How do you feel about Jelly Bellies though?
I have mixed feelings about them. If they are like real flavors that people actually like then theyre great : p But if they have like "ear wax" and other disgusting things then I dont understand why anyone would waste their money on them : p

This gives me an idea for a thread, but bleh Im just too unmotivated to make it

yooooo, time to be an edgelord

-While the idea animation is innherently for children is stupid and harmful, it has resulted in some cringe content: you often see young, emotionally-immature people trying way too hard to make a children's cartoon more "dark" and "mature" than it actually is and propping up shallow or juvenile works like they're worthy of being in the western canon.

-Relatedly, people ascribe way too much importance to "art"

-nerd" media is becoming dangerously inbred

-Fans running the asylum in long-running pulp franchises only ever result in Terrible Things (don't think this is actually unpopular though)

^You've been looking at too many of Bleedman's works haven't you?

Cause Grim Tales From Down Below and the Powerpuff Girls Doujinshi are exactly that sort of shallow attempt to make an all ages cartoon darker than it should be. Complete with Mandy being responsible for 9/11 and the Holocaust.

Eh, I don't think Doctor Who has done too badly from it. Every single Doctor Who showrunner and doctor has been a fan of the show.

I'll admit I had primarily the old Star Wars EU and american superhero comics when saying that. Obsessive, humourless nerds attempting to "explain" special effects errors, connecting everything and to create continuity for its own sake no matter how contrived or inane it is ("character x" is actually an alternate/time-travelling/disguise for [a character that appeared on one page of an obscure comic], the guy who says "Look sir, droids!" in Star Wars episode 4 having a ridiculously huge backstory) and attempts to redeem "stupid" and "childish" concepts that only make things MORE stupid.

Yes really:

Well, not just 9/11. Also apparently the sinking of the Titanic, the rise of Adolf Hitler, that Vietnamese rebel getting shot, the Hindenberg exploding and Hurricane Katrina among others.

It's the most over the top attempt to be grimdark ever.

Then again, not sure why I'm complaining. Mario got a fan game where Hitler takes over the Mushroom Kingdom before teaming up with Al Quaeda and declaring war on America. That's pretty insane too:

I actually like games like that. I have always liked the concept of a real-life villain invading fictional universes.

They're meant to be a gag sort of gift rather than anything anyone would buy for themselves for enjoyment.
