For years, Mattel marketed a Barbie typewriter. When they switched from mechanical to electronic typewriters, they chose to license from a Slovenian manufacturer, Mehano, who readily supplied their E-115 (and later 116-118) model.

But these typewriters had a secret: hold SHIFT and LOCK, and press one of the first four keys on the first row, and the typewriter switches into substitution-cipher mode, encoding whatever you type:

Even if nobody responds to you telling your story, there's a chance--a good one!--that you touched someone anyway.

I've seen it happen.

I've been that person who was touched.

Thank you for sharing your heart. ❀️

"Humans are so lucky. Your monthly shedding is so discreet and largely unseen," Tro'k sighed, scratching at her sagging, flaking neck, causing small scales to drift off her. She was quite a sight - back on her home planet it wasn't an uncommon sight, but most folks on Earth weren't used to it and found it gross enough to sneer at.

I patted her hand, "Believe you me, if I could solve my monthly shedding overnight with a hot shower, I'd trade."

batman's costume doesn't have a nose. zubat doesn't have a nose. no clipart-scale depictions of bats have faces at all. nobody seems to think this is a glaring omission in their design.

look, bats have faces. bats have a LOT of face. they are the very OPPOSITE of featureless. if you are going to design a bat, then it doesn't really look like a bat unless it has a ton of face. possibly more face than is entirely attractive. does it really have to have that nose. really.

bats are not elegant winged orbs. they are rats with ludicrous faces that crawled into the darkness? i like elegant winged orbs, but are they really batlike?

Back in my day, you had to pack 8 meals, carry funds in three different currencies, and be ready to sleep in suspended hammocks to avoid predators in order to reach the Danger Zone, but since that highway was put in...

The Amazon plunged her courtship spear at the feet of the tall, armor clad Valkyrie she had spent the last year fighting beside. She waited, knots of nervousness turning her guts in a way so different yet similar to the dawn before battle.

A long moment later, the Valkyrie bowed her head and smiled shyly, "I'm very flattered... my husband and I would be honored to have you by my side in battle and sharing our home."

I can't get over the sign for 'trans' in ASL. It's so smooth and suave and pretty omg

It's turning your wrist/palm from down to up, moving inwards like a transformation or like a lotus over your heart. Chella in this video does it really smoothly: them.us/story/nyle-dimarco-che

The two boys gazed up at the poster of their hero.
"When I grow up, "said one, "I want to be just like him."
"And when I grow up I wanna marry him," said the other.
"...You can't do that!,"exclaimed the first boy.
"Why not?"
"'Because he already HAS a husband."
"I know... that's why I think I have a chance."
"I can't believe my best friend wants to be a home-wrecker."
"What if... when you become him, I just marry you instead?"
"Oh. Okay!"

I just love that this thing exists. That someone out there both had an extremely niche-audience, but so far pretty interesting, story to tell about the weird overlap between commercialised Christian media and videogame history, and was in a good position to publish it.

Little labours of niche love like that, that actually get out there and get seen and appreciated by someone (in this case, me)-- those make me smile. I kind of wanna write to the author.

basically "weird unlicensed videogames" and "the bizarre niche interpretations of religion that USians are strangely adept at coming up with" are two of my special interests, so y'all know I had to buy a $5 ebook about Wisdom Tree

(It's Bible Adventures: Boss Fight Books Book 7, if you're interested)

What I was actually trying to pull was this, which I believe is the best pair of opening quotes to a book that I've ever seen
