    Someone once pointed out to me that "we're not like Disney animals, because in Disney movies they're just talking animals whereas furries are metaphors for humans".

    Which is wrong, but the fact that this line of thought didn't immediately set off said furry's internal spellcheck means the assertion does tell me something interesting.

    That’s a pretty highbrow way of insulting someone. I love it

    This is something that always confused me. Goofy is a dog, Pluto is a dog yet one can talk and the other is reduced to being Mickey's pet.

    I guess not all animals are born equal after all...

    Not to mention that Goofy’s love interest is a cow

    My guess is that Goofy was created to be Mickey's friend, and when it was time to give Mickey a pet, the fact Goofy is a dog went under the radar because he walks on two legs.

    If that doesn't satisfy you, let's ask Nomura. He'll come up with a reason and include it in KH4.

    Construction work is happening in my house. It's impossible to focus on anything or work on anything. I can't even go outside to escape it because I can't take a shower. This is the worst.

    You could always put on a little show for them with the garden hose if you’re feeling cute

    Or, you can join the hobos in the local fountain. If you do this, be sure to act a little “deranged” so that when the police inevitably catch you they’ll just chase you off instead of arresting you

    Modern news has so little… “news” in it. And, when there actually is some, the news companies always try to put some sort of a political spin on it. Nothing is neutral. Facts are buried by an opinion-heavy writing format filled to the brim with pathos and logical fallacies. Very often you will see stories where the authors try to make a huge deal over something minor and relatively unimportant. I have to go to ten different news sites to piece together what’s actually going on, and every single story is missing details or adding opinions to skew the story one way or another. It is very, VERY annoying.

    Ok but shepherds and sheep have had a special relationship loooong before tv, radio, or even moving type were invented.

    Which is why I only read a newspaper I vehemently disagree with. Really trains you to parse out bullshit. Not because it's the only newspaper the rich owners approve of because of it's "fuck taxes, the poor are scary" bent.

    They even criticized the conservative leader today, before launching into some q-anon conspiracy theory that the prime minister sexually assulted high school girls. Which they preceded with it being an unfounded impossible to prove rumour, then launch into ten paragraphs about it.

    We will never again have a cheerful message that "there is no news today" followed by a little ditty. Makes me sad.

    Here are a few particularly revealing ones from the American press, ca. 1870-1920:

    https://database.goddard.microsearch...=(select+1627)

    https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/l...ain+Cuba+Queen

    https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/l...arRange&page=1

    If you can figure out the political slants to these newspapers, you might be qualified enough to take a 1st year university History course. "Modern" has little to do with the absolute critical poverty of most journalism. As Mark Twain said around the same time as these articles, "That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse." There is nothing new under the sun etc etc.

    Woah, Battle of Bull Run article o_o
    Although it should be obvious, I guess, I'm realizing now how good a resource these free archives would be to writing alike previous modes/outdated dialects of colloquial english.
