How tf do I finish this-
me, waking up to a shitton of messages yelling "PLUTO WAKE YOUR SIMPING, STUPID ASS UP, ITTO TEASER DROPPED, WAKEY WAKEY MOTHERFUCKER!"
not to make a hot take but i think its inchresting how somehow people went from ‘you should uplift autistic people’ to ‘if an autistic person is annoying me by talking about their interests i should be allowed to publicly dunk on them for no reason other than being ‘annoying’’
it's very rad to make ocs overpowered actually
rip to everyone else but i'm not boring
In response to this ask but it got hella away from me and didn’t fit the tone anymore so I split it up! I put too much googling into this to not post it.
I'm having a stressful time at work and I’m compensating by overdoing it with amateur speculation about food production on fake!homesteads. I’m about to go Deeper than I probably should, and I have only the barest bones of an idea of what I’m talking about, so if that's not what you're here for, Get Out Now. Save Yourself.

okay so I wrote out everyone I could remember living in Kyrimorut and got about 15 full-time residents (I originally forgot Kad so take this number with a grain of salt). There are like, five or eight-ish more I added on a separate list with question marks because I’m not sure what their status is exactly. Ny is on that list because while she’s definitely moving toward full-time resident, she still lives on her ship when planetside and might be providing most of her own food if not explicitly invited inside for a meal? Maze is also on that list, because he’s fucking Schrodinger’s Alpha ARC after he arrives, but Zey is still around so Maze might be, too? Levet and Yayax are also on it, because I think they take off on their own at some point, but it seems like they’re still handling most of the actual farming part of things, so they’re probably still all eating from the same food source? (Or they’re all eating from Levet’s food source, actually. Freeloaders.)
Anyway, I put the ‘needs to eat’ population of Kyrimorut as anywhere from 15 to 20-ish people at any given point in time, and they’re planning on more.
That is a lot of mouths to feed, even before you account for the enhanced caloric needs of the clones. Even if the clan cuts back heavily on meat meals, they're going to be hurting for every scrap of food they can get.
I’ve never actually had to put numbers to it, so a casual google search looking for government and educational websites and comparing all of them says an (one) (1) average adult person across the UK, Europe (Germany, Italy, France), New Zealand, and USA will eat about 150-250 pounds of meat a year. Dial it to the lower end to account for their limited stock, then back to the higher end to account for their calorie requirements. If they go under that, say, maybe 100 pounds per person, it’ll likely be to make their stores stretch, not to lessen the number of animals they need to slaughter. And either way, that’s a hell of a lot of food, and the lack would need to be made up for from their own fields anyway.
Perusing every farmer’s advice website I could find on page 1 and 2 of Google says you can expect to maybe get about 120-140 pounds of meat (maybe less, maybe more) from every feeder pig. They’re not going to just be getting their meat from their roba, but they don’t exactly have bantha roaming around yet either, so I’d bet the roba are their primary source of meat at the moment. The space pigs will probably be the ones weathering the bulk of the burden in stocking the larder for the year. Looking at that, I’m not even 100% positive they have enough animals in the book to successfully feed everyone they already have anytime soon, much less all the people they’re expecting. Even if the cure lessens their calorie needs, the newcomers won’t have that cure, and Kyrimorut still volunteered to feed them. I’m not sure they can afford not to eat the roba this year - or the next, probably.
Ny had to go get groceries for a reason.
I mean, I’m sure this is all plenty doable, it’s just that it’ll take a long time to get there, both in terms of general establishment, giving themselves that wiggle room, and learning the ropes themselves? Like. More than enough time for some of their fuck-ups to draw unwanted attention straight to them. The garrison is right there.
Kyrimorut's goal is self-sustainability for that reason, but that also makes their job way harder. They're essentially trying to go full, off-the-grid, tinfoil hat survivalist-level homestead, with the goal of minimizing supply lines that could lead straight back to them (which...already kind of fucked that up, guys, but you do you). Trying to do that the first year was a pipe dream, honestly. They want to eventually be able to produce all of their own food and, depending on how deep they want to go, and how far off the radar, possibly even the feed for their stock? On TOP of what they need for themselves? (Yikes, RIP.) Which means every animal alive is also a mouth to be fed, and if they're feeding them primarily off, say, surplus from their fields, that creates a risky gamble if they don't manage to produce enough surplus. And even if they're not being brought up as feeders anymore, pigs aren't exactly light eaters (plant energy burns off VERY fast and pigs use a LOT of energy), and I imagine their fantasy space counterparts aren't much different. What if they have a bad year next year? They can certainly pay for it, but that erases the point of being off the grid in the first place, so it’s not actually an ideal solution.
Assuming Ordo keeps just this litter as pets, and accounting that not all the roba will be slaughtered (that would be hell when you have no roba left to make new roba), that’s a lot of resources going in with nothing coming back out anytime soon, or at all. And there will still be roba being raised up as feeders, and they will need INCREDIBLE AMOUNTS OF FOOD. Foraging isn’t going to cover it, not for the number of roba they have and their relative amounts of land, not unless they, like, stage a hostile takeover of a reasonably distanced mandalorian space!acorn grove or something. So most of your feed will have to go to that, and that’s...*double checks google* what 600+ pounds of it per feeder roba on the low end? Reminder that they’re still feeding themselves from those same fields, and if they’re eating less meat that requires several times more pounds of plant food than the meat they gave up to compensate?
