I don’t think I could fill a whole essay on this, but it’s really sad whenever I see someone say I “drank the kool-aid”. Usually it’s in reference to some contentious opinion I have, like my commentary on 4chan. My positivity is taken as evidence that I have “drank 4chan’s Kool Aid” - a…
Considering the origin of the phrase “drinking the kool-aid” it seems less an explanation why someone holds an opinion and more explaining why it would be pointless to try to sway them from it.
Less like a Doctor saying that you’re unwell and then walking away, but saying “you’re terminal and it’s pointless for me to try and save you, so neither I nor anyone should waste any more effort.”
Which is kind of a silly concept considering that most doctors will tell you HOW a disease is killing you even if they can’t cure it.
Granted, I’ve rarely seen or heard the phrase actually used so I don’t know the context of how people say it commonly, let alone in your case.
Regardless, it seems to me that anyone who thinks that of you, Kazerad, clearly isn’t trying/searching hard enough for the antidote or is otherwise just unwilling to admit that they aren’t quite the experts on the situation they think they are.
Hope you enjoy the mashup! Took me a couple hours to cut together and speed/slow the parts just right to fit. The best parts — like the moments right after she ascends — didn’t need any adjustments at all, naturally.
Much as I love Cascad, in several places this works even better than the original music.
Edit: Cascad… wow. I know it’s a very minor typo but it’s just. Wow. Brain, where were you?
What. The other characters who died and came back saw the original text but couldn’t read it because from their position (or since they were made up of text from their original reality so on the reverse side they would literally be reversed) it appeared backwards?
But Anna’s dyslexia managed to reverse the reversed text to frontways?
This is so dumb it’s magnificent.
I mean, sure, of course dyslexia doesn’t actually work that way in real life, you likely know that already. However it’s definitely the way a Hollywood movie can/would handle dyslexia. I mean, just look at how causality works in Back to the Future. Or literally, actually look at Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief which explains Percy’s dyslexia as his brain being “hardwired for Ancient Greek,” despite all languages both written and spoken being a learned skill for all human beings.
Except also it will not hold up to people’s built up expectations either.
I basically read that as, instead of a Giga-update, it will just be regular updates with a conveniently big-ass buffer so that Huss can get more pages done, (as well as a myriad of other businessy or otherwise non-comic things).
