  2. As opposed to feeling odd topically.

    • @scribus Isn't that just a fancy way of saying 'odd things that are related to the topic'. Such as pretty much everything used to make fun of the situation in every abridged show ever.

      For some reason I have to think of this thing

      http://rainbowdash.net/url/875304

      "The Gods are showing us the truth about our past, I give you our sexy ancient Egyptian ancestors"

      You know the rest.

      I love oddical topicness, or oddness topical... or... well now both words and all variations thereof just sound made up to me.

    • @drinkingpony I had meant less "odd things" and more "things which are relevant, but to an unexpected degree." Which probably has a 90% overlap, anyway.

  3. I just had the new She-Ra explained to me by a die-hard fan of the old series

    Essentially she thinks it is like taking a beloved franchise that she feels she has supported thoughout the years, by buying merch and all. Someone got their hands on that IP because essentially you can not 'make' a new IP work in the modern oversaturated world. Then added so many new borderline cringe modern 'themes' to it till it pretty much only resembled the beloved She-Ra only in name. I mean For Fox's Sake (I choose to believe she actually said 'For Fox's Sake') they put a first draft D&D character into the show for crying out loud.

    Imagine your grandmother learned you how to make granny's apple pie, and then 20 years later she asks you to make her some apple pie just like how she used to like it. Only to have a conversation not even 5 seconds after gramma tasting it about "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU TOOK OUT THE ASBESTOS ?!?"

    Strange woman, but made some sense.

    I only know 1 person who likes new She-Ra.

        • In what world does saying "Dee Double You Aye" equate in any way faster than just saying "Driving While Intoxicated". And while I can see arguments being made for "Well, that is a difficult word to prenounce", the same happens with "Dee You Aye" 's

          Yes, in text form DWI and DUI are faster. I'll give you that.

          • "Waaah Waaah Waaah ! Our healer is not healing."

            Nonsense, you get healed the most. You guys just spread out too much for me to heal you guys effectively

            Teammate 2 : "Yeah, our Pip sucks !"

            **sigh** Wait till the end of the round... Wait till the end of the round...

            Oh hey what do you know, I got rated Most Valuable Healer at in the end of the round stat. I got WAY more than average for a Pip, and the healer on the opposite team was Seris, I outhealed Seris. Wow. Suck on that stupid team that said I could not heal !

            Aight, this is just a weird flex and rant at the same time. But hey I just started playing Paladins and this is the first actual bad salt game I had.

            • @adiwan Fans are gonna fan, untill something happens that makes them not want to be a fan anymore.

              I remember reading about some guy who had made a MCU-Wall, containing the DVD cover for every Marvel Superhero movie ever released, complaining about how he did not really like one particular movie but was still deadset on getting the thing for his wall since else his collection would be incomplete ( this was years ago )

              Extreme fans gonna extreme fan I guess.

              Hell, kinda reminds me of this 2 hour long thing of some guy who was harassing a movie critic on Discord for a debate for his opinion on a movie was SO WRONG he simply had to correct the narrative, or at least attempt to, it was a total fail and is probably one of the best examples of how to learn from other people's mistakes ( http://rainbowdash.net/url/875292 ) Its quite humorous at times, but I am not sure if I can recommend it unless if you got 2 hours to waste.

              ( Such as when on CCTV monitor duty at work at night)

            • @drinkingpony Oh, right, the punchline. At one point this guy ( the one who repeatedly went "DEBATE ME ! DEBATE ME !" ) had to admit that the movie just was not that defendable, or even good. But then he said "But you are still going to get the blueray/dvd right" and was promptly laughed at in a "Haha, but why tho ? We dislike/hate the movie"

            Does it have anything to do with them not using the superior 230V format ?
