#1990152 Tell me something good that happened to you today.

Posted by Guppie on 13 August 2016 - 11:27 AM

My fiance talked to her mom, and she said we should set a date for our wedding! I'M SO EXCITED!

 

When we first got together it wasn't even legal for us to get married here, and then there were concerns about her religious family members, but now we're finally going to do it!

 

We're going to start the process on having our rings made soon, and I just can't express how happy this has made me.




#1979951 Introducing SLACK!

Posted by Guppie on 14 June 2016 - 06:09 AM

Since TC on mobile is shit, this will be a great alternative for when I'm not on my laptop!

TC is shit anywhere, in my experience. I couldn't even get it to load last night when Futurama was there in his new apartment. I was pretty disappointed, but unsurprised. I'm really hopeful that SLACK will serve better. I've never heard of it before, but just the fact that you have to actually join bodes well.




#1969473 Virginity

Posted by Guppie on 28 May 2016 - 06:12 PM

Sorry, guys. I was just thinking about girls in Africa being abandoned after being raped by soldiers because of the shame. One bad thought led to another, and I'm sorry about the rant topic.




#1969155 Virginity

Posted by Guppie on 28 May 2016 - 08:37 AM

WTF even is this shit? Not having sex should not be a valuable thing deserving of its own word.

 

Yeah, sex can be dangerous, what with STDs, emotions and potential pregnancies, but lots of things are dangerous!

 

ROCK CLIMBING IS LIKE SEX! Some people like it, some people don't, and you should use proper protection, but NOT doing it isn't something special.

 

By valuing virginity, you put people between a rock and a hard place, especially when you throw gender roles in the mix. Wow, thanks for the pressure to perform and the simultaneous slut shaming. It's not fair to guys either, though arguably less destructive.

 

It should be nobody else's business whether you've had sex (unless you're a kid, in which case it does matter because rape is bad).

 

For most women (especially if they use tampons or ride a bicycle), there won't even be any physiological difference before and after sex.

 

But I don't fully back that feminist line about the hymen myth, either. Different people's bodies are different, and for some, the hymen will come into play no matter how good the sex would have otherwise been. For instance, women who have a fibrous hymen. That shit's so tough you're going to have to have a doctor cut it with a laser if you want to have penetrative vaginal sex.

 

And even if the hymen (or whatever vaginal tissue that is "not a hymen because that doesn't exist") does tear, it doesn't have to feel bad. That can feel pretty great, actually.

 

Sex is fine, and so is not having sex, but societal pressure one way or the other (and especially both ways at once) is destructive and sucks.

 

Also, sex ed should be freely available to everyone and cover this kind of nonsense.




#1964091 How to Steal TNT's Vector Images

Posted by Guppie on 22 May 2016 - 08:25 AM

Things you will need:

  • Internet access
  • Inkscape
  • Program which has the “print to PDF” function. CutePDF Writer should work
  • Image editing software. I’m partial to Paint Tool Sai, but Krita, Gimp and even Paint.NET should work.
  • Computer that can handle the demands of editing vectors and large images (if you’re fine cheating, you’re probably fine on this front as well. I’ve only encountered problems with a laptop from the early 2000’s).

Except for Sai, the suggested programs are free.

 

1. Non-clothing items (e.g. foreground items) usually work much better, so go to DTI and use whatever key word strikes your fancy and follow it with this string of tags:

-zone:necklace -zone:collar -zone:glasses -zone:backpack -zone:hat -zone:markings -zone:wings -zone:jacket -zone:shirt/dress -zone:trousers -zone:"left hand item" -zone:gloves -zone:"right hand item"

Spoiler

 

Great! Now click whichever image looks like it might have some cool parts to use. Keep in mind that animated images can be a bit obnoxious to use.

 

2. Don’t bother changing which neopet is there. It really won’t matter, since we won’t be using that SWF. Just click the “Customize more” button.

Spoiler

 

3. Click the “SWF Links” button. Don’t worry if it looks a little weird, especially around the edges.

Spoiler

 

4. Click the SWF of the item you searched for (unless you’re really interested in using half a Bori face).

Spoiler

 

5. PRINT! Note: if you chose an animated SWF, wait until the frame with the image components you’re interested in are visible, and then right click and select print.

Spoiler

 

6. Choose whatever PDF program you’ve got.

Spoiler

 

7. Wait for the PDF to be created, name it something identifiable and then close the PDF if it automatically opened. You can close your DTI tabs now, or go back for more source material.

 

8. Open Inkscape and open your PDF. It’s going to look BAD. Don’t worry. The component objects of the image are all intact, they’re just in a weird order and unfiltered.

 

9. Click and drag your cursor from just above the top left corner to just below the bottom right corner (or vice versa if you’re a leftie). This selects whatever’s in the area. A lot of images will have a single large clipping mask over them and many others beneath that. Most images will also be “grouped”. Fix this by going into the Objects menu and choosing “ungroup”.

Spoiler

 

10. Click and drag to select everything again. Now choose Object > Clip > Release. You may also need to choose Object > Mask > Release.

Spoiler

These steps may make a big black or white rectangle appear. Don’t worry. That’s just a clipping layer, so you can click on it and delete it. If you accidentally delete an important object, just use ctrl + z to undo.

 

11. Click on the interesting part of the image that you want to use. Use ctrl + x to cut it out of the image. It’s likely that some extra stuff may be part of what you cut, but that’s okay, we can get rid of it in the next steps. If WAY too much got cut, then use ctrl + z and then repeat your ungroup and release steps until you can cut a more specific portion of the image. Just delete things that are in your way.

Spoiler

 

12 Use ctrl + v to paste your selection in the new Inkscape window. If you don’t want any other parts of the PDF, you can close that window without saving it. If you magically managed to only get exactly what you wanted, congrats, you can skip to step 15!

Spoiler

Spoiler

For the rest of us, it’s time to repeat the ungroup and release steps and delete the extraneous stuff. Just click on an object and use the delete button on your keyboard. It’s time consuming, but you can click and drag to select multiple objects to delete at once. You can use F3 + 4 to zoom to the “drawing” (the entire collection of all objects in the window). If you zoom, make sure you use F1 or click on the tool which looks like a cursor to go back to your selection tool.

Spoiler

 

15. When you have gotten rid of the stuff you’re not interested in using, you can use shift + ctrl + e to open the “Export PNG Image” display at the side. You can click and drag to select a portion and use the Selection tab of the “Export PNG Image” display, but I find it easier to use the Drawing tab instead of the Selection tab.

Spoiler

 

If you plan to print your image, you will want to increase the DPI to 350. If you don’t think you’ll ever print the image, then it really doesn’t matter. To resize your image, click and drag to select and then use ctrl and drag one of the corners of the selection.

 

 

16. Click “Export As…” and choose a name and location for your PNG.

Spoiler

 

17. This is your last chance to delete any weird little pieces you don’t want! When you’re ready, “CLICK THE EXPORT” BUTTON! If you don’t click the Export button, your PNG will not be saved!

Spoiler

 

18. If you think you may want to use a different selection or a larger size, save your file as an Inkscape SVG.

 

Now you can use your PNG in your favorite image editing software to make super cool stuff to support Team Codex!

lol Every four months or so I'll have a cup of rumchata, so I put 0 for my average weekly intake and that was the end of that.

 

By the way, since this is an internet survey, it might be relevant to consider whether alcohol is legal at the age of first consumption where the person was at the time. Too late to add that to the survey, but you might take it into account when looking at your data.

That cheating is a lot more prevalent and less malevolent than I thought
