Bitch, Bulbasaur, and Children: 4G19:50 Attempting to use the Mew Encounter exploit with a Pokemon with a special stat of over 250 results in encountering a glitch trainer who causes the game to just flip the absolute fuck out when trying to calculate how much money to award vou afterwards. This causes the relevant memory poiner to shoot off to god knows where, and as a result it just sets a solid two hundred unrelated hexadecimal values in the game to 99 in the process, filling your party with level 153 Bulbasaur that can only use explosion i dont understand half of the words here but god if this isn't the funniest thing i've ever read trenchgun im pretty sure red and blue weren't programmed but just sort of... mutated into cartridges prettyflyforajeskai Red and blue are why QA teams were invented biggaybunny for fuck's sake they weren't badly programmed. They were bleeding edge. It's so easy to forget that but Red and Blue were literally pushing the limits of what they could fit on the cartridge. They used every trick in the book. In that way, the programming behind them is GENIUS. It's frankly a lost art, in this era where hardware is insanely cheap 4G 19:50 biggaybunny for fuck's sake they weren't badly programmed. They were bleeding edge. It's so easy to forget that but Red and Blue were literally pushing the limits of what they could fit on the cartridge. They used every trick in the book. In that way, the programming behind them is GENIUS. It's frankly a lost art, in this era where hardware is insanely cheap and scalable, when you can just keep throwing more resources at the problem. But Red & Blue were when programmers had to get creative. Not currently using a piece of memory? Repurpose it, we can't just leave it lying around. Only have a couple registers? Juggle them, keep careful track so we can restore them when we needed. Does this data need to be single purpose, or can we also use it for, say, a seed value? And all this WORKED. I guarantee you 99% of children playing this never saw a bug in casual play. MODERN games are buggier by a landslide. Remember when X&Y came out and there was an ENTIRE CITY you couldn't save in because it'd DELETE YOUR SAVE? Imagine that happening in the days of Red&Blue. It couldn't have. I can turn on my red cartridge TODAY and have it work And the bugs that did exist, those edge cases they missed? They produce this behavior because the game REFUSES TO CRASH. Sure, you can make it crash if O419:51 possible. Y'all looking down from your 64-bit quad-core smartphones with 128GB SD cards like Red & Blue were programmed by amateurs. What, you also going to bitch that the Wright Brothers didn't make a jet engine? These are artifacts from pioneers who wrote the goddamn book that others would use as gospel Sincerely, a pissed off goddamn programmer.

Animals, Bad, and Complex: when you're in biology class and realize there are only two genders O @hkhwyw sgaprivilege: sonoanthony: hatingongodot: fandomsandfeminism: wuuthradical: fandomsandfeminism: wuuthradical: fandomsandfeminism: wuuthradical: themagicofthenight: Well considering gender has literally nothing to do with biology I doubt that would happen. Gender has everything to do with biology. We wouldn’t have a binary without it. They’re inseparable. Surprise: There is no binary. The binary is an oversimplification that is largely contextualized within Western culture.  We wouldn’t be here right now if there wasn’t a gender binary. Complex lifeforms need one to perpetuate themselves. Also incorrect. Sex is a spectrum. You’ll find that reality is rarely as simple as pure and uncompromising binaries.  Sex isn’t chromosomes: the story of a century of misconceptions about X YThe influence of the XX/XY model of chromosomal sex has been profound over the last century, but it’s founded on faulty premises and responsible for encouraging reductive, essentialist thinking. While the scientific world has moved on, its popular appeal remains. Have you considered that those scientists might be bias and pushing an agenda. Gender is a biological absolute. Gender is highly contextualized by time and place. Like, if you want to talk about scientists being biased and pushing an agenda, look at modern western science for pushing a flawed binary narrative. Non-binary genders are not a modern invention. The idea of third genders/non-binary genders is as old as human civilization, because gender is socially constructed and subjective, and people’s ideas about gender have changed over time and between cultures. In Mesopotamian mythology, among the earliest written records of humanity, there are references to types of people who are not men and not women. In a Sumerian creation myth found on a stone tablet from the second millennium BC, the goddess Ninmah fashions a being “with no male organ and no female organ”, for whom Enki finds a position in society: “to stand before the king”. In Babylonia, Sumer and Assyria, certain types of individuals who performed