Friday Fun Stuff: Ding!  
coraa and jmpava convinced me to try out HabitRPG, it's one of those "gamification of real life" things that tries to get you to improve yourself in exchange for virtual rewards. And obviously this one is set up like an RPG.

So one of the "habits" (aka missions or quests or whatever you want to call them) i decided to add was writing more posts. So in order to gain exp and level up, here's a Friday Fun Stuff post!

Obviously, the first link is to HabitRPG itself, in case anyone else is interested :)
https://habitrpg.com

Next, someone put together a random Lady Knight generator and used it to create some awesome pictures of lady knights, who are not your standard anorexic, awkwardly posed, wearing as little armor as possible female warriors.

Here's the randomizer: http://dogbomber.tumblr.com/post/77216633474/its-no-secret-that-i-like-lady-knights-like-a

And here's (some of?) the art they did based on it: http://dogbomber.tumblr.com/post/80405578188/lets-draw-lady-knights-compiled-them-all-into-a

This one's a little old, but someone re-interpreted WW1 as a bar fight, and it's pretty amusing.

There are several different versions for WW2 which you can search for, though i didn't like most of them quite as much. (Perhaps because WW1 seems so much inherently stupider than WW2. Yes it was tragic how many people died, but at the political level there was much less inherent evil and maliciousness and much more nations just bumbling around with a 19th century mindset, not realizing that the nature of war had changed.)

And a couple older video links, This is an awesome animated short video about two girls exploring a Miyazaki style castle in the sky.

Another short video: this is a live action one about a janitor who stumbles across skynet they day before it's scheduled to go live. (So to speak.) I thought it was kind of predictable, but it was well done.

OMG! I just started using HabitRPG too, because I have been woefully off-task and really bad in general at getting things done and sticking to a daily routine. So I'm trying this combination of HabitRPG to motivate me to do tasks and dailies, to train out some bad habits, and then using some sort of project management website to keep me on task on my science project.

I have very little clue how HabitRPG is supposed to work, but if you want to put a party together or something together, please invite me? :D

Coraa set up the party i'm in right now. You can join us if you like :) Just email me your User ID (The GUID value, not your nick, from the top drop-down menu->Settings->API) and i can forward it to her, or maybe i can add you myself, i'll have to look and see :)

Here you go:

Would love an invite! I'm still at a woefully low level, but it would be fun to join something big so I don't feel like I'm playing by myself. :)

You have been invited! I think you need to go to the Party page and confirm now :)

That floating city animation is awesome and adorable!
The lady knights are great, too; I've seen those going around tumblr.
