Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 

THIS IS THE THING SOME PEOPLE HATE OTHER PEOPLE OVER.Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

If you live where it’s cloudy and cold, you have to be pale so your body can produce enough vitamin D, which requires sunlight.
If you live where it’s hot and sunny, you need additional resistance to damage from the sun but you’re fine for vitamin D.
People like to think survival of the fittest means bigger, meaner, stronger or smarter. It doesn’t. It just means whatever is helpful in the environment is going to do better in the long term and the frequency of those traits will increase by process of selection until the environment changes. Teamwork, compassion and empathy are major advantages for a social species. Which we are.
It is just sad to think that a pair of traits that can be equalized with a Centrum and a tube of sunscreen have been used as an excuse for so much brutality and hate.

Retro pugs. 

This is a recreation of the original pug. They can do many things the modern pug can't, like going out in cold and heat and actually working. They are not perfect, but maybe one day they will be.

these are adorable. the tails aren’t so tightly curled either, which is nice.

just something to think about: Pug breeding in Germany is not the same as Pug breeding elsewhere. Germany has anti-torture breeding restrictions, due to breeds like Pugs and Pekes not being able to just be dogs. MPRV Pugs have longer legs, extended muzzles, less-tightly curled tails, and eyes that sit IN the head and look in the same direction!

this breeding practice needs to spread.

So yeah, here’s an edited version of a stupid, sketchy comic I did back after Before the Alley of the Dolls came out, but before The City That Dares Not Sleep, where I speculated about what would happen to all the Sam clones. There were only two pages, the first is here in its mostly entirety (I spray painted out one word), and some croppings of the best panels from the second page.

It’s pretty obvious by the discussion being had by Sam and Max on page one that I had no idea how the last chapter of the game was going to end up going down.

Anywho, that middle picture is also the origin of the character of Octavian. Also, Max poking a confused clone in the belly. Good times.

Wow

We always thought there was something wrong with the woman upstairs, but today, someone actually called 911 when she was having one of her screaming fits (started at around 5 in the morning, and didn’t stop until around seven, when the paramedics showed up the first time), and just now, they came back and took her away in an ambulance.

I hope she gets the help she needs, but at the same time, I’m just hoping I’ll be able to actually get some sleep now that the stomp and scream monster is gone. Bleah.

I said I’d post these guys a while back, but I still haven’t finished drawing them, except the guy at the top there, so here’s mostly half finished sketches for now.

These are the Sam clones who are going to be most active during the Sam and Max fic I’m currently plotting out. At the top is Samuel. Quite frankly, he hates Sam and blames him for most of his, and as such, the other clones’, problems, even though logic dictates that it’s not Sam’s fault at all. He refuses to go by any other name, however, (especially since it ticks Sam off) so they decide to call him by his full name just to reduce confusion. He sees himself as a guardian, and is pretty much de facto leader of the clones. He’s also a grump; pretty much Noir Sam on a bad day, though somewhat more militant, and wears his Clone ID tags as a sort of badge of honour. Underneath all that, though, he’s a big ol’ softie.

Second, we have Octavian. His name is a joke Tyrone (the third and forth sketches) came up with, a play on the number eight and it’s association with craziness. (IE Crazy Eights, Section Eight.) Samuel rescued him from becoming street pizza during Elder God Max’s rampage, but Octavian still took a bad blow to the head, and it pretty much scrambled his still forming personality. All he can say is, “I say! Toys!” Samuel has since taken him under his wing, and he follows the grumpier clone wherever he goes. He’s actually based on a short, goofy comic sketch I did back after Beyond the Alley of the Dolls came out, but before The City That Dares Not Sleep. Maybe I’ll post a cropping of that later on.

And lastly, we have Tyrone, the tech geek clone. The first sketch was just me screwing around and drawing Sam in nerdy clothes for whatever reason, but that’s what inspired the whole idea of the clones, while still being Sam at their base, taking on seperate qualities based on Sam’s personality, kinda like the Links in the Four Swords manga. Either way, the first doodle was just stereotypical nerd, but then I did him up as more of a tech geek, complete with Doctor Who shirt for the hell of it. ^_^

Anyway, Tyrone is the clone Momma Bosco took in, which is why he rediscovered his nack with computers. He’s also oddly meek, but that’s partly due to his dealing with Momma B, and the whole deal with Sam Astral Projecting into him at one point. He chose his name himself, since no one else would give him one and he didn’t feel right going by Sam or any variant therein. It just happened to be the same one Sam used to fool the space gorrilla in They Stole Max’s Brain! I also like to think he’s the clone who was carrying around the stuffed rabbit doll, who appeared to get squashed at the end of the fourth episode (because that sucked), but how he survived is a little convoluted and I’ve already gone on long enough as it is.

If you want to know more about them, feel free to toss me a question. I’ll answer it if I don’t deem it too spoilery. ^_^

(As for the doofy teeth, I can’t rightly recall why I draw the clones like that. I think it had something to do with concept art going around the Telltale forums at the time, but I could be wrong. Ah well.)

THE BEST JOKE IN EXISTENCE

GOD I JUST TOLD SOMEONE ABOUT THIS STORY

This is one of the best pieces of comedy that I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing. I love this. I have been looking for this online for awhile.

Do you know what I hate? Being awakened by someone else’s alarm clock. Know what else I hate? Not being able to go back to sleep, because that someone else won’t turn their alarm clock off, even when I bang the ceiling in protest, BECAUSE THEY AREN’T FUCKING HOME. Being awakened two hours early by shitty pop music that won’t go away is not the best way for me to start off my day, and now I’m gonna be in a murderous rage for the rest of the day. I am so goddamn sick of my upstairs neighbours, I can’t wait for these motherfuckers to move out. “The radio isn’t that loud” my ass. We’ve been listening to their radio since they moved in. Guess it’s time to stop trying to be polite about it and go straight to Del.

Reblog if it’s okay to start talking to you.
