braceandaim: murdercide626: randomhatthief: noxaldia: catbountry: thewillowisp: roguesquirrel: If Hotel Transylvania didn’t come out, this would have been the #1 animated film walkcycle in 2012 Jesus King Candy, HOW DO YOU EVEN DO THAT?! His feet are just twirling on his ankles it’s fucking magical. Okay I don’t normally do this but let me just say something about this animation and the sheer amount of detail they put into this walk-cycle in correlation to the character themselves. The way he walks in this first real ‘introduction’ to the character; notice how his legs go straight out to the sides of him while he twirls his feet- like the wheels of the cars he has been programmed to drive. Not only that, but the lull in his walk is exactly like spinning your tires while breaking (or revving one’s engine), which happens at the start of every cart-racing game. Also, his hand literally changes gears and ‘locks’ before his shooing hand gesture, before returning to the unseen gear-shift. Even in the second shot close-up, he stops in perfect time of 3, the same as the ‘ready, set, go!’ of racing games. He is literally embodying both his car and racing games in general. His animation team made him into the true ‘king’ of cart-racing. HOLYFUCKINGSHIT Holy Hera! I didn’t even consider that! 8O That just makes him that much more awesome! :D And kudos to those awesome Disney animators for always finding ways to add nice little touches to the characters in their films. :) I just sincerely love this post : braceandaim: murdercide626: randomhatthief: noxaldia: catbountry: thewillowisp: roguesquirrel: If Hotel Transylvania didn’t come out, this would have been the #1 animated film walkcycle in 2012 Jesus King Candy, HOW DO YOU EVEN DO THAT?!

raakxhyr: Just a PSA for those who didn’t see : Pokémon GO @CatchEmAll rt to spread the word GO Clarifying Misinformation Farfetch'd is only capturable in Asia Tauros is only capturable in North America Mr. Mime is only capturable in Europe angasghan is only capturable in Australia All these pokemon can be hatched from 5km eggs regardless of where you live. Zapdos, Articuno, Moltres, Mewtwo, Mew and Ditto are all unobtainable, they have ingame models and are programmed into the game however they do not spawn, they are most likely being saved for an event however this is speculation. If you see anyone who says they have or have seen any legendary or a Ditto they are lying or have been misinformed. It also took someone who has very low photoshop ability (me) 5 mins to fake a nearby Zapdos so dont belive screenshots either. The nearby tab is currently broken due to a bug, all pokemon show they are 3 feet away de- spite distance, this also makes the order they appear in incorrect. Niantic has stated that they intend to include every generation of Pokemon into the game, obviously releasing them one generation at a time is a good way to stop people getting overwhelmed and i wouldnt expect gen 2 for at least 3 months. (the timeframe is speculation there hasnt been a statement, however since their servers cant stay up for a whole day without crashing and that some people would be overwhelmed or just dont want further generations we will most likely be waiting a while) Tapping on Pokeballs if you miss your throw does not pick them up, this was a popular thing people were saying for a while, it looks like you pick it up but the number does not actually increase. pokehuntr.com and pokevision.com are websites that allows you to search for pokemon in your nearby area, it shows you exactly where they are and how long until they leave, it uses the Niantic API and is technically cheating so use with your own discretion raakxhyr: Just a PSA for those who didn’t see

Right now. WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN YOU WEREN’T BORN YET IN 1999. Ahh the Millenium bug. It wasn’t a virus, it was an issue with how some old computers at the time were programmed to deal with dates. Basically some computers with older operating systems didn’t have anything in place to deal with the year reaching 99 and looping around to 00. It was believed that this inability to sync with the correct date would cause issues, and even crash entire systems the moment the date changed. People flipped out about it, convinced that the date discrepancy between netwoked systems would bring down computers everywhere and shut down the internet and so all systems relying on computers, including plane navigation etc. would go down causing worldwide chaos. It was