    A mouse got into my building's hallway and died right on my doorstep. I hope it's not the same mouse I went to such pains to get out of my bathroom and put on the lawn this morning. I'm probably going to cry later.

    Videos of people horrified at South Asian and Latino ways of cooking rice. There's more than one way to make rice and there's far more than one variety of the shit. Use the methods common with the standard Japanese rice on Thai sticky rice and I assure you you will destroy the rice entirely. And if you try to use that short grain shit and that style on Mexican rice? It's not coming out right. You need long grains and to crack the rice. You may also need to cook it longer while stirring occasionally to allow it to burn a bit on the bottom and build up this tasty crusty bit at the bottom.

    By claiming to be the rice police who knows the only true way of cooking rice you're just revealing how little you actually know about rice.

    Added to this is the stupidity of "rice cookers are just for lazy white people" shit. Which I have seen and it pains me.

    But also added to this is the frustration I have at being told that rice cookers are all you need for all kinds of rice.

    That post was making a surprisingly good showing on the "stupidest takes I've seen on Tumblr" charts, considering the copious competition.

    I am still so baffled it is a take I legitimately saw.

    scroll wheel on my mouse finally broke completely :P I got the thing at Goodwill like... 5 years ago so it's not a big surprise. I should probably wait until black Friday to get a new one...

    Very few print-on-demand T-shirt vendors have proper ranges of plus sizes.

    Wormwitch I'm literally Mulder.

    The woman at the front door of costco politely asked my father to pull his mask up over his nose and he responded by calling her a nazi. For fucks sake

    Posts with like half the text in bold where I'm sure they're doing it because some people find it more readable but it renders it so completely unreadable to me that I don't even bother.

    People messaging spoilers at me on tumblr because I made a jokey crack theory post months ago that turned out to be alarmingly accurate

    Petty and at least a little nonsensical but there needs to be more emojis that fit me as a person available. I want a rocking emoji, and a flappy hands emoji, and a covering ears/eyes emoji, and a toe walk emoji, and and and. I just want to express myself in a more personal way other than generic smileys and an oft used thumbs up

    I had the dumbest larping death of my life today. I was in a shield wall with someone, side by side, pretty much shoulder to shoulder. Someone started to cast heat weapon on his sword, so he hid it behind his back to break line of sight and stop the spell from working. When he hid it behind his back it crossed his back just far enough to tap me on the shoulder blade, killing me instantly. Friendly fire is on unless otherwise noted, and I was on my last life of the game.

    The worst part of it is, no one was doing anything wrong. That's how you form a shield wall to hold a position. That's how you stop someone from destroying your only weapon. The two just so happened to interact badly, and we lost the game because of it.

    The treating anime and manga and light novels as all the same thing. If you are going to talk about Tite Kubo's Bleach and the problems with Kubo's pacing then you MUST use Kubo's comic. Not the fucking anime adaptation. The pacing of the anime and the manga are so wildly divergent that like, even ignoring all the shit they add even to the canon arcs, it's just really not the same experience at all. It's the difference between shot gunning 16 glasses of wine in 5 seconds flat versus only taking a sip of your 17 gallon beer once every 16 days. Also like. When you've got creators like Naoko Takeuchi who were really fucking ambivalent towards the adaptations of their works in part due to how wildly they fucking varied. Maybe it's kind of really shit to like. Create a post about celebrating Takeuchi's art and not actually showing art she made but instead screencaps and promotional art from an adaptation of her art.

    Subtitle discourse. Just. Subtitle discourse. It has progressed to the point where I've seen people with ADHD and who have problems with subtitles because accused of lying about having ADHD because someone else with ADHD needs subtitles. And I sit there just waiting for the day to be told my inability to focus on things other than the written words on the screen due to my autism just being like being a sign that I'm fucking lying because everyone with autism's got the exact same variety of problems.

    One of my cowriters accidentally deleted a thirty-chapter fic right off AO3, and Hiveswap
    is wasting the potential of some characters I like.

    People arguing for things I agree with but like. With really bad misinformation in it. Especially when it is a case of someone admitting they're not certain in the post. Like if you're not certain don't fucking claim it? Look it the fuck up. Especially if it is something so easy as "What can I do without a subscription to Nintendo's online service?"
