Sakura-Con 2014: Day 1 Part 1

I tried to upload this once before but the images were too large and it got stuck in Tumblr’s craw. Anyhow, I don’t know the tumblrs of anyone here (please let me know if these are you or someone you know) and that Doc Scratch is a puppet, not a small wheeled cosplayer (I was not the first person to stare at it trying to figure this out, I think, since the cosplayers with the puppet shared this information unprompted).

Skeletons do not need to be oiled


A potential customer came into today to discuss animated skeletons with our necrosales force. Clearly a new villain, freshly minted and untried, he wanted to talk about the differences between having live minions versus an army of skeletons.

Animated skeletons are a common entry-level necromantic purchase. Relatively inexpensive and requiring significantly less maintenance than ghosts, they help build the skills necessary for junior evil.

"But do they need to be oiled? They make that horrendous creaking noise," he asked. A common question.

No, skeletons do not need to be oiled. Their infernal power source enables them to move without lubrication.

Once you’ve finished building your undead army of horrors, pick up our Build Skeleton Army evil merit badge.






A Urine Powered Generator. An amazing accomplishment by four brilliant girls. The girls are are Duro-Aina Adebola (14), Akindele Abiola (14), Faleke Oluwatoyin (14) and Bello Eniola (15).
  • 1 Liter of urine gives you 6 hours of electricity.

  • The system works like this:

    • Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen.
    • The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder.
    • The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas.
    • This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator.

This is amazing. Give them a billion dollars right now. They may have just saved the planet. 

folks are doing a PISS poor job of reblogging this.

awesome news….bad pun.




Everybody knows the pain of shopping for a decent pair of jeans, and the even greater pain of losing a really good pair to a hole in the crotch.  Sewing torn denim back together is not a thing that nature intended, because the world is a dark, cruel place.

But I wasn’t gonna stand for that! I’m playing God, I thought. I’m fixing these jeans, and the laws of nature can go fuck themselves. And then it worked.  Here’s how to do it:

  1. Buy some Shoe Goo from your local CVS or something.  It’s pretty cheap and you can glue basically anything with it.  I glue the soles of my shoes back on with this stuff.
  2. Sacrifice some mistake jeans to make a patch, and glue that patch to the inside of your jeans.  Glue it down real good.  Do this in a well-ventilated area because Shoe Goo is toxic stuff until it dries.
  3. Let it cure for 24 hours, and then put your jeans back on and flip God the bird, because you have just performed a miracle.  You have saved your favorite jeans from certain garbage-canning.

One tube of glue is enough to save a lot of jeans, plus some shoes on the side.  The patch holds up pretty well in the washer/dryer, and is only a little stiffer than two layers of denim would be anyway.  Boom.

i threw out a pair of jeans that had worn through right on the butt and to this day i’m still sad

I knew I kept my favourite, tragically crotch-ventilated black jeans around for a year for a reason (and the reason was not ‘wearing leggings under them’)

What do you know about the Relickers' backstory?


Their backstories are, for the most part, fairly clear. Sort of. A bit. Maybe. They aren’t staggeringly huge mysteries… mostly.

it’s a metaphor

The best part is that the crab is the symbol for the zodiac sign Cancer, so in a way even the crab itself is a metaphor

Well, the crab is the symbol for Cancer because cancer literally means crab. The condition is called ‘cancer’ because ancient Greeks decided that people with cancer looked like they were being attacked by crabs.

Language is weird.

I read somewhere once that they attempted to cure people of cancer by tying a crab over the site of the tumour and then sacrificing it. Or maybe I dreamt that. Who knows. I haven’t had coffee yet.