genuinely believed that people should all switch off computers to avoid this. One or two smart people spoke up and said “um hey, this actually will only effect a few very outdated computers and they’ll just display the wrong date, so it probably won’t be harmful” but were largely ignored because people selling books about the end of the world were talking louder. In the end, absolutely nothing happened. Oh gosh. I’ve been a programmer working for various government agencies since the early 1990s and I can say with some confidence: NOTHING HAPPENED BECAUSE WE WORKED VERY HARD FIXING SHIT THAT MOST DEFINITELY WOULD HAVE BROKEN ON 1-JAN-2000. One example I personally worked on: vaccination databases. My contract was with the CDC to coordinate immunization registries — you know, kids’ vaccine histories. What they got, when they got it, and (most importantly) which vaccines they were due to get next and when. These were state-wide registries, containing millions of records each. Most of these systems were designed in the 1970s and 1980s, and stored the child’s DOB year as only two digits. This means that — had we not fixed it — just about every child in all the databases I worked on would have SUDDENLY AGED OUT OF THE PROGRAM 1-JAN-2000. In other words: these kids would suddenly be “too old” to receive critical vaccines. Okay, so that’s not a nuke plant exploding or airplanes dropping from the sky. In fact, nothing obvious would have occurred come Jan 1st. BUT Without the software advising doctors when to give vaccinations, an entire generation’s immunity to things like measles, mumps, smallpox (etc) would have been compromised. And nobody would even know there was a problem for months — possibly years — after. You think the fun & games caused by a few anti-vaxers is bad? Imagine whole populations going unvaccinated by accident… one case of measles and the death toll might be measured in millions. This is one example I KNOW to be true, because I was there. I also know that in the years leading up to 2000 there were ad-hoc discussion groups (particularly alt.risk) of amazed programmers and project managers that uncovered year-2000 traps… and fixed them. Quietly, without fanfare.  In many cases because admitting there was a problem would have resulted in a lawsuit by angry customers. But mostly because it was our job to fix those design flaws before anyone was inconvenienced or hurt. So, yeah… all that Y2K hysteria was for nothing, because programmers worked their asses off to make sure it was for nothing. Bolding mine. Absolutely true.  My Mom worked like crazy all throughout 1998 and 1999 on dozens of systems to avoid Y2K crashes. Nothing major happened because people worked to made sure it didn’t. Now if we could just harness that concept for some of the other major issues facing us today.   this meme came so far since i saw it this morning. god i love tumblr teaching tumblr about history. As a young Sys Admin during Y2K, I can confirm that it was SRS BZNS.  I worked for a major pharmaceutical company at the time.  They spent millions of dollars on consultant and programmer hours, not to mention their own employees’ time, to fix all their in-house software as well as replace it with new systems.  Sys Admins like myself were continually deploying patches, updating firmware, and deploying new systems in the months leading up to Y2K.  Once that was done, though, the programmers went home and cashed their checks. When the FATEFUL HOUR came along, it wasn’t just one hour.  For a global company with offices in dozens of countries, it was 24 hours of being alert and on-call.  I imagine that other large organizations had similar setups with entire IT departments working in shifts to monitor everything.  Everyone was on a hair trigger, too, so the slightest problem caused ALL HANDS ON DECK pages to go out. Yes, we had pagers. For hard numbers IDC’s 2006 calculation put the total US cost of remediation, before and after, at $147 billion - that’s in 1999 dollars.  That paid for an army of programmers, including calling up retired grandparents from the senior center because COBOL and FORTRAN apps from the ‘60s needed fixing. Also note that there were some problems, including $13 billion in remediation included in the figure above.  Some of these involved nuclear power plants, medical equipment, and “a customer at a New York State video rental store had a bill for $91,250, the cost of renting the movie ‘The General’s Daughter’ for 100 years.” Y2K was anything but nothing.

