Youchip, as long as it makes them happy and they don't hurt anyone by doing it - then why the hell not? It's their life and if they're going to regret their choices later in life, they won't have anyone other to blame than themselves. By the same logic you can tell that priests or nuns are limiting themselves. In both cases it's devotion and if you'd ask me, it's more silly to devote oneself into big G in the sky who might be nonexistant than to My Little Pony. And I believe that the first bunch made more wrong then latter, if you'd ask me.
Also, for the record - I don't even like the MLP show.

Right now I'm in ANOTHER fight with her. This time I'm keeping my head cooler then normally. I also get help from one of my best friends to explain everything to her. Hope that will clear some things up with her. I'm feeling less and less torment when I am fighting with her.

Hearing about the ProtectIP bill, now renamed conveniently as the E-PARASITE bill, an attempt to censor the Internet by Republican politicians. It would allow a small group of idiots who don't know what they're doing to bypass fair use laws, and US courts, to instantly shut down any website they consider as infringing copyright laws and target non-US sites that naturally don't abide by US internet laws. Sites like Google, Youtube, tumblr, blogspot, facebook and any other site that allows the user the ability to post what they want would be considered illegal. Wave goodbye to collected Curios or Deviantart if it get approved by congress. It's also worse than that; It would allow them to rewrite the internet, making less reliable and more unstable. Shit like this needs to be stopped. NOW!

Cute little video to explain things better

Coming home from a weekend with friends to a flooded bathroom! Inconsiderate harlot adds another nail to the coffin of horrible roommate... soaked towels and ShamWow's left crumpled up on the floor and on the counter to mold and mildew, with huge water puddles still left over, and no note explaining what happened, and no explanation period. I am less than pleased, and that's putting it lightly.

Okay, I've really tried to be optimistic about this but I really can't be anymore. This is by far the worst holiday my family and I have ever had, and it's not over yet..

It started off last week with me getting sick followed by my mother, and both of us staying that way the entire week. This put us out from seeing my Grandfather and my Uncle (who had flown in from the east coast for Xmas) until after the holiday, as we couldn't afford to infect my 87 year old grandfather with the nasty bug we both had. On top of that, during the middle of the week my Grandfather's sister (my aunt) passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer's. The funeral was scheduled right after Christmas so we had to spend a lot of time (while sick) trying to coordinate last minute with my aunt's family since they wanted my Mom to sing during the ceremony. It wasn't something either of us wanted to deal with at that time and just put a further damper on the whole holiday.

It gets even worse tho. A day or so after my aunt died, my grandfather fell down in his kitchen while trying to pickup something. My uncle was there to help him up (thank god) but afterwards my grandpa had lost the ability to stand even tho it had appeared to have been a minor slip at first. Things didn't get better after a day or so, so my uncle had to call an ambulance to take my grandfather too the hospital. He's been in the hospital for several days now and hasn't been improving. In fact now he's suffering from some sort of delirium and hallucinations that the doctors are currently unable to explain. I'm scared there's something wrong with his head and that I may lose the person whom I looked up too my whole life. I don't know how I could deal with that right now.

Anyway there's been so much tragedy going on that Christmas has been postponed indefinitely for my family and I'm running out of faith that New Years will be any better. Frankly, I've never had the holidays be this bad before. They've always been something I look forward to, but this year I just want them to end.

As someone who's been a longtime supporter of Dr. Paul, I can tell you the way he gets treated by media still angers me to this day, even tho I have come to expect it by now. Ever since I saw Andersen Cooper pass Ron over for a question during '08 debates I've become much more aware of how the MSM tries to manipulate things like voting in this country. In fact, more recently, the way the've been continuously ignoring or mocking him (saying things like "Ron Paul can't win" is a regular talking point on both CNN and FOX) just serves to underscore how crooked the lame-stream media has become these days. I swear during one of the recent debates I wanted to smack John King in the face after he tried to pass Ron over on a question again. Mad Luckily the audience boo'd Kings sorry ass this time and he was forced to come back to Paul. One day I truely hope social media and citizen journalism replaces the corporate presstitutes we have now.

well you just got to keep calling them out on there BS. In the words of Gerald Celente Heman Cain, Michele Bachmann, and Rick Perry all said God told them to run. Either they lied or God is batting 0-3 Because all 3 of those losers struck out. Now just put all of Rommny, Santorum, and Gingrich BS on full blast and they will sink as well.

