Amusing Inspirations

Postby Cyril_Dran on Sun Apr 01, 2007 8:50 pm

You've all seen those Inspiration pictures, like "Serenity" and it shows a drop of water hitting the surface of water and stuff.. My friend showed me these, and I was wondering if anyone else had seen similar pics..

I've got another one referring to the bomb scare over Adult Swim characters, which I'm currently using as my desktop, but I'm not 100% sure it's "safe" material on the political grounds...

That thread is just awesome. I've made a few posters for it myself.

Be warned though, if you go to read it, you'll waste a couple days just clicking through and laughing.

I went there a while back. I'm almost afraid to return.

My roommate printed out the one about "Tyrannosaurs in F-14s!!!" (Exalted: Yeah, it's kinda like that.)

Cease and desist orders ahoy!

Dead serious about GURPS SPANC. I've even made up a "Rum Table" showing how Rum eventually makes all Ninja rolls nearly impossible but turns you into a super-swashbuckling UberPirate.

Actually just sailors who had scurvy.

As it turns out, the term "limey" originally applied to British sailors. In the 17th and 18th centuries, sailors suffered terribly from scurvy, a condition caused by a lack of vitamin C. Vitamin C comes mainly from fresh fruits and vegetables, but these foods aren't exactly easy to come by when you're at sea for months at a time.

So the Royal Navy prescribed lime juice for all sailors to help ward off scurvy -- hence the appellation "limeys." As often happens, the term eventually lost its original context and was applied to all British, whether sailors or landlubbers.

Whereas the term for British pirates is "seadog", coined by Sir Francis Drake in reference to experienced sailors more commonly refered to as "Old Salts"

Wasn't Drake himself a privateer though? (Which is basically a pirate with a license...)
