UM EXCUSE ME THOS E ARE FUCKING PIXELS HOW

Seize the Day was a calendar program made by in 1994 by Buena Vista software. It features graphics that at the time, were revolutionary because of the way they handled color cycling. These images were static bitmaps, but by changing color values, they appear animated. What is also impressive about these images is that they had full day night cycles built in, rendered also through color cycling.
A few years ago, a html5 version was made. A copy was uncovered online and there is a way to use the program through DOSbox. As well, one of the original programmers for the project, Iam Gilman, has thought of the idea of remaking it, open sourced, for modern machines.

thanks for writing a more elaborate explanation. i’ve seen these pictures be spread like wildfire without mention of the technology behind it.

Oh, I remember the html5 version from a while back.

i really appreciate the WHOLE BACKSTORY ON THIS FUKr

aaaaaah perfection!!! i love pixels.

refers to the latest botched state execution in the USA, where Arizona took a full two hours to kill a man using a secret mix of lethal drugs known to have been problematic when used before. The Arizona Republic newspaper said ..”By trying to pretend we are putting these convicts quietly to ‘sleep,’ we have instead fallen into a protocol that assures a lingering horror. If that is not the definition phrase ‘cruel and unusual punishment,’ the words have lost all meaning.” Senator John McCain said the botched execution amounted to "torture" .. (story here)

It is a refrigerated strip in the bar itself. You set your beer on it and it stays cold,

That seems like it’s gotta burn a lot of power…

Why some women use Grindr to play games with gay men

poppypicklesticks:

Can you imagine what would happen if it turned out a bunch of straight men were catfishing nudes from lesbians?  I mean seriously, how entitled are these women to think that gay men are just put on the earth for the amusement and pleasure of straight women, and how deluded do you have to be to be “jealous of the sexual freedom” of a minority group that cannot legally get married in most parts of the world (at the very least) and generally can’t even hold hands in public without fear of getting their faces smashed in?  Why do these women think its acceptable to pretend to be a gay man to go on an app for gay men to spy on them and catfish nudes? 

More insanity in the comments:

No, actually this is a thing I am a straight woman and I used to enjoy going on Grindr, and I think Oscar does a pretty good job at explaining why. I stopped doing it because other people didn’t think it was a good thing to do, not because I didn’t enjoy it. I’m glad to hear that it’s finally out that there are ladies that do this, especially because I know a few and it isn’t so weird or terrible in reality, there are a lot worse things people could hide behind in the internet and you really do have to do things carefully and at your own risk. I didn’t think I was hurting anyone, and if a gay guy got emotional or serious about things, I always stopped talking to them. It’s just harmless fun.”

Can you imagine what would happen if this was a straight guy saying “yeah I pretend to be a lesbian on the internet to get nudes off lesbians and chat dirty with them.  I’m not hurting anyone, I’m not invading a space that I have no right to be in, I’m glad people are speaking out so you realise we are not being weird or perverted, it’s just harmless fun.  Tee hee!”

Feminists want to talk about gay entitlement to female bodies?  Well, how about you stop pretending it’s a one way street and talk about shit like this for a change?
