April 21st 1989: Game Boy released

On this day in 1989, the original Game Boy was released in Japan. It was later released in North America in August and in Europe in September 1990. The device was one of the first handheld gaming consoles, making it a groundbreaking invention that revolutionised the concept of videogames by allowing for them to be played on-the-go. The Game Boy was relatively cheap compared to rivals on the market (costing ¥12,500 at launch) and was a huge success, selling almost 120 million units. The designers of the console, the same team who gave us the Game & Watch series, ensured the device handled in a similar way to the familiar Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) with its eight-way D-pad controller and four buttons. Some of the most popular original Game Boy games included: Super Mario Land, which sold over 18 million copies; Tetris, which sold 35 million copies; and the first Pokémon games, released in 1996. Nintendo continues to produce handheld game consoles and the popularity of the Mario and Pokémon franchises endures. The most recent handheld was the Nintendo 3DS, which features touch screen control and 3D graphics; technology only dreamed of in 1989.

25 years ago today

Yeah so anyone else remember when Kirby was white…? I was super surprised when suddenly Kirby was pink everywhere.

I had a first generation Gameboy!

ME TOO oh look it’s the actual adults fandom, striking again!

I earned mine with straight A’s in fifth grade.

To the Boys Who May One Day Date My Daughter - Video

I love this so fucking much

Everyone needs to watch the video because it’s so much better than this gif set.

Close, but not quite.

"To those who date my children."

Not recognizing your son’s heart is just as fragile is a dick move. Not leaving open the fact that your kids might be LGBT is a dick move.

Children of Skips have been told since the second we met that I wish they find love. Period. Our door is open to whoever they bring to meet us.

Brutal honesty

Current or past recipients excepted, if I did minis customizing for a little extra cash would the 89 of you who follow me be willing to pay? It’s all labor work. I have a ton of materials.

aphrael6 mini work In progress. Leaving the kick-ass black Gloves, and loads more detail but some preliminary color blocking done

My excitement knows no bounds. I’ve never had a true custom!!

is far too kind.

That’s a sweet looking miniature. How did the Warhammer one come out?

I legit forget which Hammer mini you mean. I blame close proximity to dementia patients on my caseload.

Ah, the Macgree Dreadnought one I think.

Oh lol yeah. He’s still in limbo but black primed.

Ah, alright. You should post some pictures of it when you get around to working on it.

Plan to. I have an old Citadel paint, this lipstick fuschia, that I would love to use as the base coat but also don’t want to waste it

Just bought my first set of gaming dice! I’m told Chessex brand dice last forever.

Indeed. My first set (aside from missing a few members) still are in excellent condition.

Enough with the “Zombie Jesus” jokes

lawfulgoodness:

It clearly states resurrection.  ”Resurrect” doesn’t work on undead, constructs, or elementals.  Or if it was “Raise Dead” then he still couldn’t have ever been undead.

So enough with the Zombie Jesus.  It’s trite, unoriginal, and clearly inaccurate.

Happy Easter everybody!

I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama

LIES.
that came from taxes I paid.

Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.



#gonna need obamacare to afford treatment for that burn jackass

what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.

“ye”

—   where did this come from and why can’t I stop saying it (via alphaidiot)

Actually? “Ye” as a modern English marker to indicate “the” is basically modern English completely getting our letters mixed up.

YE OLDE? Nope. That Y was actually a letter that spelled the voiced TH sound (at the beginning of THe, middle of faTHer, etc.). The letter was called “eth” and was shaped like a backward P, bit with the loopy bit more in the middle. Old script writing/calligraphy often made eth look like a capital cursive y. Hence we say ye for the and are 100% fucking wrong.

Also, in modern English TH is the only sound where adding or subtracting voice doesn’t result in a different letter. TH voiceless is the start of think, the center of mithril, and end of both. Because we’d also prefer to just be the that guy of language, however, that rule is hard to enforce as we spell shit pretty much however we want.
