Pinned toot

So, hey, I'm a translator. And I'm pretty much *always* looking for more work.

I translate to and from Polish.

Not the most in-demand language in the English-speaking world, but if you need a translation done or know someone who does, hit me up.

I'm good at what I do, I have low rates, and I can work pretty damn fast if that's what you need.

I am also pretty versatile, I've translated everything from literature to marketing to technical stuff.

Might as well do this.

Hi! I'm a leftist, furry nerd from Poland, 32 y.o.

I'm shy/socially inept, but always vaguely hope to talk/befriend new people, esp. online (so talk to me about whatever). Both online and IRL, I default to treating everyone as a friend unless given a reason not to.

I'm a cis guy (pronouns he/him), but if you're a furry - I'm vastly more comfortable and less prone to anxiety if you assume I'm a woman (she/her) and if we interact as such online.

One thing I love about dogs is that even though, by all indication, an average dog can understand at most several dozen words, many dogs are sooooo happy to listen to people talk.

Way back when, my sister's dog used to be the most extreme in this. He would listen to anyone talking to him positively entranced.

But my dog shows traces of this, too. "I am so excited about what you say and it's so interesting and funny! I have no idea what all those sounds mean, but I won't let it stop me!"

(I mean, the closest we have to low-gravity environments on Earth are aquatic environments. And where do we find huge, bulky creatures like whales? That's right.)

So a spindly, slender body would be the least waste of energy and would be the least prone to damage due to sheer weight.

In low gravity, however? Extra strength from extra muscle mass is useful, and unless the creature relies on flying or high jumps, being grounded by being fairly massive would be beneficial by making the animal/person/whatever stable.

In popular fiction, aliens (or other creatures) from high-gravity planets tend to be depicted as massive. Yes, they are short, but also very wide and often muscular.

Low-grav creatures are the opposite - usually tall and thin.

This trope annoys me a little bit, because if anything, it should be the opposite. In high gravity, a strong support would be useful, yes, but otherwise the frame should be light (square-cube law's a bitch). OTOH, large bulk in low-gravity environments would be fine.

Note that I grew up on video games from as early as late 80s, and I played video games since about 1990. So that a visual component of a video game would be such a big deal for me is more than a little weird. I'm used to games not having graphics that are all that inspired.

I just realised (took me only 17 years, LOL) that a significant part of why I didn't get into the Warcraft games is probably that I loathe the aesthetic of the franchise, since about Warcraft 3. I don't even know why.

Even when I briefly played Hearthstone, I remember the visuals being the single most off-putting part of the game (other than perhaps the sound). And I never really liked Hearthstone all that much, gameplay-wise.

dog sickness update 

Also, we barely noticed stuff was wrong in the first place. He never complained or acted like he was sick or anything, he's the bravest boy ever.

I remember my sister's dog, a really tough beast that was probably some kind of Terminator, would act like the world was ending over the most minor of health problems. He loved the attention.

Not this one. Apparently he believes in putting on a brave face.

We took our dog to the vet because he was considerably less chipper than usual. Sure enough, poor guy is sick =(

Unclear yet what is wrong, he got some anti-inflammatory injections for now and some blood tests are being conducted.

Also, he's been avoiding using one of his hind legs, and sure enough, s'likely a recurrence of his spine problems (which've been an issue since we've owned him). He'll need to avoid walking up/down stairs at least until he's back to walking normally.

Major bummer =(

Also, it's my birthday today.

Woo. And stuff.
