DEAD GRANDMA HAS WEIRD WEIGHT LOSS SECRET (DOCTORS HATE HER)(SHE IS FULL OF SCAVENGING ANIMALS AND IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN)

Best villain in Mario canon.

Too bad the gifs can’t capture the bone-cracking sounds as her head rotates.

Whenever I get sad about my anatomy I look at Rob Liefeld’s art and that cheers me up.

I sounds kinda weird but following your blog has been helping me get over my fear of parasites. I love animals and insects and pretty much everything but I have such a huge fear of parasitic creatures. Learning about them is kinda helping me get over that. Thank you!!!

bogleech:

Yeah having parasites is natural to all wildlife, not many of them cause permanent harm or death unless you’re an insect - in which case, no matter what insect you are, odds are there’s at least one wasp, one fungus and multiple nematodes who specialize in destroying you.

The medical world is beginning to think humans are actually a little healthier if they have a few worms, though. Small amounts of hookworm have been used to treat chronic allergies, and it’s starting to look one reason humans suffer so many allergies is that our bodies don’t know what to do when there aren’t tiny parasitic animals in there to keep under control, particularly hookworms, which would have infected 100% of our ancestors.

I’m glad the worm we’re all “supposed” to have is also the one that looks like a baby drew it.

Featured Artist #6: Mark A. Facey

Creature Journal is the Tumblr website of the artist Mark A. Facey and was, in fact, the inspiration for me to create this Tumblr.

His beautifully coloured drawings are a mix of fantasy and science fiction and come always accompanied by descriptions of the amazing creatures he paints.

Mark has recently published a PDF book with more than 52 illustrations, many of them you can see in this photoset, with amazingly high-resolution. The most amazing though is that it is selling for only $2! I’ve got mine and I don’t regret. You can buy it directly from his website or through this link:

Why was the B/G god so poorly designed? If I exile a creature card from my opponent's GY, he gets the 1/1 death toucher. This isn't good

The card originally only exiled cards from your own graveyard. To make it stronger and allow you to interact with your opponent making use of cards in their own graveyard, the ability to exile creature cards from other player’s graveyard was added. You getting the death touch enchantment creature snake would have bee too good.

What a rude question. When did “less powerful” become “worse design”? They’re not correlated at all. Having said that I was slightly disappointed by Karametra true.

It is a GOD. A card that is a representation of a God. An all-powerful being. At mythic rarity. If it is as bad as Pharika is, then yes it is badly designed.

Sorry when I said Karametra I meant Pharika. I assume by bad you mean not very powerful, and this is not a what design is. Development handles power level. I agree the lack of wow factor when reading it does lessen the card and that she doesn’t feel godly, but this a design thing, if she gave you a 10/10 snake then she would fundamentally be the same design.
Basically I agree with you but I think you’re blaming the wrong people. Also we haven’t seen the future standard environment, for all we know huey will be the snake tribal set and Pharika will rule supreme.

By the way I’m not the OP. :P 

Anyway, like you say we basically agree with each other. My point being that it is a card that represents an all powerful being, and yet it wants quite a complex deck built around it for a relatively small reward. If it was going to be more B/G graveyardy stuff, why make it actively work against so much of that? Not to mention it doesn’t even represent her being the god of healing and medicine at all. She just makes snakes. Everything about it screams cop-out. 

In this case I feel it’s both bad and badly designed. Not a great card, nor a very flavourful ability.
