I think I’ve said this exact thing before but it’s so freaking weird that we put breasts on so many alien creatures and anthropomorphic animals because the two prominent boobs are something totally unique to humans.

That’s like if we were chicken people and gave all our fictional beings cock’s combs. Even robots and cartoon bugs and shit.

Or maybe if we were turtle people and our version of Star Trek assumed a vast majority of alien races would have turtle shells cause that’s just so normal to us and marketing executives assume nobody will buy a game or watch a movie where the characters don’t have turtle shells.

Walrus pop culture where everything has tusks.

Termite people giving all their female characters huge colossal pulsating abdomens even if they’re cats or fish or humans.

Proboscis monkey pop culture where anything designated “male” has a big dangly fat nose to make it sexier.

Milicent Patrick (1915 - 1998).

Born Mildred Elizabeth Fulvia di Rossi, Milicent Patrick is one of many Hollywood unsung artists. She is the mind that created from scratch such iconic monsters as the mutants in “This Island Earth”, all the masks in “Abbott and Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”, the Mole People from the film of the same name, and created the Xenomorph for “It Came from Outer Space”.

But her biggest success was the design and creation of one of the most iconic cinematic monsters of all time, the Gill-Man from “The Creature From the Black Lagoon”.

THEY HAVE THE ACE ATTORNEY OFFICIAL MANGA IN MY LAW LIBRARY I AM CRYING.



Your honor, something is amiss here!
As you are probably aware, library materials are labeled with barcodes as well as a number to determine their location on the shelf, as per the Dewey Decimal System. The books just to the left of the manga are labeled, as are the DVDs just in view on the lower shelf. Look even further behind these shelves and you’ll see that even those books are labeled! 
Ladies and gentlemen of the courtroom, I invite you to take a closer look at the volumes that are, allegedly, part of this law library! Something is missing from the spines, isn’t there?

Where are the bar codes?!
This is a blatant contradiction! The OP is lying— these volumes cannot, therefore, be a part of this library at all! I propose that they simply brought these materials in for the sake of the joke!! 


Only focusing on one aspect and not the whole of the issue, are we, Mr. Wright? Typical.

Your honor, if you bring your attention to the books just left of the manga, you’ll notice there’s a book (the second to the left) that also does not have a bar code.

If you examine the picture even closer—particularly the DVDs below—you’ll see that they bear bar codes, but not on the spines. No, they have them on the back and/or front of the DVDs. Of course, this method of labeling and organizing isn’t limited to products of the film industry alone.

Therefore, I’d like to propose that it is entirely possible that the manga books do, in fact, belong to the library!


Wh-WHAAAAT?! You’re kidding!! 
(Shoot, he’s got me there… Better think of something fast! Something about the books that sets them apart from—
…! I’ve got it!)
While that may be true, you’ve also overlooked one critical error: the titles of the books! Whether or not your hypothesis regarding the labeling system is correct, these titles aren’t alphabetized correctly! What kind of self-respecting librarian would misplace such vital books? 
Well, Edgeworth?



While it pains me to have to point out something so obvious, I suppose I’ll make an exception for you, Wright.
Clearly, one look at the titles of the books next to the manga is a tell-all of this certain library’s less-than-stellar organization skills. None of the books are in alphabetical order, I’m afraid.

They could very well be alphabetized by author and not title, but it’s a little difficult to be able to decipher that from this single picture, wouldn’t you say?
Furthermore, the manga books themselves are in numerical order, suggesting some kind of system is in place, albeit not a very good one, if the alphabetizing is off.

At the end of the day, it seems like neither of us can draw a clear conclusion from this evidence alone. Your honor, I strongly suggest a recess in which we could investigate the library itself further.

I see the issue here very clearly.
Due to the uncertain nature of this case, we’ll have to postpone this decision until more decisive evidence can be obtained. The court will now take a 15-minute recess.

(W-wait, but I’m not—)


WAIT!!!

I’ve got some decisive evidence for you, pal!

We investigated further into the photo. Zooming in, you can see a label on the DVD case to the bottom left.

Photo Close-up added to the court record!


As you can see, pal, you can vaguely see the words “Of Toledo Law Library” on the label!

And, considering possibilities of the rest of that label, “University of Toledo" was the first to come to my mind!
A quick search on the University of Toledo’s Online Law Library Database revealed that there ARE the comics pictured in it!
Miles Edgeworth Ace Attorney Investigations volumes 1-4 and Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney volumes 1-5!

