    [–] How smooth this drawing is sweetcuppingcakes 19 points ago in oddlysatisfying

    Same, when flipping through channels as a kid I'd stop on Blues Clues sometimes just watch the simple little drawings. To this day I have no idea why it was so satisfying, but this gif reminded me of it.

    [–] Scorpion carrying her babies on her back sweetcuppingcakes 17 points ago in creepy

    Not sure how y'all can think this is creepy

    What's the part about yachts with tiny yachts inside mean? Is that a thing?

    [–] Brennan shreds Trump: ‘I am relieved that you will never have the opportunity to run for public office again’ sweetcuppingcakes 111 points ago in politics

    He literally tweeted most of the Narcissist's Prayer in the correct order.

    ...NO COLLUSION.

    That didn't happen.

    ...but even if it was, it was only a CIVIL CASE, like Obama's

    And if it did, it wasn't that bad

    ...but it was done correctly by a lawyer and there would not even be a fine

    And if it was, that's not a big deal

    Lawyer's liability if he made a mistake, not me

    And if it is, it's not my fault

    [–] Every cover of "Don't Worry Be Happy" starts with a lie. sweetcuppingcakes 5 points ago in Showerthoughts

    Why thank you! I heard a cover last night on a Pandora Christmas station (I don't get it either) and that line stuck out like a sore thumb to me.

    You make comics... you literally put the world in boxes

    [–] Is there anything you wish you knew when you started? sweetcuppingcakes 1 points ago in opus_magnum

    My number 1 rule is don't ever feel dumb. This game can be brutally difficult at first, but you will get it. Don't feel bad if you don't pick up on everything yourself. Take inspiration from this subreddit and YouTube. There are specific techniques and game mechanics that aren't always obvious to newcomers that I only learned after seeing lots of other people's solutions, and often having people here spell them out to me explicitly.

    Also, the "Fur Elise" solutions you see here are almost certainly not the creator's first tries. A lot of these people have probably spent hundreds of hours with the game, so you can't really compare your 3-note "Hot Crossed Buns" with that.

    I've been playing for two months and I still can't optimize some of the puzzles as much as the people here do. To hold yourself to that standard at the beginning will just lead to madness.

    Do your best, have fun, be proud of your creations, and never be afraid to share or ask for help. : )

    [–] Is there anything you wish you knew when you started? sweetcuppingcakes 2 points ago in opus_magnum

    This is exactly what I did. I went through the entire campaign, often struggling a lot, and made tons of really shitty solutions just to finish it and get to the end.

    Then the real fun started. I went back to the very beginning and have been doing every puzzle over again until I've optimized them three times: once for space, once for cost, and once for cycles.

    My main goal isn't to get the 100% best solution possible (though I still try if I get close and think I can!), but rather to just get into the top percentile, and only then do I move on to the next one.

    Sometimes it can take me days on just one puzzle! And sometimes I'll have to come to Reddit or YouTube for inspiration if I'm at a complete mental block. But it's incredibly satisfying once it's done and I get to move on.

    [–] Tillerson: Trump would ask me to do things I couldn't legally do sweetcuppingcakes 1 points ago in politics

    I respect that he's not a complete moron like the rest of them, and respect absolutely nothing else about the evil son of a bitch.

    [–] Rex Tillerson on Trump: ‘Undisciplined,’ ‘doesn’t like to read' and tries to do illegal things sweetcuppingcakes 2 points ago in politics

    Comments: Hi, please tell the Web Site that I was promoted to Cybersecurity Advisor despite having no experience in the field because of how smart I am. But make it sound more professional and humble or whatever. Thanks,

    [–] After two days of working on Surrender Flare, this unholy mess of arms is the best I can do. (21 cycles) sweetcuppingcakes 3 points ago in opus_magnum

    The most obvious place to shave a few cycles would be the bottom where I'm wasting cycles to position it to go into the bin, but it's been many hours and there is now steam coming from the top of my head.

    I'm able to easily move the bin to one side to skip that needless positioning cycle, but then the other side can't reach it and I have to use more cycles to move it over.

    Also, I know it's been done in 17, but screeeeeew that. : )
