If you’re buying figurines from Ebay, or anywhere for that matter, “China Version” never means “legit Chinese release”. It will always mean bootleg. If a Japanese figure is being released elsewhere and you’re looking for a marking for the version you’re better off trusting something labelled “International version”, as that is how the Sailor Moon figures are being released. There is no difference between Japanese and International in the box or figure, but the TOEI sticker will be silver instead of gold, and you might have a Tamashii Nations sticker indicating that it’s imported and have the warnings printed on the box in Japanese translated into English.
China Version is bootleg speak for “piece of crap bootleg”.
The only item I’ve ever seen labelled correctly as Chinese are items that literally were made in China for Chinese release. For example, there are some Star Lockets that came in alternate boxes for release IN China. But even those are usually labelled Hong Kong release, or Korean release.
If Bandai makes a line of toys or figures they will not give the designs to be made elsewhere. The figures, like most things, are probably already being manufactured in a shop in China… but they’re considered Japanese because they are designed and shipped out of Japan from a Japanese company (whereas say North American toys are made in China, but designed and shipped out from a company in North America).
Bootleggers steal the design, create their own, and sell them for dirt cheap, or over priced with defects. They aren’t considered the same thing legally even if they’re created with a stolen mold because of quality, and licensing for the company to manufacture.
If an official version exists I highly recommend learning how to recognize them and purchase official.
Luke and I were looking at Hieronymus Bosch’s painting The Garden of Earthly Delights and discovered, much to our amusement, music written upon the posterior of one of the many tortured denizens of the rightmost panel of the painting which is intended to represent Hell. I decided to transcribe it into modern notation, assuming the second line of the staff is C, as is common for chants of this era.
so yes this is LITERALLY the 600-years-old butt song from hell

This relationship? I mean if you’re into being sold to a man who’s abusive and rapes you but eventually learns to love you, then yes. This relationship.
“Drogo leads Daenerys off to consummate the marriage. A thirteen-year-old girl who had been abused by her brother for most of her life and had been given no say in the marriage, Daenerys is terrified of her bridegroom and expects to be raped. Despite his fierce reputation, however, Drogo proves to be a surprisingly considerate lover. Although he and Dany share no common language, he establishes that he understood the word “no,” then begins touching her gently. He does not begin to have intercourse with her until Dany expresses her consent and initiates it. This tender wedding night set the tone for their marriage, which becomes a remarkably happy one.”
I haven’t gotten into Game of Thrones, but I hear this is one of the differences from the Television show and Novels that some people got annoyed/mad about.
I haven’t read the books (yet) but even I’m pissed off about that difference.
I haven’t read the books yet either.. but that passage.. it makes their relationship make much more sense.
It’s funny because if there the letters w and o were in front of men, this would have a million notes. With tens of thousands of people saying terribly awful it is.
Let that sink in a little.
It is not a competition of who has it worse, man or woman. The goal should be to stop it entirely, quit being fucking ignorant, grow up.
wth this is absolutely vile
what the fuck? how does anyone think this is okay?
If you see this do NOT call an exterminator, call a beekeeper to relocate them for you.
Fuck that, I’m calling a SWAT team
No you’re not
Hey man! Bees are extremely important! They are the worlds most efficient and effective pollinators! without bees we wouldn’t have lots of fruit and vegetables and nuts! Like cucumbers, almonds, cherries, and that’s just naming a few. Because these plants can only be pollinated by bees, therefore if there were no bees there would be none of those foods! that’s why you gotta kiss bees and not kill them
Yep! These bees are swarming. They have all gathered there before heading off together to find a new place to build a hive! At this point in a Swarm, the bees can actually just be knocked in to a box and taken to an appropriate Hive, as long as you have the queen. She’s in there somewhere. Honestly during the swarm ball bees are pretty chill. Nothing to get over excited or frightened about.
Bees are the least likely to harm you while they’re swarming like this. At this point, there isn’t a hive or any young for them to protect. Seriously, it’s not worth jacking nature even more just because you don’t wanna get stung (especially when you’re very unlikely to be)
Bees are dying off in an alarming rate and we need to do everything we can to help them. If they’re not around to pollinate our food crops, we are truly screwed.
I need to have my tablet taken away.
