    Is a queen bee and a queer bee the same thing?

    Good evening.

    Ooh, is that filling made from beaten egg whites mixed with dates? I have a vague memory of a Swedish girlfriend making something like that one time, and presenting it as if it were a supreme delicacy, and I was like "Um... dates aren't even that nice to begin with, and raw beaten egg makes them worse if anything."

    We're not together any more, for some reason.

    Good morning.

    Raw beaten eggs? Dates? Nah man, it's a sweet roll filled with whipped cream and almond paste, with some powdered sugar on top. I mean, that's the traditional filling, the way things ought to be in a nice and orderly universe, but there are people who like to experiment with it.

    Such people are never to be trusted.

    You dodged a bullet there.

    Good morning.

    Actually, now that I think about it, she may have been Chinese.

    Good morning.

    Let me guess. Someone stole your sweet roll.

    No, SOMEONE DEFILED MY SWEET ROLL!

    I declare Exterminatus upon the Imperial world of Typhon Primaris.

    Good day.

    This made me want to find that edited Skyrim-Arcanum screenshot I made once upon a time, but the image hosting link appears to be expired. Bummer.

    Am I stupid? I don't get this. Could someone explain the reference?

    Please only answer the second of the above two questions.

    Good morning.

    It was a powerful metaphor that Zanza literally invented right then and there.

    Sweet rolls are life itself, and the act of stealing - well I wouldn't want to cheapen the metaphor by revealing too many details. Suffice to say myself, DE and Japes were all deeply moved by it.

    Good weekend!

    My ancestors are smiling at me Smuel, can you say the same?

    Good evening.

    Do you get to the Cloud District often Smuel? Oh what am I saying. Of course you don't.

    Cloud District? Ah, I know this one, it's from Final Fantasy 7, right?

    Good morning.

    Rather sickening (not NSFW or anything, just not safe for the sake of humankind going forward):

    https://www.bellingcat.com/news/res...rrorism-and-the-christchurch-mosque-massacre/

    Not really documented by the rest of mainstream media right now on the NZ attacks. I haven't done the follow-through and read the guy's manifesto - but I assume all the depressing meme-ry he's ending so many Muslim's lives with is true.

    I would recommend anyone who hasn't had to see death and gore on a daily basis not watch any streams of the shootings. If you have, I would recommend you not to watch it anyway, nobody needs that in their life.

    To clarify, my post is just about his weird manifesto and how creepily ineffectual it all seemed to be. I do realise how posting links without clarification is a grey area though, I should have been more explicit.
