Publishing PDFs on DriveThruRPG to have them sell for you is relatively painless, they just take a full-sized publisher's cut and let you go on through.

Really? Ouch. That's kind of bullshit for what little drivethru does to sell products. Bigger name stuff shows up in emails sometimes, and that's about it.

Ok, naming a character Medea for no apparent reason, I went with, particularly because I never had any interest in.... any of Tyler Perry's stuff.

But today, I saw this poster-

(or a version of it)

I looked it up, intrigued by the possibility that there was going to be a movie featuring Medusa, and...

It's some Tyler Perry thing, that has nothing to do with Medusa, so far as I can tell.

Why the hell does Tyler Perry use names from greek myth and a creature from it on a completely non-fantasy movie's poster?

Yeah, well, if it's good enough for Steam, it's good enough for DriveThruRPG.

Not sure what you mean. Steam incessantly tries to foist terrible indie shit on me.

Madea isn't from greek myth. The first vowel is an important distinction. Madea is a slurring of My Dear. (My Dear becomes Ma Dear becomes Madear becomes Madea).


As for Acrimony, well have you seen the trailer? It's a pretty good metaphor.

I lost some weight a bit too fast and I'm getting hanging skin everywhere. I don't suppose there's something I can do other than get it cut out, is there?

You can promote skin elasticity by drinking more water and eating more collagen and elastin: milk, beans, seeds, nuts, fish.

A better source of collagen and elastin is from soup made from meat bones. It's from connective tissue in animals, so the chance of it being in any of the foods you mention besides the fish is pretty much zero, and the fish is questionable because it's not like we eat a fish's connective tissues often.

Or just get a supplement.

The entire idea that collagen and elastin survive your stomach acids and digestive enzymes is absurd, no matter what food you eat to acquire them. Stuff you eat has to move into your blood to be useful to the body, so it needs to be degraded down from the molecules you would call collagen, which are huge.

And while you could argue that that would at least provide your body with the raw materials to make new collagen, the problem with skin flaps is not that you don't have enough collagen or elastin, nor is your body lacking the materials to make it's own collagen and elastin. Skin you have grown is skin you have grown - there is no bodily process that registers how tight your skin is and periodically removes extra cells, and subcutis isn't a coherent band under the skin that can somehow pull it tighter. I don't know how people imagine that would work, but if you can't tighten it by hand without removing some of it, how exactly would your body do that?


You'll need to have surgery done to get rid of these flaps, full stop.

My reading of the article was that this was based on peer-to-peer loans. Basically I go and ask people at this website to give me money for 'good reasons' and people that agree offer the money. Sort of like Kickstarter for loans... But I didn't look into it further.

Ah I see. It's weird, then, that only 13% default.

Also, since individual unsupervised humans are making decisions, bad study is bad - no control for if people who appealed to emotions defaulted more because more lenders were willing to lend to risky borrowers if the appeal was emotional enough out of charitable feelings.
