Okay, so the drama that set this thought off is lengthy, obnoxious, and a bit personal to stick in here, so I'll stick to my ponderings. Why is it that a man can be legitimately angry or hurt about something and not necessarily get called out severely on it, while a woman who is showing anger is la...

This just happened to me yesterday, and it's royally ticked me off. So my fiance's twin brother and his wife just had their first baby back in September. With living out here on the opposite coast from them, I've always felt like a bit of an outsider, but my sweetheart was encouraging me to try and ...

"If you would all please stop eating her and see an official at once." Who was still eating after the original announcement of " the main course is people"? XD This manga is awesome. I immediately started reading it, and I was in love after chapter one. I know! Fran is so awesome. And she really do...

Oh, yuck. That's a hell of a thing to come across while working. Generally speaking, I'm meh to mildly squicked with maggots. I don't mind the ones used in medicine to clean wounds, but sometimes the ones out in the wild kinda bother me. Though that could be due to the smell of whatever it is they'r...

here I go reviving this thread again, but like before I actually do have something to add. I hate it when other players try to "fix" your characters. One of the most frustrating examples I can think of is once I was playing as a blind girl in a game and just about every session I got "Oh I can cure...

At the risk of starting a "oh noes they're sick and can't control it, poor things ;_;" "no they're idiots and need to grow up rawr!!11" debate I have to ask this.

I fully understand why child services was brought in on this. The kid was 13 and therefore they had to make sure this was her choice and not something her parents were forcing on her, and that she clearly knew what she was doing. At that age not everyone is capable of making these choices rationall...

One bunch of cuts that always annoys me take place during the R episode in which Saphir dies. In the dub, a lot of the interaction between him and Petz is cut, as well as many of the scenes of her after his death. I really felt it took away a lot of the impact of his death, to have those scenes hack...

I put a big write-up in my LJ with my thoughts on the election. I was extremely "meh" throughout the entire thing; neither candidate really resonated with me enough to make me a supporter. In the end, I'll remain cautiously open-minded about Obama until I see him in action. If he does great, awesome...

Now, it's been a while since I had my hands on the mangas (though with this job of mine, I should likely start looking into getting them off eBay or something, shouldn't I?), so this might be way off-base, but how useful is Mamoru in the manga compared to his anime counterpart? I mean, is he honestl...

The fact that enough of America watches this shit, therefore creating more and more stupid drivel for her to star in, lowers my faith in humanity even more. To me, what's worse than even this is that there are people who are willing to participate in shit like this. I can understand people wanting ...

It's been some time since I had the mangas in front of me, but I always thought Ami/Mercury got shafted pretty badly in the manga-to-anime transition. It's almost as though the show's writers took a handful of her traits and molded her around them, which made her a far more shallow character than sh...

I love Yathzee's reviews. There isn't any I don't like, and he does a great job tearing into games. My current favorite right now is the one where he publicly responds to the slew of hate e-mauils he got after his review of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. XD Needless to say, I check up every Wednesday for...

What really annoys me is when you're told something is permissible at one point in time, then you learn some time later when you go by that "rule" that the rules changed...and no one bothered to tell people. For my school, I get fee waivers because of my income. Because I don't make tons of money, I...

I despise the Bratz dolls as well, if only because they look absolutely hideous. Seriously, give me a Barbie anyday over those dolls. And I find this quite interesting as well. Mattel wins first Bratz battle I doubt this means the beginning of the end for Bratz dolls, but it's still quite interesting.

I still remember the "bubble gum" line from the dubbed version of "Battle in the Space-Time Corridor" from R. Ordinarily, I tolerated most of the dub's dumb lines, but this one I couldn't. It went something like this: MoTD (to Rini): "Oh, I'm so scared. What are you gonna do kid, stick bubble gum in...
