    I've seen a lot of dudes who probably are in either, their 30's, 40's, etc, wtih a normal life just as the rest of us.


    But the point here is, that somes are REALLY attached to their hobby, and they take it too far aside from being collecting.

    Reaching a religious-side.


    It doesn't matter what you collect or what do you want, the negative point comes you feel so attached to it that attack others that aren't of the same bread.

    Most of this type of discussion in this forum comes from, example, when a MP is announced, and it's either BW or Movie, or G1 (ANYTHING, at this point), the fans attached to one of the three will be either, satisfied or (here comes the bad part) feel a sense of negitvity when another different crowd it's getting treatment but theirs, they can reach even attack the people of the another demographic just to put all their frustration using that single thing as an excuse, wich is very childish.


    It doesn't matter the situation, anything similar to this, shows how the people can come, the worst side of all crowds.

    dude, no one toy will make EVERY fan happy. We come here to voice our opinions, whether they are appropriate or inappropriate, this is the place to do it. Yes, some people are more into their collection and collecting than others, but as long as it doesn't get in the way (too much at least) of life, then its fine. The only time it really becomes a problem is when you use your money for toys instead of using your money for your responsibilities. If you can't get to work because you spent money on toys and can't afford to put gas in your car, then you have a problem. If you are sick and you can't go to the doctor because you spent your money on toys, then you have a problem. If you can't afford rent because you bought MP BW Megatron for 350 bucks, then you have a problem. There is nothing wrong with a child of the 80s who is now in their 40s having fun with a hobby of collecting. Before toys, people collected stamps and baseball cards, and coins, and war miniatures. There always has and always will be collecting and this is the place where we can vent about it.

    Well, this thread is doomed from the start.

    Don’t forget, @Norm West, that name-calling, flame-baiting, bullying, and narcissistic ignorance are also behaviors common in manchildren.

    The real question here is what type of bread do you identify with?

    Rye, Wheat, Pumpernickel, Sourdough.....

    Every hobby is going to have fanatics. Whether or not you engage with them or ignore them... is your call.

    Literally the first thing I did when I saw the thread title: :rolleyes: 

    Try the rye or the kaiser, or the wheat or the white.
    Maybe I can suggest an appetizer.

    Old school Weird Al reference :D

    I actually prefer wheat or whole grain bread. Makes for a tasty "manchild whining about other manchildren" sandwich.
    Deee-licious.

    I made the transition to sourdough years ago. I don't know what the fuck you heathens are still identifying with the inferior bread types. Goddamn barbarians...

    Well, it's a great question.

    To be honest I mainly use bread for making French toast/eggy bread, so I tend to prefer a thick sliced white wheat bread for that. Ideally you're looking for something that's absorbent and will take on that beautiful golden hue when you cook it. Now, this is probably quite controversial and I can see a lot of high emotions and perhaps even name calling on both sides, but rather than the traditional sweet French toast, done with cinnamon and maple syrup, I actually prefer it savoury. Honestly, try it sometime. I love it with rock salt, freshly ground pepper, ketchup and 'brown sauce'. One time I made a really great 'Mexican' French toast by using a tiny bit of left over chilli con carne, tortilla chips, and some coriander (aka cilantro). French toast really is surprisingly versatile done savoury.

    What? This is more interesting than indulging some barely articulate, passive aggressive rant, right?

    Hedgehog bread. Nice chewy crust, very soft bread. And it has a funny name.

    Good call. Challah bread is one of my top favorites too and it definitely makes the best French toast!

    As a side for many meals, I’ve recently been partial to a good pugliese or a focaccia.

    Mmm… I think I need to make a trip to the bakery…
