IF YOU ARE STREAMING, DON’T USE PROCASTER.

DON’T. USE. PROCASTER.

Livestream procaster consumes large amounts of cpu for nothing. No joke, nothing. As a result your stream can become laggy and sometimes it can damage your hardware as your PC has to push itself to keep what your streaming functioning as well as possible.

"But if we can’t use procaster what can we use insteaaaaad?"

Simple. There’s two programs, both that are free, that you can use that uses very little CPU and has more options than procaster. These programs are called Xsplit and OBS. To keep your head in one piece, I’m going to go over how to stream on Livestream with Xsplit.

Under the cut of course.

rabbidhectix asked:

Hey can is it possible for someone to retain their body fat after 10 years of intense training? It's for a story I'm doing and I'm wondering if a bigger impression would be made if the person in question lost his body weight to show how hard the training was, or kept to emphasize his focus on skill over his health?

coelasquid answered:

Everyone’s bodies are different and every type of training is different. People train for the same sports differently and have different physiques to show for it.

Both of these women are Olympic class champion weight lifters, both won gold in the 1999 Winnipeg PanAm games in their respective weight classes.

So many factors need to be considered, there’s no single “yes train at an undisclosed sport for ten years and you will absolutely have this one body type”. Is your character naturally an endomorph, ectomorph, or mesomorph? Because that hugely influences their body type at any fitness level. Is your character living in the woods and hunting for food? because if that’s the case they won’t be getting as many carbohydrates (or really nutrition in general) as characters living in walking distance of a grocery store and would likely develop a leaner, scrappier physique than they might have otherwise. Are they actively trying to achieve a certain body type or do they just care about training to be better at whatever this one sport you haven’t told me is. Are they focusing on getting bigger? Stronger? More agile? Faster? More Stamina? Even then, that’s just a starting point to help you research and gather references, there’s no be-all-end-all cookie cutter body type for a given sport.

flannelsmash:

For the asker, here is something to consider for one of those specific training possibilities! If it’s pure strength your character is after, without attention to looks, then SOME body fat is actually going to be an inevitability.

You can’t build additional strength/muscle in a calorie deficit, except under very specific circumstances (very fresh beginners chewing through excess body fat stores as “free” extra calories, steroid use - and even then!) So what a lot of the “ripped” guys do is alternate heavy training with an abundance of calories (see: “Gallon Of Milk A Day”), including the fat gains that results in, with calorie deficit periods to “cut” the fat and training designed to retain as much of their hard-won lean mass as possible (going home to a can of tuna and crying). Getting ripped, in short, is a time-consuming pain in the ass

See also the difference between this bulk/cut fitness fella:

And this slab of man-beef, capable of a 900lb deadlift and a 705lb bench press:

(Strongman Nick Best, a liftbigeatbig.com athlete.)

Not to say that Martin isn’t strong, but he also values a very lean physique and puts the time in to attain it. For someone like Nick, it would detract from his training for pure strength - and despite what his BMI would probably indicate at a glance, I’d say it’s more likely than not that he IS healthy. A heavier character is not always going to be in poor health - someone who lifts as heavy as Mr Best likely has a heart like a horse.

Great further elaboration on this topic.

commonly confused medieval weapons

a powerpoint by me

now stop screwing them up seriously or i will put a medieval weapon in your head

Tumblr is endearing me to being lectured at in Comic Sans

What the grim reaper is holding isn’t a weapon! It’s a farming implement. It works great for harvesting grain, which is generally shorter than people and also not trying to run away or kill you, but would be terribly ungainly and dangerous to its wielder in actual combat situations (and Death is traditionally pictured with one, because he’s harvesting, not fighting. Grim Reaper, remember? Not Grim Warrior). When used in war, a scythe would typically have its blade remounted parallel to the shaft, instead of perpendicular, like so:

Canonically Trans Characters in anime~

transientlarva:

In alphabetically order even!

(I’m sure I’m missing some characters so let me know~ Also there are a ton of characters in manga that I could probably throw on here but tried to just stick to anime~)

((I am rather annoyed when any of these characters are referred to as traps though, maybe I’ll make the #2D Trans Girls tag popular someday :V ))

PutumayoxDisney Collaboration Items

To celebrate the 110th Anniversary of Walt Disney Putumayo and Disney have teamed up to create this mini-collection of garments featuring genuine Disney artwork. Cute, right? Available from January (Not sure about that but thats what the translation suggests)

I WANT THE CHESHIRE PARKA

Fuck, me too. Look at them pockets.

//cries because it’s like almost $130

but the ears on the hood. is there a way to make the ears separate and attach them to the hood and have it still look nice? like i really just want a hoodie with ears overall and i like how clean these look

It’s a little hard to tell what the construction on these is, but I can’t see why you wouldn’t be able to attach some decent looking ears to an existing garment? You’d want to practice on some scrap fabric to perfect the technique before you started sewing things to a hoodie, and it might not be quite as sturdy (the way I’m thinking you could do it would be to construct the ears as entirely separate pieces and then hand-stitch them to the hood, so it wouldn’t be as strong as if they were sewn into a seam on the hood), but I think it’s doable.
