    This claymation show on Nick Jr that my nephews are watching has an absurdly low frame rate

    How low is it?

    This character talked for around five seconds and their model changed maybe 50 times
    So a higher frame rate than most anime then.

    ...and of course, as always, Kill Hitler.

    That sounds like a cool story which you should publish for me.

    Anime is like how the NES split up its screen to have the illusion of parallax scrolling. Some parts are 0 fps

    All animation is like this. The less that needs to move between frames the easier it is to film and cheaper it is to produce. For claymation shooting 24 FPS on twos is a pretty standard rate for non-feature content and will result in 60 motions in a 5 second period. With pauses in a dialogue scene that can easily drop to 50, though a great animator will find motions to work in those pauses.

    Edit: anime that shoots 24 on 4s is a fucking abomination tho

    Oh yeah thinking of stuff @lonelyahava @Organichu @credeiki @Havelock2.0 and the other Jewish brothers and sisters. It was nice having a thread to bitch about Jew stuff. Especially now with the scary oompa loompa coming to power and how he has really made it okay for the Nazis to come out of their holes.

    I was in a similar situation in York. I knew what I was supposed to do, but the staff/regulars were such a tight knit group my autism wouldn't let me get in the middle of them to ask for something.

    I was in a similar situation in York. I knew what I was supposed to do, but the staff/regulars were such a tight knit group my autism wouldn't let me get in the middle of them to ask for something.

    Mrs. Enc and I went traveling through England and Scotland about ten years back and we faced various levels of this problem at some of the places. We knew how to order, but a lot of times people would simply not serve us even after politely asking staff and regulars where who we should talk to in order to get a pint or some food. Everywhere we went in Scotland was extremely friendly, especially in Edinburgh, but goddamn was London absolutely horrid at almost every place we went that wasn't run by immigrants. At one point we ended up in a restaurant near Victoria Station and watched an Australian tourist couple get essentially mocked out of their table by some locals ragging on their accents (which seemed straight up bizarre to me given that we all are in the Anglosphere).

    But no where was as bad as Oxford. We had the misfortune to stop over on a train on a Sunday afternoon and there were literally only three or four places open to public. We were told to leave one place because they didn't serve Americans. Another place deliberately wouldn't place or order and after 45 minutes of repeatedly trying to get the bartender to pour drinks we just left. We got a really nice reception at, of all places, a Colombian restaurant which was vaguely reminiscent of home and talked with the owners for a good bit of Florida (they had family in Miami). Really nice folks, and apparently the only ones in all of Oxford. Couldn't leave the town fast enough when our connecting train came through.

    I wasn't surprised at all when Brexit happened. There is some deep hate for foreign folk there. If they treat white travelers as nasty as they did us, how exponentially more terrible must it be if you are of a different ethnicity or language? It was worse than rural Alabama, and I've seen some terrible shit there.
