Más frío que nalga de foca.

Translation: Colder than a seal’s butt-cheek, meaning something is very cold.

Example: Nestor was going to ride his bike to school today, but he decided against it because it was colder than a seal’s butt-cheek.

vagina’s are able to stretch wide enough to give birth to a fucking baby and then return to it’s original size but of course being penetrated by that grass blade you call a penis is what’s going to make it “loose”

Uhh. The baby doesnt come out of where the penis goes in…

Anónimo ha dicho: I'm trying to develop the city where my fictional story will take place. Do you have any resources for city planning, or different types of cities and architecture in different climates and cultures--or really anything about creating a city?

I’ve done posts on Arctic citiesunderground cities, and old cities.

City Planning

Planned vs. Unplanned

Geography

Most cities are near a large body of water. The water supplies the city’s inhabitants and takes away waste. The older the city, the more likely it is to be on the water. If the city is not near water (Las Vegas) or has insufficient water (Ancient Rome), it must be brought in via aqueducts, pipes, etc. A city on the coast will have salt treatment facilities, pipe water in from freshwater springs, or exclusively non-water beverages (fermented drinks, milk, etc.)

If a city is hilly, the most important people/most important buildings will probably be on the tops of the tallest hills. The hills will have names. A city on flat land will be easier to build on. A city built on swampy land (Venice, Chicago, St. Petersburg) will need to deal with the heavy buildings sinking into the muck. A drainage system or levies may need to be constructed to keep the water out of the city.

Climate

Before the great and glorious invention of affordable air conditioning, cities in hot or mild climates tended to have more open floor plans, like holes in the ceiling and open gardens within their house. There wasn’t a need to keep air inside the house, where it usually became hotter. Precipitation (chiefly rain) would have been a seasonal or occasional problem. Cities in the mountains or in cold climates do not have open floor plans. The windows are small to prevent heat from escaping. There is a minimum of doorways. All entrances to the house are covered to prevent wind, snow, or sleet from coming in.

Buildings in cold areas need slanted or onion-shaped roofs to displace the weight of the accumulating winter snow. Buildings in hot areas can have flat roofs because the weight of snow isn’t a problem. (Also, you could sleep on a flat roof.) Many buildings in cold-climate cities today have flat roofs, but it is a problem your construction crews should be aware of.

People

Much of a city’s “character” - including names, architecture, areas of interest, city stereotypes, sports teams, and so on - comes from the people who settled it. You will need to do a historical background before you name or build anything. It doesn’t need to be lengthy. Just list out what ethnic groups settled in the city and who has ruled the city over its history. For example, the city had a large influx of Greek settlers, so many of the older streets have Greek influences. The recent emigration of Indians will not have as large an impact because they haven’t been established as long. Let’s say for the last two hundred years, the city has been ruled by an Indonesian government. The new architecture - especially government buildings - in the city will look Indonesian. The Indonesian buildings will go up alongside Georgian-looking buildings from when the British controlled the city and Chinese-looking buildings from when the Chinese controlled the city. Since the city was largely influenced by Greeks, Indonesians, British, and Chinese, the street/circle/landmark names will be a mishmash of these languages. The name of the city itself likely comes from the first group to have a strong presence there.

Neighborhoods

The easiest way to start making your city is to divide it into neighborhoods, boroughs, regions, or something similar. There are three ways you can go about this:

for me the biggest unsolved mystery of the world is whether or not My Immortal was a trollfic or a legitimate fanfiction that someone sat down and wrote.
