So! Quick question!

Who really gives a goddamn about this supposed merger between FA and who-the-fuckever-it-is?

Not I, said the captain!

Being about as far removed from the equation as I can possibly be (neither starting, nor ending, nor continuing any drama about that issue over there), I notice that there's a pretty even divide about the whole matter and, once again, the admins are being so delightfully vague about details and information regarding the whole thing, I'm reminded of another company that kept it's users in the dark about a growing issue until the whole thing blew up in their faces.

Sony.

Remember that whole blackout issue with private data being hacked, pirated, compromised, and otherwise left on the side of the road in a crumpled heap? Sony *knew* about it and instead of doing the right thing and alerting and assuaging their customers (i.e. everyone who had data on the PS Network), they tried to handle it and be vague about it until there was no way they could avoid the awful truth: not only had they not told the whole story to their users, they'd lied about how deep the shit they were in *really was*.

Given that a majority of furries are, regardless of the non-interconnectedness, gamers, one would think that being completely open and honest about it would be a good thing. Being up front about ALL of the changes and ALL of the details such that when the inevitable rock meets the hard place, things will be easier to handle.

And it will. Inkbunny is given PROOF that the admins at FA fail at being good at keeping their users informed and, more to the point, working for the users instead of against them.

Now, before anyone thinks I'm ranting, remember, I could really honestly care two shits *LESS* about FA. I go there to look at porn and little else. It has no real redeeming value aside from the few friends I have there who still post art there. Some of them, as I've recently found out, are afraid of the admins. Afraid that their art will get them banned or suspended or ridiculed. And the admins promulgate this notion by both their ineffective stratagem of being largely incompetent at what they do and by the fact that most of them are, for lack of a better term, trolls. Don't believe me? S'fine. You don't have to *coughwitchiebunnycough*.

Excuse me. Something in my throat there. Not really sure how it translated to my fingers...

Anyhow, I'm getting off topic. This merger has just as much chance to succeed as it does to fail, but really, who cares? So you go to one site instead of two? Sooooo you have to expend even less effort to find your wanky wank for the day? Am I making broad generalizations?

Yep. Because I still can't really find anything *solid* to go on about it. And regardless of my apathy for the site, I still constitute as a user. And as a user, I'm vaguely offended that something this big is being handled so poorly or without any real clarity. Who knows? Maybe it has been.

Maybe I would care more. Oh wait. Care about a website that has bigots, racists, bullies, and liars for its staff?

Sure. I'll get right on that.

P.S. Yes, I'm well aware that this journal is incredibly inflammatory and mean-spirited and is designed to make people upset. It's my journal. I have the right to write what I want without actually being any of those terms I just said. Besides, prove me wrong. Prove me wrong when a friend of mine is *still* suspended for TEN YEARS over something so monumentally not worth it. When he had to beg the all-powerful site god to let him transfer his stuff out.

I don't care. If there is something that life has taught me, it's that there are some things that should be forgiven. There are some things that should be forgotten. How the site admin of FA regards and treats his user *BY HIS ACTIONS, NOT BY HIS WORDS* is neither.

Done now. Bed time.

I amused with how much people are freaking out about it. While I would actually enjoy seeing FA bite the dust, I don't think this merger is really going to do anything too bad. If anything it'll just increase the size of the bureaucracy that runs the site.

I actually hit the post button way too early. There's more to it than what I initially posted. Sorries bout that.

Ha ha! I thought you were going to say Toyota!

DAAAAAAAAYYYYUMMMMM. That's some laser-guided bitchslapping right there, amigo!


Actually, I haven't heard of a merger at all. Though it does make me wonder, if they're considering one, could it be taken as an admission that FA can't survive on its own? ;)

Haven't heard of that. You have to remember to tell me next time we chitchat since it sounds juicy.

See, I've been contemplating anger lately. And what I know now is that focusing it, making sure it sticks, and is not ambiguous is twice as effective as just blarghling at the gods for whatever reason. Also, I've fucking had it with those twerps. They're racists, bigots, bullies, liars, assholes, trolls, fuckheaded buttwhistlers, and any other thing I can think of on a night with no sleep and a short fuse. We should demand better but we don't because that could jeopardize the porn and we *can't* have that, now can we?

uh...duh?

Dude, it was all over the news last year. All the cars accelerating uncontrollably? And they blamed the floormats at first? Then finally grudgingly admitted that they knew about the problem years before they admitted to it, and have no idea what caused it?

>See, I've been contemplating anger lately. And what I know now is that focusing it, making sure it sticks, and is not ambiguous is twice as effective as just blarghling at the gods for whatever reason.

Absolutely. I try to avoid whenever possible writing an angry jurnal and posting it immediately. I either write it, then proofread it several times, or write it then come back to it. Feel the anger, then get yourself calm enough to make sure you're expressing it in the best possible way.

>fuckheaded buttwhistlers

That phrase needs to be enshrined in gold.

Wow...a 4000 lbs vehicle accelerating out of control which roughly equals a metric fuckton of kinetic energy...and they didn't think to tell anyone that they had no clue how to stop it?

TOYOTA. Dude.

Also, I would proofread, but tirednessblaaaaargh.

>That phrase needs to be enshrined in gold.

I...*really* wish I could take credit for it, but I can't. Heard it somewhere else and giggled like a girl at prom night.

My turn to math-geek out and figure out exactly how much a metric fuckton of kinetic energy is.
Assuming said out-of-control vehicle is going about 60mph (which may sound reasonable for the highway... but what about residential streets? A school zone?) and weighs the aforementioned 4000lbs, let's start with ze metric conversions:

4000lbs * 0.45359237 kg/lb = 1814.36948 kg.
60miles/hr * 1609.347219 m/mile * (1/3600)hr/s = 26.82245365 m/s

Kinetic energy = (1/2) * mass * velocity^2 = 1814.36948kg * (26.82245365 m/s)^2 * 1/2 = 652668.63605262231253359865 Joules. Call it 6.5*10^5 J. I'd come up with an example to show scale, but everything I could find listed for the same order of magnitude of energy was... "a car traveling at highway speeds". *headdesk* (At least that means I didn't screw up the calculations...)

Interestingly, you could also imagine it as six and a half hundred thousand tennis balls flying across a tennis court at once... or the energy you get from eating half a candy bar. @_@ A little over 100 grams of TNT. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orders_of_magnitude_%28en...


Now that that's done, you can get results for any other speed of the same car by taking the target speed, dividing by 60mph, squaring the result, and multiplying by my final figure there. :P
