Now if anyone wanted to pay me, that would be a different story. My current rate at my job is 16 euros per hour. So let's say my rate for art is 15 euros per hour. That hand drawing took me about 2 hours, so 30 euros. Some of my comics took me half an hour, so 7 euros. Kinda cheap. Now if you wanted to see artwork that is worth 150 euros, and looks like it, that would take me 10 hours to make. With my studies and responsibilities, and still leaving time for fun, I ain't got time for that.

If it's any consolation GD, I think it looked lovely. That being said, I'm with Ink on Pat just trying to make a joke and kinda botching the delivery.

Wait what?

GD I was actually just thinking yesterday that those tree hands you drew in the dream topic look really good and how much you've improved over the years.

But now I read further and apparently it was Pat. But I refuse to retract my compliment. So there.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

GD, please.  Pat made a joke that went wrong.  You're part of this community and we all want you to be here.

I am standing my ground on this. I did nothing wrong.

We absolutely want you here, GD. I'm sure maybe we want you a little less when you're acting like this, just like anyone would want to be around me less when I have my own issues. Please talk with us when and if you feel the need to. We're here for you, even if you disappear for a while and come back. We're gonna be here for you! <3

Nah, it's all good. I just came up with a solid way to bill my drawings if I ever need it. I mean my current job is only part-time so... who knows.

How ****ing hard is it for human beings to wipe the knife clean before switching to a different type of food or spread?

Why is there peanut butter in the jam jar? I'll tell you why. Because someone is a ****ing retard.

Friendly advice for you guys for the future: cutting a birthday cake? CLEAN THE ****ING KNIFE OFF AFTER EACH SLICE SO YOU AREN'T DEMOLISHING THE ICING WITH THAT EXTRA HALF-INCH OF STUCK-ON CAKE THAT HAS SURROUNDED YOUR KNIFE.

There's an ad they've been playing for a while on a local radio station.  One of the dj's talks about how much she loves candy, and that she's always sneaking some and she knows it's a bad habit.  Which is why she's so glad that she could pick up some new candy flavored liquid at the local vape shop.

**** everyone involved in this.  Selling nicotine as candy should be illegal and whatever regulatory or legislative body that's relevant is negligent in not cracking down on vaping sooner.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Yeah. Interesting.

Is it any worse then candy itself being peddled to kids? Like, is vaping as dangerous as sugar?
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I'm pretty sure sweet tarts aren't going to lead into lung cancer.

Hm, but it can lead to obesity and diabetes, is addictive and readily accessible.

Has vaping been shown to increase cancer risks?

IDK why I'm defending vaping g I just find it interesting you're mad at this instance of advertising and not others

Because I deeply hate tobacco and vaping is the same crap in a shiny new unregulated package.  Selling it as a way to cut back on or replace cigarettes is one thing.  Selling it as a healthy alternative to candy is garbage.  Flavored tobacco was banned because it was seen as marketing it to kids.  As soon as vaping cropped up, the marketing for it started doing every single thing that has been banned for tobacco over the years, shy of a cartoon mascot.

And the worst part is that these "vape companies" are generally subsidiaries of the existing tobacco companies.
