"Oh, what a cute little mouse!"
"It’s not a mouse! It’s a marsupial called an antechinus."
"Sorry, evolution, my mistake. Still cute, though."
"Isn’t he? And he’s excited, because he’s almost eleven months old, and that means he finally gets to start mating."
"Aw, that’s nice."
"He’s going to run around getting it on with as many females as he can for the next two or three weeks."
"And he’ll have sex with each of them for up to 14 hours at a stretch."
"And he’ll get so exhausted from all the frantic mating that his fur starts falling off, and he contracts gangrene."
"What? Jesus. Then does he take a break, at least?"
"Nah, not really. He basically keeps doing it until he gets so sick and stressed out that he dies. ‘Suicidal reproduction,’ I’m calling it.”
"Are you serious? He’s going to mate himself to death?”
"Yeah, but he doesn’t know it yet. Happy coming-of-age, antechinus!"
"You’re sick, you know that?"
im laughing why is this even buried deep inside windows programming
GUYS GO DO THE THING.
WHY IS THIS EVEN HERE?!
Can’t forget about flourish.mid and town.mid
that was a pleasant surprise
Oh my god what.
at first i thought it was music from an RPG game and I was like what is this even doing in my computer and then i kept listening and i- - -
fun fact: this is ‘buried’ inside in windows programming because they wanted a stock MIDI or .mid file present in windows for troubleshooting purposes, because no other files with the .mid extension were needed. back in 2001 or so when the ‘onestop’ file was first introduced on windows XP, viruses containing .mid files were commonly used to overwrite objects in the windows directory, and in operating systems prior, were very successful at destroying data due to the fact it was a kind of file windows was not built to recognize right off the bat. having that one stock .mid file was so windows computers could recognize the file without making a customer have to install a driver to do so. as to why its so funky, the world may never know
i knew a dude in college who kept an old Smirnoff bottle full of water on his desk and would casually chug straight out of it in the middle of conversations with new people in order to establish dominance
