    [–] Most Nords think dragons were legends DarkPanda555 4 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in unexpectedskyrim

    Looks like an Ankylosaurus.

    It’s a Nodosaur, so I was pretty darn close.

    That’s not how the law works in a lot of countries. The law requires evidence of a lawful excuse for carrying an offensive weapon in many places.

    I wasn’t saying acting suspiciously, I was thinking more along the lines of possession of a weapon of offence in a public place/outraging public decency/public order offences.

    The US doesn’t really have these laws either to be fair due to the 1st & 2nd amendments.

    Still illegal in a lot of places even with the glove and ball if you’re not actually gonna play baseball.

    Edit: Love the uneducated hivemind downvotes

    [–] Virginia looking virus DarkPanda555 1 points ago in TheForest

    Technically this is a bacteriophage, not a virus, but either way they are admittedly not “technically” alive or not as there is no simple definition of the meaning, but there’s certainly not enough to define them as living in my opinion, certainly not the fact that host cells metabolism and produce them. They’re just genetic information contained in a bindsite 🤷‍♂️

    [–] Virginia looking virus DarkPanda555 3 points ago in TheForest

    Nah they’re not because they don’t fulfil any of the requirements of life other than reproduction, and even that is only fulfilled by use of an external host. They’re closer to metabolic byproduct than lifeform.

    It’s a longstanding topic of debate but no, they’re certainly not alive. Bruh.

    I have absolutely no idea either what the terminology would be, I could tell you knew what you were on about I just thought I’d expand in case anyone else wondered:)

    They also kill and replicate using archaea. They don’t have eggs or offspring as such, they are simply a protein casing that contains the genetic information to create more of their own protein casings.

    The reason they target specific cells is because their genetic information is specific to certain bacteria and archaea, and they can “override” the host cell’s genetic replication systems.

    The proteins responsible for replicating DNA and RNA within the host cell get tricked by the Bacteriophage’s DNA, and begin uncontrollably replicating it until there are (literally) thousands of Bacteriophages inside the host cell, until the host cell eventually bursts from the increasing pressure and the Bacteriophages are released to infect further.

    Bacteriophages/viruses are not technically a living thing, they’re more like a piece of dangerous code that contains the information to replicate itself. They require no food source, gasses, and have no senses or movement.

    I used to wanna work in biology and I remember meeting the people in the bioinformatics department:)

    Yeah that’s what I’m saying bro.

    [–] 9 Months Without You, King. DarkPanda555 5 points ago in XXXTENTACION

    Yh what the actual fuck😂 this kid knows his birthday is 9 months from when X died but he doesn’t know the date or that it was coming up? Smh😂
