Behind The Scenes of The Simpsons Couch Gag by Sylvain Chomet (Triplets of Belleville).
I’m having traditional 2D animation nostalgia feels. Exposure sheets, little timing charts, flipping animation papers…
YouTube is a Completely Functional Site Programmed by Competent People
I am still flabbergasted how a website can go from fully functional, user- and community-friendly to this five-megaton clusterfuck bomb in literally just over a year

Gandhi has been historically the most aggressive character in Civilization due to an original bug in the first game that caused him to go all-out once he reaches democracy. They just kept the thing going ever since.
To further explain this bug, because I was chatting with mothmonarch about Civilization and other strategy games last night and I never got around to explaining this fully, but I love this story:
Gandhi’s AI in the original game had its aggression set to the absolute minimum (0 on a scale of 0 to 10, I believe, I may have this wrong but the basic idea I’m about to explain is accurate, as far as I can tell). Adopting democracy lowers an AI civ’s aggression by 2 points, so when someone who is fully peaceful loses two points of aggression, they should still be nice and polite, right?
Except this is an old DOS game, and so computer math is in place. What actually happened was that Gandhi’s aggression level ticked backwards two steps, from 0 to 255. On a scale of 0 to 10, Gandhi is now 255 points of pure nuclear rage.
And that’s the story as I recall it, but again I may have gotten some details wrong, so feel free to correct me! After that, as the original poster said, the devs loved the bug so much that they just kept it in as a running joke!
I do not know the individual involved in this, but, as an EMT, I feel compelled to post things like this. Wear a damn helmet, guys. I know you may think you look awesome and all the ladies will love how reckless you are, but you’re honestly just demonstrating just how little you value your own life. I know this horse has been absolutely beaten to death over the years, and I’m sure that my words won’t change some of your minds, but just look at the damage sustained by that helmet. Now imagine if your face was put through the same situation. While the helmet merely had part of it ground away by the sheer friction involved, your skull would be pudding. End of story.
TLDR Version: Wear a freaking helmet.
wear the damn helmet.
and stop wearing jeans and flip flops. you’re gonna regret that
Seconding the jeans and flip flops comment. I wore shorts and toe shoes on a dirtbike and ended up with severe burns on my thigh as well as numerous large cuts and bruises
I always wear my helmet when I ride. When I can I use my riding pants am motorcross boots.
