My political views are so far left I’ve exited pursued by a bear
I can’t believe this theatre pun post was so relatable
This is so wholesome
Update: he finally got the cat to the vet to see if she had a microchip
I was already on board with his sweet wholesome open-to-love-and-nurturing heart but I was fully unprepared for getting to that last tweet and seeing how off the hook HOT dude is
https://twitter.com/pariszarcilla?lang=en heres his twitter is here there is also additonal cat photos of his children.
CAT DAD IS BACK
aww, the kids grow up so fast. ;-;
HHHHHHHH I LOVE CAT DAD!
This is, by far, the single most adorable fucking thing I have ever seen.
I love that he kept …. All of them.
I’ve reblogged the earlier part of this thread before, and the new stuff makes it even better.
This is the Tumblr equivalent of a warm hug on a cold day.
I remember this thread, but I never saw the grown-up pics ?
All hail Catdad
I saw Catdad for the first time today, and my day instantly became exponentially better.
CATDAD HAS REVIVED MY WILL TO LIVE
I live for cat dad-
Cat dad has saved us all
I had not seen the updates. I am so happy that the Cat Gods smiled upon this person and their new family :)
The tale continues into 2020!
The whole tale
I needed to know all their names so I just spent way to much time digging and I have results:
Here, left to right we have Mac, Ronin, Dobby, and Pancake.
And here’s their mum, Forever.
Also it turns out catdad is not only hot and heartwarming but also a great screenwriter and director AND painter, which is altogether unfair. Definitely recommend a follow having just scrolled through two years worth of tweets.
But most importantly, I’ll leave you with this:
A couple laptops ago, I was really trying to learn more about this stuff while looking to get new one for school. I ended up talking to the IT guys at my parent’s workplaces (both of them work at places that study and/or send stuff into space, so I trust what these guys had to say) and the main thing they drilled home was the importance of getting an SSD. And after experiencing the difference of laptops with SSD’s vs any of my old laptops, I completely understand why. My old laptops would usually get slower and slower after the first year of use; they would overheat and make upsetting jet engine noises just trying to cool down; they would get to a point where they crashed multiple times a day depending on the programs I tried to run (and all this dispite how often I cleared up file space).
Today, I still have an SSD laptop I got 6 years ago that still runs almost perfectly, and the only reason I upgraded was because I wanted one that was lighter with more file space. Go with SSDs y’all, it makes a difference.
I know this is a haha funny post, but for anyone who needs it, here’s a quick-and-dirty of what you’re most likely going to see while shopping for a computer/laptop (w/Examples)!
- Cores/Intel Cores (Ex. i3, i5, i9)= Processing Speed= how fast your internet and other programs run. More cores is better.
- Hard [Disk] Drive(HDD)/Solid State Drive(SSD) (Ex. 250GB, 480GB, 2TB)= How much you can store on your computer (files and apps and programs). A Terabyte(TB) is 1,000 Gigabytes.
*HDD is cheaper and more storage while SSD is faster, more durable, and uses less energy.
- Memory/RAM(Random Access Memory) (Ex. 4GB, 8GB, 16GB) = How many different things your computer can do At The Same Time.
Ex. A computer with 4GB of RAM will probably shit itself if you try to play a game with with the internet open.
Shopping for laptops fucking sucks ‘cause I don’t know shit about computers. I’ve never had a computer with a functional webcam or microphone or the ability to play computer games made later than 2005 or a speaker that could play anything loud enough to hear from more than a foot away. How the hell should I know what I want?!
wow that would be such useful advice if only desktop PCs were small and portable and did not require desk tops on which to place them and I could take them with me when I traveled
- Video/Graphics Cards (Ex. NVIDIA, Intel HD Graphics, AMD) = How much visual complexity your computer can handle without throwing a tantrum. Only important if you play video games, do digital art, or watch a lot of movies on your computer. (When you’re watching a video and it pixelates and lags when the action stuff happens, that’s a bad/small graphics card)
((Also they highly recommended gaming computers regardless of if I planned to play any games or not, because they were specifically designed to handle large programs quickly and efficiently. I know they’re expensive, but if you’re doing anything more than basic office work or scrolling through the internet, you can totally tell how much better they handle things. As someone who uses a lot of art/design/animation/rendering programs, having things work efficiently is super important.))
So much FUD goes into this computer shopping process. This is actually one of my video series ideas – demystifying the process of picking out a computer (or parts of one), as the number of people who make super expensive mistakes even while trying their best to do research is shameful.
Shameful on the part of laptop/desktop/component manufacturers, that is.

Concept: a D&D-style fantasy setting where humanity’s weird thing is that we’re the only sapient species that reproduces organically.
- Dwarves carve each other out of rock. In theory this can be managed alone, but in practice, few dwarves have mastered all of the necessary skills. Most commonly, it’s a collaborative effort by three to eight individuals. The new dwarf’s body is covered with runes that are in part a recounting of the crafters’ respective lineages, and in part an elaboration of the rights and duties of a member of dwarven society; each dwarf is thus a living legal argument establishing their own existence.
- Elves aren’t made, but educated. An elf who wishes to produce offspring selects an ordinary animal and begins teaching it, starting with house-breaking, and progressing through years of increasingly sophisticated lessons. By gradual degrees the animal in question develops reasoning, speech, tool use, and finally the ability to assume a humanoid form at will. Most elves are derived from terrestrial mammals, but there’s at least one community that favours octopuses and squid as its root stock.
