here you go have some spider-man for your day.
this came out of that same discussion about spidey stuck to the flag and dear god i hope it is as funny to everyone else as it is to me. i also hope people are willing to believe that new york pigeons are beasts and could probably carry a grown man around if they wanted to.
I’d bet that some of those pigeons could carry a full-grown man, especially if they were flying toward food.
The need to share this was way too strong to deny.
Last year, I kept my Desert Bus Craft-Along items tightly under wraps but this year… well, I’m so proud of this that I couldn’t wait to share it.
This is my framed floating cut paper art of Princess Peach’s stained glass window. It’s over 100 pieces of pearl cardstock and vellum with just a few gems for extra sparkle. I really enjoyed doing my own interpretation and including a bunch of fun elements. Making the best use of both sides of the glass was the challenge but I found that the flowers from her Peach Blossom Final Smash added a nice touch.
While this piece is destined for Desert Bus for Hope 8, you can see more of my cut paper art here on my blog.
As you can see, my girlfriend is also crazy.
…And talented. *cough*
This is awful. This lizard is not showing affection. They’re reptiles, not dogs.
Lets break this down
1. “This is awful.”
Ok. This is your thesis statement. This photoset is something you have deemed awful. This is the topic you will expand upon over the rest of this post. Simple start.
2. “This lizard is not showing affection.”
And here we have our first supporting topic. Ok. This is a statement which you have presented as fact, and should now be backed up or explained in some way. Because of course, to make such a statement, you must have good reason to believe this is the case. I look forward to hearing what expertise you have to display on the behavior of lizards.
3. “They’re reptiles, not dogs.”
Ok, this may be a given fact, but it has nothing to do with the rest of your argument. You still have not backed up your point that this lizard is not showing affection, and are instead stating a very blatantly obvious, separate point, immediately after the first one.
In fact, this point is completely irrelevant to your other two statements. If you could somehow bridge the gap between “this isn’t a dog” to “this is awful”, or “This lizard is not showing affection” to “this isn’t a dog”, perhaps there would be some clarity in your argument.
But as it stands, it seems you spitefully assumed something negative about this man and his large lizard pet, and rushed to type up three completely incongruent sentences without any actual evidence supporting any of them.
In conclusion: I want a large lizard.
Also, it appears to depend on the species of lizard. While some seem outwardly “incapable” (as far as we can understand) of expressing affection, others do seem capable of specific signals, along with appreciation of touch. Learning and communication abilities are also vastly different between species and individuals. The problem actually seems to be that finding a decent source of information is damn hard, so I’m not even sure if a lack of research or a lack of expressing possible research is at fault.
I need a “the more you know” rainbow with a nyan lizard.
