I remember reading in a book that the strain of bacteriaresponsible for the Black Death may have originated in marmots (which carry the disease today).

Looking that up to verify it, I found that there was recently an incident in China where a man contracted the plague from a marmot. If anyone reading this has any occasion to be in contact with marmots, um, be really, really careful.

Also be careful with prairie dogs and some squirrels. They can carry plague too. Household pets picking up fleas from infected animals and bringing them home to you is definitely a thing that is possible, so keep that in mind if you live in an area where the disease is endemic. 

And here’s some information on antibiotic resistance and why it’s a big problem and how you can help it not happen so much maybe!

(Note: There are many other serious diseases that rats and other rodents can carry, such as hantavirus. This cartoon is not meant to be taken seriously or say true things about things.)

It seems to be a Vector based program, much like Illustrator or Adobe Flash. For followers who are not aware, Photoshop works in Pixels rather then Vectors.

/!\ EDIT: Followers should be made aware of the following.
I have just been made aware that ClipStudio is apparently… the exact same program as Manga Studio 5/Ex. The only difference is that CSP is the digital download and MS5 is the physical copy. It has recently changed to this and is VERY misleading and has caused a number of people to purchase a program they already own. It’s more noticeable on the Smith Micro website where both “versions” are offered. Those who are still in doubt should definitely try the demo prior to purchase.”
- An anon dropped this information in our inbox.
Thank you for the information

(is that why the lines in MS5 look so good? I did not know)

Anyway, hey everyone, Manga Studio 5/CSP is/are the best drawing program I’ve used, I highly recommend this.

I made some new gifs because the parts that were supposed to be dark gray looked pitch black on my iPod screen, meaning that if your screen settings aren’t exactly like my laptop’s you saw only a silhouette with eyes, a scarf and a few red accents. It still might not be light enough to make out the face details on all screens…

Hey everyone, EmoFuri isn’t too happy if you give it a character without a neck… or hair… or shoulders… or head that is at all separated from the body… or anything
