"Grandma played solo-mid every time"
History of the RegentThe “regent” pompadour has been the go-to hairstyle for Japanese delinquents for more than eight decades. W. David Marx looks at how the infamous coiffure got its pseudo-English name and morphed from slick imitation of British royalty to fluffy blond biker parody.Full Article

Chakan: The Forever Man (Sega - Genesis - 1992)
Chameleos bow is a cute magic wand and grimoire…..
the dark aka the dark soul aka humanity and the very concept of the abyss itself (if you interpret beatrice as being meant to use the, at the time nonexistent, dark magic based on her character design art heavily suggesting it) wasn’t actually inherently evil
it was just fucking made out to be evil by god propaganda to keep the humans from rising. kind of like witches. every time something related to it ended up fucking up it was held as a sign of being an inherent evil while the powers of the gods, who were actually legit evil monarch fucks, were held as inherently good despite evil fuckers often having more access to it than they could ever have to the dark
(note the obvious dark shit coming out of her staff. we must ask: how did she get into the abyss if you have the covenant of artorias?)
we see evil fuckers use the dark and humanity. funnily enough, they seemed to mostly be higher-up assholes before they tried to abuse it. they were kings, they were knights. they were already fucking assholes. meanwhile, we have a witch coded as being meant to use dark-type stuff who is incredibly helpful every time you meet her. it’s almost like…the dark is just a force of humanity’s potential! and not literally evil like dark souls 2 pretends it is!
this may be nonsensical but it is hard to make coherent points in this tiny fucking tumblr text entry box
one of the unused models in the game was for a lil’ beatrice
and she’s located within the game files close to a prototype version of Epic 4chan Man Chester so it seems like a decent bet she might have been planned to have a presence in the (abyss and dark-centric) DLC before being cut. witches are Strong
I dunno, I don’t really see how the Abyss itself is anything but a destructive force. I don’t really have a firm understanding of what happened at Oolacile though so maybe there’s something I’m missing there. Other than that, yeah fuck gods up with witches/humanity.
Next-Generation Space Capsule To Endure First Flight Test
On Dec. 4, NASA will launch the Orion capsule on its first space flight aboard the Delta IV Heavy rocket. The vehicle, which is expected to one day carry astronauts to an asteroid and Mars, will perform its first mission unmanned. It is being loaded up with radiation, heat and acceleration sensors, among numerous other instruments, to perform a fact-finding test flight for future exploration.
The four-and-a-half-hour trip will make two orbits around Earth and also test safety systems that will be critical to keeping astronauts alive and comfortable. Orion will go as far as 3,600 miles above Earth to pass through the Van Allen Belt, an area of high radiation levels, to test shielding designed to protect humans from harmful charged particles as they venture deeper into space.

The video gives a really good insight into the flight plan and goals of EFT-1.
