All things considered, tapes are a better medium than the DVDs or the VCDs. With VHS at least they deteriorate steadily. With CDs, once they start skipping, they're never the same.

I like sticking as close as I can to a story's canon, because I feel like that's the way it should be done.

Meanwhile the other people in the fandom would go out of their way to butcher canon on the reg to fulfill something or another deep within them.

It tastes like some kind of water, and sometimes it might feel like poisoned water. It depends the brand of paint you are consuming. As a certified Paint Critic, I would recommend Nippon Paint of Japan, it's paints taste great.

Have you tried Dulux paint? don't really know if that's available in where you're from.

Well uhm, it's to be taken over by Nippon Paint, if you mean the Australian one. I meant this.

Planet Nine is pretty much confirmed via computer simulations. Two simulations were run, and the current solar system, including all those scattered disk objects with super inclined orbits, were only replicated when an object 5 times as massive as earth at distances over 500 au was included. Both simulations required a planet with the same characteristics.

It's Nibiru, the dark planet of pestilence. Humanity will never see it until they've sent the armada of plague and it's already too late.

I used one of these to calculate some math expressions and... well, it's certainly an interesting experience. I have not used one before other than just admiring them (I have a collection of 6 of them!).

And before you ask, no this is NOT a homework help... high chances that math homework nowadays do not involve using an antiquated (but still nice!) slide rule to do your math. :P
P4 has a careless mistake, because of course. 1.48e5, not 148e5.

That's nothing.

Every time a .psd file of mine gets corrupted either through a BSOD or power outage, its backup often times was weeks or at worst, months outdated, and that means that I have to start a new drawing in that file all over again.
