NO BUT YOU ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND HOW FUNNY THIS IS THEYRE LITERALLY FILLING A ROBOT WITH BULLETS, LIKE BULLETS THAT YOU FIRE FROM A GUN. NOW NORMALLY FIRING A GUN TRIGGERS THE BULLET TO EXPLODE CREATING A PRESSURE THAT CAUSES THE TIP OF THE BULLET TO BE FORCED OUT OF THE BARREL AT A HIGH SPEED.
WHaT CAVE JOHNSON’S TURRET’S DO IS LOAD A TON OF FUCKING BULLETS INTO THE CASE OF THE SENTRY LIKE IT”S A GODDAMN GUMBALL MACHINE AND THEN USE A FUcKIN SPRING LOADED PISTON TO FIRE IT THAT IS SO UNNECESSARY AND INEFFECTIVE LIKE NO WONDER CHELL CAN RESIST SO MANY BULLETS THE LIKELIHOOD ITD CAUSE ANYTHING MORE THAN A BAD BRUISE IS LIKE ONE IN A HUNDRED
Tripedal to the Metal
That’s some loco motion, huh? Found this neat little GIF showing how an ant’s legs move at a full gallop. While calmly strolling though the picnic grounds, ants have five of their six legs at a time in contact with the ground. But when it’s time to put the (tiny) pedal to the metal, they change their gait to this alternating tripod motion.
This pattern isn’t controlled by the insect’s brain, but rather by bundles of neurons in the leg called central pattern generators. While moving at such a clip, it just so happens that three legs is the minimum number it needs on the ground at a time to balance its rigid exoskeleton without toppling over.
Is that part of the reason that insects have six legs and not another number like four or eight? Or did the gait evolve to match the hardware? My guess is the latter, but I am not sure. What say you, insect folks?

NEW ITEMS HAVE ARRIVED.
I have been a traditional and digital artist long before being a textile artist - so here’s something new to show even more of what I can do!
CUTIE PIE ZIPPER POUCHES! Professionally printed with artwork by yours truly.
Made from high quality polyester, fully lined, and even padded to protect your items! Big enough to carry your 3DS (but not XL, I am ordering larger sizes though!), your smartphone, makeup, money/cards, or anything you could think of!
These pouches are test prints, I have new ones on their way to me which will be available VERY soon.
Pouches are available in my etsy shop! (Little Pumpkaboo currently not in stock but restocking soon.)

This Is still my favourite picture ever
The picture speaks for itself
There’s a snake in my snake
a good response to the question “how old are you?” is something along the lines of “dunno i stopped counting after the first few centuries”
and it needs to be said seriously without smiling or humor or as casually as possible and followed by “so anyway” and a subject change as if it’s completely normal
Ok so this is a condom. I realize the picture is really shitty. So one brand condoms thing is that they have a different phrase with the word one on it on each condom. For example some say one happy camper or all for one or something like that. This condom says “all men have one” on it. And thats really bad because actually, no, not all men have a penis. Im really upset because i generally like this brand but heres some casual cissexism. And coming from a company thats entire business is sex, thats a major problem. Ugh i am not explaining well but i am sad.
im an idiot and posted this to the wrong blog