17mul: cosmic-noir: blackgirlshit: dickprintbandit: flyandfamousblackgirls: “How A Homeless Single Mother Became A Millionaire in 18 Months” After a separation from her husband, Elon Bomani and her newborn son moved into a women’s shelter. She says, “I found myself homeless because I had given up my power. I bought into the idea that men were better at math than women even though I had graduated with two degrees. I was programmed that men are supposed to be the providers and handle the checkbooks.” “I went to the library and punched in millionaire and I read every single book on biographies of millionaires, anything dealing with money, stocks, bonds, real estate, commodities trading, e-business, taxes, you name it.” Bomani’s first priority was to leave the shelter and move into her own home. Though she had $36 dollars in her checking account, she knew her dream could come true. With the advice of her father, she studied real estate guru Carleton Sheets’ “no money down programs.” She found a lender that would finance 100 percent of her home loan. She asked the seller to pay closing costs on the $125,000 home and walked away from the closing with a $625 dollar check. Without a job, Bomani says, this was just the beginning of her journey. “I thought creatively. I rented out my room. By renting out one of my rooms, that gave me half the mortgage, the other half was her (roommate) deposit. “I didn’t have to pay my first mortgage until a month and a half later. With a new wealth consciousness, she recognized the housing market was profitable at the time and then took equity out of her home to invest in other properties. “I did speculative real estate investing. I went to new developments and put a down payment on property to hold it until it closed. The property closed within a year and it had already increased in excess of $100,000. So I invested approximately $20,000 ($5,000 on four properties) using cash advances from credit cards, not even my money. I walked out of the deal with $400,000.” “I accumulated over 16 pieces of real estate property over the course of three years. In doing so, that gave me a net worth of $2 million dollars and I was able to live off the positive cash flow of the real estate. “Being a millionaire, it’s a formula to it. If you study it and practice it, you’ll become it.” Today, Bomani owns and operates four companies and has a book out, titled: “Dynamic Diva Dollars.” WOW! Salute a Real One When You See On 😵😵😵 goals 😎 inspiration I dont mean to denigrate her experience but this is all wrong. There is no formula to success or being rich. This is false and is constantly being preached by pro-capitalists who think that the poor are simply lazy/doing the wrong thing and that the rich are culturally, morally, and cognitively superior. YES, having goals, getting an education, changing bad habits, and studying successful people can all SLIGHTLY INCREASE THE PROBABILITY of you succeeding but it is in no way formulaic in the sense that if you do X thing you will become rich. As a sedulent student of economics, the data show that most rich people are rich because there family was rich or because they got lucky. People do not like this conclusion but a lot of data support this. I would recommend reading Nasim Taleb’s book called “The Black Swan” which shows you just how much randomness and luck play a role in our everyday lives. I would also read Daniel Kahneman’s masterpiece “Thinking Fast and Slow” which shows you in several parts of the book how Ceo’s, companys, and many great figures got to where they were because sheer luck.  Don’t believe me ? Well let’s look at Elon Bomani (the single mother this post is about).  “she recognized the housing market was profitable”   well here is a sign of luck. Sure she recognized the housing market was profitable (i doubt most people who claim they know when something is good or bad in the economy since the economy isn’t the easiest thing to read but thats a subject for another time) but had the market been bad due to her being homeless during the wrong time (luck) she wouldn’t have been successful or as successful. Also her finding someone who would give her credit given her homelessness  and her being black and female is not only unlikely but super lucky of her. I have more to say but frankly I won’t cus this post is too long , but the reason why I am against this kind of rhetoric isn’t because i want to silence a WOC and her experiences - it’s because this kind of rhetoric is harmful and just not true because 1. most of the rich people you’d study had a lot of privilege to begin with 2. most really rich people had some aspect of luck play into their lives (remember they are outliers to begin with)  3. telling poor people to simply glorify the rich and their habits implies many negative things that aren’t true 4. capitalism is a system that depends on people to be on the bottom. even if everyone tried to do this (her method) and even if it did work (it doesnt but lets pretend it does) …. it would fail since you can’t all have millionaires. you NEED poor people under capitalism. at least in america. idk i hate being negative on people’s success stories but i also dont want bad information being spread around. im happy she became successful but she is one out of a million people who try to do the same and fail. Im happy for her though. : 17mul: cosmic-noir: blackgirlshit: dickprintbandit: flyandfamousblackgirls: “How A Homeless Single Mother Became A Millionaire in 18 Months” After a separation from her husband, Elon Bomani and her newborn son moved into a women’s shelter.
