This is where people can come and talk about their waifus and their Chinese cartoons and all that other kind of weeb shit.
Every post is highly encouraged to include at least one picture of waifu and/or gif.

So some time ago my mom's credit card was stolen. There were numerous different charges made, some for Lyft, some for some online Chinese store and also one in Australia for some reason, but there was only one that really caught my attention.
It was a charge from the Detroit Property Tax Office. Huh. Apparently you can pay property tax in Detroit with a credit card. We all had a good laugh about that and how that person was almost surely going to be arrested once the charges were refuted.
Well apparently some time ago we also received a package that I didn't know about which my father promptly returned to the post office worker who was filling the mailboxes, and she assured us they would look into it.
Today we got that package back, with our address on it, with someone else's name. From some online retailer in Chengdu. Well, now that's interesting. It also has a phone number on it. A phone number with an area code for Macomb County, Michigan, which is just north of Detroit.
Now that's interesting. Looks like our little property-tax paying friend tried to order something and somehow fucked it up, because instead of putting in his own address, he put in ours. Tomorrow I'm going to contact our bank's fraud department and see if they pressed any charges against the person who used our card to pay their taxes.
Then I'll contact the Detroit Property Tax Office and the Macomb County Sheriff's Office, just seeing how much information I can get and if I can pin this guy down without needing a court order.
Now, Mr. Antonio Sanders, I don't know who you are, or what you've been through in life. I don't know why you're desperate enough to resort to buying stolen credit cards and identities to get by, and I'm sorry that you feel this is the only way you can make ends meet. You picked the wrong person, though. You picked the one with a son who is okay with a computer and currently very bored, and he's coming for you.
Star Wars is an American epic space opera media franchise, centered on a film series created by George Lucas. It depicts the adventures of various characters "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away".
And here's where we'll talk about that. Books, movies, comics, shows, other movies, spin-offs, games, non-canonical stuff. You name it, if there's a Jar Jar in it we'll talk about it.
Hey! Are you watching all the E3 press conferences? Whoa! Me too! We should totally talk about that here!
Hey! Are you not watching all the E3 press conferences? That's okay, I'll be live watching and telling you what is happening and who is announcing what and how nobody talks about Ace Combat 7 as much as they need to. Whoa dude! Crazy! E3!!!
I'll edit this post to include a brief summary of each presser after it happens. Except Nintendo. I probably won't watch that one. Too early.
EA----- 2PM Central
Microsoft------ 4PM Central
Bethesda------ 11PM Central
Ubisoft---- 3PM Central
Sony (BETTER FUCKING TALK ABOUT ACE COMBAT 7)------- 8PM Central
Nintendo------ 11AM Central (Why? Fucking nine in the morning?! Really?!?!)

Second time doing this post because one of the drawings had something I wanted to fix. That's always a process.
So I drew my avatar and also Lady Shinoa. I did both with dots for points of important stuff and everything. I colored Shinoa, first time ever for that. So that's a thing.
I've been totally hunched over for like three and a half hours at this point and my back really hurts really bad, so I'm going to go lie down now.

Done two days ago.Was done mostly tracing after I finally discovered the pencil tool is far superior to the pen. Turned out alrightish.
This was done today. Came out a bit darker. My Surface pen is pressure sensitive so that might have something to do with it or maybe not. I just typed that whole sentence and then realized that I might have accidentally turned the opacity down for comparison in the process of making the last one and not turned it back up before I took the screenshot. I don't know.
Anyway, this one was done with about the same amount of overall tracing, like the position of the chin, top of the hair, outside of the pony-tail and the top line of the arms. Mostly so I get everything somewhat right and proportioned. I've tried it without doing that and it does not turn out nearly as well. This time I did some more shading to try and make it look less bland. Yay.
By the way, this is what I'm drawing.
Baba Yetu, my friends, it is I, Shadow5435, the glorious Keeper of......... Keeper of........ Uh, the Keeper of.....
Alright, that part isn't important. What is important is the purpose of this thread, to establish a group to
incite a global revolution play a friendly game of Civilization together.
The game will take place of the course of several weeks with the same group of people. I will host the game and save the map, as well as coordinating each subsequent meeting, all of which will probably occur about the same time. I was thinking Friday nights, and either have a hard cut-off at a certain number of turns per session, or run for an amount of time.
--A living, breathing human being.
--Sid Meier's Civilization V on Steam.
--Brave New World Expansion Pack.
--Gods and Kings Expansion Pack.
--All of the additional Civilization packs (maybe).
--Wonders of the Ancient World pack.
--Basically all the DLC. Why don't you have them all? What are you doing? Buy them all.
--Skype and a microphone.
We could either do all random civs, or have people reserve their Civ here.

Missed my four years. That was two days ago.
I mean, four years!! Haha! I remembered! Yes! I am good at remembering things! Hooray me!
This is usually the part where I include gifs so that way the post looks like it's about something, even though we all know it isn't.
I really only have this one, though, for this time. So I guess we can just go with that. I also have one with penguins, but I don't think that one is quite up to snuff with a celebration that's THIS IMPORTANT, RIGHT?!?! HAHA, YEAH.... Penguins. Or pengwings, if you're that guy who couldn't say it right. Bendrict Cumbersteam? Something like that.
I made a whopping two journal posts in the last year. New record! Way to go, me!
I think that's about it. Now we'll do it three posts and a year later. I guess I can leave you with this picture of Yang that I found a few days ago that some kid on the internet drew. Pretty great. Like it a lot. Might use it for my avatar at some point. Oh I would. IF I WAS A FUCKING HERETIC.
There ya' go. See ya' in three-hundred-and-sixty-three days.

I burned myself with an aerosol can to figure out how cold it was with a temperature gun.
The answer is negative six degrees Fahrenheit.
You're welcome for that. But now I have a big red mark the size of my middle finger on the underside of my left arm. Hopefully this goes away eventually.
