Poot

The preview image may be fuckeded, if so just click the damn thing. Also, it's probably too slow. Photoshoooop seems to want to make it slow, and I can't be arsed to fix it right now. Sosumi.

UPDATE: Substance came to the rescue.

  1. In The GIMP there's an automated routine that prevents quick timing in huge files...so it tried to prevent me from adjusting the milliseconds.

    I squashed the image down and it's actually kind of satisfying...the sizing routine is imperfect and makes your guy look more "live".

    1. Yes, that's how it's s'posed to look!

      I guess it makes sense that there are limits on speed, it'd just be nice if the export settings told you that when you saved it.

      Thanks, I'm gonna update the post to use your version until I can get mine fixed up.

    2. The sizing I used is my standard size to fit my column width...yours is wider. Also I dropped every third squirrel frame.

    3. I had tried dropping half the squirrel frames but the speed stayed constant. It makes sense that the source size causes issues.

    4. dropping squirrels seems like a good idea. say, from a fifth floor window...

    5. Terminal velocity of a free-falling skwirl is enough for bruising and disorientation but not terminal effect. We test these things.

    6. That's fine. I am OK with torturing the nut-munching bastards.

  2. See, this is why mikey is right: you need armor-penetrating squirrels.

    1. Those kinds of ideas are why I hate you, thndr.

      You're really a mole for the Military-industrial-rodent complex, aren't you?

    2. Moles are Eulipotyphla, not Rodentia.

  3. I don't want to nitpick or anything on the wonderful job you did here, but the soldier's cheeks (I mean the ones on his face) need to do a Dizzy Gelespie just before the squirrel shoots out.

    1. Yeah, they really do. I think I probably need to do a "real" video version -- with appropriate "poot" sound, and put it on the ute oob.

  4. THANK GOD FOR THE INTERNET.

    I am so glad we are putting all this computing power to important uses.

    1. The world is happy that we're firing squirrels out of bassoons. After all, we could be doing porn like the rest of the internets.
