    The "light" part refers to their thematology, not their size, anyway.

Up to 800-900 for later installments of more popular series (Dresden Files again). Even the last Harry Potter book only went up to what, 1200?

    EDIT: Not even that, I vastly overestimated it (then again, my copy was hardcover and felt like it weighed a ton): The Deathly Hallows was apparently only ~600 pages long. Dresden Files' Battle Grounds was only 400~.

    I was wondering if the ones I was reading were a exception, but that makes sense.

    Alright, controller arrived yesterday and I've suitably put it through the paces by marathoning the last 20 stages of DMCV (I may or may not have pulled an all-nighter). Final verdict: controller's solid, the buttons respond appropriately, the triggers are sensitive, and the D-pad is unique in having four contacts instead of one, which seems to give it a bit extra sensitivity (can't tell yet how that affects the ability to DP or fireball or other fighting game motions). Nothing fancy, but then, you get what you pay for.

    Of course, the real tests I'm interested in are the test of time and/or resistance to fall-on-floor-y damage, which can't be completed overnight. Time will tell, I suppose.

    So when I went to the liquor store today I decided to grab something new, and grabbed a couple different flavoured vodka's. Cracked open the Watermelon-Mint one today and damn does it smell perfect, but the minute it touched my lips all the flavour I smelled disappeared leaving behind nothing but bland vodka taste. I've resorted to using it as a mixer, which is disappointing since I could have just picked up a Mio at the grocery store, added it to the booze and gotten a better result. I hope the blueberry turns out better, but at this point I'm not holding my breath.

    So I don't know if anyone watched the Eurovision Song Contest this year or cares about it in general (tbh I wouldn't have either under normal circumstances) but the winning song has an opening riff ripped straight out of Bad Apple and I can't get over that

    Why would you subject yourself to Eurovision? I know this might sound strange considering what site we're on but don't value your time at all?

    Turns out the Blueberry one was much, much better. It's always good to have some variety in choice so you don't get sick of the go-to. Keeps things fresh and interesting.

    Hey there.

    Have you ever heard a Western song that you thought, aside from the language, sounded like it might've been a Slayers OP?

    I believe it was called the 80's.

    It's actually odd that as much I absolutely love Slayers, I couldn't actually think of what any of the OP's sounded like and had to youtube them.

    True, but I don't have the depth of knowledge to choose a good one. Best I can think of is "The Warrior" by Scandal, and its tempo seems too slow to me.

    Edit: I'm not sure if it's the fact that Hayashibara Megumi actually sings syllables at a faster rate on the Slayers tracks than they would be in most Western songs, or it just seems that way to me because I can't understand Japanese.

    Nothing that requires that level of anesthesia is ever a good thing.

    i had my impacted wisdom tooth extracted in mandible, so i needed mandibular nerve anesthesia

    quite difficult extraction, it was impacted horizontally + the root apex was kinda close to the inferior alveolar nerve canal

    interesting experience

    They just put me completely under for my wisdom teeth, because apparently my jaw is too compact for them to do it normally. The half hour after I came out of the ER is still a bit of a fever dream. They ended up nicking a nerve along the way and there's still a portion of my lip that lacks feel, 3+ years later.


    Aside: Have you ever looked at your counter and thought to yourself "Have I really drank that much alcohol tonight?". Apparently watching 10 year old game remake twitch streams does me in harder than weekly anime. Who would have guessed?

    Just nothing to really do for it, other than attempting an even more invasive surgery where something else has the chance of being nicked.
