What's going on with all the cow girl porn
in the chinese calendar this is (will be from feb 12) the Year of the Ox, that GBF character has a cow costume because of that, it's also the reason of the influx of cowgirls porn (for which I am eternally grateful)

As a side note Minamoto no Raikou in FGO is the incarnation of Gozu Tenno the Ox King, meaning this is the year of Raikou and I'm glad I'm living it!

I thought we had a Motorsport thread but i can't find it.
For anyone interested this reddit thread has a collection of links that'll be handy for following DAKAR 2021... which started yesterday and ends on the 15th Jan.

Hey, I won't derail the Steam thread for a change ! Why, yes, it's so OT even I wouldn't even dare.

A little post to bitch about banks.
One of my mother bank accounts see next to no use. With the contract renewing soon and a 30 euros bill we wrote to them to shut down a mail notification service (3 euros a month) and her credit card (30 euros a year).
...
No answer, because politeness is some strange alien concept.

But they stopped sending the notification, and I was nearly hopeful.
Then today, after a month without it, we received new one.

Totally prepared to be billed 30 euros and being explained that because of some loony excuse no one could possibly imagine, they couldn't cancel the card. And couldn't warn us. Because.

There are really few things I hate more than banks.

Cool beans !
So much progress today for shit I had on the back of my mind.

So the bank closed the Credit Card, but kept the email notification, because. Works by me, it's 3 euros a month and they nuked the bigger thing.
And I was assured by a state agent that, normally, we shouldn't have to pay 800+ euros to correct our taxes this year. That it was, aaaah, because.
Yeah, I'm super on top when it comes to numbers.

Jeezus, at last.

Now I just have to deal with a social worker that decided to turn my life around by making me go see this people or that other one, when the whole fucking country is shitting bricks about the Covid variant. Fuck's sake, does it only happen to me ? I swear, I must have stepped on a black cat under a ladder.

Don't step on cats, period!

And the best to you, seems like a really tough time all around. I hope the world cuts you a break really soon.

I have returned after joining last year! It was shortly after this Covid hit, I was completely swamped at work for months.

It was a surreal year. Not all bad, my wife and I are expecting our first this May. Though with the state of the world, I suppose this is its own challenge.
Congrats for the incoming poopmachine. Kids are the greatest and the worst. :D

Actor with cannibal fantasies, eating mealworm, gif of a reality tv person eating a big worm live.

I really have to rethink my news source.

A glass with Double Gin and a bottle of Smirnoff Ice or Metz was the weapon of choice for the Finnish girl i knew.
Holy crap that got you blasted but the sugar kept you going. Good times.

Mmh, not to be a Debbie Downer, but this is stretching my definition of a Mario Kart shortcut by some margin :dizzy-face:

Why? It's a shortcut but you just need insane skills from hundreds of hours of practice to pull it off :D
Most of these people have raced these tracks literally thousands of times. It's insane dedication.

Well I think my 'unease' comes from the definition one puts behind the term 'shortcut' in a video game. I'm maybe restricting things too much, but I tend to think a shortcut is deliberately set up by the developer. It looks a little too much like a glitch here. I mean, just looking at the starting move where the player has too stick to the exterior of the fence.
Can you say, in a video game at least, that a shortcut is still a shortcut if it isn't intentional ?
...
Am I really semanticsophying a Mario Kart video ? :thinking-blob:

edit
I should buy a pipe and a tweed vest. Then fill a glass of bourbon and sit in my imaginary armchair.

Li Kao Don't watch this :D


Actually do watch it and some of his other World Record history videos. Trackmania is crazy. Watch the "Turbulence" video to see the cat-and-mouse game between the track designer and the community.

You do what you want, of course, and I definitively see your argument. Still, if you look past the discomfort at the way the game is played and instead focus on that microcosm, that world of records obtained that particular way as described in the Summoning Salt expose, I think you might enjoy it and understand our amazement at that WR.

5 years of attempts, let that sink in :p. It's not some cheap exploit, it requires amazing practice and execution to pull off.

Unease was in quotes, I'm not bothered by any of it, just chilling with you friends.
But to use your words, yeah, I suppose my position is that it's an exploit, albeit a totally amazing and crazy one to execute. Not denying the WR being a thing here.
