Fun fact: American alligators are well-known for their odd vocalizations, but the most commonly known one- a low, rumbling bellow, with mouth mostly or entirely closed- is basically their equivalent of a greeting, announcing their location, gender, and size to other alligators.

Any of you that want a present card in this year's thread, reply to this with a short likes/dislikes post. I finished the obligatory one-per-member cards a lot earlier than I expected to.

As a guy who has played primarily as Yoshi in every Smash game for . . . going on 18 years now . . . it feels so good to have received such huge buffs between games. Like, holy hell, I can recover from anything, it's kinda stupid.

    It might be engine changes around him, but he feels so nimble and solid onstage, and I've yet to be punished offstage; recovery is almost N64 levels of free, back when his flutter had super armor.

    The eggs bouncing onstage also means that I can nail someone with proper prediction and pressure who could easily have gotten away in Sm4sh, and the aerials feel meatier. Also, it might have just been a whiff that was close, but I think I got hit with a Belmont whip while egg rolling and just . . . ignored it.

Okay, so if an archetype had a Continuous card that searched OPT when a card got shuffled into your Deck from outside it, what would be the best tech cards to trigger it? Destrudo and Madolches come to mind, maybe Baobaboon . . .

You know, when I Googled art for Zinnia from Pokémon, I was expecting a few random images of Pokémon, maybe some of actual zinnias (they're rather nice flowers, actually), maybe a cosplay or two mixed in. What I did not expect to see was all the R34. Like, within the first 100 results, and a surprising amount of it. Why, Internet? There were more uncomfortable fanart pictures than there reasonably should be.

    I don’t know what you’re searching, but I get drastically different results, some of which is May ship art.

I'm casually spectating a match, and one guy has Jinzo out and a Set Torrential, and the other controls Gameciel, Kyotou Waterfront (4 counters), and Remove Brainwashing. Gameciel guy tries to out Jinzo with Jizukiru, Jinzo guy tries to activate Torrential on-Summon, and Kaiju dude tries to negate with Gameciel. Jinzo guy calls judge. The judge is seriously trying to say that Gameciel can't negate in this scenario, because the turtle is about to be destroyed by the Kaiju one at a time rule conflicting with Remove Brainwashing. What.

    More importantly, why are they playing Torrential Tribute and Kinzo in the same deck?!?!

    But... there aren’t two Kaijus on the same side of the field yet. Also, wouldn’t Jizukiru be destroyed, not Gameciel?

So, I know it was a ten-second joke in a Rata video not even about them, but what is the thematic reason for Trickstar burn effects? Most other archetypes with a defined gimmick have some sort of reason for that gimmick, in terms of lore, theming, or even as a reference; Gladiator Beasts tag out, Karakuris wind down, Ghostricks scare other monsters, SPYRAL effects go off when they can successfully get their information . . . why do idol girls burn your opponent to death?

    It plays into the trickster theme, winning through unconventional means.

If a show can't hook me in 3 episodes, I drop it. I've probably missed so many shows that put their "bomb" episode (that changes the series and makes it more interesting to watch) after episode 3, but tbh I think the third episode is the best place to put it in single or double-season runs.

    Yeah, that's usually about how far I go as well. If Madoka Magica has taught me anything, it's that three episodes are key.

    I think that is actually an industry standard. Like, it is very deliberate that Madoka drops its bomb on episode 3. Bakuman also has the rule of 3 for when they pitch manga chapters so I'd assume that is true irl.

    Part 4 was removed entirely, and if you're lucky some different account reuploaded it. But the video is flipped horizontally.

    Parts 7-11 had to be reuploaded all nightcore'd out due to copyright, and are basically unwatchable.

    I don't know how many random songs I've stumbled on, liked, and then lost, because they were deleted.

So, in case no one has seen it, there's this ad floating around certain websites selling custom socks, and the auto-generated text it puts on the soles of those socks is drawn from your search history. Problem for that ad is that I spent a few hours trying to figure out a song's title using snippets from its lyrics, meaning that it put together a horrible mishmash of out-of-order song lyrics on the socks it was selling.
