ANN reviewed Arceus and the Jewel of Life

next time, ANN, try to your anti-Pokemon bias a little less obvious, kay?

I've come to the conclusion they are as follows:

1. News story is posted. If OP is Big Lutz or Edrear Warlock proceed to step 3.
2. Civil discussion of news story.
3. Lutz or Edrear posts a news link from either Washington Post, National Standard, The Blaze, Newsmax, Fox News, or Hot Air, full of faulty reporting and make fail comments full of hyperbole and strawmen arguments
4. Other users point out holes in BL and/or EW's post(s). 
5. BL and/or EW proceed to get asspained and point out "hypocrisy" in the other users' comments, ignoring the hypocrisy and misinformation in their own posts even when it is clearly drawn to their attention
6. Repeat 3-5 as necessary until parties are sick of BL and/or EW's circular reasoning and abandon thread so that BL and/or EW's post remains the most recent one in that thread.
7. Repeat steps 1-6 or alternately 3-6 for any other news threads.

Congratulations, you have now created the wankiest current events subforum on any Pokemon forum.
TBH at this point I may come up with a drinking game for The Real World. It's the forum you can't help but love to hate.

Months after release, people are offended by the Monster High line because of Clawdeen.

okay I know, Moff's Law and stuff, but seriously? It's humor. Clawdeen's message isn't "girls, you have to shave to be beautiful", it's a joke because werewolves are furry and it's poking fun at that. This looks like one annoying author  trying to sell her book, and if she actually took the time to see that the whole message of the line is to love yourself for who you are and accept others for their differences.

Australia annoys the shit out of me sometimes.

So, another Gen Con come and gone (sniff). Of course, I would be remiss if I didn't share my pictures.

So... here-a we go!

Read the article. Yes. That is what the Kool Aid drinking teenage fans are like. Of the "new Harry Potter." I'm not usually one to knock fandoms, but... come on. Almost every thing I see from the Twilight fandom is EXACTLY like the comments above. At least with Pokemon, I mock some of the more outrageous elements of the fandom on a regular basis. As do most other fans I know of.

And my reaction to this story:

Yarg. Twilight. If you haven't read it... horrible book. Horrible series. Not as good as all the emo/goth kids tell you. Just trust me on this. (And I'm sick of everyone comparing it to Harry Potter, btw. Harry Potter was, you know, enjoyable.)

Find yourself a Libba Bray book if you want a good Goth romance, they're actually EXCITING. Really. Just... yeah.

Really. Is there any way to communicate to your cat(s) that however close to the window it may be, my desk is NOT a suitable route of egress?

Seriously. I understand that yes, it is convenient and all, but what's not convenient is my desk is home to my Team Rocket figures, my Rayquaza tin of pens and pencils, and Tracey's stylus (in its handy little holder), all of which are frequently knocked over in their subsequent wake (my James figure already got the little peg on his base permanently lodged in his left foot in this way.)

This is especially annoying sometimes at night when there's thunderstorms and they get freaked out by them and end up running away like the furry cowards they are, usually knocking crap off my little bookshelf as well in their panic (namely, the little vase of fake red and black roses/my cosplay black tulip- thankfully, no long term damage to them has been sustained the three or four times it's been knocked over.)

I mean, really. It's such a pain to have to go back behind my desk and fish whatever stuff they've toppled over back out, or scoop up all the pens and pencils and rearrange them all in the tin so they fit.

And people ask how I manage to write Persian so well in my fan fiction. I have to deal with two of them (the other two kitties like to stay in hiding) on a daily basis, believe me. No wonder Giovanni is always so pissed off.
