Whatever this says can’t possibly be as interesting as it should

The funniest part of gamers who rag on “casual” games and claim “simple cell phone games” don’t “really count” as gaming is that those games are fucking hard but their high-res AAA titles hold your hand and autosave forever and effectively cannot be lost.

The new Magic set has a vampire (Kheru Bloodsucker) who looks very creepy. I think it's based on some actual South Asian vampire, but I'm not sure which one. Any ideas?

Oh dang, pretty

The teeth and tongue are straight off the demons and vampiric beings from several cultures, there’s no one specific thing like it, but the Balinese Leyak are the most infamous with that look.

Do you like the look of Murasaki Baby?

Yeah this seems adorable

Do you know of any really loud bugs other than cicadas? There's something outside my work window making a a loud constant buzzing, like an electric light that's messed up. It doesn't sound at all like the usual cicadas around here.

Some cicadas do sound just like that, but it could possibly also be some sort of katydid, or maybe a mole cricket!

You had a lot of questions for the psychic doors but unfortunately it has some problems

Hey what are your toughts on the ghosts from dreadout which is based on Indonesian folkore?

holy shit

I never know about these things until someone tells me, I am utterly blind to video gaming developments

yo bogleech! have you read/seen the book "All Tomorrows", by Nemo Ramjet? it's available online. most of the designs are your typical mutated humans fare, but a few of them are pretty charming

The author is a friend!

And yes, it’s one of my favorite books. I wouldn’t say most of the designs are typical at all; only the first chapter has very human-looking entities, and still already gives us giant stationary plant-like “humans,” with each subsequent chapter offering more and more extreme forms that still have an obvious hint of Homo sapiens even when they start looking like mollusks and fungi.

And then there’s that whole fantastic saga of the machine uprising, the rise and fall of all the different species over a billion years, the sadistic alien geneticists, it’s better than any of the speculative sci-fi to come out of Wayne Barlowe or Dougal Dixon, by far!

Bacteria from bees possible alternative to antibiotics
Raw honey has been used against infections for millennia, before honey — as we now know it — was manufactured and sold in stores. So what is the key to its’ antimicrobial properties? Researchers at Lund University in Sweden have identified a unique group of 13 lactic acid bacteria found in fresh honey, from the honey stomach of bees. The bacteria produce a myriad of active antimicrobial compounds.

These lactic acid bacteria have now been tested on severe human wound pathogens such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Pseudomonas aeruginosa and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE), among others. When the lactic acid bacteria were applied to the pathogens in the laboratory, it counteracted all of them.

There’s “DOGTV” now it’s a TV channel to alternately excite and relax dogs throughout the day and it’s like an endless fever dream about dogs doing things in places with haunting disembodied child voices sometimes just gently saying “hey” over and over interspersed with like footage of ducks or smoke or glowing lights flying around

I had this dream where they revealed MegaPorygon-Z and it turned into this retro video game spaceship thing that fires its head like a missile!
