[FICTION] How the Hare Won (Post)
Dumb stuff I wrote a bunch of years ago
Once upon a time, there was a rabbit. Every week he would have a race with the tortoise, and every week the tortoise would win after the rabbit collapsed from exhaustion not far from the finish line. The rabbit eventually grew tired of all this. "Surely there's a way I can beat this stupid tortoise!" he said.

For years the rabbit's diet had consisted only of vegetables, in particular, carrots. But one morning, right before the big race, the rabbit was hopping down the road by Farmer Joe's farm. But this time, the rabbit noticed that Joe was growing a new, beautiful plant. The rabbit leaped over the fence, hoping to learn what this new plant was. A small sign was marked, "MARIJUANA." The rabbit nibbled on a couple of leaves.

"I've never tasted anything this good in my life!" the rabbit exclaimed. He then gobbled more leaves. A sense of well-being and strength flowed into him with each leaf he ate.

Suddenly, he noticed some migrant farm workers were staring at him and whispering something in Spanish. Afraid of being caught, the rabbit tucked a few leaves under his ears and sprinted away faster than he had ever gone before! And when he raced the tortoise later that day, the rabbit won easily.

From there on, the rabbit would always visit Farmer Joe's marijuana patch before each race. The rabbit never lost another race and eventually earned the nickname, "Hare Olympian of Potsfield County."

Transcribed exactly as originally written (aside from adding a few line breaks). I wrote this when I was 17 years old, and it remains the greatest thing I've ever written... unless it isn't.

Disclaimer: It should be noted that I did not use marijuana or performance-enhancing drugs then, and I don't use them now either. I don't really recommend using drugs to enhance your athletic performance!
Boring stuff about data privacy (Post)You probably don't care about any of this stuff. But in case you do...

Overview
To support forum functionality like posting topics, replies, and personal messages, this forum collects some basic user data. Don't worry - the amount of data we collect is very limited and can be removed upon user request.

Publicly-Visible Data
By registering an account, creating topics, or replying to other members' posts, some user data will be stored on the server. Some basic information is publicly visible - for example, the date and time of posts, account creation, and most recent login.

Publicly-Visible Data (User Control Panel)
Any personal information (such as your location, date of birth, gender, or contact information) is provided voluntarily and can be removed at any time without penalty (although if you don't list your birthday in your profile, it won't appear in the forum calendar).

Data Visible to Forum Staff
Forum staff members may have access to the IP address of each post and account registration. Forum admins can view the e-mail address that a member used to register for the forums. This information is not personally identifiable, and we rarely look at this information unless we're banning a spam account.

Personal Messaging
Personal messages (PMs) are visible only to the sender and recipient of the message. The Admin Control Panel does not include any way for staff members to view other members' messages. However, the contents of PMs are not encrypted. For this reason, we don't recommend using PMs to transmit highly confidential information (although it's not likely you'd be doing such a thing.)

Data Removal
If there's a piece of data you don't want to be on the server, please talk to an admin. While we can't remove an account altogether, we can remove any piece of data that you don't want to be stored on the server. Keep in mind that post data may still be retained by search engines or archives like the Wayback Machine even after it's deleted on the original forums.

Data Security
We take reasonable care to protect the confidentiality and integrity of user data by limiting the number of admins with access to private data.

The forum's server is located somewhere in the United States (as of today, New York). The exact location may be subject to change.

This is a nonprofit site, and we don't sell any user information for any reason.

Cookies
We use cookies to store login data. It's possible that other sites may be able to access data stored in cookies, but you can dump your cookies at any time.


(If some of this sounds familiar, there's a reason - it's almost the same as what I wrote for MFGG.)
Nite's art thread (Post)Not bad at all! It would be extra-cool if you could make the gem rotate, but that might not be feasible.
Nite's art thread (Post)I know it's probably not feasible to do this with the tools you used for this, but I'd love to see that one animated.

(You can get a similar effect by playing with the Hue tool.)
Nite's art thread (Post)Yeah. The colorful desert forest would be an awesome environment for a JRPG or a space shooter... or possibly an album cover.
Nite's art thread (Post)More fun stuff! I love the rainbow one. Also, it's cool to see new takes on Koholint Island fanart - I haven't seen anything quite like that before.

I was going to mention the broken link, but it seems you just fixed it.
Nite's art thread (Post)Quite a pretty place! Looks like the background of a postcard.

It would look even more spectacular if you increased the contrast and saturation a bit so that there's less fuzziness around the trees and the top of the sun. Maybe something like this, which I did with the Sharpen Landscape tool in Paint.NET.
Nite's art thread (Post)Are the flowers on the mountain a reference to something? They look familiar, but my brain is drawing a blank. Either way, I like the way they turned out.
Nite's art thread (Post)The "nature has reclaimed Bob-Omb Battlefield" theme would be a fun concept for a Super Mario 64 hack.
Nite's art thread (Post)It's nice to see you posting artsy things again.

These are pretty neat. They remind me of old video game backgrounds - and for good reason, considering that one of them is a scene from an old video game! I wonder how it would look if you did some more SM64 images.
