In this EI-report you see an avatar with mini nitemare-ish wings. But I don't think they're the original mini nm wings. Do you have any idea what they are or where they come from? They're not part of this Pieces Of You EI. Link:
Reading your PM.
It's interesting that fandoms are more of a girl-thing than a guy-thing. I think collecting/being dedicated to something in general isn't something gender-specific. But actually going crazy about something and forming huge groups has a social-aspect and women are more active on that front.
It's kind of lame isn't it that there is always one typically male plus a typically feminine boy in a cliche boy-boy relationship. I refuse to believe that's always the case. And of course virginity/a first time is important rolleyes
lol @ the Sigmund Freud explanation xD
I've never heard of the 'women are like a bucket full of crabs' comparison. I like it. It's pretty good. It's the glass ceiling, also inforced by women not just by men. There's a lot of jealousy going on there. I don't know if women are generally more jealous than men. It's quite likely if you keep comparing yourself in social situations instead of being on your own as you described before.
Even though yaoi isn't my thing at all, I do think it promotes openmindedness towards homosexuality. I'm sure there's a lot of hentai about female-dominated series. There are lots of harem-shows too to counterbalance the huge yaoi and yuri fandoms. Btw I also think there's plenty of women who like yuri. And it's not male dominated (girl + girl) after all.
I discovered something hilarious yesterday. It won't make a lot of sense to you but I'll try to explain to it (since it's only funny in Dutch).
In google I looked up the definiion of galled (to gall). Which translates to 'make someone feel annoyed'. So I wanted to see the Dutch translation of that and it translates to 'AliB' rofl Now you don't know who Ali B is, but he's a Dutch celebrity and apparently the definition of being annoying rofl I think that AliB google glitch might appear more frequently. Not just for this word.
Brad ran into another glitch in Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag: There was a ship floating all over the place xD Brad was like 'What the..'
So.. have you heard of the Icebucket Challenge?
I think it's really stupid. It's one of those popular things that are all about 'look at me on youtube', doing something that has nothing to do with the actual goal (raising money for a charity). It doesn't suprise me that lots of people participate in this nonsense. Once it gets rolling... people don't dare to say no anymore.
But what did surprise me is that a Dutch celebrity who is known for her stupidity actually refused. So now I have a more positive opinion of her. Of course back then it was new and I'm sure she would have 'fallen' for it too if she had been asked today.
Brad was talking about the game Dead Rising 3. Some crazy zombie-killing game. He said that lots of people reached his channel after he played Dead Rising 2. I don't think it will be really my thing. Why? You should google for Dead Rising 3 and look at one of the images.. of a guy killing zombies practically naked. gonk Just..no.. I don't think Brad would wear that outfit, but still.
In the LOTR series the rings constantly provides tension and danger. While Bilbo Baggins is wearing the ring for hours straight and is just having a lot of fun with it (disappearing tricks, reappearing tricks). I suppose the risk wasn't there yet?
The Hobbit is the prelude to the Lord of the Rings. I have to say that I'm glad that he used a more serious tone in those books (a talking dragon, seriously gonk ). Did you read the book? I'm pretty close to the end now. I really wonder what they did with the movie. They surely gave the main hobbit character a younger look. I think there might be a good chance that the movie will be better than the book.
I also think they made good choices with the LOTR movies (leaving out Tom Bombadil rofl ). The look they gave Gollum is perfect too. He's supposed to be dark, but this pale look is much better.
Goodness gracious.. people made Tiny Box Tim Plushies?
I finally reached the part in Assassin's Creed 4 Black Flag where they revealed that the James Kidd character was indeed a girl.
Brad said that he thought that the pirate singing was therapeutic xD
Brad was also attacked by a crocodile in the game. They're pretty nasty. Same case with sharks.
I found another strange fault with the game: even if it's foggy and there is no wind, you can still set sail and travel at full speed. An even bigger fault is that you frequently have to kill a certain target (for example the captain of a ship) in a mission and as soon as you've killed that target, all other enemies just disappear/the fighting stops. In other words: you can cheat your way through the mission by just running to the target and kill it.
