And don't worry, it doesn't involve anything dirty-related, but it felt like I was actually part of the show I was dreaming about.
Weeks ago I dreamed that I was in a underground water-park with the TMNTs, and we were just enjoying it like there's no tomorrow.
Nothing too extreme happened, but according to the Dream Dictionary, it was representing my thoughts on the new 2012 series (which mostly enjoyment and feeling like I'm a kid again).
And last night, I was dreaming that I was part of the world of "One Piece." I was even animated like my OP ego, and going on adventures with the Strawhat Crew.
The event that happened in the dream are mostly happened like an actual episode (without the "to be continued" crap), and the characters actually interact with me like how the "Characters think about you" quizzes I took [which means two character have big crushes on me and just fight for my attention (though you probably might've guessed who they are, an

Germany woke up with a yawn. He hadn't been feeling that great lately and he was feeling a little better today, admittedly. That is, until he tried to jump out of his bed like he normally would do. He couldn't stand upright on both legs. He was on all fours-- and... And was that fur, covering his body? He wanted to scream out, he really did. This was the work of England.
He ran to his dresser and hopped up on it, staring in the mirror. His eyes widened.
He was a cat.
He let out a loud distressed meow, running for the door and clawing at it.
You decided to visit Germany today. He had been feeling ill and you wanted to bring him something to make him feel better. You walked to his house and knocked on the door. It was unlocked.

Comics Class at UC BerkeleyComics Class at UC Berkeley2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey! For those of you who are students at UC Berkeley this year, it's time to sign up for classes again!
My excellent roommate and friends will be teaching a comics class this semester I will not be teaching it myself (though I might visit from time to time to pester them lol). If you like storytelling and want to create comics with others, this is a place to start! People will work to create 3 comic projects through out the semester, both group and individual comics. These comics will be published online as they are finished.
My roommate helped teach this course spring last year, and it was a great way to get in the practice of drawing in a group, as well as for a deadline. It's also a great way to meet a lot of other people who love comics through the course. (I met my roommate through teaching a digital painting class 2 years ago XD ).

If you picked 'Dont Swap' you are wrongI am afraid if you picked 'Don't Swap' on the last journal/poll then you picked the wrong answer. In this situation you should ALWAYS SWAP.

You are on Ry's Game Show, there are three doors, Door A, B and C. One has a bag of cash, two has peanuts, now Im the only one who knows which door the money lies. So I ask you to pick a door, you pointed at door A. I then opened door C to reveal there's a peanut there. You are left with Door A and Door B, I then ask if you wanna swap your choices, would you swap?
Here's why you should always swap. Its a little bit hard to grasp a solid understanding of it but here goes. This is called the Monty Hall Problem by the way. Just keep in mind that the host KNOWS where the money is so when he reveals the door, he ALWAYS opens the one thats peanuts. And also keep in mind that its always 1/3 chan

He managed to get some wolves into possession and carefully put them together to have cubs. Neither Jeans nor genes were known at his time, but Phillip did know that children looked different from their parents and also exhibited different personalities. Maybe the wolves would eventually have an offspring that his tribe could use.
Genes are the blueprints of a being, how it is shaped, how it grows and in many ways even how it behaves. But these blueprints don't copy perfectly. There are small alterations, changes, and so a new animal would always be slightly different from the animals that came before. Perhaps it would have the tendency to be more playful, or it may be better at sniffing, or it may be friendlier towards other beings, such as Phillip himself.

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
