it’ll never fail to amaze me that chessex, the game dice company - like if you bought your first dice set from a game store/comic shop/card shop you most certainly bought a chessex set - has such an ugly and poorly designed website. it looks like they went out of business 15 years ago.
i don’t know what’s better, the fact that they only sell five different things and felt like they needed a site map, the single uk location with the giant union jack, or simply the times new roman header which reads:
“The coolest dice on the planet.” ™
THEY HAVEN’T UPDATED THEIR WEBSITE IN TEN YEARS????
my mistake, literally every single page you click on has a different copyright date. so far I’ve seen 2001, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, and most recently 2012. amazing. well done chessex.
HAVE YOU SEEN WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TRY TO ORDER DICE?????
you….you have to email them your order form. oh, gods. you…have to type your credit card information. into an email. so they can charge you seven dollars in shipping or 7% of the total order cost if it’s over $100. fuck. if you have questions about the cost of air shipping, you can fax them anytime. jesus christ. oh gods. fuck. fuck me up. chessex. the coolest dice on the planet. ™
this is another reason why I let my friendly local store make my chessex orders for me

The best part is that this is literally by design
oh my god
When I was little more than a boy I sent a book I had written to Roald Dahl, hoping he would read it and tell me if I was any good or not. He never replied. As an elderly overworked writer, my sympathies are all with Roald Dahl. And I think, what if he’d said no? Would that have been so discouraging that I would have stopped? And if he’d said yes, what then?
And the one thing I have learned over the years is it’s not ever as much about being a good writer as it is about being a persistent writer.
- In 20 years, filmmakers will be making period pieces set in the early 2000s with over-exaggerated aspects of that era, such as frosted tips, striped polos, shark teeth necklaces and blasting Sum 41 all the time
Are you implying that the 2000’s era wasn’t aggressively doing all of these things
we are already living in the cyberpunk future and i know this because within a span of 3 days we went from this tweet:
to thousands of people making phony images and replying to them with their passionate desire to have them as a tshirt to overload the bots with nonsense and junk and send out warnings to shoppers like this:
and now we even have people replying to pictures of baby yoda with “i want this on a tshirt” knowing how ravenous disney is being with copyright in hopes to get the stores taken down altogether
i dont know what it is about stuff like this and the whole turn mei into a symbol of hk protesters thing but, its really reassuring for some reason
I’m fucking screaming
