I’ve got this speculative Boom fic I’m working on and I need to name the Crystal Guardians, but I’m stumped.

So far I’ve got Leviathan (Tidal), Cherufe (Volcanic), Jörð (Gaia), Sarimanok (Fortuna), and Apollyon (Vanitas). That leaves Gold, Mirror, and Zorya (Time). (Aether doesn’t have a proper Guardian) Note that I’m referring to this

I want to name the Gold Guardian after one of the humongous mecha-like machines from the Rigveda, but I can’t remember who was said to pilot them, much less what they were called in the first place.

Palcomix is such a rich well of narm that it’s pretty much the only real reason why I ever visited the site more than once.

One thing about their Mobius Unleashed stuff (well, one thing among many) that bugs me is that IIRC Finitevus is one of the, uh, “protagonists” (and I use that term guardedly). I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that, based on his views of Mobius and how everyone on it is gutter swill, canon Finitevus is more than likely sex-repulsed.

The fully-assembled Babylon Rouges, aka Team Typhoon.

Explanation: back in ‘05 or ‘06, I theorized that the Babylon Rouges were named such because they defected from their country to get away from a war they didn’t approve of; that developed into them originally having been a six-person team that got temporarily split up. I redesigned the OC half back in 2012, then tweaked them again for this.

Stream’s name is unchanged; Shock and Thunder were previously called Kalya and Askita, which didn’t fit the theme naming. Knockabiller proposed some more fitting names that played off of the canon Rogues’, and also suggested the title for the full team.

Unlike most group pics of mine, this time I experimented with drawing everyone separately and assembling them in Photoshop. I dunno how many hours that ended up taking.

Note: if everyone seems unusually tall, they’re really not. Jet’s pretty short (barely taller than Sonic, who’s incredibly tiny).

A Glasgow nightclub has installed a two-way mirror which allows male revellers in private booths to spy on unsuspecting women as they visit the toilet! With no notification or signage anywhere in the venue many female club goers have been left feeling embarrassed and used. Although they do briefly show the mirrors in a promo video, the club has been quickly deleting comments and posts on their social media from club goers trying to alert others to the situation. This is pretty much illegal and hugley violates privacy. Thank you The Shimmy Club for giving us a shiny, new, creative and cool take on objectification. article here

i’m never leaving my house again, this world is just too fucked up.

WHAT!?

gross gross gross gross gross

Good morning disgusting. Remember ladies:
 “No space, leave the place” (fingernail test)
A two way mirror must be set INTO the wall, not placed on top of it.
If you rap/knock against the mirror, one installed onto a wall (a normal mirror) will make a dull sound, because there’s something behind it. A two-way will have more reverberation.
Use the flashlight on your phone to shine on the mirror, if it’s a two-way, you’ll be able to see into the other room.
You can also shield your eyes and see in if you lean up against the glass.
The room being viewed will have to be brightly lit (10x brighter than the room looking in), so if you’re in a typical dimly lit club bathroom, you’re ok.

They have this in Continental Midtown in Philly, it’s fucking creepy and not cool at all

the most obvious solution i can think of is to break that motherfucker. what are they going to do? sue you for breaking something they shouldnt have had?

That’s fucking disgusting.

Hey, fellas. You ever feel like you have to check if you’re standing in front of a two-way mirror? Women do.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!

Please take note that the fingernail test is fake as different regular mirrors sometimes have different properties, but the rest of the checklist is all true

Funny story about Storm’s sclera. For the longest time, due to his main artwork for the first Riders, I thought they were black. I was talking with Knockabiller earlier and they reminded me of another bit of Riders art that CLEARLY SHOWS that he had black sclera with white irises.
Sometime in 2012 I came across Storm’s Sonic Channel art, and that was when I finally figured out that he has normal blue eyes. So the question now is, did Storm legit have black sclera at some point in development (or even all throughout the first game), or was that just an artistic goof?

Sonic Blast/G Sonic is kinda weird. I dunno about the US manual as Replacementdocs doesn’t seem to have it, but the JP one states that the Chaos Emeralds are protected by/at South Island (“The Island of Peace”), and the wording kinda makes it sound like Sonic is a dedicated Guardian like Knux (incidentally, Knux is just said to be his rival here, with no allusions to his own duties).

The intro also depicts a large Chaos Emerald splitting off into five smaller ones (violet and cyan are absent); it’s reminiscent of the Super Emeralds and cycles through colours like Hyper Sonic.

Sometimes I wonder what it’d be like if Sonic got a comic by one of the foreign Disney comic teams (the ones I usually think of are from Italy) and they were given the freedom to interpret things as they wished, within reason.

If there was a main Freedom Fighter team, would they forgo the usual lineup (Knothole, Emerald Hill, or just “all the mains not already on a team”) and have Sonic work with, say, Big, Charmy, Carrotia, and Gamma? What kind of adventures would they be getting into this time around?
