Problems with the Bird-Like Dinosaurs
The bird-like dinosaurs are among my favorite dinosaurs; not necessarily because they are so bird-like, but because of the kerfuffle they cause among people, especially among the paleontologic minded. Of course, I tend to look at a lot of these creatures and see their modern depictions and ask questions. It's good to ask questions, as it can help open the eyes to things taken for granted or otherwise widely accepted because no one else thought of anything better before. And I do this a lot with the bird-like dinosaurs, especially given their adaptations and the wide appearance of feathers on dinosaurs despite a lack of fossil evidence to suggest it.
Probably the best example for this would have to be Therizinosaurus, one of the weirdest and most spectacular of the dinosaurs, let alone the bird-like ones. Confirmed so far to have been descended from the same group of dinosaurs t
Religion, Theism, Atheism, Burden of ProofOver the last few years, I've noticed a large degree of ignorance on the part of Atheist commenters on Youtube and various other Internet websites, concerning relatively simple terms which, if they would take the time to do their research, they would not have nearly the trouble distinguishing one term from the others. This is for all the childish, arrogant people out there who think they know everything there is to know about Religion, Theism, Atheism, and the Burden of Proof... which in my experience are mostly teenagers who just became Atheists within the last few months and think they're uber-smart when in reality they are an embarrassment to thinking people everywhere.Religion, Theism, Atheism, Burden of Proof21 hours ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
This is also for the people who get annoyed, repeatedly, with the absolute and utter stupidity of atheists who don't recognize the simple fact that Religion and Theism are NOT THE SAME THING, or who naively claim that atheists cannot be religious... the latter claim usually being based upon the ignorant assumpt
Hetalia Controversy"A number of online Korean protestors are calling for the cancellation of the upcomingHetalia - Axis Powers animeseries, although the anime's Japanese television channel insists that the anime does not have the controversial Korean character from the original manga. The "cynical gag" story takes the stereotypicalcharacteristics of about 20 countries and regions, and anthropomorphizes them as (mostly) bishōnencharacters. The protestors say that part of the story, which re-imagines various historical eras but focuses mainly on the World Wars, is insulting to Koreans. As of Monday, one portal site has collected 10,000 names in protest.KIDS STATION, a cable television channel aimed at children, issued the following statement: "[KIDS STATION] was unaware of the criticism in Korea. However, a Korean character does not appear in the anime version." The series of five-minute weekly anime shorts is slated to premiere on the channel on January 25."Hetalia Controversy23 hours ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Negative Chaos Remastered
Razor runs towards Seismic and kneels on the ground beside Seismic, and sees that he's okay, just unconscious. Ace walks towards Seismic. "Is he okay?" Razor nods and tries to lift Seismic by his shoulders. "Grab him by his feet so we can get him out of here." Ace lifts Seismic's feet and the two run off, to keep him out of harms way.
"Hey! Where do you two think you're going?!" Yami yelled as his mech starts running towards them. He stops as the fox blocks his path. "Out of the way you pest!" Yami says as he shoots the ball and chain towards the female fox.
The female fox jumps to the side and pulls out a sword. She jumps in the air and the sword becomes encased in ice and she slices the chain off the steel ball.
Yami's eyes widened, now nervous, retracts the chain back in the rod. "Ugh! You runt! Look at what you done to my machine!" Yami then runs towards the fox and hurls the rod, aimed at her.
She jumps back, and as the metal
Nicholaides Update- Schedule 4Okay, I'm starting to slack off a wee too much - but when you hear why, maybe you'll see it's not such a bad thing.Nicholaides Update- Schedule 42 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
In section four, studying memory drawing and other quick drawing methods, Nicholaides introduces five new exercises. They are as follows: 1) drawing from memory, 2) moving pose, 3) descriptive pose, 4) reverse pose, and 5) group pose.
Well, frankly, in terms of speed, he's preaching to the choir. Been there done that. Did it to the extreme. Remember when I was burning them out at posemaniacs in ten seconds, no sweat? But of course there is more to it than speed. So, here we go.
The memory pose is just what is sounds like. Look at the model for a moment, turn away, then draw it from memory. This is what we do - or should do - every time we start a class. That is, take the time to study the pose. Analyze it. In that time we translate perception to conception and go from observing to formulating, so tha
Anti-virilRecientemente he visto en un blog ( no voy a dar nombres) que a los hombres de la sociedad occidental se están ablandado, que ya no son viriles que no son más que unos sensibleros mimados y gordos.

Estado Islámico: No es nisiquiera una nación sino un contubernio de zelotes que matan inocentes, decapitan reporteros y obligan a las mujeres a estar tapadas con mortajas negras. Extremistas que

Had several dreams, but I don't remember them too well.
I know there was one where I was Supernum. The only two parts I remember are one time when I pointed the Numnum Sword at someone to get them to back off, and another time when Supernum and someone else were fighting a horde of thugs in a place that I think was the yard at Michael Bozo's house. It was set up kind of like a video game, and Supernum was WAY overpowered compared to the other guy. The other guy was just punching and such, while Supernum was able to shoot Num Beams from his fingers--either just one by pointing directly at one of the thugs, a line of them by sticking his hand out and moving it from one side to another, or a Gatling-gun style barrage of them by putting his fingers into a circle type formation and shooting beams rapidly from each one in a row. The other guy actually complained at one point, saying that these guys were just thugs so we should fight them without

