it seems to be especially tempting when beginning a piece & there isn't any context yet, so you want to pack as much incidental setting stuff into every sentence
wondering if it wouldn't be better to start with an intro, like
"by the way, everyone here has green fur and horns"
instead of working how green the fur is into the first person's dialogue
is it actually *bad* writing to give every noun an adjective and every verb an adverb?
is it merely a style, that some people might prefer or disprefer?
is it "low status" because it's not how authors who can afford editors write? and how amateur writers often do? (me, I write like that sometimes)
does it grate on me because I'm not used to it, because I personally prefer terser writing, or because it's different from what I've been taught is good writing?

@lorxus I'm not convinced a loop 2x around a hole doesn't deform to a 1x loop?
if g(t) [0, 1] —> unit circle = <2pi*t, 1>
g + g = h(t) = 4pi*t
k(t, s) : [0, 1] × [0, 1] —> unit circle =
let p(s) : [0, 1] —> [1/2, 1] = (s + 1)/2
t =< 1/p : 2pi*t/p
1/p < t : 2pi + 2pi*(t - p)/(1 - p)
k(t, 0) =
t =< 1/2 : 4pi*t
1/2 < t : 2pi + 4pi*(t - 1/2) = 4pi*t
k(t, 0.8) =
t =< 0.9 : 10/9*2pi*t
t > 0.9 : 2pi + 20pi*(t - 0.9)
k(t, 0.98) =
t =< 0.99 : 100/99*2pi*t
t > 0.99 : 2pi + 200pi*(t - 0.99)

there's some shooting gallery / clay pigeon type games on it too; in the normal modes, I tended to be slightly behind my brother, but in the 'shooter' modes I'd have double and triple his score
played the (old) wii game 'Boom Blox' with the family last night, simple physics-based fun (main mode is motion-control jenga, there's also modes involving throwing balls at things)
there was an accessibility issue in that my brother couldn't do the arm/wrist motion to throw things hard enough, and trying hurt his wrist but other than that pretty good?
blender question; stack exchange link
I'm having a very difficult time getting blender's driver system to update variables & properties. I figured I'd share the link to the stack exchange question I wrote here, in case anyone here has the time to look at it!
poll for plural system members
How comfortable do you think you would be answering the well-intentioned question of "how many of you are there?"
Particularly in the (hypothetical, if you haven't) context of having just come out to a singlet.
We chose multi-choice to support system members who share an account, pls just pick one if u can!
(Replies / elaborations welcome and may not get a response; depends on our capacity.)