This thread should be renamed Things that piss you off because right now I am Really fucking pissed off!

I list an item on Ebay today. I went through all the procedures to get on there. Takes me a week of verifying my paypal, finding out how much item will weigh, getting a box to fit it in, etc ect ETC.

I finally list it (and this is an expensive piece of kit). Within an hour someone buys it, I'm just about send the invoice to them and

OH HI. THIS IS EBAY. SORRY BUT THIS BUYER IS A BIG FAT FAKE. WE JUST TOOK YOUR ITEM OFF. SORRYLOLTRYAGAIN



I'm sorry. Why did they have to take it off? Couldn't they simply block that user and let someone else have a try?

I now have to relist it, spend more money to do that. Oh and you know what the most insulting part was? It was £400. I can only sell 10 items of £650 worth of items a month. So what's going to happen is I relist it and another troll will come along and fuck it all up for me again. Kick me down and fuck with me.

And so

The sheer ignorance I see daily. I work in retail and some of my customers that come through it's just....~sigh~ and then I log onto the internet to get away from it...and it's still there.

When a guy chimes in out of no where about politics and religion and thinks his opinion carries weight because he's either yelling into the mic or that hes typing all caps. I'll call that "entitlement" the world doesn't owe you shit you self important fuck so hush...

Anyone who acts like an ass because they think they can. I find most celebrities are more sociable than some people. If kevin sorbo is more humble than you, there is a pride issue there.

finally, when people wear their clothes too tight..they look like sausages...

Annoying to no end are people who drive too slow. Even worse are the ones who pull out in front of you at the last second (like they're in such a hurry) then they proceed to drive 6 miles per hour below the speed limit.

oh traffic irritants are people who take a right exit on the freeway from all the way in the left lane. people who decide to stop in the left lane to try and get into the middle or right lane by waiting for an opening to pass them. (yes i have personally seen this on several occasions i live in NY were people seem to have forgotten how to drive) people who come to a T intersection and just blow through it just because there is no physical stop sign though it is a standard rule that by default you stop. and finally worst of all are the mother effing rubber neckers.

I work at a hardware store; biggest grind is people coming in with a vague description of a household problem, having not even looked into solving it themselves before they came in, and expecting me to know exactly what's wrong in a circuit I haven't even seen.

What grinds my gears most is mode in writing novels. For example, after Twilight was published and had success, suddenly bookshops were submerged by teen crappy vampire stories. The point is, the major part of the authors don't even try to innovate - or to write in a good way.

Fantasy genre is dead at the moment.

I wish I could revive him for a moment, just to show those guys that proper writing is possible - but is taking me forever.

Don't misunderstand: I was starting a new point. My fault it was not clear.

Twilight has no genre but crap.

But still, I can't find good innovation. And still, I hate when people start to follow the wave of success with an endless stream of clons.

although it is true many are imitators of what has come before them it is nice o see sometimes how they use the same element basics to make their own story. Robert Jordan was a great writer for fantasy though he did begin to drag out the story a bit too much near the last few books before he died. May he RIP. also the ones who started the whole genera like Tolkien and C. S Lewis. but there are plenty of writers out there who have not sold out to the Hollywood buck yet. Terry Goodkind unfortunately was one of those sell outs. but if you are willing to look carefully you will find the jewels. though they are the same to an extent always fun to see what new twists they manage to put in.

700 Genre on Tue Nov 13, 2012 1:18 pm

Fantasy is a broad term that does include The Lord of the Rings, Twilight and Harry Potter together. If some work of fantasy is really poorly made it isn't exiled from the genre. It's a lot like the way the word "comics" has it's own reputation and some people find it hard to take comics seriously. That's the reason a lot of artists prefer the term "sequential art". But regardless of quality or the number of colors in the pallette comics are comics.