In the first dream of the night, I was in some unfamiliar house with Wonderweiss, for some reason. It seems like I had to babysit Wonderweiss for someone, or something like that, because nobody else was around and the house we were in wasn't actually Wonderweiss's house at all (I guess it was my house in the dream, or something?)
Anyway, I had a book of some sort with pictures that seemed to be colored in with a crayon, and was showing those to Wonderweiss. Apparently he thought the pictures and the words with them were "dumbed down" too much in an attempt to make them understandable for retarded people, and he didn't like that since they went too far in the dumbing-down (and yeah... in the dream, he was able to talk normally, not just make weird "oooh" "aaah" sounds and tell you his name.) After a while of that we left the house and walked across this forested mountain highway-type road to another house, which was apparently where Wonderweiss

Miiverse quote: The legendary hero Riki appears as an Assist Trophy and in Shulk’s Final Smash!! As an Assist Trophy, he uses many arts like Happy Happy, Freezinate, and Yoink! He sounds a bit like Tingle…but don’t worry, Tingle will make an appearance too. By the way, a cursor will appear above Assist Trophies and Pokémon to indicate which fighter is its ally. Now you can tell right off the bat who it belongs to!!
Riki will be doubling as an Assist Trophy for SSB4, rather than remaining just in Shulk's Final Smash. Personally, I'm a little disappointed by this as I have a disliking of Riki despite my huge love for Xenoblade Chronicles, and I would have loved the Assist Trophy to be either Reyn or Melia. However, this is still better than nothing.

Not much of a dream, but I remember that I had apparently eaten one of those subs from Wal-Mart earlier in the day (for lunch?) and then I randomly decided to eat ANOTHER one for a snack. Mom saw this and got all bitchy about it, for some reason.

Several dreams, none of which seem to be connected at all.
First, there was one where I was running along some road/trail for some reason; it looked like the road that goes by the new middle school, but instead of being a paved road it was kind of dusty. There were these "mile marker" type things set up along the place where I was running, but apparently they were horribly inaccurate, because I had a pedometer type thing and when I had passed 14 or 15 mile markers (and noticed that they started being really close together and some of them had the wrong numbers; there was a 16 before the 14 and 15) the pedometer said I had only gone one-and-a-half miles. While running, I passed a g

Two weird dreams--or at least, I THINK they were two completely unrelated dreams... they didn't seem to have much in common aside from randomly taking place somewhere on the SVU campus.
Anyway, first one: I was sitting in the cafeteria eating lunch, on the entrance side of one of those rectangular tables closest to the entrance. Sitting across from me was some sort of robot girl who apparently really, really liked me for some reason. Apparently she was able to tell if other girls liked me, and considered them "enemies" for some reason. I pointed out that a girl that *I* liked was sitting on the next table over, and right as I said that someone else on that table got up so that Ruth was visible. She noticed me and waved, so I waved back at her. I'm not sure what the robot girl thought of that.
And the other one: Orihime was in the second floor hallway of Craton for some reason (odd since she's a girl and technically isn't ev

Welcome back to the show. Before I begin my late coverage, I want to give my condolences to those who suffered from the September 11 attacks. A lot of innocent people died that day. Four not-so-innocent people died that day also. Anyway, we shall give a small moment of silence for those lost on that day...and now we go to news.
In U.S. News
So, it's been 13 years since the day the Twin Towers fell. Something close to two thousand people died that day. It's a really terrible tragedy, and I'm sorry for anyone who's lost someone because of those attacks. Every time I walk around, I am reminded from the half-raised flags and signs that people indeed never forget. It's nice...or scary, to know that they're memories are like solid gold.

TRADITIONAL ANIMATED FEATURE FILMS OF THE 1990'sSome time ago I posted a series of reviews on DA of what I considered to be the best animated features of the 1990's. I chose that decade for the simple fact that more English language animated features were released in that time span than during the previous three decades COMBINED. It was a fleeting period of Renaissance for the art form. It was a golden age of traditional animation, the artistic equivalent of Periclean Athens. The reason for this is that the moribund Disney Studios suddenly escaped from the doldrums that it had been in since the death of Walt Disney. This transient boom began with the release of “The Little Mermaid” in 1989. Disney maintained a winning streak with “Beauty and the Beast” and “Aladdin”. Other studios looked at the ticket receipts and jumped on the band wagon. Studios such as Warner Brothers that had abandoned animation for nearly thirty years suddenly rebuilt their animation divisions and ramped up for major new animTRADITIONAL ANIMATED FEATURE FILMS OF THE 1990's3 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Hazelnut Scones, and MORE!Here's three recipes to kick off my new 'Recipe Box'!Hazelnut Scones, and MORE!4 days ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
2 C all-Purpose Flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C sugar
1/3 C butter

1 1/2 T Frangelico or other hazelnut-flavored liqueur
1 T sugar
18 whole hazelnuts
* Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture is crumbly. (If you don't have a pastry blender, just grab a regular dining fork; you'll achieve the same effect.) Stir in chopped hazelnuts; make a well in the center of the mixture, and set aside.
*Combine eggs, whipping cream, and liquer; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.
*Roll dough to 3/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface(New to working with pastry? Try to make sure that the kitchen isn't unbearably warm, or that you're working dough very close to a hot oven, since the dough will tend t
