I like the inspiration for Saturn. "Hmm... what personality should we give this girl? Well Saturn has rings around it. We could give her tons of piercings... oh! She'll be punk!" I think they need more characters. Like... Earth. Earth loves to be on her computer. She spends 80% sometimes even more o...

I do pray that my kids aren't born without any significant problems, and that is one of my biggest fears. When my mom was pregnant with my younger sister, a test they ran said that she was going to be born with downs syndrome. My dad told me at work he'd just take his breaks and cry. Thank goodness...

HAHA Peachvampiress! Good lord I'm glad that I didn't even bother to go to that site. I especially love Milkey Way, who since she is supposed to represent every girl probably does not have a personality. Is there the self righteous one that always whines about authority abuse no matter how trivial i...

Some girl pissed her pants in my morning class today. For most of the class she was giggling in the back, and when it finally happened, she started cracking up laughing. At that point, the teacher pretty much ended class. I wasn't exactly sure what happened until later when I talked to one of my fri...

I came across something funny today. A classmate was talking to me about her church and about something that happened during her service. I responded that nothing ever exciting happends at Catholic masses. She just kind of looked at me and said "Don't you guys worship statues?" XD I just said not qu...

The episode "I Stutter" was very meaningful to me because I do stutter. When I was about in the 4th or 5th grade, I could barely speak a clear simple sentence. After years of speech therapy I am able to use various techniques that allow me to speak more clearly and most people today say that they ca...

As for severely mentally hadicapped... that's a much harder issue. I... have two cousins who are mentally handicapped. One, that has the most severe case of autisim I've ever seen, and the mom is in denial. Still. after 12 years. The kid is going to be a monster, and he already is. He's destroyed t...

Re: Attitudes towards People With Disabilities

Well, quite frankly, if I were mentally disabled/retarded to the point that I could not function on my own (aside from, you know, breathing), then I'd want to be euthanized, too. And if I were pregnant and found out the child I would birth would end up that way, too, I'd abort. And if I gave birth ...

Attitudes towards People With Disabilities

I'm am studying to be an Occupational Therapist, and I will probably be working with many people that have a wide variety of disabilities. I'm always angered by some of the extreme attitudes people have towards others with disabilities, specifically those with mental disabilities. I've talked with p...

I'd have to disagree about the Golden Compass. While I enjoyed the books, I found the movie to be quite dry and and forgettable. I dont' know, it just felt like there was something missing in the movie. Half the time I found myself bored and wondering when the movie would get exciting. For some reas...

The verison I do is stand in a mirror with lights off, and chant her name 100 times, and turn a light on the moment you see her face to seal her back into the mirror. It was cool, cuz one time I saw a face :D. You just about do that with any ghost. Say its name over and over again in a mirror. Are ...

aww, I kind of like Ron from Kim Possible , I think his character is endearing. The only thing that annoys me is when he has a rare heroic moment and they ruin by making a joke out of it, like his pants falls down or something. :x Geez, would it kill the writers so much to let Ron have one kick ass...

The damsel in distress "man". Or a really weak guy protagonist that is a complete screw-up or idiot that needs to be bailed out by supper self reliant /capable or kick ass female protagonist to think for him.

I wasn't sure if there was a better home for this post, so bear with me. (And if there is, point me to it and I'll repost it there.) The "typical" double-standard toward women in video games aside, I noticed something with one of my favorite RPGs when I was playing it a while back. Why is it if you...

Also, a lot of them spend many nights a week partying and drugs are quite popular on the club scene. thats really no excuse.

Here is one I get from going to anime cons.

Teenagers who are away from their parents for the first time ever. So they think that gives them the excuse to run wild and be as obnoxious as possible. And it's completely irritating for everyone else around them.
