IT TOOK ME TWO TIMES TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WAS GOING ON, HOLY FUCKING SHIT MY SIDES.
Dude, that’s basic science.
what? someone please explain.
Toast lands butter side down, cats land feet first, so taping buttered toast onto a cat would (supposedly) cause a gravitational paradox, creating infinite energy, which the scientist uses to power the world.
THIS IS IT. THIS SI WHAT I WAS EXPLAINING TO MY FRIENDS YESTERDAY. MADDIE LOOK. THE TOAST CAT THEORY.
The Smear, An Animation Technique
In 1942 the animated short The Dover Boys of Pimento University, directed by Chuck Jones, introduced the animation world to a whole new technique. Not only was The Dover Boys one of the first American animated films to break away from the “Disney look;” but it was also one of the first animations to utilize the smear (one of my favorite techniques to use).
The smear was first heavily used by legendary animator Chuck Jones. The technique is used to allow the moving object to move with a sudden burst of speed; often being depicted in a single frame of animation. Movement in animation is created by the use of key frames (the beginning and ending point of a smooth transition) and the in between frames (the frames in between the key frames that help create the illusion of motion).
Smearing takes away the idea of using two or three frames between two key frames; and instead allows the animator to use one quick motion rather in between key frames. Because of this, at the time of it’s creation, the process was often frowned upon and regarded as lazy. Warner Brothers especially found the technique very displeasing.
Warner Brothers, for quite some time, had always wanted to move away from the Disney look and style of animation that they and other studios had often depended on. Even though The Dover Boys was a big step in that direction they were still so displeased with the smear technique that they tried to fire Chuck Jones after it’s release. Warner Brothers, however, could not easily find a replacement for Jones so he was allowed to continue his work at the studio.
After The Dover Boys, Jones would still often use and rely upon the smear technique; and to this day animation professionals still depend on the technique to create quick transitions between key frames.
Below are some more stills of the smear at work. It’s pretty wacky stuff:

Ugh. Castlevania. Filthy casual.
AvaLynn was attacked by another student on the school playground. We are fighting for answers and for greater supervision at school.
My friend Lacey Harris’s 5 year old daughter was brutalized by another child on the playground at school this week, in Pascagoula, Mississippi. Her face is swollen and bruised beyond recognition, and the only thing the school can tell her is that they “are investigating”
This sweet little 5 year old girl is terrified to return to school. She is in pain and she has been MAIMED. This needs IMMEDIATE media attention. The school and local news are ignoring the mother’s and loved ones’ cries for help. This family needs justice for what has been done to their poor little angel, and not just to be swept under the rug, as the school district is attempting to do. PLEASE shine some light on this situation and force school administration and news media to get some answers!
The mother has started a GoFundMe page to request help for paying medical bills and legal fees, as it looks as though she’s going to have to pursue this route in order to get any justice at all for her little girl. Please, please, share this link on your page. Even if people are unable to donate, please just help us get the word out on what is going on with this poor family.
This is really heartbroken for me and extremely hard to look at.
This is the link to Ava’s donation page.
Please donate and share and PRAY!
God bless you all!
Please tag this shit. PLEASE.
God this sent pain in my gut.
