thousand yard stare [thow-zund-yard-stehr]
1. A phrase coined to describe the empty, blank, unfocused gaze of a battle-weary soldier, but the symptom is also found in and used to describe other victims of trauma.
EX. Check out the newest episode of the Game Grumps's Pokémon Fire Red series that, due to footage being lost, was animated by linzb0t; in which, Egoraptor describes a Lt. Surge's Pikachu being shell-shocked by the Pokémon war described in-game and by fans and having the thousand yard stare. That is perhaps the most adorably tragic thousand yard stare imaginable.

1. To separate into parts, disassemble, or break-up; deterioroate.
2. To reduce something into particles, fragments, or parts.
EX. I know he has already been out for a couple weeks, but I still think I'd like to talk about one of my new favorite champs, Vel'Koz the Eye of the Void.
Malzahar) and Vel'Koz is an interest spin on the concept.
Lissandra but we do know he is from the Void. Unlike the other Voidborn, his concerns seem to be, rather than based on consuming matter, consuming knowledge. Vel'Koz enters Runeterra and the first thing he does is shoot a laser at a small animal, disintegrating instantly, and move onto more interesting subjects for observation. Vel'Koz learns through destruction and he certainly can learn a lot about Runeterra on the Summoner's Rift by destroying the other champions. But... what are his tools of destruction?
P.S. I love how his alt skin was previewed in Lucien's alt skin art and Creator Viktor's art.

Most Game Grumps animations manage to get across the humor of the Grumps via animating their dialogue or the gameplay they were playing as they narrated. Occasionally, the animation transcends the original context of the moment and, not only makes sweet love to my eyeballs, but makes sweet love to brain.
When I see something like that... INSTA-SUBSCRIBE!
Thank you, TheArtistKnownAsSIR! More Wolfjob.
On a related note, if I were to record myself playing a Pokémon emulator and attempt some sort of Nuzlocke challenge, which game/emulator should it be? I have a slight preference for Yellow or Emerald, but I'm totes up for some suggestions.
The joke is boobs.

1. The world, or universe, organized into an ordered system.
2. A complete, orderly, and harmonious system.
3. Order; harmony.
4. A tropical American plant of the genus Cosmos cultivated for their brightly colored flowers.
EX. Observing and considering the cosmos can make you feel small; after all, what is a man to the world? What is a planet to a star? What is a star to a galaxy? What is a galaxy to a universe? What is any finite object or objects observable compare to the seemingly infinite? Can one person, one finite observer, ever begin to comprehend the cosmos?
Many people are afraid to think about the immense reality the cosmos because it makes them feel small. But I don't concern myself with feeling small. I feel like, rather than being part of something small, rather than being part of something finite, and rather than there being a clear end of the discoveries to discover in sight, that we are all part of something infinite. And that may be intimidating, but it is also compelling.
So, join Neil deGrasse Tyson on the infinite journey of human discovery and keep moving toward the horizon. There is no end to the journey, but there are many discoveries. Life doesn't "end". It "ands".

Sometimes what America needs is the sort of hero that is simultaneously a robot and simultaneously a horse and simultaneously a cyborg and simultaneously a good caretaker of infants.
Sometimes we need a robohorse. Correct?
Then we've got the newest single from Ninja Sex Party.
This video has a lot of things that I'm sure you're looking for in a music video: dragon-slaying Danny Sexbangs, girls with pink hair, guys in dragon & unicorn onesies, Ninja Brians, Dragon Dances, Jewish weddings, and even the Manticore.
Fun fact: Ninja Brian is a theoretical physicist specializing in string theory and supersymmetry when not running around and killing people around Dan. Seriously.
I've been playing as much League as I can lately cuz I want to build up my character roster a little bit before working to force my position in ranked. I'm shooting for Silver, since my previous best was Bronze 1, but need to crystallize the position I want to play most in ranked. I've been playing a lot of Jungle lately, so I might play Jungle solo, and I've been experimenting with a bunch of different supports, including Zac.
As always, I'll keep you updated.
