    No, he probably won't. However, I have seen people mute weebs before because of their lack of self control when spamming useless things that they think everyone else cares about as much as them.

    Related to anime, I find it weird how obsessive some anime fans get over their shows. When I talk with people about Star Wars, or Marvel, or other 'nerdy' topics, the conversation tends to be somewhat measured and mature. Obviously we don't have super intellectual conversations, but we talk about accessible stuff like character development, storytelling, filmmaking, etc. But a lot of anime people I've talked to tend to ramble about minute and surface-level stuff, like how awesome a character's super power is or something. It would be like me spending 15 minutes talking about the technicalities of how the Transformers scan vehicle modes. I generally understand that other people don't care about that sort of thing, so I take it to a forum (like this) where people do like to discuss it. If I had a dollar for every time I've heard someone go on a loooong tangent about something insignificant in an anime they watched, I'd be rich. A lot of these people also talk like I'm familiar with the show, even though I'm not.

    I've also noticed this with some gamers. I've had people explain in-depth why certain controls are bad, and exactly why they're bad. When talking to someone who hasn't played the game, all you really need to say is "that game has bad controls". I won't be able to relate to anything much more in-depth than that, because I've never played the game.

    Obviously this is a generalization, I have talked to some very mature anime fans and gamers. But I do find it a bit weird how fans of these two things seem to be a bit more obsessive than the average 'nerd'.

    post made on February 27, 2012.

    4 months later, I ate a Krispy Kreme donut and enjoyed it.

    I guess that's how I got fat. Lulz.

    Besides the glazed donut, I like jelly donuts, powered donuts, oatmeal donuts (have a tough time finding them) and many others.

    It is not that I won't eat them (because I don't like to waste food) but some kinds I don't like that much, like sprinkles, pure chocolate donuts (the bread part is not as soft as other donuts) and I don't like that donut burger.

    Donut, 2 inch thick meat Patty with cheese inside, tomato, lettuce, a fried egg, BACON! Everyone loves bacon, another slice of cheese, chocolate syrup, peanut butter, more bacon and finish it with another donut.

    (Raps) "this is why yo' fat
    This is why yo' fat
    This is why
    This is why
    This is why yo' fat"

    Ok, the girl swinging her arms and the dancing girl are the cutest thing I've seen today.

    The close up of the girl reads

    "See my face? This is my scheming face. I squint my eyes a bit and-BACKOFF!!!"

    I love donuts and baked goods in general. Cream/pudding filled are my favorites.

    I don't think Seth Rogan's a good enough actor to star in his own films.

    I've noticed that Seth Rogan always stars in his own films, and I've walked away thinking: It was funny, but it would've been WAY funnier if he had chosen another actor for the lead role VS himself.

    Seth Rogan clearly wants all the credit- he wants to produce, direct, and act in all his films- but it's tough to do that if you aren't 10/10 in all those areas- and I feel his acting isn't that great.

    He's got good ideas for movies, he can write and create somewhat decent comedy- but a film's ideas are only as good as the actors chosen to portray and execute them- otherwise you get audience members like me feeling the way we do: Good idea, but it would've been way funnier if somebody else had acted it out.

    Another problem with being the star of his own movies: He doesn't have to audition or prove himself to anyone.

    When you're funding and backing the film, you're completely in charge- so he doesn't have to audition or prove his acting skills at all- he just decides "Yep, I'm playing that guy."- and bingo. Done.

    That's why I feel his movies have gotten the reviews they have- at least the negative ones- because if you don't have to audition for anything, then you never have to face criticism, and if you never have to face criticism, then you never have to improve- so he's just gonna keep starring in his own movies, but never getting better- because he never has to EARN his role- he just does it.

    That's why every time I see a new Seth Rogan film come out, these days I'm like: I'm sure it's funny, but it just won't be as funny as it COULD be- because HE'S the star. Let somebody else take a shot at it.

    This is one of those situations where clearly his mentality is "They're my movies. It's my money, my work, and if I want to be the star, then I will. Piss off."

    And he'd be right: They ARE his movies, and it IS his choice- but don't expect blockbuster numbers from your movies if your acting skills aren't good enough to push the ideas to their full comedic potential. They'll fall short.

    Just an opinion of mine: I appreciate a really powerful hot sauce/salsa.

    I've often found myself disappointed rather than relieved when encountering a weak hot sauce/salsa- I find myself thinking: I really wish it were hotter...

    I once had a family recipe-based hot salsa that my 1st GF had me try- I only took 1 chip, 1 scoop- and I fell to my knees. It completely shocked my system. LOL

    I was on the ground, curled up in a ball, insides on fire, eyes tearing up, sweat pumping down my face, and you know what they did? THEY LAUGHED. HYSTERICALLY. LOL

    Supposedly their homemade salsa had a reputation for bringing most people to their knees, because they told me, "You're probably the 40 or 50th person we've done that to. We always warn people, but they don't listen." LMAO!

    Since that night, I haven't tasted a stronger salsa- nothing I've had has EVER shocked my system the way theirs did.

    Nowadays, I often find myself actually disappointed by most salsa- because I feel like, in a way, my salsa tolerance and salsa preference has been heightened by it- so I often find myself going: This ain't shit...LOL

    Saying that a character who's a kickboxer wearing a sports bra, which makes said character's fairly sizeable boobs look not quite as big, is discrimination against Gamers. Seriously.

    I’m going to engage my psychic powers and deduce that this is in relation to Dead or Alive.

    Oh well yeah, don't know what game this is happening with, but sounds like those particular gamers should shut up.

    I like doing coinless runs of Mario Sunshine, can I still speak?

    Good guess, but it's the Final Fantasy 7 remake.
    You may speak, it's just those perpetually angry weirdos who get unreasonably mad about female characters in video games, either that they're there at all or that their tiddies aren't big enough, that need to shut up.

    Oh this will be about Tifa won’t it? *Googles images comparing the two* Really? She looks fine to me.


    And in my defence, DoA was a good guess.
