@BestGirlGrace@social.illegalpornography.com indeed it is, and sometimes the only reasonable way of checking something. (If you've ever heard of the 5 or 6% rule in investing it was made by doing a Monte Carlo sim across a century of stock market records)

@LilFluff Huh, neat. If nothing else, it makes this whole situation feel a lot more scientific, you know?

Don't let the name fool you. All the pornography here is legal, and much of it is hand-written. No fascists, no bigots.
