I feel like an important element is missing.

Soldier:
Staff an anime event

General:
Executive at an anime event

I’m like a 3.5, so National Guardsman I guess. I have some figures and I like cosplaying and I have a tasteful anime sticker on my truck.

How do people who do 10+ hours of content at conventions rank?

Why do I have a feeling this chart is going to be a Wednesday episode topic for making the Geeknights version.

Twitter is finally banning the Nazis.

“Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarn storming, guerrilla knitting, kniffiti, urban knitting or graffiti knitting”

Why are so many names so militaristic? I’ve not heard “bombing” before, instead “urban knitting”. I guess “yarn” can also encompass crocheting, so it’s better that way, but why such violent imagery?

I assumed the etymology for bombing is derived from the street art use of bombing which definitely would have been seeded with more of that militaristic, rebellious sort of terminology.