- Goblins were created by alchemy as servants for an evil wizard, but immediately stole their own formula and rebelled. New goblins are brewed in big brass cauldrons full of exotic reagents; each village keeps a single cauldron in a central location, and emerging goblings are raised by the whole community, with no concept of parentage or lineage. Sometimes they like to add stuff to the goblin soup just to see what happens – there are a lot of weird goblins.
- Halflings reproduce via tall tales. Making up fanciful stories about the adventures of fictitious cousins is halfling culture’s main amusement; if a given individual’s story is passed around and elaborated upon by enough people, a halfling answering to that individual’s description just shows up one day. They won’t necessarily possess any truly outlandish abilities that have been attributed to them – mostly you get the sort of person of whom the stories could be plausible exaggerations.
To address the obvious question, yes, this means that dwarves have no cultural notion of childhood, at least not one that humans would recognise as such. Elves and goblins do, though it’s kind of a weird childhood in the case of elves, while with halflings it’s a toss-up; mostly they instantiate as the equivalent of a human 12–14-year-old, and are promptly adopted by a loose affiliation of self-appointed aunts and uncles, though there are outliers in either direction.
What about orcs?
The so-called goblinoid peoples are variations on the same formula, and may well emerge from the same cauldron, depending on who’s been screwing with the ingredients lately. They’re very morphologically plastic – it’s not unheard-of to encounter a kobold and an ogre who count each other as siblings.
Other fantasy races: “You ever hear about how humans reproduce? ?”
It really depends on the folks in question. Elves are of course familiar with sexual reproduction, since that’s how the animals they upllift themselves from do it – though most of them would prefer to keep that end of the business at arm’s length – and goblins know all about emerging into the world naked, screaming, and covered in noisome ichor; they just think the human way of doing it sounds awfully hard on the mom!
Anyway, noodling around with questions in the notes about “crossbreeding”:
- The process of creating a dwarf requires that a majority of the contributing craftspeople be dwarves, or else it just doesn’t work, but otherwise there’s no particular rule against including non-dwarves. There’s a fair amount of leeway both in fashioning a dwarf’s physical form and in composing the documents inscribed upon its skin, so cross-species “parentage” is really about incorporating non-dwarven artistic and philosophical influences.
- Elfhood is a matter of acculturation, so in principle anybody can become one. In practice, the learning process is considerably more difficult and time-consuming for creatures who already have their own sapience and culture, so conversion to elfhood is uncommon outside of cases like human fosterlings raised by elves, or a non-elf becoming an elf’s spouse. Such individuals may not be fully accepted in certain communities; “half-elf” is one of the politer pejoratives they’re saddled with.
- You can make goblins that display “inherited” traits by using pieces of flesh as alchemical ingredients, but doing so with the flesh of other sapients is strongly frowned on. Using the flesh of animals to incorporate selected traits into the next generation is far more accepted, and in fact, some goblin communities do so strategically to meet local needs; for example, you can totally get a batch of arboreal goblins by just chucking a whole fucking squirrel into the pot.
I love the postulate that goblins are nice and wouldn’t be chucking whole live adventurers into the soup pot.
Hey, I said it was frowned on, not that it never happens!
(Besides, even in those communities that lack a taboo against eating things that talk, stuffing a whole adventurer into the cauldron isn’t a great idea because it would introduce too many volatile and potentially conflicting humours. Like, do you want the Grand Soupsmith to kick your ass?)
Anyway, by popular demand:
- Gnomes, like many creatures of the earth,
arise spontaneously when the proper conditions are met. Such conditions may occur naturally, but are more often arranged by other gnomes. At first tightly
to their homes, gnomes can range further afield as they grow, with the passage to adulthood marked by the ability to “re-home” to a suitable dwelling with a simple ritual. As gnomes’ homes strongly influence their owners’ nature, most gnomes are very particular about their housekeeping!
Boring fact about me: I don’t eat red meat very often
@poetic-fiasco thank you for tagging me xo much love
Boring fact about me: I sleep with a weighted blanket and it’s amazing.
I eat bananas because they’re quick to eat
I love soft things. Blankets, pillows, fuzzy sweaters, slippers etc. ?
If it’s just for me, I make and drink weak coffee.
I don’t care as much about the taste of foods as I do the texture and have a really hard time separating mouth-feel from taste.
Did You Know: There are usually four different spouse reactions types to houses you can live in; Arrogant, Neutral, Nord, or Orc? The reactions for a player-built house, for example:
Arrogant: “Fine, when we’re not fending off attacks by wolves. Or bears. Or giant spiders. Honestly, what were you thinking, sending us out here?”
Neutral: “Fine, love. I think the fresh air does wonders for all of us, and this house… it’s just perfect.”
Nord: “Fine, fine. Living out here on our own will take some getting used to, but I think it’ll be good for us.”
Orc: “Better than ever. Nothing like living off the land to teach you how to fight, how to survive. We’ll have a little warrior on our hands in no time.”
Once again, Orcs prove to be the superior option.
non-orcs: the house you built for me with your own hands is fine… I guess…
orcs: this place is awesome but it’s gonna be even better once we’ve fucked on every horizontal surface
…just the horizontal surfaces? I thought you were an adventurer?
I used to be an adventurer like you, until orc sex made me take an arrow to the knee?
My character is optimized. Not at all for combat, but for one specific roleplay scenario.