religious duties in the service of Inanna/Ishtar have been described as a third gender. Inscribed pottery shards from the Middle Kingdom of Egypt (2000–1800 BCE), found near ancient Thebes (now Luxor, Egypt), list three human genders: tai (male), sḫt (“sekhet”) and hmt (female). The Vedas (c. 1500 BC–500 BC) describe individuals as belonging to one of three categories, according to one’s nature or prakrti. These are also spelled out in the Kama Sutra (c. 4th century AD) and elsewhere as pums-prakrti (male-nature), stri-prakrti (female-nature), and tritiya-prakrti (third-nature). Many have interpreted the “eunuchs” of the Ancient Eastern Mediterranean world as a third gender that inhabited a liminal space between women and men, understood in their societies as somehow neither or both. In the Historia Augusta, the eunuch body is described as a tertium genus hominum (a third human gender), The ancient Maya civilization may have recognised a third gender, according to historian Matthew Looper. Looper notes the androgynous Maize Deity and masculine Moon goddess of Maya mythology, and iconography and inscriptions where rulers embody or impersonate these deities. He suggests that the third gender could also include two-spirit individuals with special roles such as healers or diviners Anthropologist Rosemary Joyce agrees, writing that “gender was a fluid potential, not a fixed category, before the Spaniards came to Mesoamerica. Childhood training and ritual shaped, but did not set, adult gender, which could encompass third genders and alternative sexualities as well as “male” and “female.” At the height of the Classic period, Maya rulers presented themselves as embodying the entire range of gender possibilities, from male through female, by wearing blended costumes and playing male and female roles in state ceremonies.“ Andean Studies scholar Michael Horswell writes that third-gendered ritual attendants to chuqui chinchay, a jaguar deity in Incan mythology, were “vital actors in Andean ceremonies” prior to Spanish colonisation. Two-spirit individuals are viewed in some Native American cultures as having two identities occupying one body. Their dress is usually a mixture of traditionally male and traditionally female articles, or they may dress as a man one day, and a woman on another. In Pakistan, the hijras are officially recognized as third gender by the government, [Source] [source] [source] [Source] [Source] [source] [source][source] [Read More] [Read more] [Read more] it’s amazing how quickly “science says there are only two genders” becomes “have you considered that science is fake and is pushing an agenda?” I’m a biologist and I can assure you the 2 gender binary doesn’t exist. All around we see animals that don’t fall into either categories. Gender is a spectrum is the realest line there is when it comes to biology and gender. Cis people: Science says the truth. Science: *Says they’re wrong* Cis people: Actually, you know what, science is bad and is lying.

Complex, Lol, and Memes: MOOD DISORDER SOUNDS BULLSHIT SLHTLY BETTER ARTICULATED moGD DisoRDER MoaD DISORDER How HORRID FOR yoU EXTREMELY WELL ARTICULPTED ENOTONAL EXPERIENCE t でECOVTEXT" OF BEING A PERSON LOL SAME I find the mental illness and relatability thing very interesting. I think the gradual normalisation of being open about emotional experiences and feelings in general is ace. And I think creating images and words about mental illness can also expose some of the giant flaws with the rigidity of the psychiatric model when it comes to the DSM (preoccupations with fitting into one label-one box-one specific set of symptoms are challenged when you see or read stuff you relate to by someone with a different Dx, for example. This is positive). Sharing drawings and being related to has helped me see my own issues as a much more complex Web of Stuff than whatever clinical list of bullet points I may resemble most closely. Two or three years ago I think the dialogue in the bottom image would have pissed me off. "How dare anyone who didn't have severe illness relate to my experience?" Etc. I self-perpetuated negative beliefs about myself and my behaviours because I'd been treated as "young woman with X, Y, Z Disorders" for so long. And I really thought everything I felt-went through must have been because of some psychiatric acronyms. Then I thought some more and realised what people were probably relating to at large was my human experience; My insecurities and fears and happiness and silliness and all the threads of my personality that run independent of my illness or labels i'd had lobbed at me. We are multi-threaded, and they can feed into one another, but blimey do we all have shit going on. This is a right ramble from what is probably a giant can o' worms, but I just find it interesting ya know? I like how the platforms we have for expression now can open up these little corners of mutual understanding-solidarity that might otherwise have not been there.
