Value yourself and your time irrespective of what consumerist culture has to say about it

I only barely and unwillingly know anything about Naruto but I'm still surprised that the dub quotes that achieved infamy were "believe it" and "ninja info cards" and not the frankly incredible line "Naruto, you have a self-abusive personality. It's called masochism"

I've been thinking a bit about the recent revival of demons and witches as the villains of movies. This post is an attempt to take all of my thoughts on the matter and boil it down into something coherent. And long, although it's broken up a bit with some nice pictures. (I wanted to put in 90s clipart, but I didn't. The sacrifices I make for you guys!)

Content warning: This post contains discussion of the Satanic Panic and Satanic ritual abuse.

I'll play as "The Dragon", Bruce Ryu! He's a kung fu master!

JONOUCHI
Hey, he looks just like Bruce Lee!

"Oh my god, Jonouchi. You dense motherfucker. You can't just say 'Bruce Lee'. Jesus Christ. You think I'm talking about 'Bruce Ryu' because I want to? You think those little shits over in Shaman King have 'Lee Bailong' of their own volition? Fuck no! Every one of us would be Bruce Lee if we could, even the girls! But Shueisha's legal department is like 'nurble nurble personality rights nurble expensive lawsuits' so we change one kanji or whatever, and even literal children accept that if they want to keep reading Jump every week they shouldn't call too much attention to it. And you come along and the first words out of your mouth are HE LOOKS LIKE BRUCE LEE, because you think you're the first one to notice, I guess. Thanks for ruining everything, Jonouchi. You're dead to me."

Damn, son. On a scale from "not that terrible" to "literally heresy" how bad is your movie

Why do we even have the phrase "premarital sex"? Surely "extramarital" covers everything in the "premarital" set; if one is not married, then all sex is outside of marriage. Listing them both -- "premarital and extramarital sex" -- as many do is pointless and cumbersome.

Char is not an animal. Char is a FISH.

🙄 😢 ☹ Your use of the word "animals" was misleading since the names include rodents, birds, fish, snakes, etc.

I didn't like this teaser because I didn't think that pheasant would be one of the 'animals' because it isn't actually AN ANIMAL.

I was looking at this puzzle where you were supposed to find the names of animals in a long string, and what the fuck
