“Do you dislike drawing human faces because you’re bad at it, or are you bad at it because you dislike it?”

Let’s be honest: this started long enough ago that I don’t even remember which of the dislike or the lack of skill came first. All I can say is, I still haven’t been given an appealing reason why I should break the cycle.

(and no, “every person who draws should know how to draw human portraits” is NOT a good reason)

Ever think about those countries that have active volcanoes on their territory, even though the popular consciousness doesn’t really associate them with volcanoes?

Canada, China, North Korea, France, Greece, Russia, Spain, Portugal, Iran, …

"She's not!"
"We chose wisely."

Remember that movie where an old woman learns that some mercenaries are desecrating a tomb while looking for a jewel she actually owns, so she gets herself invited to their base, talks them all into feeling sad, then discreetly gets rid of the jewel by dumping it right back into the tomb they just gave up on raiding?

A personal peeve, but I think I’m overdosing a bit on media (especially video games) set in the European Stone Castle Age and/or the Viking Age.

Long ago, two French-speakers:

“Guys, the English-speakers have invented something called the walkie-talkie. What should we call it in French?”

“Remember how they keep joking about our adjectives being out of order?”

”… yeah?”

“We’ll call it… le talkie-walkie.”

Random memories from my teenage years:

Showing up in school with my pants and shoes covered with mud because we’d spent the weekend with Dad’s relatives, and I slipped on the way to school and fell feet-first into a flooded rice paddy.

A coin clinked into the bowl.
"Tell a story of love and war."
The storyteller considered. "There once were two soldiers, who loved each other very-"
"No! Not like that!"
"I will give you what you have paid for. If it is not what you want, learn to ask better."

Oh, come on, Google! When I type “Titanic hull number”, please know that I’m looking for the number assigned to the hull that would later become the ship RMS Titanic.

I am NOT looking for the phone number of a pizza place named Titanic, located in Hull, England!

Almost three years after I completed the sketch, I finally got to color this guy.

And since he looks like he’s perfectly aware of being pretty, I named him Lavorary, meaning “perfect”.

(I’m nothing if not predictable…)

TIL that 25 June 1658 is nicknamed “the crazy day” in Dunkirk.

That day, the city woke up under Spanish rule, spent the day under French rule, and went to bed under English rule.

A young artist is exhibiting his work for the first time.

A well-known art critic is in attendance and approaches the artist to say: “Would you like to hear my opinion on your work?”

The artist: “Yes.”

The critic: “It’s garbage.”

The artist: “I know, but let’s hear it anyway.”

Science-fiction challenge:
