  4. MFW I switch my avatar to a furry to try to derail a conversation into further complaints about furries while claiming to want to get it back on track but it doesn't work because I'm posting on a website where everyone is too familiar with my shenanigans.

      I knew it was a 2hoo just because of the hat, so I just thought it was just a regular avatar change.

    I've got a can of Dr. Pepper in one hand and my flip phone in the other.

    Chicken tendies warming in a microwave I got from a junkyard.

    I'm set to tuturu.

  8. Is it normal for there to be a guy handing out full crates of cookies for free when you leave the grocery store?

     

    And hypothetically speaking if I were to accept such a crate of free cookies, should I be worried about getting poisoned?

    1. Raison d'être

      No, and yes. But free cookies are worth it.

      I get free cookies all the time just visiting web sites so I dunno they're not so valuable they can't be given out for free. Just don't get a virus from them

  10. Isn't "early retirement" basically the same as "coming late to the NEET party"?

    1. Raison d'être

      Raison d'être

      Technically, yes. But I think NEET has acquired a meaning beyond its literal definition, and that excludes people who've worked for long enough to retire early. They are NEET skinwalkers.

  12. Is a dragon a reptile, or is it really a bird?

     

    Now hear me out: I'm not just saying that because they fly.  A dragon is basically a dinosaur, and dinosaurs are supposedly more closely related to birds, right?  So wouldn't that make a dragon a bird, technically?

      Weeaboo counter argument: Japanese word for Dinosaur is 恐竜 meaning "scary dragon."  Ergo dinosaurs are dragons and thus dragons are dinosaurs.

    3. Idiot Cube

      Idiot Cube

      I think we can conclude that Eastern dragons are dinosaurs (birds), while Western dragons are the result of pterosaurs interbreeding with serpents (reptiles).

       

      Let's just ignore the fact that Eastern dragons tend to look way more serpent-like than Western ones.

    4. Expresate

      Apparently modern definitions class birds as reptiles, so... moot point.

      You clearly haven't seen the Weegee Wiki if you think this is surprising. Besides, cringers in every game OST video on Youtube always comment about how the song is used in their imaginary game, and cringers on Deviantart make up their own cartoons or whatever all the time.
