If it's too low, take it somewhere else and have some other appraisals made. Sometimes you get a better offer.

When I was looking to sell my Hakumobile, the first appraisal put it at $5000. I took it somewhere else and they gave me $6500 for it.

sad thing is that i did. i did get a higher offer, too, but not by a lot.

sadder thing is that everyone acknowledges that its a mechanically sound car but because it has cosmetic damage, it lowers the demand considerably. I've been told I can get more money selling privately, which is true, but, selling privately is a bit of a no-go for several reasons.

and either way parting with it is v. upsetting.

I'm half-sure this latest game was a sort of experiment to see how people liked the new way they've done interactive sex scenes. Instead of clicking on a position/using arrow for speed it's all done seamlessly with mouse movement.

Not knowing Japanese makes me want to die tbh.
TypeMoon is the only reason I live and I can't read it.

But learning Japanese sucks. It's fun at the beginning, since you feel like you're actually learning stuff. But then after endless Anki repetitions and you reach a point where you're like "i knew that fucking word yesterday why don't i know it anymore" and then again until you say fuck me and stop it because it makes you hate yourself.

Grammar is also bad because I reached a point where I'm like "okay, now what" and then you try to read stuff and you're like "what the fuck is that even" so you try to practice grammar but in the end you just reread the same grammar rules you already know and it doesn't help because obviously.

And in the end, why even do this because I hate it and will never get any further anyway because I have no idea what I'm doing anymore.
And then you play Hearthstone but keep losing because you also fucking suck at Hearthstone. You're not even good at video games even though you waste your life away playing them, that's embarrassing, you're just not good at anything in life honestly.
And then you rant about it on the some stupid forum because fuck you, I stopped giving a shit a long time ago. Why be good at anything when you can have fun fantasizing about if anime and anime girls were real.

Also, there are affection, erm, thresholds, when you match a bunch of the same shapes. Which in this case are that individual girl's heads. So right now I've just been aiming for the pink-haired girl. Unintentionally. Was going for the loli character, but eh; the amazoness with the massive knockers is fine too.

And I can't semi-colon.

Also Amazoness-chan is the big sister personality, as one might expect (w/ ara ara).

Loli is deadpan.

Shota protag's real sister is the ara ara dominatrix type.

Uh. Let's see... gyaru girl is gyaru girl. She's pretty cool. Also, her little bejeweled head is a solid blonde but her in-game appearance is strawberry. Pick a color dammit.

There's white haired spiky hair tomboy who's all tough on the outside but a shy and sweet girl on the inside, or something. I dunno. I actually haven't seen her yet. Only in preview images. Or maybe I'm tripping and there really is no such character.

Oh and there's the obligatory random English speaking character. She has aqua hair.

And I put English instead of Engrish because, well, her pronunciation is really good.

They were originally going to get rid of Hamilton on the $10, but because of the popular outcry against the change they made it so Harriet Tubman is on the $20 instead.

Why do you have to have an issue with this? Something that makes people interested in something on a popular level is not bad. This kind of vehicle for storytelling isn't literary, but it's important because it places a very common vernacular kind of telling of a story before people. Now some kid who didn't know knows.

kardashians arent considered all-american girls, they're considered exotic and alluring

it's actually a different cultural thing

Well I for one am glad that the media here prefers to show the "american girl" as a blonde bombshell

aren't they all american born

american born has nothing to do with it

you seem to be under the mistaken impression that cultural narratives and cultural realities are the same thing, and they are not.

"all-american" is a concept unto itself that generally refers to things like apple pie and wholesome blue eyed, leggy blondes.

I mean don't get me wrong, I'm in no way anti-blonde bombshell, just the weird anime stereotype of Americans mostly consisting of such

again, we're talking about cultural narratives, not cultural realities.

the international community has these kinds of impressions because our own media promotes certain beauty ideals as 'standard' or 'default' or 'basic model'. it's not because it's true, its because it's an image cultivated over time.

these things being facts does not mean I can't be annoyed by them?

most natural blonde-haired blue-eyed people are white or appear to be white

not all, but like, the vast majority.