WHERE IS ALL THIS FARMING LAND, ANYWAY? They almost never talk about it in the books? I know it exists because Ordo mentioned their crops one time, but I feel like they should be...talking about this more in the books? Aware of it? Stressing about it, maybe. I know Levet’s got something in the works, but he’s one man with a book, and I’m worried.
...Also, I hope Kal is fucking paying Levet? The man seems like he’s carrying this whole-ass homestead thing on his back and he never even really volunteered.
SPEAKING OF. Kal. KAL. I understand you were never a farmer and this is a learning experience for you too, but how the FUCK were you expecting this to work???
He should have been getting this place established YEARS ago lol. Like, not just having the bunker built, established. He knew he wanted to do something like this for forever, so it’s not like he got shoved into the super-secret-hidden-farm life ass over teakettle. He knew he wanted this! He could have prepared better! Now he’s trying to run a fucking underground railroad with a blazing neon sign over the place while they fuck up self-sustainability like every other self-respecting brand new farm owner. Ny had to go get groceries from Coruscant. CORUSCANT. That is just...Amazing. I find everything hilarious, but I find that extremely so.
*wipes away tear*
What the hell were the six P’s again, Kal?
News to anyone who’s read me ramble before, probably, but I’m not actually that upset with Kal about this. I personally like it when his lifetime of being essentially a city boy street rat-turned-gangster leads to him making perfectly normal fuck ups like this. I have the feeling Munin didn’t really do the homesteader thing, so Kal was probably constantly on campaign or something. Meaning we get this:
Kal, city boy: How hard can farming be? You put some seeds in the ground, you kill a couple animals. I’ve hunted before. I’ve done some of the Camping. Easy-peasy.
Kal, faced with Reality: ...oh
Most honest fuck-up Kal has ever made.
Question, though. Do you think he realizes how close this whole thing is to falling down around his ears? Do you think he knows? I bet Levet knows. Nerves of steel, that man.
(Anyway, this is hilarious to me. Thank you so much, anon, who is no longer attached to this post, but who spawned it anyway. I had fun :) )
(basically just how i'm feeling right after finishing the season for the first time)
okay so Centaurworld season 2 left a weird, bittersweet feeling in me.. and idk why exactly.. i liked it, a LOT, i can even say i loved it. it was amazing, powerful, fun, stupid and weird, yet deep and dark, and mature, and the songs are amazing yet again, and the story pretty much goes full circle.. BUT.. i kinda feel like something's missing? idk. maybe it's just that i was expecting this to be a "middle season" and have a third one be the big finale? maybe that's it.
idk. but i feel.. not as fulfilled as i normally feel with finales?
still, INCREDIBLE SHOW! probably the biggest surprise lately. it's fkin amazing!
PLEASE GO WATCH CENTAURWORLD! IT IS SO SO SOO WORTH IT! PLEASE!
I actually think it’s super awesome how the gallery is steadily becoming irrelevant and insolvent. I mean, whatever replaces it will definitely also be exploitative and bereft and pointedly exclude people with interesting and subversive things to say, but hey... At least the decades upon decades where some group of millionaires and billionaires artificially prolong the relevance of ab-ex and “conceptual art” for the sake of an elaborate money laundering scheme basically divorced from the form and content of the art and to the general detriment of everyone involved will soon draw to a close.
ok I think my friendship with bleach is ending soon :(
i really really wanna move out and have my own budget so that i can eat vegan
[ THIRSTGIVING — dejwrites 1k followers event ] WEEK 5, DAY 3 — BENIMARU SHINMON ( SPANKING. ) ( audio cred. )
A LOW YELP ESCAPED [Y/N]'S LIPS BEFORE HER HANDS WENT TO COVER HER MOUTH. Her own lipgloss stained the inside of her palm as she let out a whimper. You could feel the temporary stinging pain from the delicate flesh on your bottom, but the coolness in Benimaru's quarters help soothe it with a quickness. Your hand finally fell down as tears decorated your lash line as you squirmed under Benimaru's touch.
"You've lost count," Benimaru firmly said as his large hands massaged the soft flesh on your exposed asscheeks. The soft gesture of him caressing your ass cheeks that he previously was slapping at caused butterflies to flutter around the pit of your stomach. Relaxing against Benimaru's touch once again to respond.
"Sorry Waka," You whimpered out before feeling his large hand slap at your bottom once again. "One." You squealed out.
Each spank upon your asscheeks caused you to grow wet in between your thighs, if you concentrated you could even feel your own juices sticking to the inside of your thighs. Benimaru was back massaging your bottom with his firm hands that once spritz out flames. Goosebumps decorated your skin when you felt the pad of his digits rub at your puffy lips, your juices decorating his fingers with ease.
"You really get so wet when I'm spanking you , huh?"
