You might wanna hold back on publishing this one for a few days, but HOLY SHIT.

This group believed women were held back in the video gaming industry… so rather than whining, they were going to do something about it. They held a contest where women would submit ideas and they’d get art for them, and then people would vote on the idea the group would make into a game. The women who came up with the concept would get 8% of the money made, with the rest of the profits going to charity.

Zoe didn’t like this. She claimed their policy on trans women being accepted was transphobic (because she misunderstood) and insisted they should’ve been giving the women 100% of the profits. Vide game news sites took her opinion at face value and they got no coverage.

4chan doesn’t like the treatment they’ve gotten in this whole debacle. So some of them decided to show they cared about women, just not abusive women. This is the result. Note they raised about 8000$ in just a day.

Wow, this is amazing…

Yep! They’re at like 20,000$ now and growing. You can donate too, here.

Then you can also vote on the idea you like best right here!



Is there anything a natural 20 can’t do?

This is a poster idea I developed to show off the amazingness of tabletop rpgs.

This is pretty amazing, and actually fantastic design work.

Oh gosh this Zoe Quinn thing

I’ve been browsing /v/ and /pol/ after the whole InternetAristocrat video came out, and there’s seriously what /v/’s calling a ‘false flag operation’ going on, where ZQ is actually trying to fake her own ‘hacked by the big bad Anonymous’ thing in order to drum up support. She- or SOMEONE- is posting pictures from her own twitter, with the ‘delete this tweet’ button up. Not to mention that all these ‘hacker manifesto’ pictures are saying things like “Hello everyone, I am the head mod over at /V/ and leader of and Anonymous.” Regardless of the fact that /v/ as a whole has decided not to dox anybody, the fact that there are no mods for specific boards- 4chan mods work site-wide. And finally, who the hell uses a capital letter for a ‘chan board? Nobody who actually goes there, at least.

Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)

Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.

Awesome explanation.

holy shit

I read somewhere that sirens/mermaids sang songs that they heard from sailors on passing ships. I imagine this is what a modern siren would sound like singing this song.
