I loved loved loved the first two seasons, then just lost interest midway through season 3. It's definitely a good one, though.

i was just watching a twitch stream and someone made a donation with text that was a bunch of 7s and the text to speech thing read it out as a huge number
it made me realize something that i feel silly for not having realized before: "billion" and "trillion" are named that because of prefixes. (and it continues accordingly - Quadrillion, Quintillion, Sextillion, Septillion, Octillion, Nonillion)

yeah that viral post is why i had it in my mind

and it's weird, because you're taking the prefix "bi" meaning two and then replacing it with a "tri" that doesn't mean three

Ken Meyer Jr did a commission alter of some Kird Apes as Michael Jordan and the internet got Upset because that's a racism

It's hard for me to see that as a racism, but it is kinda weird. I could see it if the name hadn't been changed, or if it was bad art, or if the art somehow resembled the Kird Ape art, but it just looks like someone who loves Michael Jordan to me

Clicking through I see he does a ton of Kird Ape alters, and oh I get it, he painted the original art for Kird Ape. And then he also has some other random basketball alters, four Ernham Djinns that are each an iconic pair of basketball players

Now if Michael Jordan's jersey number was 22, then it would be racism. But if it was 11 then it's fine again, because hey Michael Jordan without any forests, that's not racist.

That's how racism works, as I understand it from listening to the internet.

Which brings up the point, Ox88 is a totally acceptable, not-racist number

to avoid racism and be socially conscious we've changed the birth certificate of every single person born in 1988

personally it took me a long time to realise that the controversy over the name wasn't the typical kirdape misreading
