The rules of this contest are simple

  • Write a funny question as an answer to this post. Put the title of that question following a #.

  • You may use plays on words, you may make fun of noobs, regular users, or smart users.

  • You may pretty much use any method you want to make your question funny.

  • The winner will be decided based on who has the most up votes.

  • Downvotes are Not Counted When determing the winner, so save your daily votes. (you only get 40)

  • Although I highly doubt there are any five-year-olds on this site, we must use the same rule from the previous image contests, and keep the entries "Politically Correct" .

  • This is the second time this event has run. You may NOT copy entries from that event and post them here. Mostly/Entirely original content is recommended.

  • The main point is to create a question that other users will see funny.

  • The winner will be chosen and his/her/its entry will be accepted. The link to that entry will be placed in the space below, along with the entries that almost won.

  • The winner will be chosen on September 27th. Other entries are welcome after that, but the winners entree will stay accepted (even if new entries gain more upvotes).


- You may enter no more than twice.

However, only one entree can obtain first place. (Obviously)

WINNER AS OF 9-27-2015

First Place -Gandalf3 6 votes

Second Place -Gandalf3 5 votes

Third Place -GiantCowFilms 4 votes

This post is not "off-topic," as it has already run once without objection, and the results were fantastic.

    $\begingroup$ I suggest that we wait until the deadline of the contest to allow voting, then have a 2-3 day "voting period". Otherwise, as kind of happened last time, the first entries will have a huge advantage. $\endgroup$

I saw this story made in MS paint, how to do it in blender?

One fine day the colorful hills of Stackexchangia were just as calm and peaceful as always.

image of explosions in an otherwise peaceful setting

Tardises were making, Novices were disguising, X was 27, and the M.O.D. team was still busy deciding the meaning of their acronym.

All was right in this corner of interland.. Until there came a disturbance. Something unusual. Something uncanny. Some thing which did not quite have a definition. No one knew what this thing might be.

Upon consulting their ancient storehouses of knowledge and wisdom handed down through many external sources, they discovered that the thing had a name. Many broken hyperlinks ago in an ip range far away, this long lost and forgotten thing was known as an "overused joke".

Long they debated what to do next. The guy with the funny hat said
"Why, this be thine kitchen implement"!
The XL cow said
"Perhaps beating it with a hammer will help"?

Eventually they set out on a quest to find The Answer, hidden somewhere in the vast wide wonderful world of interland. Adventuring long and far, they encountered many things strange to behold.

To this day they have yet to find The Answer; but continue searching just in case 13,478 isn't enough.

I wasn't sure where to start, so I tried using this on it. Now it looks better:

    $\begingroup$ I like how everyone goes off in a boat when they've got a WORKING TARDIS with them. It's much more comfortable. Would you rather be in a small boat, or a huge TARDIS that can travel through time and space at the click of a button. It's a no brainer really. $\endgroup$ Sep 28, 2015 at 15:49

How to do simple thing: Select cube?

How can I select a cube in blender? I'm so leet I think minimalist answers are cool! Its called efficiency.

enter image description here

enter image description here


You use LMB. I totally new that, I'm just trying to get an extra 55 rep from my bros in chatz!. (where else do you think I got all that reps) Yah, yah, I know nobody will actually find this useful, but its within the rules! (not bother to link, only noobs don't know where that meta post is)

  • 9
    $\begingroup$ I'm sorry, but you're wrong. You use RMB to select! Unless you're stupid (like me) and decide to change it to LMB which doesn't make any sense cause it's not like everything else uses that. $\endgroup$ Sep 23, 2015 at 22:29
  • $\begingroup$ @TARDISMaker Oh lolz... I'm so pro I use blender left-handed with a single button mouse! So there is only a Left-mouse, button. Duh you newbs... $\endgroup$ Sep 23, 2015 at 23:02

Help Using Blender

Sorry for the noob question...

I have been trying to use my blender for a while now...

I've got some of the functions straight, but it's all so complicated to me...

I cannot seem to figure out how to utilize the bake functionality.

When trying to move things around the slowest I can get is still too fast for me. Can the speed settings be more flexible?

Also, the minute I start it up everything gets all messed up, I can't create fine animation.

Hope someone can help me here, it seems instead of a mesh I just have everything mushed up...

If it helps, my version of the tool:

Blender StackExchange needs a better class of criminal...

And I'm going to give it to them!

Just look at this... GiantCowFilms. Broke one rule by writing three questions. He was only allowed two, so added one to it! Then he read this post and deleted one! I'm tellin ya, if you're gonna break the rules, go all the way. Don't attack the earths core, attack china! If you fail, at least you'll be half way between the earths core and china so you can at least choose which one would be more worth while to capture for next time.


Help with tutorial

HELP i have some problem!

Meta Note: These are all quotes of this guy generated by this spam bot, enjoy.

The active object is a lattice. It does the exact same thing as shining a laser towards each of the key combinations to invert the child of constraint. Is that you should not have any modifiers or simpler way to make a shape would be to look at your entire model.

In this gif I think it works quite well in Camera view NumPad 0. Then check the Keep Original Resolution check box in the Batch Converter settings in the image below on each of the tool shelf. I prefer the image below both the cube and color mix has the advantage of the key combinations to invert the Normalize node. Add a Normal Map node. Another option is to use any means of changing the frame. You can use any means that Blender can be used commercially by artists, by studios to make animation films or vfx, by game.

The list of objects that are near, and sets the message actuator's "To:" field to one of the objects. That is the frame number in the manual after specifying the target as the active object (the curve). It sets a Object parent, with a Combine XYZ node. The parent bone will not effect the four methods explained above. For a Separate RGB node. Then the magic happens: That function starts the ray at the radar object can see it, if some of the other color operations will. You need to create a mask is in the bottom socket, or Groups The license must not discriminate against any person or group of that large list, there really only available when the active object is animated. Your second problem was the "visible" objects, I'm checking that a Lattice modifier to the board object. You needed the Action actuator on.

If statements works like this: anything you will ever really need for blender. Your three main choices are near, and sets the message actuator's field to one of the Mouse Actuator, set to Look that disables Global Undo). However there are a two shaders the opaque (Diffuse node), and then the transparent (Glass node), then a way to mix has the advantage of not returning a darker result than either image, like some of the other color ramp is the mask. Plug that the properties window runs bpy.context.object.parent = None for poly in plane.data.polygons: center is where I'm rotation the view, and where Lock Camera To View X axis (or accessible via the Bezier Circle (added in step 3). Also set the Object of the radar sensor, so the two will display the changed image in the cause of your problem. There is no confusion with the active object.

Thanks in advance.

    $\begingroup$ I perfectly under stood that. The solution is quite simple. However, I cannot write it from my iPhone and will be moving to central Africa tomorrow where there is no internet. Sorry, but I do know the answer. $\endgroup$ Sep 28, 2015 at 0:17
