Thank you for the fine art & writing ( Just finished reading almost all of your stories, just the last one left for me !), it's nice to see someone trying to keep Neltharion's legacy going on after Blizzard just shrugged him off. Here's to more Nel!

The Stupid Virus

Sat Nov 22, 2014, 11:34 PM
Wow, this is something.

So apparently, there is a virus that hinders the cognitive functions. It actually makes the IQ lower by ten points or so.

So stupidity is actually contagious, say scientists.  

A large group of scientists from both Johns Hopkins University and the University of Nebraska examined microorganisms that populate our "mucosal surfaces."

A surprise discovery was that the ATCV-1 virus -- which comes from algae -- seemed to affect human cognition. Previously, it had been thought that humans weren't prone to being infected by this virus. However, in taking throat swabs from 92 people, the researchers found 40 of them had the virus.

The research report says: "The presence of ATCV-1 DNA was not associated with demographic variables but was associated with a modest but statistically significant decrease in the performance on cognitive assessments of visual processing and visual motor speed." The decrease was around 10 percent.

The scientists tested this result by injecting mice with the same virus. They say the results were similar.

When they found the virus, the scientists weren't sure what it was. They discovered it had previously been found in green algae which inhabit rivers and lakes.

But if such a high proportion of the guinea pigs in this study had the virus, what if 40 percent of the world is also adorned by it? Might this explain some of the more macro aspects of human behavior, such as voting patterns, fast-food worship and Prius-driving?

Moreover, how easy is it to catch the virus and suddenly lose a promotion, a spouse or one's way home?

The University of Nebraska's Professor James L. Van Etten, a member of the research team, told Newsweek that currently there was no indication this virus was contagious.


The Stupid Virus


So, yeah, we now know that stupidity is a virus.  REALLY!  I always knew stupidity was infectious, I just didn't know it was scientifically proven.  Well, I'm guessing Patient Zero lives in Florida somewhere.  All the more reason to do this...

Teenagers Today Don't Know A Thing

Sat Nov 22, 2014, 12:04 PM
Ran across this again from someone who wanted to make excuses for his "ignorance of the online rules." Especially when it comes to art theft.

"But I'm only 15!"

Dude, you really should know better.  Is being 15 mean that you're a kindergartener?  Because "I'm only-" is what I expect a 5-year old to say.  

I hate sounding old, because I do have a good clear memory of my teenage years, rather than the actual old people who make this argument...

Bt when I was his age, I was expected not to make excuses for not knowing the rules of an establishment.  Usually, I had some common sense.  Hell, when I first joined an actual message board, I at least read the rules FIRST before I started posting.

When I first came to DA, I knew what this place was.  And I actually did read the rules.  Hell, I'm still reading them now when it comes to their changes.  

I pretty much suggest this to a lot of people, please just take the time and read the rules.

And also, on an art site, if it doesn't belong to you, then do not post it.  That's common sense.  You wanna share someone's images in a journal, then use Photobucket.  That's what I do.  

And I like the idea when if someone posts something that you did from DA in a journal on DA, you get a notice stating that you have been mentioned.  Meaning people can come and visit your artwork.  That is awesome.

Remember, please, if it is not yours, do not post it on an art site, making people think it is yours.  

If you're wondering what he stole, it was this...

Concerning Anduin x Wrathion

Fri Nov 21, 2014, 9:27 PM
I know someone is going to ask me if this will ever happen in the Pandaria stories.  The answer is, no.  Like fuck no.  

It's a character derailment.

The Wrathion x Anduin pairing makes no sense at all given the characters: they're much more interesting with the contentious, rather sarcastic friendship they have going, and forcing them together massively breaks their characters and makes no sense from a story perspective. I mean, Anduin even explicitly states that he doesn't trust Wrathion, and with good reason.

So, there will be none of that happening.  But I may do more Wrathion and Neltharion images, because there needs to be more of these, and not images that just depict Wrathion standin in the shadow of Deathwing...or something.  I want him interacting with his dad.

I come back from the abyss and man you have a lot of stories done. I seem to have a lot of work ahead of me.

So out of complete curiosity, are you still dealing with that Mark guy?

um...not really.  Okay, something you need to know.  I no longer pay attention to what he does.  Therefore, no, I am no longer dealing with him.  I don't know what he does nor do I show interest unless someone decides to point out if he's being a little bitch.

Is he being a little bitch?

As far as I've seen, no.
Felt like asking because I read about him on ED.
What a history you two have.

Yeah, that was made two years ago and updated a year and a half ago.  Roughly.  Trust me when I say if someone lets me know he's being a little bitch, I tend to notify people through a journal that they need to watch out for him.

Since he hasn't been a little bitch lately to any of my friends here or anyone else for that matter...I pretty much chalk it up to my prayers being answered that he finally either got his Internet taken away, or that there is a God and he at last smote Mark out of frustration.  

Either way, Mark has been very silent and I prefer it that way.  And since he's not being a little bitch, I prefer it that I just no longer agree that he exists in any form.  So, I really don't see the point of asking me about him other than to again remind me he exists.

I mean, is this related to what I'm working on?  While I don't mind other people writing stories about Nel being saved, it just sounds like it's more going off what I already written and speculated about.

Has this guy ever read any of the stories I've written?
