From a post about misheard lyrics:
tag yourself I’m Dirt Stick
I'm vodorok pagina
I found this in the seasonal section while killing time in the pharmacy
OH MY GOD

Rose Quartz is believed to relieve tension and stress, improve circulation and promote the release of impurities in the body. It has also been used as an elixir to reduce wrinkles and promote smooth skin
What store was this? Asking for a friend.
'release impurities' is that the new way to say 'detox' now that that word is slowly (FINALLY, DEAR GOD) burning out?
Detox is going away? Thank fucking god
Undoubtedly it will only be replaced by something equally pseudoscience-y but at least that'll be novel
wow just @ me next time
I like how they say "is believed to." That way they're not even claiming it's what they believe.
This Greg Land abomination that just got posted on Escher Girls:
Spoiler: Extremely bad anatomy
They theorized she's turning into a stapler.
that gets worse the longer you look at it, and yet I can't look away
Do the splits reaaal hard.
At least the chest isn't like. Tiny. It almost seems too small, honestly.
The pose is substantially impractical, but probably possible. (Hey, it's Land, so it's probably traced.)
On the other hand, the *angle* is wrong. The left leg is faced away in like an L-shape, but the... surfboard? is straight.
If she had her other arm (where did it go???) on the invisible surfboard, it'd be an okay pose. I think he must have moved the reference pose's arm back behind her for the shot but didn't account for the fact that's the limb she'd be braced on.
My guess is he traced it from two women in different poses and cobbled it together and that's why she doesn't have a pelvis.
I can kind of see what he’s going for, but unfortunately what he’s going for is Bird afaict and humans just don’t balance that way
She looks like she is about to badly injure her ankle at any moment, or maybe just fall over, if those lines in the background indicate any momentum. Don’t turn your leg in and balance sexily on the ball of your foot while braking, kids. It’s not a very stable position.
I don’t think that position is exactly totally impossible? I can get into an approximation, though getting my knee up at the side of my chest and turning my foot in and arching it at the same time only really makes sense if I assume I’m trying not to slide sideways, towards the page if you’re looking at her. In that case, my other arm is bracing me, and it’s tucked in really tight behind my back leg. My problem with this is mostly her near shoulder tbh. If she’s in a situation where it makes sense to move her front leg into such a difficult, very tense position, why is her arm thrown casually back? It looks like spaghetti flopping around in her wake. Her shoulder should be much tighter or her leg should be way less tense. Maybe it’s not impossible, at least discounting the anatomy complications introduced by the side boob, but it seems extremely unlikely. And the proportions seem off.
If it was traced, I’m gonna guess the model was probably wearing heels.
Eta: Haha, actually this pose suddenly makes SO much more sense if you just postulate the existence of heels. Her front leg is no longer required to be ridiculously tense to get into that position, it’s a pretty natural direction for your ankle to slouch. It explains why on earth she’s balancing on the balls of both feet even though it doesn’t just look dumb, it looks thoroughly bizarre. It explains why she might need her other hand to be right behind her foot for best support even if she isn’t sliding to the side. And it probably even explains why the near arm is tossed decoratively behind her.
