Chuck Wendig says what needs to be said.
The height of King Kong is difficult to ascertain — in the original 1933 movie, they claim he’s 25 feet tall, but various practical models were sized for Kongs ranging from 18 to 40 feet.
But going with the official 25-foot (7m, 62cm) number, and if he’s proportionally the same as a gorilla:
Wikipedia says an average erect gorilla penis is 1.5 inches (4cm), and gorillas average 1.7 to 1.8 meters (5.6’ to 5.9’) in height. Let’s call that 1.75m for our purposes.
So, working that out:
175cm/4cm = 762cm/x
175x = 4(762)
175x = 3048
x = ~17.4 cm
So Kong’s penis was 17.4 cm long, which is 6.9 inches. That’s above average for a human (~5.75”), certainly, but not by a lot.
You’re welcome, Internet.
So @portablecity found a finger.
"How’s FanExpo going?" they ask. "Staying sane out there?" they joke. Suuuuure we are.
This may or may not be my fault.
I was gifted a most magical shirt at Gencon by my friend Ian. I love it so much XD.
Unfortunately I ordered a Large when I’m an XL, so I haven’t had many opportunities to wear it. I knew Porphy would appreciate some Spock lovins, even if it’s big enough for her to drown in.
Just means I’ll have to give my friends more money and order a new shirt!

First thing to go? Tough call. There are a lot of things I’d get rid of, and whichever’s first is mostly up to whatever’s bothering me this particular minute. Men’s Rights Activists? Dudes who organize visits to Dennys while covered in automatic weapons? The Ferguson PD? Video game execs who don’t want to have female protags because those games “don’t sell” to an audience which is more than 50% female? Take your pick.
First mandate: “Shut Up And Treat Each Other As Equals, You Fucks.”
What is your favorite Vampire Clan and why?
If we’re talking Vampire: The Masquerade, then the answer is Tremere.
Mostly because when I play RPGs, I tend to play the mages, and they’re the magiest of the clans. Although granted, they’re assholes.
The Tremere were one of twelve groups (Houses) based on hermetic principles which founded the Order of Hermes in the year 767. Then as it often does, the nature of magic started to change along with the world. Some spells faltered. Most damningly (to the Tremere), their immortality spells stopped working.
All the other Houses were like “no biggie, we’ll adapt.” House Tremere said “fuck this,” and started researching ways to keep their immortality.
They found vampires, dissected them, figured out how they worked, and then the House Tremere inner circle enacted rituals to become immortal vampires themselves. Downside? They lost their magic in the process, although they quickly figured out how to power a limited form of blood magic with vampiric vitae.
Not long after, Tremere himself located an Antediluvian (ancient vampire elder and clan originator), drained him dry to swallow his soul, and became the Antediluvian of the new Clan Tremere.
While the Tremere were setting themselves up in vampire society, they were simultaneously keeping their new undead nature a secret from the rest of the Order of Hermes. They actually succeeded for over a hundred years. When they did find out, the Order was not happy.
The modern Order basically has a “kill vampires on sight” policy. The assumption is that any former Hermetic House would naturally rise to the top of any organization, so any vampires they encounter are probably Tremere by default. And the Tremere must die.