And there’s more! 
The section these comics are filed under is the “Law in Popular Culture" Section, which matches up with the stickers on the rest of the books on that shelf: "Lowering the Bar: Lawyer Jokes & Legal Culture”, “Prime Time Law”, “Lawyers in Your Living Room!" and "Reel Justice: The Courtroom Goes to the Movies”!
Not only is it in the right section, it’s also a documented part of the Law Library’s database!
How’s that for decisive evidence?

LOOK AT THESE COLOSSAL FUCKIN LEMONS FROM THE TREE MY BROTHER HAS PEED ON EVERY DAY SINCE HE WAS LIKE 5 YEARS OLD

im laughing/crying i dont want any more messages about this listen up you fucks apparently pee makes citrus plants grow well he learned this from a movie called the world’s fastest indian it is a very good movie starring sir anthony hopkins a highly inspirational film you will be compelled to purchase a lemon tree sapling and see a man about a dog on it every day for the rest of your life and you will be blessed with lemons the size of footballs. yes we ate the pee lemons.

This just in lemons enjoy being pissed on and it makes them grow bigger


Isn’t that due to urea? It’s in urine AND it’s also a common ingredient in fertilizers, right? Although it burns the plants if there’s too much of it, I think. If my dog pees on the lawn, it kind of burns out patches of grass unless you wash it away with water to dilute it; and then afterwards the grass in those areas is usually thicker. No idea why it would work especially well on lemons though.
Also I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for this wonderful post and congratulate on the photo.

the confession: It got on my nerves the way DA2 hyped up what a great legendary hero Hawke was every other line of dialogue when at best he was an errand boy chump being played like a fiddle by everyone around him. Not looking forward to the returning characters from DA2 wanking over how great and amazing Hawke was every conversation.

Well, yes, OP, the juxtaposition of Hawke’s legend to the rather more mundane reality, illustrating how history is more complex than Great Men doing Great things, was kind of the entire point of the narrative. 
Hawke was not a hero, she was just trying her best to manage in a situation that was far beyond her control. She couldn’t stop the war, she couldn’t save Kirkwall, and she couldn’t even save her family, but the whole situation is more or less laid at her feet because people gravitate to simplified hero/villain narratives.
When Varric talks up how super powerful awesome amazing Hawke is, he is deliberately lying.
On one hand of course everyone is entitled to their own reading of a text, but on the other it is incredibly frustrating to see this sort of thing being held up as like… an objective narrative flaw. It was a feature, not a bug.

THIS. 
And this is why I love DA2 far more than DA:O.

Zbigniew Herbert, “At the Gate of the Valley”

poem-locker:

After the rain of stars 
on the meadow of ashes
they all have gathered under the guard of angels

from a hill that survived 
the eye embraces 
the whole lowing two-legged herd

in truth they are not many 
counting even those who will come
from chronicles fables and the lives of the saints

but enough of these remarks 
let us lift our eyes 
to the throat of the valley 
from which comes a shout

after a loud whisper of explosion 
after a loud whisper of silence 
this voice resounds like a spring of living water 

it is we are told
a cry of mothers from whom children are taken 
since as it turns out
we shall be saved each one alone

the guardian angels are unmoved 
and let us grant they have a hard job

she begs
- hide me in your eye
in the palm of your hand in your arms 
we have always been together
you can’t abandon me 
now when I am dead and need tenderness

a higher ranking angel 
with a smile explains the misunderstanding

an old woman carries 
the corpse of a canary 
(all the animals died a little earlier) 
he was so nice - she says weeping - 
he understood everything 
and when I said to him 
her voice is lost in the general noise

even a lumberjack
whom one would never suspect of such things 
an old bowed fellow
catches to his breast an axe
- all my life she was mine 
she will be mine here too 
she nourished me there
she will nourish me here
nobody has the right
- he says -
I won’t give her up

those who as it seems
have obeyed the orders without pain 
go lowering their heads as a sign of consent 
but in their clenched fists they hide 
fragments of letters ribbons clippings of hair 
and photographs
which they naively think 
won’t be taken from them

so they appear 
a moment before 
the final division
of those gnashing their teeth 
from those singing psalms

Translated by Czeslaw Milosz and Peter Dale Scott.

You rule. 

So “I can’t see myself being with a woman ewwwwww” is considered a worthwhile contribution by at least one person on this planet. Fascinating.
