    garlic toad
  • Darkness is ever the herald of dawn.
    Pelobates fuscus.
  • huh, I hadn't heard of that toad before.
  • yes Garlic toad
  • Darkness is ever the herald of dawn.
    The Garlic toad makes a garlic-smelling scent when it senses danger, thus its name.

    I haven't done any experiments, but I bet it works as well as regular garlic against vampires.

    If not, it's a neat example of an anti-vampire survival mechanism.
  • Garlic toad needs to be a sub-weapon in a Castlevania game
  • Darkness is ever the herald of dawn.
    Maybe an item that fits into small spaces and retrieves stuff, like the thing in Metroid where you turn into a ball and fit into tubes and stuff?  I don't know, I've never played Castlevania.
  • the morph ball? sure
  • you *can* transform into a toad in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, so...
  • Oh yeah

    But it's not garlic
  • Darkness is ever the herald of dawn.
    If you could turn into a Garlic Toad then the game would be way too easy.  All those baddies wouldn't stand a chance.

    Why do you think we practically never see those baddies in real life?
  • Garlic toad is OP

    I never really interacted much with Corporal Forsythe, as his time here was mostly before my own.  I like to think that we could have been friends, if things had happened differently.  Perhaps it's best not to write too much more about stuff I have practically no context on, though.

    I hesitated for a long time on banning Forsythe, because I worried that banning the one prominent conservative voice on the forum risked turning it into an echo chamber where our political views went unchallenged, but...I learned my lesson once I realized the extent to which conservative politics, at least in the American sense, are fundamentally built on hate and white supremacy.

    Which is to say, I think I made the right decision, in the end, which is more than I can say for a lot of other moderation decisions I made on here.

    There was a point in my life when I wanted to become a moderator in every online community I participated in, not because I thought I would be a great asset to the community, and not even because of a raw lust for power, but because I wanted to be privy to the behind-the-scenes gossip that I assumed must be happening in the moderator-only spaces.

    Nowadays, honestly, I would be content to never have to moderate an online community again for as long as I live...and when I want to gossip about whatever's going on in our wider community, I just go to one of my tiny private Discord servers and gossip with my other friends. We're probably all better off this way.
  • the Corporal was fine as long as he wasn't talking about politics

    but, he wanted to make everything about politics

    @PrincessAlice: I'm conservative, though.  Then again, I'm not much of a prominent voice in that regard.

    @ImipolexG:  That is a common problem among people who post on the internet.
  • I identify as a conservative, at least philosophically, even though my political positions more frequently align with liberals/progressives.

    (The reasoning is complicated, but it has something to do with me favoring incrementalism with a consideration for preserving elements of the past.  I also frequently prefer non-"normative" justifications for liberal policy positions, such as using cost-benefit justifications for environmental policy positions.  I used to be more conservative on social/moral issues but I've grown more small-L libertarian in this regard as I've grown up.)

    Anyhow, I guess it's still a truth of the internet -- those who aren't mods want to be mods; those who are mods don't want to be mods.
  • You know, it's annoying to wake up hungry and realize you're out of stuff to eat for breakfast.

    It's even more annoying because it's my birthday and I feel that a great birthday present my past self could have given me was to not eat all the breakfast food.

    But the worst part is that one of the things I finished off yesterday was a box of "birthday cake" flavoured cereal.

    Oh hey, we have birthdays less than a week apart.

    Happy birthday! I hope you get the breakfast situation sorted!!
  • Happy birthday
  • Darkness is ever the herald of dawn.
    Happy birthday, both of you.
