Do a google image search for "botfly larvae" and you might change your mind.

I never realised that ombrophobia was so controversial.

What's the deal with the human phobia of rain?

My meat is wrapped in oiled leather, essentially waterproof.

Is human meat wrapped in paper or suede or something?

Yes, blatant hemispherism.

Don't know much about these newfangled social things but I recall reading that Slack is like Discord:

Or try pasting with Shift+Ctrl+V to paste as plain text. Usually works on most places I've tried.

Half-arts, the product of miscegenation, corruption of the pure pixel art with the taint of lesser arts.

It's nothing to do with elitism. Plenty of shit art gets posted here (I've a whole gallery of evidence). It's about classification.

No one's saying that pixel-art-as-we-define-it is better than other-kind-of-art (though it is, obviously).

I'm all in favour of allowing pixel-ish art and pixel-allied as well, just classify it as such.

Little known fact: The reason they are known as Roll Playing Games is their use of rolled dice.

Never realized it had it, never even realized it had preferences (why are application preferences hidden under the image menu?).

For those who like pixelling with stylus: new Pro Motion release is AFAIK first proper pixel editor with stylus pressure support.

Always ensure you let your pizza cool sufficiently before becoming physically intimate with it. Burns in certain places can be quite awkward.

The ideal solution to a problem is to never have the problem in the first place.

Not hiding something and telling them to find it would work even better!

Alpha is fine so long as you don't make everything all smooshy, may-as-well-be-vector over-antialiased.

But alpha should never be used for lighting! Light just doesn't work that way. Should use addition (add extra light to already lit scene) or muliply (using lightmap for all lighting) blending for light.
