Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
First thing first: I totally forgot about the Placebo song during all the flight. I win.
I wasn't the only one to picture it that way. Some people asked me how came I was allowed to take photos or go in the cockpit. Actually, space research is NOT necesseraly military !
this picture was a bitch to draw without sketching first. So the perspective is a bit awkward
I had to explain to a lot of people that they are not such things as gravity room like in Dragon Ball. Even to very smart and cultivated people. I'm always amazed by how few most of people know about physics
Yeah. The vomit was my main preoccupation
I love this low-tech science-fiction style, with duct tape and straps. Directors often forget that in their movies. Even if we reach Mars some day, our ships will need duct-tape and straps.
The scopolamine descent is harsh. It feels like you've been awake for two nights while sucking plaster
It's hard to look good on the photos. Your heart pumps more efficiently your weightless-blood so you get a big red face with throbbing veins. Not so glam.
Weeeell even at normal gravity it's hard to make a good sketche in 22 seconds.
the video doesn't show half of it. You REALLY see the plane FALLING.
And untied hair in weighlessness is beautiful
The pun was already awkward in french. In english it barely makes any sense. In french the Zero-G maneuvre is called a 'Parabole', so is a 'Palabre' [I think he means parable. The joke is that "parable" and "parabola" are the same word in French Ed.]. Same word. In english though... Oh my god this is embarrassing. I'll stop trying to explain the joke, now. Sorry.
I usually wait for a piece of furniture to collapse before I allow myself to buy a new one. Not because I would be greedy but just because I'm really not interested. I'm able to spend all my money in books, movies, drinking, but buying a couch was for me the most shallow act I'd ever done. First I had to convinced myself that it wasn't such a big deal, that my old cushions were stinking like a dead donkey and that it would be better for friends who came over
Opening a paypal account was even more painful. I imagined myself ruined, because I might buy tons of useless junk online. It was driving me paranoid. And as a result I spent about 500€ on furniture. In ten years.
It took me eight years to buy this lampshade. I still have nine naked lampbulbs at home. And one with a chinese paper-lampshade I bought at the mall five years ago.
It was quite moving to get rid of this chair. It had become a real character on this blog, appearing in a lot of comics !
There's also a taste issue. I don't have any. 95% of my friends who saw my carpet said 'Ho. Wow. Disco!'. The 5% left said 'Ouch, this is so gay!'
@DisruptedCapitalist Yeah, I had carrots that tasted bad. My dad says it's the way they were grown, nothing to worry about. (Not that I could tolerate the taste...) I guess boil 'em if you're not sure?
