Man, I feel ya. It's one thing when the artist isn't a master of his pencil, or it's like a five second skit that's whipped up in five seconds, it's another when the thing you are drawing is purposefully butchered for the sake of your art style.
Useless fact: Modern art becomes increasingly complicatedly simple for no apparent reason. Your square that doesn't seem to have any sort of context or purpose now apparently can be hippie rainbows, and it's suddenly much more interesting, according to critics that like to say 90% of people like this crap, even though like a 100% of us were never asked.
Yeah modern art is crap. Somebody left their glasses on the floor near a wall at an art museum, and
people thought it was an exhibit.
That was hilarious.
Robert Cecil(Who is my MC) had an little pet parrot he would have strut across the table at dinner party. I think that's cute.
Tom Hanks collects typewriters.
Macedonia changed its name in February to The Republic of North Macedonia
The father of ransomware was Harvard-educated anthropologist Joseph L. Popp Jr. While researching the theory that AIDS originated in green monkeys in East Africa, Popp in 1989 mailed more than 20,000 floppy disks about AIDS education to people interested in public health. When recipients ran the disk, their computers froze, and a message on the screen instructed them to send up to $378 to a post office box in Panama for a second disk that would restore their access.

Peter No-Tail = Pelle Svanslös = Pekka Töpöhäntä is 8 years old.
It is respectable age for a small cat.
Peter/Pelle/Pekka is a lovely character in Gösta Knutsson's books.
It is (May 27, 2019) Siouxsie Sioux's 62nd birthday today.
One day on Mercury (175.96 Earth days) is longer than one Mercurian year (87.96 Earth days).
As of today, I have been alive for 11,925 mornings. Though I'd prefer 12,000 at least.
Legendary quarterback Bart Starr was chosen as the 200th overall pick in the 17th round of the NFL draft.
I misread that at first.
Live ebola viruses can survive for up to a year in the eyes and testes* of survivors of the disease.
*assuming said survivors are equipped with one or both of those organs
Lighting C4 on fire, or shooting it, will not cause it to explode.
(what about thermite?)
But if it is aflame, hitting it with a hammer or bullet will make it explode.
Time for some emperical observation...
Later this evening at the local emergency room...
"So how'd you lose your fingers?"
"Oh ya know, but I managed to find them scattered throughout
the neighborhood. Had to fight old lady Grazilda's rat-terrier
for my left thumb. So Doc, what do ya think?"
"Sure we'll just glue 'em back on."
"That doesn't sound-"
"Really? We can't just one up the Orks, by cementing and
hammering them back in place, and hoping for all the best.
Instead it will take many long hours of micro surgery to repair
the damaged nerves, and reattach the tendons, and so on.
I'm not sure you seem the kinda guy to appreciate the gravity
and cost concerned with in the least giving you use of your
"I see. So what's my alternative then."
5 hours later...
"Honey, I am now a cyborg. Check it out, it's grabby and squeezy..."
A less than impressed wife face palms pretty damn hard, as her hubby
starts having a three way conversation with the two T-Rex grabber claws
the surgical team had managed to attach to the tendons left in his thumbs
"Damn these things are great...However, I am a bit suspicious as to how
this all happened. I do remember an absurd amount of laughing during the
Grabby and Squeezy whisper to each other a few seconds, then look at the
man they are grafted to for the rest of his natural life.
"It must have been the Joker...heh heh heh..."
The option to bet on the over/under of the total number of goals scored in all games played in the NHL on a given day is called the Grand Salami.
If I'm close enough to a k of C4 to lose my hands, that rat-terrier is gonna get a piece of my mind!
If you cut a hole in a basketball net you have one less hole.
One of the oldest continuously living animals are jellyfish, whom existed in one way or another since the start of the cambrian (~541 million years ago) (sponges and coral predate jellyfish and are both 'animals'). So really, the most successful animal design (evolutionarily speaking) is one which doesn't even have a distinct brain or really even a distinct anything.
Putin has doubled his ratings in one day.
In Thursday Russian Gallup company VTsIOM told that only 31.7% of Russians trust Putin. That is lowest number in 13 years.
Then Kreml asked that Gallup company what they mean and surprise, surprise, ratings doubled to 72.3%. That change was explained with "new method".
You can guess what is behind this "new method".
