bit melodramatic


Well they said there were other issues that myopia can cause. But yes, restricting homework to combat this is interesting and not something I expected. I thought it would be a matter of 'you'll have glasses, so what, get back to study'.


glasses are just a part of the way my life is. That he calls it a serious condition is funny, like someone saying that a person who is 20lb over the average weight is going to die of a heart attack


Same for me, but I have astigmatism not myopia.

I did not check how serious the conditions are that he mentions and what the chances are of getting them, maybe it is quite an issue, maybe not. I know cataracts can be quite bad if it's not treated but we do have the ability to treat it now.


These render compilation videos are pretty nice. Shame there are not many of them but I guess it takes a lot of work.


Beeenie Babies were so pokemon


cool tactics


very well structured video essay. Held my full attention for 15m





I'm six hours into this after a watching it for a couple hours each day. I have no interest in the "guy talks about a game for 8 hours" genre, but this guy is listing and describing almost every (excludes some limited time Japanese-only mobile games) Bomberman media so it's kind of interesting since I played some Bomberman games over the years and knew that I was missing a lot of stuff that never left Japan. The Bomberman Jetters anime seems pretty nice, I'll have to download it later.
It's also giving me the urge to play that one free online fan game we played on kissu a couple years ago...


That was a great video, but I had to cringe when he said he was desperately obsessed with Undertale as a kid. Dude has to be like, 20 at most. I imagine most childhood Undertale fans are teenagers right now. It really wasn't that long ago.

Nonetheless, I liked it. At times I thought the commentary was a bit too neurotic and romanticized, but it was interesting.


that author's out some good work this year

2015, the good old days of early internet.


Yeah, when I think of anything "good old days" the latest I think of is 2001.


I was a childhood undertale fan and I'm 24. Maybe that's pushing it, because I was 16 when it came out, but still. 2015 was longer ago than you'd think.


Is there no peak to realistic graphics!


thought this was a joke at first using real life footage to look like a game


love cool weapons channels


Not sure if anyone linked this guy recently, but I started watching him again. He does old American/British food stuff and this one is on mushroom ketchup again. I wonder what it's like...

Death to reactor content!


Incredibly good channel in general, proper historian stuff for the Roman Empire, Japan, and lesser known civilizations.


A short news story about fancy military funerals for 14 recently discovered bodily remains from the American revolutionary war. Might not be interesting itself (although I think it is), but the 14th man was British and they flew soldiers over to do their own military rituals and they will eventually all be buried together.
I think that era was the peak of solider uniforms


Its a nice enough gesture, I'm glad it was done like this rather than put in a museum


I think he should have been buried in a British military cemetery, burying him alongside Americans is kind of insulting considering that he died fighting against them.


Tell the British military. Graves these old are moved often


I was thinking that at first, too, but I imagine the majority of British and other foreign soldiers that died here back then never had their bodies repatriated across the ocean. This is something I'm completely ignorant of, but my assumption is that the repatriation of bodies is a very recent phenomenon, at least for the common man.
When I think of what would be the "moral" decision here, I think it would be for him to be buried here in the US alongside his compatriots. I'm not sure if there's such a thing as a US cemetery for British war dead of the revolutionary war, but I assume he's rejoining his compatriots in some way.


You are right in the dead were rarely repatriated, usually soldiers would be buried bear the battlefield(like in this case) or they might set up a military cemetery, like how there are Soviet Military cemeteries located in Germany and vice versa. I am not sure what the practice was at the time but you would think there would be cemeteries for British people somewhere in the US.


Cool little documentary piece about a key animator who created a lot of the mainstream anime opening style.




A rather interesting video on a historical staple food for people such as sailors or soldiers for a long time


Gotta love lithium ion battery fires


Speaking of creaky voice, there's this video from the other day that briefly visualizes it as it occurs in Danish, before moving on to [ð̠˕ˠ] (which is not actually a [ð]).


Nice Youtube animation


reminds me of that one fighting game character with awesome face, a top hat, and a cane


like videos like these


Nice video


fate of the west



??? What is the fate of the west? Making comics?

I'm not interested in comics but I have seen videos like that about them on Youtube. I think the difference between the industries of comics and Manga and the follow on effects that has are interesting.

The Manga industry is fairly similar to the industry of writing and publishing books. An Artist has an idea and if a publisher likes it they will publish it.

But the comic industry is a lot different to that. It's generally a publisher deciding on the project and hiring artists to then work on it and they don't treat IPs as a series of works by an author but as a brand.
So what ends up happening is you get these huge well known Characters that have been around for decades that have had a myriad of different people working on them over time, creating different versions of the character and different stories with them that often are not in continuity with the other versions. It's like if the publisher of Lord of the Rings decided to make a new book set after the Lord of the rings with no input from Tolkein, kept going with that for decades under several new authors, ret-conning everything Tolkien wrote into oblivion and then deciding one day to reset the Lord of the rings series and now Tolkien's Middle earth is no longer the current cannon one.
It's absurd, Tolkien's world is Tolkien's world. Just like Hunter X Hunter is the property of Togashi Yoshihiro, sure, the nature of that does mean we are probably never going to see it finished but people accept that and I don't think anybody would want somebody else coming in and taking it from him. Yet that's just the norm for comics.

It even occurs in this smaller indie comic in this video, there are numerous versions made and he says they follow different stories and are not connected to each other with numerous different artists having worked on different editions and even the original creators don't seem to care about sticking to one cannon story and world.

This all seems to cause multiple problems. Firstly, the west doesn't care about anybodies property and is more than happy to do what they want with it such as what happened to the LOTR Amazon series and games.
But secondly, because of the way the industry is set up there doesn't seem to be much room for new material, everything revolves around established brands and there isn't the same mechanism for authors to create their own stories.
However because of the way it works in Japan we get a huge amount of different stories by people with their own ideas who can be given a place to published it and be given the freedom to own the world they create. This follows through to the anime industry as of course most anime is just animated manga. The West could never create an animation industry to compete because it lacks the industry to create the source material to begin with.

For what it's worth, most of the money in American comics has traditionally been in comic strips, published in newspapers and magazines and then compiled into books later. The heavily episodic format encourages simpler, more accessible stories, and it's low-risk enough from a publisher's perspective that they're much more willing to try something new.


Or kuso 1 panel political/current event cartoons that still havent died off yet


I include those among comic strips, because they are/were usually printed along-side them.

It's worth noting that webcomics are an extension of traditional print comic strips, so a lot of the latter's cliches are kept undead thanks to the internet and social media.

Is that true? It seems that there would not be much money in those strips. I looked Garfield up on Wikipedia and it did not say much about profits, just that it sold from $750 Million to $1 Billion in Merchandise in 2004. Which is a lot but it also says it's the most syndicated comic strip ever, others probably are not as successful.

But also it says
>While retaining creative control and being the only signer, Davis now only writes and usually does the rough sketches. Since the late 1990s most of the work has been done by long-time assistants Brett Koth and Gary Barker. Inking and coloring work is done by other artists, while Davis spends most of the time supervising production and merchandising the characters

So it's still different than the standard comic book industry as he is still the one managing it even after 44 years.





I've mentioned it before, but it's really weird to think of there being live stormchasing on youtube. There's a tornado outbreak in the Southeast US and you can see people covering it live. I didn't do any research so I don't know what channel is good, but here's an example. Normally you need to actually live around such storms to see this kind of thing live on local stations, so people outside of it might find it interesting.
